About Christy & Kay

We are so excited to have just bought the beach condo of our dreams! We are two families from Kentucky that were brought together by fate in 2014. We own a local furniture, home decor and design store in Richmond, Kentucky called Cottage on Main. We have always dreamt of owning a beach property so we decided to expand our business and share our little slice of heaven with you. COTTAGE BY THE SEA is decorated with our signature Cottage on Main style including brightly painted furniture and hand made pieces from our Farmhouse Collection. Check out our store at or to check out our style and some additional videoclips that give more details of our story.

Christy & Kay purchased this condo in 2017

Why Christy & Kay chose New Smyrna Beach

Divine intervention! We were staying in a friends condo in Port Orange and our girls quickly wanted to be closer to the ocean. We scrambled and found an available oceanfront and adorable condo in Hacienda Del Sol 1 and upon arrival FELL IN LOVE! We had the most relaxing vacation ever. The views are truly amazing. We loved the fact that we were steps from the sand and when we got hungry or tired, we would walk two minutes back into our condo to recharge. This small condominium complex is family friendly and the beach was never over crowded. We also appreciated that there were no cars on the beach and there is a lifeguard station right in front of our complex during peak season. Next thing you know we had called a realtor and were beginning the journey of owning our own slice of heaven.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is such a sweet retreat for our two families and we really hope it is for your family as well. For us, this space allows us to disconnect with the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus on the simplicity of God's glorious creation and quality time with each other. There is nothing better than the peacefulness of sitting on the balcony and watching the sunset. It's truly tailored for families, good times, and lasting memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for having us at your Beautiful Condo in NSB. My husband and I had a wonderful time. Your place had everything needed to make us feel at home during our vacation. We look forward to returning next year.

Wonderful Week on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this charming condo for a week during our spring break. The place was clean and cozy. Check in with the manager was a breeze and he gave us some advice about things to do - definitely recommend JB's Fish Camp which is a 5 minute drive away for dinner, dolphin sightings, and a beautiful view of the sunset. The kids loved the heated pool and we all enjoyed the shuffleboard.

Pros: smaller building and family-friendly, gorgeous view of the ocean from room, non-drive part of the beach, walk right out to the beach, beach chairs and toys are available, three bedrooms were great for our two families, kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, very convenient grocery store right across the street

Cons: Dining/living room area is a tad small compared to other condos we have rented - not a huge deal for us because we are rarely hanging out in the room, but worth mentioning. We were able to pull enough extra chairs and stools around the table for a big game of Uno! Also, as listed - there is no washer and dryer in the unit, but there is one on the floor.

The pros definitely outweigh the cons and the owners were easy to contact and quick to respond. We would be happy to return and I highly recommend booking this condo for a great stay at the beach!

Convenient, easy beach, attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

This condo has great attention to detail, and excellent taste, in decor. Kitchen etc. has everything you need. We did not use alot of the beach items but there is a storage area with chairs/cart/umbrella/boogie boards.

The beach access is easy and pool area is pleasant. People here are not rowdy, so it is family friendly. We enjoyed going down to the busy part of the beach one day; but it was very nice to stay where we could build sand castles etc. & just enjoy the ocean. The building is older but well maintained, so don't let that stop you. We would stay here again & highly recommend it. Owners were a pleasure to deal with.

My family and I had a great time and really enjoyed our stay. This property is beautifully decorated and the view is priceless. The room had everything we needed with plenty of towels, kitchen accessories, and board games. We hope to visit again soon.

Best Beach Condo in New Smyrna Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many beach front condos and hotels over our 20 years of marriage and this was by far, our favorite. From the moment we walked in, it felt like home. Our kids affectionately called it 'our beach house' all week. It is beautifully decorated with warmth & comfort, meticulously cleaned and well stocked for every need. Our kids enjoyed using all the beach toys provided, playing shuffle board, swimming in the pool and enjoying endless hours on the uncrowded beach.

