Overview

Sebastian House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

We love our recently purchased home that's been remodeled with you in mind. As you enter you'll see the large, heated pool and separate hot tub through one of three sets of French doors leading to the huge (37' X 50') lanai. The spacious comfortable living room has enlarged photos of birds you may see in the area. Included are free cable (3 TVs) and wireless Internet.

The kitchen with new granite counters features an under-mounted deep double sink, There are under-counter lights too, with a generous island and stools for watching the chef. We're equipped with everything to cook a gourmet meal or prepare easy snacks, including a 2nd full-size refrigerator in the garage. A full set of dishes, cook and bake ware are all ready for you.

The separate dining room seats eight. We have china service for 16 in the hutch. The 7.5 foot table can also be used for cards, puzzles, games or just visiting while you watch through the big front window for sand cranes or an ibis walking through the yard. You'll see why we call the home 'Seaglass Sojourn' because there is gorgeous painted furniture in soft seaglass colors in each room.

The split bedroom floor plan allows for maximum privacy. The master bedroom, with a large bathroom that has a comfort-level commode, two sinks, sunken tub and tiled shower, opens to the lanai. The queen and twin bedrooms are on the opposite side of the house, with roomy closets and lots of drawer space. The smaller 2nd bathroom has much of the same comfort as the master bath. There is a pull-out queen sized mattress in the living room couch or twin air mattresses if you prefer.

Seven overhead fans complement air conditioning for summer and we also have a real wood burning fireplace for the cozy winter evenings when you want to curl up to read a good book or watch TV. We believe every seat should have a place for a drink and a lamp. We have puzzles, games, books for children and adults too. We can sleep 8 in our 1918 sq.ft. home, so it's OK to invite your best friends along, but just two works beautifully also. In the attached garage you'll find beach equipment such as sand toys, beach chairs, coolers, and 3 adult plus 2 youth bikes with helmets. Entrance from the garage is ramped, as are all three French doors to the lanai. All doors are extra wide. An over-sized front load washer and dryer in the laundry, along with a tiled folding table, iron and ironing board make even laundry easy.

We're located on a canal, so you may see an anhinga drying its wings on our private fishing dock while you breakfast on the screened-in lanai. Hear the fish splash in the canal. Catch-and-release bass or bluegill off our private dock (No license required). Notice the palms swishing in the ever-present breeze, thanks to the nearness to the ocean, which makes both summer and winter enjoyable. Besides the heated pool (85 degrees) and hot tub (103 degrees), the lanai has three tables for dining, plus a double swing, lounge chairs for sunning, and a 4 burner gas grill. It's hard to leave the spacious lanai and our quiet neighborhood, but there's much to do in Sebastian or nearby Vero Beach or Melbourne. Uncrowded sandy beaches are just a few miles away.

The history of Sebastian with sunken Spanish treasure, though little known, is fascinating. Environmental centers up and down the coast tell you the stories of loggerhead turtles, manatees, dolphin, alligators, birds and feature hiking trails. Orlando attractions are only 90 miles away and an easy day trip. Bring your swim suits and we'll supply beach towels and all linens and bedding.

NO pets or indoor smoking allowed.

About Merilyn Hamburg

Owners are a former university professor and a retired military officer originally from Pennsylvania who now make their primary residence in Northern Virginia.

Merilyn Hamburg purchased this house in 2012

Why Merilyn Hamburg chose Sebastian

We were attracted to Indian River County due to the centralized location on Florida's east coast. The constant ocean breeze refreshes us. Sebastian in particular has an interesting history dating back to 1715. The locally owned, not national chain, restaurants provide excellent dining opportunities. We are close enough (12 miles to Vero Beach and less than 30 to Melbourne) to larger metropolitan areas to partake of all they have to offer without having to live in congestion. You may even see the plumes of rockets when they launch from the Kennedy Space Center.

