  • Grrrreat! Great location, Great view, Great Price!

    "Love this place! Very laid back atmosphere Great place to get away & relax. . 2 pools, outdoor grills, nice patio & pool furniture and there are plenty of chairs for all guests. The property is beautiful & maintained very well. This room is perfect size for 2 people and has everything you need, refrigerator, , microwave, coffee pot, iron, hair dryer, dishes, Tv, alarm clock, pool & ocean floats, even a blender, electric burners & a george foreman grill. The views from the corner unit are amazing. The pool out the side window and the ocean out the front window. The owner is very nice & easy to work with and you never have to deal with the front desk. Several of the units on the property are actually occupied by owners or long term renters and everyone was really friendly & helpful in suggesting activities, restaurants & attractions to visit. Upon our arrival the room was very clean, & smelled wondeeful. It was also nice & cold which was a good thing after driving several hours in the hot Fl sun. Ive been coming to Daytona every year for the last 8 yrs & You wont find a better price or location in Daytona Beach. This was my 3rd time staying at Ocean Jewels & my 2nd time in this unit. I hope its available next year!!"

  • BEAUTIFUL Vacation Rental!

    "We (My son 7 years old and 1 year old dog) absolutely LOVED our stay at La Vita del Mare! This was one of the best beach houses we've ever stayed in and pet friendly! The pictures are very accurate and it's even bigger than the images show.... It's spotless and was equipped with all the amenities that made it feel like we were right at home - from cooking supplies to beach towels/chairs - it made the stay enjoyable and easy. The setting was absolutely gorgeous too...very short walk to the beach, and nestled on a beautiful private road with other beautiful homes on a quiet street. It's a very short walk to the beach. I cannot believe we found a place this nice and pet friendly. The owners Paul and Nancy have done a wonderful job with their vacation rental and even had dog treats waiting for our pup upon arrival.... I would definitely recommend this for couples, friends, or families!"

  • Loved it!

    "We had three generations staying together and having three floors worked out well. Place was very clean. We had some issue with TV and DVD working, we called and they fixed it the same day. Beach was great for riding the waves. We had the pool at the clubhouse to ourselves."

Daytona Beach Travel Tips

Known as "The World's Most Famous Beach," Daytona Beach is an ideal destination attracting sunshine-seekers. The white sand shorelines are tucked along the east coast of central Florida, brimming with family-friendly activities. The city is home to the Daytona International Speedway, which hosts the Daytona 500, one of the biggest racing events in the country.

A Glimpse at Daytona

Though the population is only about 62,000, nearly 8 million vacationers from around the world flock to Daytona's shores each year. Whatever time of year you choose to visit, the weather is balmy - which is certainly one of its biggest perks. In the summer, temperatures hover around 80 degrees while they rarely get lower than 50 degrees in the winter. For logistic purposes, the city lies about 51 miles northeast of Orlando and 86 miles southeast of Jacksonville.

The Beach

Soak up the Florida sunshine along the 23 miles of shimmering beaches. With so much sun and sand, water sports are a must. Surfing, fishing, kayaking and dolphin-watching all make the list! Ride the fad wave of paddleboarding and try it out for yourself. If you want to sail thousands of feet over the ocean, strap in for an afternoon of parasailing. At night, there are a bunch of bars that party animals will enjoy. The best part? It's open 24/7 with free access!

The Daytona 500

The Daytona 500, dubbed "The Great American Race," is the shining star of NASCAR events. For decades, the 200-lap, 500-mile-long competition has been among the biggest, richest and most iconic races in the Sprint Cup calendar. The event takes place in the Daytona International Speedway around mid-February.

Fans young and old make their way to witness not only the exhilarating sights and sounds of the final race, but also Speedweeks, which is handful of events leading up to it. If you're coming with children, it's not a bad idea to buy a day pass and bring them to the pre-race activities, including giveaways and samples. Despite the mild weather, Daytona 500 is a long event, so spectators should dress in layers. Veteran 500-goers know to bring snacks, water and ponchos, just in case.

Must-sees

- Daytona Beach Boardwalk and Pier: Recently reopening after a $5 million restoration, the Daytona Beach Boardwalk is the main drag for entertainment and family fun. The beachside stretch features the Boardwalk Amusement area, which has go-karts, a Ferris wheel and a roller coaster. You can even catch a firework display every Saturday night at 9:45 from Memorial Day through Labor Day. During the summer, there are a free concerts at the bandshell.

- Ponce Inlet: Making up the southern part of the beach, the Ponce Inlet is home to tallest lighthouse in Florida, called the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse and Museum. A National Historic Landmark, the lighthouse is open for tours throughout the year, so be sure to swing by to learn about the region's maritime history while catching panoramic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean.

- Marine Science Center: This marine center, housed in a 5,300-square-foot facility, showcases habitat dioramas and interactive adventures perfect for the little ones. Amid underwater decorations, visitors have a blast at learning about the turtle and seabird rehabilitation programs. In the center of the gallery, there is a 5,000 gallon artificial reef aquarium where you can get your hands wet with the stingray touch pool.

Wine and Dine

Climb to the Moon Tours: For a sunset unlike any other, steal away with your lover to the Climb to the Moon Tours at the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse. You'll toast the setting sun and rising full moon with drinks and hors d'oeuvres from Ponce Inlet's famous Inlet Harbor Restaurant as a tour guide cues you in the lighthouse's fascinating history. The whole event makes for a great appetizer.

If you're here during the week, check out the deals: Tuesday is a fish fry, Wednesday features all you can eat crab legs and on Thursday you can treat your palate to whole Maine lobster deals.

Owners Barbara and Jim Castronovo make you feel at home, serving up crowd favorites like shrimp marsala, margarita pizza and a thumbs-up wine list. Besides, it's a good bang for your buck.
