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 Florida Central Atlantic Coast

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.

  • 5 of 5

Maria,

We had a wonderful time spending the week in your beautiful home! There were 9'of us, my two adult daughters with their husbands, my son, my husband ,and also my two middle school aged daughters . There was plenty of room for all of us. We spent a lot of time around the pool and walked to the beach which was a few steps down the path .The beach towels, umbrella, chairs, accessories , everything we needed was there. Very quiet neighborhood. The beds were very comfortable. We prepared meals and found plenty of plates, utensils, and cookware. We also found several wonderful restaurants in the area. We drove to Disney and Universal a couple of days. We really had a perfect week! Any questions we had were promptly answered! Thanks for being so friendly and for making our YOLO trip so wonderful !

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!

we are a family of 9 and stayed a week. it was perfect in every single way. the best part is the owner whose kindness and consideration for our needs was simply outstanding. Cooperate with her in every way because she deserves decent, compliant renters. This is a place to truly fall in love with!

DO NOT RENT THIS HOUSE

  • 1 of 5

We rented this house in the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. We were particularly attracted to the owner's promises on the VRBO website that the house and location was 'tranquil', 'peaceful' and 'quiet'. When we arrived we discovered that the owner had failed to warn us about a major active construction site adjacent to the rental house. The noise and activity from the construction work ruined our vacation. We are now taking action for Fraudulent Misrepresentation to recover our rental payment.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry this reviewer left in anything other than the highest of spirits.  The construction mentioned is a single family home being built by its owner.  Though I know construction is not a silent activity, none of the previous 8 guests since the building started have complained of disturbing noise, nor have the neighbors or guests at another Homeaway rental immediately next door to that lot, nor my guests that followed this reviewer. The noise complaint came to me from this guest in a phone call only two days before his 15 night stay ended. The timing was puzzling, but I gave the guest the benefit of the doubt. I offered generous compensation for his grievance but he refused. Upon his return home, the reviewer demanded I agree within 3 days to refund him the cost of his full 15 night stay or he would take action against VRBO and against me. It felt wrong for me to comply with this unreasonable demand. I take pride in doing everything within my power to assure that my guests have a wonderful vacation.  All the 49 prior 5 star reviews are small consolation for having not been successful with this guest.

Wonderful location to relax in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this lovely home in Vero Beach. Our family (3 early 20-somethings included) and for a bit 3 other adults all enjoyed the house immensely. The layout is perfect to allow those early risers or night owls to be in one part of the house while others slept. The pool area can't be beat. It is totally secluded and peaceful. The house is a very short walk down a private path to the ocean and lovely near-empty beach. Vero Beach has good restaurants and shops, but it not at all crazy or loud. One or two house issues were taken care of immediately by the homeowner (thanks, Maria!). I would gladly return!
