HORIZONS CONDO FILMED IN MOVIE ' DAYS OF THUNDER'. Pick the week (horizons requires minimum of seven day rentals) you want to have the best vacation here in World Famous Daytona Beach less than a mile from the action at the pier and Main Street. Our 9th floor condo not only gives you all the amenities of the Horizons Condo (pool, exercise room, sauna, totally secure underground parking, and locked entries with 24 hour monitoring in your room) but also being on the north east side (x02 numbers only)gives you the wonderful views of the beach for at least 15 miles north and 15 Miles south.

If you don't want to drive, just step outside and hop the trolley down to the Pier, ampitheatre, and the Ocean Center for major entertainment, or if you feel ambitious, ride the Beach Bikes we provide. We also provide beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, skim and Boogie boards, two beach bikes, and for the kids sand toys .

Within walking distance or a short ride on the trolley are fine dining areas and a shopping center with a food market, various department stores, and a bowling alley. After shopping grab the trolley and return to the condo.

We are planning on living here in the not- too- distant future so we bought furnishings to last us. We have a LazBoy sectional with two recliners and a full size hideabed. The coffee table has a lift -up top for your drink or to act as a desk for your laptop. Watch a movie or TV on the 47'Flat screen TV with Blu-Ray DVD player and cable. The master bedroom has a king- size bed and 32' Flat screen TV and a DVD player. Also the room has two massive closets and a dresser allowing you to move in and not live out of a suitcase. The guest bedroom has a queen-size bed and a 26' Flat screen TV with a built- in DVD player, large closet, dresser and lingerie chest. Our dining room has a bar- height butterfly table that opens to seat 6 people in comfort while enjoying the ocean view. All the rooms have an unlimited view of the ocean through the floor-to-ceiling windows. On the large wrap around balcony we have three seating areas, one outside the guest bedroom with a small table with two chairs, outside the master bedroom is another area with a table and two chairs and then off the living room we have balcony- height table with two chairs allowing a beautiful view of the beach, while enjoying a cool drink or watching the moon over the ocean or fireworks at the pier in the summer.

We have also provided in the kitchen place settings for at least 6 and small appliances, toaster, blender, coffee pot, griddle, and waffle iron.

There is a small DVD Library and games for the adults and kids to while away the occasional day we might have rain, watching the latest movie or enjoy playing games.

Why Valerie Salvato chose Daytona Beach

This is our future home, the view is outstanding from the 9th floor and the condo has all the amenities you could ever want, Secure entries, Secure Underground parking, exercise room, sauna, large pool and huge sunning area, all right on the ocean

What makes this condo unique

I think we enjoy most just looking across the beach to the ocean and watching the dolphins and sea gulls and in the evening the pelicans winding home right by the balcony at the 9th floor level. Evenings on the balcony watching the moon-light reflecting off the ocean and going to sleep with the sounds of the waves on the beach. I also enjoy going out in the morning with the surf rod and trying to catch the meal of the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent the month of march in your condo. The weather wasn't the best but we did a lot of museums, took the Dineand Cruise (not very interesting but food was good) went to de land which I would recommend and played games and went to movies. The days on the beach were great. Wonderful to have chairs and umbrellas. Our kids and granddaughter (22) months came and loved playing with your sand toys. We've rented many condos but none as well furnished as your condo. We had everything we could have asked for or needed. Valerie even had a high chair and pack and play for our little one. We give your condo a 5 star rating

Nice Condo

  • 3 of 5

Having stayed at Horizons before I am familiar with Horizons and would highly recommend it when staying in Daytona Beach. We found the staff personable and helpful. This particular unit was very nice. There was plenty of room for the five of us, comfortable beds, and excellently furnished. There were a few things that weren't quite up to par though. One review stated there were binoculars and the property description stated there were umbrellas and chairs. Unfortunately there were no binoculars only a case. The only umbrella provided had already been destroyed so I had to buy another one even though I had one at home that I could have brought with me. Two beach chairs were also provided but one was broken and unusable. Another thing I think other renters will want to know, especially when coming with 5 people, is the 2nd bathroom is part of the master bedroom. If someone is sleeping in the master bedroom you are down to one bathroom. Also is someone is using the master bedroom bathroom then no one else can come into the master bedroom - like when getting ready to go to dinner. The last issue is with paying a cleaning fee - I assumed the previous renters had also paid the cleaning fee. Then why did it look like the floor had not been swept? There were crumbs around the dining table, in the hallway, and in one bathroom. Once I saw the dirty floor I had to assume the bathrooms had not been cleaned either and had to clean them upon arrival. As I stated before, this was not our first time to a Horizons condo and expected more from our past experience.

