Come Enjoy a Wonderful Beach Vacation!

A little side note: If you have ever stayed at Walt Disney's luxury, up-scale Vacation Club villas -- i.e. Animal Kingdom Lodge, Wilderness Lodge, Boardwalk Resort, Beach Club, Old Key West, Hilton Head or Vero Beach -- this is the same type of quality you will experience in our beach condo.

P.S. Tim is an MD (ENT surgeon). Tricia is an RN. We have high expectations of clean. Ellen, our housekeeper, does a wonderful job of cleaning.

Guest Testimonials:

Tricia and Tim,
Our stay in unit 905 at the Sand Dollar, right on the beach, has been most enjoyable. It definitely was a “home” away from home.

There were no amenities lacking and we were very impressed by the cleanliness and impeccable décor. It is evident that a great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into making the unit as eye-pleasing and comfortable as it is.

We will both miss the sunshine on the balcony, our afternoons by the pool and our morning walks on the beach. We go home with many fond memories of our Florida vacation at Daytona Beach Shores.

Hopefully, we will return in the future and do it again. Thank you both very, very much.

Don and Carolyn

Tim and Tricia,

What a lovely condo. It was a privilege to spend 2 weeks in this attractive, lovely place. We have enjoyed the beach every day and the pool and the Jacuzzi. We were so tired when we arrived.

We are leaving much rested. The condo was quiet with unbelievable sunsets and sunrises. It was so nice to have our family reunion here and lots of good food.

We hope we will be able to come back next year.

Tricia, your instructions were very adequate and I know you are proud of your condo. It was so unique to see the intercoastal as well as the ocean. So comfortable and cozy.

Thanks Much,
Eleanor and Ben

P.S. We especially enjoyed all the videos and CD’s, as our 6-year-old was kept entertained! What a restful place! I work in youth detention and have needed a lot of sleep. Your beautiful bedroom and lovely beach was “just what the Doctor ordered!”

Thank You Again!
Jennifer & Rick (and Chris)

Dear Dunlevy’s,

Our week here at the Sand Dollar was wonderful. We enjoyed lots of sun and warm weather. Everyone here was very friendly and helpful all week. We hope to return again next year and want to thank you for allowing us to share your home. It really was like a little piece of heaven.

Thank you.
Bill and Debbie (Warren, Ohio)

Dear Tim & Tricia,

Just a little note to let you know that my husband and I truly enjoyed your stay at your condo. Our stay will be an unforgettable one. It was just what we needed to come home to after working all day (at the Daytona 500 Races).

It felt very warm and was truly comfortable -- so comfortable that my husband and I will be purchasing the exact same mattress you have in the master bedroom.

Everyone here was very nice and hospitable. We especially enjoyed the peace and quiet. Again, it was our pleasure, and we will definitely be giving you a call back. We hope to be visiting your wonderful condo again next year.

Thank you for being so nice and accommodating.

Thank you,
Two Happy People!!!

Dear Tricia & Tim,

We had a GREAT time! Your condo is beautiful! The view from the balcony is outstanding! The weather was great (only 1 day without sun). The sunrises and sunsets were truly awesome! The time went by way too fast. We hate to leave and go back to the “daily grind”.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home!

Tim & Tricia,

Many thanks from my whole family. We had a blast and the place is great! Mom loves the décor more here than her condo 901. A great pleasure to meet you, Tricia (via internet and phone). I will be back next year!

Hi Tricia,

We had an amazing time in Daytona. It was relaxing and fun. I didn’t know at the time we would be down there, but we even got to watch the space shuttle launch!

Thanks for renting us your condo. Tim and you have a beautiful place!

We took a few of your cards to pass on to some of friends who may be looking for a place.

Thanks again,
Jackie B.

P.S. You were right about the great location of your condo. All of us parents were glad not to be in the “festive” area of Daytona (as you had put it to me).
________________________________

Dear Tim & Tricia,

Our week in your condo has been very enjoyable. We have spent countless hours playing on the beach and swimming in the pool. The kids have had a wonderful time collecting shells. We survived (and very much enjoyed) a day at Sea World, along with every other Spring Breaker from the North. We have had beautiful weather for the first week in April. It has been mostly in the upper 70’s/80’s. Thank you for a great vacation experience. It was our first spring break family vacation and it has been one to remember. Thank you for letting us stay in your home.

Tim & Veronica. Ryan and Heather.

Tim & Tricia,

Thank you for such a wonderful condo. This was our 1st trip and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! The beautiful sunrise and sunset were just the tip of the great things we saw. My personal favorite was the daily dolphin sightings! Each morning they played close to shore and it was a sight I’ll never forget. One other great sighting was the space shuttle launch! Again, something we’ll never forget. It amazed us that we could see it so clearly from the balcony.

The folks here at the condo were very nice – especially the superintendent. We look forward to our next visit and will most definitely request your condo again.

Thanks again and God Bless,
Mike & Amy (Columbus, Ohio)

Dear Tim and Tricia,

The four of us all enjoyed our stay here in your wonderful condo. Thank you for being so helpful and making your condo feel like home. The beach was more beautiful than we could have every expected. While visiting we took a tour with Sun Cruz Casino, which actually helped us financially. We also enjoyed a fun-filled day at Sea World.

Although we are fighting sunburn and sad to leave, we again wanted thank you for everything, and look forward to staying in #905 in the future.

Other Amenities

  • SEA TURTLES: Florida is the most important turtle-nesting environment in the United States with more than 50,000 nesting turtles summering in our waters. The female sea turtles begin coming ashore in May, and newborn hatching continues through October. Sea turtles are awkward on the sand, and the nesting process is laborious and difficult. The mother turtle will use her rear flippers to dig a hole and will lay about 100 “ping-pong ball” sized eggs in the nest. She will camouflage the hole by covering it with sand before leaving it. The female sea turtle never returns to her nest. The eggs incubate 2 months. As the eggs hatch, the hatchlings will collapse the hole by thrashing about, allowing them to climb out of the nest. The newborn turtles instinctively wait for the cooling of the sand to indicate nightfall before leaving the nest. They will then scramble to the ocean to seek protection....moreless

Clean, well stocked, constantly maintained, nicely decorated, new linens through out the unit. Many amenities provided. Full size laundry room in unit. Secured, reserved underground parking. Very secure building. Two elevators -- Easy access for folks who have difficulty walking. Wonderful 85 degree Heated Pool directly on the ocean beach.
