Our thoughts and prayers go out to our beautiful Florida Keyes, South and West coast of Florida after the destruction of Irma. New Smyrna Beach has been spared and we are open for business. Book early for next spring and summer.
Please be advised that I normally only rent by the week or two from February through summer. But I will rent by the month for the following months: October thru January.
Tropical Suite 2BD/2BA ocean view condo is on the top 3rd floor right near the elevator. It has a king size pillow top bed in the master suite (with bathroom in suite), and TWO FULL SIZE beds in the guest bedroom with a bathroom in the hallway next to it. This condo is beautifully decorated with energizing tropical colors and lots of flare. My living room has a queen sleeper sofa plus two recliners for total comfort. My kitchen is well stocked for family meal planning and has a pass thru bar to the dining area which seats six guests.
The resort has two laundry rooms on each floor with modern equipment and updated granite folding table, etc. The large pool is seasonally heated plus there's a kiddie pool for my little guests. The resort also offers shuffleboard, covered pavilion and gas grille for use through the on site managers office. The resort is ocean front with a security gate down to the beach just steps away. It's also located close to shopping and restaurants and on the bus line if you want to just hop a bus to get around, but a car is recommended. Plenty of ECHO tourism with a beautiful Inter-coastal waterway plus ocean. Watch sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening. This great beach town is an island paradise with friendly people and it's very family oriented. But there's plenty of night life and entertainment on Flagler and Canal Street, which are down town areas, one on the island and one on the mainland. Do the LOOP and enjoy both with two bridges to the island.
