Wonderfully relaxing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
Scott was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating! The house was clean and comfortable. Lots to do! Kayaks, fishing poles and bikes, great pool and relaxing hot tub! There is awesome fishing off the dock and amazing sunsets over the river. We even caught a snook! Close amenities and great neighborhood. We loved your getaway so much were returning to marry there in March 2015! Thank you Scott!

Did you hear that? So quite you can hear the waves breaking. This was a perfect stage for our wedding. Beautiful backyard, perfect for memorable wedding pictures - everyone was impressed.

If you want even more solitude and escape filled with the beach and wildlife, head down south about 10 min in the car or close to an hour bike ride and enjoy a state park. We went to the very end of the park and then took our bikes onto the beach and rode down to Cape Canaveral. We did not actually make it there because we left later in the day, but we saw bobcats, many birds, craps, a couple of beached sting rays (young ones - the body part was just bigger than my hand) that we rescued, dolphins, and some incredible conch shells. We never saw anyone the whole afternoon and I don't think any human had been down that far due to all the incredible shells that were lying on the beach.

Scott is very accommodating. He is full of tips and gets on things right away. He really wants you to have a good time.

You have bikes, fishing rods, pool toys, towels, just about everything - if it had kayaks it would be perfection ;)

His maid even put some thoughtful flowers out for my wife and a congratulation sign.

The kitchen had just about everything you need if you in to cooking, which we are.

I would definitely return...thanks, Scott.

Paradise Indeed!

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family traveled cross country to "great grandpa's" birthday. Since we could only bring a limited amount of baby stuff on the plane we needed to coordinate how to get borrowed high chairs etc to the house. Scott was extremely accommodating in allowing my sister-in-law to bring and store a car full several days before we arrived. We could tell that Scott was sharing his piece of paradise with visitors. He was prompt in answering questions, including the details for accommodating 6 adults and 3 babies age 2 and under.

The pool was wonderful--the water jets made the kids dance with glee. We went to the beach just down the road, where there is a large parking area if the walk was a little much for the 2 yr old.

The only issue in the facility was a quirky dishwasher, but we were well served by Scott and his maintenance person by phone with ways to get it running smoothly.

Getting 9 around the dining table was a little tight, but most of the time several were more comfortable just being on laps. The kitchen was well equipped and the barbeque outside was great. The floor plan is very open, which did present some problems in finding ways to put crying infants behind closed doors--only the three bedrooms have doors.

We had a little trouble jockeying three cars in the driveway, but parking on the street in front solved that problem.

If we had any regrets it would be that we six adults couldn't have had some time there without kids. But then it wouldn't have been the wonderful family vacation that it was.

One caution if you are not from Florida or similar environs. The no-see-ums got us pretty bad. We probably would have researched appropriate bug repellents ahead of time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the input. I'm always trying to improve my home for future renters. I bought the pack-n-play for kids because I know It's a pain to bring so much on the plane or vehicle. My dishwasher is computerized and has a reset button that will work after flipping breaker. I have just printed a new instruction manual for all. Any problems for someone who is not handy I expect a call to maintenance or myself immediately so we can resolve the problem, and in this case we did. The dinning room is for 6 people and I'm glad you mentioned that, I forgot I had There are six bar stools at the kitchen which I love for entertaining and another bar next to that with 3 more that are all open in the living room. The coffee table in front of the leather sectional that folds up and will allow 3-4 kids or adults to eat at while watching the 60" sony, which is a new addition. That will allow 12 people to eat in the same room watching tv, or 6 adults in the dinning room. I do have 2 tables out back and a bar that seats six for outdoor BBQ. I only allow 12 people which this should be great to have the hole family together whether your inside or out. I have 5 tiki torches that I fill w/ citronella and will light them as the sun goes down along w/ a mosquito magnet. The mosquito magnet has a propane tank that last about 25 days and might have been out or it needed to be purged. I love this unit and try to have my maintenance man check this before every renter. It covers a half acre and runs 24-7. It put's out carbon dioxide which is what draws mosquito's and no-see-ems around the unit and the vacuum sucks them in. Great invention, but I would not hang around it. It's set way back in the corner by the pond and waterfall because that's where they love to breed. This is Florida and you should never put on perfume oils,lotions, this will attract them to you.Use different shampoos and conditioners that are natural ingredients and not foo-foo smells. You can also not shower for 3 days and they will leave you alone, but please don't sleep in the beds,use the hammock out back,lol,. I got home yesterday and got the magnet working and I'm out by the pool and haven't had 1 bite. Wish you would of called I would of taken care of it. You can park 2 cars in garage if you move the bikes,most will do 1 and 4 in the driveway. The right of way on grass is fine for 2 more. I like getting blocked in so someone else has to make the beer run.Hope you and your family will visit again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Scott's home was perfect for our family of ten. The kids went from the pool to the beach which was close enough for us to enjoy a nice walk. Scott was attentive to our needs. The home had plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, etc. It is open and airy so we did not feel like we were on top of each other. Nice restaurants, grocery shopping and the quaint town of NSB was enjoyable. I recommend it highly and the price is right in comparison to other rental homes.

Owner's Response: Hello Clare,

I am very glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay. I appreciate you taking the time to post a review about my home. I look forward to renting one of your cabins some time in the fall. Hope all is well, and thank you for the blender. It came in handy this weekend.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
Just want to thank Scott for letting us enjoy his home. We had a great time with the private pool and access to fishing. It was just what we needed to recharge us to get back to our daily living. Everything is just how it's explained. He checked on us to make sure we arrived safely and we also let him know when we made it back home. Hoping to spend many more summers at his "Private Paradise" when we can. Thanks Again Scott.....Jerry, Lisa, Briana and Larissa!

Great House at New Smyrna Beach

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this house in July and had a wonderful time! We spent a lot of time in the private pool and it was just a short walk or drive to the beach. There is a parking lot across from the beach, just around the corner from this house, with plenty of parking. New Smyrna Beach is a great family beach.

We've been going there for 30 years and we are worn out with all the rules at the condos. We loved the outside bar with fridge and TV and the outdoor sound system was a big hit! There was plenty of sleeping space and the house has a really open feel to it.