What makes this house unique

We love that the house has cathedral ceilings, elevated niches, all tile or laminate floors, and the largest lanai we've seen. The rooms all are light and airy allowing plenty of sunlight. We were impressed with the canal location and the many birds visible throughout each day.

We were absolutely happy with the Sebastian home. The pool is fantastic, the bedrooms, kitchen and living room are very nice. The Sebastian area is a great place for a relaxed vacation. The beaches are terrific. We would definately come back!

Everything we hoped it would be

Thank you so much Bob and Merilyn for allowing us to rent your lovely home.

From the first enquiry about this property to leaving this property at the end of our stay everything went smoothly. We had a fantastic time and the house was exactly as shown in the pictures.

It took us approx 1hr 30mins to drive from Orlando airport. From this property we visited Kennedy Space Center (approx 1hr drive), Universal (approx 1 hr 50mins) and Wet n Wild. We also went to Miami for the day but can't remember how long that took us.

We spent quite a few days at the Sebastian State Inlet Park. It costs $8 dollars but it has restrooms, cafe etc. It also has plenty of areas to fish, a little cove swimming area with no waves and the main beach area, so everyone was happy. We also saw manatees, sea turtles and dolphins here.

Every morning in the canal at the back of the property we were greeted by turtle/terrapins(??) and a little alligator(??), we did see on our last day that there were actually two. They would come swimming over as if to say where's my breakfast, was lovely. Unfortunately it made fishing challenging for my husband as every time he cast in then would go for his bait so he had to dodge them but he did manage to catch a few fish.

Owner's Response: Denise: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Seaglass Sojourn. Thanks for the great review. We actually didn't realize there are two alligators, and in fact, didn't quite believe our grandson when he first saw one, but there it was. Now we can't wait to go back down and look some more. We enjoy the many birds who fly down the canal too.

This house was perfect March 29-April 6

This house was perfect! Very close to the beach. The beach was not crowded. We could go for 2 hours and be home for nap and pool time. The pool was warm and very clean. The house was perfect. I am afraid to say too much good stuff because it wont be available next time we want to rent!
Thanks Merilyn and Bob for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Pool lounging perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Great getaway! The large heated (ahhh) pool, hot tub and generous lanai with loungers and grill offered us a wonderful week of outdoor living. The house is lovely, too--the perfect blend of comfort, space and amenities. It feels like home as soon as you enter. Everything you need is provided. And the owners are very organized and responsive with information. Quiet neighborhood, quiet town, but close to one of the best tiki bars (Captain Hiram's) in the state and great day trips to nearby Melbourne and adjacent Vero Beach. Try it; you'll like it.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property with our adult children and grandboys last July and we had the most amazing time. It had all of the amenities that you could imagine or need. The owners have thought of everything!! Now that the new year has come around again, we are planning the next trip, and we have decided to rent here again. I do not like going back to the same location as a rule, but with this one I have NO problem. The owners are one reason that I would rent again. They are attentive to any need or issue that comes up and very efficient on responding to emails. We actually used to live in the local area and enjoy family trips back home once a year. There is so much to offer in this area and the property is located very close to everything that you want to do. I would recommend this location to anyone going to the area.

The home and the owner are first rate

I have used VRBO many times and I have had great luck every time. This transaction was the best yet! The home was better than described, and the owner was extremely accommodating!

I would highly recommend this property and I would absolutely be willing to rent from this owner if they should ever own another property.

Whether you prefer sky-diving, deep-sea fishing, shopping or antiquing, water-side restaurants,or the ocean, you'll find plenty to do in this best kept secret in Florida. Pelican Island in Sebastian was our first National Wildlife Refuge. Stop in at Sebastian Inlet State Park to kayak or picnic while you watch the dolphins frolic. Explore the Indian River Lagoon and the St. Sebastian River. Just don't tell everyone or it may become overcrowded. Did we mention we're in the USA's top five areas for clean air according to the May 3, 2012 issue of the Indian River Press Journal? If you're retired, vacationing, have relatives in the area, or just want to get away from it all, Seaglass Sojourn is the place for you.
