About Patricia and Van Crowder
Hi, I am originally from Argentina, moved to USA in 1985, went to school at Georgetown University in Washington DC, have lived in Italy, Jamaica, Nicaragua and work in many countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. I love to travel, have a wonderful husband and daughter, and we love to spend our summers in "the condo". Enjoy surfing, golfing, tennis, eating out in many of the great restaurants, and of course we have to go to Disney every year. We bought the condo when we were living in Italy. We fell in love with the place, and it was our sense of home. We return every year and we miss it a lot when we are not there. It is wonderful.
Patricia and Van Crowder purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Patricia and Van Crowder chose Ponce Inlet
We decided to buy the blue prints back in 2002 when we were living in Italy. My in-laws had a condo in Daytona Shores and we loved the serenity of the place, its wide and long sandy beach, the people, it is a little bit like going back in time. Still unspoiled by malls or high condominiums and it is very environmentally conscious. the Marine Science Center at the Light House is wonderful and it is a great educational facility as well as the light house museum itself. In addition you can enjoy the Arts and Science Museum in Daytona.

We very much enjoyed our stay at your condo! The beds were very comfortable, and all the other necessities of home were available. The view of the river with the boats traveling on it was very relaxing to watch from the breezy deck. Also, the amenities of the development itself made our stay that much better!
Harbour Village A wonderful Place
Wonderful condo overlooking the inlet. Condo is spacious, clean and comfortable. Great amenities with the pools, golf, fitness rooms and restaurant. Best place ever to spend the winter
We just completed a month long stay at this condo with no regrets. The amenities kept us busy. The view from the top floor of the inter coastal waterway is lovely. Watching the boat traffic on the river was interesting. The condo was comfortable, with all the kitchen necessities you would need. We stayed at the condo during Hurricane Matthew. The building sustained no damage; thus it is well built. The beach club was a comfortable walk from the condo as was the private restaurant/pub. Food there was very good and well priced. Water aerobics is available. I did the aerobics with a group of women who were very welcoming and fun. We felt very secure at this property and the entire Harbour Village property. We are looking forward to staying here next year.
fantastic beautiful well appointed condo, lovely
We had the pleasure of wintering in this beautiful condo, so perfect with all the amenities, and very comfortable, impeccably maintained, and stocked with proper kitchen gear for our extended stay. The view is beautiful and unobstructed looking straight out over the river and when you lean to the right you catch the ocean view also. Beautiful sunsets that hallmark cards are written by. This condo is spacious and airy and perfect with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Great find owners are lovely also always on hand if needed.
Thanks so much for this wonderful review. Indeed we love Harbour Village and our condo is our refuge from daily life. All the best to you.
Lovely condo, tastefully decorated, pristine area
We rented this condo for the month of May to satisfy my longing to be back at the beach. I hated to leave. This condo is lovely, tastefully decorated, well maintained, and well equipped with everything a renter could possible need. Its pristine location on the fifth floor overlooking the Halifax River afforded privacy, security, and views of the Ponce Inlet lighthouse as well as the boats traversing the Halifax River. Its proximity to the traffic free and, at times, people free pristine beach was more than I could ask for. We were met by Alice who provided us with not only the keys and needed codes but a tour of the area and the amenities in the complex. It was so nice to have someone on site who could help us acclimate ourselves to the area as well as offer recommendations for restaurants and activities. We had one minor issue with one of the toilets, but this was immediately addressed.
We enjoyed the pool, the hot tub, the beach club, and the par three, nine hole golf course. The private Marina Club restaurant had the best pizza I have had since leaving New England. We loved many of the casual local restaurants including Inn at the Harbor, The North Turn, Boondocks, and Aunt's Catfish. The Cracked Egg was a great breakfast place, and Pat's Diner on the River, although a little quirky served exceptional French toast.
I can not say enough about the condo, the location, the amenities, the management, and the entire experience. I will say that the photos do not do the condo justice. I will also say that we requested that Alice show us some of the current listings in hopes that in the future this complex may be our future retirement home.
Thanks Linda, it was a pleasure to have you as guests, and thanks for the new pictures. I will try to upload soon. Kindest regards, Patricia
Harbour Village is a wonderful place!
We had an awesome vacation at your condo, everything was close by, restaurants, stores and Entertainment. The unit was very comfortable and very clean and well equipped in the kitchen. Also your responsible person was very nice and always available, we will rent again next year. Thanks again!

My favorite spots to eat include Down The Hatch, The Light House restaurant a couple of miles south down by the lighthouse, and Boondocks (outdoor dining on the river) and Aunt Catfish on the River. Excellent Italian food at Alfredo's Ristorante on Clyde Morris and across the street: Ritters' great frozen custer. At the Art Deco district of Daytona beach try the Avocado Kitchen for organic healthy breakfast and lunch. in New Smyrna Beach (you can take the ferry or drive for 20 minutes) try Garlic, excellent Italian food and great ambiance.
