What do we love about vacationing at WHITE SURF? Let me count the ways!
-+- The RESORT POOL -+-
We love drinking margarita's in White Surf's sunny, perfectly landscaped, incredibly private, tropical paradise resort
next to (and often in) the wonderful free-form crystal clear swimming pool
with waterfalls flowing off its multiple stone mountains, and even a coconut tree island,
where green flowering plants are all we see in every direction,
where the sounds and scents of the ocean waves gently call our name from just beyond the tropical forest line,
-+- The BEACH - Round Island Oceanfront Park -+-
We and our children (and sometimes even our kids' ten best friends) love hanging out at Vero Beach's most excellent surfing, boogie boarding and swimming beach,
on the Round Island Oceanfront Park beach, directly adjacent to White Surf (no roads to cross),
and we particularly like the security and safety of having a lifeguard present (88 level steps to the lifeguard station from White Surf);
-+- The IN HOME THEATER -+-
We love eating freshly popped butter popcorn while watching movies, sports and even playing rad video console games on the awesome,
insanely huge, 200 inch, totally high definition, professional Mitsubishi full wall TV / movie system,
with incredible BOSE theater surround sound speakers,
in a sensational in-home 'CHINESE THEATER' setting,
sitting on super comfy reclining leather theater seats, arranged in single, double and even triple seat configurations;
-+- 2 Full KITCHENS, 2 Washers & 2 Dryers! -+-
We appreciate the convenience of being able to divide and conquer the daily cooking and cleaning chores between two fully equipped kitchens,
one full kitchen on the first floor looking out at the resort pool, and one kitchen on the third floor looking out on the Ocean,
and we love being able to divide the daily laundry between two sets of full size washers and dryers on two floors;
-+- The HOT TUB - A Force of Nature -+-
We love sipping fine wine while enjoying the incredibly powerful yet soothing warm water jets in the fabulous hot tub in our very own tropical paradise;
-+- The Fun INDOOR GAMES & SPORTS -+-
We appreciate having super fun indoor games and sports available to keep everyone happy in the evenings, on rainy days, on day after Disney or Universal recuperation days, and on day after sunburn days, including,
the totally addictive, amazing custom-built 3D electronic PINBALL arcade game (seriously, you will have to pull the gamers in your family away from this game) in the game room,
stand-up video ARCADE GAME with all the traditional hits, also in the game room,
along with the Wurlitzer JUKEBOX which plays age-appropriate songs from approximately the years this jukebox was in professional servce, allows everyone to party and dance the nights away,
the new Yamaha electric PIANO (with solid old-style heavy keys) aways makes the musician in the family happy,
Xbox in the bunk bedroom,
ping pong, and foosball outdoors,
all kinds of fun / challenging board and card games are located throughout White Surf,
Direct TV satellite TV opens the door to endless entertainment options on multiple screens located on the 1st and 3rd floors of WHITE SURF,
and of course WIFI throughout the house, on all balconies, and even in the pool area, brings the whole world's entertainment possibilities to White Surf 24/7;
-+- Excellent BASE for Florida Excursions -+-
We like to use our White Surf vacation home as a base for further exploration in Eastern / Central Florida, with key resorts and cities being an easy day trip away from Vero Beach, including: Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, Universal Studios, Cape Canaveral, everglades alligator excursions, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Miami;
-+- The PUBLIC PARKS - Round Island Parks -+-
We love exploring two of Vero Beach's finest public parks, including the kids playground and lifeguarded beach at adjacent Round Island Oceanfront Park (no roads to cross), and
the nature lover wetlands walking and boat trails at Round Island Riverside Park (directly across one street, with protected traffic light), on foot, by bicycle (several available in the garage at White Surf),
and sometimes even in one or two person kayaks (daily Round Island wetlands guided kayak tours available from our friends Rhonda and Steve at Tropical Kayak Tours 772-778-3044 - daily Manatee and Dolphin spottings nearly a certainty);
-+- INCREDIBLE, AWESOME, STUNNING, SPECTACULAR, PANORAMIC, 360° VIEWS ... WOW!!! ... -+-
We and everyone who visits us can't say enough about the views at WHITE SURF - quite simply some of the most spectacular ocean views, ocean sunrises and intracoastal waterway sunsets, that the Florida Treasure Coast has to offer, all from the comfort of the 3rd floor living room, dining room, kitchen, or outside on either the 3rd floor oceanview or the riverview balcony at WHITE SURF.

