Beautiful beach view

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are good but they do not do it justice. The house was beautiful and the view of the beach was absolutely breath taking.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

From arrival until departure we were in awe! We were a family with 4 adults and 2 small children.

The house is well suited for families with 3 bedrooms upstairs (2 of which have their own bathrooms for the adults) and an additional bathroom with a bathtub for the kids. There is an additional 4th bedroom on the main level that we did not use. We spent most of our weeklong vacation on the beach. We were in awe that each day, we saw no more than a handful of other people for miles in each direction. The sand is beautiful, and easy to walk on. We knew before arriving that we were going to purchase a pop-up canopy for the kids to have some shade. It worked perfectly. The highlight of the vacation was a close encounter with a massive sea turtle early one morning, as they come in every night to lay eggs on this stretch of beach. In the morning there are tracks everywhere. We spent a morning at the Sea Turtle sanctuary very close to the house.

Tim the owner was actually staying next door during our stay. We saw him on the beach every so often, and he made sure our stay was wonderful. Every amenity is within just a few miles, groceries, gas, restaurants, a beautiful park for the kids within walking distance. We are already talking about a visit next year if we can coordinate a schedule with our families.

Clean, well maintained, presents on paper as well as in person

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 11 family members from 6 to 68 yrs. All had a great time, amazingly quiet and uncrowded week there, It was beautiful even in the rain. We had spectacular sunrises, beautiful evenings, and were there at turtle nesting time.

Tim even dropped in a few times to make sure we had everything we needed.

We would unhesitatingly recommend this house and this gentleman for anyone who wants to be on the beach to enjoy the beauty of the area.

The house itself was well appointed, suitable for that many people, had areas to go if you wanted to be by yourself. It was a treat staying there

the only flaw was the "no-seeums" that you will probably find anywhere near the beach. Bring insect repellent for your comfort.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us. We are glad that your family had a good time at Ocean View Manor (despite the noseeums). Although we do provide skin so soft for insect repellent, it's always wise for guests bring more if they have a large group. We appreciate your favorable review and look forward to hosting you and your family in the future.

Beautiful home worked well for our 8 family members

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Had a relaxing, wonderful vacation on a stretch of beach that was pretty much all ours for 4 days! This is a stretch of beach where the sea turtles nest but unfortunately, the days we were there, there was not a visible moon to light up the beach so we didn't get to see any, although there were tons of tracks each morning. There were some great casual seafood restaurants nearby, which we used every night but one. This is more of a residential area so not a touristy location, which we really enjoyed.Tim was wonderful, meeting us upon our arrival and making us feel very at home and welcome. The house has 4 bedrooms and a sunroom so we had enough sleeping for 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The view of the beach every day was amazing, you couldn't ask for a better location/access to the beach. Loved our stay and would highly recommend this rental! One of the highlights of our trip was spending one morning at Sebastian Inlet Surf Shop taking surfing lessons!

sand, turtles and sunrises...

  • 5 of 5

If you want a roomy place right on the beach where you can watch the sunrise from the deck or balcony and see lots and lots of sea turtles (June-August mainly) then this is your spot! Roomy 4 bedroom place that actually has potential for a 5th (footon that converts with temp wall if desired). Plenty of bathrooms and kitchen space. Tim was a great host and it couldn't have gone better.

Sea turtle are abundant, coming right up after sunset. You can see them throughout the day in the water.

Sand I soft and sweet, not rocky or shells to hobble over. Great place!
