After growing up in South Florida and graduating from Florida State University, I currently reside with my family in Central Florida. I have 5 children and one grandson, Oskar Gray! In 2006 I was able to realize my dream of owning a condo on New Smyrna Beach. Though I had no experience in the “rental world,” I was very business minded. Applying my past work experiences, years of travel, and a high standard of excellence to managing my own vacation rental property, it wasn’t long before I began to see a 100% increase in  my condo’s annual rental income. I soon realized that I was better equipped to manage my property than the onsite rental office. More importantly, through my own travel experiences, I understood the way that guests want to be treated. I understood how important it was to provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere that would draw families back to my property year after year. Now, after 10 years, here I am today with GreatOceanCondos.com managing almost 275 properties in the New Smyrna Beach and Greater Daytona Area- the largest vacation rental management company in our area.

Enjoyed most of it

  • 4 of 5

The condo was marvelous inside. The master bedroom was great, but we could not use the ceiling fan, despite several calls about it. The glass panels showing the porch gives you the impression they are sliding doors, because the blinds slid, but behind it was just glass. We had no way of turning the ceiling light off, other than reach for the short chain. Loved having the double windows over the beach. There were no blankets in either bedroom. We had to use towels. Kitchen was nice, and was well equipped. Furniture was comfortable. The other bedroom was so tiny, the owner would do better in reducing the available persons the condo can handle, and get those bunkbeds out of there. Better a good review, and more renters instead of trying to pack more people in there, than the condo can handle and get bad reviews. The lighting in the smaller bedroom was not at all adequate, making it dark, and bunk beds? That whole room should be addressed. Loved the porch. Stayed out there most of my time at the condo. The completely unacceptable problem is the extreme difficulty handicapped people have in accessing the beach, and when you are on a walker and the elevators will not work and you are staying in condo 803, what do you want us to do, fly, hover? The repairmen did not show up until in the middle of the night, disturbing everyone near the elevators. If I could afford to, I would come back if you make your Ponce de Leon Towers have handicap access, and totally replaced, or overhauled elevators.

Owner's Response: Hello Bonnie, Thank you for your feedback as we value each and every guest's comments and concerns. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the condos interior and balcony, nothing is nicer that an oceanfront view! As for the bedding and ceiling fan issues, we wish you would have alerted us during your stay as we would have sent someone out immediately to handle. We try very hard to ensure that each guest has an enjoyable stay. It is not unusual to find bunkbeds in many of the properties as these are ideal for families with smaller children. New Smyrna Beach is well-known as being a family-friendly destination. The issue regarding the elevators and handicap access to the beach is something that the complex manager handles. Great Ocean Condos only manages the individual units that are privately owned. I would suggest contacting them directly as I am sure they would appreciate your feedback. Again, thank you for your review and we hope you will stay with us again in the near future. We offer a $50 return guest discount. The Great Ocean Team

Great Condo

  • 4 of 5

Great condo - layout . Clean . Really liked it. Only suggestion is don’t have the lock box key look like keys that don’t work front door. Although instructions were clear - it’s confusing to have keys that look the same and can get mixed up. Was charged 25 for wrong key placed in box.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for providing feedback. We do put a large key chain with our info on the keys that do not stay in the lock box. We also suggest guests just keep the lock box key in the lock box for the entire duration of their stay as to avoid any mix-ups or lock outs. We apologize for any confusion with the lock box key and do appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you back soon! -The Great Ocean Team

Loved every minute of it...

  • 5 of 5

I can’t think of how this condo could be any better. It is roomy and comfy and has everything you need for a stay on the beach. The unit comes with a washer and dryer which is so convenient. The view from the 8th floor is spectacular. It was home!

Great clean condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the condo. The only issue we had was our first night the elevator stopped with a big clunk and we were stuck between the 7th & 8th floors and the phone in elevator did not work. Good thing we had cell service as we had to call 911 to get out. I was just glad it didn’t happen when our 80 year old parents came to visit.

Great condo, it was exactly what we expected!

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful condo! It was very clean, the linens and beds were very comfortable. The view was great and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook with! The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is that the washer was very small and the dryer took FOREVER to dry a load-thus I spent our entire last day trying to get linens and towels clean so I wasn't charged for having "more than 2 loads" per the rental agreement. I also wish there had been a small tv in the room with the bunk beds. Really though we had a great time and would absolutely stay there again!

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.
