New Smyrna Beach is the second oldest town in Florida and what many recall as "the old Florida of yesterday". Quaint shops on historic Flagler Ave and friendly folks are what New Smyrna is all about. We are only 15 miles south of Daytona, and 55 miles east of Orlando. You can enjoy everything from Central Florida's amusement parks, Kennedy Space Center, to relaxing on what some consider "the best beach in the world."

Tired of wading through all of these listings? We have secure online booking available 24/7 and accept all major credit cards. Our staff is available now to assist you. Let us help you find the perfect property for your beach vacation.

We visited New Smyrna Beach with our two young children for the first time in 2011. Three years and four trips later we decided to purchase property in this great beach town. After an extensive search we decided that the Ocean Club at Turtle Mound was exactly what we were looking for. It is a quiet, family friendly complex with a view second to none. There is a park across the street where our children enjoy playing and seeing the manatee and dolphins. We are looking forward to many more family memories and the chance to share this wonderful place with others.

Inside was clean and it was close to the beach

  • 2 of 5

We were not able to enjoy the 'ocean view' from our balcony because the railing was busted in about 4 to 5 places and was extremely dangerous since we were on the 3rd floor of the building. I got a response in email on saturday about moving locations, but we were only going to be there for 3 nights and I was not checking email over the weekend. The email also stated that they were aware of the problem before this, so I find it even more disturbing that they would rent out this unit with an unsafe balcony. We have 2 little ones ( 1 yr old and 3 yrs old) that could have gone right through the slats that were broken, so we could not go out there at all and kept the doors closed and locked at all times. We enjoyed how close it was to the beach, but could not enjoy the breeze or scenery at night, which is what we were hoping to do each night. I will be calling the office to talk to them now that we are home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback John. We do apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to use the balcony. We are having the HOA take care of this for future guests due to your experience. We hope that the refund we credited to you for this inconvenience helped ease your stay a bit and we hope that you will reach out to us again and stay with one of our many area New Smyrna Beach Vacation properties. Thank you, The Great Ocean Team

Quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this building two times before and are planning to be here again in 2017. It is a drive from the main hub of activity but that is why we choose this location, we are able to enjoy very little traffic on the roads and the beach.

The beach in front is peaceful and the state park at the end of the road is fun to explore.

Beautiful Ocean View with Great Access

  • 4 of 5

This condo is well situated with a beautiful view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. Beautiful beach areas with lifeguard stand right there in front. The balcony was great to sit on in the early morning to watch the sunrise above the beach or in the evening to watch things wind down. The condo itself was clean, well decorated, and comfortable. My family enjoyed their time there and the condo helped make it a special trip. And Kennedy Space Center is about an hour or so down the road and worth a drive for a break from the beach. The condo also has washer/dryer and well stock kitchen equipment, which were all super convenient to use. The team at Ocean Condos are also super nice and accommodating.

Great condo but some drawbacks

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this unit and it was an awesome condo. It was clean, bright, quiet, and had all the beach extras - towels, chairs, cooler, toys, kite, boogie boards. Plenty of room for our family of five. However, it would have been nice to know that there are 48! stairs to reach the condo. You might be thinking that's not so bad and it wouldn't have been if you only had to go up and down a few times, but imagine bringing luggage, groceries, beach stuff, and kids up and down several times a day for a week. It gets old really fast. Another negative is the location, it is waaaaaaay down the beach past all conveniences like restaurants, stores, etc. Again, if you are looking for quiet and don't mind having to drive everywhere then it won't be a problem. I would rather walk to grab ice cream or stroll the local shops but you have to drive 6+ miles. That makes it annoying because instead of a quick trip to grab a snack you're thinking what else do I need to bring (for 3 kids) so if we see something else we want to do we don't have to run all the way back to grab such and such. The final drawback is the beach quality. Yes, it's beautiful but the sand was the worst of any Florida beach we've visited. There was a thin layer of sand covering crushed shell. Not soft and luxurious like you want. We took a drive to Daytona Beach and the kids were in awe of the soft sand there. Little did we know but discovered on the day before we left that the sand quality at NSB greatly improves if you head back into town (6+ miles again) and hit the driving part of the beach. So, if you don't have a problem driving everywhere, don't mind the stairs, and don't care about the sand then this is the place

for you. I wish I could move the condo to a different location because the condo itself was fantastic. We had no problems with the condo or managing company. Wish I could say we'd be back but the drawbacks mean we'll be going somewhere else next time. Hope this is helpful to others planning a family beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review of our beach condo. We're happy you found the condo so well-stocked, clean and nice. We do advertise that there are no elevators, but understand the difficulty you encountered with shopping and traveling everywhere with 3 kids in tow! Some people enjoy the relative seclusion of Ocean Club at Turtle Mound's location; sorry the location was not the best fit for you and your family. We hope you do return to NSB! - The Great Ocean Condos Team

Ocean is right there; condo clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Great location by the quiet, no-drive part of the beach and a mile from Canaveral National Seashore. View was terrific with the ever-changing ocean always right there. Lots of light in living areas. Can catch the sunset either from the bedrooms or across the street in Bethune Park. Condo was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked with cookware, appliances, cleaning supplies and even spices and condiments. The team at Great Ocean Condos were responsive, helpful, friendly and concerned with great follow through. Special thanks to Jessica. Only drawbacks were neighbors' constantly barking dogs (not much to be done about that), and not being able to keep doors and windows open because of the salt air. Wish I'd known about that in advance.

