Why Jeff Zurface chose Sebastian Highlands
After moving from Texas we first lived in Sebastian. This town is a "true gem". It reminds us of small towns we were familiar with as children. It is quaint, safe and beautiful. The folks living here are gracious and kind. "Jumpin Fish Cottage" has the most beautiful setting we have seen in Sebastian! It borders a waterway in the back with a preserve area, so you can see the serenity of Florida in its natural state! The land in the front of the home is undeveloped and belongs to the city of Sebastian. There are many beautiful birds in Florida especially in the winter. You may see some of these when you visit. The area also has osprey flying overhead frequently!
What makes this House unique
This home has a gorgeous setting. It is well equipped inside with all that you will need while staying at the home. It has a split bedroom arrangement. Then there is a heated salt water pool with at lanai that is screened in overlooking the preserve! The fish are extremely active and fun to watch! Visitors really comment on the fish action, seen right from the pool lanai!

Fabulous Vacation Spot
The house had everything and anything you could need. The location was perfect. Close to the beach, restaurants and stores. The pool was clean and heated for us. Loved sitting on the patio watching all the wild life on the water. The welcome basket of wine and treats was a pleasant surprise. We cant wait to visit again. Jeff was a great host and communicating with him was easy and fast.
Our month stay at this house was very pleasant…we enjoyed watching the jumping fish, swimming in the heated pool and the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. The owners and maintenance manager were very responsive to any needs that we had, and which were not very many because most all you need for an extended stay is provided. The house and property was very clean and well maintained and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. We would like to return in the future. We definitely recommend this house.
Property was very clean, exceptionally well stocked with kitchen utensils, personal items like soap and shampoo and other articles. The patio view was amazing of the fish and birds. The pool was so relaxing and filled many hours. It was a perfect location near shopping and just a few minutes from good restaurants and the beach. I would highly recommend this property. The owner and property mananger were great to deal with.
A Happy House
As an older friend once said to me, “This is a happy house.” And it is, with sunny setting, natural dense greenery across the creek, lovely wildlife art, comfortable furnishings and the pool. We spent an afternoon just sitting and reading by the creek watching for occasional jumping fish or heron flying by. We saw osprey and on bike rides saw sand hill cranes, gopher tortoise and ibis up the street.
We rented kayaks from Paddling Paradise in Palm Bay and had first-in-our lifetime close views of manatee as well as up close alligators .
Nomad Cafe is very good, in Melbourne. Interesting tasty food.
And we appreciated the well stocked kitchen in the house. Houses on the street are close together but it was extremely quiet. The right choice for our visit to the area.
Very homey. Comfortable beds!
Pool is nice and warm!
Would recommend and return.
This property borders a nature preserve and a tributary to the Sebastian River. You can view wildlife and fish right from the bank. Excellent Photography location.
