Overview

About the property

Beachfront Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Our oceanfront condo is ideal! You wake in a comfy bed to the gorgeous sunrises over the beach. If you choose, it is a short walk to Flagler Avenue coffee shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, and boutique shopping finds. Back at the condo, we have two full bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom. We also love our spacious balcony for coffee and stunning sunrises, or a shady lunch or dinner with the ocean below. The mornings are frequently greeted by passing dolphins, and at dusk, the beautiful Brown Pelicans wing their way back to their roost.

Our oceanfront condo surrounds you with lovely but comfortable furnishings. Each bedroom has premium queen-sized bedding, the sofa and chairs have down-filled cushions and the sofa converts to a double bed with sofa-mattress (plus an air-pillow-top for added comfort). The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances and equipment needed for meals, your own happy hours, and whatever else you might need. The condo has large windows and multiple sliding glass door, and an open-air configuration that allows you to enjoy the beauty of the ocean from almost any spot within, including the master bedroom, the kitchen, dining area or living room. The spacious master bedroom, on one side faces the Atlantic Ocean and has sliding glass doors to the balcony, as well as a private master bath, with double pocket doors to the enlarged bathroom and walk-in shower. The large guest bedroom enjoys the privacy of its own bathroom, including a tub and shower. Everything was remodeled - from the kitchen, its cabinets and appliances, to redesigned and decorated bathrooms, dining and living areas, and home furnishings.

The healing influence of the sun, the peace (and power) of the ocean, and the discriminating comforts of our beachfront condominium home, all invite you here. For the continued enjoyment of family and guests, we are a NO SMOKING condo and we can accommodate no more than 6 people. (Although we love pets, our building does not permit them, so furry or feather friends must be left at home or in care while you vacation. if you travel with pets, there are local accommodations available to you as well.)

About Rory and Cindy Ryan

We are husband and wife, both lawyers, and both relocated to Florida (years ago) from other parts of the country. My husband is originally from the mid-west (Central Illinois) and I am from New England (Massachusetts and Connecticut). We have one young child still at home; two others are older and on their own. We all love the sound of the ocean and the peacefulness of uncrowded New Smyrna Beach.

Rory and Cindy Ryan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rory and Cindy Ryan chose New Smyrna Beach

When we searched for a beach property, we most loved the size and shape of the balcony and condo's interior lay-out. We found the balcony unusually large compared to other condos of this size, and we liked the shape and angle of the balcony and building (you look straight out to the ocean but can also see north, up the beach). We also LOVE our proximity to Flagler Avenue, whether walking or bicycling.

What makes this condo unique

Beach front but Close proximity to Flagler Avenue.

Great Beach Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nice relaxing atmosphere with great views of ocean and pool. Balcony is shaded so it is not too hot and has nice breezes. Pool is warm and clean. Walk to downtown restaurants and shops. Very comfortable condo and clean. Owners were very accommodating. Would like to stay again.

A perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at the beach in this lovely condo, and we couldn't be happier with the whole experience. The condo was very clean, the new floors were great, and that rug in the living room is incredible, like "Get Him to the Greek" stroke the furry wall awesome. The views from the balcony and the master bedroom are breathtaking, waking up and looking down the coast from your bed is an experience I've never had and I must say it was more than beautiful. Also, this place has everything you will need, and then some, just show up, and you will be good. We loved this place so much, that we will be back for sure. Oh yea, be sure and check out the dolphins in the morning from the balcony, a really nice way to start the day.

Sun-sational

  • 5 of 5

A kitchen better equipped than mine at home! Beautiful ocean views coming through the windows and doors! My favorite colors of blue and yellow made the condo cheery and inviting. Having two bikes was a bonus for us and we drove on the beach and around the quiet streets of New Smyrna Beach. The owners responded to all of our questions and were very accomodating. A month wasn't long enough. New Smyrna Beach is one of the friendliest towns we have visited and the condo was close to restaurants, shopping and galleries. The Golden Arms is clean and well maintained and landscaped and the staff was very helpful. Another nice feature was having a garage. We hope to come back to this little corner of Paradise.
