The location is a dream: The property is located close to the end of a cul-de-sac in a very peaceful and friendly residential community in the middle of the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge stretches 20 miles along the barrier island from Melbourne Beach down to Wabasso Beach and offers a wide variety of hiking trails, as well as areas for picnics, fishing and wildlife observation. According to their website, this nature refuge protects 'the most significant area for loggerhead sea turtle nesting in the Western Hemisphere, and the most significant area for green turtle nesting in North America.' It is also a nesting ground for leatherback turtles, the largest and rarest sea turtles. The house is also just 4 miles to Sebastian Inlet State Park, where there is excellent snorkeling and fishing, and less than 2 miles to the indoor and outdoor recreational offerings of the South Beach Community Park.
Directly across the water from the house is a restricted tract of woods providing the yard and pool area with quietness and privacy. The mouth of Mullet Creek, which leads to the Indian River, is about 300ft (100 m) down the canal. The covered dock is equipped with a boat lift, fresh water, electricity and a sink for cleaning the catch-of-the-day. An ocean kayak is available for exploring the calm waters off the dock, where manatees and dolphins are regularly spotted.
The backyard faces due south, so in the cool months, the sun crosses in the southern sky shining directly on the new solar panels for heating the pool, but crosses to the north during the summer. Both lanai/patio and pool are inside a screened enclosure so you can enjoy swimming and fresh steaks from the grill without the bother of those pesky bugs.
The private access to the community beach is just an easy ¾ mile (about 1 km) walk or bike ride up the street. Upon return to the house, you are greeted by the lush, xeriscape front yard, with its live oak and ligustrum casting shadows on the thoughtfully landscaped indigenous ground cover and grasses.
In addition to the parks and recreation activities in the area, other attractions include Cape Canaveral (1h), Orlando (1.5h) and Disney World (2h).

About the owner: We are a German/American couple that met in Florida and have since moved to Germany and have a family with three children.
Why the Owner Chose Sunnyland Beach, FL, USA:
We chose this house as a place to have unforgettable vacations with our family. While searching for a vacation house, we looked for a property with a pool and private dock because we wanted our teen and pre-teen kids to be able to enjoy swimming, sailing, paddling and other water activities without depending on us to drive them around and figuring out how to transport ocean kayaks or a small sailboat with a rental car. At the same time, we wanted to be within short walking/biking distance of a beach, so us adults could enjoy long walks in the sand and the kids could enjoy surfing. We also wanted the peacefulness of a single-family home in a quiet residential area away from the commotion of the party areas. It was a difficult search, but we eventually stumbled across this gem of a home that met all of our wishes.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The amazing view from the kitchen and dining room table looks over the pool, past the dock and out over the foliage of the nature refuge just across the canal. With the pool, dock, and beach, the recreational possibilities are numerous.
