Very dated property

  • 3 of 5

Although it stated in description that property was updated in 2004, I'm not sure what part was updated. Both bathrooms and kitchen were extremely dated and mold was very abundant in master bathroom. The property management was called and they were very quick in coming out and recleaning the bathroom. Marilyn was exceptional in her diligence. Light fixtures in kitchen, which were originals went out couple of times and again Marilyn tried her best to remedy the situation but fixtures were so old they needed to be replaced, which was not done before we left. We won't be renting this unit again but did use the same rental company to rent another unit for next year in NSB.

Thank you for again for your review, and we look forward to your visit to New Smyrna Beach next year

Great deception

  • 1 of 5

This condo needs a major update. Do not be fooled by the photos. We were very disappointed by the overall appearance of all the amenities and cleanliness of the condo. Unfortunately there was renovation on the building that lasted 4 weeks! We would have liked to know that before we rented, then we would have chosen another place. The grounds, building and the pool are very clean and it is right on the beautiful beach. The area is secure and great for older people. We made comments to the agency that rents the condo and they did apologize for the inconveniences and said they would forward them to the owner. Unfortunately we do not recommend this condo to anyone unless it is updated. If it gets renovated, then it would be a very good rental with all the assets of a good vacation rental.

Owner's Response: Hello Nicole, Once again, we apologize to you for the inconvenience of the complex restorations during your stay. This is out of our control, but we do agree that you should have been made aware of the complex upgrades prior to your arrival. I would like to point out that the pictures in this ad were less than 9 months old when you stayed here. As well, in the description of this beach condo, we mention that the home was upgraded in 2004 (10 years ago), so there is no purposeful deception going on here. We are happy you found the location and cleanliness of the Silver Sands complex suitable to you, and hope you find a better match for you and your family during your next New Smyrna Beach stay.

This condo is spacious and very clean. The pool is very nice. The beach was the best part of the trip! It spanned for miles and was beautiful. The area is very quiet and great for older people. We went in the winter so there were no kids around.

We were disappointed that the building and grounds were being renovated and we were not made aware of this. It was not a huge problem, but we would have liked to have known this when we booked.

Other than that, we would recommend it to others.

About New Smyrna Beach

Located on Florida’s east central coast, New Smyrna Beach is a quiet seaside retreat at the southern mouth of Ponce de Leon Inlet. It is a small, historic city, and yet offers 13.2 miles of beach to enjoy. At only 55 miles northeast of Orlando, it serves as a favorite get-a-way destination for many Central Florida residents and has garnered significant notoriety as a surfing destination, often hosting American Surfing Professionals’ competitions. Surfers can bring their own equipment or rent from the numerous surf shops along the beach. New Smyrna Beach is the second oldest town in Florida and what many call ��the old Florida of yesterday.” Quaint shops on historic Flagler Avenue and friendly folks are what New Smyrna Beach is all about. Through the years, the City of New Smyrna Beach has maintained tight controls on growth, resulting in a limited number of low-rise condominiums being constructed. The city has also held strict parameters on beach traffic which, in addition to protecting beach goers, simultaneously protects nesting sea turtles. It is a nesting ground for loggerhead sea turtles, and Florida’s loggerhead population is the largest in the nation.

What to do in New Smyrna Beach?

Enjoy the many activities that come with staying right on one of the finest sandy beaches in Florida. You’ll find water sports, beachcombing, fishing, golf, shopping, and many local dining choices within walking distance. Once you stay here, you���ll want to come back again and again. We recommend that you call today to reserve your space as our condo books up very quickly. And, if you have never been to New Smyrna Beach in the off-season, find out for yourself why the locals feel it’s the best kept secret in town! New Smyrna Beach in the Fall and Winter is a great time to visit due to smaller crowds, beautiful weather, lower prices, and a beach that you’ll have practically all to yourself.

New Smyrna Beach Festivals

The downtown historic district, on Flagler Avenue, is the perfect location for a number of festivals throughout the year. The New Smyrna Beach Food Festival happens every April, offering a tasting of the beach���s best food and drink. The Cinco de Mayo celebration in May is a family fun time with live music and dancing in the streets. In August, the Shrimp and Seafood Festival begins, featuring tons of seafood as well as a display of unique arts and crafts. Jazz lovers come in the droves for the city’s annual Jazz Fest in September, featuring live music on street stages and in local venues around New Smyrna Beach.

New Smyrna Beach Museums and the Arts

The Atlantic Center for the Arts is the backbone of the lively New Smyrna Beach arts scene. The arts center has received great recognition for its eco-friendly design. The complex of buildings houses art exhibitions, performances, and is home to an artist-in-residence program. There are several art galleries in the downtown New Smyrna Beach area, such as Florida Galleria and TaDa Gallery which showcase works of local artists. The city is home to the Black Heritage Museum which has a collection of artifacts that date back to the 1920s.

New Smyrna Beach Parks and Recreation

Not only is there plenty to do on the beach, the New Smyrna Beach area includes many parks which offer camping, fishing, hiking, and other activities. Lake Ashby Park, a 64 acre waterfront park, offers many outdoor activities such as primitive camping, fishing, canoeing, horse trails, sport courts, and a boat ramp. Smyrna Dunes Park is 73 acres of land giving visitors of New Smyrna Beach the opportunity to view wildlife and sand dunes up close and personal. The park features elevated walkways, picnic areas, observation areas, and a pavilion.

Proximity to World Famous Attractions

Visitors of New Smyrna Beach return year after year because of the location, affordability, and wonderful family atmosphere. Disney World Resorts, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are all only a 90 minute drive away. Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Sea World are only 75 minutes away. And the famous Kennedy Space Center is only 45 minutes away.
