Why David Wilkey chose Melbourne Beach

Melbourne Beach is truly one of the most relaxing, interesting, beautiful and low key spots on Florida's eastern seaboard. It's a town where over 70% of the population are full time residents and contains a great mix of youthful vibe with the underpinnings of a real community determined to keep its small town atmosphere. It is so convenient to attractions, world class dining and a variety of sports, fishing and beach activities. In short, a perfect location for a perfect vacation.

My review summed up in 5 words? CAN I LIVE HERE FOREVER??

  • 5 of 5

What an enjoyable getaway! I was at this location for 8 nights, visiting my elderly father who lives a few miles north on A1A. I've been coming to Melbourne Beach since 1996 and I'm very familiar with the laid back vibe, great restaurants, and general safety. As a women traveling alone I loved this second story unit. Everything was clean, decor was on point and it was quiet and cozy. I actually *liked* the abandon properties on either side of the rental...they gave an additional feeling of privacy and weren't creepy or ugly. I'm a very light sleeper and never heard any road noise except for the occasional obnoxious motorcycle or big truck. I visited the small market across the street daily for any need or culinary whim. Loved the recently addded coffee shop that was inside the store. Was also able to cross the street and dine at my favorite restaurant (Oceans 302) four different nights, and thanks to The Wilkeys for suggesting Djons (just a short walk west) for happy hour. I haven't been there in years and my father and I enjoyed a wide variety of small plates and reasonably priced wine during the 4-7pm happy hour.

We also tried Rogue River Taproom, just a bit north on A1A and would like to say they could give Oceans 302 a bit of competition!

I'm worried I've been spoiled by staying at this fabulous location. The pictures of the unit are accurate and I do understand a recent review that complained it didn't feel "luxury." To me, it was more comfortable than "luxury." I would use the words cozy, funky, artsy.... a perfect home away from home that I will surely visit again! Thanks David and Daniel!!

Melbourne Beach

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice unit with plenty of Windows so the sun shone in! AC and all appliances worked well, and it is nicely located to restaurants, grocery, and the beach. A few minor items...sheets and mattress pad would not stay put on the bed, couch sits low, and TV took some instruction from the owner to understand how roko etc worked (we are cable people). Overall this would be our choice if we want to vacation in Melbourne again.

We were very disappointed with the outside of this property.

  • 2 of 5

The outside sitting area for this unit obviously gets no attention. Chairs are dirty and the plants around the property have a lot of dead stuff on them. The properties on both sides are not pleasant to look at. The inside was comfortable but not luxury as stated. It said linens provided but no dish linens at all. We also did not care for the roku television stations. There are some things inside that need attention. We loved being near the beach but next time would prefer to be on the beach. The owner was very nice.

Owner's Response: This guest was not happy with the overall location in Florida and said as much after meeting then the first few days into the visit. I asked them if their response had anything to do with the unit itself or if I needed to address anything that needed attention in the unit to make their stay more comfortable to which they replied that the unit was very nice, they just "didn't think there was anything to do in Melbourne". After literally sending them a list of other ideas to make their vacation enjoyable, I did not get a response back from them or a thank you for trying to be helpful and make their vacation more pleasant. Even other guests staying in another unit on the property referenced this couple's disagreeable nature -(This couple by the way, were back for their second year). I always address anything that is needed in any of the units in a timely manner, but I need to be informed by the guest while they are still there not, from an unfair, poor review from clearly unhappy natured individuals. Outdoor chairs could easily have been wiped down and extra dish towels delivered within a 1/2 upon notice if I would have been given the heads up. I doubt that that would have made the difference for this particular couple regardless. It is clear from their review, that they wanted beachfront and probably wanted to be an entirely different place in Florida. Read the other reviews on this property and my other units including VRBO 797951 and you will clearly see this is an outlier.

Owner's Response: Hello Thank you for the 5 star rating. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. I wish you would have elaborated on the WiFi and TV comment. The WiFi is high speed and is in every unit. Some guests have reported signal issues on their cell phones for voice calls within some rooms of condo with certain carriers, but not any data issues with the WiFi. 32" roku or Amazon stick TV's are in living room and bedroom. Since we have streaming TV's with Netflix, Amazon, etc., as well as local over the air stations, we do not provide cable, but all were operational to my knowledge with your stay.

Beach, river numerous bars, restaurants, library, park, gourmet market, fishing supplies, bank, liquor store, convenience store, gas station, shell market & pharmacy all within a two block WALK. Short drive to historic downtown Melbourne with unique small business, shops, restaurants and bars. Town of Indialantic is a bike ride away with large assortment of shops and restaurants. Indian Harbor Beach, Satellite Beach, Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral within a 20 mile radius. Perfect location to explore Orlando attractions for day trips.
