Beautifully furnished and on the 16th (top) floor, the oceanfront penthouse is situated in the very well- maintained and gated, 82 unit Sands on the Ocean condominium complex. Includes the use of private garage.
Full ocean view from living room, dining room and kitchen, while both bedrooms overlook the Indian River lagoon and city of Fort Pierce. Spectacular sunsets from bedroom balconies, and sunrises (if you are an early riser) on ocean side. Ocean side balcony provides a great platform for star gazing on moonless nights, and beautiful moon rises, especially near full moon.
Pets NOT allowed, Non-Smoking, and two Adults Only.
The beach is just a few steps away on a private boardwalk from the secluded swimming pool area. North Hutchinson Island beaches have been named among the top 20 in the world in prior years and are spectacular at low tide. It's an easy 20 minute beach walk to the Fort Pierce Inlet State Recreational Area. Avalon State Park, Pepper Beach Park and the Navy Seals Museum are nearby. Vero Beach, a few minutes north, is home to many famous restaurants, challenging golf courses, and the Dodgers baseball winter home.
Many excellent restaurants are just across the A-1-A draw bridge in Ft. Pierce.
The condo is owned by an LLC, whose owner lives in Indiana. She is a retired English teacher and business owner who now has more time to spend at the condo in the spring and fall. Her sons and their families also enjoy vacationing at the condo.
Carol Ann Rohrabaugh purchased this condo in 2005
I purchased the condo in 2005. My family and I love the beach, the privacy and the floor plan of the two bedroom condo that opens to the east over the Atlantic Ocean and to the West toward the Indian River. When the 16th (top) floor penthouse came on the market, I immediately fell in love with it and bought it. With it being on the top floor, the views are spectacular. The building is beautifully maintained, and I have a manager and friends who will help with any concerns or problems which is very rare. My manager opens the unit and checks everything out before a renter arrives. I also occupy the unit before winter guests arrive to make sure everything is immaculate and in great condition.
The kitchen is open to the dining room and both overlook the Atlantic Ocean. There is a balcony right off the dining room and we love to have dinner outside with the moon over the ocean. There is always the sound of the surf and an evening breeze. There are virtually no flying insects because of the height. The living room has an LCD tv and a stereo system. It opens to the ocean view balcony as well. Both the master and guest bedrooms open to a balcony facing west with magnificent views of the sunset over the Indian River. The master bedroom has a private bath, walk-in closet, king pillowtop bed and LCD TV. The guest bedroom has 1 twin bed, a pull down Murphy bed, an LCD TV and an adjacent bathroom. The common areas include a library, card/game room with a pool table and wet bar, a large lobby which opens to a patio with a community gas barbeque grill. There is a workout spa, sauna with a walkout to the swimming pool and hot tub. From there a short boardwalk takes you over the protected dune area to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You can walk miles along the surf, with very little company, or you can swim or sun all day. All this privacy is only minutes away from shopping and excellent restaurants.
We were first time renters. The top floor views of the ocean and inland waterway could not have been better. The condo is well maintained and the owner was very helpful and truly a pleasure to work with pre-arrival, during our stay, and after departing. For active folks there is a lot to choose, particularly water sports and fishing. The condo is close to a causeway so it was convenient to get to the mainland without driving many miles. We also found the rental rate to be a very good value compared to others we had seen but chose not to pursue.
Where else can you eat breakfast on the lanai and watch Pelicans fly by, so close you feel you could touch them? The sweeping views of the beach generated lots of amazing pictures and likes!! 👍🏼 Watch the sunrise on one side, and the sunset over the intercostal out the back lanai, off the master bedroom. The building is a little older, but clean and extremely well maintained! The master bed was new, and very comfortable. Also, the other owners are extremely welcoming and friendly to the renters - a huge plus. Aside from the beaches, you can enjoy the pool, weekly social events, and a wonderful and bustling farmers market on Saturday. It's way more than just a standard market! Not to be missed. We stayed for three months and had such a great time, we are going back.
This rental is presented as described on the VRBO website. The views are truly amazing and the condo. unit is very comfortable and well cared for. It truly is a home away from home. All I needed to bring were my toothbrush and my clothes. You couldn't ask for a nicer owner to rent from or a better management staff. The owner was always available by phone and the staff and other condo. owners were more than welcoming and friendly! I would recommend this rental for anyone interested in a most relaxing and peaceful experience! Hoping to return in the near future!!
We enjoyed 2 months February and March 2014. The Condo is wonderful, bright with lots of windows. Nicely furnished and with a well equipped kitchen.
We watched the sunrise over the ocean and sunset over the Inland Waterway on the balconies. The beach is just outside your door we walked miles each day. There is a clean, well maintained heated pool and Hot Tub.
The Management is helpful. The other occupants very friendly.
We went to a potluck St Patrick's day party it was great, people very welcoming.
We enjoyed several good restaurants in Fort Pierce also the Saturday Farmer's Market.
Vero Beach is nice, about 20 minutes drive. Publix grocery is close by.
A great stay.
My girlfriend and I spent 2 weeks at this lovely condo in November, 2012. We were looking for the perfect place to fulfill our vows to each other and we can't believe how well this condo served our purposes! It's at the very top of one of the most luxurious high rise condo buildings on North Hutchinson Island. Right on the beautiful, soft, white sandy beach that has been rated one of the best beaches in the world. The condo had everything, was beautifully furnished and cleaner than a 5-star hotel. The views from the ocean side and the Indiana River side are both breathtaking. We are planning to return every year to confirm our love for each other in this heavenly retreat.
Magnificent 50 mile, 180 degree ocean views on one side and river views on the other. Marbled expansive lobby. Game room, exercise room, and heated outdoor pool. Beach rivals the best of Florida. Residents are friendly. Building is well managed. Condo is comfortable. Nicely furnished with balconies on both the ocean and river sides. Privacy is enhanced by the lack of cat walks. Entry to all condos is from inner elevator cores, north and south, to lobbies on each floor with no more than three units on the floor. VRBO pictures accurately reflect the beauty of the place. Condo owner is good to work with. Responds to suggestions and upgrades every year. We have spend two seasons here and heartily recommend it.
One of the most beautiful beaches in the world is right out the door. Scuba Diving, Swimming, Deep Sea Fishing, Kayaking, Beach walking, Sunning, Surf fishing, Shelling and Kite flying.

I own and manage the condo. I consider it my second home and only rent once per year. I am there before a renter arrives to make sure everything is in order and spotless! I am always available by phone to help with anything that a renter needs. I have a person on call to help with any condo associated problems. Sincerely, Carol
