About owner/property manager

We fell in love with Melbourne Beach thanks to Rafael's passion for surfing. Escaping the hustle of Miami, the serenity of a small surfer town was right up our alley. After marrying and starting a family, we still loved coming to stay in Melbourne Beach. It was so often, we decided to make it our second home. We bought the cottage, made it our own and look forward to making lots of memories here for our family.

Amazing beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Great peaceful beach house right on a nice minimally developed natural beach. Surfers and fishermen dot the shore. Private yard with outdoor shower and a fire pit. The kitchen is great and well stocked with essentials. Sunrises from your bedroom! Nice beach decor. Wonderful place we hope to visit again! Thank you!

Perfect spot for our family

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and well-equipped house and was perfect for the 6 of us including boys 10 and 12 who spent hours on the boogie boards in the surf. We were happy to feel we were in a natural environment with care taken to protect the dunes and the wildlife for their own sake and for future human generations. Everything went smoothly, Bricen was very responsive when we had one question, and we were lucky with the weather. The bird life is amazing-- even better than on Gasparilla Is, on the West Coast of Florida, where we have stayed a number of times. 94 pelicans flew over all in one long line! We will definitely plan to return.

Very Nice Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at Casa Playa, and we really enjoyed the property. It is a well-decorated, recently updated home. My husband and I were joined by our grown son and his friend, and we had plenty of space. We like the outdoors, and I can't say enough good things about the outdoor living spaces. The home sits far back from A1A and has a expansive, grassy front yard. Their backyard is beautiful - it is flat with a grassy area and a patio. Only a few steps down, and we were on the beach! The area restaurants are very good -- from New England Eatery for excellent seafood to DeAngelo's if you prefer Italian. We enjoyed Sebastian Inlet State Park and Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. These are all minutes from the house. Venturing out a little farther, we loved the Brevard Zoo and the Viera Wetlands. Bricen stayed in touch with us while we were there and made sure that we had everything we needed. This has been one of our most enjoyable vacations! Thank you, Bricen, for your hospitality!

The best location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Casa~Playa for six days and we could not have been happier. The home was beautiful and very clean upon arrival, it truly felt like I was home. THE LOCATION IS AMAZING!! No hotels or condos, almost no one on the private beach, I was in heavan. Bricen, the owner was extremely helpful and quick to respond to all inquiries, and “hooked” me up with the best fishing guide around Sebastian Inlet.

Bricen is VERY Responsive

  • 5 of 5

If you have small children and want to be away from the hustle and bustle, this is your place! Our granddaughter had toys galore to play with - great stash of toys, stroller, high chair, etc. We completely understand our visit happened shortly after a MAJOR hurricane and there was construction on a new floor not quite completed and the beach was eroded and quite rough. These small issues will not be an issue much longer. The little bait and tackle shop restaurant (Long Point) has a fabulous Friday night dinner and the Sebastian Inlet State Park is a stones throw away and is ideal for a three-year old. We had a nice, relaxing visit.
