First family vacation
At 1st we was a little scared that the property wouldn't be as beautiful as the pictures because we didn't know when the pictures were taken and the house lived up to our expectations. When she tells you all you need is your clothes that's all you'll need the house came with everything that we needed from pots and pans all the way to beach chairs and Toys. The neighborhood and the house instantly made us feel at home. Me and my Fiances( I Proposed to her here) children loved the pool it was clean and even had it cleaned while we was there. trust me it was very hard leaving this place. The only thing I could ever complain about was that the gas bottle on the grill was empty but that was an easy fix as I was able to get a new one right down the street. Anything that we ever needed was literally in walking distance from the beach to shops even the grocery store was right around the corner. If we ever decide to vacation in new smyrna this house is at the top of our list to rent.
Hi Jeff, I'm so glad you enjoyed our Manatee and congratulations on your engagement! Hopefully you'll make a yearly tradition of visiting New Smyrna Beach. Thank you for taking such good care of our house.
Perfect vacation getaway
If you are looking for great house for your vacation this is the house to choose. The house was a short walk to the beach, extremely clean, fully stocked with everything you will need for a week, a nice pool for afternoon swims, and Jackie is very responsive if you have any questions.
Great property, close to beach
Perfect for a week stay. Property had everything we needed. Kitchen well stocked and plenty of beach supplies and linens.
Beautiful House/Great Location
My family and I have been coming to New Smyrna for over 10 years. Jackie’s home is immaculate and well kept. The mattresses were comfortable and the oversized couch was a great place to relax after a day at the beach. The pool was a big hit with my nephews. It is about a two minute walk to public access to the beach and a state park with restrooms. Jackie was extremely helpful with the booking process and got back to me right away with any questions I had. All of the beach equipment is new and you have everything you could possibly need! I highly recommend renting this place you won’t be disappointed!
Beautiful well kept house! 3 minute walk from the front door to the beach! Owner is exceptional to work with! I would recommend this beautiful house to anyone!
An Honest Review
The location of this house is really great, short walk to the beach and reasonable walk to Flagler Avenue. Lots of beach towels and the beach umbrellas were useful. With some attention it could be the immaculate rental the owner advertises. The boogie boards in the garage were all broken, the pool float would not hold air, handles on the paddle ball game rotted and broken, the screen at the top of the pool area was falling off allowing for bugs to get in, the hair dryers in the house are quite old and do not blow out air properly, the shower rod in the master fell down several times while using the shower, and the kitchen faucet did not turn off unless it was in a certain position. The pool looked nice but it was quite cold for April in Florida. The third bedroom is advertised with a ceiling fan, please be advised you cannot use it as they have it disconnected. When I inquired as to where the clock radios were (since they are in the description of each room) I was instructed by the owner that most people use their phone. Yes she did have one brought, but only after making me feel like this was an unreasonable request. If some of these things can be addressed the next renter may not be disappointed like we unfortunately were.
I sent a welcome email to this guest and received an email the next day with several things that she wasn't happy with. I immediately addressed each of her concerns- new clock radio, fan and kitchen faucet (that she admitted they didn't need) and offered to reimburse her for a new boogie board. I explained that we disconnected the ceiling fan in the bunk room when we put in the bunk beds to make sure no children would get hurt. So I was a bit stunned by her 2-star review with issues she never even told me about. There's not much I can do about the pool water temperature, it's solar-heated and the weather has everything to do with that. There are probably 10 pool floats in the garage left by other guests and I'm sure most of them hold air but she mentions the one that doesn't? If the shower rod keeps falling down why hasn't someone else mentioned it to me, it's something my cleaning crew would definitely have noted. I'm really sorry this guest spent so much time trying to find things wrong with our house instead of enjoying our beautiful area.
