New Smyrna Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

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?

Dotties Retreat is paradise

  • 5 of 5

Dottie's Retreat was an amazing place. This was our 14th year at NSB and our first at Dottie's at Pointe East condos. The condo was immaculate, everything you would need was provided. All you need is your swim trunks and you are going to have the time of your life. The courtyard was beautiful the pavilion was so spacious and always a gathering place for all the people vacationing there. The grill area was very well maintain and the view from the balcony was breath taking. the condo was very large and plenty of room for myself and my family. Very well maintained and clean and neat and decorated to enhance the feel of being at the beach. I can't wait to get back to Dottie's as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us.

This condo was in the perfect location. It was spotless and adorable. The kitchen is amazing with everything I need to make breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The cleanliness of the condo blew me away. The grounds and pool area are wonderful and amazingly taken care of. Huge pool and great area for lunch or sitting in the shade. I will definitely be back. A perfect vacation.

Cute and Cozy

Dottie's Beach Retreat was more than what we expected. Love the beach decor all over the condo. It has everything you need to spend a few days or an entire weeks. Extremely clean as I am a clean freak myself. Peggy was great to work with, she accommodated us for memorial weekend, will definetly return. 😊

Dottie's Beach Retreat #213 Point East

  • 5 of 5

The Ocean View ! ☀️ It was our first time to New Smyrna Beach. This was the perfect place to stay! Very clean and comfortable. This unit is very spacious and had everything we could want. One trip to the nearby grocery store, and we were were set for breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Lots of excellent restaurant choices close by also. The beach right in front of Point East is a "no drive" area which is great! But when we did want to take our Dad for a drive on the beach, it was right next door- very nice and close. We took in a River Boat ride on the Indian River in town- saw lots of Dolphins!, a Airboat ride- saw lots of Alligators! (several rides offered in neighboring towns), shopped at Flagler Ave shops, and even went to Daytona Beach for the Flea Market. All this, and still spent lots of quality time at the pool and on the Ocean beach! The Beach is Pristine! Beautiful white sand, with no seaweed or jellyfish. We all had a wonderful time! Hope to come back!
