July 24, 2019 – “Our family absolutely loved this condo! First, the location was perfect. We were a few miles from the downtown, so we never got the feeling that we were in a crowded tourist town. There were several great restaurants, grocery stores, and ice cream shops just a quick drive away. Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet, The Canaveral National Seashore, and the Kennedy Space Center all made for fun, close getaways for us. The condo itself was more than what we could have asked for. The full kitchen had everything we needed to prepare for meals when we wanted to stay in. We had plenty of space to eat at the table and relax on the couches after a long day. The bedrooms were large and comfortable, each with its own full bathroom. The decor of the entire condo really captured the beach life — a constant reminder of why we love Florida. When we wanted to step out, we loved sitting on the condo’s second floor balcony with beautiful views. The kids had fun trying to spot dolphins and watching the waves crash in. The condo is fully stocked. Anything we needed for the pool and beach was provided: chairs, towels, beach tent, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys…the list goes on. The pool is simply incredible. Large enough that it NEVER felt crowded, and it always at a PERFECT temperature. We spent HOURS lounging poolside, watching our kids splash around. The reason we came here, though, was the beach. Walk down a flight of stairs from the room, and you have a short walk to the sand. Even on the weekend, we never had the sense of an overcrowded beach that you’ll see at some of the more touristy oceanside towns. We made so many memories playing in the ocean, making sandcastles, collecting shells, and just sitting in the beach chairs and letting the waves creep in on our toes. We love New Smyrna beach for everything this town and beach offered – but mostly because we were lucky enough to stay in this wonderful condo.”
