Thanks so much for such a comfortable and convenient vacation spot. The weather was “hot” but great so we enjoyed the pool and the ocean. We relaxed at night and watched movies, but during the day we spent time shopping on Flagler Avenue. Don’t let your guests miss walking up and down Flagler Avenue; we met so many nice shop owners. “Sue Who” -is a great shop. We went up to Daytona and took a ride on the Daytona 500 Speedway. That was a great tour. Also wanted to thank you for the discount cards on the condo keys. We saved a lot of money at the Market and CVS. Thanks again for a wonderful time and see you next year.

, Wow! What a great month. ½ day of rain-the rest 80’-90’s sunny. Beach is in great shape. Rented a kayak at J.B.’s Paddled to Bethune Park Bay. Manatees everywhere. One came to our boat and nudged it 180 degrees & then swam right under us. Dolphins just feet away. Parasailed at 2000’ out of Ponce Inlet by Lighthouse-highy recommend it. Shopped, ate, swam, walked beach & pooled it. The Pavillion Shopping Ctr @ I-95-Port Orange exit is a fun experience. Burgers and beer at Breakers still a must do. We never tire of things to do. Just love it here. Thanks. Your friends,

I waited until the very last minute to write in this book because I have been speechless all week. This is the first timeI have taken my family on a “real” vacation! I have to say I made a wonderful choice! We arrived on Saturday and everything from the immaculate condo to the beautiful beach was perfect. On Saturday we were able to go and see the Nascar Coke 400 at the Daytona Speedway. Absolutely amazing. All of the fireworks on the beach were out of this world. Tuesday we visited the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Thursday we took the girls to Magic Kingdom. The rest of the days in between were spent lounging around at the pool and beach. Thank you, Tom and Pat for opening up your beautiful home for others to enjoy,. This experience was great and we all can’t wait to return again next year.

We have had a fabulous time! Your home by the sea is absolutely beautiful, and a perfect size for a family. We traveled around the area-down to Canaveral & up to Flagler Beach. We had a magnificent meal @ Fisherman’s Net in Flagler and then brought some fresh seafood home. It wasn’t too far a trip into Orlando-we went to SeaWorld & Aquatica. The rest of the days hung out @ the beach-the ocean is wonderful! Rain or shine-it was always warm!! We had a terrific time. Thank you.

Dear Pat & Tom, Yet another year at Sea Woods & this time with grandchildren who loved the beach, the pools & the trails. Friday we got to feel the final launch & watched it on TV(lots of clouds) which was a thrill for us. Thank you for sharing your home away from home. God willing, will see you again soon.

Tom & Pam, Eustis, FL

Another GREAT week come and gone. Got to do some sightseeing & animal watching. Manatees were out and posing for pictures in Titusville. Turtles everywhere. I watched the sunrise from all along the shoreline. That’s my thing. Mornings at the ocean, afternoons by the pool & out for dinner. Norwoods & Flip-Flops are always a pleasure. Lucky, storm Emily stayed away. I am taking my sunrise pics home. The best will be my computer wallpaper. Thanks for everything.

Tom & Pat, Thank you so much for giving our family the opportunity to stay in your “home away from home” this week. Your condo suited our needs in every way. The weather couldn’t have been better-hot, sunny, at times even “steamy”-perfect for spending time at the beach. We rode bikes all along the trails here, as well as on the beach and around the neighborhoods. Woke up early a few mornings to bike to the beach and watch the sun rise over the horizon-truly breathtaking, and a sight we never see while living in the city. Enjoyed the pools(never crowded), the Veranda, the central a/c, the comfy beds and great water pressure. Overall, this was an A plus vacation. We hope to return next year.

What a great place for our family to spend the holiday.  Our first day we went to the speedway at Daytona and took the tour.  Well worth the money.  We found our way to Port Orange where the kids had their first alligator meal,.  We spent every day at the pool or the beach.  We cooked out at the little park on Christmas day.  We love the Canaveral National Seashore.  The beach is incredible.(go all the way to the end)  We also went to Cassadaga, Florida where this Mayor was greeted very warmly.  Our last night John and I went to Garlic's; fabulous Sea Bass.  Hate to leave your wonderful paradise, but Southwest is calling.  Thanks again, LeeAnn, John, Amanda & Thomas.  Cassadaga, NY

We had a great time here at NSB.  Only one day of rain during our holiday.  We will be going back to Ireland and lots of rain.  You condo is perfect and so comfortable.  Kids love the heated pool.  Spent time on the beach which we love.  Drove to the jetty to watch dolphins & fishermen.  A friend of ours brought us on a trek to Merrit Island Nat'l  Refuge.  We saw loads of alligators and my 8 year old son, Sean, was thrilled  Went to Daytona Speedway.  Favorite place to eat was Blackbeards & Aunt Catfish.  Thanks for letting us borrow your home,.  Hope to be back soon.  If you decide to visit Ireland we have a bed for you.

