Why Debra Exum chose New Smyrna Beach
"The Coastal Cabana" is ideally located between the beach, intercoastal waterway and historic downtown New Smyrna Beach. A quick four miles to 1-95 and just over an hour drive to the Orlando Airport, Disney World, Epcot Center, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and other Orlando theme parks. AVAILABLE for rent on the property next door is our historic CARRIAGE HOUSE, a charming two bedroom apartment that sleeps four. VRBO list https://www.vrbo.com/642087 Renting both spaces would be ideal for three couples, a large family or group of friends. "The Coastal Cabana" is decorated beautifully with tasteful art, 750 thread count sheets, high quality bedding and lovely furnishings. It has the feel of a classy, well appointed bed and breakfast but with more privacy. The 10 ft. ceilings add to the spacious feel and ambiance. Tile throughout and area rugs offer a low maintenance, airy, and clean living area. The front windows overlook the pool area and the back window overlooks the tropical gardens and barbecue barn. As our guests, you are welcome to use the barbecue barn for grilling and relaxation, the swimming pool, fire pit and hot outdoor shower. ENJOY! Deb & Tom are friendly, personable hosts and always available to offer suggestions on restaurants, activities, art galleries, music venues, antique shops, specialty stores, festivals, beach parking, local parks, golf courses, veterinarians and much more! "The Coastal Cabana" is located in the heart of the New Smyrna Beach Historic district. By all accounts, Faulkner Street is one of the prettiest historic streets in town. Lined with ancient oak trees and nestled along the Indian River, it's the perfect area for casual river fishing or a three minute walk to the downtown Canal Street restaurants and shops. The weekly Saturday Farmers Market (7:00 a.m. - 12 noon) is located in Old Fort Park between Canal & Washington. Most weekends, historic Canal Street offers monthly venues such as art festivals & antique car show.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The Coastal Cabana features pool-side relaxation and stellar outdoor amenities including hot outdoor shower, expansive tropical gardens, majestic live oak trees, large gas grill, covered barbecue barn and secluded firepit creating a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. Feel free to tow along your boat or RV. The parking pad and secondary driveway offer rare premium parking. The screened in swimming pool offers a cool splash after a hot day at the beach. The heated outdoor shower is ideal for rinsing off the salt and sand. Take a leisurely stroll down to the neighborhood Dolphin View Restaurant for some fried shrimp, oysters or a fresh fish sandwich. Or, take a quick walk or bicycle ride down to Canal Street for a beer or grub at the Half Wall Sports Bar. Little's Drug Company has been in operation since 1922 and is a throwback to simpler times. Little's Soda Fountain and Restaurant offers a full breakfast and lunch menu and the best ice cream sundaes around. The Golden Biscuit Restaurant is a traditional favorite for breakfast and lunch. For some great live music and an evening of fun, visit Yellow Dog Eats. Jason's Deli is one of our favorites because the menu offers something for everyone. Joe's Sub Shop makes great hamburgers! The Corkscrew Restaurant features a selection of fine wines and a delicious well rounded menu. All of this, plus shopping, antiques, art galleries and much, much more right on nearby Canal Street -- a three minute walk.

Peaceful, Tropical Oasis - FIVE STARS!
The best host and hostess ever! First Class accomodations all the way! I am a traveling nurse and plan to tell colleagues and my agencies about this place! A comfortable, super clean, well appointed, tropical paradise. Why would you stay in a boring, noisy hotel / condo when a peaceful oasis with kitchenette, outdoor shower, indoor shower and TROPICAL POOL & GARDENS are just steps outside your door? Seriously! I loved the Cabana and will stay again!
Very pleased with our stay and would stay there again. Deb and Tom were very friendly and easy to deal with. Clean and well maintained. We were able to bring our small dog and there was a fenced in yard she could play in. The back yard/pool/grilling area is large and very nice. We were visiting family in the area so we really just slept there at night - and the bed was great! Have already recommended their rental(s) to family members.
A taste of the tropics...
In authentic Florida, quiet, relaxing, comfortable, conveniently located, clean. Gracious and welcoming hosts!
Perfect Beach Getaway
Deb and Tom were the ideal hosts! They welcomed us late at night when we arrived and were so helpful the entire trip, from quickly responding to texts to suggesting the best local restaurants and bars. The Coastal Cabana was so homey yet classy. It was a comfortable stay in the heart of New Smyrna. Located less than a 5 minute drive from anything and everything, we had a blast! We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you so much!
Classy Gem, Beautiful Setting and Ideal Location!
My husband and I could not have been more thrilled with this lovely and comfortable accommodation in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. The owners, Deb & Tom, have decorated this place with so much class and charm it should be in a design magazine! We thoroughly enjoyed cooling off in the pool after our short walks to historic Canal Street. The tropical plants and grounds are absolutely beautiful and the outdoor shower was a nice plus. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.
