Guest Reviews

December 5, 2013- “We stayed in this condo with our grandchildren and had chilly, windy weather. We were all very comfortable inside and had the benefit of the great balcony space. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen had all the utensils you could possibly need. We are hoping to go back in the spring.”

-Steve and Sherry, Clermont, FL, Shorehom by the Sea Unit 45

March 10, 2012 -“The Unit was clean and the beds were comfortable. The view is wonderful! Would like to rent again next year! The House was very clean and had plenty of room for everyone. Convenient location near the manatee park and I enjoyed walking on the beach twice daily. I had a very good time! Thank you!”

-Mary Ann Barnhorn, Orlando, FL, Atlantic Beach Retreat Bethune

May 30, 2015 – “The property sits on one of the best spots of NSB… The support people are always available to assist you wit any problems. Love it. 

— Bud T., LaKaSa House on Hill Street 


“Beautifully decorated, maintained and stocked. This is not a beach house- it is a beach home. Quiet, clean, well located on the no-drive part of the beach. Easy Beach access. Management was very helpful and made the entire trip very easy.”

-Thomas and Cheri, Miami, FL

This rental provided my wife and I the perfect place to unwind. The unit was clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay there again.”

“BEST BEACH HOUSE EVER! This is my favorite beach house ever! I’ve stayed in several other beach rentals all over Florida, and this one is my favorite. Peacefully secluded, yet close to everything. The owners have outdone themselves with the decor. Very comfortable and welcoming. Sit on the balcony and see the water. Great place to swim, walk, ride a bike, or just chill and relax. Lots to do close by. Had so much fun there. Price was great too. When I saw how nice it was, I was surprised it didn’t cost a lot more! Even met some of the neighbors and they were great too. Be sure to go to Breakers, famous for the best burgers in town! I’m sure we will stay there again. Loved it!!!!”

— Roxanne, Turtle Mound Treasure, 1/15 

August 4, 2013- “I brought my family to ocean walk this past summer. We had the best time!!! The condo was super clean and very accommodating for family fun. The two pools were great. The guys played bocci and basketball while the girls watched movies and tanned in the sun. The beach was not too far of a walk even for our 3 and 4 year old. We will be having a Super Summer 2014!”

Thomas and Linda, Plainville, GA, OW9-604

“Kathi, First I would like to say thank you so much for your great assistance in getting us in to see the Dolphin Beach House. I really appreciate you going the extra mile for us… Again thank you for your assistance and [I] look forward to working with you again in the future. Have a great day!”

— Tyna H., Dolphin Beach House, 10/14 

March 17, 2012 -“We had a wonderful week! We were quite pleased with the cleanliness of this unit. It had everything we needed.

Amazing view from the balcony. Hard to leave such a setting. Thank you!”

-Dan and Anne Filbey, Windsor, Ontario, Canada, Shorehom by the Sea 47

August 24, 2011 – “I have to say that I was very impressed with the quality of customer service you and your company provided in making this reservation and then trying to iron out a solution. You went over and above and your prompt follow-up was very impressive. In a world where customer service is not always a top consideration, it is so refreshing to find the kind of service you and your company provides. My husband and I will be contacting your office when the time comes to book our winter 2013 and we will book both months at New Smyrna Beach. Thank you for handling this cancellation with the condo and the insurance company. I hope to talk to you in the future.”

We do hope to go back there again sometime in the future. Best Regards.”

-Micheline and Alain Payet, Laval, QC Canada, The Inlet at Minorca 1502

June 7, 2014- “Oh what a month! My family rented this property for the month and couldn’t have asked for a lovelier vacation experience. The unit was as well appointed as pictured and then some, the rental group so easy to work with and New Smyrna Beach was as charming as ever. Would lightly recommend this unit to anyone at all! We look forward to returning next summer.”

— Paul and Paula L., Winter Park, FL, Schooner Point Unit A204

March 12, 2011 -“As far as the home, it’s in excellent condition can’t wait to write a positive review of this home. When we got here it was nice and clean, had everything we needed, plenty of towels n bath rags. We are use to having to go out and buy items that were already here for our use. It feels good to vacation in a home away from home and that’s just how it feels. It has excellent parking for our trailer with the bikes. Everything was perfect. We are not from this area we came down from North Carolina, but alarm surely makes us feel safe. So far, our stay has been a delightful experience. We promise to leave the home in tip-top shape just like it was when we got here.”

-Shanita Jackson, Oak Boro, NC, Daytona-Historic Marina View

We are looking forward to our next visit in October. If you can recommend one of your oceanfront homes for the next time, that would be great. I always like to book ahead. Take care and have a great day.”

— Brian and Linda, Orlando, FL, Flounder House

September 4, 2013 -“Once again incredible stay at this condo!! Every morning with cup of coffee watching the dolphins from the balcony with the unbelievable sunrises and ocean breeze. Not a worry when you are staying here!! Already planning next visit 🙂 “

-James and Judy, Cumming, GA, Towers Grande 603

July 31, 2013 -“A nicely furnished and well equipped condo with terrific views and easy access to the ocean. Lots of beach toys, including boogie boards and surf boards. After some initial bumps concerning a non-working key and confusion about turtle-lighting instructions (all handled in good spirit by the staff), all went smoothly. My family, having spent a week at this beach for the last four or five years, voted this property their favorite location so far.”

-Barbara, Orlando, FL, Smyrna Beach Club 314B

May 31, 2015 – We have had such a lovely stay and will highly recommend this house and Great Oceans Condos to others. Thank you, again, for a pleasant experience. We look forward to sharing our experience with others and returning in the future. Kind regards.”

— Lesley K., Flounder 


November 11, 2011- “Hi, we had a fabulous trip…great condo! We are hoping to all go back next November and renting an additional unit as well.”

-Ken and Kelley Love, Tottenham, ON, Oceanwalk 14-307

March 3, 2013 -“We spent our entire winter in this very comfortable house, with 180 degree, unobstructed ocean views. By the time we left, after ten weeks of residence, we felt it was our own home. You can see ocean from three directions in four of the rooms. There is an open living design for the kitchen, dining and living room areas, and three bedrooms are on one side of this space. All are cozy and attractively decorated in beach house decor. Very nice. The bathrooms and some of the furniture are getting tired looking and could use updating but we really enjoyed staying here. The all-purpose grocery store is 5 miles away, a slight negative, but there is a Dollar Market about 3 miles up A1A that has the basics — some meat, frozen foods, canned goods, and small array of produce. Overall, we had a terrific stay here and hope to return for another vacation. The property managers are very responsive to all your needs and questions.”

-Bob and Ellen, Guilford, CT, Atlantic Beach Retreat Bethune

June 15, 2013 -“To Greater Ocean Condos, I wish to commend you and the owners for Southwind Condo #801, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, that our family rented for the week of June 15-22, 2013. The reservation process involved in renting that unit was excellent. The system established for determining the availability of the unit, the cost and fees involved were made clear, and the rules and regulations offered in a timely manner. Unit 801 was very beautiful, including the art work on the walls, and the furnishings were comfortable and attractive. The kitchen was well equipped and the appliances operated without any problems. The pool was clean and an excellent amenity for Southwind as was the lounge on the 12th floor that was available for a group gathering. The view of the ocean was spectacular and the beach was a favorite gathering place for the family. The owners who were present in various units were cordial and kind to those of us renters. All in all, it was a very wonderful week for our family, and we plan to return next summer for another week at the beach. “

-Wytch and Jo Anne, Avondale Estates, GA, Southwind 801

January 19, 2013 -“We very much enjoyed our week stay at unit 403. What a great ocean view with all the necessary amenities included. We could not get a dial tone or wifi service upon arrival but the problems were rectified by midweek. The unit was very nicely furnished with top of the line appliances all resulting in a very positive stay.”

-Garry and Terry, Richmond,VA, Ebb Tide 403

January 28, 2012- “The unit is an exceptionally nice condo and we enjoyed the stay. We would like to extend our thanks to your staff and the Steele family for having allowed us to stay here.”

June 2, 2014 – “We had a wonderful time at Hill Street Home. The house was perfect for us and the guest we had for our granddaughter’s first birthday. Terry next door was helpful also.”

–Glenda M., Winter Springs, FL, LaKaSa House on Hill St.

March 18, 2011 -“Just wanted to drop a line to thank you very much for the first week of March at 905 Flounder. We all enjoyed our stay at your home so very much. I just have to say that we have rented a few homes over the years and yours is now our “hands down” favorite. Totally the best equipped and well maintained home we have had yet and it made our stay so comfortable. Loved your neighbor across the street as well they were fantastic to us.”

-Laurie W., Midhurst, Ontario, Canada, Ebb Tide 404

“Top Notch Home. A lot of love has gone into this home. Every detail has been thought of. Beautifully decorated and well equipped. Feel free to spread out, you will not be cramped. Our family of 6 has enjoyed numerous stays in this spacious home and had ample room to house additional guests. Nothing to bring but yourselves and great expectations. Short walk to the beach access. Great dining and nearby shopping too. You will not be disappointed.”

