About the property

GreatOceanCondos offers Unit 903 at Inlet at Minorca

At Great Ocean Condos we help families make memories that last a lifetime. Our 2 day minimum stay excludes holidays and peak season dates of January through March and Memorial Day through Labor Day. Nightly rates listed are based on a 7 night stay. Shorter stays are welcomed when we have last minute availability. Just click the "Ask Manager a Question" button below and we would be happy to help! We want to talk to you! During peak season we accept Saturday to Saturday bookings only, but try to accommodate any length stay whenever possible. The Great Ocean Team is ready to book your next beach vacation!

Enjoy spectacular sunrises and long, lazy days on the white sands of New Smyrna Beach at our ninth-floor, oceanfront condo at Inlet at Minorca 903. Spacious and boasting the latest appliances, it has the comforts of home in a great location!

The showplace of the condo -- and the first place you're likely to settle in; it's irresistible! -- is our wide, covered deck directly facing the ocean. You'll welcome the mix of sunshine and shade here, and love the feel of the salty breezes cutting through the balmy Florida air. You have a panoramic view of the grassy landscaping at Inlet at Minorca 903, the private wooden boardwalk over the dunes down to the beach, and of course the sparkling blue surf itself!

The balcony is a great place first thing in the morning, when the sea birds wheel past to fish for their breakfast in the tide; at noon, when the sea is its brightest and you can watch swimmers bobbing in the surf; and in late afternoon, when the colors change and the first cooler notes enter the air. Prepare to see pelicans, terns, and much more. The dunes are also full of wildlife, so bring your binoculars, your Peterson's Guides, and your camera!

But the best thing about Inlet at Minorca 903 is that even when it's time to go indoors, you don't have to leave the view behind. The sliding glass doors looking out to the ocean occupy almost the entire front wall of the open-plan living and dining area, giving you a lovely view even from way back in the kitchen!

Our living room is designed for comfort and relaxation. Sink into the armchair or loll on the long couch. A big flat-screen TV in an entertainment center stands ready to play your favorite movie, should you decide for a quiet night "in" after all your levels on the beach or in the city. The ceiling fan keeps the cool air circulating, and everything is so pleasant and calm after the excitement of the day.

The dining area is adjacent to the living space, so your group can stay together even while some people gravitate to the TV and others break out the Rummikub at the table. This wood-topped table for 4 is lovely for meals, but most often these get eaten out (New Smyrna's restaurants are simply fabulous!) or carried out to the balcony. So convert it into a computer table (you have free wireless Internet here, after all) or game center. Everyone will enjoy a round of Crazy Eights after dinner!

Speaking of dinner, if you do decide to prepare a few homemade meals, you'll be rewarded by the newly remodeled, thoroughly pleasant kitchen at Inlet at Minorca 903. We have stocked the cupboards with cookware, utensils, and dishes galore, so you turn that freshly-caught fish into a feast! The stainless-steel side-by-side offers water in the door, which keeps the kids from opening it 20 times an hour, and the granite counter is nicely cool to the touch as you chop veggies or mix a blender full of frosty drinks for the gang. So nice to have all the time-savers you rely on here, from coffee maker and toaster oven to microwave!

Another jewel in the crown of this condo is the master suite. Boasting a king-sized bed, flat-screen TV, and huge sliding glass door with ocean views that will lead you out to the balcony, it's a sanctuary of quiet and repose after a day with the whole group. And the en-suite bath contains a walk-in shower and granite-topped vanity!

The second bedroom is spacious and welcoming, with 2 twin beds, a flat-screen TV, and plenty of room for toys and projects. This room is convenient to the 2nd bathroom, which contains both a granite counter top and tub. Remember, all linens and towels are provided for you here -- along with a full sized washer and dryer right in the condo for your use!

The livin' is always easy at Inlet at Minorca 903, a family friendly resort with a big swimming pool, tennis courts, & spa. Make friends, keep the whole group entertained, and have the time of your life.

Further from Inlet at Minorca 903 are the many attractions of New Smyrna. 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.'

