Rob and I grew up visiting NSB for vacations/surf. He now works in pharmaceutical sales for animals and I am a stay at home mom/wife that also does accounting/real estate. Rob is from busy south florida and I'm from land-locked central florida so we decided we needed to move to find a more relaxed pace/coastal location and happily settled here in NSB in 2005.
Kate Rosenberg purchased this cottage in 2005
This cottage is a guest house on the same parcel as our personal home. We loved both homes for their historic construction (high ceilings, large windows, wood floors, charm). This cottage is only 675 sq ft, but still maintains a light and airy feel that we believe makes it quite comfortable. Upgrades have been made for important features, such as a large walk-in shower, King sized bed, full-size appliances, and washer/dryer that accompany the unit.
Of course, the biggest draw about the property is the location. Right on Riverside drive, still close enough to the beach(2mi) to ride a bike, but far enough from the hustle-bustle of busy beachside. It's a truly relaxing and beautiful area of town. Historic homes, walking distance to the shopping in old downtown/farmers market/art galleries. The river is beautiful from the dolphins, to the sail boats...It's why we chose to live here!
My wife and I had a wonderful stay. The location for us was perfect. A 30 second walk to the inter-coastal with your own pier. One could fish, have a drink of wine at sunset and watch the dolphins swim by and the Pelicans diving for fish. This sweet little house was a 5 minute walk from the beautiful old section of New Smyrna with lovely restaurants, shops, museums a Saturday morning market and often art exhibitions. If you crossed one of the bridges only minutes away you entered the more touristy Smyrna with excellent restaurants, bars and one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Close in proximity were tons of nature including Merritt Island, the current site of the Kennedy Space Center with bald eagles, exotic birds and alligators. Our hosts were warm and very helpful. The local residence were also extremely friendly. The cottage was charming however the kitchen could use a little updating! We recommend this cottage to those who are not looking for gated ritzy accommodations or huge shopping plazas close by. This place has a real nice feel!
Our family stayed at the little red cottage for our spring break trip and it was perhaps our best vacation to date. Kate was so incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. She gave us amazing suggestions on where to eat, what to see and where to take our little ones. We loved that she let us use their bikes, their dock and fishing poles (my husband and our oldest spent hours fishing and caught, photographed and released countless different amazing fish, it was always an adventure to see what they would pull up next), and even showed us how to paddle board. We took a couple of day trips to Orlando, saw alligators, manatees (our kids called them huggy whales) and many other local wildlife at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and spent hours swimming, finding shells and playing at the nearby beautiful New Smyrna Beach. Local and nearby sights and restaurants were also fabulous. It was nice to have a place for our preschooler to nap, keep up on laundry and eat in. We definitely utilized the grill too (it's a gas grill by the way as I believe it is listed as a charcoal grill and we ended up buying one just like it for our home because it worked so well!). The cottage was so incredibly comfortable, especially the beds, well decorated and clean. Loved it all!! Thanks for helping make it such a great stay Kate! There is so much to see and do here and such a comfortable place that we wish we could have stayed there longer! Truly a gem!
The Little Red Cottage is located in an area that will take your breath away upon arrival. The family who rents the cottage is sweet, helpful and charming and helps to create a fun and relaxed ambiance. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving Dinner as a family in the cottage and had plenty of room to eat and relax while my little one played outside. While staying at the cottage you are offered kayaks, bikes...etc. It is like staying close to friends. The only problem is finding time to enjoy all of the beauty and available activities so make sure you plan to stay long enough to fit it all in. Thank you for a wonderful visit.
My husband and I came for a long weekend just when a cold wave hit New York City in November. Good time to visit! We were so glad we rented the red cottage instead of staying in an impersonal hotel room. It's larger than it looks from the photo. An airy living room/bedroom, eat-in kitchen, second bedroom, bathroom with large shower. Furnished with flair. Less than a block from the intracoastal waterway, a few blocks from the old downtown on Canal Street. Kate was welcoming and helpful with dining recommendations and fixing the tv when we used the wrong remote.
Drive down to the Canaveral National Seashore to enjoy the beach without condo buildings. And check out the ancient mound of oyster shells that was the tallest skyscraper of another era.
We were delighted to visit New Smyrna Beach for the 4th time! It's a wonderful town full of great food, people and of course the beach! This was our first visit to the Cottage, and it exceed our expectations for comfort! Cozy bedding, beautiful decor, a kitchen with all the necessities! It was perfect for my family of 3! The owners were a lovely couple and were there to make sure our stay was enjoyable! I was so impressed by this little gem, I suggested to my sister she bring her family!!
We arrived on a Friday evening and The Little Red Cottage was welcoming with warm lit rooms. Kate was right there to inform us of the layout and if we had any questions.
Bikes and Kayaks were offered to us immediately and we took full advantage. It was so nice to be able to leave the car behind and ride to the beach and throughout New Smyrna. I love this location!!! Walk to Canal Street which is located in the Historic District...which is within minutes to all different types of restaurants and ice cream stores.
The Little Red Cottage comes with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Kate is working hard on getting a better internet connection....at this point it is frustrating.
The beds were very comfortable with the best linens offered and plenty of pillows. Great full size washer and dryer is also included.
Thank you Rob and Kate
