“We had a great time here at Melissa's home in Palm Coast! I took my children here for a change of scenery and a quick getaway. This was the perfect place. We spent the first day in Orlando and enjoyed the theme parks there. This was a great idea, as the parks had low attendance and short lines. Melissa's home is about 1.50 hours from Orlando. The best airport to fly into, by the way, is Daytona Beach International, which is only 30 minutes away. We settled into Melissa's home for a week. The deck out back was by far the most popular spot. We all enjoyed watching the boaters, kayaks, jet skis, and others roll back and forth on the waterway. The view provides nonstop relaxation and entertainment. Perfect for relaxing, releasing, and rejuvenating. The wi-fi was good, and we were able to connect everywhere in the house, as well as from the deck and work outside. What a delight! And the best part was watching the dolphins swim back and forth along the waterway. During our stay, there were at least 5 dolphin sightings. The house was clean, well-kept, and well-stocked with all the basics. Chris, who lives across the way, was helpful with any questions and proving general guidance. We enjoyed bike riding daily, and trips to the many beaches sprinkled along the coastline. I strongly suggest packing a lunch and spending time at a nearby beach (take your pick). Or eating on the deck is equally nice. We bought starter logs from the Home Depot and enjoyed bonfires and s'mores on the beach. The scenery here is perfect for forgetting about your regular life for a while. The grocery store is within walking distance and the beach is a quick bike ride away. We rented a car from the DAB airport, which was very convenient. Melissa was a great host - very helpful and responsive. We really loved it here, and it felt like home. We would love to come again. :-) ”
Melissa's reviewsAs a host (7)
“The house was well communicated with the beach. Shannon and Chris were very polite and wonderful hosts. There were bikes and beach accessories like chairs and umbrellas in the garage that we used. We enjoyed a lot the doc. There weren´t any TV channels and the quality of the wifi was bad and worked sometimes, the perfect place to disconnect from the outside world and relax. The pictures show the house more modern and new from what it actually is. We had a great vacation. ”
“Great family vacation. Made great memories. It was a fantastic experience! ”
“It was my wife and mine’s first trip to the area and had a wonderful time! The weather was not good, but we enjoyed the fire place and the vegetable garden!”
“Fantastic for a quiet vacation in Florida. If you're looking for action it's the wrong place for you. If your idea of heaven is peace and tranquility, breakfast and lunch on the jetty on the lake, waving to the boats going by, yet not too far away by car from the likes of St Augustine and nearby beaches, in a large, detached property with a well equipped kitchen, then this is the one. It can be a bit tricky to find on first arrival if arriving in the dark and you're expecting a big road with a large signpost - it's not on a big estate of houses! Once you know where you're going it's easy. Publix just around the corner is a real boon too. If you like barbecue you must go to Bing's landing just up the road. I had take out and went back a couple of days later to do it again. Melissa was very nice.”
“Great location and great views. Sadly the recent hurricane did some damage to the gardens and dock. We felt very happy during stay.”
“Amazing place ! Lovely host! " La tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté, luxe, calme et volupté". C. Baudelaire Unforgettable! ”
