Car: Recommended

The Beach Cottage is conveniently located on Hwy A1A between Sebastian Inlet and the center of Old Melbourne Beach. Absolutely pristine virtually private beaches where you can spend the days fishing, swimming, and relaxing. The cottage is located directly on the ocean so enjoying your morning coffee and watching the sunrise is a highlight. If your interest include shopping and museums Melbourne has quite a few to offer and Sebastian Inlet has a treasure and fishing museum. There are many wild life refuges and sanctuaries to enjoy on bike, kayak or walking. Vero Beach is a short ride down the coastal highway where you can enjoy shopping, fine dining, and several spas. If the large resort parks are your interest Disney and Orlando are a short ride across the beach line. In 90 minutes you can be in the heart of Orlando. The Cape and SPACE are located about 45 minutes north. For the fisher person the area provides world class surf fishing and there are several charter services available for river and ocean fishing. This truly is a slice of Paradise!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Paradise Found is a 'happy' accident! I (Julia) grew up in the Sebastian/Vero area and loved being a child on the beaches here. My parents have always lived in Florida, but my life has taken me in several different directions. Joe and I were fortunate to find this special place and we are now so pleased to share it with our guests It truly is 'Old Florida' and a slice of Paradise.

Why the Owner Chose New Melbourne Beach, FL, USA:
There is nothing more special than having a wonder of nature at your door step. The Atlantic Ocean is a mighty and powerful thing full of interest and wonder. The beauty of the area abounds. Each season brings it's own special circumstances: Fishing, shelling, birds and the magnificent turtles that have nested here for centuries. Looking over the ocean and viewing the manatee, dolphins, fish and the occasional whale are truly spectacular. Of course just relaxing and pondering over the energy the ocean creates isn't bad either. The life force of the ocean is ever evolving and to have the chance to be apart no matter how short is priceless.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The unique benefit of this property is a virtually private beach. This truly is 'Old Florida'. There are no high rises, commercial traffic or other distractions. This is a very private part of the beach with private access. Yet! You are close to the things you want. Shopping and necessities are a short drive or bicycle ride. Historic sites are close by: Sebastian Inlet, The Cape and even the Orlando theme parks are within an easy commute. It's the best of both worlds. The guest unit provides a private accommodation with exclusive amenities of a stand alone property- while maintaining affordable beachside accommodations.
