About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Get away from the crowds!! Our condo at Chadham by the Sea is in a small gated 52-unit complex one mile from a national seashore - we're the last condo south on the 'non-drive' beach. Amazing views from multiple rooms; 4 flat screen TVs; mood lighting in the ceilings of living room and master bedroom; private wifi. Look at our pictures to see the views; if you don't see these views on other websites it's because they don't have them! Read our Reviews - our guests love us!

You are free to explore before booking - use Ask the Owner a Question. Or if you're ready to book use the Book it Now process.

New Smyrna Beach is one road up and down the beach; easy! So why be crowded on the north end; come on down to the south end (5 minutes by car) and have privacy and peace of mind on the 'no drive' part of the beach.

Our direct oceanfront condo (we are in the north building) offers the sounds, smells, and breezes of the ocean - without ever leaving the condo! (Take a virtual video tour of our condo by clicking on the link below.) We have totally unobstructed views of the ocean as far as the eye can see...both up and down the beach.

Wake up to a magnificent sunrise viewed from the full glass wall in the master bedroom. Hear the break of the waves - we're on the 2nd floor, 100 feet from the ocean, with unrestricted ocean views from the balcony, living room, dining room and kitchen, in addition to the master bedroom.

Our unit is a roomy, 1400 square feet, with another 200 square feet of balcony, all on one level. We've decorated it 'casual beachy'. The 3 bedrooms each have a flat screen TV: a King bed in the master bedroom, a pillow-top Queen in the second bedroom and two twins in the third bedroom. There is plenty of closet space; a large double-sink master bathroom, and a washer/dryer in the unit. Both the living room and dining room are tiled; and the kitchen is fully-equipped - all the way down to spices.

Our home is on the second floor, easily accessed by elevator or the stairs.

We think of New Smyrna Beach as 'old Florida'. In fact, readers of Orlando Sentinal newspaper voted New Smyrna Beach as the best beach in Florida! We know you will love this home as much as we do. For the continued comfort of all of our guests, we do not allow pets or smoking.

Shop and compare - we think we have one of the best values on the beach!

Why Beth Taylor chose New Smyrna Beach

We looked all over Florida and fell in love with the small town 'old Florida' feel of New Smyrna Beach. It was also close to family and attractions in Orlando. We prefer the east coast of Florida to the hotter muggier west coast. We love it there and can't visit enough...future retirement location and happy to share it with guests until then! We have gotten lots of wonderful feedback on our place from guests.

What makes this condo unique

We watch dolphins from our 2nd floor balcony in the mornings and then in the evenings stroll across the street to the intracoastal and watch the manatees play. We are across from JB's Fishcamp (restaurant). On the 'non-drive' beach. Salt-water pool...if you haven't tried this it is luxurious!!! Small complex; not overrun. One mile from National Sea Shore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Beth. Yes, we had a great time. I'm sure my note that I sent the week we returned ended up in the spam folder. Your vacation condo is very nice. We felt right at home and enjoyed the golf courses. Hopefully we can rent it again sometime!

Amazing view!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time! The direct view of the ocean is amazing! We spent a good bit of our time sitting on the balcony watching the ocean. The condo was clean and well-equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed during our stay. It seemed like the owners had thought of everything throughout and things were well organized, with most items having a labeled spot. Nice TVs and reliable wifi. Owner quick to respond - easy resevation and check out list.

Best Condo on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo so many times and it never disappoints. Beth is a gracious host. Always available to help if there are issues. Hurricane Irma ran us out early and Beth was very generous and understanding. Thanks again for sharing your lovely condo, and we will be back.

Beautiful facility and condo.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the condo. Loved the stocked spice cabinet! Used the crock pot everyday so we did not have to slave over a hot stove.

I don't do the water and sun thing but watched my grand daughters and daughters from the wonderful air conditioned view in the master bedroom chairs. That was my favorite place in the condo. I read, napped, watched and napped some more.

The location is perfect - no traffic on beach and across the street from JB's where we ate a couple of times. We also watched the manatees (7 of them) play in the cove across the street next to the park.

It was a wonderful place to stay. Thank you. We will be returning!

PS - This is very important ... Everyone loved the beds. Perfect. Not too hard, not too soft. Just right.

Best Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to NSB for 4 years now and we have always stayed at Chadham by the Sea. It truly is a home away from home . We always have the best time as a family and we look forward to always going back!
