About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This Direct Oceanfront condo is GORGEOUS! It is professionally designed and decorated, with the goals of personal comfort and relaxation. This is a direct oceanfront unit with private balcony. It is pool-front, too (this condo has two pools - one is heated). The unit has a separate bedroom, two full baths, and open floor plan for living/dining/kitchenette area. The master bedroom has a pillow-top mattress and carpeting; the remainder of the unit is ceramic-tiled. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and dinnerware for four. The living area has a new reclining sofa with pullout queen bed. The private balcony has three chairs and table, and the most incredible view of the beautiful beach right before you.

With four hundred feet of oceanfront, beautiful ocean views are available in every direction from the patio area. Along the entire span is a deck with bricked pavers, picnic tables, plentiful chairs/tables/lounges, tiki cabana, barbeques and even a kiddie pool. A full fitness center is available 24/7.

Ocean Jewels is right in the heart of Daytona Beach. The complex is just six short blocks to International Speedway Blvd. It is within walking distance to the Main Street Pier and Ocean Walk, with free band-shell concerts and fireworks every weekend in season!

Great shops, the newly built Ocean Center, restaurants (indoor and outdoor) – there’s lots of entertainment here! You can sit at Mai Tai's on the outdoor patio watching your favorite bands play for free while sipping a drink and watching the ocean waves as the sun goes down!

It’s incredibly easy to have a memorable vacation here!

About Nicole Paxton

We live in Winchester Virginia. Our family has been to Daytona Beach several times for the races and we fell in love with the wide beach, fun activities for both kids and adults, and all there is to see and do!

Nicole Paxton purchased this condo in 2009

What makes this condo unique

It is gorgeous with a direct ocean view, balcony and pool view too! The inside is like none other in the complex - designer decorated and faux-painted in soft, rich colors. The bedroom has a king size bed! The living area couch opens to a queen size sleeper. Kitchen, two full baths (travertine tile) so it is easy getting ready to go out on the town! There are two pools - one is heated in the colder months! It has a large fitness center (if you don't think that bobbing up and down in the waves all day is enough exercise)! We really tried to make this condo as comfortable as possible - we want you to come back and stay here again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Nicole,



I hope you are having a lovely summer or at least what is left of the few days before school begins. We greatly enjoyed visiting Daytona Beach and seeing the area that Hannah will be living. Your condo was decorated beautifully and the view was gorgeous. Thank you for the opportunity to stay.

Reviews

Loved the beautiful decor!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 1, 2014

I had a spring getaway by the beach, and was delighted to find a beautifully decorated and wonderfully furnished condo overlooking the ocean. My first impression was how neat and orderly the condo was. I was instantly comfortable and the condo had everything I needed to host a few cubs and mama bear for a relaxing time on the beach. Recent upgrades were everywhere, from the tile backsplash in the bathrooms to the glass top mini-stove. The condo had a unique flair and the walls were professionally textured and painted recently. The bathrooms were immaculate and boasted a separate artistically tiled shower and tub, as well as a fountain style sink. The bed was comfortable and cozy and the linens were clean and fresh. Utensils, cups, glasses, dishes, towels, games, boogie boards, rafts, and other basic things were provided in this well -furnished cozy condo on the ocean shore. In fact I had all of the comforts of home and everything I needed to entertain my bear troop. There was even enough room on the leather pull out sofa to sleep an extra guest, as mama bear became so relaxed and fell sleepy. This property is located in the center of all things beach and everything I needed was close by as far as stores, shops, take-out and delivery foods. Walks on the beach, local shopping and restaurants, and local attractions like the boardwalk and parks, game rooms, and bars are all within walking distance.

Excellent! 4.4/5 -

Loved the condo, not too crazy about Daytona Beach.

  • 4 of 5

Our condo was everything we wanted. IT was very clean, well supplied and a great view of the beach and ocean. We really liked the 2 pools and the large sun deck. The grounds were kept clean and there was plenty of outdoor furniture. Our only complaints, couldn't find proper remotes or access the Internet..The second bathroom was on the small side. It had been years since we visited DB . It was very busy and too many high rise buildings , our building was not. Overall we did enjoy our stay and would stay in our condo only at another beach

VERY HAPPY

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. They had everything you need for a good beach vacation in the unit. Do not judge a book by its cover, when we were pulling up to the condo we were surprised by the poor condition of the outside of the building. The grounds and pool were beautiful but the building needs some work. The unit itself was immaculate and nicely updated. We had an issue with the power the first day and it was resolved very quickly. The following day the whole building was without power for a long time but it had nothing to do with the building. Plenty of parking. Bring a cart with you for luggage because the building only has one. We were fortunate to grab it when we arrived but I looked for it for over an hour when we got ready to leave and it was never found. Overall we had an amazing time!

Where to begin...

  • 1 of 5

We arrived on Saturday to learn that the unit above had a water leak, which flowed into the 2nd bath shower, leaving it unusable. We were informed that someone would be there Monday AM. When we hadn't heard from the owner as of Sunday PM, I sent a message to get a time frame. She responded early the next morning with "sometime today". At 8:49AM we were informed they would be there between 9:30-10. We left the condo for a few hours, returning around 11, and found the area untouched. Since we didn't want to leave our valuables, we decided to go shopping, rather than enjoy the beach or pool. When we returned to the condo later in the afternoon, part of the damaged ceiling had been removed, leaving a gapping whole and debris in the shower stall. None of this was remedied during our 5 night stay, leaving the shower unusable for the entire 5 nights. I don't think most people would want to shower with the possibilty of some thing falling out of the ceiling onto them.

When I requested some type of compensation from the owner, I received no response. In fact, I had to inquire as to when I could expect my deposit refund in order for it to get processed, 11 days after we left.

Also, during our stay, we had no water one evening and we lost power another night. Please realize that this building is old, and you may experience similar inconveniences. Both issues were resolved, but believe me, it is no fun to have the power go off in the middle of a shower.

The unit also has a dehumidifier, which I realize is necessary. However, at night it sounds like a jet is coming in for a landing. So, if you are sleeping on the sofa bed, plan on using earplugs.

While the unit is advertised as Designer-Decorated, there are some obvious "corners" that were left unfinished. I'm sure most Designers would not approve. The unit is smaller than we thought, so the photographer did a great job.

I would just be cautious renting from this owner, as she doesn't seem to think that not being able to use one shower constitutes any reimbursement. We chose this condo specifically because it had 2 showers. I wish I could attach pictures to this review, but I cannot.

Live and learn.

Owner's Response: As a renter I can understand Patti's concerns. As an owner let me also respond to some of her comments. 1. I notified them of the water leak in the unit above us that damaged our shower ceiling prior to their arrival. As soon as I was notified by maintance. 2. We were hoping the issue could wait until after their visit but the water leak became so bad it could not wait. I relaid information to Patti as it was being given to me. I am over a 1000 miles away I can not just pop over. 3. This renter never asked for any kind of compensation- never told me the second shower was not useable at all nor said the reason they booked was because of the second shower the first I knew any of this was in the review. 4. The power did go off during their visit which was back on in less then 10. Minutes. These are frustrating issues that as an owner I have no control over. I however did my best to keep them informed and attempted to resolve the issues asap
