Cottage was charming. Location was perfect. Sandi was an attentive host, checking in with us, as well as even letting us know when a rocket launch was being held that could be seen from the beach. Stay could not of been nicer at Mako Beach Cottage.
Great time at Ormond Beach loved the cottage great amenities great grandkids loved the beach would stay again
My wife and I and another couple attend Bike Week every couple of years, and typically attend the second half. This year, the other couple's 25-year-old son was coming too, so we looked for a vacation rental. We prefer Ormond Beach, a few minutes away from the noise and congestion of Daytona, and we were excited when we saw the listing for Mako Beach Cottage. It was easy making the reservation through TripAdvisor, and communication with the owner of the property, Sandi, was excellent. We trailered our "bikes" from Atlanta, and arrived early evening. Mako Beach Cottage is located on a small, private road that ends at the beach. The double driveway allowed room for the parked trailer, a mid-size pickup and a small SUV, with space undercover for our 3 motorcycles. The cottage is delightful, and it has been updated and thoughtfully appointed. It has a master bedroom with large bathroom with shower, a second bedroom with 2 twin beds and a bathroom with a tub, and a living room with a futon. There is a screened-in porch with table and chairs for dining al fresco without bugs. The kitchen has an electric range, refrigerator and microwave, and it is stocked with everything except food. The decor is delightful and has a cheerful, Florida beach vibe. There is a shopping center with Publix supermarket across A1A in easy walking distance for stocking up on provisions. The real joy is being able to take 20 paces outside the front door and be on Ormond Beach! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we have nothing but praise for this property and its owner.
This cottage on the beach has everything you could ask for. We spent two months there. The weather was great, it was quiet and the people around you were very friendly. Just to be at the beach and in a beautiful cottage was awesome.
We took our first family vacation to FL in April 2016. This little cottage was absolutely perfect! Our 2 and 4 year olds loved every minute, and being able to walk right to the beach and head back in whenever we wanted was key for nap schedules and / or tantrums. ;) We encountered a bit of not so great weather and Sandi was great at providing alternative ideas to the beach.
You can see the Atlantic from the front porch. Nice clean cottage. Sandi the owner will make you feel welcomed. She is very accommodating
Lovely cottage and spotlessly clean with all the comforts of home. Very nice beachy decor and breathtaking view of beach from front porch. Sandi, owner was available if we needed anything to make our stay an enjoyable experience.
