Overview

Daytona Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

Why stay in a condominium or hotel when you can have your own private beach house with pool and heated spa? This house, owned by author Julie Compton and her husband Rick, is located in Daytona Beach Shores, close enough (5 minutes) to the heart of Daytona to enjoy all of the attractions, yet far enough to escape the crowds. You can walk to the beach, a mere block and a half away, or drive your car right onto the sand if you prefer. A park with a playground, tennis court, and fitness trail is at the end of the street, and a block away on the river side is the perfect spot to watch the sunsets.

The house is close to everything the area has to offer: the beach, the river, a water park, Daytona Beach Pier, Daytona International Speedway, miniature golf, shopping, restaurants, turtle sanctuary, Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, and much more. For those who can't imagine Florida without Disney, the house is only a short drive (60-75 minutes) from Orlando and all of its numerous attractions: Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld, etc. The Kennedy Space Center is less than an hour away, and only 25 minutes away is Blue Springs State Park, where you can see the manatees.

The house itself is adorable, bright and clean. It has four bedrooms: three with queen beds, and one with a twin and pop-up trundle (which can be used as two twins, or put together to make a king). The fourth bedroom and second bath is in a separate building, perfect for a bit of extra privacy. The pool has a heated spa* and an outdoor shower - perfect to relax in after a day at the beach.

(*additional charges apply for pool heat, please inquire)

(Please Note: We do NOT advertise the house on Craigslist; if you see the house there, it is an unauthorized listing.)

About Julie Compton

Julie and Rick Compton are native Midwesterners, but since leaving the heartland they've lived in various spots along the East coast. Though for years they traveled to Florida for vacations, it wasn't until Rick accepted a job near Orlando that they became regular beachcombers. After a number of Saturdays at the beach where they bemoaned the drive home and wished they had a place nearer the ocean to call their own, they took the plunge and decided to buy a beach getaway. They bought the beach house in the spring of 2005, and Julie spent several months painting and decorating as the pool was built. The first rental was in the fall of that same year. As an author, Julie spends many days at the house writing, and the whole family uses the house for vacations throughout the year. They hope guests get as much enjoyment from being there as they do!

Julie Compton purchased this house in 2005

Why Julie Compton chose Daytona Beach

The house is a short drive from the Daytona International Speedway, for which -- in addition to the wide, soft sandy beaches -- Daytona is famous. It's conveniently located for vacationers who come for the Daytona 500 Race, or for the many bikers who arrive for Bike Week in the spring or Biketoberfest in the fall. Two blocks to the east is the beach; a block to the west is the river, with its magnificent sunsets. A few miles north of the house is the Daytona Pier and Main Street; a few miles south is the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and a turtle sanctuary. The numerous Orlando attractions are close enough for vacationers to visit on day trips. The Comptons chose to buy a house in Daytona because it is one of the closest beaches to their permanent home near Orlando, and they also have many wonderful memories of it from their college days, when they were 'spring breakers' themselves!

What makes this house unique

There's nothing like coming home from a day at the beach to your own private spot with pool and spa . . .

We had one fantastic week in this lovely beach house. Julie (the owner) is so helpful and nothing is too much trouble for her and her husband. We had a bottle of wine and some nibbles waiting for us when we arrived and we wanted for nothing. The house and pool are just gorgeous and it really is a home from home place. The beach is a couple of minutes away and is surrounded by eating places, shops and bars. Jack's Crab Shack on the pier is definitely worth a visit - it's casual and the food is really good and inexpensive. etc.We fell in love with Daytona from day one and will definitely go back there.

Holiday review

  • 5 of 5
We had the most fabulous holiday and the house was a true home from home. It was spotless and had every device you could ever need, from wi-fi to hairdryers to pool toys and beach towels !!!

We didn't need to use the water heater in the pool as it was always warm and the beach was fabulous and such a short walk away ! It was very comfortable with 8 people in the house and the bedroom by the pool provided privacy for any guests staying in there.

the pool itself was lovely and as it wasn't too deep provided a perfect training pool for the children. my 4 year old became a very confident swimmer by the time we left.

My son was most upset when we had to tell him we had to go and has asked me on many occasion when we would be going back !! We would highly recommend it and intend to go back again next year !!!

Thank you for making our 1st Ever Family vacation pretty spectacular. You made everything so easy and we had so much fun! The pool and hot tub were a hit with Rilee (9) and Aaron (19) and then with all the pool accessories, they had a blast! We all got some much needed sun and with the deck chairs and overhang, just being out of the wind and the sun pointed right at you, we spent many a morning just sitting there. Of course we took in some of the local establishments like mini golf, the beach, Ponce Inlet lighthouse (yes we did climb it, all 203 stairs), Daytona Raceway, Disneyworld, Florida Carriage Museum, Kennedy Space Center, many of the local stores and yesterday went to the Cape Canaveral Seashore to do some shelling and spotted a humpback whale and some dolphins! Score!! This was our first time renting a house and I was a little nervous but THANK YOU for be so kind and answering all my questions! The house was perfect and easy to get to and everything is so clean and kept up! We even used the pool when it was cold out thanks to the heater, I'm sure our neighbors thought we were crazy people from up north. The welcome package was very much appreciated and the wine delightful and enjoyed by Randy and myself. We will be back soon! My apologies for taking so long in getting this review out!

THE PERFECT BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Could not have asked for a more perfect beach house! Life's a Beach has EVERYTHING that one needs when on vacation. The house is comfortable, clean and just so "beachy". We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and its surrounding deck. Once my grandboys saw the pool they did not want to leave it! They were totally amused by all the little geckos that scampered all over the yard.

Julie was awesome to work with: answering emails promptly and even supplying drinks and snacks upon our arrival. After a long drive, the cold bottle of white wine was most appreciated!

The house was perfectly located for trips to the beach, restaurants, Ponce Inlet/lighthouse, and shopping. Even took the family over to SeaWorld for a great day trip.

I will certainly recommend Life's a Beach to other family and friends and hopefully return ourselves next summer.

Perfect spot! Comfortable, fun, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had THE BEST time at Life's a Beach. What a wonderful spot! Just a block from the beach in a quiet neighborhood, away from the clamor of Downtown Daytona, but close enough to still enjoy the restaurants, bars, putt putt, parks and more. The drive up the A1A is beautiful and the Lighthouse at Ponce Inlet is such a wonderful sight to see. Our whole family fit in the house comfortably. The beds are comfy and all the rooms are a great size. Not to mention, the pool, hot tub and grill are a fantastic bonus. The owners were so accommodating and helpful with all our needs. Definitely recommend Life's a Beach!
