We're celebrating summer in NSB and May 27th, is National Sunscreen Day! We can’t talk about summer without mentioning Sunscreen. I moved to Florida 30 years ago from a small island in the Pacific Northwest, where you don’t tan - you rust. I learned quickly to respect the Florida sun. My first day at the beach was followed by a week of pain and I swore to never get burned again. Last summer's sunscreen should be discarded and it’s time to start off fresh. The sun in New Smyrna Beach is intense!  I wear SPF 50 every day during the summer, I still have a golden glow and healthy skin too! Want to enjoy the beaches of New Smyrna every day?  Connect with us and start your search for your New Smyrna Beach home.

Surfing through my photos, and deleting a lot of them to free the space on the server, I ran into this photo, taken in our neighbor city to the south – New Smyrna Beach. I have always wondered how on earth could there be such a difference between Daytona and New Smyrna Beach. If you judge by the looks, Daytona is more impressive with more highrises, more city-like look and feel. Daytona is a bigger place. And you would expect much more outdoor life in Daytona than in New Smyrna Beach. I am not sure about it. Of course, when Daytona is packed for the events like Bikeweek, or for races, there is hardly a place to hide here. New Smyrna is not a big party place, at least not to the extent Daytona is. New Smyrna Beach used to praise itself for not having bikers, but this is now history. Bike...

New Smyrna Beach is our neighbor to the South. But it is a remote neighbor. It is on the other side of Ponce Inlet, and this is where our part of the Intracoastal, called Halifax River, ends and Indian River begins. New Smyrna Beach presents itself as a quiet relaxing place away from Daytona’s buzz, but within 20-minute drive. This a bit over 20K residents coastal town is filled with vacationers – 1 Mil visitors a year. You will love those beachside tree-lined streets, have fun on Flagler Ave. Like Daytona, they have a lot of condos on the beach. We drove to New Smyrna Beach on Sunday to look at some properties coming up for the auction in October. Driving along the ocean, I suggested that we stop at Chases on The Beach, a very popular oceanfront establishment with live music and a pool...

I Will Never Pay Full Price… I have known this guy for 5-6 years. He is a retired college professor. He and his wife have bought a unit in condo-hotel and live there since then. Sufficient to say that I do not know of anyone in Daytona area, who has money and lives in the condo-hotel. Time from time he would start talking about buying, and every time he smiles from ear to ear and tells me that this should be a deal. And then a new listing pops up in St. Regis subdivision of Venetian Bay in New Smyrna Beach. Exclusive area of Venetian Bay, all houses are over 2,500 sq. ft., slate roof, pavers in the driveway, masonry. The house is on the lake, absolutely gorgeous. Viking appliances, and restaurant grade Viking hood… The house was originally purchased for over $600K. They listed it at onl...
