About Dawn Balzarano

We enjoy our home so much we want to share it with others! The house was built in 1964 and since it was mostly original we decided to go with the 1960s very modern decor style. We love it and we know you will as well. We travel and work many other places, so we have opened our home for others to enjoy!

Dawn Balzarano purchased this house in 2012

Why Dawn Balzarano chose Indialantic Heights

It is close to the beach and the inter-coastal waterway, and our home is in a quiet and safe neighborhood with great neighbors. You can walk or bike to the beach, the waterway, coffee, bars and a bunch of restaurants! It is a very fun, bright and cheery Mid Century Home that will just make you happy!

What makes this house unique

We have a lot of amenities for you to use while visiting our home. Everything for a day at the beach plus fishing gear, a metal detector and golf clubs even! For fun in the yard, there is a bocce ball court, Frisbees, and a croquet set! We also have books to read, Wifi, basic cable, a DVD player (with a few movies), a large amount of CDs to listen to, around 20 games to play. And we have an outdoor shower with hot and cold water!
