"The condo was beautiful and very clean. You could practically dump your coffee off the balcony into the ocean at high tide. As a family of 6, we were very comfortable for the week. Being late July, the beach in front of Chadham by the Sea was a popular spot but even so, it never felt overly congested. And if you walked 150 yards in either direction it was practically vacant. We saw dolphins moving up and down the coast every morning during our stay. We also rented kayaks at JB's Fish Camp across the street and were able spend time with several manatees in the lagoon just a stone's throw from the complex. Oh, and as luck would have it, we were taking a walk on the beach one morning and accidentally witnessed a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral! Pretty awesome stuff!
Beth was a pleasure to work with and we appreciated the little extra's such as having paper products, trash bags, dishwasher soap, and laundry detergent provided for us. It was nice not needing to pack those things or add them to the grocery list. One of my favorite amenities was the rocking chair in the master bedroom. It was SO comfortable and the perfect place for watching an air conditioned sunrise. The views from the condo are absolutely stunning!
We spent an afternoon perusing the many quaint shops along Flagler Avenue and then treated ourselves to dinner at Norwood's Treehouse in NSB. What a unique restaurant! I honestly cannot remember that last time I've had food that good. We were all looking at each other in disbelief as we ate our dinner. Everyone's entrée was simply amazing. Our server wasn't so great but the food sure was! And the prices were very reasonable. 5 star food at 3 star prices. Can't beat that!
To be completely fair to fellow travelers, I should mention the one and only thing that could've been better. The trash chute for the building is just across the hallway from the front door of the condo and it often smelled pretty bad on both the 1st and 2nd floor. We spent the majority of our time of the other side of the condo, at the pool, or at the beach though, so it wasn't a big deal and you can't smell it inside the condo.
We wouldn't hesitate to rent from Beth again. Her property is everything she says it is. We had a wonderful week and would absolutely recommend this property and New Smyrna Beach in general to anyone who loves the ocean like we do!"
