About the property

Dolphins Manatees @ your dock-Riverfront Lux Newly Renovated 2bed/2bath Villas!!


Welcome to Kate’s Place!

Kate's Riverfront Villas:

Our brand new 2 bedroom 2 bathroom one story villas in a direct riverfront community with boat/fishing docks are available. They are being renovated from floor to ceiling with all brand new marble counters, new stainless steel appliances, new paint, new floors and customized walk-in rain showers. (The community is newly renovated as well).

There are community boat and fishing docks (private docks coming soon), where you can watch dolphins and manatees while you are fishing on the dock; or you can enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding in front of the villas with these friendly lovely creatures. A riverside boardwalk is in the plan to be built and a direct riverside community pool is being built as well.

The community is so perfectly located, only across the bridge from the beach, many people bike to Flagler Ave to the beach. It is right by downtown New Smyrna Beach Canal Street where there are Farmers' Market, street fairs on the weekend and plenty fantastic restaurants and local boutique shops. The new Civic Center is right around the corner and almost ready for events. The Marina is right across the street where you can take a dinner boat cruise in the evenings for only $19 ...

We have several villas available. Some are direct waterfront with screened in porches facing the river; some are not direct waterfront interior units but only steps to the river:

Non-riverfront end courtyard units

$1,674 per month (all booked Jan/Feb/Mar 2017)

We intend to provide several water sport options once the boat docks are in place - such as pontoon, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, etc.

The renovations are still underway, so the pictures do not reflect the final product.

About Kate

My family and I live locally and we love this special quaint beach town. We discovered that when we have friends and family come to visit us and stay here for a while, they all become more relaxed, healthier and much happier. When they have to leave, they all can't wait to return again. Many of them have told us that there is something so very special about New Smyrna Beach, something that brings so much joy and excitement to the children; something that brings peace and romance to the grownups and something that brings health and happiness to the grandparents and other Young-at-Hearts. We decided that we would like to share with more people this wonderful experience and help to bring them more happiness and beautiful memories of New Smyrna Beach. That is why we now have sixteen high quality vacation homes designed for families and couples that are looking for a comfortable stay at safe and conveniently located communities near the beach, golf courses, shopping and restaurants. We believe that God had blessed NSB to be our paradise on earth. Please see all our listings: VRBO Listing #905705, #679640, #679245, #694144, #733173, and #721253..

Kate purchased this villa in 2015

Why Kate chose Florida

We have 8 newly renovated one story 2 bedroom 2 bathroom villas located in a very safe and charming direct waterfront community. A bike ride to beach, shopping, restaurants, Downtown Canal Street, Marina and the Civic Center. Short drive to golf courses and to Daytona, Orlando theme parks and St. Augustine. Updated, well equipped, finely furnished and meticulously cleaned. A great place to relax and enjoy the dolphins, manatees, the river and Florida sunshine!

What makes this villa unique

This property is on the riverfront, near the beach, both downtown Canal and Flagler; Marina, Civic Center, Farmers' Market, golf, airports and only about 20 minutes to Daytona, one hour drive to Orlando Theme Parks and St. Augustin. A perfect location for a wonderful fun filled and relaxed vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful and relaxing stay here. The townhome is immaculate, the setting peacefu.l and Kate and John couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We really had a great stay on all levels. The townhome is in a great location – in many ways we liked it better than staying on the beach directly as it was quieter and more serene and there was lots to see and do nearby. The place was incredibly clean and nicely decorated (even nicer than the photos). The pool was close by, clean and uncrowded. Nice walking trails out the front door. And sandhill cranes and bald eagles to watch from the patio. The care that John and Kate took to ensure a nice stay made everything even more special. They had great recommendations (we tried several of their recommended restaurants and all of them were great) and had stocked the townhome with everything you could want for your stay. They were super-prompt with communication and genuinely interested in making sure we had everything we needed. All their caring touches were greatly appreciated by us. It was truly a great vacation — one of our family's favorites so far — and we thank Kate and John for making it so special. We didn't want to come home! :)

Best rental in 10 years !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented various properties, during the winter months, in New Smyrna Beach for 10 years. This years rental with Kate and John has exceeded all of the others. We found the town home to be clean, nicely furnished, equipped with upscale appliances and conveniently located to the beach, Orlando or I95. The view overlooking the lake is serene and peaceful. However, the best feature is our hosts, Kate and John. We couldn’t have asked for more attentive and responsive folks. We are returning next year and do not hesitate to recommend their properties to others.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful experience with Kate. I needed a temporary furnished rental and I couldn't of asked for anything more perfect. It is a great lakeside townhouse. Quiet, clean and a short drive to the beach and great restaurants. I would stay here again if I were to return to the area.

Serene stay

  • 4 of 5

Quiet and family friendly neighborhood close to all what New Smyrna has to offer. The house was immaculate and equipped with everything possible. It is clear that the owners take the extra mile to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend this place to anybody contemplating staying in this area.

Nicest place in New Smyrna Beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this townhouse after staying in several places in Florida. We are recent retirees from Canada and we wanted to find a place we could come back to. John and Kate's condo was by far the best we stayed in. Even the price was reasonable. Unfortunately it was already booked for next winter, but we are hoping to stay in one of their new places.

Here's what we liked about the townhouse:

-It's spacious

-The decor is great and the furniture comfortable (amazing huge flat screen TV).

-The view of the lake was calming and the lake changed at different times of day, from a reflective mirror to a sparkling surface or a part of the sunset.

-The bird life was fabulous. We watched (and heard) and pair of nesting sandhill cranes, as well as saw egrets, ibis, wood storks, herons, and a variety of ducks.

-The beach was a quick drive down Highway 44, or you could go the back way down Pioneer Drive. The beach is one of the best in Florida, and great to walk on. Park free at Mi Mexico and walk for miles in either direction.

-There's a wonderful Publix supermarket, mall and movie theatre just a short drive along I95.

-And of course John and Kate were readily available and just a few minutes away.

When we came to Florida we imagined we would most of our time outdoors, but that isn't the case. It's important to have a nice place to stay, and this is definitely it!
