About Maria Arroyave

I fell in love with Vero Beach in the 1990’s, when I brought my two young boys here from Fort Lauderdale to learn surfing. I liked Vero’s barrier island so much that I sold my medical practice and moved here. Now that the boys are grown up and on their own I love sharing the magic of my Surf Lane home with those who appreciate this very unique part of Florida as much as I.

My early years were spent in an American-staffed International school, followed by medical school, in Colombia. Though my parents were of modest means they managed to make sure all six of us were at least bilingual by graduation. After Residency in the Panama Canal Zone U.S. Army Hospital I completed my Pediatrics training in Orlando, then practiced Pediatrics for the better part of two decades in south Florida.

I take personal pride in hosting guests at Surf Lane, and enjoy doing everything I can to make their vacations memorably wonderful.

Maria Arroyave purchased this house in 2004

Why Maria Arroyave chose Vero Beach

Vero Beach’s barrier island, between the placid Indian River lagoon (inter coastal waterway) and miles of fine sandy beaches on the Atlantic ocean, is very unlike most other parts of Florida – little traffic most of the year, tasteful and carefully planned commercial development (two story limit except for two grandfathered 9 story buildings), tranquil neighborhoods, and almost no souvenir or t-shirt shops. The beach a hundred steps from my Surf Lane home is near a lifeguard station where more than two dozen bathers may only happen during Spring Break.

What makes this house unique

My Surf Lane vacation home is at the end of a cul-de-sac in a tranquil neighborhood, one home from the ocean. It is close enough to highway A1A to be convenient, but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The location affords instant private beach access, yet is shielded from constant wind and sea spray, and rents at more economical rates than ocean front homes.

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house will leave you speechless! We visited in August and it was the best family vacation we have had. Maria was wonderful and made our trip exciting. She gave us a great list of things to do on our stay. We had a rainy day and offered us to rent a movie. My children cried the day we had to leave. Thank you Maria for not just opening up your beautiful house to us but for giving us such wonderful memories of our family vacation.

The Best Vacation EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent two weeks at this home this past summer. It was the most fun and relaxing vacaton we have ever had. The house is located in Vero Beach literally steps away from the beach. There are many nearby grocery stores, malls, outlet stores etc. The pictures shown on this website DO NOT do the house justice. This home is even more BEAUTIFUL in person. This house is stunning from the inside and out with a great pool, landscaping and beautiful art pieces--many painted by Maria's mom. The house was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It was extremely comforting to know that the house is Category 4 hurricane proof! The owners, Bob and Maria are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They were extremely knowledgable and hospitable. It was a pleasure meeting them and some of their family members. Although there was plenty to do at the house (i.e. bikes, kayaks, boat trips etc.) there are so many near by activities you can do as well. Bob took us on a boat trip one day and the kids were able to fish and swim, they had the best time. We were also able to do many day trips such as Sea Word, Universal, Andretti thrill park etc. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone who wants to have a fun and relaxing vacation! We hope to one day be able to stay at this home again. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality and the great memories!

The home was beautiful, in a great location (yards from the beach) and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family-plenty of room for all of us. We found everything we needed at the home, and the owner did a great job communicating all details with us. We had a short walk to the beach-down a private walkway. The pool area was very nice and all the entertainment options worked well-TV, WiFi and all. The location of the home close to the beach shops of Vero Beach was also perfect. We would definitely come back to this home for another week in the future.

Amazing Home and Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our entire family. We traveled in mid October with our parents and young children. The house had everything we needed and Maria was very helpful with great dining and shopping recommendations to make the vacation perfect. The top of our list for the house was the heated pool, which was in great condition, the beach, which really is 1 minute away. and just the general condition of the house which was very clean and well appointed. Because we have young children we really appreciated that the house is all on one level, great washer/ dryer, hammock, giant tub in the master bath, and double doors (door and screen door) on all the doors. Our toddler cried the day we left because she wanted to stay longer - she had the best time - we may have to make a return trip!

Ultimate in relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a week with our family of 7 plus our two labs. The house was perfect in that it had plenty of room for us (often a difficult thing to find) as well as extended family that came over for dinner. Loved the private beach and the fact that the guarded beach is just a short walk. Having the pool also was perfect for the younger cousins to play in the evening. Our family loves adventure. Having the kayaks to take off the beach allowed our kids to fish and dive conveniently. The street is quite yet the location is close to shops and restaurants. Maria was an incredible host and did whatever it took to help us to have a very enjoyable vacation. One of the better rentals we have experienced.
