Welcome to our private & secluded little paradise by the beach! Our beach villa ('Oak Villa') is located in the very popular and unique ocean side community of Sea Woods in the resort town of New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Experience a world class ocean-side vacation without paying resort prices! Walk in your flip flops along the beautiful oak-covered paths to the beautiful beach and surf just steps away.
Sea Woods is known throughout the area for its unique and abundant natural appeal, where the developers first hired the landscape architect before anyone else. It boasts over 50 acres of beautiful, lush, native trees and vegetation with nature trails throughout.
Sea Woods - a Resort Community:
3 Swimming Pools (1 heated)
4 Lighted Tennis Courts
2 Club Houses, available for events or parties
Fitness Center with cardio equipment and free weights area
2 Racquetball Courts
Shuffle Board Court
Jogging / roller-blading / bicycle paths throughout
Oak Villa, located at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac, is surrounded by lush oak and palm trees, making for a wonderful tropical jungle-like feeling where you can listen to the birds and the sounds of nature, including at times even the waves down on the beach.
Master bedroom with a nice king size bed and en-suite bathroom that has been remodeled with a beautiful double shower in travertine;
2nd bedroom with a queen size bed also with en-suite bathroom that is shared by guests;
An open den-room containing a bunk-bed that sleeps 2 (perfect for the kids);
Villa sleeps 6, and one of the leather couches also pulls out into a double bed;
Beautiful enclosed Florida-room with glass walls, bringing the lush outside into the living room.
We are constantly upgrading and remodeling the villa. We have recently (Sept '13) replaced all new berber carpeting throughout (where not tiled), replaced all exterior doors, repainted, and many other upgrades. Most of the appliances have also been replaced.
Fully furnished and functional, with all the conveniences that you would expect, including full kitchen, washer and dryer, TV and entertainment system, FREE INTERNET, linens and bath towels. Very private, lush backyard with patio area and BBQ. The landscaping was completed redone in Sept '13, with new rail-tie retainer walls, new backyard space, different areas to relax and sit out and enjoy the nature, and even a private nature trail that will make you feel like you are living in your own private native jungle. :)
Activities & Attractions in the Area:
The Sea Woods resort community, the town of New Smyrna Beach, and the greater area offers far too many activities, attractions and adventures to list. But here are just a few of our favourites:
Wonderful beaches for swimming, surfing, fishing, walking and driving your car on (only in certain close-by areas - the beach in the Sea Woods area is no-drive, which is a good thing).
Miles of back country wilderness and secluded estuaries awaits you in the Indian River Intracoastal Waterway System where you can kayak or boat and experience world-class fishing (it is known as the red-fish capital of the world), go bird-watching or simply enjoy being on the water. See dolphin and manatee up close.
Golfing and Tennis - in addition to playing tennis on 1 of the 4 lighted courts at Sea Woods, just steps away from the villa, you will find 7 great golf courses in the immediate New Smyrna Beach area.
Pamper yourself at one of the many Day Health Spas in the area, where you can spoil yourself to massages, facials, manicures and pedicures and more. Arts & Culture is a very strong feature of New Smyrna Beach. The city consistently ranks among the finest in books like 'The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America: Where to Discover Creative Communities, Fresh Air and Affordable Living' by John Villani.
Then there are river cruises, take the water taxi to Ponce Inlet where you can climb the historic light house, go for day hikes or explore one of the many parks in the area. The Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000 acre national park nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, is one of the longest stretches of pristine coastline in the US, and is just south of New Smyrna Beach, literally on your doorstep.
A little known fact is that New Smyrna Beach holds the distinction of being the 2nd oldest city in North America, though some historians believe it to be older than St. Augustine (which is just a couple hours north). Learn all about it at the New Smyrna Museum of History.

Thank you for visiting our site.
We are Eugene & Julie Theron, and we are the fortunate guardians of Oak Villa, a true little slice of heaven. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and love to travel the world and experience the many diverse cultures and beautiful places and people that this wonderful world has to offer. Of all the amazing places we have been, one of our absolute favorite things to do is to go down to New Smyrna Beach for a relaxing beach vacation, and to rejuvenate in the magic of Oak Villa, where it always feels like we become one with the surrounding Live Oak trees, where meditative thoughts and casual conversations swirl together with remarkable ease.
