Super Cute & Comfy Cottage Sleeps 4, Only Steps To South Beach Park And Beach!

STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach -

- Vero Beach's most excellent and comfortable cottage home -
- newly designer renovated - modern & bright & clean -
- in front of South Beach oceanfront park entrance -
- lifeguard at beach -

- Vero Beach's finest & funnest -
- 2 bedroom vacation cottage -

- great food and drink w/in close walking distance -

What do we love about vacationing at the STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach? Let me count the ways!

-+- the beach - South Beach Oceanfront Park -+-

We and our children (and sometimes even our kids' best friends) love hanging out at one of Vero Beach's most excellent surfing, boogie boarding and swimming beaches,

On the South Beach oceanfront park beach, directly adjacent to the Cottages at South Beach (only one low- traffic road to cross) - the STARFISH COTTAGE is the 2nd closest home to the park!

And we particularly like the security and safety of having a lifeguard present (200 level steps to the lifeguard station from the Cottages at South Beach);

New kitchen, new washer & new dryer! -+-

We appreciate knowing that our dinner is going to cook at the right temperature, our clothes are going to come out of the washer and dryer in the same or better condition than they entered, and our morning coffee is going to be fresh and wonderful!

-+- the fun indoor games & sports -+-

We appreciate having super fun indoor games and sports available to keep everyone happy in the evenings, on rainy days, on day-after Disney or Universal recuperation days, and on day-after sunburn days, including all kinds of fun / challenging board and card games which are located throughout the Cottages at South Beach.

Comcast cable TV opens the door to endless entertainment options,

And of course super fast internet throughout the STARFISH COTTAGE brings the entertainment possibilities of the entire world to the Cottages at South Beach 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year;

-+- excellent base for Florida excursions -+-

We like to use the STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach vacation home as a base for further exploration in eastern / central Florida, with cruise departures, key resorts and cities being an easy day trip away from Vero Beach, including: Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, Universal Studios, Cape Canaveral, everglades alligator excursions, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Miami;


-+- the public parks -+-

We love exploring Vero Beach's excellent public parks, including the kids playground and life-guarded beach at adjacent South Beach Oceanfront Park (only one low traffic road to cross).

++++++++++++++++++++
++++++++++++++++++++


The STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach is a newly updated / custom designed and custom furnished cottage home offering unsurpassed amenities and possibilities in its price range, unique to the Vero Beach, Florida area.

The STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach sleeps 4 family members or guests comfortably in 2 bedrooms (two twins in the guest bedroom, and a queen bed sleeps two in the master bedroom).

The home is designed and completely upgraded to be comfortable and fun for family members of all ages, while at the same time private and relaxing for the adults.

The excellent location of the STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach (adjacent to South Beach Oceanfront Park) offers easy access to the Atlantic ocean.

The STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach is located only steps from a life-guarded beach, through adjacent South Beach oceanfront park, the home sits in the heart of Vero Beach's acclaimed South Beach area among historic buildings and estates, as well as being walking distance close to great restaurants and bars.

Because the STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach's American owner is one of china's largest antiques collectors / dealers, the Starfish Cottage renovation team, led by leading international residential interior designer Liza G., were able to source, select and incorporate a number of exceptional antique Chinese architectural elements, as well as both exquisite and provincial antique Chinese furniture, into the STARFISH COTTAGE's incredibly comfortable custom designed interior design refurbishment. Don't worry, the house is entirely kid friendly!

Outdoor lovers will enjoy sunbathing or a nip in the ocean at the life-guarded beach, or even the experience of kayaking and surfing at adjacent recreational park areas with public beach access.

The soothing waters and white sandy beaches of the Atlantic ocean and Vero Beach's treasure coast await you at the STARFISH COTTAGE at South Beach!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: The inspiration for THE STARFISH COTTAGE AT SOUTH BEACH comes from its designer in chief, Liza G, a world renown interior designer who splits her time between luxury home projects in Florida and China. She kept the Starfish Cottage design team on their toes as she ensured that we chose, positioned, used and re-purposed Chinese antiques in conjunction with modern western furniture and furnishings in the most practical and beautiful settings. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Liza's design direction resulted in the Starfish Cottage's emphasis on both beauty and usefulness, whereby important and collectible antiques sit side by side with simple but unique countryside items as well as modern appliances, furniture and furnishings. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ The owner's family also owns and operates the largest antiques dealer in Shanghai, China - Green Antiques. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ The owner of White Surf is an American lawyer, real estate developer and businessman living in Shanghai China, who regularly spends time with his family in beautiful Vero Beach.

Why Vero Beach, FL, USA:
STARFISH COTTAGE was renovated in 2014 as one of the owner's extended family 'keeper' Vero Beach vacation homes. Vero Beach is where the folks retired long ago, and where part of the family has relocated. The other siblings and relatives travel to Vero Beach regularly. We love it here!