About Angela Waldrop
The inspiration for WHITE SURF comes from its designer in chief, Liza G, a world renown interior designer who splits her time between luxury home projects in Florida and China. She kept the White Surf design team on their toes as she ensured that we chose, positioned, used and repurposed Chinese antiques in conjunction with modern western furniture and furnishings in the most practical and beautiful settings. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Liza's design direction resulted in White Surf's emphasis on both beauty and usefulness, whereby important and collectible antiques sit side by side with simple but unique countryside items as well as modern appliances, furniture and furnishings. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ The owner's family also owns and operates the largest antiques dealer in Shanghai, China - Green Antiques ____________________________________________________________________________________________ The owner of White Surf is an American lawyer, real estate developer and businessman living in Shanghai China, who regularly spends time with his family at White Surf in beautiful Vero Beach.
Angela Waldrop purchased this House in 2010
Why Angela Waldrop chose South Beach
White Surf was designed and built as the owner's extended family 'keeper' Vero Beach vacation home. Vero Beach is where the folks retired long ago, and where part of the family has relocated. The other siblings and relatives travel to Vero Beach regularly. We love it here! White Surf was designed and built with our own family in mind, and as such, no expense was spared in creating the perfect private resort. This home is both comfortable and fun enough to ensure that even the most jaded high school kid will love her/his vacation here at White Surf!
What makes this House unique
It just doesn't get any better than this! Where do I begin? The resort swimming pool with four waterfalls and air-jets, or perhaps the massive 6 person spa with jets powerful enough to shoot you out of your seat? Or maybe I should talk about eating a meal under the grass umbrella in what feels like an isolated tropical rain forest setting. I could instead focus on the in-home theater with 11 personal recliner seats (and room for another 7 or so bean bag or floor sitters), 200 inch Mitusbuishi high-definition TV system and Bose theater surround system, which happens to be connected to the DISH satellite TV system - great for ballgames or movies, your choice. Or maybe I should mention that the 70 inch TV in the family room outside the theater is connected so that everyone outside can watch the same program as in the theater if they want to? Or maybe I should just note that the owner finally achieved his life-long goal of having a party area with concert quality Bose 901 speakers. Perhaps I could mention the electronic video games and pinball games that were hand-made in beautiful maple just for this house. Or the video game consoles in the 6 person bunk bedroom to keep the kids happy in case of rain? Or the WIFI which works on all balconies, the pool area, and even in the spa! Probably best to start with the stomach, the fact that the house has two full kitchens (one with the best ocean views in the world, and the other with fantastic pool views). The elevator is useful to some guests, and certainly makes carrying groceries to the upstairs kitchen a breeze. I could mention that the house has six bedrooms and sleeps 16 comfortably in beds before you even need to consider the sofa bed or Qing Dynasty bed (3 or 4 more). No, I think that I must start with the 360 degree ocean, beach, park, and intracoastal views - which in my opinion are among the best in the world. Ahh the life! Now read backwards!

This house is amazing!
We have just returned from five incredible nights. The beautiful decor, the amazing works of art and the amenities are too many to list. There was something for everyone and we had ages 5 to 84. The elevator was especially appreciated by the seniors.
The two separate kitchens were of immense importance as we had several gluten-free diners. We made the 3rd floor kitchen gluten-free and the main floor kitchen "glutenous"! The pool was a joy to everyone. The kids found every shell imaginable on the beach and loved playing in the waves. We were able to see a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral right from the balcony. We also watched the passing of the ISS on two different nights. Did I mention the sunrises and the sunsets? This place has it all. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
Absolutely fabulous. Pool was a private resort, decor was unlike any rental we’ve ever seen!
The house had room for everyone. Enough space for quiet computer work, movie nights in the movie room, breakfast for 14 upstairs overlooking the ocean. Truest and incredible experience. Very well equipped with everything. Not just one boogie board but 6! Ping pong, juke box, Pac-Man. There was something for all ages. Lots of towels, decorative pillows everywhere, kitchen was equipped with a Ninja, which we put to work every night! Thank you for all the details. It made for an awesome week for our four families. We had a small problem with the elevator and the management company had someone fix it within 24 hours. Would rate higher than 5 stars if we could.
