I rent condos in Daytona Beach, Florida. It has been quite a learning experience for me, I have gained many skills from deciding to begin my own business. I will be heading to Daytona Beach on Friday, one of the perks is being able to come to town and work, and clean and stock my condos. I just happen to have a condo that did not rent for the Turkey Rod Run — so off I go.
My condos are at 3 resorts in Daytona Beach.
HAWAIIAN INN RESORT We started with a condo at the Hawaiian Inn Resort. Hawaiian Inn is one of those old throw back spots that was built as a hotel in the late 1960s and then was converted to condos in 1999. This makes for smaller type condos, but they are oceanfront with full kitchens and I have spent much time organizing to make the most of the smaller spaces. We chose murphy beds to give a living room feel during the daytime hours. These condos also have larger type balconies and full kitchens. These are great economical choices for couples of small families. These condos will sleep 4, but we prefer to avoid renting to 4 adults. I feel that the wear and tear is not worth it, and actually, the condo may feel a bit too cramed for 2 couples.
DAYTONA BEACH RESORT & CONFERENCE CENTER Funny — what started as an afternoon of cocktails ended up much differently than we had planned. After several drinks we ended up at Daytona Beach Resort & Conference Center and the renovation from hotel to condo hotel had just begun. We ended up writing a check for a down payment before leaving because we were so impressed with the resort. We also were fortunate enough to get an opportunity to purchase oceanfront in the tower at Daytona Beach Resort & Conference Center — which I believe has the best vantage point in the resort. These condos have 2 Queen beds – private oceanfront balcony and efficiency kitchens. Great for the business traveler, couple or small family. This condo will sleep 4 and is layed out in a way that would accomodate 2 couples.
OCEAN WALK RESORT Our Daytona 500 trip generally includes at least 8 and up to 16 family members, friends and strangglers that we have met along the way! When the hurricanes of 2004 occurred, the prices on Ocean Walk Resort condos declined to the point where 1 became affordable for us. It is a large condo -14th floor – and the bedding arrangement is perfect for sleeping large parties, with 4 full beds and 2 sleeper sofas – a larger extended family can easily be accommodate, or 2 familes traveling together would be comfortable in this condo! As I learned more about the condos in Ocean Walk I became particularly enamoured with the 01 condos. This floorplan offered 3 balconies, and had such a great set up for busy parents to have their own private “suite” that I kept my eye on future sales listings. My real estate agent happened to be watching the condos that came on the market and the highest condo at Ocean Walk with 3 balconies came on the market — I just had to see it and I fell in love with it on the spot !! So the highest condo at Ocean Walk with 3 balconies was added to our holdings. This condo is perfect for a family. The oceanfront suite is private and perfect for that special “couple” time while you are on vacation….