The specific unit in the condo is the best one in the building. The view of the ocean is breathtaking. At high tide, the water is so close, it can seem as if you are perched directly over the water. The master unit has windows on both walls that face the beach. There is simply nothing more peaceful like falling asleep and waking up to the gentle ocean breeze and the sound of the waves. We spent every morning, late afternoon and evening out on the balcony...

We loved that it was so close to Publix for a quick trip to stock up on groceries. For a 5 minutes drive, we also enjoyed a few meals at Breakers, the best burger joint in New Smyrna Beach! (or Florida for that matter!).

What really makes this condo stand out above the rest, is the owners. They are beyond pleasant and go above and beyond to make your stay a welcoming, relaxing vacation. You can tell they put their heart into and care about each and every guest.

We can not wait to return

our favorite beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this condo for over 10 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else! Have tried others and none compare to this one. It is beautifully decorated, well maintained, and oh the view of the ocean! The owners are wonderful to work with and excel in meeting your every need. Over the years there have been a few unforeseen minor issues and the owners have responded immediately and the issue was corrected quickly. Can't praise them and their condo highly enough!

Great Condo, Great View, Should get 5 stars but Elevator was down all week!

  • 4 of 5

My three adult daughters, my husband, and I stayed for 8 nights and really loved the beach, the town, and the condo. The size of the condo was just right. The bedrooms were spacious. Two full bathrooms were what we needed. The balcony is a gem. The beach is not crowded, only feet away and such a little slice of heaven. I can't say enough about how comfortable we were in this condo and on this beach. All the amenities were great (beach chairs, sheets, towels, dishes, dishwasher, and toys). The wifi was great. We didn't watch the TV's but they were there. We had a great time on the beach too. The only reason I did not give this condo 5 stars is the elevator was down all week. We had to carry chairs, umbrella, snacks, drinks, towels, sun screen, etc up and down 5 flights of stairs multiple times each day. We loved that you cannot drive on the beach (it's so much quieter and safer) but because of this it did us no good to leave the chairs, etc in the car. My in laws were at the beach the same week for our nieces graduation from high school but they could not enjoy dinners with us in our condo because they weren't able to walk up and down 5 flights of stairs at 80 years old. We were pretty bummed out about this. I'm not sure what we would have done had we arrived and one of us been on crutches to find the elevator down for the week. The owners were very helpful when we arrived giving us directions to find the condo (we were at building II because my husband thought he remembered where to go from when he was a kid here on vacation lol). I would recommend the condo and this beach over and over but I would verify that the elevator will be working or have some kind of back up plan with the owners if the elevator will be down for repairs. From what we could see with the signs the owners were notified that the elevator doors would be replaced and that they were to be done the week prior to our arrival but the doors arrived late and therefore the replacement would take place May 26th through May 29th. Even though the dates were changed the building management assured us that all condo owners were notified in advance. Regardless we enjoyed the pool, the clubhouse, the grills outside and even tried shuffle board for the first time. It was a fun relaxing vacation and we slept the entire time with the windows wide open and the sounds of the ocean with a huge breeze rocking us to sleep. If you ever want to sell the condo, let us know.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review of our condo! We are so glad the majority of your stay was good. As you now know, because we do not live at our near the unit and because our current management had transitioned from their jobs, the information regarding the elevator servicing from Tuesday through Friday was unfortunately not given to us. Had we known, we absolutely would have let you know ahead of your stay and we would have offered you a refund should you have needed accomodations suitable to your family staying nearby. (we are so sorry your in-laws couldn't get up to the unit!) We strive to make certain our guests are aware of any issues happening at the complex and (for all those who stay with us) will always offer approrpriate refunds for anything occuring that is outside of your or our control. If you stay in the future, please be certain to let us know immediately during your stay if anything is happening at the unit so that we can take the appropriate action to make your vacation is as comfortable as possible. While we don't have immediate plans for selling our unit, we will certainly keep you in mind in case a future sale happens. :)