— “6intheFam”, Blue Pelican on Maralyn House, 3/14 

March 5, 2013 -“This condo was amazing! It was clean, comfortable and newly renovated. Waking up every morning and sitting on the balcony while gazing out at the open ocean was my favorite part! I will 100% be staying here on my next visit to NSB! Thanks for a great stay!”

-Steven, Cumberland, RI, Ponce de Leon Towers 803

September 13, 2014 – “Relaxing, rejuvenating, and close to everything. We had an excellent experience over Labor Day. What a great way to officially end summer; swimming, relaxing in the hammock, sitting around the fire pit in the evening, riding bikes and of course, the beach. We took advantage of the grill on the property and cooked out a few times. The house is close enough to walk to Flagler Avenue, which has plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. A huge, fully stocked Publix is very close, and Canaveral National Seashore is a short drive down Atlantic and is so pristine – no condos, houses or commercial buildings! There is a walkway to the drive-on beach just 2 blocks away from this property. At night, and early in the morning, one of our favorite things to do was listen to the sound of the ocean. It was so relaxing! The backyard is HUGE, full of tropical plants, and the house itself is fully stocked with everything you need, and just a really comfortable place. We will be back!”

— New Smyrna Beach Lover, Beach House on Evergreen

August 6, 2011 -“We had a wonderful week at the Flounder House and hope to rent again in the future.”

-Marguerite T., Sanford, FL, Flounder House

February 2013 – “We have had a wonderful month in the lovely condo. I appreciate how well it is furnished and equipped. We enjoyed a lot of bike riding, beach time, pool time and basking in the sun- an escape from the crowd of upstate New York. It was great to walk at the dunes, park and ride out the back. Our favorite place to fish is by the water at J.B’s Fish Camp. We also went to Hidden Treasures, it is very quirky and has music on Saturday after noon. We enjoyed having rest. My brother and his wife were there for the Daytona 500 and had a ball as well. Back to reality and cold weather.”

-Elma, Clifton Park, NY, Oceanwalk 12-206

February 21, 2014 – “Joyce and I found the condo very nicely decorated and well supplied. We had a great time, enjoyed the weekly events and met many nice residents. Your unit is wonderful- we were very comfortable, and would love to come back next year.”

– Bill and Joyce F., Poughkeepsie, NY, Seacoast Condominium Unit 211

April 7, 2012 -“This is a beautiful, spacious condo- the setting is breathtaking. Our family enjoyed it all, had great family fun, and is taking home beautiful memories. This was our first time in New Smyrna Beach and we loved it! We definitely plan to seek your help again in the future. Things were taken care of in a timely manner and all of you were excellent to work with. Thank you!”

-Robert and Martha Rice, Williamsville, NY, The Ocean 502

-Christopher, Albany, NY

“With my daughter and grandsons I had a wonderful week at New Smyrna Beach staying in this luxurious property in the autumn of 2008. It is an ideal place for active youngsters and the accommodation then was extremely comfortable. I am aware that it has been extended since and, insofar as it would be possible(!), improved. There were excellent facilities in the area and it is only a short distance from the magnificent beach.

— Metty, Blue Pelican on Maralyn House, 1/15

Because of the race is always on Sunday I would like to make arrangements like we did this time. Thursday for Tuesday works the best for me; I would like to book early but would like to have 3 bedrooms instead of 2. If you see anything that would work, let me know. Thanks again!”

-Jan McAlister, St. Francis, MN, Fisherman’s Intracoastal Cottage

May 25, 2012 -“Thank you so much for a great weekend getaway! Very nice home and super relaxing!”

December 27, 2013- “This condo rocks! This condo was everything we hoped it would be. It was very clean, spacious, had a well-stocked kitchen and had a beautiful view! The furniture in the living room was very comfortable and we loved how they had it decorated. The beds were very comfortable too!”

-Dawn, Brentwood, TN, Oceanwalk 9 Unit 604

“My family visited from Atlanta for a week over the summer. The unit and master bedroom had an amazing beach view and huge balcony. Condo easily fit the four of us and was very close to great restaurants and Publix. Would definitely rent here and visit New Smyrna again!

— Beth Anne, Malibu, Unit 303, 1/15 

June 12, 2015 – “Phenomenal! When entering the beach house, the ambiance was welcoming, vibrant, and relaxing. It was immaculate and incredibly well-maintained. It was wonderful to have the luxury of walking out onto the porch and watch the sunrise every morning and have a variety of amenities available that made our stay even more enjoyable. With 25 of us in the house, there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably and gather for nightly activities. I could not imagine a better place to stay for a week or two than this beach house. Thank you for providing everything we needed to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. I can’t wait to come back again someday.

— Samantha S., LaKaSa House on Hill Street

-William and Barbara Tunison, Coldwater, MI

October 30, 2010 -“First let me preface this review, I had not been to New Smyrna Beach in over 18 years and knew that NSB is more of a condo town than hotel/motel town. Previously I have stayed on Atlantic Avenue in two different condo complexes. In searching VRBO I stumbled upon the Minorca/Inlet properties and decided (after reading the most favorable reviews) to try this property. This unit was spectacular the view, the amenities, as clean as you would keep your own home, the accommodations were as my husband remarked, “out of the ballpark!” We travel quite extensively for business and pleasure and this was a 5 star stay for us. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony watching the surfers along the beach, the gym was great, the grounds lush and well kept, quiet and relaxing! We hope to return to this property again when time allows. You can’t go wrong staying here.”

-Steve and Clarita Buffaloe, Knoxville,TN

October 20, 2011 – “This was the most well stocked unit we have ever stayed in! It was so nice to have plenty of towels (bath, beach, and kitchen) and it was nice to have beach toys and basic pantry items to use!”

-Andrew and Betsy R., Winter Park, FL, Hacienda Del Sol II 517

December 5, 2013 – “We stayed in this condo with our grandchildren and had chilly, windy weather. We were all very comfortable inside and had the benefit of the great balcony space. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen had all the utensils you could possibly need. We are hoping to go back in the spring!”

– Steve and Sherry, Clermont, FL, Shorehom by the Sea Unit 45

October 5, 2013 – “You’ve made this little condo so homey that we feel completely cozy here. The wind is amazing, the landscape reminiscent of old Florida and we’re all captivated by the idea that little baby turtles are preparing to hatch so close to us. Thank you for sharing your beach home and we wish you many great times here! Numbers 6:24-26 ” The Lord bless you and keep you… “”

-Leah and Josh, Spring Hill, TN, Ocean Club at Turtle Mound 202

June 27, 2013 -“My husband and I stayed here June 23-27, 2013 and was very impressed with the way the company worked with us since we weren’t staying the whole week. It was a health check *vacation* for my aunt! The condo is beautifully decorated, looking as if every room could be featured in any decorating magazine! We loved the comforting sandy tones used throughout the condo. We were sad at first that it was on the first floor with no view of the beach, but we found that it forced us to get out of our comfort zone and drift towards the observation deck above the beautiful beach! We were able to mingle with other vacationers, who we really enjoyed. The little patio outside the bedroom was quite cozy and a nice place to enjoy our morning coffee…so it was all good! The pool area was one of the best we have seen…two large pools, one heated, one not, and two baby pools! Amazing amount of area designated for this…plus shuffle board and other areas for play. We have vacationed at New Smyrna Beach for the last five years. I have to say that this southern part of the beach has become my favorite! We loved this part because of the ease of walking, no motor traffic and safety. The beach is huge through this part of NSB! Plenty of room for everyone, and it’s common for people to leave their beach umbrellas, etc overnight. Nothing was ever bothered! It’s the best area for little children. What started out as a bit disappointing because of no view, ended up being one of our favorites!”

-Suzanna, Albers, IL, Sea Coast Gardens III 115

January 30, 2015 –We had a wonderful time and will definitely consider renting again. Your home is lovely, well-maintained, and provided us with an enjoyable month. The weather is ideal. Easy access to the beach, to various restaurants and other adventure. Thanks again for your hospitality.”

— Todd T. and Janice B., Historic Silver Beach Place 


July 31, 2013-“We were very pleased with the condo which was clean, bright and had everything we needed. The pool and clubhouse were steps away and well-maintained. The private beach was clean and the guests were friendly. We will definitely be back for another visit in the future. “

I was close to my son in college so I was able to see him. I was able to forget about all of my worries for at least a little while and come back with some peace. It was just perfect! God bless you for doing this for us Vets! The owners took us boating and that was the icing on the cake!”

