This fully equipped, luxury three-bedroom, 10th floor condo, with spectacular views of the ocean and Inter-coastal (Halifax River), is situated on the quiet, "No Drive" portion of world-famous Daytona Beach.
There are very few condos in this area which offer breathtaking views of sunrises over the ocean AND spectacular sunsets over the Inter-coastal in the evening. This condo offers both. Rarely will you find so much beauty, all day long!
The condo is a corner unit (the reason for its spectacular views), in an eleven story, secured, 75 unit building. It has private, secured and designated parking for one car. Additional outside parking spaces are available.
The living room and master bedroom provide a 180 degree, breathtaking view of the beach, ocean and Sunglow Pier, as well as a spectacular view of the Intracoastal waterway and the ocean from the dining room and bedroom windows. Someone asked us our favorite place to go to "hang out and have cocktails." We had to answer "Pool-side while we grill our dinner...or on our back balcony, watching the sunset over the Halifax River!" Did you know that the sunset reflects a pink sky over the ocean as you face east? You rarely experience as much beauty as you will here...which is WHY we bought our "Home away from home!"...and why we LOVE to share it with like-minded guests!
We have completely remodeled the ENTIRE condo to add to the spaciousness and increase ocean views throughout the condo. Upon arrival, you will find all new appliances & cabinets, porcelain tiled flooring, exotic granite counter tops and tiled shower/tub surrounds. The master bathroom has extra-deep tub and shower with glass doors, removable shower head and double sinks. Guest bathrooms have walk-in showers with removable shower heads.
You will find everything and more that you need for a wonderful week's vacation and "home-away-from-home" experience in this 2,000 sq ft condo located in a most family-friendly, secured, building ...so pack lightly!
Walk out the front door of the building & play in the pool, walk the beach, lounge on the balcony patio while watching dolphins, surfers and the glistening waves...as well as pelican fly-bys!
Because this is our “home-away-from-home,” we furnish it as our home (because it is). Amenities include: All new appliances; Free, secure WiFi; Smart TVs with cable/premium channels in every bedroom and living room; In-condo super-sized washer & dryer; new bedding/linens and towels; a fully-stocked kitchen with Keurig and drip coffee makers, cooking utensils for even gourmet cooks, twelve piece settings of dishes, silverware and glassware, serving dishes, fry and pizza pans and pots, casserole and baking dishes, blender, crock pot, and spices.
We provide beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, cooler and beach towels for our guests’ enjoyment! We have done the work so you can keep it simple and relax! All we ask is that you enjoy your stay and treat our "Home-Away-from-Home" with the same TLC that we do! If you have questions, please feel free to get in touch with the owners, Cheryl and John.
