Sea Woods villa description

SPECIAL LOW PRICES FOR SUMMER ($1,200/MONTH) & FALL ($1,000/MONTH)

Welcome to our private & secluded little paradise by the beach! Our beach villa ('Oak Villa') is located in the very popular and unique ocean side community of Sea Woods in the resort town of New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Experience a world class ocean-side vacation without paying resort prices! Walk in your flip flops along the beautiful oak-covered paths to the beautiful beach and surf just steps away.

Sea Woods is known throughout the area for its unique and abundant natural appeal, where the developers first hired the landscape architect before anyone else. It boasts over 50 acres of beautiful, lush, native trees and vegetation with nature trails throughout.

Sea Woods - a Resort Community:

3 Swimming Pools (1 heated)
Whirlpool
4 Lighted Tennis Courts
2 Club Houses, available for events or parties
Fitness Center with cardio equipment and free weights area
2 Saunas
2 Racquetball Courts
Shuffle Board Court
Jogging / roller-blading / bicycle paths throughout

Oak Villa, located at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac, is surrounded by lush oak and palm trees, making for a wonderful tropical jungle-like feeling where you can listen to the birds and the sounds of nature, including at times even the waves down on the beach.

The Villa:

Master bedroom with a nice king size bed and en-suite bathroom that has been remodeled with a beautiful double shower in travertine;
2nd bedroom with a queen size bed also with en-suite bathroom that is shared by guests;
An open den-room containing a bunk-bed that sleeps 2 (perfect for the kids);
Villa sleeps 6, and one of the leather couches also pulls out into a double bed;
Beautiful enclosed Florida-room with glass walls, bringing the lush outside into the living room.
We are constantly upgrading and remodeling the villa. We have recently (Sept '13) replaced all new berber carpeting throughout (where not tiled), replaced all exterior doors, repainted, and many other upgrades. Most of the appliances have also been replaced.

Fully furnished and functional, with all the conveniences that you would expect, including full kitchen, washer and dryer, TV and entertainment system, FREE INTERNET, linens and bath towels. Very private, lush backyard with patio area and BBQ. The landscaping was completed redone in Sept '13, with new rail-tie retainer walls, new backyard space, different areas to relax and sit out and enjoy the nature, and even a private nature trail that will make you feel like you are living in your own private native jungle. :)

Activities & Attractions in the Area:

The Sea Woods resort community, the town of New Smyrna Beach, and the greater area offers far too many activities, attractions and adventures to list. But here are just a few of our favourites:

Wonderful beaches for swimming, surfing, fishing, walking and driving your car on (only in certain close-by areas - the beach in the Sea Woods area is no-drive, which is a good thing).

Miles of back country wilderness and secluded estuaries awaits you in the Indian River Intracoastal Waterway System where you can kayak or boat and experience world-class fishing (it is known as the red-fish capital of the world), go bird-watching or simply enjoy being on the water. See dolphin and manatee up close.

Golfing and Tennis - in addition to playing tennis on 1 of the 4 lighted courts at Sea Woods, just steps away from the villa, you will find 7 great golf courses in the immediate New Smyrna Beach area.

Pamper yourself at one of the many Day Health Spas in the area, where you can spoil yourself to massages, facials, manicures and pedicures and more. Arts & Culture is a very strong feature of New Smyrna Beach. The city consistently ranks among the finest in books like 'The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America: Where to Discover Creative Communities, Fresh Air and Affordable Living' by John Villani.

Then there are river cruises, take the water taxi to Ponce Inlet where you can climb the historic light house, go for day hikes or explore one of the many parks in the area. The Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000 acre national park nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, is one of the longest stretches of pristine coastline in the US, and is just south of New Smyrna Beach, literally on your doorstep.

A little known fact is that New Smyrna Beach holds the distinction of being the 2nd oldest city in North America, though some historians believe it to be older than St. Augustine (which is just a couple hours north). Learn all about it at the New Smyrna Museum of History.

                        My husband and I stayed a month at Oak Villa and really loved it. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed listening to the surf each night and all the beautiful landscaping. It was fully equipped with everything you would ever need. Close to everything! We would definitely stay there again. The owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with.

                        My husband and I discovered New Smyrna 2 years ago and fell in love with the area. This year was our first time staying at Oak Villa but we really enjoyed it. The villa is clean and well maintained and very tastefully decorated. The property is very private and perfect for hosting a barbecue. It was the best of both worlds. You can hear the ocean and are just a short walk across the street, but you have plenty of shade at the villa - something I need as I am not into sitting in the hot sun day in and out. We enjoyed listening to the birds and most nights even had a visit from a raccoon as we watched him navigate the beautifully landscaped yard. We named him "Rocky". I would highly recommend Oak Villa.

