Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

Ocean view three bedroom apartment over looking adult and kiddie pool.

The Seaward Condominium is renown for its location, located on the white sands of New Smyrna Beach; discribed as one of Florida's nicest and safest beaches. When it comes to relaxing with family and friends, I consider New Smyrna Beach and my luxury apartment as the best. On the beach you will have visions of being on a tropical island or on a distant European location of the French Riviera; in words repeated by many 'it doesn't get any better than this'.. Recently revitalized with the expenditures of over a million dollars, the Seawards presents a crisp and sparkling beachfront community. Blessed by our beach location of approximately five blocks south of Hills Avenue, (access ramp onto the beach), you will be at ease with your family and activities with the knowledge that cars are restricted from driving south on this portion of the beach. Conveniently, for the adventurist, the vehicle beach entrance ramp is with in a half mile of a Northerly drive. Witness many of the beach activities as you drive, volleyball, kite flying, and running bases, and of course do not leave out the building of Sand Cassel's. Continue your drive past the Breakers beachfront restaurant, located next to the exiting ramp on Flagler Ave. Too soon to exit and have a bite to eat at the Breakers or other fine resturants off Flager Ave; continue your scenic drive north to Ponce Inlet. At the inlet witness the Surfers catching the waves, or join them with your own surf board. View with appreciation the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse on the north side of the inlet. Promise your self to drive over the Port Orange Bridge for a closer up front view of the lighthouse. Lunch within in the shadow of the lighthouse at the local popular seafood restaurant. From your vantage, view the returning fishing boats, closely followed by the ever-vigilant Seagull's.

More relaxed by staying at your vacation home. With your morning beverage in hand; step out side onto your balcony, from this second floor vantage, relax and enjoy your beverage while over looking the pool, simultaneously enjoying the grand view of the ocean. View the morning Sunrise and distance shrimp boats, witness beach enthuses negotiating the stairs to the beach for their morning walk or jog. In the evening from this same perspective, witness the day coming to closure with family and friends frolicking in the pool. Located to the right of the pool house, anxious appetites with picnic table set, wait patiently for the barbequing family chef to remove their meal from the grill. The next day comes and you wake up to a beautiful morning. You venture out and feel it is too hot for you and your family to cool off in the crisp waters of the Atlantic or the sun kissed temperatures of the full size Pool or children's Pool. You contemplate retreating to your Shangri La to relax, knowing that it is fully air condition and is well furnish, with the accommodations of three bedrooms, a pull out sofa and a fully equipped kitchen; you are encouraged with lighter thoughts and the enjoyment of your vacation.

It is difficult to summarize all that New Smyrna Beach and my rental unit location has to offer. Children pass the hours away in the pool,'(pool heated January through March)'or with pail and shovel in hand, build Sand Cassel's on the beach. Mom and Dad, family and friends relaxing at poolside or the beach. Every one is content while listening to laughter and witnessing the frolicking of the children. Various day trip destinations with-in an hours drive. A rental unit that is maintained and continually up dated, comfortable with accommodations of no less than an expensive hotel or guess houses. Perouse my web site. View pictures of the three bedrooms, kitchen, living room, dinning area, full-size washer and dryer and bathrooms. You are limited by your imagination of how you enjoy the accommodations, the comforts and amenities that are afforded by my rental unit, and notable location of New Smyrna Beach and the Seaward Condominium.

Departing thoughts of a enjoyable, fun loving vacation will linger as you return home; these same thoughts will compel you to rebook for another fun filled vacation.

Live, Love, and Laugh. Its a blessing we wish you; and a experience that will bring you back to my rental unit.

About Richard

We have owned our unit over forty years. My three children spent their summers and periodic vacations at the Seaward. During the summer, we met families from neighboring states as well European visitors, of whom some we are still in touch with. It has always been our second home with up dates and accommodations that were no less than the comforts we enjoyed in our primary residents. Our rental unit is enjoyed by short term vacationer that just want to chill out, and long term winter guest who not only enjoy the rental accommodation, but also the entertaining and shopping amenities' of New Smyrna Beach, not to mention the surrounding areas of Daytona Beach, Orlando and Kennedy Space Center. We maintain a positive out look in life, our personalities reflect it, as does the decor in our rental unit.

Live Love and Laugh is a motto we reflect on.

