Point East 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?

Wonderful condo and views

  • 5 of 5

Our family were booked in for a four night stay at the lovely beach retreat - but unfortunately due to Hurricabe Matthew - were only able to stay one night before we evacuated. Of course being from Australia - this was a stressful time forbid - and Peggy was of great help and readily available to answer questions and help us!

The condo is just amazing. Great facilities - huge space in the bedrooms, wonderful views and outlook. We were very sorry that we could only stay one night - and we sincerely hope the apartment is ok in this huge storm!

Thank you Peggy!

Property was very clean and well maintained. Construction was going on but it didn't affect us.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was well cared for, kitchen was well stocked with utensils,dishes etc.I would suggest a queen bed in the second bedroom instead of single beds. Front bedroom was a little warm and rather noisy because of the street noise. We moved to the sleeper sofa which was very comfortable but you were in the way of the other couple that way. A bigger TV and a different stand would be nice in the den. It was awkward trying to watch TV with the poles on the stand blocking your view. It would be nice to have 2 more chairs on the patio for 2 couples to sit. This condo was nice for a couple with kids but not big enough for 2 couples. The staff was nice but the condo office was poorly marked.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Dotties Beach Retreat. Very well stocked. Just bring your clothes and swimsuit and you are all set. Other than a couple of little hiccups we enjoyed very much. Will be back.

This was THE BEST! vacation I have ever experienced and I would like to thank Peggy Malone for her wonderful hospitality. This is the perfect location for a vacation. The place was very clean and was nice and quiet. It seemed as if we had our own private beach. They thought of everything you can possibly need, everything we packed was already supplied at the resort from beach towels,umbrellas, and toys to paper plates. I would Definitely return next year.

This condo is in great location and a great find. We were most surprised how clean and well kept it was. It did not feel as rental but more like home. I love to cook and kitchen had everything I needed. We had a great time and will definitely stay again!
