LOVELY, SPACIOUS, HOME W/PRIVATE HEATED POOL , NEAR OCEAN, SLEEPS 2-8,

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 new 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 two tables for dining, plus a double swing, lounge chairs for sunning, a bar with stools, 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.

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

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.

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.

THIS HOUSE WAS PERFECT MARCH 29-APRIL 6

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

GREAT GIRLS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My aunt, mother and I stayed here 2 weeks for a girls getaway. This was an absolutely amazing home for just what we were looking for. We had a great time enjoying the peace and quiet by the pool most of the time, plenty of relaxation in the hot tub provided, and some fun trying to bait a hook and catch some fish in the canal out back of the dock. This home was completely stocked with any and everything we could possibly think of for our stay. (Trust me when I say the 3 of us girls together can always manage to find something we are missing when away!) Not here though, every time we would think of something we needed we just opened our eyes and looked in the logical place and POOF there it was! I was very impressed with the amenities, cleanliness of the home, tons of space, and upgraded decor! A big plus for me was also the comfort for sleeping, the beds were great, right down to the sheets and pillow choices! It was nothing short of a spectacular trip and definitely one I will remember and already have plans to book again for my birthday next summer and I can't wait!! Thank You Bob and Merilyn this was one to remember!

PARADISE FOUND IN SEBASTIAN FLORIDA

  • 5 of 5
My family has found paradise. The house is totally updated and the owners have considered the guests' comfort in every imaginable way. The kitchen is gourmet but is also kid friendly so we felt comfortable allowing our children to help in the cooking and the clean-up without worrying about ruining anything. We LOVED the pool and hot tub and the lanai was large enough to give everyone space while still feeling like we were together as a family. There were tons of games for the pool and plenty of activities for adults and children to enjoy when the weather was rainy. The garage had a variety of bikes for all ages and we enjoyed bike rides in the flat and friendly neighborhoods of Sebastian. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were beautifully decorated but not cluttered. It was definitely a feeling of being on vacation but not missing a single comfort of home. The beach was really close, never crowded, and very clean. Suggestions for great restaurants are found in the binder the owners have along with many ideas for activities. We have found our new vacation spot and will return every summer for many years to come.

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.
