About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Be near the attractions but also away from the world with this Central Florida wilderness retreat.

Located 3 minutes from the King Center for Performing Arts, 10 minutes from the beach, 30 minutes from Kennedy Space Center and less than an hour from the Universal, Sea World and the Disney Theme parks, this 2000 Sq Ft home will let you appreciate the more relaxed pace of nature.

This one acre lot is attached to wooded acreage so there are always visits from local wildlife in the back yard. The bird pictures were taken from the sun room and the turtle picture from a stroll in the back yard.

The home features:

Master Bedroom with queen size bed.

Master Bathroom with garden tub

Second Bedroom with Florida theme and a queen size bed.

Kid's bedroom with a trundle bed set (1 or 2 beds) (stocked with toys and books for the kids)

Caribbean / Florida themed Living and Dining Room with a 50" HD TV

Spacious kitchen the whole family can cook together in without stepping on each other.

Sunroom with a seating area to watch the wildlife as you enjoy a morning cup of coffee

Chain link fence closes the property off from the road.

The living room has a HDTV with with a DVD player and full collection of moves for the whole family. (There is also a Wii gaming system with a number of games is available upon request)

The permanent beds in the home will hold 5-6 people. If you want to have more people stay in the home, you could set up an inflatable bed.

The sunroom is set up with a seating area to watch the birds and other wildlife that like to visit.

If you like to cook, feel free to pick some of the fresh herbs growing just out the back door.

Want to take off to the theme parks for a day and don't know what to do with your pet? I can arrange on-site pet sitting while you go out for the day.

About Michelle Murillo

I love to travel and meet people and think vacation homes are a fantastic way to do this, so I have turned my home into one as well!

By trade I am a writer and voice talent and on the side I am a pirate re-enactor portraying Mary Read.

Michelle Murillo purchased this house in 2007

Why Michelle Murillo chose Melbourne

I love this area. Not only is it near the beach and the theme parks, but it also lets you get away from all the hustle and bustle of those things when you want to. When you look out the back windows it seems like it's just you and nature out there and no one else. It's a fantastic place to relax and just be at peace with the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

***This message was left in the house guest book and in an e-mail by a visitor who traveled from Ca to Fl to watch the last night shuttle launch. One of the astronauts was their friend!***

Thank you so much. Your home was perfect for us and so much better than a hotel. My kids felt right at home. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us.

Cecilia and Christopher are showing there pirate coins to everyone today! If we are ever in Florida again, we'd love to stay in your home.

Michelle has a very comfortable, roomy and well-decorated home for rent. We enjoyed our one-month stay here. Loved the back deck overlooking a natural paradise. Close to many bars, restaurants and the beaches. Would highly recommend.
