Convenient location, great communication!

Property is located within walking distance of downtown Melbourne. Nice condo, very convenient. Worked out well for a summer internship. Annette was great to work with since we are such a long distance away.

Everything you need is here. Beautifully decorated, great atmosphere. So much to do for anyone. A lot within walking distance!! The pictures are right on. Quiet even though downtown is a block away. Everyone friendly and Annette was right there if I needed her.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this condo as a great place to stay for a wonderful urban experience. It is clean, modern and very tastefully decorated. The owners were prompt in responding to any inquiries. Within a block or two are a variety of restaurants and pubs to satisfy everyone's tastes. Downtown Melbourne has lively entertainment and many outdoor festivals.

Wonderful stay from 12/24/13 through January 2014

  • 5 of 5

This condo is more lovely than the photos, and the description is completely honest! All was beautifully decorated and extremely well-maintained and clean. We loved having a second bedroom for guests and a separate dining area with table.

I am slightly mobility challenged and the stairs to the second floor were easy to manage. We loved the second story with a front and back deck. The large living room has a wall-size section of glass sliders to the back deck which provided sun all day without penetrating and super-heating the interior--a blessing for northerners who love sitting out with a good book!

The few minute walk to historic downtown Melbourne was such an easy walk that we were able to walk to shops, restaurants, and the most fun of all, the Henegar Center for live theater! In the other direction, we were able to walk to parks and boardwalks on Crane Creek, an inlet of the Intracoastal waterway.

The landlords were very welcoming and helpful, and we hope we can return next year--same time; same place, only for a longer period of time! Thank you Annette and Scott!
