About Maria Arroyave
I fell in love with Vero Beach in the 1990’s, when I brought my two young boys here from Fort Lauderdale to learn surfing. I liked Vero’s barrier island so much that I sold my medical practice and moved here. Now that the boys are grown up and on their own I love sharing the magic of my Surf Lane home with those who appreciate this very unique part of Florida as much as I. My early years were spent in an American-staffed International school, followed by medical school, in Colombia. Though my parents were of modest means they managed to make sure all six of us were at least bilingual by graduation. After Residency in the Panama Canal Zone U.S. Army Hospital I completed my Pediatrics training in Orlando, then practiced Pediatrics for the better part of two decades in south Florida. I take personal pride in hosting guests at Surf Lane, and enjoy doing everything I can to make their vacations memorably wonderful.
Maria Arroyave purchased this House in 2004
Why Maria Arroyave chose Vero Beach
Vero Beach’s barrier island, between the placid Indian River lagoon (inter coastal waterway) and miles of fine sandy beaches on the Atlantic ocean, is very unlike most other parts of Florida – little traffic most of the year, tasteful and carefully planned commercial development (two story limit except for two grandfathered 9 story buildings), tranquil neighborhoods, and almost no souvenir or t-shirt shops. The beach a hundred steps from my Surf Lane home is near a lifeguard station where more than two dozen bathers may only happen during Spring Break.
What makes this House unique
My Surf Lane vacation home is at the end of a cul-de-sac in a tranquil neighborhood, one home from the ocean. It is close enough to highway A1A to be convenient, but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The location affords instant private beach access, yet is shielded from constant wind and sea spray, and rents at more economical rates than ocean front homes.

A wonderful Spring Break
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Vero Beach and in this home. Maria was a welcoming and responsive host with great ideas for activities, dinner, and shopping. The home's location to the beach was so convenient with a short walk on a paved path. It was like having the beach all to yourself. The ocean was comfortable and the waves spot-on for body surfing and boogie boarding. The sand was great for sports and building sand animals. We also loved the pool and patio area. The pool was the perfect size for a few laps and lots of fun water games. There were many different seating areas outside to accommodate the sun bather, the reader, the morning coffee drinker or the napping hammock goer. Maria just added a beautiful fire table and comfy chairs for enjoying the night time stars. The beds were very comfortable and the house very spacious for our group of 7. The family room was super for playing games and puzzling. The kitchen offered many convenient appliances that allowed us to cook in. The beach umbrella and buggy were also great helpers. The home was also close to the supermarket, beach shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend this home for a wonderful week in Vero Beach.
Lovely home, steps from the beach, helpful owner
Our family of 7 spent Christmas at Maria's lovely home in Indian Shores at the end of a quiet street just a short 1 minute walk to the beach.The home has wonderful gathering areas; the outdoor pool area is gorgeous. The weather was on the cool side for most of our stay, so we didn't use the pool, but we did spend time on the beach, which is lovely.
The house is very comfortable; kitchen is well-equipped. We didn't use the outdoor grill, but we did enjoy breakfast outdoors on the lovely patio every morning... peaceful and serene way to start the day.
Our time passed much too quickly - we didn't get to use the ping pong table, and the waves were too big for the kayaks and boogie boards, but it's great having those amenities available. We did enjoy riding the bikes up the street to the Village Shops and to the Village Beach Market - both very easy and pleasant bike rides. Having bikes is a really nice bonus.
Maria was very helpful and accommodating and couldn't have been sweeter. Many thanks for the lovely tree and for helping to make our Christmas together special. Highly recommend staying at this lovely home!
Thank you Jorie for your lovely review. It is my greatest reward as I love what I do.
You were wonderful to work with from day one with your great and uplifting communication skills. I hope to meet you next time!
Beautiful home, fantastic beach
Great home for a large family with babies. We found everything we needed, 2 high chairs, 2 pac n play infant beds. The kitchen is well equipped. The pool patio was the place where we gathered daily. Simply a wonderful family time. Will come back soon.
Great spot for family vacation!
This house was very nice and included all amenities. The owner, Maria, was very easy to get in touch with and communicate with and was very responsive. The house is in a good section and the beach is just a short walk out the back down a private path. My children enjoyed the pool at the house. I would recommend the house and Maria!
Good location with pool and beach in backyard
Great location with beach a short walk out the back door. Pool is a plus to have when the beach is hot. Owner is extremely. helpful and checks in with you. Although, equipped for families, there are a lot of nick nicks that young children can get a hold of. We had to remove a lot of those items and put out of the children's reach. Recommendation: put proper shades/blinds on the windows. Most of them have a sheer curtain with rod and do not shield the bright light in the morning. The windows are arched so the top section has nothing on it.
My family and i loved our stay at this home everything we needed was there, the home is beautiful. The pool in the house is paradise,short 1 minute walk to the beach on private path was the best part of all. Pictures dont do justice you have to see it to believe it .Thanks Maria for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
