About E. K. Emery
We are a family of four that live and work in Central Florida. My husband is a Florida native born in Deland. I moved to Florida in 1982 when I moved from Northern Virginia to attend the University Of Florida. My husband and I met at the University of Florida and have made the Orlando area our home for the past 31 years.
E. K. Emery purchased this Condo in 2003
Why E. K. Emery chose Ormond-by-the-Sea
We have been enjoying the beaches of Volusia County since long before we were married. We chose this property for the beautiful clean beach as well as convenience to the race track in Daytona.
What makes this Condo unique
The beach is clean and quiet. The condo is far enough away from the crowds that it feels like your own private beach, but at the same time is only minutes away from world class dining and shopping.
Minimum age of primary renter:25

Amazing! Perfect! Beautiful! All the good things you can think of to say!
We just got home from a Saturday to Saturday visit and I cannot say enough good things about the condo, the owners and even the area. Where to start?
This condo has literally EVERYTHING you need to feel at home in the condo and on the beach. I'm a packer so we brought a lot of our own stuff, especially since you never know what a rental might have, but I was blown away but the stock level on bath and beach towels, beach gear etc. We cooked several meals and never struggled to find a dish or utensil needed. The beds were also super comfy and I slept very well every night. The kitchen is beautifully upgraded and I actually found myself taking down ideas for my own kitchen remodel coming up later this year (wow those countertops and how cool are those cabinets?!). Tv and dvd players were in every room, along with books and a few dvds. We watched a few of the provided dvds (and my son watched the cable some too) plus we rented some redbox movies and everything was just great.
As for the beach itself, what a great surprise that was! One reason we chose this property was the view for the incredible price tag, so the proximity to the beach was an awesome surprise. I assumed the pictures were from special angles, but no, the beach is RIGHT there. Even walking across the street, the beach was a closer, easier walk than many large beachfront complexes I have rented from. My husband has a bad ankle and this easy walk was no issue for him at all. Crossing the road is no big deal either, its straight and flat so its easy to see traffic for minutes before it even gets to you, so no issues crossing. Then, the beach itself is basically a private beach! We saw a no more than 3 or 4 families using it with us all week. Perfect! There were also 4 sea turtle nests along the beach! Hopefully future guests will see the miracle of them hatching :)
I was in contact with the owner several times for different questions before and after arrival. Contact was simple and easy, always a quick reply. I can't recommend this family and their condo enough!
As for the area, lots of great local restaurants! For a nice dinner out, I recommend Stonewood Grill and Tavern. Also, Absolutely Cheezee was a fantastic lunch one day . I thought grilled cheese, but they take it to a whole new level. Its also a very small family owned business with incredible customer service.
Can't wait to come back to Ormond-by-the-Sea one day!
A Perfect Holiday By The Sea
Our Holiday week in December at this beautiful condo unit was welcoming, warm and the perfect escape from the cold winter of the north.
After a long and tiring road trip south, we were greeted by the great hospitality of this charming home. Everything we could think of was provided for us (there were even Holiday decorations for us, as it was Christmas week).
This unit was very clean, comfortable, updated and safe. We enjoyed very much the beautiful and modern kitchen and all the utensils, gadgets and conveniences necessary for a week of pure Florida heaven!
The condo was very quiet and the residents we did encounter were very welcoming and friendly.
We do love this area as it is the more quiet section of beach and yet the conveniences of grocery, gas and shopping are nearby.
Our week long visit included; beautiful sunrises, peaceful walks along the beach, the most delicious food from local restaurants (Stavros IV, and Hull's -our favorites), a visit to Ponce de Leon Inlet, a fun-filled day at a Walt Disney World park -the list goes on, but at the end of every day, the best time was returning to this wonderful condo unit.
Thank you for having us, entertaining us and as we're back north in the bleak mid-winter, we're dreaming of our next visit.
Cheers to you!
The condo was just the right size for our family of four. Not enough sitting area in living room.
The location is perfect for where we like to eat, shop, and sun bathe!! You are minutes from Flagler and Ormond. This space has all amenities we needed this week, washer/dryer and hair dryers!! The pool was a plus- steps from condo. Private access to beach across street from condo. I would stay here again!!
Just what we needed!
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo! It had everything we needed! Just like home away from home! It was in a quiet community with just a short walk across the street to access the beach. We were able to sit on the balcony and watch the boats pass by, pelicans on the water and even had a few dolphin sightings. Close to local restaurants and the Daytona area. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay! If in the area again we would love to be able to stay in the condo again!
Nice Quiet Location
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. Liked location away from the hustle & bustle. Easy beach access with more privacy than more south, great view of ocean, close to grocery store. Peaceful place. We had everything we needed. Great communications with owner also. We recommend this place & would enjoy renting again.
