Paradise Found is a 'happy' accident! I (Julia) grew up in the Sebastian/Vero area and loved being a child on the beaches here. My parents have always lived in Florida, but my life has taken me in several different directions. Joe and I were fortunate to find this special place and we are now so pleased to share it with our guests It truly is 'Old Florida' and a slice of Paradise.
Julia Hill purchased this cottage in 2012
There is nothing more special than having a wonder of nature at your door step. The Atlantic Ocean is a mighty and powerful thing full of interest and wonder. The beauty of the area abounds. Each season brings it's own special circumstances: Fishing, shelling, birds and the magnificent turtles that have nested here for centuries. Looking over the ocean and viewing the manatee, dolphins, fish and the occasional whale are truly spectacular. Of course just relaxing and pondering over the energy the ocean creates isn't bad either. The life force of the ocean is ever evolving and to have the chance to be apart no matter how short is priceless.
The unique benefit of this property is a virtually private beach. This truly is 'Old Florida'. There are no high rises, commercial traffic or other distractions. This is a very private part of the beach with private access. Yet! You are close to the things you want. Shopping and necessities are a short drive or bicycle ride. Historic sites are close by: Sebastian Inlet, The Cape and even the Orlando theme parks are within an easy commute. It's the best of both worlds. The guest unit provides a private accommodation with exclusive amenities of a stand alone property- while maintaining affordable beachside accommodations.
We had a wonderful time this week. We did sweep, but we watched the sunrise and tracked in some sand. Our last evening here we sat out back and looked at the stars. Roger's phone has an app that tells us what they all are, so that was fun. Jupiter was our find of the night. It is difficult to leave today but, sadly we must. Thank you for everything.
With gratitude- Roger and Rosemary
I ENJOYED MY STAY AND APPRECIATED THE LUXURY OF A BACKYARD AND LAWN ON THE ATLANTIC. THE FURNISHINGS WERE OF GOOD QUALITY, NEW AND COMFORTABLE. BEACHY, BUT NOT KITCHY. CLOSE TO MANY RESTAURANTS AND GROCERY, SHORT DRIVE FROM "TOWN" AREA NORTH.
BEACH WAS VIRTUALLY EMPTY ALL WEEK. OVERALL. A PLEASURE.
To be able to step out the back door and see/hear the ocean was unbelievable. I'm not a huge beach goer, but I love how the sounds are relaxing. One of the reasons I'm not a huge beach fan is the crowds. This was perfect having your own private beach. There were people out and about, but no crowds. The cottage is adorable. We greatly enjoyed it. It was a very relaxing week. I am not looking forward to being back to reality tomorrow!😊
Paradise found is like staying at your own house, Julia makes you feel like friends more that guest. She has the not overlooked any of the things you may need.
My husband and I spent ten very relaxing days at the beach cottage. We found it to be clean, well supplied and quite comfortable to live in. The decor was bright and fresh and Julia the owner obviously spends time improving and adding nice touches for her guests. We appreciated the high quality towels and linens not always found in other rental units. The best feature by far was the direct oceanfront access. It was wonderful to walk out the back door to a private yard that leads out to a very beautiful stretch of beach. It was perfect for walking, swimming, shelling and just sitting and gazing at the sea. As many others have mentioned, the outdoor shower with hot and cold water was terrific. We used it daily, especially nice after a salty swim in the ocean! We were fortunate enough to meet Julia during our stay and she is a lovely, friendly host but respectful of our privacy. The whole rental process went smoothly from beginning to end and we found Julia to be very professional throughout. We'd like to thank her for sharing her "Paradise Found" with us and would easily recommend this vacation spot to others.
This was my first visit to Paradise Cottage and "old" Melbourne Beach. Such a beautiful, restful spot. The cottage is charming, beautifully decorated, comfortable and very, very clean! Since I was solo on this trip, I didn't cook but the kitchen was well stocked for those who prefer to eat in. Sunrise and sunset on the beach are beautiful and just a few steps out the back door. I love a long walk on the beach and this beach could not have been more pleasant! I took a couple of day trips and the local towns are charming, easy to access with plenty of shopping, antiquing, something for everyone. I'm familiar enough with the area to appreciate how accessible the larger attractions of Disney and Cape Canaveral are for those looking for additional adventure. Julia is an exceptional hostess and I look forward to spending many more relaxing days at Paradise Cottage.
We had a great time at the cottage! The kitchen is well stocked and she adds so many extra touches that make you feel right at home. The house is beautifully decorated and cozy. The backyard is the best part hands down (including the outdoor shower!). Most days, we were the only people on the beach as far as the eye could see...we could let the doggie run around without her leash all day! The "beach closet" has chairs, beach games, board games, etc. for entertainment. Wonderful experience, wish we had stayed longer!
The Beach Cottage is conveniently located on Hwy A1A between Sebastian Inlet and the center of Old Melbourne Beach. Absolutely pristine virtually private beaches where you can spend the days fishing, swimming, and relaxing. The cottage is located directly on the ocean so enjoying your morning coffee and watching the sunrise is a highlight. If your interest include shopping and museums Melbourne has quite a few to offer and Sebastian Inlet has a treasure and fishing museum. There are many wild life refuges and sanctuaries to enjoy on bike, kayak or walking. Vero Beach is a short ride down the coastal highway where you can enjoy shopping, fine dining, and several spas. If the large resort parks are your interest Disney and Orlando are a short ride across the beach line. In 90 minutes you can be in the heart of Orlando. The Cape and SPACE are located about 45 minutes north. For the fisher person the area provides world class surf fishing and there are several charter services available for river and ocean fishing. This truly is a slice of Paradise!
