Sea Dip Resort is a 134-unit oceanfront condo-hotel with city or ocean views. It is a half-mile south of International Speedway Blvd. Outside corridor system.
Two pools, one outdoor and one indoor. Rentals in the resort are managed by Condo Owners Association, no outside management company. Was the first condo-hotel in the area to undergo a major concrete restoration work back at the very end of the 90s. By that time it cost over $7K and thought to be an outrageous amount. In 2018 they are doing concrete restoratin again.
Other resort amenities include laundry facilities, private kitchenettes available in most rooms, shuffleboard, and a variety of enjoyable beach activities catered to everyone’s needs. There is also a clean outdoor grilling area with 4 large charcoal grills right next to the pool.
The resort was converted into a condo-hotel by John Rainey, and this was one of his earlier projects. In the early 2000s, the resort has done concrete restoration, the first concrete restoration in all condo-hotels. It took a long time and a lot of money through the Special Assessment, but since then every concrete restoration in any other condo-hotel proved to be significantly more expensive.
Sea Dip is popular among those owners, who live not far and who use it themselves a lot on weekends. You can rent it yourself, or have Front Desk do it for you. Office is open from 8 AM to 11 PM.
While you are there, do not miss the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. If you have never seen a lighthouse in person before… it is worth exploring this 2nd tallest lighthouse in the nation. It is still in opoeration. Its about 10-15 minutes from the Seadip going south. You will pass the Daytona Beach Shores Sunglow Pier with a full service resturant called “Crabby Joe’s”. Good food, great prices, casual attire, and a very unique dining experience! The Main St. Pier is north from the Sea Dip about a mile and a half. It’s a must see! And take a half-day or a day trip up the coastline toward St. Augustine – the oldest city in the US!
