Why Sylvia Bigit chose Melbourne Beach

Our slice of paradise is located on a barrier island in a quiet neighborhood far from the maddening crowd. It offers a pristine private beach where most times, you, the sandpipers and, if you're lucky enough -- the sea turtle, are the only ones on the beach.

What makes this house unique

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, umbrella, coolers, and beach toys for the young and the young at heart.

• Use of our high end washer and dryer and BBQ

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!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Want somewhere to unwind and relax where you have the beach to yourself? This is the place. Situated between two causeways (nearest being 11 miles away), this place is secluded and is paradise found. The house is nicely appointed and comfortable and fully equipped with all the conveniences of home. Also included are condiments, spices and beach gear. You won't be disappointed!
