Overview

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.

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!

Chucks Wonderful Dolphin house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful week at the Dolphin house,Ormond beach.We were searching for a quite location,less crowded and less touristy if you will,as we are very private folks. We took a chance on the Dolphin house and were completely satisfied and happy with the house in every way. Chuck was incredibly helpful ,polite and keeps a well supplied house with everything you could possibly need for your stay.

All week long at the house and never saw more than a handful of folks walking towards the beach,which is only a couple hundred feet away.

The garage was a nice touch as I kept my Harley inside safe and secure.The yard looks more like a Botanical garden as we spent lots of time

out back.The house was immaculate and clean both inside and outside and stocked with kitchen utensils,linens,coolers and even his and hers

bikes for guests.The two baths were very nice as one with tub and one with shower.We travel a lot and would recommend Chucks Dolphin house

over any motel,,,,Period.We left the house as clean as we found it as everyone should do. These folks go the extra mile making your stay Perfect.

They treat you with Respect and should be treated the same..! So take it from us...Next trip to the Atlantic.....Stay at Chucks Dolphin House...

Awesome Owners & House

  • 5 of 5

This house is very nice and it was sparkling clean when we arrived. The linens and towels were clean and the house is very well maintained. The house is very nicely furnished and well decorated. There is also a single car garage. The owners are fantastic-they provided us with a welcome basket and made sure that we knew where everything was located and how to use all of the amenities. They also followed up via email during the week to verify that we had everything we needed. We were provided with high speed internet, cable TV plus multiple channels using a Roku device. They also had for our use, washer & dryer, iron and ironing board, 2 bicycles, sand mats to use under towels, chairs, and boogie boards. The beach is an easy 4 minute walk from the house. My family and I would highly recommend this property and owners. They understand how to treat their guests.
