'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" .
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.
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.
The State of Florida and the County of Volusia each assess a General Sales and Use Tax total which is added to the listing.
- 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.
