House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Heated Private Pool, Steps to the beach
Welcome to our piece of paradise. My wife and I love spending time in New Smyrna Beach with our 3 boys. When are are not in Florida, we live in Pittsburgh, PA. We are proud supporters of the Little Pink Houses of Hope charity that provides breast cancer patients and their families a retreat from the burden of cancer, at least for a week. We are honored to have been able to share our home with this organization for their New Smyrna Beach retreat for 3 years.
Mark purchased this House in 2010
Why Mark chose New Smyrna Beach
This house is a perfect getaway for our family. It is so close to the beach as well as the bike trails near the intercoastal. The screened in pool is so relaxing.
What makes this House unique
We love that this house is 2 stories - it really adds to the spacious feel of the house. The bedrooms are off of hallways, upstairs and down, so you don't get the feeling that you are right on top of everyone, especially if you are the one that stays up late or gets up early.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Amazing beach vacation spot
This is one of the best vacation homes you will ever stay at. The house is warm and inviting, location is great for the price and the owners are very easy to work with.
We loved our time here and wish we didn't have to leave
Everything you want in a house AND close to beach!
Place is in good shape. Pool is smaller than it looks in the pictures, but it is large enough! There are lots of beach toys available for you to borrow in the garage, so don't worry about bringing those. There are also several bikes. I would suggest you bring your own bike helmets (and locks) and enjoy a ride on the beach. We were surprised that people are allowed to drive on the beach in the area. There were no concerns about it, but we were always wondering if we should take the short two block walk, or drive. Oh the laziness of being on vacation! Wi-fi in the house works well. We did reset it once, but that was easy to do from the "server room". We had exceptional weather, so did not get a chance to discover the books in the children's bedroom or the fantastic boardgames until we were doing a "last check" as we were packing up. Also, the weather was a little cool still to see the Manatees just down the road, but we hope to catch them another time and did get a chance to watch the dolphins frolic. All in all, a fantastic, relaxing stay. THANK YOU!
The home was wonderful! Mark were awesome!
This was our first time to FL. and Mark made our stay
wonderful! He is a very special person whom l thought
was a great landlord. The home is full of light and all
the furniture was up to date and very comfy. The kitchen
was a dream come, everything you could ever want. He
even had play things for the beach as well as bikes. The
pool was very nice, but when we were there it was to
cold to use. We went to the beach a lot and that was
just across the street or you could drive just a block to
enter the beach by car and a lovely park. Our needs
were fully met and then some.
Love this house:)
We love returning to this house every year. The house is so spacious with everything we need for our vacation. The house is clean and tastefully decorated, and the pool is very inviting and, with the screened enclosure, we don’t have to worry about the insects. The beach and the intra-coastal are just a short walk away. New Smyrna Beach is so charming and laid back; we always find a new place to explore and new restaurants to try. Looking forward to next years’ vacation!
Not so gorgeous
We have been renting homes and condos for mote than 20 years and have never rented a property in such poor condition. Pulling into the drive and immediately noticing holes in the window screens and overgrown shrubs gave us an indication of what we would find .
First, I have to say while the property has potential to be lovely, it obviously is not properly maintained. Entering the living room, there was popcorn visible on the carpet and under the sofa. Hairpins could be seen on the floor so this floor had not been cleaned! There were multiple slats missing from the vertical blinds in the sunroom and master. The pool deck was black with mildew and the pool was filled with debris. The screen enclosing the pool was covered with large webs WITH large spiders! The pool furniture is rusted to the point of being a safety issue.Expecting that the rest of the house would be more of the same, we moved to the bedrooms. Pulling back the cover on the master bed revealed black HAIRS! We immediately removed the sheets and began to wash all of the sheets in the house. Going upstairs was more of the same. Broken ceiling fan in the loft bedroom (how is a house rented with only 3 of 4 blades on a fan), broken toliet seat in the upstairs bathroom and when flushed, the toliet would not stop running. There were multiple burned out
light bulbs and the kitchen clock needed a battery. Both shower curtains were covered with mildew and the throw rugs had obviously not been washed in months.
Of course I immediately called the Ocean Properties office to report all of these issues. Seeming uninterested, they sent a duo of
housekeepers, who said the pool deck needed pressure washed. Since the property manager claimed the house had just been
cleaned, in order to be sure the house was actually clean, we chose to clean ourselves and worked past midnight.
Tim from maintanence was very helpful and did replace the slats on the blinds, batteries, and lightbulbs. He also brought new outside hoses. He said he would see about fixing the ceiling fan but that did not occur during our stay. The "gentleman" who was sent to pressurewash the pool deck was gone more than he was at the property so he didn't finish the job. He complained to us about how hard it was to find someone to work on a Sunday...honestly not our problem. We fixed a couple of bikes so we could ride...we purchased beach chairs also.
We were given a check to compensate for the inconvenience..insulted.
We truly apologize for the issues you experienced with the house. The house and pool area should have been checked for cleanliness prior to your arrival and we have addressed with the property manager to ensure that it is not repeated. While not acceptable, there are times that the washer and dryer do not remove every hair on the first cycle so the cleaning staff should have identified this while making the bed and re-cleaned the sheets. I do know that as soon as you called, the property manager sent out a cleaning crew to address the cleaning items you listed but you sent them home without a chance to work on a resolution. The maintenance man who cleaned the pool deck was also sent home prior to being able to finish. We did not receive word that there was an issue with the pool furniture until after you had left. If you would have notified us about the furniture in any of your other communications, we would have addressed right away. Based on your feedback, we have replaced all of the pool furniture and the ceiling fan in the bedroom. Customer Service is our top priority and we take it very seriously. Thank you for the opportunity to reply.
New Smyrna Beach Jun'14
The Sasala Beach House offers every amenity you could want or need for a home-away-from-home vacation, plus some! It was emaculate with extra large rooms and living spaces. The in-ground pool is an added luxury, very peaceful and relaxing. There are so many extra amenties that I was not expecting, such as beach chairs, beach towels, extra bed linens, plenty of bath towels and a fully equipped kitchen. Another comfort was knowing the rental company was just down the road, they were every resourceful and helpful. New Smyrna Beach is the perfect beach vacation destination. The beach is clean and always voted one of the best in Florida. This Beach House is perfectly located, just a short stroll to the beach, close to all the restaurants and just a little over an hour to the amusement parks in Orlando. I highly recommend this house, without any hesitation.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our beach home and had the opportunity to unwind. We just love New Smyrna Beach as well and discover new places to explore each time we go back. Hope to have you back again soon.
