Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear John and Pam,

We had a wonderful week together at your lovely beach house. Thank you for taking such care and providing all of the amenities for our ease and enjoyment. Our grandchildren loved the surf and boogie boards and we all enjoyed the games and the beach, river and roasting marshmellows. It will always be a fond memory for my daughter and her children and two happy grandparents. We hope to see you again. The sea turtles and all of this place are beautiful.

The property worked out well for my family. We loved that we had access to the beach and river.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Beach & River Retreat. The house had plenty of room for everyone. We loved the large yard where the little ones could play without worrying about being to close to the road or the water. It was so quiet and peaceful. There were plenty of things to do inside when the weather wasn't so nice. The game tables and cabinet full of board games was great entertainment. The dining area had plenty of seating so that we could sit together for family meals. We found everything we needed for a perfect family vacation. The owners were friendly and helpful!

An amazing property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a family. So many different things to do;

everyone can be happy without those planned excursions that often

happen when different generations get together. We had 3 cars so

everyone was free to do what they wanted. The first night we went to

the beach after dark. We watched 5 Giant Sea Turtles lay eggs and

return to the sea. It was July16 and there was a rocket launch at

Cape Canaveral to send supplies to the space station. We stayed

there until they lifted off at 1245am. What a sight. Many lazy days

riding around the area, Melbourne Beach, Cocoa Beach, shopped at

Ron Jon's in Cocoa. Fished on the inlet side, used the kayak and

paddle board. My son, David, who spent many hours at Sebastion Inlet when

growing up in Hollywood, spent several hours there. It was restful and

just what we needed. Thanks so much, Pam.

family reunion stay in Melbourne

  • 5 of 5

Pam was wonderful to work with. We had an awesome time ! 8 of us got together and there was plenty of room at table to eat and play games. The tiki hutch at beach had boogie boards and lots of sand toys for 3 year old. Lots of room to get out of the sun. It was so convenient not to have to carry chairs, etc. down to beach. Path could use to be cut back a little, but other than that, perfect. Paddle boards and kayak gave everyone a totally different thing to do. I'd highly recommend it. House had everything you'd need and outside showers after beach was great. We also went to zoo for the zipline course, worth the money.

Great property, some updating needed

  • 4 of 5

The property is great with water on both sides, plenty of yard space, and the beach is mostly deserted. It was neat to be able to sit on the beach using the Tiki hut chairs at one time during the day and then to sit by the Indian River and enjoy the sunset.

The house was workable for both my wife and me and for our company. The master bedroom is nicely separated from the main area of the house so it is very workable for a number of people. The is plenty to do in the area, wildlife to see and tons of places to visit and places to walk.

The house and the Tiki hut areas need some updating. More screens are needed for the windows and work needs to be done by the Tiki hut as the beach shrubs are encroaching.

The Sebastian State Park and nearby McLarty Treasure museum made for cool spots to visit.

The managers/owners were very pleasant and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guest. We appreciate your feed back and want to provide the best experience for our guests. This review did not mention the brand new kitchen with a stone counter top and glass mosaic backsplash, new bedding and 4 flat screen TV's. Since this review was written, there is new furniture and a new bamboo roof on the Tiki Hut.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property. House looks much better then the pictures show. House was spacious and great for 9 of our family. We had a wonderful time. We swam, surfed, kayaked. We saw dolphins in the ocean on three of the days we were there and once on the river. Everyone loved the hammock. Games were enjoyed at night. A very relaxing vacation. The only downer was the noseeum bugs. Excellent property, exceptionally maintained and a retreat from reality.
