This special Condo with east and north exposures offers unobstructed views of the ocean from the living room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom and tiled balcony. Natural light brightens all rooms with plenty of windows and triple sliding glass doors.

Our condo is great for enjoying views of the ocean, surf and beach while seated in the living room, fixing a vacation meal in the kitchen, eating in the dining area, or relaxing in the master bedroom.

About David Bennett

Lois and I are retired school teachers, counselor and athletic director. Grand kids keep us busy traveling to keep up with them in two other cities. We have always loved the ocean and try to get to our condo as much as possible. The best thing is having the 5 grand kids at the condo and on the beach with us!

David Bennett purchased this condo in 1999

Why David Bennett chose New Smyrna Beach

We have always loved the beach and planned our vacations around beaches. When we vacationed in New Smyrna Beach in the 90s we liked it so much we came back summer after summer and finally decided to purchase a condo in The Southwind. We purchased our condo in 1999 and have continued to enjoy it, even more now that we are both retired.

What makes this condo unique

The greatest thing about the condo is of course the beach. It is wonderful to relax on the beach and watch the Ocean. The view from the balcony, living room, and master bedroom is wonderful. New Smyrna has a small town feel but still has plenty of great restaurants, supermarkets, stores, movies, unique shops, surf shops, etc. It is quiet and safe but still just 90 minutes away from the attractions of Central Florida.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Since moving to Florida in 1967, I have been coming, with my two daughters, to New Smyrna Beach each summer. Over the years, our week with the girls which began with 2 daughters is now, 2 TV for every age after a day at the pool, beach, walking, and basketball. Even the kitchen and table were more than adequate. We are hoping to find a week available next year. Thanks for providing such a nice place for us.

Spectacular Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spring break get away. All rooms were spacious including the bathroom with lots of closet space available . View was spectacular from so many rooms including beautiful sunrises. The kitchen was very practical many cooks could be in the space at the same time. The condo building and surrounding areas were clean and beautifully kept. The elevator got us quickly up and down with minimal wait time. All the extra activities available were a great benefit to the children with us. Basketball net, tennis courts, shuffle board and we were able to get to the owners lounge with a pool table, ping pong and great views. The ocean was fun to play in always appearing to be low tide. Great for skim boarding. We have plans to go back.

Best Condo EVER

  • 5 of 5

Furniture was plentiful and comfortable. Printed directions were on all items that might be needed or used and easy to follow. Access to owner's room on the top floor was a great surprise with ping pong and pool along with extra TVs and tables. Kitchen was well stocked and no surprises. The restaurant book that had reviews and menus was an excellent tool to narrow the choices to research on our smart phones. There were plenty of activities outside to keep the family active. Tennis and shuffleboard were in perfect shape. Pool was used by many guests and being able to relax at the beach without going down onto the sand was very convenient.

Nicest location on the beach,

  • 5 of 5

The view was beautiful and everything better than promised. The building was meticulously cared for the entire week. Loved the huge pool, the patio w lounge chairs near the beach. the beach was beautiful with soft white sand and fantastic views. The condo was very clean with all amenities as described. we love to cook so we make sure to look for a kitchen that delivers that "vacation view "which this condo DELIVERS!! The owners were very helpful, kind, and take great pride in sharing their love of the beach and lovely condo. We enjoyed the quiet sounds of the ocean waves and the stunning sun rises each morning . Planning a return for next year so don't book my week.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the week. The weather was terrible so we spent a lot of time indoors and a lot of time cooking in the fantastic kitchen . Everything we could possibly need was there and the windows in the kitchen was such a help. I love the corner unit. The third bedroom was on the other end so my teenage granddaughter had her OWN space. We will be staying there again next year.

The photos tell the story

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly what you see in the website photos. It's a large, comfortable apartment situated right on the beach. Our two-generation family of six spent a delightful week here.

Each of the rooms is large. The balcony was comfortable all day long because it faces northeast, so is not bathed in sunlight on hot days. It catches all the available breezes.

All the beds were large and comfortable. Having three bathrooms was also a real treat.

Location on a non-driving beach is also a great advantage.

Owner's Response: Glad your family had a enjoyable vacation at our beach home away from home! We have always been pleased with the spacious size and the brightness of the condo. Nothing is better than to have the grandkids or friends with us for a stay at the beach. Dave and Lois
