About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Just steps from beach!

This is also our 'personal' vacation home, not just a rental, and we want you to feel like family! When you're not here, we are.

We've tried to provide you with the best of everything we could think of.

No scrimping and No 'cheesy' beach furnishings.

We hope you'll relax and have a wonderful time. No need to

worry about those irritating Condo rules and mobs of people...and it's

wonderful to have your own Private Pool! (Newly installed heat-pump to keep pool warm during the cooler times!)

Come enjoy our tastefully decorated home and experience paradise.

Feel free to email with any questions or any Special Requests.

Absolutely No Smoking. Not even on the patio. If you are a smoker...please pass on this property. Sorry, but want our home to remain completely smoke-free.

About Diesta Gundacker

We have been married for "many" years and now have 3 wonderful adult children. New Smyrna Beach is within an hour from our personal residence and has always been a favorite destination of our family and friends. We enjoy caring for the home and knowing that we are close enough to offer the attention a vacation rental requires.

Diesta Gundacker purchased this house in 2005

Why Diesta Gundacker chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We have always loved traveling with our family. Our favorite memories were created during our special times spent together on vacations. Some amazing moments, and some that just make us laugh, but non the less, we were together and having fun!

Over the years, we've evaluated what we loved about certain properties and what we didn't. This home was purchased with the idea of putting together all of our favorite features and sharing them with others. We try to keep everything as updated as possible.

What makes this house unique

As hands-on homeowners, we truly care about your stay. We usually joke about how we keep the beach house so much better than we do our personal residence. It's our pleasure to make your vacation a memorable one, and hope that you will choose to return. (Most guests do...year after year)


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect! The house is welcoming, comfortable, and clean. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of natural light and a washer and dryer. The pool and back yard area are wonderful! The owners have thought of everything to make your vacation a pleasure. Plenty of games, books, and movies for all ages inside for entertainment if it is raining out. A garage full of bikes, scooters, chairs, toys, coolers, umbrellas....everything you need for a day at the beach. Highly recommend this property!

Dream vacation in New Smyrna

  • 5 of 5

We were enjoying a week's holiday in this house. We really enjoyed the house and the beaches of New Smyrna.

We want to highlight the excellent disposition of the owners. As we arrived one day later due to problems with the airline, Diesta suggested we to stay 1 more day without charge. This speaks of the human quality of the owners.

The house is incredibly equipped and everything working perfectly.

The beach is excellent, clean, spacious, quiet and a short walk from the house.

The perfect vacation with young children.

Again, Diesta and family, thank you very much for everything!

Perfect Everytime!

  • 5 of 5

Well, Here we go again.The best vacation home ever!

Are you are looking for the perfect vacation place? Well the Gundackers have it! You won't find a better place to stay at.

The house has everything you would ever need! It is literally the home away from home. The house is beautifully decorated and as clean as can be. Beautiful heated pool in the yard with BBQ gas grill and fire pit. Lounges for sunning also.The house is a very short walk to a beautiful beach. We have been vacationing at the beach house for 4 years now and will for many more years. This is our yearly vacation spot..The Gundackers are the best! If you have any problems (which you won't) or need anything they are there for you and are the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

Like I have said in my other reviews "Perfect".

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I couldn't have been happier to stay at Gundacker's in New Smyrma Beach! We highly recommend a vacation there. The house is as comfortable as your own home, and beautifully decorated. Every convenience is available, including needs for the beach and pool. The back yard offered us entertainment without leaving home! Pool, gas grill, patio seating, outdoor lighting, fire pit and more. There are bikes in the garage, the beach is a short walk distance, and shopping is a few miles away. This was a perfect choice for us, and we would definitely recommend Gundacker's!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this beach house Feb. 13 through 20 and loved it. Having never dealt w/ Vacation Rentals prior to this, I was not sure what to expect, but was in no way disappointed. The house was just as described...a fully stocked, clean, well maintained "home away from home" just perfect for a family vacation. Everything is provided...bikes, games, books, puzzles, linens and a heated pool which the grandkids absolutely loved. Great location w/ easy access to the beach, lots of restaurants and nearby attractions. Diesta is wonderful to deal with.

If you are looking into renting a vacation home in lieu of going the hotel/condo route, do yourself a favor and give this one serious consideration. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Diesta and Charlie.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this property during Spring Break 2015, and we had the best experience! My in-laws, my husband and I, and our 2 kids had plenty of room. Every room is tastefully decorated and efficiently laid-out. Everything we needed was provided -- including a snack waiting for us when we arrived, bikes to make the short ride to Flagler, along the beach, or down the bike path to the local park, puzzles and games for the kids, and movies and books for the adults. It's immaculate, but it has the feeling of home, since everything is provided. We loved having full well-maintained beach gear available, including umbrella, chairs, toys, towels, and cart. It's a short walk (less than a city block) to the beach. We also enjoyed having a pool, since the kids couldn't get in enough swimming! The owners are wonderful, and they've really thought of everything.
