About Al Roberts, Property Manager @ Beach Houses in Paradise
I'm a semi-retired Dad in his early 50s with a finance & IT background. I spent the most productive 25 years of my life confined indoors staring at a computer screen while living in beautiful Miami. (As I'm originally from cold & windy Chicago, palm trees, sand, dolphins & water this beautiful seemed so exotic to me, these beach houses were mythical, a dream almost, not real...) Now I'm in semi-retirement, and keeping busy helping vacationers find and enjoy the amazing "Treasure Coast" area of Southeast Florida, and the incredible towns of Stuart, Jensen Beach and Ft. Pierce . . . Sharing the dream!
Why Al Roberts, Property Manager @ Beach Houses in Paradise chose Stuart
The property is located a few minutes east of city of Stuart, in Martin County, Florida. What is Stuart like? Are you old enough to remember TV's "Andy Griffith" show? Locals call Stuart the"Mayberry of Florida". But you need not rely on local pride: Check out these awards recently garnered by Stuart and Martin County FL: Coastal Living Magazine: #1 Happiest Seaside Town in America House Beautiful Magazine: #1 Most Beautiful Small Town in Florida Smithsonian Magazine: #3 Best Small Towns to Visit in the U.S. America In Bloom (Audubon group ): #1 Most Beautiful City in America Huffington Post: "Top Florida Beach Towns" FindTheHome: #1 Best Place to Retire in the U.S. OnlyInYourState: 1 of 8 "Most Beautiful Small Towns in Florida" And there's more: Our ocean-to-river beach houses are like almost none other in the entire United States. There are only 60 or so houses in America like BHIP houses: (directly on the ocean, directly on a wide river, private deeded access to the river, and ocean access through through an inlet just minutes away, and warm weather year-round). Plus: Our homes are located within a one-hour drive of the Miami/Ft.Lauderdale/West Palm Beach metropolitan area and within a 2-hour drive of Orlando, Disney World and other popular attractions and destinations. And the local private airport -- Witham Field in Martin County -- is just a few miles away, with long runways that accommodate both private prop aircraft and jet aircraft. So you can drive in, fly in, or even boat in! Gorgeous location. The perfect seaside town. Pristine waters and wildlife. ON the Atlantic beach. Close to the best of Florida (From Orlando and the theme parks, to Miami & Palm Beach, in less than two hours). And convenient to international airports. (Palm Beach International less than one hour away).

Location, location, location!
Booked a 5 day getaway at Heaven Can't Wait, and it didn't disappoint. Enjoyed sunrises over the beach with coffee, and sunsets off the dock with a cold drink. House was spotless, and literally had everything you could ask for. Water toys were abundant, or relax in the hot tub while the waves crash on the beach. Al was a pleasure to deal with, and was very attentive to any questions we had. Loved it so much, we already booked another week, and can't wait to come back!
Always what you need
Getaway while staying safe, so many sleeping options with a lovely view from every window, prompt and effective communication with BHIP team. Staying at a BHIP home is literally my favorite place to relax in the world.
As with our previous stay, this experience was no different. We had a wonderful time and the home was perfect for our family getaway. The home was clean and the Property Manager was exceptional, easy to contact, and always very helpful.
This is such a unique experience, with the intercostal waterway as your front yard and the ocean as your backyard. How could this not be a perfect stay-cation during a time like this? Too bad it goes by so quickly!
Sunrise to Sunset Perfection
We spent an amazing five days at this perfect vacation home! No detail was missed I’m what was needed for a stress free stay. Endless opportunities for water sports from skim boarding, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing and more! The boys never stopped moving from dawn to dusk! The best part is they were nearly tech free the entire trip! Thank you BHP for sharing your home with us!
We loved our time at the house. Great experience for 8-10 folks looking to check out of society for a bit!

ABOUT HUTCHINSON ISLAND AND STUART FL:
Nature lovers rejoice! Your beach house is located directly on the most bio-diverse river ecosystem in all of North America. (Manatees, dolphins, and more variety of marine life than anywhere on the continent!). When you cast your fishing rod off of your private dock, you are casting into the very same waters where the biodiversity measurements were taken in May 2015 by the Florida Oceanographic Society marine biologists. The house is also within walking distance of restaurants and three different museums/nature exhibits. You're also within 2 hours driving distance of Disney World and all the attractions in Orlando.
About the local community (Hutchinson Island and Martin County FL) -- Encompassing the communities of Port Salerno, Stuart, Palm City, Jensen Beach, Indiantown, Jupiter Island, Hobe Sound and Hutchinson Island, Martin County serves up beautiful beaches and more than 75 parks – not to mention the most bio-diverse lagoon ecosystem in the Northern hemisphere, the St. Lucie Inlet. All within two hours or less driving time of four international airports: Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and Orlando. Florida’s hidden gem, this is a place for unwinding and reconnecting.
In Martin County, you’ll find every kind of family activity to tickle your fancy, from rodeos to high-end shopping, art galleries, and one-of-a-kind museums to eco-friendly sea turtle adventures. Located just off A1A and accessible by a plethora of scenic avenues, Martin County is 45 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport, 90 minutes from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport, almost two hours from Miami International Airport, and two hours from Orlando International Airport. This is a place for escaping, for making memories that last longer than tan lines.
Conveniently located on Florida’s East Coast, Martin County is part of an area known as the Treasure Coast. A real Florida gem that celebrates small town life and that hard to find old Florida feel. Martin County boasts a beautiful natural landscape from ocean, to river, to lake, and everything in between.

QUESTION: CAN I COMBINE A FLORIDA BEACH HOUSE VACATION WITH A DISNEY WORLD ORLANDO VACATION?
Absolutely. For those interested in combining a beach house experience with Mickey Mouse, Disney World, Universal, and all the other Orlando Resorts: It's a pleasant two-hour drive from the Ocean-to-River Beach House to Disney and Orlando, driving along the Florida Turnpike. (Avoid the Interstate). Many vacationing families in our beach-house community will spend a week bringing three (or four!) generations together in a florida beach house, then "spin off" the younger side of the family to Disney World for a few days. We've seen it first hand: And it may just be the best way EVER to combine a Florida Beach House vacation with an Orlando / Disney World / Universal / Mickey Mouse vacation!
