I write mostly about Daytona Beach Shores, where I live. However, there are quite a few condos in the town next to Daytona Beach Shores going south.
It is Ponce Inlet, and because both Atlantic Ave. and Peninsula Drive end at the entrance to the Lighthouse Park and do not go south, this is the quietest place in theh the whole Daytona Beach area, with not a single hotel/motel and only a few businesses like marinas and waterfront resaurants on the Intracoastal.
Trully a quiet residential area, and the best beaches in the area.
Southpoint Condominiums, a 7-story condominium in Ponce Inlet, was built in 1985.
There is no underground garage, so common for condo buildings in the area, and cars are all on ground level, under the building, and you can see the ocean from the parking.
There are 75 units total, 73 two-bedroom/2 bath units with 885 sq.ft. of living plus oceanfront balcony, and two units are three-bedroom/ three bath units at 1,346 sq. ft.
All units are direct oceanfront.
Southpoint Condominiums is on a non-driving stretch of the beach. With one-week minimum rental, it has the most liberal rental policy in Ponce Inlet.
Amenities include outdoor heated pool and deck, covered parking, BBQ grills.
Pets up to 40 pounds are OK. Maintenance is $500 a month. Check the list of units for sale and units sold in 2012. Note that inventory is very low, and it reflects on the asking prices, which are higher than what units have been selling for in Southpoint even recently.
