Why Leonard McNeese chose New Smyrna Beach
This condo has been totally renovated and has many upscale features that are uncommon in rental condos including new cabinets and granite countertops, crown molding and baseboards, highest quality sliding glass doors and windows, and excellent amenities. New Smyrna Beach has been voted the “Best Beach of Florida” for the past five years by Orlando Sentinel readers. This is the closest beach to Orlando and all Central Florida attractions. In addition, Motor Boating, one of America’s most influential boating magazines, featured a glowing two-page text and photo spread on New Smyrna Beach. Our friendly community is described as “laid back,” “about as good as it gets,” “low key and mellow,” “a small town with its own special qualities,” “seductive” and “an undiscovered paradise.” Smarter Travel recently rated New Smyrna Beach as one of the 10 Best Beach Towns in Florida. National Geographic rated New Smyrna Beach as one of the World’s 20 best surf towns. With 13 miles of beach, 300 surfable days a year, warm water, and great fishing. New Smyrna Beach is the laid-back center of high-performance surfing. It is famous for its consistency and its steep, wedging waves that break near Ponce Inlet which offer perfect ramps for aspiring East Coast professionals and hot local talent to do all manner of trickery. If you feel like getting schooled by some of the best surfers on the East Coast, head down to the inlet when a northeast swell is tearing in off the Atlantic, crack open a beverage, and watch the local guys soar above the lips of waves. New Smyrna Beach was featured in a major metropolitan news outlet. Jimmy Jacobs, who writes for the Atlanta-based Examiner.com, posted a review of his kayaking adventure and overnight visit in New Smyrna Beach. More than just a paddling review, Jimmy's write-up is a mini-travelogue. To quote him, "whether you are kayaking or not, the New Smyrna Beach area has activities and amenities to satisfy all your travel whims.

New Smyrna Beach
The McNeese condo in New Smyrna Beach was everything it was supposed to be. A nice, clean, well appointed unit in a great location with great views. Can't wait to return.
Great stay, clean and great views!
Visited with my family of six (all adults)for a week and found condo #401 spacious, clean and stocked with everything needed for a great stay! All rooms were well appointed and super clean (pictures are accurate)Great section of Flagler Beach for surfing, low crowds and quiet time. While my gang are all in their 20's, the condo is a great location for young families.
Definitely will be returning.
Wonderful beachfront condo! Highly recommend!!
The condo was spotless and well-equipped with beach chairs, beach and bath towels, umbrellas and all the cookware you could possibly need. There was even a mesh beach wagon to help with the beach trek. Condo is nicely decorated and has the most stunning views in 3 directions, plus comfortable deck chairs to enjoy your coffee or glass of wine. The onsite owner couldn't be nicer. Parking was easy and there are shopping carts to help you transport your luggage and groceries. Nice pool, beautiful uncrowded white sand beach, and a cute town to poke around and get dinner. We enjoyed our week tremendously and hope to be back!
Heavenly Beach week
Loved our stay at this beautiful 3/2 4th floor condo with wrap around balcony in New Smyrna Beach. I loved the bathroom design so much I am going to remodel my own bathrooms just like them. The condo has everything you will need. The week after Thnaksgiving was a fantastic time for sun, fun and beautiful sunrises!
Fantastic! Upon walking in, the place was beautifully decorated an the scenery was breathtaking. It was one of the most relaxing, memorable vacations our family has had. We got to experience a baby Turtle hatch an make it's way to the ocean. We got to see dolphins right from our condo an our children from ages 10-18 thought it was the coolest. I felt totally at home there. It was so clean an modern!! We didn't even need beach towels or beach chairs. You guys have really thought of everything from boogie boards to floats an even a wagon to deliver your things to the perfect white sand. It couldn't have been a better place to be able to watch our kids from the balcony play in the pool an see the ocean at the same time. The king size bed slept so perfect that we wanted the same mattress for our home. Thank you much for these wonderful memories!!!
