FOR THE MONTHS OF SEPTEMBER 2016 AND FEBRUARY 2017 WE ARE RUNNING A $150.00 PER NIGHT SPECIAL. FOR BOOKINGS PLEASE CONTACT US SO THAT WE CAN GIVE YOU THE MOST ACCURATE AND FAIR QUOTE.

3 bedrooms + den or optional 4th bedroom, 3 baths plus wet bar. Sleeps maximum 10 overnight quests this includes children of all ages.

If you want privacy, a traffic free beach, and the ultimate in luxury oceanfront living then the Kingston Tower Unit 201 is for you. This 2nd floor unit puts you at one with the surf while surrounding you with an elegant West Indies decor. Steps away enjoy the private, secure pool area with its coral pink pavers and a bubbling hot tub. Beyond the pool lies the white, sugary sands so popular in this South Daytona Beach area known as Daytona Beach Shores.

Offering 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, an oceanfront great room and an intracoastal bonus room which can easily convert to a 4th bedroom, this roomy condo includes over 2700 square feet of conditioned space and over 600 square feet of balconies. Enjoy the light and open feeling of this 'end ' unit wrapped in glass and ocean views. As the only short term rental unit in this intimate 14 unit building you will enjoy the ultimate in security and privacy for your stay, never having to fight for a space at the pool or endure crowded elevators.

The commons areas include the fitness room, which is equipped not only with the latest machines but also spectacular views of the pool and beach, which means you may work out while you watch the kids splash in the pool.

As the elevator whisks you from the secure underground parking area directly to the elegant, private foyer of unit 201 - note the carved crown moldings and the amber, crystal chandelier. Just past the foyer is a hand painted bar, which when opened offers wine glass storage and mirrored elegance for your private parties.

The sumptuous master bedroom offers a fireplace with stone columns and a 43 inch flat panel TV - both in view from the king sized Plantation Bed or the reading nook with its comfortable full size sofa. The luxury master bath is furnished with a large walk in shower, jetted tub, and his and her's granite topped vanities.

Two other guest suites offer King sized beds, each with a flickering fireplace with 43 inch flat panel TV's mounted above. One suite bath even has its own jetted tub, granite countertops and a hand held shower. There is no reason that these guests can't enjoy the luxurious accommodations and feel pampered by the fluffy bedding and pillow top mattresses.

The intracoastal bonus room provides one more large flat panel TV over a generous media cabinet, which can be viewed from two deep daybeds with piles of comfy pillows for lounging. This room also offers a wet bar with beverage fridge for instant cold drinks. At night the room can accommodate up to 4 guests on the real twin mattresses - no one has to endure the discomfort of a fold away. The room could also easily convert to a large king bedded suite, complete with wet bar/coffee bar for the lucky occupants of this 4th bedroom..

The oceanfront great room boasts a 52 inch flat panel TV, and a leather sectional with great views of the Atlantic Ocean. An adjacent reading nook provides a fireplace with built in bookshelves and comfortable seating. As in the rest of the condo exclusive art and accessories give the space the look and feel of a high end personal residence

The large kitchen is flanked by a formal dining area with a 'Bob Mackie' designer table and leather chairs that accommodates 6 comfortably. Casual dining for 4 is available in the nook and the long granite topped bar has swivel stools for additional casual dining.

The ocean side lanai is equipped with a dining table, chaise lounges and deep seating surrounding the outdoor fireplace, which like all the fireplaces in the unit can be operated with heat on chilly mornings or evenings, or without heat for ambiance any time of the year.

Enjoy wireless Internet or HD programming on the flat panel TVs Even though the building is a private and secure 14 units, it is only minutes away from grocery stores, shopping and some of the best restaurants on the coast. It is 15 minutes from the Daytona International Speedway and many fine golf courses are close by. The Kennedy Space Center, St. Augustine and Orlando Theme Parks are only an hour away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The condo is so beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment we were there. My aunt who stayed with us was looking at her calendar to see if she could stay there this summer with her family! We'd love to come back this summer. It was the most beautiful and peaceful beach condo we have ever stayed in!"

Please pass my thanks on to the other owners.

Great view from balcony and very spacious

  • 4 of 5

The view of the ocean from the back balcony was great. The unit is very spacious. We had 5 adults and 2 children. Liked that no one could drive on the beach in this area. We arrived at 11am and called to let them know that if the cleaning crew finished early to please let us know. We had been driving for 16 hours straight so we just wanted to see if it was a possibility. We were told that it there was a good possibility and that he would give us a call so we would know. We stayed within a short distance of the condo just in case. Hours went by until it was 3:00pm. We called to check on the progress. That's when we were told that it would probably be closer to 4pm before we could check in. That's the normal time anyway, so we just wish that we would have been told from the beginning that there was no possibility of an early check in. Upon checking in, we felt like we were bothering the lady from Kingston Towers condo. She was short with us and did not want to answer questions. She directed the questions to the guy that the owners have hired to show renters the condo. Unfortunately, he really could not answer a lot of the questions we asked. We had to figure quite a few things out on our own. The first night the smoke detector right outside mine and my husband's room started chirping. My husband had to get a chair to reach the detector and he took the battery out. It still chirped! He then unwired it from the ceiling and it still chirped. It eventually stopped. The next day we noticed several burnt out light bulbs throughout the unit. I found 2 spares, one of them was burnt out too. We saw a maintenance guy by the pool on Monday and told him the issues. He said he would check his inventory and let us know. We never heard from him again! One of the light bulbs that was out was in my bathroom. It was pretty dull in there so I would have liked to have been able to see when I was getting ready each day. We were told at the end of the week that the maintenance guy works for Kingston Towers NOT for this unit. Maybe he should have told us that from the beginning. One night the washer overflowed out into the hallway, unbeknownst to any of us. My daughter was walking through the hallway and slipped and fell because of the water. Thankfully, she did not get hurt very badly. The condo was NOT very clean at all. We expected it to be spotless considering we had to wait until 4 to check in. If you have no problems during your stay, the condo would be great.

