This is a fully remodeled, and totally separate apartment from our 1923 house: "The House on Crawford". 80 yards away from the beach and the river, 300 yards from Flagler Avenue, it is ideal for a couple who is looking for a no hassle break away.
Independent from the main House on Crawford, (click on "view full profile" to access our other rental apartments), "the cottage" is our garage apartment. It has its own access and private little yard. The space has been fully remodeled in the New England Style where modernism meets Shaby Chic.
We have bicycles at no charge, beach chairs, cooler, umbrella... if something is missing... just ask!
Interaction with Guests
Owners Anne and Richard are attentive but never intrusive, and can often be found on their deck sharing a cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the early evening.
The cottage is situated on a beachy street where people, walk their dogs, ride their bicycles, go surfing, life is easy and good at Crawford!
Our guests have a private parking space.
Many things can be seen... museum, light house... There is always something going on at Flagler Ave: art festival, jazz festival, wine walk... This is the perfect getaway.

The apartment at the house on Crawford is awesome! Beautifully furnished with everything you need, including bikes. It's a very short walk to the beach though - right at the end of the road!! The shops on Flagler Av are adorable. What a hidden gem! Anne was a perfect hostess too. Highly recommend.
The little efficiency apartment over the garage is beautifully decorated and was very clean when we arrived. The hosts had set the table with a bottle of wine, an opener, two wine glasses, and two chocolate bars. When we met Richard and Anne the following afternoon, we discovered that they are friendly, helpful, and interesting people. Wish we had more time to chat.
Our only problem with the room was the low, sloping ceiling - a real risk for tall people.
This was a fantastic experience. We wanted to have a day away and this was a perfect place to do that. Everything was beautiful and so clean, plus! They had a bottle of wine waiting for us for the night. Our host was lovely as can be while greeting us at arrival and showing us the place. Not intrusive whatsoever. Will definitely use her again.
I stayed in the cottage over the garage at The House on Crawford on New Year's Eve. What a wonderful, charming place. It was clean, neat and well provided. Anne and Richard were gracious hosts and their response periods were almost instantaneous. Since I'm in New Smyrna Beach often I have no doubt that I will be contacting them again and hope that their place is available. They made me fee quite welcome and very comfortable.
Anne are really nice and considerate. I really love the apartment, the bed was son soft and really quiet, I felt relaxed. Highly recommend!
Anne and Richard are wonderful hosts. They created a welcoming atmosphere in the house and ensured that my stay at their place was a really amazing experience. It was real pleasure to sit outside of the house in front of the fire place, drink some wine and have an interesting conversation. I also enjoyed 'French touch' in house decoration. Looking forward to be back and walk to the Atlantic ocean!
Very nice rental, very close to the beach and the "main street' of New Smyrna. We booked pretty late before Xmas and we had a slight mixup on date/availability but Anne very nicely was able to put us in a not totally renovated unit that was already quite cozy and will be perfect once finished! We have family in the area and will be glad to return and recommend to other family who might come down.
The Roku + Netflix is a great touch!
