About the property

Walk out the front door & a few steps later you are on the wide expansive beach (NON DRIVING SECTION)! This modern town home (with a full basement living area) has been redecorated & is a perfect getaway for couples or families. Picturesque views of the Atlantic from the den, master bedroom, & the only screened porch in the development. This small, quiet 12 unit complex features town home living with a private pool, tennis court, & garage parking for one vehicle. Three BR's are upstairs (2 Kings, the other with twins), & a Rec room on the basement level with add'l BR (with twin beds & a full bath).Open, bright, cozy, with lots of light - a true beach home. Modern appliances & a washer/dryer. Unit has high speed wireless internet & cable TV. 2 of the 4 bedrooms have televisions. Den and bonus room have brand new flat screen LED TV's.

The development is very small - only 12 units (very private). With the location of our particular unit being as it is (in the very front), you feel like you are the only one in the complex.

New Smyrna Beach Information: New Smyrna Beach is a beautiful city that is nestled among the moss-draped trees along the shores of the picturesque Indian River in Volusia County. It’s located on the central east coast of Florida, completely surrounded by bodies of water; the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Intracoastal Waterway to the west and Mosquito Lagoon in between the two. New Smyrna Beach is definitely a laid-back coastal community; free of the crowds and noise that plague other Florida beaches.

With a very rich history, New Smyrna Beach has the distinction of being the site of the largest single attempt at Colonial settlement in the U.S. Dr. Andrew Turnbull, a Scottish physician and entrepreneur, established a colony along the west bank of the Indian River in 1768. Today, the town of New Smyrna Beach is home to approximately 21,000 permanent residents who welcome visitors to their island town.

It’s a small town full of southern charm and home to a vibrant historic downtown and beach side shopping boutique, a multitude of parks and outdoor recreation possibilities and just a short drive to other Florida attractions such as Daytona Beach, Disney World, Canaveral National Seashore, and the Kennedy Space Center.

Please kindly DO NOT inquire about this property if your party exceeds 8 persons. Having more than 8 places a strain on the amenities of condo development and the unit as well. There are many other places in New Smyrna Beach that can accommodate your needs. Having more than 8 can be a basis for forfeiting your rental deposit. THANK YOU.

Wonderful, private screened porch - perfect for early mornings watching the sunrise or late afternoon cocktail hour. No elevators to ride or stairs to climb like many of the developments on the beach. Quick in and out access to the beach or pool. With only 12 units in the complex, the feel is very private and not over crowded

Needs cleaning & updating!

  • 3 of 5

The unit was well situated and the configuration of bedrooms worked for us but it was dirty and in need of some serious updating. Not sure if the dust and grit was a result of the unit not having been occupied for a while, but the floors and counters were sticky and it was dusty everywhere. The furniture is likely original to the unit (35 yrs) and shows it. There were big stains on the cushions and we layed down towels before sitting or reclining to avoid strangers "head sweat". The pool was closed up which was disappointing as I am a lap swimmer. This could be a great place with a little cleaning, paint, simple repairs (doors kept coming off the track), and a small investment in new furniture.

Owner's Response: Very sorry for your less than excellent experience at our place. The roof was replaced because of Hurricane Matthew 48 hours prior to your arrival and the cleaning crew did come in the next day. We were warned by the roofers that dust potentially could be an issue because of the banging on the rafters from above. We will discuss that issue with our cleaning crew. As for the pool being closed, I was not aware of this issue. I apologize. We have consistently had 5 star reviews of our place as you can see but appreciate the constructive feedback and will look into the issues mentioned.

Unbeleivable beach front property

  • 5 of 5

This town house is better than the pictures show. The master bedroom has a full window/patio door open to a great beach view. The small patio off of this bedroom is great for morning relaxation.

The screened patio on the ocean side is awesome for dining or just relaxing and listening to the waves.

The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Décor is nice with a feel of home. Very relaxing atmosphere throughout.

This is a great place for a family with children or just adults.

If you haven't stayed at New Smyrna this place will make you want to come back again and again.

Excellent for families with small children

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this property justice. It was very spacious and open. It is a close to the beach as it looks. Being the only unit in this complex with a screen porch was a bonus especially at night when the biting insects came out. My children (four little girls) had a wonderful experience. We saw sea turtle tracks and nests, dolphins playing in the ocean, and even saw two manatees swimming off the coast. Having stayed in many ocean front and near ocean rentals on many beaches, I would say that this definitely ranks in the top 5 of our vacation spots. Even with 8 people staying there, we never felt cramped due to the extra living room downstairs. I would highly recommend this to anyone that loves to wake up to beautiful sunrises and sounds of the ocean 24/7. Thank you for your attention to detail. You can tell this townhouse was designed for family use.

A Million Dollar Experience

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough superlatives to describe this unit.

Million dollar view? Check.

Ocean just steps from your front door? Check.

Dolphins playing in the waves? Check.

Miles of immaculate beach no matter which way you turn? Check.

Plenty of space in the condo (4 BR/3 Baths)? Check.

Very well equipped (linens, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, beach equipment) Check

Friendly neighbours? Check.

Nice beachside community with good attractions? Check.

It goes on and on. You will never regret renting here and the landlord is a pleasure to work with. We have stayed here on two different occasions and would definitely go back again. I recommend this unit without reservation.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved your place!! The best vacation rentals always have signs of love and a certain homey-ness and yours has this in spades. Plenty of seating for meals or just hanging out together; great lighting, both natural and lamp, which is important for reading and game nights; a kitchen that lacks for nothing including tin foil and trash bags; beach towels and chairs, games, books, the extra gathering room downstairs for the teenagers....just wonderful all the way around. Loved the family pictures and artwork, beds were comfy, place was well maintained and clean!! Thank you so much for our beautiful week!!

Didn’t Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

I can corroborate all of the previous positive reviews of this condo. The location and view is exceptional, and the condo is well-appointed and comfortable. You just can’t beat walking 30 steps to the beach, especially a world class beach like New Smyrna. There were great waves for body boarding just about every day, and at low tide the beach is so wide that the NFL could schedule a few football games there and not miss a beat.

The end unit is very quiet and, during our stay, no one occupied the unit on the other side. All that we heard was the soothing sounds of the surf hitting the sand. The pool at Sea Winds is small, but surprisingly deep, and the sunken (by design) tennis court keeps the afternoon sea breeze from negatively impacting one’s game. The complex property is nicely landscaped and obviously well cared for.

We spent two weeks with extended family which included a total of 8 people staying here. 3 full baths were a big plus for our crew, especially when returning from the beach. The underrated screened-in porch serves as an excellent staging area for beach activities, drying off, etc. Lots of beach towels were supplied. Another big plus was a private parking garage with electric garage door opener, allowing us to keep the car out of the elements. The washer and dryer did a great job, with the dryer being especially quick to dry clothes and towels. The fridge had ice and water built into the door, including a convenient crushed ice option for ease in making specialty drinks. Getting to the grocery store takes less than 10 minutes and can be done by avoiding the main drag, A1A.

A couple of minor maintenance issues (poor cable TV signal in 2nd king bedroom, vertical blinds not operating properly in den and master bedroom) cropped up early in our stay, which isn’t uncommon for properties that are 30 years old with short term renters. Chip, the owner, was very quick to respond and immediately took care of these problems. He also refunded our full deposit within 7 days of our leaving. A responsive owner such as Chip makes a huge difference in the vacation rental experience. Thank you, Chip!

The only real disappointment I had was realizing that I don’t own this condo. I could live here the rest of my life in total bliss. Outside of that dream scenario, vacationing here is a most enjoyable experience.
