Swim, sunbathe, and comb the gorgeous shores of New Smyrna Beach at this dog-friendly villa, where you'll enjoy a private patio, a one-block walk to the beach, and shared amenities that include two outdoor pools, a sauna, tennis courts, and a gym!

This home is located in Sea Woods, a private community of New Smyrna Beach that sits one block from the sand and cool ocean waves. Take morning walks to collect seashells on the beach, return home for an invigorating gym-and-sauna session, and spend tranquil afternoons swimming in one of the two pools (one of which is heated).

Make yourself at home amid plush furnishings, central AC, and free WiFi for sharing photos and watching the tides.

My kids, the dog and I enjoyed our stay there. So close to the beach, the pool was always empty which work out perfectly with social distancing. Lot of trails with shade to go running with my dog. The house very comfortable even though sometimes the AC will go off, we enjoy watching movies or just relaxing in the living room.
We brought a crate for our dog to leave her there when we went to the beach. She slept there all the time.
We were able to BBQ one day and was thankful the grill have enough gas. Overall, very comfortable place.
The beach however does not have a lifeguard, so swim carefully. Since it is not a public beach, there isn't so many people in there so you can keep your social distance. Perfect for a relax vacation.

While this is an older unit that can use some upgrades, Buddy’s Place is in an excellent location (close to pool and beach entrance), and provided everything we could want. We will definitely rent again!

We LOVED our stay here! It perfectly accommodated the 5 of us for an extended weekend. There was plenty of space to move around but still be together. We came to visit my siblings. For a comparison, my sister stayed down the street in a one room, small kitchen, 1 bathroom, 4 person suite...while we had essentially a full living space for roughly the same price! I couldn't have asked for more! And the walk to the beach was so quick.. 5-8 minutes on a private path that went right to a crosswalk and then a bridge directly onto the beach. The only issues I had was making sure the children didn't get too far ahead to the busy road and try to cross, they were so excited how close it was! That and the TV in the one bedroom we couldn't figure out how to work it.. Other than that, perfection! I went for runs in the morning, confident and secure that I was safe. My cousin went to the gym facility. The equipment was a little dated, but in perfectly good working condition and not crowded whatsoever. If I had one criticism, and this was only because we went during the Covid-19 concern and we did an extra thorough cleaning to ensure our safety. We found several touch points on the pocket doors, dishwasher handle and front door that could have used some extra attention. However, we were also being extremely vigilant and diligent in what we touched and where, so in doing our own wipe down we found some spots that most people wouldn't normally notice. Otherwise, you could tell whomever cleaned they took their time and cleaned the place very well. The linen closet was well stocked with towels and pillows and this place was just very homey on the whole. Would definitely stay here again if available when we're visiting again!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jennifer. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

Great location, all the comforts you need, beautiful trails and trees, and best of all, dog friendly! We loved Buddy’s place and are so thankful it was close to our friends who live in NSB, the beach, and dog beach. We had a great time and hope to book again for our yearly NSB family vacation.

We enjoyed our stay at Buddy’s Place very much. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for a great 5 night stay. The property manager was extremely helpful and responsive.

This villa was wonderful! Perfect for four people, comfortable, updated, well equipped. Short two minute walk to beach, one minute to the pool! Nestled in a canopy of old oaks, meticulously maintained.

We had a wonderful 11 night stay here in February, and would definitely come back. The apartment has all amenities and is in close walking distance to a lovely beach. There is also a pool and tennis courts which we enjoyed very much. The area is quiet, safe and the neighbors were very friendly. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well. It's in close driving distance to Flagler Ave and Canal St, the main downtown areas of New Smyrna. Be sure to visit the Mon Delice bakery when you are there!

Nice big 2 bed/bath bungalow, sliding doors leading to patio with nice garden (and BBQ).
Sliding door in Master is a disaster and needs to be fixed/replaced. Couldn't use it, unfortunately.
Kitchen is well stocked, but cutlery was not washed well at all.
I know it is likely the past users, but cleaning staff should check cleanliness when emptying dishwasher (paid lots of money for cleaning so they should do this).
I know other guests mentioned the fan in the spare bedroom not turning off, was the same for us although we didn't use the room as it was just the 2 of us.
I believe past guests also mentioned the tap water for drinking. There is a really bad smell/taste when you first turn on the tap. Letting the water run for a minute fixed it, but we bought bottled water just in case. Good water pressure. Left sink is clogged!
We loved the tennis courts and the pool. Location is just perfect (<5 minute walk to beach on private path).
Nice quiet area (except for the neighbor's A/C) with great natural setting.
Great place, just needs a little TLC from the owner to make it a 5-Star place.
Manager response:
We wish this guest had reached out to us during their stay so we could have addressed their issues. Our local operations manager leaves a greeting card and a business card in the unit for all guests to take advantage of. All of the tap water in the area has a distinct smell, the sink has been unclogged, and the fan is on an automatic switch. We hope to host this guest again soon!

Nice and clean place to stay. Walking distance from the ocean. The community pool was nice and clean. Plenty of parking space. The only thing I did not care for was the management company and cleaning service. The condo was not clean when we moved in. The toilets and showers were not cleaned cleaned right and there were lots of dirts under the beds. The cleaning person had done fast job. This is not good specially if you are being charged extra for cleaning. The manager did not know who I was when I called for help. I had to give him my address and name 2-3 times to find me in the system. He kept saying that he has too many units to take car of. The message to the owner: you have a very nice place. Change the cleaning and management company and you will be a 5 star place.
Manager response:
We are very sorry this guest felt their home was not properly cleaned. We have no record of this guest reaching out to us our local manager; we would have happily addressed the matter had we been contacted via the number provided on the card left in the unit. We hope to have another chance to impress our guest!

We loved this place

We slept well, it was nice and quiet. Well insulated.
It was also nice that we had our own restrooms. We went out a couple of nights and came back to the Villa and played a game called Catan. We enjoyed our stay at your Villa.
