About the Property

2 bedroom, 1 bath home, close to beach; easy walk to stores, restaurants.

Welcome to our comfortable getaway just a short stroll from the ocean's edge in New Smyrna Beach and only a 10-minute walk from a supermarket, restaurants and stores. Walk or drive to Flagler Avenue for its funky shops and nightlife.

Guests have plenty of room to spread out in the newly renovated 1,010-square-foot of living space, with free wireless internet, central air/heat, ceiling fans in each bedroom and a new screened porch. You'll find everything they need to feel at home. The house is one level, with only one low step at entry doorways. It's a dog-friendly home, with ceramic tiling and a fully fenced and shaded backyard. Please contact us about bringing a dog; prior approval is necessary and there is an additional fee. Sorry, but no cats are allowed. Two adult-sized bicycles and one medium-sized child's bike are available upon advance request.

Located in a quiet residential area, the home is close to New Smyrna's attractions but secluded enough to hear the ocean's waves at night.

The living room has comfortable seating, a big-screen cable TV, a DVD player and selection of DVDs, books, cards and board games. The roomy kitchen and adjacent dining room, with seating for six, make it easy to prepare food and gather for meals or for board games. You bring the food and we'll supply everything else: dishes, glassware, pots, pans, utensils, condiments, cleaning supplies, a dishwasher and small and large appliances. A wide counter with two barstools separates the kitchen from the dining room.

This house has an attached carport and an indoor laundry room with washer, dryer and utility sink. The bathroom has a tub with shower, plus basic toiletries and a hair dryer. An outdoor shower makes it easy to wash off sand from the beach. All linens, bath towels and beach towels are provided, as are a beach umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards and beach toys. An ironing board and iron also are provided.

There are two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed, cable TV, and an antique desk that converts to a lit vanity table. The second bedroom has twin beds plus an Ikea chair that folds out to a cot if needed for a child.

A favorite spot at day's end is the roomy screened porch off the dining room, which overlooks the shaded backyard and its large bay oak trees.

A short boardwalk at the end of the street takes you over the dunes to the ocean's edge. Or, if you want, you can pack surfboards, boogie boards, fishing poles, picnic lunch and other gear in the car and drive right onto our smooth-surfaced beach from the nearby Third Avenue or Flagler Avenue beach entrances ($10 daily fee). The beach has a gentle incline into the water, making it easy to wade, swim or ride the waves.

Car: Recommended

New Smyrna Beach offers water sports, fishing, boat and kayak rentals, unique shops, fine restaurants, bicycling, nature walks, music and art festivals, the Little Theatre playhouse, art galleries and exhibits. Visitors can learn about the city's historic legacy as one of the oldest settlements in North America at the New Smyrna Museum of History. Visitors in the spring and summer can head for the beach at dark to look for giant sea turtles laying their eggs and hatchlings scurrying to the sea. At the north end of the island is pet-friendly Smyrna Dunes Park on Ponce Inlet. Just south of the city are the quiet beaches of Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000-acre pristine park set between the ocean and the Indian River. Indian River Lagoon Park offers a scenic trail and fishing dock on the banks of the Indian River.

Day trips abound. It takes little more than an hour to reach Orlando's theme parks, including Sea World, Universal Studios and Walt Disney World. Historic St. Augustine and Kennedy Space Center are an hour's drive away. Only 20 minutes away is Daytona Beach and its famous Speedway.

About 35 minutes away are cool spring waters where you can swim, snorkel and scuba dive: Blue Spring State Park, where manatees gather in the winter, and DeLeon Springs State Park, where a rustic restaurant lets you cook your pancakes on a table grill.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Ray and Geri Throne moved to Central Florida from the Northeast over 40 years ago and have never regretted it. Geri, a journalist and writer, spent her childhood summers at the Jersey Shore and never outgrew her passion for the ocean. Ray is a financial advisor and an avid fishing enthusiast. They both appreciate the freedom that Florida's climate provides for enjoying the outdoors.

Why the Owner Chose New Smyrna Beach, FL, USA:
New Smyrna is a laid-back beach town with wide, gently-sloping beaches and ample charm and history. Ray and Geri feel lucky to have found this house. They love its restful atmosphere and location near the water and the heart of town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is close enough to the beach to return for food or drink without missing more than a few minutes of sun and surf. An unexpected bonus has been its tranquil backyard, especially in the early morning and late afternoon. Its large scrub oak trees, bent over by the ocean's steady breezes, shade the yard and attract flocks of birds.