–Bill and Heather Strickland, Springfield, GA, Shorehom by the Sea 21

“Beautiful furnishings! We really enjoyed this condo which is perfectly located in New Smyrna Beach! The furnishings were just beautiful and we loved all of the personal touches in the art work and amenities. Their is a “Margarator” blender that we made good use of and my husband was in hog heaven with all of the high end electronics.. especially the gigantic HD TVs. The condo itself was HUGH, and we really enjoyed the patio and sunsets overlooking the nature preserve. The place was very clean and well maintained. We did have one problem with the drain in the bathroom, but when we called the management, they had someone out their the very same day… and it was an easy fix. We can’t wait till next year to come back and enjoy and have already made our reservation…

— Pamela B., Oceanwalk 4, Unit 503, 1/15 

February 4, 2012 -“We were so happy to have the first couple of days be so beautiful since now the weather has been much cooler.

-Brenda, Atlanta, GA, Dolphin Beach House

August 31, 2011 -“I would just like to compliment Maggie for all of the help she was to us when we had the air-conditioning problem at Flounder House. She talked to me and kept me informed even when she wasn’t on duty and for that I am very grateful. I also appreciate the refund of one night’s stay. Thank you for being responsible people and caring about your guests. I would love to come back to one of your properties at another time.”

-Judy R., The Villages, FL, Flounder House

February 1, 2014 – “Great unit with a great view. Plenty of room. We only regret that Lumpy and Peggy weren’t able to get away and join us. If you like quiet, this is the perfect place.”

– Paul and Barb C., Hastings, MI, Inlet at Minorca Unit 103

July 27, 2014 – “Newborn Retreat. Our recent stay was so pleasant and relaxing and our ocean views from our room were beautiful. Located just seconds from the water in New Smyrna this cottage is delightful. We slept in the upstairs master suite which has an amazing view where we could sit and enjoy our morning coffee. The sunrise was very colorful each day. This trip was more of a stay-cation for us as we live in Orlando. We had just had our third daughter three weeks prior and were looking for a relaxing week at the beach with our children, and that, is just what we got. We loved our stay and would most certainly return. “

–Rowena H., Maitland, FL, Coastal Cottage on Hill Street

<em>May 27, 2013 -“We enjoyed our stay at Errol by the Sea. The amenities are very well maintained and the condo was exactly as pictured. It was spacious for 5 adults and 2 toddlers and we had a great view of the ocean from the living and dining room. We have stayed in other locations in the past years and finally found a location that we will want to stay in again next year. “

-Donald and Anita, Sorrento, FL, Errol by the Sea 514

“This is a beautifully appointed, extremley clean and very comfortable house in a peaceful setting, yet within easy walking distance of the beach. There are many places to eat and interesting areas to visit. Perfect for families and for myself as a disabled person. It was lovely sitting on the veranda looking and listening to the birds and hearing the sea – a short walk away. I can thoroughly recommend it.”

September 2, 2011 -“Hey, thanks! We had a wonderful time and loved the condo. The beach was so quiet. I’ve never seen the water calmer. We would love to stay at New Smyrna again and will be traveling again in the next year so we’ll be in touch. We would highly recommend your services.”

The kids were comfortable in their rooms equipped with gaming gear for entertainment during their breaks from the beach across the street and 2 large pools on the property. We had a wonderful time and will bring our family back.

-Pat C., Lexington, KY, Ebb Tide 404

-Henrietta Philpot, Cincinnati, Ohio

August 17, 2014 – Clean and spotless! I highly recommend this house. The decor is very stylish. Location wise it is perfect being walking distance from the beach, stores, and restaurants. The kitchen had all amenities you would need. There is a screened-in lanai with a ceiling fan and a bbq grill in the backyard. The bikes were a plus as we rode them out to dinner or nearby for ice cream! We absolutely love this place! I recommended this home to my friends. We will definitely come back this year.”

— Karen, Sea Star

December 18, 2011 – “Hi Jennifer! We love you guys – I checked your website for months before we booked our first condo and fell in love with the site – both its ease of use and the listings on it. My husband is from NSB. He grew up there and his mom still lives in town. For several years we just stayed with her but now our family is really too big to put her out so we started renting. We loved Oceanwalk and now can’t wait to try the Wave. Your service at Great Ocean Condos has been fantastic and we really want to thank you. We hope to be back again this summer as well. Thanks for making it so easy for our family to travel such a long distance and have fun while doing it! Happy Holidays!”

-Kristin Glunt, San Francisco, CA, The Wave 801

January 26, 2013 -“We had a great time! The condo is well kept and has a spectacular view of the ocean. Also, the pool view is great could watch grandchildren swimming from unit.

“Great Ocean Condos was the best! Hello ladies and gents at Great Ocean Condos. I want to thank you for always being there when I need you. Your service was superb when we stayed at the Flounder House. We are looking forward to our next visit in October. If you can recommend one of your oceanfront homes for the next time, that would be great. I always like to book ahead. Take care and have a great day.”

Brian and Linda W., June 20, 2014 – Flounder Beach House

“Plush. Had a great time! Fantastic amenities, endless activities, list goes on. Just footsteps from the beach. My friends and I also enjoyed the dining in the area. Specifically at a restaurant called The Garlic. Our dinner was amazing. The local are very pleasant and helpful too. I’d recommend a stay to all of my family and friends.”

— Marvin J., LaKaSa House on Hill Street, 8/14 

January 29, 2014- “We have enjoyed our stay in #903. In addition to #903 being terrific, we thoroughly enjoyed the Minorca complex & city of New Smyrna Beach. My husband & I think it’s was the nicest condo we’ve ever rented in FL. Also, it has been a pleasure to rent from Great Ocean Condos, a very professionally run yet friendly property management/rental company. Everything was so nicely decorated and the kitchen so well equipped and it’s obvious the Steeles put a lot of time, effort and expense into remodeling and have very good taste in decorating. We were wondering if they have any rental condos in other FL. cities. Although we may not be able to travel next year because of a remodeling project for our rental condo in DE, we hope to travel to FL for following years. We stay in different cities for January and February.”

-Susan, Milton, DE, Inlet at Minorca Unit 903

May 11, 2013 -“Southwind 801 was like home away from home!! The condo was very spacious and well maintained! Directly on the beach, with wonderful views!!! Having beach chairs already in the room made things so much easier!!! Would definitely recommend this rental!! Look forward to booking again soon!”

-Michael, Whitesburt, KY, Southwind 801

July 2013 – “Thanks for your great hospitality. We had a fantastic time. The condo is beautiful and the beach is perfect. Looking forward to coming back again.”

– Janet D., Baldwinsville, NY, Oceanwalk 10 Unit 502

“Great Beach House. We stayed at this property over Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful time. The property is clean, quiet and roomy. There was more than adequate space for our large family to sleep, dine and play. The decor is far more tasteful than your typical beach rental and the beach is a stone’s throw away. We can’t wait to go back. “

— Alan, Turtlemound Treasure, 11/14 

August 22, 2010 -“Hi Jennifer, Thank you for handling our deposit so quickly! We have nothing but the best to say about our dealings with you and your team. Hopefully, we’ll see you in 2012.”

-Patty M., Queensbury, NY, Sea Coast Gardens II 504

“This is a delightfully spacious home with everything a family could want. We loved sitting on the swing chair on the porch listening to the sound of the sea – a few minutes walk away. Lots of restaurants in the area. Highly recommend this property for all age groups – so much to see and do.”

— “Welsh Lady”, Blue Pelican on Maralyn House, 10/14 

December 21, 2013- “This condo is awesome. Perfect views. Up to date furnishings. Low key atmosphere. A great place to vacation. We will be back to enjoy!!!”

– Jamie, Bridgeport, WV, Ponce de Leon Towers, Unit 803

June 22, 2013 -“We have stayed in New Smyrna Beach for the last 30 years for our family 2 week vacation. During that time we’ve stayed at many complexes as well as many different apartments in those complexes. Ebb Tide is one of our favorite places, and the unit we just rented was probably one of the very best we’ve ever stayed in. There were plenty of towels, kitchen equipment, and the place was very clean and decorated in a “nautical” theme. We’d like to highly recommend you rent this unit if you get a chance. You’ll love it!”

-Paul and Elaine, Terre Haute, IN, Ebb Tide 506

July 22, 2014 – “Just returned from a wonderful (though slightly rainy) week at Flounder House in New Smyrna Beach. The house was just as described and clean and ready for us. The new owners are making every effort to keep the entire property upgraded and working smoothly, it is obvious that they care about the house and its vacation renters. GreatOceanCondos was easy to work with and resolved a small problem that we weren’t even aware of while we were there. Will definitely use them again when visiting the New Smyrna Beach area. Would highly recommend the Flounder House to anyone except senior citizens who might have trouble with the stairs, but that is true of any multi-story beach house. Thanks for a great week!”

— Wayne M., Rochelle, GA, Flounder Beach House

July 13, 2013- ” We had a wonderful experience in this condo! We got there very late and it was a very easy check in and check out process. The best thing was that the condo very clean. It had all the amenities my family needed. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. It felt like a home away from home. I loved the convenience of having full size washer and dryer. It was a quick walk to the beach and pool. The ocean walk is a wonderful complex and I plan on taking my family back to this condo.”

