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.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a lovely time in this beautiful home while visiting Sebastian. We loved relaxing in the pool, my favorite was the giant sit on raft. I could have floated around forever. And then cool nights in the hot tub were just heavenly. We really enjoyed how fully stocked the house was, cooking oil, spices, beach towels, coolers, etc. I even found some after sun care lotion that came in handy after a sunburn. We didn’t get to take a spin on the bikes but that is a huge plus for a family. Saw the alligator in the canal one morning and each morning we got a wake up call from a bird around 7am who flies up and down the canal, could never spot him to identify him but like clockwork he came. Look for the Sand Hill Cranes with their babies right in the neighborhood too. Loved the giant bathroom and tub, being able to walk right out to the lanai from 3 different areas of the house too. The nearby Publix is perfect for all your needs, we can be a bit fussy with organic products and they had all we needed. Along the river, Capt Hirams is great for some live music at night and the Tiki Bar is a great locals hangout, saw some fun karaoke there. Definitely recommend a boat tour in the river, we saw so many dolphins and all the great birds - white pelicans, bald eagle, osprey, all the egrets, just amazing. If we could buy a home in Florida, we would want it to look just like this one. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!

A Serene Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The home is close to shopping, restaurants, golf, the beach. The heated pool and hot tub are great. The home itself has a nice open floor plan with tasteful decorating touches and it is well provisioned throughout. Fishing in the canal out back and watching all the birds and aquatic life was an extra bonus. We had a truly comfortable and relaxing stay.

Relaxing stay in a lovely furnished house

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Merylin & Bob for that wonderful place.

We (a young couple of about 30 years) enjoyed 7 days in a perfect equipped house. Everything was very well organized, we missed absolutely nothing. Cooking in the open kitchen was great, as we don't have time at home for that. The heated pool and hot tub let us decide rather to stay "at home" than to drive to the beach. If time had permitted, we would have stayed longer.

We can fully recommend a rental of this home and can imagine to come again.

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.
