The Florida room area is bright and airy, and overlooks a heavily wooded back yard. The owner has displayed some of her wall hangings giving it a warm inviting atmosphere. It is a wonderful place to sit and relax after a day at the beach. The kitchen has a ceramic cooktop stove, brand new Bosch super-quiet dishwasher, and is fully equipped with everything you need to cook with from a quick breakfast to Christmas dinner. There is plenty of off-street parking and a one-car garage. The patio, outside the Florida room, has a new motorized retractable awning. It is great for morning coffee, relaxing or entertaining! Additionally, there is a hot-water outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand after your day at the beach. The garage is stocked with plenty of beach supplies—umbrellas, kids sand toys, boogie boards, chairs. The laundry area includes a stacked washer/dryer.
Just across the street is the Indian River Lagoon Preserve Park. There are two docks, one faces the west and Mosquito Lagoon, the other faces a small creek. The sunsets are absolutely beautiful! Both are great places to go fishing or crabbing. Just down the street is a walkway to the Atlantic Ocean.
It is a great home for a family (child-friendly) getaway, girl's weekend, surf trip or couple's vacation! The beach house is 90 minutes from Disney, 75 minutes from Sea World, Universal Studios, downtown Orlando, Orlando airport and within 45 minutes of the Space Coast.

Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: My husband started coming to New Smyrna Beach as a boy. His dream was to own a vacation home at New Smyrna so his family would be able to go swimming or fishing and crabbing throughout the year. He has passed on and my children and grandchildren are located in other areas. So we want to rent the house enough to break even. Now our hope is that our guests and their families will also enjoy the relaxation and beauty of many days at the beach as we have—and still do. A totally new home was built on original slab in 2001. Our new home is simple and charming. It is quite comfortable and within walking distance to the beach.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We enjoy the small town atmosphere. The streets are decent, the traffic is light, there are many local festivals and the people are friendly.
The tile floors make the home easy to clean and take care of. We love the comfortable and convenient beachside location. We have treasured many, many good times with family and friends at the beach. It is not a glamorous house, but we have decorated it nicely (we think) and maintain it with a lot of pride. We think it is quite special and hope you will treasure it and joy yourselves at “our” beach house too.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow: Our home is located in a residential area between the beach and the Indian River Lagoon Preserve Park and the intercoastal waterway. We face the Preserve and have no neighbors in front or back of our house. Our lot is 200 ft deep and the back yard is quiet, private and heavily wooded. Condos and hotels are far away at the southern end of the beach. Shops are 8 blocks away.
