Lovely home near everything and only a 10 minute walk to the ocean. A nice quiet location and the home is nicely decorated with super comfy beds and it is so much larger inside than expected. Owners were great to work with - highly recommend!

This home was the perfect vacation for our family. Don't let the picture fool you. This home is way larger than it looks. We never felt we were on top of each other. The best part is the Ocean is just down the street. The Daytona Beach Boardwalk is approximately two miles, and you can actually walk the beach to get there, if you enjoy walking. The weather was absolutely beautiful the entire week!!!!! There is shopping, grocery stores, etc. right around the corner. It's located in a neighborhood, and we actually talked to several who lived there, on our walk to the Beach. Great neighborhood!!!!

We took a day and drove to St. Augustine, because it's only about 45 minutes. Dale Pennington was absolutely wonderful to work with!!! He called the first day to make sure everything was up to our expectations, and asked did we need anything. I can't say enough about this beautiful home, as well as the owners. We definitely hope to get back down there next year. If you're looking for a place to stay in the Daytona area, this is the place! I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

Quaint home with great space but disappointed in pool area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Del Playa. The house is quaint and comfortable with plenty of room! We especially enjoyed the pictures of the early days in Daytona Beach as it truly added to the authenticity of your home. Kitchen is well stocked so we could cook whatever we wanted. Appreciated having a washer-dryer available. Great proximity to beach!

Our biggest disappointment was the pool area. We were not told that the pool lanai had evidently come down during the hurricane and so it is no longer enclosed. The pool had leaves and sticks in it constantly except for the one hour after weekly cleaning. We were annoyed by the bugs, dirt and debris around and in the the pool. You need to be upfront with guests about the facilities and reflect the actual property on the website. We were surprised that the spa/hot tub was not heated. Understandable that you wouldn't heat pool but having just spa heated would greatly improve the usage.

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! :)

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!
