Castle Reef is a resort-style condominium complex on the south side of New Smyrna Beach. It offers beautifully landscaped courtyards, oceanfront Olympic-sized heated pool, lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, large patio gazebo, clubhouse and pool-side barbecue grill! Enjoy the tranquility of a no-drive beach, conveniently located across A1A from restaurants and grocery store.
Our beautiful unit is on the fourth floor and has an excellent view of the ocean, pool, and tropical courtyard from the living room, master bedroom, and balcony. It has all the comforts of home (including local phone service, two televisions, DVD and VCR, towels, linens, utensils, even books!) to create a peaceful, relaxing vacation. Our kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, ice maker and everything from pots and pans to wine glasses, garlic presses to ice cream scoops!
The master bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed, with access to the balcony through large sliders and a private television for added convenience. An extra sink and mirror are located outside of main bathroom for added privacy and efficiency. Our comfortable new sofa in the living room converts into a queen-sized sleeper. Central air conditioning and ceiling fans in all rooms add to your comfort.
Oh, and if you don’t feel like driving, you can walk to the Food Lion, restaurants, or liquor store right across A1A. There's not a condo or house on the beach more convenient than this one!
This is a non-smoking condominium. Sorry, no pets
New Smyrna Beach was voted "Best Beach in Florida" by the readers of "Florida Monthly Magazine" and has numerous art galleries, live theatre, and shopping and dining establishments.

A little bit about us... We're best friends from our college days back at UF (Go Gators!). This picture was taken at Bondi Beach near Sydney, Australia on our most recent big adventure. We both grew up in Florida, one in Merritt Island and one in Longwood. In 2009, we decided to invest in the beach we've spent so much time on and dearly love. We try to rent it out as much as we can and also spend a little time there ourselves. One of us is a nurse anesthetist in Denver. The other is a consultant in Washington, D.C.
Please come and visit. We know you'll love it as much as we do!

Why The Owner chose New Smyrna Beach
We grew up on and adore this beach. We consider it a great investment, both financially, and in good times ahead!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed your time with us, and that we were able to fix the drain pretty quickly. On your advice, we've purchased some more towels and washcloths. We've also put in a new DVD player. I'll look into flatscreens and see if I can find one that fits the budget. I'm so glad we'll get to host you again next year! Thanks for keeping us informed!
We stayed at this Condo for two weeks, it was clean and very comfortable, we had beautiful weather and saw several Sun rises from the Ocean View. We had another couple stay with us the first week, the couch that converts into a bed wasn't very comfortable to our guests, our King Size bed was perfect. We could of used more towels and wash clothes, also some of the towels and wash clothes weren't very nice, had stains on some of them, I went out and bought some new ones (brought them home with me). The VCR did not work, wanted to watch some movies, but couldn't. Just one more thing, they need to take the old rusted grill off the balcony, it was nasty. But all in all we had a wonderful time there.

Owner's Response: Hi and thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed your stay! I didn't even realize we had a grill out there, and have had it removed. I've got washcloths and towels on my to buy list, along with a DVD player and will get those out there in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for keeping me informed, and come back and see us again!
Enjoy watching the sea turtles nest and hatch during the season. This truly unique experience has some rules involved, so make sure to ask and obey the rules surrounding the protection of these endangered animals! If you're timing is right, watch the Shuttle launch over the ocean from Cape Canaveral.
