About the property

Sleeps 4. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

Our newly purchased slice of paradise is perfect for your short or long term getaway! Spend your days strolling the beach shelling and discovering new turtle nest tracks, or hanging at the oceanfront pool! Enjoy spectacular sunrises and full moon reflections over the water, or watching the dolphins play while listening to the ocean surf from your comfortable lanai. Stuart was recently voted One Of The 50 Most Beautiful Small Towns In America by HouseBeautiful!!

Sample lunch and tropical drinks at the oceanfront Tiki bar located within steps, and treat yourself to dinner at one of the hundreds of area restaurants! Or you can simply whip up your own tropical meals in our fully-equipped kitchen while watching the Atlantic Ocean!

We just upgraded this immaculate and comfortable condo with all new living and dining furniture, top of the line bedding, and island accessories. Plop on the comfy chair or sink into the sofa and watch your favorite shows and movies on the 55" flat screen TV, complete with Blu-ray/dvd player. We also recently added a Samsung Bluetooth Audio System! Just pair your Bluetooth and listen to all your favorite music from your smartphone or tablet! The dining/bar chairs have cushy microfiber seats. We have packed the kitchen with cookware, glassware, dishware, and even spices and condiments! The bathroom has plenty of towels, a hair dryer, and complimentary soaps, shampoos etc. The bedroom has a Martha Stewart memory foam mattress cover, plenty of extra pillows, a flat screen TV, and a DVD player.

The IRP Marriott Resort sits near the southern tip of Hutchinson Island, a 23 mile long barrier island that runs from Stuart to Fort Pierce. There are two places on the property that offer bike, boat, jet ski, paddle board, and other water sports rentals. You can even head out for some deep sea fishing aboard The Lady Stuart which is also docked at the marina! There is a free tram that can get you anywhere you want to go on the plantation! And be sure to look up the launch schedule from Cape Canaveral, daytime and night time launchings can be seen from the lanai and the beach!

Beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, high-speed wireless internet connection, hairdryer, iron & ironing board, and all utilities are included with rental. Under 1 mile to Publix, the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, The Historic House of Refuge, and the famous Elliott Museum, and only minutes away from historic downtown Stuart, fun-filled Jensen Beach and Port Salerno, golf courses galore, surf shops, art galleries, MLB Spring Training venues, and all levels of shopping. Just 45 minutes north of Palm Beach International Airport.

About Cheryl Goode

We fell in love with this beautiful area in the 80's, when we vacationed here with our young family to visit our parents (Thanks mom and dad!!). We loved the area so much, we've owned properties here since 1995. We feel our southern end of Hutchinson Island is a secret, a true gem and once you experience it, you will want to return again and again.

Cheryl Goode purchased this villa in 2014

Why Cheryl Goode chose Florida Central East

We love the Marriott Resort from the beach to the intracoastal waterway, the entire property has so much to offer. And Stuart, Jensen Beach and Port Salerno offer a myriad of restaurants, boutiques, and recreational activities! Love live music? Musicians come here from all over the south, as we have the some of the best small venues with live music in the state!!

We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

While I've vacationed in Hobe Sound several times, this was the first time we have rented in the Hutchinson Island area. The location of the condo was perfect and close to everything. The best thing about this condo is it's right on the ocean. We could see and hear the waves and it was just a short walk over the dunes to the quiet and uncrowded beach. The condo was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a weeks vacation. The Publix was a 5 minute drive away and downtown Stuart was only 10 minutes away. The pool area was right on the ocean and was close to the building so it was a short walk. We did dine at the resort restaurant the night we got in and the food was good. We also checked out the Tiki Bar a couple times and had delicious frozen drinks! Cheryl, one of the owners, was easy to work with and responded promptly to all of my questions. She even left a nice welcome basket upon our arrival. We truly had a wonderful time staying here and are looking forward to booking our next vacation at this resort.

My only complaint, which has nothing to do with the condo or the owners, is that someone in a neighboring condo was a frequent smoker and the cigarette smoke was quite bothersome when we had the slider open or were on the balcony. I'm kind of surprised it's allowed, actually.

All in all it was a great vacation!! We highly recommend this condo and the IRP Resort. We can't wait to go back!!

Someone's about to get lucky!

  • 5 of 5

We rebooked this delightful vacation condo last spring because we had an awesome time there. Everything is right there: immaculate accommodation, heated pool, pristine beach steps away, anything you want or need... We really hate to give up our two weeks at the end of March 2017 because of health reasons. Since we just cancelled, someone else can live the dream, ENJOY!

We have rented a number of VRBO units and this is the first that had absolutely everything we could have possibly needed during our stay – nothing was forgotten!

Immaculate, clean and exquisitely and tastefully decorated down to the last detail, complete with a welcome note and a basket of treats!

Cheryl is a pleasure to do business with - very professional, yet personable at the same time.

We would not hesitate to book this condo again should we be so fortunate to return to this area!

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from 8 days in this beautiful condo. This is the cleanest, most well appointed, well stocked and beautifully decorated condo I have ever stayed in. Everything we could possibly need was in the condo waiting for us. Cheryl was so helpful and welcoming to us and even left us a welcome basket with delicious snacks upon our arrival. I highly recommend this condo for a great vacation.

Five stars in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl & Allan have created a beautiful oasis in paradise. Furnishings are new, colorful and beachy-chic ... anything you need is stocked here! My husband loved the large screen TV, wireless and sound system. Without a doubt, we'll be back. Forget the glitzy condos on Ft. Lauderdale & Miami Beach - and head for the Goodes' slice of heaven on serene Hutchinson Island.

Be sure to check out the Florida Oceanographic Center with their hands on stingray feeding and petting and amazing crystal clear lagoon filled with every local fish. The Elliott Museum is another must see with their extensive collection of Model T's and early transportation means, as well as an extensive Baseball collection.
