About the property

Sleeps up to 8, 3 Bedrooms. 2 Baths plus outdoor shower

This is our home away from home, so we have tried to do everything we can to make it comfortable. There are things that are important to us and make it home. We hope you will appreciate these things as well: a large round dining room table that seats eight, big enough for everyone to eat together; a fully equipped kitchen, not the usual beach fare with cheap pots and pans; comfortable and inviting pillow top mattresses and high thread count sheets on every bed; luxurious bath and beach towels; a comfortable living room with a 60-inch HD plasma TV; a large lanai that also has an outdoor eating area and grill; and all the things you will need for beach fun--surfboards, body boards, chairs, umbrella, ice chest and more.

A unique benefit of this beach home is vast amount of off-street parking for boats, trailers, motorcycles or cars of visiting friends and family. Enjoy full cable TV, and secure broadband and wireless internet. Enjoy the outdoor shower to rinse off the sand after a memory filled day at the beach.

About Scott and Pam Leete

Our family lives in the Orlando area. New Smyrna Beach has always been a favorite vacation spot for us. Now we are delighted to have a home there and to be able to share it with you.

Pam and I have been married 25 years. Our oldest daughter just graduated from the University of Florida, our middle daughter is a sophomore at Florida State University and our son is in the 6th grade.

We understand the importance of time away as a family (and sometimes just as husband and wife)! We hope you will enjoy Our New Smyrna Beach House house as much as we do.

Scott and Pam Leete purchased this house in 2014

Why Scott and Pam Leete chose Smyrna Dunes

New Smyrna Beach is a special place. It has wide beaches with beautiful white sand. It has some of the best surfing in Florida. It has a quaint shopping/dining area on Flagler Avenue. It is the beach of choice for many people from Orlando. So, of all the east coast beaches, New Smyrna is where we knew we really wanted to be.

For us, it is important that once we get to our beach house that we do not have to get in the car again. One of the reasons that we picked this house because it is walking distance to everything that you need. The beach is a short 4 minute walk down the street. The grocery store and small shopping center with several restaurants is just as close. The Flagler Avenue area is exactly one mile away.

Another aspect of this property that we really like is that the living room, dining room and kitchen are all open. It gives you a nice spacious feel even when you have a group of people there.

Lastly, Pam and I hope to eventually retire here to New Smyrna Beach; we just wish we could do it now!

What makes this house unique

Having vacationed in New Smyrna Beach for many years, we have experienced the vacation rental scene. Many places left a lot to be desired. And there were things we wanted to make sure our guests did not have to 'experience.'

We wanted nice comfortable beds that were as easy or better to sleep on than the ones at home. Good sheets, it amazing the difference that they make. We want luxury hotel quality bath towels, not ones that were threadbare. We wanted a kitchen that you could actually use. Appliances that were up to date and functional. Pots and pans that did not feel like they were bought at the dollar store. A table to eat at where the whole family could sit together. Most places we rented only had four chairs. And lots of parking. When we are at the beach, we like for our friends to come over and play as well. That means they need a place to park too.

We never used to be able to ride our bikes at the beach because we never had room to take them. The minivan would be full of beach toys, boogie boards, surfboards, umbrella, towels and more. Now, everything is already there for our (and your enjoyment): Large and soft beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, body boards, surf boards, bikes, rods & reels and tackle for surf fishing (that another think we never had room for). We have a blast with all this stuff and know that you will too.

We have tried to make staying at Our New Smyrna Beach House an exceptional experience. Our only problem is every time we go, we never want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was nearly perfect! Sunny, slight wind and not too hot. We went boogie boarding, surfing, built sandcastles, had family meals and played games.

Our most memorable moment was a late night walk on the beach under a full moon. It was so beautiful.

There are so many great places to ride the bikes from hear. Great location! Wonderful home. Very comfortable. It has everything we need.

Family gathering !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the at the home was great, the accommodations was wonderful, we had everything you could ever need to use at our reach. My grandchild had an amazing time with the games, beach toys,and the fire pit was perfect for s'mores. With having a shower outside made it so easy to take care of all the sand from the beach. The children also enjoyed the sleeping accommodation. I would recommend this home for anyone with children we had a wonderful experience and hope to plan another vacation in the near future.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay for us. So close to the beach and house has everything you need to have a great day at the beach. We did have to go buy TP and paper towels as that was the one thing the house was lacking. No biggie though, Walgreens was litterally yards away. AC did go out the last day and the owner was very helpful in getting an AC company out ASAP.

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 months in this house and it was perfect. It became our home away from home. Had everything we needed, quite street and great neighbors. A short walk to the beach which is beautiful. There are many great places to eat and the grocery store is around the corner. Pam and Scott the owners are always there if there are any concerns. I would rent this home again in a minute. Great place for us to get away from our upstate ny winters. deb

We were so happy with the house. It was in wonderful condition and everything we needed was there. We had a small issue while there and the owners were so nice and helpful. It is a short walk to the beach and the beach is beautiful. The house is also convenient to shopping and dining. We had our Thanksgiving dinner there with family who live in the area. The table was great for our dinner!
