About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our beautiful condo is in a lovely wooded community on the relaxing barrier island of New Smyrna Beach. Casual, unspoiled and unpretentious, it's the perfect getaway. We have free wireless internet service and the whole condo is a 'hot spot', even the 2 outside porches.

Stroll a short walkway to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean from our refurbished and tastefully decorated beach place. Private amenities of our oceanside community include 3 swimming pools, 4 tennis courts, 2 racquetball courts, clubhouse, fitness center, and many biking and jogging paths. One of the reasons we chose New Smyrna as a vacation home is the great dining options. There are many privately owned laid-back eateries, as well as some more sophisticated options. Another lure is the family atmosphere and conspicuous lack of crowds on our non-driving side of the island.

Besides the beach, there are many other leisure options such as golfing, shopping, live theater, art festivals and more. Only 60 minutes from Orlando and another half hour to Disney and other Orlando attractions. We take great pride in providing all the amenities to make your stay a memorable one. Relax, unwind and have fun!

About tom and marie shumilak

We live in Orlando, just down the street from New Smyrna Beach. Tom is an artist and Marie works in advertising. We love the outdoors, especially the beach. Our philosophy is 'work hard, play hard' so when you come to NSB to play, we can give you great tips on what to do and where to eat. We love to eat.

tom and marie shumilak purchased this condo in 2004

Why tom and marie shumilak chose Historic District

We looked up and down the Central Atlantic coast and found a lot of overly commercial beach towns. NSB was the perfect balance of activities and amenities with a pure, unspoiled beach experience. Plus being only an hour from our home in Orlando allows for frequent spectacular weekend escapes for us and our friends. Our guests often tell us that there's a special quality to our place, that it's a hidden gem, and the one spot where they can truly unwind.

What makes this condo unique

Our verandah has been remodeled and redecorated. Our bright, sunny unit is located across the street from the beach in a quaint, wooded neighborhood. Sea Woods Features: 3 pools (1 heated seasonal), 4 tennis courts, 2 handball/racquet ball courts, nature trails, bike paths, exercise/rec. room, clubhouse, walking distance to dining/grocery.

Couldn't Have Been Happier!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay here! The condo was better than expected. We have used Homeaway and similar venues over the past years and this experience was the best! The condo was clean, well maintained and had plenty of room for my wife and I, my daughter and nephew. It was within walking distance to the beach. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and relatives. We also will be looking at returning in the future! Thanks Tom & Marie

Owner's Response: Mr. Crocker! We could not be happier that our beach getaway exceeded your expectations! That is what we strive for. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us and others and for recommending us to your friends and family. There is certainly no better advertising than a recommendation from a trusted friend. We look forward to your return visit anytime! Best regards, marie and tom shumilak

A truly wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful retreat destination! The condo is the best in the entire area - easily accessible, comfortable and close to everything. A lovely place to walk, enjoy the pools and easy access to the beach. Our trip was terrific. We explored New Smyrna Beach (loved it!) and did a day trip to NASA visitor center. A cruise on the St. John's River was a great time of dolphin watching. Found some great eating spots, too. We recommend this condo highly. Thanks, Tom & Marie, for sharing your lovely space.

Best in 20 yrs of Fl. rentals

  • 5 of 5

Seawoods is a paradise of ingenious architecture built in and around lush native botanicals,pools,trails etc and this unit is the best here. (We explored). Very comfortable and classy furnishings w/every amenity including a very private sundeck. We loved having the heated pool and jacuzzi close by and the the short cut to the Atlantic beach. Marie and Tom have been wonderful. We will definitely recommend them and their vacation home to our friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Doug and June, We don't know how this review got by us from 3 years ago! Oh my! Thank goodness we are better at managing our property than our website. (tee hee) In the event that you happen by this page again, we wanted to respond with deep appreciation for taking the time to write your review -- and such a thoughtful one at that. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope you believe in the adage... "better late than never". :o) Hope all is well with you and yours, marie and tom shumilak

Beautiful Condo! We'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very nice stay at Tom & Marie's place! The condo has a great location, is very clean and has access to several pools within the community (that were not crowded). The walk to the beach was very short & easy, even with a 3 year old.

Basic amenities, that are not offered at most other condos or beach homes we've ever stayed at, are standard here - from beach towels, chairs & coolers to bath towels, sheets and plenty of kitchen supplies, it is obvious Tom & Marie want you to be "at home" in their beach home.

We will definitely stay again & refer our friends! Thanks Tom & Marie!

Owner's Response: Hi Sara, We're so glad you and your family felt at home! We've really strived to make a beach getaway that's relaxing and comfortable (and lucked out that we found a place close to both pool and beach). Tom and Marie

Located on A1A across the street from the beautiful non-driving side of the beach. For some reason the VRBO map is showing our location on the mainland side. But we ARE, in fact, located beachside, over the Intracoastal Waterway on A1A, the north-south road that runs along the beach.

Just a few-minutes drive or bike-ride to local restaurants, shops, bike- kayak- and SUP-rentals, and total fun on both A1A and Flagler Avenue.
