About Michelle Elferdink

We are true Floridians, born and raised. I am now an airline pilot living in Dubai. Having traveled the world, lived all over the United States and internationally, we call Hernando Beach HOME! We love it there!

Michelle Elferdink purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Elferdink chose Florida Central West

My family has owned a house in the community since 1979 and we loved spending weekends there! When this property became available, we jumped on the opportunity and have spent the last 4 years refurbishing the home.

What makes this house unique

I believe this to be the best positioned property in the community with the easterly sunrise over Dolphins Bay and the westerly sunset over the Gulf of Mexico! With fishing and swimming just out the door.

Less than 2 miles to some of the best restaurants in Florida, along with pubs and dockside tiki bars. 10 minute drive to Publix grocery, a super Walmart, movie theater, bowling alley, etc, etc, etc.

Perfectly appointed with gorgeous water views throughout the house!

  • 5 of 5

Such a happy place! Gorgeous sunset views from living area, kitchen, master bath and additional bedroom. The owners are accommodating and responsive. Electrical outlets galore for phones and gadgets. There is a large kitchen/dining table for meals and games. Smart TV with surround sound was a hit for movie-watching and the combination gas/charcoal grill made for delicious dinners. Bedrooms are all on the second floor so if you have trouble with stairs that could be an issue; however there is a bathroom with shower on the main floor. I hope to stay again. Heidi

This is a great place right on the Gulf with fantastic sunsets and views. The home has all you need to feel at home with a new grill, kayaks, bicycles and a hot tup. We have stayed here twice and just loved it. Great neighborhood as well with plenty of golf courses and good restaurants and shopping nearby. Thank you Michelle and Brian for providing such a nice an comfortable home for us.

We stayed at Ocean Blue in early fall and had a great time. After a hectic summer, it was great to relax on the upper balcony and enjoy the breeze while looking out over the gulf, watching the dolphins and boats go by. My kids love going down to the sea wall and exploring the rocks at low tide. We've been here before and its a great place to get away from it all. The pace of life is definitely slower here.

The neighborhood is great, few rentals, but mostly locals and part-timers. Everyone was very friendly! Shopping for food and essentials is nearby, but not too close. Its about a 15 minute drive to the grocery and restaurants.

The home is nicely laid out, with plenty of space to spread out. The laundry and second refrigerator upstairs is a nice convenience. The kitchen downstairs is easy enough to cook in and stocked with plenty of utensils, spices, condiments, etc. We didn't have to buy much, besides food, to put a good meal together.

I'd highly recommend Ocean Blue for anyone that wants to escape to a low pressure, very laid back place where you can just sit in the shade and relax with a drink.

Amazing views and lovely home'

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over thanksgiving. The weather is beautiful this time of year! The master bedroom is a dream the large sliding doors and the warm gulf breezes!master bed was very comfy and large too! The two other bedrooms were spacious and comfortable too. My daughters stayed in both rooms. When you are twenty one though, it's hard to stay in a bunk Love everything about this house and hope to come back again someday!
