“A wonderful getaway!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Spent Saturday night, August 31st at The Longboard Inn. My boyfriend and I wanted a quick getaway (100 miles from home) and a change of scenery over the holiday weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, attention to detail and hospitality. John and Dee are great hosts and served a delicious breakfast! We have already discussed returning to the Inn with friends. As for New Smyrna Beach, we loved the shops and restaurants, lots of unique boutiques to wander through. We did not care for the beach as we like to look for shark's teeth and shells, and NSB does not have any shells like our beach does.

I was very happy with follow-up that I received from the Innkeeper.
I thought I had left something in my room and he called me with interest in helping me to locate it.
Therefore, I change my previous rating from "very good" to "excellent"!

First time we have stayed B & B in USA but we agree with all the previous comments about how welcoming John and Dee are and how quaint and individual the rooms are. We only had 2 nights here but we could not have been treated any better from the welcome drink to the lovely breakfast in their wonderful dining room. It was as if we were really houseguests. Really nice sitting on the decking outside the rooms especially as the temperature was in the 90's. A lovely relaxing end to our 16 night tour of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Room Tip: All the rooms are individual and I'm sure are equally comfortable.

We stayed 1 night in this wonderful B&B. We were there July 27, 2013. We were warmly welcomed and were instantly made to feel as if we were treasured guests to their home. We stayed in the Coral Sky room (#6) We loved having our own entrance and small outside sitting area right outside our door. We had early coffee outside and enjoyed the shade from all the beautiful trees.
Breakfast had some delicious breads and coffee cake, followed by eggs benedict and fresh fruit.
We will defiantly stay here again. We highly recommend this B&B.

It takes a great deal for me to feel that a place is so clean that I can relax and feel at home. I was absolutely blown away with the cleanliness of the room and common areas. I was so comfortable! In addition, the owners have many nice touches to add to your comfort in the rooms that in my experience, other B&B's don't have. The rooms were clearly well thought out with lots of convenient seating, tables and such to help a guest feel at home. And the hospitality and breakfast were exceptional! Just a wonderful experience altogether!!!

Our second visit at The Longboard Inn was better then our first visit!
John and Dee are great host and hostess.
Miss Betty loaned us a puzzle to put together while we were there.
We enjoyed our stay so much we extended our stay from 10 days to 12 days/nights.
The inn keepers made our vacation very relaxing and frustration free.
John is very knowledgeable about places/locations/directions around New Smyna Beach,Florida to visit,willing to help his guests out.
Dee is an excellent cook,the scoans/topping are very yummy,looking forward to enjoying more on our next visit.
Thanks again John and Dee
Thanks Miss Betty for your kindness :)
