Our home is a two bedroom, two bath house on a shell road. It has hardwood floors, and a casual, beach decor. There are many windows, which give it a bright and breezy feel. The kitchen is small but quite adequate for cooking at home. It has an oven and four burner cooktop, a refrigerator and a microwave. There is a TV in the living/family room; this room also has a queen sofa bed. Each bedroom has a bath. One bathroom (with bathtub) also opens onto the hallway into the living room. The home is upstairs. The ground floor is unused, but does have a washer and dryer and another bathroom. We use the space to store beach chairs and umbrellas. This ground floor is furnished. There is parking for at least two cars, or a car and a 20 ft boat.
The home is on the beachside of New Smyrna Beach north of the north causeway.

My husband started coming to New Smyrna Beach as a boy, and we both now enjoy the relaxation and beauty of many days at the beach. Our home is simple and charming. It is quite comfortable and many children enjoy its quiet street and excellent location within walking distance to the beach. The people in this small beach town are very friendly. Simply shopping downtown, walking with an ice cream cone, stopping at a restaurant or enjoying an old car show and art festival are the pleasures of vacationing here. We love an evening walk on the beach, and the children can spend the entire day building in the sand or playing in the surf
We enjoy the small town atmosphere. New Smyrna Beach has grown correctly. The streets are quite adequate, the traffic is light, there are many local festivals, and the people are friendly. Most of the condos and hotels are at the southern end of the beach. Private homes like ours are at the northern end.
We love to fish, sail, play golf, and walk on the beach. We often fish in the surf after others have left the beach for the evening.
Our family had a wonderful time at this home. We were in town as our 2 sons were in a surf contest at the inlet. The location was fantastic as the kids could wake up early and walk to the beach to A) see the sunrise and B) see if the waves were good enough to wake up early for! The blue book that the owner keeps is very informative and they provide everything to make you feel as if you are in your own home. It is a great vacation destination, the location fabulous, close to beach, close to restaurants... We will return !
This modest home is just a 5 minute walk to the soft, sandy beach. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The owners are extremely nice, great with communicating and they left a very helpful book of places to eat, things to do, places to golf. They also provide beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas and children's beach toys, if you need them. The wood floors are well kept and don't creak despite the high humidity.
The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood about a mile north of Flagler Ave. which is the main shopping area in New Smyrna Beach. You can see people walking, running, riding bikes or mopeds. The beach is not crowded at all and the cars driving on the beach are few and driving at the posted 10 mph speed limit. There's plenty to do if want (Disney, Universal, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona International Speedway) or you can relax in the quiet New Smyrna Beach lifestyle.
My son, an air traffic controller, enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and totally forget about his job. Not something easily done!
We have stayed at this home many times and enjoy the whimsical yet classic feel. As an older home it has wood floors and brightly colored bathrooms which the owner has accentuated with colorful paint. The bed rooms are roomy with comfortable beds. The living area is relaxed and makes for easy entertaining. The entire residence is upstairs, which gives a bird's eye view of the surrounding area. It is an easy walk to the beach and a convenient drive to New Smyrna's business district. For those who appreciate clean comfortable living in a beach community, this is the perfect place.
