Three additional bedrooms with a second master and separate surf motif bedroom all with designated bathrooms. New HD TV, A/V equipment, and gaming consoles. Two of the bedrooms and two living spaces open to pool terrace. A 2-car garage, private auto court, and a dozen coconut palms are on a large fenced and hedged inviting property. Everything here is at the ready. A private home furnished with art, antiques, and all the comforts of home.

About Raphael

We are the new owners of 1025 Reef Road and intend to continue to share this special house. Our family was looking for a home away from our home in Miami and kept coming back to Vero Beach. We love its access to nature, the quiet beaches, and the friendliness of the town. We know you will enjoy Vero Beach, too.

Raphael purchased this house in 2013

Why Raphael chose Vero Beach

This house reminded us of a beach house in style and spirit of those we knew on the East Coast. It is located directly across from the beach access, meaning we are 'oceanfront' in that there are no homes between us and the beach. The park is a protected tortoise habitat, and you see them out roaming about nearly every time you stroll to the beach. We also have the Loggerhead and Leatherback sea turtles here in season, on our beach, nesting at night. The beach in this section of Vero is wide, quiet, and very private.

What makes this house unique

This is a large, classically-decorated private home with three separate living areas indoors and three distinct outdoor gathering spaces. We loved the space, so just finished major renovations installing tile floors throughout the first floor, gutting 2 1/2 baths, completely updating the kitchen creating open access to the family room and pool patio. We have a Kayak, beach chairs, two bicycles, games/beach toys, and fishing equipment here for guests to use.

Beautiful home, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

House is spacious, beautifully furnished and with great outdoor spaces... plus is equipped with everything you might need! We were 8 adults and really enjoyed our stay! Even though property is not on the beach, it just takes a two minute walk to get there... can even hear the ocean from the house!

The house provided the perfect setting for our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be not just lovely and well situated near the beach, but also well equipped for a family gathering. It provided ample space for us to spend a week with our children and grandchildren, with both comfortable common space as well as 3 great separated bedroom/bathroom areas. The kitchen had just about everything we needed for a busy family, and even for entertaining a large group for a 100th birthday party. The pool provided hours of splashing fun for all the children, and the outdoor space was perfect for our needs. Raphael was quick to respond to our few questions and most accommodating. Many Thanks for a wonderful week!! We hope to return for the 101st birthday.

A beautiful house with wonderful amenities. A lovely pool, beautiful kitchen and close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and everyone in the family loved it. The house was huge, the kitchen beautiful and well stocked. The grandkids loved the pool and getting to the beach was fast and easy. The neighborhood was quiet and very nice.

Hope to come back to this house again!

It was a perfect stay that we'll certainly do again!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described. It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable! It had everything that was needed for a great stay - plenty of clean towels, lots of beach equipment, and so much space! We rode bikes, played ping pong, and slept very comfortably. All the rooms were updated and spotless, and no two rooms were alike. The home was a perfect mix of modern luxuries and contemporary comfort. ...and the kitchen! Wow, the kitchen was very large and well stocked. The backyard was huge and the pool was clean, clear and great. It was the perfect cool off after a long beach day. Speaking of, the beach was a 3 minute walk right across the street from the home, and the privacy it provided was a surprising and pleasant change from the overcrowded beaches of south Florida. The neighborhood was very well-kept and very close to some great dining and easy shopping.

Every year for the past 5 years we have traveled to Sanibel Island for a family vacation, after staying here, we decided that Vero is our future destination!

If there's anything that I could nitpick, I would prefer King-sized beds over the queens that the home provided, but again, that's a nitpick as the beds were all very comfortable!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, Raphael! We hope you are still renting next June as we can't imagine going to Vero and stay anywhere else!

Fabulous Stay for our Daughter's Destination Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter planned her destination wedding in Vero Beach at Waldo's Secret Garden for April 23, 2016. We started searching for homes to rent for our family in May , 2015 and came upon this fabulous home. We planned to arrive on Thursday, April 21 and rent to the following Thursday, April 28.Communication with the owner (Raphael) was extremely positive and she was flexible with our dates. We were a group of 10 (which included my 1 year old granddaughter). While the property sleeps 8 + pack 'n play for the baby, we were able to bring an air mattress for one of my nephews who would only be there for the weekend. There was no high chair for the baby so a trip to Walmart netted a perfect solution at an extremely reasonable price. Also, with Sam's Club there in Vero we were able to purchase items for the duration of the week and not have to run back and forth to the grocery store.

From the moment we arrived at the home, we knew we had made an excellent choice. House has everything your could possibly need.

We had other family & friends staying in hotels and when they visited us in the rental home, they were all extremely complimentary and even remarked that the house looked like we lived there! The entire experience (wedding, rental home, beach, pool, cooking, entertaining, etc.) were exactly how we imagined when we made the plans in 2015. Should we decide to return to Vero Beach again, this home would be our first choice. Thank you Raphael for the extra's you provided to make our daughters wedding dream come true. This property is truly "paradise"!
