"We have stayed at many homes and this is easily the top of the list. The pictures do not do this house justice! Maria, if you ever sell this home let me know. I would love to retire here.
The description is accurate. The house is well appointed, the kitchen has everything you need, the furniture is very comfortable, and the location is about as good as it gets. You are 1 minute form the beach. We could hear the waves from the pool.
The pool area is great and very private. The pool is very large for a private home. The biggest we have seen. There is plenty of very comfortable seating, perfect lighting for nighttime and ceiling fans if you need a breeze.
There are 2 outdoor showers with one right next to the gate that leads to the beach. That one also has a spigot for just rinsing your feet which is extremely convenient if that is all you need to rinse off. Perfect after a relaxing stroll on the fantastic beach.
The beach is great. Private is a perfect description. Other than when people came out to watch the SpaceX launch, yes you can see them from this beach, we felt like we were on a deserted island. We could walk north for several miles and only see a handful of people. South you will hit the public beach but even that had maybe 2 dozen people and they were not your typical spring-breakers.
You are pretty close to town, maybe a 5 minute drive, and have easy access to the mainland. Vero Beach itself is great. Very quiet and has a great mix of everyday places to high end shops and restaurants. Even with it being prime time we rarely had to wait to get a table even last minute. We only missed out dining at one place and that is because we were a walk in and did not want to wait 30 minutes to sit on the patio.
We only had 2 issues with the home. The left side of the toaster was not working and there was 1 door that was not easy to close. Even so my kids did not have trouble using the door so I forgot to mention it. It was that minor.
Maria is a great host. Even while she was travelling internationally she responded immediately to my questions.
You really cannot ask for more. Excellent home, great pool area, 1 house from very private beach, close to town, easy access to the mainland, extremely responsive host, and at a very reasonable price for what you get.
Oh, and the construction site. We did not hear anything and you cannot see it from the house unless you walk out to the street.
We had a great relaxing vacation. Thanks Maria."
