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 Florida Central Atlantic Coast

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.

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!

lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Richard and Jennie for a wonderful vacation. We enjoyed staying at your condo very much. Our trip was in June 2016. We had 3 generations of family (4 adults/2 children) and every one of us enjoyed our stay. Your condo was a great home away from home. We loved the well-stocked kitchen, the full-sized washer/dryer, the pool toys, comfy beds, the pool and especially the easy access to the beach. It was great to spend the early morning on the deck watching the ocean and listening to the waves. We have such great memories of our trip. Thank you for everything.

Perfect Safe Vacation get away

  • 5 of 5

With the Pool and safe NO DRIVE Beach only steps away it was perfect for my family. Full size kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, nice living area and washer and was truly wonderful! Seaward is a small complex making getting to the pool and beach with children great. We found the condo very clean and easy to get to from the parking lot and the beach/pool area. Just do not plan on sleeping on the hide-bed. We did bring a blow-up-bed so it worked out just fine. With 6 adults and 2 children we all had a wonderful time. We were able to extent our stay which made everything even better! Thank you Richard and Jennie! Richard's condo is a very comfortable place to stay and Jennie was joy to work with. And YES we are making plans to go back. THANK YOU!

Seaward was a delight!

  • 5 of 5

We had family and friends, totaling 6, for Memorial Day Weekend. Seward is a perfect location in New Smyrna, if you're looking for a non-driving section of the beach. The condo was in terrific order - very clean with great bedroom layouts for sleeping all guests. The full size washer and dryer is an exceptional and, often unusual, feature in condo rentals in the area. This condo is exactly how it is described. Greatly appreciated all amenities provided by the owner.

Money Well Spent

  • 4 of 5

I spent 4 days at this condo at the Seaward. The room is on the second floor with a clear view of both the pool and the beach. Richard was pleasant to deal with and very personable on the phone. I was celebrating my husband's 60th birthday and we had 4 adults and 3 small children in the condo for the weekend, it was perfect! We had a cookout with about 20 people and everyone enjoyed relaxing by the pool and playing on the beach. Jennie, Richard's property manager, is an angel! She was extremely pleasant and accommodating. If I had only dealt with Jennie and Richard this would be a "5 Star" review, however the Seaward manager leaves a bit to be desired, she was rather unpleasant and accusatory. She gave us the impression she was "bothered" by everything, from a ball (not ours) left by the volleyball net to shells left on the ground (again we were not responsible for this). If she were not a factor I would say "excellent". However, she would not deter me from staying there again.
