On the north side of Ocean Reef Villas with amazing views of the beach. There are only 48 units which makes this a quieter more relaxing environment for family trips or a long weekend getaway.
Our Condo is right in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. A beautiful artsy, small beach community with a small town feel to fit the small town it is.
Flagler Avenue, about a mile north, is full of boutique shops and small local restaurants and bars with most featuring live music.
Canal street on the mainland (about 3 miles), we are on an island, features more boutique shops, restaurants, a local brewing company and some antique shops.
For antiquing and rare finds we sport many thrift stores, all within 5 miles of your condo. Try Jeff's Antiques on US1 (mainland) almost directly under the SR44 bridge as it crosses US1. The Antique Mall in the New Smyrna Beach shopping center on US1 slightly south of SR44 features booths from many collectors. The shopping center also has a thrift store and a great little restaurant, McKenna's Place.
For a taste of old Florida, exit your condo and drive straight down A1A (south) to JB's Fish Camp for some great seafood on the river.
Dolphin View, The Garlic, Norwords, Off the Hook, New Smyrna Steakhouse, and more will have your palate watering.

New Smyrna beach was founded in 1767. For history buffs we have Old Fort park and Sugar-mill Ruins.
From the Visit Florida website, 'Some historians believe the artsy, seaside city of New Smyrna Beach is the original St. Augustine, the Spanish-colonized town in Northeast Florida known as the nation‘s oldest city. While claims that New Smyrna predates St. Augustine delight or frustrate history buffs, depending on whom you talk to, there's no way to prove it true or false more than 500 years after the Spanish first stepped foot in Florida.
What intrigues historians is the 40-by-80-foot coquina ruins, reminiscent of St. Augustine’s Castillo de San Marcos, that overlook the Intracoastal Waterway near New Smyrna’s downtown. At first glance, the ruins appear to be those of a Spanish fort, but credit for the structure is generally given to a Scottish physician named Andrew Turnbull.
Dr. Turnbull colonized the area for England in 1768. He came to Florida by ship, bringing with him nearly 1,500 Greeks, Corsicans, Italians and Minorcans in hopes of establishing a new colony to grow indigo, sugar cane, hemp and other crops.'
So come sit back and relax or get out and explore New Smyrna Beach
