The Bungalows at the Port Orange Condo apartments are located a mere three miles from the beach and less than twenty minutes from Daytona. They offer single-story living set in amongst the poplars and elm trees, creating a tranquil environment for you and your family to live in. There are a couple of small lakes to the southeast and woods to the west.
While the apartments might be set back from the main roads, you are very close to the intersection of South Nova Road and Dunlawton Avenue. All four corners of this intersection are covered with strip malls and other businesses.
The Bungalows are centrally located for trips with your dog to the beach and any one of the several green spaces to be found in and around the town. You and your dog will be welcome to run and play in most of them and they will give you a break from walking on the pavement.
You might think living here would put you in a bustling area where it isn't safe to take your dog for daily walks. However, being set back from South Nova Road on Eagle Lake Trail means being just far enough away from the traffic not to be overly affected by it. While Eagle Lake Trail might not have a sidewalk, there is one running along North Swallowtail Drive that you and your dog can use to walk over to the City Center Sports Fields & Complex.
Along with this, there is the road that leads to the FPL substation and offers a wide grassy area for you and your dog to use. While you should keep your dog on a leash, you could get away with an extendable leash to give them more room to run around and play. You can also take your walks in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The advantage to living in the bungalows is that you and your dog can use the wide grass berm to walk you to the nearest parks, which just happens to be those at the City Center Complex. There are sports fields for you and your pooch to play on, a large lake and paved pathway, and the Keith W. Parker Amphitheater where you and your family can catch any number of shows during the year.
Five minutes to the east are the beachside towns of Daytona Beach Shores and Wilbur-by-the-Sea. Go ahead and take your car right out onto the sand and park. From here, you and your dog can hike for as many miles as you can handle going either north or south. Go for a swim together in the warm waters of the Atlantic before you hike back to the car and head home for the day.
