Bethune Volusia Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Bring your family and/or friends to this unique direct oceanfront home on the non-driving portion of New Smyrna Beach. With six bedrooms and four full baths on three different floors there is plenty of room for several families to stay together but still have their privacy in this 4,800 square foot home. This house is big enough to accommodate a wedding party or a family reunion.

The first floor offers a two-car garage and a complete two-bedroom apartment. The apartment contains a full kitchen, bath and laundry room. One bedroom has a king bed, the other two twins and the couch in the den also reclines.

Gather everyone on the second floor in the huge great room with a large open kitchen and enjoy spectacular views of the ocean and beach. The great room has a large dining room table and chairs, a game table and chairs and a sectional with three recliners all around a gas fireplace. Additionally there is a full bath, bedroom with a queen bed and an office where a blow up mattress can sleep two if needed.

Finally, on the third floor is a 1000 square foot master suite. Relax and enjoy more amazing views from the king bed or the recliners by the fireplace and plasma television. Work a puzzle or play cards at the game table by the mini-bar with sink and refrigerator. The master bath has a jacuzzi tub and separate shower with two shower heads. There are also two other bedrooms, a full bath and laundry room on the third floor. One bedroom has a king bed and the other a double bed.

Both the second and third floors have balconies with sliding glass doors that overlook the beach and ocean. Access to the beach is over your own private dune walkover only steps away. The beach is so close you can talk to someone on the balcony from your chair on the beach. The garage is stocked with beach towels, beach chairs, a gas grill and lots of beach toys. Grill out on the large driveway in front or the patio in the back. Granite counter tops throughout kitchen and bathrooms. The driveway and garage can accommodate nine cars for parking.

The home is located on the non-driving portion of the beach. Within walking distance there is an inter-coastal marina and fishcamp, restaurant, bait shop, snack bar and public tennis, volleyball and basketball courts.

We will consider small dogs on a case by case basis. They must be mature, housebroken pets and we will require a picture be sent in and the picture compared to the pet upon arrival. Additional deposit is required to make sure that any additional cleaning can be done that may be required so our guests that do not have pets will not have to enjoy your pet after you leave. Additional cleaning may or may not include carpet, upholstery and/or comforter cleaning.

About David Godiksen

Our family currently lives near Orlando. We use this house between guests. It is about 1 hour drive. Originally from the Northeast we love Florida will continue to have great times at this home.

David Godiksen purchased this house in 2012

Why David Godiksen chose New Smyrna Beach

New Smyrna Beach is a favorite for people in Central Florida. We have vacationed here for years. We have looked for a property for the past two years and when we found this house we knew we had found the right place. It is a new home, wonderfully set up and can fit a large group.

What makes this house unique

Definitely one of the nicest homes in the area. It is spacious, comfortable and well configured. Common areas are beautiful and large enough for your entire group to be together but the layout allows for privacy as needed too.

Our new home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has enjoyed NSB for years. We absolutely love the area. The beach is nice and family friendly and close enough to Orlando that you can enjoy the parks and enjoy the beach in one week! We have stayed in condos for years but with our family growing and children adults now we decided it was time to try a house. We needed one that would accommodate 3 couples, my father, our son and his girlfriend. This home did not disappoint. The main floor had two bedrooms and a full bath. My father and son had these two bedrooms. The third floor is where the beautiful master suite was plus two other bedrooms and a full bath in addition to the master suite bath. On the ground floor there was another mini apartment which worked perfect for our daughter and son-in-law and our son's girlfriend. This area had 2 bedrooms one with a king and the other with two twins. There was a small kitchen and den area as well as a full bath and laundry. The third floor also housed a small laundry as well. The views are amazing and when the owner says you really have everything available you do! There were many chairs to take to the beach as well as toys for the kids. The grill worked well too. We brought 6 kayaks and had room for them in the garage so we didn't have to worry about driving around with them.

The kitchen was well equipped also. The showers were also amazing! Nice after a long day on the beach or after a morning run! I think the only thing that was concerning to me were the steps going up to the main floor. They were a little steep but my father was able to negotiate them with little difficulty. The thing we like most about the Bethune Beach area is its quite but you are within a mile of Canaveral Park where we enjoy kayaking, fishing and exploring.

This home offers room for our family so we can all be together as well as the privacy we need as well. Our plan is to return for years to come!

This was our family vacation, we had our entire family, kids and grandkids. The house is beautiful, lots of open space for everyone. Just a few steps out the front door to the beach. It was truly the perfect vacation and will definitely rent again from this owner.

2015 Family Beach Bash

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house from July 25, 2015 to August 1, 2015. The house is everything that everyone says it is. Very clean, well kept, spacious and the location is the best. Right on the beach or just a short walk to the inter coastal . We had 5 family's and 5 generations with plenty of room for everyone. We had a small problem with the frig. and the owner had someone out to fix it right away. Would recommend this house to anyone with a large group. Just a great place to have a vacation.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful! The pictures do not do it justice. It was perfect with plenty of space for the whole family to gather and alternately plenty of space for privacy. Our family of twelve included three generations and everyone was comfortable. We definitely plan to be repeat renters and highly recommend this house to other renters.

New Smyrna Beach Home and it's wonderful owners came to our rescue!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us have been traveling down from freezing cold Ohio in March, to Daytona Beach Bike week every year for the past 7 years. We usually rent the same house every year, just north of Daytona. Do to some more than unfortunate circumstances out of our control, we lost our reservation to our usual place just days before our arrival. That's when this beautiful New Smyrna Beach Home and it's wonderful owners came to our rescue! I contacted the owner just days before our arrival. After explaining our situation, they went more than out of their way to accommodate us! Upon our arrival we were even more impressed and pleased with how wonderful, spacious, and clean the house was. The space is vast, and the views are amazing! Can't say enough good things about this place! Looks like we may have found a new sanctuary for our annual bike trip. Thanks again for your hospitality and helping us out of a jam. You went over and beyond what was expected and got us in your Amazing Oceanfront Home!

Beautiful home with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many homes in New Smyrna Beach and this one is definitely our favorite! The home is so beautiful, very spacious, but very comfortable at the same time. It has all you need to enjoy a great vacation. It was so perfect for our group. The multiple larger beds allowed for couples to stay together and not have to sleep in separate beds:) The location is wonderful! So close to the beach in just steps you were in the sand, and the views are gorgeous! The owner is wonderful to work with and was available to answer all questions. We all enjoyed our time there so much and definitely plan on returning! Would recommend this property to anyone!!
