About the property

2/2 Oceanfront With Enclosed Garage And Secure Wifi

Stay in this beautiful 2 bedroom, two bath direct oceanfront and rest assured that you will have a comfortable and relaxing vacation at Florida’s “Best Beach” according to Florida Monthly magazine.

Our unit is on the 6th floor, a particularly good spot for pelican, dolphin and people watching on the east, and for viewing sunsets and the activity of the North Causeway bridge and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west. It is spacious, approximately 1250 square feet inside with high ceilings and walk-in closets, plus a 250 square foot, half-moon shaped balcony on the beachside that faces northeast, so it is always shady and breezy. We are set up to sleep up to 4 adults and 2 children, with a king bed in the master, queen in the guest room and an air mattress.

Our unit features new carpet, paint, blinds, interior doors, lighting, flat screen TV’s, a Blue Ray player, top-of-the-line mattresses and secure Wi-Fi. Fully furnished down to linens, hair dryer and beach chairs and toys, our goal is to ensure a carefree stay for our guests. Also included with your rental is a private garage space with electric opener, so you can park your car and forget it if you choose.

The Golden Arms is an 8-story, 2 elevator secure building with key card entries, on-site management, and an extremely safe location. It features an expansive gated ocean side patio area with heated pool, lounge chairs in and out of the sun, tables with umbrellas, plush lawn for games of catch, a shuffle board court, a putt-putt golf green, freshwater showers for when you exit the beach, restrooms and a community room.

Orlando, Jacksonville and Daytona Beach airports are convenient. Our favorite is Sanford International, 45 minutes away with incredible deals on Allegiant Airlines.

It is approximately one hour to Disney World, Universal, Sea World and all other Orlando attractions, 45 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center, 20 minutes from the Daytona International Speedway and an easy day trip to historical St. Augustine and the Outlet Malls. But why leave when everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation is right here at the “End of the Rainbow”?

*For the continued enjoyment of our family and guests, we ask that you respect our request for no smoking of any kind inside the unit, no pets and no more than 4 adults and 2 children as overnight guests.

About Pam Westervelt

We both have a longstanding love for Florida and currently reside in Ormond Beach. Andy is a DeLand native with fond memories of New Smyrna Beach that date back to childhood. Pam, a Louisiana native and former resident of the west coast of Florida, was skeptical about the Atlantic side until Andy introduced her to New Smyrna Beach. It was love at first sight. Our hope is to always maintain a connection here.

Pam Westervelt purchased this condo in 2013

Why Pam Westervelt chose New Smyrna Beach

We enjoy riding our bicycles along our favorite stretch of beach between Flagler Avenue and the jetty at Ponce Inlet. Every time we would pass by the graceful and stately Golden Arms, we would admire the impeccable grounds and dream of how cool it would be to experience life there. Our dream came true and we literally found the “End of the Rainbow” off our balcony! We are excited for our guests to make new memories in this special place.

What makes this condo unique

We love this stretch of beach and the laid back vibe of NSB. How many places do you know of that you can enjoy without a car! We love to check the tide clock and go with the flow. If the mood strikes, we can get to Daytona or Orlando in a flash. Some of our regular stops include the Beacon for breakfast, Breaker’s for burgers, Norwood’s, SoNapa and That’s Amore for wonderful dinners, Manny’s Pizza for takeout (the BEST Greek Salads!) and Heavenly for ice cream. The Riverview Grill for sunset and music combined with spectacular sunset, dolphin and North Causeway Intracoastal views is a favorite in the evenings.

Will return

  • 5 of 5

We are almost afraid to say how much we loved being here because we want there always to be room for us to return! Pam and Andy were wonderful, as were Deanna and Alfonso. The view from both porches and the sound of the ocean were spectacular. Watching the different birds and dolphins while having coffee was a great way to start our day. There are many interesting things in the area to do and see. Lots of yummy food within walking distance as well as all the shops on Flagler and canal street. The beach was perfect for long strolls and collecting shells. Felt like our home away from home.

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, beautifully decorated condo! Loved the view from the very large balcony. Nice and quiet and a short walk to the local restaurants and shops. The pool was never crowded and crystal clear. You can lounge in the pool and view the ocean. What a great place!

Don't miss out!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a relaxing and rejuvinating week we had here at Pam and Andy's condo. The beautiful sunrise that was viewable from the master bedroom balcony or the living room balcony was like a breath of fresh air every morning- while soaking in the sound of the crashing waves. It made waking up early a priority for me just so I would not miss the beautiful sight. We enjoyed long walks on the beach and late night swims in the well maintained pool. Our week here could not have been more perfect. This area was quiet, yet friendly; laid back, yet within walking distance to Flagler Ave that offers a variety of activities. This was the perfect place to unwind from the day to day activities of our normal lives. Pam and Andy have a beautiful place and they make sure that from check in to check out you are totally taken care of. Our stay was one that we will not easily forget...

Live like a local, vacation like a tourist

  • 5 of 5

New Smyrna is Florida without pretension. If you're looking for wall to wall tourist traps, interminable restaurant waits, and bumper to bumper traffic then this is NOT the place for you. The vibe here is laid back and is exactly what a vacation should be. Park your car, as a handful of restaurants, bars, and shopping are all within walking distance. Wake up as early or as late as you'd like- the beach is uncrowded and wrestling fellow tourists for a spot completely unnecessary. The Atlantic water is cool and clear, the sand sugar white and clean. Don't want to sit still? Bike the beach or explore Flagler Ave. Want to range farther out? Daytona is only 20 minutes away, Orlando a little over an hour. The condo is well kept, tastefully decorated and a great jumping off point for the beach, the pool or whatever else the day may bring. The balcony provides an incredible view of the beach and the water beyond. This is a vacation destination where the reality matches the fantasy.

Wellington, Colorado

the perfect vacation home with lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 and were able to get 4 condos for the four families who came from all over for a great family reunion. The accommodations are beautiful, the beds comfortable, and the proximity to the beach makes multiple visits a day like a walk in your own back yard! Evenings at the pool, a late night crab hunt, early morning beach walks, and lots of visiting back and for made the vacation ideal for us. We'd recommend this condo highly and would happily return. Thank you Pam and Andy!

The Golden Arms is located along a beautiful stretch of beach on the north side of New Smyrna Beach, Florida. A perfect destination in itself for building sandcastles, surfing, playing or fishing in the surf, swimming in the pool by the ocean, or biking or shelling along the beach. Parasailing, kayaking, deep sea fishing and golfing opportunities abound within the community.

An important feature that sets Golden Arms apart is s close proximity to Flagler Avenue. Just an easy walk away, Flagler Avenue is the beachside main drag. It has an 'old Florida' appeal that most other coastal cities lost long ago. It is a true seaside beach street featuring a mix of locally owned restaurants, diners, coffee shops, ice cream stands, galleries, bars, unique shops, and bicycle rentals, without a chain name in sight. The Flagler Avenue Merchants Association sponsors Art Walks, Wine Walks, Food Trucks, and Festivals on a regular basis, giving residents and visitors an excuse to party in the streets! In the evening, catch a set of live music at one of the many bars, or grab a sunset dinner at Riverview Grill and watch dolphins and boats coming under the pink North Causeway bridge.

If you choose to leave this bucolic setting, Golden Arms is approximately one hour from Disney World, Universal, Sea World and all other Orlando attractions, an easy day trip to historic St. Augustine and the Outlet Malls, less than 45 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center and only 20 minutes from the Daytona International Speedway.