-Lance and Julie, Humble, TX, Oceanwalk 14-306

January 25, 2014 – “Sea Coast Gardens III Unit #308 was exceptionally clean and the kitchen well equipped, even when we looked for a slow cooker. Everything was new and fresh from furnishings, to linens, to decor. Comfortable balcony chairs and a great view of the ocean. Highly recommend.”

– Susan P., Farmington, CT, Sea Coast Gardens III, Unit 308

June 1, 2013 -“Had a wonderful time at this peaceful getaway. we got to experience the sea turtles coming on shore to lay their eggs at night and the beach was not to crowded during the day. The house was clean and nicely decorated, LOVE THE OUTSIDE PATIO FURNITURE. You should take new pictures of the deck and new patio set..your current photo does not do it justice. I would rate this house a 10 and would recommend it to anyone. I do take a few girl weekend getaways a few times a year, if you ever are interested in renting just for a weekend, we would be interested in booking it for our mini trips.Thank you”

-Julie, Orlando, FL, Atlantic Beach Retreat Bethune

March 30, 2013 -“14-407 is amazing! We had three adults and three children and this suited our family perfect. Very roomy and fully stocked. All we had to do was bring clothes and went grocery shopping when we got there and everything else was provided (ie. towels, fully stocked kitchen, coolers, beach chairs and toys and much more)! The beach was literally right across the street and the pool was just next door. Love that it was a gated community. Orlando is only and hour away so when we had days of amusement parks the drive was not bad. We can’t say enough good things about it. We will definitely be returning and telling all of our friends and family. “

-Chris and Leann, Mt. Pleasant, MI, Oceanwalk 14-407

“As a former Ritz-Carlton executive, I highly recommend this beach house. I was amazed at the ocean views, and really enjoyed waking up to the sound of the ocean on the deck. The house was immaculate upon my arrival, and I was pleasantly surprised how fast the wifi was, being so close to the ocean. The beach was secluded and access was just steps from the property. The best part was that I could walk to the Canaveral National Seashore, JBs Fish Camp – best seafood restaurant on the InterCoastal, and a public park with tennis courts, basketball courts and full playground for the kids. I liked the elephant made out of towels by the cleaning service – reminded me of a Disney cruise. When I see that level of detail, I know the owners care about my experience. Because A1A dead ends at this part of the coast just a mile down the road, there is very little traffic. I am recommending that my wife and her girlfriends rent this property for their next girl’s excursion. We had some rain, so I was pleased to have an enclosed garage – that is not common when staying at a property this close to the ocean. I packed light, so I was pleased that there was a full-size washer & dryer. It is not often that I find a reasonably priced luxury beach house, clean, with ocean views and easy beach access. I stopped by Publix on the way to the house, stocked up, and spent the week grilling, enjoying the beach and relaxing on the deck enjoying the ocean. For me, it felt like a second home, and that was the experience I was looking for.”

— David R., Flounder Beach House, 1/15 

December 30, 2013 – “Paradise Found! Four of us (senior male golfers) rented the LaKaSa for a week, hoping to pamper ourselves. Boy, did this house fit the bill. The location is fantastic, right on the beach with fabulous views. You can easily walk down the beach to the funky main street of New Smyrna, and the neat shops and bars. The house itself was perfect, with a large and very well-equipped kitchen, a big living room with huge HD TV, 4 large bedrooms each with a large bed and private washroom, and wrap-around balcony with very nice patio furniture. Everything was superb, including the weather, and we plan on returning next year if we can. If only the golf could have been half as good as this place!”

– John A, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, LaKaSa House on Hill Street

“Look No Further, You’ve Found the Right Place! This beach house has everything you need for that well deserved vacation. The large open layout makes hanging inside just as fun as outside. Large kitchen with island and dining area is great for being the central location in the house. Decor around the house is tastefully made to remind you of the beach atmosphere. The view of the ocean is great while sitting on the deck or top floor balcony, while the ground floor backyard is surrounded by shrubbery for privacy. It really feels like you’re at your own place when you stay here and not like you’re renting somewhere.”

— Jay C., LaKaSa House, 7/14 

June 28, 2014- “The Crew, thank you so much for making this experience exceptional!!!! My entire family as well as my friends have loved this condo. I told them about the great customer service and have passed on two referrals!!!!!:) I was able to wash and make two of the three beds. Some our party started leaving last Sunday and all but my son and myself left on Tuesday. I am an OCD cleaner so I hope the housekeeper doesn’t mind me “helping out”!! 🙂 Anyway, thanks again. I look forward to working with all if you in the near future!!:) “

— Satisfied Vacationer Kelly J., Mount Pleasant, MI, Minorca Karpathos, Unit 403

January 4, 2014 – “This is a lovely apartment. The kitchen had everything we needed. The master bedroom closet and bath were great!”

– Tom B., Cambridge Springs, PA, Oceanwalk 16, Unit 403

“Perfect Week. Wonderful! That about sums it up! The house was just wonderful! We had 3 adults and 4 teenagers for our family summer vacation and could not have asked for a better time. The house was very clean and comfortable. Being able to include our fur-baby (dog) was also very important to us and a huge plus for our enjoyment. The thing that was really great was that the house included everything you need for the beach! Chairs, toys, skim boards and even a surf board, which my 17 year old son LOVED! And the beach… well a 10 second walk is no lie! SUPER convenient and a wonderful, clean and family oriented beach (no car traffic). The location was close enough to allow us easy access to restaurants and shopping, but secluded enough for quiet evenings sipping wine on the balcony. “

Joseph S., Flounder House, 8/2/14

September 20, 2013- “We had a wonderful time at your condo. Thanks for having us, looking forward to coming back next year. Love all the nautical stuff.”

-Anthony and Patricia, Andersonville, TN, Ocean Club at Turtle Mound 202

April 20, 2013 -“We stayed in the condo for three weeks: 4 adults and 1 baby. It had everything we needed for our stay, was very clean and well appointed. It is also located very well: in the morning sun is on one balcony, in the afternoon – on the other side, so you can always relax in shade. We had a small storm during our stay, and the building was protected from wind so well by other buildings! I definitely wouldn’t want to be by the ocean at that time. The kitchen is so well equipped, I don’t have all these gadgets in my house. Plates and glasses etc. are lots. Everything worked perfectly. The unit doesn’t have a crib, but we bought a playpen and a potty for our daughter and left it in the unit upon departure, so hopefully the owners will leave them there for other guests to use. I would definitely recommend this condo.”

-Svetlana and Mikhail, Mt. Pleasant, AB, Oceanwalk 14-407

“Beautiful location, pretty and comfortable condo building! History of site reflected in art display in this lovely condo. Beautiful views, easy beach access AND access to river through adjacent park with canoe launch area, tennis courts, children’s playgrounds, public restrooms. Biking distance to National Seashore. My oldest grandson (age 13) had such a great time here that he is proposing the entire large family rent several of the condos in this building for a family get together!”

— Janet W., Ocean Club at Turtle Mound, Unit 207, 1/15 

December 2, 2013 -“Condo was beautiful! Right on the ocean wall. If you want a place as close as you can get to ocean, this is the place! Had a problem with frig, and owner was all over it and got it fixed instantly. That’s what I call customer service! We had a great time, and a particularly magic night when moon was full and shining off the waves rolling in. It was special!! Thanks to owners for allowing us to stay in your place. We will definitely return! “

-Curt and Sharon, Brooks, GA, Ponce de Leon Towers 803

July 7,2012 -“We just wanted to express our sincerest appreciation for what was absolutely the BEST vacation in an ocean condo!! We’ve always, for the past 22-24 years, stayed with family when we “vacationed”!! This year, we took the plunge. With the recommendation of a friend in New Symrna Beach, who had installed appliances in these buildings, we contacted you and made arrangements to stay for 10 wonderful days!We drove over 900 miles from Missouri to arrive in NSB! When we opened the door, to our surprise, we found a home away from home, which was very reassuring! Everything we could ask for was there!! We were more than pleased with the comfort of the beds and the furniture provided!! And the privacy was wonderful! The balcony overlooking the palm trees and oaks was very sweet to wake up to and enjoy morning coffee and afternoon drinks! The balcony was spacious and lovely to watch the skyline at night! We enjoyed many meals we made with the provided cookware and dinnerware! We didn’t have to bring a thing from our home because it was all there! The decor of the rooms was very nicely assembled and I have tried, since staying there, to model my own home after the condo?s. Each and every decoration was beautifully placed! The colors used in our room, the blues and tan/beige, were quieting and relaxing!! The jet tub was awesome to relax in and let the bubbles just float you away!You can pretty much gather that our first vacation and 31st wedding anniversary very enjoyable!! We hated to leave a place that was not a tourist attraction and felt like we, if by chance, wanted to relocate to Florida, that NSB would be the area in which to reside!! The security of parking in the covered garage was another comfort in which we didn’t have to worry while staying there! We felt very secure and protected in these condos! We have ventured back to your site to look up Oceanwalk 7-302, to relive the moments captured in our minds and we are planning further visits in the years to come. We will not hesitate to book this room in advance! Please do not change anything about it for it is perfect just the way it is!!!”

