The community of Cambridge Villas is a small family neighborhood sitting between Spruce Creek Road and the tributary creek that runs into Rose Bay. Along with the stream to the east, the area boasts a small lake of its own on the eastern end. The houses are upscale with smaller yards that are well-kept.
There are several advantages to living here, especially with direct access to both Taylor Road and South Nova Road. Both of these will take you to different sections of Dunlawton Avenue where you will find stores selling everything you and your family need, including a Walmart Supercenter where you can choose from a huge variety of items.
Dunlawton Avenue is also the direct route to the beach. I-95 is the main north-south highway offering a direct commute to the Cape, the Air Force Base, and all points south. You can also head north to Daytona, Palm Coast, and St. Augustine. In Daytona, I-95 connects with I-4 that even takes you to Orlando!
Within the bounds of the community, the streets all have sidewalks for you and your dog to walk along instead of being stuck walking on the roads. Like any family neighborhood, there will be a certain amount of traffic during the usual rush hours, but after this, it stays pretty quiet here. There is plenty of time for you and your dog to go for walkies!
Do keep in mind that, as a family neighborhood, there are likely to be kids of all ages playing and riding their bikes. This may be too much for some dogs and causes over excitement. The best way to handle this is to always use a short walking leash that lets you maintain full control at all times.
There is plenty of shade in the neighborhood, but not much of it along the sidewalks, so you might want to keep your walks to the early hours in the summer before it gets too hot.
From the end of the street, you can look out over the creek and into Rose Bay. You may even find some dry areas along the bank where you and your pup can go for walks! However, as this is a tidal area, you need to be careful where you step as all that you see might not be as solid as it looks.
However, you are less than a five-minute drive from the All Children's Park and the Seemore Memorial Dog Park. You can pack the whole family in the car with a picnic lunch and make a day of it! The park has a playground for the kids, a picnic pavilion, and a lot of room to play.
Next door, the dog park offers separate fenced-in areas for large and small breeds. Each area has a place for your dog to get fresh drinking water, an area to rinse the dogs off after playtime, and shady benches for you to relax on.
