About Edward and Marilyn Bibbee, Owners and Managers of (3) Point East Condos
My husband and I are both semi retired and live in a gated golf community in New Smyrna Beach. We lived on beachside for 14 years and decided to build a home on the mainland after we retired. We own three condos at this same beautiful ocean front resort all located on the top 3rd floor. We really enjoy staying active and we can't play golf every day, so we decided to get into the vacation rental business and we really enjoy it. It's like owning a Bed & Breakfast, but guests make their own bed and cook their own breakfast! We have built up the business with many return and referral guests. Families are our specialty, and we enjoy seeing our return guests during the summer. I also cater to little ones with highchairs, pack and plays, bed rails and safety gates, plus a collection of teddy bears to cheer them up after a long journey in a car or plane or both. The children are always fun and they love all the goodies in the front closet. Lots of buggie boards, beach toys and gear, and noodles for the pool. We also have beach chairs, beach umbrella and some sports equipment for the beautiful ocean front park next door. Each year we are able to make improvements to our property and hope to start remodeling the kitchens and bathrooms soon, but even though they are the original cabinetry, they are clean and very functional and that's all that seems to matter to our guests. I buy good quality linens and bedding plus extra comfortable pillow top beds. I offer two FULL SIZE beds in guest bedroom so everybody gets a comfortable bed when they stay at our properties. I love to cook, so I make sure my kitchens are well stocked for families on a budget with plenty of good quality pots and pans, utensils, dishes, glasses including wine, champagne, and martini glasses for happy hour. Also many small appliances including a coffee grinder, crock pot, juicer, coffee maker, toaster, hand mixer, electric can opener, blender, and small food processor/choppe

Why Edward and Marilyn Bibbee, Owners and Managers of (3) Point East Condos chose Point East
Point East Ocean Front Resort is very well managed and maintained. The best thing about Point East is it's located in the preferred non-driving beach zone for family fun and safety. My guests love walking on a car free beach. The resort has a secure private gate to the beach so trespassers can't come up from the beach and use our facilities. The resort is centrally located and convenient to restaurants and shopping. But it's also in a more residential area so it doesn't have a commercial feel to the area. We have two down towns: one on the mainland (Canal Street) and one on beach side (Flagler Avenue), so the resort is two miles away from those more busy tourist areas. Another nice point about this location is a full time lifeguard next door at the ocean front park. The park has covered picnic tables, charcoal grills, restrooms, outdoor showers, a playground, basketball and handball courts. My families love having a place for their children to enjoy. And my older guests love the convenience of the park for their private parties. IMPORTANT: Please note a parking permit is required to park inside the 27th Avenue Ocean Front Park, so just walk over to avoid having to pay the fee. New Smyrna Beach is the closest beach to Orlando and Central Florida's attraction. Disney World has designated New Smyrna Beach as "Disney's Beach". Day trips are an easy drive, with Orlando just one hour away. You can visit Disney World,Sea World, EPCOT, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona International Speedway, St. Augustine(the oldest city in the USA), and much more! They are all easy "day trips" from New Smyrna Beach. You can easily drive to Central Florida attractions for the whole day, and return to the beach in time to see the sun set. New Smyrna Beach is also a "Natural Destination" for anyone who wants to discover the real Florida. You can observe close views of dolphins, manatees, ospreys and an abundance of wildlife.
What makes this Condo unique
We love having 3 condos at the same resort. Each condo has cable TV in living room and both bedrooms, plus personal Wi-Fi throughout. We are able to offer our guests enough room for family reunions, small weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events where they need extra rooms. The condos also come in handy when our own family comes visiting from California or elsewhere. They never complain about being put up in an ocean front condo instead of having to pile in with us at our home. That way we all get a vacation and have more time to enjoy each other's company. We like to spend a weekend at the beach once in a while ourselves in the off season. New Smyrna Beach has been the best place we have ever lived and we would never consider living elsewhere. We love to travel and schedule a nice trip for ourselves after Labor Day when business slows down, but it's always so great to get back to New Smyrna Beach. We love it here and we invested here, and it's been a success story for us. We are just an hour from Orlando if we need a big city. We are just 20 minutes from Daytona with a nice mall and other big box shopping so we are perfectly situated with the beach and our condos just 15 minutes away from our home. LIFE IS GOOD! Canaveral National Seashore is on southern end of New Smyrna Beach ch includes ocean, beach, dune, hammock, lagoon, salt marsh, and pine flatland habitats. Endangered species include, but are not limited to, loggerhead, green and leatherback sea turtles, West Indian Manatee, Southern bald eagle, wood stork, peregrine falcon, eastern indigo snake, and Florida scrub jay. Be sure to visit Smyrna Dunes at the north end of the island. It's a raised deck for two miles of scenic dunes and ocean. Great walking area. Day pass available. Its at the Inlet that borders the south side of Ponce de Leon Inlet before sweeping around to follow the Atlantic Ocean. All kinds of shorebirds! Warblers and migrant songbirds in the woods!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Exactly as Listed!
