This was our first Florida beach vacation. We stayed for a week with our 3 children ages 20, 17 & 9. I was concerned that there would be enough to keep the kids busy, especially with their varied ages.This condo is in a great location, convenient to a Publix store that has most everything you may need, as well as restaurants and gift shops. A miniature golf place is close, as well as the Ocean Walk with shopping, restaurants & a cinema. Right across the street is an ice cream shop with a video game arcade! But we found plenty to do at Peck Plaza. The swimming pool and hot tub are pristine! We watched the man clean them early every morning from our balcony! The beach was great. We saw other guests and residents but it was never crowded, plenty of room to swim. They have plenty of umbrella tables and lounge chairs on the pool and sun decks. Also 2 outdoor showers on these decks. We also enjoyed shuffle board and billiards. The tennis and basketball courts looked very well maintained. The actual apartment was VERY clean. We had 2 huge bedrooms and 2 full baths. Our girls shared the bedroom and our son slept on the sofa. The furnishings were very clean & well-maintained. All linens and plenty of towels provided. The kitchen had everything we needed, microwave, stove, large fridge/freezer, even a dishwasher! The unit has a washer and dryer that was very convenient. TV's in bedroom and master bedroom are small but adequate and a VCR & DVD player are available in the living-room. We watched DVDs some evenings and all worked well. The views are stunning, from both bedrooms and the balcony. The beach was beautiful for lounging or strolling. We saw people surfing, boogie boarding & fishing right down the beach from us. We would definitely recommend this rental and Daytona Beach Shores to anyone looking for a fun oceanfront vacation stay!

We loved the condo, and the views, but would be helpfull to have more instructions concerning getting into the building, we had a key ring with several keys and werent sure which one went to the main door, and then it wasnt a key it was a bar on the keychain, we just happened to get to the door at the same time another resident did so we saw how to open the door. Should have had a key to the fitness room but didn't. Other than those minor things we loved our stay, and would stay again
