About the Property
Vacation can’t come soon enough! Our 2250sqft. home sits just steps from Melbourne Beach’s soft sand and within a short walk of restaurants and beach bars. It’s perfect for friends, families, or couples who crave a relaxing getaway with all the comforts of home.
Our place is within a short drive of Disney World theme parks, Epcot, Universal Studios, Port Canaveral cruise port, Cocoa Beach, the Brevard Zoo, Cape Canaveral, and many more Central Florida and Orlando attractions - although you may be tempted to hang out on our quiet beach the whole time!
“This house is the perfect location! It is so close to the beach and the outdoor area is amazing.” -Hailey, August 2019
Our place can comfortably sleep up to 8 guests in 4 private bedrooms.
• Master Bedroom: 1 king bed, 32-inch flat-screen TV, en-suite bathroom
• Bedroom 2: 1 king bed, en-suite bathroom
• Bedroom 3: 1 King bed
• Bedroom 4: 3 twin beds
Each bedroom features large windows that let in natural light and plenty of space to unpack.
Sharing one bathroom is overrated! Our home has 3 full bathrooms, so there will never be a line for the shower. We provide toiletries, towels, and hair dryers so you can pack light.
Want to wash off without getting sand inside? Rinse off in the refreshing outdoor shower on the patio.
And a little saltwater on your clothes is bound to happen, so we have 2 washers and 2 dryers ready for all of your laundry needs.
--KITCHEN & DINING--
You’re bound to work up an appetite between all that swimming and sunbathing! The modern kitchen has everything you could need for cooking for a group. The kitchen has granite countertops and light-wood cabinetry for an extra touch of style.
Appliances include a side-by-side fridge/freezer, electric stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, Mr. Coffee coffee maker, and Ninja blender. The cabinets are stocked with cookware, dishes, and glasses, and a 5-gallon filtered water dispenser ensures everybody stays hydrated.
Take your pick from the many dining spaces: pull up a stool at the breakfast bar or the high-top table near the patio door, or settle in for dinner with the whole group at the large dining table, which seats 8.
The kitchen and dining area flows effortlessly into the living room, where you’ll find comfortable couches, a 55-inch Samsung flat-screen TV, and a huge wall of windows. This “sun room” is illuminated by natural light and is the ideal place for board games, movie nights, or just chatting with loved ones.
Need to get some work done or find a peaceful place to read? The den is perfectly suited for quiet time. This room contains a desk with a 24-inch monitor and a keyboard, plus a comfy couch.
Enjoy the gorgeous Florida sun on the private back patio, which is often the favorite area of the property. The patio contains a pool, hot tub (without jets), and chaise lounge chairs for endless outdoor relaxation. It’s easy to spend entire days out here, thanks to a supply of pool toys and a Weber BBQ grill that makes cookouts a breeze. Wake up with an outdoor breakfast and wind down with a sunset cocktail for the perfect end to a fun-filled day.
**Pool heating available upon request for $200 per week**
The entire home is equipped with WiFi and air conditioning, so you’ll always be cool and connected. There are also ceiling fans in most rooms for an extra breeze.
When you’re ready to head to the beach, don’t forget to grab our 4 beach chairs and grab some beach toys from the garage like noodles, boogie boards, and sandcastle-building gear. We also have an umbrella and cooler that you’re welcome to use.
Parking is available in the garage, which is large enough for 2 cars, and additional vehicles can park in the driveway.
Please see rates and availability on our Airbnb site. You can book directly through that site and reserve your stay. /rooms/s=67&unique_share_id=fc5eb6ce-d5ff-44d7-ab06-887d81ef35c1

Why Kids Love It
This is pure kid paradise! In addition to the private backyard pool, kids can run off to the beach without having to cross any streets. The peaceful beach has top-notch sand for building sandcastles and gentle waves that are great for boogie boarding or learning to surf. An ice cream shop is also just a short walk away!
Welcome to Melbourne Beach, a tranquil seaside town on the east side of the A1A. It’s one of the few Eastern Florida neighborhoods that doesn’t require crossing the A1A to get to the beach, so it’s perfect for families with kids who want a private, safe, and secluded vacation spot.
The area is heaven for outdoor activity lovers; you can enjoy fishing, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, biking, boating, and swimming without going far. In the mood for something more relaxing? Let the youngsters run free while the grown-ups walk to the coffee shops and beach bars just minutes away.

