June 25, 2016- We have stayed at Sea Coast Gardens several times (booked through Great Ocean Condos). This complex is our favorite in New Smyrna. We love the large pools & no parking on the beach. We always choose our units very carefully because we love the updated look & this condo does not disappoint. The owners have done a gorgeous job renovating this property! They opened up the kitchen and it’s much more spacious! They also took out a closet to make the 2nd bedroom bigger. We LOVE the bunk beds in this unit. We also really appreciated the new mattress in the master. Very firm & comfortable. The bunk beds & kitchen are actually what made us switch from our other favorite unit. The views are side views but definitely great! I loved being on the 2nd floor so it’s easier to use the stairs over the elevator. The only real complain was the tv. It has an app where you can sign in so you can watch your own netflix or amazon or whatever. The app is super slow and we never got it to work. We haven’t had this issue in other condos we’ve rented. We fly in from Texas so we aren’t able to bring any extras with us. I would rent this condo again in a minute. There are a few things I wish this unit did have: a blender (frozen drinks at the beach!!), non stick pans for scrambled eggs in the morning, a sun (shade) umbrella for the beach, and beach chairs that have more than lay down or sit straight up positions. These are definitely nit picky things. But we rent a lot in Sea Coast and find these items to be standard. Also, if you are local & can bring your own, I thought this would be helpful for you to know what to bring with you. Definitely rent this unit! You will not regret it.
