My family and I have been to this house twice. First, me with three twenty somethings and second with my 88 yr old mum. My mum and aunt and I plan to be there again this year. There were enjoyments for all. We were close enough to Disney for some to spend days there. We were really close to the beach, shopping centers, flea markets, all sorts of restaurants (my daughter and I found a fabulous Thai place a few blocks away), and grocery stores with incredible bakeries, Cocoa Beach and the space center are only a few miles away. The solar heated pool outside the family room door was the end to some special days. Flights to and from Orlando are inexpensive on the grand scale of things and this house is easy to find, even when unfamiliar with the area.
The house itself is spotless with no amenities missing. The caretakers are two minutes away in case of a problem. I loved the bikes to ride around the wonderfully flat land (cant do hills) and to start the day by bringing home the local newspaper and doughnuts!
We were relaxed and happy in this house and plan to return for more vacations, be it with children, grandchildren or 90 yr olds.
My husband and I stayed there for 3 weeks. The pool was great and we had an awesome time in this rental. Everything we needed was there, except a computer, but we knew this ahead of time and brought our own. The connection speed great! The TV's and entertainment system were awesome as well. We loved the game room and pool table. The backyard was huge and patio area was great for a bar-b-que. The best part of the backyard was the privacy fence surrounding the pool area...complete privacy. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept.
I love Florida beaches! They are nothing like beaches in the north, packed body to body and towel to towel. The beaches even on a "busy" day had plenty of space and were not very crowded. I recommend the Boardwalk at Indiatlantic.
We went to Disney and Aquatica (Sea World's water park) while we were there. The drive was quicker than expected (about 45 minutes) we left in the morning and spent all day in the parks. There was so much to do in and around the house we almost hated to leave it to do something else.
We have stayed in many vacation homes and hotels in and around this area and others and this is our favorite Melbourne area location by far. We were able to stay for 3 weeks in this house for the same price as a week in a local hotel. The price is well below what is expected with all the amenties. I highly recommend this rental even if you don't have "a gang of 6" which it could easily accomodate.
My family and I had a wonderful vacation at the Palm Bay house. The house was comfortable and the pool was wonderful. The location was close to the beach and other Florida attractions. The house manager, Rich was very helpful and always available for directions or suggestions on which golf course was the best. I recommend this house for families.

My family stayed at Jan's house to attend my daughter's June wedding. As my sister, brother-in-law, niece, and my mother were all attending as well, we decided hotel rooms and restaurant dining would cost way too much. So we found this home on HomeAway, contacted the wonderful owner, and reserved it for the week we were to be in Florida.
I must say we all enjoyed it immensely!! My son and his family live minutes from the house so my three year old granddaughter was able to spend lots of time in the pool. The location was perfect for us, with our assorted family members just minutes away.
We were met by Jan's property manager, who was very helpful and extremely friendly. He showed us the house and how to operate everything in it and was close by if needed.
The house is wonderful. Lovely decor, very spacious, bright, and open. Very cool bathrooms! We were all very comfortable with plenty of room which kept everyone from being on top of each other.
Orlando is only about an hour's drive away, which made my husband and kids quite happy as they spent a day at Universal's Islands of Adventure and made it back to the house at a very decent hour after a full day at the park.
Although the Palm Bay area is much more populated and crowded than it was when we left the area seven years ago, this neighborhood is quiet with little traffic in this location. There are MANY restaurants, stores, etc. in the immediate vicinity.
We have rented many vacation homes and this one was one of the best. This will certainly be on the top of our list for future visits with our Florida family!! The owner is an absolute joy to deal with. We highly recommend this property!
