Your flight is booked, the rental car is secured, and your heart soars at the thought of beach days ahead. There’s only one question that needs to be settled before you can pack your bags: Do you book a vacation condo or home? Vacation rentals are the modern traveler’s accommodation of choice, but with such a wide variety, picking the best one is tough! Instead of scrolling for hours online, discover what type of New Smyrna Beach rental is ideal for your upcoming trip. Regardless whether you book a condo or home, any time spent in NSB is full of sandy bliss.

What Size is Your Traveling Group?

We’re all for creating vacation memories with family… so long as everyone has enough space and privacy! The size and ages of your traveling group dictates whether a condo or home is more suitable to your party. Our inventory of NSB vacation rentals provide plenty of options for either preference.

If your beach trip is exclusive to you and immediate family, we recommend booking a condo. A standard vacation condo has two bedrooms and bathrooms and accommodates 4-6 guests. While smaller than homes, these getaways are certainly not tiny! Condos such as Oceanwalk 17-605 or Atlantic Villas 103 are over 2,100 square feet. If you’re stealing away for a couple’s retreat, we recommend a one-bedroom rental. Colony Beach Club and Sea Coast Gardens have plenty of cute, cottage-like options for a romantic getaway.

When the whole gang is finally going on vacation together, the only way to celebrate is in a beach house. From family reunions to catch-up-time with your friend group, our New Smyrna Beach homes are equipped to host between 6-15 guests. Sea Castle and Smyrna Fish are ideal for multi-family trips. Both homes have 4+ bedrooms and bathrooms, spaces ideal for children, and phenomenal oceanfront locations. Grand Oasis is another option ideal for who crave privacy as the home is divided into three separate sections that all share a pool. If you prefer a cozier space, Pelican’s Cove and Smyrna Dreams have one-story layouts that draw everyone together.

What Do You Value Most on Vacation?

Sun-kissed skin, afternoons in a beach chair, and ice cream every night are just a few essentials that make up the perfect beach trip. Aside from these staples, specific amenities can elevate your stay, and it’s important you book based on them! Do you love constant entertainment and outdoor fun? Choosing a vacation rental with activities nearby is a must. If you’ve come to NSB to mentally clock out, we recommend staying in a quiet, private getaway.

Lots of Outdoor Amenities and Things to Do

Those that come prepared with an activity itinerary are best suited for a condo. These beach retreats come with fun perks thanks to the complexes they reside in. From pristine pools to tennis courts to clubhouse movie theatres, condominiums ensure guests are never without a good time. Ebb Tide’s luxurious amenities precede themselves as the complex offers an oceanfront pool, hot tub, BBQ grills, tennis court, exercise room, sauna, and exclusive clubhouse. Those traveling with kids will want to stay in Oceanwalk as it has multiple pools, clubhouses, tennis courts, an exercise room, movie theatre, and nature boardwalk.

Privacy and Amenities You Don’t Have to Share

With all of life’s hustle and bustle, sometimes you need to get away from the noise. Private home rentals provide guests a quiet refuge where they can rest without interruption. When you stay in a place like Blue Yonder Beach House, privacy is all yours. The pool, beach access, parking, grill, and more are at your exclusive use. If you’re traveling with young children, you’ll love having a backyard so they can play with little supervision. Discover the top NSB home rentals here, and book for a peaceful escape.

What Type of View Do You Prefer?

The best part about staying at the beach is the view of course! There’s no feeling quite as surreal as waking up to the Atlantic’s crashing waves. While everyone unanimously wants the ocean outside their window, each guest has a different preference on what that looks like.

Sweeping View of the Ocean

If you want to see the coastal blue waters in their expansive glory, you’re best suited for a condo. From 3rd story units to penthouse getaways, hundreds of our condos grant guests a bird’s eye view of the sea. If you’re truly a salt-water lover, we recommend staying in an oceanfront corner unit such as Sea Coast Gardens III 201 or Smyrna Beach Club 814B. Bring a glass of wine and an easy read to either of their furnished balconies!

Ocean in Your Backyard

Some love to look at the ocean, and others love to BE in it! If you want to see the ebbing tide not far from your back door, a beach house is for you. Our oceanfront homes have private beach access allowing guests to come and go with ease. Sea Castle pampers groups with two oceanfront decks all lined with beach loungers. Island Time allows guests to enjoy scenic dining at its outdoor table for six. If you’re having too much fun at the shore beyond, just set it up as a snack break station.

With your group size, preferred amenities, and view preference determined, you’re more than ready to book a New Smyrna Beach vacation! You can sort our website by direct oceanfront, ocean view, pet-friendly, luxury, private home rentals, and more until you find your dream getaway. Need vacation planning assistance?
