The third floor condo is absoultely beautiful. The pictures do not do the interior justice. The condo is tastefully decorated to promote a very soothing and relaxing experience. The condo location is ideal for visiting the Daytona International Speedway. If you like to walk, Ocean Walk which houses several resturaunts and a cinema, is really not that far away. The third floor provides wonderful views of the ocean and beach from every room. The beach in front of the condo was never heavily populated as we noticed some areas along the beach were. The gym facilities were great. Also, we had covered parking with this unit which was a huge plus. Very close to Publix and several great attractions. The building was very well maintained in side and out. They were painting the facade while we were there but it was not a big deal. The crew was discreet as possible. The exterior was really shaping up to look very attractive. Very secure facility. Easy in and out. If ever in Daytona, I would certainly visit again. The condo was a wonderful part of our vacation.

I must say, I studied everyone's reviews before booking this condo -- I mean the pictures are very nice and welcoming but you never know - right! I can now confirm that all the wonderful good things said about this place are absolutely true. It is a very nice, clean, safe, modern condo unit with owner pride reflected throughout. It was truly a home away from home and the beds were equally comfy!! The balcony was my favorite spot!! Gena was very accommodating and greeted us on the day of our arrival. She explained the trolley system and where to find the closest grocery store etc. It is important to mention that all the beach toys and chairs are stored by the parking space in the basement - We made that wonderful discovery once we arrived with our rental car the third day into our stay. Driving to Orlando and Disney was no problem, actually pretty straight forward. For us, the location of the condo was great... We loved that the beach wasn't too busy and enjoyed our after dinner beach walks (1.5 miles) to the hub of Daytona's main street pier (shops and restaurants) -- Cold Stone Ice Cream Shop being our favorite desert place!! We celebrated my birthday at Joe's Crab Shack -- It was a great night!! Zoom Air Zipline Adventures Daytona was another fun place to go to test your acrobatics abilities - challenging for the whole family!! Our only glitch and it was quickly looked after had to do with our deposit cheque not arriving in the mail upon our return home to Canada. I must commend the Owners and the Rental Management Team for resolving the situation promptly and in a very professional manner - the word "Trustworthy" comes to mind. I recommend you stay at this condo and deal with Darren, Vivianna, Gena and her team. Two thumbs up !!

Wonderful vacation condo
Wonderful vacation condo
We had our family vacation here and it was amazing. Aside from a few minor things the condo was cleaned well and furnished with everything that we needed and expected. The decor throughout the unit was very nice as well. There was some external construction to the building but that did not affect our stay in any way. I believe that most of the units are for full-time residents, not vacationers, which made it a very quiet building which was a huge plus. The last thing you want to deal with after a long drive from MN is noisy neighbors, etc, all week when we were planning on relaxing and resting. Knowing this, we will definitely keep this place in mind for a potential future visit! We were checked in by Gena at the management company. She was very nice but I would have liked her to spend a few more minutes and take her time in going over some things with us. (how to properly use the underground garage door opener (a little quirky), speak about some local things to do, places to eat, how to get to certain places of interest, etc, etc, to help us along). She did explain some things but seemed to be in a bit of a hurry to leave. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice. We met Darren, the owner, one day when he stopped by to drop off some items for the condo and he was great. Very friendly, offering to get things for us if we needed, listened to some concerns of ours, asked us our opinions of how things looked of the items he bought, etc. He is trustworthy and really wanted our stay to be the best it could be and would do what he could to make it happen. It was greatly appreciated. Thank you! After reading some reviews and talking to a few folks including Darren, we decided to eat Lulu's (wonderful food..although a little tricky to find..for us, anyways), Inlet Harbor, and Preston's Eatery. Each place was unique and well worth it. Overall we would definitely recommend this place. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We will definitely consider this for a future vacation.

We truly enjoyed staying in this condo! It was our first condo experience and definetly not our last especially here! Daytona is our favorite place and weather was wonderful! The layout in the condo was perfect and very very spacious. The balcony was very big and was easily accesible to anyone staying in each room! One thing these owners fail to tell you is they have lots of beach chairs and play toys for the kids on the beach! A wonderful surprise to say the least!

