not a good match - but right on the beach
First the positives: good size house, right on the beach, heated pool.
Some improvement would be great: the deck is very splintered, the stove (downdraft vent) wasn't in great shape, the oven took 22 minutes to heat to 350, construction debris (screws on the ground) and equipment (wood, ladders, jacks) left in the yard.
there were signs and notes (9 of them) taped up everywhere: "don't touch", "if you use this, you will be charged," "owner's property - don't touch," "don't leave stuff in the refrigerator" etc., the pool guy and the landscaper constantly dropped by without notice (even after the owner promised to give notice and limit visits). of the 20 days we rented the house, 6 drop-ins so, if privacy is your thing, this may not be the right place. The phone rang so much I had to unplug it, and, finally, it was very disconcerting to have the owner text me about deliveries I received (it made me feel as though I was being watched).
If having the owner very involved in your stay is OK with you, the house is in a great location, will sleep 6 very easily, sits on a great beach, is clean and roomy.
Direct Oceanfront with a heated pool in an awesome location. With 6 wood decks, docks, balconies there is likely to be (1) with some weathered boards. Direct Oceanfront is much desired, and has routine investment/work. (This was especially great since a major hurricane was in this area only months before).
To maintain a clean/warm pool & grounds, pool and lawn maintenance must be done weekly, thus 1 visit from each (pool/lawn) would be 6 times over 3 weeks.
With an avg score of near perfect from all our guests, we will continue to exceed our visitors expectations at our Oceanfront home.
The house was well furnished, clean and nicely decorated. Ron was awesome to work with.
Great location for beach bums!
Amazing location. Nice comfortable house. Steps to the beach. Restaurants are sparse and a bit of a drive but the pizza joint down the street has a great menu and delivers. Definitely a great choice for a quiet vacation and families.
Perfect way to focus on relaxation
Loved how scenic the views were, from both the beach and the river. Enjoyed many sunsets and sunrises, and even when it is hot out the breeze from the water helps a lot. Use bug spray liberally! So secluded that we often went a full day on the beach and in the pool/on the river without seeing anyone else - unreal! Water was clear and perfect temp for us, and we got to see all kinds of sealife (dolphins, sea turtles, fish of all kinds, nurse sharks, crabs, hammerhead shark, it was awesome! The house was great and worked perfectly for us, and 15 minutes to Vero for fun shops, groceries, restaurants, etc was perfect.
We look forward to having you back again, have a great Fall!
Love, love love this wonderful house!!
This was our second time renting this home for the week. We absolutely love staying here! We love everything about it! The beach, the river, the privacy, you just cannot ask for more! We will be back!
Very happy to hear you enjoyed it as much as we do!
Beautiful house in a beautiful location
What a delightful place - perfect for a spring break for our family. Every morning we woke up to wonderful views on all sides. Highly recommended!
Thanks for the great review last year, hope you are having a wonderful Fall.
Fish, surf, sun, swim, clamming, bird watch, 7 miles of private beach for daily walks, or just chill. Treasure hunters still work the site each Summer, of the 1730 Spanish fleet which sank behind the home, still finding silver, gold and other treasure each year. Nearby Treasure Museum and Nature Site, provide daily diversions for the kids. We selectively offer our second home, enjoy vacationing in a private multi-million dollar setting! Located between Vero Beach and Melbourne Beach. Other Activities: Beach Walks, Fish or Surf directly at the house.
