Van Lee Condo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2-6 2 Br /2 Bath DIRECT Oceanft spectacular NEW Luxe 9th fl condo/LOFT


We have recently completed a year long construction process of this amazing 9th floor direct oceanfront condo loft in the quaint and beautiful coastal town of Ormond by the Sea. This property will take your breath away from the moment you walk in the door. We promise not to clutter your world with dusty fake plastic flowers but rather give you the rare gift of simplicity and luxe.

We are direct full facing oceanfront with floor to ceiling sweeping panoramic Ocean views from both the great room AND the master bedroom!

Everything is brand new. Your very first impression will be that you have stepped aboard a luxury ocean liner as the floor to ceiling water views will command your attention drawing you immediately to the balcony!

Once you have taken a moment to soak in your views, You will be treated to a full gourmet kitchen complete with every culinary detail and delicious thick slabs of natural stone.

Living areas are bathed in luxurious leather seating and a 55' wall mounted flat screen high definition TV.

The master bedroom has a king sized high end top of the line orthopedic mattress and personal sitting area to enjoy morning coffee while overlooking the majestic sunrise at daybreak. There is a 50' wall mounted flat screen for master bedroom viewing pleasure and walk in closet and dressing area designed by California closets. The spa like master bath offers a large walk in shower complete with in shower seating.

Next find your way to the 'surprise' in the 2nd bedroom! Our surprise for you will delight everyone of all ages! Your 2nd bedroom has one full sized bed and one twin (which can easily be moved together for a 'super king' if desired) and 40' flat screen wall mounted TV. (2nd bedroom sleeps 3 comfortably). There is a full guest bathroom accessible from both the main living areas and 2nd bedroom.

Japanese Shoji doors illuminate a soft glow at night.

Daytona is only about 5 minutes away but you escape the crowds and congestion etc. There are fabulous farmers markets in the town square that have wonderful fresh produce this time of year and we usually stock up on oranges and grapefruit and make fresh juice using the juicer (in the kitchen island drawer). There is a new Publix grocery store within walking distance and also a small homemade doughnut shop that makes the BEST doughnuts! - but you have to get there early for a good selection as the locals grab them up 😉! There are also numerous nationally recognized Art festivals that are so fun to stroll through.. St. Augustine is only about 35-40 minutes away, Kennedy Space center is a great excursion, and Orlando/ Disney etc is about 60 minutes. It is very popular with many of our couples or families make day trips to the Disney/Universal theme parks and then come home to sleep with the waves and enjoy the beach in between a day trip. It is a wonderful option because you can enjoy the parks and the beach during the same week!

Our beach and large oceanfront salt water pool is a magnificent private beach accessed only through our building. We are 100% non smoking and no pet property. (We love pets but are unable to accommodate them at this property).

There is so much more this property offers such as washer and dryer, all linens and towels, free wifi, etc etc! A high end air mattress is available upon request for additional living area sleeping if desired.

Our goal is to make this property so enjoyable and relaxing that you never want to leave! Thank you for choosing Sea Loft 905!!

About Susan and Dave

As an artist I immediately knew 'this was it'. We had stayed in enough places that cluttered your world with all the owners 'leftovers' and 'the view' consisted of standing on your toes to see across the road or dunes etc.. Instead, we determined to create an environment that would immediately erase all life's stresses from the moment you step inside the door. Whether it is a couple on a romantic getaway, a family with children, business travel etc, our goal is that we create an environment and atmosphere you never want to leave.

Why Susan and Dave chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

Having traveled extensively both throughout the US and abroad we visited the Ormond Beach area and recognized this was a very special place. Ormond by the Sea is quiet and quaint with a multitude of boutiques, restaurants and other adventures within walking or biking distance. The unobstructed floor to ceiling ocean vista is unequaled and our property is situated directly on an uncrowded private no drive beach with no roads to cross or long walkways to reach your destination. You step outside the door and seconds later your toes are in the water!

