About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom oceanfront condo in private resort community

Gorgeous ocean beach getaway in sought after Indian River Plantation resort, a Marriott 4 star resort with direct access to the ocean and the private beach. Double balcony with unobstructed views of the ocean and private pool area. Lake views from the guest bedroom and entryway. This condominium is totally renovated with sand color tone tiles, granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom and living room open to the balcony viewing the ocean and private pool area. The kitchen and living room have a view of the ocean. The apartment is very quiet and family friendly.

Many resort restaurants, pools with spas, and activities are within walking distance and are also accessible by the resort tram service. Many times, my family and I have ridden the tram service just to tour the grounds and enjoy the open ocean breezes constantly present in this paradise getaway.

About Chris Sherlock

We have been enjoying this hutchinson island paradise for over 20 years, since before our 2 children were born. Originally from the northeast, we have migrated southwest for work opportunities in Texas and now are enjoying the desert of Arizona. Now that our children are grown, we hope to enjoy more time together, walking the beaches and seeing the sights of our great country. We would love for you to share this beautiful paradise oceanfront experience with us.

Chris Sherlock purchased this condo in 2012

Why Chris Sherlock chose Florida Central East

Our private condominium in the Indian River Plantation is the perfect blend of resort style enjoyment with the chance to remain in our private and quiet sanctuary. Come and enjoy the private beach or walk down to the resort beach area to enjoy some people watching, shelling, water surfing, boating, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, etc, etc, etc. It has it all right out the front door.

What makes this condo unique

Ahh the feeling of peaceful vacation abounds once you travel over the causeway bridge and smell the ocean air. Feel the stress drip away as you enter the resort and drive to the private Spoonbill community. One of the best feelings is waking up to the ocean waves crackling the shore and realizing the only decision to make is which activity to enjoy this new day.

Very nice place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed spending Spring Break in this lovely condo. The location is very nice. It's a short walk to the beach and we had a great view of the pool. There were many places to walk/run, play golf and relax. Paddle board and jetski rental is a 10 minute walk from the condo. This is a very family and retiree oriented area which was exactly what we were looking for.

The condo and property were very nice and had everything we needed. The condo was neat and clean. The pool was maintained every morning. My only suggestions would be to have some rugs for the bathrooms and maybe update the TVs in the bedrooms (they were difficult to get to work). Other than that we loved our time there and would certainly stay there again.

Just right

  • 4 of 5

Great location, convenient for walking, enjoying the beach. Quiet area. Plenty of space inside and enjoyed the balcony - views of the beach. Well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, utensils). Lots of toys and chairs for people to use were in the closet.

would have given 5 stars, but the control of lights from light switch was not functional.

Example, spare room, you have to turn lamp on at lamp. Would be convenient to flip switch on wall to make light come on. Also could not figure out how to make the light over table area (dining room) come on.

Of the places we've rented, this is by far our favorite.

  • 5 of 5

We'd had a series of seasonal rentals that were sold and no longer available. We joked with the Realtor that if they had any ocean front homes that weren't selling, they should rent them to us, as we were on a roll.

But when we arrived here, we found what we hope will be a year-after-year winter getaway for us.

Great location for ocean sunrises, occasional thunderstorm watching and the daily commute of Pelicans going back and forth to work. It's easy-on-easy-off at the Stuart end of the island, with lots of great dining options nearby.

A well equipped kitchen, everything nicely furnished, clean and neat.

There were a couple of VERY minor issues that were promptly and professionally resolved.

We're just a couple weeks from heading south to get out of a cold Michigan winter, and we couldn't be happier to going back to our ocean front get away for a couple of months.

Beautiful location-Ocean Front Condo in Indian River Plantation,Spoonbill Resort!

  • 5 of 5

Hello Mr. Sherlock,

So sorry for the delay in submitting the review of our stay at your Spoonbill condo; I tried twice a while back but got the message like "Network problem I think". Not sure of the message anymore.

This was our first time renting in Stuart and we really enjoyed the stay at your condo at IRP Spoonbill Resort in May.

We were 2 families and a child, my brother and wife, their daughter and granddaughter of 2; we were 5 adults and a child.

The condo has ocean views from both living area and master bedroom, (my husband and I had the privilege to stay at the master bedroom with the pool and ocean view from the private balcony), which was ideal since we are early risers, would have coffee on the balcony and would take long walks on the beach at sunrise and met some nice and friendly people from Spoonbill and the adjacent Pelican complex.

We really enjoyed the fact that the pool was conveniently located right below our balcony so that we would always see the rest of the family and go up and down if needed something and the dune walk right by the pool.

The kitchen was fully equipped and organized to prepare a complete meal for a big family. The dining room table sat 6 or more people.

We didn't do much cooking at the condo since we were visiting our sister and family in Stuart. We ate mostly out at our sister’s restaurant, Gigi’s Restaurant and pizza, authentic Italian food on Jensen Beach Boulv., and we also enjoyed a meal with the whole family at Bonefish Grill in Stuart.

We would have breakfast and a light lunch on the leaving room balcony or by the pool and picnic area; we used the BBQ grills once as well.

The laundry facilities right by the front of our condo.

We found all we needed such as; beach chairs, beach towels and kids beach toys, coloring books and toys for our little treasure. The little one, at times, enjoyed the little tot’s park right by the front of Spoonbill next to the tennis court and the train ride on the Indian River Plantation.

Very conveniently located close to everything, the Fresh Food Market, Publics, parks and museums, shopping in Stuart and the Treasure Coast Mall.

We would definitely come back and hope soon and recommend to family and friends.

One small suggestion,… I would upgrade the guest room with new curtains, a bit less fabric and just little new decor pieces in the leaving room.

Thank you! Pierina and family.

Ps. Ms. Wendy , the rental agent was very professional

The condo is located on the beach in the Indian River Plantation resort, a Marriott 4 star resort property. There are many very close by amenities which offer sport activities such as tennis courts, fitness center, golf, surfboard and kayak rentals.

The community is family oriented with activities organized for children. There are several restaurants and organized activities in and around the resort community such as restaurants, sports and activities in town.

If you prefer to cook , there is a grocery store 2 minutes away by car or a 10 minute walk. There is a tram shuttle to transport people around the resort so that you can visit all of the resort pools and restaurants.
