SUMMER RATES, EFFECTIVE APRIL 15 THROUGH OCTOBER 31! ONLY $500 PER WEEK, $1000 PER MONTH!
ONLY 5 MINUTES TO BEACH! One of the least expensive private homes in Vero/Sebastian!
Stylish midcentury retro-modern decor! Remember when Florida was known as a semitropical paradise, a place to relish indoor-outdoor living, where your comfortable, casual vacation bungalow was designed to catch the breezes and stay cool even without air conditioning? Remember when palm trees swaying in the breeze at the water's edge were more of an attraction than mini-golf and T-shirt huts? Remember when beaches were peaceful and secluded, and you did not have to spend time searching for a private spot to lay down your beach towels?
So do we, and we are trying to preserve it. We've added air conditioning to our carefree vacation home (we admit it: sometimes you just have to have it), but otherwise, staying here is like a step back in time. If you are looking for a standardized, franchised, typical vacation setting, this is not for you. But if you would like to rediscover the best of Old-Florida living, our vacation bungalow is just the kind of place you are looking for.
Our non-smoking home features two comfortable bedrooms with separate living and dining areas. Casual and colorful furnishings lend a peaceful air to this quiet getaway. The charming nostalgic kitchen boasts the original retro-style cabinetry and vintage Formica countertops, still in fine condition. We have also updated this fully stocked kitchen with modern appliances for the best of old and new. The dining area is connected by sliding glass doors to a covered patio area where you can relax and enjoy the comfortable, natural Florida setting. A separate utility room includes a washer and dryer.
The master bedroom has a queen bed, two dressers, HUGE closet, TV and ceiling fan. The guest room has two twin beds, dresser, closet, and ceiling fan.
We provide a couple of beach chairs and beach towels for your carefree vacation.
With the Indian River, Intracoastal Waterway, and Atlantic Ocean only minutes away, you will never run out of things to do here. But if you should tire of the peace and quiet, the attractions of Orlando are just an hour and a half away. Or tour the facilities of NASA's Cape Canaveral, an hour to the north. If you’re lucky enough to be here at the time of a space launch, watch the northeastern skies at launch time for a special treat.
Need more room than this bungalow offers? Only a few miles away are our Sebastian Riverfront Estate with pool, boat dock, and guest house; and our nearby riverside Florida cottage (see "All My Rental Listings," below). For an unforgettable time at your own "Indian River Resort," pool resources with your family or friends to rent several of our vacation homes!
If you’re looking for luxury accommodations, prepackaged predictability, or a gated resort that could be anywhere in the world - keep looking. But if you are like us and love the Florida that has enchanted out-of-town visitors for decades, spend a little time here. You will be glad you did.

Relaxing, clean and quiet

My husband and I stayed with our Yorkie for 5 nights here. I grew up in S Florida in the 60's and this house reminded me so much of the home I grew up in. It was extremly quiet. Beaches here are superior to Daytona, Miami, Jacksonville. They are very white, quiet and clean. Very Family. I would recommend this home to anyone who just wants a quiet get away. So much better than a hotel. there is a wonderful family owned store with Orange Grove products and produce just a little ways N up US1. We purchased much of our food here, and made meals in the home. I absolutely loved it.

We love this house. It is furnished with everything we need and want. The decor is great. Just enough room for us to live in and enjoy. Close to beach, shopping, etc. The property was better than expected. We definitely would love to return next year.