January 10, 2014 – “Very friendly complex! Great views and excellent beach access!”

– John M., LaSalle, IL, Smyrna Beach Club Unit 808A

November 24,2011 -“My family and I just spent November 3-13th at the Wave, unit #801. It was amazing. Nothing like being right on the beach and then to be up that high looking down on the ocean everyday was perfect. It was easy to find, a beautiful well-kept building, very private and we felt very safe. The pictures on the greatoceancondos.com website showed the penthouse exactly as it was, no surprises. Just a great, great place. We loved all the windows and all the beautiful tile work and that they had everything we needed. We got a lot of use out of the beach towels, boogie boards, chairs, and sand buckets. The pool and the ocean were perfect. The next time I come to New Smyrna to see my son, I will definitely stay at the Wave. It was perfect. We has come in for my son’s wedding and a few people that live in New Smyrna Beach stopped by, they all loved the place and said that when they have out of town guests, they would let them know about the Wave. Please pass this on to the owners that we loved the place and appreciate them sharing it with us. I have looked at the photos every day since we have we got back. I miss it and wish I was still there. Thank you so much for all of your help.”

-Barbara Applegate, Cincinnati, Ohio, The Wave 801

June 18, 2013- “Great view! Close to beach! Friendly people! Best vacation I have ever had. 4 weeks of heaven! Would recommend to anyone!”

– Richard, Monroe, VA, Flounder Beach House

“A Gem by the Ocean. Last spring two friends and I spent a very enjoyable two-week vacation at Blue Pelican in New Smyrna Beach. It was a perfect choice! Prior to this vacation I had always stayed in condominiums but, after experiencing the spacious accommodation of Blue Pelican, I realized what I had been missing. It is comfortable and very well equipped. The two large bedrooms upstairs, both with their own bathrooms, are perfect for adults and the additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the main level would accommodate many more guests. Outside in the front is a charming porch complete with a swing chair to watch the world go by (and there are even ceiling fans for the very hot weather). The back yard is complete with a barbecue and fire pit. The location is perfect: peaceful, yet half a block to the beach and within walking distance to the local interesting stores – great for browsing. The local diverse restaurants also deserve visits. I would highly recommend Blue Pelican to prospective vacationers, appealing to both adults only or families with children. Truly five star! “

— Ann, Blue Pelican on Maralyn, 4/14 

June 15, 2013 -“My family and I had a wonderful time!!! The other guests and maintenance people were very nice. Look forward to coming back to the same unit next year!!!”

June 11, 2015 – “Great Getaway. This home is exceptional. Decorated nicely. Newly renovated. Bed in master bedroom was very comfortable and the view from the top balcony was very peaceful!

-Harry and Pat C., Lexington, KY, Ebb Tide 106

June 19, 2011 -“Even before we left on vacation, our dealings with Great Ocean Condos were friendly and efficient, instilling a confidence that we were well on our way to a perfect stay! This was a vacation of a lifetime for us, generously provided by my beloved brother Patrick, and this unit provided the perfect location and comforts for just such an occasion! Upon our arrival to this condo we were instantly both relaxed and smitten with the beauty and practicality of this unit. The owners REALLY understood how to vacation as a family here as they made certain that everything a family could need to have a home away from home was provided. With a family size of seven, I KNOW I am not understating this and in fact, cannot emphasis this enough: ) I can even remember a moment while cooking when I thought, “it would be great if there was an apron here…” only to discover one in the drawer!!! Literally, all the utensils and kitchen “extras” I brought from home were totally unnecessary as your team has thought of everything! My brother Patrick and my family and I will cherish our moments at your condo for a lifetime! The sounds of the waves both on the beach and from the spectacular ocean view of your balcony, playing in the surf, discovering “sea creatures” (as my children referred to them), the refreshing plunges in the heated pool, the way just sitting on the beach as the sunshine and surf soothed your soul, etc. lent itself to literally, the most relaxing experience we have ever experienced in our lives. If you are looking to simply savor daily living right on the beach where enjoying the beach with your loved ones is your primary goal, this is the ideal unit for you and your family. Thank you Jennifer and team for graciously opening your home to us to afford our family the stay of lifetime: ) Lord willing, we will return one day to soak it all in again. On behalf of my brother Patrick and The Chapman Family,
Thanks again for all your help in making our stay so wonderful! Take care and Lord bless.”

-Kathleen Chapman

January 2, 2014 – “First I would like to tell you how much we enjoyed your condo. It had everything we needed, beach towels, beach chairs, toys for the kids, and much more.

Snack or potty etc. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back soon.”

“Great Unit, fantastic beachfront location! My friends and I was able to book this condo for a weekend visit at the end of last summer. The unit is huge! We were able to fit all 6 of us comfortably and loved the location and New Smyrna. Would rent again without hesitation.”

— Happy Renter, Malibu, Unit 303, 8/14 

February 23, 2013 -“Condo was comfortable and clean. Thanks Jennifer for taking the time to introduce yourself and help us solve the internet issue.”

-Terry and Ann, Woodstock, Ontario, Sea Coast Gardens III 214

May 30, 2015 – “Super close to the beach, great for a family (we have a 4 year old). You can’t get a lot closer to the beach. There is a one way street with minimal traffic in front of the house, but you are approximately 3 houses away from the non-driving beach which is great when you have a 4 year old. The unit has some updates, which are appreciated. Kitchen is nice sized, showers have been updated and there is a nice entertainment system… Housekeeping was EXCELLENT, place was spotless. You are several miles from food and groceries, etc. We would definitely stay again.

— Jason and Dawn J., Atlantic Beach Escape Bethune 


February 23, 2013 -“The condo was very clean and nicely decorated. Is on the no-drive beach which is a big plus. The condo grounds are extremely well kept. All around a very nice property.”

-Mark and Kathleen, Manchester, NH, Sea Coast Condominium 407

March 23, 2013 -“The condo was very comfortable, well-equipped and clean and orderly when we arrived. I would like to say that it was a pleasure dealing with you. Your website – particularly the many photographs – provided an excellent description of the apartment…in fact, when we arrived and walked in, it was almost as if we had been here before! Everything was as advertised. Everyone of your staff who we dealt with were polite, well-informed and prompt in replying to our questions, concerns, etc. The arrival and departure instructions were clear. We found New Smyrna Beach to be ‘our kind of town’ and, if we decide to return to Florida in the future, we would be more than happy to deal with you again. Best regards”

-Dick and Fran, Marathon, ON, Oceanwalk 14-407

April 26, 2012 -“We were pleasantly surprised to see everything as clean as it was. I have a cleaning business of my own, and pay particular attention to the overlooked areas, like light bulbs and trim work, even under the bed was clean (daughter hid under it one night)! VERY IMPRESSED! Loved this unit, perfect for our family!”

– Mark and Michelle Nelson, Newburgh, IN, Schooner Point A204

August 30 2013 – “Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. We love the location and of course, the view! Great place for a family!”

-Eric and Rowenda, Maitland, FL, Ocean Club at Turtle Mound 202

“Beautiful, beachfront oasis. We stayed here last April, and it was amazing. Clean, well maintained, and extremely spacious PLUS steps away from the beach. It’s overall a beautiful and comfortable home. Not only is the beach location perfect, but it is also close enough to walk to the grocery if you feel so inclined. Several people in our group preferred walking to driving, but it’s convenient for both. It’s also a quick drive downtown. There are 2 decks, as well as a balcony off the master bedroom. It’s so easy to immerse yourself in the beach air with all of the outdoor spaces, which was very nice. Definitely excited to revisit this summer!!”

— Kimberly M., LaKaSa House on Hill Street, 4/14 

September 7, 2013- “We were very pleased with the condition of this unit when we checked in. It was very well appointed. We appreciated all the convenient kitchen equipment provided as well. The location was ideal! Everything was great!”

-Doug and Charlotte Coulter, Toronto, ON Canada, The Ocean 502

August 23, 2011 -“Hi there, Just a happy and satisfied Great Ocean Condos customer- thanks for making the experience easy and perfect.

March 10, 2012 -“Everything was excellent!!!”

-Henry and Linda Liefer, Belleville, IL, Coronado Landing Duplex

May 11, 2015 –Great vacation! We loved the house. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed (plus more). We hardly used our car as we could walk to restaurants, the beach, church, and a local bar. We loved the beach cruisers which enabled us to sightsee as well as ride for bagels each morning. The house was clean and spacious and we loved the privacy of the backyard while we barbequed. Some of our favorite activities were shelling at nearby Canaveral National Seashore, ocean front dining at Chases on the Beach, dining at JB’s Fish Camp, riding the beach cruisers, and just hanging at the house. Great Ocean Condos were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend this home for families as well as a girls getaway! We can’t wait to come back!”

