“Awesome Spot for Family Time”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

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.

Stayed March 2013, travelled with family

New Smyrna is a great vacation if you want to be away from crowds and go to a real family friendly vacation. Gorgeous beaches. Max on beach in front of our condo 40, max on weekend. Southwind is a great condo, specifically unit 703. Great for families with children. Most condos are bare, this condo has left so many things in the room to make you trip nice. Spices, oils for cooking, salt, etc. For kids, we had a six and three year old, it was great. Bed rails for two beds, booster seat, noticed pack n play, tons of toys and books and videos for kids, books and videos for adults, two rocker recliners, plenty of towels (provided beach towels), closet FULL of beach things, noodles, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, sand toys. Beds very comfortable, TV in every bedroom and LR. Heated pool year round, lawn out front for playing, gated parking, great beach. Beautifully decorated while comfortable. They really went out of their way to make their condo easy and comfortable. We could pack half the things we normally take on vacation. Very, comfortable and kid friendly for sure. No long wait at elevator; super fun.

New Smyrna is the best kept secret in Florida. Just a lazy beach side community with fantastic restaurants, antique shops and more. Check out Southwind especially number 1004 its gorgeous.
