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
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!

SECLUDED AND PEACEFUL
WE STAYED 22-29 AUG 2019 AND LOVED EVERY MINUTE. A FEW THINGS WERE A CHALLENGE, BUT WORKABLE; TAKES 2-3 TIMES TO FLUSH THE TOILET; TABLE CHAIRS AT DINING TABLE ARE BAR STOOLS SO NO NORMAL SEATING CHAIRS, TV SOUND IS HARD TO HEAR; MUST PHYSICALLY CHANGE CABLE CONNECTION TO GO FROM TV TO DVD AND VICE VERSA. JIM & DEE HELPED US WITH ANY PROBLEMS AND ARE CLOSE BY. GREAT FOLKS!!
We are very sorry that your experience at Melbourne Beach House was not perfect.
We are here 24/7 to make sure that any issues that come up are addressed as quickly as possible. If we had known about your difficulty with the toilet ... would have fixed it in a minute. The high quality cherry wood "counter top" height dining room table was selected to provide better views of the ocean and the beach while our guests are dining, the matching chairs are not stools they have regulation seats and backs ... they are just taller to match the height of the table. The TV is a standard TV with lots of volume. Perhaps the DVD or other TV unit had their own volume turned down ... again if we would have known your difficulty with hearing we would have fixed the issue. We strive to make every guest's experience at Melbourne Beach House exceptional, we are here almost 24/7 to assist our guests with any problems or issues, however, they need to let us know that something is a problem before we can address it.
It was a beautiful place! Only steps to the beach! Wonderful views! Very reasonable price! We would definitely go back!
The Only Way to Beach
This property has it all, you won’t want to leave. Even though it’s close to so many other attractions, the comforts of the luxury apartment outweigh the desire to go anywhere else.
During our stay, we utilized the close proximity to the beach to take advantage of quick lunches in the kitchen and breakfast with a view. At night we enjoyed watching sea turtles emerge from the water as well as soaking in the hot tub.
The property manager and her husband were also very welcoming and even went out of their way to teach us how to paddle board. (We saw sea turtles swim right under neath us too!)
In short, if you enjoy the beach, not a lot of people (very private), and wildlife galore... this is the place for you.
No tv in BR. No washer dryer. However an awesome stay and location.
We had such a wonderful time relaxing during our stay at this property and it was in a great location. George and Dee truly made us feel comfortable and w definitely will stay again if possible.
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.
