Serenity Now! Beachhouse 2 Blocks from Ocean. "Sol Y Mar"

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy a beautifully appointed home with access to one of Florida's finest beaches at the end of the street. This is a quiet community of single family homes, ideally located in the heart of Melbourne Beach. Our home is on an "ocean to river" street - two blocks to the water in either direction.

"Sol y Mar" has an upscale-casual feel, combining the relaxed ambience of the beach with fine furnishings. There is a spectacular, private fenced back yard, with a hot tub on the screened porch. Inside, the house is approximately 1500 square feet, all on one level for easy access.

Completely renovated, it has large terra cotta tile floors throughout, a stone fireplace, fully stocked kitchen with granite countertops and designer sink.

The master bedroom is furnished with Tommy Bahama furniture. Plantation style shutters adorn the front windows. Numerous pieces of original artwork add to the home's casual elegance. Both bathrooms have fully tiled showers (no bathtubs).

Our close-in location makes walking or biking an everyday pleasure. Walk to the historic Town Pier for beautiful sunsets. The picturesque town park (tennis courts, basketball, shuffleboard, playground), new library, and local restaurants are also just a few blocks away. There are several golf courses nearby. And within driving distance there is world class fishing, boating and kayaking.

"Sol y Mar" is 60 miles from Orlando International Airport; 5.6 miles from Melbourne Airport. Cocoa Beach and Kennedy Space Center are 25 minutes away. It is 16 miles to Sebastian Inlet State Park. Orlando attractions (Disney, Universal, Sea World) are just over one hour away.

"Sol y Mar" is a gem. It is rare to find Florida beach towns that are not over developed, or overrun by tourists. If you want nightlife and a high-energy beach scene, you may want to look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a peaceful, idyllic spot to enjoy the best of Florida's natural charms, "Sol y Mar" is unparalleled! Feel free to contact us for additional pictures.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5

The name says it all. The house is in a very lovely and quiet neighborhood. This home has all the amenities including a screened-in Florida room and private backyard that is tropical and beautiful. The owners are very responsive to any and all inquiries. My husband, our mini-poodle and I have enjoyed the past two winters in Melbourne Beach and highly recommend the house to others. It is within walking distance to both the ocean and river, the library, post office, market and close to many attractions. In our estimation, this property is perfect for whatever Florida experience you desire.

Excellent Home for my Parents

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I wanted our parents to live close to us in Melbourne Beach! We found the most perfect home at Sol Y Mar. My Mother repeatedly told us she should buy that house, because she loved everything about it. We spent many hours on the big screened porch overlooking the large backyard. It's on a quite street within walking distance of the grocery store, Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. The owners are wonderful and provided everything we needed!

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

Serenity Now is a perfect description! Everything at Sol Y Mar makes you want to shut off your electronic devices, relax and enjoy the peaceful, comfortable surroundings. The listing photos are accurate, but when you experience the house and amenities in person, you'll see you get much more than the photos reflect.

The owners are a pleasure to deal with and provide everything you might need while on vacation. It really is a "home away from home"! Late one evening we played a game called "Outburst" (which we found in one of the closets), and laughed ourselves silly! If we tried that in a hotel room, no doubt the surrounding guests would have complained!

A walk thru the park to the pier on the river at sunset is an absolute is so beautiful! If you travel with your dog, the back yard is completely enclosed and private....nothing for your dog to bark at and zero possibility of getting out or getting lost.

The restaurant on the beach is a fun place! They served a lovely, "al fresco" Sunday breakfast, with soft reggae music playing in the background. There was also a morning yoga class on the beach...and a live band later in the day. (Don't know if they do that every weekend or just Holiday weekends).

We loved it and wish we could have stayed longer!

Paradise to chill-out

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of two retired couples from the UK that had spent quite some time on a busy and very full trip around Central Florida, but who now wanted somewhere to just 'chill-out' for a few days by the beach. We were looking for a well equipped and really comfortable beach house with easy access to shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. We found all these things in abundance at Sol y Mar, and would thoroughly recommend it to everyone. The nearest supermarket was just two blocks away at the junction of Ocean Ave and Orange St, and had everything you would need including the most extensive wine selection that we have ever seen at the beach. Publix also has a large and very well stocked supermarket just 4 miles south on A1A. Three particularly good restaurants we found were Brio's Italian on Vernon St in Melbourne (just over the intracoastal bridge on 192), Skewers Mediterranean Grill (check out their website at and the Long Point Cafe just 20 minutes drive (14 miles) south on A1A where the sea food was the freshest and lightest that we have found anywhere. The two ladies in our group found excellent shopping in downtown Melbourne, and the two gents played a memorable round of golf at Mallard's Landing .... a great value municipal course on Washington Lake Road on the mainland just north of Melbourne.

The owners of Sol y Mar could not have been more helpful in organising our vacation and went out of their way to ensure that we had everything that we needed. We look forward to going back.

Sol y Mar

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for the winter season for the last three years. It's location to this small towns amenities is unbelievable. We are just two blocks from the ocean, two blocks from the Indian River, two blocks from the library, two blocks from a fabulous market and restaurants. There is a large Publix a couple miles south on A1A. The photos don't give this home justice. It has a very well equiped kitchen, large laundry area and enclosed lanai with a hot tub. The landlord has responded promptly to the very few issues that arose. The home is located in a beautiful neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. Our dog loved the large shaded backyard.
