About Terry Pennington

Our parents discovered Ormond by the Sea over 30 years ago. Our family fell in love with the area and have been vacationing here ever since. We enjoy the great weather and outdoor living that we can we do here. We are now fortunate to own a place of our own here and glad that we can share our special place with you.

Terry Pennington purchased this house in 2015

Why Terry Pennington chose Ocean Breeze Estates

Ormond By the Sea offers a first-class resort experience without sacrificing its small-town grace. Our home is located in a quite and safe neighborhood. We love the fact that the intercostal waterways and the beach are within close walking distance. This area provides visitors with comfortable relaxation and also allows easy access to busier nearby destinations such as next-door neighbors Daytona Beach and Flagler Beach. Just 45 minutes away from Saint Augustine and 90 minutes from Disney. It is bordered by the Tomoka River on the west, the Atlantic Ocean on the east, and home to numerous rivers, lakes and springs, Ormond By the Sea is an ideal location for a myriad of water activities. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of cultural and recreational events offered throughout the year – and the pleasures of its historic downtown Main Street

Our Home Away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a spare of the moment decision to escape the cold, raining weather of Maryland for our Anniversary /vacation and headed to the Daytona Beach area of Florida. We searched on Home Away because we wanted to take our 2 little Jack Russell Terriers with us and needed a home with a fenced in backyard, plus a king size bed because my Hubby is 6'4"! We came across this home in Ormond by the sea which is the perfect spot in between Daytona Beach, Flagler Beach, St Augustine and New Smyrna Beach. I'm very picky about beach rentals, noticed the pictures of this home and fell in love. We drove 15 hours from Maryland with our Jack Russells and was greeted by the owner Terry whom I knew right away that I liked her because she gave me a big hug! She left us a bottle of wine and a huge chocolate bar for our Anniversary which was a big surprise! My Hubby and I walked through the home, did our quick inspection and was super happy about the home...It was beautifully decorated, cozy, comfortable and even had big fluffy towels, wash cloths, bar soaps ready for us! We needed showers after a 15 hour trip!!! Our Jack Russells had a blast in the huge backyard! They had fun chasing the lizards! We enjoyed the Gas outdoor Grill for cooking, the 2 bicycles (I hadn't been on a bike in years), the beach chairs, boogie board, cooler, beach bag, everything you need for the beach! We had the time of our life! There was outdoor furniture for lounging, a fire pit area and even a kiddie pool which we filled for our Jacks, that was so much fun! We walked around exploring and a couple steps to the river where the most beautiful sunsets you can see! We had the best vacation ever!!! We're so happy we chose this beach home, Casa Bonita is the perfect name! Thank you to the owners, we'll definitely be back to visit! We loved the home and area so much that we want retire there asap!!!!

We have stayed in this area before and like it because it was quiet and convenient. Great for road biking and walking. Worked really well for dogs also.

Perfect house close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and we absolutely loved staying at this house, near great restaurants and great shopping stores (Tanger Outlets.. deals, deals, deals) the neighbors are friendly and the beach is 4 minute walk away. Super clean house and had everything we needed. Terry stopped by to say hello and to welcome us and was absolutely wonderful. We will for sure come back to this house in summer. The freshest seafood around, fun shops and best of all great memories for our family.

Lovely retro home located on a quiet street just a few minutes walk to beach or Halifax River.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Casa Bonita very much! Cute home with everything you need. Plenty of room for a family of four to spread out, enjoy movies and just lounge around.

The beaches are spectacular and quiet. No large crowds to hurdle around and no driving on the beach. Most of our days were spent on the beach and dinners were from Ormond to Flagler at great ocean view/side restaurants. So many to choose from but our highlights were Betty's A1A and crab legs at Riptides.

We did a day trip shopping to Beach Street (one of our favorites is Moxie Vintage) in Daytona and an early evening trip to St. Augustine to walk the streets shopping, enjoying live music and food galore!

We would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a quiet family vacation. We have two teenage daughters and they loved the home as much as we did.

Only thing I can think to recommend to bring would be a cart to pull your beach supplies. The owners had chairs and wave boards, etc. but we did bring our own beach gear from home.

Looking forward to visiting again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Quaint Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very quiet street even though there are homes close by. Neighbors waved and were friendly. Felt very safe. Very nice landscaping in the front and back yard. Home seems to be excellently maintained. Very clean and neat. Did not time our walk to the beach but was not a bad walk. Unfortunately we did not get to meet the owners but they did check on us several times. Highly recommend staying here and we would definitely go back if we are able.

From the moment we walked inside we felt like we were home. Everything was exactly as pictured on Home Away with the exception of some up dated furniture which made it even better. Terry did an excellent job of decorating and making you feel welcome when you enter. Could not have asked for better location. The pier at the Halifax was only two doors down and one of our favorite places to enjoy sitting and watching the boats pass and to enjoy the sunset. We also enjoyed being so close to the beach so we could enjoy sunrises and sunsets. The location of the house is convenient to everything you might need. We were guests for 2 1/2 months and would recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable cozy house. Terry and Dean were wonderful to deal with although we had no issues that needed to be addressed. Looking forward to coming back.
