“Perfect Honeymoon”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This was an incredible place to stay. I haven't been to Florida in nearly a decade, but the location was perfect-close to the beach with a private walkway there as well as close to the grocery store and places to eat. The cottage itself was clean and beautiful, with plenty of room for the two of us (with room to spare if you are bringing more guests!) Sandi was very helpful with suggestions of places to go and things to do and we will definitely be back next time we visit Florida!

I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. You are the second couple to spend their honeymoon in our cottage. It is a very romantic hideaway on the beach. I hope you will consider staying again on your anniversary. Thank you for the nice review.

Thank you for the nice and helpful review. I'm so happy that you and your family were able to enjoy the beach and the water easily. Having the cottage just steps from the beach really does help. We look forward to your return someday.

“Great time had by all”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We rented this cottage for our extended family for the weekend. We couldn't get the kids off the beach! Great to have the beach basics, there, chairs, umbrella, beach towels. Made it so easy to have a good time. Breakfast on the screen porch was my mother in law's favorite time. She could see the beach from the porch.
Great food/shopping near by. Thanks so much!

“Family Fun at a cute beach cottage”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful time at the Mako Beach Cottage. Beach views from the porch, living room, master bedroom and back yard. We used the grill every day and the kitchen was great for preparing meals. Loved the games in the living room especially since we were traveling with a 5 year old and a teenager. Thank you Sandi for a great weekend at the beach.

“Lovely Cottage at Ormond-by-the-Sea”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for a long week end in Mako Cottage in April, and couldn‘t have been happier with the arrangements. The cottage is nicely furnished with beach décor and is very clean and well equipped, with a full kitchen including large refrigerator and a dishwasher. I have written about the cottage before, and how convenient it is to the ocean, being just a few steps away from a short boardwalk to the beach (which we have never found to be crowded in this area).
Just a few minutes drive north is a shopping area with a large Publix. And, we just discovered that south on A1A at the shopping center just north of Granada Boulevard is a wonderful Hershey’s Ice Cream parlor! We recommend Billy’s Tap Room and Grill for great steaks and seafood (also on Granada Blvd.). They have a separate menu for grouper dishes, their specialty.
The owner of the cottage, Sandi, is very helpful and accommodating. Mako Cottage is always our first choice when we travel to Ormond. The location is good for activities in Ormond or in Daytona Beach. Highly recommended.

Your beach cottage was more than we hoped for. We had a very comfortable, quiet and relaxing vacation. The cottage was well equipped and furnished. We especially loved the cottage atmosphere right on the beach. There is no comparison to the high rise condos which are so prevalent now. We felt more like family than guests. Thank you Sandi. Hope to be back next year.
