About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Welcome to our private paradise by the beach! Our first floor beach villa (no stairs to climb) is located in the very popular and unique ocean side community of Sea Woods in the resort town of New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Experience a world class ocean-side vacation without paying resort prices! Walk in your flip flops along the shaded oak-covered paths to the beautiful beach and sunny surf just steps away.

Sea Woods is a centrally located resort community that provides you the best of both worlds - all of Central Florida's attractions, such as Disney World, MGM, Universal Studios, and Sea World while enjoying Florida's number ONE attraction - THE BEACH!

The extraordinary condominium complex is set on 53 acres of naturally landscaped rolling dunes. It is conveniently located on A1A (South Atlantic Avenue) across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. It is known to be the most unique resort community in the New Smyrna Beach area.

Our beachside villa is 1152 sq. ft. with a 200 sq. ft screened in porch and outside deck area. It has been newly renovated and decorated in 2010.

Golfing and Tennis - in addition to playing tennis on 1 of the 4 lighted courts at Sea Woods, just steps away from the villa, you will find 7 great golf courses in the immediate New Smyrna Beach area.

Pamper yourself at one of the many Day Health Spas in the area, where you can spoil yourself with massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and more. New Smyrna Beach is renowned for it's Art & Culture. The city consistently ranks among the highest in John Villani's book 'The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America: Where to Discover Creative Communities, Fresh Air and Affordable Living'.

Take the water taxi to Ponce Inlet where you can climb the historic light house, go for day hikes, explore one of the many parks in the area or enjoy waterfront dining. The Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000 acre national park nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, is one of the longest stretches of pristine coastline in the US, and is just south of New Smyrna Beach, literally on your doorstep.

New Smyrna Beach holds the distinction of being the 2nd oldest city in North America, though some historians believe it to be older than St. Augustine (which is just a couple hours north). Learn all about it at the New Smyrna Museum of History.

Quiet Spacious Condo in NSB

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, spacious condo! This was my families second stay at this property. Sea Woods property itself is very clean and well maintained. The condo is modern, spacious and very well kept. Parking is plentiful. This unit is in the corner and feels very private. There is a nice deck to enjoy your morning coffee on. It is very quiet here too! The unit offers a nice kitchen stocked with all the cooking necessities. There are also plenty of towels and extra linens. You can walk to the beach. There is a paved path that leads across the street to a wooden walk-way and you are on the beach! New Smyrna is a quaint town which offers lots of options for dining out. There are some awesome restaurants there! I personally recommend The Garlic. Upscale and always a great meal! For a great fresh made deli style sandwich, try Mon Delice French Bakery. Pastries are good, but their sandwiches are awesome! I highly recommend this condo. It is a great value. The owners are also very helpful and responsive.

Fantastic, fun time in SNB & this wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is a lovely, well equipped nest with great beds, 2 great bedrooms and bathrooms, super kitchen. The screened-in porch were highlights for early morning tea & evening wine...along with the deck in the back. Very private...only a couple of minutes walk to pool and the beach another few minutes past that. We walked everyday, rode bikes on the beach and just had a most fabulous time. We were present for the "Flager Street Wine Walk"--a dream come true--and for Halloween--such a fun community that holds these types of events and activities--everyone having a great time! Local restaurants to die for--Riverview, The Garlic YUM!! We shopped at the Farmer's Market which was lovely, at the Outlet Stores close to Daytona, went on a sunset Riverboat Cruise in Daytona for $20 pp that included dinner and also kayaked with dolphins. We danced, sang and laughed a lot!We did it all! Love the vibe of SMB & loved the location of the Villa.....can't wait to go back.

The villa could have been cleaner. The toilets in the bathrooms were not properly anchored.

I rented the villa September 11-25. The first week was during hurricane Irma. I could not get to New Smyrna because of the hurricane. This was a national emergency. There was no power at the condo and the bridge to New Smyrna was closed. I asked for a refund for the week of September 11 and the owner would not give me one. Will never rent from him again or through VRBO.

Owner's Response: Shocked! In our 7 years with VRBO we have never had other than very favorable feedback so we were shocked and disappointed by this review. In addition to a partial refund that we provided, we had attempted to make alternate arrangements which were accommodating to all. Had our renter mentioned the “unbalanced toilets” to us, we would have had our contractor come in to resolve. A recent bathroom renovation including a new toilet needed to be adjusted. This has now been rectified.

Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this lovely, well equipped villa in NSB, Florida. The villa is comfortable and very tastefully decorated and provides easy access to the beautiful beach, pools, tennis courts, shuffleboard and more. We rode the bikes and frequented many of the great restaurants and shops on nearby Flagler Avenue. Loved the screened in sitting room and the private back deck. Hosts were very helpful and accommodating - we will be back!
