Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Florida Central Atlantic Coast - Tropical Breeze Vero Beach FL

4 Bedroom 2 Bath - Heated Pool with Kayak and Bikes

Tropical breezes await you in this central Florida Treasure Coast home. Minutes from the beach, river, shopping, fishing, boating, or just lounging in your own pool. Fully equipped kitchen, jacuzzi bath, open floor plan for entertaining, quiet spots for relaxation, and sleeps 10. Internet and office available for workaholics.

One story ranch style home greets you with a large front porch with ample seating and mild breezy evenings after a long day at the beach. The sounds of the waterfall that flows to a small pond filled with fish will sooth your worries away before entering the home.

Entering the home will take you away to a tropical paradise with the open floor plan overlooking a lush tropical landscape and pool for all to enjoy.

Mom, Dad or anyone wanting peace and quiet will find spaces of tranquility in and out of the house. Professionally designed by a Feng Shui consultant for harmonious flow. Take time out for meditation near the pond, read on the daybed, relax in the jacuzzi located in the master bath, swing your worries away on the front porch or pool hammocks, have fun near the pool deck with an abundance of seating and hammock for star gazing, so many spots to mention.

The living room has a 60' flat screen smart TV over the fireplace. Watch a sports game, Cable, Netflix, karaoke, PlayStation fun, movies, and music - Entertainment galore!

Home is wired for ethernet connections in every room, wireless connection, complete with a wireless printer/scanner/fax for those that feel the need to bring work along or needing to print.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave (also convection oven), dishwasher, stove, refrigerator w/ ice maker, toaster oven, water cooler w/ small fridge on bottom, and many utensils for those that love to cook or bake! Open to the dining, living and pool deck.

Master Bedroom has a king size bed with a 32' flat screen TV and DVD player. A wireless speaker is located here for sound throughout the house. Take a trip to the WILD side in this jungle inspired room.

Soak your worries away and sooth your muscles in the Jacuzzi located in the master bath, one of my favorite rooms! Custom made Corian countertops and shower stall with European fixtures and glass sink. Feel the need to iron your clothes? No problem, with the built in iron work station. High Efficiency (HE) washer and dryer is located within reach of the iron station.

Feeling a little down? You will love the Change Your Life bedroom, also called the creative section of the house. Here you will find yellow and blue fish making their way through the big blue sea and bedding that will melt your worries away. This room is furnished with a queen size sleep number bed that can be adjusted on each side according to your own comfort. A 32' Smart TV, DVD, and VHS player is setup in this room, including a few children's movies in the house. There are also children's books, coloring books, crayons, etc here for childlike fun!

Aloha in the Hawaiian inspired bedroom decorated with Hawaiian artist Dean Miller bedding. A painted doorway takes your thoughts to a place of tranquility overlooking a colorful hammock and sailboat off in the distance. Endless Summers will be had along with visions of surfing in this bedroom. Full size bed with a 32' Smart TV and DVD player.

The pool is perfect for cooling off and/or playing pool games. There are jets that help ease away aches and pains in your back. The open pool makes for great star gazing at night and sunbathing during the day. There are seating areas with umbrellas for those that want to enjoy the outdoors without getting too much sun. The pool is heated by a heat pump and solar panels for those cool evenings. For those with small children, a pool fence can be installed before your arrival. A hammock is available on both the front porch and pool deck. We love swinging in the hammock in the evening after a hot day and have actually seen shooting stars at night.

There are two small fire pits on the property for those romantic or cooler evenings. A propane grill is available with lots of fun for the grill master in the family all while overlooking the pool.

Games and books can be found in the house including yard games. For those that like to play video games, there is a PlayStation 3 with a few games including karaoke for fun family time. (There are various game and movie rental facilities in the area.) We do offer Netflix and Hulu.

A two seat Old Towne river kayak with life preservers and paddles is available for your use along with two bikes. (Bring life preserver for small children.) If you would like to ocean kayak or need additional kayaks there are rental companies that will take you out on guided tours. Highly recommended!

Skydive Sebastian is about 6 miles north of us. I've been told on a clear day you can see both the east and west coast of Florida. We have family that visit us just to skydive, I'm on to them!

Smoking is not allowed in the house or on the front porch. Up to two pets are allowed with a restriction of breed, please ask. There is an additional fee of $50 per pet plus a $100 pet deposit.

This fee is not included in the daily, weekly or monthly rates and would need to be paid separately.

Visit Vero Beach or Sebastain to make memories, they last a lifetime! We sure have enjoyed this little piece of heaven we call home! And we know you will too!

About Kandi Phillips

David was born and raised in Vero Beach and Kandi was raised in Sebastian. We met on the dance floor (we love to dance) and married in Hawaii, hence the inspiration for the Hawaiian room. We love to travel, kayak, bike, golf, watch football, cook, garden, renovate homes, and enjoy life! Growing up near the east coast of Florida has given us both a true appreciation of the beautiful Indian River Estuary, beach and life in the sun. We have traveled up and down the coasts of Florida creating wonderful memories with the family. You will truly enjoy your time at Tropical Breeze, we sure have!

