Overview

Melbourne House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

Home away from home! This very clean, Non-Smoking, rental home lies in a peaceful, well landscaped, residential community called Westbrooke, in West Melbourne.

The house is very clean, recently renovated, and very well equipped, with virtually every amenity you could need for a 'home away from home'. Great shopping and dining is within minutes of the community, including a large regional shopping mall.

You can also cook your own meal on the gas grill on the back porch , at the community pool grills, or in the comfortable kitchen and dining area in this fully-equipped house. All bed linens, kitchen and bath towels, etc., are furnished. The kitchen is well stocked with virtually all modern appliances. Birds flock to the pond in the backyard in the early morning and late afternoon, making a great display while they fish for their food.

While this Non-Smoking house is not directly on the beach, we are only a 10 to 15 minute drive to the white sand of Indialantic Beach. There is also a very large Community swimming pool a quarter of a mile from the house that has showers, separate dressing/toilet rooms, ample tables, chairs, barbecue grills, and picnic tables in a covered screened environment.

There is also a park across the street from the community pool that has walking trails, volleyball courts, basketball courts, covered pavillions, and ballfields, a golf course, and a public library just walking distance from the house! The pond surrounding the house has a large fountain that lights up at night. Relax in the private jacuzzi on the screened back porch (with shades for privacy) for a delightful experience in a beautiful setting!

Our Master Bedroom has a King-size bed, one bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the third bedroom has a full-size bed. The down/feather pad on the Simmons BeautyRest matress and pillows are like sleeping on a cloud! Everything is very clean and relatively new in the home. Like new carpet and vinyl throughout the house . All bedrooms and the great room have ceiling fans with lights and numerous table lamps.

There is a TV and a DVD in the master and Twin bedrooms. The Great Room has a 50 inch Stereo TV with a DVD player , and the master bedroom has a 32 inch LED television set. The home has free on-demand Netflix and there are also Redbox Video Rental facilities 2 miles away, so you can rent anything you want. The home is equipped with high-speed internet service, VOIP telephone service (free for US and Canada calls) and there is also a computer on premesis for your use during your stay.

There are family activities as we have stocked card games, board games, etc. We also maintain numerous brochures of activities which are available throughout our area, which range from water activities, concerts, golf, air boat rides, theme parks, space center, etc. If you like to read, we also have a small library of paperback books.

You may also wish to surf our Melbourne Chamber of Commerce website. There you will find a lot of information about activities. You will also find the web address and link at the bottom of our webpage. If you would like brochures of Melbourne, be sure to ask the EDC and the Chamber to send you an information packet about the Melbourne/West Melbourne area and our surrounding area.

There are three telephones, one in the in all the master bedroom, one in the family room, and one in the kitchen; local calls are included at no extra charge. Our two car garage (one side 30 feet deep for boat storage) is equipped with an automatic door opener and there are outside security lights in front of as well as behind the house. This is truely a home away from home! Just bring your clothes and get some groceries and relax in the Florida sun!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the stay in your house; our stay was wonderful and the house was immaculate. It was great watching the migrating birds by the pond for while relaxing, comfortably on the back porch. The Jacuzzi added a nice touch.

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Melbourne was most delightful. This home is comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. While sitting in the screened-in porch, we enjoyed watching the birds frolicking in the pond. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. Shopping and restaurants were close by and the beach was only a few minutes away. We highly recommend this property.
