It was splendid
Location and accommodation were excellent...
The location of the property was wonderful, and the size worked well for our family, however the bugs were so bad we left early. We were eaten by mosquitoes and what appeared to be sand flees, inside as well as outside. The other various bugs were annoying as well. The spider webs were all over the place, and the windows in the upper unit were filthy. We have rented in New Smyrna Beach before and loved it, but this house was disappointing. If there had been a little pest control done on the property it would have been a wonderful vacation.
We have always had a professional pest control company treating the house on a regular basis. Mosquitoes and no see ums are outside and at the whim of nature. Normally, the breeze comes from the east and off the beach and keeps the mosquitoes away and to the west. Occasionally, the wind changes from the west and you have more of a presence of mosquitoes during the morning and evening for that day. What we find is that with a large party, the door is left open accidentally or opened and closed an over abundance amount of times in a day which allows some pests into the home. We recommend and usually keep a can of spray in the house for the stragglers that get in. Thank you.

Relaxing time at the beach. Peaceful and private
The house was perfect for our needs. We were unsure of the downstairs being separate but my husband and I used the downstairs while leaving the teenage and adult kids upstairs. It was perfect. We did sacrifice by not having an updated bathroom in the downstairs but it’s not like we spend much time in the bathroom anyway. The daughters were thrilled to use the shower with the double shower heads all week in the upstairs bath.
There was plenty of room for 6 of us then we had our 7th guest join us 1/2 way through the week. We gathered at the dining table upstairs for meals and games. The tiki hut was fabulous to sit in the mornings and during the heat of the day. No need for a tent at the beach. Literally steps for our own almost private beach. No need to fight for a spot right at the waters edge. The bugs in the evening made it impossible to sit outside so that was disappointing but no fault of the house.
The beach is easy to walk on making long walks on the beach a wonderful treat each day. Walking around the outside of the house was nice as well because there are nice paving stones on the lower level from the driveway to the steps to the beach.
The two kuerigs were a nice surprise. One in the upstairs kitchen and one the lower kitchen which meant we could fix our coffee downstairs and go straight to the tiki hut without having to disturb anyone upstairs. Would highly recommend this house and the location is perfect!
My only suggestion would be bringing washcloths as we only had 8 which made it difficult to shower each day without having to wash more washcloths but there is a washer and dryer downstairs to use. The owners provide so much of everything else, there were garbage bags, plenty of towels, beachtowels, beach chairs, lounging chairs, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, two nice refrigerators, paper towels and more!
Perfect location and home!
All was great! Take away the mosquitoes and no see ums and we’d give a PERFECT 10!
Great, convenient, comfortable!
This is our 6th year renting this house. Great house and great location.
