The Best of Both Worlds (River and Beach Living). Come relax and enjoy the sunrise, birds, dolphins, manatees, sailboats, fishing, kayaking, boating, crabs, beach and beautiful Intracoastal Waterway (Indian River) at Bella Luna Villa in Edgewater, Florida (next door neighbor to New Smyrna Beach). Great place for large families (or two families) with kids and dogs.
This beautiful two story home was built in 2007 and features (2) water front porches, private patio courtyard, private dock with 2nd story deck on Intracoastal Waterway, (3) bedrooms, (3) full baths, office (with WiFi), garage, fenced front and back yards, 2 person kayak, 3 bicycles, gas grill, and outside shower. We also have (4) mounted flat screen TVs, (4) bluray players with lots of movies and an XBOX 360 located throughout the house. Bella Luna have everything you need for a great day on the water or at the beach (towels, chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, etc).
Two City parks (one with a beach) are located nearby (within 1/2 mile walk) to launch your boat to access the Intracoastal waterway (and our dock to keep your boat) and a continuous sidewalk is located along Intracoastal for great morning and afternoon walks. Located within walking distance are numerous places for morning coffee, pastries, lunch, looking for a good book and even bait for your fishing adventures. New Smyrna Beach is also only 5 miles away (just over the bridge). Edgewater, New Smyrna and Port Orange are home to fabulous eateries, beach stores, antique/consignment/thrift stores,wildlife, outdoor activities and history (Minorcans from Spain settled this area). Bella Luna Villa is only (25) minutes south of Daytona Beach, (1) hour northeast of Orlando and all its many attractions (Disney, Seaworld, Universal Studios) and (1) hour north of Kennedy Space Center.
Our family inherited this beautiful property and redecorated it to use as a weekend and holiday retreat. It is near lots of things to do, yet in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We like to share her with others since we can't use it all the time. Great neighbors and laid back waterfront living.
Kelley Swain purchased this house in 2013
I grew up in Orlando but spent summers at New Smyrna Beach. Love the laid back and friendly people and local food.
Located just south of New Smyrna Yacht Club so we see lots of beautiful boats traveling the Intracoastal Waterway. The water can be viewed from most rooms in the house and thoroughly enjoyed on the big covered porch.
Our family of five went to Bella Luna for spring break for some much needed down time. The house is so much more than the pictures show. We were able to do a little bit of nothing, but also went deep see fishing, hung out at the beach, walked our dog along the river, looked for hermit crabs at the park south of the house and ate lots of great food at the local restaurants (suggested by the owner)s. Mostly enjoyed sipping coffee or wine (depending on the time of day) on the porch overlooking the water watching the sailboats and dolphins.
We just spent 12 lovely days at Bella Luna and without a doubt it was a 5 star experience. It is a beautiful home located directly on the ICW in Edgewater with direct boating access to the Mosquito Lagoon, Ponce Inlet, and many waterfront destinations in the New Smyrna and Edgewater area. Accommodations were very clean and comfortable and the owners have thoughtfully provided just about everything you could want to enjoy your stay. They reached out several times before our visit to make sure all our questions were addressed and also followed up during the stay to make sure things were going smoothly. Edgewater and New Smyrna are both beautiful communities with gorgeous homes along the river, great restaurants and night spots are nearby, the beaches are 10 minutes away and the dock and river are right out the front door. What could be better?
Bella Luna was absolutely beautiful, and we loved our stay both there and in the Edgewater/New Smyrna Beach area. The house was completely spotless, and all the rooms, furnishings, and EVERYTHING were so welcoming and perfect. We are already talking about returning to Bella Luna next summer. The perfect getaway to just simply enjoy life and your family, and a nice way to unplug from work, technology, and other daily distractions.
I rented this home for a family vacation June 2016. The home is situated along the Indian River / ICW in Edgewater Florida. The owner has maintained this property very well. The home is very clean and very well appointed. It is spacious with a huge master suite upstairs and two nice bedrooms on the first floor. The master suite bathroom is quite remarkable. The owner has looked after every detail so that your stay is comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped and even had a great selection of spices for cooking. It is very well decorated with nice details everywhere you look. The owner has furnished this home as their own and not as a rental with cheap linens and towels. The beds were all very clean and comfortable with good linens. Chairs on the front porch all had nice pillows. A nice shaded breezeway exists between the house and double car garage.
Across the street is a nice two story gated dock. The dock is suitable on the inside for up to a 20' boat. Ponce Inlet is about a 30 minute boat ride away. The dock has approximately 1 1/2 ft of water at low tide and 3 ft at high tide. Several houses north there is a park with a launch ramp. Several houses to the south is another park with a picnic area and fishing dock. A nice sidewalk for walking, running or riding bikes goes for miles along the river past beautiful homes. New Smyrna Beach is a 15-20 minute car ride away.
My family really enjoyed our stay at Bella Luna. We hope to stay again. Fun time spent swimming, fishing, crabbing, cooking, boating and simply relaxing.
A wonderful clean, well maintained, well appointed, comfortable property with fun on the water. To the owners a sincere thank-you for sharing such a wonderful property.
When you walk into Bella Luna you can't believe your eyes! The views from all over the property are amazing. It has everything a family vacation requires, such as places to sit and talk while feeling the ocean breezes, not to mention a wonderful two level dock for fun and sun. Bella Luna has all of the activity based items you'd ever need for family fun! I highly recommend a stay and the owner Kelley is a true joy to work with! If you have furry member of the family, this place caters to them! Just remember to check your stress at the door when you arrive!
This was our first VRBO rental and what a wonderful experience at Bella Luna Villa, all First Class. The owners were very informative and responsive to any of our questions. Upon arrival, they wanted to make sure we had arrived and were comfortable with the home and if we had any questions.
This property was set up with any and everything you would need in the kitchen and a very clean and well maintained property. They even provided recreational equipment.
We enjoyed a very relaxing week, from the beautiful front porch overlooking the ICW, watching the sun rise and sipping our morning coffee. The location was perfect for a boating retreat with the boat ramp so close. There is a waterfront park, just a few yards away, which was perfect for a great short walk for our dog to enjoy, several times a day.
I would highly recommend this property for your enjoyment.
We are looking forward to this becoming an annual retreat for our extended family. The best part was how the owners provided Perfect Weather during our visit.

The house is very spacious, well appointed and beautifully maintained. The upstairs suite is definitely 5 star! Kelley was right on the spot when we mentioned there was no tea pot. She brought one over the following day. Also one of the bikes had a flat and that was fixed immediately. The activities mentioned are all available but in February it was a bit cool for some things involving water sports. I would definitely recommend the house to friends. There are numerous very good restaurants close by. The Canal Street area has the Corkscrew, Half Wall, Yellow Dog and others. Beach side has too many to mention but we really enjoyed the Garlic, Heavenly cafe, Toni and Joe's and the German International Deli. Overall, Edgewater is a delightful place to visit. Thanks Kelley for your help.
Located in quiet residential area on river. Sidewalk along river great for walks and wildlife viewing.