White Surf Vacation 03/18
We had a fantastic vacation at White Surf. This was rented as a Spring Break for my family and Grandchildren. The house and pool were probably the best we have ever rented. The pool was gorgeous. We paid extra to have the pool heated since it was March and we are glad we did. It was quite windy the week we visited and having the pool heated made the experience enjoyable. My 4 year old Granddaughter wouldn’t get out of the pool. While more expensive than estimated to heat the pool, it was necessary to do so at that time of year. Also, the adults took great advantage of the hot tub. Not enough can be said about the downstairs living quarters. The Juke Box and Pack-Man machine got a big workout along with the movie theatre. Being able to show both movies and watch TV (it was March Maddness and NIT final week) was a bonus. We are sports enthusiasts and really enjoyed being able to watch as a family in a theatre environment. You don’t need to bring any beach “toys” to use since the house is equipped with so many beach amenities from beach chairs, to surf boards to kayaks to bycycles to shuffle board and table tennis in the garage. The grand living quarters on the top floor with an outside balcony overlooking the Atlantic was relaxing and enjoyable. We actually didnt get to use this upstairs much since there is just so much you can do in one week. This home did it all. And finally, having a State Park directly across the street with lakes and walking trails provided much needed walking exercise. Saw Manates and Porpuses along with fish and turtles although had to rent time on Airboat to see some alligators. As to eating out, downtown Vera Beach was ~15 minutes away with just about any cuisine available at a host of restaraunts.
everything was great view, accommodations where beyond our expectaion
The perfectly fun private beach getaway!
We had the pleasure of renting White Surf for a family reunion. We had a 4 family, 14 person, multi-generational group with ages ranging from 3 to 78. White Surf was the absolute perfect place for us! Everyone in our group fell in love with it!
The top floor has stunning views of the ocean. The grandparents stayed up here and were able to take the elevator up so as to avoid climbing three flights of stairs. They enjoyed morning coffee on the deck overlooking the ocean and we had wonderful family dinners enjoying the sunset at the large table on this beachy decorated floor.
The second floor has five bedrooms were all families could spread out comfortably. The double bunk room was amazing and a huge hit with all the kids. They especially loved the foosball table! All the bathrooms are finished with whimsical tile that make you feel that you're truly on vacation. The beds are all exceptionally comfortable.
The first floor is where we spent the majority of our time. It is over-the-top awesome! Even the teenagers were impressed! The most amazing part was the Asian theater with the 200 inch screen. We had so much fun playing the arcade sized Ms. Pac-Man machine and pinball! We loved taking turns picking songs on the jukebox. The kids were amazed to discover the garage also had ping-pong, hoop-a-shoot, corn hole and so much more! There was never a dull moment!
The first floor kitchen that opens up to the pool was used constantly. We loved making our frozen margaritas and apps. We grilled nightly. It was nice that there was another comfortable sectional to lounge on for the grandparents to take a break from the pool but still be part of the action.
The pool was gorgeous and tropical! It was perfect for the toddlers in the group with its raised shallow section. It provided constant entertainment for the older children and teenagers as well. The hot tub was a hit for all!
It was such a pleasant surprise to learn that outside of the back gate was a 30 step walk to the beach! The house is stocked with beach toys, surf boards, boogey boards, beach chairs & even a wagon to bring supplies. We basically never even had to get in the car! There is a playground also at this beach entrance perfect for toddlers.
Lastly, there's even a nature preserve across the street with manatees and a boardwalk out to the intercoastal waterway!
It was a perfect vacation in every way! We would come back in a heart beat! Thanks for the memories White Surf!
Great house for family reunion
Great house for family reunion trip to see great grandma. So much room for each family to have their space when needed. Well stocked with all the toys for a beach vacation. Location next to state park was fantastic for the beach and bay side. All spent hours in the pool. Movie theatre was a treat. Elevator was a huge plus for the elder generation in our group. Property manager very responsive with the questions during our stay and follow up.
