New Smyrna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront 4/4 Private Home Huge Ocean Terrace Panoramic Views, Disney 1 Hour

'Beach Nuts', is an oceanfront paradise that awaits the discerning traveler who enjoys a pristine coastline and spectacular views of the aqua Atlantic ocean from your own private 1000 sf terrace. Come see why our beautiful beach is consistently voted 'Best Beach in Fla' by Fla. Monthly Magazine and 'Most Beautiful Beach in Florida' by Florida Travel Magazine. See and hear the ocean from every room on the main floor of the house, including the Kitchen, Great room/Dining Room, Florida Room, Two of the four Bedrooms, and the 1000 sq. ft. terrace. The terrace wraps around the Fla. room; so it is about 20x20 on both sides of the Fla. room and 12x20 in front of it. You can find a shady spot most any time of the day to sit or the full sun is always available. The kids and your pets will love it! Yes, we are pet friendly, but please give me a call to discuss at (904)616-1527. There is no pet fee. The house has everything you need for an unforgettable, relaxing stay at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! All beds are Qcomfortable and new sheets and bedspreads are updated on a regular basis. We recently updated the Greatroom with two new sea blue colored full size sofas that are very comfortable to sit in while taking in the views of the ocean and watching TV. We have tried to accommodate you with everything one would need to have a great time at the beach: beach chairs and towels, kid's beach toys, beach towels, games, books, a new entertainment unit with a flat screen TV(cable provided)plus three other TV's, stereo,and DVD. Enjoy free cable & WiFi all over the house. Don't forget to view the sunrise and sunset over the ocean!!!!Enjoy the ocean breezes and aqua water of the Atlantic, while relaxing on the comfortable terrace furniture and patio tables and chairs or enjoy a cookout with the grill. For your convenience there's and outdoor shower to wash off after swimming at the beach. Walk down the 'sugar' white path to the beach and stop for a swing in the hammock strung between two palms by the ocean. Enjoy shopping or antiquing along Flagler Ave. Flagler Ave. is a quaint street lined with palm trees and brick sidewalks. There are plenty of 'cottage' boutiques, art galleries, and great restaurants abound. You can charter a boat and go freshwater or deep sea fishing or take in a round of golf at the numerous golf courses within close proximity. Remember that Orlando is only 45 minutes away and Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, MGM Studios and all of the the Orlando theme parks are approximately an hour away. Enjoy the best of both worlds- an experience of a lifetime staying in an oceanfront home and taking in the theme parks of Orlando. You won't want to leave and you'll get to be a 'Beach Nut' too!!! *Approx. 1 hr.15 min. to theme parks *20 min. to Daytona Beach *40 min to Kennedy Space Center * 1hr to St. Augustine *45 Min. to Orlando *5 min.to Canaveral National Seashore* 1hr to World Golf Village * Great restaurants * Sunrises and Sunsets !

This house is AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say it enough, this house is AMAZING..

This is our second trip to this particular house, and we are doing it again next year. The house is wonderfully located right on the beach, not close to it, not on the other side of the road from it, RIGHT ON THE BEACH! You wake up every morning to the sound of the waves hitting the shore, seagulls flying overhead, the sun rising and fresh ocean air hitting your face. Without busy lives, this place is heaven.

Our first trip we made in July of 09, it was myself, my husband and our three kids. When we arrived we were just in awe of the property, each room had its own bathroom, the house was decorated adorably and walking out the back door, well it just took my breath away. We could shop for groceries at the local store and come back to the house and cook our food. No additional expense for eating out every day, which is quite pricey with three kids. We wandered around Flagler Ave for trinkets and to have ice cream and the people in town are wonderful. We had arranged to go to NASA as well as Discovery Cove, they were a close commute from the house but the best part was not the tourist sites but coming back to this house. When we packed up to leave from that first trip I knew we would be coming back.

Our second trip was in December of 2012 and we fell in love all over again. What made this stay different was we brought 3 of our kid’s friends and my mother. That made ten of us total. There was enough room for all of us in this house and we could have even brought more. Everyone had an amazing time; we grilled out, hunted for sea shells, took walks on the beach oh and lazed around in the hammock on the beach. Everyone had a wonderful time and memories were made that will never be forgotten. It was the best after Christmas, Christmas present ever!! Oh and I forgot to mention that they have fireworks on Flagler Ave for the New Year holiday and they were awesome. Being from Wisconsin, that was new and wonderful!! I can't emphasize enough how wonderful it is to stay here, we travel every other year and this is by far my absolute favorite destination.

We are already in the process of planning our return trip for 2014. Susan is wonderful to work with and on top of things that it eliminates the stress of trying to plan a vacation. I can't thank her enough for all of the wonderful experiences we have had at this house and will have in the future. But I can keep coming back!!!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy to have this guest back again! The comments are typical of what I hear from others who want to love the feel of Old Florida while enjoying all the fun activities of New Smyrna Beach and Orlando. It's no surprise that this guest truly enjoyed just being at "Beach Nuts"..loving the sights and sounds of the ocean, grilling on the large terrace, people watching, swinging in the hammock, taking a walk to town from the beach for ice cream and shopping while shelling, and just enjoying many of the simple things that make for great memories. You'll love having 4 bedrooms (plus 4 air mattresses) and 4 baths plus the open floor plan of "Beach Nuts" that offers spectacular ocean views at all times. The ocean terrace offers panoramic ocean views day and night. Yes, there are theme parks to visit in Orlando, golf, fishing, places to discover, but then there's no place like home...and one of the most beautiful beaches around! Come have your fun in the sun...you won't forget it and you'll want to come back for more!!

Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5

My family lives in Florida, California, and New York so we don't get together as often as we'd like. In August we had a 4-day window of opportunity. Instead of staying at three different sites we investigated short-term house rentals that would allow us to stay together.This presented a problem because most rentals only offered a full week option. I must have contacted over 15 rental properties, but no one would consider a shorter stay. Susan was more than gracious to offer her house for the 4 days. The house is perfectly positioned to greet the sunrise and finish the day with beautiful ocean breezes. The screened porch and patio were great places to hangout. The kitchen was fully equipped which made mealtime easy. Washer/dryer, beach toys/chairs, paper products supplied. The brand new air conditioner was a blessing given the high 90 degree weather we had. The house is close to the downtown area and the grocery store. Susan was readily available by phone or text to assist in anyway. We had a lovely time at BeachNuts!

Wow! Everything we wanted in a place to ourselves.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time here! We usually rent 3 separate motel rooms for a week or so when we vacation in Florida. This year we rented this beach house, and I am so happy we did!! Not only is there plenty of room for 12 people, it has absolutely everything we could have needed. From the simple things that we needed, to the extras that made our trip great. And the location was Perfect!!!! Not too far away from the attractions that we always visit, but still in a great neighborhood that is right on the beach! And the view from the balcony, it was amazing! It literally had everything we needed, and extras for the beach, especially the kids. This house spoiled us, it was very clean, everything we needed was there, and you do not have to deal with the hassles of things like parking, rude neighbors, or crowded beach areas.. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone, especially if you have a lot of people, everyone has their own bedroom and private baths, so I really can't say enough about it, and the hammock and snow white sand just made it perfect. Not to mention the view:) It was amazing, we will definitely rent here again. Thanks for everything Susan, we really appreciate everything.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled to see another happy guest who had a great time at a very special piece of paradise! "Beach Nuts" is truly for someone who loves the island feel of the tropics and is truly "nuts about the beach"! I have had guests tell me they came with their kids to take in Disney and the beach, but they and their children found themselves longing to get back to "Beach Nuts" to kick their shoes off to play in the surf!! The hammock between two palms on the private path to the beach is a great place to enjoy a frosty drink at the end of a long hard day or enjoy the panoramic ocean views while grilling on the massive terrace. You will never be bored with so much to do because of the close proximity to the beach town minutes from the private house. You can walk on the beachfront in no time at all. I hope my guests, who become my friends during their stay, will come again!!

All I can is WOW.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation has been a life long dream of mine. Time on the beach, with family and relaxation. This home was the perfect setting! Everything that we needed was there, from soap to towels; plates to glassware. Comfy beds and a beautiful Florida room and even an outdoor patio!

Thanks to the owners who share this dream come true atmosphere.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to have such fantastic people stay at "Beach Nuts"😎. It's especially fulfilling when they appreciate the special essence of this very special piece of paradise. If you love the beach this is the place to be where you will be caught up in the rhythm of the waves and the sites of the ocean birds or Dolphins frolicking in the surf while you lounge in comfortable chairs on the 50 foot deck or swing in the hammock or simply sit on the sofas and drink in the technicolor sky and ever shifting colors of the ocean. Walk on the beach to Flagler Avenue or rent a bike to ride on the beach. Everything is just minutes away. Ride the waves with the boggie boards in the garage or bring beach chairs and umbrella!s to the beach. There are plenty of beach games and kids beach equipment in the garage. Just kick back and enjoy yourself . You will love it like I do, I hope and come back again.

Perfect Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

First off, if you are looking for a well maintained 50'so Beach Bungalow, Beach Nuts is your panacea.

We arrived 9 strong to a clean, we'll maintained beachfront gem. The two downstairs rooms have separate entries w/ ensure bath, perfect for my oldest and his gf, the college boys their dorm room. Upstairs are two more bedrooms with baths. The Owner, a doll, contacted us to make sure all was okay. Being centrally located between beach access points, this location wasn't as busy as other parts of the driveway on beach. There were plentiful towels, chairs and boogie boards for all to have fun. We had plentiful room to eat, play in and out, or walk your private path to the beach

We WILL be back.

Owner's Response: This guest has got it right! He is an architect and a builder so I am particularly flattered by the compliments. In my conversations with him he expressed an understanding that Beach Nuts is truly unique in that it is a true Florida experience that you just don't get every day. The ocean is ever present in this house and in the summer you wake up to ocean sunrises that rise from the ocean, visible from the middle of the living area and some bedrooms. You can see dolphin frolicking in the surf and beautiful birds flying by and the sunsets are just as spectacular. Young and old have a blast at "Beach Nuts". There are piles of beach toys in the garage and boggie board, beach chairs, umbrellas and, bocci ball, footballs, paddle boards, frisbees and more.. There are lifeguards on the beach in summer and the sand is white and not coquina like it is further south so it doesn't scratch you up if walking or boggie boarding. People love walking to Flagler Ave restaurants, shopping and entertainment from the beachside it's only a 10 to 15 minute walk. I get compliments all the time about the cute beach decor of the house. I've even heard it looks just like a page from Coastal Living. The beach itself will never disappoint since it is regularly voted "Best Beach in Florida by Florida Travel Magazine. I.hope you will come and be a Beach Nut too.

It has a table and 4 chairs and a new table that seats 6 on the terrace, a grill, & an outdoor shower to wash sand off from the beach. The Fla. room also has a table and 4 chairs. The hammock strung between 2 palms by the ocean is great & the sugar white private path to the beach is truly a Fla experience. The breathtaking sunrises and sunsets are incredible!!!
