About Jim & Bev Bragg
Jim & I grew up in Clarksburg, WV & moved to the Orlando area in 1978 where we lived & worked for 30 yrs while raising our two daughters. We quickly fell in love with the relaxed Florida lifestyle and especially this "CHARMING" little beach town of New Smyrna Beach. We have lived in NSB since retiring in 2008 & absolutely LOVE our small beach town!!! Flagler Av always has something fun going on ie. art shows, wine walks, community parades, fireworks etc. good restaurant's and bars. The mainland downtown is located on Canal St. It is equally as charming with several alfresco restaurants & great little shops. There's also a new wine shop, an olive oil/ balsamic vinegar shop and two new local brewery's on Canal.
Jim & Bev Bragg purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Jim & Bev Bragg chose New Smyrna Beach
ISLAND LIFE!!! RELAXATION!!! New Smyrna is a Florida Barrier Island located between the Indian River/ Intracoastal and the Atlantic Ocean. This unique location offers river activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, on one side and just across the street you have all that the Atlantic Ocean has to offer such as walking, biking, running, surfing, wind surfing, boogie boarding, volley ball, badminton, along w/ all the sports you can think to play on the beach, not short sighting the incredible relaxation of just sitting and watching the waves, reading a book or laying in the sun. It makes for a vacation you will be dreaming about for the rest of the year!!! By the way NSB was voted one of the top 3 small beach towns in Florida by Florida Magazine. It's an artsy little town. There's always something fun to do. We have 2 downtown areas, beach side downtown is on Flagler Av. with lots of independently owned shops, bars and
What makes this Condo unique
The most beach frontage of any condo property located on this island, 600 linear ft. affording a quieter, roomier beach visit. You will find plenty of elbow room on our area of the beach! Our condo is located on the ocean and lies between the Intracoastal/Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean. Also, the Canaveral National Seashore a National Park is just past our condo about 6 miles @ the end of the island. There are so many activities offered at the National Park. They give classes on clamming, digging for oysters, fishing, plus there are historical lessons offered on the Timucuan Indians, who lived on the island in the winters over 2000 years ago. Be sure and visit Turtle Mound the Indian midden where they have found many Indian artifacts.

This was the most Accommodating condo I have ever rented! Absolutely Beautiful inside and out. We loved everything about it. We loved our week here. I was so thankful for the well stocked kitchen. I didn't have to bring anything except food. Having all the beach items and a washer and dryer there were the icing on the cake! It was worth every penny :-)

Most Enjoyable Vacation EVER!
Condo was fully stocked and very nicely decorated. Definitely gave a "Beach" vibe. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Bragg!!!!
Thank you for your kind remarks Diana! It's not often we get 4 teens at one time! Thanks for leaving a nice note in our guest book. It sounded like the kids really had a great time and we were so glad they had a memorable beach trip!

Great location & beautiful place!
We enjoyed our time here. Beautiful, Clean, & Private Beach. The condo was fantastic.
My family and I enjoyed a week here after a long Iowa winter. Jim and Bev thought of all the amenities that a young family could enjoy using without having to pack them. The no drive beach was great for our kids and the pool was also perfect when needing a break from the beach. The condo had everything we needed and Bev was wonderful to work with. We definitely look forward to visiting again in the future.
