Perfect Florida homes in charming quaint New Smyrna Beach! New Smyrna Beach is the best-hidden little secret on the Atlantic Shore, and Kate’s Places are the gems of this quaint beach town.

Relax, indulge and be pampered, you are at a Kate’s Place, you are HOME!

Guests come back to NSB year after year for the ideal beach location close to Central Florida's world-famous attractions. Walt Disney World, Epcot, Sea World, and Universal Studios are only 1 hour and 15 minute drive away. Only a 20 minute drive north is Daytona, with its exciting International Speedway, and popular Bike Week activities.

New Smyrna is a barrier island positioned between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River. The beaches of New Smyrna stretch over 13 miles along the sandy east coast of Central Florida. Water activities abound. New Smyrna is the surfing capital of Florida-- try it yourself or watch the locals ride the big waves near the jetties. Play in the surf, gather seashells, or build a sandcastle with your kids or grandkids. From Ponce de Leon Inlet, you can embark on a great deep sea fishing adventure. Or choose to stay closer to the shore for excellent flats fishing in Mosquito Lagoon, famous for its redfish.

Kate's Riverfront Villas @ Dolphin Cove are brand new (2017) 2 bedroom 2 bathroom one story villas in a direct riverfront community with boat/fishing docks are available. They are renovated from floor to ceiling with all brand new marble counters, new stainless steel appliances, new paint, new floors and customized walk-in rain showers.

There are community boat and fishing docks (private docks coming soon, each unit has its own dock, additional charge may apply), where you can watch dolphins and manatees while you are fishing on the dock; or you can enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding in front of the villas with these friendly lovely creatures. A riverside boardwalk is in the plan to be built and a direct riverside community pool is being built as well.

The community is so perfectly located, only across the bridge from the beach, many people bike to Flagler Ave to the beach. It is right by downtown New Smyrna Beach Canal Street where there are Farmers' Market, street fairs on the weekend and plenty fantastic restaurants and local boutique shops. The new Civic Center is right around the corner. The Marina is right across the street.

We have several villas available. Some are direct waterfront with screened in porches facing the river; some are non-direct riverfront villas with patios and private boat docks on the river:

- Non-riverfront Courtyard Villa

$2,650 per month;

- Non-riverfront Large Villa

$2,750 per month

- Direct Riverfront VIP Villa

$3,275 per month

For short term vacation rentals, all costs are rent plus 12.5% tax and a one time cleaning fee of $125. There is an additional Damage Deposit: $500 (Fully refundable per term).

All units will have private boat docks. The finish date is not yet confirmed. We intend to provide several water sport options once the boat docks are in place - such as pontoon, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, etc. Additional charge will apply when boat docks are completed.

About Kate

My family and I live locally and we love this special quaint beach town. We discovered that when we have friends and family come to visit us and stay here for a while, they all become more relaxed, healthier and much happier. When they have to leave, they all can't wait to return again. Many of them have told us that there is something so very special about New Smyrna Beach, something that brings so much joy and excitement to the children; something that brings peace and romance to the grownups and something that brings health and happiness to the grandparents and other Young-at-Hearts. We decided that we would like to share with more people this wonderful experience and help to bring them more happiness and beautiful memories of New Smyrna Beach. That is why we now have several high quality vacation homes designed for families and couples that are looking for a comfortable stay at safe and conveniently located communities near the beach, golf courses, shopping and restaurants. Please see all our listings: VRBO Listing #679640, #679245, #694144, #733173, #721253 and #905705

We spent a month in this townhouse after staying in several places in Florida. We are recent retirees from Canada and we wanted to find a place we could come back to. John and Kate's condo was by far the best we stayed in. Even the price was reasonable. Unfortunately it was already booked for next winter, but we are hoping to stay in one of their new places. Here's what we liked about the townhouse: -It's spacious -The decor is great and the furniture comfortable (amazing huge flat screen TV). -The view of the lake was calming and the lake changed at different times of day, from a reflective mirror to a sparkling surface or a part of the sunset. -The bird life was fabulous. We watched (and heard) and pair of nesting sandhill cranes, as well as saw egrets, ibis, wood storks, herons, and a variety of ducks. -The beach was a quick drive down Highway 44, or you could go the back way down Pioneer Drive. The beach is one of the best in Florida, and great to walk on. Park free at Mi Mexico and walk for miles in either direction. -There's a wonderful Publix supermarket, mall and movie theatre just a short drive along I95. -And of course John and Kate were readily available and just a few minutes away. When we came to Florida we imagined we would most of our time outdoors, but that isn't the case. It's important to have a nice place to stay, and this is definitely it!

We had a fantastic experience with Kate and this property!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough positive things about our recent stay. Kate was wonderful in helping us plan things to do while we were there. The condo was beautiful and had everything we could ask for! Kate and John were both helpful while we were there. The beach was gorgeous and just a short walk. We would recommend this to anyone and hope to return to enjoy it again!!

5 star "Lords"

  • 5 of 5

Our experience dealing with Kate and John was second to none. The home was beautifully furnished with every item you and your family might need. If you had a question or needed a answer, Kate as there. Your are literally a few miles from wherever you want to go including golf, the beautiful beach, shopping etc.

You WILL NOT be disappointed! Wheather your staying at the Lake House, at Turnbull or at the beach, if Kate and John are involved, you'll have a fantastic time.

Literally the best landlords you could ask for !

Another terrific experience at Kate's place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good experience staying at another of Kate's places, that we booked this townhouse for our next trip. Kind and accommodating, the owners went the extra mile with small details throughout the clean, stylish, and well taken care of townhouse that helped us feel at home. The neighborhood is quiet, yet close by to shopping, beaches, and restaurants. Our kids loved the place too and enjoyed walking the paths and swimming in the nearby pool. We highly recommend this townhouse.

Truly home away from home + a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a weeklong vacation, where we stayed at this location. This is a great place to stay, if you are thinking of vacationing in the area. The house is a short minutes driving from Daytona Beach and Speedway, and it is nicely located in the middle of the popular tourist attractions - Orlando (Disney World, Universal Studios) at the south, and St. Augustine (the oldest city in States) at the north. All amenities are close by, such as the superstore (with fresh groceries), farmers markets, restaurants, swimming pool, and of course one of the best beaches in the States. Here are what my kids commented about the staying - one said: "The house is nicely furnished has fast internet and many TV channels…We really enjoyed our time at Kate's Places and hope to visit again." and the other mentioned: "The neighborhood is very clean and quiet…This has been a great experience and I would definitely stay again."

Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was exactly what we needed! As three students needing to stay for part of the summer for classes, we wanted a clean house to stay in that was not a dorm, close to the beach but close enough to drive to Stetson, and this was perfect for us. We were able to use the kitchen to cook our meals easily, enjoy movie nights in the family room, and most importantly sleep well. The neighborhood pool down the street was great to leisurely or recreationally enjoy. The beach was very close and it was nice to be away from the congested area, but close enough to get to whenever. We were able to finish classes as well as enjoy our summertime at the house. Overall, this was an awesome place for us to stay!
