Fully equipped house... the only thing missing is YOU
PRIVATE BEACH !!! Very few places can boast of that!!! NO NEIGHBORS FOR MILES on either side of the house. Peace & quiet: Away from the road, you will NOT hear anything but the ocean and nature. No streets to cross. No hotel crowds. No noisy neighbors.
Nervous about alligators? Don't be: They don't exist in this part of Florida. (Gators can't survive near the beach in saltwater environments; they live only inland, where there is plenty of fresh water) At Bella Vista, both the river & ocean are salty.
THINGS TO DO:
Beachfront horseback rides right at your house
Orlando, Disney, Universal, & Theme Parks just 90 minutes away.... the ideal day trip!
Minutes away: Restaurants, shopping, nightlife, malls, supermarkets, pharmacies, everglades airboat excursions

World Renowned Championship Golf Courses (8 Courses within 20 Minutes)
Beaches (18-mile paved path--biking, walking, jogging)
Diving, Snorkeling, Deep-Sea & Shallow-Water Fly Fishing
The perfect set-up for family vacations & reunions.
ONE OF ONLY 60 BEACH HOUSES LIKE IT IN THE U.S.A:
This precious ocean jewel is among the fewer than 60 beach houses in the entire United States that sit DIRECTLY ON THE OCEAN and also sit DIRECTLY ON A MILE-PLUS WIDE RIVER with private, deeded riverfront recreation and water toys, and where the river empties into the ocean just a few short miles away. Start every day with breakfast views of a glorious sunrise gently emerging above the peaceful ocean. Usher in each evening with mesmerizing vistas of golden-hued sunsets rippling across the majestic Indian River.
A NATURE-LOVER'S PARADISE:
This Ocean-to-River Beach House sits on the southern portion of the Indian River, considered the most biologically diverse estuary in all of North America (according to marinelife samples taken by the Florida Oceanographic Society marine biologists in May 2015) From either the private riverfront access area, or the oceanfront deck, watch manatees, dolphins, and sea turtles frolic year-round. Birdlife abounds with ibis, egrets, herons, warblers, pelicans and more. And the fishing? Well, let's just say that while a supermarkets are conveniently located only a few miles away, you'll never need to buy fish from the market during your stay!
A WATER WONDERLAND:
In addition to the private beach, enjoy your own private riverfront recreation and entertainment platform, complete with complimentary fishing equipment (fully-stocked bait & tackle), snorkeling gear, and even complimentary water toys like paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks , rafts and more. Boats, jetskis, and windsurfing rigs are also available locally.
A TREASURE CHEST OF DELIGHT:
Bella Vista sits smack dab in the middle of the "Treasure Coast". To this very day, gold doubloons, pieces of eight and other spanish treasure still occasionally wash up along Hutchinson Island, especially following big storms during the summer (Complimentary beach-comber metal-detectors are provided)
HELP PRESERVE OUR PRISTINE AREA
The waters in and around Bella Vista are among the most biologically rich and environmentally sensitive in the entire United States. The owners of the home have been financial supporters of local environmental groups for many, many years. Upon your arrival, you will notice and appreciate the extent to which exhaustive measures have been taken to preserve the pristine areas surrounding the home in a no-impact, leave-no-trace manner. ("Leave no trace": After you have enjoyed your stay, the beaches and waters surrounding the home should appear exactly as they appeared when you arrived. -- No footprints, no litter, no nothing -- as if you were never there)
Help preserve the natural beauty and sensitive ecosystem surrounding the home:
* Do not touch or approach dolphins, sea turtles and manatees (who swim near shore). These are protected species. The Florida Fish & Wildlife officers in their boats have powerful binoculars, and they WILL arrest you.
* Be responsible with your fishing tackle. Avoid leaving behind loose line, hooks and other tackle after a successful day fishing. (Pelicans, egrets, heron and other birdlife get tangled in fish line or snagged by hooks ... or by fish they've caught who still have a hook in their mouth.
* Do not litter (this includes urinating into the water, emptying alcohol or soda into the water, and so on)
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, & all the other Orlando Resorts: It's a pleasant two-hour drive from the 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: A great way to combine a Florida Beach House vacation with an Orlando / Disney World / Universal / Mickey Mouse vacation!
Although the house is available for small-scale and modest events, it is NOT a party house. The area surrounding the home is environmentally fragile, and cannot safely withstand more people than the posted maximum occupancy of the home itself. Further, owing to turtle-nesting season & other environmental concerns, there are extensive restrictions & regulations that restrict or forbid lighting & noise on the beach area.
Events are permitted only to the extent that a second event contract is agreed to, setting forth obligations beyond the limitations of the vacation-rental agreement available here.
WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY & MOTION-IMPAIRED ACCESSIBILITY:
This home features an elevator that provides access to all four floors.

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.
Why Al Roberts, Property Manager @ Beach Houses in Paradise chose Fort Pierce
The property is located a just north of the 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 -- St. Lucie County International Airport -- is just a 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).

Beautiful beach front home & amenities for everyone!
We stayed at the Bella Vista Beach home from May 3rd through May 7th 2018. We had all walks of life here from grandmothers to 5 year old kids! Everyone enjoyed themselves and everyone each had their own favorite parts of the home! We held our wedding here on May 5, 2018 & it was amazing! Not only was the inside of the home spacious and airy but the outdoor aesthetic was just as grand. Big shoutout to Mr. Roberts, too! We had some questions regarding the outdoor lighting as well as the fountain. Then later on we had some more questions about the indoor elevator and each time we called him he made himself available and sent someone to the home who could help us out. Thank you! We love this home & hope to return for our first anniversary! Beautiful views from every room, what more could you want?!
Exceeded our expectations!!!!
Bella Vista House was a great experience. You need to bring only your suitcase! Al Roberts was very professional and wonderful to work with. My husband and I combined our two families of five adult children ages 21 to 30, with spouses we were 12 people. The home had everything from ocean toys to river toys. I highly recommend this home and working with Al Roberts. We are in the process of booking our next year family get together as I write this review. Go for it, you will not regret it.
We had 3 couples and 9 kids at this location. Loved the layout of the house. Great to be able to walk out the back to the beach, and across the street to the river. House was stocked amazingly with amenities, and we had absolutely zero problems at all during our stay. Variety of food and things to do both North and South of the location.
Make sure that you use bug spray! I number of us got our legs bitten up during the week from the sand bugs. Very itchy!!
Most amazing trip with accommodations that were above and beyond all expectations! Will rent again!
The property is beautiful and secluded enough for privacy with the beach just steps away. This home is beautiful and the amount of accommodations was absolutely mind blowing. We will definitely be using this property and/or manager for future vacations. Thank you again for everything you had to offer. The kids were, too, grateful for the amount of things available for their use!
Everything you'd ever want in a vacation rental home
Simply phenomenal place to stay--regardless of your group size--and the pictures don't do it justice.
Hot tub on the Beach, need I say more?
I've rented twice with Al Roberts now and you will not find a better, more professional company to rent from. They reply to questions no matter when you call and stock their places like it's your home. Particularly liked the espresso machine and multiple freezers. Be sure to bring your camera since there's great photo opportunities on this property with winding stone staircase and fountain. Love it!!