— Mary Agnes, Sea Star 


April 14, 2012 -“It was such a wonderful week and the unit was so beautiful and a perfect location. We had great weather and we felt so lucky to have picked your beautiful condo. Thank you so much and if we come back you will be the first we contact!”

-William and Barbara Tunison, Coldwater, MI, Ebb Tide 102

July 27, 2013-“The view from the 5th floor balcony was breathtaking, especially with the sunrise each morning. Both the unit and the entire property were very clean and well kept. Beds were surprisingly very comfortable. First vacation I have been able to relax, turn off my cell phone and enjoy the comforts of the unit, property & beach. Very close to shops and eateries. Definitely on our list to re-visit next year.”

-Michael, Bellbrook, OH, Sea Coast Gardens II 504

October 1, 2013 – “I will look these over, but let me just say this is an incredibly helpful email!! Thank you so much for taking the time to put this information together. People are so quick to criticize and slow to praise, so I just want to take a second and tell you what great customer service you provide. It is tough to “hear” a helpful tone through email, but yours did exactly that. So, just wanted to pass on the pat on the back! :)”

-Kay E., Tucker, GA, Ebb Tide 106

July 27, 2015 – “Great location and wonderful week. The home was beautiful and provided anything that you needed to enjoy a day at the beach. It is also located on a very quiet part of the beach and gave a sense of privacy. We had a group of 10 including 5 kids and would have no problem returning next year. It is a place that should appeal to anyone looking to experience the beauty of Florida and in particular the ocean. Breakers is just down the beach on Flagler and has outstanding food and the view is second to none. Unfortunately JB’s was a huge disappointment and has changed much since my last visit 20 years ago. Location grants easy access to the Orlando theme parks and after spending a day at one of the parks, it is awesome to be able to just relax on the beach and get away from the crowds.”

— Gregg J., Turtlemound Treasure


August 15, 2011 -“We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hexter’s condo this past week.

-Rod & Lisa D., Atlanta, GA, Mediterranean 403

December 30, 2011 -“I just wanted you to know we have really enjoyed using your condo here in NSB. I believe Oceanwalk is one of the best resorts here and highly recommend others to use it as well.

That was very impressive!”

There is a pool area, with a grill, which is very nice for relaxing. Just a short walk to the sandy beach. I would recommend this unit for the great balcony space and corner view. The kitchen is also a bonus for cooking in.”

-Stan and Rachel, Atlanta, GA, Ocean Club at Turtle Mound 207

November 23, 2013- “The person who decorated this condo in a nautical theme did an excellent job. The condo was very clean and well stocked and has an outstanding view of the ocean. The condo rental staff was very helpful and the restaurants such as Norwoods, The Garlic, So Napa Grill, and J.B.’s were all great. I will include this condo on my list of the best condos I have stayed at.”

– William and Patricia, Orlando, FL, Ebb Tide Unit 404

March 30, 2013 -“I wanted to let you know we were really happy with our stay at Dolphin Beach House this past week. We have stayed in condos in the past, not knowing what to expect when we get there. Sometimes, it’s a big disappointment. We actually left a day early from Myrtle Beach this past summer because the condo was so horrible. But our stay this week was very enjoyable, everything was clean! There was so much room, places to sit in the living room. We will definitely be back to stay, we have been going to New Smyrna Beach for quite a few years, staying in different places and never finding a place we wanted to go back to. But we loved the house, and location. It is so nice to know there’s a place to return to on our vacations to New Smyrna Beach! Thanks again!!!”

-Jim and Tammy, Evansville, IN, Dolphin Beach House

February 4, 2014- “If there was a 10 star rating,that’s what I’d give this condo. It had every thing you could possibly want or need and it was all top of the line. All furniture and accessories were tasteful and well cleaned, it was a Wow moment. The view of the state dune park with boardwalk walking trail, the condos of Daytona, the Ponce lighthouse, the vehicles on the beach and the dolphins was always exciting and ever changing, depending on weather and time of day. The location can’t be beat. NSB is very nice, especially “downtown”. The area around the condo was the best ever for walking. The internet was fast and dependable and the TV was easy to operate. I’d stay here again if in the area. There are lots of good restaurants within a few miles. Our favorite was Off The Hook, located near Publix.”

– Susan and Jerry, Milton, DE, Inlet at Minorca Unit 903

“Thank you for offering such lovely homes. We are very happy with your company, the home owners’ lovely place and your followup and customer service when needed.”

— Roberta B., Coastal Cottage on Hill Street, 1/15 

July 1, 2014 – “Dolphin Beach House is great. Perfect location for a family. Lots of room to gather after a long day at the beach or shopping. Only a short distance to Disney and Sea World, without having to deal with the crowd when the day was over. The house was perfect for our grandchild as he could nap on the quiet lower level while the family gathered in the living area on the upper level. The house was very clean when we arrived and the kitchen was fully equipped. We have stayed at many condos, but will be “housing” from now on. Will definitely be here again.”

— William and Dawn S., Van Buren, AR, Dolphin Beach House

-Sue, Fredericksburg, IA, Altantic Beach Escape Bethune

August 23, 2011 -“Being an artist I know inputs are important in making your service better. We stayed the last week of July. But I wanted to thank you so much for your place. It was beautiful, well kept, clean and a perfect size for all of us. The pool was also a wonderful asset to all of it and walking right on the beach. I know this sounds a little weird but having things like the hangers, accessories in the kitchen, the tent in the closet, games of sorts, movies to watch on the TV, is a very home feeling comfort as well. We had my whole family staying at condos on New Smyrna Beach and from what they saw when they came to visit, I think ours in one they favored. Thank you again and we will keep you in mind for next year.”

-Lisa L., Carey, NC, Errol by the Sea 316

-Eddie and Heather Pomykala, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, Errol by the Sea 514

“I was at this house for four days in 2014 with some friends and it was amazing! I can’t say enough about this place! The house is in a perfect location right on the beach, the closest hotel is over a mile away, the beach is beautiful, the house itself is incredible and while you’re there you feel safe, secure and totally relaxed. I woke up every morning feeling energized and refreshed. If you have the chance to come to this house you should take it! I had an Incredible time and I will definitely be going back!”

— Clarence B., LaKaSa House on Hill Street, 4/14 

September 26, 2011 -“My families’ stay at Unit 42 was by far the best vacation we have had! The area is very peaceful and the room was the cherry on top! They supply you with everything you could ever need including games and toys for the kids! Thank You very much for the peace of mind while we were on vacation!”

-Julie Y., Lynchburg, OH, Shorehom 42

“This property was the PERFECT property for a beach week with a large group. It was super clean, wonderful customer service, and well maintained. The view was incredible and the location was perfect! The layout of the house was very outstanding for multiple families or large group. I would HIGHLY recommend this property and would stay again.”

— Claire H., LaKaSa House on Hill Street, 4/14 

” Great Getaway Spot With A Homey Vibe. LaKasa is a great place for a large group to stay. It is close to the grocery store, restaurants and bars. The kitchen is fully stocked and the breakfast nook is perfect for group meals or playing games. The beach is literally your back yard and the house stocks plenty of beach toys for your group to enjoy. This house has everything you need for the perfect beach vacation. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!”

— David, LaKaSa House on Hill Street, 8/14 

July 23, 2011 -“Thanks so much for a lovely week at Surfside #230!! Our family enjoyed it so much! I grew up going to New Smyrna every summer and staying in a condo and it brought back so many memories! #230 was furnished so perfectly for us since we had 5 kids with us all week! Plenty of room for all to be comfortable! Nice big table for all to eat and even do a large puzzle or play dominos together! Great time had by all! Would love to come back next year! Thanks again!”

February 2, 2014 – “Loved our stay in this condo! It has breathtaking views and is beautifully decorated. It has very convenient beach access and a heated pool. We felt right at home.

“Perfect Beach Getaway. This house was AMAZING! Perfect location right on the beach. Plenty of things to do in this area, and awesome amenities to use at the house for kids and adults (i.e.- Bikes, Outdoor grill, beach games, floatation devices, boogie boards, etc.) I would also highly suggest renting a pontoon boat for a few hours, that was an amazing experience. We also rented scooters, and went out for a night on the town that started with dinner at “The Garlic” and then drinks at local bars on Flagler Avenue. This was the perfect beach getaway and my friends and I are already planning our summer getaway for 2015 at Lakasa! I HIGHLY suggest you check this place out. Whether you are coming to Smyrna for a family vacation or a weekend getaway with friends, this is a great option.”

