Kate's Places-Lux 2/2 Beach Veranda

Kate's place was perfect! The split layout with living room in middle, so my daughter was on one side and our bedroom on the other. Everything was CLEAN, stocked and available for use. Although I brought a few supplies for backup, I didn't need them. The store right around the corner for last minute grabs. And the beach easy walk across the street. And the master bed was amazing! Thank you. We will definitely save this listing for future stays in NSB. Felt like home. :)

This was very pleasant stay - cozy place and great hospitality from Kate. Place have everything you need for beach vacation - bikes, beach chairs and even body boards for some surfing! Location is close to restaurants (10-15 mins) and major POI - 1h to Kennedy Space Center, Orlando and theme parks.

Beautiful spot with river in front full of birds and occasional dolphins. Well-equipped kitchen and contents. Lived it.

Riverfront Luxury 1 story 2B/2B Villas near beach

We thoroughly enjoyed the back deck of our riverfront villa watching the continuous bird activity, the occasional dolphins. and a pair of eagles who came to the cedar tree for a short time. The villa was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The location allows easy bicycle access to any area on the NSB mainland or island areas. Most importantly Kate was so friendly and accommodating. She even asked if she could do anything for us ahead of time. So we asked for a list of the breweries in the NSB area and she had a printout for us when we arrived!

Very nice and well equipped 2 bedroom home. Easy access to all that NSB offers.

Sharing number 64 allowed us great access to our family. It was a great experience

Kate and John were absolutely amazing hosts! Their hospitality was so very appreciated, and made our stay incredible. The house itself is so much better than the pictures they provide! It is stunning, and has a lovely charm to it. The decor, furnishing, and appliances were perfect! The view over looking the pond was breathtaking! The location of the house could not be more convenient- 10 min to the beach, and a short walk around the corner to the pool. We stayed here for an entire summer (June-August), and had the best time. It truly became our home away from home. If you want to have a relaxing, and perfect vacation stay here! Also, you should check out Kate's other homes, as I'm sure any of their homes are beyond perfect!!

Staying at Kate's place is great. It's as simple as that. It has everything you need and the close proximity to both the beach and New Smyrna Beach as well as Orlando makes it a perfect match for most. Honestly the only thing I would've done differently is that I would've liked to stay longer...

Kate and John were very welcoming. They came over and gave us a brief tour of the beautiful surroundings and showed us how to get to the beach. We did not need to interact with them again during our stay. The accommodations were awesome! Everything was brand new and clean. All the conveniences were there for the taking and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

One cannot even wish a better place for a Florida vacation than Kate's house. My girlfriend and I spent a week at her New Smyrna Beach house and everything was just PERFECT! John and Kate are very helpful and attentive hosts. Highly recommend this place!

Kate and John made us feel very welcome. They greeted us on our arrival and said goodbye to us when we were leaving. Their place felt like our home away from home. We were very comfortable throughout our stay. The description and the pictures of the home were very accurate. The home was everything we were expecting and more!

Me, my parents and husband travelled to New Smyrna Beach to visit our nephew who is attending university. We looked for a place that was close to the beach, was in a quiet area and was clean and comfortable for all of us. Kate's listing looked perfect, and when we arrived, we were thrilled with our choice. Kate is adorable, and made us feel that we were in very good hands. She was very responsive to our needs and was available throughout our stay for any incidental requests or to answer any of our questions. The house was very, very clean and comfortable, as was the kitchen, which was fully equipped and functional. The furniture throughout the house was that of a real home and was very relaxing. My parents couldn't stop commenting on how comfortable their bed was and how well they were sleeping. The pools, the grounds, the parking areas were impeccably maintained. Best of all was the beach. It was easy to access by car or by foot. We walked and played on it everyday. We couldn't have asked for more. None of us wanted to leave.

Kate and her husband were the most wonderful hosts. So very kind and considerate. If you needed anything they were always just a phone call away and always willing to help. The house is immaculate, Kate has thought of EVERYTHING. A real home from home. The neighbourhood is very safe and the residents extremely friendly. The pool area is no distance from the house and is just perfect for those hot days! I HIGHLY recommend this accommodation, it's beautiful. Again... The hosts... couldn't ask for better. Thank you so much for having me :)

Kate and John were so accommodating and kind. They placed the meals I ordered from Plated, in the refrigerator and freezer the day before we arrived. They provided cream cheese, bagels, coffee, tea, water and chips, and were attentive to questions we had on the best restaurants and grocery stores. I felt very much at ease knowing they were easily accessible for any concerns we had. They even provided washing machine soap, softener, shampoo, conditioner... you name it. It felt like home. The location was superb! Just a few short blocks to the pristine private beach. We loved the little trail through the woods by sea. It was so nice to have shade in the sweltering heat. The neighborhood was quiet and very appealing. Everyday when we came in from surfing, the pool was a nice way to cool down and relax. The pool was spotlessly clean and just a few steps from the veranda. The porch was very nice to hang out in the early morning. Kate, hats off to you for the great job of decorating. I have very similar taste as you. Thank you for rushing to get the place ready in time for us. Your meticulous attention to detail is very much appreciated. Thanks so much! It was a pleasure to rent from you two! If and when we come back, we will put you at the top of the list! Sincerely, Teresa, Rob, and Dan

