Luxury 4-bedroom designer villa with private heated pool - 100 yards from a private beach. The house is beautifully furnished and sleeps 10. The 2 wing layout is ideal for 2 families as each wing features a master bedroom and a room for children, and a bathroom. The modern, designer kitchen and large comfortable living room are in the center of the house, separating the 2 wings and both open on to the very private veranda and heated pool.
Vero Beach is a lovely upscale resort town, just north of Palm Beach. Besides relaxing by your private heated pool, or taking long walks on our beautiful beach, you can enjoy area activities like golf, tennis, shopping, boating, jet skiing, and more.
The house is approximately 1 1/2 hours from Disney World in Orlando - you can enjoy the parks for a few days, then come back and relax by the pool and beach!
Although I grew up in Vero Beach, I now live in Barcelona with my husband and 3 children. I went to Vero Beach High, graduated in 1983, then to University of Florida and then to INSEAD in France for my MBA. I work for a social enterprise called Worldreader - our mission to to promote literacy in the developing world by providing kids access to e-books using e-readers and mobile phones. For more about that see www.worldreader.org.
Eizabeth Wood, owner or Norman Hensick, local agent purchased this house in 2007
I grew up in Vero Beach and my grandmother had a house on the beach nearby. When she died, she left our family a small amount of cash, which we used to buy the land for this beach house. In 2007, my brother and father, who are builders in Vero, built this dream vacation house for us. As we live in Barcelona, we only are able to use it a few times each year. We rent it out when we aren't using it to help pay the bills!
Most often on the beach you will be alone, or there may be a fisherman or two - but there's never a crowd! We love walking for miles along the beach - and almost always you'll spot manatees or dolphins along the way!
We loved our stay in this spacious, clean, and functional home. It has a heated pool with fencing that keeps out toddlers and is located 2 houses from the beach. The layout of the house makes it great for extended families or even 2 families as there are 2 bedrooms on each side of the house with common rooms as a buffer. We would return without hesitation!
The house is very attractive and comfortable. We've rented several houses in the Vero Beach area, and this house was our favorite.
This was our third stay at this property...and again it was an amazing experience.
Things you should know:
The house has an open floor plan and is very modern/clean.
The owners were very nice to work with and attentive to our needs.
The house is a short walk from the beach (60 seconds).
You can hear the ocean from the back yard.
The back yard is 100% private and the veranda has ceiling fans to keep you cool.
A protective barrier is available to keep kids from falling into the pool.
The outside shower for sand and tar removal is private.
The house has great water pressure in the showers and sink.
The neighbors are quiet and friendly.
The beach is private. We were often the only people on the beach.
There is a 7-11 about 2 miles away. For groceries, the Publix and Fresh Market (highly recommend) are about 15 minutes away.
The house has plenty of tools for cooking. This includes an outdoor gas grill.
I took my son hiking at Pelican Island and my wife spent some time at the local shops. We had an excellent time. However, the majority of our time was spent in this house/pool cooking, eating, swimming, and relaxing.
I would (and do) recommend this property to everyone I know.
My family had a great time. The location of the house near the beach was perfect with a great pool right outside. The home was very clean with no issues with the owners being very accommodating and welcoming. Great house!
This trip was our second month long visit to this house. It was just as comfortable as the first time. The house is clean, and well maintained inside and out. The pool area is perfect, with outdoor living and dining on the veranda.
The location is convenient to downtown Vero and on a quiet street across from the beach.
Vero beach is a beautiful city too. Good shopping and excellent restaurants. The Saturday farmers market is a lot of fun and great for fresh seafood as well as vegetables.
We highly recommend this property.
...our son keeps on asking during the whole year. I say "Soon, as soon as possible!" and just can't wait to be back to our summer home. Truly, it became our summer home in the past few years we spent our holidays there. And we will come here again... and again... and again.
The reasons are symple:
- beautiful house (modern, but homy and very clean), just as you see it on the pictures
- just few steps to the ocean
- equipped with everything you or your kids might need during the stay,
- situated far enough from the big busy city-life to be able to relax,
- close enough to the main entertainment sights and malls
- friendly, helpful and very kind owner
We can only suggest to visit this beautiful place! You won't regret it!
This is by far the best vacation property we have ever stayed in. The home appears to be brand new and is extremely clean! It has everything you need - just pack your clothes and sunblock. In addition, the owner also provides everything someone would need for a young child. The gate around the pool, which is easy to access and removable if you would like, is a nice add if you have a little one and want to enjoy the backyard without concern of them falling in. Even though this property is not listed as beachfront our walk was shorter than the oceanfront condo that we normally stay in to actually stand on the beach - no worries about a busy street or traffic and the private trail is picture perfect. The beach is very secluded, private, clean with clear water. Added items to this home include nice beach towels for everyone, movies, books to read, board games for the kids, etc. If you are looking for a real vacation get away this is definitely the place for any person, couple or family. We will definitely return - nothing can beat it! Sitting on the back terrace in the secluded backyard for my morning coffee - the view was priceless!
Vero Beach is an exclusive resort town about 1 hour north of Palm Beach. It is under 2 hour drive to Walt Disney World. Also about 2 hour drive to Miami.