New Smyrna Beach is an enjoyable town with many great places to explore, and good restaurants. JB's Fish Camp just down the road is fun place to eat with good fish dinners. We rented kayaks there for a pleasant couple of hours on the lagoon. Riverview Grill Sunset menu was a bargain and pleasant to eat outside with...a river view and sunset! Heath's Natural Foods has tasty soups and hot dishes to eat there or take home. Went to see a number of first run movies at the close-by Epic Theater, and also explored the laid back Canal Street and Flagler Street areas. Condo was a great choice for first time in NSB. Thanks for sharing your place!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in New Smyrna Beach! It is a great area with many nice restaurants nearby and beautiful views all around. Thank you for the kind words about Jessica as well. We apologize for the rules keeping the windows closed-- that's just to protect the furniture and amenities from the salt air so others can enjoy the unit as much as you did. We hope you can come back soon! - The Great Ocean Condos Team

About New Smyrna Beach

Located on Florida’s east central coast, New Smyrna Beach is a quiet seaside retreat at the southern mouth of Ponce de Leon Inlet. It is a small, historic city, and yet offers 13.2 miles of beach to enjoy. At only 55 miles northeast of Orlando, it serves as a favorite get-a-way destination for many Central Florida residents and has garnered significant notoriety as a surfing destination, often hosting American Surfing Professionals’ competitions. Surfers can bring their own equipment or rent from the numerous surf shops along the beach. New Smyrna Beach is the second oldest town in Florida and what many call “the old Florida of yesterday.” Quaint shops on historic Flagler Avenue and friendly folks are what New Smyrna Beach is all about. Through the years, the City of New Smyrna Beach has maintained tight controls on growth, resulting in a limited number of low-rise condominiums being constructed. The city has also held strict parameters on beach traffic which, in addition to protecting beach goers, simultaneously protects nesting sea turtles. It is a nesting ground for loggerhead sea turtles, and Florida’s loggerhead population is the largest in the nation.

What to do in New Smyrna Beach?

Enjoy the many activities that come with staying right on one of the finest sandy beaches in Florida. You’ll find water sports, beachcombing, fishing, golf, shopping, and many local dining choices within walking distance. Once you stay here, you’ll want to come back again and again. We recommend that you call today to reserve your space as our condo books up very quickly. And, if you have never been to New Smyrna Beach in the off-season, find out for yourself why the locals feel it’s the best kept secret in town! New Smyrna Beach in the Fall and Winter is a great time to visit due to smaller crowds, beautiful weather, lower prices, and a beach that you’ll have practically all to yourself.

New Smyrna Beach Festivals

The downtown historic district, on Flagler Avenue, is the perfect location for a number of festivals throughout the year. The New Smyrna Beach Food Festival happens every April, offering a tasting of the beach’s best food and drink. The Cinco de Mayo celebration in May is a family fun time with live music and dancing in the streets. In August, the Shrimp and Seafood Festival begins, featuring tons of seafood as well as a display of unique arts and crafts. Jazz lovers come in the droves for the city’s annual Jazz Fest in September, featuring live music on street stages and in local venues around New Smyrna Beach.

New Smyrna Beach Museums and the Arts

The Atlantic Center for the Arts is the backbone of the lively New Smyrna Beach arts scene. The arts center has received great recognition for its eco-friendly design. The complex of buildings houses art exhibitions, performances, and is home to an artist-in-residence program. There are several art galleries in the downtown New Smyrna Beach area, such as Florida Galleria and TaDa Gallery which showcase works of local artists. The city is home to the Black Heritage Museum which has a collection of artifacts that date back to the 1920s.

New Smyrna Beach Parks and Recreation

Not only is there plenty to do on the beach, the New Smyrna Beach area includes many parks which offer camping, fishing, hiking, and other activities. Lake Ashby Park, a 64 acre waterfront park, offers many outdoor activities such as primitive camping, fishing, canoeing, horse trails, sport courts, and a boat ramp. Smyrna Dunes Park is 73 acres of land giving visitors of New Smyrna Beach the opportunity to view wildlife and sand dunes up close and personal. The park features elevated walkways, picnic areas, observation areas, and a pavilion.

Proximity to World Famous Attractions

Visitors of New Smyrna Beach return year after year because of the location, affordability, and wonderful family atmosphere. Disney World Resorts, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are all only a 90 minute drive away. Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Sea World are only 75 minutes away. And the famous Kennedy Space Center is only 45 minutes away.
