About the property

House, 5 Private Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

New Smyrna Beach is a quaint 'Old Florida' beach town, located on a barrier reef, between Ponce Inlet and Cape Canaveral Park. 'No Outlet To The Mainland' (for cars going north and south) means New Smyrna Beach is 'Less Travelled' in comparison to other beach towns.

Situated on an Indian River canal beneath a shady canopy of live oaks, this spacious, affordable, and ideally located two-story vacation home, (incl. Guest House), offers complete privacy for one or two families (in three living areas), and is just an eight minute walk to your uncrowded 'traffic free' beach.

Relax in the hot tub, swim in the pool, walk to the beach, explore the back bay, enjoy a drink at the bar, or play a game of pool; the choice is yours.

UPSTAIRS, the luxuriously large master bedroom/bath suite features a jetted tub, oversized shower, bidet, walk-in closet, and balcony. DOWNSTAIRS, a favorite gathering place for drinks, or a game of pool, is the billiard room. An 9' slate pool table is the centerpiece of this large room, that also includes a full wet-bar, stereo, and 2 TV's. Also located on the lower level are three bedrooms, a full bath, and laundry room.

All 5 bedrooms are private. 'NO' fold-out couches in common areas. Queen in Master BR. Queen in 2 of the downstairs BR's. 2 Twins in the 3rd. downstairs BR. Guest House has Full on bottom/Twin on top bunk-beds.


GUEST HOUSE: Need more space for weekend guests, kids, or grandparents? Included in the price, and a special feature of this property is the detached guesthouse. This 24'X12'cabin sleeps 3-4, has a full bath, air conditioning, TV, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, and a deck overlooking the canal.

A fisherman's, and nature enthusiast's paradise. With a jon-boat, canoe, or kayak, (not supplied), you have access from your dock to the Indian River Lagoon, Intra-Coastal, and Atlantic Ocean. Fish for trophy reds, snook, sea-trout, etc. Dig for clams and oysters, or try crabbing and shrimping. Just down the road at Bethune Park, Manatee's feed almost year round. Slightly further is the 57.000 acre Cape Canaveral Seashore/Wildlife Preserve.

Ecological wonders abound right from your back porch in North America's most diverse estuary, (home to more than 4,000 species). As you kayak away from the dock, and the sounds of land disappear, seabirds roost, nest, and fish, in this labyrinth of meandering channels (aerial map included). The sense of remoteness, even so close to shore, evokes a feeling of serenity. Typical sightings reported by guests include: Dolphins, Great Blue Herons, Ospreys, Snowy Egrets, Pelicans, and even an occasional Otter. Kids enjoy catching blue crabs and fish right from the dock.

Walk to the beach and watch a space launch, or enjoy the 'catch of the day' at one of the many interesting restaurants nearby. There are 25 golf courses within 25 miles (4 in town), as well as several tennis courts nearby. Racing, and the 'Most Famous Beach in the World' are located in Daytona, 20 miles away.

With Disney only 1 hour and 15 min. away, make New Smyrna Beach your vacation destination. Stay near the beach, and still see all that Central Florida has to offer.

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS: UPSTAIRS: Master BR/Queen. DOWNSTAIRS: 2nd BR/Queen, 3rd BR/Queen, 4th BR/2 Twin Beds, GUEST HOUSE: Bunkbeds-Full Bottom/Twin Top.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

All of the prior positive reviews are on point!! We spent a week here and are very happy with our experience. Although we were a little hesitant on renting a home rather than going to a resort somewhere we were definately not disappointed. There were plenty of beds for 10 of us and had no issues with feeling crowded. Every room/guest house had TVs, ceiling fans, and plenty of storage space. Hot tub and heated pool were a blessing for us coming from the Midwest. We even attempted to catch some crab off the private dock but unfortunately were only able to catch one little crab. The owner was very helpful with any questions/issues and has been very easy to work with. The location is great, not too far from the beach, shops and food/bars. Also we were only a short drive (30-45 min) from Daytona which provides many more things to do, eat a meal at Joe's Crab Shack on the pier or walk the Daytona boardwalk! I would definately rent this house again if/when we go back to Florida and will share our great experience with friends and family!!

