Welcome to our Happy Place which is situated right inbetween the Atlantic Ocean and South Atlantic Avenue and located in the Harbour Beach Resort, a non-smoking building. Our studio apartment does not have a balcony and it does not have an ocean view but the World Famous Daytona Beach and Boardwalk, the Daytona Pier and Joe's CrabShack are all within walking distance of your room. Fill your Saturday in Daytona starting with the Downtown Farmers' Market just across the International Speedway Causeway at Jackie Robinson Memorial Ball Park, tour Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory. Run down Ridgewood to the All Aboard Flea and Farmers' Market, it takes about 45 minutes to run through it. The next stop is New Smyrna Beach and Breakers where you can park for free in the small lot attached to the restaurant, while you enjoy a burger and a cold one all the while people watching the Beach in front of you. Head back to north and stop at the Daytona Flea and Farmers' Market for the afternoon, and it will take you all afternoon plus. Stop at Aunt Catfish's on Dunlawton just before you go over the Causeway on your right or maybe barbecue or Korean is more to your taste tonight. Head north off Dunlawton on Ridgewood to Backyard Boys BBQ on your left or to SunBee Korean cuisine on your right. Hit the ISB Causeway to go back Home for a siesta then up to the Bandshell for a concert and fireworks show. Maybe a little snack and nightcap in one of the many restaurants located in the Ocean Walk Mall, then back to the Resort for a lesiurly dip in the pool, one of the prettiest and largest on the Beach, and hot tub under the stars. Just a suggestion...
Check in is 4pm and check out is 11am unless other arrangements have been made. Early check-in or late check-out is available for a fee and subject to availability. There is no check-in desk, simply take the elevator up to your room, enter your door entry code and relax because you are HOME. The most stressful thing to take care of until you check-out is to get your parking pass hung in your car. *******Parking is limited to 1 vehicle per rental unit. Due to limited parking, there is no trailer parking allowed onsite. There is an independently owned pay lot directly across the street from the resort. Please ask for details when you book if you require trailer parking*****************You will find your room 5-star clean and ready for your adventure to begin. We are celebrating two years here and are so proud of our little Gem by the Sea.

To the north on Atlantic Avenue or A1A you have The Daytona Pier and Boardwalk, a 10 minute walk, with countless places to eat and drink. Closer yet is Pizza Hut, just a short 2 block walk right out the front door of The Harbour Beach Resort. 2 new Hot Spots are Jimmy Buffet's LandShark and Cocina 214.
Turn west off A1A there and you are on International Speedway Blvd or ISB in 2 blocks you have the Gateway Restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Depending on the traffic, you are just a 10-15 minute drive to the Daytona Internalional Speedway, the Airport, Daytona State College and Volusia Mall.
Just over the ISB Causeway you will find Beach Street and the Riverfront Shops of Daytona Beach known as Historic Downtown Daytona Beach. There is also an Oriental Grocery on the ISB just past Beach Street about 1 mile from the Studio Condo.
We are just minutes away from all the Colleges and Universities here and offer you the perfect place to come and relax in a nice atmosphere and spend time with your student. We are a short drive to Phoenix East Aviation, a nationally accredited flight academy. We do offer up to 6 month rentals if you need.
To the south you have Adam's Egg and the Daytona Diner, both in just a couple of blocks for breakfast and lunch. Winn Dixie, Publix, a laundromat, IHOP and the new Waffle House are just a little further along with lots of local places to eat, drink or be merry, many of which close at 3 pm.

For the folks who like to check out the jewelry stores there is a Pearls International down there too.
A must see is Lighthouse Point Park south to the end of the spit. Spend the day, learn the history, visit the Veterans Memorial, check out the doggie beach or drop a line into the water. You are pretty much surrounded by water everywhere so you might as well see what you can catch.
To the south you have the Port Orange Causeway, commonly called the Dunlawton Bridge, that takes you into Port Orange or turn south on S Ridgewood Avenue and you are heading into New Smyrna Beach. Ridgewood is also known as US1 and takes you all the way to southern Florida and north to the mouth of the St Johns River and beyond. It is known by many other names along the way, most famously as the Dixie Highway.
Daytona Beach is an easy hour drive to Orlando and all it's attractions. Catch an Orlando Magic or Solar Bears game or a concert at the Amway Arena as well as everything Disney and Universal Studios has to offer. Jacksonville and St Augustine are less than an hour north or check out a space launch at Cape Canaveral just an hour to the south.
We don't have a balcony and the view looks West but for that we Offer Great prices for our beautiful place on the beach. Anyone who has been here before will really appreciate the sprucing up that we gave our little piece of heaven and will love and care for it like it was their own.
