About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Florida Charm, this house was built in the 1950's and renovated in 2017-18. The floors are beautiful Terrazo. This unbeatable location is only 2 miles across the river from Melbourne FL. We are located between the Indian River the Atlantic Ocean which often allows for open windows to catch the breezes in the cooler months. You can bicycle, or walk to the beach, river, pier, shopping, post office, medical offices, package store, pub/bar, Starbucks, restaurants and fast food. There are beach rental items at the end of our street. The property is about 10 minutes from the MLB Melbourne FL airport. Located on Florida's central East coast between Sebastian Inlet and Port Canaveral. Watch rockets lift off from Cape Kennedy. This quiet location is the only residence on the block. The restaurants nearby range from upper scale to fast food including Skewer's, Islands Fish, Scott's 5th Avenue, Nini's Cuban, Starbucks, Subway, Bizarros Pizza, Cold Stone creamery, Beachside Cafe. You are within a block of the post office, fire, police, bank/ATM. There are 4 bicycles available to use at your own risk, if you want fancier bikes they can be rented at the local bike shop. There is an emergency walk in clinic one block to the south. There are parks at either end of the street: the Atlantic Ocean Boardwalk and Indian River Pier which are ideal for watching our beautiful sunrises and sunsets. There is a bicycle and walking path over the Melbourne Causeway (2 miles) which will take you to the old New Haven area, shopping and bar district. We have wireless internet available and cable television. The location is ideal for a quiet and relaxed getaway. The property has many trees and is almost a park like setting.

About Edward/Marge

I have enjoyed traveling the world and meeting people and experiencing their cultures. I grew up close to the property and work near by. As a HomeAway traveler myself I want to provide the best possible experience and hope to have repeat visitors. I am able to help with most questions about what to do, eat, and see as well as where not to go. If I have extra time I also have entertained being local guide.

Edward/Marge purchased this house in 2000

Why Edward/Marge chose Indialantic By The Sea

The location is centrally located to all the local businesses, the Atlantic ocean, the Indian river, close to old downtown Melbourne and the Airport (MLB). The only store that is more than walking distance is a grocery store. Sunrise at the Ocean and Sunset over the Indian River. Quiet peaceful secure location. Bicycles available at your own risk.

What makes this house unique

The area is usually quiet and peaceful yet close to everything. There are only neighbors in the rear of the property, this is the only residence on the block. The home is surrounded by plants for shade and privacy. There is an on site property manager who also does the cleaning. She is quiet and respectful and lives in a totally separate apartment with her own entry.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the convenience to the beach, businesses and restaraunts. The home was clean and we had everything we needed to cook when we didn't feel like going out.

Great week away with family!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and the owners go above and beyond. Arrived on Easter and candy was left on the kitchen table for both kids. Goodies also left for our dog in the bowl. Easy walk or bike to the beach and restaurants. Kids loved ENO'ing on the great trees on the property.

Highly recommend!

Large open space Impressive polished floors. They thought of everything-full kitchen, quaint patios

  • 5 of 5

Tucked in by trees and foliage. Private. Clever touches in bowls. Pumped up bikes. So close to the Atlantic. Local information. Could have stayed a week. Great that they accommodated our dog.

Reservation side very amenable, since I changed the dates.

Internet signal was weak, though. TV buffering. And the door to the patio sticks a bit. Maybe a tiny soap bar.

Great place to stay though. Will come back when the spring break traffic is not as bad.

Clean, comfortable, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay here, the house is very clean, comfortable and convenient. Short walk to the beach, parks, restaurants and shopping. Short drive to historic Melbourne and more restaurants, bars and shopping. I would stay here again next time I'm in the area. Owners had snacks waiting for me and my dog. Cupboards were stocked with coffee, condiments and spices. Bathroom has soap, shampoo and more. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush.
