Bedrooms 4
Space 2,000 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The white orchid beach house is a unique property located on orchid island six miles north of Vero Beach and two miles south of the Sebastian Inlet. The house is right on the beach and, because of the narrow width of orchid island, we also have a dock across the street on the Indian River/Intracoastal Waterway.

See dolphins and manatees on the river side right from the bedroom balconies or watch sea turtles nest on the beach from the second floor beach side balcony. Everything you need is provided including seclusion. Bring your own boat and place it on our lift, fish right from our dock. Relax, you are home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed every moment at your house and hope to come back next year. We had a great time fishing. I think that was the best. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Great for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the house with my family of 6 adults and one one year old. Fished, swam, dove, walked the beach and gave water to a thirsty manatee right from the dock on the inland side! The house is well laid out for family meals and gatherings and very comfortably furnished. We were fortunate enough to bring a boat along for cruising and fishing, departing from the from the dock. My son considers his one year old a "free-range baby" and the upstairs area lent itself to the child's easy movement. The property has a spacious garage for storage and covered parking and plenty of porch seating. The land crabs near the dock provide comical afternoon entertainment and the area around the dock is teeming with a variety of juvenile fish. Turtle nesting season was in full swing on the beach side with about twenty nests within a hundred yards north and south on the beach. All in all a great place to spend a vacation!

January stay

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (7) stayed in the house in early January for 4 nights. Great place. Location is very nice and private. The proximity to the beach is a major plus. The house was in great shape and is accurately depicted in the photos. If you are looking for a more secluded beach getaway on the Treasure coast, I highly recommend this property. Owners are a pleasure to deal with. The only suggestion I would have is to provide a couple of bikes for tenant use. Thanks again.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the beach house. It is clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a great vacation. The only disapointment we had was we were not able to use the dvd player. The beach is very private, water is beautiful but a bit rough if you have little kids....lots of waves and a bit of an undertow. The house is in a beautiful, quiet residential area with great walking paths.

  • 5 of 5

If you're lucky enough to rent this house, you will definately be happy. It was perfect. Being from the 'south', we loved the lack of traffic (human and cars). The house was well maintained, furnished comfortably (not tacky), everything brand new and the floor plan was great, loved the adjoining bathroom for the two queen bedrooms. Our teenagers loved the downstairs room, it was like having a place of their own. PLENTY OF ROOM FOR EVERYONE. The beach got an A+, it was clean, clear and warm. Had it to ourselves everyday, except for the numerous sea turtles. Walmart wasn't too far away either! Was there just in time to see the shuttle, ran up to the cape, have relatives there, and got to see it take off. Sebastion Inlet park is close and beautiful. Go to the McClardy Museum, the ship wrecks, treasure hunting and salvage history was interesing (only $1 fee). We've always been W.Coast vacationers, think we'll be back next year to the Orchid House! If you've made you're reservations, ENJOY! The Dixons/Carpenters (7 of us)

  • 5 of 5

We were the lucky ones to be the first guests in the house after the Hurricanes. We were married in Vero Beach on 3/19/2005 and spent the week relaxing and entertaining guests that flew in from all over the Country for the Wedding. The owner's are great people. We had the best time. We rented a pontoon boat that was handy getting back and forth from Captain Hirams. The house has every amenity and everything is top quality. We highly recommend The White Orchid.
