Make a holiday villa in Sebastian your home away from home

Holiday villas in Sebastian are at the centre of the Treasure Coast, so named because of a sunken 18th-century Spanish treasure fleet just off the coast; most of which has yet to be recovered. As good a place as any to take up scuba diving, or any other watersport for that matter, it has fantastic beaches and amenable marinas. Sebastian holiday rentals are also ideally positioned for golfing, NASA, and exploring local wildlife preserves, as well as the Everglades beyond. All holiday accommodation in Sebastian comes fully equipped with air-conditioning, and most have dishwashers, washer/dryers, internet access, DVD players and satellite or cable TV. Only a few Sebastian holiday homes are accessible to wheelchairs, but most are family friendly, and come with pool access.

Things to do

-Attractions: Sebastian rentals give you a perfect launch pad for exploring the Kennedy Space centre Visitor Complex, about 65 miles to the north. There's so much to see it could quite easily take longer than a day, as other features include the US Astronaut Hall of Fame, the Apollo/Saturn 5 centre, and the Air Force Space and Missile Museum.

-Outdoor activities: Larger than the city of Sebastian itself, the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park gives you a freshwater watersports option with fishing, kayaking, and canoeing through the lattice of waterways. Guided trips are available, as well as hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.

-Beaches: The Atlantic ocean side of the Barrier Islands provide the best white-sand beaches, which stretch for tens of miles in both directions. Smaller, more secluded beaches dot the tiny intervening islands, if beach seclusion if more preferable and you have a boat handy.

-Nightlife: Seafood and American fare dominate the local culinary landscape, but a short drive north to Melbourne or south to Port St. Lucie opens your menu choice a little wider. There's not much in the way of frenzied nightclubbing; it's much more a laid-back beach vibe, with local bars, pubs and surfer hangouts.

-Watersports: With the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, the Barrier Island beaches, the peaceful Intracoastal Waterway and marinas aplenty, you have no shortage of watersports options open to you. They're all on your doorstep, so you can gently paddle though grassy forests in the morning and surf raging breakers in the afternoon.

Weather in Sebastian

Water takes the edge off temperatures, making summers milder and winters warmer, so Florida never really experiences the blazing heat of inland Texas or Arizona. Winters approximate British summers, with temperatures topping 20°C. The long, hot and humid subtropical summers can get up to the mid-30°C mark. Rain falls mainly in the summer as flash thunderstorms, dumping a load in a short space of time, which actually helps to cool things off. It's this temperature moderation that enables Sebastian to be a year-round destination.

Travel to Sebastian

Fly/drive is always the best choice when travelling to America, as—apart from perhaps New York—the place is designed to be driven. Orlando is the closest international airport at 83 miles away, with Miami a fair second choice at 158 miles away. While these distances may seem severe to British eyes, the road system is so well organised you simply don't worry about driving for a couple of hours to get anywhere. This also means however, that without a car, you're kind of snookered: in Sebastian there is no public transport.