Marilyn was always responsive and during one issue that was out of her control, she still made it right! Perfect location; close to lots of great restaurants, local activities and just a short drive to Daytona, Port Orange, Cocoa Beach and Orlando. The description of the room was exactly spot on as it is listed. Property of the complex was always clean and very well taken care of, including the pool! Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again in the future. Our family really enjoyed our week of vacation!!
Will definitely come back!
My wife and I stayed here for a wonderful week at the beach and loved it! The condo was exactly as advertised. It's right on the beach, in a section where cars are not allowed on the beach. That tends to make the beachfront less crowded. Our third floor location gave us privacy and a very nice view. The condo itself was clean, nicely furnished, very comfortable, and had everything that we needed- even "stuff" for the beach. The owners are delightful & available if needed-got a new blender to us by happy hour when the original one broke!
Pointeast Ocean Front Condo is located in the non-driving beach zone. It's so popular, I bought two more condos there and now have three that you can choose from. This is my best property since the balcony faces due east for an ocean front view. My other two are popular with snowbirds because my balconies face south for warm southern exposure in the winter months. They are all 2BD/2BA and are same size and bed configuration. The only difference is my unique decorating themes. This is my #312 Ocean Sunrise Suite, my other two are #304 Tranquility Suite and #309 Tropical Suite. We enjoy our guests and our little vacation rental business so much. Hurry back!
We had a great time at the condo and on the beach. The location was PERFECT! And having a bedroom with two full beds was a bonus for our toddlers so they didn't fall off. Only thing I would change is bringing a nanny for the kids next time, ha!
It’s sad that west Florida has issues with algae and red tide. As far as I know it has never made it to the east coast. Our beaches and rivers are pristine clean and ready for my guests ‘ enjoyment.
The condo at Point East was very good with all the amenities included.
Marilyn was communicative before and during our stay to make it the most enjoyable vacation.
We will come back with friends.
Some guests are pretty independent and don’t require much attention. I respect their privacy, but still like to text some information that I think will be helpful. Texting is a quick and easy way to communicate and has added advantage since guest can refer back to it as needed. Especially if they are new to this area. I have maps and a great guest book to quickly get them acquainted with our beautiful island community.
A wonderful beautiful beachfront play to stay.
Like a home away from home - if you’re lucky enough to have your home on the beach. Marilyn’s condo is beautifully kept and just steps away from a gorgeous ocean and high end pool. We will be returning.
Pointeast Ocean Front Condominium completed a $6 Million total exterior of the building and is in great shape. New landscaping is almost completed. It was over two years and my guests stayed away due to the construction, but now they are coming back in full force. If you are planning a return, you need to book early (very early) to get the dates you want. I have a 30 day cancellation policy with refund, so there is little risk involved in booking even a year ahead.
Fantastic view of the ocean, and super cute space! Quiet and peaceful. Marilyn has gone the extra mile to make sure her guests are comfortable, and the unit is so well stocked. What a great day at the beach with all the equipment available to utilize! Highly recommend!
I do my very best to offer a real home atmosphere with all the extras. Guests don't like to go out to eat every day so they can easily fix a meal in my well stocked kitchen. This is my best condo with a beautiful ocean front view the minute you walk in the front door. It's farthest from the pool so it's quiet and restful. I know most guests are driving or flying down so they won't have room for beach toys and equipment for the pool and the ocean, so I provide everything including beach chairs, umbrella, etc. Also some sports equipment for the basketball and handball courts at the ocean front park nearby. The park has covered picnic tables, charcoal grills and a new playground will be ready this spring. There's a lifeguard and the beach is car-free. Perfect place for family fun and safety.
Our intercoastal waterway offers fishing, boating, kayaking, ECHO tourism, dinner cruises and beautiful sunsets. Have happy hour at Riverview Grill on the lido deck and watch dolpins fishing in the river at sunset. See manatees and dolphin hanging out in a lagoon a few miles south of the condo. We have a live performance Little Theater in town, bowling alley, library, and great shopping areas. Our downtown Canal Street has antique stores, art galleries plus a great variety of restaurants for seafood and other specialties. There are over 30 golf courses in and around our area. Daytona is just 20 minutes away with the convention center, Daytona Speedway, and Peabody Auditorium with performances and shows. New Smyrna Beach is just 1-1/2 hour from Orlando and all Central Florida Attractions.
New Smyrna Beach Florida is:
A Natural Destination for vacationers and
the Best Kept Secret of Central Florida. New Smyrna Beach Florida is Disneyworld's 'Designated Beach' and the closest beach to Central Florida. New Smyrna Beach Florida has been voted: #1 BEST FLORIDA BEACH for eight year running by readers of our Orlando Sentinel.

New Smyrna Beach is the best island paradise that Florida has to offer. It's Pure and Real.