Owner's Response: We are sorry our condo didn't meet your expectations. We strive to provide everything needed for your vacation. However this is our first negative review since beginning 4 years ago and certainly gives us. The incentive to strive harder and look at our procedures that need improving. The condo was cleaned before your arrival and it appears some sand was missed. We will certainly be more diligent in our cleaning process. The broken chair and umbrella can't be explained away. We At the beginning of summer buy new beach chairs, umbrellas, skim boards, boogie boards, and verify the bicycles are in good workin order with duplicate items in the storage area. We, in the past, have relied on the renters notifying the manager if anything needed replacement. As you noted, that must not be working therefore we will once a Month inspect all equipment and replace as necessary. However, renters are still encouraged to notify the manager if any problem exist so it can be immediately resolved. Again sorry we didn't meet your expectation, we'll try harder

Everything and More !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time & enjoyed staying in the unit very much. It is very spacious, and everyone had their own rooms to lounge around in, as well as the balcony with the beautiful view of the ocean. You can hear the ocean from the balcony. I would recommend this condo to anyone.Very clean. The staff does an outstanding job of keeping the place maintained and answering questions if they arise.

The pictures on this site do not the condo justice. It is very large and the master bathroom is awesome!!!!! You really don't need to bring anything but clothes, toiletries, and food. Everything else is covered from boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, and a rolling cooler. And don’t worry about getting luggage and groceries up to the 9th floor. Luggage carts and grocery carts are provided, and the two elevators are very fast! LOVE< LOVE> LOVE this place. If and when we come back to Daytona, This is the place for us. Thank You

Our 20 hour trip from Illinois to Florida was worth it .My stay at the Horizons condo was WONDERFUL. We enjoyed to the fullest. The view was beautiful especially at sunrise. The condo for my point of view was comfortable, clean and luxurious. Thank you very much. My family especially my children will get a wonderful memory.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I came down with another couple and the setup was perfect because both bedrooms are good sizes and one has a queen, the other has a king. This condo was awesome. Being on the 9th floor was perfect because it was high enough to see miles away (they provide binoculars) but low enough to hear the waves. Condo looks just like the pictures, but even better in person. LOTS of fun things were provided in the parking garage in front of the designated parking space to use and play with on the beach. This condo and all the ones directly above and below it are the best out of the four condos on each floor because they face DIRECTLY out to the ocean which means not only do you have direct ocean view, but it is also the only condo on each floor that has views up and down both coastlines from the balcony. Perfect location for the condo on the beach because it is away from the trash and overcrowding near the pier. Also you can drive on Daytona Beach and this condo is right in the middle of two access points to drive onto the beach, which means that cars have to drive the farthest from those access points to get in front of this condo, which means there is hardly any cars that come to the beach area in front of the condo and so most of the people there are staying in this building and not from somewhere else. One tip: walk south down the beach a couple of condos and you will find this awesome bar on the beach with outside seating, great bar food and drinks. When we left, we cleaned the apartment and got all of our deposit back. And Valerie is great at her job. Rent this condo, you will not be disappointed. GREAT VACATION!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our Family of 4 stayed here for 6 days/5 nights, which was Absolutely AWESOME and the views were FANTASTIC! Very quiet and private! The condo was clean, the furniture was new and very comfortable! Everything was there that we needed. We had a good portion of the beach to ourselves -which was Awesome! we seen many dolphins, collected a ton of shells, found star fish, played in the water, our kids loved it! We walked the beach in the mornings and evenings, went to bed and woke up listening to the waves crashing, it was so awesome! They have underground parking, which is nice. Publix and other stores and Surf Shops were nearby. we truly had an AWESOME time & I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CONDO! I searched for 4 days before finding THIS one, believe me, BOOK THIS CONDO -the more toward the Pier, the dirtier the beach; we seen alot of garbage; plastic zip lock bags, ciggarette butts, soda cans, broken toys, etc in front by Ocean Walk (which is where I almost booked 1st), not to mention their public restrooms down that way-someone literally pooped all over the girls bathroom floor! it was disgusting-THANK GOD I DID NOT book Ocean Walk! TRUST ME FOLKS ~ BOOK THIS CONDO!!! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY - unless you don't book it!
