With three teens in tow, we headed to New Smyrna Beach for a week to unwind and that is what we got. The condos are ON the beach and the unit we rented, #201, was super clean and had three spacious bedrooms. This is a corner unit so there are windows expanding the entire space. The beach was pristine with lots of shells and you could walk forever which is what we did every morning. We used the kitchen for breakfast and lunches and then went out for dinner at some good and some so-so places.
The pool on the premises was always crystal clean and inviting with plenty of chairs. The beach pad was a perfect spot to be on the beach without having to bring your things to the sand. It was wonderful and breezy...
As with most condos on New Smyrna, the population of folks here are in retirement so activities were card games and shuffle board but they were all super polite and didn't mind the kids antics in the pool. We rented a surf board but otherwise, the unit had a lot of boogie boards and skim boards and beachy stuff that we didn't need to purchase any other things.
Southwind was just what this over scheduled family of 5 needed to come back together, share three meals together and deflate oceanside.
Unit #201 could use new sheets and a lot more beach towels that have some substance.
