I have spent time traveling all over Florida's beaches on both the gulf and the Atlantic side and I can say that this has been by far the best place yet. This really is the best house in Melbourne Beach. You are within walking distance from the beach and the river at any time (the sunset is amazing at both). As for the house itself, it is very neat and meets every expectation a beach house should. It is very open and roomy, and a great place to get away and relax. The pool is fantastic and the property is just an all around ideal setup for everything a beach house should be.
As for the neighborhood, the people are very friendly. In the few months that I was there I got to know several of the neighbors and they all cared about keeping the neighborhood tidy and friendly. This is a very welcoming place to be for all types of visitors.
The private beach is fantastic- beautiful sand and the prettiest water in Florida.
The river is equally beautiful with lots of great wildlife like dolphins and manatees at an almost unreal sunset.
If you are looking for a friendly place to live comfortably in a great house and enjoy the beach life, this is the best house in Florida. I cannot say enough good things about my stay here and the great time I had. I would go back in a heartbeat. Ginger is great to work with and the price is extremely reasonable for all that you get. Friendly people. Great location. Beautiful house. Best place to spend any amount of time. You will be more than glad you did!
