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 New Smyrna Beach

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)

Fabulous Holiday Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to the wonderful Gundacker's family beach house. Again we were not disappointed. The house is beautifully presented & the Gundacker's hospitality is ever present. From the tasteful interior design, all bed linen/towels provided to a welcome tray of goodies, cooled drinks in the fridge & a lovely welcome card.

Plus everything you could ever need for the pool & trips out to the beach. Beach towels included!!

Bonus too are the beach bikes you are able to use, wonderful feeling riding down the beach with the sun shining.

Pool is fabulous, perfect size, sun all day & the pool is cleaned weekly.

Honestly could not fault this wonderful house & thank the Gundacker's for allowing us to stay.

Here's to our 2019 visit!!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at this very beautiful and most accommodating home. It is tastefully and comfortably furnished, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare any meal, bedrooms and bathrooms have plenty of linens and towels (even beach and pool towels), the outdoor gas grill is ready to use, and the pool is very nice. The garage is stocked with bicycles, scooters, pool floats and toys for any age, beach games, sand toys and buckets, beach chairs, coolers.....literally anything you could ever need for a day at the beach or pool. Staying in for the day or evening? No problem! There is a TV and DVD player in every bedroom and in the living room, a Wii game system with games, and a library of books, games, and movies for you to enjoy. All you have to bring with you is your clothes, then make a grocery run and you are set for a great vacation week!

Our stay was great as always at the Gundacker Beach House.

This was our 5th stay there and we will be back every year!

The house is the cleanest and most equipped house you will ever stay at.

The owners are the best and will do anything to make sure your stay is great. We have been coming back every year since our first stay and plan on continuing to do so for many years to come. If you want a perfect place to vacation Look no further this is it!

Thank you Diesta for another perfect vacation and we will see you next year!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've rented 4 different homes in FL through VRBO, and this was my favorite. The layout is perfect for a family. I can be in the kitchen, and still monitoring what's going on in the pool. The screened porch near the pool with the patio set was perfect for sipping coffee in the mornings while the kids swam.

The walk to the beach is super short, and there are tons of beach chairs, toys, bikes, scooters, etc.

Homeowners are super responsive and helpful.

I'd stay again in a heartbeat!

Swimming, surfing, fishing, biking and my favorite...early morning

and/or afternoon walks on the beach!

Close to Universal Studios, Disney, and Sea World (about 1.5 hrs),

But really, who wants to leave the sun and sand?!

You will LOVE it here....
