Palm House Condo is a beachfront condominium with a fabulous view of the sand and ocean. If you are an early riser, you can relax out on your balcony with a fresh cup of coffee and watch the colors in the sky change with the Florida summer sunrise. The only thing that could make the start of your day any better would be to take your dog for a walk on the beach at this time of day when very few people or cars are around.
Living here puts you close the shopping on E 3rd Avenue where there is a Publix grocery store to stock your fridge and pick up dog food and supplies for your pup. It’s only a couple of minutes to the north and, on your way, you should pass several restaurants. Along with all this, there are several large green spaces for you and your dog to make use of for your walks.
Living in a condo on the beach offers you a beautiful place to live with more than one type of terrain. However, it will also mean you have a lot of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic during the day, particularly during the summer months when the waves are at their best. If your dog is prone to misbehave or nervousness among crowds, you should consider taking your walks during the early morning hours.
Not only is it much cooler during these hours, which both of you will enjoy, but generally speaking, there aren't many cars or people around. During the day, the beach is open to vehicular traffic which can make it a dangerous place to take your dog for walks as not all of those driving there are paying attention to where they are going. This can lead to a high risk of an accident involving either you or your dog, ruining more than just your day.
Living on the beach means being next door to a very large green space where you and your dog can enjoy going for long walks in the early morning hours. The sandy dunes of the oceanfront will provide both of you with an excellent workout. If you prefer a more relaxing stroll, you can walk on the wet sand and in the surf. Be sure you take your dog out for a swim before you go home!
If you prefer to walk in the woods, it's only a fifteen-minute drive over to the mainland side and the entrance to the Spruce Creek Preserve where you and your pooch can enjoy over 1,600 acres of native Florida swampland. There are miles of trails for the two of you hike along including at least one that goes all the way to Rose Bay. This is a very popular place for hikers and dog walkers, so be prepared for company on the trails.