Richard purchased this condo in 1974

Why Richard chose New Smyrna Beach

Originally, 40 years ago when I purchased In New Smyrna Beach at the Seaward Condo, there were no condominiums in our area that were over three stories high. The Seaward offered a four-storied complex with each unit having a view of the beach. More so, and other than in its location on the beach is that a washer and dryer is in every unit. Also, the availability of two elevators to carry up heavy luggage or groceries; two factors that other condominium's did not offer at the time. The area has grown and other condominiums are several floors higher with multitudes of apartments.

The Seaward by comparison is a smaller with forty-eight units, and cozy. Over the years, the contributing friendliness of the people and welcoming allure of this small community has always entice vacationer to repeatedly return. We believe the vision of the community allure that we shared when we purchased our vacation home, remains today as a primary attraction

What makes this condo unique

In its own way the Seaward and its New Smyrna Beach location is unique. Besides enjoying the friendly relaxing Seaward community, its proximity to popular vacation spots like Universal Resorts, Disney World, Kennedy Space Center and the home of the Daytona Five Hundred. We always valued it as our retreat for relaxing and family fun. A five-minute drive to Canal St, two minutes more to Flagler Ave, and combined, you have local shopping, restaurants, boat marinas, and a drive on beach entrance. What is unique to us, with all the surrounding amenities, we never felt far from the conducive imagining of a remote Tropical Island, and we d it; so will you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, children and I totally enjoyed our two week stay in your apartment. The three bed rooms were very comfortable, we all appreciated the available beach toys for the children and the convinces and proximity of the elevator. Our family looks forward to a return visit and have already recommended your apartment to our parents and friends.

It's a very relaxing atmosphere, great for families! We will definitely rent from this homeowner again. Highly recommend!

Perfect for these first-time beach visitors!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for my two nieces and their children to see the ocean for the first time. It was the perfect size and great location, right on the beach. The AC wasn't working when they arrived, but Jenny got it fixed right away. They loved being there. Thanks for making this trip special for them!

We had a great time. Seaward is located conveniently to restaurants and shopping, with excellent beach, and ocean view. The Condo was neat and clean. The Kitchen had a good collection of pots, pans, utensils, and plates.

A Great Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at Richard and Sue's condo (June 2017). We had a "revolving door" of relatives who joined us for a couple of days each and everybody loved it! The wide courtyard between The Seaward and its sister complex provides a grand view of the ocean and a family-friendly atmosphere with plenty of elbow room. Each day our group particularly enjoyed sitting under the umbrella of one of the poolside tables within view of our unit. From there it was just steps up to the 2nd floor condo or down onto the beach... a perfect "base of operations" for us! Indoors, the kitchen had all the tools and dishes we needed. The washer and dryer worked great - nobody likes to put on a damp swimsuit! The beds were comfy and even the 8-year old who opted to crash on the sofa slept well. The air-conditioner provided blessed relief after all day in the sun. And after we made a quick call to Jennie to find the password, the wi-fi and cable tv were particularly appreciated by the kids! Excursion-wise, the cousins enjoyed Turtle Mound (beware of mosquitos) and the interesting video at the Canaveral Seashore visitor center. We also drove to Titusville to watch a rocket launch... fabulous lift-off view from "CrackerJack's Restaurant". Thanks Richard and Sue for making your comfortable condo available to rent at such an affordable rate!

Owner's Response: Suzy your review is very accurate to the many amenities my condo offers. I am glad you were able to watch the rocket launch, it is certainly a trill to watch. If in the future, plans bring you back to New Smyrna Beach, please keep me in mind. Richard

Great location -- close enough to "tourism," but a "private beach" feel.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this location to any family looking for a relaxing place to stay. The location is perfect in my opinion; the pool and beach are very relaxing, and no worries about being overpopulated. The location allows for multiple "touristy" things to do within a short car ride. The Cape Canaveral National Seashore is one direction, and even Daytona Beach is close.

The condo offers a place to relax. While we were there, it seemed very few folks were "out and about" which gave us an opportunity to enjoy the property as if we were in our own back yard. The accommodations are good and meet the requirements for every-day necessities.

If going back to the area, I know this is the first place I will look. Looking forward to a return trip in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jason for your review. The portion of the beach where the condo is located is restricted and cars are not allowed. Other than bathers walking the shore line the beach is like having your own private beach; I am glad you enjoyed it.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at this condo in July. The condo was clean and spacious, there was plenty of room for 8 of us. I especially like the view of the swimming pool and the ocean from the balcony. The location was great and the beach is beautiful! A great place for a getaway! Richard and Jennie are very helpful in making restaurant suggestions also! Blackbeards and Breakers are great! We look forward to returning next year!
