My most current reviews are below and also on my accounts No. 4457001,4456049 and account No. 7031912.

The vacation rental industry is rapidly "going corporate," so remember, you always secure your best price and availability plus optimal service by dealing directly with a vacation rental owner.  Currently the top subscription sites like VRBO, Homeaway, and etc. charge an extra Service fee and credit card processing fee which goes directly to them.  

I'm on these sites because I have to compete for inquiries with a good ranking site.  But I can accept credit cards using and I don't charge my customers for credit card processing.   All I require to accept a reservation is the Security Deposit.  The rent is not due until day of arrival in the form of a cashier's check, money order, bank draft, or cash (US).  

I look forward to hearing from you.

The property was perfect for our stay, quiet & relaxing. The owners drove over to meet & personally welcome us, gave us a tour of the place and gave a lot of good suggestions for the area attractions. We particularly loved the private beach access and the condo was stocked with anything you would want or use, including beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, pool noodles & books to read! They really have thought of everything. The space in the condo is used very well with 2 bdrm, 2 bath which made our stay with our college kid enjoyable we were not cramped or in each others way! We have told everyone about this place & would like to return in the future!!

We loved our stay here! The condo was clean and was the perfect size for the five of us. The construction didn't bother us at all. The beach was beautiful--so nice to not have the cars on the beach. Thanks for a quiet, relaxing vacation spot!

This year was our second year at unit #309 at Point East. We love the unit and the place on the beach. The unit is so easy to stay in, they have all the pantry essentials. The unit itself is very comfortable and clean. We have stayed in multiple places in NSB and we highy recommend this unit. Marilyn tries to make her unit a home away from home, she is very successful at doing this.

We absolutely LOVE staying at this condo and also the owner's other condo (312). Every time we stay, the unit is clean and provides everything we need. Plenty of space. There were 6 of us there (2 boys: ages 9 and 10). The beds were comfortable and there were enough linens for all of us to sleep and shower. Wifi was great even with all of our electronics running at the same time. There is a closet at the front door with lots of beach gear. The boys played with the boogie boards. It was great! The owners are super! It rained quite a bit while we were there this last time. She was in contact with us to give us suggestions on things to do to keep entertained while the rain put a damper on our beach fun time. The book in the unit shows the owner's reviews of many restaurants. That was so helpful to us! We can't wait to find time to go back and stay at one of their condos!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting Marilyn and Ed Bibbee's condo unit number 309 for the month of May. The condo is nicely located on the no drive beach. It is well equipped with everything you could think of in terms of cooking and kitchen supplies. The king sized bed in the master was very comfortable and had a nice view of the pool and ocean. There is plenty of seating options in the living room including comfortable recliners and the seating options on the lanai are adequate as well. We enjoyed daily morning coffee and evening dinners on the lanai while admiring the ocean and listening to the waves roll in. The unit was clean on our arrival. The free wifi was very dependable and there was a TV in the living room and each bedroom should you want to enjoy some down time watching TV or a movie. Although we did not take advantage, there were several movies, books and games available for your use in the unit. There also appeared to be items such as a high chair and play and pack should you need them for a little one. There was also a closet full of various beach toys such as boogie boards, noodle and camp chairs. The owners responded the same day to text or emails and responded in a more than timely fashion to a few minor issues we had ( lamp needed repair, blender not working for which they brought over a new one). All in all we would highly recommend renting this unit and would do so ourselves again if the opportunity arrived.

The owner was at the property when we arrived to explain all the information we would need for our stay, which was very nice. She was very helpful by supplying us with a typed copy of the things that were fun to do in the area, favorite restaurants, radio stations, shopping as well of a book of pamphlets of excursions. The property's description was accurate, the condo clean, well stocked with the needed equipment to take care of your daily needs. The view even though wasn't front view was good. The pool was very nice and the beach was lovely. The beach was very clean until the Sunday morning before we left because of the lack of respect the holiday crowd had about picking up after themselves. We will be going back, but will not overlap with a holiday.

Owners response: I invite all of my guests to provide reviews. I have a total of three condos at this same resort and this guest stayed in my ocean view one rather than my ocean front that is advertised on Just as soon as introduces their new improved website that allows on line booking, I will have all three of my properties advertised with them. I'm looking forward to the announcement. It's a great web site and it will make my job a lot easier once I can book my guests on their site effortlessly. It's a great site to find the perfect vacation rental and it's a great site to advertise vacation rentals. Their ranking is always at the top of page 1 of most search engines. I'm excited about new features, but in the meantime, I feel I should allow my guests to do a review of Point East resort where my properties are all located.

This condo has everything and more! To start with the owner was very nice and easy to work with. Everything is spelled out along with very useful information on the area which we knew very little about. The pool was the cleanest I have ever been around in Florida and we have been vacationing in Florida since the eighties. The beach is beautiful and easily accessed from the condo. The condo offers everything a family could ask for TVs in every room, beach chairs and toys for all ages, a balcony, fridge, stove and much more. Its much better than a hotel and probably cheaper. Restaurants and bars are within walking distance if you want. The area was new to us and we will be back. Most of all the condo was very clean and family friendly. If you book this condo you will not be sorry! We cannot stop talking about it to our friends and family!

Owners response: The reason I invested in a vacation rental at this resort was because of their excellent management and maintenance of the resort. My husband retired from the pool and spa industry and we both agree the pool and kiddie pool at Point East are always crystal clear and get high marks for being professionally maintained.

My business depends on families in the summer months and they want a clean vacation rental, and more importantly, a clean and sanitary pool and courtyard.

Many of my guests are first time visitor's to New Smyrna Beach so I have an up to date guest book that offers lots of suggestions for activities, shopping tips, and my own personal restaurant reviews. They get a head start with the help of this guest book in discovering and exploring our beautiful island paradise.

I also have a large front hall closet that's usually a bit messy but contains lots of beach toys, buggie boards, beach chairs, cooler and toys, sports equipment for the park next door and other "hidden treasure". I also have pack and play, high chair, and other items for my little guests as needed.
