A Relaxing Retreat with the Family
A Relaxing Retreat with the Family
What a great vacation we had staying at the Bodhi tree house. It was like our own private vacation home! Almost every day I would take the kids about a mile down the street and watch the manatees frolick in the lagoon. Such a great nature walk at Round Island park. We went to Legoland and Disney World which was only about 2 hours drive. The beach was super private and quiet and so many shells to collect for shell lovers with beach chairs and showers. My kids could not ever get enough of the pool and one of my 5 year old twins learned to swim. This house has everything a vacation home needs! Nothing was overlooked. The town of Vero is very close and easily accessed by car or bikes. We hardly ever ate out as we just bought groceries and relaxed by the pool or went to the beach. Also we fished about a half hour away at the Sebastian inlet pier. Saw fisherman pull in a Tuna, Amberjack and Snook. Only advice if visiting in summer is bring bug spray as the noseeums (sand flies) could carry you away. But our family had one of the most memorable and relaxing vacations we ever had and would definitely stay again in a heartbeat. My husband kept saying I wish we stayed one more week! Maybe longer next time. Thanks to Robert for being a great host!

Happy renters from Pittsburgh
Happy renters from Pittsburgh
We were delighted with our rental choice from the moment we walked through the front door. The house is beautiful. I couldn't believe how immaculate everything is. The furnishings are so comfortable and covered in white. I thought that might be a problem with our grandchildren but they were so easy to take care of. The location was incredible. It is only a short walk to the most gorgeous private beach. One day there was one other person on the beach and we joked how crowded it was getting. Our oldest daughter came down to visit us with a newly broken leg and she had no trouble crutching her way to the beach as it's just across the street. We were also thrilled with all the amenities provided. There were beach chairs, boogie board, lots of pool toys, and even great terrycloth shower robes. The kitchen was the best surprise of all. There wasn't one item missing. The amount of kitchen utensils , glassware, pots and pans, choppers, mixers, and anything you could think of. It is a beautiful, spacious space with an incredible amount of storage. There is a very large pantry closet that is empty and waiting for your groceries. The drawers are also empty of the owners belongings which is such a nice surprise. We have rented elsewhere where we had very little storage. There is so much storage everywhere in the lovely home. Rob and Sim Wing were so helpful. We rarely needed to contact them as everything was great. We never used the dining room as we loved sitting outside for meals. The screening over the pool and lanai eliminated all bugs. We fell in love with Vero Beach and the lifestyle there. The neighbors on the street were great, particularly the O'Briens across the way. It's a quiet, perfect setting. I hope our grandchildren didn't upset them as they were rarely out of the pool. We had a fabulous vacation and I would recommend this lovely home to anyone. We hope to return!

Relaxation by the beach
Relaxation by the beach
My wife and I spent a month at the Bodhi Tree Home and we loved it. The pool and lanai are private and a great place to relax with morning coffee or an afternoon break. The beach is a short walk and is beautiful, and you mostly have it to yourself. The home is on a quiet cul de sac and is beautifully decorated and well maintained. I highly recommend it.

THE BEST VACATION IN FLORIDA
THE BEST VACATION IN FLORIDA
I and my husband were looking for a house in Florida for vacation. When we found Bodhi Tree in Vero Beach at vrbo.com, I was not sure that's the best choice. Sometimes photos show something other than the reality:-) When we entered the house, we felt happy and confident, that our vacation will be great. We saw a very clean, beautifully and stylishly decorated interior. It looks even better, than the pictures. Playing music and a bottle of wine with a letter from the owners were a very nice welcome surprise. We found everything we needed in the spacious kitchen and the rest of the house. During a two week stay, we spent a lot of time on the beach, located a few steps, and in the clean , quite a deep pool, surrounded by greenery. This is the most beautiful part of Vero Beach. We would love to come again and strongly recommend it to all. Eva & Andy

Peace and Quiet by the Sea
Peace and Quiet by the Sea
My husband and I spent 2 weeks in this bright and clean home in Vero Beach. We have vacationed on the west coast and this was our first time on the east coast. The house was clean and had all the necessary items to make our stay as comfortable as being at home. The beach was a short walk from the house which was very convenient. We also visited two of the state park beaches which were really nice too! I would have to say that the best part was enjoying the beautiful enclosed pool which is surrounded by tropical plants and very private. Having vacationed on the other coast at the same time of year when a lot of restaurants aren't open we found Vero to have the best selection of restaurants ( mulligans, Ocean Grill, MT's Chop House and our favorite Riverside Cafe) to choose from. If you are considering vacationing in Vero we highly recommend the Bodhi Tree Home. It's exactly as pictured and the owner was very helpful with answering any questions and welcomed us with a phone call when we arrived. Thank you for sharing your peaceful home in paradise. Sincerely.....Stan and Tracy Ottman

The housebeautifully decorated and so well maintanied.

We were lucky enough to spend a few days in this eclectically furnished home by the sea. The ocean was delightful, the sparkling white sand beach, the beautifully carved bed cozy and comfortable and the florida room just a perfect spot for apres ocean swimming. The house was quiet, clean, bright and protected in its own small gated community. It had all that was needed for the perfect beach vacation including an easy ride to the old town of Vero Beach wild or quietly romantic restaurants--for the settled older crowd or for the young and the hip. (the Ocean Grill and Mulligans) Vero Beach has exclusive beach boutique shopping or outlet shopping for the economy minded. We took a ride to the Sebastian Inlet--a truly beautiful spot-- with the top down and the warm wind in our hair. We were rented a flat bottomed boat for a day on the Indian River (which is right near this house) to picnic and sleep on the many islands that dot the river. Pelicans dolphins water fowl flew by our sun warmed heads. It was our best Florida vacation--food fun water sports swimming and beach combing all within minutes from the Bodhi Tree Home-- a home that is truly magical and just plain perfect!