                        Owner response: Very happy to hear that you are enjoying your time in NSB and at OakVilla, Tom and Diana! Please send "Rocky" my regards and tell him to enjoy the drinking water in the fountain :) Eug

                        From the first call with the owners and every detail along the way even the way in which we did the contract was impeccable - playful and pleasurable. My only regret is that the cottage is so in demand that I don't know when the next time is that I'll be able to rent it. So if you're one of those lucky people who are using it or renting it enjoy every moment of it and take good care of it.

                        This lovely villa is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. The tropical landscape can be enjoyed from outside and in! Pulling into the driveway and being able to walk right into the front door made this feel like home. We enjoyed visiting all 3 pools and the beach is a short walk away. On days when we wanted the calmer waters of the lagoon for our toddler, we took a short drive up to Smyrna Dunes Park beach. Eug was an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to staying here again!

                        My parents visited villa for the second time. They just love it and now know what to expect: the best. Everything is well maintained and it doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like home away from home. Eugene is very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you, they will be back in 2014.

                        I had the rare opportunity to spend "a month by the sea" and Oak Villa was the PERFECT place to do so! The owners, Eugene and Jules, were wonderful and prompt in communication and in describing/presenting Oak Villa. The villa itself was absolutely perfect. A short walk to the ocean - an even shorter walk to the pool - and the tropical setting surrounding the villa allows for a beautiful view even in the September rains. We could not ask for a more quiet and peaceful - relaxing and rejuvenating - tranquil and refreshing place to have spent "a month by the sea" - ~ the villa's accommodations are clean and well-maintained ~ the owners are extremely helpful and prompt in their communication ~ the location is perfect for beach lovers and sightseeing - close to all that New Smyrna Beach and the surrounding areas have to offer We will be back! Thank you Eugene and Jules for creating such a lovely haven!

The neighborhood is quiet and welcoming.....just minutes to the beach. The owners are very easy to work with and so pleasant. We are so blessed to have found Oak Villa. Already looking forward to returning next year!!!

                        The Oak Villa is so much more than the pictures and the website can convey. The Villa was so refreshing and relaxing, just the place to go to recharge. The kitchen is well appointed and the whole house is well equipped. The furnishings and decor are perfect for a beach get-away. The grounds are like a tropical garden with quiet, private seating areas. The owners were very helpful and have a large, information book with lots of places to visit in FL.

                        "My parents loved their vacations and want to come back next year if they are well. By the way where did you buy your wooden toucan (in the corner by TV)? They fell in love with it and want to have one of their own. :) Thank you again for having them. They keep saying that they liked it better then cruises and resorts as it felt like home away from home."

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Thank you for visiting our site. We are Eugene & Julie Theron, and we are the fortunate guardians of Oak Villa, a true little slice of heaven. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and love to travel the world and experience the many diverse cultures and beautiful places and people that this wonderful world has to offer. Of all the amazing places we have been, one of our absolute favorite things to do is to go down to New Smyrna Beach for a relaxing beach vacation, and to rejuvenate in the magic of Oak Villa, where it always feels like we become one with the surrounding Live Oak trees, where meditative thoughts and casual conversations swirl together with remarkable ease. We are engaged in many activities and ventures, and are constantly striving to do good deeds and to live our lives in peace, joy and harmony, loving one another and our friends and family, as well as other people in our lives. Nothing gives us greater joy than to help someone in need, or to give something just for the sake of giving, or to share something special with someone deserving, or to share love and happiness, especially with people that are lonely, sick, underprivileged, needy or otherwise struggling or less fortunate in life. We try to have the basic principals of LOVE underscore everything we do, while treating others with absolute respect and compassion. This brings meaning into our own lives. We hope to get to know you, and to welcome you into Oak Villa.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sea Woods:
                      This is a sad but beautiful story. In 1997, while my brother was battling cancer, we wanted a special place for the whole family to spend some quality time together. We chose New Smyrna Beach, and rented a great house on the river, surrounded by beautiful live oaks. We used to go for walks, down to the beach, or along the many pathways through the tropical vegetation. We discovered Sea Woods, this amazing and unique community, and all of us instantly fell in love with it. Julie and I immediately started looking for a place to purchase, and just months before my brother's death, we were able to close on Oak Villa. The good news is that we were able to spend some magical time together in Oak Villa prior to his passing. We always remember our beloved brother when we visit Oak Villa.
