Fantastic, Beautiful, Family apartment in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a spacious apartment located in a great area of Daytona Beach. It was a short walk to the beach and the owners provided everything we needed for relaxation and fun at the beach!! I loved that this side of the beach was not crowded so the kids were able to play freely without being in the way of other people.

The owners are really friendly and helpful. They responded to my inquiry and follow up messages very quickly. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and was very respectful of our privacy. They keep this apartment clean/neat and the pictures are accurate.

We will definitely be staying here every time we visit Daytona and highly recommend this apartment to others.

Thank you all for the great experience!! See you next time!!

Comfy place close to a beautiful, quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

Just what we wanted. Quiet place, walking distance to a beautiful beach (and away from the spring break crowds). The apartment had everything we needed and the owners are super nice and accommodating.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been more pleased with the property or my renters, they treated me like extended family being gracious, cheerful and always attentive to my needs. I traveled to Daytona on business for almost seven weeks and wanted to rent an apartment opposed to staying in a hotel. This was an ideal location and suited my needs perfectly! The apartment was clean and beds were medium to firm making for a good night's sleep.

The most stress-free vacation you'll ever book

  • 5 of 5

I'm not big on writing reviews.. unless it's either so terrible that I feel obligated to warn other consumers, or so amazing that praise is due, which is the case here. The rental itself is impeccably clean. Everything was tidy, and not dusty which is often a problem I find with some rentals. As earlier reviewers stated, the apt is much bigger than the pictures present. The bedroom has 2 queen beds, and another bunk bed/ trundle bed, and there is still a vast amount of space in the room. Beds and bedding were comfortable, and soft. No scratchy/ dusty/ comforters here. The bathroom is also very large, and not cramped at all. The full size kitchen is fully stocked with every gadget imaginable, along with a full range and oven, and full sized fridge. Juicers, blenders, crockpot, convection oven, wine glasses, dishes, microwave. Whatever your cooking style, they're ready for you. There's also a BBQ grill outside. There is plenty of eating space with an eating counter, as well as a full dining table. The living area is also spacious with a full couch and 2 love seats. If you are traveling with kids, there is plenty of space to not feel cooped up, and give the kids an area to hang out and play. As far as location, you can't beat it. You are directly across the road from the beach, with both the drive and no-drive sections of the beach accessible. I prefer the no-drive section, and the drive area was still far enough on the sand that it wasn't at all disruptive. For those of you that do prefer it, it's probably a 2 min car drive to the access point. The beach is beautiful, and we did not leave to do anything else while we were here because of it. For those looking for more to do, Daytona Beach offers anything you can possibly want within a very short distance. The great thing about this property is that it's directly in the center between hustling bustling party Daytona Beach, and quiet sleepy beach town. Most importantly, I can't say enough nice things about the owners. Very humble, down-to-earth people. They are very hospitable, and detail-oriented and extremely attentive. Mike and Christina were very respectful of our privacy, while still being a text or phone call away if we needed anything. My security deposit was also promptly refunded, which is nice since many other places have taken weeks in the past. Our family will definitely be back, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! Beautiful property, location, and owners!

Excellent, Superb, Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

If you pass over this listing then you are missing out. The apartment, the family and people, the area, and the beach are all just wonderful beyond words. I almost hesitate to write such a great review because I don't want them to get super booked up and hard to reserve! Christina and Mike are some of the best, most authentic people I have ever met. I can't wait to come back. I am proud to say my kids and I not only found a beautiful and wholesome family vacation spot, but also made new friendships in the process.

Location: Awesome! Directly on the strip near anything you could possibly need or want. Target, Walmart, restaurants, liquor stores, surf shops, souvenir shops and local landmarks like the lighthouse and marine center are ALL less that 12-15 mins away.

Property: Extremely clean and well kept. Obviously designed for multiple people and very family friendly. By the end of the week it felt like home. Lots of living and sleeping space and the yard is awesome for little ones to play. Outside shower is perfect for rinsing off; the only thing I should note (if you are a big person such as my husband) is that the inside shower is a little small. The bathroom is big and was very clean! The shower was great and easy to use- just keep in mind that it's a bit snug. My 6 foot, 220 lb. hubby is gonna have to squeeze haha! But th apartment is very lovely and great for kids and families, as well as other groups.

Beach: BEAUTIFUL! The beach near this rental is so beautiful. We saw dolphins almost everyday. It is clean and there are truly only locals and a handful of other small families. I was thrilled that my sons could enjoy the ocean without being exposed to any notorious Spring Breaker craziness.

Owners: I can't say enough. Christina and Mike and their wonderful kids are such a great family! Very helpful and friendly, polite and kind. Mike showed my kids how to dig for crabs on the beach and Christina made them feel right at home. They are very clear that if you would like to visit and hang out that is great and if you prefer more privacy that is fine too- so whether you have kids (like us) and enjoy making new friends... or if you need more alone time, this place is perfect for both either way.

Downsides: Truly none. I have never had more fun or felt more safe, secure and like I could let my kids enjoy themselves. I hope the apartment doesn't get too booked up over time because once you rent here you will never want to rent anywhere else!
