1 1/2 ACRE INTERCOASTAL HOME W/ GUEST HOUSE, TRAIL, BEACH, DOCK, PLAYGROUND

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Merritt Island - Loblolly

6 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 1 half bathrooms

Loblolly (original name given home) is a unique and special place to make lasting family memories. Your special vacation home has been featured on the front cover of SPACES September/October 2008 Issue (space-coast style and design magazine). Loblolly was a featured property in last year's Tropical Trail Spring Bloom Tour. Your vacation home sits directly on the Intercoastal waterway. The property was built in the early 70s and designed to be a place to retire. Loblolly was purchased from the original family in 2007. Just imagine... Evenings on the 2 tier beach relaxing watching the sunset.... enjoying the dock, kids in playground next to you while you sunbath at pool. The pool was designed for kids very large walk in beach area, a family stroll around Loblolly trail- a coquina path that circles the property...

WOODWARD FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
When we saw the pictures on line, we thought it was great. Who would have known that we would walk right into "paradise". There was something for everyone, and my 90 year old dad spend the majority of his time on the dock snagging anything that came along in the river. Had the time of his life. The grandkids were in the pool most of the time, and were worn out by day's end. It was nice to have a table that would seat everyone for a meal. If I could find a way to win the lottery, I would make Andrea an offer she could not refuse!!! I actually have some ideas based on this place that I can use at the family lake house.

To Andrea and staff: Thanks for making our stay the most memorable of all for the entire family. There was not anything we asked for or needed that was not provided by anyone.

We will definitely be back, it's paradise in it's fullest sense.

The Woodward Family......

Loblolly is Paradise!!

  • 5 out of 5
Our experience at the beautiful Loblolly Estate was perfection.

Being native Floridians, we have always rented large beachfront homes for our twice yearly family getaways. When we first found Loblolly, I just skipped past it; riverfront was not even a thought for us! Gratefully, one of our family members insisted we take a second look, and after speaking to Andrea (Loblolly's owner) she convinced me to reconsider and discover the pleasure of a riverfront retreat. So glad she did. The river view, serenity, frolicking dolphins, pelicans, boaters and nightly sunsets in front of the waterside fire cannot be matched. The kids crabbed, fished, star-gazed on the huge dock and built fires to their heart's content. The place is amazing for kids; there is a game room, sandbox, tree house, jacuzzi, heated pool, toyroom, plus a separate girl's bunkbed room and the boy's loft retreat. Both can sleep 4 kids in each room.

No expense was spared to renovate this incredible historic home. Every room is furnished and decorated as if the owners are very much there and you are a guest in their home. Books abound, as well as karyoke, puzzles, music library and even a great bingo setup (which became a daily ritual with creative prizes for the lucky winners). The kitchen is equipped for feeding a large group; we did not eat out once in the nine days we were there! Dinner was had nightly under the stars in the side patio, next to the outdoor grill/kitchen. I should note that I am a hopeless neat-freak and this house was immaculately kept. Every nook and cranny was dust-free and well maintained. Our grounds were swept and cared for daily by Jeremy (the grounds keeper); we were pampered thoroughly. The only complaint that we had is that the pictures did not do the house justice.............at all!

We are already planning our next stay.

Andrea and crew; thanks so very much for making us feel at home in your lovely little piece of heaven!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most wonderful time at Loblolly... the home could not have been better. It is the most beautiful and well thought out house we have ever been in. We loved sitting out on the dock watching fish jump and dolphins play. The children spent hours swinging and playing Captain of the Ship in the tree house, and no one could get enough of the pool. Every detail was perfect. We absolutely loved our time here-reconnecting with friends and enjoying the scenery. Andrea was so welcoming and so helpful.

Amzaing place to escape!

  • 5 out of 5
This property far exceeded expectations! It was so family friendly and welcoming. The outdoor play area was ideal. There were dolphins frolicking just off the shore and numerous little places outside to find peace and enjoy the surroundings. Fruit trees and beautiful gardens lined the property. Indoors, there is an abundance of toys, games, musical instruments, and activities for families to enjoy together. Andrea is easy to work with, and is incredibly attentive to detail. The house staff goes out of their way to ensure a comfortable stay. Don't forget to enjoy the game room, complete with Pac Man and ping pong! A truly fabulous vacation destination!

Pleasant Surprise

  • 5 out of 5
This property, if evaluated on web presentation alone is a classic example of the business practice of UPOD {under promise and over deliver} Prior to our arrival, we were expecting a certain level of luxury but were pleasantly surprised by a truly remarkable location. If Loblolly were a stock, it would be Apple reporting record earnings for the quarter beating expectations by a large margin and happy stock holders watching the stock soar on the NASDAQ.
Enough of the business analogies and more on specifics.
The property is immaculately maintained with well manicured landscaping. Majestic live oak trees frame the property which has unobstructed views of the Intercoastal waterway. Inside, the home is quite spacious with extraordinary attention to detail. There is no cracked or chipped paint anywhere, the trim is neat and well maintained. There wasn't a speck of dust to be found anywhere which is remarkable considering the 4000 sq feet of living space.The kitchen is worthy of a gourmet chef with granite counter tops ( of course) and Viking appliances. There is an outdoor grilling area which has to be seen to be appreciated. There are several areas of the house which alone could be considered worth the price of admission. These include the 150 ft boat dock which extends out into the waterway where you can fish or entertain, the pool/hot tub which was cleverly crafted to replicate a beach leading to the ocean. there is even a place in the shallow ( beach end) where you can put a beach umbrella. A large wood burning fire place in the living room area provides a convivial area for relaxing or entertaining. There are so many quality features in this house it is difficult to appreciate everything in one short week. When surveying the surroundings, one realizes that highly creative and imaginative people were involved with no timidity regarding taking out the checkbook. If Martha Stewart were there I can imagine her saying "I wish I had thought of that " or " I really like that, can I pick your brain? " Located on Merritt Island provides a nice venue for numerous activities including numerous restaurants, shopping and sites such as the Space Center. As an aside, you can watch the Space Shuttle launches from the back yard (this is another worth the price of admission alone items). In conclusion only the most jaded traveler would not be impressed or enjoy Loblolly. This not a complete review since there so much to experience and so little time. Perhaps part 2 ?

Perfection

  • 5 out of 5
Loblolly is the perfect place to experience what Old Florida River Living is all about (in style). From the gracious gardens to the walk in the pool to the boat house, not a detail was missed. The architecture and design of the entire facility is spot on. Every detail was carefully thought out. If you are hoping for a magical stress free memorable holiday, Loblolly is the place to be. We thoroughly enjoyed all there was to offer.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed Loblolly for what it is. We try to explain to people that home has an "old world" feeling. Loblolly's simplicity is what makes it so special not it's opulence. Thank you for your kind words. We hope to see you again ~ The Owners
