Unparallelled Views and Perfect Weather
We departed Chadham-by-the-Sea #412 promptly at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday 22 July 2017 following two wonderful weeks at New Smyrna Beach in perfect weather. Your condo could not be in a better location with its unparalleled view of the ocean from the front and of the Intracoastal Waterway from the rear. My family from Suffolk/U.K. really enjoyed themselves even though they had been to Florida many times before. They said a condo rental is the way to go when compared to an up-scale resort hotel.
Great Condo. The condo had everything we needed for a great week!
Chadham By The Sea - Unit 412
We enjoyed our stay in New Smyrna Beach FL at Chadham By The Sea Unit 412. The condo was so pretty and spacious! Especially loved the size of the master bedroom. The complex is located further down the beach where no cars can drive and there are far less people there too. We had the beach practically to ourselves and the pool too. We did not mind the drive into town at all. We loved every minute of our trip, and Liz and Neville were always helpful and very pleasant to rent from. I definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit New Smyrna Beach FL!
WOW! What a view.
I've been to my share of condos and this one is right up there at the top.
First of all the view is second to none. The whole back of the condo (which is right on the ocean) is all window, top to bottom, with full screens that you can close to let the ocean put you to sleep at night. I challenge you to find a better ocean view. And don't get me started on that enormous (and very clean) tiled master bedroom! The walk-in closet there could sub for another bedroom it's so big.
The beach at this place is also amazing. We arrived the first day of June, and every day we went out there were never more than 20 people (kids included) on the beach. Most of the time there were more like half of that. We felt so carefree setting up our tent with no one around fighting for space. There were swim noodles and a boogie board available with some other beach knick-knacks in the closet as well, though we never used them.
The kitchen was fully equipped with all you would need, and all in good condition as well. No bent out of shape frying pans or burnt pots to be seen. It all was as good as in my own kitchen. It was great watching dolphins swim, sea birds diving in the water, and surfers wiping out as we ate breakfast on the balcony each morning.
The parking lot had plenty of parking (free of course) and we always got a spot near the elevator.
The owners were hands-down the best I've dealt with too. Very kind and warm people. I had specific questions ,and plenty of them as well. They answered them with nothing but politeness and promptness too. I really felt that had I run into even the slightest problem it would be fixed quickly. I also got my deposit back in a timely manner (within a week).
If I had to pick something to complain about, I guess it would have to be that it was another 10 minutes down the road drive to reach the condo. But when you realize that leads to way fewer people on the beach, and this excellent condo, that extra 10 minutes seems to not matter any more than the cares I left behind when I walked through the door of this place!
Thank you Liz and Neville for sharing your place with my family, if only for a short time!
What a beautiful, relaxing vacation spot! All of the necessary items were available in this spacious condo, as far as kitchen utensils, towels, hand soaps, dish soap and laundry detergent, which we appreciated. Beach was very private and mostly deserted this time of year. We visited Sea World and explored a bit locally, but really enjoyed just hanging out on the balcony, at the beach or by the pool. Can't beat the view here every morning and evening! Hope to return again.
Great 3 Bedroom Ground Floor Unit Right on the Beach
Very nice unit on the ground floor of this complex - great to be on the no drive portion of New Smyrna. Full kitchen allowed us to prepare our meals - didn't miss the wait times at restaurants over the holiday weekend. Plenty of room - grounds and pool are well kept and the property is gated. Great owners and local contacts were great to work with.
Best of All
There is no way to adequately describe this property. It is simply the best. We are repeat renters, this is now our 3rd year, (we're up to 2 months a year) and we intend to continue. Over the years, we have stayed in many rentals/timeshares and this is by far the best of anything we've tried.
The best ocean view and the best river/intercoastal view, I've seen. On a relaxing day, the hardest decision we have is what view do you want to watch. The sun shining on the ocean is great but the sunset over the river can not be beat.
Looking out the master bedroom floor to ceiling and wall to wall windows or the balcony which is off living room, it's like you are on the beach and the balcony is nice size and nice to eat lunch.
The beach is great. My wife and I regularly run/walk along it for hours a day and you can find some nice shells. There's a beach side park that surfers use regularly and you can watch them from the balcony. As I write this review there are people getting into 3 ocean kayaks right in front of the condo.
The master bedroom, which has a king bed, is huge not like some rentals where you don't have any walking room with a king bed. We've used the carpeted floor between the bed and window as our exercise area. Master bedroom also has its own bathroom and a large walk in closet. My wife loves hearing the waves at night.
The second bedroom has a queen bed, dresser and 2 end tables plus a wall length closet for plenty of hanging clothes. 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds, an end table between them, a dresser and also has a wall length closet. From both of these rooms, you can look out their window and see the river/intercoastal waterway. They share a bathroom.
We've done Disney 2 years with the grandchildren, it’s an easy drive (about 1 to 1 1/2 hour), so you get the best of Florida beach and Disney. A short walk across the street is a children's park, which our grandchildren love to play at when they are not digging in the sand or swimming. The park has a board walk over the water and we've seen manatees swimming there. Dolphins can regularly be seen from the condo balcony swimming by in the ocean.
Liz and Neville provide great service. Last year the complex internet was inconsistent, so they installed internet in the unit for my use.
The unit is near the south end of the island so it is uncrowded with limited traffic going by but still just a short drive to a wide range of restaurants, stores, etc.
