Tucked away behind our 1920 historic main home overlooking the pool, coquina rock waterfall and tropical gardens. ALSO AVAILABLE  for rent on the  property next door is our historic CARRIAGE HOUSE. Renting both The Coastal Cabana + The Carriage House would be ideal for three couples, a large family or group of friends.

Includes the use of private swimming pool, pool floats, heated outdoor shower, gas grill, rustic barbecue barn, free wireless Internet, cable television and tropical gardens backyard area with a secluded fire pit nestled in a wall of bamboo. Just a few short steps to the RIVER for fishing or kayaking and a continuous sidewalk to Flagler Avenue and BEACH (bicycle 10 minutes or drive  3 minutes) and nearby boat rental and public boat ramp (2 minutes).

The Coastal Cabana is one level and has no stairs. Please contact us about bringing a dog; prior approval is necessary and there is an additional fee. 
We suggest an easy, fun day by packing a picnic lunch, surf boards, boogie boards, fishing poles and other gear in the car and drive right onto our smooth-surfaced beach from the nearby Flagler Avenue beach entrance. The beach has a gentle incline into the water, making it easy to wade, swim or ride the waves. 
We will make every effort to create a getaway experience that is charming and memorable.

A little bit of heaven !

We stayed a little shy of 3 months. Tom and Deb where very helpful in every way. Friendly very helpful In Every request or need. Bungalow was very , very clean. If your looking for a very nice, clean place stay here. Tom and Deb will help you in every way possible.

Peaceful, Tropical Oasis - FIVE STARS!

The best host and hostess ever! First Class accomodations all the way! I am a traveling nurse and plan to tell colleagues and my agencies about this place! A comfortable, super clean, well appointed, tropical paradise. Why would you stay in a boring, noisy hotel / condo when a peaceful oasis with kitchenette, outdoor shower, indoor shower and TROPICAL POOL & GARDENS are just steps outside your door? Seriously! I loved the Cabana and will stay again!

Holiday stay

Very pleased with our stay and would stay there again. Deb and Tom were very friendly and easy to deal with. Clean and well maintained. We were able to bring our small dog and there was a fenced in yard she could play in. The back yard/pool/grilling area is large and very nice. We were visiting family in the area so we really just slept there at night - and the bed was great! Have already recommended their rental(s) to family members.

A taste of the tropics...

In authentic Florida, quiet, relaxing, comfortable, conveniently located, clean. Gracious and welcoming hosts!

Perfect Beach Getaway

Deb and Tom were the ideal hosts! They welcomed us late at night when we arrived and were so helpful the entire trip, from quickly responding to texts to suggesting the best local restaurants and bars. The Coastal Cabana was so homey yet classy. It was a comfortable stay in the heart of New Smyrna. Located less than a 5 minute drive from anything and everything, we had a blast! We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you so much!
