Pets Welcome, Across from the beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 30 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cozy, quiet, newly remodeled home with a private backyard for relaxing in the hammock while you listen to the sound of the ocean. We are across the street from the ocean and have private beach access with a two-story tiki hut for shade or watching dolphins from an elevated view.

The backyard is fully fenced for pets. We also have pet towels, beds, bowls, toys and crates, to welcome the furry members of your family.

One mile down the road is a livelier beach with restaurants, surf rentals and music. Dogs are allowed on one end of this beach and surfers are on the far end of this beach. Walton Rocks is a more secluded dog beach and off-leash beach which offers scooper bags, water and restrooms.

The river snuggles up to the other side of Beach Club Colony where there is a boat ramp for guests and residents. Lower in your boat or kayak (rentals available on the island). Explore the river while you watch native birds, turtles and small animals as you glide along the waterway.

The home is fully furnished with linens, pillows, cookware, reading material, as well as internet, games, cable TV and DVD movies.

Bike along the nature preserves that dot the island and watch the fiddler crabs scurry.

For handicapped vacationers: Shower and toilet chairs available on request

About Jan

My husband and I love the beach and enjoy owning this home. We like to stay here and wake up 'at the beach'. Although we're only 30 minutes away, it's a different feeling to wake up at the ocean than to commute here. It gives us that 'island feeling' when we stay here and relax. It's also nice to walk the dog at night and just pop across the street and be with the waves and the moonlight on the ocean. sigh.

We do animal rescue and love to bring our dog here along with the foster dogs. We let everyone run their feet off, playing with the waves and enjoying the dog beaches. It's so laid back for them and us to swim in the water, bake in the sun and then lay out in the backyard while we BBQ on the grill. We love our days here!!!

Jan purchased this house in 2005

Why Jan chose Beach Club Colony

We love to vacation with our dogs and don't like being separated from them when we go on "non-pet" vacations. Sometimes, I have to accost strangers on the street to pet their dog and get my "fur-fix". We thought perhaps others would like to bring ALL family members on vacation, so created this pet-friendly environment for them.

What makes this house unique

Bringing your pet on vacation!! Smelling the salt air and hearing the waves even while relaxing in the backyard.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two months in this ideal-for-us, beach-side hideaway. Several things made our vacation so good that we have already booked again for next year: 1) The location across the street from the beach is perfect. Beach Club Colony has private beach access and a private, tall tiki hut for a cool drink on the beach. The beach road, A1A, has a sidewalk and a bike lane ,so it provides convenient opportunity for exercise in a beautiful setting. 2) We selected this rental because we travel with our English mastiff dogs. We choose only places with fenced back yards. This terrific place has a private, fenced back yard that's shady in the afternoons -- just right for the Florida sun. 3) There is more than enough of everything in the house that renters may want. from dishes to beach chairs and towels, even dog toys are already in place. 4) The hosts provide a comprehensive book with information about the area. This place has our highest recommendation.

Cozy Vacation Home Near the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we selected this property for our weekend getaway with our dog. We loved the hammock and the two-story tiki hut right on the ocean, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our dog loved the fenced backyard and the many places to lounge inside.

A true treasure

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet, friendly home with everything you could need for a lovely time at the beach. Loved seeing the sunrise from the tiki hut, and really appreciated all the thoughtful touches that make this such a comfortable and welcoming place.

We feel so lucky to have stayed here and thank Jan And Van for their hospitality!

Excellent, as always

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th year staying in this very comfortable, very clean, very accomodating vacation home. I was raised in this area and now live in NC. I come back every year to visit and would not even consider staying anywhere else. It truly is my "home away from home". It is very comfortable and has everything that one would need in the kitchen or at the grill, on the beach, indoor leisure activity, etc., and there is a large notebook that points to area hot spots for whatever one may be looking for, and some great restaurants are close by. Jan even has extra accomodations for your pets, including trennis balls to throw in the back yard, cookie treats in a big glass jar, and a big cozy doggy bed. It is much roomier than it looks. The private gazebo at the beach is a great place to watch the sunrise and there is an off-leash dog beach a couple of miles up the road which I went to for the first time a couple of days ago. It was not crowded and was great fun for me and my dog. You can't go wrong here if you have pets and are looking for a beach vacation with comfortable and clean accomodations.

A great house for the whole family, including the pets!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at this wonderful home. What you get is exactly what you see in the pictures and details. The back yard is perfect for the furry friends. Our dog could have stayed out there all day chasing lizards. The beach is a very short walk across the street and we often walked our pup to the beach at sunrise or sunset for a nice stroll by the ocean. When we wanted to spend a full day at the beach, we loaded the car full of chairs, umbrellas, coolers, the kite, etc (all provided at the house) and it was so nice to be able to park in a secured area right on the beach. The house is situated in such an ideal location. The neighborhood is quiet, and the beach itself was not at all crowded. When we did want a change of scenery, we took a quick 15 minute drive down to bathtub beach and a 25 minute drive over to the livelier Fort Pierce area. Jan was so helpful and sweet. The only negative thing I have to say (and at no fault of Jan) is the pesky noseeums. However, if you're familiar with southern FL, then you should already be aware of these annoying flies. Bring bug spray! Overall I highly recommend!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This house and it's location was perfect for our family. We wanted to be able to bring everyone to Florida to celebrate our grandson's 2nd birthday and it was everything we needed. My Mom is handicapped and she was able to get around the house and in and out easily and the fenced in backyard was perfect for our dogs. We were very comfortable with 4 generations and pets! Thanks so much for a great stay- we will definitely be back.
