About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Get away from the crowds!! Our condo at Chadham by the Sea is in a small gated 52-unit complex one mile from a national seashore - we're the last condo south on the 'non-drive' beach. We updated our condo in late 2014 - brand new kitchen; 4 flat screen TVs now; mood lighting in the ceilings of living room and master bedroom; new master bedroom; redone bathrooms; private wifi; land line phone - check it out!

Email or call for a Quote; do NOT do the BOOK IT NOW process...this puts control to VRBO rather than you/me.

And the ocean views! Look at our pictures to note the views; if you don't see these views on other websites its because they don't have them! Read our Reviews - our guests love us!

New Smyrna Beach is one road up and down the beach; easy! So why be crowded on the north end; come on down to the south end (5 minutes by car) and have privacy and peace of mind on the 'no drive' part of the beach.

Our second-floor direct oceanfront condo (we are in the north building) offers the sounds, smells, and breezes of the ocean - without ever leaving the condo! (Take a virtual video tour of our condo by clicking on the link below.) We have totally unobstructed views of the ocean as far as the eye can see...both up and down the beach.

We love it there and have received many positive comments from our guests. We have the experience and reputation to meet our guests needs. Our attention to detail makes a difference.

Wake up to a magnificent sunrise viewed from the full glass wall in the master bedroom. Hear the break of the waves - we're on the 2nd floor, 100 feet from the ocean, with unrestricted ocean views from the balcony, living room, dining room and kitchen, in addition to the master bedroom.

Our unit is a roomy, 1400 square feet, with another 200 square feet of balcony, all on one level. We've decorated it 'casual beachy'. The 3 bedrooms each have a flat screen TV: a King bed in the master bedroom, a pillow-top Queen in the second bedroom and two twins in the third bedroom. There is plenty of closet space; a large double-sink master bathroom, and a washer/dryer in the unit. Both the living room and dining room are tiled; and the kitchen is fully-equipped - all the way down to spices.

Our home is on the second floor, easily accessed by elevator or the stairs.

We think of New Smyrna Beach as 'old Florida'. In fact, readers of Orlando Sentinal newspaper voted New Smyrna Beach as the best beach in Florida! We know you will love this home as much as we do. For the continued comfort of all of our guests, we do not allow pets or smoking.

Shop and compare - we think we have one of the best values on the beach!

Why Beth Taylor chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We looked all over Florida and fell in love with the small town 'old Florida' feel of New Smyrna Beach. It was also close to family and attractions in Orlando. We prefer the east coast of Florida to the hotter muggier west coast. We love it there and can't visit enough...future retirement location and happy to share it with guests until then! We have gotten lots of wonderful feedback on our place from guests.

What makes this condo unique

We watch dolphins from our 2nd floor balcony in the mornings and then in the evenings stroll across the street to the intracoastal and watch the manatees play. We are across from JB's Fishcamp (restaurant). On the 'non-drive' beach. Salt-water pool...if you haven't tried this it is luxurious!!! Small complex; not overrun. One mile from National Sea Shore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Beth. Yes, we had a great time. I'm sure my note that I sent the week we returned ended up in the spam folder. Your vacation condo is very nice. We felt right at home and enjoyed the golf courses. Hopefully we can rent it again sometime!

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely perfect for us! It was beautifully decorated and supplied. My husband has MS and mobility is an issue but he was able to manuever easily in the condo. Because the weather wasn't so great this week - we ended up cooking more in the condo than we had originally planned. The views were simply amazing! We would definitely stay again!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Walked in the condo and was immediately impressed. Very clean, roomy, and tasteful. The kitchen was filled with anything one would need...very impressed. Of course, the view was incomparable. Very private beach away from the hustle and crowds, but just a short drive to anywhere. One mile away from the National Park which was well worth the admission pass price. ($10/car) Super open beaches, manatees and dophins up close, and very informative info center. JB's Fish Camp a short walk away with reasonably priced, good, and plentiful food. We also went on a pontoon tour which we got on Groupon for $47/4 people and loaded at JB's. Again, relaxing and affordable with wildlife up close and very friendly personnel. Saw manatees and dolphins at Bethune park (just a hop, skip, and jump away) and decided to take kayaks (again from JB's) to see them from the water. A very short trip that even us old ladies could do :) There is a dine and cruise we took in Daytona for $19.99 each which we would also recommend and was only a 40 minute drive.

