At Seaside Hideaway, you will find that the bright, airy, and jovial ambiance of this adorable beach cottage is a perfect reflection of the sea and sands that await your family during your Florida beach vacation. Ideally located just two blocks from the no-drive, picturesque beaches of Wilbur-by-the-Sea, this meticulously maintained "home away from home" boasts a relaxed and beachy charm alongside the latest modern amenities.

Right when you pull into the private driveway featuring three private parking spaces, you will notice the owners take great pride in the upkeep of every aspect of this home. Once you make your way past the lush, manicured front lawn patiently waiting to host a game of catch, kids and adults alike will be thrilled with the fully stocked garage filled with all sorts of beach toys and treasures, beach chairs, boogie boards, surf boards, bikes for all ages, a wagon, and a convenient beach cart. Open the front door and immediately take in the vibrant interior finished with beautiful colors and fabrics, natural textures and furnishings, and playful adornments and nautical details throughout--right away you just know it's the perfect home base for an incredible, memorable vacation.

Your family will love the open layout that still feels so warm and inviting, thanks to a spacious living area featuring a large flat-screen TV and comfortable, plush seating. The up-to-date kitchen comes fully equipped with new appliances, all the modern conveniences, and an expansive center island. A big farmhouse-style dining table just begs for everyone to gather around to recap the day's adventures. Quiet mornings and breezy evenings can be spent on the cozy, shaded porch with outside seating for six and your own BBQ grill. Don't feel like cooking? Stroll right across the street to the local marina, grab a picnic table, and dine at their casual indoor/outdoor Boondocks restaurant while taking in the boats swaying across the beautiful sunset. Don't forget to save some french fries for the thousands of catfish swarming the dock, just waiting for their next meal!

A total of three beautifully designed, immaculate bedrooms--along with a bonus room--accommodate up to eight guests. There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a queen-size bed in the second bedroom with access to an attached full bathroom, and two twin beds in the third bedroom featuring an en-suite full bathroom. There is also a bonus room, perfect for kids, with an adorable trundle bed that is home to the beloved stuffed crab pet! In a pinch, the living room couch features a pull-out bed. In the backyard, you'll find a secluded outdoor shower and towel hooks to rinse off the beach sand under the tropical sun.

Seaside Hideaway is located in a quaint neighborhood in Wilbur-by-the-Sea, one of the only areas that does not allow high-rise condos or hotels, making it a quiet option away from all the hustle and bustle of the nearby beaches. Nestled along the coast of Port Orange between Ponce Inlet and Daytona, with the Halifax River to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, your family can spend time exploring all that Ponce Inlet has to offer! Best known for being home to Florida's tallest lighthouse (the climb is totally doable, even for kids) and a marine science center with interactive exhibits, a boardwalk, observation tower, and nature trails, there is plenty for your family to enjoy...that is, if you can tear yourselves away from the beautiful beach!

The surrounding area also boasts excellent restaurants, and many bars and unique shops. Nearby Daytona Beach is world-famous for its beaches, the Daytona International Speedway, and snook fishing. In New Smyrna, the second oldest town in Florida, you'll discover quaint shops on historic Flagler Ave and friendly folks everywhere you go. New Smyrna is known as the Surfing Capital of Florida. Watch the locals, or join in the fun yourself! Port Orange is approximately 50 miles east of Orlando, situated approximately halfway between Daytona Beach (north) and New Smyrna Beach (south). You will be centrally located and can enjoy everything from Central Florida's amusement parks like Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios, to Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

About New Smyrna Beach

Located on Florida’s east central coast, New Smyrna Beach is a quiet seaside retreat at the southern mouth of Ponce de Leon Inlet. It is a small, historic city, and yet offers 13.2 miles of beach to enjoy. At only 55 miles northeast of Orlando, it serves as a favorite get-a-way destination for many Central Florida residents and has garnered significant notoriety as a surfing destination, often hosting American Surfing Professionals’ competitions. Surfers can bring their own equipment or rent from the numerous surf shops along the beach. New Smyrna Beach is the second oldest town in Florida and what many call “the old Florida of yesterday.” Quaint shops on historic Flagler Avenue and friendly folks are what New Smyrna Beach is all about. Through the years, the City of New Smyrna Beach has maintained tight controls on growth, resulting in a limited number of low-rise condominiums being constructed. The city has also held strict parameters on beach traffic which, in addition to protecting beach goers, simultaneously protects nesting sea turtles. It is a nesting ground for loggerhead sea turtles, and Florida’s loggerhead population is the largest in the nation.

What to do in New Smyrna Beach?

Enjoy the many activities that come with staying right on one of the finest sandy beaches in Florida. You’ll find water sports, beach combing, fishing, golf, shopping, and many local dining choices within walking distance. Once you stay here, you’ll want to come back again and again. We recommend that you call today to reserve your space as our condo books up very quickly. And, if you have never been to New Smyrna Beach in the off-season, find out for yourself why the locals feel it’s the best kept secret in town! New Smyrna Beach in the Fall and Winter is a great time to visit due to smaller crowds, beautiful weather, lower prices, and a beach that you’ll have practically all to yourself.

