Paradise. We loved it.
Wonderful! A fantastic house and location for a 3-generation reunion. Quiet bedroom for the grandparents, 2 bedrooms for the younger generations. Large living room, game room and eating space for all. Beautiful vistas of the river from the house. Short walk to the beach across a road with hardly any cars. We just loved spending time at the beach and sitting under the tiki hut. Tons of ‘toys’ for a range of ages — buckets and shovels for the youngest kids; kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, etc. for the young at heart. It was perfect. Could have spent a month enjoying it all. A week was too short.
This is a house to fall in love with, and clearly the Biddulphs have for a few generations. It has that old Florida feel . . . . . when life moved at a slower pace. Slow enough to enjoy the pelicans overhead, the waving palm trees, the crashing surf and gorgeous sunsets over the river. So private, so quiet, so beautiful. The sign on the door says “Paradise” and it is.
Great family vacation on the Space Coast
We stayed two weeks at The Beach and River Retreat and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is large enough for a family up to 5 people and even more. The property goes from the Indian River to the Atlantic Ocean so you may enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset. The beach is sandy and you see very few people. You can walk either north or south for kilometres. Close to the home are numerous hiking trails. Do not miss Maritime Hammock. We had the chance to watch a night rocket launch from the beach. Spectacular in the night! Five bicycles are provided with the property. We had a great time at Kennedy Space Center. Do not miss Space Coast River Tours. You may kayak at Honest John just a few kilometres away and see manatees. If you have any questions, just ask Pam the owner and she will answer you promptly. Just two small minus with the property. First Indian River is wide and it can be windy for kayak (go to Honest John in such a case). Second the property needs a little love inside. But these are really minor compared to the numerous advantages of the property. Finally, it is not the place if you are looking for nightlife. It is a quiet and relaxing place.
Wonderful Family place to stay!
First time seeing the beach for my kids and it could not have been a better place for them to experience it. The home & beach were a perfect fit for us.
The house was nice and clean. Great location!
Fantastic Vacation Location
Great location with the beach across the road and the river immediately behind the house.
Check the house before you buy anything there are plenty of items already available to you.
The beach is a little rough for swimming, although great for boogie boards etc. which are provided fro you, we still spent a few hours each day walking the beach and enjoying the sun. We also went to Sebastian inlet literally 5 minutes drive down the road which is great for swimming, snorkeling and exploring for crabs, fish etc. We saw turtles lays eggs on the beach, dolphins, pelicans diving for fish and even sharks catching fish, we also had a great time fishing. The game room was fantastic and kept us busy when it was too hot to go outside! We also got to see a rocket launch, which was fantastic!! Overall it was a fantastic holiday, with many memories made!
The only downside to the location was the dyer was not working when we got there, we tried to make do and hang our clothes outside, but it was to humid to dry them. It took five days for the dryer to be fixed, which wasn't great. Pam did offer and did launder our clothes, this may sound great to some, but I would refer to wash my own clothes. This wasn't ideal since we were on the beach each day, with dirty towels etc. Pam did leave a nice bottle of wine for the inconvenience.The outside/yard can do with a little maintenance, but this did not take a way from our vacation.
Best of all worlds being on the beach and Indian River both. Homeowners are amazing!
Property was like being at home. Thought of everything to accommodate a family of seven with kids' ages ranging from 2-18. Enjoyed going into town to explore Melbourne and headed down to Sebastian Inlet to spend a day. Very much geared towards family time together. Game room and board games were a big hit with our family. Easy to cook and groceries about 15 min away. Tried many of the local fares for one meal a day. Rained more than usual for our stay, but enjoyed just being together. We were able to see the loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach every night.
