About Richard and Mary Larson

We are residents of Melbourne, Florida. We relocated here after living in the Northeast all of our lives, including 25 years in Maine. We have come to love this beautiful, sunny place where life is relaxed and the weather makes us happy year round!

Richard and Mary Larson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Richard and Mary Larson chose Florida Central East

We love the Historic Downtown Melbourne shops, restaurants and cafes. We hope to retire to our vacation property where we will be able to enjoy walking to all that downtown has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Greetings Rich and Mary,

Melbourne is a beautiful city. Saw a rainbow when we entered the city and knew that we would have a blessed stay. You have made your condo very nice for us "tourists". I truly like how you have arranged everything from the beach towel basket to the books to read. Met a lot of friendly people and a fantastic church family. We felt at home the first week. Looking forward to returning next year. We thank you for the opportunity to discover this jewel on the Atlantic Coast!

The condo was very clean & the location was good if you don't want to stay on the beach.

The sofa & loveseat both need to be replaced as they both are tilted to the front making them very uncomfortable to set or lay on, the condo only has (1) small TV in the living room & the 2nd bedroom doesn't have a bed in it.

It has a sofa laid out for a bed. If they would replace the sofa & loveseat, put a bed in 2nd bedroom and add a larger TV in the living room and move the small TV to the master bedroom it would be a much nicer place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have not had any other complaints about the sofa in the living room or the sleep sofa in the second bedroom, so were unaware of any issues with them. We appreciate your suggestions as to how we can improve our guests' experience. Thank you for taking the time to post your concerns in your review. To future guests, please don't hesitate to contact us during your stay with your feedback so things can be addressed in a timely manner for you.

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to stay and well provisioned. Very convenient and well within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. With the exception of a leaky faucet and a struggling air conditioner, overall stay was very nice. Well done!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our condo for your stay. We were unaware that the air conditioner was "struggling" during your visit. Fortunately, our most recent guest notified us right away that it seemed to be having difficulty cooling the condo, and we had a technician out the same day so that the issue was resolved without delay. We encourage all of our guests to utilize the contact numbers provided on a list at the condo (located on the fridge) to let us or our repairmen know of any issues so that they can be addressed immediately. Thank you for posting your review and we are sorry we didn't have the opportunity to address your concerns while you were staying.

Nice place to stay and right to old Melbourne town with all the newest small shops and eateries

  • 5 of 5

Condo was easy to get to and has a large parking lot, and a short drive over the nearby causeway to the beach. Condo has nice furnishing, a new range and microwave. Fridge was spacious and had an ice maker. Beds were plush. It had a lot of privacy. The only thing I couldn't find was a hair dryer. Would recommend it for a stay.

OLd Melbourne Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three months and plan to going again. Excellent place to stay. It is clean, has plenty of parking, close to old Melbourne shopping district. The beech is 10 minutes away. In addition there many good restaurants in the area. The library is only five blocks away.

I would recommend this condo to anyone going to Florida.

Wonderful location for the 4th of July!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo over the 4th of July in 2014. This was our second year in a row staying in this delightful condo. It is a perfect place to stay if you want to be close to everything in downtown Melbourne. We walked to the main street and watched the 4th of July parade. We had family over for dinner and then walked to the river to watch the fireworks. We loved going to the shops and restaurants that are nearby. Grimaldi's Chocolates is a must, especially to get a sample of their chocolate covered potato chips. The are several little parks within walking distance and the beach is 3 miles away over the causeway, which was a nice walk. The view from the causeway was worth the walk. Thank you! We really enjoyed our stay!
