Oceanwalk is a gated community with secured garage-covered parking for 1 car, two clubhouse complexes complete with saunas, exercise rooms, heated pools and spas, and barbecue areas. The unit is centrally located, not 100 yards from either clubhouse. There is also a mini putting green, lighted tennis and basketball court, shuffleboard courts, bocce ball court and a nature preserve with a walking trail and many other items too numerous to mention. The unit is only steps away from the crosswalk across A1a to the gorgeous no-traffic beach.

Oceanwalk condominiums, well-regarded for the finest amenities in new smyrna, are located on the south beach area of new smyrna beach. The complex is located across the street from the beach and faces the atlantic ocean. The southern location provides the best of both worlds, away from the hustle and bustle but minutes from dining and entertainment to the north and from canaveral national seashore to the south.

There are three golf courses within 15 minutes and six within a half-hour's drive. Deep sea, pier, and flats fishing are also available. New smyrna beach has been named one of the best 100 small art towns in america. The town truly has something for everyone, and Oceanwalk is among its very nicest communities.

About Rich Scott

I'm Rich Scott. Annie and I have been together 44 years pretty much since the day we met. We've celebrated 38 years of marriage this April. Rounding out the family are two perfectly imperfect adult children, Richie IV, 33, and Sarah 29 and Annie's sister Robi, 44, who now lives in a group residence for developmentally disabled adults.

Annie is a Physical Therapist and is Director of Rehabilitation at Dr. Susan Smith McKinney Nursing and Rehab Center in Brooklyn. I'm a financial analyst and work for a financial technology boutique in SoHo, Manhattan. Annie and I are empty nesters living in the same home where we raised our kids. We settled here in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, four blocks from where Annie grew up, after living in several far-flung areas of Brooklyn with a stint in Cleveland. Funny how that works.

Rich Scott purchased this condo in 2014

Why Rich Scott chose New Smyrna Beach

Annie and I found Ocean Walk and New Smyrna Beach when we were looking at potential places to retire. Annie's brother and sister-in-law have a unit right across the street in the same community; and her sister and brother-in-law live in Jacksonville, less than 2 hours away. So it is an ideal location. We like central Florida because while the weather is usually pleasant, there a more variety and less oppressive heat than further south. Friends and family are very important to us and with three bedrooms we cannot wait to share our home with visitors. While we move toward retirement, we spend as much time as we can in our new home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Nsb has a lot to offer: great beaches, wonderful flora and fauna, funk, and a vibrant nightlife. And ocean walk is ideally located to enjoy all of it.

One of the things we like best is that it is a tourist destination without the tourist town, honky-tonk feel. It's the anti daytona beach but close enough to take advantage of the finer elements of daytona and the surrounding area.

Another thing that annie and i have noticed is that everyone seems pretty happy; this runs across the richest to the poorer. I guess when you have fair weather and great surroundings, you don't need a whole lot for it to be enough.

Truly perfect for our family trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our needs: plenty of space for gathering, fully equipped kitchen, easy beach access, plenty of community amenities, ideal location close to but out of the hustle and bustle. It was effortless working with Rich and we really appreciate him sharing his home.

Water all over the floor when we got in the unit. Leaking freezer. Standing water on the stove top. No dource found. We were promised the freezer would be fixed on Tuesday at the earliest because Monday was a holiday. They never came and fixed it. We had to evacuate because of the hurricane. We asked for a refund for time lost. We were told it was not mandatory evacuation so probably not. However, it became mandatory about 12 hours after we left. Could not open and shut one of the patio doors. Missing TV remotes for one of the bedrooms so unable to use the TV. The unit itself was very nice. Very well decorated and clean. Kitchen was well stocked.

Owner's Response: I cannot explain the water on the stove top; that is inexcusable and I can only apologize. Regarding the fridge, we were at the condo up until a day before you and had the same problem. Bob came and cleared an ice dam and we had no more leakage so we thought it was fixed. Sorry if it wasn’t. Bob told me that he came to the door with a replacement and was told by your guests that “everything is fine.” The patio doors were sticky. Like I said we were there right until you arrived so there was no time for repairs. The locks, rollers, and tracks on all three doors have been replaced along with new screens. I’m disappointed with your characterization of your request for a refund. First you did in fact receive a refund. Second the managers could not agree to a refund without consulting me. I would never deny such a request: Last year we had the same situation and I compensated our guest for lost time without question. You and I had several fruitful direct conversations as you were booking the place. Don’t you think the fair thing would have been to call me directly before penalizing us?

If you love the BEACH, this is THE place for YOU!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Rich and Annie's "slice of paradise" September 10 through October 8th, and loved it. We live just 60 miles away in Orlando but have "gone to the beach" at NSB for many, many years. It is a very relaxed, kicked back beach town, the locals and visitors we found very friendly and no shortage of restaurants with exceptional food. The condo itself was really great, the 3 bedrooms gave us plenty of room as we had several guests for a few days at a time to share the experience. There is a pocket door that closes off the 2nd and 3rd bedroom and guest bathroom giving it a real "suite" feel for the guests. Everything we could want or need was in the well equipped kitchen, we enjoyed using it for several gourmet dinners. The condo location was in between the two pools, so the water aerobics was at one and we had our afternoon swim in the other! There are many amenities that we just did not get to use but we did use one of the 4 gas grills! The Oceanwalk staff were very helpful and answered all of our many questions promptly and offered a number of great suggestions on restaurants and "things to do" nearby. This was our first time renting a condo anywhere and are already planning on when to go back and of course it will be at Rich and Annie's "slice of paradise"

Comfortable, relaxing, beautiful condo in a great complex with easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rich and Annie's during the last week of June. Our plan was to have a relaxing vacation and check out some of what NSB has to offer, as it was our first time visiting. We got what we came for and then some! The unit is clean, homey, and has everything you could need or ask for - a full kitchen, master suite with Jacuzzi tub, and access to the building recreation centers. The rec centers each have a gym, a pool, and one has a theater that can be booked for private parties. It was honestly hard to leave such a comfortable space some days. When we did, however, we experienced much of Florida's natural beauty. The beach across the street (free chair and umbrella rentals at the rec center!) was perfect. Down the road is Canaveral National Seashore, which features awesome ocean views and fun trails for low key hiking. At JB's Fish Camp (a short drive away), we rented a kayak and spent an hour floating in a cove with nearly a dozen manatees! It was an incredible experience to be so close to them, and they were surprisingly friendly!

With the fully functional kitchen, we did a lot of cooking at home. When we did go out, we were not disappointed. C's Waffles and Bagel World were our favorite breakfast spots. For dinner there were no shortage of choices, but we personally loved the pizza at Touch of Italy and the ocean front seating at Chases on the Beach.

We came to New Smyrna Beach unsure of what to expect. There is so much more to see and do than we bargained for. Staying at Rich and Annie's condo made the whole experience perfect. We can't wait to visit NSB again!

Another Great Vacation At Oceanwalk

  • 4 of 5

We love Oceanwalk and have vacationed there the last six summers. Rich and Annie's condo was in a great location, was very clean, well equipped and they were so easy to work with. We will definitely rent from them again if it is available.

We are thinking about a vacation again and will definitely go back to this Condo. It is clean and the amenities are beyond any we expected. As a matter of fact we are thinking about the next stage in our life which is retirement in the next few years and have decided that Ocean Walk is at the top of our list. I know this is late in coming, but, Annie And Rich, we thank you for a wonderful and memorable vacation. You guys are the best!
