Here Are a Couple of Responses from Our Guests:

"this Rental Property Was All That Was Advertised and Then Some. the House Was Recently Re-modeled and Was Immaculate Upon Our Arrival. I Believe We Were the First "long Term" (3 Months) Residents and Found Both the House and the Location to Be Perfect.

we Were Far Enough Off the Beaten Path (atlantic Avenue) But Close Enough to Everything Including the Daytona Speedway and Lots of Shopping. the Setting is Ideal, Half Way Between the Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River. Being Located Between the River and the Ocean Provided a Soothing Atmosphere. What a Pleasure to Hear the Ocean When You Open the Front Door.

on Our Daily Walks We Met a Lot of the Neighbors Who Were Very Welcoming and Helpful As We Explored the Area.

all the Furniture is Well Cared for and Comfortable. the Sleep Number Beds Were a New Experience for Us That We Thoroughly Enjoyed. It Was Like a Home Away from Home for Us.

we Enjoyed Relaxing On the Screened-in Lanai While Cooking On the Brand New Dual-fuel Grille. the Furniture On the Lanai Was New As Well, What a Bonus! the Backyard is Fenced So Our "westie" Enjoyed Relaxing in the Sun.

there Are More Restaurants Than You Could Eat at in 3 Months. We Cooked a Lot and With a Kitchen That Was Fully Equipped With Utensils, It Was Like Being at Home. at One Point We Needed a Hand Mixer But Could Not Locate One in the Kitchen. One Call to Deb, the Owner, and Voila a Mixer Arrived by Ups in Two-days. What Service.

all-in-all It Was a Wonderful Experience, So Much So That We Will Return Next Year and Probably Years to Come."

- Keith and Judy

"my Husband and I Stayed Here With Another Couple for the Week During Biketoberfest. There Was Plenty of Privacy for Each Couple and Awesome Common Areas to Share. the Enclosed Patio Was Great and Private. the Kitchen Had Everything You Could Possible Imagine and Everything Was of Excellent Quality. We Slept Well On the Sleep Number Beds and Are Considering Buying One for Home.

there Was Plenty of Room to Park the Trailer and Truck in the Driveway. We Kept the Motorcycles in the Garage. We Went to the Beach a Few Times, But Did Not Walk Any of Those Times. We Drove to a Public Access Or Parked On the Beach, Which is Easier When You Have a Lot of Stuff to Take With You.

we Went Downtown a Couple Times for the Activities, But Took a Cab, Since Parking is Tough During Biketoberfest. a Cab Ride to Main St Was Only Each Way for 4 People. Quite a Bargain if Everyone Wants to Have Some Drinks.

met a Couple Neighbors Who Were Very Nice. the Neighborhood Was Very Well Kept and We Felt Safe Being There.

we Ate at Ocean Deck, Piranha Grill, Famous Steve's. All Were Great. We Also Ate at Oyster Pub, Which Was Not So Great.

the Owner Was Easy to Work With. We Would Definitely Stay Here Again."

Lovely Mid-Century Modern Home with Great Backyard!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

If you love Mid-Century Modern, you will love the period pieces the owner has collected, especially the pull down bar in the dining area. The house is just as it is pictured in the listing and is very clean. The living room furniture is comfortable, and the TV has a great picture and lots of cable channels, however, just know that the living room TV is the only one in the house. The kitchen has been nicely remodeled with a glass tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, including a refrigerator with an automatic ice maker and water. The kitchen has most everything you need. We loved the tropical back yard and appreciated the fenced in yard that the dog could play in while we sat on the screened in porch. The neighborhood is peacefully quiet, and feels very safe! The shower in the master bedroom has a large shower head and great water pressure. The towels were fluffy white, new and smelled "oh so good!" The owner was easy to work with and quick to respond to questions. If we are ever in the Daytona area again, we would definitely rent this house. We thought the home was a good value for the price, and felt fortunate to be able to share the owner's home!

Super Clean and Charming Cottage!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We rented this carefully refreshed home while in town visiting family. It was the cleanest rental we have rented! The home is circa 1950, and has been remodeled with love. The only thing keeping us from giving it a 5 star rating is that the master bathroom (sink/toilet area) is tiny, and there is only 1 tv in the home. (not so great with teens in tow) The home was wonderfully stocked, with very nice linens, several bicycles, beach chairs, plenty of toiletry items in case you forget your own... The towels, sheets, small appliances, washer/dryer are all top quality. The kitchen was open and well stocked, and the layout was comfortable. There is a large area shown in the photos with a dining table, nice for sitting at with work or a lap top, but still near the family. The garage was a big perk, although we just parked in the driveway. Everything listed in the description was accurate, and we enjoyed the home and the super friendly homeowner. When in this area, we drive north just a bit and park right at the beach, under a watch tower. It is close by, and convenient. I think you could have walked to the beach, but we chose to drive as usual. You can get to the Flagler area or Daytona area very easily. It is a nice, quiet home, the street was not busy, and we felt safe, sound and comfortable. We would definitely rent this home again. I would recommend this home for a group of four or less. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you loved our home! We have chosen to keep things are true to the mid-century style as possible, and while the master toilet room is small, it has all original tile and is just charming. Thankfully, the master shower closet that is next to the toilet room is HUGE and also has period tile - big enough for two! Based on your feedback we have added a second HDTV in the master bedroom. We also have extra-fast wireless internet, as so many people have tablets for movie streaming, etc. Several devices can be used at the same time without download speeds being compromised. Thanks for your review and we would love to have you stay again!
