Recently renovated 4 BR/2 BA, 2-story home on a quiet street on south New Smyrna Beach. We are only a few steps from the beach and a short walk to famous JB's Fishcamp (a popular rustic restaurant/bar) and the Canaveral National Seashore Park. Manatees are often seen grazing at a park river pier, which is only three blocks away in the opposite direction.
Our section of the beach has no driving and very limted public parking, thereby making it practically private. With a vacant lot next door, we have ample parking for your RV, boat and friends.
From our place you can beach walk for less than 10 minutes and cross into the Canaveral National Seashore Park where there is absolutely no development. You explore the beaches & dunes in their natural pristine state. If people-watching is more your thing, you can walk the same distance northbound and you will be at Mary McLeod Bethune County Beach Park (see links to both Parks below). There you will find surfers, a lifeguard and plenty of bodies soaking up the sun (also tennis courts, basketball courts and fishing dock across the street, riverside).
Why pay an arm & a leg for a beach vacation when you can walk a few steps and stay for half the price? For what you'll pay for our place, you can afford another trip. Or, better yet, stay with us twice as long!
Check out our reviews and see what our past guests are saying. We've only been renting our home for just over a year and we've already had several repeat guests. That should tell you something.
We began renting only 2 years ago, after our renovation. We loved the Atlantic beaches and always wanted a family vacation home. With Orlando as our home base, we wanted some place within a reasonable drive and New Smyrna was the perfect choice. It exactly a 1.5 hour drive for us door-to-door. Also we loved the remoteness that "Bethune Beach" (South NSB) offered. It's like our own private beach (no traffic).
We love being so close to the undeveloped beach of Canaveral National Seashore park, and yet only a quick jaunt away from restaurants & shopping. We love having two separate, upstairs/downstairs family/TV areas. The kids can shoot pool, play video games and watch their shows downstairs, while we enjoy other activities upstairs. We love our large upstairs outside deck, especially in the mornings with a cup a coffee and late afternoons with a refreshing adult beverage. It doesn't get better than that!
County recreation park is three blocks away with tennis, basketball, children's playground and fishing pier. Also two boat ramps are close by.
On Sundays at the Canaveral National Seashore Park, 2-hour pontoon boat tours of Mosquito Lagoon & the estuaries are given by National Park Rangers (for a small fee).
