About Kathleen Doherty
We moved to Florida from NY in 1999 and live right next door to Dolly's House. We were sailors for over 15 years and we also love motorcycle riding through the hills of Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina. We love to travel and have used VRBO extensively. We spent 3 months in France in 2015, staying in houses and apartments that we found on VRBO. In 2017 we spent 2 month in Italy, touring Tuscany and Rome. 2019 will take us to England and Scotland for 2 months.
Kathleen Doherty purchased this House in 2015
Why Kathleen Doherty chose Edgewater
This was my parents' house and when my mother, Dolly, passed away in 2014, I bought the property. Since I have been so pleased with my own experience with VRBO as a traveler, I decided to put Dolly's House on their website. I'm pleased with how quickly I booked my first guests. I've tried very hard to have everything at Dolly's House that I would like when I am the renter.
What makes this House unique
There are many houses with pools but very few houses in this area have heated pools. Even though this is Florida, you usually can't swim in a pool comfortably in the winter months. The house is wheelchair accessible, with ramps to access both entrances. There are no steps to struggle with going out to the porch and the master bath has a roll in shower with a drop down seat and hand held shower head. The only area not easy to access is the actual pool, as the pool deck is too small to safely accommodate a wheelchair.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Yes, it was winter for some of our stay at this cozy home. But, it certainly wasn’t the northeastern US version that we are used to! Sunny and warm days were the norm!
Dolly’s House is just perfect. The kitchen is very well equipped, which delighted my husband. The private screened porch and heated pool were my happy places!
Kathleen is a fabulous host and a wealth of information about the area. We found a family-owned butcher shop on her recommendation and made several trips there.
We bicycled to the NSB farm market and walked to the movies. Of course, the beach is beautiful and can be accessed and enjoyed easily.
Will we be back? Of course!
Dolly's place is as cute and cozy as last time.
Kathleen is a wonderful hostess. Always fixes anything needed promptly when asked.Always attentive to taking care of details.. We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed our chats with her and her husband. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We will be back
Thank you, Jeff and Christine, not just for the kind review but also for liking Dolly’s House so much that you came back for a second stay. It was a pleasure meeting Thom and Peggy as well. Hope we see you again, Kathleen and John.
Well maintained hidden gem!
We loved our week at Dolly's House! It truly is a hidden gem. Located off a main road in a quiet neighborhood, it's a good home base for lots of different things - New Smyrna/Daytona Beach, the Space Coast region, and Orlando. The house itself is very clean and well maintained and had pretty much anything you could think of. Two bathrooms, two bedrooms, and a heated pool off an adorable screened in porch lit with colored lights. The bedsheets were really comfortable, which is not something I would normally notice. Kathleen lives right next store and was very responsive to any questions we had. All in all, the next time we stay in the area, Dolly's House will be at the top of our list.
Bill and Stephanie, it was a treat to host you both. Thank you for taking such good care of the house and fixing the toilet! You are welcome back any time.
Cozy and welcoming
Our third visit to Dolly's House was like coming home. A welcome respite after a long distance move as we waited for furniture. Thank you once again Kathleen for creating a perfect haven for weary travelers.
Welcome to the neighborhood. Happy to have you full time.
What a beautiful home! It was so incredibly comfortable, it literally didn’t feel like it was a rental, it felt like home. Such a beautiful neighborhood with a fantastic walking path. The pool was perfection and I wished I used it more. Kathleen had all the amenities you could ever need. I cannot wait to stay here again!
I’m so glad you enjoyed yourselves at Dolly’s House. Please come again.
Amazing Place - Relax In A Private Pool - Grill and Chill
We had the most restful, relaxing week and it was exactly what we needed. Everything was ready for us and we were welcomed with muffins, homemade ice cream and of course a cold one ready to hit that amazing screen area for a drink to start our relaxing vacation.
Would recommend this place to anyone, it has everything you need and so convenient to walk to the water and a short drive to the coast. Shops and eateries on Canal Street was an added treat and very close. We will keep this on our short list of places to get away.
Thank you for making our stay so comfortable. We will be back, Grant and Cindy
Thank you so much for the great review. And thank you for taking such good care of Dolly’s House, taking in the cushions and rolling up the awning when it rained. My cleaner Lisa always comments on how nice and clean all my guests leave the house. Come back any time, Kathleen