Since ancient times, the New Smyrna Beach (NSB) barrier island has provided sanctuary to both people and wildlife. Many threatened animals find refuge here, including sea turtles who nest on its shore. Like Indians and early settlers, you too can find tranquility. Swim in the ocean, fish in the lagoon, stroll down a wooded trail. Or reflect on the longest expanse of pristine shore in Florida. Some things to do:
Walk the beach: A tender breeze ruffles sea oats and beach grass on dunes as it slips down to a wide golden beach stretching beneath a shimmering, yellow sun that sits in a scrubbed blue sky. There is no better place than the 13 miles of pristine sands for soaking in invigorating sun rays or building a miniature medieval country of sand castles. NSB was voted Best Beach by Orlando Sentinel readers on multiple occasions and for the past five consecutive years!
Ride a bike: Miles of wide, hard-packed-sand beach are ideal for an easy sightseeing bike ride or an early morning look for shells washed ashore the previous night.
Go surf fishing or fish Mosquito Lagoon: Shallow waters just off the beach are ideal for catching pompano, red fish, whiting, blue fish, and an occasional flounder. NSB is the red fish capitol of the world. Boat rentals, charters and expert guide services make fishing easy, and these resources are almost as plentiful as the fish themselves.
Explore Canaveral National Seashore is a barrier island park and recreational playground with 24 miles of undeveloped wide beaches and lagoons, the longest stretch on the east coast of Florida. Mosquito Lagoon, comprising over two-thirds of the park, is designated an Outstanding Florida Water and is part of the 155-mile long Indian River Lagoon, which is the most diverse and productive estuary in North America. Mosquito Lagoon supports nationally-recognized commercial and recreational fisheries for finfish, clams, oysters, blue crabs and shrimp.
Watch a turtle burrowing, a manatee swimming or a porpoise playing: Sea turtles build about 5000 nests annually from April to September. About 50 days later turtle hatchlings emerge from eggs and make a perilous journey over the beach to the surf. Manatees or "sea-cows" love the rivers and lagoons and can be seen lazing along the water surface. Right whales and porpoises swim just off the beach and porpoises play in the Intercoastal Waterway.
Bird watching: From osprey to white-faced ibis, bird lovers have a very special treat including the early spring mating ritual of resident Florida Sandhill Cranes. See pelicans soaring and diving for fish, and egrets, gulls, sandpipers, and terns on the beach. Visit Black Point Wildlife Drive, a six-mile self-guided scenic drive that winds through pine flatwoods and impounded marsh and provides excellent views of many species of wildlife including bald eagles, anhinga, storks, and many other unusual birds as well as many alligators. Large numbers of waterfowl, wading birds and shorebirds can be seen during the spring and fall migration periods and winter. This estuary is the most biologically diverse ecosystem in North America with over 400 species of birds alone!
Visit Turtle Mound: Located along Mosquito Lagoon, this archeological site, built by Native Americans between 800 AD and 1400 AD, consists of 1.5 million bushels of oyster shells. Rising 35 feet above surrounding landscape, it provides a panoramic view for miles and is favored for watching migrating hawks and oceanic birds.
Visit Eldora House: Built in the 19th century, Eldora House was a major stop-over for shippers and travelers in the riverboat community of Eldora. Located on a barrier island once occupied by Indians, as evidenced by numerous oyster and clam-shell mounds still dotting the landscape. Eldora House was one of the first large houses and was later Eldora Hotel, an overnight resting place for travelers on steamboat paddle-wheelers. One of the last original homes "State House" or "Eldora House," was renovated to become Eldora History Museum.
Fall in love with the arts! NSB is home to world-renowned Atlantic Center for the Arts, a tranquil seminary for artists worldwide that hosts a wide variety of events. Every 1st Saturday is Gallery Walk on historic downtown Canal Street. Enjoy the work of over 100 artists. Every 4th Saturday is Art Walk on Flagler Avenue. Stroll from the river to the ocean while enjoying wine, music and art!
Kayak or paddleboard marshlands or beach surf or go boating on the Indian River: Silently and gracefully skimming on peaceful water in a kayak or on a paddleboard is a local pastime. Watch manatees up close at water level and see a variety of waterfowl and wildlife. From secluded lagoons and estuaries to the ocean, kayaking, paddleboarding, and boating adventures await.
Surfing: National Geographic rated NSB as one of the World’s 20 best surf towns. With 13 miles of beach, 300 surfable days a year and warm water, NSB is center of high performance surfing.
