Richard and Lucille purchased the home in 2004 as a beach getaway from Orlando. The home is completely renovated from a total gut out to the charming apartment you see today. Our very first visit to NSB was love at first sight. After a lengthy discussion between us about where the beach parking lot could possible be, then just parking at the side of the road and following the sounds and smell of the delicious salt air we where in heaven.
At the end of the day we went to Peninsula Realty and purchased the cottage. Love of older homes and the location was the deciding factor this cottage was for us.Recently we started our next project the garage apartment and have moved from Orlando to start the new phase of our lives at the beach and retirement in the near future.
Lucy or Richard Landry / property managers purchased this cottage in 2004
Renovations and woodworking is a hobby enjoyed by Richard, it is a diversion from working at a desk as an Electrical Engineer and passion. Lucille loves decorating and antiques and what a fun project this was. Not to mention our love of the ocean and the weather in Florida.
We love the community and life styles of this area. The charming town is unique and it has lots to do. This is the perfect place for anyone looking for a relaxed place to live and keep active. The renovations are never ending and our passions are fulfilled.
The host were wonderful with communications and it was easy and simple to get in. The host seem to be very laid back and very welcoming. The cottage is exactly as described and has a ton of charm and was very clean. I wasn't aware there was an upstairs unit that was rented out but they never bothered us and never heard a peep so it was no issue at all there. The Cottage was stocked with everything we needed to cook and clean for the week and made our vacation even more enjoyable. The big front porch was one of my favorite parts, I enjoyed sitting out there with my son while the afternoon storms rolled through. This vacation was exactly what our family needed and this cottage was perfect and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a laid back easy going vacation. Thank you all for a wonderful stay and we hope we get to stay again sometime next year! -Alyssa and Joel
I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the 50's and remember the pristine, untouched beaches of my youth and the idyllic lifestyle small beach towns fostered. This cottage and the beach town of New Smyrna Beach was reminiscent of that time and more.!!!!
The cottage is esthetically pleasing both inside and out. Starting with the lush landscaping to the wide covered front porch to the outside Caribbean color motif.
The Landlord's attention to detail is meticulous and the inside of the cottage is equipped with every conceivable item you might ever need. The kitchen, dining room, bedroom, living room and laundry room is abundantly equipped with everything...and I mean everything. All you need are your clothes and a toothbrush.
The landlord's decor is a blend of old Florida with contemporary "beachy" flavors,that immediately makes you feel like you are in a tranquil tropical paradise.
The landlord supplied all linens including beach towels as well as beach umbrellas, chairs, beach toys etc. As I said earlier.. they have all the bases covered.
My husband and I traveled along the east coast of Florida from Fernandina Beach to Miami, looking for a SAFE beach community. One that was bicycle/walking friendly, with a variety of restaurants and cafes, having unique retail stores, and national known grocery stores. The a local live theater, great health food grocery and public tennis court were pleasantly surprising amenities . We also were concerned that the beach community was populated with families and retirees. The ONLY community that fit this description was New Smyrna Beach.
The ocean is absolutely beautiful with it's wide sugar sand beaches, perfect for walks or just people watching. The public beaches are staffed with lifeguards 7 days a week as well as bike, umbrella, chair and beach toy rentals. You do not have to leave the beach if you are hungry, beach side restaurants/cafes and food venders are within steps.
In closing, I feel the best selling point of this cottage, was the most gracious, hospitable and extremely accommodating attitude of the Landlord.
My husband and I were so enamored with our phenomenal stay at the cottage that before we left, we booked for the entire month of December.
I can not recommend a more warm, cozy and homey accommodation in all of New Smyrna Beach.
We really enjoyed this vacation home or "cottage". It looks just like the pictures. The front porch is a great feature because it is spacious and allows you a great place to sit and relax outdoors (and barbecue) when not at the beach. It is barely a minutes walk from beautiful New Smyrna beach. It is also easy walking distance to nearby restaurants including the main Flager Ave.
The cottage is very clean and very well-equipped. It does have a very cottage feel, full of character but with modern amenities. The owners are attentive and responsive.
We would definitely stay there again. The area itself is very quiet. And it is great to have a dog friendly vacation home so doggy can come along too!
This is my fourth time to stay in the beautiful beach cottage in the past 4 years. The first stay I intended to stay 2 weeks and it turned into a couple months!!! I was hooked on this peacful place to recharge! My husband and I became engaged here and we intend to keep coming back at least twice a year. Richard and Lucille, the owners of the property take such pride and great care of this "jewel" in NSB...that we always know when we pull in the driveway, it's going to be wonderful!
This was our third stay at the "adorable cottage". We love this place. The house is immaculately clean, adorably decorated,conveniently located, comfortable and every detail addressed. There are 3 TV'S, beautiful linen, extra pillows, washer and dryer in the unit, large beautiful NEW bathroom with 2 sinks. Every kitchen gadget, dishwasher, formal dinning room, out door dining table & chairs & Gas grill, lounge chairs for lounging after the beach, beach chairs are provided and an out door shower. What more could you want. The restaurants are great, Boston Fish is our favorite, just like home! We even went to a play. Loads of shops for shopping, browsing, beach walking, Walking to town, around the corner, stopping in every watering hole, we even have a few friends that remembered and greeted us.
The beach in among the best on the East Coast.
We highly recommend this cute little private home, perfect for children, adults and Pets! The owners are very easy to deal with, always available. The neighbors are friendly and often stop with a recommendation or what ever is new in town and the goings and comings.
The rate is every reasonable. We will be back.
This was our second year at Carol Ave. When we arrived last year we were surprised and disappointed to discover the "cottage" is in reality a lower unit in a triplex building. The upstairs apartment proved difficult to rent and remained empty during our stay so we gambled on a second year. Unfortunately it was not to be. Suffice it to say that the sound deadening between floors is sparse if any.
The rest of the apartment is pretty well as presented in the listing description. The location is excellent with close proximity to the beach. Flagler Avenue and shopping is nearby. The front porch is outstanding although the view is diminished by the three parking spots in front.. The equipment while serviceable is getting quite long of tooth. In our opinion the addition of a screen door is essential and would raise the quality of life significantly.