We had such a wonderful and relaxing stay here. The townhome is immaculate, the setting peaceful and Kate and John couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We really had a great stay on all levels. The townhome is in a great location – in many ways we liked it better than staying on the beach directly as it was quieter and more serene and there was lots to see and do nearby. The place was incredibly clean and nicely decorated (even nicer than the photos). The pool was close by, clean and uncrowded. Nice walking trails out the front door. And sand hill cranes and bald eagles to watch from the patio. The care that John and Kate took to ensure a nice stay made everything even more special. They had great recommendations (we tried several of their recommended restaurants and all of them were great) and had stocked the townhome with everything you could want for your stay. They were super-prompt with communication and genuinely interested in making sure we had everything we needed. All their caring touches were greatly appreciated by us. It was truly a great vacation — one of our family's favorites so far — and we thank Kate and John for making it so special. We didn't want to come home! :)

We stayed here for 6 weeks, February to March and thoroughly enjoyed this unit. It is our second time staying here and when we walked in this year it felt like home. The property is well maintained, just steps from the heated pool, a five minute walk to the lovely no drive beach, close to restaurants, various attractions and shopping. We have made friends with other Sea Woods residents and it was nice to see them again and catch up on each other's lives since last year. As always Kate, John and David are very helpful and available whenever you have a question or need assistance. We thoroughly enjoy staying here. Thank you Kate, John and David for helping to make our stay so enjoyable, see you next year.

Our family loved our stay! We walked in to a very clean, peaceful environment with a personalized welcome message and calming music playing. The touches were so thoughtful! We loved being within walking distance to the beach. It was so nice having access to some beach toys so we did not have to purchase anything for that. Kate had some great recommendations for us on restaurants and things to do. This was our first time staying somewhere other than a hotel while on vacation and I think we will be doing it again!!

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Woods. Kate's Place is by far one of the best places we have ever stayed. The condo was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Loved sitting out on the veranda in the mornings to read and have a cup of tea. The heated pool, which was just steps from our front door, was great to relax in after a day at the beach or shopping. All essentials were provided. Kate and John were delightful. Kate was always quick to answer any questions we had when we were making arrangements for our stay. John was there to rescue us on our first night there after we walked too far down the beach to find a place to eat. It was getting dark by the time we finished eating. He was coming to our place to show us around and swung by the restaurant to pick us up. There is so much to do in New Smyrna Beach and surrounding areas. The beach is directly across the street from the front entrance to Sea Woods and is a beautiful beach to soak up the sun or just take a refreshing walk. There are so many great restaurants to choose from and lots of quaint little shops on Canal and Flagler. The Hub on Canal St. is a great place to visit to see local artists and to purchase their art works. We took a day trip to Blue Springs State Park to go on an eco tour on the St. John's River Cruise and another day trip to Mt. Dora, enjoying a shopper's paradise. Definitely will be returning for another vacation at Kate's Place. Thanks so much Kate and John for your hospitality!

My sister and I were welcomed by John and Kate, John unloaded the vehicle while Kate showed us our home for the month of April. We felt very special. Amazing and caring couple that do everything they can to make you feel at home. And we did ! Loved the veranda, walked the beach daily (just a short walk away), and basked in the warm sun by the heated pool. Everything one needed was there to enjoy in comfort. It was our first time, so the recommendations were welcomed. Memories! Memories! Thank you John and Kate for making us feel at home.

We stayed here for 10 weeks, mid January to the end of March and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a lovely unit and Kate and Jon were very accommodating, even leaving some snacks and bottled water to start us off when we arrived. The location was perfect, we were just a short 5 minute walk to the beautiful no drive beach and 20 steps from the heated pool. Grocery stores were near by also. Seawoods is a nice area to walk through, people are very friendly. We would certainly recommend this unit to others and hope to return ourselves.

My husband and I stayed here with two teenagers while visiting family in New Smyrna Beach. The owners, Kate & John, were very kind and showed us around. The unit is tucked inside the neighborhood and surrounding by mature trees and foliage. There is a short path to the beach where we spent many early morning and afternoon walks. It is a short drive to the downtown area and there are so many restaurants to choose from. The unit itself is very nicely decorated, clean (very important to us) and quiet. There were bikes available to ride and a couple of pools and tennis courts. Overall, a great experience and we would very likely stay here again.

What a fantastic place for any and all. My family (wife, three kids [ages 4,3 & 1]) and I enjoyed every aspect of this condo. It is well kept, quiet, comfortable and safe. Only steps from the private pool and not a bad walk to the beach. We arrived late on Friday, so Kate asked for the kids favorite breakfast food and made sure it was waiting for us. Every detail was thought of: restaurant recommendations, snacks, bottle water, beach toys, boogie boards, soap, shampoo, towels, TVs, etc. Side story: Our car wouldn't start one evening and we didn't have jumper cables. I called Kate (owner) and she offered to go to the store buy jumper cables and drive over and help us. You will not find someone who cares more about people and will do anything to ensure you have a wonderful stay. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be going back!! Book it now...

This place..Kate's Song was exactly what I needed...her home, and it certainly felt like a home, was made to comfort and soothe the busy bee!! Every little detail, many that other places deem unnecessary was taken care of..everything was high quality with a definite attention to detail and comfort..but not so stuffy I was afraid to let the kids run around or put my feet on the couch!! We loved it....pool steps out front, beach across the street and quiet all around!! We're definitely going back for more... ( it may become mommy's favorite escape).....

Once you walk in the door of Kate's Place you will feel at home. This is the perfect spot for a beach adventure or a day at the pool or sipping coffee on the veranda. You will be thrilled with every detail of Kate's Place.


          Kate's Place is a true gem. From the moment you walk in the door you feel like you are home. Everything's about Kate's Place, the cleanliness, up to date decor, all materials provided for the beach, pool, or sitting on the veranda, makes your stay magical. Kate and her husband greeted us and this added a wonderful personal touch. I wish we could go back tomorrow. Thank you Kate and John for providing us a wonderful place to build memories and refresh the soul. Enjoying the journey, Glen, Kelli, Alanah and Donovan.
