'GREAT FOR FAMILIES'
My Husband and I bought this house 12 years ago and just love this location. Going to this house is like vacationing every weekend. I love the area, the people, the restaurants and the quiet small town. Even though we are 15 minutes from Daytona Beach this beach is not full of the crowds and the tourists. We just love it here and I know you will too. For all of you race fans this house is just perfect and close to the action in Daytona but not on top of it.
Cathy Laurer purchased this house in 2001
I recently stayed at this house with 6 other friends and we loved our stay. The house is very spacious allowing us to spread out without being in each other's space. The house was clean, and the kitchen was fully equipped. It was very peaceful, with not a whole lot of people around.
The owner was wonderful and accommodating, I would definitely recommend this place!
I recently spent a week in this beach house with 8 members of my family ranging in age from 22 to 95. This is a large house and there was plenty of space for all of us to spread out and not be in each other's way all the time. The view of the ocean from the house is spectacular. The beach is just a short walk away and you feel as if you are on your own private beach because there are no cars nor crowds. The kitchen had everything we needed. Cathy was very nice to deal with and we definitely would like to return one day.
My father rented this house for our family. We had a great time and enjoyed it's super close location to the beach. You walk across the street and you're there. The house is lovely, but if you look closely you'll see the grubbiness. Faint dirty handprints on the wall, threadbare sheets, dish towels, bath towels and stains on the pillows. This really bothered us - a blanket thrown over the couch that we continually tripped over. I knew the couch was old by the way you'd sink into it when sitting on it. It's obviously pretty gross if there's a need to put a blanket over it. Maybe buy a new couch? Slipcover?
After we left we received a very unprofessional and condescending email from Cathy that told us "I've never seen such a mess in my life." She then proceeded to list all these messes that we made. This email stunned us and was insulting to our family. We are not messy people and did clean it before leaving as best we could. I washed the towels and my mom did the sheets. Apparently we didn't do it in the specific way she wanted.
She pointed out that there was a chocolate stain on the rug; I'll take the blame for that. I forgot to clean it when leaving. Cathy, in her email, suggested it would be "smarter" to eat chocolate outside. Not really feasible in the Florida heat of July and mosquitoes all over the place. Also I was wary of the deck: the fence was shaky. Dangerous if someone leans on it. She also said that housekeeping was "amazed" by the mess when they came in to clean after we left. I'm sure they've seen worse than chocolate on a rug and another mess we apparently made, sticky counters. We cleaned those but I guess not to her satisfaction. My son and I slept downstairs and never brought any food or anything down there that would have, according to Cathy, "ground" itself into the carpet. And believe me, it was dirty down there already. And mention was made that furniture was moved and not put back and she'd be charged for that. The plastic patio chairs? Housekeeping charges to put those back?
So yes, our deposit was gone. If you rent this place, be ready to lose your deposit if the rules are not followed to the T, and not see any receipts for where your deposit went to. Read her rules closely, or else you'll hear about it. I'm sure Cathy will write her version of the story in response to this. And we'll be wrong in every way. However, at the end of the day, would you want to rent from someone this rude and unprofessional?
When we arrived to the house, it was exactly as described online. Beautiful beach view, with a walkway across the street from a one way street that has very little traffic. Plenty of room for the family to spread out and enjoy their private space. The beach was amazing, not crowded at all. Wonderful relaxing spot to spend a few days in paradise
Our girls weekend at New Smyrna Beach was just a wonderful experience due to this wonderful rental. We each has our own space and enjoyed the wonderful sunrises, sunsets and even a double rainbow from the balconies. A very clean and comfortable home away from home for the weekend.
I led a yoga retreat at this house for several women and it was a big hit. The home was spacious and comfortable, and everyone loved the dumb waiter from the garage up to the kitchen. It made packing in and out so much easier. The house is in a great location. There is a small access road that separates the home from its private beach access. We actually preferred this to being directly on the beach because it offered more privacy, and the road received very little traffic. This end of the beach was quiet and free of beach driving. I would definitely rent this home again.
