About Kathy Mele

We have rented in this building for many years before we bought. It is less then 2 hours from our home in Ft. Lauderdale. When it is not rented, we spend most weekends here.

Kathy Mele purchased this condo in 2003

Why Kathy Mele chose Stuart

We loved the amenities that the Marriott provides. When we are here, we use the golf course, the fitness center and the lap pool daily. Our children also enjoy coming here. They have enjoyed the Plantation since they were in grade school. It is very safe. Before they could drive, they would jump on the tram and go everywhere on the Plantation. Our 30 year old daughter recently spent her honeymoon here!

What makes this condo unique

The Plantation is so pedestrian & bike friendly. We park our car and walk everywhere. The amenities are wonderful. Four heated pools, a modern fitness center, restaurants, beach, golf & tennis. Everything you need is right here for your enjoyment.

Nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the accommodations. The condo was spacious and had a great view. The beds were comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well-equipped for daily cooking and the availability of beach equipment and beach towels was appreciated. The owner is professional and responsive to inquiries. We would definitely book again!

the PERFECT place to stay for a relax getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my 12 month old baby and my husband for a month in Kathy's condo. We exceeded our budget but really did not regret it. If you are looking for the best location, near the beach (or should I say at the beach), with pools, bbq, complete kitchen, in a relaxed setting, search no more.

The condo is renovated, looks even better than on the pictures. The kitchen is fully furnished, I cooked for the hole month except 2 meals at the restaurant, almost everything I needed was there. The 2 bedrooms, even though they are close to each other, have their doors in opposite directions, and the sound did not go from one to the other (with the baby this was great)

2 balconies, one of them just over the pool, so I could go swim and my husband could tell me baby was awake from the balcony, really pratical.

We were there in may-june, very low season and complex was really quiet.

Beach is superb, wide, waves going from very small to surfable, depending on the days.

The condo is so close to the beach, if I had forgotten something inside, I could easily go back inside and walk back on the beach in 3-4 minutes.

The condo is equiped with boogie boards, umbrella, chairs, bbq ustencils, everything you need. washer dryer is 1,25$ each, works great.

We had some plumber issues during our stay, and a broken umbrella due to the wind and Kathy was efficent in fixing everything. There is a man taking care of the buildings here, so even if the owner is not there, we had people taking care of us just 5 minutes away.

If you like birds, Hutchinson Island is a great place to watch pelicans and other fishing birds. We paid a 25$ fee to Marriot to have access to the services on plantation: We went to drive some golf balls also (4$ the bucket), play some tennis (free) (but very hot), jogging on the property, jogging to the Publix (grocery), jogging on the beach, laps in the pool near the tennis court (3 minutes walk away), gym (3 min walk away). We enjoyed the spa near the pool at the Marriot, 2 minute walk away.

Only problem was the No-see-um, kind of moquitoes, very small so you can't see them, and they enjoyed my skin (but no problem with the baby or husband). One morning I had 50 bites on my legs. They come at dusk and dawn, depending on the period of the year, when there is not much wind. I just avoided beach at those periods of the day, and wore long thin pants and I was Ok.

We will definitly go back there if ever we go back to Florida some day.

Another great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth year staying at Kathy’s condo - feels like home!. The condo has everything we need , layout is great and the two balconies are an added bonus. Love spending time on the beach and having access to the Marriott pools is nice for those of us who enjoy swimming laps.

Kathy is great to work with and makes our vacation a success every year!,

Excellent venue to stay for us "Snow-birds"

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Indian River Plantation for the month of February 2018. Having access to the Marriott resort pools, tiki bar and other facilities was wonderful (Our unit had membership rights, be careful, many do not). All the renters and owners we met were very friendly. The pools and open areas were very clean and well maintained. My wife loved that there was a Publix very near by. If you are a golfer The Ocean Club exec course on site was in great condition. We even received a one month reciprical membership (from our home YMCA) at the Stuart YMCA to play pickle-ball, exercise, etc. Would highly recommend either Pelican or Spoonbill buildings. Fun time...and the fact that the weather was perfect for the month also made the experience a good one.

Beachy Christmasđź‘™

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of Christmas at the two condos available from this owner. Both condos were well stocked (mimosas for 9 no problem!). Welcome gift included coffee...nice touch. Walked the beach every day. Use of bikes and beach equipment was nice. Quiet pool, was nicer than the Marriot. Made use of the gas grill for simple meals. Great place to stay!
