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 resort community nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River (intracoastal waterway), in Stuart, Florida.

As you cross the bridge to our scenic island, you’ll be welcomed by gorgeous views, ocean breezes, 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 balcony. The seating area is perfect for relaxing and enjoying time with family or friends. Amenities include smart tv, free high-speed wireless internet, cable, dvd player and keyless entry.

The dining area is perfect for meals at home. The kitchen is well equipped, with breakfast bar, 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 balcony 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 5-6 guests, with the sofa sleeper converting to a memory-foam queen bed.

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

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

Nearby, the Marriott has a tiki bar for lunch, snacks or drinks. There’s also rentals of paddleboards and surfboards.

Your neighborhood 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.

The town of Stuart, Florida is nearby, a friendly community with shopping 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 Stuart

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.

Overall we were very pleased. Well kept and appointed. Two issues would preclude renting agagain.

  • 4 of 5

For some reason the owner has not opted not to make the onsite mail boxes available. We have rented a number of condos at IRP and this is the first without mail.

We had issues with the climate control system. The system works well for the most part but sometimes turns fan or cooling off particularly at night.This causes the guest bedroom to overheat at night and be frigid I the day.The problem probably is due to our inability to fathom the complexities of the system.Renters should be provided a manual.

Owner's Response: Hello Tom, thanks for your visit and your message. I'm sorry to hear you had trouble with the temperature system. We are a smart home, with full wireless remote control of temperature settings. I would have been happy to help had I received feedback from you during your stay.

Condo is fine BUT

  • 3 of 5

It definitely is ocean-view not beachfront. Since the beach is a private beach, it can be rough to navigate. The owners are very considerate and take good care to provide you with a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Pat, thank you for taking the time to post a review. We hope all our guests have a pleasant stay, thank you for writing that. We are about 150 steps away from the sand on the ocean-side of our building. There is a boardwalk over the dune, as shown in our photographs.

Relaxing beach week with dolphins and manatees

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful summer break at Villa Sophia. Highlights were spending time at the beach and playing in the waves. One morning, we saw a pod of about 10 dolphins. Another day, we saw two manatees swimming by, and we could clearly see their noses as they surfaced to breathe. My kids found many shells and even some sea glass. We had a picnic most days at the beach, and it's very convenient to walk from the condo right over the dune to the beach. Overall, it was a relaxing stay, with everything we needed to feel at home.

Enjoyable Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Villa Sophia. As always it was a fun, clean, comfortable home away from home. Each year Susan manages to renovate something that is already nice.

We go with our two children who love the ocean, and the supply of beach items available makes it awesome. The convenience to the beach is perfect. You can view the ocean from the balcony when you are not enjoying it. Everything about the condo is comfortable. There are board games and books for when the kids(or their parents) needed a break. A grocery and restaurants are a short drive. We always walk to and eat at the Marriott next door once.

We look forward to returning next year.
