Why Sylvia Bigit chose Melbourne Beach

Your vacation rental includes:

• Complimentary coffee and filters, coffee creamer, salt/pepper and other spices and condiments.

• Kitchen food wraps such as plastic wrap and aluminum foil.

• Shampoo, conditioner, and soap.

• Beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and beach toys for the young and the young at heart.

• Use of our high end washer and dryer

So, don't worry, be happy... Enjoy your stay in paradise. Life's too short for anything less!

Beautiful apartment steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to The Snorklin Turtle reminded us how nice a vacation rental can be. This place is immaculate and elegant. It has two wonderful master suites so it is perfect for two couples to share. The nearby beach is totally uncrowded and great for swimming, surfing and fishing. You won't be disappointed!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We are from Maine, so naturally, a little warmth and sunshine feel wonderful this time of year. But more than the ideal weather of Melbourne Beach during our recent visit, we found a home away from home at the Snorklin' Turtle! Sylvia provides the "extras", which makes a major difference when renting a condo. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are spices, washing supplies, etc. Don't worry about bringing beach supplies--those are available, too, (chairs, toys, towels), along with the use of a washer/dryer. The condo is spacious and inviting, and there are 3 outdoor seating places. Our only adjustment was the traffic noise on A1-A, but that's because we live in a quiet area at home. The noise dies down at night. There are a LOT of places to visit and enjoy in the area, along with nearby restaurants. We will definitely plan to stay again.

The Snorklin' Turtle is Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was excellent! The hosts, Sylvia and Fritz, were beyond thoughtful and accommodating. The home was beautiful, well cared for, and everything we needed was provided down to the tiniest detail. There were many special personal touches, and having the owners on the property was very helpful. They provided us with helpful information about the area and great directions. We would stay there again in a minute and highly recommend the Snorklin' Turtle to anyone! Wonderful people with high standards, rare to find.
