About Christine

I have enjoyed living in my home for over 30 years. Now it is time to share the experience with you. Currently living nearby, I will be avaliable if you need me.

Being a retired Hospice worker, I enjoy making people feel comfortable. When you smile upon seeing my cottage, it will make my day! My goal is to provide you with the best vacation experience possible! Please enjoy my home. You will be glad you chose to stay at Christine’s Coastal Cottage!

Christine purchased this house in 1984

Why Christine chose Melbourne Beach

Melbourne Beach is truly a gem of the south. The neighborhood is safe and tranquil. Often at night I am lulled to sleep by the sound of waves and awaken gently by the chirping of birds. Then I walk to the beach with coffee in hand to see the sunrise.

What makes this house unique

It's so nice to take a break from driving. Walking or riding one of the property bicycles to the beach or river pier and local establishments is unique.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in your lovely home for the week, thank you so much! The backyard is truly beautiful and private, we all enjoyed relaxing, barbecuing, and the short walks to the ocean beach. The kids loved playing in the pool, running around the backyard, getting ice cream cones from the shop around the corner, playing in the sand, and looking for lizards :)

Thanks again for all your hospitality, and all the great memories we gained from our stay!

Very quite and relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay the first week of April 2018. The house is very clean with a beautiful backyard. Very close to everything you need. A little market and a couple places to eat within a few short blocks. It a good place to sit back and unwind and enjoy your family. A house rental with bikes is also a really plus and there is 2 real nice bikes.

Thanks Christine for sharing your rental with us.

Three weeks of fun and sun in lovely Florida home

  • 4 of 5

Our family of three generations enjoyed the immaculate and well-maintained home, beautiful pool and landscaping. It is a few blocks from the uncrowded beaches and ocean-side and river-side parks. AC and beds are very comfortable; the screened porch for meals and bird watching; hot and cold outside shower made it easy to go from beach to pool. Lots of beach towels, water toys and wheeled cart, two good bikes and helmets. Fine TV but other than the Olympics and bits of news it was off. Spices and coffee were there to start us off, with great shopping and dining nearby.

Our birthday celebration at Djon's Steak and Lobster House was made extra-special by the waiters and staff. The little town center is nearby, with library, which happened to have its annual sale (a bonus for us readers) and a market chock full of foods, beverages and groceries. The area is quiet and neighbors, friendly--we all went to the beach to watch the perfect NASA/NOA satellite launch. Yes, we would enjoy coming again.
