About Dale Armstrong

I am a commercial airline Captain for Southwest Airlines. I also live in New Smyrna Beach so I am available to quickly handle any questions or concerns you may have while renting. You can rent from me with confidence and I guarantee that you will love your vacation at my beach house! Feel free to call my cell phone with any questions. Thank you! Dale

Dale Armstrong purchased this house in 2007

Why Dale Armstrong chose Cearra Del Ray

As a little boy, my family always drove from Maryland to New Smyrna Beach for vacation. I told myself that someday I would own a vacation beach house in New Smyrna Beach because I loved the beach and Disney World. As an adult, I realize there is even more reasons to vacation in New Smyrna Beach! Now I want to share my wonderfully relaxing beach house with you!

What makes this house unique

The beach house is very upscale as you can see from the photos. Plus, pet friendly for most pets! The ocean is literally only 212 steps away (you can hit a baseball from the house and it will hit the beach). Very close and convenient to come and go to the beach from the house in no time without any effort. Everything you could want is provided including high speed wireless cable internet, bikes, beach chairs and boogie boards. Every family/group that has stayed has loved their vacation!

Great house

  • 4 of 5

My only complaint was the weather since it was too hot to use the back porch -- but great size for a larger family and the amenities in the house and garage were so helpful!

Great location in New Smyrna Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beach house! Everything was just as described - a short walk to the beach (a nice, uncrowded section of the beach), comfortable rooms, and a great stock of beach chairs and other supplies. There is a grocery store just a short drive (or 15 minute walk) away and an ice cream store just down the road. We loved the location and the house!

One of our best vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to New Smyrna Beach. We could not have asked for a better experience. This house was perfect. Dale has made sure that you have everything you could ever need at the beach. Chairs, coolers, surf/boogie boards, there was even a stack of beach towels just in case. The location is perfect. Just a short walk to the sand and you are in an area that is not busy. Even with the cars driving on the beach it didn't ever seem crowded. The house is set us perfect for families. My son loved the bunk beds. The kitchen has everything. All we had to do was go to the store and get food. Dale takes care of everything. When we went to go for a bike ride, yes there are two beach cruisers there to use, and found that one of the bikes was not working Dale had a brand new bike on our back porch the next day. With everything being so close you can bike to stores, bars, and restaurants.

If you are looking for a wonderful house and a great location, this is the place for you. We are looking forward to a return visit.

This Beach House has it All.... 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

This is a amazing little home, and we were very thrilled with the extra items that were there to use, such as beach chairs and bikes. We felt right at home and enjoyed getting up for the sunsets and then enjoying the rest of our day. There are so many close restaurants and activities in NSB. We will definitely be back.. :)

Family Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children stayed in this lovely house for 4 days in September. The home is beautiful, well maintained and has very easy access to the beautiful New Smyrna Beach. We had a wonderful stay. We have family that lives in Edgewater and visited with them. One of the family members is in a wheel chair and it was very easy for him to come visit because of access to the house. The owner was very helpful. Even called to see if we needed suggestions for restaurants and to make sure everything was in order. Owner is very easy to work with.

A GREAT experience all around.

The beach house is wonderful for families on vacation as well as those visiting other families or friends in the area that want a little extra space and privacy. I look forward to your return in the future and please remember that I provide a nice 10% discount for return renters. I am glad you enjoyed the beach house and New Smyrna Beach!
