About Melissa Hazlewood

We are two professional women who have made this purchase to enjoy the beautiful Florida beaches that are so close to us. As we cannot always spend every weekend in our vacation paradise, we wanted to share it with others. We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do. We welcome you as our guests!

Melissa Hazlewood purchased this condo in 2013

Why Melissa Hazlewood chose New Smyrna Beach

Voted one of the best beaches in Florida! And because we have one of the few places in New Smyrna Beach where you can watch the sunsets and sunrises directly from the condo!

What makes this condo unique

While at our TurtleVista Condo, we enjoy watching sunrises, sunsets, relaxing, eating (mostly locally owned and operated restaurants) and just being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We also enjoy that you can surf, fish, golf, boat, bike or most any other outdoor activity that you desire!

Lovely ocean stay! 🌞

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fully stocked with all your basic needs, and the ocean views were magnificent. The owners were very quick to respond if you had any questions. We'd love to return!

Home away from home - with a view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was phenomenal! Just bring your clothes - everything you need for a wonderful vacation is provided by the owners, who were a dream to work with. This spacious unit is just as described. It is updated, clean, and comfortable. The views from the condo were magnificent! I could sit and look at the water for hours. The beach was nearly deserted every day - no fighting for a prime spot each morning. It was so nice having a lifeguard station very close to the condo - you could just glance out and see what the flag warning was for the day. The pool was great too - cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough to enjoy a swim. We have been vacationing in New Smyrna Beach for nearly 35 years and this was one of the nicest condos we have ever stayed in. We hope to be back next year!

Peace and serenity within reach of everything you could ever want!

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe an online search led us to quite possibly the most perfect place along the NSB coastline. The more we learned about where we were located, the more we realized we had really come across the BEST place ever -- for us. We wanted to explore the New Smyrna Beach area while decompressing from a few days at Universal in Orlando. We wanted quiet, relaxation, and nature -- with some small-town beachy options for entertainment. TurtleVista condo was gorgeous and had everything we needed. The view -- I can't even describe the view adequately. It's a corner unit condo right on the water, so you just see ocean everywhere. It is east-facing, and I am a wimp about heat, so the mornings got warm pretty quickly. I pulled a bar stool up to the sliding glass door and had my coffee with the sea - in AC comfort. Many mornings, we saw only a handful of people, out for their morning walks. Dolphins came by almost every morning. We watched pelicans make their splash landings. It was just so perfect. One day we walked a mile down to the National Seashore. There are many restaurants nearby if you don't want to use the FABULOUS kitchen in the condo. Flagler Beach has cute shops and restaurants -- that's quite close. The Ponce Inlet lighthouse is a short drive away and has an amazing collection of Fresnel lenses and several outbuildings associated with the lives of lighthouse keepers -- def. worth the small price for admission -- esp. for history / lighthouse lovers. We drove an hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Incredible. High charge for admission, but the entire facility and staff are not federally funded. We took a dolphin-watching cruise with the Marine Discovery Center. Having ocean on one side and estuary on the other is special. We loved that flashlights and outdoor lights are banned to protect the sea turtles -- and people respect the laws. The condo itself is really nice. There were so many things that we DIDN'T need to bring with us -- it was already there! Beach chairs and toys, sunscreen, bug spray, everything you could ever want to use in the kitchen, games, movies. Our weather was perfect, but had it rained, we'd have enjoyed ourselves there anyway. Our teenagers loved that they had their own bedrooms for chill time during the heat of the afternoon. Our favorite thing was taking chairs down to the water's edge in the evening. We just plopped down and let the surf wash over us. I want to go back!

Great Location, Beautiful Beach and Unit

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay. The view was amazing and the amenities are perfect. Large Unit with ample space for your family. The customer service from the owners was great and the "check-in" instructions you receive before hand are very helpful. Would definitely would stay here again and highly recommend to others!!

Wonderful Stay :)

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful!!! It is very spacious, updated, comfortable beds and best of all, the view! We enjoyed morning coffees on the deck and even saw dolphins one morning. We also saw dolphins and manatees across the road by the park, which is also a great new park for kids. Went kayaking from JB's, a great place for food and live music just across the street. The beach was by far our favorite. It was so beautiful. Very quiet, which was perfect for us, we had two kids (1 and 4) and they loved being able to run around, pick shells, boggy board (provided in condo), build sand castles (also sand toys in condo) and my husband enjoyed surfing everyday. The condo is also close to Disney World (a little over an hour drive), we went there one day. Overall i would recommend this condo to anyone and we hope to return again soon.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I was hesitant to give Turtle Vista a 5 Star rating, but only because I was looking for the 6th Star for phenomenal! We live a short 1.5 hours away from New Smyrna Beach, so we have stayed in various condos many times over the years. This is by far one of the best at the beach! You can tell the owners have taken special care to ensure that their renters are comfortable and that they have everything that they would need while on vacation. The condo was nicely decorated, very clean, and plentifully supplied from the kitchen necessities to the beach paraphernalia. I don't know where Melissa and Victoria got the bed sheets and bath towels, but I want some in our house - so luxurious!

The location of the condo was great. We usually stay closer to town, but wanted to get away from the cluster of condos. Chadham by the Sea is the last condo on the south end of the beach - located across from JB Fishcamp. Several times throughout the week, we walked across the street and grabbed lunch. Other times, we'd just walk right up the stairs to the condo and make a sandwich. Literally, less than 150 steps from the ocean to the front door. In the evenings, we would relax on the patio and watch the dolphins and pelicans playing in the waves, and just take in the fabulous view. The best part about the view was that it was the same from inside the condo with floor to ceiling windows in the entire family space. The beach was wonderful - soft sand, expansive when the tide was out, and not crowded at all. Our 4 and 8 year olds had plenty of space to run, surf the waves, and build sandcastles.Just perfect!

The only advise I would give to someone who is going to rent Turtle Vista would be to stop at the grocery store on the way in and get everything you need - because once you get there, you will not want to leave!

As I said before, we have stayed many places in NSB, but I think we have now found "the place to be!"

Thank you Melissa and Victoria for allowing us to enjoy your home away from home. We will most certainly be back!!!
