Great Beach House
Perfect location, lots of room for the whole family. Had a great time.
What a great home! My family and I had an amazing time! Beach everyday, had some take out for the local restaurants! It was nice to get away with all the craziness in the world right now!! Definitely going to book this place again and again!!
Great house - plenty of room for our whole family
We really enjoyed staying at the Lake’s beach house. The owner supplied everything we needed and we were able to walk to the beach every day since it was only a couple of houses over to the walkway. The beach was never crowded and the area restaurants were fantastic. Would highly recommend El Patron for authentic Mexican food and JB’s Fish Camp for seafood.
The only issue we ran into were the mosquitoes, but there isn’t anything the owner could do about those. Thanks for a great week.
Great place to unwind
Debi's house was a great respite for our after busy days. The kids loved playing in the water and the street was quiet and safe. The house had all the necessities of home and plenty of space for everyone to have alone time and to spend time together. The beach toys and chairs along with towels we're a great addition and a great thing not to pack. We'd definitely stay again.
Relaxing week at the "Lake House"
My family had a fun and relaxing week at the Lake's beach house. Compared to some of the other condos and townhomes we've stayed in at various beaches, this house was quite spacious. We had three adults and two young teens and never felt the least bit cramped. A nice sized kitchen and dining table, as well as two living areas, the pool table, and a fantastic balcony had us enjoying our time in the house as much as our time on the sand. My wife was thrilled with the full sized washer/drier (as opposed to the typical over/under, compact ones we usually see at beach rentals). We brought our own beach toys, but there was a nice selection of chairs and boogie boards for use. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dinnerware, pots, pans, and bowls (and most of it even matched!). Food-wise, there were very basic essentials (salt, pepper), so you would need to provide most of what you might want there. I actually didn't mind at all, as I'm a little skeptical of using the "community" food that is left at rental properties. The kitchen includes two coffee makers - a Keurig and a 12-cup traditional drip machine. There were plenty of towels for showers and beach trips.
The kids enjoyed the Wifi connection and DVD collection, as well as the pool table. Except for one day-trip to Kennedy Space Center (about an hour's drive) we spent every day out on the beach. The walk to the beach is a piece of cake - up the street a few houses, then right over the public access. The beach was very quiet during our stay (end of March). Right now, the beach itself is not very wide, and very slim when high tide is up. I read that they have been dealing with some erosion from the regular tides, as well as some of last year's storms, but it wasn't a big problem. We just checked the tide chart, and took a nap during high tide. The national seashore is an easy walk south, if you want that more "undeveloped" feel.
We did not eat out, but there looked to be some great local places to go. Flagler Avenue in New Smyrna is a nice place to stroll and browse through shops and cafes. We did get some fresh fish and crab cakes to take home at Ocean's Seafoods Beachside. It was delicious.
Overall, we had a fantastic week and wouldn't hesitate to return.
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).
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 Bethune 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!
