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.

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.
I've been spending January in New Smyrna Beach for many years. This year we decided to get away from the beach and found this gem in Edgewater, right on the river. This house feels like a real home and is beautifully appointed. We cooked most evenings and there is nothing missing in the kitchen. It has a completely fenced in yard, a double level dock, ideal for gathering with a glass of wine and watching dolphins. We saw at least one most days. The owner is very responsive and accommodating. We can't wait to return next January.
Our family of six adults and two children aged 3 and 5, had a really wonderful stay over Christmas at Bella Luna. My wife communicated with the owner, Kelley, from the beginning and she treated us like her own family. She had the house decorated for Christmas throughout and had a 5 ft. tall tree with decorations provided. The master bedroom and shower on the second floor are very large and the accommodations on the first floor worked well for our children's families. The house and garage were stocked with everything you would need to have a good time, whether cooking, fishing, kayaking or going to the beach just a short walk away. There were 4 flat-screen TVs, DVDs, games and X-Box as well as board games, puzzles and books. The house was very light and spacious and decorated in an attractive and interesting beach motif. There was a thick notebook providing information on the local area, entertainment, plus restaurants and included maps. All of us absolutely loved our week stay, would highly recommend it and would love to return again in the future. Steven
Thank you Kelley for opening up your home in NSB to us. Always have loved Riverside Drive and loved staying in your home. Beautiful home that offers great amenities to guests. We had a fantastic week and will be looking forward to returning and staying in your home again. Great memories-great stay. Happy Holidays and thanks again.
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.
Located in quiet residential area on river. Sidewalk along river great for walks and wildlife viewing.
