About the property

3 bdrm, 2 ba Oceanfront Condo

Welcome to paradise found in Moontide B206. This large 3 bedroom unit is perfect for couples or families. Renovated in early 2013, this unit pampers you as your home away from home.

B206 is decorated to surround you in a bright and cheery Florida vibe. Far too many of the rental condo's we have seen are neutral and sterile. Our renters wanted something uplifting, fun and full of life. The minute you walk into this condo the warm colors will help you know it is vacation time. The master bedroom is huge. It has a king size bed and a large flat screen TV. The master bathroom has been completely renovated including a brand new fully tiled shower with bench seat. The middle bedroom has a queen bed and the 3rd bedroom has two twin beds. All bedrooms have TV's. The leather couch in the living room converts to a very comfortable sofa bed allowing you room to increase your party to sleep 8.

The kitchen has also been upgraded for your enjoyment. To the foodies delight, you will find everything you need to make any meal. You can prep your favorite meals as you look out at the panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean.

The 26' long living room is huge and well furnished with comfortable, durable reclining leather. This makes for a great place to lounge. Read a book, watch TV or a movie (we provide you a small library of movies or go to Red Box just a block away) on the brand new 51' Plasma TV.

The balcony has 4 'bar height' chairs and a table to allow you a very comfortable spot to relax, entertain, dine or simply gaze out at the ocean.

While at Moontide B206 you can be in the condo and see the kids to the pool (note: children must have adult supervision at the pool at all times). The unit sits comfortably above the pool for privacy but low enough to enjoy the happenings there.

Keep in mind, in the B building, you get both pool and ocean views with the convienience of being able to send your trash down the chutes at either end of the building. Renters in A must haul their trash with them back to the dumpsters below the B building. Another bonus of being in the B building is that as you enter and exit our condo you get the enjoyment of gazing west and seeing the estuaries of the Indian River and the Intracoastal in the distance. The soft chimes of the Catholic church across the street will provide an occasional musical backdrop. It is a delight.

B206 also has a full size washer and dryer to help ease on the amount of packing you have to do.

When staying at Moontide B206, you will get access to secured underground parking just like all the owners do. There are shopping carts and luggage carriers to make your check-in super easy. You will find that renters at Moontide come back for decades in a row. B206 is simply the best rental condo on the best beach in all of Florida. We know you'll love it as much as we do.

About Rick Swanson

We entered the vacation rental market 'by accident'. We bought my parent's house on Lake Erie, the sight of our 1998 wedding, in 2008. Until that time, the Lake Erie home had been open to family only. To help make our purchase more affordable, we began to rent the Lake Erie house. To our delight, the vacation renters have and continue to love it and care for it. We cannot be there all the time so it delights us to read the wonderful reviews people post about their time there. Hoping to be snowbirds someday when retirement rolls around, we opted to expand to New Smyrna. Having purchased B206 from a woman who lived there for 30+ years, we spent our first two weeks of ownership in what felt like our own version of an extended episode of extreme makeover. Through longs days, careful shopping and tons of TLC, we transformed Moontide B206 into a place we are proud to call our own, and one that we know (okay, hope) our renters will rave about.

Rick Swanson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rick Swanson chose New Smyrna Beach

New Smyrna is the jewel of all Florida beach communities. The laid back, gorgeous beaches, great history, incredible inlet, great restaurants, great art, and super watersports provide entertainment for all. When it comes to Moontide, the choice was easy. Ask any renter or owner you meet on the elevator or around the property. People come back year after year after year because it is THE place to be in New Smyrna Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Moontide B206 is perfect because it blends all the items we know that you are looking for. Ocean view, pool view, ability to sleep up to 8 comfortably, B building convienience, no drive beach. Not all units in Moontide can claim this unique set of amenties we know that you will enjoy. We do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Even prior to us posting this property on VRBO, our on site rental office booked a last minute one week rental. The feedback from the renter (copied straight from their email):

"Your unit has a great view of the ocean and was spacious and comfortable for our family. We would enjoy a stay again in B - 206."

What a wonderful time we had! Absolutely loved the condo - all the comforts of home - beach access was great. I have rented from quite a few owners and I must say, Rick is the best! The staff at Moontide are so very nice......We had a few questions on the TV and they were answered so quickly! The Canaveral Seashore is a beautiful, natural area to explore - the kids saw manatee swimming right up to them! Magical moments. I would definitely recommend this property if you're looking a quiet, clean, comfortable, beautiful place to stay!

Late Review

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! It could not have been better. The owner was nice, easy to contact. The staff were all very pleasant, nice & super helpful. The condo itself- Amazing! Very beautiful, decorated perfectly. It was so comfortable, everybody has their own rooms, very large living room with wonderful balcony & view of the pool & ocean! Everything in the condo was nice & clean. Well taken care of. I wish we lived a little closer & we would stay here every summer, absolutely no doubt about it!!! I have definitely filed this rental in my mind to go back to! I am positive we will be back!

We just got back from a wonderful vacation. This condo was a great reason we had such a great time. The amenities that are available for beach play were numerous. The towels, both beach and bath were oversized and thick, no skimping there. Comfortable beds and furniture too. Let's not forget the beautiful clean beach. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a fantastic stay at the condo. The layout of the condo was exactly what was needed for two families. We really liked the large living room and dining area where we could all be together. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The balcony was a good size and was nicely furnished with tall patio chairs and a table. The pool was nice and we had direct beach access. The owner had chairs, umbrella, toys, and towels in the condo available for us to use. After hour check-in was very easy. Great place to stay!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the owner for providing what we needed for a wonderful vacation week. This condo was perfect for our family. All the photos provided were exact and the condo was plenty big enough and comfortable and clean for all of our needs. It was great watching our kids swim in the pool from the balcony and great being able to walk down to the beach! We loved it and I wanted to take time to thank the owner for sharing this beautiful place!!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family vacation. The layout of the condo was exactly what we needed...3 bedrooms for privacy and a large living room and dining area where we could all be together. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of nice dishes and a variety of cooking pans and utensils. All the rooms were in great order, comfortable, and clean. The balcony is even nicely furnished with patio chairs and table. The enclosed garage was a nice bonus! Very secure property. We also appreciated the direct beach access, and this owner had plenty of beach equipment (chairs, umbrella, cart, towels) in the condo. Super nice to have all of this available for our use. Both the owner and the rental staff were very helpful and responded quickly to email questions ahead of time. Check-in, even after hours, was easy. I can't imagine any place that could have been better for our vacation.

Owner's Response: As always, we are very appreciative of this great review. What was also very nice of this renter is that in a separate email they pointed out a few minor things that needed attention. As an owner that is not there all the time, it is so helpful for renters to that so we can make improvements/repairs right away. If you are taking the time to read this, while I cannot speak for all owners, this is really quite helpful. I suspect that most owners would want to know this because the hope is to keep the rental in as good of shape as possible for all renters. Stuff breaks, it happens. So, double thanks to this renter!
