Why The Owner chose Florida Central East

We have always dreamed of owning an oceanfront property. We know that New Smyrna is one of the most beautiful beaches that give a small town feel but with a lot of things to do, places to see and great restaurants so that is why we selected this location for our vacation resort rental home.

2nd Year

  • 5 of 5

I have previously reviewed this condo, having a bad experience with housekeeping (no fault of the owners) and received a nice reply after clearing it up. We stayed again this July for a week, with our now 8 year old son. You can't beat the views. The second bedroom is perfect for son LOVES his 'Florida' bedroom! The bathrooms are both gorgeous and we even took some decorating ideas home for our future house under construction. We fought over the was VERY comfortable. We were also pleased to find a couple boogie boards we had left last year were still there. There are also beach chairs in the closet by the front door that we used everyday. We love the food in this town, as I've been going to NSB since I was 7 years old. You have to go to Boston's Fish House. Yum. Don't be turned off by the fact that you order at the cash register. It's only a little over an hour to Orlando, where we fly in and drive back and forth a few days for discovery cove and sea world. We will probably be coming back in July 2013. Again...LOVE this condo. Doing dishes doesn't seem like a chore when you are looking out into the ocean!

This condo is the one.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. It was clean, roomy and seemed to be professionally decorated. The complex was well maintained and the staff friendly. Everything you could possibly need was in the kitchen. The only thing is bring your soap, shampoo, and conditioner as theres are not provided. We are looking forward to coming back Thanksgiving weekend.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very impressed that the condo looked exactly as the website photos. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The beach views were gorgeous and my wife loved watching the sunrise every morning. I enjoyed the wifi accessability from the unit and the common areas of the complex. The whole vacation was perfect.

Unique beach experience!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo last August and would highly recommend it, and I intend to go back. The condo is newly remodeled and has beach front views with balcony. Kitchen is lovely and well equiped, entire condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed! The Castle Reef complex is outstanding with pools, covered picnic areas, outdoor grill, shuffle board and easy access to beach. It is a beautiful vacation spot! I LOVED the historical little town of New Smyrna! It is quaint and 'old Florida' with unique shops (found great stuff at Big Bamboo) and restaurants. We enjoyed lunch on the beach at 'Chases' and another fav was Bagel World. We also visited Smyrna Dunes Park that features a boardwalk, beautiful views, wildlife and a peaceful walk around the park. We rode our bikes on the beach, which is lovely and huge! We spotted dolphins leaping out of the water from the condo balcony! If you want a quiet, restful vacation Go to Castle Reef! If you want more zing...Daytona is only a few miles north! This place has everything, we loved it.

Great View

  • 4 of 5

My fiance and I along with our 7 year old son stayed in this condo July 2011. My son LOVED the tiki look of the guest bedroom. It was very nice, well decorated, amazing view. We had an issue with the cleaning crew however, which is no fault of the owner, but the first night we were going to bed and realized on the white sheets in the master bedroom was hair and body/blood splattered on it. It was 10pm - we tried to change the sheets and there were no other queen sized sheets in the linen closet. The Castle Reef Management asked the next morning if we wanted to go ahead and just wash the sheets. I was horrified at that response. Then the told me they would sent someone up in 30 min. We finally gave up and went to the beach. When we got back 7 hrs later, we were in the shower, and a worker unlocked the door, my fiance was in a towel, and had come in while we were gone, taken the linens, washed them, and brought them back while we were showering. Very awkard, so he ended up leaving them and we had to make the bed from the mattress pad up. It really made me wonder what else hadn't been cleaned....This was our second year to stay at Castle Reef, first in this unit. We prefer this unit - but Caslte Reef needs to improve customer service. We are coming back to NS this July and on the fence if we will stay here again due to the sheet incident. Which I hate because I really like the location of Castle Reef. Again - this has no direct reflection on the actual owners as this would have been out of their control.

Owner's Response: I am extremely upset to hear about your experience. Unfortunately, during high season the properties are sometimes forced to hire outside cleaning companies to help with the overflow. I have never seen any problems when I have been there after a cleaning has been done but we rarely are able to go there during in season since the unit is always booked. The master bed is actually king and there are always extra linens for each bed in the top of the linen closet, however, this should certainly not have been your responsiblity. There was an incident last year in which we went to check on the unit and there had been either a red crayon or lipstick washed and dried with some of our linens. I am almost certain it was a crayon because there were pieces of it in our rug and some other linens I had to throw away and a box of crayons had been left behind. I am not sure if this was during the time you were there but thought I should let you know. As for the other issues, all I can do is apologize and make the management aware. Thank you for your understanding as an owner we could not have known but appreciate your feedback and will do what we can to address. Sincerely, Angie

Great place to stay

This lovely beach front unit is beautifully decorated and well-equipped with the exception of wifi. The grounds are well maintained and it was such a great vacation, we already booked for next summer!
