'Beach Nuts', 4 bedroom and 4 bath house is an oceanfront paradise that awaits the discerning traveler who enjoys a pristine coastline and spectacular views of the aqua Atlantic ocean from your own private oceanfront oasis.

Monthly Magazine and 'Most Beautiful Beach in Florida' by Florida Travel Magazine. See and hear the ocean from every room on the main floor of the house, including the Kitchen, Great room/Dining Room, Florida Room, Two of the four Bedrooms, and the ENORMOUS terrace. The outdoor terrace wraps around the Florida room and even boasts an outdoor shower to wash off sand after a day at the beach.

The kids and Fido will love "Beach Nuts". Yes, we are dog friendly. The house has everything you need for an unforgettable, relaxing stay at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! All beds are comfortable and new sheets and bedspreads are updated on a regular basis. We recently updated the Greatroom with two new sea blue colored full size sofas that are very comfortable to sit in while taking in the views of the ocean and watching TV. We have tried to accommodate you with everything one would need to have a great time at the beach: beach chairs and towels, kid's beach toys, beach towels, games, books, a new entertainment unit with a flat screen TV(cable provided)plus three other TV's, stereo,and DVD. Enjoy free cable & WiFi all over the house. Don't forget to view the sunrise and sunset over the ocean! Enjoy the ocean breezes and aqua water of the Atlantic, while relaxing on the comfortable terrace furniture and patio tables and chairs or enjoy a cookout with the grill while watching the sun set from the oceanfront terrace. Walk from the terrace down your very own private 'sugar' white path set in a tropical paradise to the beach and stop for a swing in your hammock strung between two palms by the ocean. Enjoy shopping or antiquing along Flagler Ave. Flagler Ave. is a quaint street lined with palm trees and brick sidewalks. There are plenty of 'cottage' boutiques, art galleries, and great restaurants abound. You can charter a boat and go freshwater or deep sea fishing or take in a round of golf at the numerous golf courses within close proximity. Remember that Orlando is only 45 minutes away and Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, MGM Studios and all of the the Orlando theme parks are approximately an hour away.

This house is AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say it enough, this house is AMAZING..

This is our second trip to this particular house, and we are doing it again next year. The house is wonderfully located right on the beach, not close to it, not on the other side of the road from it, RIGHT ON THE BEACH! You wake up every morning to the sound of the waves hitting the shore, seagulls flying overhead, the sun rising and fresh ocean air hitting your face. Without busy lives, this place is heaven.

Our first trip we made in July of 09, it was myself, my husband and our three kids. When we arrived we were just in awe of the property, each room had its own bathroom, the house was decorated adorably and walking out the back door, well it just took my breath away. We could shop for groceries at the local store and come back to the house and cook our food. No additional expense for eating out every day, which is quite pricey with three kids. We wandered around Flagler Ave for trinkets and to have ice cream and the people in town are wonderful. We had arranged to go to NASA as well as Discovery Cove, they were a close commute from the house but the best part was not the tourist sites but coming back to this house. When we packed up to leave from that first trip I knew we would be coming back.

Our second trip was in December of 2012 and we fell in love all over again. What made this stay different was we brought 3 of our kid’s friends and my mother. That made ten of us total. There was enough room for all of us in this house and we could have even brought more. Everyone had an amazing time; we grilled out, hunted for sea shells, took walks on the beach oh and lazed around in the hammock on the beach. Everyone had a wonderful time and memories were made that will never be forgotten. It was the best after Christmas, Christmas present ever!! Oh and I forgot to mention that they have fireworks on Flagler Ave for the New Year holiday and they were awesome. Being from Wisconsin, that was new and wonderful!! I can't emphasize enough how wonderful it is to stay here, we travel every other year and this is by far my absolute favorite destination.

We are already in the process of planning our return trip for 2014. Susan is wonderful to work with and on top of things that it eliminates the stress of trying to plan a vacation. I can't thank her enough for all of the wonderful experiences we have had at this house and will have in the future. But I can keep coming back!!!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy to have this guest back again! The comments are typical of what I hear from others who want to love the feel of Old Florida while enjoying all the fun activities of New Smyrna Beach and Orlando. It's no surprise that this guest truly enjoyed just being at "Beach Nuts"..loving the sights and sounds of the ocean, grilling on the large terrace, people watching, swinging in the hammock, taking a walk to town from the beach for ice cream and shopping while shelling, and just enjoying many of the simple things that make for great memories. You'll love having 4 bedrooms (plus 4 air mattresses) and 4 baths plus the open floor plan of "Beach Nuts" that offers spectacular ocean views at all times. The ocean terrace offers panoramic ocean views day and night. Yes, there are theme parks to visit in Orlando, golf, fishing, places to discover, but then there's no place like home...and one of the most beautiful beaches around! Come have your fun in the sun...you won't forget it and you'll want to come back for more!!

Christmas vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Took the WHOLE family to New Smyrna for Christmas and rented this adorable house, absolutely loved it. We are already thinking of coming back! The house is right on the beach, woke up to the sound of the ocean, and minutes from downtown. Everything was thought of by the owner and you can't beat the price. Special note, we were traveling with three infants/toddler and there was a pack n play, baby gate for the deck, beach toys, and even a box of goldfish on the counter to welcome our little munchs! My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. I highly recommend, you won't be disappointed!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 can't wait to get back! From the moment you enter you're greeted by ocean views, we kept the expansive sliding doors open during the day & night to feel the ocean breeze and rarely ever needed the A/C. The sounds of the waves always in the background added an extra layer of serenity. This place has everything you want & need for the beach including chairs, ton of beach towels, bodyboards, toys for the kids, everything! And for the techies who need it, the centrally located high speed wifi was great.

Morning and evening walks on the beach are a must, enough said there. The outdoor shower on the deck was ideal for everyone especially our chocolate lab.

Whether we were grilling on the deck or cooking in the kitchen we could always see the beach. And this place literally has every amenity for cooking and serving, not to mention Publix shopping plaza was so close that any little extra you may need is right there. At night after dinner, we sat around the outdoor fireplace on the deck until one by one every member of the family retired to one of their 4 bedrooms.

Thank you to the owners as well, everything was communicated clearly and promptly. Perfection! We miss it already : )

P.S. Next time we'll be renting a 4 seater golf cart (or scooters) at the rental place just down the street so we can go exploring further down the beaches.

Family wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house so our family could all be in one place. Our son got married in New Smyrna Beach so the beach house was an excellent retreat between the festivities. Excellent location. Beautiful setting. Serene mornings. The owners communicated well. The accommodations exceeded our expectation. Would love to return & how we can sometime.

Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5

My family lives in Florida, California, and New York so we don't get together as often as we'd like. In August we had a 4-day window of opportunity. Instead of staying at three different sites we investigated short-term house rentals that would allow us to stay together.This presented a problem because most rentals only offered a full week option. I must have contacted over 15 rental properties, but no one would consider a shorter stay. Susan was more than gracious to offer her house for the 4 days. The house is perfectly positioned to greet the sunrise and finish the day with beautiful ocean breezes. The screened porch and patio were great places to hangout. The kitchen was fully equipped which made mealtime easy. Washer/dryer, beach toys/chairs, paper products supplied. The brand new air conditioner was a blessing given the high 90 degree weather we had. The house is close to the downtown area and the grocery store. Susan was readily available by phone or text to assist in anyway. We had a lovely time at BeachNuts!
