Golden Arms condo description
Welcome to our private, well-appointed, and serene retreat, located on the 7th floor of the Golden Arms condominium, one of the nicest in New Smyrna Beach. Enjoy expansive views of the ocean from the living room, dining room, master bedroom, kitchen, and large balcony. Watch the pelicans and seagulls sweep by. Experience the constantly changing colors and moods of the sea.
Located on the side of the building closest to the beach, just one unit in from the end, 'Condobello' offers an upscale retreat with the comforts and conveniences of home. It is beautifully decorated in a “refined coastal” style that emphasizes contemporary casual comfort: there are new furnishings throughout, an updated kitchen, a large flat-screen HDTV, and premium linens. Ideal for one or two couples, a small family, a couple of friends, or solo travelers seeking a beach getaway.
On the large curved balcony, accessible from both the living room and the master bedroom, seating around a bar-height table provides stunning views of sea, sand, and sky—up the coast to the Ponce Inlet jetty, visible when the tide is low. As you enter from the “sunset deck', you’ll enjoy ocean breezes and unobstructed views from the coast to the intracoastal waterway. In cooler months, the bistro table and chairs outside the front door provide the perfect place to sit outside, relax in the warmth of the sun, and enjoy panoramic views to the south and west.
Inside, rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Beautiful cork flooring in the living/dining areas and bedrooms is soft underfoot. Cork is warmer than tile in winter months, absorbs noise, and offers natural resistance to mold and allergens.
The master bedroom (16x15) has direct ocean views and a king Tempur-Pedic mattress; the small second bedroom (10x12; no ocean view) is furnished with a queen bed. The master bedroom includes a separate vanity/dressing area, and each bedroom has a large walk-in closet with ample storage and “California closet” style systems that make efficient use of the space. The ensuite master bath has a shower/tub combo, while the guest/hall bath is equipped with a shower.
A beach closet in the entry provides a convenient place to store towels, shoes, and bags as you come in from the beach or pool. The kitchen is bright and airy, with white plantation shutters, white cabinets, glasstop stove, side-by-side fridge (with ice/water dispenser in door), Corian countertops with an integrated double sink, and garbage disposal. We also have a filtered drinking water system.
In the living room you'll enjoy a large flat-screen internet-connected HDTV, with a DVD player, expanded digital cable, and access to Netflix. Guests can use, free of charge, our high-speed (secure) wireless internet connection.
Located in the desirable “North Beach” neighborhood of New Smyrna Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches—and quaint beach towns—in Florida, the Golden Arms is well-managed and the grounds immaculately maintained. Entrances to the building are secure, and there are two elevators, as well as private key-code access to the beach from the pool area. Guests are welcome to use our designated garage parking space; outside parking is also available.
4-5 short blocks away, Flagler Avenue offers eclectic small shops and restaurants—from funky beach gear to art galleries to fine (yet casual) dining, as well as numerous festivals and celebrations—walk, or call NSBFree and be transported by golf cart! Across the causeway to the west, visit the Saturday Farmer’s Market as well as the small shops, galleries, and businesses on Canal Street. Everything you might need for a comfortable vacation--supermarkets, drugstores, bakeries, fish markets, and wine shops--is just a short drive away.
Sorry, no smoking; no pets.

My stay in the condo was amazing. The condo is tastefully decorated, the furniture is new, it is very compfortable, newly remodeled, clean & well maintained. The owners of this condo take extremely good care of the condo. The condo management immaculately maintains the property grounds and building. It was so nice to stay in a condo and property so nice & well maintained. The private deck on the condo faces the ocean & since this unit is located on the end closest to the beach and is on one of the upper floors, it provides an amazing view of the pool, grounds, beach & ocean - one of the best locations this property has to offer!! I highly recommend this condo for a vacation - it's location is supreme! It was very quiet & offers privacy. I spent a lot of time on the beach & at the pool, I also enjoyed walking (a short distance) to the shopping district that New Smyrna Beach has to offer. There are some great restaurants - I recommend the deli they make fantastic sandwiches. There are also boutique shops that are fun to explore. There is always something going on - when I was there a kite flying contest was held on the beach a short walk away, you can watch surfers from the private deck or the beach. Walks on the beach are great. New Smyrna Beach is a friendly beach town. You will not regret this vacation getaway & you will LOVE the condo!! It was a great vacation, I will definately return & stay in this condo next year.

What a wonderful condo ! First of all the owners are so welcoming and making us feel "at home".. We have been so comfortable for our three month stay. The condo is tastefully decorated and so well equipped . The linens, dishes,, and cooking utensils are of top quality. The owners have all information available to you about restaurants, things to do,etc..... Views from both the deck and veranda are breath taking Golden Arms is close to many shops, restaurants and things to do... Do not miss an opportunity to stay in this condo... Thanks for making "Condobello" a wonderful experience and a beautiful "home away from home"

"Spectacular ocean views in Luxurious Space"
I love New Smyrna, and this condo has amazing views of the beach, both north and east (from the living room and large master bedroom) and south and west (from the kitchen window and sunset deck). The two-bedroom, two-bath space is beautifully decorated in a tasteful beach theme. Virtually everything was new when I was stayed there earlier this fall. The kitchen has all the tools you need if you want to cook in (and the views are fantastic from the kitchen because of the open-plan kitchen/dining room/living room). If you feel like going out for dinner, it's a short walk to Flagler ave. and lots of dining choices. The large balcony is my favorite spot of all, and I love the raised table and bar chairs that allow for dining outdoors while still being able to watch kite surfers, paddle boarders, and beach walkers. New Smyrna's beach is flat and expansive, one of the best beaches I know of for walking and running. Or you can just stay in this luxury condo and watch everyone else exercise. There's also a super-big-screen TV for anyone who manages to get tired of the beach scene. This condo is a great find, and I look forward to staying there again.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We have lived just 30 minutes from New Smyrna Beach, in DeLand, for more than 20 years. NSB is, by far, one of our favorite beaches and favorite beach towns in Florida. We love the natural beauty, the sound of the ocean, and the small-town historic feel of Flagler Avenue and Canal Street. For many years, both within and outside the US, we've been on the other side of vacation rentals: we've been guests rather than owners. These have been some of our best vacations--we've come to greatly prefer private rentals to hotels. As a result, we've also learned a great deal about what makes a vacation rental special; we apply those lessons to ensure a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable experience for our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Golden Arms:
We purchased this property in summer 2012, primarily for our own use. We chose this particular unit because of the solid construction of the building (it's built like a fortress, so no noise transfers between units), the incredible location on the beach and proximity to the ocean, the size of the rooms, the spectacular views, and the proximity (walking distance) to Flagler Avenue. We also really enjoy the neighborhood feel and quiet of North Beach.
