One bedroom apartment right on the beach.
About George Hageman
As I was riding down the beach to Sebastian State Park many years ago this exceptional property jumped out at me and I wondered who lived there. As fate would have it I met the owner who later became my wife. When we took early retirements from our professional jobs 15 years ago, we joyfully decided to become inn keepers by sharing our little piece of paradise with others.
Why George Hageman chose Beach Woods
By the way, Beach Woods is where Google mistakenly puts the property. Our address is Melbourne Beach so please don't let this confuse you. The house was designed and built by my wife in 1978 and was completely refurbished inside and out in 2008. She explored many beach communities in Florida prior to moving here and chose Melbourne Beach because of the county's ecological sensitivity, including conservation and building height restrictions. We truly love this place! Its isolation, beauty, and distinctive offering of the finest sand beach with no hidden coral under the water to worry about is wonderful. The fishing is great as is the surf break and swimming. Just spending time in a beach chair next to the ocean provides hours of relaxed joy for us. Although VRBO locates us at the subdivision of Beach Woods, they are mistaken. Melbourne Beach House is not located in any subdivision or community. We are a unique stand-alone property situated within a nature preserve.
What makes this Apartment unique
We remodeled the house to further reflect our relaxed, informal, peaceful lifestyle. Although we created 4 lovely apartments we directed more of our resources to the two executives, one in which we chose to live. Attention to detail with marble floors, wood burning fireplaces, granite and tile kitchens and bathrooms, custom oak and pine crown molding and baseboards, and tongue and groove oak and cedar accented walls was our focus. Most of all the walls of sliding glass doors that allowed a spectacular view of the ocean, sunrises, moon rises, lightning storms, and rainbows were very important to us. Outside we created intimate conversion areas with stone and porcelain patios, wood decks, and bench swings among lush flowers and native foliage. We acknowledge that an additional wonderful amenity about our location here is that we can ride our bicycles less than 1 mile to the supermarket or we can peddle 3 miles to the quaint seaside town of Melbourne Beach. We believe we have it all!

We loved the Melbourne Beach House
The property was exactly what was stated in the listing. You walk down a few steps and you are on the beach. We were able to see a Sea Turtle laying eggs and then go back into the ocean. We lucked out and watched a SpaceX rocket launch from the balcony of the rental. At night it cooled down enough we could turn off the AC and open windows. This kept the rental cool and we could hear the ocean waves. The location is great to get to a lot of different spots along the coast. I would love to come back someday for anther stay.
No Crowded Beach
We loved this place. It was Memorial Day, but it was like we had our own private beach. The stretch of undeveloped dunes on either side of the place gave it a secluded feel, even though we were minutes from everything. It was clean and comfortable. Hope to return some day.
Everything we expected and wanted plus more. Nice. Quiet. Peaceful.
Lee, Thank you for spending your vacation time with us. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again in the future.
George & Juanita.
Perfect Spring Vacation
Kevin and I are busy innkeepers. In the White Mountains. We were getting away from the snow for about a week. Ibis is the perfect place for two people to relax renew and enjoy the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. There are restaurants nearby as well as fun outings. We would highly recommend this place. Secret tip… Coconut Cove. The atmosphere is lovely and the viewing of the manatees was a Lovely surprise. Plus it is only 1.2 miles south. Dee, George, and Juanita were gracious hosts. I informed us of the time change of the rocket launch. Which was spectacular by the way. Look forward to returning again soon.
Fantastic Stay at the Melbourne Beach House
My wife and I had a fantastic stay in the Ibis suite at the Melbourne Beach House. The accommodations were very comfortable and private. We had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was spectatcular. The beach here is beautiful and uncrowded. It is a perfect spot for a quiet and relaxing beach holiday.
Great location, you can not get closer to the Atlantic. Very relaxing, close to shopping.
We were there 2 weeks and loved the view and what amounts to a private beach. George was helpful in suggesting places to visit and a great host/owner. Great for 2 people and very relaxing location.
We invite you to spend time with us -- Relax on your patio and be enchanted watching an abundance of sea birds overhead or feeding them on the beach. Walk the beach in search of unique shells and sea glass. Swim or splash in the water of our pristine subtropical turquoise ocean. Board surf, kite surf, or paddle board the best breakwater in the area. Surf-fish for dinner from the shore. Watch sea turtles lay their eggs at night. Bicycle past villages that follow the sea for miles. Play golf or tennis, canoe, kayak, sail, or power boat just a few minutes away. Visit Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral, Disney, and the Orlando attractions a little over an hour away. We are in the perfect location to visit most of Florida within a day.
