Overview

Bethune Volusia Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our pet free, non-smoking, luxury apartment is situated on the no-drive beach, only one mile from Canaveral National Seashore.

Featuring 1500 square feet of living space, this condo has a wonderful view of the ocean from the master bedroom and lounge and the inland water from the other two bedrooms.

The unit sleeps a maximum of 8 with a king bed in the master bedroom, queen, 2 x twin and sleeper sofa in the other bedrooms and living room.

The living room has a huge corner unit and a leather recliner - enough for all your party.

The dining room seats 6 people, with three more seated at the adjacent breakfast bar.

The kitchen is fully kitted out for if you want to cook - or you can use the communal BBQ in the grounds. If you don't want to cook - then JB's Fishcamp is just across the street, or there are numerous restaurants within a short drive.

You can use the seasonally heated communal pool on site, or if you're feeling more energetic, shuffleboard or tennis court. Just across the street at the public park, there is another tennis court, basketball and volley ball and a children's playground, with a fishing jetty, where we like to go to watch dolphins feeding.

In warm weather there are usually manatees around there - so the area is known locally as 'manatee cove'. Dolphins also frequently swim by in the ocean and if you are lucky you may see a passing whale.

We include all linens and towels - just need to bring your own beach towels and toys please.

A local family look after our condo and our renters and they maintain it to a high standard so that it feels more like a home than a rental property. Many of our guests come back to us year after year and have said they think of it as their own second home.

About Liz

No photo yet - don't want to put people off! We're a professional couple from the UK (Liz is a Chartered Accountant, Neville and engineer) with twins who are both engineers too - one in industry, one in academia. We used to own a condo in Orlando, then discovered and fell in love with New Smyrna Beach in 2000, so we've been renting property out for nearly 30 years and have used feedback from all our renters to make our homes as nice as we can for our beach visitors. Lots of our renters come back each year - so we must be doing something right!

Liz purchased this condo in 2003

Why Liz chose New Smyrna Beach

Having bought another unit at Chadham by the Sea, we chose this one for its amazing views. We never tire of watching the ever changing ocean. Beautiful sunrises, passing dolphin, seabirds, the moon on the water at night. And then from the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, there is the view across the intracoastal with wonderful sunsets.

What makes this condo unique

We love walking on the beach every day and just sitting on the balcony watching the surfers and children playing on the beach. If we have visitors with small children, we love the little park across the road with swings and climbing apparatus - for older children there's volley ball, basket ball and tennis - and for us, we can watch the manatee, the dolphin and the pelicans fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been enjoying New Smyrna Beach for over 40 years and have stayed in a variety of condos along the south Beach as well as some dune dwellings on the north beach. Chadham 412 is the best we have encountered yet. My wife and I have been enjoying this condo for at least 1O years . Here are some of the features that cause us to return year after year.

It has a configuration that gives maximum viewing pleasure. The master bedroom and the living room are both on the sea side with floor to ceiling windows and have great access to the balcony that directly overlooks the beach and surf. Also the rear entrance way provides a lovely balcony for viewing sunsets across the uncluttered mangrove to the west.

It is large. Three bedrooms(master: king; 2nd: queen; 3rd: twins; all comfortable) and a large living/dining area. Two baths and plenty of closet space.

The unit is carefully maintained and equipped. The cleaning people do great work and the maintenance when needed is prompt and effective. The unit comes equipped with all the supplies that you would expect of such a rental. We have never been disappointed.

The Chadham facility is wonderful. It has been recently ungraded and the results have been terrific. New Elevators, landscaping, pool deck and furniture. The pool is large and extremely well maintained by a full time overseer who treats the pool as is special ”baby”



As winter comes to a climax here in Chicago, we look forward to March when we can head south to our haven at Chadham. We are glad it is there awaiting our return.

Best of all

  • 5 of 5

There is no way to adequately describe this property. It is simply the best. We are repeat renters, this is now our 3rd year, (we're up to 2 months a year) and we intend to continue. Over the years, we have stayed in many rentals/timeshares and this is by far the best of anything we've tried.

The best ocean view and the best river/intercoastal view, I've seen. On a relaxing day, the hardest decision we have is what view do you want to watch. The sun shining on the ocean is great but the sunset over the river can not be beat.

Looking out the master bedroom floor to ceiling and wall to wall windows or the balcony which is off living room, it's like you are on the beach and the balcony is nice size and nice to eat lunch.

The beach is great. My wife and I regularly run/walk along it for hours a day and you can find some nice shells. There's a beach side park that surfers use regularly and you can watch them from the balcony. As I write this review there are people getting into 3 ocean kayaks right in front of the condo.

The master bedroom, which has a king bed, is huge not like some rentals where you don't have any walking room with a king bed. We've used the carpeted floor between the bed and window as our exercise area. Master bedroom also has its own bathroom and a large walk in closet. My wife loves hearing the waves at night.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, dresser and 2 end tables plus a wall length closet for plenty of hanging clothes. 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds, an end table between them, a dresser and also has a wall length closet. From both of these rooms, you can look out their window and see the river/intercoastal waterway. They share a bathroom.

We've done Disney 2 years with the grandchildren, it’s an easy drive (about 1 to 1 1/2 hour), so you get the best of Florida beach and Disney. A short walk across the street is a children's park, which our grandchildren love to play at when they are not digging in the sand or swimming. The park has a board walk over the water and we've seen manatees swimming there. Dolphins can regularly be seen from the condo balcony swimming by in the ocean.

Liz and Neville provide great service. Last year the complex internet was inconsistent, so they installed internet in the unit for my use.

The unit is near the south end of the island so it is uncrowded with limited traffic going by but still just a short drive to a wide range of restaurants, stores, etc.
