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 New Smyrna Beach

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.

new smyrna beach 2018

  • 5 of 5

great location, house very clean and had everything we needed. The neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. The bicycles were used almost daily and it was great to be able to ride them on the beach. The TV needs to be upgraded especially if you are a long term renter and watch it daily. The pool was nice but when we rented the property (in Feb and March) we didn't get much use of it. The spa was great. It was nice to be able to go to the beach and watch the sun rise. We would definitely rent again.

The house was wonderful, the beach was a little further than what we thought but not bad. There is a parking lot right across the street from the beach. Ruth was very easy to get a hold of when we needed. We like to watch TV in the evenings and the TV is a little outdated. Thank you for everything Ruth.

Exactly as it was described!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our sweet daughter had amazing time down there. It was our first time using vrbo homeaway app and the experience was wonderful.. it was our first time vacation as well with our sweet daughter who turned one year old. The host kept in touch just incase we had problems. She was very responsive caring and helpful. I would highly recommend this place to others as well. The only advise that I have which is would be great update TV .. other than that everything was fantastic.. there were games, board, monopoly , toys, etc available which was really nice... very close to the beach... swimming pool and jacuzzi was awesome!! Thank you for excellent service and everything else.

Enjoyed our visit. (overall A-)

  • 4 of 5

The house is very well laid out. In a great location. The only issues were minor, but worth mentioning.

1) the pool/spa control was nearly impossible to figure out since the labeling on the buttons is worn off. That's a shame because once my wife (who is pretty tech savvy) figured it out the spa heated up really quick. The pool did not need heating.

2) The bed is not the most comfy in the world but its not bad, just bring your own pillows.

I know I'm spoiled, but just a couple of things to plan on ahead of time. Neither of these would keep us from going back. In fact I'd go back tomorrow if i could.

Owner's Response: Dear Andy, Thank you for your review and suggestions! I am having a new spa heater installed with outside controls instead of the remote to make the spa easier to heat. We just bought a new Beauty Rest mattress for the front bedroom with head elevation controls. I also bought all new pillows. Glad you had a wonderful vacation, and looking forward to your next stay in our beach home. Best regards, Ruth

Not only do you have your own private pool, but you are only two blocks away from the most beautiful beach! The house was very clean and had all the amenities! Full kitchen, washer and dryer, two full bathrooms, beach and pool toys! It was so nice having that beach cart to haul all of our stuff for the short walk down to the beach. Definitely will choose to stay here again! The owner was very easy to get ahold of when I had any questions. My family absolutely loved it.
