About the property

2 lovely bedrooms, 1 beautiful bath, sleeps 4-6 people

This wonderful mid-century home was made modern again! Located in the original Melbourne neighborhood of Indian River Bluff. Neighboring homes built in the 1920's. Lovely location just down the street from the Indian River...see it from the front yard. 5 1/2 miles to the Beach at Indiatlantic, minutes to Old Downtown Melbourne for antique shopping and wonderful restaurants. The King Center for the Performing Arts is not far either...under 7 miles!! Golfing Galore!!! Under 3 miles to Holmes Regional Medical Center, Melbourne Airport is close by and approximately 1 hour to Walt Disney world!! The wild life is plentiful in this area, too...don't forget the sea turtles nesting season starts in June. So much to do... you'll need to stay plenty of time to take it all in!

Fully furnished and ready for you to enjoy your vacation.

This home is beautifully renovated with all the comforts of home. We only needed to bring our own food. It's blocks from the Indian River and minutes from the local beaches. Our family really enjoyed our stay. Thanks to the homeowners being very responsive and for making the rental experience easy.

Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, romantic getaway.

This home has been nicely renovated and was very comfortable to stay at while in Melbourne. The home is very clean as well. Very close to beaches - 2 miles away. I would stay here again.

The work put into this remodeled house will amaze you! It is beautiful, comfortable, and functional. Renting this house made our stay in Melbourne that much better. On top of that, the owners are extremely responsive and helpful. We called with a problem with the washing machine and they were over within an hour to fix it. Unbelievable service and an unbelievable rental.

Beautiful home. Nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Loved historic downtown. Our favorite beach was Paradise Beach. Well maintained home as well as beautiful landscaped yard. Close to shopping, theatre yoga. Stayed 7 weeks. Would have loved to stay longer.

Sunny Melbourne

  • 4 of 5

This 2 bedroom villa is beautifully decorated very well supplied with utensils for home catering,it would have been a bonus if a gas BBQ was available as the covered deck was ideal for eating outside,the beds were extremely comfortable,one of the best experienced in many years of travelling,the house is well positioned for getting around the area,beach with free parking just minutes away,shops and restaurants just around the corner on the 192,golf course also on the 192,very reasonable green fees every one very friendly,on a negative note,I was surprised at having to pay for Internet connection,everyone is supplying this as part of the amenities,just like electric and water.If you check out Google maps it shows an airport just north of the property,the noise level was only occasional as the airport was not that in summary if you would like to stay in old Florida this would suit.

Had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Melbourne to visit family. This time it was just three of us and this house was perfect for our stay. The house was spotless, nicely decorated with some interesting pieces, comfortable furniture, and very nice beds. We particularly liked the highly polished terrazzo floors. The Wi-Fi was fast and the TV has a DVR. We did not cook much in the kitchen, but it worked perfect for what little cooking we did. We highly recommend this home and would not hesitate to visit again.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home the minute we walked through the door. The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and had all the amenities. All we had to do was unpack and get food. The owners were responsive and helpful. We didn't want to leave.

Charming, private, convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

As first-time snowbirds, we could not have found a more perfect spot to escape the New England winter. This property is beautifully updated, yet keeps authentic touches such as the gleaming terrazzo floor throughout. The spa shower is gorgeous, the kitchen has all new appliances, and the beds are super comfortable. The house is located halfway between Historic Downtown Melbourne and the delightful Eau Gallie Arts District, with easy, quick access to two beautiful bridges over the Indian River leading to the ocean beaches. During our four months in Melbourne, we frequently headed over to the public beach parks to watch the seabirds and surfers. The nearby Brevard Zoo and the Kennedy Space Center were favorite destinations, and for a quick bite or a special dinner, Squid Lips was our go-to restaurant. Just about every afternoon featured relaxing and enjoying cool breezes on the back patio. The owners Mike and Anita were just a phone call or text away, and they kept in touch to make sure all was well. They should be so proud of this high quality home away from home. We've told all our friends about it!