-Jennifer, Orlando, FL, Sea Coast Gardens III 514

February 23, 2013 -“We stayed at the Flounder House in New Smyrna Beach from January 1st (2013) through February 23rd and had a wonderful stay. The Flounder House is clean and very spacious with very comfortable beds and large TV’s. The Master Bedroom, located on the third level, has a very nice south facing private balcony which overlooks the beach and ocean. We always used the enclosed garage, located on the first level, which kept our minivan clean from the salty air. The Flounder House location is only a few seconds walk to a public walkway to enter the beach area and is on a non-driving section of New Smyrna Beach. We had a very enjoyable stay at the Flounder House and would highly recommend it. Being pet friendly made this a perfect vacation stay.”

-Michael and Dolores, Warner, NH, Flounder Beach House

May 15, 2015 –Great House! Beautifully furnished. Neat, clean & spacious! Loved the open concept! Loved all the Flat T.V.’s & great sound too! We had the choice of the drive & no drive beach right on the same street! and walked to the beach a few times. Our dog was safe inside the fenced in yard. Sitting in the Lanai was fun too with the ceiling fan giving us a nice breeze! Walking distance to restaurants & Ice cream store and 7 Eleven right on the corner. We used the bikes too! We had a great time & will recommend to our friends. Hope to return soon! Thank You.”

April 13, 2011 -“Hello all, I had looked at the paperwork to evaluate our stay and left it at the condo. It was beautiful, clean and so well equipped that is exceeded our expectations. I have already given your site to friends who are thinking of planning a trip and wonder if you have other areas of Florida covered so to speak. Our three year old grandbaby loved all the shells and brought some home in her “memory box”. I think there must have been another child there sometime before us as there was a small collection already started in the vee of the shrub bank. It was her inspiration! Thanks for the certificate for return guests. I hope the future holds another trip and I am sure we would return to Ebb Tide.”

-Laurence G., Matick, MA, Ebb Tide 106

July 23, 2013 -“The condo was great. It had plenty of room. Anything you needed for the beach was there also. We couldn’t have been any more comfortable. It was about a 4 to 5 min. walk to the beach. There was plenty of parking. There was a nice clubhouse, & great swimming pools.The general area was really nice.There was nothing commercial around, just condos & houses.That was the way I like it. It was peaceful. We liked the beach a lot more than Daytona. It was more family oriented.”

-Oliver and Echo, Gainesville, FL, Shore Villas 306S

April 18, 2011 -“I also would like to share our experience with you…..we had an amazing time! The condo is beautiful. It was so accommodating for our family. It is such a ‘family’ home!! The kitchen is abundant with all your needs. I have rented a lot of ‘vacation’ homes and have never found such a well stock kitchen. The comment on your website about not needing to go out for dinner was right, we did cook dinner twice. The beds were very comfortable and the three bathrooms worked well for all of us. I loved that we could just walk out the sliding glass door and just about land in the pool and a little further into the ocean. I was a little concerned about being ground level, but really liked it. My niece and granddaughter had plenty to keep them busy if they were inside….lots of ‘toys’….we did have some rain that week. There were no complaints from anyone, even the workout room was good. If I had only one disappointment to express, it would be the fact you could not leave any windows open, I love the sound of the ocean….but I totally understand the salt residue………….and I’m sure we will be back next year! Thank you so much!”

-Cindy and Bob C., Downers Grove, IL, Atlantic Villas 103

July 17, 2011 -“Dear Owners, I just got off the phone with your very professional and business minded ( yet friendly and personable Maggie. I hope you can see what an asset she is to your company. She has sent us numerous emails and kept in contact until we said, “This place is the one!” I hope if I ever had a company that I had employees like this lady. What a plus for a company to have. Know your property is in good hands with such employees who return calls on Sunday afternoons. Maggie was very thorough going through the things we needed to know. We’ve never stayed in New Smyrna. I was not expecting to hear from anyone but got this all settled before leaving on a business trip. We are looking forward to staying in your beautiful residence and may consider it again the next time we come. Blessings to you all.”

January 8, 2012 -“Just wanted to thank Kathi for her help in making our reservation for Tradewinds 906 for 2013. She is always so helpful and pleasant. It is always great to talk with her. To the owner, we just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your beautiful condo this winter. Loved the floor plan, the ocean right outside the door and all the mirrors where we could see the view from almost every room. The neighbors in the building were so nice to us. Everyone in the complex was wonderful to us. The staff really does a good job maintaining the property. Best of all its located in my favorite place on the planet, New Smyrna Beach. Can’t wait to come back next year! In a few weeks we’ll be in sunny Florida just like you guys. It’s always a pleasure doing business with you.”

-Margie, David, and Itty Bitty, Cincinnati, OH, Tradewinds 906

May 4, 2011 -“We decided to take a family trip for the first time in several years. Were we looking for beaches near Orlando so that we could take a day trip over. New Smyrna Beach looked like the perfect spot. Within no time at all I came upon the GREAT OCEAN CONDOS website. The website was easy to understand and very well organized. I was able to quickly select the condo “Shorehom by the Sea” and date that we were hoping for. All my questions were easily answered on the website and the staff was very helpful with any further concerns that I had. We were even given an opportunity to upgrade at no extra charge due to availability. The staff thought that the room would be better for us because we have 3 children. What GREAT customer service! Upon arrival we found the condo to be very beautiful and clean with everything that we needed. The residents and management of the condos were extremely friendly. We did not want to leave and will definitely be returning. See you soon!”

-Jennifer A., Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada, Shorehom 64

-Denny and Judith, Beavercrek, OH, Oceanwalk 3-501

July 9, 2014 – “We loved our stay with Great Ocean Condos. They were very professional and helpful. The house we stayed in was perfect for our vacation and the location couldn’t have been better. We had a minor problem with an appliance and they immediately addressed the issue and bent over backwards to take care of it as quickly as possible. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a great vacation.”

— Eileen M., Bloomingdale, OH, Atlantic Beach Escape Bethune

The views of both the sunrise from the balcony and the sunset from the entrance were spectacular! Access to the beach was just a few steps down from the deck lined with chairs to sit and relax to enjoy the beautiful blue water. See ya all next year! Thank you for making our trip a wonderful stay!”

— David and Kathy, Levittown, PA, Sea Coast Gardens II Unit 504

March 9, 2013 -“Wonderful time at the beach, sunshine and blue sky every day. Our condo was decorated with a beach theme and was stocked with all the right things in the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and provided a great nights sleep. Close to shopping and great restaurants of New Smyrna.”

-Marcia and James, Canandaieu, NY, Sea Coast Gardens III 217

“This cottage is great, and definitely as good as advertised. My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights, and were surprisingly pleased. The cottage was well designed, with 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. The rest of the living area was well designed and looked just as good as the pictures. Everything was clean, neat and well supplied. The front porch had plenty of seating and table space, and had a great view of the beach and surfers. Access to the beach was only a short walk, and no driving on the beach nor parking in front of our cottage was great. Unfortunately, we picked about the worst weather possible, with a ‘Noreasternor” outside our door and over our head, so it’s a good thing the cottage was so nice and comfy.”

— L. Dickinson, Atlantic Beach Escape Bethune, 12/14 

December 28, 2013 -“My family and I drove down from Toronto, Canada to spend some time in Florida over the Christmas break.

-Barbara King, Edgewater, FL

August 30, 2013 – “Absolutely wonderful stay for 12 days in this condo. Great location on beach and the balcony on 8th floor gave us super views. Clean, comfortable condo that had everything we needed and more. Lots of sand toys and chairs, tons of towels, sheets, dishes, pots and pans, etc. Very comfortable furniture and king bed. Pool is basically on the beach with plenty of chairs, tables and umbrellas. Liked that we could face our pool chairs towards the ocean view. Pool was also very clean along with the restrooms at the pool. Slight problem with check-in when we arrived but after one call to the GOC team, it was handled. The owner has a wonderful place and the GOC team treated us like royalty. We would definitely return to this rental.”

-Robert and Patricia, McCormick, SC, Smyrna Beach Club 816B

August 28, 2010 -“Thanks Jennifer, I have been taken care of already. Your people are awesome. I have never seen such a fast response to my inquiry. We will be renting the Flounder house Sept. 16 thru Sept 23rd. I had received a response from another property on the beach just before I confirmed the Flounder house, but decided to keep with you all because of the great service and I feel safe renting from your company. This is our first time renting a place and don’t know the ins and outs. Afraid of renting a place that doesn’t exist, etc. Again Thank You!”

-Pam C., Queen Creek, AZ, Flounder House

December 27, 2011 – “We just wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of us. We have enjoyed our stay and we got to spend Christmas with my Mom and siblings. The weather has been perfect. When we get home tomorrow night the wind chill is supposed to be -2, with 3 inches of snow. But it will be good to be home. Please thank Mrs. Wall for being such a gracious host. We took good care of her home and hope to come back someday. I will be scanning your site for a Sept/Oct vacation, so I hope to be talking with you soon. Thanks again for your help!”

