Gorgeous beach house on a private beach access road in sunny Ormond Beach. This remodeled house has it all!

There are only 8 houses on this private access road with direct access to the beach! This section of the beach is reserved for pedestrians, no vehicles allowed. The home has an open floor plan with plenty of visiting space and allows for great ocean views through the wall of glass facing the beach. Just look at the recent photos for proof!

RELAX in this fully furnished bungalow with updated furniture, double beds in spacious bedrooms, large dining room table and convenient extended bar top for entertaining along with a stocked kitchen with all the essentials (dishes, cooking pots, silverware, toaster, coffeemaker, blender, etc.) and modern stainless steel appliances.

Beach bikes, ocean kayaks, water toys, BBQ grill, outside seating and dining table are all tucked away in the garage for your use!

Plenty of dining options, banks and a Publix Supermarket are within walking distance. For additional activities, drive a few minutes south on A1A to the Daytona Oceanwalk with restaurants, movie cinema, lively boardwalk with nighttime activities and the Daytona Lagoon Waterpark or head north to Flagler Beach and historic St. Augustine. Even Orlando's theme parks are only 45 min away for a perfect day-trip.

Note to pet owners: While your (well-behaved) pets are welcome in our home and in the neighborhood, Volusia County does not allow dogs on the beach. (We do sometimes see Owners with their dogs early in the morning before beach patrol starts working.) There is a dog park less than a mile north of the house which is very popular with local pet owners

*Note: $75 professional cleaning fee at move out.

About Owner- Peter McNiece

We live and work in Gainesville and are fortunate enough to enjoy our fabulous beach house on the weekends. Husband is an avid Hobie Cat sailor and we spend the summer weekends sailing and kayaking in the gorgeous ocean just steps from our door. Work and cooler temperatures prevent us from using the house as much in the winter so we're looking for long term renters to take extra special care of the home while enjoying all it has to offer!

Owner- Peter McNiece purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner- Peter McNiece chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

Location, location, location! Many other properties were available on the other side of A1A, but being TRULY beach front was a priority to us. We find many listings advertising themselves as oceanfront or oceanview but are blocks from the water. We see the sand and the surf while sitting on our couch or cooking meals in the kitchen and love it!

What makes this house unique

Too numerous to mention! Just read the description again- you'll get the idea!

Note: You can pay for your vacation with an eCheck without incurring any additional fees. If you pay with a credit card, however, you will be charged processing fees by VRBO's payment system. These will be deducted from your Security Deposit so I encourage everyone to pay with an eCheck.

Lovely quiet well kept house with quick access to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We recently had the opportunity to spend 5 days at this lovely house on the beach. We had a quiet relaxing stay and the beach was just a few hundred feet from the door. It was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the condos and tourist areas. There is a grocery store and multiple restaurants right down the road which was perfect for our needs. This house is well taken care of, and the garage is fully stocked with beach accessories for all to enjoy. We recommend this beach house and would stay here again.

Great Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was all we were looking for in a vacation home. The view of the ocean was perfect, all the beach amenities we wanted to use they had, with a great location for local restaurants. Also the owners were easy to communicate with and would respond quickly to all our questions. As soon as we walked in we knew we selected the best house in the area for our trip. It was clean and the kids loved the candy machine in the kitchen. The garage had anything and everything needed for playing or relaxing on the beach. Having the ability to use beach chairs, toys, and bogie boards was a highlight for us. A one minute walk to the beach made lunch time a breeze since we could walk up, make lunch and be back to the beach within an hour. Where you walk out to on the beach was nice and quiet so we could spread out and not worry about being in someone’s way. The location was easy to get to all the local top restaurants we found on trip advisor. We found the House of Doughnuts and a nice Italian restaurant within walking distance.

Great house with easy beach access.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our family of 4. 2 adults and 2 small kids. The house is stocked so well with everything you could possibly need for a trip. The beach is beautiful, clean, and family friendly. The location is great to awesome restaurants and activities. I highly recommend staying here. The only thing I would recommend are new mattresses on the beds.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is my family's THIRD summer staying here! It is perfect! Everything you could possibly need is already at the house-- just bring clothes! Pete is excellent at communicating any thing you may need assistance with. This has quickly become one of my girls' favorite trips every year!

What a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The blue water of the Atlantic Ocean greeted us when we arrived. As we opened the door of your beachhouse, we felt relaxed and welcomed. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and more.

My grandchildren were delighted with the candy machines. We were all pleased with the spaciousness of the living and kitchen area. And all of us enjoyed the ocean view through the windows and french doors. The only suggestions I would make are the beds could be a little more comfortable.

Our vacation at your beach house was very memorable and enjoyed by my entire family. Hope to see the same beautiful view next year. Thank you Pete.

Relaxation 101

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this property so much! For our first big family vacation with a young child, we couldn't have asked for more: the house was stocked with everything for a comfortable stay inside or on the beach. The home's supply of beach gear is awesome- we wanted for nothing! We also highly recommend the outdoor shower! The home is close to restaurants, entertainment (the local putt-putt course were fun), and of course the beach is just steps away!

This is a 5-star property because of the location, amenities, and the price! Plus, Pete and Kristy are great communicators and very accommodating! Thanks, guys.

Additional pricing information

Tax Rate 12.5%

Summer "Weekday" Rentals are from 6pm on Sunday through 2pm on Friday. That's five nights for the discounted rate of $550 (that's less expensive than a hotel).

Note that it's absolutely FREE to pay with an eCheck, but VRBO will charge a 2.9% "Convenience Fee" if you pay with a credit card (and then again when they refund your Security Deposit!). That's a charge I'll have to pass-on to you. You're MUCH better off paying with a check!

In case you're not convinced, if you pay your $500 Security Deposit with a credit card, you will only get back $471.43 even if I refund the deposit in full. I encourage all of our renters to save themselves the money as this is an unnecessary expense. No need to make the banks any richer :-)
