About Mary Ann Silvey

A native of Western NC, I grew up in Asheville and spent summers in Lake Lure where my parents built a summer home, which became the family hideaway for relaxation and recreation. Eventually the Lake Lure hideaway became my year-round home. In 1999,my time share week in Ormond Beach became my new hideaway which I enjoyed so much that I never exchanged for another location.

After raising four children and spending 33 years as a school teacher and counselor, I retired, but spent another 7 years working in schools part-time and currently serving as a town commissioner in Lake Lure.

In 2010 I married my husband, Bill who is retired from US Air Force and US Postal Service. Together we enjoy working in crafts and community activities. Bill is a woodworker who specializes in converting obsolete and antique post office box doors into coin banks and handgun safes. I create unique hand-braided wool rugs and demonstrate at historic landmarks and the Village of Yesteryear at the NC State Fair. We enjoy escapes to Ormond Beach, and have furnished the cottage to provide a restful reflection of our enjoyment of seascapes and tropical plants. We personally planted and maintain palms, ornamentals, and tropical plants, beginning with a habiscus which was a Mother's Day gift and made the trip from NC in 2009! The cottage is our current hideaway, where we look forward to spending more time soon and sharing with family, friends, and guests who will enjoy and find comfort and renewal.

Mary Ann Silvey purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Mary Ann Silvey chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

For three years I looked at condos and houses for a place where I could spend more time in Florida during my retirement years. Ormond was my choice because the climate is comfortable year-round. Cold days are rare in winter, and the ocean breeze provides relief from Summer's heat. Since my family included 'Diva', a sweet, loving Doberman Pinccher, the cottage had room, inside and out to provide privacy and allow pets to be included. The fenced back yard was a definite plus for us. We have cultivated flowering jasmine vines which have covered the fence, creating privacy for outdoor living, dining and sunning. The garage and storage shed provide ample storage for lawn furniture, bicycles, beach gear, utility wagon and even the fully decorated Christmas tree.

What makes this cottage unique

2015 addition: New HP printer.

2014 updates: Full service digital cable TV service, flat screen HDTV, unlimited cable internet, new roof, digital conrol for irrigation system with battery backup.

Save your drinking water money! City water passes though our purification system and results in pure, soft water throughout the cottage. Plumbing and hot water system were replaced in 2010.

A well provides irrigation for the lawn and gardens automatically. A timer controls the sprinkler system after dark, while you sleep.

Located between Flagler and Daytona Beaches, surrounded by state parks & recreation areas on the Halifax River and a short drive to ocean piers, the cottage is only a short walk to the quiet, non-commercial beach. Restaurants, shopping, theaters,art museum, library and family entertainment or nite spots are conveniently located a short drive away.

Historic St. Augustine, shopping outlets, Ponce Lighthouse, Casino Cruises, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona Speedway are nearby attractions. Drive an hour

southwest of Daytona on I-4 to Orlando or Sanford Airports and central Florida attractions, including Disney, Seaworld, Universal Studios, LeggoLand and more. Jacksonville airport is 1 1/2 hours North on I-95.

Quiet getaway, perfect for anyone with dogs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a few nights over the Labor Day weekend and found the nearby beaches to be beautiful, within walking distance, and fairly quiet for the long weekend. Property was clean and was exactly as advertised. Our dogs enjoyed the fenced off backyard, and we liked being within a short drive to many great restaurants.

We stayed at this beautiful property for 2 weeks. Everything is as stated on the website. Very close to the river, quite neighborhood. We saw some very beautiful sunsets just around the curve from the house. You will not be disappointed if you book this home, nice fenced yard for the puppies too. Thank you Mary Ann for a great 2 weeks.

Walk to the beach from this well maintained, comfortable, truly pet friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy here. Ormond-by-the-sea is an area that is central to all the fun places yet far enough away to feel private. This home was fully appointed with many personal touches to make your stay absolutely perfect. The fenced in back yard was perfect for my dogs and the neighborhood is nice and safe for walking. The description of home was perfectly accurate. It was clean and comfortable. The owner answered an inquiry I had right away. I would absolutely recommend the property to my friends and family and I would definitely rent again.

Wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Florida many times over the last 25 years, but never experienced the comfort, peaceful, and quiet neighborhood we stayed at here in MaryAnn's home. As u get older I guess all the noise and congestion from being in a cramped hotel gets to u, this place has spoiled us in one week. We would really like to come back here real soon, even if it is just to relax. The pictures shown of the place are super, but it is even more beautiful being here. Everything was right here at our fingertips, and we needed for nothing. The home is very private and the fenced in backyard was amazing for just sitting out and reading and drinking your coffee. The neighbors on both side were so sweet, one of them helped my husband move his little trailer that he pulled down. The other neighbor had a camper for sale and when our friends came over and he took all of us to look at it, I loved it but I told my husband, I would much rather rent from MaryAnn instead of having the camper. The home was in walking distance to the intercoastal waterway 1 block and 2 1/2 blocked to ocean but with my back and spine issues, I drove up and parked right at the beach and spent the day. If MaryAnn will have us again, I surely will book with her again. My husband loved the enclosed garage so he could keep his motorcycle inside and not have to worry about it. The big standup shower off from the Florida room was awesome, I had to throw that in here! I really can't say enough about this home, except if u r looking to rent, this is the place! Thanks again, MaryAnn

this cottage is as cozy as it looks!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation weeks, and look forward to our next visit. The cottage is located in a quiet neighbourhood, very close to the inter coastal waterway and just a pleasant stroll to the beach at the other end of the street. If preferred you can drive to the beach, and park right there.

The location is perfect, close but not too close to the noise and hustle bustle of Daytona. With open stretches of sandy beach, and just a scattered number of beach blankets you really feel like you are "on vacation."

We found the property to be very clean and well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Furniture is clean and comfortable. The beds are in excellent condition and conducive to a great nights sleep.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property.
