Spacious room w/twin beds & private bath in single-family home 1/3 mile from beach & 1/4 mile from Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), in home of retired couple who are knowledgeable about the natural and cultural attractions of the Daytona Beach area. Kitchen and laundry privileges. Breakfast included. Large patio room in back, sitting area near room, free driveway parking. Two bicycles may be borrowed. Next to guest bedroom is an extra room with a futon, thus we can briefly accommodate a third person if they do not require privacy during the day. No smoking please, Dog OK if s/he can stay in and you will walk her (yard is not fenced).
Location is "beachside" on the barrier island between the Halifax River and the Atlantic, in a family neighborhood. Near Rockefeller's Casements and downtown Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach; about a mile south of State Route 40 and the Granada Bridge. Approx 1/3 mile to numerous restaurants & The Beach. This area is "The Birthplace of Speed" (i.e. cars) so renting a car makes sense if one plans to stay in the area for a while. Public transportation exists (buses) but it's not like New York City or Paris. We are approx. 5 miles from Speedway, airport, Tomoka State Park and other well-known Daytona & Ormond Beach attractions; plus we can advise about music, academia, film, history and nature. The major attractions are car- and motor-cycle related; while neither is our personal area of expertise, we have close connections to the local motorcycle club and classic car activities.
Jody speaks pretty good French.
Our style is informal. We are "old" sailboat cruisers, have traveled in Europe, enjoy international visitors.
