About Tim & Maureen Abblett
We are a retired couple. We enjoy the scenic beauty of the beach and the ocean. We are thrilled to be able to offer our vacation home to you for your vacation on beautiful New Smyrna Beach. We take great pride in this property, and insist in only the best when furnishing the interior for all of us to enjoy.
Tim & Maureen Abblett purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Tim & Maureen Abblett chose New Smyrna Beach
The Castle Reef Condominium complex is one of the most sought after vacation sites in Florida. This area is unique because it blends the edge of technology found at Cape Kennedy to historic Sugar Mill ruins in New Smyrna Beach. And with world class attractions like Daytona Beach and Walt Disney World and you are in the center of it all. You can easily visit any of these places within minutes from your doorway, or just relax and let the world go away.
What makes this Condo unique
There is an unbelievable variety of restaurants shopping, and attractions to choose from, all within a short drive from this vacation home. You can have walks on the beach, surf fish, watch the kids play on the sand (on a non-driving beach), and many many more activities are available for you to enjoy. This is truly a fantastic place for a vacation with your family. You will want to come back often!

Thankyou, hurry back

Parking - The assigned parking spot is super convenient; it’s the closest spot to the elevator.
Cleanliness - The condo was spotless! We were pleased.
Security - The door includes a keypad which worked flawlessly. We were pleased that the door also had a manual latch and peep hole as in hotel rooms.
Amenities - The unit itself had plenty of amenities. We appreciated the 3 beach chairs, and the kids enjoyed the sand toys. My son used the boogie board every day. I tried using one of the umbrellas but I was worried it was too windy and I didn’t want to break it so I never ended up using it. I noticed the “pros” used a canopy instead, which would have been nice although a lot heavier to carry.
My son was so pleased to see the unit also had a Play Station with a handful of games he played. The board games (Monopoly and a couple others) and deck of cards was a real nice touch.
The tv in the living room is a smart tv and also includes cable. The tv in the bedroom had a roku as well as cable. We really appreciated the smart tv/roku, and also flipped through the cable channels at night before bed.
The condo also has some really nice amenities outside of the unit. The pool is simply fabulous! It’s large, heated, and (my favorite part) overlooks the ocean.
The 3 shuffle board courts are really nice and we played each night. I really appreciated that all the supplies were right by the courts and you didn’t have to go to the office (as I’ve seen elsewhere) to check them out.
The two grills by the pool were appreciated. We used them a couple nights; I was pleasantly surprised that the grills were always clean.
The beach is simply amazing! We appreciated that the condo has a hose to use to wash off in addition to the usual wash off station (that doesn’t have as high of water pressure).
In summary, the condo exceeded our expectations and we had a fabulous vacation! I could tell, and very much appreciated, that the owners take pride in the unit and have an appreciation for quality. The mattress in the bedroom had a bamboo top on it and seemed like a very good quality mattress. Even the fold out mattress was comfortable. The TVs were good quality. The plates/cups were nice and not just something cheap. The fans did a good job of moving air. The deck furniture was the nicest we saw (several others had chairs that looked like they were homemade using pvc pipe).
We had such a great time! We can't wait to return!!!
Wow, thank you! We try hard to exceed your expectations!
Another Wonderful Vacation @ 520
After having a really great summer vacation last year, we were thinking about maybe staying at another place this year to try something new. We were so glad we didn’t. Castle Reef 520 seems like home. It is the perfect place to stay. We love the location, cleanliness and the comfort. We could easily live in NSB year round. Thank you so much for making our time at your place rewarding! We hope to be back many more times. We appreciate you Tim & Maureen 😊
We appreciate you too. You treated our vacation home like it was yours.
Thankyou soooo much for staying with us
Tim & Maureen.
Perfect Summer Getaway
Place was exceptionally clean and well-equipped. Perfect size for our mother-daughter trip. Had coffee, beach towels, beach chairs, and easy to use WiFi and cable. Lovely patio with a beautiful view of the ocean. Great pool and shuffleboard. We spent most of our time on the beach, which was perfect. Not too crowded. Loved New Smyrna Beach, the complex as a whole, and especially unit 520. We hope to be back!
Wow, we’re so glad you enjoyed our vacation beachside home!
