About Wanda Poole

After 30 years building a Real Estate Company, we elected to retire. Now our family is in the hospitality business purchasing unique or historic properties to offer to vacationers. We own & operate several historic vacation homes as well as a horse farm in Pennsylvania Dutch country -- please visit for more. There you will get a feel for our style, approach, and experience in this field. Our son Alexander and his wife, Katie & our daughter Lyndsay play critical roles in managing ongoing operations.

Wanda Poole purchased this house in 2014

Why Wanda Poole chose Historic District

While visiting Wanda's sister in nearby Mims, we were introduced to the Edgewater-New Smyrna Beach area. We were deeply attracted by the comfortable, casual yet vibrant feel of this wonderful 'old Florida' community. Being water lovers we also fell in love with the rustic & soothing Indian River Aquatic Preserve and it's diverse, undeveloped tranquil waters.

'Water's Edge' was the perfect property. Designed and built in 2007 by a landscape architect couple, it offers a spectacular waterfront setting along with exceptional quality details throughout.

What makes this house unique

Why be 'near the water' when you can be on the water? Kayak to a nearby barrier island beach. Go fishing or shell collecting. Take a dip in the pool or sit in the heated Spa as you watch the boats cruise by. Want more diversion? It's only 3 miles to the New Smyrna oceanside beaches. Only 60 miles to Orlando (Disney, Universal Studios, etc ). And only 45 minutes to the popular Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach. You could spend months here and not do the same thing twice!

So happy!

  • 5 of 5

Wow did we love our stay for our annual family reunion trip. Such a beautiful home and they thought of everything to make our vacation relaxing. The kids swam non-stop in the pool, we fished off the pier and watched the sunrise. So many birds, manatees and dolphins right off the dock. The kids tried for days to catch all the little lizards. The rooms were set apart nicely so everyone had quiet sleeping spots no matter who was up late/or early. The kids loved feeding the Koi each morning and giggling at the little ones taking small nibbles. This is our 12th annual vacation using VRBO and this is one of the top houses we've stayed in. Can't say enough good things.

PS Highly recommend renting a boat for the day and checking out the local waterway and stopping for Outriggers for lunch, one of the best days ever.

We had such a wonderful time during our vacation stay at the Waterfront Property. Everything from the property, the amenities and the overall experience working with the owners and the property managers was exceptional beyond words. Thanks so much for helping to make such a memorable vacation. We would highly recommend this location and are hoping to stay again in the future. The Apple family

We chose this property for the size and the view for a small wedding (about 15 people). The pictures are beautiful online, but this property is absolutely breathtaking! We had four couples staying in the house and we were more than comfortable, where everyone had their own space. We stayed at the house every night, hung out around the pool and just relaxed. Our idea of a perfect vacation. It is the best house by far that we have ever vacationed at. While we were there we were trying to figure out when we would be back. I can't say enough about Wanda, the owner. She was always easy to get a hold of prior to us arriving and quick on the responses. There wasn't any issues on our arrival, with the stay or the house.

Birthday Race Week

  • 5 of 5

We came to Florida to celebrate a 50th Birthday at the Daytona 500. My husband wanted a place along the Intracoastal Water way and found Waters Edge. This home exceeded our expectations with its location near many attractions - Daytona, Cape Canaveral, the beach and even Orlando. The wonderful layout provides a comfortable gathering space in the gourmet kitchen and living room, while allowing everyone to have their own private space. We enjoyed evenings around the lanai and fireplace along with a little fishing off the dock. An unforgettable vacation still has us talking about this gorgeous home. We definitely recommend this to anyone looking to have an incredible vacation in the Daytona / New Smyrna Beach Area.

Beautiful Wedding and Vacation Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I searched long and hard for a perfect location for our wedding and I can definitely say that we found it at Water’s Edge. The owners were more than generous by letting us take a tour prior to committing to this location, but once we saw it, we knew this was the place for us!!! It is absolutely beautiful! The little garden area in the back behind the pool deck was perfect for us to say our vows and the elevated pool deck, stairs and dock were a great location for our family and closest friends to watch. We then stayed the rest of the week with our family and the three master suites and the “kids” room was perfect for us all to spread out. The furnishings and decorations were amazing and there was everything you could need. The pool was the hit of the week and we spent many, many hours in there listening to music on the outdoor speakers, sipping our favorite beverages, and enjoying the scenery of the river right down the dock. The dock is great for the kids as we had crab pots out and caught quite a few blue crabs during the week. We also fished, caught bait and even searched for hermit crabs in the river during low tide. Everything about our special wedding day and week was made possible by Water’s Edge and the wonderful owners who were very responsive to our emails and incredibly accommodating. I would highly recommend (and already have to my friends) Water’s Edge as a great get-away location. I know that my wife I will be back for sure as Water’s Edge has a very special place in our hearts!

New Smyrna Beach & Cape Canaveral Natl Seashore
Car: necessary

New Smyrna Beach is just a 3 mile drive and is the longest stretch of public beach in America recognized as the #1 beach in Florida (Orlando Sun) part of which is a drive on. New Smyrna Beach is one of the top 20 surf locations in the world ( National Geographic).

Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World all in Orlando are about an hour from Waters Edge. Makes a great day trip after which you can leave the congestion and crowds behind and return to the quiet low key neighborhood of Edgewater.

There are 4 golf courses within 8 miles and we are about 10 minutes to popular Flagler Avenue with its art galleries, boutique shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream shops and more. Cape Canaveral national Seashore with the Barrier Island dunes, nature trails, lagoons and historic sites is a 10 minute drive. The Kennedy Space Center is only a 45 minutes drive.

The Daytona International Speedway and the Jackie Robinson Stadium is about 20 minutes away.

There is world acclaimed fishing for redfish, speckled trout & snook within a kayak's reach of the dock in the famous Indian River Aquatic Preserve. There's also an abundance of Tarpon, Jacks, Pompano, Kingfish and many other species offshore via the Ponce Inlet (only 2 miles by boat). The kids will have a ball.

The lush, tropical landscaping that surrounds this lovely home make for your own private slice of paradise.
