After growing up in South Florida and graduating from Florida State University, I currently reside with my family in Central Florida. I have 5 children and one grandson, Oskar Gray! In 2006 I was able to realize my dream of owning a condo on New Smyrna Beach. Though I had no experience in the “rental world,” I was very business minded. Applying my past work experiences, years of travel, and a high standard of excellence to managing my own vacation rental property, it wasn’t long before I began to see a 100% increase in my condo’s annual rental income. I soon realized that I was better equipped to manage my property than the onsite rental office. More importantly, through my own travel experiences, I understood the way that guests want to be treated. I understood how important it was to provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere that would draw families back to my property year after year. Now, after 10 years, here I am today with Great Ocean Condos managing almost 275 properties in the New Smyrna Beach and Greater Daytona Area- the largest vacation rental management company in our area.

We stayed the week of April 23rd and it was perfect!! The condo itself was beautiful and accommodated everyone there! We loved that it was so family oriented with our two little ones! The only downfall was some of the employees at the resort were extremely rude and we felt extremely out of place but that it definitely not the condos fault!
Thank you so much for writing a review. We are so happy you were able to enjoy your stay with us! We are so sorry to hear about the rude employees at the complex. We try our best to provide a positive experience for all guests that stay with us. We will make sure to look into this problem as soon as possible. Thank you once more, and please make sure to come back and take advantage of our return guest discount

Amenities seemed great at first site; after settling in, we were disappointed.
Upon arrival, we could not get the smoke detector to stop "chirping". We tried to disconnect and found it attached to the main electrical. We called the home away office for guidance, as we could not find the breaker box. That did not work either,; since there was no onsite assistance, my husband had to go the store to buy a replacement battery.
The other discomfort we experienced was the bed: we slept on a three-inch foam pad, with polyester!! Sheets. There was no way to remain cool, even with the air and fan going. WHO uses those items?? The pillows were old and "deflated".
Our daughter's family shared the second room. There was no dresser and nowhere to lay out clothing for a family of three. They shared the dresser in the master with us. SO INCONVENIENT.
We were disappointed, even with all the amenities advertised. I have to think that bedding and emergency alarms would be two things owners would attend to .
Thank you so much for your review and we can not apologize enough for the inconvenience of the battery dying on the smoke detector. It's very disappointing that Homeaway did not return your call. Our office is open 24/7 to assist you with any needs you may have. The phone number is listed on the confirmation we sent you as well as all of our check-in documents and guest arrival app. We are also sorry about the other discomforts you experiences while staying with us, we have informed the owner about your suggestions. Please come back again soon to utilize your return guest discount!

Nice Condo with good partial view of the ocean
Condo was clean and roomy. Nice master bath and comfortable beds. Slept 5 adults well. Kitchen was fully stocked. Initially getting to the condo after getting through the security gates was a little tricky. Neighbors were pleasant. The pool areas were nice. We enjoyed adventuring out for a walk on the boardwalk through the mangrove forest. All-in-all a relaxing time!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you were able to enjoy the roomy and clean condo with a fully stocked kitchen! Please come back again soon to utilize your return guest discount!

All the comforts of home plus an ocean view!
We vacationed with our 2 dogs and grown "kids" from Orlando and found this condo to be very spacious and comfortable. Although we didn't use all the amenities the owners have stocked in their "home away from home", we were impressed with the variety; including Wi, games, snow cone maker, slushie maker, blender, air popcorn maker, hot dog cooker, etc. The walk to the beach was easy with the cross walk relatively close to this unit. Sitting on the patio with a cocktail in the early evening was delightful, particularly after bocce ball competition at the pool. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the nature walk provided an alternative view while walking the dogs. Speaking of the furry friends; most people we saw there had a dog(s), yet I never saw "remnants" of them. There were doggie waste bags in convenient locations so there was no excuse to not clean up after your dog and clearly everyone did! We've been coming to NSB for YEARS, having both grown up in Orlando, but this was the first time eating out at Café Verde and So Napa Grill. We were very happy at both, in fact, returning to So Napa Grill 2 more times for Happy Hour dining. Mon Delice Bakery has always been a favorite for lunchtime subs on fresh baguettes! This was such a relaxing vacation, exactly what we were looking for. We hope to return to Oceanwalk and specifically, this condo, someday.
Wow, thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are so happy you could enjoy the pool, bocce ball, beach and all the amenities in the unit! We are also very happy to hear you would love to come join us again at Oceanwalk! Please come back soon to utilize your return guest discount!

