About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

9 houses from a no-drive beach and a short walk to the Intracoastal waterway. This lovely 2-bed, 2-bath home is where you can relax and get away from it all but be close enough to nightlife or activities only a short drive away. Located in a peaceful and quiet area between Ormond and Flagler Beach the area is the best kept secret of vacationers. No condo's and little traffic makes you think you hit the vacation lottery. Share a glass of wine in the evening on the patio while listening to the sound of the surf. Let the tensions disappear as you relax in your beach chair or take long walks along the great Atlantic Ocean.

The home includes a washer and dryer, two adult bicycles, boogie boards, beach chairs and a cooler. All linens are included and the kitchen has all the necessities needed including a toaster, coffee maker and microwave. An ironing board and iron are also available. 47" Flat-screen HDTV with extended channels, a Roku with Netflix is included along with high-speed broadband and a dual-band gigabit wireless router to connect to the outside world. The main entry door lock is key-less so you don't have to carry around keys, and we will provide you with an easy to remember code. We've tried to think of everything to make your stay enjoyable.

About Chuck & Gay Dearbeck

We live by the ocean in Ormond Beach. Living here is like being on vacation every day. Uncrowded beaches, ocean breezes and very little traffic. I'm self-employed as a database/web developer. Gay works as the director of an assisted living community. We don't travel a whole lot because of our work schedules (plus look where we live). A couple years ago we walked part of the Camino de Santiago in Spain and loved our stay in Spain and Portugal. We hope to go back in the future.

Chuck & Gay Dearbeck purchased this house in 2013

Why Chuck & Gay Dearbeck chose Ormond Beach

After living beach-side in Daytona Beach and liking it we decided to look for a more peaceful location. Ormond-by-the-sea is that spot. A friend of mine says it's Florida's best kept secret.

What makes this house unique

What attracted us the most (other than the home) was the location, only 9 houses from the drive-free beach and the quiet neighborhood. When you sit on the back patio you can hear the ocean and since there isn't the lighting pollution of the city, the stars shine brightly in the night sky.

Great Location !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on 05/06/2017 at your beautiful home. While we were anticipating a beautiful “rental property”,the Dolphin house is clearly a home and it felt like that the minute we arrived. From the décor to the layout to the furnishings to the smallest of touches (the basket of goodies). They had his and her bikes, beach chairs, zero gravity chairs, wagon, beach umbrella and more.

Chuck came and met us after we had the car unloaded and showed my husband how to work the cable service which had Hulu and Netflix.

We really enjoyed the zero gravity chairs which we used in the back yard to talk and watch the squirrels, and doves. We were able to relax on the patio in the chairs and sipping on the wine which was in the basket of goodies, and spending time together. It's time we always cherish when on vacation and our week at the Dolphin house will definitely be a treasured memory.

The house was a short drive to restaurants (The Hull's- Betties A1A just to mention a couple) and the beach was a very short walk from the house for we really enjoyed the walks on the beach, talking to fishermen learning what fish they had caught and discovering shells.

I do have one negative comment: The days just weren’t long enough, and our time at the Dolphin house was too short!! This past week truly is a memory we will forever treasure and we thank you so much for the opportunity.

Loved our stay at the Dolphin House.

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin House was the perfect little house for our vacation. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the welcome basket was such a sweet and unexpected gesture. Chuck was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us everything we would need to know about the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again next year. Thanks for everything.....Sue, Joe and Steph.

Cute Florida cottage and sooo close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The location is really awesome if the beach is your desire. The house is just a minutes walk to a stretch of beach that is almost deserted so you really have it to your self. It is a short drive to restaurants and shopping but we loved the vibe of Flagler Beach so it was well worth it to go there. The house was perfect for us and had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable and well suited for four people. The WiFi was top rate and we were able to handle our business with no problem and the great cable service was complemented by HULU and NETFLIX for entertainment. The owners were helpful and greeted us upon arrival and showed us where everything was and then left us to enjoy our privacy; simply they were ideal hosts. The owners description of there property is spot on and you can rely on it when making a decision to stay at their home. Thanks for a great stay!

Overall, our experience was extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

The rental is amazing clean and included so many extras that I did not expect! There are two bikes, zero gravity chairs, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach cart and more! The rental is a short walk to the beach and a short walk to a park with a beautiful view! The owner Chuck was very flexible and was easy to communicate with. The owners truly exceeded our expectations and sincerely want to provide the best experience for their guests! I would highly recommend this rental and would not hesitate to stay here again! Thank you!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Chuck was very helpful, and was always there if you needed him. Would recommend to friends. The property was about a 3 minute walk to beach, and about 7 minutes to the closest grocery store. The property has everything you need to have a great vacation. Would love to come back!