Kandi Phillips purchased this house in 1992

Why Kandi Phillips chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

The property was my own family's home. I purchased the home from my parents and raised two children. My husband and I have done renovations to the home bringing it up to code (over code as my husband is an engineer) making the home a space of tranquility, our own getaway from work and stress. We took on a contract out of state so now we are sharing it with others while we can also come back 4-6 months out of the year to visit our getaway. We have family that lives in the area available for any needs.

What makes this house unique

I've personally added special touches to the home from a Feng Shui perspective, you may not even notice but you will feel the warmth and peace throughout the space. While we designed the open floor plan to bring the family together, those cooking can also participate in the conversations or games. Even though there could be lots of activity in one area of the home, you will also find spaces to unwind or take time with self.

We helped form the neighborhood watch program and know all of our neighbors. You will feel safe in our friendly neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very good communication with Kandi. We had a wonderful experience, the house was as described, in very good condition, we had a really nice experience, we did had a problem with the water and Kandi rapidly offered a solution, we had the chance to meet her and she is a very nice sweet person, she even offered his family toys for our kids. We had marvelous BBQ at the patio while the kids were enjoying the swimming pool. Our room was so nicely decorated that we took few pictures to copy at home! You see Kandi's family on each portion of the house, every detail speaks for them, a warm, family house, quite different from those houses built for rental with no soul, this has a strong personality, a beautiful one. Thank you Kandi for allowing my family share your house, we had a great experience.

Becoming like a second home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, fully stocked home. Just about anything you can ask for is at the house from kitchenware to pool toys. Immaculately clean and well maintained inside and out. Pool is great and neighbors are quiet (actually pretty invisible for the most part)

Great location, very short drive to the local beaches (Wabasso is our local fave), shopping and activities. Eat at the Riverside Cafe (under the causeway with outdoor dining on the water) at least once and hit up Kilwins in Vero for sugary snacks.

Capt Hirams up the road in Sebastian does all kinds of boat trips (manatee watching, fishing, etc).

We plan to be back in 2016.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

Tropical Breeze is a lovely vacation home that is very clean and well appointed.

The backyard is very private, with lots of seating around the solar heated pool.

The owner was always available to answer any questions.

We would definitely rent this home again.

Escape from Work

  • 5 of 5

We had a outstanding time on vacation. The house was very cozy and felt like we were at home. With the gloomy weather we had the pool came in very handy. Everything you need is at hand in the house. Kandi has done a great job stocking the house. The furniture was very comfortable and relaxing. Would recommend it to everyone.

Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect location wise for our stay. This was for the father/son golf tournament and the golf course was literally just down the street, so very convenient for the guys. We also found cool places in Vero to go and it started with the information that Kandi sent which we greatly appreciated. We visited a few bars, eateries and antique shops. The best place was The Garage - with fabulous pizza and a variety of craft beers which my guy loves. The house itself met our needs as far as a large central living room/dining room for all of us to gather together. We didn't really utilize the outside pool area but that was more due to weather. The only negative (and this is personal opinion only) is there are too many 'personal' photo's and decorations. It was mildly uncomfortable as we felt like we had stepped into someone else's house while they were away. But again, personal opinion only. The house was very clean and as stated met our needs. There was also a week delay of returning my security deposit - after asking about it, I was told the cleaning crew did not go in timely (?). But all in all it was a great house in regards to meeting our needs for the golf weekend.

Owner's Response: The home is surrounded by three golf courses, glad this worked out for your group. Growing up in the area along with research I've put together a list with different interests in mind. This is where our children grew up and we do gather 3-4 times a year. Having many guests stay in the home, including many from around the world, this is the first time someone has a negative about the photos. In fact, we have heard the opposite, they love seeing the family that owns the property. We have stayed in vacation rentals for over 20 years and have always enjoyed the homes with a personal touch rather than cold and harsh, without a story. You forgot to mention that we gave you a late check per your request and we obliged by rescheduling cleaning at the last minute. The rental agreement, of which you signed, clearly states 3-5 business days for refund, you left 8/16, refund was done 8/23, within the time limit. I waited two days for a response regarding "who"' to refund due to payments were made between two different people, clearly I was making an effort to refund the deposit. We have always made every effort to refund deposits within 3 days however we also must wait for inspection of home, hence the 3-5 business day agreement. I was honest and made you aware of the timing for refund of deposit from the day you left, to post a question mark about the cleaning schedule indicates you did not believe me. In the future, I would suggest speaking directly with the owner instead of making assumptions and posting them or blasting them to the public. You can look through our reviews to find that we strive to accommodate guests by giving them a "home away from home" and being honest with top notch communication, which is key.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the Tropical Breeze home. There was plenty of room for our family with 4 small children to move around and play. The yard was beautiful and relaxing, and there were so many extra fun things (like feeding the fish!) The property was very clean when we arrived and everything was as it had been described.
