About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to paradise! New Smyrna is where the locals go to soak up some sun, breathe in the fresh salty air, and enjoy sunsets on the white sandy beaches. This quaint bungalow home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the ocean. You can cruise over on the beach bikes provided, take a nice brisk walk, or hop in your car and be there in minutes.

This home is warm and inviting with an island feel and cozy bedding. Everything you need to enjoy a fantastic vacation is there, so pack lightly. We provide a beach umbrella, beach chairs, towels, coolers, etc...It is located right on a water canal that leads to the intercoastal. The beach home has french doors that open up to the large screened-in pool with hot tub, an inviting backyard, and it faces the sunset. A new private covered boat dock is great for launching your flats boat, canoe, dropping a crab trap or just casting right from there. A built in bench puts you right over the water facing the mangroves and sunset.

Take a cruise down the canal in the canoe for two (provided) and you will be amazed at the type of wildlife you will see. The fish are jumping, so you fishermen out there, drop your flats boat down the ramp and head out for a great adventure. You may just want to lounge around in some beach chairs and watch the pelicans dive down for some fish. Have kids? There are plenty of toys and activities for the little ones to enjoy. Harley Davidson anyone? New Smyrna is a great time during bike week!! In the mood for music? You can usually find a live band playing at one of your local hot spots right on the ocean. Head down to Flagler Ave (about 3-4 miles down) and enjoy a quaint little town with shops, ice cream, pottery, etc..

Come to the town of New Smyrna Beach to relax and leave it all behind. You won't be disappointed, so don't miss out on a time you will never forget. Book online today!!

About Laurie

We are an active family of 5 that loves to fish, bike, surf, and boogie board. We fell in love with New Smyrna for it's little surf town feel, good restaurants, farmer's market, festivals, and so much family fun! We have seen manatee right in our back yard and dolphin right around the corner. We have caught red fish, trout and even a tarpon right off the dock! We try to make our home as comfortable as possible and continuously make improvements when able. We would love to have you enjoy our home as much as we do!

Why Laurie chose New Smyrna Beach

We bought this property due to its location away from the driving section of the beach, safe walking distance for the family, and right on the canal.

What makes this house unique

You get the best of both worlds to be right on a canal, a very private and quiet neighborhood, private dock/pool and walking distance to the ocean

A Great Place to Stay....Another Fantastic Family Vacation in New Smyrna Beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this great property. As we have three small children (5, 3 and 4 months), we were looking for a place that could accommodate their interests and needs, which this rental certainly did. Everything we needed for the baby was there- monitors, a bouncy chair, play pen and stroller, as well as many games, toys and movies for the children to play with. The owners were incredibly accommodating, dropping off a bike for our son a bike to ride, which literally inspired him to learn how to ride a two wheeler while we were on vacation!

The location of this home is great - a quick jog to the beach for runners (which I did every morning!), a very close bike ride or a even faster drive. As it was our 4th year back to New Smyrna, we were also central to other places we like to visit, including our favourite pizza place and to Canavaral National Park.

The amenities in the home were excellent- quality linens, flatware and pots and pans. After staying at a very "tired" property last year, it was wonderful to arrive and find everything in great condition, and very clean and well-maintained.

The pool and hot tub are excellent. Both are quite large, and were certainly well used by our entire family.

The dock is a sure hit. We enjoyed fishing and catching fish and crabs all week. Lots of action for sure! And the wildlife was spectacular- jumping fish every few minutes, a heron on the dock each morning, crabs everywhere. The boys were in their glory.

We sincerely appreciated the hospitality of the owners, who were a pleasure to deal with throughout our booking, stay and departure.

This is truly a great place for young families (and all families!) to stay. Thanks!

Wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time enjoying all the amenities offered with this rental. Kayaking right out of the back yard, biking to the beach, relaxing in the pool, or just watching one of many movies provided was great!

The kitchen was well stocked ,plently of linens were available,and many little extras to enjoy during your stay. The location,if you are not familiar with New Smryna, is the best. You are centrally located on the island, but tucked away for some quiet private time. We hope to coordinate our families schedules to enable us to visit again soon!

Excellent holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well maintained, great neighbourhood and location! Our family visited for a month and had a totally wonderful time. The home has been tastefully renovated and the layout is great for entertaining. The pool and hot tub is enclosed . We thoroughly enjoyed having the canal in our backyard. Thanks Laurie for allowing us to enjoy your home. Sue Brown, Shallow Lake, Ontario, Canada.

Such a nice home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week. There was a pool for our 7 year old, hot tub for all of us, and fishing right out the back door. The home was fully loaded. I appreciate the small things (i.e., salt and pepper shakers, a touch of vegetable oil in case we forgot to get some, sunburn relief lotion if needed, and things like that). Laurie and Larry have done a nice job updating the bathrooms and the living areas are casually decorated and comfy.

Our only feedback is that the shower mat in the master bath was a bit slippery and could cause a fall. We just took it out and that was that!

We recommend JBs fish camp for kayak rentals and a meal with a view. New Smyrna is a great little town for anyone who wants to be close enough to tourist areas but far away to avoid crowds and major traffic.

Very comfortable house on the water

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and grandson joined me for a week and we all greatly enjoyed our stay. The house is well equipped, clean and comfortable. Easy access to the beach by car or bike. Good fishing from the dock or from nearby boardwalk piers on the canal. Grandson liked the fishing and catching crabs in the large trap at the house. Quiet neighborhood. Overall, highly recommend.