-Robert and Barbara Snyder, Oneonta, NY, Errol by the Sea 410

August 18, 2010 -“I would like to thank everyone at your office for all their help making our vacation the less stressful one I’ve had in years. My family was extremely pleased with the condo, the location and everything about it. Of course I got too much sun – but it was worth it. I would like to express my thanks for the help in all the trivial matters – i.e. couldn’t open lock box – getting the wireless internet working again (my husband thanks you for that) I will recommend your company to my friends and will definitely contact you next year! We had a great time – thank you again.”

-Lynn M., Cutchogue, NY, Shorehom 14

July 17, 2011 -“Our family just returned home from our NSB vacation; it was great. Just wanted to say what a pleasure (and so simple) it was renting through your company. We truly enjoyed our stay in Ebb Tide/Unit 404. It was just as described and pictured on the webpage, and was super clean, brightly lit, and welcoming when we arrived. All of the kitchen, bath, and beach items we could possibly need were provided and in good condition. (We’ve been to beach houses before with beach chairs so rusted and worn they couldn’t be used – not the case with this unit.) Thanks to everyone, especially Maggi, Kathi, & Kelly, for your prompt and caring attention; we’d gladly use your service again. Hopefully we’ll be able to schedule another visit within the year.”

September 27, 2013- “Everything was perfect! We were so pleased with the spaciousness of the unit. My inlaws and my mom stayed with us, and we had a wonderful week. We will certainly return to stay here when we visit the area.”

-Diana, Leesburg, VA, Oceanwalk 9 Unit 604

October 1, 2013 – “This condo is ideal for a relaxing beach vacation. The location couldn’t be better! It’s right on the beach but in more of a residential area so not crowded. A short walk to restaurants and shopping either direction. The interior was very comfortable with bedrooms and baths spread out for privacy. The beds were incredibly comfortable too. The kitchen, dining and living area were perfect for cooking and hanging out with family. The balcony was perfect because it overlooks the beach and the pool but is on the 4th floor so felt very private…sun in the morning but shaded and comfortable mid-late day. The sandy beach was incredible and I was surprised at how good the boogie boarding was. I use VRBO for domestic and international vacations and will definitely go back to this condo. My only complaint is that I didn’t stay long enough to explore the intracoastal areas.”

— Gina, Longmont, CO, Wave 401

March 29, 2014- “Good morning, Melody. I wanted to thank your company for allowing us the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful home. Thanks to your company we were able reconnect as a family and create some wonderful new memories in the process. Being Floridian’s and going on many “stay-cations”, this home by far has been one of the best places we’ve stayed in, particularly in New Symrna. We try our best to respect all the places we stay in by keeping them clean, and also try to do as much as we can to help keep the property looking its best, during our stay. We look forward to the opportunity of staying at one of your properties, in the future. Again, thank you and your Great Ocean Condo’s team. Have a blessed day.”

January 2, 2014 – “We just left Dolphin Beach House yesterday. We had beautiful weather all week, what a way to spend Christmas! We left the cold weather of Indiana for the sunny beach of New Smyrna Beach. It was our second time there, having always stayed in different condos in the past. The house is so beautiful and roomy, love all of the decor. It feels like a home away from home, can’t wait to return soon!”

– Tammy S, Evansville, IN, Dolphin Beach House

August 29, 2011 -“This was the best vacation we have had at New Smyrna Beach! This condo is amazing. It is beautifully furnished and has everything you need to feel at home.

We would love to stay at New Smyrna again and will be traveling again in the next year so we’ll be in touch. We would highly recommend your services.”

-Mrs. Kerry H., Payne, OH, Shore Villas 306S

June 12, 2015 – “Beautiful on the Beach Property! This house was absolutely beautiful! You can tell the owners put a lot of thought and care into this home in order to make it the best for families/large parties. The house is VERY spacious and clean. We had a wonderful vacation at this property.

— Claire H., LaKaSa House on Hill Street 


“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Pelican and found it warm, welcoming and extremely well equipped. Design and layout of the house with bedrooms and bathrooms on both floors make it ideal for large families or groups. The quality of the fittings and furnishings are superb. The position so close to a magnificent beach and the elegant village with its galleries and variety of eating houses makes it easy to enjoy various attractions. Nearby we enjoyed seeing dolphins and manatees and had a great evening at the local theatre. We would happily return to Blue Pelican and can fully recommend it as a holiday destination.”

— “Yabs”, Blue Pelican on Maralyn House, 1/14 

August 8,2011 – “We had a marvelous week at the condo. It was beautifully decorated, clean and the view was spectacular. Everything we could have possibly needed was there for us. All of us agreed that we would love to go back.”

April 9, 2012 -“We had a WONDERFUL time we had staying in your beautiful condo! The location was perfect and the complex offered just what our family was looking for in a vacation. Sunrises in Michigan will never be the same after watching them over the ocean!”

February 1, 2013 – “Thanks for the good service! Excellent condo– enjoyed it!”

– Bill and Marianne, Keller, TX, Oceanwalk 12 Unit 206

February 16, 2013 -“This was a very good place to stay. Clean and comfortable. Many fine nearby restaurants and attractions. Description of the property was right on and the atmosphere with other residents was excellent, very friendly. I would certainly recommend this to a friend or relative. Not a long trip to St. Augustine, Daytona, or Blue Springs. All great places to visit. “

-Allan and Nina, Cape Neddick, ME, Sea Coast Condominium 407

July 14, 2013 – “We had a great time at this rental. The unit was great, it was very clean and close to the pool. We loved the Screened deck overlooking the nature trail.”

July 23, 2011 -“Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay in your condo July 2 – July 9. We had a wonderful time! We hope that you found everything appropriate after we left. We would love to return next year at the same time if it is available. Thanks again for your hospitality!”

-Duane and Sheila S., Cleveland, TN, Surfside 230

April 3, 2013 -“We had such an amazing vacation at the Turtle Mound Condo last Summer. The view was absolutely amazing!!! The condo has almost a 180 degree view of the ocean and was breath taking. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The no drive beach was also fantastic and really great for the kids to play without the worry of oncoming traffic. I also would like to thank you for your outstanding customer service, professionalism, and assistance in booking the condo. I did speak with many different companies before booking our trip and Great Ocean Condo’s was by far the friendliest, and easiest to deal with. I am looking forward to spending another week on the beach and booking it through you! Thanks so much!”

-Adam and Jennifer, Lake Mary, FL, Ocean Club at Turtle Mound 207

July 13, 2013 -” My husband and I (and our dog) have stayed in this unit twice so far, and we plan to return again and again. I grew up going to New Smyrna every year for vacation and we always stayed in Hacienda Del Sol I or II. Both complexes are small enough that you don’t feel crowded, but no so small that they don’t have the amenities (pool, club house, direct access to the beach, etc.) that we prefer. If you do not own your own unit, it can be terribly difficult to find a unit that has a updated, open and beachy feel like this one as many units feel cluttered and small with decor from the seventies. Everything is quite comfortable – there is no carpet, so you don’t have to worry about getting sand and water in it, the bathrooms and bedrooms are spacious, the decor is up-to-date. The photos really represent the actual look of the condo, so there are no surprises there. Of course the location is great with a direct ocean view, no walking to the beach, and it isn’t more than a couple of miles to all the best restaurants in New Smyrna. My favorite part of Hacienda II is the sort of landing with beach lounge chairs that is right in front of the beach wall – it is the perfect place to comfortably enjoy the ocean and read a great book. I am completely happy with this unit and would recommend it to any couple or family who just wants a great beach vacation.”

-Jessica, NC, Hacienda del Sol II 316

December 28, 2013- “This is a very clean, well equipped, and comfortable condo.”

December 5, 2013 – “To the GOC team, my wife and I would like to thank you for that initial phone call with regards to our current rental. It is hard enough trying to filter through all that is available, talking to a real person made it so much easier. We are looking forward to March, especially since we are getting a snow storm right now!!!”

– Ernie and Catherine, Cottam, Ontario, Canada, Shorehom by the Sea Unit 21

June 29, 2013- “Thank you for the beautiful condo on the beach. We created many memories with family and friends. We enjoyed your “home” and treated it as if it was our own. Blessings.”

-Chris and Dawn, Red Bank, TN, Ocean Club at Turtle Mound 202

April 7, 2012 -“We had such an awesome time on our vacation; perfect weather, nice condo, great beach, family etc. The condo was very appropriate for our family. Everyone was very comfortable. Everything we needed was there. What a pleasant surprise that there was beach toys – which we added to tent for the little one – beach towels – I could go on and on. Many memories made. Thank you and we hope to come there again!”

-Robyn and Guy Seymour, Temperance, MI, Shore Villas 306S

February 29, 2012 -“Hello, just wanted to say thank you for a lovely condo! We enjoyed it so much! Great comfy beds and great appointments throughout the whole condo!!!!

-The Bowes and The Fosters, Levittown, PA, Shorehom by the Sea 14
