About the property

Beachfront High End 2 Bedroom Sleeps 6

Welcome to the Flying Pelican, a truly amazing BEACHFRONT town home nestled in highly desirable Melbourne Beach, Florida. Adorned with high-end furnishings and beautiful tropical and oceanic decorations, you will find yourself steps from the pristine and very private beach of this East coast gem. Stroll the beach and immerse yourself in the abundance of wildlife that populates the beach, collect shells, or just bask in the sun and swim the warm waters that await you, just steps from this beach paradise! This is one of the best beaches to observe the Loggerhead, Green and Leatherback turtle nesting seasons. During nesting season, you are almost guaranteed an amazing experience, observing these giant creatures nesting or the joy of watching hatchlings make their way to the ocean for the first time. Or take a paddle board adventure on the Indian River and see dolphins and manatee. And of course, watch the Pelicans glide right over the upper balcony.

The Flying Pelican is equipped for your total comfort, from the ever so comfortable beds for a peaceful nights sleep to the fabulous surfboard kitchen for a fun social dinner. Sit out on the deck with a cocktail as you watch the sun and waves or relax in the living area and just soak it all in while you doze off.

Everything you need is very close to this cozy beachfront oasis. Spressard Holland golf course is ¼ mile from the front door for a round of golf. Or paddle board/kayak the river or ocean for the day. Take a day to enjoy the dolphin tours, the Kennedy Space Center, or the beachfront and riverfront venues with live music and great food. Near the home are the all of basics that you will need. Diagonally across the street is a convenience store/gas station that is a lifesaver.

Come and enjoy this tranquil piece of paradise in quiet and friendly Melbourne Beach.

The Flying Pelican is a multi-level town home with the 1st floor foyer leading to the master suite and master/guest bath with large shower. A large slider opens to the ground floor patio, equipped with lounge and sitting chairs as well as beach gear. The foyer stairs lead up to the surfboard kitchen with front balcony and three steps up is the back is the beautiful, cozy open living area that has the panoramic view of the ocean and beach. The last level is the loft bedroom with privacy curtains that open to a view of the ocean. The loft bath has a shower/bath combo.

The owner is a local artist, and you will see various pieces of his art as well as his one of a kind home designs.

***Also available at additional costs are in-house chef services for lunch and/or dinner.

***See my other property in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of Georgia for an amazing escape!

About Steven

Welcome to my beach home! I hope that you enjoy the tranquil yet fun area and this home. I have been a Florida resident for some time now. The first place I bought when I moved here was about 1 mile down the road from here. I became tired of the city life in California and decided to make a life change. After about a month of torment on the Internet, I decided that Melbourne Beach and the Melbourne area was the place to be. So, I quit my job, sold my home, packed my furniture and dogs and headed for the east clue what I was in for, moving here sight unseen.

Well, obviously, I made it! For me, this was the perfect place, work in the corporate/tech environment, affordable homes, beautiful beaches, wildlife galore, boating, night life.

So here I remain, still very happy I live here, still a beach's good.

Steven purchased this townhome in 2016

Why Steven chose Melbourne Beach

The Flying Pelican is my own beach home that I know you will enjoy as much as I do. It's a very comfortable, clean beach house with a unique flair. From its vaulted tongue and groove, open beam ceiling to the surf board light over the family sized kitchen table, very comfortable beds, smart tv's, spectacular beach view and very private beach! Quick easy access to the local stores, golf and bait shop. We truly find it difficult to leave when we are staying here. This is a very special, peaceful place in this small, still very beachy community.


What makes this townhome unique

When I chose this house, I instantly saw what I could do with it to make it special and interesting. it wasn't just one thing, but many that I liked about the future Flying Pelican. The multi faceted levels and the high ceilings in the living area allowed us to give the house a great polished beach personality, and make it very welcoming and comfortable as well. I get to periodically cycle my art through the house as well, which I enjoy too.

The beachfront view and being "right there" is fantastic! To me, having the tranquility, private beach, and a great home to enjoy it from is everything I could have asked for.
