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 many 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, by the river, near downtown, on golf courses, near shopping and restaurants.

Please see all our listings: VRBO Listing #905705, #694144, #733173 and #721253.

Kate purchased this villa in 2015

Why Kate chose New Smyrna Beach

Sea Woods is a magical place in New Smyrna Beach! Across the street from no-drive beach, amongst 50 acres of lush foresty landscape is our 2 bedroom 2 bathroom luxuriously furnished, fully equipped beach veranda with all recreational facilities on site.

This beautiful beach veranda is on the ground floor and by the heated pool, gym and a library. A short walk to the sand or ride your bike across the street to the beach. The spacious patio is screened and tiled.

A fantastic vacation home in a convenient yet quiet area, one of the best location in Sea Woods.


Kate's Villas are in a direct riverfront community on Coronado Island, NSB. 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.

These villas are 2017 newly and completely 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 WILL 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.

What makes this villa unique

Sea Woods has the best of all worlds: Steps to the no-drive safer beach; private and quiet; nestled amongst lush shady trees; near many restaurants and shopping - close to everything yet away from it all.

It is very rare to find direct riverfront one story villas in NSB. This is a very small community sits away from all traffic right on the river yet only a bike ride away form Flagler Ave and Downtown Canal Street. Amazing location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kate and John were so accommodating and kind. They placed the meals I ordered from Plated, in the refrigerator and freezer the day before we arrived. They provided cream cheese, bagels, coffee, tea, water and chips, and were attentive to questions we had on the best restaurants and grocery stores. I felt very much at ease knowing they were easily accessible for any concerns we had. They even provided washing machine soap, softener, shampoo, conditioner..you name it. It felt like home. The location was superb! Just a few short blocks to the pristine private beach. We loved the little trail through the woods by sea. It was so nice to have shade in the sweltering heat. The neighborhood was quiet and very appealing. Everyday when we came in from surfing, the pool was a nice way to cool down and relax. The pool was spotlessly clean and just a few steps from the veranda. The porch was very nice to hang out in the early morning. Kate, hats off to you for the great job of decorating. I have very similar taste as you. Thank you for rushing to get the place ready in time for us. Your meticulous attention to detail is very much appreciated. Thanks so much! It was a pleasure to rent from you two! If and when we come back, we will put you at the top of the list! Sicerely, Teresa, Rob, and Dan

Relaxing get away location

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the Sea Woods resort is very beautiful, with lots of trees, walking paths and beautiful homes. It is very well manicured and maintained. There are tennis and pickleball courts (byo racquets) and a shuffleboard court. There are three pools, one of which was heated to at least the mid 80's while we were there. This heated pool is just steps outside the condo's front door. But don't worry, the noise from the pool won't disturb you. The resort is very quiet, is patrolled by security and the pool closes in the evening. There is also a well equipped fitness room and sauna beside the pool.

The condo itself is decorated in the beach theme and it was very clean. There is large screened in porch on the back that was a great place to have coffee in the mornings. The unit was stocked with most of the items that you may need while on vacation, ie spices in kitchen, detergent pods in laundry and soaps/toilet paper in washrooms etc. I especially liked the number combination door lock because it meant you never had to remember your key when you left to walk on the beach! The beach is just on the other side of the road and there are pedestrian signals to assist in crossing the road. We saw numerous crabs on the beach and there was even an injured dolphin that needed assistance. The beach stretches on for 13 miles and is beautiful. The town of New Smyrna Beach has it all and we especially liked the Flagler Ave Historic area which was a nice street to walk along and browse in the beach shops. Unfortunately we didn't get out in the kayaks; we will save that for next time. Kate is great and always responds promptly. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 weeks, February to March and thoroughly enjoyed this unit. It is our second time staying here and when we walked in this year it felt like home. The property is well maintained, just steps from the heated pool, a five minute walk to the lovely no drive beach, close to restaurants, various attractions and shopping. We have made friends with other Sea Woods residents and it was nice to see them again and catch up on each other's lives since last year. As always Kate, John and David are very helpful and available whenever you have a question or need assistance. We thoroughly enjoy staying here. Thank you Kate, John and David for helping to make our stay so enjoyable, see you next year.

Peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay! We walked in to a very clean, peaceful environment with a personalized welcome message and calming music playing. The touches were so thoughtful! We loved being within walking distance to the beach. It was so nice having access to some beach toys so we did not have to purchase anything for that. Kate had some great recommendations for us on restaurants and things to do. This was our first time staying somewhere other than a hotel while on vacation and I think we will be doing it again!!

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Woods. Kate's Place is by far one of the best places we have ever stayed. The condo was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Loved sitting out on the veranda in the mornings to read and have a cup of tea. The heated pool, which was just steps from our front door, was great to relax in after a day at the beach or shopping. All essentials were provided. Kate and John were delightful. Kate was always quick to answer any questions we had when we were making arrangements for our stay. John was there to rescue us on our first night there after we walked too far down the beach to find a place to eat. It was getting dark by the time we finished eating. He was coming to our place to show us around and swung by the restaurant to pick us up.

There is so much to do in New Smyrna Beach and surrounding areas. The beach is directly across the street from the front entrance to Sea Woods and is a beautiful beach to soak up the sun or just take a refreshing walk. There are so many great restaurants to choose from and lots of quaint little shops on Canal and Flagler. The Hub on Canal St. is a great place to visit to see local artists and to purchase their art works. We took a day trip to Blue Springs State Park to go on an eco tour on the St. John's River Cruise and another day trip to Mt. Dora, enjoying a shopper's paradise.

Definitely will be returning for another vacation at Kate's Place. Thanks so much Kate and John for your hospitality!

My sister and I were welcomed by John and Kate, John unloaded the vehicle while Kate showed us our home for the month of April. We felt very special. Amazing and caring couple that do everything they can to make you feel at home. And we did ! Loved the veranda, walked the beach daily (just a short walk away), and basked in the warm sun by the heated pool. Everything one needed was there to enjoy in comfort. It was our first time, so the recommendations were welcomed. Memories! Memories! Thank you John and Kate for making us feel at home.
