About the property

Loblolly (original name given home) is a unique and special place to make lasting family memories. Your special vacation home has been featured on the front cover of SPACES September/October 2008 Issue (space-coast style and design magazine). Loblolly was a featured property in last year's Tropical Trail Spring Bloom Tour. Your vacation home sits directly on the Intercoastal waterway. The property was built in the early 70s and designed to be a place to retire. Loblolly was purchased from the original family in 2007. Just imagine... Evenings on the 2 tier beach relaxing watching the sunset.... enjoying the dock, kids in playground next to you while you sunbath at pool. The pool was designed for kids very large walk in beach area, a family stroll around Loblolly trail- a coquina path that circles the property...

Spectacular property with lots to do for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We were 8 adults and 7 kids from age 3-9.

The pictures don’t do the place justice as the setting is gorgeous and decor is incredible with lots of little touches to give the place so much character.

There was no shortage of things to do without having to get in the car: pool, hot tub, kayaking, paddle boarding, ping pong, croquet, and other various lawn games. And when the sun goes down, just as many indoor activities.

We have stayed a some pretty nice properties before, but this one was incredible!

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Property for a group or family gathering. Has something for everyone. Home is fully stocked with every you could want. We had a family reunion for siblings with spouses, the grandparents and the cousins. The property was prefect as the cousins stayed in the boys and girls bunk rooms and the parents and grandparents all had there own rooms.

Home is stocked with game room, games, puzzles, water toys, fishing supplies, and beach supplies. Pool with jacuzzi and plenty and places to lounge outside. Dock with seating area to enjoy the amazing sunsets. Kitchen is a gourmet kitchen with top of the line equipment and there also a and outdoor kitchen for the cooking crowd. Thank you Andrea for sharing your home with us.

Sophisticated and Charming

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group stay here for the Thanksgiving Holidays. The property and amenities were unexpectedly delightful. Our family will cherish the memories made here for years to come. In all honesty the photos and video do not capture how wonderful Loblolly really is. From the excellent bedding, to the kitchen and dining details, the pin ball machines and surf boards, we used everything it had to offer. We caught fish right at the end of the dock. I must also comment on the pristine cleanliness of the entire house and property. 5 plus stars! Our group included teenagers to elderly, and I can't imagine a place that could have worked for us any better to dine together, stay active, and still have plenty of privacy for all. I rarely write reviews, and certainly not 5 stars, but Andrea deserves praise for making this home a true gem.

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for some of my coworkers who were coming to the area for a week of training. We needed something close to the office, large enough to accommodate 3 parties for 40 people, and as many beds as possible. This home exceeded our expectations! It is decorated beautifully, was very comfortable, and we truly didn't need anything except for our toothbrushes. The owners were exceptionally gracious, and we can't wait to stay here again. Thank you so much, Peter and Andrea! We thoroughly enjoyed your gorgeous home.

Our 11th time at the house !!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends love this place. We have been coming here for over 10 years. Always and exceptional experience. If you want to get away from Miami with only a 3 hour easy drive or fly in from New York, you will not be disapointed. Thank you to the great family that allowed us the use of their home which has give us a lifetime of memories.