Right on the beach, with comfortable accommodation and stunning views, a pool just outside and situated within easy travel of all that Central Florida has to offer, Inlet at Minorca 903 provides a perfect vacation home to create memories

The building sits in a gated, secured complex with tons of amenities......swimming pools with restroom facilities, hot tub, party gazebos, tennis courts, club houses, exercise room, pool table, etc., all in a meticulously landscaped setting. A short 3 minute walk is all it takes from the pool to the beach! Come enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the private balcony or just walk a few steps over the walkway to the brilliant sand beach to enjoy all of your favorite water sports. Minorca is located at the north end of New Smyrna Beach, with access to both the intercoatal waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Minorca is an upscale community that offers a relaxed lifestyle. Amenities include: 4 Har-tru tennis courts, fitness center, hot tubs, clubhouse with big screen TV, pool table, catering facilities, swimming pools and Ocean pavilions. The north border of Minorca runs along the 220 acre Smyrna dunes park with deck walkways and nature observation towers.

Tennis courts, exercise facility, clubhouse, security gates, swimming pools and hot tub, 2.5 mile elevated walkway through dunes nature preserve, directly on the best surf spot on the East coast of Florida.

And if that's not enough, all of the Orlando attractions are roughly 65 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have enjoyed our stay in #903. In addition to #903 being terrific, we thoroughly enjoyed the Minorca complex & city of New Smyrna Beach. My husband & I think it's was the nicest condo we've ever rented in FL. Also, it has been a pleasure to rent from Great Ocean Condos, a very professionally run yet friendly property management/rental company. Everything was so nicely decorated and the kitchen so well equipped and it's obvious the Steeles put a lot of time, effort and expense into remodeling and have very good taste in decorating. We were wondering if they have any rental condos in other FL. cities. Although we may not be able to travel next year because of a remodeling project for our rental condo in DE, we hope to travel to FL for following years. We stay in different cities for January and February.

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.

Direct Oceanfront Condo with Vivid Sea View...

  • 5 of 5

This could be a great family vacation spot for all ages!!! Beach, surfing, boogie boarding, tennis, swimming pools, hot tubs, billiards, fitness room, fishing in the inlet, walking/jogging on the 13-mile long beach, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, bike and golf cart rentals, nearby S hopping, great inexpensive restaurants, Publix is close by, etc.!!! There are SO many fun things to do in New Smyrna Beach!! This beach has now become our favorite beach vacation spot of all others, including Costa Rica and Waikiki. Our condo was exceptionally clean and renovated with high-end furnishings and decorations. And to top it off, there was a welcome gift and nice personalized card from the condo owner sitting on the island bar when we arrived. We plan on returning with our family and friends for many years to come...hopefully, back to the same unit each time.

Relaxing Vacation with a Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in NSB for 30 plus years. We always stayed on the South end of the beach, but no more! WOW! The view was amazing, and the environment at the Minorca is friendly and relaxing. Our family with three teens loved it! The welcome basket was so nice, and the location is so convenient to everything...downtown NSB, grocery, great restaurants. The pools were beautifully cared for and nice and warm for cool December nights. Looking out in the evenings at the lighthouse view was peaceful. Amenities were great. Lots of games, cards, beach stuff, chairs, and towels. Top notch vacation - wished we stayed for two weeks!

Awesome quiet relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic condo! One of our favorite aspects is that the master bedroom has ceiling to floor windows with sliding glass door opening to a long balcony that extends past living room, and that you can lie on the awesome high bed with a great view of the ocean, birds, and surfers! Beautifully decorated, clean, private. The remote control for living room blinds must have a certain sequence since we couldn't get them to close, and for the LR TV controls were a challenge though instructions were provided. All amenities as listed. A very upscale community, very quiet, 24 hr security. The magnetic fob allows access to the clubhouse with a nice pool table, and the fitness center. We'll definitely try to reserve this unit again! Great Ocean Condos is easily accessible, an extremely cordial and professional group.

Perfect place for us

  • 4 of 5

This was the right place at the right time for us. Our son had a skydiving accident and we couldn't travel for a few weeks. We brought him here at the last minute to recoup until we could travel with him. The views of the ocean and beach were the perfect medicine. The unit is very nice and furnished beautifully. The balcony was wonderful and spacious. The owners were wonderful and very responsive. They left a nice welcome basket for us which was a thoughtful touch. Our issues with the unit were minor, but were as follows; The single beds in the second bedroom were uncomfortable and although good for kids, not perfect for adults. Since we were homebound with our son we had to cook all our meals in the condo. We love to cook and would have appreciated a better selection of cooking utensils. We had to be creative. There was not an electric grill on the balcony and the community grills are not convenient. Another unit that we stayed at in the complex did have a grill. Last, there were silverfish in the unit. The owner seemed very concern about it and I am sure the issue was taken care of. Overall the unit, the complex and the amenities the complex offered were excellent. We would stay there again and would hopefully be able to explore New Smyrna next time
