As a recent guest said upon arrival " a wave of happiness has just come over me". Daisy Mae Beach home has endless sandy beaches, the sounds and smells of the waves and salt, and as you arrive at the home. Happiness will abound as you see the ocean just past the dune line!

WE ARE NOT STEPS FROM THE BEACH WE ARE ON THE BEACH! "As they put it in Florida were on the sand!"

Daisy Mae Beach Home has just completed a 12 month remodel and the home is now beautifully updated! There are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and sleeps 6. Newly furnished, the master bedroom has a white coastal set of pottery barn bead board furniture with a king bed , 40 inch TV, dresser and 2 night stands. The master bath has dual vanities, granite tops and a full size tub/shower combination.The other 2 bedrooms have a queen bed and two twin beds. There is a shared full bath for these 2 rooms.

This is a direct oceanfront home in private setting. Wonderful view from living, dining and kitchen as well as rear porch overlooking the ocean. Active turtle nesting area, in the season of March-October. The turtles frequently nest on the beach right behind the home. Some of these turtles are really big, and appear as large helmets as they exit and enter the sea! Also there are turtle nesting tours (walks) at night at the Sebastian Inlet Park as well as the Archie Carr National Wildlife refuge, both parks close to the home., within a mile or two. Daisy Mae is located on a quiet stretch of beach with golden sand, thus its name "Ambersand Beach"!

Daisy Mae is close to the Sebastian Inlet and state parks as well as the Vero Beach Disney Resort. Sebastian Inlet is known to be one of the best surfing areas in Florida and they frequently have competitions there, and lessons are also offered. The inlet is also known for its excellent fishing! You can see the Sebastian Inlet Jetty from the beach at this home if you look North on a sunny day.

Beach activities are on a non crowded, quiet oceanfront just next to the backyard of this home. Close to grocery and restaurants. Home remodeled extensively completed in 2018, new kitchen with shaker cabinets, and glass back splash with granite and island, slate appliances, all new bathrooms, new interior shaker doors, and a beautiful real wood floor made in the USA!

This home has a quaint cottage atmosphere, with tropical colors and furnishings inside. The living room has a 55 inch TV which is mounted to the wall and easily positioned for viewing. The dining table will seat 6 and there is additional seating at the bar. The furniture in the living and dining area is from pottery barn and made of real wood, which compliments the home! There is a new high efficiency washer and dryer. Cable TV and WiFi as well as land line phone with free US phone calls.

The back porch looks directly over the Atlantic and is a wonderful place to sit and relax while listening to the waves roll in. There is a picnic table for eating outside while enjoying the beautiful back yard leading to the beach.

This area has world class fishing. You can fish from shore, or hire one of our local captains, to take you on an exciting expedition. This home is located near the Sebastian Inlet to the Atlantic for easy access to the ocean. There are 3 parks/ nature preserves located within a very close proximity. For the kids, we are just 4.5 miles from the Disney Resort in Vero Beach, Florida.

Vero Beach was voted one of Florida's Top beaches by USA Today calling it the 'true gem of the Florida Treasure Coast'. The area has an absence of high rises and has an abundance of parks and wildlife refuges. Often while visiting the beach you may find your self alone, with wildlife including birds, dolphins, and sea turtles. And if you like to fish there is great action right there on the seashore! There are 3 beach cruisers for bicycling. The Central Beach area has a farmers market on Saturdays from 8 til 12 that offers a variety of fresh vegetables, precooked foods a assortment of other local goods and seafood. Many guests that have visited this home have combined it with a vacation that included Disney World as well as a stay at the beach.

This area of Florida is known as the Treasure Coast. In 1715 a fleet of Spanish Galleons was headed from Cuba to Spain and they were filled with treasures including gold and silver. They encountered a hurricane and sunk with all their treasures on board. To this day gold and silver coins are found along this stretch of beach! The McLarty museum is one mile from this home and has excellent artifacts that have been preserved from these vessels. Treasure hunting is a great activity and is enjoyed by many.

We have taken care to stock this beach home, so that all you will really need is your suitcase and personal belongings. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have and would welcome any questions. We want you to have a great vacation and appreciate your consideration of our beach home as your destination!

We discounts for weekly(10%) and monthly (15%) bookings.

A word about weddings: We receive many requests to hold weddings at our property. In Sept 2015, the county of Indian River, passed regulations prohibiting weddings or parties at single family residences. We have, however been able to accommodate several guests by having the wedding and the reception at the Sebastian Inlet State Park, about 1 mile north. Or we can give you recommendations of other close by event facilities that can accommodate your ceremony and its guests.