The only thing we would have done differently is to have gone to the Dollar Market before going to Publix. Publix was VERY expensive and Dollar Market had everything we needed for much less. And it's much closer to the condo.

We got the rest and relaxation we were looking for. Waking up to the sound of the waves and sitting on the good size balconey was something I'm going to miss.

We were very lucky that on our second last morning, a sea turtle had come ashore and laid her eggs. How cool is that? Only wish we could be there when they hatch.

My mom, sisters, and myself would most definitely recommend this condo to anyone planning a trip to the area. We are hoping we'll be able to go back next year.

Thank you to the owners for sharing your condo and furnishing it so well. We felt like we were at home.

Couldn't be happier with our stay at Chadam by the Sea. Beautiful view from a very clean, roomy condo just feet from the ocean. Beth is wonderful to work with and we can't wait to go back again!

Spacious and clean with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is spacious, very clean, highly organized, and right on the beach. It is perfectly laid out for beach viewing--the living room and master bedroom have full-wall glass windows/doors, so you can easily see and hear the ocean from those rooms all day. Master has two full length glass walls--one straight and one angled, enabling perfect view of the sunrise from the king sized bed or the two comfortable rocker-recliners in the room. On warmer mornings, the balcony also provided amazing views, but it was great to be able to enjoy the water, the sunrise, and the birds even when it was too cold to be outside first thing in the morning.

The condo is well supplied with basic pantry items like salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar, making it easy to prepare meals. Dishes, cups, silverware, utensils, colanders, pots and pans, etc. are all well-stocked and clearly labeled as to where they should be, so it's fairly easy to find everything. Dollar General food market is 4 miles away, and a Publix a few miles further north, so we were able to cook in almost every meal, keeping our food prices down and maximizing our time at the ocean.

Bethune Park just across the street has a boardwalk overlooking the lagoon, making it easy to watch the sunset. We also put our kayaks in there--be aware of the tides as the lagoon is very shallow and there are oyster beds scattered throughout. A tennis court, basketball court, and well maintained bathrooms are also nice perks at this small park. A casual evening church service with a short homily and communion is also held every Sunday night at 5 (or 6 during the summer) on the beachside of Bethune Park--bring your own chair.

We had another great kayaking experience at Canaveral National Seashore--plenty of birds, and we saw 3 or 4 dolphins on the hunt for food, and even a seagull trying to get the same fish a dolphin was hunting. Again, be tide aware. We had some bites from no-see-ums when we kayaked along the shore, but otherwise were basically bug free. However, at certain times of the year bug spray would be essential. Visitors center at the park has an informative video about the area and the park.

Beth was very easy to work with, and gave us the most thorough information and instructions of any condo owner we've rented from. I certainly hope we can stay here again in the future.

Perfect Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this comfortable and well located condo. It is just up from the National Seashore, making it the perfect place to commune with nature. Condo had everything we needed for a truly relaxing vacation in New Smyrna Beach. Thank you so much to the owners for sharing with us.

Owner's Response: Hi! Thank you for your feedback as well as the subsequent conversation on why 4 stars instead of 5. You were disappointed in the linens and cookware. On these, I came down a couple of weeks after your stay and agree with the comment on the linens; not sure where my cleaning service found and used the pilly sheets on the beds and I was very upset. This has been corrected and my apologies! Next time give me a call while you're there... I could have had them swapped out asap. On the cookware I understand; I have never stocked items of the same quality as my personal home since they do not always get the same care being a rental. Recently I added a couple of new items and removed some beat up items; striving for functional. But yes if I lived here as my full-time home some of the kitchen items would definitely get an upgrade. Thank you again! Beth

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $100
Damage Deposit $300

NEW in 2016: VRBO has added a Service Fee that is calculated by them and paid directly to VRBO in the first payment.
Saturday-Saturday rentals required during Spring and Summer Seasons; more flexibility during other periods. "Monthly" rates are available and are defined as 4 consecutive weeks of Sat-Sat; inquire for rate. See Registration Agreement for Cancellation Policy. Also please note we pass along the credit card fee (3.5% domestic and 6% international) if you choose this payment route; to avoid this fee please request a Quote and give me the opportunity to direct the payment process...that way you can use free vrbo echeck or mail me a checks. International travelers and payers are tricky; please let me know if you live outside the USA so that we can plan way in advance on payment. I discourage the vrbo "book it now" process that directs you down a mandatory credit card path for payment and this fee will get charged to me; then to you. Please call or email me to confirm Quote and availability. Happy to help! Thank you, Beth 678-612-3516
