About Michael Oshaughnessy
I found this house while searching for the perfect beach 25 years ago with my girlfriend who now is my wife ( Leslie) 'Ebb Tide' was built in 1967 by a very wealthy lady from Chattanooga who just wanted peace and quiet and escape from her life- It's our home now, we occasional spend a lot of time traveling and away so now after 26 years of ownership we are opening it up just a little. We have two small children ( 14 &15 ), we're surfers so all our surfing / paddling lives are imprinted all over the house. It's a very romantic house and as the former owner told me when I purchased it - it comes alive after midnight!@! It's a cool house one of kind. https://www.facebook.com/Ebb-Tide-Ponce-Inlet-Beach-House-300832130465850/about/
Michael Oshaughnessy purchased this House in 1990
Why Michael Oshaughnessy chose Ponce Inlet
Ponce Inlet is Florida best kept secret even if its started to be developed in the late 90's. There's a reason racing was started here, the beaches are very very wide and non driving. Ponce Inlet is a sweet little town, last one leaving New Symrna Beach please turn off the lights- we are a no drive beach, meaning no cars and pure relaxation Seriously Once you go to Ponce Inlet you'l be back- ' where the ocean meets the river' sweet little town, theres a cool old light house, a turtle hospital, neat inlet you can walk out on, no drive beachs, great surf . Stop off at my ice cream shop Ho daddy O's or attend my surf and sport camp during the summer months. One of the east coasts best surf is right down at the inlet- out back isn't too bad either , especially on south swell!
What makes this House unique
quiet, quiet, quiet , surf , surf , surf, sleep , sleep , sleep there's stuff to do around town but who wants to leave?? Light House is always fun, Turtle Hospital at Inlet is cool, walking the Inlet is always our fav- sun sets on river w/a fish sandwich and beer can't be beat- Must stop and see Ho Daddy O's SURF CREAM!!! that's my shop. Walk to Ponce Preserve from my house, very very cool! This is a perfect old style Florida beach house and experience. The sport of paddle boarding started right out in back of my house in the mid 90's- look it up in Wikipedia -

This property is absolutely a perfect location and had everything we needed for a wonderful family vacation. The beach was BEAUTIFUL! Owner was accommodating to our extremely early arrival. Couldn’t ask for a better beach getaway! Boogie boards, surf boards, beach chairs, cooler, easy-up and sunscreen all provided. Beautiful views from the deck and really enjoyed dinners at the picnic table listening to the waves. Close enough to enjoy the crowds at Daytona but far enough away to have peace and quiet. The house Is in need a deep cleaning and wasn’t really prepared for explicit pictures on the walls. Other than that, we had a blast and did not want to leave. Could easily spend a month here! Owner was quick to respond to any questions or needs we had and we greatly appreciate him letting us stay in their family’s beach house! Thanks Mike!
Yup - this user caught us with our long time house cleaner on vacation and you know what - its not a new house ! its not a HIlton , its a 1967 A Frame , this cusmter wanted to know what the bugs were doing on the beach - its the beach , there are No seeums at nite during the summer - i suggest Disney for your next trip- cause it wont be Ebb Tide !
A relaxing home away from home
We could not have been happier with our choice to stay at Ebb Tide. Michael was such a gracious and accommodating host. The location was perfect. The home was so comfortable. The views were spectacular and the uncrowded beach was steps away from the back deck. We will definitely return.
Thank you for sharing your home Michael.
Very unique place on the beach. I had a blast.
A Florida Beach House with Character!
Michael is a great host sharing his museum like home. Not the slick modern house (no dishwasher or garbage disposal) but a true beach house that sticks to the purpose of a vacation. Get away from it all with this fun house. Easy to get to Daytona if that is what you want. Close to the lighthouse when you want a break from the beach. And just steps to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend this house to anyone who enjoys an old time beach vacation.
Charming! Romantic! Escape to this perfect little palace!
Thank you so very much Michael for renting us this perfect little palace on the beach! Ocean front doesn't get any better! My husband and I had a great time! We sat on the porch all day and watched the ocean and woke each day to see the sunrise. We loved the surf décor! Great location! We would love to return one day!
I almost gave up on finding a vacation spot this year when I happened upon Ebb Tide. I am so grateful that I didn't give up. The pictures online don't do it justice. It is the perfect spot to get away and relax. The surfing memorabilia was fascinating to look at and we enjoyed reading the news stories of Michaels adventures. I can't think of anything that was missing to make our stay more comfortable. Not to mention the view! To wake up and watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the deck was a bonus. Later in the day we strolled the beach and did some fishing. We can't thank you enough, Michael for sharing your home with us. If we find ourselves in your area again we will definitely check your availability. Rosemary and Roger.
