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 Ormond-by-the-Sea

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!!!!

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to live and work temporarily on short notice. This was a fantastic option to a hotel. The home was immaculate and comfortably appointed. There was plenty of room for both of us to spread out and do our work. We also enjoyed being able to use the kitchen and grill to avoid eating out all the time. Having a washer and dryer was a plus. The internet speed was also a plus. I would stay here again for sure.

Wonderful bright and cheerful house with great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week just to get away. The house is nothing special to look at from the outside but the inside is wonderful. First of all it was super clean. It is decorated in beach motif and is light and airy and not cluttered like some rentals we have stayed at. The linens and towels were top rate. The king bed was firm, just like we like it. There is plenty of closet space in the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a small bathroom attached with a great shower. My only comment here is that there is no storage for personal things in this bathroom. A couple of shelves would have been helpful. I ended up using the shower step to put my things like toothbrush, make up, etc. The hall bathroom was great with lots of storage space. The bathrooms are retro looking which we like. The kitchen was fine and had everything we needed. We would have liked a blender so we could have made yummy iced drinks in the afternoon to sip on while sitting on the patio. But other than that we were totally satisfied with the kitchen. The washer and dryer is full size and came in handy. We loved the patio area with very comfy chairs and a large umbrella for shade. The pier on the intercoastal was only a couple minutes walk and we went there frequently to fish and/or watch the sunsets. The walk to the ocean was much more than 4 minutes for us but perhaps younger persons could do it in 4 minutes. All in all we loved this little house and hope to return someday.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time and thank you for your kind words. We listened to your suggestions and added additional shelving to the master bathroom and a blender to our kitchen ; next time you will be able to make those yummy iced drinks and sip them while sitting on the patio.