New Smyrna Beach Festivals

The downtown historic district, on Flagler Avenue, is the perfect location for a number of festivals throughout the year. The New Smyrna Beach Food Festival happens every April, offering a tasting of the beach’s best food and drink. The Cinco de Mayo celebration in May is a family fun time with live music and dancing in the streets. In August, the Shrimp and Seafood Festival begins, featuring tons of seafood as well as a display of unique arts and crafts. Jazz lovers come in the droves for the city’s annual Jazz Fest in September, featuring live music on street stages and in local venues around New Smyrna Beach.

New Smyrna Beach Museums and the Arts

The Atlantic Center for the Arts is the backbone of the lively New Smyrna Beach arts scene. The arts center has received great recognition for its eco-friendly design. The complex of buildings houses art exhibitions, performances, and is home to an artist-in-residence program. There are several art galleries in the downtown New Smyrna Beach area, such as Florida Galleria and TaDa Gallery which showcase works of local artists. The city is home to the Black Heritage Museum which has a collection of artifacts that date back to the 1920s.

New Smyrna Beach Parks and Recreation

Not only is there plenty to do on the beach, the New Smyrna Beach area includes many parks which offer camping, fishing, hiking, and other activities. Lake Ashby Park, a 64 acre waterfront park, offers many outdoor activities such as primitive camping, fishing, canoeing, horse trails, sport courts, and a boat ramp. Smyrna Dunes Park is 73 acres of land giving visitors of New Smyrna Beach the opportunity to view wildlife and sand dunes up close and personal. The park features elevated walkways, picnic areas, observation areas, and a pavilion.

Proximity to World Famous Attractions

Visitors of New Smyrna Beach return year after year because of the location, affordability, and wonderful family atmosphere. Disney World Resorts, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are all only a 90 minute drive away. Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Sea World are only 75 minutes away. And the famous Kennedy Space Center is only 45 minutes away.

Perfectly adorable and meticulously maintained beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family (myself, husband, 6 year old boy, and 4 year old girl, and in-laws) had the pleasure of vacationing at this cute home in Wilber by the Sea. We immediately breathed a sigh of relief the minute we walked in--it was adorable! The house is meticulously maintained by the owners, and it is evident they take great pride in making sure everything is exactly the way they would want a vacation home to be for themselves. Everything about the house is up-to-date, very clean, in excellent condition, and well decorated. Our family of six had more than enough room--everyone had space and privacy to relax and unwind between the four bedrooms, two indoor bathrooms and private outdoor shower, spacious porch, large dining area, and very comfortable family room. The location was just perfect...just a short walk to the beach made meal time, snack time, nap time, bathroom breaks, and "oops, I forgot this" so easy, especially with my children. And speaking of kids, the owners have many grandchildren of their own, and there was every toy we could ever want available for use (wagons, bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, etc.). Another neat thing about the location is that you can walk right across the street to Boondocks (a casual seafood restaurant) for lunch or dinner. The outdoor picnic tables made meals so easy and stress-free, and the food was surprisingly good! My kids got a kick out of feeding their leftover french fries to the hundreds of catfish that gather around the dock. We also really enjoyed exploring the area--there is so much to do with the Ponce Inlet, the historic lighthouse, the science center, boardwalk, and nature trails. I love to exercise, and really enjoyed biking on the beach and climbing the lighthouse. Even my four year old daughter finally learned to ride a bike without training wheels right there on the beach! It was a very special time for our family, and we would not hesitate to return to this cute beach house again!

Quaint and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and very clean. The house is located a couple of blocks from a "no-drive" beach, which means few people and no cars. That was perfect for my kids who were able to run around and ride bikes without the danger of getting hit by a car. The house includes bikes and surfboards which my family utilized. The walk to the beach was easy and returning was great because there is a private outdoor shower to get all the sand off. A bonus was the marina across the street with its outdoor restaurant. Will definitely be back!

All the comforts of home but at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our grandchildren sure enjoyed our stay at Seaside Hideaway, along with us! The garage is packed with beach toys, a wagon , bikes and boogie boards. It was an easy walk to the beach, even with little ones. After biking or jogging on the no drive beach , we enjoyed the enclosed outdoor shower to get the sand off and hang up our drippy clothes. If you want an unbelievable view of Ponce Inlet, climb the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse ( less than4 miles) and see the white sands and blue water of the inlet. Our dog loved the dog beach at the Inlet, just take a towel to dry him off after the swim! Loved the indoor laundry and undated appliances. A very comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood with causal dinning available across the street. Even though we did not visit the theme parks, they were about an hour and half away.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Seaside Hideaway! This charming home is just blocks from a non-driving beautiful beach between Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach. We loved the quiet neighborhood and the convenient location. Seaside Hideaway is spacious, comfortable, tidy and boasts upgraded features such as crown molding, bead board, and plantation shutters. The décor is fresh and coastal and truly made us feel away from it all. We appreciated the king size bed in the master, along with enough beds for our family of six. The parking was great as we had several cars coming and going all week and the garage is full of beach chairs and toys which we used the entire stay. Although we don’t have little ones, there is a pack and play and a high chair too. We enjoyed several backyard BBQ’s and loved having that area for our chocolate lab. We strolled the beach, collected shells, swam in the Gulf, shopped at nearby Flager Ave, went to the Spa at Riverview and ate at many yummy restaurants. We cannot wait to return to Seaside Hideaway!
