The first floor has a comfortable living room with a large flat screen TV and DVD player. Books providing information on Florida's history, natural resources, and outdoor activities can be found throughout the living room. WiFi is provided for our guests.

The dining area seats 6 adults. The built-in cabinet was part of the original 1920's building, and was refinished when the house was refurbished in 2011. Board games, cards, and DVDs are located in the beautiful dining room cabinet. A few children's books and coloring supplies are also provided.

The kitchen features updated cabinets and appliances. The kitchen is modestly equipped with cooking/baking necessities.

About Christy Gregg

I was born in Orlando, and spent much of my first year on Daytona Beach. Even though my family moved shortly after I turned 1, I have always loved Florida beaches.

I now live in Northern California with my husband Jamey. We love the Sierra Nevada mountains and the access to national forest. But for me, there was always a yearning to be near a beach.

Luckily, our youngest son had the opportunity to play several baseball tournaments in Florida. Those trips allowed me to introduce Jamey to the beautiful Florida beaches and the casual Florida lifestyle.

In addition to baseball, our love of motorcycling brought us to Daytona for several visits. Jamey and I are avid motorcyclists and in 2009, we made our first annual trek to Daytona for Bike Week. We were hooked, and we began our journey to find the prefect beach side home. Four years later, we found the perfect home for our family vacations.

Christy Gregg purchased this house in 2014

Why Christy Gregg chose Daytona Beach

Jamey and I knew the Barnacle House (nick named by the previous owner) was the perfect beach side vacation home for us. Just a few blocks from the boardwalk, one block north of Main Street, and one block east of Ocean Center and Peabody Auditorium, the house is in a great location. The building was originally a water house for the Halifax fire district, that was later converted to a residence. The house's exterior exudes 1920's charm, while the interior has been updated to include all the amenities of the 21st century.

What makes this house unique

The Barnacle House is the perfect vacation home for our family. The house features a fully fenced yard that provides privacy and security. The back yard accommodates an RV, with full hook-ups and easy drive through access. There is also an outside shower and large patio area.

Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic short stay here with our whole family! We have rented homes and condos thru VRBO/HomeAway for more than a decade. We have never had a bad experience, but one thing you do notice is that even the newest and finest homes kind of all feel the same. Lovely, but impersonal. Same stock décor for all mountain homes, all beach homes, etc. This home is unique in that you walk in and feel right at home and comfortable right away because it's very personal and inviting! Just beautiful, and beautifully stocked. Beds are SO comfortable, everything clean from top to bottom. Definitely our favorite house of all we've stayed in...wish we could carry it with us on ALL of our trips! Location is perfect. Yes, the neighborhood has rough edges (but NOT this house!) but many neighborhoods here in St. Augustine have come to look the same way. We all suffered great damage from 2 hurricanes in the past 2 years. Some homes will never recover and are transitioning, others are doing the best they can, and this takes time. We felt completely safe here! Many thanks to the owners for sharing their wonderful home with us and for being so prompt and kind with communication. Next year, hope to make another quick trip with the family here so that we can relax and enjoy another full day at the Daytona Lagoon!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 adults and 3 kids and we loved it. Very kid friendly, all the necessities available (except for a kettle to make formula).

The house is equipped with everything you need and even stuff you dont need but makes it so cool.

Great location, walking distance everywhere and very quiet neighborhood.

Only cons was that we didn't had hot water for 2 days but was fixed straight away when we mentioned it and the fact that there was no kettle. But that didn't make it any less perfect.

Also the communication with Christy was quick and sweet.

Thanks!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! I have modified our check list for arrival day to avoid any future issues with the hot water heater. I appreciate your recommendation for a kettle and we will be adding that to the kitchen shortly.

Best stay in a decade!

  • 5 of 5

I have to begin this review by saying that I’ve been attending an event on the same weekend in Daytona for the last 13 years. This is BY FAR, the best experience with lodging I have had in that entire time!

The house is fully furnished and clearly well-cared for with more ammentities and items than you could possibly need! The furniture is comfy and the rooms are adorable. We slept 10 consistently without any space concerns. Unlike a lot of properties, this is like walking into someone’s actual home and no detail went unnoticed. We had friends with a small child and there were ammenties for them as well including a high chair.

The owner has been amazing to work with, answering all questions and making the whole process easy for someone who hasn’t booked a lot with HomeAway before.

20/10 will be booking our next stay here if our staffing for the event and plans remain the same!!!

THANK YOU!
