              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Our family - Kerry, Dori, Katey and Zipper - have lived in Melbourne Beach, FL for over ten years. We recently relocated to Oklahoma City, OK, but will come back often to visit our family and friends.

              Why the Owner Chose Melbourne Beach:
              This home is very unique because of the location and the amenities in the neighborhood. Living here was like being on 'vacation' all the time! We kept our home so we could come back and visit this wonderful tropical paradise. In doing so, we decided to share our home with other families that would like to do the same and who want to ESCAPE from it all!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We fell in love with the lifestyle in Melbourne Beach. This is a casual, friendly area with little traffic and uncrowded beaches. Our home is nestled in a private, gated community that gives you the feeling of living at a resort! The home is large, yet cozy and comfortable. You will savor every moment in the casual, coastal environment.
