A Fantastic Private Retreat Under The Palm Trees!!
This is my third stay at this lovely private cottage in New Smyrna Beach Fla. All Three visits have been a exceptional and wonderful experience. As I stated in my previous review, I am the owner of a Transportation service in Boston Ma.. I have been coming to New Smyrna Beach for many years, my son and his family resides in the area. I have been blessed with a beautiful grandchild!! (Sarah), prompting me to travel South more often these days. I travel alone, and having been a slave to the hotels and so called resorts in the area for years. I was in search of better accommodations with amenities for extended stays. Giving me the ability to relax in true privacy, and visit, spending quality time with my son, lovely daughter in law & the cutest grandchild in the world. Then with a little luck: I was blessed to find such a wonderful and well appointed cottage for my short weekly stay or a longer visit in the days and holidays ahead. All of the photos are a true and accurate representation of the cottage and property. The presentation and maintenance of the property and cottage is immaculate. Herb and Susie are wonderful and attentive hosts, giving you the feeling of visiting family. The private garden is wonderful to view in the AM. with a good cup of coffee and a little soft music floating through the palm trees with the Monarch butterflies! The pool area is always clean and inviting. There is a wonderful dock over looking the inter-coastal water way to enjoy a evening aperitif, or the sunset ocean breeze under the palm trees. The property shows Herb & Susie's love and dedication to excellence. In considering the quality and well appointed accommodation, I feel the price point is fair and reasonable. Lastly the location, is only a couple of mile from the beach or local cafes!! (beach cruiser bikes are on location for the short ride) It is local to the grocery stores and a number of inviting restaurants. This is a top shelf upgrade to any single or couple that are looking for superior clean, safe and quality accommodations experience in New Smyrna Beach or the Daytona Beach Shores area. This listing is pure gold and 5 Stars!! "Bon Vivant" Regards, David
A week was not enough!
My husband and I spent a week in the Carriage House behind the historic home of the owners. Our stay was everything we had hoped for and more. We felt as though we were pampered guests, rather than paying customers.. The owners are wonderful hosts and the area they have created has a beautiful, energizing atmosphere. We were constantly discovering new and interesting artworks, antique furnishings and luxurious plantings; all put together with impeccable taste. In addition to the charming and comfortable accommodations, we found the location to be very convenient to the Historic Area of the town of New Smyrna Beach, as well as the actual beach area. We definitely plan to return, but next time it will be for a longer stay!! Tom & Judy
Dear Judy and Tom,
You are so right....a week was not enough and we so enjoyed you being here. As with so many of our wonderful, gracious and very interesting guests...we are always so happy and excited to welcome them back. Thank you for your kind and sincere review.
We look forward to seeing you again. Cheers, Susie & Herb
The place was just beautiful when we arrived. Everything was spotless & Herb & Susie were such nice people. I was sick with the flu for 6 out of the 11 days we were there and Susie made homemade chicken noodle soup for me! Anything you could possibly need was there for us to enjoy! If we ever go back to New Smyrna we want to stay at this place again.

A wonderful and magical Christmas Carriage Home with superb hospitality
My wife, Joan, and I (along with our Yorkie, Bailey!) spent two weeks from Dec 16 to Jan 1 at Susie and Herb’s Riverside Carriage Home. What a wonderful time we had. From the moment we arrived, Susie and Herb’s hospitality and attention to detail was second to none. The home was decorated for Christmas including stockings for us! The Main House was also completely decorated with a warm and inviting sense of the Holiday season. Over our 2 week stay, Susie and Herb were the utmost hosts providing us everything we needed including recommendations for dining, sightseeing and local activities. We felt totally “at home”. We started as guests, but now we are friends — the best Christmas gift we could have received. We would definitely come back and we highly recommend this property with Susie and Herb as the hosts!
