Oceanfront villa with two bedrooms, two baths and large balcony in Stuart, FL

Welcome to Villa Sophia, a relaxing oceanfront retreat on Florida’s sunny Treasure Coast.

Villa Sophia is located at the Indian River Plantation, a beautiful resort community nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River (intracoastal waterway), near Stuart, Florida.

As you cross the bridge to our scenic barrier island, you’ll be welcomed by gorgeous views, ocean breezes, lush landscape, and the charm and hospitality of the island.

Villa Sophia is an elegant two bedroom, two bath condo located directly on the ocean. As you enter, you’ll be drawn to views of the waves breaking just beyond the terrace. Enjoy the view, smell the sea breeze and watch for dolphins at your relaxing home away from home.

Inside, you’ll find an open floor plan with large patio doors that open to the terrace. The comfortable seating area is perfect for relaxing and enjoying time with family or friends. Amenities include 32-inch flat screen tv, cable, dvd player and high-speed wireless internet.

The dining area is perfect for meals at home. The kitchen is well equipped, including breakfast bar and microwave, stove and dishwasher. Even the kitchen sink has views of the sparkling blue ocean.

The master bedroom features ensuite bath, memory-foam mattress, flat screen tv, ocean views and terrace access. A second bedroom with twin beds accommodates children or guests. For added privacy, a pocket door encloses the guest bedroom and bath. The Villa sleeps up to five guests, with sofa sleeper converting to a full-size bed.

Outside, the ocean takes center stage. Relax to the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean from your double terrace. We have outdoor dining for four, plus two additional chairs and cocktail table for morning coffee or evening drinks.

The property features a heated pool with lounge chairs, two gas grills and convenient pool bathroom. Just over the dune is the pristine beach, where you can stroll, swim, snorkel, surf or collect shells. We offer beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys to complete your experience. Rinse at the outdoor shower on the walkway when your day is done.

Nearby, the Marriott features a tiki bar for lunch, snacks or drinks. There’s a deep-water marina on the Indian River, offering rentals of sea kayaks and paddleboards.

Your neighborhood, the lovely 200-acre Indian River Plantation, is located on Hutchinson Island off Florida’s famous A1A Highway. You’ll find a gas station and groceries at Publix Supermarket just minutes away.

We’re near the town of Stuart, Florida, a friendly community with unique shops and restaurants. The West Palm Beach Airport is a 45 minute drive. Fort Lauderdale and Orlando airports are 1.5 to 2 hours away.

Villa Sophia offers all the benefits of feeling at home on your vacation, while its spectacular oceanfront and beachfront location makes it a perfect spot for couples, families and friends to create life-long memories of time spent together at the beach.

About Owner

We're a family who loves to spend time at the beach. Favorite activities include taking walks along the shore, making sand castles, swimming and spending time together.

Owner purchased this condo in 2015

Why Owner chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We chose this property because it's a true escape. We're often busy with work, school and family activities, so an escape to the beach is a true blessing. At the villa, we enjoy family time and simple pleasures, like finding seashells and watching for dolphins.

What makes this condo unique

The town of Stuart and the Indian River Plantation are often referred to as "well kept secrets."

From our first visit, we were hooked. Our villa offers the perfect combination of ocean views, relaxation, beach activities, feeling part of a community and proximity to everything you would ever need on vacation, including great restaurants.

Ahhhhh, perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect. The veranda is perfect. The kitchen is perfect. What a fabulous place to spend the week! This condo might be our idea of heaven with the crashing waves of a beautiful beach on one side, and 20 tennis courts on the other. All amenities in the condo were appropriate and the kitchen is beautiful and filled with everything you might need. If you are coming to Hutchinson Island for a week, you cannot go wrong with this spot. Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

Beautiful place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at our condo and we loved it! The building is well maintained and the area is very family friendly. We love the ease of going from the pool to the beach! The beaches were gorgeous, very clean. We got to sea baby sea turtles hatch 2 different times. Our condo was perfect for our family of 5. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. The views of the sunrise from the balcony of our condo are amazing. The condo was well stocked and we had everything we needed for a day at the beach! We will definitely be back to stay at Villa Sophia!

Perfect on every level

  • 5 of 5

This was my families second time staying at Villa Sophia. While my parents live down the street, we wanted an ocean view.. and with 2 little kids crossing a dune is a lot easier than traveling by car for 10 minutes of beach. The condo is perfect for my family of 4. The beach toys/games/inside toys are what brought us back again this year. Susan has done a great job upgrading the flooring of the condo and her cleaning crew do a great job. The welcome back snack/drinks was a nice touch and we appreciated the thoughtfulness. Susan was quick to respond to all our messages. We didn't use the pool, but did walk down to the tiki hut for lunch and added our pails to her collection of beach toys for us to use next year. We will be back again next year :)

Beachfront Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a splendid time at Villa Sophia, and we will definitely be back again to enjoy this beachfront gem. Great location, clean and wonderfully decorated ... It has everything you need for a perfect stay. The queen bed has this great mattress topper. I went out and bought one for my own bed when I got home. The balcony is wonderful, and it's quite large. The pool is very nice. The beach is the best. We found so many great seashells. Susan is a fine host ... very responsive. Thank you for sharing your home!

Quiet Ocean Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A neighbor recommended Hutchinson Island as a quiet place on the Atlantic side of Florida. We enjoyed our stay at this property. The condo was decorated nicely, had nice furniture, and was a welcome retreat for our family of five. The beach equipment on hand were nice to have (umbrellla, two chairs, beach towels, sand castle plastics, boogie boards..etc), I let my daughters have a say for the place we were going to stay and the beach toys was probably the reason we chose this place, along with the ocean views. Hard to lug that beach stuff on an airplane.

The condo has ocean views from both living area and master bedroom, which is nice. There's a decent beach right outside over a small dune with access walkways, no need to walk up or down the ocean to find a beach, a nice uncrowded beach is right there. The Pelican building is quiet, we didn't hear any neighbors, no spring breakers here. The kitchen had everything we needed, we cooked 80% of our meals and weren't lacking for anything. There's a Publix a few minutes away.

The balcony furniture is nice, not that white plastic furniture many rentals have. The swimming pool was heated and was a nice area to relax in the evenings. Walking the beach was very nice and not crowded, there's a public beach with lifeguards maybe 1/3 mile North. Downtown Stuart, though a little touristy in the shop department, has a very nice river boardwalk. There are plenty of dining options in the area, we really enjoyed Carmela's pizza (Stuart, Grandma crust was very good), Mary's Gourmet Kitchen (Jensen Beach, fresh baked bread bakery and breakfast/lunch place, highly recommended), and Gettin Crabby (Stuart, very good fish restaurant off the beaten path). A lot of places don't take credit cards, at least many of the ones we went to, so bring some cash to cover, I had to run to an ATM for our first dinner out as I don't usually carry cash.

Timely communication from the owner, the condo was clean, would recommend and stay here again.
