This colorful cottage is on a quiet, private cul-de-sac on the East Side of A1A, so there are no streets to cross to get to the beach. The private dock is steps from your front porch. Mako Beach Cottage has all the comforts of home, just steps from the private dock access to the beach. The cute, brightly-colored cottage is completely furnished with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Our Beach Cottage Amenities include use of: Private Beach Access Dock Beach Chairs, Toys & Umbrella Screened Porch Free Cable and WiFi Linens, dishes, TV, etc. Iron & Ironing Board Washer & Dryer and much, much more..... Ormond-by-the-Sea is located just north of World Famous Daytona Beach, northeast of Orlando and south of historic St. Augustine. While Daytona is the home of the famous Daytona International Speedway and the drive-on beaches, there are so many other fun things to do in our area. There are water parks, an adventure zip-line course, golf courses, museums, movie theaters, and unlimited opportunities for fun in this tourist generated hot spot. Head West on I-4 to go to the Orlando theme parks for a day if you wish to enjoy the excitement of Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and others. But come home to the cottage in the evening and wake up with the quiet solitude of the beach outside. For a quieter time, head north to the quaint town of Flagler Beach and then go on to Marineland. Marineland of Florida, one of Florida's first marine mammal parks, is billed as 'the world's first oceanarium'. Marineland functions as an entertainment and swim-with-the-dolphins facility. Restaurants, shopping and groceries are all located within walking distance from the cottage but seem miles away from the quiet cul-de-sac on the ocean.

About the neighborhood
Welcome to the Fun Coast Ormond-by-the-Sea is located just north of World Famous Daytona Beach, northeast of Orlando and south of historic St. Augustine. While Daytona is the home of the famous Daytona International Speedway and the drive-on beaches, there are so many other fun things to do in our area. There are water parks, an adventure zip-line course, golf courses, museums, movie theaters, and unlimited opportunities for fun in this tourist generated hot spot. Orlando theme parks are only 70 miles away, so you can plan a day at Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios or anywhere else in Orlando and still wake up on the beach in the morning. For a quieter time, head north to the quaint town of Flagler Beach and then go on to Marineland. Marineland of Florida, one of Florida's fi...
