Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in this condo with our grandchildren and had chilly, windy weather. We were all very comfortable inside and had the benefit of the great balcony space. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen had all the utensils you could possibly need. We are hoping to go back in the spring!

Great location, responsive management, dated & dirty accommodations

  • 2 of 5

We really enjoyed the units proximity to the ocean, as well as the heated pool. The interior of the unit was disappointing at its best, and disgusting at its worst. All of the furniture is dated and worn. Many dining chairs had loose, wobbly legs that made everyone nervous during use. The "family room" furniture was stained and smelled of body odor. The bathroom towels were old, stained, and many smelled strongly of mildew. The master bathroom vanity had what appeared to be dried blood on the counter top. There was hair in the master bathroom bathtub. The floors throughout the unit were dirty, sandy, and had dried stains and/or sticky spots in various locations. Open food stuffs (crackers) were found spilled throughout one of the cabinets. The cookware is old and worn. The interior of many cabinets smells of... something foul. The bed linens were worn and pilled. Many pillows literally stank. We removed them from the pillow cases and found them to be stained yellow and red. We found extra pillows stored in the front two bedrooms closets which showed active mold growth on the pillows themselves. The unit smelled of mold and mildew. We went to Walmart and purchased new pillows, bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths. Great Ocean Condos did offer to reimburse us for our purchases. We informed Great Ocean Condos of our issues with the general cleanliness of the unit and they offered to send over the cleaning staff right away. We found Great Ocean Condos to be very responsive, but we did not choose to take them up on either offer.

Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Shorehom off and on for 22 years. It is definitely our choice on the beautiful no drive beach. There are many of the same tenants that we see every year. Everyone is friendly and inclusive. The pool and beach areas are both so inviting and always clean and well cared for. This unit is very nice and great if you have 5-6 people. Very clean and comfortably furnished. Definitely recommend!

Great view but...

  • 3 of 5

This condo has a great view with a lovely beach for walking. Swimming in the ocean was great. The unit does not have any beach chairs which made sitting on the beach impossible for my 87 yr old mother in law. The building is very quiet with a nice pool and good beach access. Parking was plentiful. The location requires that you drive if you wish to go to restaurants, bars- nothing within waking distance. can't leave any window or patio door open as the salt air corrodes the window/door frames, so no fresh air. The living room had only one arm chair not two as shown in the picture and the two small side lamps were dim and inadequate for lighting. The wifi for the building was painfully slow. The appliances (stove, fridge, dishwasher, washer dryer) worked well and were very quiet. There were only 6 place settings of cutlery which was inadequate with 6 people staying in the unit. We stayed two weeks and we would have used a maid service once during our stay to freshen things up but this service was not available. I would give this unit a 6.5-7.0/10 rating.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shorehom by the Sea #45.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean when we arrived and beautifully decorated. Great amenities. Awesome view. Great updates and directions from VRBO. A few suggestions I would make is to have on hand a few beach chairs and a few more adult friendly games and videos. We would definitely stay there again.

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.
