I can't say it enough, this house is AMAZING..

This is our second trip to this particular house, and we are doing it again next year. The house is wonderfully located right on the beach, not close to it, not on the other side of the road from it, RIGHT ON THE BEACH! You wake up every morning to the sound of the waves hitting the shore, seagulls flying overhead, the sun rising and fresh ocean air hitting your face. Without busy lives, this place is heaven.

Our first trip we made in July of 09, it was myself, my husband and our three kids. When we arrived we were just in awe of the property, each room had its own bathroom, the house was decorated adorably and walking out the back door, well it just took my breath away. We could shop for groceries at the local store and come back to the house and cook our food. No additional expense for eating out every day, which is quite pricey with three kids. We wandered around Flagler Ave for trinkets and to have ice cream and the people in town are wonderful. We had arranged to go to NASA as well as Discovery Cove, they were a close commute from the house but the best part was not the tourist sites but coming back to this house. When we packed up to leave from that first trip I knew we would be coming back.

Our second trip was in December of 2012 and we fell in love all over again. What made this stay different was we brought 3 of our kid’s friends and my mother. That made ten of us total. There was enough room for all of us in this house and we could have even brought more. Everyone had an amazing time; we grilled out, hunted for sea shells, took walks on the beach oh and lazed around in the hammock on the beach. Everyone had a wonderful time and memories were made that will never be forgotten. It was the best after Christmas, Christmas present ever!! Oh and I forgot to mention that they have fireworks on Flagler Ave for the New Year holiday and they were awesome. Being from Wisconsin, that was new and wonderful!! I can't emphasize enough how wonderful it is to stay here, we travel every other year and this is by far my absolute favorite destination.

We are already in the process of planning our return trip for 2014. Susan is wonderful to work with and on top of things that it eliminates the stress of trying to plan a vacation. I can't thank her enough for all of the wonderful experiences we have had at this house and will have in the future. But I can keep coming back!!!

5 years and counting

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year coming to Beachnuts to spend a week with the family, and it was another great stay. The setting is fantastic with the ocean view from the back deck. The layout works well for us too because each bedroom has its own bathroom and it does give you a little bit of added privacy.

This year they added a new stove which is great because we cook all of our meals at the house. The close proximity to the beach is always a huge bonus as it is just down the steps out back.

I hope we can make it year 6 in 2015.

Thanks for another great week

Owner's Response: It's so good to have Chris and his family and friends come back year after year! I really do understand how he feels because there's nothing I like better than being a "Beach Nut"! After all, the folks who stay here are "nuts about the beach". I know of one group that had t-shirts made with "Beach Nuts" printed on them and they took a group photo wearing the t-shirts with the beautiful aqua ocean behind them. If you truly love beach life this is the place to be! People seem to love the cheery decor and comfortable furnishings including the terrace furniture (I like to lie in the lounge chairs and feel the gentle breeze and warm sun, but if I want the shade we do have umbrellas or I move to some shade from the overhang of the Florida Room. The house is so conducive to interaction between friends or family and the beautiful views of nature & sea are the best! I do love awakening to a sunrise over the ocean and a new day for more fun. When I'm here I truly feel refreshed and in touch with my inner child who wildly loved the invigorating playful feeling of being free of all worries. This beach is great for walking to Flagler Ave., or riding a bike you can rent, playing volleyball or frisbee or tossing a ball. If you like shells have fun and there's a gradual walkout so you no big drop offs. I love boogie boarding and kids (and adults) can build sandcastles and dreams. Every time I come to "Beach Nuts" I feel like a kid and I fall in love again with this special place once again!!

Wonderful Views!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views, right on the beach! We had such a good time sitting on the large screened in porch in the morning having coffee and watching the sun come up. So peaceful just what we needed, the colorful sunrises and again in the evening to the amazing sounds of the surf after dark. My family enjoyed taking long walks on the beach and hunting for shells. The house is decorated in the beach theme, which adds to the whole fun of vacationing at the beach. Having four bedrooms and four bathrooms is a real plus. Nice size kitchen and living areas, stocked with every household items you will ever need. Having a washer and dryer was very nice. Susan was very helpful, and easy to work with. Also, this is a great area to be in, close to lots of parks and beaches, Daytona Beach area along with Orlando and all Central Florida. An added plus is the house is close to some of the best restaurants we have ever been to, with amazing food and reasonable prices, and we travel a lot. Added bonus we brought our cat Ava Kitty along and she loved it. We enjoyed our stay, so go, have fun and make some wonderful memories of your own.

Owner's Response: Another happy guest makes my day!!! I LOVE to hear that Debbie and her family and friends had fun at Beach Nuts!! They sound like they really captured the spirit of the beach experience and this special place. This is not a glitzy palace, but just exactly what it's supposed to be: Fun, Fun, Fun!!! We have traveled extensively ourselves and stayed in Ritz Carlton hotels and at some beautiful beach locations, but we always conclude there is something very special about the natural beauty of New Smyrna Beach and Beach Nuts. I'm usually my happiest and most relaxed when I'm there. (I do admit to loving a nap in the hammock strung between two palm trees with the ocean as a back drop!) I also love the walk to the beach down our private path with the beach daisies, sea oats and flowers along the way for me to view. Come and bring your family and friends and you can be a "Beach Nut" too!

