'Kingfisher Cottage' is a completely independent Key West style one bedroom cottage only blocks to the ocean and abutting the Indian River Canal. It is behind our main house, with tons of privacy, amidst a lush, tropical landscape. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets over the Indian River Estuary in this charming retreat. Close to shopping, surfing, birding, fishing, and great restaurants and pubs. Our cottage has been newly furnished with an extremely comfortable queen "cloud memory foam mattress" .

The space

Our space is well situated in that it is a few blocks from the Ocean for sunbathing, close to the Indian River and the Inter-Coastal and also is on the Indian RiverCanal/Estuary. See fish jumping, egrets, herons, kingfishers and other water fowl right from the cottage and the large screened in porch. Enjoy the magnificent sunsets each night over the Estuary.

There are opportunities for fishing, all types of boating and Kayaking on the River, Canals and Atlantic Ocean, wonderful bird watching due to the Estuary. Or perhaps visit Cape Canaveral, a short ride away. There may even be a rocket launch during your stay which can be seen in the skies over New Smyrna from pretty much anywhere.
Some people like to visit our many thrift and antique shops or take a day trip to Daytona Beach.
Orlando is only about an hour away.

Guest access

Guests have a private parking space in our driveway, and a private walkway leading to the backyard and the cottage.

Interaction with guests

We are seasoned Airbnb Superhosts as we also have several listings in beautiful Sullivan, Maine on the coast of Flanders Bay overlooking Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain.

Please check out our many reviews of those rooms and you will find that we love being Airbnb Superhosts.... We especially enjoy meeting new people and have hosted guests from all over the world during the summer and fall months in Maine. Being able to provide a lasting memory for travelers is amongst our special delights.

Now we are happy to share another incredibly beautiful place as we have recently moved to New Smyrna Beach as residents. It is a joy having this cottage to rent because we are able to host others in a completely new tropical environment, that is every bit as special as our other listings..

Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and fun as possible so please let us know if there is anything you need. We will try to answer your questions but will also respect your privacy.

Other things to note

You may obtain a pass as a guest to go onto the Drive On Beach near famous Flagler Avenue, or from 27th Avenue which is closest to our cottage.

- Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and as special as possible while you enjoy beautiful New Smyrna Beach. If there is anything you need please let us know and we will try to accommodate your requests.

Unfortunately the County of Volusia charges a 6 percent vacation rental fee which we are required to collect on all rentals. We try to include this in on special offers to you after your request to book but if we simply accept your reservation then the fee is due upon arrival.

So that others coming after you can enjoy the same level of hospitality, we do have a few requests for you.

*Please do not sit on any furniture with wet bathing suits.
*Our cottage has accommodations for only two adults. Because our property is located adjacent to water we cannot allow guests with children.
*No candles, and no smoking please.
*Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets
*Washer and Dryer is available for weekly stays or longer.
* Please use the hose off that is in the back of the cottage when returning from the beach so as not to track much sand into the cottage. Remove shoes when entering
* Kingfisher Cottage is on the same property as our family home. While we want our guests to thoroughly enjoy themselves, we cannot accommodate those who want to party while hanging out at the cottage.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - There are just a few steps to get into the cottage.
Pet(s) live on property - We keep our cockapoo in our own home or on a leash if we are in the yard.

The accommodations were lovely with a pleasant canal view. A little small but nice and clean. Parking a little difficult which was made more difficult due to brush from Hurricane. A little far from Flagler Street, and a long walk to the beach. Could not find bicycle rental in town (as in years past).

Response from Marion & Pat:
It was nice to have you visit with us. Just a quick note to say that there our driveway itself was not obstructed, we've never had a complaint about the space there for our guests, and our yard was free of debris, despite the many branches that came down in Irma. We worked hard to get the yard in shape for your visit since you wished nevertheless to stay during this clean-up time. (though we offered to cancel the listing without penalty due to the Storm). It does take the County and Town a while to remove the brush in front of the houses in our town, but that is to be expected after such a major hurricane. As for the walk to the beach, we do accurately indicate on the listing how far the beach is ( half a mile) and that some folks might want to drive there, though others like the walk. Finally, it's clear to see that the Flagler restaurant district is also on the beach side, as is our location, and is just a short hop by car. Those who want to be within walking distance would not have the beauty of the Canal and the Inter-Coastal right outside their cottage nor the crowds and noise.

Perfect location and great hosts. I proposed to my fiancé during this trip and they could not have been more accommodating. They even bought us a complementary bottle of champagne. From the cottage, we were able to go kayaking at the national seashore and shop at Flagler beach within 5-10 minutes. It was always nice to retreat back to the quiet of the cottage at the end of our day.

The Kingfisher Cottage is exactly as it appears on-line. It is very quiet and peaceful with a lovely tropical yard. The cottage itself is very clean and cozy, well decorated and well stocked with everything we needed. We loved having close access to Flager Avenue with the shops, restaurants and bars and the beach, but then being able to return to such a peaceful retreat. We hope to stay here again in the future.

Had a great time. Nice and quiet location. We did not aim to be near the beach but it was still within a walk. Hosts were very helpful.

Marion & Pat's Kingfisher Cabin is the ideal place for a quiet, restful vacation. It's a beautiful and comfortable place to stay, with a great backyard patio that faces a small creek and a large game preserve. The neighborhood is very quiet and restful, but also centrally located and close to the beach and many local attractions. They were great hosts, very helpful but unobtrusive and pleasant and responsive throughout the whole booking process. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful little cottage in a quite private area. The grounds are beautiful and surrounded by nature. The place is also very clean. If you are looking for a place to stay in New Smyrna this is a great one.
