New Smyrna Beach offers swimming, walking, biking, surfing, fishing, kite flying, shopping... or just lay back & listen to the ocean. Enjoy the spectacular sunrises & sunsets, gaze over the beautiful white sand, watch the dolphins, pelicans, sand crabs, & sea turtles. Downtown New Smyrna Beach is a quaint town with waterfront seafood restaurants, surrounding marinas, deep-sea fishing charters, casino cruises, river cruises, nature preserves, & the Ponce Inlet fishing jetty. New Smyrna Beach straddles the Atlantic Intra-coastal Waterway & is really two towns in one. It is part island & part inland, oceanfront, & riverfront, complete with two downtowns.
Just a short distance south of New Smyrna Beach is the Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000 acre national park nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River. Canaveral National Seashore is one of the longest stretches of pristine coastline in the United States. NASA & the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services protect this long barrier island from the construction & development so prevalent on many Florida beaches. The park provides visitors with hiking trails, campsites, a restored turn-of-the-century home, museum & a visitors’ information center, which provides ranger-led educational programs throughout the year. It is home to more than 250 species of birds and land animals. Sea turtles often do their nesting along the beaches and the Seashore. Canaveral National Seashore serves as a refuge for endangered & protected species of Florida wildlife.
Grocery stores & restaurants are not far away. Nearby attractions include St. Augustine (oldest city in the U.S.) just 45 to 50 minutes away; Daytona Beach, 25 minutes away including the Daytona International Speedway; Cape Canaveral, 30 minutes away; & Orlando attractions just over an hour away (Disney, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, LegoLand & Gatorland). Take an airboat ride in Central Florida and see alligators in their natural environment. Port Canaveral's Cruise Terminal (35 - 40 minutes away) has all the large cruise ships going to the Bahamas, etc. Take a weekend trip there while vacationing in New Smyrna. So much to do in the sunshine state! ****BE SURE TO CLICK ON VIRTUAL TOUR LINK BELOW RATE INFORMATION****

My husband (Barry) and I, along with another couple (Ken & Jenny), purchased this condo even before construction started on the Karpathos building. We owners live in North Orlando and fell in love with the Minorca condominium which has water on three sides of the complex. We wanted the top floor (penthouse) and were fortunate to choose everything from cabinetry to flooring.
Susan Logan purchased this condo in 2006
We chose this location because of the newness of the condominium and the sheer beauty of the land/ocean where the complex is situated. It has the feel of a five star gated resort community with fabulous ocean and intercoastal views and garage parking.
We can see the boats come in from the Atlantic Ocean through Ponce Inlet and head to the intercoastal. Also we can watch the surfers as the waves are best here at the Inlet in New Smyrna Beach. The amenities at Minorca are awesome. We have two pools available to us, tennis courts, a picnic pavillion, boat docks, a great clubhouse, workout room and saunas.
We feel this particular unit is our second home as we have been coming back now for five years straight.
What we love the most about this condo is the spectacular view; it is truly breath-taking.
The unit itself is tastefully decorated and provides us with all we need to be comfortable. We always find it clean and ready to move in. Being retired, we enjoy cooking at home during our multiple month stay, and find the kitchen well supplied and easy to work in.
We love to walk on the mile and a half boardwalk in the Dunes Park right below us. We have such easy access to that as well as the beach. And walking along the inlet with the lighthouse across the water is lovely as well.
When we have guests, they usually walk in and exclaim, “WOW! How did you find this place?”
A short walk to the Minorca marina across the street usually brings views of dolphins, beautiful sunsets (which we also enjoy from our front balcony), and an opportunity to fish or see what others are catching.
We like the friendly little town of New Smyrna Beach with its quaint shops, art festivals, a variety of good restaurants, etc. In addition we have access to all the amenities of Minorca and museums, concerts, parks, etc. to be found in Volusia County and other nearby counties.
It is easy and comfortable to work with the owners, as they are very responsive to any questions or concerns we may have.
A recent guest sent a thank you note remarking about their “five star” stay with us. We give it five stars as well.
This condo is beautiful. It has been professionally decorated and you will want for nothing. It has a beautiful view, spotless clean and a parking spot in the garage. We have stayed at Minorca several times, but this by far has been the nicest. The owners are great to work with and return your deposit in a timely manner. Terrific rental.
We stayed at this condo for the month of April and loved it! The view was spectacular, we spent many happy moments on the deck enjoying the views of the ocean and intercoastal waterways. Our walks on the beach were relaxing to say the least. The condo itself had everything we could ask for and the owner, Susan, was a delight to deal with. We hope to come back to this unit next year.
We won’t debate the other reviews, because their positive experience mimics ours.
Minorca has plenty of amenities, but this Karpathos get-a-way unit has views that rival the Greek Dodecanese islands.
The interior has a great floor plan for roomy entertaining, or quiet chilling.
We came home relaxed, refreshed and excited about plans to return.
The best part: the hosts treat you like family…the good kind!
A little piece of paradise - only 45minutes from Orlando. Our stay at Minorca by far exceeded our expectations. We were expecting the "standard" condo unit - WRONG! At first we thought we were in the wrong unit. We thought it was the model. Professionally decorated, spacious, well appointed and IMMACULATE. The attention to detail was amazing. Everything from the full sized kitchen that was fully equipped with up-to-date appliances and cookware, wonderful bedding, fluffy towels (they even thought of beach towels).The walk- in laundry room was decorated. The only thing we needed to provide were our groceries! The "view" from the balcony was spectacular! The ocean, inlet and lighthouse were in full view. Mesmerizing. The pools, tennis courts and fitness center were in great condition. Minorca even has a pool table at the clubhouse.
We loved the location of Minorca - only a few miles from downtown New Smyrna. Great restaurants, friendly people. There is always something going on at the beach.
Kudos to the owners! They were friendly, helpful and eager to see to our needs.
Would we rent this particular unit again? ABSOLUTELY! Minorca is PARADISE!
This was our first stay in NSB and won't be our last. We loved our stay in this beautiful condo and can't say enough great things about it. The owners were wonderful to deal with right from the initial contact to after we left. We felt completely comfortable at this beautiful condo which had the most spectacular views of the ocean, Ponce Inlet and the Intercoastal Waterway. The place is as described, very well maintained, close to restaurants and other activities. We have spent many years vacationing in Ponce Inlet and are very happy that we decided to venture 'down the beach'. We highly recommend this property to anyone searching for that perfect beach stay. We hope to be able to return next April!
