Private Homes house description

Eight steps to the pool and another five to the beach...can you imagine anything more enticing? Our Sandbox is the 'storybook' vacation -- 5,000 SF or 'Everything-Beach'. All bedding, kitchen supplies (including a pantry stocked with staples), entertainment (game room, music, internet, etc), pool & beach items (umbrellas, chairs, boards, floats, etc), expandable dining options (including outdoor dining), sun-worshiping chaises, bikes & jogging stroller, BBQ, multiple kitchens & laundry facilities and much more!

Our Sandbox is professionally decorated and managed. It is maintained in superior condition (not always easy for ocean-front homes) and, when available, provides an amazing vacation environment that will exceed all expectations!

Three king bed suites; four twin bed suites; two sofa convertibles; seven full bathrooms; two kitchens; split-plan...dressed in traditional beach decor with a touch of whimsical creativity!

New Smyrna Beach is still considered 'sleepy' by Florida standards, and that's what we love most about it! The moist beach sand is perfect for sculpting the most challenging castles, while the silky, white dune sand caresses your toes as you stroll miles and miles of coastal beauty.

Unlike other Atlantic town beaches, you'll find no cars touring on our beach area -- nothing but children frolicking in the sand, surfers taming the breakers, shell-hunters and romantics strolling next to the rambling waves. All you can imagine is here at The Sandbox. Welcome.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We are a family of four living in Central Florida. We purchased and completely renovated our beach home a few years ago to create a 'retreat' to escape the craziness of our lives in Orlando. The Sandbox is an amazing place to relax and unwind, whether its just the two of us, our family, or a get-together with extended family/friends. The Sandbox is not your ordinary beach house...it breathes life into you and invites you to enjoy its surroundings. You will immediately succumb to its serenity! We know you'll enjoy our Sandbox as much as we do -- welcome to the beach!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      The Sandbox is located about an hour from our home near Orlando (and Disney, Universal, Sea World, water parks, etc) and is just down the beach from Daytona Speedway & Kennedy Space Center. Finding a home that can accomodate large families or groups under one roof is challenge enough; finding one that has our ocean views and accessibility, spacious pool, pristine beaches, amenities, etc? Well, that's just rare!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      White sand beaches await you in New Smyrna Beach. Whole sand-cities are easily sculpted, while bike riding, strolling or jogging on miles and miles of beach is simply wonderful here. Our beach home is situated directly on the beach and accessed from a quiet, unassuming, residential street. We have no immediate neighbors and are located at the end of the street for amazing privacy. We do benefit from a lifeguard station only three lots away (stationed in-season only), and still have amazing restaurants and shopping just up the street (one just a short walk away).