Manager response: Can't thank you enough for the kind words.. It was our pleasure having you stay at our condo and hope you will be back soon to stay with us the next time you decide to visit Daytona Beach.. Thanks again and take care.
First off I would like to thank the owners and property management staff. We had a couple requests before checking in and they went out of their way to accomodate us. It was our 20 year wedding anniversary so this was a special vacation for us. The condo was very clean,. The views of the beach and the sunsets off the ocean were incredible from the balcony and every room. Very quiet part of the beach from this location with little traffic. The building was secure and we liked the underground parking. Short distance to the nightlife of Daytona as well as Ormond Beach which has many nice restaurants especially if you like seafood. We had a great time and can't wait to come back soon.

Average accommodations, disappointed

The property management company was very professional and courteous. On the surface the condo was clean. But underneath the beds, sofas,and kitchen floor under the cabinets, it was disgusting. Some of the cabinets, were barely hanging and unusable. There was only one rack in the oven. There were outlets in the kitchen that didn't work, so we had to balance the griddle on the sink to make pancakes (we had to buy a spatula to make pancakes, & bowls for cereal). It only had a service for 4, not enough kitchen utensils, or dishes. We utilize the kitchen in the vacation homes we rent! The utensil drawer had only a handful of this and that! Lowest grade appliances, & poorly functioning. Broken lights switches, deck chairs falling apart. Unable to utilize the outdoor area due to construction. Which required us to use the front door, where we were daily met by a front desk man who harassed us for being in swim suites or barefooted. Unable to wash our feet off unless we entered the construction area to use the hose to wash, then pelted with debris being power washed off the building. Utilizing two sets of keys with four people was annoying, you can't even get to the beach without the key and you can't get in to use the bathroom unless you have the 2 different keys. Linens and towels are threadbare and well worn. Beautiful beach, a about 1.75 miles from the pier. If you have teenagers plan to stay closer to pier or closer to Ormand Beach. Overall we would not recommend to a friend or family member and we will not be back. Photos are old and did not reflect the current condition of the home. Many places to eat and entertain on the pier, fun for the teenage kids!

Manager response: Wow where to begin. This our first bad customer experience since we started renting this property at the beginning of 2012 and am sorry we did not meet your expectations. The pictures, video, furniture, beds, towels, linens are only a year old so if that is considered old then I guess we are not up to date there. Going forward we will provide new towels, linens and pictures every year. The last few guests who stayed in the weeks prior to you had a great time and couldn't have been happier. We try to please everyone but understand now this is impossible 100% of the time. We have a property manager who would have taken care of all your needs had you called her with an issue. She is available 24/7 as we are as well. We have 2 numbers on the vrbo site and tell all of our guests to let us know if they need Anything. I am glad to hear you were told to not walk around in bare feet as this could be a liability issue for the Condo Association. As far as the cleaning our property manager said she was there when you checked in and the place looked great and you had no complaints. We have made sure going forward our cleaning person will clean in all places not visible. We assumed this was being done. As far as the painting and the improvements being made to the building we are not in control of the scheduling and am sorry this was an issue for you. No one living in the building or any other guests that have stayed complained of being as you say pelted by debris. We have a guest who stayed with us last April and are staying again for the rest of the month of April this year. They checked in right after you and said they are having a great time. If they or any future guest has any issue at all we take care of it Immediately as we have in the past. We are not on site and only visit the property once or twice a year. This is why we utilize and pay a property manager to take care of any issue that may arise. However we can do Nothing if we are only told after you leave. There was a spacthula at the residence and we have enough plates and silverware for 6+. My wife and I work very hard, as am sure you do as well. We have 2 little girls who we try to make as happy as we can and know how important a vacation is. We tried to contact these folks via email and phone and have not received a response to discuss the matter. Thanks for the comments as we are Always looking to improve our property for our present & future guests and am sorry you won't be one of them. Take Care.

My wife and I spent six weeks at this condo this past winter and i would highly recommend it to anyone. The management staff were very courteous and prompt to rectify any problem we encountered. Beautiful place.In addition the owners were generous enough to offer us free ten days accomodation this coming fall for the unforseen inconvenience of exterior repairs being done near their unit. Very professional.
