About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay7 nights
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Well kept & maintained 4 BR/2 BA, 2-story home on a quiet street on south New Smyrna Beach. Our location couldn't be more perfect. For starters, we are only a few steps from the beach (non-driving section). Next, you can walk two blocks to the famous & popular rustic restaurant/bar, JB's Fishcamp. Only 2 blocks south is the boundary for the Canaveral National Seashore Park, consisting of 25 miles of pristine Atlantic Ocean beach and dunes and is the longest expanse of undeveloped land along the East Coast of Florida If seeing wildlife is your thing, manatees are often seen grazing at a County riverfront park with a pier, which is only three blocks away.
Our section of the beach has no driving and very limted public parking, thereby making it practically private. With a vacant lot next door, we have ample parking for your RV, boat and friends.
From our place you can beach walk less than 10 minutes and cross into the Canaveral National Seashore Park where there is absolutely no development. You explore the beaches & dunes in their natural pristine state. If people-watching is more your thing, you can walk the same distance northbound and you will be at Mary McLeod Bethune County Beach Park (see links to both Parks below). There you will find surfers, a lifeguard and plenty of bodies soaking up the sun (also tennis courts, basketball courts and fishing dock across the street, riverside).
Why pay an arm & a leg for a beach vacation when you can walk a few steps and stay for half the price? For what you'll pay for our place, you can afford another trip. Or, better yet, stay with us twice as long!

About Debi Lake
My name is Debi Lake and I manage our family vacation home. My in-laws, Pat & Jerry, had this home built in 1980 for weekends and summer vacations. After some damage that occurred during a 2005 hurricane, we did a total renovation that took several years to complete. To help offset the cost of that renovation plus the overall high maintenance of a beach property, we decided to accept weekly rentals. Please see our guest reviews. Everyone loves our place and I know you will too.
Debi Lake purchased this House in 1980
Why Debi Lake chose New Smyrna Beach
We began renting only a few years ago, after our renovation. We loved the Atlantic beaches and always wanted a family vacation home. With Orlando as our home base, we wanted some place within a reasonable drive and New Smyrna was the perfect choice. It exactly a 1.5 hour drive for us door-to-door. Also we loved the remoteness that 'Bethune Beach' (South NSB) offered. It's like our own private beach (no traffic).
What makes this House unique
We love being so close to the undeveloped beach of Canaveral National Seashore park, and yet only a quick jaunt away from restaurants & shopping. We love having two separate, upstairs/downstairs family/TV areas. The kids can shoot pool, play video games and watch their shows downstairs, while we enjoy other activities upstairs. We love our large upstairs outside deck, especially in the mornings with a cup a coffee and late afternoons with a refreshing adult beverage. It doesn't get better than that!
Sports & Adventure Activities
Nice real people’s house! Very relaxing. Weather was awful but still plenty to do. Will come again!
Volusia County needs to fix those beach walkways! This was the only bummer and we found that they’ve been out since hurricane Matthew! Younguns among us climbed the rocks to dig for sand fleas and fish for pompano but the elders stuck to the walks in the National Seashore which is so close it’s like a personal playground! Easy boat ramp access and nice walks. We saw armadillos, dolphins, gopher tortoises, and raccoons. Great spot.
Thank you for the kind words, we hope that you are able to come back soon!
Perfect location and well equipped!
We loved our stay over the Thanksgiving holidays. The house was clean, very well equipped and located within a short walk of the beach and a park on the river with a playground and a boardwalk where we watched dolphins. Moreover, the Canaveral National Sea Shore and its miles of unpopulated beach is a very short drive away. A great value in a great place.
This property was very clean and very nice. Good access to the beach.
This house is wonderful! Probably one of the cleanest houses we have ever rented on the beach. I would absolutely reccommend this house for anyone who wants to vacation by the beach. Great location, street was quiet. Don was excellent to deal with when making reservations, always responded to my emails, text no matter what. The house is just perfect. Husband and I was only there for a few days while we were in town for the races but after those were all over we enjoyed our last night at the house playing pool and sitting on the upstairs deck. The pics really don show how great a vacation home this is!!!
Relaxing family time
We really enjoyed The Lake house. It was exactly what we were looking for in a beach getaway. The house provides plenty of space, is clean, neat and furnished in an easy comfortable style. We felt very comfortable sharing the space with our four legged kids and grateful for owners who allow well behaved pets. Steps from the beach and BJ's Fish camp was convenient and far enough south on the beach for plenty of privacy. Loved it and hope to go back again soon!
Extremely Clean, Comfortable and Quiet
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here during the New Years Holiday. The neighborhood is quiet and you can sit on the deck and listen to the waves crashing on the shore. The pictures here do not do the property justice. If you rent this property you will not be disappointed. While here we visited the Manatees in Blue Springs State Park, there were 166 Manatees in the spring. We lived in the area for over 10 years and never were there that many. We had members of our party fish the intercoastal waterway and had a great time.
County recreation park is three blocks away with tennis, basketball, children's playground and fishing pier. Also two boat ramps are close by. On Sundays at the Canaveral National Seashore Park, 2-hour pontoon boat tours of Mosquito Lagoon & the estuaries are given by National Park Rangers (for a small fee).