Owner's Response: I'm very glad you had a wonderful vacation in NSB, and thank you for taking the time to write a review. I thought about asking if you wouldn't mind posting a review but didn't want to solicit a review. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised to see your very nice review on my website. You guys were wonderful renters and left my house in great shape. I hope my answers to your constructive questions were helpful. Please come back soon. R

Just about perfect

  • 5 of 5

This private home was just what our family of four (2 teenagers) needed for our week in New Smyrna Beach. Actually it was almost too much in terms of plenty of space for just four people. Only about four blocks, a quick walk to the beach. Umbrella, towels, and a couple of boogie boards were supplied. Beach was not crowded at all, surf was perfect and not too cold. Heated pool and hot tub were perfect as well -- hot tub was actually hot! Grill and outside eating area too. TVs in every bedroom and the living room, plus WiFi, kept everyone happy when we weren't at the beach. :-) Owner was very easy to work with, provided A TON of information about what to do, where to eat, shop, etc; and was easily accessible for questions once we arrived. Local handyman was friendly and engaging as we rented kayaks from him. Enjoyed the backyard sunsets, kayaking the canal, and caught(and released) a few crabs. House was well supplied, nicely appointed and up to date. We would definitely consider renting again if we return to NSB.

Great place for active adults

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this rental over the New Years week this year. The house is as advertised but we were a little confused over the exact layout of the rooms. There is a master bedroom with full bath in the upstairs. There is also a 1/2 bath upstairs. Downstairs there is two bedrooms with queen size beds and one room with two twins which I think they call the office. There is a full bath downstairs. The guest house is about I dunno, 50 feet from the house and has a bunk bed with a full size bed on the bottom. It has a full bathroom. This guest house worked well for us because the couple in there had a young child and that house is completely soundproofed from the main house. We could play pool and watch sports without waking the child. The hot tub is small but gets plenty hot and it's prefect for right after a winter surf. It fits four adults smuggly but comfortably. There is also an outdoor shower with only cold water which is nice but not private. The dock is small but good enough for fishing and you could paddle board or canoe off of it at high tides. The upstairs bedroom and rooms are very well appointed while the downstairs bedrooms are more basic but still comfortable. I would describe them as "no frills." The room with the pool table is a great place to hang out. Some of the pool furniture and deck furniture needs a little bit of updating but you're at the beach so weather and salt wear these things out quickly.

Overall this house is a huge bargain for the price. It is in a nice safe neighborhood and it is very private. We walked to the beach and surfed many times no problem. It is not a luxurious house but it is clean, well kept, and very comfortable. The owner does a good job of communicating and the house manager/handyman Lucky is a real taste of old school Florida . Really nice guy. Enjoy !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We, 4 sisters, 3 husbands, 3 children, 1 baby and his father spent a great time in the house. It felt like home, but it was much better because of the swimmingpool, the jacuzzi, the poolbillard and the space. The house is great, wel furnitured and clean.

Some of us were very happy with the wifi.

It is short walk to the beach and there is enough to do in the area.

The owner and the housekeeper are friendly. I really would like to go back, but it's too far away for us. I really recommend this house to other people.

We came down for bike week. There were 12 of us adults, we had a great time.. Very nice location, far enough away from town but close enough to run for a bite to eat or get a few groceries.. House was laid out really nicely so everyone had privacy..Had a great time just sitting back sipping on a glass of wine while others played pool in the bar area. The back of house really private and secluded, lots of trees for privacy... Will definitly be back in the future.

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our family reunion. The house was well maintained and spacious with an excellent arrangement for a large group. The pool and hot tub were awesome. The pool table and bar were enjoyed by all. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. All the linens and towels you need are provided. The owner is very nice and answers all your questions. We highly recommend this rental to others.
