There is so much to do in this beautiful Florida coastal area, and this condo is right in the heart of it. Just outside your door, steps away, is one of the loveliest beaches on the east coast. Be sure to get up early and see the sunrise from your living room, have a cup of coffee or breakfast on the deck, or head on over to the beach. It is very quiet- you may be the only one there. You can boogie board, surf, fish, swim, bike, walk or run for miles, look for shells, get a tan, read a book, take a nap, take a picnic! See photos for some of the cool things you might see from our deck and our beach.
Also just outside the condo is the multi-purpose trail/wide sidewalk that runs along A1A for many miles up and down the coast- use it for roller-blading, a longer walk or bike ride for the fun of it- or to go play tennis, get some groceries, or grab breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the many nearby restaurants.
You can catch a VoTran bus (and even take your bike aboard) right in front of the convenience store next door, for even longer excursions along the coast and throughout the county. You can take VoTran conveniently to the post office, library, city and county offices, downtown, the entertainment district, the historic district, the farmer's market, and many of the other local amusements and points of interest. Use it to make getting to the races, or to the New Years Eve or Fourth of July Fireworks easier, and avoid the traffic.
For sunset viewing, or fishing, canoeing, or kayaking in the river, just head down the street out back, and you're there in 5 minutes on foot! You'll probably meet some of our great neighbors. (You can also see a spectacular sunset from the west-facing deck- see photo shot from our deck for example.)
Other activities nearby include public parks, tennis courts, golf courses, yoga studios, health clubs, spas and beauty parlors, shopping, dining, etc. Farther afield, central and coastal Florida offer you historic St. Augustine just 75 miles north, Orlando and Disney World/Epcot/Typhoon Lagoon just 60 miles west, and Cape Canaveral's Kennedy Space Center a similar distance to the south.
If you like motorcycles, you'll love the Daytona/Ormond Beach area, where people of all ages love to ride. There are many bike and accessory stores, bars and restaurants cater to the motorcycle crowd, and drivers watch for them. The condo is conveniently located on 'The Loop'- a nice ride along the coast, returning along live-oak-lined back-country roads, through swamps, over draw bridges, and along the Intra-Coastal Waterway.
If you love cars- classics, hot rods, or racing- this is the place to be. Besides Race Week and the Daytona 500 which attract a hundred thousand NASCAR fans to the Daytona Motor Speedway, there's also the Turkey Rod Run which brings over 5000 hot rods and classics at Thanksgiving. There are lots of custom and chrome shops in the area, and there are show-quality cars everywhere you look at any time of year.
If beach driving is your thing, there are miles of drivable beaches a short distance south of the condo. This is a great way to see and be seen, meet up with friends staying at other resorts, and get a whole lot of gear down to the sand for a party. These beaches are where auto racing got its start around 1905. There are great old photos of early racers at the Ormond Beach Library.
Speaking of great photos, the Southeast Museum of Photography and the School of Photography at Daytona State College are well worth the visit. Speaking of museums, the Halifax Historical Museum on Beach Street, The Klassix Auto Museum on International Speedway Boulevard, the Casements and the Ormond Museum and Botanical Garden on Granada, and the Museum of Arts and Sciences on Nova Road, are also close by and well worth the visit.
There are lots of nearby choices of food, drink and ambiance for any budget. These include coffee, ice cream, donuts and other specialties, several very good pizza places, local bars, all the usual family-style and all-you-can-eat places, burger joints, Italian, Tex-mex, Thai, Chinese, fish houses, etc. The Ormond Beach micro-brewery has recently opened on Granada.
There is a wonderful vacation waiting for you, whether you just want to relax, or you want to get out and explore everything the Ormond Beach/Daytona Beach/Central Florida area has to offer.
We provide beach chairs, deck chaises, boogie boards, cable TV, WiFi internet, books, movies, board games, cards, and puzzles so you'll have plenty to amuse you if you want to take it easy. The condo is fully furnished, equipped with linens and kitchenware, and has a washer and dryer too, for your convenience. All you really have to bring is your food, drink, swim suits, and appropriate clothing (it may be cool in winter, or on the beach at night, but it sure beats the weather up north!), Just come, and be ready to relax!
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I'm from Atlanta, GA, US, and my wife is from Toronto Canada. I'm a Landscape Architect and a Georgia Bulldog. She's a Massage Therapist. We both teach Yoga.
Why the Owner Chose Ormond By The Sea Palt, Ormond-by-the-Sea, FL, USA:
We love the beach and the Ormond Beach area, but we didn't care for the cars on the beach down in front of the resorts, so we looked a couple miles farther up toward the nature preserve. We fell in love with the beach right outside our condo door- it's so clean, wide and flat, and there are no cars/ hardly any people on it, but there are turtle nests and other wildlife. We love to body surf, boogie board, walk, run and do Yoga on the beach. You might prefer surfing, surf fishing, or wind-surfing. Or picnic, read, relax all day!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You'll love the views, the sunrises and sunsets, the breezes, the sounds and scenes of our beach. You'll love the great feeling of walking along water's edge, or splashing in the waves. Check out the stars at night! And you'll fall in love with the Ormond Beach area, too. There is so much to do!
