From Charlie Brown reruns to sweet potato casserole, nothing is as cozy as the classic American holiday, Thanksgiving. While everyone loves special holiday traditions, there are some in need of a fresh twist. Instead of dusting every nook of your home and searching for spare chairs for arriving family, take a laid-back approach to the holiday season with a stay in New Smyrna Beach. Our vacation condos and homes are already pristine, sanitized, and fully equipped to host your holiday stay. Follow our five tips below and you’ll soon be feeling #thankful that you opted for a relaxing Thanksgiving at the beach.

1.  Pick a Getaway that Feels like Home

While we all love cranberry sauce, it’s truly the warmth of family and home that make Thanksgiving endearing. The aroma of buttery mashed potatoes, your favorite faces around the table, and a cozy atmosphere are the moments held dear in memory. Just like your own house, our vacation rentals offer the same inviting presence – but in a beach destination! If warm hues and comfortable furniture speak to your soul, you won’t find a getaway more fitting than Atlantic Villas 301 or Oceanwalk 2-601. Those who love a modern space will find it impossible to choose between Colony Beach Club 249 or Daytona Towers Ten 2005. Looking for a classic, beach cottage? Sea Coast Gardens II 304 and Colony Beach Club 118 have the coastal charm you love.

2. Choose a Vacation Rental that Suits Your Group

Whether you give thanks with the whole family or just your significant other, you’ll find yourself grateful for any time spent in New Smyrna Beach with the people you love. The key to an amazing holiday vacation is choosing a rental that’s right for your group. If siblings and in-laws are joining the festivities, a private beach home is the perfect place to usher in holiday cheer. Aside from spacious layouts, one of the best perks of vacation homes is that you don’t have to share a single amenity. Parking, pool, beach access, and more are all exclusive to just you! If you hate the thought of leaving your fur-baby alone on Thanksgiving, browse our selection of condos and homes that welcome Fido too. Whether you stay somewhere close to Flagler’s Black Friday sales or in an oceanfront getaway on the non-driving beach, the best holiday memories await you in whichever place you select.

3. Find a Kitchen You Love

If you’re going to spend most of Thanksgiving morning in the kitchen, it better be a gorgeous one! From stainless steel appliances to ocean view kitchen windows, our vacation rentals boast of the best spaces to prep dinner in. Those with an affinity for the white, modern aesthetic will love cooking in Sunrise 606 and Sea Coast Gardens III 201. If you need space for a variety of side dishes, choose a kitchen with ample room like Atlantic Villas 103 or Daytona Ashley Penthouse 4. Trying to avoid too many cooks in the kitchen? Mermaid’s Playground eliminates holiday chaos as it provides two large, updated kitchens on the first and second floor. While every kitchen is fully equipped, we do recommend packing items that aren’t household essentials. Holiday place-settings, heirloom serving platters, or special cooking gadgets are things you’ll want to bring from home!

4. Discover Amenities that Enhance Your Holiday

The best part about Thanksgiving, and all holidays for that matter, is that they’re intended to be elaborately over-the-top. Treat yourself to a NSB vacation rental with the bells and whistles you love. If you come from a long line of coffee connoisseurs, pick a getaway that’s equipped with a high-end coffee maker. Most of our condos and homes provide Keurigs; however, there are a select few that hold the envied Nespresso maker. With this amenity, you’ll be able to enjoy homemade lattes with your pumpkin pie! Smart TVs are another popular feature to look for when selecting your holiday home. With cable to watch the Macy’s Day Parade, music services for dinner ambiance, and video streaming services to end the day with your favorite shows, Smart TVs are a high-tech feature your vacation needs. Looking for a specific amenity? Our property descriptions detail everything each condo or home has to offer.

5. Stay Near Your Favorite NSB Areas

From the Intercoastal Waterway to the Atlantic’s non-driving shore, we have over 300 vacation rentals located in your favorite NSB spots. Those seeking a quiet, family-only escape will gravitate toward our condos on the southern end of New Smyrna Beach. Ocean Club at Turtle Mound, Southwind, and Shorehom by the Sea are complexes farthest from the crowds. Nature lovers will find a peaceful retreat in Oceanwalk as it is nestled within a natural estuary just across from the beach. If you’ve come armed with Christmas lists, stay in Golden Arms or Oceania Beach Club as they’re both walking distance from shopping on Flagler Avenue. Discover complexes close to your favorite areas of NSB here!