Weddings and other parties are prohibited in this county at vacation rental homes. The fine can be as much as 5,000.00. This fee is assessed would be passed on to the quests.

About Jeff Zurface

We have spent most of our life in rural Texas on a ranch, retiring to Vero Beach in 2013. Prior to retirement we worked in the medical field. We enjoy sharing this wonderful cottage with guests from all over the world!

Jeff Zurface purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Jeff Zurface chose Ambersand Beach

Secluded Beach!!!!! My parents live in Vero Beach and I have visited this area for the last 20 years. I was so excited to find this wonderful beach home. Great region for wildlife, such as birds and turtle nesting. The beach is so beautiful and I just love to walk daily on it. My grandson comes to visit and has a wonderful time playing in the ocean and especially loves the boggie boards. He is now learning to surf. It is peaceful and quiet, a retirement dream for us!!!! We are so happy and lucky to have this home.

What makes this bungalow unique

This is a quaint ocean front home with a wonderful view of the Atlantic. Quiet secluded beach.

This home is located in an area of parks and preserves. Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge is a United States National Wildlife Refuge is part of the Everglades Headwaters complex, located just off the western coast of Orchid Island in the Indian River Lagoon east of Sebastian, Florida. You can easily ride your bike to this preserve from the home, which is just South of this home. The refuge consists of a 5 acres of island surrounded by water and is located off the east coast of Florida of the Indian River Lagoon. Established by an executive order of President Theodore Roosevelt on March 14, 1903, Pelican Island was the first National wildlife refuge in the United States.[2] It was created to protect egrets and other birds from extinction through plume hunting. This area is know for its wildlife and the preserve is within walking distance!

Notes:
This is one of the best regions to fish in Florida. Many of our visitors bring their boats (parking on site with permission) or charter them. We are very close to the ocean inlet (Sebastian) for entry to the ocean for fishing, or fish in the Indian River Lagoon. Vero Beach was voted one of the top beaches in Florida by USA Today, calling it the gem of the Treasure coast. This area is under developed compared to most of the Atlantic Coast and Vero Beach has not allowed the high rise construction which has been done up and down this coastline. This home is within a few miles of 3 parks/nature preserves. It is truly an unspoiled paradise.

Wonderful Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the beach house for a quiet few days of R&R in between a Caribbean cruise out of Miami and a stay at the parks in Orlando while on an extended vacation in Florida with my wife and two children (19 and 16). It fit the bill perfectly! the beach was very quiet and many times we were the only ones on the beach. The house was fantastic with all of the major things, like the location, condition, and cleanliness as well as the amenities such as the beach chairs, boogie boards, bikes, etc. but also the little things like wine, snacks, soap pods for the washer, dishwasher, coffee pods for the Keurig coffee maker, etc. provided really made the house feel like you were visiting someone's home. Highly recommended!

Fabulous Beachfront vacation with dogs!

  • 5 of 5

The owners met us upon our arrival and went over the details of the property and offered tips on restaurants/things to do etc.

The home was spotless! Gorgeous views through the french doors in the kitchen and family rooms of the yard leading to your private stairs to the ocean. The home is equipped with beach chairs, beach towels and an umbrella-sheets and towels for bathroom, as well as all you need for meal prep in the kitchen. The owners were kind enough to have tea pods for the Keurig, as well as wine, fruit and snacks for us. Also, had snacks for our 2 dalmatians. This beach area is like your own private island. We didn't see anyone on the beach with us until Saturday, but it was about only 10 people. It is about a 15 minute drive to area restaurants in Vero Beach-close enough:)

We highly recommend this home and will return sometime in the near future.

The PERFECT Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation home. And it felt like home, not your average rental. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated in restful beach decor. And most important: very comfortable. The sofas in the large living room, the beds and linens, the chaise lounges on the deck, the large dining table, all comfortable. The owners provided everything needed, beach towels, shampoo, soap, everything for the kitchen and a thoughtful welcome basket filled with breakfast and goodies. For the beach there are chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys. And we loved having the bicycles. It is a nice area to ride around. There were 6 in our family, including 2 four year olds. The house worked very well for our group with lots of space to spread out and the furnishings durable for children. The location of this house is fantastic. It is on a barrier island, ocean on one side, river on the other. Miles of perfect sand beaches, largely to yourself. We were there in May and in 2 hours of walking, I saw maybe 5 other people. And because this is a turtle nesting area, there are few lights, so it is wonderfully dark and quiet. (We saw lots of turtles swimming daily, turtle tracks and nests. Fun!) And the house is conveniently only 10 minutes to the grocery store. Everything about this rental was easy, comfortable, well thought out. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. We absolutely loved our week at Daisy Mae and are so happy we chose this property. Thank you.