About the owner: We're Josh and Angela, both originally from the Midwest (St. Louis and Indianapolis), but we made our way to Florida, where we both attended FSU. We eventually settled in Tampa, Florida. We have three teenage children, and we have spent a lot of time taking them over to the East Coast to spend time with friends and surf at the beach. We have loved Melbourne Beach for some time now, and when the opportunity arose to buy our dream home in the “Golden Triangle” of Melbourne Beach, we could not pass it up. We hope you will love our home away from home as much as we do.
Why this property? Earning the nickname “the Golden Triangle,” this quaint neighborhood offers old-school Florida charm with easy beach access and a myriad of nearby things to do. Within walking distance, you’ll find lots of local restaurants, beach bars, and small businesses. Limited beach-access parking in the neighborhood means the beach is never too crowded. This area is truly a hidden gem.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
The backyard is lil world of its own and the house is a few steps from the beach!!
The home was great, nice and clean and a perfect location!! We will definitely be back!!
7 of us travelled to Melbourne, FL for a week of dragon boat camp and stayed at this place. It was perfect for us! There was plenty of room for gathering and also for people to have alone time. The pool and hot tub were great for soothing our sore muscles.
We will definitely stay here again!
The house is wonderful. The location is great. I've been asked if you can hear the ocean from the house, and the answer is, yes, you can - when the water is not calm. It's a nice, short, easy walk to stores and restaurants. The river isn't too far away with a great fishing dock. The ocean is very close. The house itself was very clean. The kitchen is very nice. The rooms are large and comfortable. The pool isn't quite as big as I thought it was going to be, but it is very nice. We loved the privacy of the pool. We spent a lot of time in the backyard, swimming, barbecuing, relaxing.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars was due to the bathrooms. The "second master bath" was very small. A larger person would find it very uncomfortable to use the facilities. The shower head was like a fire-hose, and couldn't be adjusted. The toilet paper blocked the flusher on the toilet. The master bath was nice, but the shower head is pretty low. Not the worst situation, but for someone very tall, it could be a difficult shower. The third bathroom (shared by the two other rooms) drained slowly, but was the best bathroom of all.
We loved the outdoor showers and hoses for cleaning off the sand from the beach. The full shower in the backyard was very nice, with running hot water.
We will more than likely return to this house next year.
We traveled to Melbourne Beach with another family for a softball tournament in Melbourne. This hidden gem provided ample room for 4 adults and 4 teenagers! There is plenty of room to spread out and we never felt on top of each other. The owners have done a great job decorating and provided all of the comforts of home- from spices to cook in the large kitchen to bikes to travel to the Starbucks 1.5 miles away. The pool, whirlpool, outdoor shower, and tiki hut made it tempting to not visit the beach, but at a 2 minute walk away, we took full advantage. Less than 5 minutes away is the cute downtown area with a market that has a great variety of scratch salads and sides, bakery, and great local beer. A few restaurants are also right there, making it a great place to hunker down! We were super sad to leave, but we are sure we will book again in the future!

Thank you Kristin. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We'd love to have you back anytime!
family friendly house near beach, shops and cafes
Our family of 5 stayed here for 2 weeks in October. There was plenty of space for us all. It was warm enough to use the outside pool without heating - which the children loved. I think the House had just been upgraded with a new big TV, whcih was great for watching movies in the evening. We drove to Disney-land Orlando for a few days and also down to Sebastian Cove. The grocery store nearby is great as is the brunch diner "Sunny Side Cafe".

Thank you for the great review Ashok and Felicia. So glad you enjoyed the home and the area. We love it so much. It is truly a hidden treasure! We look forward to your next visit!
This house is so comfortable and well laid out.. Our family spent the weekend and everything was perfect. It is steps from the beach, which we visited multiple times, The beds were comfortable, and the house could easily accommodate an even larger family. The kids enjoyed the pool! We will be back!

Great access to Beach!
Very nice, very clean house. All working appliances and all the supplies (pots, pans, utensils) you would need. Owner is very responsive and helpful (we had some ants in the kitchen and he immediately had pest control company out to fix the problem - which they did). The walk to the beach is short and easy. The beach is wonderful there. Only single family homes in the area so no big crowds. Loved our time there. If I had one crtisism, it would be the palm trees above the pool - they kept dropping stuff in the hot tub and pool and it was time consuming to clean it out everyday if we wanted to use the pool (which we did not because the beach and local sanctuaries were more important to us).Very close to restaurants and grocery (can walk to them). Oceanside Pizza was great and we've been using the local supermarket for years because of their great selection of craft beers and fresh meat.

Thank you Dan! We actually hired a lanscaper to come clean up all the "seed pods" from all palm trees on the property this week, so that should not be a problem moving forward. Looking forward to having you back next year!
A REAL TROPICAL PARADISE - FANTASTIC BEACH HOUSE
This was our 2nd year renting this beach house and we just love it. The new owner is great, and makes you feel like home. The location is perfect at the beach doorstep. The pool is stunning surrounded by tropical plants. The house itself can accommodate a family with kids and is very comfortable and cosy.We highly recommend this place and we will be visiting again
Stayed: August 2019Submitted: October 01, 2019
Thanks for the great review, Nicole! We've worked very hard to make the house as enjoyable as possible for our guests. We are glad your family had a great vacation!
Great beach house
This house really has all of the comforts of home steps away from the beach! There is plenty of room for multiple families or a large family with a lot of kids. Great comfortable rooms with their own beds and multiple bathrooms. The backyard is very spacious in a wonderful tropical setting with a beautiful pool area! The house is very open and cozy with plenty of room to relax and everything you need. Additional amenities that were awesome to have were the multiple washers and dryers in the garage. It is also close to restaurants to bike to or walk to and again just steps away from the beach!

Thank you for your wonderful review, Marci! We are so glad your family had a great vacation!
Melbourne vacation home
Our family loved our time at your Melbourne vacation rental, a 1 minute walk and your on the beach. Sea turtle tracks every morning and a lovely secluded beach. We were fortunate to see a space launch right from our beach also.A great breakfast spot is only 2 blocks away . The back yard is a beautiful paradise with all the plants and trees, we floated in the pool every day and night. This is a great slow paced vacation destination, steps from the beach and great for a family.

Chris - we loved having your family at the house. It is one of our greatest treasures and we love to share it other families. We are glad you enjoyed your vacation. We'd love to have you back!