Owner's Response: We apologize for these issues during your stay with us. Perhaps there was a miscommunication and you were not aware that issues with maintenance should been directed to me, so that I could have resolved them quickly. We discourage early check ins, in an effort to give the cleaning crew ample time to thoroughly clean this large four bedroom unit. The owners of the Kingston Tower strive very hard to make our vacationing guest feel very comfortable but sometimes minor issues happen out of everyone's control. Fortunately complaints such as yours about our beautiful condominium have been very rare. We do appreciate your feed back as it will help us make future guest more comfortable during their stay. Sincerely, The Owners of the Kingston Tower

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the KingstonTowers this year. The unit was very spacious and has every extra that you would need. It was decorated beautifully and all five of us loved the huge balcony with the wonderful views. We are looking forward to next year when we book this condo again.

This one won't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

If you've ever looked at pictures of rental properties online only to be disappointed to find something different when you arrived....THAT WON'T HAPPEN HERE! This place was exactly as pictured, actually even better than pictured. Beautifully decorated and clean. The view of the beach was amazing and we enjoyed the beautiful sunrises over the ocean. The building is in a more quiet setting, closer to residential homes and not surrounded by high rises. The condo was amazingly well stocked with everything you could possibly need and then some. Unfortunately the weather was a little cold for us to make use of all the beach toys and bikes, but we were very impressed with all the amenities and security of the building.

If you want to feel special on your vacation, this is the place! I'm really picky about rentals and this one was even better than i expected. I would not hesitate ONE IOTA to recommend to anyone!

Thanks for the wonderful vacation!

Huge quiet condo right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a huge modern condo with all the comforts of home right on the beach. The unit takes up half of the 2nd floor. We had 4 adults and 2 kids but could have slept 8 quite comfortably. From the secure underground parking garage you take the elevator to the landing accessible only by your unit (elevator has 2 doors, one for each side and your unique access code takes you to your floor and side only). The African themed décor may not be to everyone's taste but the furniture (and especially the beds) were very comfortable. It's in a very quiet and safe location on a non-drivable part of the beach. It has a huge wraparound balcony on the ocean side where you can watch the sea birds and dolphins. We happened to be there for a SpaceX launch on Cape Canaveral which we could watch from the balcony (just a flash of light going into the sky but was still pretty cool). There is a balcony on the river side but not much of a view from there due to being on the 2nd floor. Unfortunately the weather was not great while there so the kids never got a chance to try the unheated pool or spa but was clean and well kept. Only issues we had was 1) wifi which was good but went down for periods apparently because they were working on the lines in the area 2) water/ice maker on fridge needed cleaning, we usually buy drinking water when we are away so was not a huge issue. Did not need to talk to the manager for much but when we did was easy to reach and responsive. Having a car is recommended if you stay here as groceries/restaurants are not really within walking distance. I would recommend this to condo to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation (There are 14 units in the building and this is the only rental). If you are looking for party central, this would not be the place.

Beautiful condo but tough to get into

  • 4 of 5

First of all, from the quality of the condo, the beautiful decorations, spacious floor plan and overall comfort...this unit deserves a 5 star. The only reason for the 4 stars is the difficulty of checking into the place. The required paperwork was more than necessary but worst of all it was a requirement for every person staying in the unit to meet up with someone at the condo at the same time prior to checking in. Thus, my daughter and future son-in-law both had to take additional time off work so they could show up at the same time as my wife and I. Secondly, they charge a pretty steep cleaning fee yet leave a note on the refrigerator basically expecting us to wash and dry all dishes and wash and dry all towels; which we don't mind doing but don't ding me so much for the cleaning fee. So apart from the minor annoyances I would reiterate the condo is fantastic, located on a great section of the beach and offering stunning views. We would definitely stay here again but would understand in-advance the hurdles involved with checking in.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your kind comments about our condo, but are sorry to hear that you were inconvienced by the check in policy. This policy is beyond our control since these rules are governed by a condominium association. We are an exclusive condo in a small building which has no other unit that allow sort term rentals, and as such the condominum association requires a guest registration similar to what would be required at an exclusive resort. In answer to your frustration in loading the dish washer and dealing with wet towels, I can only answer, since we allow early, checks ins (4:00PM) and late check outs (10:00 AM) this leaves very little time for our cleaning crew to properly clean a huge condominum that has 7 beds, a large kitchen, outdoor grill and extensive balconies. The few things we ask the guest to do facilites the proper cleaning for the next guests. Again we are sorry for any inconvienice these rules may have cause you.
