About the Property
You will love this house on the Orchid barrier island east across the intercostal bridge. It is next to Summerplace in an old artist colony community. It is tastefully decorated with everything that you could possibly need. It has glass kitchen cabinets and a granite island in the kitchen. We recently put in white wood-look tile floors in the living room, hall and kitchen. We added a 350 square foot screened in porch. The backyard landscaping is full, rich, and lush. There is Florida jungle on one side to insure complete privacy. The outdoor shower is completely private and is enclosed in elephant ear plants. There are 3 giant sea oaks in the backyard. You can walk to the beach in 10 minutes or less. We provide 8 bikes to ride to the beach in minutes, and a bike trailer to bring umbrellas and chairs. You can also bike or walk to the Jungle trail by the lovely Indian River. This trail goes for miles north and south. There is another wonderful bike or walking trail along A1A to the Sebastian inlet. There are two BeautyRest beds in the master and the guest rooms. The third bedroom has a memory foam sleeper sofa. The first National Wildlife preserve is 3.5 miles away at Pelican Island. It is the number one nesting are in the US for Loggerhead turtles. You can see these huge turtles laying eggs on the beach in the evening. There is a river walk across the bridge with restaurant and live music entertainment. The Disney Vero Resort is next to the public beach area here. It has a restaurant and an eagle's nest bar. We will do everything that we can to make your stay enjoyable.
The beaches are uncrowded and quiet, quite lovely.

About the owner: My name is Roz Diehl. I recently retired from being a reading teacher with Boulder Valley Schools after 30 years.We live in Colorado but come to Florida quite often. We have a weekly lawn service, maintenance man and housecleaner to help with all of our needs.
I enjoy the Colorado hiking club and volunteering for our church for Literacy and a foster children ministry. I also work at area food banks.
My husband Paul retired from owning his own painting company. He is quite handy and enjoys keeping the place up.
Why this property? It's gorgeous, the neighborhood is cozy and quiet old Florida, great neighbors, quiet and private, the sea oaks in the back are superb, as well as the Frangipani and Elephant Ear plants that thrive in our backyard. You will love our outdoor shower!
We have been coming down to visit my mother and father-in-law for 30 years, so we know the area well enough that we could pick the best spot to buy our second home.
