House description was accurate. It was clean and well maintained. It was some musty smell coming from a/c(blower is located in garage). After we installed air freshening shits on furnace filters and air fresheners in rooms smell was gone. Good location, close to everything (close to the manatees seeing place). It is real ocean view house, very close to beautiful beach. All amenities as described, all what you need to spend a good time of your vacation. Kids were very happy, we were happy too. Lego-land was not too far away. Owners are very nice people, very helpful and easy to communicate with. Thank you, Brian and Kathy. Obviously, we will be visiting again and we will recommend it to our friends.
The house was a typical beach house. The owners were very accommodating and
welcoming! We loved the location. Hop, skip and jump to beach! The screened in porch was great to sit out and relax or enjoy a meal. The crows nest had nice views and the beach cart was very helpful. Although the house could use some updating in the kitchen and some other areas overall we had a wonderful stay and the owners are awesome!!
The house was more than we expected with the very clean and spacious living room, bed rooms, kitchen, bathrooms, and dining room. The game room and games would have been great if we'd had time to use it. The garage was a very convenient place to keep our fishing gear and beach things. We could just roll our loaded cart right in. The fact that there was no busy roads to cross getting to the uncrowded beach was a major plus along with the fact of the beach being just steps from the house. The owners were great to work with and answered many questions we had, plus gave us insights to things in the area we never knew about even though we had been to New Smyrna several times. We had stayed in a condo before but even though this house cost a little more I would definitely recommend it. We would definitely rent this house again and hope to in the future.
The house is even better looking in person than in pictures. The beach is private and literally right around the corner with no major streets to cross. The owners are very nice and answers all questions promptly. Our family had a wonderful time. The neighbors were also very kind and helpful. When we arrived, the house was very clean and inviting. We would definitley book this home again for our next family vacation. We had a great time!
Everything was better than expected. The owner was responsive and accommodating. The neighbor was an additonal source of friendly info and directed us to a hidden park where we watched dolphin and manatee. The house has plenty of room and we especially loved the game room which was perfect for an evening with the family. My children and grandchildren came for the day and we ended up spending til the wee hours of the next morning playing cards, pingpong, and foozeball to music. We used the BBQ downstairs to make a beautiful dinner enjoyed on the screened patio upstairs. I spent the rest of the time on the roof deck or steps away on the deserted no-drive beach. we are going back again. Very reasonal rates, too.
This house was very nice; roomy and comfortably furnished. The location was great, no busy roads to cross to get to quiet and uncrowded beach, very close to National Seashore. The owner was very helpful in suggestions and advise for our stay. You can watch sunrises and sunsets from the roof. Be prepared to supply your own toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap. You may wish to bring your own sand chairs, also, as the ones at the house were rusted shut. Unless you have an SUV to transport the canoe or kayak to Bethune Park to launch them, it's difficult to make use of them.
Even so, I would definitely recommend this property.
This charming home is located just steps from the ocean and its quiet beaches as well as walking distance to the Indian river and Mesquito lagoon, with some of the best fishing in Fla. Put the Ocean Kayak or the Canoe (Included with the house) in the lagoon for a day of fishing, birding, and dolphin/Manatee watching.
Take a walk on our secluded beach and look for sea turtle nests, you may even see the hatchlings or the mother Turtle laying her eggs at night. Want a little more action, just an hour from Disney world and Universal Studios and Hary Potter. Send the day in Canaveral National Seashore and the tour the El Dora House, serca Mid 1800s, and explor the lagoon as Columbus saw it . Kennady Space center 45 min away..
Golf: Fifteen minutes to New Smyrna Municipal Golf course. Very reasonable rates and pretty good play.
Many other courses near by.
