I've been vacationing in New Smyrna Beach literally my entire life, making multiple trips on a yearly basis. I've stayed in a host of beachfront properties, including various condos and a house. New Smyrna Beach is my life-long home away from home, so I speak with a good deal of experience. First of all, Sunrise Condo is located on the non-driving portion of New Smyrna Beach, and what a difference that makes! Congestion on the beach is greatly reduced on this portion of the island, and it's just a generally cleaner, more exclusive, and more relaxing area.
As for Sunrise Condo itself, I'd say that this property has few rivals in New Smyrna Beach. It's a beautiful building on a beautiful property, all well maintained. The pool area was spacious and close to the beach, and the beach access was well maintained and convenient.
The photographs of this particular room accurately speak for themselves. This was the most immaculate condo I've ever had the pleasure of inhabiting. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, comfortable and accommodating, and the kitchen was exceptionally well stocked. The furnishings and decor throughout the condo are comfortable and inviting, and what a view of the ocean! The pictures don't do the view justice, which is always an important criteria for my vacations! A nice bonus was the custom turtle glass windows that eliminate the need for night coverage due to turtle protection laws.
Finally, Gene and Barbara, the condo owners, are some of the nicest and most considerate people you will meet. They truly get the concept of southern hospitality! Gene made rental arrangements simple and painless, and was prompt and thorough in all communications. Gene greeted us when we arrived and walked us through the condo, showing us everything that we needed to know, going above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied. It's refreshing to deal with actual property owners who live in the same building, instead of outsourced property management.
My conclusion should be obvious at this point, but I'll still say it. I can't highly enough recommend this property. I can't muster a single complaint or issue that I encountered, although I'm confident that Gene would have addressed any issues or concerns that may have arisen. If you're looking for the ultimate life escape vacation destination, look no further!
