At home on the beach
The four of us walk through the front door all the way through the house out the back straight to the ocean. It was the most beautiful blue, you have ever seen.
After that we admired the landscape and the backyard (which is phenomenal!)
Best part about the backyard..... 2 amazing outdoor showers ( with hot water). Needless to say, you can tell we spent the majority of our time outside😁�
Then we headed back into the cottage to settle in. It was like stepping back in time with modern conveniences, beautiful, comfortable..... it's just the perfect older beach house that the four of us remember from our childhood. We loved it so much that we just did not want to leave!!!
Miss Julia is amazing!!!
Hopefully we'll get to have that beautiful experience again soon🦈�🏄�♀️👍�
Excellent and romantic place to stay:)
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. The cottage was very spacious and comfortable. Beautiful decor.... just what we were looking for. Very well equipped. Our Yorkee enjoyed the grass:) we enjoyed the beach. Very private. Miles to walk which we did every day:) We are definitely planning on coming back. Julia made sure that our stay was very memorable:)
A week of beach heaven...
Great house and location. Beach was pretty much ours with only a dozen or so walkers each day. Entire experience from check in to check out was good. The dogs loved the walks on the beach and the shaded yard too. We didn't want to leave. Looking forward to a return trip next year.
This is a wonderful property, and you could not ask for a better location! And Julia is wonderful!!
Wonderful family getaway!
We had an amazing time in the pink cottage. We enjoyed the privacy of the back yard and beach access! Julia is a wonderful host with every amenity thoughtfully provided. We hope to able to return again soon!
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!

About Julia Branch Hill
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.
Julia Branch Hill purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Julia Branch Hill chose New Melbourne Beach
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.
