Whether you love watercraft, fine dining, beachcombing, or shopping, you will find your passion at Harborside Village #5. Our townhouse condo is just steps from the Intracoastal Waterway, close to the beach, and across the street from European Village!<br/><br/>Pull right up into your reserved parking space just steps from the door of Harborside Village #5! This handsome two-story condo offers a Mediterranean look with whitewashed walls, pillars, and a comfortable second-floor balcony. <br/><br/>Step inside and relax in our open-plan living and dining area. Elegant yet comfortable couches encourage you to catch a game... or a movie on our LCD TV, while a reading chair allows that one person in the group who appreciates solitude to "get away from it all" without leaving the room! Our stylish tiled floors are nice and cool on those summer afternoons, and they make clean-up a snap!<br/><br/>Within easy reach of both the kitchen and the living area, our hexagonal dining table seats 6 perfectly (and makes a great game table, too!). Stools keep 4 more folks happy at the breakfast bar. And the cook is right in the heart of the action, with everything handy in our fully stocked, cozy kitchen. Plan to grocery shop only once on this trip -- our fridge and cupboards will hold all your goodies, and if you should run low, why then you'll just have to hop across the street and eat at one of the choice restaurants in the European Village!<br/><br/>Before going upstairs, take a peek at the master bedroom. This huge room contains a king-sized bed, TV, and a giant sink-into-comfort easy chair! Of course there is an en-suite bathroom, very roomy and offering a separate walk-in shower. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors lead out to our private patio, complete with table and chairs, grill, and all the balmy breezes you could ask for.<br/><br/>Upstairs, all is breezy and light with two more bedrooms and a bath and a half. Each of the bedrooms offers two double beds and plenty of extra floor space, just in case the kids need to do some serious Lego construction projects or lay out all the shells they've collected on the beach. <br/><br/>One of the bedrooms leads right out to a cozy balcony through sliding glass doors, and both bedrooms contain their own TV as well as an area to write postcards or set up the laptop and chat with everyone back home via Facebook. Harborside Village #5 has wireless Internet (free of charge, of course!).<br/><br/>Do you need space for 2 more friends to crash? Convert one of the couches into a sleeper, and everyone's snug for the night!<br/><br/>Now that you're all settled at our condo, it's time to get out and explore! First, take a quick dip in the pool. With plenty of seating and lounging, not to mention immaculate landscaping that shades part of the poolside during most hours, our community pool is a wonderful place to splash, read, or dream away a morning.<br/><br/>Next, put on your sneakers, grab your binoculars, and take a stroll through the nature preserve along the Intracoastal Waterway. This paved, tree-lined path is a cool and refreshing break from the heat, and you're certain to be amazed by the exotic waterfowl and other natural wonders along the way. The trail begins almost at our doorstep, and makes a great way to begin the day.<br/><br/>At Harborside Village #5, you're right in the heart of Florida vacationland. The beach is mere minutes away, as is historic St. Augustine. World-class shopping and dining await you at the European Village and nearby outlet malls. Orlando is just 83 miles away. But wherever your travels take you, count on coming home to your beautifully appointed, comfortable townhouse at Harborside Village for all the rest, relaxation, and fun you're looking for!Read more

The condo was in good condition and was very spacious for our 7 guests . When we arrived I found a dead cockroach in our master bath downstairs and there was a slight ant problem mainly on the kitchen counter . Overall I would rate this condo a 4 out of 5 . Location wasnt the best for the things we wanted to do its about a 10 min. Drive to the beach and a half hour from the Daytona area where we spent most of our time . I would still recommend this to anyone and would stay again myself .
Fyi. I had a couple of problems with the rental which I think you should be aware of to insure happier renters in the future. Instruction from I-295 states drive Eastbound on Palm Coast Parkway and turn right on Palm Harbor Drive. Good so far! Bullet b. states you will drive under the Palm Coast Parkway bridge. I did, and was way past the entrance to 100 Palm Harbor Parkway. The entrance is before you reach the the bridge.
Debbie S.'s review of Harbor Side Village 5 Luxury Condo in Palm

We stayed at harborside village for the month of March and had a wonderful vacation. The location of the villa was ideal for us as golfers (one within walking distance) and serveral others within a ten minute drive. The villa itself was very clean and quite fact this villa is ideal for families or couples that want privacy or space. The master bedroom is plenty big and located on the ground floor while the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms (both very large) are on the second floor with a huge bathroom in the center which has access from either room. The beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen was very well stocked (compared to countless other vacation rentals we have had). It was one of the few locations we found that allowed you to grill in your backyard...a definite for us. The only minor nusances were the fact that the backyard is accessed through the master bedroom and the TV in the living room is wall mounted on the stairwell wall and really only viewable by two people sitting on the loveseat (otherwise the view was obstructed by the staircase railing).
