Why Steven Vitale chose Stuart

Historic Charm with modern conveniences in the heart of beautiful Downtown Stuart on the St. Lucie River.

What makes this house unique

I love the original Florida Heart Pine flooring in these buildings and I love the views of the St. Lucie River from our porch/sundeck located in the front of the main hotel buildings and I love relaxing on the front porch of our historic guest house, 'The Blue House.' I also love strolling the Riverwalk and watching sailboats pass and the mullet jump. I also love the smells of the delicious food being prepared by the restaurants on our premises while sitting outside viewing our beautiful Florida Sunsets.
