About the property

Spacious 2-level, 2 BR / 2.5 Bath condo w. over 1,300 sq. feet of living area.

CDM-23 ... known to us as 'Kerry's Dream' .... is larger than most ranch homes. It doesn't feel like your typical beach condo. Plus, the unit has been continuously upgraded.

- All New Living Room Furniture

- New Master Bedroom Furniture

- New Dining Furniture

- Upgraded HD Cable TV Service

- Added Broadband Internet w. Wifi

- New 48' HD Smart TV w. DVR in Living Room

- 40" LED Flat Screen TV w. DVD Player in the Master BR

- 32" LED Flat Screen TV in the Guest BR

Both the Master Bathroom and Guest Bathroom are upgraded / modernized. Also, new paint throughout the unit.

We now have a Brand NEW Kitchen with Granite Counter Top and Breakfast Bar.

Also NEW for 2016. If you are willing to pay a $250 refundable security deposit by check (personal or bank) in lieu of the $59 Property Protection Insurance, we can apply a discount to the total rental amount. Please inquire by email or phone. Thanks.

We are a mere 5-minute walk to the historic Flagler Avenue ... where you can find shops, restaurants and bars. Arrive at CDM ... then park the car. Life is much easier this way.

But when you do need provisions, we also are only about 1/2 mile off of Rt. 44 where there is a Publix supermarket, liquor store and drug store. There are several trendy restaurants in that area also.

Please note that as we say in the "Summary", our unit is 2 Levels (2 Floors). And our lower floor is up one flight of stairs from ground level. Our lower floor has the kitchen, dining room, living room and a powder room. Our upper floor has the 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There is a common coin-operated laundry down a few units from ours.

About Len Lusebrink

I'm a structural engineer and have done design work for both nuclear and fossil power plants. I'm semi-retired and now have time to devote to improving our vacation properties in New Smyrna Beach and St. Thomas, USVI. I enjoy golf, sailing and working out. I do what I do so that my kids and grand-kids can enjoy life with me.

Len Lusebrink purchased this condo in 2014

Why Len Lusebrink chose Horton Shores

Location, Location, Location !!!

CDM is right on the beach, is very well maintained, small and not over powering AND within easy walking distance to Flagler Avenue. When we are there we rarely use our car .... other than to drive to the many great golf courses in the area.

What makes this condo unique

Location and Modern Conveniences. Complete laundry on the premises. Each unit has a reserved parking space.

New Smyrna Beach offers a great centrally located home base if your plans include Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral Cruise Boat Terminals or the Daytona 500 Racetrack which are all only a short drive away. Other local attractions in New Smyrna Beach include the scenic Lighthouse at Ponce Inlet, Turtle Mound at Canaveral National Seashore (a protected bird sanctuary), Sugar Mill Ruins, Movie Theater, outstanding golf courses, kayaking and bicycle rentals. When you stay at CDM-23, you will have direct access to the beach with lots of white sand (for sunning, car cruising or biking) and warm water (for swimming, surfing and wakeboarding). The 20 mile long beach is also a great place to simply relax and listen to the waves, as New Smyrna Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Relax on your private balcony, float in the sparkling blue waters of the complex pool, and grill out on the barbecue. The Best-of-the-Best !!!

Clean and close to the ocean

  • 4 of 5

Condo is clean and close to ocean. Amenities for the condo are misleading. Washer and dryer are stated as part of the amenities, but not mentioned that they are coin operated down the hall from unit. Also, no mention of the unit being on second floor, and the bedroom on the third floor. My MIL was thankfully able to get up the stairs, but should be pointed out in the description. Overall, our stay was good.

Owner's Response: Hi Danielle, Sorry that you were not aware that we had 2 floors. We do say in our "Summary" that the unit is 2-Levels. But I see that it might not be interpreted as 2 floors ... so I have already clarified things in the description and included the fact that we are up a flight of stairs from ground level. I also mention that there is a common coin-laundry down a few units from ours. We appreciate the constructive feedback .... I've learned that these VRBO ads are a work in progress. Regards, Len
