Indian Harbour Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

This spacious ranch house was built by a NASA engineer in the late 60's and designed for guests and entertainment. It has been refurbished including new windows, new appliances, a new and unique bathroom and many other features. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and the local police station is located a block at the end of our street. Starbucks, groceries, restaurants, and clothing, etc. are just blocks away. The beach, just three blocks away, offers rest rooms, walkways to the beach, water spigots to wash the sand off your feet, grills, picnic tables etc. We supply beach chairs, toys, towels, and two bikes to get to beach and back. The river is just three blocks the other way, offering sailing, kayaking to small islands, and manatee/bird watching You may not even need a car as we just use electric bikes to get around. A stroller is also available for families.

This is the ideal spot for families who want to relax in a safe, quiet, comfortable neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle. Everything is close, just an hour from Disney, 30 minutes from the Cape, and 15 minutes from Brevard Zoo. Great restaurants, sunrises and sunsets, churches, shopping, and surf shops. We consider this area to be as close to paradise as it gets if you're not a partier. That said, there is also great nightlife nearby...check out Lou's Blues or Cocoa Beach (minutes up A1A. If you want to relax.....this is your spot.

Why The Owner chose Indian Harbour Beach

My mother and father in law were in the service at Patrick AFB in the 60's and enjoyed this area. I inherited this property from a friend of the engineer who built the home. We rode out the last hurricane to hit this area and stayed high and dry even though Melbourne and surrounding areas had water problems. I grew up in Naples and The Keys, this area is less commercial, quieter, more convenient, more laidback, friendlier, less buggy, and has great surf.

What makes this house unique

We really enjoy the variety of things this area has to offer - especially the beach. We can go to the causeway and watch shuttle launches from Cape Canaveral; tour the wildlife refuge at Cape Canaveral; shop downtown Melbourne or in the many malls in this area; go surf fishing etc. My morning ritual is to ride my bike to Starbucks and take my coffee to the beach and watch the sunrise. Here you will find something for most everyone. Internationals tend to ove our area because it has a more "local" feel. No big city rush or rudeness. Everything is convenient...you may find you don't need to leave the island for anything.

More than disappointed!!

  • 1 of 5
After very vague communication with the owner, we were able to book the house. I was told that they usually rented it monthly. (I don't recall seeing that in the description, plus, why would the owner quote me a price for 10 days?) We arrived at the house and the musty and stale smell was disgusting. The Master Bedroom had a Sleep Number Bed, which was deflated on one side. We pumped it up, only to wake up in the morning sleeping in a hole. The sheets were not on any of the beds. The description showed sleeping up to 12 people... there was room for 8 people. In one bathroom, you could not flush any paper into the toilets, or you would have pay a plumber to unclog it. (Talk about GROSS!!!) There were these sticky pads for roaches and bugs.... with roach carcasses on them and on the floors. Dead lizards lying around. Obviously, no-one stopped at the house to make sure it was ready for guests. The only positive thing was the washer/dryer. I was really disgusted and refused to stay there after one night. If my family wasn't in a bind, I would have left and asked for a refund. I wouldn't recommend this property. After having several wonderful experiences renting through HomeAway, next time, I will have someone in the area stop by and check it out! Stay away!!

Owner's Response: After an email asking about the sleep number bed, I responded that I had already been online to have a replacement shipped. The renter responded that her husband had found a hose loose.
She did address there were a few dead bugs, to which I apologized, and explained about traps drying out.
The linens are always left off the beds so the renters know they have been washed.
The house does sleep 9- 12 people, as our ad states. including a crib, foldout couch, and aerobed, in addition to other beds. (clearly stated).
As we had just had a new garage door opener installed...I had the remote overnighted to make sure she had it.
My inlaws had just left the home weeks before...my mother in law being a neat freak. It could not have been too bad.
As for the bathroom issue....the only problem one traveller ever had was with someone flushing "wipes" which do not belong in the toilet.
I promptly replied to her initial email, offering to reimburse for mattress patch, if needed. No further issues were addressed to me, or I could have dealt with them quickly.
I am very sorry this individual was not happy with her stay....AFTER her departure. I believe this will be the end of our road with VRBO, as anyone who has dealt with us prior has done so in a manner allowing us to amend any problems during their stay, if they arose.

Great Place for 4 Golfing Gentlemen

3 friends from the north and I stayed here to play gold with some local friends and found the house to be a great fit for us. There was ample space and accommodations for all four of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. We would certainly consider a return visit if the timing and availability work out. Thank you so much for the hospitality.

This was just the get away I wanted

  • 5 of 5
I served in the Air Force at Patrick AFB and was pleasantly suprised how pristine the area had remained after over thirty years being away. The house is centrally located to numerous spots that I wanted to visit. It is designed to provide space for a family with bedrooms at opposite ends of the house and central den, dining room and kitchen. I enjoyed getting up in the morning, going to Starbucks and taking my coffey to the beach and watching the sunrise. The accomodations on the beach are great for surfing, fishing or just walking on the beach, picking up sea shells. The beach is close enough that I can ride my bike there for a little extra exercise. The beach resturant with fish tocos was one of my favorites. I also, golf and played a number of the courses close by. It's easy to get some discounted tee times, just go on-line and most courses have daily specials. l liked the Nasa tour at Cape Kennedy and the wild life preserve there too. My family and I really enjoyed the accomodations and the stay and plan to do it again. Thanks for sharing a part of your wold with us.