Hi Susan

Just read the Review from the Person that stayed at Beach Nuts starting on Dec.22nd, 2013. To Me, these People were just looking for a Place to stay and

get Their Money back. I'm sorry that You have to deal with People like this, but

it probably won't be the last. As You know We stayed in Your Home in July of 2013

and had a wonderful time, and when We get Out Act together, plan on staying there

again this Summer. There were 8 of Us that stayed there in July, and not one

complaint about the Beds, the Showers, the Closets or anything else. The only thing We didn't like was that We had to leave!!!

Hope to talk with You soon about Our next Stay.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear from a past renter who loved Beach Nuts the way I do!! I've had so many people express your same sentiment about really being able to relax in a space right ON the ocean that hearkens back to a simpler life and time when everyone wasn't in such a rush. When ever there is a break in the rentals, my family and friends can't wait to head to Beach Nuts. We absolutely LOVE the House and New Smyrna Beach!! I am always complimented on the decor and all the extras we provide like:beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, tons of beach games and toys, old fashioned board games, cable t.v. in the bedrooms and great-rooms, the beach side shower to rinse off after the beach, the flamingo tableware and candles, the palm tree with flip flop lights and all the fun things I can think of to make people's stay as nice as possible. Some of my favorite things to do at the house, when I'm not enjoying everything about the beach;including clean blue water and brilliant white sand, are walking to town on the beach and buying an icecream, or stopping in a beach restaurant for a burger (bathing suits allowed in the Tiki huts or on the ocean decks), playing Boccie Ball, throwing a Frisbee or tossing a ball or playing beach volleyball. I like to read a book on the HUGE ocean terrace and just relax and listen to the waves or enjoy the breeze and watch the waves or count pelicans as they fly by. I love the big star studded sky that greets me in the evening after dinner on the grill when you can many times see the reflection of the moon in the water dancing on the white waves. Last, but not least the sunrise over the ocean and the technicolor sunsets ares something you will never forget! I wish I were there now! I guess you can see I and many, many others are true "BEACH NUTS" because we will always love this special, unique place!! I hope you will too. I hope Paul will return soon and he is ALWAYS WELCOME. Thank you for caring to all who have been my guests and all my future guests.

A Vacation To Remember Fondly.

This house is everything we were told it would be and more.My fiance,two year old and I stayed here for six wonderful days.We were able to visit the Disney Theme Parks during the day and we were able to be home for dinner and relaxation in the evenings.There is a grill available to cook burgers and hot dogs so we didn't have to go anywhere once we were home.Why would we want to go anywhere when you can dine with an ocean view with the comforts of home.This house is decorated so tastefully with a beach theme throughout.We want to move in.We slept with all the windows open and the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach lulls you to sleep.My two year old,who doesn't sleep would go right to sleep without a fight.I think it was a combo of the Parks and the beach.Our last couple of day's we spent at the house playing in the water and building sand castles.My son to this day keeps asking when we can go back to the beach house.....It will be within the next year because we think we will be getting married there on the terrace or on the beach.I can't think of a better place to get married.I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone.We are frequent beach house renters and this one by far is our favorite.

Owner's Response: I understand exactly how you feel! I receive so many compliments from people who just LOVE Beach Nuts and can't wait to return. You have mentioned that you really loved the calming effect the ocean has on anyone who enjoys nature and the true beauty of the ocean experience. I do love all the sights and sounds that make you feel you've step back in time to a kinder, more gentle world where there is no hurry and you can take the time to truly relax. I love to open the windows up too (if the temperature allows)and run the ceiling fans and listen to the gentle lull of the waves and the seabirds chirping. I do adore the sunrises over the ocean and even if I don't get up to see it make it's fireball entrance to the world from the ocean, I take a look out the window from my bed because I do have a view. Many people do make the trip to Disney and the theme parks because it's an easy drive and about 1 hour 15 minutes away. Most of them can't wait to get back to the beach and they enjoy all the wonderful things to do at the house and everything New Smyrna Beach has to offer. Families love playing on the beach because where Beach Nuts is you have white sand and you are actually on the ocean (NOT ACROSS THE STREET) which is the case with most rentals marked (DIRECT OCEANFRONT) in New Smyrna Beach. There are actually only TWO HOUSES that are on the ocean in New Smyrna Beach. The others are further south in Bethune Beach away from town. I personally would want to be on the ocean instead of across the street which is a paved access road to a public park. Teenagers and adults like being able to walk to town on the beach to rent bikes, take a surfboard lesson, para sail, get an ice cream cone, stop in one of the tiki hut restaurants for a burger or beverage, go shelling or exercise. Kids love the white sand that's perfect for sandcastles; unlike the ground up seashell sand (coquina) found further south in Bethune Beach. There are so many beach toys for children they will never get bored and Boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and beach games are available for all. Play Boccie Ball (one of my favorites), volley ball, Frisbee, paddle ball, football, soccer. The beach is big enough in front of Beach Nuts unlike some of the more eroded coquina beaches in the Bethune Beach area. You'll like being 5 minutes from the grocery store, Little Theater,art galleries, and the GREAT New Smyrna Beach restaurants,movie theaters and shopping. .

The huge beachfront and oceanfront terrace overlooks the aqua Atlantic Ocean & tropical flowered landscape. It has a table and 4 chairs and a new table that seats 6 on the terrace, a grill, & an outdoor shower to wash sand off from the beach. The Fla. room also has a table and 4 chairs. The hammock strung between 2 palms by the ocean is great & the sugar white private path to the beach is truly a Fla experience. The breathtaking sunrises and sunsets are incredible!!!
