About Martin Hering
Our family lives nearby in Winter Park, Florida and we love staying in our beach condo as much as possible. With our children in school and involved in many activities we usually have to enjoy the property vicariously through our guests who often send us emails and photos telling us how much they have enjoyed their stay at our special beach home.
Martin Hering purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Martin Hering chose New Smyrna Beach
New Smyrna Beach is the beach where families from Central Florida (Orlando) have been going to for many years. There are many other choices for beaches in the area (Cocoa Beach, Titusville, Daytona Beach, Melbourne, Ponce Inlet, and others) but New Smyrna Beach is the number one choice amongst locals here in Orlando. Why? It is very family friendly, easy access to Orlando (1 hour drive), and has a beautiful 14 mile pristine beach. The easy drive to Orlando allows guests to enjoy Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios and other fun attractions that Orlando offers.
What makes this Condo unique
The Southwind condo is one of the few properties that are gated which makes our beach area much more private. The Southwind recently completed a million dollar total renovation. Our condo is the only one on the beach that has a manicured lawn between the property and the beach making it very much like a private home. Our property is located on the southern end of the beach which does not allow cars to drive on the beach (the north side does allow cars to drive on the beach). With our unit being on the second floor corner unit you have incredible views of the beach and ocean. Our unit has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths which is great for our family. Most 3 bedroom units on the beach only have 2 baths. There is a huge difference between our condo and most others. We bought this property with the goal to make it the most guest friendly one on the beach. We love having families with children enjoy our condo and have added many amenities for children that very few other properties have (baby monitors, side rails for beds, many many toys, games, books, DVD's, and more. Check out our guest comments and see what other families have said that have stayed in our condo and we hope to share our unit with you too.

Rest, Relaxation and Fun
This condo is awesome; totally updated, clean, and with every amenity. We have stayed here several times and have had a very good experience enjoying the full on ocean front balcony with its breathtaking views. This condo is well equipped for families with plenty of beach toys and kids toys, and, has a third bathroom which is rare for a beach condo. The grounds are very well kept, and there is a gate at the entrance for security and privacy. New Smyrna Beach is a small city, quiet and tranquil for a relaxing vacation, which also provides everything that is needed to add to your stay, such as: restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy, bakery and coffee shops. Highest recommendation possible!
Thank you for your high praises. So glad that you could return again and enjoy our completely updated direct oceanfront beach condo. Looking forward to sharing our home with you and your family again!
Beautiful Condo on Quiet Beach
Everything about this vacation spot was 5 star. The owner, Martin, was very accommodating. He answered all of my questions accurately and promptly. The Condo was recently remodeled and was absolutely stunning! The view from the condo was amazing! This is it is a very relaxing area and we enjoyed our entire stay there with things to do, as well as much needed time to rest on the beautiful quiet beach. We have already booked our vacation for next year and will be staying at this condo again. Thank you Martin for everything and we can't wait to come back next year.
Thank you for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed your stay in our newly renovated direct oceanfront beach condo and we look forward to your returning soon!
First Time Staying in NSB area
We were the first guests to enjoy this newly renovated beach front condo. We certainly were very pleased with the results. Vinyl wood-appearance flooring, quartz countertops throughout, comfortable and attractive furniture, to name a few. The kitchen was stocked with most everything needed to cook in. Loved the layout of the condo....also many beach toys and extras, games, puzzles, and videos for all ages were provided. Having coffee on the lanai while watching the ocean waves, dolphins, and sunrises was wonderful! The pool was definitely a plus in February and the water was heated to 80 degrees. The pool area and surroundings were clean and in good condition as were the tennis courts and shuffle board area. The area, in a location where no cars can drive on the beach made shells seeking easier. Most of all, the owner was helpful, attentive, and responsive to any question or need. We highly recommend this condo to couples or framilies.
Thank you Judy for your kind words. We certainly enjoyed sharing our newly renovated direct oceanfront beach condo with you and your family and look forward to your next stay. Thank you also for your feedback. It is our goal to always get feedback from our guests to make our home the best on the beach for the many families that visit throughout the year.
Great views and location
Overall this property had stunning views of the ocean and the location was great. We were able to wake every morning to the sun coming up over the ocean! The condo itself was very spacious, there were six of us and had plenty of room. The property was very kid friendly! They had any toy a kid could want to use playing on the beach of any age. There were fun games to play and TV in every room. The kitchen was large and spacious and stocked with anything you needed to cook. All linens and towels (including beach towels)were provided. Each room had its own bathroom which was nice with six people. Bonus the owner also provided late check out if we wanted to take advantage because no renters coming in behind us. The reason I did not give 5 stars across the board were for tiny things such as the pool was not heated - we later found out that it wouldn’t be heated until January 15th - the temp was 56 degrees which made it impossible to take advantage of. The condo could have been cleaner. Example mold in the master bath shower door, kitchen table light full dead bugs, everything needed dusted, linens for the twin beds had stains, the front bathroom vent did not work, the lamp in that bedroom did not work. These in my opinion are not show stoppers but all the little things add up decreasing my overall rating.
Glad you enjoyed your visit to New Smyrna Beach and our direct oceanfront beach condo. My apologies for the cleaning areas that were missed. I agree with you regarding the delay in the condo heating the pool until mid January. Unfortunately this is an HOA decision that we have no control over. Thank you for the feedback on the areas that needed more cleaning attention. We will let the property management company know immediately to get this resolved. I wish you would have called us or the property management company as all items mentioned could have been addressed while you were there. We are always available to help guests during their stay and the property management, who has been hired to take care of all issues, is always ready to manage whatever needs to be done. We will do anything possible to make our guests stay an enjoyable one.
NSB condo delivers!!
We enjoyed our week at NSB and found that the condo delivered everything we were hoping for. It was clean, comfortable and spacious for our family. We all enjoyed quiet, relaxing and fun times. The weather wasn’t the best but we did enjoy a few walks on the beach and loved the view from the second floor, beach front condo. We stayed here about 9 years ago, loved it then and loved it this time. We found the owner, property management, and condo staff to be most accommodating and friendly. Should we have another opportunity to stay at the beach we will definitely check this property out again. Thank you so much.
So glad you had a wonderful visit. Thank you for your kind words and we hope you can return again soon!