About New Smyrna Beach
Located on Florida’s east central coast, New Smyrna Beach is a quiet seaside retreat at the southern mouth of Ponce de Leon Inlet. It is a small, historic city, and yet offers 13.2 miles of beach to enjoy. At only 55 miles northeast of Orlando, it serves as a favorite get-a-way destination for many Central Florida residents and has garnered significant notoriety as a surfing destination, often hosting American Surfing Professionals’ competitions. Surfers can bring their own equipment or rent from the numerous surf shops along the beach. New Smyrna Beach is the second oldest town in Florida and what many call “the old Florida of yesterday.” Quaint shops on historic Flagler Avenue and friendly folks are what New Smyrna Beach is all about. Through the years, the City of New Smyrna Beach has maintained tight controls on growth, resulting in a limited number of low-rise condominiums being constructed. The city has also held strict parameters on beach traffic which, in addition to protecting beach goers, simultaneously protects nesting sea turtles. It is a nesting ground for loggerhead sea turtles, and Florida’s loggerhead population is the largest in the nation.
What to do in New Smyrna Beach?
Enjoy the many activities that come with staying right on one of the finest sandy beaches in Florida. You’ll find water sports, beachcombing, fishing, golf, shopping, and many local dining choices within walking distance. Once you stay here, you’ll want to come back again and again. We recommend that you call today to reserve your space as our condo books up very quickly. And, if you have never been to New Smyrna Beach in the off-season, find out for yourself why the locals feel it’s the best kept secret in town! New Smyrna Beach in the Fall and Winter is a great time to visit due to smaller crowds, beautiful weather, lower prices, and a beach that you’ll have practically all to yourself.
New Smyrna Beach Festivals
The downtown historic district, on Flagler Avenue, is the perfect location for a number of festivals throughout the year. The New Smyrna Beach Food Festival happens every April, offering a tasting of the beach’s best food and drink. The Cinco de Mayo celebration in May is a family fun time with live music and dancing in the streets. In August, the Shrimp and Seafood Festival begins, featuring tons of seafood as well as a display of unique arts and crafts. Jazz lovers come in the droves for the city’s annual Jazz Fest in September, featuring live music on street stages and in local venues around New Smyrna Beach.
New Smyrna Beach Museums and the Arts
The Atlantic Center for the Arts is the backbone of the lively New Smyrna Beach arts scene. The arts center has received great recognition for its eco-friendly design. The complex of buildings houses art exhibitions, performances, and is home to an artist-in-residence program. There are several art galleries in the downtown New Smyrna Beach area, such as Florida Galleria and TaDa Gallery which showcase works of local artists. The city is home to the Black Heritage Museum which has a collection of artifacts that date back to the 1920s.
New Smyrna Beach Parks and Recreation
Not only is there plenty to do on the beach, the New Smyrna Beach area includes many parks which offer camping, fishing, hiking, and other activities. Lake Ashby Park, a 64 acre waterfront park, offers many outdoor activities such as primitive camping, fishing, canoeing, horse trails, sport courts, and a boat ramp. Smyrna Dunes Park is 73 acres of land giving visitors of New Smyrna Beach the opportunity to view wildlife and sand dunes up close and personal. The park features elevated walkways, picnic areas, observation areas, and a pavilion.
