About Ruth A Edwards

I grew up in a northern suburb of Philadelphia. I work in a small hospital in Philadelphia as an Operating room nurse. I have three grown children,a handsome 4 year old grandson and a grandaughter on the way! In April 2015 my fiance Tom and I will be getting married. I vacationed in New Smyrna Beach as a teenager and young adult.

Ruth A Edwards purchased this house in 2014

Why Ruth A Edwards chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

A native of Pennsylvania, I enjoyed living in New Smyrna Beach for 8 1/2 years while my children were growing up. I relocated to Pennsylvania 10 years ago to be near my aging parents, but frequently return to re-experience the charm of New Smyrna. While in Pennsylvania I met Tom, now my fiance, who became as enchanted as I with this fabulous island paradise. (New Smyrna Beach is one of the barrier islands of Florida's Atlantic coast.) We bought this cottage as our future retirement home. For now, we're happy to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

Escape the cold harsh winter; make your getaway to this tropical barrier island on Florida's Atlantic coast. Soak in the relaxed, laid back atmosphere for which this Southern artist community is famous. Take long, leisurely walks on the beach in the morning, swim laps in your private pool in the afternoon, ride bikes through the quiet neighborhood, and relax and enjoy a cocktail in your private hot tub in the evening. Grill dinner on the gas grill out back, or enjoy one of the many wonderful restaurants this town has to offer. Explore New Smyrna's legendary night life. There are so many options available.

Are you a piano player? We have a Yamaha upright piano for your enjoyment. Are you a golfer? Try one of New Smyrna's three golf courses. You might care to visit the charming shops on Flagler Avenue, or rent a motor scooter to explore the island, or try your luck at one of the tables on the Victory Casino Cruise ship. The possibilities are endless. One word of warning: you may never want to leave.

Was ok, but not great

  • 3 of 5

Good location to the beach and not far from good food. House needs to have regular maintenance done. Second day there, we had a AC problem and had to stay all day and wait for a repair man. We had to cancel our original plans and lost 360.00 in express pass tickets. Owner would not compensate the loss of this due to negligence of an dirty air filter, as the cause. House also needs to have regular pesticide sprayed as there was ants and roaches. Pool needed to be cleaned, wasn't very bad, but again the filter system was poor. House did not have trash bags, paper towels, ziplock baggies, dishwasher detergent, and ice in ice maker was frozen solid. Overall, I can say it was a decent place, but would probably not recommend. I booked this based on the previous reviews and was expecting a better result.

Wonder place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. The house was laid out perfectly. We had 4 in our party and it could accommodate up to 5 adults. The backyard, pool, and hot tub were clean. Plenty of beach tools in the garage. The bonus was it was only a 10 min from the beach. Looking forward to next year to rent this place again.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed having the pool, it was nice to come home to after a long day on the beach. The use of the beach buggy made our short walk to the beach very easy. The beach is very clean and family friendly. We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back next year. Thank you for sharing it with us! - The Metts Family.

Great proximity to beach, nice house

  • 4 of 5

Ruth was incredibly prompt and professional in all of our dealings with her. The booking was quick and easy, and the house was an easy 45 minute drive from the Sanford airport.

The house was clean and had lots of amenities you would not get in a condo or timeshare, such as kitchen sundries, board games, books, and laundry detergent. The only thing lacking were some dishrags (which must have just been an oversight), and the seat on one of the bikes had disintegrated, so we weren't able to go out for bike rides together. The TV was a bit outdated, but we didn't turn it on once, so it was no problem!

Unfortunately, the pool and hot tub would not heat for us, so we could not use them for the first 3 days of our trip. I mistakenly emailed the owner at the VRBO email address, rather than calling her cell phone, which delayed us getting a response. As it turned out, the gas had been shut off after the previous renters closed their account for the gas hook-up. Once this was figured out and the gas company came, we were able to enjoy a BBQ our last night in the pool and hot tub. It was absolutely fantastic. I should mention that Ruth gave us a discount for the inconvenience, which was appreciated.

I would stay here again, and would recommend to others. The price was not exorbitant, and Ruth was friendly and easy to deal with. I would come to New Smyrna Beach again any time we are seeking a quiet, warm and sunny destination!

Wow, an amazing home!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a nice time at Miss Ruth's home. It was beautiful and the backyard with pool and spa was amazing. The beach was a quick 5 minute walk and was not crowded at all. I think we have found a gem on the East coast of Florida. I am already trying to convince my husband to let us go back in June since our trip was cut short by the hurricane. Thank you Ruth for opening up your home to us!

Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house and it was everything promised! The house was very clean, inviting and pleasant, the perfect home away from home. My children loved the pool and we loved how close the house is to the beach. The pictures shown online are very accurate. We would definitely return if we are in the area again. The beach was not crowded and the sand was like powder! Again the amenities were wonderful, the kitchen was beyond well equipped, you could cook anything. Having access to a full size washer/dryer was so nice during a trip as well. I can't say enough nice things about this place. Truly a tropical oasis!