What makes this condo unique

Also enjoy a very large GORGEOUS Ocean front salt water pool! So many many wonderful restaurants and attractions nearby, everything from the theme parks in Orlando, to the Kennedy Space center, award winning state parks, walk along with the manatees (ASK US!!), Have you ever tried making your own pancakes inside a 200 year old Sugar Mill? SO many wonderful things to do, see, and enjoy, but you will have a hard time tearing yourself away the balcony and serenity of the property and views!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a property. We could not have chosen a more beautiful condo to stay in. The decor was modern and looked great, and the simply doesn't get any better. Daytona is a short drive away, so you're not in a downtown, tourist trap area, but you're 10

minutes from it. The owners were nothing short of superb as far as recommendations and making sure our every need was met or questions answered. The pool area is amazing and the beach is nice and quiet. If you're looking for an amazing property without the commercialization, then this place is for you. Simply beautiful.

Amazing condo, great view.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was more beautiful in person than in pictures. The owner was very friendly and

helpful and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed including menus for

local restaurants. The condo is so close to the ocean that you feel that you are on a cruise ship.

The condo was very clean and had everything we needed including beach towels , chairs, beach

toys and even a kite. We had an amazing time and can't wait to go back soon.

I would strongly recommend this condo to my friends and family. We had a wonderful experience.

Absolutely AMAZING Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I just want to begin by saying Sealoft 905 provided my family with the BEST vacation we’ve ever had...thanks to Susan and Dave. From the moment I booked back in March, I have been in awe of Susan's attentiveness for every detail of our (my family of 4 + in-laws) trip. I could not have asked for better communication over the past few months. Having stayed in Daytona for 30+ years, I was in love with the relaxed atmosphere of Ormond. The building was well maintained with an on-site property manager that I saw many times monitoring the area. There was a Publix and small shopping strip only a couple of blocks from the building. The condo itself was absolutely gorgeous from the time I opened the door. As lovely as the pictures were online, it was even more beautiful in person. As soon as I came home, I wanted to re-decorate my whole house! Who's ever even heard of "floating beds???" The decor was top notch with so many unique details! The kitchen (oh my...that beautiful farmhouse sink), bathrooms, and laundry room were all well-equipped, lacking nothing. Boogie boards, skim boards, beach toys, kites, umbrellas, and beach chairs were all available in the private laundry room. After arriving and getting settled in, Susan texted to ensure everything was perfect...which it was. She and her husband provided my family with many recommendations and invaluable (local) information for our trip. Favorite Restaurants: Hull's, Lulu's, Crabby Joes, Aunt Catfish, Charlie Horse, and Starvo Pizza. If I were Susan and Dave, I would have to live there full time :) ! Again, thank you for allowing my family to share in your Ormond Beach Jewel! I hope to have the opportunity to come back! I would highly recommend this property for the most relaxing of all vacations!

A WOW vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this condo was one of the best times we have had on a vacation. Not only was it *stunning*!! inside but the VIEW!! Oh my goodness!!! This beach is private, uncrowded and the very large awesome pool is right there on the beach so you can enjoy watching the ocean while swimming or relaxing at the pool! We woke up every morning and watched the sunrise from our bed and then enjoyed coffee on the balcony before breakfast at Alfies and Peach Valley cafe :) There is a grocery store walking distance and the condo owners were SO very helpful to tell us about all the restaurants and local things going on around the area. We especially enjoyed the old Spanish sugar mill pancake restaurant making our own pancakes at our table and took the wildlife cruise!! My husband did some scuba diving in the underground springs and said it was fascinating.

Our very favorite time however was spent sitting on the balcony together enjoying the incredibly beautiful view of the ocean right in front of us. I wish I could post a picture here of just how serene and beautiful it was. Thanks so much for this place! We can't wait until next year to come back!

Absolute Bliss!! Best rental experience we have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

This condo goes far beyond the incredible pictures and descriptions noted. It truly is the best experience in vacation rentals we have ever had. The private beach and pool was magnificent and even though it was peak season when we traveled the beach and pool were never crowded. The condo is designed with high end luxury and comfort and was immaculate. We wanted to go home and completely redecorate taking inspiration from this beautiful rental!! The owners we cannot emphasize enough were truly interested in making sure our stay was filled with everything we love and went out of their way to give us excellent information about restaurants and so many other things. We took many of their suggestions and it all came together for an incredibly wonderful stay!!!! Our only complaint was that it wasn't nearly long enough. We have already reserved a 16 day stay in the fall here and cannot wait to return! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us Susan and Dave! See you again in the Fall!
