Amazing and exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!! When we drove up I was a little hesitant as the house looked tiny but as soon as we walked in we were blown away by how big and spacious it really was!! Thank goodness we had great weather as we were able to enjoy the pool on many occasions! We were extremely sad to leave but brought back great memories! A million thank you's all the way from cold WI! :)

Daytona 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay. All the other reviews were correct. The house is much larger than it looks and was well kept. We enjoyed the pool

so much. A week at the beach was not long enough. We will definitely be going back next year. Thank you Dale & Janice for sharing your beautiful

home with us.

Much larger than it looks!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our trip staying Casa Playa over the July 4th week and what a wonderful property! The house is much bigger than the pictures display and was plenty of room for our family of four (2 adults, 2 children ages 8/4) and hosting nightly dinners for other relatives that were staying in The Daytona Beach area for the week at other properties. The pool area was perfect for our kids to relax in the afternoon after we wore them out at the beach, and provided a nice way to spend the afternoon in a bit of shade. Beach is less than a 3 minute drive, and close to many restaurants, grocery store, and the Oceanwalk district. Located on a very quiet street this property is perfect for any family visiting Daytona Beach! The owners Dale and Janice were very easy to work with and communicated entrance/exit instructions extremely well! Would book here again!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent about three weeks at the house. I don't have enough words to describe what a wonderful experience we had staying there. The house was absolutely perfect, frankly everything was perfect; the location, the pool, weather and working with Mr. Pennington.

If you are used to staying at a 4 Seasons or the Ritz, this may not be for you. However, the house is definitely a charming, comfortable and perfect older home. We could definitely call it home for the time we stay there.

Mr. Pennington was also wonderful to work, he was very attentive to our needs, fair and most importantly "honest" in all his dealings. I wish all humans could treat each other with as much respect, consideration, and integrity as he did with us.

In closing, if you are looking for a wonderful fine dining place, please go to Anna's Trattoria on Seabreeze. We spent $200,00 for six people to eat including tips, it may sound like a lot of money, but I promise you it was worth every penny. On the flip side, if you want to try a more chill place with a more upbeat vibe, try the Sandbar in Cocoa Beach, just remember the portions are huge there.

Family get away

  • 5 of 5

It was a Great place to be for my Mother's 81 Birthday! She picked the restaurant, Aunt Catfish, it was a big hit for everyone! My daughter, sister and 2 grand children loved the pool area! The house is much bigger than any of us thought it would be, being all women we loved the spacious kitchen and the counter is gorgeous! The location was wonderful for the beach park, restaurants. We even enjoyed evening walks to the beach and around the neighborhood, loved looking at the older mansions along the river. We even had a game night. Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Owner's Response: So happy you all had such a wonderful time, especially Mom! Glad you enjoyed the pool as well. Our family too loves game night with generations having fun all together.

Perfect location for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great two week family holiday at Dale and Janice's vacation home. I always do a lot of reading when booking a rental property and was very pleased that the listing description was accurate about all it had stated. In fact, I found much more than I expected. There was so much room for the adults and kids. Janice and Dale have done a lot to create a comfortable, clean and well equipped home. I appreciated the binder with all of the necessary information and suggestions re the local area - that was very helpful. As well, Dale was always quick to respond to any of my questions. The decor really added so much to the home - loved the historical touches (lots of photos from days gone by). The close proximity of the beach (great daily walk) and the privacy of the backyard pool were both great and quickly became part of our daily routine. The location of the home was perfect. We enjoyed the day in St. Augustine and had hoped to get to the Kennedy Space Center but ran out of time. Universal Studios was just over an hour away. Closer to home, Sugar Mill Park was an unexpected pleasure. The Antique stores, the chocolate factory (delicious) and some great shopping were all in the general area. Check out the Riptide Restaurant - good dinner.

I look forward to spending another holiday at Dale and Janice's. Thank you for all the extra effort! It shows how much you care to help make our holidays a positive experience.
