About John Stanford

Dr. John and I have been world travellers and have enjoyed vacations in many places. We split time between the beach, our pecan farm in north Florida and our VRBO cabin in West Yellowstone. We chose our home in Satellite Beach because of its safe and quiet setting, its convenience, and its great beaches and surfing.

John Stanford purchased this house in 1973

Why John Stanford chose Satellite Beach

This property offers a true family beach experience. The convenience is unsurpassed. Compared to other beach areas in Florida, Satellite Beach has a family--not a touristy--atmosphere. It is Safe. You do not even need a car. It boasts the best surf, fishing, and boating anywhere in Florida.

What makes this house unique

We love the central location to beaches, theme parks, and outdoor activities. We also love the tropical trees and gardens that grace the Pinapple Plantation. The largest banyon tree on the beach protects the home from the afternoon heat.

Forget about high rise condos! Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
We had never rented a place like this online before and I was rather nervous taking this step. We had a wonderful stay at the Pineapple Plantation! I would highly recommend it for families. We stayed with our two daughters and 2 grandchildren for a family reunion. I informed the owners ahead of time that my grandson has severe allergy issues and I was nervous about it being clean enough in case there had been a dog or cat in the home recently. The owners understood my nervousness and promised that the home would be acceptable. And it was more than acceptable! Very very clean!

The place has plenty of linens and towels, pots and pans, towels, plates, dishes, glasses, did I mention towels? If your a beacher, you understand the need for towels for everyone. There is a fantastic washer/dryer set in the garage. The air conditioning was fantastic in July in Florida! It is in a secluded little spot and you feel very secure. The decor is very homey with a touch of owner personality, unlike the standard condos where every space is the same. We did not walk to the beach, we drove 5 minutes to the beach with lifeguards and showers, but that beach is very close. Shopping for whatever you want is very close. Great restaurants nearby. The yard is fun! Yes we picked a pineapple. Just because we could even tho it wasn't ripe yet! The Banyan tree………takes your breath away, beautiful backdrop for photos!
We had 2 issues while we were there and both were fixed immediately. The 2nd day we found out the coffee pot wasn't working, a new one was delivered within 4 hours. We discovered a leak in the master bathroom sink the day before we were scheduled to leave. I called the owners as we were heading for the beach and by the time we were back from the beach, the faucet had been replaced and all was good. And the owners were out of state at the time. That's impressive! They care!

The only suggestion that I could give to the owners would be to simplify the entertainment remotes. Thankfully my 20ish 30ish year old girls were with us and they can figure those things out much quicker than I can!
The owners have a place in Yellowstone also…..that encourages me to go back to Yellowstone. But we will absolutely check the possibility of staying at the Pineapple Plantation again next visit to Florida!

Almost Home

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week at Pineapple Plantation. Everything was just as listed, and better. Very clean and the gardens were very cool. My family was impressed by the large tree in the front yard. We took many family photo's there. The location was just about perfect, just the right distance from the beach and everything you might need is within walking distance. At the same time it is on a quiet cul-de-sac, giving an away from everything feel to the location. We have rented many "beach" houses over the years. But never one that felt as much like home as this one did. We hope to stay here many more times.

Private,quiet and fun!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Pineapple Plantation. The place is pretty big, lots of linens, bathrooms and beds. The kitchen was very nicely appointed, and the wine was appreciated! The house is very nicely decorated, although we did some redecorating on our own due to two little toddlers in tow. The place is good for kids, and we loved the yards. There's plenty of room for play and the road is very quiet, so we went for a lot of walks with the little ones. The beach is about 1 mile down the street, and it was never crowded! Tons of free public parking, too, so we just drove everyday. It was too far to walk with little kids.

The beds were good, a bit soft for our liking. The master suite is sweet! It's huge and the deck is great. The gardens were a constant sight for our kids, with the butterflies, lizards, bees and occasional spider. The wifi was nice to have, although it was intermittent. We would have used the decks more often if they were screened, but there is lots of natural shade through out the day. That banyan tree is just gorgeous. This place is close to food shopping and a Walmart is next to the beach. There are a few restaurants/ bars within walking distance.

A few comments if you have small kids - the place has stairs and carpet/ tile/wood floors. Our kids wore themselves out running around the quiet street out front and the yards. We even got a 5' inflatable pool for them in the backyard. The stairs can be isolated top and bottom with a baby gate, and the bedrooms can accommodates a crib or pack n play. It's a little tight in the one front bedroom, but the other two bedrooms (especially the master suite) have plenty of room. If you need baby or toddler stuff, be sure to check out spacecoastbabybutler.com. They rent everything you could possibly need, from full size cribs, toddler beds, push toys, bouncers, beach stuff, etc. The prices are super, and they deliver, set up, and pick up for you.

We had a super time at the Pineapple Plantation and will be back!

Owner's Response: We are thankful for the kind words of our most recent guests. We do make every effort possible to create your five star home away from home. For our future guests, we would like to clarify that the beach is exactly four tenths of a mile. You can walk to the beach park in seven minutes or drive in three minutes. Actually there are twenty restaurants within a ten minute walk. We are glad that our guests appreciate that the Pineapple Plantation is a home, not a condo, that provides our guests with much more freedom, convenience and privacy.

Fun house in great location.

  • 5 of 5
My whole family loved the location and the house. Indian Harbour Beach is not crowded in the summer, but there's plenty to do and good restaurants close by. It's nice to be able to walk or take a quick drive to the beach.

The house is comfortable, reasonably priced, and memorable.

We enjoyed hanging out on both patios. The upstairs patio can be a bit brutal when it's sunny, but is really nice at night. The garden and backyard are nice and were kept in good condition. The master bedroom is swank. The hot tub is fun, although it's usually too hot to deal with during the summer.

The stairs could be rough for little kids.

The kitchen has all the necessities. It seems like the oven and stove take an abnormally long time to cook.

The office and the rest of the downstairs are really nice. The lights in the house are confusing - I spent an exorbitant amount of time trying to figure out which switch went with which light - and never really mastered it! Also, throw away some of those old remote controls to make life a little easier.

Overall, we are 100% happy with this rental, and recommend it for others.

It was a very nice home. Very relaxing. Very quiet. Enjoyed the beach. All of the appliances were very up to date, and loved the hot tub and color effects to set the mood while watching the stars at night. Well worth it, and the owner's were very friendly and accommodating. Didn't have the bottle of wine offered, did we did enjoy all of the family time together it offered.

Fun, relaxing time

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an awesome vacation while staying in this beautiful home. The home was very cozy and comfortable! The kitchen was well equipped. Everything was exactly as listed. The home was very clean and welcoming. It had a gorgeous yard with flowers and fruit trees. It was just a short ride to the beach. The owners were very welcoming and were readily available, just a phone call or e-mail away, during our stay for any questions that we had. I highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit Satellite Beach.
