A little Hidden Treasure

Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Beachside Home: Come and relax in New Smyrna Beach. Stay in our charming three bedroom, one bath home right across the street from the beach. Friends can't believe how much room there is in this little gem for up to 6 people. When you stay in our home you can truly relax. Eat out at a different fabulous restaurant every night or stay in and cook your own gourmet meals in the handy double oven. There is a flat screen TV and a DVD player in the main living room and each bedroom has its own TV but you came for the beach right? And it is just across the street. Walk across the street and you are at the wooden walkway that takes you out onto the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

Back at the house you will find a queen size bed, a full size bed and two twins. Large closets let you put away your suitcases so you don't feel like you're living out of them. Linens and towels are provided. If you don't need the three bedrooms then we have a back apartment with two bedrooms and one bath that was just remodeled. It has a queen size bed and its own stackable washer/dryer. The kitchen is fully loaded with dishwasher, microwave, disposal, etc. Just perfect for a couple's winter retreat. We have families who rent the front unit with the three bedrooms and then the grandparents rent the back. Everyone gets to be together but still have their own space to relax in. Gather around the fire pit for a cold brew or glass of wine.

About Laurie or Bruce LaSota

We decided many years ago that palm trees and sunshine were our favorite vacation environment so why not live like that full time? We left the cold north and moved south and here is where we raised our family. While our home state of Michigan is beautiful year round with wonderful changes of the seasons we preferred to leave the cold and gloomy days of winter. So we get it when people say they can hardly wait to get to New Smyrna Beach. You get a chance to refuel and relax. That is what we feel by the ocean.

Why Laurie or Bruce LaSota chose Florida Central East

We love this little house. When you drive over the bridge to get to New Smyrna Beach you feel like you're entering another space in time. Just seeing the boats moored off the sandbars puts you in a relaxed frame of mind. We wanted a place that our children and grandchildren could come visit with us in the future and just enjoy spending time together.

What makes this house unique

This property is just across the street from the beach. We are located on a drive on section of the beach and if you have little ones in your family you probably travel with a lot of stuff. Just load your car and drive over and set up in front of our walkover. If anyone has to run home for anything it is just across the street. The locals have got it down though. They travel light and you see them walking over with just a towel and a boogie board and they are good to go. Once you're at the beach you can sit back and watch the beautiful Atlantic Ocean mesmerize you with her cascading sets of waves or get in, get wet and try some boogie boarding. There is nothing like a day at the shore.

Great vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 mos. and really enjoyed our stay. It's across the street from the beach and watching the sunrise and walks on the beach were great. It is close to Flagler and other local restaurants and popular spots. The place is clean, nicely decorated and well supplied with everything you need to make your visit comfortable. Bruce and Laurie are very responsive to your needs. We would recommend this place for a family vacation. The two apartments are close for family get togethers but totally private if another party is sharing your vacation.

Private spot close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being able to walk or ride the bike for visits to the beach, quick shopping trips a lunchtime snack or ice cream on Flagler Ave. Bruce and Laurie had everything ready for our arrival and were very accommodating. Small but cozy. We enjoyed the wine walks, the Tastings at the Courtyard the art festival on Canal St. and the many restaurants tucked in on Flagler and Canal... Would recommend

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for 3 months, ending March 31st 2016 and really enjoyed it. The house had been recently renovated and very roomy. It was very clean with modern appliances. It was all and more as advertised. The beds provided a good nights sleep which has not always been the case in other rentals we were at. The great part was that it was located directly across from the beach where we took long walks. Shopping and restaurants are easily accessible by walking or vehicle. Both Laurie and Bruce (owners) were more than accommodating in our needs, even purchasing an electric kettle so we Canadians could have our "hot" tea. If it were not for the exchange rate at present we would certainly be going back. We would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to rent in New Smyrna Beach.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at "A little hidden treasure" in NSB. It was a perfect location right across the street from the beach. The house was very clean and well decorated. My parents rented the back of the house while we stayed in the front. It was a perfect family vacation. We each had our own space with all the amenities. Norwoods is a great place to eat. Also Flagler Ave has adorable little shops. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in New Smyrna. Laurie and Bruce were also very helpful in suggesting places and readily available for any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend staying at "A little hidden treasure!"

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful owners! This home had everything we needed for a relaxing retreat. It is a short walk to the beach and has a great front porch to sit and relax. a fire pit @ night and tiki torches made for a fun get together in the evenings with friends. Close to grocery, pharmacy& restaurants. If you have a bike you can travel the beachside. Decorated in relaxing beach colors and comfy furniture with all the amenities you need. We will stay here again.

In New Smyrna Beach every weekend is an occasion. From art shows to jazz festivals there is always something the locals are celebrating. Flager Avenue is home to some of the most unique shops and hangouts. Stroll around the Avenue and enjoy the sights and activity that makes New Smyrna Beach such a great place to vacation.
