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!

Christine's Shangri La

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend our 42nd wedding anniversary here. - The house

is beautiful, comfortable and cozy. The backyard and the salt water pool make it

a tropical paradise. Surrounded by beautiful palm trees, the yard is so quiet and peaceful.

All you can hear is the wind blowing through the trees. Everything you could need or wish for has been anticipated by your hostess, Christine down to the smallest detail. Set in a quiet neighborhood, you can walk in one direction and be at the beach and see the sun rise, and in the opposite direction and see the sun set over the lagoon. Our granddaughters came and spent one night with us, and were enchanted with the artwork, the beautiful pool that has lights at night that turn the water beautiful colors of blue and purple. It was a wonderful, relaxing 4 days and we can not thank Christine enough for making it so special for us and our family. This is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in. We highly recommend it.

Girls Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom, Sister and myself deiced to plan a spur of the moment girls trip away over Labor Day weekend. We have been to Melbourne many times and usually stay at the same hotel but this time went with renting a house. If you are thinking of renting here DO IT!!!! Christine was the best host we have ever dealt with and couldn't have asked for a better more relaxing weekend! The pool and back yard is AMAZING and Christine provides everything a week long or weekend traveler could ask for!! It was so hard to leave but we now know where we will be staying our next trip to Melbourne Beach and it won't be that hotel!! :-)

Gracious host, beautiful property, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house we have ever rented through VRBO! A short walk to a beautiful beach (the water in August was surprisingly cool & we often had the beach completely to ourselves!)...The home provides an excellent spot from which to explore the Melbourne Beach area. There are several restaurants & shops within easy walking distance, and the home itself is immaculately clean & well equipped with everything you need! Great beach cruisers (we have rented homes with “bikes” before where the frames were held together with duct tape...these beach cruisers are top notch!!), floats & toys for the pool, ample towels, etc.

We loved walking to the beach every morning, then coming back to the house to have coffee on the screened in porch & take a morning dip in the saltwater pool. Our eleven year old daughter loved the tile mosaic sea turtle on the bottom of the pool. You can tell this home is cared for & that the wonderful host, Christine, cares about her guests. Could not have asked for a better stay (or better weather!)....We hope to return!

Excellent Location...Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! If you are thinking of booking this house...JUST DO IT! You will not be disappointed. It is the absolute perfect location, just a couple blocks from the beach, Indian River, shopping, dining, market, etc. The beach is not over crowded and the fishing and surfing is excellent! We caught snook, trout, redfish and sheepshead between the beach and the river.

The house is on a quaint street in a quiet neighborhood and is unbelievably accomodating. Christine didn't miss a beat with all of the "little things" provided. From kitchen tools to bathroom toiletries...just wow! Don't let the square footage fool you...the three rooms are very spacious. Who wants a giant house for a family vacation anyway? You won't be spending much time inside regardless once you see the pool and backyard!

All I can say is I will definitely be back and wouldn't think to book another place. Christine's coastal cottage was just perfect! Thank you, Christine!

Lovely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you need to feel like you are away from home but still have all the comforts and necessities of your home. Christine was super nice from the day we arrived baking cookies and a picture of delicious lemonade! She has thought of every detail to make this an ideal beach house! It was an easy walk down the street to the beach with the cart, umbrellas, chairs and cooler she supplied. The home was very clean as well as the beautiful pool out back. We enjoyed a lot of time outside in the screened in porch. She had board games to play for late night fun! Our daughter got engaged on the beach during out trip so this will always be a special place for us! We can't wait to return!!
