The community:

Castaway Cove beachside is a charming quiet enclave of tranquility located on Orchid Island. The community is gated with a guard, 24/7. Several Florida publications have rated Castaway Cove as the “Best Beach: Florida’s Central Atlantic Coast”, due to it’s broad expanse of white sand with natural dunes sweeping down to the surf. The seven mile long stretch of Castaway Cove Beach is private access, so the beach is never crowded and often deserted.

Though secluded, Castaway is close to all amenities. A convenience store for a newspaper and a cup of coffee is about an eight minute walk. The highly rated Johnny D’s casual Italian restaurant market is just across the street from Castaway. Maison Martinique, is a white table cloth, French cuisine restaurant. Trattoria Dario, is an up-scale Italian restaurant, bar with happy hour. Havanna Nights is a resort-casual, tapas bar open for lunch and dinner with live music on weekends. All these and other amenities are less than a mile from the rental home.

Located about a mile from the bridge to mainline Vero, you’re never far from all shopping and entertainment. Everything from supermarkets, antique shops, public library, dive, surf shops and our rustic and charming downtown Vero are all within a 5 to 8 minute drive. Downtown offers cultural, historical and dining options. There's a monthly gallery stroll. Always something interesting happening...

Indian river lagoon has lots of other activities: kayaking, sailing, motor-boating, jet skiing, water skiing, guided nature tours, sunset cruises, etc. We are about 3 miles from the vero beach marina that offers many activities. There are several off-shore wrecks that offer excellent diving and snorkeling. Fort pierce has a large flotilla of recreational fishing boats.

Castaway Cove, Vero Beach,

Car: Recommended

Vero Beach is an amazing beach community with some of the best beaches in Florida. Castaway Cove Beach is only a short stroll away, 3 minutes at a brisk pace... A private beach, the Cove has the amazing aquamarine blue-green water that one sees in the Caribbean. Natural dunes sweep down to the surf. Off season, one can often walk along the beach for miles before encountering another soul. And that's just the beach.

Vero boasts some of the best and reasonably priced dining in all f Florida with over 300 restaurants. From casual to formal, good old fashion American to exotic ethnic, guests will find something to satisfy every taste.

The island is considered exclusive but not snobby. Some of the most famous and successful make Vero their home.

Vero is secluded yet close to so many attractions that you'll never be at a lost for a new adventure. Whether it be deep sea fishing, harbor cruises, bird watching, world class shopping, Vero is close to everything.

Not matter what you're looking for Vero Beach is a great place to spend your vacation!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I'm a part time resident of Vero Beach and part time resident of Lexington, Kentucky. I decided to rent out this island beach home when I am out of town. I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable...

Why the Owner Chose Castaway Cove:
Vero Beach is an undiscovered gem. The people here are friendly and polite. Castaway Cove has the best beach in the area. Why? Because it's broad and natural. I find the dunes covered by sea oats very picturesque. So for natural beauty and good people, it's a great pace to stay. I wanted to settle at the Florida shore because I grew up at the Jersey shore and wanted to be close to the beach again. I shopped around for houses in Vero and decided I wanted the security of a gated community close to the beach. Also, Castaway has a reputation for being laid back yet up-scale. I wanted a medium sized house with a pool, so when this house came on the market, I had to see it. When I did I fell in love with it with it's great room, spacious feeling, lots of light, the back facing east (to wake up the house in the morning…), larger pool and a few minute walk to the beach. All these features convinced me to buy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unique Benefits Include: - Very Close to the beach - Great Natural, and usually deserted, beach - Airy, sunny, light and bright... - Pool - Split plan, master on one side, other two bedrooms on the other - Close to bridge and lots of local attractions -
