About George Hageman
As I was riding down the beach to Sebastian State Park many years ago this exceptional property jumped out at me and I wondered who lived there. As fate would have it I met the owner who later became my wife. When we took early retirements from our professional jobs 15 years ago, we joyfully decided to become inn keepers by sharing our little piece of paradise with others.
Why George Hageman chose Beach Woods
The house was designed and built by my wife in 1978 and was completely refurbished inside and out in 2008. She explored many beach communities in Florida prior to moving here and chose Melbourne Beach because of the county's ecological sensitivity, including conservation and building height restrictions. We truly love this place! Its isolation, beauty, and distinctive offering of the finest sand beach with no hidden coral under the water to worry about is wonderful. The fishing is great as is the surf break and swimming. Just spending time in a beach chair next to the ocean provides hours of relaxed joy for us. Although VRBO locates us at the subdivision of Beach Woods, they are mistaken. Melbourne Beach House is not located in any subdivision or community. We are a unique stand-alone property situated within a nature preserve.
What makes this Apartment unique
We remodeled the house to further reflect our relaxed, informal, peaceful lifestyle. Although we created 4 lovely apartments we directed more of our resources to the two executives, one in which we chose to live. Attention to detail with marble floors, wood burning fireplaces, granite and tile kitchens and bathrooms, custom oak and pine crown molding and baseboards, and tongue and groove oak and cedar accented walls was our focus. Most of all the walls of sliding glass doors that allowed a spectacular view of the ocean, sunrises, moon rises, lightning storms, and rainbows were very important to us. Outside we created intimate conversion areas with stone and porcelain patios, wood decks, and bench swings among lush flowers and native foliage. We acknowledge that an additional wonderful amenity about our location here is that we can ride our bicycles less than 1 mile to the supermarket or we can peddle 3 miles to the quaint seaside town of Melbourne Beach. We believe we have it all!

We were here earlier this year in June. After getting home we wanted to go back so here we are. Beautiful place. Met George, the owner, he was very hospitable. Watched the sunrise each morning. Watched sunsets a short drive away near Ryckman Park, saw dolphins here too. Took many walks on the beach. Lots of birds to watch. Words don't do this place justice. If you're looking for a place to sit back and enjoy life, make plans to visit.
Excellent place will definitely go there again
Perfect Relaxing Stay
This was the perfect getaway for us. We were able to relax on the beach from sunrise to sunset. The house was in great condition and exactly what we expected from the listing. There are restaurants, shopping and a grocery store nearby that made it easy to maximize our time at the beach.
Our only disappointment is that we couldn't stay longer.
Can't wait to go back on my next Vacation
By far, the greatest most relaxing vacation I have ever had. I love the ocean, you walk about 20 steps off the patio, then down 17 stairs and you are on the beach. We had a full moon with 12 to 15 foot waves- it was great. 5 or 6 surfers a day were great to watch. You would have to be a strong swimmer to swim here. I don't swim, I just lounge at waters edge or knee deep water.
The sound of the waves literally empties every thought from your head; combine that with the hot tub and WOW!
Beautiful inside also; but we were outside most of the time. We never saw over 20 people at one time looking up or down the beach. It is like your own private beach. I would move in if they would let me!
Melbourne Beach House
Had a great stay at Melbourne beach. The house is lovely, and the location superb! Highly recommend.
Thanks for choosing us for your vacation needs. We hope to see you again in the future!
Secluded and Peaceful
The property and house were clean, well kept and organized. It provides seclusion and privacy with access to a very low traveled beach area. The property is unique to the area in its ability to offer a relative private beach. No other properties in the area can match it. The owners are friendly and very respectful to your privacy. If you are looking for a quiet tucked away place to relax, this is it.
We invite you to spend time with us -- Relax on your patio and be enchanted watching an abundance of sea birds overhead or feeding them on the beach. Walk the beach in search of unique shells and sea glass. Swim or splash in the water of our pristine subtropical turquoise ocean. Board surf, kite surf, or paddle board the best breakwater in the area. Surf-fish for dinner from the shore. Watch sea turtles lay their eggs at night. Bicycle past villages that follow the sea for miles. Play golf or tennis, canoe, kayak, sail, or power boat just a few minutes away. Visit Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral, Disney, and the Orlando attractions a little over an hour away. We are in the perfect location to visit most of Florida within a day.
