About the Property

A beautiful historic get-away just steps to the pool, river & scenic downtown.

Welcome to our charming Carriage House in the heart of the New Smyrna Beach historic district and a three-minute walk to scenic downtown Canal Street for shopping, art galleries, antiques, bars and restaurants. You'll feel like you're staying in an elegant B & B -- only with more privacy! ALSO AVAILABLE for rent on our property next door is THE COASTAL CABANA, a quaint and well appointed one bedroom bungalow that sleeps two (one couple) at VRBO listing https://www.vrbo.com/893313. Renting both The Carriage House + The Coastal Cabana would be ideal for three couples, a large family or group of friends.

THE CARRIAGE HOUSE is situated on a long lot with mature oak trees and tucked away for quiet & private enjoyment. Large parking pad and long driveway provide rare premium parking for boat or RV. Includes the use of private swimming pool, pool floats, heated outdoor shower, gas grill, bicycles, boogie boards, free wireless Internet, cable television and a private backyard area with fire pit. Central air/heat and ceiling fans throughout. Just a few short steps to the RIVER for fishing or kayaking and a continuous sidewalk to Flagler Avenue and BEACH (bicycle 10 minutes or drive 4 minutes) and nearby boat rental and public boat ramp (2 minutes). There are two nearby public golf courses (5 minute drive): New Smyrna Beach Municipal Golf Course and Hidden Lakes Golf Course. Gorgeous hardwood floors and open floor plan with 12 ft. cathedral ceilings. French doors open up to a second bedroom / office with a queen sleeper sofa and large desk & desk chair. The Sun Room overlooks the lovely tropical grounds, ancient oak trees, barbecue barn & pool with a bar counter / bar stools and eat-in dining area.


We provide all of the standard creature comforts: flat screen cable TV, small and large appliances, dishwasher, books, cards, board games, dishes, glassware, pots, pans, cutlery, Tupperware, utensils, cleaning supplies, basic toiletries, hair dryer, iron, ironing board, vacuum cleaner, full length mirror, bath towels & wash cloths, beach towels & beach chairs. There is a spacious storage room with washer and dryer.

The Carriage House is one level, however access does require walking up one flight of stairs. Please contact us about bringing a dog; prior approval is necessary and there is an additional fee.

We suggest an easy, fun day by packing a picnic lunch, surf boards, boogie boards, fishing poles and other gear in the car and drive right onto our smooth-surfaced beach from the nearby Flagler Avenue beach entrance. The beach has a gentle incline into the water, making it easy to wade, swim or ride the waves.

We will make every effort to create a get-away experience that is charming and memorable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Deb & Tom Exum are both Florida natives and have a keen understanding of local history and places of interest in central Florida. Deb is an accomplished musician and vocalist and writes jingles for radio and television. She enjoys writing all styles of music and will perform for guests upon request. Deb also has a corporate background serving as a former VP of Marketing & Sales in Higher Education. She enjoys bicycling, walking, gardening and cooking. Dr. Tom Exum is a retired chiropractor and a former President of the Florida Chiropractic Association. Currently, he has a national business consulting practice. Tom was a former college and pro baseball player. After a baseball injury, it was a chiropractor that got Tom back onto the field. That experience led Tom to Palmer Chiropractic College and ultimately his life work as a chiropractor. Tom is an incredible cook and enjoys creating healthy new meals on the barbecue grill and in the kitchen.

Why the Owner Chose New Smyrna Beach, FL, USA:
As youngsters, we both had fond memories spending weekends in New Smyrna Beach with our families. As working professionals, we'd escape to our favorite beach town whenever possible. After years of living in the hustle and bustle of Orlando, we decided to make a permanent move to New Smyrna Beach in 2005. We have always had a special fondness for historic homes and wanted to be within close walking distance to shops & restaurants. We preferred the charm of the downtown historic district allowing us quick access to the beach. For over one year, we looked at numerous properties in the area. The home we fell in love with was not for sale -- a story book 1920 historic beauty with a Carriage House on the property. One morning while once again driving past the home, we decided to take a chance and knocked on the front door. The owner appeared, allowed us to take a tour, and we had a signed contract within 48 hours. The rest as they say 'is history' in more ways than one! Our home and property has been featured in the annual 'Christmas Parade of Homes'. We appreciate our short morning walks to Canal Street Creamery for coffee and the wonderful array of restaurants, bars and shops along Canal Street. It's an easy and fun bicycle ride to the beach and a recommended sunrise destination. We often refer to our neighborhood as 'Mayberry on the Beach'.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The Carriage House features hardwood floors and a cathedral ceiling with rustic wood ceiling beams. The tropical grounds and wealth of oak trees create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. Feel free to tow along your boat or RV. The expansive driveway and parking pad offers premium parking. The screened in swimming pool offers a cool splash after a hot day at the beach. The heated outdoor shower is ideal for rinsing off the salt and sand. Take a leisurely stroll down to the neighborhood Dolphin View Restaurant for some fried shrimp, oysters or a fresh fish sandwich. Or, take a quick walk or bicycle ride down to Canal Street for a beer or grub at the Half Wall Sports Bar. Little's Drug Company has been in operation since 1922 and is a throw back to simpler times. Little's Soda Fountain and Restaurant offers a full breakfast and lunch menu and the best ice cream sundaes around. The Golden Biscuit Restaurant is a traditional favorite for breakfast and lunch. For some great live music and an evening of fun, visit Yellow Dog Eats. Jason's Deli is one of our favorites because the menu offers something for everyone. Joe's Sub Shop makes great hamburgers! The Cork & Bottle features a selection of fine wines and delicious cold draft beers. The small kitchen serves up some great meals including Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs, Mahi Mahi Rockefeller and Cheese Plates. All of this, plus shopping, antiques, art galleries and much, much more right on nearby Canal Street -- a three minute walk.
