About Petra & Randy
Guten Tag! My name is Petra and I am a native German from Hamburg living in sunny central Florida. I have been married to my husband Randy, for 27 years and we have one terrific son and two cats. Orlando has been our home for the past 14 years and our son is attending college at the University of Central Florida. Retired from an Air Force life, we enjoy entertaining with friends, dining, attending movies & classic rock concerts, cruises, scuba diving, and world travel. Having visited over 100 countries now, some of our favorite destinations have been the Maldives, Africa, Greece, Iceland, and Hawaii. We have seen so many places and stayed in a variety of ways; for instance Ritz Carlton, safari clubs, tents, cabins, and VRBO rentals. In the near future, we hope to return to Africa, Iceland, and Hawaii and explore new destinations like Galapagos, Alaska, Tahiti, Fiji, Palau, Australia and New Zealand. So many places, so little time......... As an employee of the Ritz Carlton, Orlando, I know what above and beyond means for customer experience. It is my intention to host our rental with that same attention to detail to make your stay that much more enjoyable. Our first "Home Away From Home" here at Daytona Beach Shores is a warm place to relax. We hope you thoroughly enjoy your stay! Our life motto is to not sweat the small stuff.
Petra & Randy purchased this Studio in 2018
Why Petra & Randy chose Daytona Beach
-The 6-mile stretch of Daytona Beach Shores presents a more laid-back vibe yet has plenty of things to do and places to relax. This welcoming community offers golf, mini-golf, tennis, shopping and much more. Just a short walk on the beach from the condo brings you to Sunglow Pier where you could go fishing or chill at Crabby Joe's restaurant; a good place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. -Directly across the street (A1A), you will discover one of the largest beach stores where you can find beach toys, cool beach attire, and famous Florida souvenirs. Also across A1A, you will find a CVS pharmacy, a Starbucks, a local ice cream shop, a walk-in clinic, a 7-11, and an 18-hole miniature golf course. Just minutes down the road you will find an ABC Fine Wine & Spirits and Publix grocery store. Eating establishments within walking distance from Pirates Cove include Our Deck Down Under, DJs Deck, Crabby Joe's, and Genovese's Italian Cafe. Other local establishments include Bruno's Pizzeria, Pat's Riverfront Cafe, Beach Bagel Cafe, Senor Taco and the not to be missed "Cracked Egg". -South of the Shores is our hidden neighborhood treasure, the Historical Ponce Inlet community boasting the tallest lighthouse in America and more exciting water recreation opportunities. Ponce Inlet also has that small-town vibe with lots to do and is considered to be Daytona's top spot for surfing. Take a guided boat tour, charter a fishing boat or spend the day relaxing at Winterhaven Park, complete with beach access and stunning views. You don't want to miss out on the fresh catch of the day so go visit Off the Hook, Hidden Treasures, or Down the Hatch. -Located west of the Shores is Port Orange, home to parks, golf courses, and entertainment centers. Spend a day at The Pavilion, a retail center full of restaurants and shops or walk around the Sugar Mill Botanical Gardens and Plantation.
What makes this Studio unique
Can't stress it enough. The beach is just yards from the studio and the balcony overlooking the shoreline is simply tranquil. Pirates Cove is one of a kind. A previous hotel that has been well maintained and now converted to studios, one and 2 bedroom condos, the amenities of the building include access to one of the largest oceanfront pools of Daytona along with a small kiddie pool. Beach access is a snap walking through the private gate located at the pool common grounds. Also available is a fitness center, laundry facilities, and the staffed lobby area has a soda vending machine, luggage carts, and bags of ice for purchase. FREE parking for registered guests is located in three convenient lots offering 24/7 monitored security cameras (one parking lot in front of the building, one in back of the building, and one across the street).

what else can I say except that this place is perfect! Closer to the Beach is not possible, very clean, made my Weekend in Daytona a 5 star Weekend !!!
Fabio is a very clean, organized, and friendly guest. I also enjoyed our talks. A very kind and an experienced traveler! Totally recommend to other hosts.
Daytona Speedweek 2019 Exciting and relaxing at the same time! Wonderful experience!
My significant other and I traveled from Wisconsin to Daytona Beach for the Daytona International Speedway races. This condo was immaculate! The amenities and the hospitality we received from Randy and Petra exceeded our expectations. We arrived on Valentines Day after a 20 hour drive. Everything went so smooth. The beach was wonderful. Truly they provide everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. We would love to go back next year. Created some wonderful memories. Loved this space, it was perfect.

Glad you had a great visit. You probably need a vacation after your speed-week vacation. Hope to see you again. Thanks for the kind review.
Awesome Home away from Home
Wow, its one great word to explain the condo. The location is excellent and right on the corner. As we pulled up to this unassuming Pirates Cove, we didn't know what to expect. We took the elevator up to the condo and walked in. It was everything that we expected and more. The pictures don't do it justice. We loved that the beach is right there, steps away, we loved that we could wake up and sit on the balcony and watch the sun rise, we loved that we could people watch in the evening (lol). There wasn't anything during our stay that we wished for inside the condo. We cooked all our meals in the condo. There is a Publix, just down the street and we shopped there for fresh meats and seafood. The bathroom was spotless, clean, & new! Our only wish, a grill, even a public grill in the pool area would be cool.
We will be visiting this condo again when we plan another quick trip to the Dayton area.
Petra is the best host, she texted everyday to make sure our stay was going well and even offered up local attractions. She visited us the last day to send us on our way with some good cake. Yum!
Thank you for the wonderful review. You guys are 10 star guests! Any VRBO hosts reading this will not be disspointed having Andy as a guest.
Perfect beach getaway!
This condo is the perfect location on a beautiful beach! The view is gorgeous and the room is too. We will definitely be back!
Was great. Everything looked just like the pictures. Would definitely return.
The property was good. The condo looked just like the pictures. They had everything we needed for our stay and more.
Great get a way for a few days
We had a great time. The room was clean and organized well. We were specifically impressed with the quality of items in the room such as linens and kitchen items. They were not just what was leftover from something you didn’t use anymore. We didn’t use any of the facilities there, ie beach or pool because of visiting with family down the road but areas looked nice.
