About the owner: We are a native Floridian and a midwest transplant with young children who enjoy the charm and beauty that old Florida has to offer. As busy professionals living in South Florida, we enjoy coming to Melbourne Beach to escape the stresses of everyday living.
Why the Owner Chose Melbourne Beach: After an exhaustive search up and down the east and west coasts of Florida for the perfect vacation home, we finally settled on Melbourne Beach as one of the few places that still embodies all the charms that Florida has to offer: friendly people, untouched nature and empty beaches. This home is full of character. Built in 1979, it has been newly renovated with attention to preserving the original design and cozy beach-front cottage feel. The home has more privacy than most of the other homes in the area. Centrally located just north of the Sebastian Inlet, you are a hop skip and jump from beaches, parks and museums. It is located midway between 'hip' downtown Melbourne and upscale Vero Beach with Disney World/Orlando and the Kennedy Space Center/Cape Canaveral within an easy day trip. Plenty of restaurants, shopping, the Vero Beach Outlets, antique shops and nightlife nearby.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You will not find another property this unique in the area. One step inside the house and you will fall in love with the panoramic views of the ocean which are even more spectacular from the 3rd floor. Your large front yard has a patio area, tree house and hammock. Your backyard is the beach! We have given special attention to all the details that will make a vacation home relaxing and welcoming. Enjoy the things you never can in your busy life...read a book, enjoy a relaxing day on the sand soaking up the sun, paint a landscape or just lay in your hammock. For the more adventuresome, plenty of water sports are available: paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking, boating, windsurfing, and the list goes on. Fish from the shore or charter a boat. Search for hidden treasures in the sand and find out why it is called Treasure Coast.
