A Fisherman's Dream! Lg Pool, Hot Tub, New Dock, a Must See!
New Smyrna Beach
Welcome to paradise! New Smyrna is where the locals go to soak up some sun, breathe in the fresh salty air, and enjoy sunsets on the white sandy beaches. This quaint bungalow home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the ocean …
Stroke of genius on my part for finding this gem! Just returned from a month long stay at this spot and now I'm ready to take on the world. So restful, so inviting! Had all the extended family there one day for the family reunion and they all were remarking about what a perfect vacation getaway house it really was. Nice pool, hot tub, then the really nice boathouse over the canal...gave a whole new dimension to the property and this is where the cool kids hung out. Beautiful grounds, lots of birdlife, really a place you can get into your vacation mode quickly so you don't waste any precious time!!
We arrived late at night and our first feeling entering the house was like somebody just took their bag and left the day before..... The kitchen cupboards were so full of groceries etc. that we did not have any space for our own bought groceries. We told Laurie about a couple of things in the kitchen which we saw the first night, but when the cleaning lady came there were so many things and places that had to be cleaned that we just wanted to leave. We also sent Laurie pictures of the dirt, but she could explain everything ("This is a beach house"....) and did not see the problem - we were difficult and could have asked the cleaning lady to fix it...... The problem is that the property is in a poor condition regarding maintainance and cleanliness and it would be neccessary with a weeks cleaning, and probably more to paint and repair everything that needs to be done, and is it fair for hollidayguests to use their holliday to get a clean place to stay?? Shouldn't this be done before guests arrive? The BBQ was so dirty and could not have been cleaned for months! As we asked the cleaninglady reg. the outside she said that they do not clean the BBQ. We got half of the rent back from Laurie, but she let us understand that this was only her kindness and nothing we were intitle to have and she lost a weeks rent and this was very inconvenient for her... I must say after travelling half the world it was very inconvenient for us too, as three days of our holiday was spent on hazzeling with this house and finding a new place to stay. This was not what we had planned!!!!
What also not mentioned in the listing is that one bedrooom is in the garage. None of our children wanted to stay there, and the sofabed was not made for anyone to stay there either.
We have been renting homes/houses in the US for several years in all parts of the country and this is the worst we have experienced. We have always been happy and have never left a home before we had to. Too bad the owners of this house doesn't see the necessity of the things we pointed out. We took over 30 pictures of the dirt everywhere and this is not a home we would recommend to anyone in this condition. What also surprises us is the good reviews this house has as this is absolutely not accurate and makes us wonder who wrote them.....
We had the pleasure of spending our vacation at this beautiful home and were completely thrilled with the experience! As described, it is in a perfect location! Laurie & Larry were absolutely wonderful!! Their home has everything you need and then some...Our 4 y.o. grandson caught his first fish from the dock and was sooo excited. We relaxed in the huge pool, enjoyed the hot tub and of course spent our days soaking in the sun on New Smyrna's awesome beach. This is the perfect vacation home for everyone. We're hoping to return again next year. Thanks again Laurie & Larry :)
All in all we were very happy with the house and the amenities. The owners were very helpful with reserving the house and answering any questions. The house is in a great location, not crowded, easy to get to the beach. The pool is "big" and we enjoyed swimming in the afternoons and evenings. The view is great and relaxing. Our advice is to fish in early mornings or you will get eat up with the bugs at night.
The house was clean and the property was kept nice. The only thing I would suggest is to clean up the area where the bikes are kept and to add a few more pots and pans. We enjoyed buying fresh seafood and cooking instead of having to get dressed for dinner. It was nice to eat outside by the pool.
We would recommend this property for families with children. We also recommend the seafood market and restaurant, Oceans Seafood.
This house was everything and more the owners promised. The pictures do not do it justice. The cupboards and closets were full with all the needed amenities for a comfortable and easy stay. There are endless recreational activities available without even leaving the yard. You can fish from the dock (we caught a couple sea trout), canoe down the river and canals, swim in the large crystal blue pool, or enjoy the sunset and jumping fish in the canal from the hot tub. My kids spent hours chasing small lizards and crabs around the yard. The beach is a 2 minute drive or an easy 10 minute walk. The owners provide beach toys, coolers, beach blankets and umbrellas so all you have to do is enjoy yourself. 5-10 minute drive to the shops and restaurants on Flagler Avenue. A great home with great owners. Thanks from the whole family!!!!
We enjoyed a week at this rental and it was just perfect. Everything we needed was there, and the location was very convenient. There was great fishing to be had, and we spent many an hour on the dock fishing and watching birds. (We left a rod too--you might plan on bringing a few.) We took the canoe out a few times and there are limitless waterways to explore. The beach is 2 minutes away and is just beautiful.
The house itself is very comfortable. It's completely quiet at night so we all slept very soundly.
Larry and Lori were pleasant and great to interact with, and we have no complaints at all. We would definitely recommend this property, and would love to return to spend more time there.
The owners were wonderful answering our questions and helping us to plan our fishing excursion. New Smyrna was a beautiful, quaint town, with a gorgeous beach. Our family rented this house for the Christmas holiday - the location of the home was great, close to the beach, close to town and close to fishing. However....the pool was great, but the heater was very loud, making it difficult to leave the patio doors open. The master bedroom was too small for a king sized bed. The bed was up against the wall and the inside person had to crawl over a large wooden foot board to get out of the bed or crawl over the person next to them On the other side of the bed, there was a little over 12 inches of floor space between the dresser and the king sized bed. The bedroom was also dimly lit, making it impossible to read in bed. The TV was in the closet, making the useable closet space pretty small. The kitchen was not well equipped - there were only small frying pans - not large enough to make pancakes and bacon for breakfast. There was only one pot to cook dinner with. Also, the microwave is installed in the wall above the stove - if you are cooking on the stove top and have to use the microwave at the same time - you risk burning your arms. The doors on both refrigerators did not close tightly unless you pushed on them. One refrigerator did not have handles on it. There were enough dishes for five, therefore we ran out of dishes each day after breakfast. The bath towels were old, worn and mismatched.
The house is in a great location - with some renovations and TLC it could be a great vacation bungalow.
This home had everything you needed. The pool was the perfect temperature, great toys were provided and it was great for a 5 year old kid and adults. The hot tub was nice. The fishing dock was great. It was comfortable and we caught many fishes. The canoe was fun to ride and the river was nice. The neighborhood was quite and everyone we ran into was so polite.
Laurie was great. Very helpful via email.
The house was comfortable. A lot of space to play and hang out. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked.
The house was great and it was better than we hoped for.
We definitely recommend this house.
I don't know where to begin about how fantastic this rental home is - the view out the back is just unbelievable - a gorgeous inlet of the Indian River ( where fish Really are jumping All the time - huge fish - I have never fished before in my life, and the first time, just with some string and bait I got a bite every single time I dropped it in the water! And the dock is terrific) - beyond the inlet is a vista of little channels and tropical islands, where you see egrets landing and over which the sun sets every night - sometimes looked like Africa, sometimes like an dreamy Asian somewhere...The Pool is Fabulous - beautiful blue, with water shadows dancing along the wall of house and geckos running up the screens during the day, and at night moon and stars above. The colors of the house make you feel like you are in the Bahamas - the owners just have wonderful taste, and there are so many beautiful touches that just make you feel Happy. Lastly, I just must note how Amazing the the owners of this house are - Larry and Laurie - they are completely available to you for any questions,etc. you might have and are just beyond friendly - I could not have hoped for a better experience, and am planning/ hoping on renting this house again.