We had a great time at NSB.  Your Home Away from Home was beautiful.  Loved sitting out on your enclosed porch.  Went to beach every day and night.  Everything was so close to your home  We walked along Flagler Avenue, shopped and had lunch at this wonderful deli called Manzono's.  Went to Breakers for a few cold drinks.  All the people were so friendly.  We ate at Bagel World; That's Amore, The Garlic and Norwoods.  Our favorite was "Norwoods."   Weather was great; 1/2 day of rain then sunny everyday.  Thanks so much for letting us stay here.  We hope to come back next year.  I'll be in touch.  Thanks.

This week was great!  No rain - blue skies.  Beach was so open and peaceful.  Did not cook a meal here.  We were out for meals with family.  Started out with lunch at J.B.'s, fun place; Clancy's in town for lunch; also live music at night.  We spent a day in Daytona - sad, not been there in years.  Your home was complete with all needed  items.  Thank you so much for great week.

Dear Tom & Pat,

We are si very pleased to become a part of your extended family.  We are hooked!  This is by far the most comfortable "homey" place we've stayed.  The whole family agrees that this is where we will always spend our vacations.  We enjoyed eathing at Flip/Flops, swimming, walking the trails, tennis, pools, beach, everything.  Our kids quickly took ownership of the both of you as they found all the sweet little touches that make this place a "Home Away from Home."

With love and appreciation,   David & Betsy, Daven, Davey & Dayten, Senoia, GA

Dear Tom & Pat,

Thank you once again for renting your beautiful condo to us for our vacation in NSB.  We had a great time "chill axin" by the pool(s), almost daily trips to the beach and few day/evening trips.  We took the children to Universal Studios(their idea) and to see Cirque de Soliel(my idea); the former was for their enjoyment, the latter was enjoyed by all of us!  We dined at Blackbeards(delish primb rib) and KOBE in Lakewood.  On our last evening here, we took a stroll to the beach to light two Chinese lanterns, which we wrote our names and "NSB 2012" on, and watched them fly over the Atlantic, an awesome way to cap off another stay in my favorite Florida town.  We will be back next year.  With warm regards, Greg, Lori, Eden and Gage, Fall River, MA

How fast time flies here.  Mid to upper 80's and low humidity all month.  Walked the beach every day and spent many a lazy afternoon at the pool.  Every year when we plan our vacation we debate whether we should try somewhere else, and quickly say no way.  We love it here.  The beach, pool, condo, restaurants.  What we love the best here is the "green," so many trees, etc.  But mostly sun, sun, sun -- after our WNY winter it has been luxurious.  Your new dining set and buffet are beautiful.  Had drinks w/ George & Gerry at their place.  They are fun.  So friendly now with the owners here.  Many gab fest late afternoon at the pool.  Thanks for your sharing and generosity. 

John & Beth, Ashville, NY

Thank you again for letting us stay at your beautiful condo.  Your new furniture is beautiful.  Love to eat at Norwoods, NSB Steakhouse and Amores.  Weather was perfect.  Meeting Pat's best friend, AnnMarie was a joy; such a ray of sunshine.  Everyone is so nice and friendly here.

We have a few days left so I thought I should write before I forget.  Today is Memorial Day and the beaches have been packed all wkend.  Around 90 degrees, nice breeze, sunny/hazy, but not too humid.  Actually humidity has been low all month.  Only half day of rain.  Flew daughter and two grandsons down mid-month and took them to Disney on a beautiful Sat., 80 degrees.  Inflatable bed was a life saver for sleeping.  At your suggestion went to Outriggers; on the river, nice breeze, friendly staff and good food.  So, Tom, if anyone takes the time to read this long missive, I can only say once you've tried it here, you are hooked.  Tom and Pat have everything here you need.  We will be back; hope you will too.

Thank you so much for opening your home at the last minute.  This was a much needed vacation and it felt great to be here with my family.  We had no agenda this time.  I truly wanted a "vacation."  Most days we spent right at the beach and then the pool.  Evenings were spent on the Veranda playing card games.  All the updates to the home are beautiful and noticed immediately.  Can't wait to come again.