We are engaged in many activities and ventures, and are constantly striving to do good deeds and to live our lives in peace, joy and harmony, loving one another and our friends and family, as well as other people in our lives. Nothing gives us greater joy than to help someone in need, or to give something just for the sake of giving, or to share something special with someone deserving, or to share love and happiness, especially with people that are lonely, sick, underprivileged, needy or otherwise struggling or less fortunate in life. We try to have the basic principals of LOVE underscore everything we do, while treating others with absolute respect and compassion. This brings meaning into our own lives.
We hope to get to know you, and to welcome you into Oak Villa.
Eugene Theron purchased this villa in 2007
This is a sad but beautiful story. In 1997, while my brother was battling cancer, we wanted a special place for the whole family to spend some quality time together. We chose New Smyrna Beach, and rented a great house on the river, surrounded by beautiful live oaks. We used to go for walks, down to the beach, or along the many pathways through the tropical vegetation. We discovered Sea Woods, this amazing and unique community, and all of us instantly fell in love with it. Julie and I immediately started looking for a place to purchase, and just months before my brother's death, we were able to close on Oak Villa. The good news is that we were able to spend some magical time together in Oak Villa prior to his passing. We always remember our beloved brother when we visit Oak Villa.
From the first call with the owners and every detail along the way even the way in which we did the contract was impeccable - playful and pleasurable. My only regret is that the cottage is so in demand that I don't know when the next time is that I'll be able to rent it. So if you're one of those lucky people who are using it or renting it enjoy every moment of it and take good care of it.
I and two other ladies had a wonderful time at Oak Villa. It is awesome. The owners are remarkable and always respond quickly to any questions. Oak Villa is very nice, has plenty of room, and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the enclosed porch, which I called the Florida Room...It was like being enclosed outside in a tropical setting. We enjoyed the beach which is within walking distance. We enjoyed the pools and walking on the paths at Sea Woods. I also enjoyed bicycle riding. I bought a bicycle to ride while I was there and I would ride to the market and pick up a few grocery items and just go riding some days.The yard is beautiful with all the plants and trees.
This was the best vacation I have ever had. The owners are so kind and they have an awesome place. I am so glad I had the opportunity to stay at Oak Villa. Thank You, Eugene and Julie
Stayed at villa Jan - March 2016. I agree with all the previous comments and would recommend staying in the condo. The owners are friendly and helpful and responded quickly whenever we had a question.
The villa is close to the beach and I enjoyed using the exercise room. New Smyrna is a great place with many restaurants and attractions. We enjoyed the national seashore which is a couple of miles down the road and walks along the beach which so a short walk across the street.
New Smyrna always has something going on over the weekends and it is only a short drive to Orlando and cape canaveral.
The villa has everything you need and the landscaping is very tropical with the sound of birds in the morning along with an occasional visit by local wildlife.
The neighbors are very friendly and I'm sure you will enjoy your stay as much as we did.
Previous reviewers have extolled the numerous virtues of Oak Villa in Sea Woods (location, spacious, comfortable accommodations, local amenities and more). We concur 100%. As frequent travelers and renters, we especially appreciated the timely, personal and helpful communication with the owners. We are looking forward to an extended return visit. Thank you Eugene and Julie.
It was our 2nd stay at Oak Villa. We enjoyed it again. The house is very clean and comfortable.Everything you need for vacation is available. The owner Eugene is very friendly and helpful. We booked already for 2016.

My wife, daughter, and I enjoyed a relaxing month at the Oak Villa. We enjoyed mornings on the beach and afternoons at the Sea Woods pool, both of which are less than a 5 minute walk. The villa is spacious, clean, and comfortable. Communication with the owner Eugene was prompt and personable. We enjoyed ourselves so much we came back for another month.
It is our first stay at Oak Villa and we like it very much. It clean and very taseful, comfortible and decorated furnished. It is very well equipped and we found everything we need. Everything is in good condition. The tropical landscape is fantastic. We enjoyed the pools and it is only a short walk to the wonderful beach of NSB. It was a perfect holiday and we will be back next year.
The contact with the owners Eugene and Julie was perfect and pleasant. We got quickly answers for all our questions.
Eugene and Julie, we thank you for opening your home for guests.
