About the property

3 Bedrooms with king sized beds, 3.5 Bathrooms

The spectacular views start as soon as you get off the private elevator and walk through the foyer. It extends through the living room ending on the massive private balcony where you will enjoy morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the ocean. The fourth floor level means you can easily observe beach action starting with early morning walkers and continuing throughout the day as families enjoy beach activities. Whether it is cooking on the outdoor Jenn Aire grill or watching dolphins swim off shore, everyone agrees that the balcony is the heart of the condo.

There are 3 master suites each featuring king beds with private baths, walk in closets and 55-60 inch HDTV’s. The oceanside master suite walks out to the 500 square foot balcony whereas the other master suites open to a balcony from which to enjoy the spectacular sunsets over the intracoastal waterway.

The living room features views of the ocean in addition to the 65 inch Smart HDTV with Blu-ray player and DVR so you don’t have to miss any of your favorite programing or you can catch up on that Netflix series you’ve been thinking about. Of course wireless high speed (up to 200 mb/s) internet is included.

Ocean Vistas is located on a pristine beach front and has an oceanfront fitness center, heated pool and jacuzzi. There is a business center and gated underground parking with 24/7 security. The club room has a reading area, TV, wet bar and pool table. This is a 5 star property with weekday concierge service.

The north pier is less than 2 miles away where there are several great restaurants but our fully equipped gourmet kitchen is a chefs’ dream with ocean view, walk in pantry, center island prep sink and convection ovens.

Daytona beach is a great place to enjoy a morning run or feel the smooth sand as you walk barefoot for miles. It is located about 15 minutes from Daytona International Speedway and less than an hour and a half from Orlando airport, Disney World, Universal Studios theme park, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center and St Augustine.

About Gary Johnson

We live in MN and have enjoyed vacationing in Daytona Beach for more than 15 years.

Gary Johnson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gary Johnson chose Daytona Beach Shores

We love the unbelievable view of the ocean from our direct beachfront condo. We were attracted because of the clean, modern architecture and feel it is the best Daytona Beach has to offer. We plan to live there full time when I retire from my medical practice in MN.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this property when we first walked through the front door. The modern architecture, tall ceilings, open, airy feel to all the rooms as well as the stunning ocean view sealed the deal.

Fantastic property with fantastic service

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to stay in the Daytona area, search no further. This property is great. We're a family of 5 (2 boys and 1 girl). The condo is very spacious and well designed. The furnishings and appliances are perfectly clean and modern. The views from throughout the condo are beautiful. Best of all the owners are extremely communicative and attentive. I truly have no negative feedback. I will definitely rent again when visiting the area.

Just as fabulous as the first time!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this condo. It was just as beautiful and luxurious as it was 2 years ago. Our two boys 9 and 12 call it "The Penthouse" because it is so spacious. It has everything you need and it is all top notch! From the super large super soft beach towels to the high tech appliances to the super comfy beds, you couldn't ask for better! The bed in the master bedroom is the most comfortable bed I've ever been in! I want to replicate it at my home! The ocean front view is amazing! We spent most of our time hanging out on the huge outside patio enjoying the view when we weren't on the gorgeous beach or in the hot tub or pool. The owner Gary was very easy to work with and very attentive to our needs. We look forward to working with him again in the future. We would definitely recommend!!!

Best condo ever

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Daytona for years. This condo was by far the most beautiful condo ever. The johnson's have equipped their condo with everything you need for a vacation. Peggy (property manager) was wonderful to work with. She was available to us whenever I texted her. She went over everything in the unit and complex at our arrival. She was always available for any questions e had. We will definitely return to Ocean Vista for our vacation rental. I would like to thank Gary & his wife for sharing this lovely condo with us.

Amazing condo...luxurious, clean & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and luxurious. The balcony was amazing...just as pictured. Lots of necessities for the beach were available to use including towels, boards, chairs. Brannon was great to provide recommendations for local restaurants. The property had great amenities, was in a great location and we were sad to leave! Looking forward to coming back!!

Excellent location, over the top condo, love the huge balcony.

  • 5 of 5

Gary and have an amazing condo! Thank you for opening it up to those of us who would never be able to own something like it. Ocean Vistas is close to everything. The condo was amazing. Well stocked, large TV's in all bedrooms. Bedding was very comfortable. Condo was very clean. We loved the balcony with the grill and plenty of seating for all. Peggy and Brannon (property managers) were excellent. They promptly responded to any inquiries we had. We will definitely be returning to Ocean Vistas again.
