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.

Bricen is VERY Responsive

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.

Relaxing Time

We stayed here in June 2017. We all had a great time; it’s very relaxing on the back patio. You could hear the waves on the beach. The house was very clean, had everything we needed and more.

Perfect Beach Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just wrapped up our vacation and stay at Casa Playa, and we can't express enough how wonderful everything was! The location of the house is ideal for privacy and access to the beach. We found the beach to be very private. We stayed for just over a week and most of the days, we found only a handful of other people out on the beach. Saturday and Sunday brought in some of the local surfers and fishermen, which was fun to watch. All-in-all, much of the time it felt like we had the beach to ourselves with nobody in sight. It was heavenly!

Our 3 kids were never without something to do - inside, the house was well-stocked with all kinds of board games and card games. Our oldest son (a teenager) loved fishing everyday. There is a little local bait and tackle shop a stones throw from the house where we rented our pole from, and he caught fresh fish from the ocean each day, which we enjoyed grilling up on the grill at the house.

As for the house and accommodations, everything was so clean and well-kept. The house was very nicely decorated and maintained and we had everything we needed! Plenty of space for our family of 5 so we didn't feel on-top of each other, too.

We ate much of our meals at home after grocery shopping at the start of our trip, which is just what we wanted - time to relax and just enjoy the beach. It was wonderful being able to spend the days on the beach and just come up when we needed for lunch and dinner.

The property owners were excellent to work with - wonderful communication and everything was clear to us and explained well.

We would most definitely recommend this get-away oasis to other families and friends, and we will definitely look to come back ourselves and stay again!

Thank you for a wonderful Florida vacation- it was everything we had hoped it would be!
