About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath W Queen Sleeper Sofa And Gorgeous Ocean Views

Discover why many of our guests are repeat renters to this second floor beach-themed unit at Point East Ocean Front Condos, 3801 South Atlantic Ave. We are located on the preferred 'no drive' zone of the beach for family fun and safety and right next door to the newly restored public park with covered picnic areas with charcoal grills, racquetball, basketball & handball courts and a playground for kids. There is a lifeguard on duty at the park.

Point East has a covered pavilion with tables/chairs for private gatherings (parties, cards, wedding receptions even!) based on availability. Just check with the on site manager's office. There is also an olympic sized seasonally heated pool, separate kiddy pool, shuffle board, and a large gas grill for guests' use upon request. The oceanfront pool has plenty of lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas.

We are less than an hour away from Orlando and Disney theme parks. New Smyrna Beach is Disneyworld's designated beach for families and has been voted 'top small city for the Arts' and 'best beach in Florida' several times! It's a perfect beach town with a large selection of excellent restaurants and quaint shops. Most travelers like our beautiful island town because it's not as congested or commercialized as Daytona Beach.

Dottie's Beach Retreat offers a Master bedroom with king bed (view of pool/ocean) and private door to the balcony, flat screen TV and private bath (tub/shower). The guest room has 2 twins and view of sunset. The guest bath also has a tub/shower combo.

This spacious cheery island-decorated unit has a remodeled kitchen (where you can cook while enjoying ocean views) with all the appliances and utensils you need. However, don't miss the opportunity to participate in a culinary tour of the fabulous restaurants in New Smyrna. The open living/dining room area seats 6+ for eating plus breakfast bar and relaxing while enjoying the flat screen TV, DVD/MP3 player free WiFi and stereo system. The sliding glass doors open onto the balcony, where beautiful sunrises can be enjoyed over the ocean while sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Point East offers commercial washers/dryers on each floor of this 3-story condo complex.

About Peggy Malone

This unit has been in our family for many years and consequently it has become another 'member' of the family. We are close enough to visit several times a year to maintain the unit and enjoy the amenities that New Smyrna Beach, as well as Point East Condominium has to offer.

Why Peggy Malone chose New Smyrna Beach

Our family fell in love with the 'small town' atmosphere of New Smyrna Beach after vacationing for years in the more populated Daytona Beach, 30 miles north. Although New Smyrna Beach has been 'discovered' over the years, it has retained it's quaint charm as a friendly community where artists sell their wares and kids play safely throughout the community. We enjoy taking the pontoon boat throughout the canals watching the dolphin and manatees play among the mangroves.

What makes this condo unique

You will love seeing the sun rise and set from this second-floor unit. The view from the balcony includes a look over the pool (where you can supervise the kids!) as well as beautiful views of the Atlantic ocean. The beach is wide with beautiful sand, perfect for long walks or bike rides.

Where else can you enjoy quiet solitude reading a book (from the stocked bookshelves) overlooking the ocean listening to the waves break one day and the next take the family to Disney for the day...or take a fishing charter...or watch the Manatees at C.J.'s Fish Camp...or play golf at one of the public anyone?

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful Stay October 2016

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dottie's in October. It was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for cooking. It was a wonderful set up for us and our boys. The complex is beautiful and well maintained. We are definitely looking forward to being able to stay again.

Dotties beach retreat was great!

  • 4 of 5

One word-spotless! As I'm a clean freak that's very important. A lot of noise from the renovation but otherwise it was a relaxing vacation. We would definitely stay again. We have always loved New Smyrna beach.
