2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Oceanfront Condo on Famous Daytona Beach
John and Karen Gallagher
Why John and Karen Gallagher chose Daytona Beach Shores
The Starfish Condo has been in our family for over 25 years. We are happy to share the view and fun we have had at this beach over the years with you. Enjoy the slower pace and find shells on the beach to remember your stay. Crabbing on the beach at night is one of our favorite activities with the kids. If you like to fish, you have plenty of options. You can fish off of Crabby Joe's pier which is 1/2 mile up the beach. You can surf fish from the beach, or you can do a charter boat at Ponce Inlet to go out into the ocean for a chance to catch bigger fish. Manatee tours, hang gliding, paddle boarding, a walk up Ponce de Leon lighthouse are all just minutes away from you at the Shores Club. The Main Street Pier has a lot to keep the kids busy. There are rides, restaurants, Daytona Lagoon water park and games at the Pier boardwalk. Main Street has shops, restaurants and famous Boot Hill Saloon for the adults in the family.
What makes this Condo unique
Why not have a combination vacation with a stay at the beach and drive to Orlando for some amusement park fun as well. Orlando is a little more than an hour away from Daytona Beach. May 1st through October 31st is Turtle Season in Daytona. These magnificent animals emerge from the surf at night to lay their eggs in nests dug into the dry sand, then return to the sea. Two months later about a hundred baby turtles (hatchlings) emerge from each of these nests and crawl to the ocean. You wlll see nests marked off near the dunes during this season. We watched a SpaceX launch taking off from Cape Canaveral from the comfort of our balcony. This was a very unique experience that we won't soon forget. It was awesome!!!! Check the www.spacecoastlaunches.com site to see when the next launch will take place. It is definitely worth staying up late to see it. You can ride a Segway Tour on Daytona Beach and downtown Daytona or do a Lighthouse Segway tour.

We travel to Florida each year to visit family and this is the 4th year doing a vacation rental and this was the best. The location is very convenient and the overall property is well maintained. The owners have done many renovations along with pleasant decorating. We really hope this condo will be available when we go to book next year. Thanks
Our new favorite place!
I've been going to Daytona Beach for over 50 years, so naturally, I have my favorite places to eat, play and stay. After staying in this condo, I have a new favorite!
This unit is very well appointed, with beautiful furniture and updated appliances. In fact, after using the kitchen, my wife wanted to pack it up and take it home with us! The condo is perfectly situated on the no-drive part of Daytona Beach, which is great for families with small children. And, because it's on the second floor, you get a great view of the beach and the Atlantic, while still having the convenience of not having too far to haul groceries and beach stuff.
My wife and I loved this condo and would differently stay here again!
Gulf Shores Club - Daytona Beach
We loved our stay at Gulf Shores Club. The condo was actually what we thought & more. Would stay there again.
Family Get Together
Had such a great time with family at the beach 🌴.
The condo was perfect. Nice and clean, would definitely stay there again. Owner was easy to communicate with.
Place was very clean, up to date and decorated nicely- great location
There are plenty of local attractions to keep you busy on your stay. Ponce de Leon lighthouse is visible at night from the balcony of the condo, but is definitely worth the 4.6 mile drive to take a walk up the lighthouse steps to enjoy the view! Ponce Inlet beach is nearby and seems to collect the largest of the sea shells in Daytona. Daytona International Speedway is a destination in itself and gives tours of the speedway. The Main Pier boardwalk is not to be missed for family fun. There are rides for both young and old and the bandshell has musical entertainment. There is a movie theater near the pier as well. Golf is available throughout the area with the home of LPGA located right in Daytona Beach. Pier fishing can be done from the Sunglow Pier located 1/2 mile up the beach. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at Crabby Joe's on the Sunglow Pier as well.
With museums, a lighthouse visit, golf and fishing, you will have to try hard to fit some paddleboard, surfing or beach time into your busy schedule.
