Once you have stayed at Heaven on Earth, no other beach house will do! Our 3-story oceanfront Mediterranean-style home in Hammock Beach offers a heated pool and spa within a giant lanai, an elevator, luxurious living space, and breathtaking ocean views!<br/><br/>You will have a moment at Heaven on Earth when the bliss of your surroundings overwhelms you. Perhaps it will be when you're soaking up the sun on our 3rd floor deck, with a sweeping view of dunes, beach, and Atlantic Ocean before your eyes. Or when you are lolling in the Jacuzzi tub in your private suite, sunshine streaming in through the window above. Or maybe when you are floating in the pool on the lanai, gazing up at the pure blue sky. Whenever it occurs, you will know immediately that you are truly having the time of your life.<br/><br/>Our house comfortably sleeps up to 14 people, and our 3-car garage holds all your beach toys, too! Travel by elevator from the ground floor up to the heights, with penthouse views from every room and breathtaking balconies looking down upon the beautiful vegetation of the dunes, the cinnamon-colored sands of our beach, and the glittering sea.<br/><br/>Heaven on Earth brings the outdoors inside -- but without the heat or bugs! -- in our giant lanai. This amazing space includes a large heated swimming pool, adjacent heated spa, and vast deck area. It's the perfect place for a party, with windows on 3 sides as well as overhead! You'll feel as though you're up in the clouds in this exquisite space.<br/><br/>Perfect for family reunions or several families vacationing together, Heaven on Earth contains 3 master suites -- one on each floor! Each contains a king-size bed and en suite bathroom. The 2nd and 3rd floor master suites offer ocean views, too -- sliding glass doors leading out to sun-baked patios where you can inhale the zesty sea breeze and hear the low murmur of the surf!<br/><br/>In addition to the 3 master suites, there are 4 other bedrooms, one of which is a den with sleeper sofa. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed, TV, and beautiful ocean views from the adjoining patio. Another contains 2 queen-size beds. And the third is a kids' paradise, with 2 sets of bunkbeds! As a bonus, the loft is a great hang-out space for kids or teens, with comfy chairs and a cozy, secluded feel. <br/><br/>Even if you are traveling with a party of 14, you will never feel crowded at Heaven on Earth. There are simply too many separate areas, indoors and outdoors, all of them appealing. (Not to mention 5½ bathrooms, so nobody has to stand in line in the morning!) <br/><br/>With vaulted ceilings, ocean views, a fireplace, and ultra-comfortable furniture, our living room is a joy. Gather the gang together here for an evening of reminiscing. Inevitably, the party will move out onto the patio as the stars begin to come out.<br/><br/>If there are cooks among your party, they will love our gourmet kitchen, with wood cabinetry, granite countertops, a central island, and all the latest appliances. Explore the cupboards and you'll find all the cookware, gadgets, and dishes you need to prepare and serve a 5-course meal.<br/><br/>But who wants to be cooped up in the house on vacation? Perhaps our outdoor summer kitchen is more to your taste! Equipped with a sink and high-tech grill, it's the perfect place to cook the catch of the day while sipping a frosty beverage. <br/><br/>Heaven on Earth has plenty of spaces to enjoy all that good food, too. Our formal dining room features a long table with comfortably padded chairs, hardwood floors, and sunshine streaming in through huge windows. What a wonderful place to linger over coffee!<br/><br/>For quicker meals, rely on the round table in our breakfast nook. Conveniently located near the wet-bar and pool table, it doubles as a game table when it's time for that rousing round of Texas Hold 'em! <br/><br/>Best of all you have a private walkway to the beach directly from the back door of Heaven on Earth! Try to venture out onto the beach at dawn one morning for an unforgettable view of the changing sky!<br/><br/>Heaven on Earth lives up to its name!
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Had a blast. The house was as described. Found it clean and ready for us when we arrived shortly after 5:00 pm. Had some questions about how to turn on the spa and such, so made a call to maintenance and then everything worked great !!!
We really enjoyed this property. It is very well laid out for our group. My husband and I and our three children with their spouses and our five grandchildren (ages 21 to 9) were all at the house. The sunrise is beautiful. We enjoyed the beach and pool and hot tub. Large decks with room for all. Large open spaces for everyone and also alcoves for private conversations if desired. The house is aging and it is showing. Old furniture and rusted grill needs to be cleaned out of the garage. House is in need of interior paint and exterior pressure washing. I realize this is a rental property however it wouldn't take much for the property to be upgraded from bronze in my opinion. My family all lives in very nice homes and it was a little disappointing to walk in with paint patched walls. The location of this property is wonderful. Just a few minutes to groceries, drug store and restaurants.
We found the house to be exactly what was described in the pictures on line. We had 6 adults and a 5 yr old granddaughter and with 3 master bedrooms it allowed everyone to have lots of personal space. The kitchen was large and allowed 4 people to cook all at the same time. The only negative was that many of the lightbulbs were burnt out on our arrival and the lock box only had one key for the house. It was a great vacation and we are looking forward to scheduling a vacation here again next year.
just returned from a great vacation in the Palm Coast area and our family loved the area. I would like to comment on the Heaven on Earth house and hope you'll listen. That house is beautiful but desperately needs some TLC and furniture. When you pay that much rent for a week you should at the very least have adequate furniture, ie, a table, lamp and chair in the bedrooms. Lamps should be in working order as well as the fans. Also all the showers seemed to be clogged as the tub and/or shower pans filled with water. The walls are badly scarred and has a hole in the wall on the third floor. Further the couches downstairs are so worn it's very difficult for an elderly person to get up off it. We had 9 folks in our party and there wasn't enough seating for us all to be in one room. In a house advertised to sleep 16 folks this is not acceptable. Don't waste such a beautiful house with neglect.....
We rented Heaven on Earth for a family vacation/birthday celebration. There were 24 people in our group so we rented both Heaven on Earth and a condo within walking distance (more on that later). Overall, the trip was outstanding. The house is beautiful, roomy and perfectly situated in an upscale, mostly residential resort property. The views of the ocean and sky from HOE were breathtaking, especially since we had clear skies for stargazing and a full moon. The kitchen was well equipped, altho I couldn't find a can opener or an oversized pot (for boiling pasta). The heated pool never warmed up enough to swim in but that was likely due to the unseasonably chilly temps outside. It's probably time to paint the interior walls on the main floor and along the staircases to get rid of scuffs and incidental marks. Maintenance and housekeeping were satisfactorily responsive. I can't give the review 5 stars because of the anxiety and consternation I experienced prior to arrival caused by a "last-minute" change in occupancy limits on the house (from 20 to 16), which required paying for additional accommodations for the overflow. I was told it was due to a new city ordinance going into effect for 2014 and that existing, confirmed and paid-in-full reservations would not be excluded from the change. Several emails to the owner/manager Steve Milo went unanswered. Vacation Rental Pros could have managed the occupancy change better (refused to pay for or subsidize the extra accommodations but offered to cancel my reservation and refund my money). It was far too late to cancel at that point so I had to come up with more money to pay for a condo. To her credit, Janet with VPP, negotiated a reduced rate with the condo owners for me which I appreciated. On the positive side, we now had plenty of room between the house and condo, so we were able to invite a couple of extra guests. In the end, all's well that ends well.
