This apartment was perfect for our Mommy Spring Break trip!! With four kiddos, we couldn't have been happier! Mike and Christina were more than gracious hosts! From meeting us at the car, helping us unload, and showing us around the place, they were nothing but hospitable. We were thankful the beach was so close and there were all the things we needed already there. We will keep this place in mind for future visits!
This apartment is exactly as described and shown. We were able to check in early (at 1pm) which was perfect so we could get a head start on our beach day. Christina was there to greet us and show us around. They had a sand bucket and shovel for each of the kids which was great, they used them both days. The backyard area feels like it's your own private space. They even brought a sprinkler out for the boys which they used both days after the beach. We all agree that we would use this rental again in the future with no hesitation. With kids and a low key beach experience it was perfect in every way. The boardwalk area with more excitement is only a ten min drive away. We wished we had another day here. Thanks so much for making our first AirBnb experience amazing!
Very accommodating family! The area was quiet (a little further out from downtown than I think we had realized!), and the De La Osa's worked with us. The apartment had plenty of room, a fully stocked kitchen and towels/toiletries.
Christina and Mike have a great set up to host on Airbnb. The small basement apartment has a full kitchen, one bedroom, and a living room. It has a separate entry so it felt very private and we could come and go as we pleased!
Christina and Mike were very welcoming! They were flexible on a time for us to arrive and even had some goodies in the refrigerator for us. They had menus of local restaurants set out for us and very clear emergency and checkout instructions. I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed with Mike and Christina 10 days during our 2015 winter holidays. The place was an excellent base for discovering central Florida and the east coast. For instance: Orlando's parks, the Kennedy Space Center and St. Agustín are less than 1 1/2 hours drive. The apartment is exactly what AirB&B accommodations are meant to be: the opposite of cold, lifeless and aseptic hotel rooms. The apartment (which is also the place where Mike and Christina's relatives dwell when they're in town) is totally independent from the family house despite being located just beneath it. The little garden with banana and palm trees where squirrels use to play all day is a lovely spot to relax or just look at while having breakfast in the kitchen. The house is conveniently equipped, and if you have any special needs you can easily discuss them with the owners since they live just on top (for instance: as we needed to wash our laundry, Christina promptly gave us directions to the next laudromat, and it took us less than an our to finish the job). The relationship with the De la Osa's was in any case the highlight of our visit: they are very friendly and open minded people and -without being intrusive- they made us feel at home from the very beginning. In addition they are perfectly bilingual, a feat that we very much appreciated being native Spanish speakers. To sum up, we very much recommend this place to anyone who want to explore the region while getting a taste about the life of a young American family. Muchas gracias Mike and Christina: We definitely shall be back!!!
I chose this listing based on the reviews I read and it did not disappoint. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and the space was accommodating. Plenty of room in a clean and bright environment. Most enjoyable was sitting in the backyard under the shade and relaxing in the adirondack. It was a short walk to the beach and a short drive to find a good place to eat. Christina was most helpful in providing recommendations. Our hosts were very quick to respond to all communication and made the whole experience easy and pleasant.
Christina and Mike were amazing! This was our first time booking with Airbnb and the De La Osas made it a dream. They were welcoming and accommodating. We actually felt like we were staying with old friends (they even brought us down homemade empanadas!). The apartment was perfect for our family of four. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was spacious. It had everything we needed.
We walked to the beach multiple times and were even able to borrow Christina and Mike's beach cart and boogie boards. The location is perfect, especially if you're looking for something a little quieter and less crowded than the typical Daytona Beach scene. With 2 children under the age of 8, this was ideal. We practically had the beach to ourselves!
We will for sure stay here again on our next trip to Daytona!
Home is a beautiful light green color with nice curb appeal located in a nice quiet neighborhood on Daytona Beach Island. Owners are very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Very close to beach and centrally located for easy trips to Orlando and many sight seeing venues. Separate private entrance through the backyard. Apartment is much larger and spacious than pictures and consists of two large rooms, and a shaded patio with large back yard. First large room has your living room, dining table, and kitchen. Second room has a bunk bed and two large beds, with bathroom. Plenty of drawer and closet space. Supplies from previous renters available if you forget anything. Pet friendly and ideal with large backyard. Owner has 3 friendly and well behaved pets of her own that you may see only briefly when they go out to the backyard for potty breaks. Overall a very nice place to stay and would definitely stay here again.
Christy was easy to communicate with and a doll in person. The little apartment was private and cozy. All the needed appliances were there, and she's kind enough to leave the condiments and spices from previous tenants, which is quite handy. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
CHRISTINA & MIKE - We're fabulous, wonderful, friendly, down to earth and just super people. Their apartment was very, very, very clean, spacious, and quiet. The apartment had everthing that you could possibly need. I felt right at home .The location was exactly where I wanted to stay. Christina & Mike made our stay enjoyable and memorable. I would rate our stay a - 10 - and give it - 5 - STARS. I could not have had better accommodations and would highly recommend staying here.I plan on returning next year - 2015 - and am looking forward to my stay there. - Scott - Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
