|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Well kept & maintained 4 BR/2 BA, 2-story home on a quiet street on south New Smyrna Beach. Our location couldn't be more perfect. For starters, we are only a few steps from the beach (non-driving section). Next, you can walk two blocks to the famous & popular rustic restaurant/bar, JB's Fishcamp. Only 2 blocks south is the boundary for the Canaveral National Seashore Park, consisting of 25 miles of pristine Atlantic Ocean beach and dunes and is the longest expanse of undeveloped land along the East Coast of Florida If seeing wildlife is your thing, manatees are often seen grazing at a County riverfront park with a pier, which is only three blocks away.
Our section of the beach has no driving and very limted public parking, thereby making it practically private. With a vacant lot next door, we have ample parking for your RV, boat and friends.
From our place you can beach walk less than 10 minutes and cross into the Canaveral National Seashore Park where there is absolutely no development. You explore the beaches & dunes in their natural pristine state. If people-watching is more your thing, you can walk the same distance northbound and you will be at Mary McLeod Bethune County Beach Park (see links to both Parks below). There you will find surfers, a lifeguard and plenty of bodies soaking up the sun (also tennis courts, basketball courts and fishing dock across the street, riverside).
Why pay an arm & a leg for a beach vacation when you can walk a few steps and stay for half the price? For what you'll pay for our place, you can afford another trip. Or, better yet, stay with us twice as long!
Check out our reviews and see what our past guests are saying. We've only been renting our home for just over a year and we've already had several repeat guests. That should tell you something.
My name is Debi Lake and I manage our family vacation home. My in-laws, Pat & Jerry, had this home built in 1980 for weekends and summer vacations. After some damage that occurred during a 2005 hurricane, we did a total renovation that took several years to complete. To help offset the cost of that renovation plus the overall high maintenance of a beach property, we decided to accept weekly rentals. Please see our guest reviews. Everyone loves our place and I know you will too.
Debi Lake purchased this house in 1980
We began renting only a few years ago, after our renovation. We loved the Atlantic beaches and always wanted a family vacation home. With Orlando as our home base, we wanted some place within a reasonable drive and New Smyrna was the perfect choice. It exactly a 1.5 hour drive for us door-to-door. Also we loved the remoteness that 'Bethune Beach' (South NSB) offered. It's like our own private beach (no traffic).
We love being so close to the undeveloped beach of Canaveral National Seashore park, and yet only a quick jaunt away from restaurants & shopping. We love having two separate, upstairs/downstairs family/TV areas. The kids can shoot pool, play video games and watch their shows downstairs, while we enjoy other activities upstairs. We love our large upstairs outside deck, especially in the mornings with a cup a coffee and late afternoons with a refreshing adult beverage. It doesn't get better than that!
This house is wonderful! Probably one of the cleanest houses we have ever rented on the beach. I would absolutely reccommend this house for anyone who wants to vacation by the beach. Great location, street was quiet. Don was excellent to deal with when making reservations, always responded to my emails, text no matter what. The house is just perfect. Husband and I was only there for a few days while we were in town for the races but after those were all over we enjoyed our last night at the house playing pool and sitting on the upstairs deck. The pics really don show how great a vacation home this is!!!
We really enjoyed The Lake house. It was exactly what we were looking for in a beach getaway. The house provides plenty of space, is clean, neat and furnished in an easy comfortable style. We felt very comfortable sharing the space with our four legged kids and grateful for owners who allow well behaved pets. Steps from the beach and BJ's Fish camp was convenient and far enough south on the beach for plenty of privacy. Loved it and hope to go back again soon!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here during the New Years Holiday. The neighborhood is quiet and you can sit on the deck and listen to the waves crashing on the shore. The pictures here do not do the property justice. If you rent this property you will not be disappointed. While here we visited the Manatees in Blue Springs State Park, there were 166 Manatees in the spring. We lived in the area for over 10 years and never were there that many. We had members of our party fish the intercoastal waterway and had a great time.
Absolutely perfect place to stay. Plenty of space for everyone , clean and all the cook wear you need. My husband loves to cook and was very satisfied. We were right across the street from the beach and saw sea turtle nest every morning. We went clamming and had fresh seafood daily. Bring your bikes, sun block and bug spray too. Noseeums are bad but cant be helped. You can put a big fan out side and spray yourself and be good. The was perfect and location makes you feel secluded enough. Debi was quick to respond to any email or phone call. Kids loved it too and patio is safe for them (no exit on top). If you have small kids the beach just north (walking, biking or car ride) is perfect for them to have room to run and play with shallow water. Debi list local places to eat, we have been here before and all the choices were good.
We had a wonderful time. The place was exactly as listed. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach so people could come and go as they pleased. Owners were very quick to respond to questions. We come to New Smyrna Beach every year with our family for spring break and have stayed at a different house each time, but after staying at the Lake House we believe we have found a house to return to.
This home was exactly as portrayed and fit our family perfectly! It was a very short walk to the beach, which was very private and had no cars. The kitchen was well stocked. We had 3 generations of our family sharing the home. The beach chairs and toys were great for the toddlers and the pool table provided entertainment for others. Family rooms on both levels were convenient when the toddlers were taking their naps. The deck was a secure outdoor play area. All in all a great escape from winter!
County recreation park is three blocks away with tennis, basketball, children's playground and fishing pier. Also two boat ramps are close by.
On Sundays at the Canaveral National Seashore Park, 2-hour pontoon boat tours of Mosquito Lagoon & the estuaries are given by National Park Rangers (for a small fee).
