Amazing place to stay. Very clean, cozy and comfortable. Just a few blocks from the beach, lots of cute shops and amazing restaurants to eat at or just to simply have a drink while enjoying the waves. I highly recommend it.

We had such an amazing time! Amber, our host was and is fantastic! Very personable, helpful and kind. She'll respond to any of your needs or questions prior to your visit promptly. She had great suggestions for us and made sure our trip was special. The cottage truly is a few blocks from the beach and from Flagler Ave where all the action happens! Be sure to hit up "Bounty" the speakeasy upstairs from the Flagler Tavern. If you love 1920s anything, quiet, chill, mature environments and fantastic mixology, GO! Be sure to sign the cottage wall before you leave as a moment for Amber!
The Bearfoot Beach Bungalow is the perfect place to stay in New Smyrna Beach. You can literally walk to the beach, the river, or a cpl blocks over to Flagler Ave. It is a short drive from the Daytona Beach airport.
The Bungalow is just right for a couple or a single person to stay in. It's kinda like having your own little place. It is a separate building from the owner's house. If you come and go at night there are automatic sensor lights to guide you around to the right of the building to your door. You have your own little patio out back in a fenced in backyard in a quiet peaceful neighborhood. There are a few beach items available for you to use. There is a nice outside shower and water hose to clean the sand off when you return from the beach. This is a lot easier than trying to travel with a lot of stuff and then dealing with the mess in a hotel room.
The owner is the coolest, most laid back host you could hope for! She makes you feel at home. Anytime we are going to the central east part of Florida, this is where we will stay!!!
The place was great but the ad is a little misleading. This is not a one bedroom bungalow, but a bachelor living space that is on the property of a bungalow. There is not a full kitchen. There is a beer fridge, toaster oven and ice maker. Amber was very accommodating though and let us use her electric grill outside. The property is really nice with great beach bikes to borrow. Anyone looking to stay in a pretty area close to the beach, main strip, state park and amenities, this is perfect.
What an awesome surprise to find this little hidden gem! It is everything we dreamed of and more....close to the beach, bikes provided, outside shower, quiet and private. We had no idea that we would be so close to the start/finish of the Sharkbite Half marathon. So convenient! We were able to take bikes everywhere. This was our first visit to NSB and we loved it! The Bearfoot Beach Bungalow has everything that you need to relax and enjoy a beach getaway. Can't wait to come back! Thank you.
And that's what I got: All CLEAN, no service personnel. No hotel stairs, no maids or parking lots, or noise. No other tourists, either :) This quirky, fun bungalow is in a good solid neighborhood (of fun homes and beautiful old trees ) behind a privacy fence surrounding a HUGE shaded yard, complete with hammock! The bungalow is set back some in the yard, and the entrance with its own little patio is behind and on the opposite side from the main house, so I felt like I was living in my own Private Paradise. Effective motion-activated night lights provided a safe, easy guide to the outside shower at night. The inside bathroom w/spacious shower is very nice; but I fell in love with the outside shower! Storage is limited, but there's a mirrored dresser just inside the entryway, beside the small kitchen. We ended up putting some of our things under the bed. The next room is large, with window AC for temp and humidity control. The bed is AWESOME, and I'm picky! Luxury bedding, pillows, and towels were a treat. There's a remote controlled cable TV, and remote-controlled overhead lighting/fan control in the bed/living room. Big nice couch, big windows with good blinds. The bath also has a vacuum fan. Water is good and hot. Owner was always cheerful and friendly, but I saw little of her unless I asked for her amazing info on all things local - especially the restaurants. A friend (with a newly broken ankle) came to join me in a few days, and we had no problem navigating the bungalow/bathroom with the "knee scooter". There are two Cruiser bikes with baskets and locks for shopping or riding the beautiful and paved Nature Trails nearby. If you look at the maps on the BearFoot Beach Bungalow (?) page, you'll see how convenient it is to anything you want! I walked a few blocks to a really good Health Food Store. I will definitely book this again; because it provides what I need in a vacation, without most of the things that are a hassle. Didn't help with the airport stuff, though. :)
We loved staying at the Bearfoot Beach Bungalow. It was absolutely perfect for the extended weekend. The house had everything we needed for our stay. The owner is super hospitable and friendly. She was able to answer all our questions and gave great advice on places around town. The house is fantastically located, just a few houses off the beach and one street off of the main street, Flagler where all the shops are. The house even comes with bicycles to ride around town, which is perfect for New Smyrna Beach. Really enjoyed our stay here, and already talking about when we can stay here again in the spring. Great house, great town! We really fell in love with Florida again on this stay.
