Why we like it hereSharon and I have been coming to New Smyrna Beach as often as possible since 1972 with most of our stay next door at Holiday Cove North. We have owned a unit there, with the exception of one year, for 27+ years. With the nomadic lives our family lived, in 6 different communities while I was working, New Smyrna Beach became the common denominator for us, our home away from home.

Why we like it hereI have been coming to NSB since my parents brought me here as a baby and to Watermark since it was built. We love NSB with it’s small town charm, shops, restaurants, many activities and its wonderful beach. And Watermark is a great condominium being located on the north beach with a short walk to Flagler, its well-maintained building and grounds, and great owners.

Spouse’s nameNancy
Why we like it hereMy aunt and uncle (Len and Louise Greene) were original Watermark owners so I’ve been around from time-to-time since it was built and have spent more time here since moving to Florida in 2003 and helping Louise with the property after she became unable to handle it herself. Nancy and I acquired our unit after my aunt died in 2014. We very much like it here, the people we’ve met and convenient location. We hope to be able to spend more time in our unit in the future and may move here at some point.
