Year Purchased: 1999
About the Owner: Our family has enjoyed this condo now for 20 years! We are originally from Ohio, and after absorbing the beach life of this area, we decided to move to Florida. The beach life becomes addicting! We have lived in Florida now for 13 years, and we continue to enjoy the salt life and are thrilled to be able to share this property so others can visit and experience what we have grown to love!
The ocean provides such a relaxing atmosphere and this location is very peaceful yet close to lots of activities at easy access. The races! Biking! Festivals! Ocean activities! Lighthouses (Daytona Beach & St. Augustine)! All of these provide a life unlike that of the cold temperatures, snow and ice worries of the winters up north.
We hope you will come and visit and take with you a relaxing and memorable visit!
Why the Owner Chose Ormond-by-the-Sea, Ormond Beach, FL, USA:
We purchased this property when our son was attending Embry Riddle College in Daytona Beach. It served for him a home not far from the school and wonderful for us to come from Ohio to visit him. It's been a great vacation spot for us throughout the years. The 2nd floor view of the ocean right out on the porch is a feature that we just love. Watching the wind surfers , the beautiful birds, dolphins, the sun during the day, and the moon on the water at night still remains a favorite part of this place that we love.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our favorite feature of this property is to be able to sit in the living room and look out the ocean front windows and watch the sun rise and set! The moon on the water at night lends itself to peaceful and relaxing evenings after days that can be filled with sight seeing to Daytona hot spots, or beautiful St. Augustine (just 30 minutes away) that's home to an awesome lighthouse plus a city full of history, cultural museums, and events for children and grown ups alike.
The sea life here is very educational with sea turtle nests lining the beaches for observation and mantaees in the intracoastal and spring waters. Dolphins in the bay areas are a calming and exciting experience. One can eat delicious seafood at any of the many beachfront restaurants and enjoy watching dolphins from window or outside dining. Also wildlife preserves are prevalent with beautiful tropical birds and other wildlife native to this area. If you enjoy parks, ancient trees with their southern Great Oak flair, biking trails, and hiking trails, this area is great for that as well! Come and enjoy a little something for everyone!
