About the property

2400 Sq Ft Air-conditioned, Ship-like Ocean Views. Wraparound Terrace. More

Large, LIGHT, upscale oceanfront condo with oceans views that are so close and so being on ship. Over 2400 sq. feet under air conditioning. Perfect for a couple or familypopSleeps 6 comfortably. Picture-book ocean views from kitchen, living room and two of the three bedrooms. Large wraparound terrace (screened and with sliding glass doors) ,faces the ocean and is perfect for reading, casual dining and napping in the shade. Watch pelicans, osprey and hawks fly-by at eye level. Enjoy the sunrise, an ever-changing sea-scape, rainbows and sunset unobstructed. You'll see breath-taking moon, planet and constellation views at night.

This condo features high ceilings, an airy, open floor plan and tasteful decorating. Enjoy floor-to-ceiling light from eastern (sunrise), northern and western (sunset) exposures. Most of the furniture and bedding is new. All of the mattresses are thick memory-foam: the best available for firm sleeping support. To make your vacation memorable, owners will provide live orchids, per-arrival grocery shopping and arrange maid service (extra fee) during your stay.

The Beach Villas are considered by many to be Sea Oaks' most desirable community...just 6 apartments per building at the quiet south-end of Sea Oaks. This apartment is located in the Beach Villa building furthest south, overlooking dense foliage and palms on one side. While very few Beach Villa apartments are available as rentals, this one's intimate location makes it especially desirable.

You enter the condo directly from the elevator to an entry foyer flowing to a large dining room/living room combination. Eight adults can sit comfortably at the glass-top dining table. The living room features an overstuffed couch, love seat and chair (all new) and a 50' Toshiba TV (new), DVD player and cable with premium cable services (e.g. HBO) included. The master bedroom offers a king sized memory-foam bed and large windows looking directly down at the beach. Each of the three bedrooms opens to private terrace, all screened. Two of the terraces face the ocean and have sliding glass doors. The third bedroom terrace overlooks the pool and doubles as an office. Your condo includes a 2 car garage (very rare at Sea Oaks) on the ground floor of the building. It's just a 2 minute walk to beach or the pool/ jaccuzzi.


OPTION TO BUY: Condo is also available for sale, direct from the owner, for $900,000 fully furnished. That includes hurricane-grade sliding doors on all terraces facing the ocean ($100k cost) plus new appliances and paint. Sea Oaks Maintenance Fees: $2743/Qtr. Club Fees: $1689/Qtr. Food & Bev Minimum: $500 -1000/Yr.


Sea Oaks is a five-star private beach and tennis gated community in Vero Beach. Sea Oaks stretches from the Atlantic ocean to the Indian River inter-coastal waterway (called the 'lagoon') . Lush tropical landscaping and century old sea oak trees are everywhere. There are 16 hard-tru tennis courts (impeccably maintained), a tennis pro-shop with 4 pros on staff, and a private beach club with lunch and dinner service. Activities at the beach club include a BBQ on Wednesday evenings and happy hour on Friday evenings where residents and guests gather to socialize and make new friends. Enjoy frequent pro exhibition tennis matches. Tennis clinics are offered for all levels of play. Sundays include free movie nights. There are walking paths throughout the community as well as a marina for fishing and kayaking. Numerous social activities are ongoing during the season. A two million dollar fitness center and community center opened in 2009. The Sea Oaks style is sophisticated, casual and unpretentious.

Membership entitles all renters unlimited use of all the facilities at no charge. Food and beverages are billed separately.

About Andrew Lane

We are happy to add flowers and fresh orchids to the apartment prior to your arrival. We can make a pre-arrival grocery trip as well. Maid serve can be arranged if you desire during your stay.

Why Andrew Lane chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

Our condo is in the most private of the 5 Beach Villa buildings. Most of the condos in our building are occupied by the original owners.

The Best Summer Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is outstanding. We spent nearly three months over the summer in this extraordinary space, while we searched for our own place to purchase in Vero. The only downside was that not much could compare to this amazing place. The panoramic views look like a Go Pro picture. Our kids each enjoyed a private room with their own balcony. The unit looks over greenery and Ocean. I woke up every morning early just to glimpse at the amazing sunrise! Very well furnished and stocked with anything you may possibly need. Conveniently located by a main highway in and access to the infamous jungle trail for any adventurers. The facilities especially the Sea Oaks Gym is the best on the beach hands down! Food at the club was delicious! The unit is a short drive to Ocean Dr. for shopping and great dining! We miss it so much and hope to return soon as we extend our search for own piece of paradise in Vero Beach... tough act to follow!!

In addition, the owners checked in with us occasionally even while they were traveling over seas to make sure we were enjoying our stay. My better half is embedded in the Hospitality industry for 17 years. He was so impressed with the entire experience he wants to go back for the holidays. Five stars all the way! Thank you for sharing your space with us. :))

Lovely Rental

  • 5 of 5

This property is tastefully decorated and provides immediate beach access and beautiful views. The owner is wonderful to work with. The unit is very clean and well appointed. There is ample space for occupants to have some privacy, including a secluded balcony off one of the bedrooms with a very comfortable chair to read and relax in. You will not be disappointed with this unit.

Vero Beach is unlike any other Florida city. There are virtually no high-rises. No traffic jams. No stress. While not a large city, Vero boasts it own art museum, three live theaters (one just for children) and soon its own ballet company. Vero offers upscale shopping, an antique district, a Duplicate Bridge club, great restaurants and even an outlet mall. Nature is the big attraction for many. The Indian River lagoon is regarded as one of the worlds most diverse ecosystems and can be easily kayaked ($45 for 4 hour tours). Dolphin and manatee are common sights in the lagoon and sea turtle nests dot the beach during Summer/Fall. The ocean is both shallow and clear which is great for snorkeling and scuba (25 feet off shore). About 7 miles from Sea Oaks is Sebastian inlet, which connects the Lagoon to the ocean. Excellent fishing and surfing. Kelly Slater, the #1 surfer in the world, trained there.
