"The house is perfectly situated between the ocean and river, a quick walk to either. The home is well stocked and comfortable, and we used the screened porch often for dinners. The yard is lush, the garage and outdoor shower helped us keep the beach sand outside. Beds were comfortable, great tv, internet and long distance home phone. We were close to restaurants, grocery, gym, and attractions. Thanks, Jenny and family, for letting us enjoy your home. And we loved the beach bikes and fish poles!"

Very Private Location - Family Friendly - Relaxing
"We are a mom, dad, grade schooler and two toddlers.
This house was the most private beach location I have ever experienced. Most days, we were the only people on the beach for a mile in either direction. At the busiest of times, there would be three or four people within three hundred yards. We saw maybe six walkers/joggers go by in a day.
The house itself is fine. There is some deferred maintenance but nothing dangerous (peeling paint, aging dishwasher, loose faucet in kitchen sink, etc.). It was not spotlessly clean when we arrived. There is pet hair in the carpet of the master bedroom and not all surfaces are spotless. I would describe it as looking lived-in. The house apparently uses "artisan well" water. The water does have a sulpherous smell but we got used to it quickly. We were told to use bottled water to drink. An office-style water cooler is provided. We bought a couple of cases of bottled water and used it for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth. It was no problem showering, washing clothes, etc. I admit that the water issue was off-putting at first. However, the location of the house was so amazing that I decided it was worth the inconvenience.
There are beach toys and boogie boards there for the kids. Gina even went out and bought a little set of beach chairs with an umbrella when I told her my wife likes sitting on the beach with an umbrella. The house and beach are family-friendly. Not an area for people who are looking for lots of activities (putt-putt, jet-skis, etc.).
We spent most of our trip at the house on the beach. We ate it for all but two meals all week. There is a Publix grocery store about twelve minutes north on A1A highway. That Publix location was not listed on Google Maps when I checked befoer the trip. We passed it on the way to the house. The cupboard and fridge were partially stocked with things people had left behind. You may want to see what's there before you go to the store.
We ate at the New England Eatery one night. It's near the house and low-key. It's mostly fried, pub food but it's good fried food.
Kennedy Space Center is about an hour north.
If you want a private beach experience and aren't put off by well water and a little pet hair, it's a good find. Most relaxing vacation I've had in a long time."

"Our stay was fantastic, the house was clean and comfy. Two pomeranians also stayed and had a great time, it was their first time to the beach. So few beaches allow dogs anymore, but this quiet amazing beach does. I am very happy with our stay, if you come to the Melbourne area try a maple bacon bar from Love Bugs Bakery, they are excellent. Thanks Julia!!"

"My husband and I stayed here the month of April. The house is beautiful and the neighborhood quiet. The owners are VERY accommodating. Location is close to Sebastian Inlet State Park - great place for families. There's a beach on the ocean for surfing and a nice tidal pool for the rest of us! The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. We hope we can stay again. Can't say enough about this place."
