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.

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

Pleasant stay?

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at Inlet @ Minorca. The complex is lovely and upscale, but not stuffy. The unit itself is spacious, comfortable, and has the best view in the area. We were welcomed with a lovely goody basketand welcome card from the owners, who also left a light on for us since we would be arriving after dark.

The only thing I would change about the unit is the bed and bath linens. They should be of a better quality for the unit. The bed pillows are also very lacking.

The reservation and check in process was seamless. Would have loved and extra hour to check out in the morning though. 10 is a little early for us.

Our unit wasn't pet friendly, but there is a nearby dog beach. The dunes park is great for a nature walk. Plenty of local restaurants to try. Yellow Dog Eats, Gnarly's Surf bar and grill, Norwood's, Third Wave Cafe all very good!

The beach itself is one of the best in the area.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would be very likely to return on a future trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write us a review, Tracey. I will inform the owners that they should consider purchasing a higher quality bed and bath linens for their condo. Also, when you come back and visit us, we are more than happy to extend your check out if you need some extra time in the morning, just give us a call and we would love to help! - The Great Ocean Team

Fun at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at The Inlet last year and loved it so much that we rented a 2 bedroom this time. The unit was gorgeous and spacious enough for us to entertain family and friends all week long. We definitely loved the view from the master bedroom and the balcony was big and inviting.

We will definitely be staying again in the future. The only challenging aspect of the whole week was trying to figure out how to work the blinds in the living room. We would think we had it figured out and but the next time it didn't work. It was a laugh for everyone all week :) You may want to include directions for them along with the ones for the TV and cable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week. It is a relaxing and peaceful location and if you want action, Flagler Avenue is just a short ride away.

Owner's Response: Hello Cindi, Thanks for your response. It's wonderful to hear you had such a fun time at the beach. We'll look into those blinds for you- if they were that tricky, maybe we do need to include instructions in the check-in documents! Thanks again. We look forward to your next visit. - The Great Ocean 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.
