Beachside comfort and convenience.
In 2003, My husband Michael and I purchased this run-down "ugly duckling" of a house -- that had been standing since 1915. Not too pretty but a great location. It is actually 2 houses that have been here now over a century for our main house and the "flat" was built in 1945. In 2007 we hired a local contractor, one of the Clancy family, to remodel the main house. The Clancy's own a restaurant on Flagler Ave. had a very large family and made a significant impact on this town over the years. The oceanfront park across the street is named after their mother Marianne Clancy. This was quite a "party house" we were told by many. It had 9 bedrooms and 4 baths when we bought it! Our mailman told us that members of The Allman Bros. Band rented the home one summer. We are still trying to get information about its history. Recently, a very nice former resident knocked on our door and brought a picture for us of the houses in 1953 when she spent her summers here. New Smyrna has always a favorite place for Orlando residents to get to "the beach." The beach is all about "creating FUN memories" and we hope all of our guests will too!
Owner purchased this Guest House in 2003
Why Owner chose New Smyrna Beach
in October 2003 there was the ad "Multi family dwelling, steps from the beach. Owner will hold mortgage." Due to its run down condition,.the only way anyone could buy this was with a private mortgage. Love at first site! I never thought we would get to live here - but that happened in 2010 and we love "the beach life!"

Loved our week long stay! It was perfect for the 2 of us. Right at the corner near a small park at the beach was convenient to go back & forth to the beach - no need to drive. Walking to Flagler ave was fine (more enjoyable to walk to the beach and go from there).
Hosts were super friendly & often there to say hello as we were in and out often. Rode their bikes, used their beach chairs etc - they were very accommodating.
We would stay there again for sure.
We were very impressed with how clean and pretty the flat was....lots of windows...nicely equipped with everything...lots of linens....coffee pods...towels etc...very nicely decorated with all Florida motifs..comfortable beds.pleasant outside seating with a fireplace...and we had a fire every evening...close to the beach and we were provided with chairs..couldn't ask for better..walking distance to restaurants and shopping...and Candy and Mike were great hosts ..very pleasant and accommodating.. loved it.
Thank you for choosing to stay at Palmdiggity! We enjoyed YOU "the happy family" as guests. Hope to see you again.
Perfect spot for couples get away
Candy and Mike are fantastic hosts. The place is super clean and they have thought of everything for your trip. Bright and comfortable this rental is ideal for a short or long couples get away. Close enough to walk to everything and secluded enough to take a deep breath and relax. Thanks, we will be back!!!!

Wishing all the best to you!

Loved our stay!
This studio is quaint, cute and in a great location. Just steps away from the beach it has it all. The house was immaculate and came with everything that we needed for a fun weekend stay. Having bikes was a nice touch as it made the entire community accessible without having to use a car. It was our first time to New Smyrna and we will definitely return.
Thank you for the good review. You and your family were a pleasure and we hope to see you again.
Wishing all the best for you!

A tropical getaway with the Best Hosts!!
We were greeted as soon as we arrived. We felt right at home and so comfortable. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Could not ask for anything better.
This beach flat is super clean and cozy. Perfect for a couples get-away or for a personal retreat. The side bedroom has the feeling of a sleeping porch and is a great place for reading when you come in from the beach. During our stay we enjoyed walking the beach and riding the beach bikes that were provided by our hosts. The beach access is an easy walk across the street. Candy and Mike are very accommodating and provide a quiet, relaxing environment for their guests.
Thank you Judy! Hope to see you again sometime.
We are located within walking or biking distance of everything! Forget the car! Bring flip flops. Great restaurants, nightly entertainment, beautiful beaches, wild life excursions. Pickle Ball free everywhere. If you do not know what that is take free lessons at the Babe James Gym.
