About the property

Private Home / Oceanfront 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathroom , Sleeps 12 , No Drive Beach

As the name suggests, this enchanting coastal getaway will alter your perspective, or rather bring it into focus. The humbling power of the ocean needs no introduction so instead let’s focus on the house. Situated between the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean, this home enjoys the rousing sounds of the ocean just feet from your front deck and the serenity of the river in your back yard. This quirky little section of New Smyrna known as Bethune is infused with unusual vitality that combines the bustling downtown of Flagler Avenue, the Riverfront Canal Street, Canaveral National Seashore, nationally renowned fishing and wildlife of the Lagoon and the blissful seclusion of the Ocean.

The house is banked on all sides by windows. The floors are covered with porcelain wood, and of course a bit of sand. Coastal though this home is, you will be at a loss if you're searching for the typical nautical decor. Beachfront Alchemy, as it is affectionately termed, is anything but typical. The house sleeps 12 people comfortably. The Master suite is on the first floor. It has a private sitting area and sliding doors that open to the beach facing deck. There are two spacious Beachfront bedrooms on the second floor, each with full baths and private facing balconies. The Master bedroom has one king sized bed. Both guest’s rooms have two queen sized beds. The bottom floor is a secluded, hideaway kids room with full sized bunk beds, movies and games. All beds have hypoallergenic pillows, Memory foam mattresses and 1000 ct. organic cotton sheets.

There is no shortage of activity in New Smyrna. The bustling downtown is home to a sundry cluster of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, surf shops, music and artsy galleries. Although all this activity is at your disposal, it is not a requisite of your stay. You can relax at the beach a stone's throw away from the real world where you can escape into obscurity.

Even if you are not a morning person, the view from the bedroom will draw you out of bed. Morning coffee has become something of an event for us here. We hope your stay at Beachfront Alchemy brings you back to peace, leaving the responsibilities of our busy lives behind. The transformative nature of this oceanfront house is something special that we in no way claim to own, nor fully understand. There is an overwhelming calm in the air that stays with you throughout your stay here. It is our sincerest hope that some of this calm leaves with you and draws you back to Beachfront Alchemy for years to come. It is where memories are made.

About Bernadette

We are Bernadette Woods and David Arteaga. We are both in the medical field and share six children. Late 2015, we randomly ventured into our first VRBO vacation home in New Smyrna Beach and fell in love with providing wonderful family and friends

gathering places in beachfront and mountainous towns. We are excited to be working on our forth vacation rental. Two in New Smyrna Beach, one in Asheville NC and one in Brigantine , NJ.

Bernadette purchased this house in 2014

Why Bernadette chose New Smyrna Beach

This is a Unique Beach property located in the south end of New Smyrna, known as Bethune Beach. The house is private, quaint and the best part is the amazing dock that jets out into the surf. It has a close proximity to Canaveral National Seashore, walking distance to JB's fish camp and world class fishing in the Indian River Lagoon.

What makes this house unique

Uniquely located in the quaint part of New Smyrna beach. This home sits on the No Drive beach with decking and Tiki huts jetting out over the waves. Walking distance to Canaveral National Seashore, The Indian River Lagoon, and

everyones favorite, J.B's fish camp, where you can sample local fare and listen to live music while watching the sunset.

12 people for a week, and always had plenty of room in the common areas especially because of the gorgeous deck. Beautiful sunrises over high tide. Lovely decor and very comfortable furnishing. Loved that 3 rooms had ocean views. Everyone had a great time.

Beach Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Very thoughtfully appointed home in one of the pretties beaches in the area. This house is lovely and the owners obviously put a lot of effort into its design and upkeep. They have thought of everything you need and spared no expense on the home decor and amenities. Would highly recommend this home. It is perfect for two families to share. Wanted to keep it a secret but the owners deserve the five star review. Thank you for the perfect peaceful retreat for our families.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting properties for family vacations for the last couple of years and I have to say that this house was one of our favorites! This house is beautifully furnished, clean and well stocked. The location is perfect and the deck is just amazing. On our first night we were all out on the deck enjoying the nighttime ocean breeze and we were lucky enough to watch a giant sea turtle come ashore and lay eggs. The beach itself is perfect and quiet with beautiful sunrises. We did most of our own cooking in the spacious kitchen where they have every appliance you will need. Truly a magnificent vacation for us - thank you Beach Alchemy !!
