A visit to the Turnbull and Sugar Mills ruins and historic Ponce Lighthouse will keep your historical side exploring and Surfers alight...No need to look elsewhere!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

A short walk or bike ride to everything. I LOVE NSB and really enjoyed having a place to sleep so close to everything. Amber has thought of everything and is a wonderful hostess. I am looking forward to my next visit already!

Cute bungalow worthy of a stay in New Smyrna Beach!

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint off street bungalow within easy walking distance of the beach and downtown NSB. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen is a bit small but was satisfactory for our stay since we mostly ate out. Amber was quite nice and gave us a good orientation even though we came in just a little early. Several beach supplies and two bikes were available for our use too. Overall, the value was excellent!

Biloxi, Ms.

comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for 1 or 2 people. The cottage is well appointed and thought out. The property and the neighborhood is beautiful. Only a few blocks to all the attractions and restaurants yet when you return all is quiet and relaxed. Couldn't have been happier.

clean, darling space with exquisite attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I did a Bucket List Trip weekend to Daytona to spend a day at the Speedway, and a day to sit on the beach doing nothing other than relax and have a nice dinner, and this bungalow was our HOME comfort for our fun weekend, easily accessible to our destinations.
