Lovely condo with super owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week in Barbara and Gary's condo at Sand Dollar. We had a wonderful time! The condo is so warm and inviting, with beach touches that are so fun. I love the dolphin coffee table. The beds were comfortable and the closets were filled with extra pillows and blankets. The walk in shower is fabulous. Sand Dollar is a very nice building with a great location. Be sure and check out the sauna in the men's and women's bathrooms in the hall leading out to the pool. I look forward to another trip soon and would love to stay in 802 again!

As pictured...this condo is perfect! Extraordinary balcony!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome experience it was to stay in this condo in July! Definitely the best vacation accommodations I have ever had. The condo is exactly as pictured here. Gary & Barbara are wonderful & easy to work with. So what can I say here that the description & reviews don't already s? First, bc this was my 1st time booking via vrbo/HomeAway, I was nervous. I'd heard of scammers & since the owners don't offer online booking or PayPal payments, I did my research. It was not needed. Barbara & Gary are experienced & completely legit. They operate via personal checks & USPS, UPS, or FedEx. So you can learn from me & not have to worry like I did.

Underground parking has a fairly low clearance. Cartop carriers & really tall vehicles might have issues. You park in the garage, unload, & then check in using the sheet within the packet that they mail to you. Easy peasy.

The master bed is firm. The guest bed is softer. I prefer a softer bed myself, but slept in the master bed like a rock. I found it to be comfortable & supportive.

You will need to bring toilet paper, papertowels, & laundry detergent. 1 of each is supposed to be supplied to get you started but Housekeeping must have forgot ours. No biggie as we'd need to get some anyway. Also, not the owners' fault. However, we didn't need to get dishwasher detergent as it was provided. The kitchen has tons of stuff - pots, pans, utensils, appliances - everything we needed & more.

I noticed 2 old beach chairs in the laundry room, but didn't use them.

The balcony is extraordinary! I watched the sunrise almost every morning & even saw some sharks then, but never during the daytime. It was very cool. The balcony was my favorite place to spend time.

The pool is a saltwater pool. It's ok. I found the temperature of the water to be like bathwater though. Still, it's nice & better than no pool. We didn't get in the hottub.

When we were packing up to leave, I was looking for some lost headphones in the couch & discovered a hide-away bed. We didn't need it but I never saw that mentioned anywhere so I thought I'd mention it here. Bonus!

The elevators were swift & generally uncrowded. In fact, because this is a smaller complex, we found them to be empty most of the time.

This condo is the best of the best. Gary & Barbara have done a wonderful job decorating, updating, & supplying this unit. They were a pleasure to work with & responded quickly. If we return to Daytona, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We had an awesome month in this spectacular direct oceanfront condo. The entire condo was beautifully furnished and was very clean. The view of the ocean was stunning with a 180 degree curved balcony. The location is great and is close to everything. Underground parking as well as the entire building is secure. We would like to thank Gary and Barbara for letting us stay in their wonderful beach home. We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone visiting Daytona.

Awesome View

  • 5 of 5

WE had the great pleasure of spending Christmas this year at this lovely place, I'd personally like to Thank Gary Phillips for making things go so very smooth. Nice walks on the Beach Lovely Balconies, decent pool. The hot tub was lacking a bit in heat and depth, but that's not a real issue. We hope to be spoiled again real soon. Thanks again for having us.
