Overview

About the property

Summer 2016 Haven!

This newly remodeled house is your perfect beach time getaway. The ocean is steps from your front patio. You could throw a Frisbee into the ocean from the front lounging area. You have your own private walk over where you can sit to enjoy coffee, read a magazine, or watch passerby's as they walk on the beach. This beach house is located on a private stretch of the beach that does not allow cars so the only sound you'll hear is the ocean.

The house is located in an upscale neighborhood with million dollar houses flanking each side. The inside has been completely overhauled. The owner recently purchased this two story duplex and has replaced all windows, sliding glass doors, the air conditioning unit, most appliances, and the flooring throughout. The downstairs main living area has a mounted flat screen TV with full Uverse cable, including a sports and entertainment package (i.e. millions of channels!). The house also has free WIFI internet. One bedroom has a king size Sleep Number bed. The guest room has two sets of brand new bunk beds. It comes fully equipped with towels, linens, dishes, and cutlery. Just bring your bathing suit and flip flops! The downstairs unit has a full laundry room with a brand new washer and dryer.

The location is superb. You are 2 minutes from the famous J.B.'s Fishcamp Bar and Restaurant. J.B.'s has fresh seafood and live music almost every night. You are also less than 2 minutes from the intracoastal waterway - think kayaking, manatee watching, and fishing! You are about 10 minutes to Flagler Ave, which is the main strip in New Smyrna Beach. Flagler Ave now touts several new trendy restaurants, luxurious spas, and unique shopping. The place is hopping all year long. And, of course, you are only one hour from Orlando (that is, if you ever want to leave the beach!). Orlando is home to upscale shopping, a culinary explosion of restaurants, and some of the best attractions in the world.

The upstairs unit is owned by owners' parents/in-laws, and they currently do not rent their unit out.

Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about this beach house! I was looking for a quick family getaway for my little clan of 3 children, puppy, and husband and this was the PERFECT spot!! The house had everything we could've needed or wanted and we literally were steps away from the ocean. My oldest wanted to watch the sunrise every morning, which we were able to do from the sliding glass doors of the house or from the top of the boardwalk headed to the sand. My middle son wanted to boogie board all day long...easily accomplished. And my youngest needed a quiet retreat to rest in between the fun the sun, sand, and surf has to offer...not a problem with the comfy digs of this beach house! Overall, a perfect getaway and one we will definitely plan to frequent often!!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is awesome. My family and I had such a great time. We were expecting to have to rough it on a few things due to the cost but we were pleasantly surprised. The owner is great. She communicated quickly and often. The home is well equipped with everything you need, not just the bare essentials. We truly felt like we were staying at a friends home. The place is not a standard vacation rental. This is Kaely's (Owner) home away from home. It had everything a small family would need to go and enjoy the beach. We have small children so the kids toys were a huge hit.

We are not newbies in the vacation rental world and always go into homes understanding that they maybe treated as a business, which usually means just enough to be better than a hotel. This is not one of those places. You will feel comfortable here. You can actually relax and enjoy the vacation.

A small list of the best parts of this home:

- Beach access is so close the waves can overpower conversation

- The access is private and beach is clean and inviting

- The home is very cute, great style throughout

- The home is very clean. Easy to maintain cleanliness with the tile floors

- The beds are comfortable and furnishings are nice

- The furniture is comfortable

- Very private with green hedge blocking road and walking path

- Little traffic and friendly neighbors

All in all we really enjoyed our stay and will add this to our list of revisits! Thanks Kaely for a great time.

Comfortable Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed at this comfortable bottom duplex unit for 10 days and found it to be very comfortable and well appointed. The king sized bed in the master was a plus. Having the beach just steps away made for a nice summer break.

Cozy cottage with beach steps away

  • 3 of 5

Overall my wife and I were happy with the rental. Although the bathrooms are small and the kitchen outdated, the beach is steps away and is very uncrowded. We have family that lives close and with parties more than 3 people it was hard to serve/store food with the provided dishes. Master bedroom does have a sleep number king sized bed which makes it very comfortable to sleep.

Over-head unit is weekend home for renters parents but they are friendly.

Restaurants are a pleasant 10 minute drive into down-town New Symrna as well as the grocery store. Overall we were pleased with our stay and really enjoyed the low population on the beach. We felt like it was our own.

Magical Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful place in a magical location. Walk the beach for miles, visit the National Seashore, shop at local boutiques or the farmer's market, attend the local theater, eat at excellent restaurants, this place has it all! The landlords are friendly and helpful, the facilities are very clean and fresh, I wish I could have stayed longer.
