Indian Harbour Beach is a fun and friendly, relaxed and safe beach-side island community on Florida's beautiful Space Coast. Located between Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral and Melbourne Beach/Sebastian Inlet, our warm-water beaches are great for sunrise walks and relaxing days and some of the best surfing, boating, and surf-fishing on the East Coast of the U.S.
The Indian River, just blocks away, is a great place to paddle board, boat, fish, and check out local wildlife such as dolphins, manatees, wading birds, etc.
Indian Harbour Beach and the surrounding areas have plenty of shopping, nightlife, and restaurants. Be sure and try Papagallos and Longdoggers, each only a 5-10 minute drive. A ten minute drive to Downtown Historic Melbourne offers more shops, restaurants, art festivals and bars. There is so much to do here with the beach, water sports, fishing, Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, piers, golf-courses, and Disney/Orlando Parks all nearby.

Exceptional customer service, exceptional quality house, exceptional location
Very positive experience! Steven and his family were super friendly and very accommodating. Answered all questions in a timely manner. We had a four week stay and had absolutely no issues. The house was beautiful, well kept, clean, well stocked and Steven's Dad visited several times to work on the property and was friendly, respectful and supportive. We very much appreciated the bikes and boogie boards. Very close to the beach and amenities. It is a lovely area of Florida. We have stayed in this area for the past 5 years at the same time and this was our first time staying at this property. We had nightmares with the other properties we rented and we were very relieved and happy with this experience with Steven and Hannah's rental home. We want to return next year and stay longer in this property. We highly recommend staying at this property, you won't be disappointed.
Lovely home - lovely homeowner
Seven of my family members, ranging in age from 11 to 68, enjoyed the week at Steve and Hannah's lovely home. We found it comfortable, spacious, and well equipped for all our needs. We were especially grateful for the beach toys and Steve's excellent guidance around viewing the rocket launch that coincided with our stay. Everyone in our group agreed the beds were among the most comfortable they've enjoyed. The location was convenient to a great variety of beaches (our favorite was Paradise - literally and figuratively!). We would absolutely go back and recommend to others.
Clean, tons of space, very close to beach and plenty of restaurants
We had a large group scheduled for a cruise and needed a place to stay the night before. We wanted a place to stay that had access to a beach so we could get a preview of the week to come. Also proximity to food is always important.
We selected this house because it had everything on our checklist, and most importantly this is one of the few VBRO locations that allows for you to stay for one night. We’re really happy with our choice!
To start off with, Steven was very flexible with our stay. We flew into Orlando very early in the morning and took an Uber to the island. While the description specifically said early checkin is not allowed, Steven allowed us to drop off our luggage. This alleviated us from toting things to the beach and while killing time before checkin. Steven also responded VERY quickly, which was greatly appreciated.
Some important things about the house:
- The house was huge - plenty of space for 8 large adults.
- Huge screened-in lanai with comfy seating so you can get fresh air without having to deal with bugs
- Really comfortable living room furniture and beds
- Full kitchen & two good sized bathrooms. One of them is an on-suite with the master bedroom
- Ceiling fans in every room
- Very clean and enough towels for all guests
- Fast internet for completing check-ins and documents for cruises / flights
Some things we learned about the area close to the house:
- The house really is ~3 blocks from the beach. A1A is VERY busy. If possible, turn RIGHT out of he neighborhood.
- We went to Lou’s Blues for lunch. It’s totally a dive bar, but it’s right on the beach and they had really good burgers and the coconut shrimp were amazing! Go upstairs for a great view. If you’ve not had Kona Big Wave beer, get one. The beach is accessible directly behind the restaurant.
- There are many places to eat that are very close by, but unfortunately they fill up VERY fast. If you plan on eating, call for reservations or go to dinner early. We ate at a place called Squid Lips. Good food, but location is awesome. You’ll have to Uber there, though.
- There’s a brand new Starbucks less than one block away
Perfect place for our family beach vacation. Location very convenient. Comfortable setting for sharing meals and time together both inside and lanai. Exceeded our expectations in all regards. We are grateful to our wonderful hosts for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
Very clean and comfortable home and very well supplied. We were only here a couple days but it would have been great to stay longer.
