Newly redecorated ocean front condo. Spacious two-bedroom, two-bath ocean view condominium. Located directly on the car free portion of the best beach in Florida - New Smyrna Beach! NSB is where central Florida locals go to find the best, least touristy and uncrowded beach.

This is a fourth floor unit with a large balcony directly overlooking the ocean, pool, and beautifully landscaped courtyard. Castle Reef has the nicest grounds of any comparable condo complex in NSB.

The complex also offers lighted tennis courts, heated Olympic-sized pool, kiddie pool, shuffleboard, gazebo, clubhouse, and grills. There is also the option to rent the clubhouse for private parties.

Enjoy your morning breakfast routine on the large balcony directly overlooking the ocean. Or wind down with a glass of wine at the end of the day to enjoy the fantastic view of the sunset.

We recently upgraded to our own dedicated WiFi and no longer share Castle Reef's wireless connection.

Walk across the street to the market or restaurant. There are many other great restaurants a short distance away.

We are located about an hour from Disney, Universal, and the Orlando International Airport and just minutes from Daytona Speedway.

We have a king-sized bed, two twin beds, large flat-screen TV, and a gorgeous place to stay!

About Bill Overbeek

We currently reside in Longwood, FL and have been going to New Smyrna Beach for years. We love the area and the convenience to all the restaurants, shopping, and attractions.

Bill Overbeek purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bill Overbeek chose Florida Central East

It is family friendly and convenient to all of the Orlando attractions (i.e., Disney, Universal, Sea World, Daytona, St. Augustine). The grounds at Castle Reef are very nice, well maintained with lush foliage and beautiful landscaping, among the nicest properties in the area. Our unit is ideally located on the 4th floor, with a direct ocean view looking out over the grounds.

What makes this condo unique

Castle Reef is on the No-Drive part of New Smyrna Beach, making it safer for families and with no vehicles obstructing the view. New Smyrna is ideally located, a little south of Daytona (the world's most famous) Beach but much less crowded, and it's the closest beach to the Orlando attractions. This is the beach where Orlando locals go.

Nice Visit

  • 4 of 5

This condo has everything you would need and some things you didn't think to bring. Ann and I (Jim) try to go somewhere every other month.

Yes, we are retired and try to make the most of it. The condo is located within walking distance of restaurants and has a great beach. Down the street about a mile or two are many good places to eat. Orlando is not far by car. "NICE PLACE" Jim and Ann (Sarasota)

Good

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay with our kids. The condo was clean and matched the pictures put on the site. The complex is well maintained and the maintenance staff is courteous. The only downside is the wifi provided by the resort is outdated the connection is good but given a lot of people plug it in is very hard during the days of use! We enjoyed the beach and the surroundings .... to discover!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry you had issues with the internet/WiFi. We recently had our cable company install a dedicated internet/WiFi router in our unit. Hopefully this resolves the issue.

The view!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view, super beach. Just enough waves to keep it interesting, but not too much so the kids can have fun. The condo had everything required, and the view from the 4th floor is worth every penny. Only thing that could be improved it the internet speed. It is not really dependable.

Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Michel. We just had our cable company install a dedicated internet/WiFi router in our condo this past weekend, so that should resolve the issue. Please look us up again if you get the NSB area again!

Great location and view. Our family was very happy being so close to the beach and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing. Close to the pool, beach and convenience of stores to cook and eat out was perfect. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter stayed with her friend for a week in New Smyrna. I found them this condo to rent and it was an amazing trip. The girls had an incredible time and thought the condo was simply perfect. It was clean, beautifully decorated, spacious and so close to the beach. The owner was a true pleasure to work with and I would absolutely recommend this property to family and friends. In fact, my daughter's friend told her parents about it and they will be considering it in the future.

Castle Reef is a good choice.

  • 4 of 5

We are frequent visitors to NSB and know the beach well. We only stayed 3 days and weren't interested in a high-end condo. This unit is priced below most and is priced appropriately. Many in Castle Reef have had substantial improvements within the past few years. It's time for this one to be upgraded. It was clean and comfortable and the owners clearly try to make you feel welcomed. If a complete renovation is not in the cards, a few things will be nice, like new patio furniture, new mirrors and bath fans, dining area chairs and a new master bedroom mattress. Finally, if there is a way to incorporate wi-fi with the cable TV, rather than the current wi-fi configuration, guests would be happier.

Regardless of these comments which are intended to be constructive, this unit is a very good alternative to pricier locations.
