About Lou Dickinson
My husband and I retired three years ago. We purchased our dream location four years ago. Everyday we still keep pinching ourselves to see if it is real. Beautiful ocean breezes, palm trees and sunshine. Lots of golf for him, and lovely retirement for me. Bonus is, no more Pennsylvania winters. We loved our home of 40 years, but are at a point in our lives that we no longer want to deal with snow and ice. We have four grown children, six grandchildren. All love to visit, and we welcome them anytime we can see them. Our unit is next door to our vacation rental. It has been an exciting venture to completely renovate and furnish this wonderful gem when it became available last year. We hope you will visit and learn what a wonderful spot Melbourne Beach is.
Lou Dickinson purchased this Townhome in 2016
Why Lou Dickinson chose New Melbourne Beach
Perfect location in an unspoiled setting. Melbourne Beach is a large protected turtle area. Archie Carr state property is all around us, so there are no huge condominiums allowed here. You need to travel about 12 miles north to find this type of environment. We have great shopping, quaint old towns, art exhibits, live theatre, multiple types of both casual and fine dining.
What makes this Townhome unique
This vacation home is very private and tranquil. Everything has been newly painted, including ceilings. The floors are completely new and probably my favorite feature. They are porcelain tile and look like you are walking on weathered boardwalk. Newly added, fenced in yard. So much fun and great to have in a beach area. There is plenty of action and places to see within a 15 to 30 minute drive. Cocoa Beach is about 30 minutes away, Cape Canaveral 45 minutes. The Brevard Zoo is 30 minutes away and is a wonderful day trip for every member of the family. Sebastian Inlet is nine miles south, where you can fish, check out the manatees and if you are lucky see the dolphins. Johns Fishing Camp is five miles south and has wonderful paddleboard instruction. If you would rather just gather your chair and book and walk across the street for a lovely day. Sit outside in the evening and enjoy!!!!

This property is located in a gorgeous area! The ocean is right across the street. The home is surrounded by beautiful trees and scrubs, flowers of every color. It is decorated so cute and comfortable to stay in. Neat retreat for couples and families!
Very clean and everything we needed and more. Short walk to the beach. Friendly owners ( fresh baked muffins was a great touch). Would highly recommend.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this property. The homeowners were very friendly and the beach is right across the street. They even had several things to make the stay more comfortable or if we forgot it. We really enjoyed ourselves and would rent this home again if the opportunity ever comes. I highly recommend this property.
AMAZING TIME IN MELBOURNE BEACH!!
Our stay was perfect! The home is beautiful and the owners treat you like family! Lou and Courtney were always available for any questions and recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area. From fishing to surfing to turtle nesting, they had info to help make our stay memorable.
The private beach is amazing! There is literally no one on it.
It's like your own private piece of heaven. We hated to leave! It's just across the street and they have chairs, umbrellas and everything you need to enjoy your stay. My son fished at Sebastian Inlet and it was a short 10 minute drive. My daughter tried surfing right from the beach. Publix is nearby for groceries and there are several decent restaurants in the area. This is a sleepy beach town so not much nightlife. It's the perfect area to get some rest and relaxation.
Do Not Hesitate to book this property!! You will not be disappointed! We can't wait for our next visit!
This was a perfect location for us to spend time with friends and watch the sea turtles. The house was great and had a cute little backyard for our dogs. I would definitely stay here again!
Our stay was short and sweet but definitely enjoyed our accommodations here. The place is clean and homey. Anything you need for the beach they have it. Courtney even made us cookies! Didn’t get the chance to enjoy the wine because of our schedule, but was able to enjoy the beach a little longer before we left. Great place!
