Indian Harbour Beach house description

Have your own particular harbour at the closest beach to Orlando!

Property is directly located on your own private Harbour overlooking spectacular, RARE water views, sailboats, manatees, dolphins, herons, pelicans, and Space Coast rocket launches! (Check out the launch schedule here: spacecoastlaunches.com)

Fully furnished 3 bedroom / 2 bath house with free use of kayaks and beach bikes. Reverse living on deep, wide canal-leads directly to Banana/Indian Rivers & Intracoastal Waterway!

Open deck extends the full length of house. Light & airy, hardwood floors throughout, tastefully furnished & decorated with owner's original artwork.

Everything is close! Only one-mile to the beach!

Ride the beach bikes or walk to nearby restaurants and parks - 27-acre Gleason Park is a 5-minute walk and has many exercise trails, a year-round heated pool, community center where classes and activities are held for people of all ages, tennis courts, baseball and soccer at its million-dollar sports field complex.

Oars & Paddles Park is around the corner and home to the Space Coast Rowing teams. There are also at least three great restaurants within walking distance and lots more within bike riding distance. Shopping and excellent dining can be found all around. Also, close to Airports, I-95 and Orlando.

Enjoy your own Sea World right from the backyard. Paddle to several nearby private islands and explore, bird watch or have a picnic!

Just 10 minutes south is Melbourne Beach, a laid back town where you can shop the local stores as well as enjoy the beautiful beaches. If you want a little more action, drive 15 minutes north and visit the world famous COCOA BEACH. There you can spend your day shopping at Ron Jon's, surfing at the Cocoa Beach pier, and enjoying great food, drinks, and live music.

Don't forget that you can also enjoy the attractions of DISNEY WORLD and UNIVERSAL STUDIOS by taking the 'Beeline' expressway only 1 hour west to Orlando.

If NASA interests you, then drive 30 minutes north to Cape Canaveral and take a guided tour through the Kennedy Space Center.

If water sports is your thing then go to some of the many famous surf spots that are scattered along the local beaches and home to famous surfers such as Kelly Slater and the Hobgood brothers.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              The Indian River Lagoon is North America’s most diverse estuary with more than 4,300 species of plants (2,100) and animals (2,200), including 35 that are listed as threatened or endangered — more than any other estuary in North America. The Lagoon serves as a spawning and nursery ground for many different species of oceanic and lagoon fish and shellfish. The lagoon also has one of the most diverse bird populations anywhere in America. Nearly 1/3 of the nation’s manatee population lives here or migrates through the Lagoon seasonally. In addition, its ocean beaches provide one of the densest sea turtle nesting areas found in the Western Hemisphere. Red Drum, Spotted seatrout, Common snook, and the Tarpon are the main gamefish sought by anglers. Between 200 and 800 Bottlenose dolphins live in the Lagoon & can be swimming and playing regularly.

                              Why the Owner Chose Indian Harbour Beach:
                              Because it has the best views, and it's a paddler's & fisherman's dream! There's nothing like fishing off your own dock, or launching a kayak right from the backyard among the dolphins & manatees. There are several private islands within paddling distance where you can dock, explore or have a picnic. Our favorite restaurants are within walking distance or a short bike ride away. Walk or ride the beach bikes to the Ocean. Shopping & everything you need is conveniantly nearby!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Wake up to the tinking of sailboat masses and the sound of dolphins splashing. Have your coffee or tea on the deck overlooking blue skies, waterfoul, tropical trees and the Salty Banana River. Enjoy watching the Space Coast Rowing Teams pass by in their skiffs, and many water enthusiasts in a variety of different water craft. Also, have a front-row seat to all Space Coast rocket launches from your 60-foot deck overlooking your particular harbour. A waterlover's dream!
