Our charming oceanfront beach cottage is a totally private retreat. This huge beachfront tropical lot is tucked away on a prime surfing & fishing spot on pristine South Melbourne Beach. Only 1.5 miles north of the Sebastian Inlet National Park.

This totally private retreat is located inside Archie Car Wildlife Preserve and on the Great Florida Birding Trail. Amazing coastal hammock property with turtles nesting right on the beach.

This is a laid back almost rural community that is totally focused on the ocean! One of the best fishing destinations in the entire US. 1.5 miles North of world re-knowned surfing destination, Sebastian Inlet. Great restaurants within a short drive north to quaint Historic Downtown Melbourne or eclectic shopping just south in Vero Beach. Pure serenity awaits!

About owner/property manager

We fell in love with Melbourne Beach thanks to Rafael's passion for surfing. Escaping the hustle of Miami, the serenity of a small surfer town was right up our alley. After marrying and starting a family, we still loved coming to stay in Melbourne Beach. It was so often, we decided to make it our second home. We bought the cottage, made it our own and look forward to making lots of memories here for our family.

Wonderful beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with your home and new it would be the perfect spot for our small beach wedding. :) Everything was perfect. The beds were comfy.. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed. The fire pit was perfect. The walkway down to the beach was amazing for our wedding. I can't thank you enough and we hope to make an annual trip each year on our anniversary. All of our guest thought it was amazing as well. Thanks again for providing such a lovely oceanfront home. :)

Perfect Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best Christmas in a long time! The house was great and NOTHING beats being able to walk right down to the beach from your backyard. That is by far the best feature and we will definitely be back. The owner was very responsive and accommodating and I recommend this property to anyone.

Fun weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were in town early and really wanted to get access to the house so the owner allowed us to get in early (paid of course) which gave just a couple of us a great time before the rest if the family arrived! The entire famity had a great time and loved that the beach was right there and we could sit outside and hear the waves crash on the shore! And loved inside the house as well, there were toys for the 2 year old that kept him entertained the entire time as well as a ring toss game the big Kids loved. The beach was beautiful and mostly was just us out there, at one point there were quite a few other but nothing like any other beaches we have been to, of course in the morning there are always a couple surfers out.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have a very large family, therefore, vacations are usually a little chaotic. However, we stayed in Casa Playa for the week of the Fourth of July and can honestly say that it's been the most relaxing vacation we've taken.

Casa Playa had countless of activities to do- from swimming in the beautiful blue water, to playing board games and making s'mores- this house truly has something for everyone. We really enjoyed its appearance and how clean it was, and although we got there a few hours earlier than anticipated, the housekeeper was nothing but kind and helpful as she efficiently cleaned everything up for us. The house was truly magical, the owners supplied it with everything from board games and toys for the little ones, to inflatable tubes and paddle boards for the teens and adults. We were even surprised to see sunscreen, bug spray, and nail polish for touch-ups in case anyone needed them. The house had a beautiful and spacious kitchen stocked with flatware, dishes and even some earthenware, plus, the bedrooms were large enough for our whole family of eight. We were also happy to find the WIFI and were able to use our electronic devices- though, this was something we rarely did, since there was so much being offered that our laptops were only used for work purposes and our phones for the occasional call.

Furthermore, the beach was truly incredible. The sand was a mixture of ivory and porcelain white, the water was a beautiful turquoise color, and although the waves were sometimes rough, the ocean was tranquil in the mornings. Excluding swimming and relaxing in the water with the floaters provided by the owners, we also enjoyed fishing for three of the five days we spent there. The fishing was so great that we caught several fish all three days, and the pleasure of eating fresh fish was incredibly satisfying. Some of us were also lucky enough to see dolphins jumping in the water at sunset, and to experience the beauty and tranquility of the sea when the sun rose.

Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone looking for some time away from the busy city lights and that wants to enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer. The kind owners made the experience a lot better, answering every question we had and equipping the house with things for the whole family. Casa Playa was a vacation spot worth remembering for sure.

Very comfortable and right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at Casa Playa for spring break. Everything worked and the house was very clean, and if we had any questions, they were answered right away - it was amazing. Every room has a ceiling fan - we liked that. The house is very pleasant and beach-cottage-cozy. The location of the house is perfect, and the proximity to the surf shop was great - we rented bikes, boards, and had surf lessons. Casa Playa is a couple of miles down the road from Sebastian Inlet State Park: there is a lot of wildlife, the area is dark and quiet at night, with the sky full of stars - we really liked how peaceful it was. The owner is great to work with, I would definitely book this place again!
