About Maria Arroyave

I fell in love with Vero Beach in the 1990’s, when I brought my two young boys here from Fort Lauderdale to learn surfing. I liked Vero’s barrier island so much that I sold my medical practice and moved here. Now that the boys are grown up and on their own I love sharing the magic of my Surf Lane home with those who appreciate this very unique part of Florida as much as I.

My early years were spent in an American-staffed International school, followed by medical school, in Colombia. Though my parents were of modest means they managed to make sure all six of us were at least bilingual by graduation. After Residency in the Panama Canal Zone U.S. Army Hospital I completed my Pediatrics training in Orlando, then practiced Pediatrics for the better part of two decades in south Florida.

I take personal pride in hosting guests at Surf Lane, and enjoy doing everything I can to make their vacations memorably wonderful.

Maria Arroyave purchased this house in 2004

Why Maria Arroyave chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

Vero Beach’s barrier island, between the placid Indian River lagoon (inter coastal waterway) and miles of fine sandy beaches on the Atlantic ocean, is very unlike most other parts of Florida – little traffic most of the year, tasteful and carefully planned commercial development (two story limit except for two grandfathered 9 story buildings), tranquil neighborhoods, and almost no souvenir or t-shirt shops. The beach a hundred steps from my Surf Lane home is near a lifeguard station where more than two dozen bathers may only happen during Spring Break.

What makes this house unique

My Surf Lane vacation home is at the end of a cul-de-sac in a tranquil neighborhood, one home from the ocean. It is close enough to highway A1A to be convenient, but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The location affords instant private beach access, yet is shielded from constant wind and sea spray, and rents at more economical rates than ocean front homes.

The Best Vacation EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent two weeks at this home this past summer. It was the most fun and relaxing vacaton we have ever had. The house is located in Vero Beach literally steps away from the beach. There are many nearby grocery stores, malls, outlet stores etc. The pictures shown on this website DO NOT do the house justice. This home is even more BEAUTIFUL in person. This house is stunning from the inside and out with a great pool, landscaping and beautiful art pieces--many painted by Maria's mom. The house was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It was extremely comforting to know that the house is Category 4 hurricane proof! The owners, Bob and Maria are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They were extremely knowledgable and hospitable. It was a pleasure meeting them and some of their family members. Although there was plenty to do at the house (i.e. bikes, kayaks, boat trips etc.) there are so many near by activities you can do as well. Bob took us on a boat trip one day and the kids were able to fish and swim, they had the best time. We were also able to do many day trips such as Sea Word, Universal, Andretti thrill park etc. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone who wants to have a fun and relaxing vacation! We hope to one day be able to stay at this home again. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality and the great memories!

Tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

Maria,

We had a wonderful time spending the week in your beautiful home! There were 9'of us, my two adult daughters with their husbands, my son, my husband ,and also my two middle school aged daughters . There was plenty of room for all of us. We spent a lot of time around the pool and walked to the beach which was a few steps down the path .The beach towels, umbrella, chairs, accessories , everything we needed was there. Very quiet neighborhood. The beds were very comfortable. We prepared meals and found plenty of plates, utensils, and cookware. We also found several wonderful restaurants in the area. We drove to Disney and Universal a couple of days. We really had a perfect week! Any questions we had were promptly answered! Thanks for being so friendly and for making our YOLO trip so wonderful !

Wonderful location to relax in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this lovely home in Vero Beach. Our family (3 early 20-somethings included) and for a bit 3 other adults all enjoyed the house immensely. The layout is perfect to allow those early risers or night owls to be in one part of the house while others slept. The pool area can't be beat. It is totally secluded and peaceful. The house is a very short walk down a private path to the ocean and lovely near-empty beach. Vero Beach has good restaurants and shops, but it not at all crazy or loud. One or two house issues were taken care of immediately by the homeowner (thanks, Maria!). I would gladly return!

First time renters get spoiled forever

  • 5 of 5

Never having rented a vacation property, we were concerned about perception vs. reality. No need to worry here. Maria Arroyave is a gracious, and truthful owner. When you stay in her home, you can tell someone lives there--that it's not just an income producing property.

Among its charms are a wonderful layout, doors opening onto the pool from all parts of the house, and a paved 300' walk to the most beautiful beach you can imagine.

The house has most every creature comfort one could want, and the neighborhood is peaceful and private.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to bring our children together for a week of relaxation and this lovely house did not disappoint! It's a beautiful home on a secluded street and only a short drive or beach walk to town. The kitchen is well appointed and very functional. The layout of the house was perfect with a stunning courtyard and sitting area separating the living space from the bedrooms to keep the night owls and early birds from disturbing anyone who was sleeping. We spent most of our time by the pool - you couldn't ask for a more relaxing place! Surrounded by meticulously maintained gardens, the pool area was beautiful and private with plenty of chairs, lounges, tables, and a new grill. A short path leads to the beach where we enjoyed flying kites, body boarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, searching for shells and building sandcastles. We frequent Vero Beach and have rented many houses/condos over the years and this was our favorite - we will return! Thank you to Maria for being so easy to work with and accommodating :)
