Impressive home with so much to offer.....

My husband and I took a last minute vacation and were thrilled to find this house available. The owner was great to work with and super nice which made us feel good about our home selection before we even left for vacation. We live in a tourist town and have many friends that rent homes, as well as visit friends that come to the area and rent a home near us from someone we don't know. I guess you can say we have "high expectations" because we have seen the lowest of the lows and the best of the best. This house is very much the best of the best. The house was spotless, the bed linens and towels were what we are used to in our own home, and nothing meager or scratchy. We had all the comforts of home with up to date appliances and furniture throughout the whole house and a very comfortable bed. There were many added bonuses that I have never had available to me in a home that I have rented, or rarely see at the rentals around where we live. There was bikes in the garage free to use, a stack of DVD's on the mantle, an office with a printer that made the little bit of work we had to do on vacation not so painful, a toy box full of beach toys just steps from the beach, as well as a basket of freshly laundered beach towels just waiting to hit the sand.
The house sits in a perfect location just steps from the undeveloped National Park. The tiki hut is a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings or a glass of wine in the afternoons. Since it was cool some while we were visiting my husband and I would sit on the front porch in the afternoons in the warm sunshine, and watch the dolphins play in the lagoon right across the street. The view to the lagoon was almost as impressive and close as the view to the ocean from the back deck.
I can't wait to go back to New Smyrna Beach, and when we do go back this will be the only home that we would stay in. We did a lot of walking on the beach and I recognized several homes that I had enquired about while searching for a last minute rental, and I am so glad that this home was the home we chose. We very much enjoyed our vacation, and staying in this house was the icing on the cake.
