About Julia

Paradise Found is a 'happy' accident! I (Julia) grew up in the Sebastian/Vero area and loved being a child on the beaches here. My parents have always lived in Florida, but my life has taken me in several different directions. Joe and I were fortunate to find this special place and we are now so pleased to share it with our guests It truly is 'Old Florida' and a slice of Paradise.

Julia purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Julia chose Melbourne Beach

There is nothing more special than having a wonder of nature at your door step. The Atlantic Ocean is a mighty and powerful thing full of interest and wonder. The beauty of the area abounds. Each season brings it's own special circumstances: Fishing, shelling, birds and the magnificent turtles that have nested here for centuries. Looking over the ocean and viewing the manatee, dolphins, fish and the occasional whale are truly spectacular. Of course just relaxing and pondering over the energy the ocean creates isn't bad either. The life force of the ocean is ever evolving and to have the chance to be apart no matter how short is priceless.

What makes this cottage unique

The unique benefit of this property is a virtually private beach. This truly is 'Old Florida'. There are no high rises, commercial traffic or other distractions. This is a very private part of the beach with private access. Yet! You are close to the things you want. Shopping and necessities are a short drive or bicycle ride. Historic sites are close by: Sebastian Inlet, The Cape and even the Orlando theme parks are within an easy commute. It's the best of both worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time this week. We did sweep, but we watched the sunrise and tracked in some sand. Our last evening here we sat out back and looked at the stars. Roger's phone has an app that tells us what they all are, so that was fun. Jupiter was our find of the night. It is difficult to leave today but, sadly we must. Thank you for everything.

With gratitude- Roger and Rosemary

A Cozy Get away

  • 5 of 5

We were just looking for a place to watch the sun rise over the ocean, sleep in and rest from our hectic life style. This was the perfect place for us and our two small dogs. Clean and beautifully decorated, everything you would want was there, very comfortable. We loved having the beach with so few people, curl up with your coffee and a book enjoying the sounds of the ocean. We loved the little paradise reminders through out the home, and the owner was like an old friend. We give Paradise Found five stars, we look forward to coming back.

This is the first vacation that I booked online and must say that it was everything in more than we anticipated.

Julia is a wonderful decorator and the property left me speechless in it's amazing beauty.

We found many things at this at Paradise Found - peace, love and serenity to name a few.

The outside shower works wonders on your state of ultimate relaxation and connection to Mother earth.

We will definitely be back to this truly amazing little piece of Heaven on Earth.

Thank you Julia for making your home our home while at Paradise Found.

Until next time...Best Regards. Wendy

Paradise found is Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

GREAT house and location! Paradise Found is an old fashioned Florida "block" house loaded with old Florida CHARM. Paradise Found reminded me of my childhood, as I was born in Brevard County in the late 1950's and lived in a "block house" through out my childhood. I have lived out of state for many years and my recent stay at Paradise found was a delight. The cottage interior has been modernized for convenience without sacrificing its charm. The cottage is tastefully decorated with a "Southern Living" style beach theme. The grassy backyard has some shade and a picnic table for meals if you wish. The beach access is directly down the stairs at the back of the yard and there is a hose to wash off your feet when you return. We used it for ourselves and our dog to get the sand off us all before we went back into the house. I used the kitchen extensively as I am a picky eater and like to cook my own meals. While the kitchen is small it had everything I needed. The only downside would be no dishwasher, but with just two of us it was not an issue. The best thing we liked about Paradise found was it's privacy. There are houses on either side but the vegetation along the sides of the property concealed the view. We never saw or heard the neighbors. As this area is almost exclusively single family residences the beach is not crowded and we often saw many shore birds including a great grey heron who liked to fish the area every morning and evening. Sebastian inlet state park is a few miles down the road and defiantly worth a daytrip. There is a great ped/bike trail that runs alongside a1a which I rode my bike on daily. If you have the time try kayaking on the Indian river early one morning. There are rentals in the area I used my own so I can not recommend any of them from experience. I saw manatee and many birds and it was so quiet and peaceful at that time of day. A day trip to Cocoa Village is worth the trip. Also drive scenic South Tropical Trail which begins at the south end of Merritt Island. We stayed two weeks at Paradise found and enjoyed long walks and shelling on the beach with our dog every day. We plan to book Paradise Found again on our next visit to the area. We recommend you do too!

Paradise Found Review

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I fell in love with Paradise Found on our first stay. I think we were one of the first renters and we visit 2-3 times a year. Over time the cottage has become better and better. We love to sit in the private backyard and see and listen to the ocean. This part of the beach is so private, no high rises, so the beach has very few people. I can't say enough about Julia's hospitality, she has thought of every detail to make your visit a wonderful experience.

"SPOILED" You don't want to go home, we didn't.

  • 5 of 5

"Paradise Found" is the only way that explains the property and the experience there. You will arrive at this pink cottage nestled in it's surroundings of palm trees and natural vegetations with the ocean just a short stroll from the backyard to the sandy beaches.You'll soak in the sights and sounds of sun rises, birds,and the crashing waves and the smell of the ocean breeze.You'll get a view of endless opportunities in front of you when you see others enjoying surf fishing,paddle boarding,kayaking,and people with their dogs roaming the beach.Either way you'll enjoy the setting. Now about the owner and her "welcoming" self and cottage.You may be greeted with some sort of a welcome basket and hopes for a comfortable stay.She has supplied a lot of amenities as posted on the site for your convenience.She is also obliging to want to make your stay enjoyable. The inside is very clean and decorated to give it a homey atmosphere.The location is great, you're no more than 15 to 20 min. from stores and restaurants so just sit back and enjoy. We will be back. Craig, Ann and Travis.

Serenity Found.......

  • 5 of 5

Take a few minutes and imagine serenity, peacefulness, quiet, simplicity, charming, balmy breezes, misty mornings, sea foam shores, sandpipers have arrived at "Paradise Found". The "Old" Florida style, pink, beach cottage is all of the above and so much more. It provided us with the tools needed for rest and relaxation from life/work issues. Our spirit and souls were refreshed for the life journey ahead. The owner has created a cottage filled with many charming, beautiful accents and places to sit and reflect or read. We were not in need of anything just a quick trip for food supplies to prepare our meals. The best attribute was the enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. What an amazing experience! We never did use the indoor shower. May all who visit create many special memories, as we did. Thank you so very much!

The Beach Cottage is conveniently located on Hwy A1A between Sebastian Inlet and the center of Old Melbourne Beach. Absolutely pristine virtually private beaches where you can spend the days fishing, swimming, and relaxing. The cottage is located directly on the ocean so enjoying your morning coffee and watching the sunrise is a highlight. If your interest include shopping and museums Melbourne has quite a few to offer and Sebastian Inlet has a treasure and fishing museum. There are many wild life refuges and sanctuaries to enjoy on bike, kayak or walking. Vero Beach is a short ride down the coastal highway where you can enjoy shopping, fine dining, and several spas. If the large resort parks are your interest Disney and Orlando are a short ride across the beach line. In 90 minutes you can be in the heart of Orlando. The Cape and SPACE are located about 45 minutes north. For the fisher person the area provides world class surf fishing and there are several charter services available for river and ocean fishing. This truly is a slice of Paradise!
