About Rosa Liu
We are a native Floridian and a midwest transplant with young children who enjoy the charm and beauty that old Florida has to offer. As busy professionals living in South Florida, we enjoy coming to Melbourne Beach to escape the stresses of everyday living.
Rosa Liu purchased this House in 2011
Why Rosa Liu chose Indian River Oaks
After an exhaustive search up and down the east and west coasts of Florida for the perfect vacation home, we finally settled on Melbourne Beach as one of the few places that still embodies all the charms that Florida has to offer: friendly people, untouched nature and empty beaches. This home is full of character. Built in 1979, it has been newly renovated with attention to preserving the original design and cozy beach-front cottage feel. The home has more privacy than most of the other homes in the area. Centrally located just north of the Sebastian Inlet, you are a hop skip and jump from beaches, parks and museums. It is located midway between 'hip' downtown Melbourne and upscale Vero Beach with Disney World/Orlando and the Kennedy Space Center/Cape Canaveral within an easy day trip. Plenty of restaurants, shopping, the Vero Beach Outlets, antique shops and nightlife nearby.
What makes this House unique
You will not find another property this unique in the area. One step inside the house and you will fall in love with the panoramic views of the ocean which are even more spectacular from the 3rd floor. Your large front yard has a patio area, tree house and hammock. Your backyard is the beach! We have given special attention to all the details that will make a vacation home relaxing and welcoming. Enjoy the things you never can in your busy life...read a book, enjoy a relaxing day on the sand soaking up the sun, paint a landscape or just lay in your hammock. For the more adventuresome, plenty of water sports are available: paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking, boating, windsurfing, and the list goes on. Fish from the shore or charter a boat. Search for hidden treasures in the sand and find out why it is called Treasure Coast.

Exceeded my expectations!
I thought maybe the photos of this place were too good to be true. Not so! This cozy beach cottage is nicely decorated and well situated. I fell asleep watching the clouds dance across a full moon and awoke to beautiful sunrises. The owners were very accommodating. They provided beach chairs, umbrellas, etc.
I would definitely recommend this gem to anyone looking for a quiet, secluded beach experience.
Relaxation by the sea!
Amazingly gorgeous ocean front home. The waves soothe you to sleep. This fresh clean home has all the amenities of home! We had an unforgettable time. Book ur next vacation here!
My husband and I have spent Feb and March for the last three years in this beautiful beach front home. We plan on returning for many years. The serenity and the privacy are only matched by the incredible ocean views. As in other reviews the house is very well appointed and you are in need of nothing. If we had a question the owner is quick to respond, besides being a truly nice person. You can be assured that spending a vacation there will not be disappointing., a truly wonderful experience!
This was our first experience with homeaway. We were worried and researched many options, but liked this house the most. We had apprehensions up until the last moment.
All for no reason! This extraordinary house is located directly on the beach, where the bedroom window overlooks the ocean. In the early morning we greeted the dawn and saw the dolphins. The house is very nice with great decor, the hosts have very good taste.
Private beach, which for us was very important. We fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. The most amazing memory was when we saw the birth of the baby turtles, it was unforgettable!
Rosa, the hostess is splendid. She answered our text messages and was very kind and polite.
We really enjoyed our stay it was unforgettable, we will definitely come back !!
Thank you Rosa
The PERFECT Beach House on the Atlantc Coast
What a wonderful week that was!!!! We stayed there in early August 2015 with 2 adults and two kids and we really enjoyed the house, the beach and the surroundings. The infrastructure is perfect with a general stor in walking distance, a Publix market 15 min away and everything else available, from waves, great sandy beach, beach toys and various decks and patios to hang out.
The house is not exactly as described in the posting, it is even better! A lot of nice details, great set up of the interior and the location outside the city limits is just perfect. We heard no noise - except the waves and we were so happy our first of four weeks in Florida started out that perfect.
The contact with the very friendly owner was easy from the getgo and yes, we would definitely come back to the house if at all possible in the future.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful beach house with us Ms. Liu!
The prefect quiet vacation!
The house is amazing, right on the secluded beach not a thing to be desired. The surf fishing is great. There are bikes for the short ride to the local bait shops, restaurant or state park. When the owner says fully equipped, the only thing you'll need is your food. The views are amazing, it sits back off the road. Even the drive up from the road is great! The beach is quiet we saw less than 15 other people on any given day and it's prime time. It's a 15 minute drive to shopping, golf or anything else but seems like your miles from civilization. If you're looking for a relaxing time in an incredible house with amazing views and the beach literally steps from your home this is the place to take your family. We will definitely be back!
