The Gull House at Azure Estate: A Direct Oceanfront luxury beach cottage directly on Melbourne Beach's most secluded and private beaches. Heated pool is shared by 3 homes inside an exclusive and private family beach compound.
Azure Estate is a majestic 1.4-acre, family compound located in Melbourne Beach’s Golden Triangle, Brevard County’s most exclusive ocean-front residential location. Its grounds are impeccably kept and they overlook the deep blue waters of the Atlantic ocean and its white sandy beaches.
The property is walking and biking distance from Ocean Avenue’s restaurants, shops, beach bar, parks, library, post office, and gourmet super market. It is also 7 minutes away from Historic Downtown Melbourne and it’s exciting bar, restaurant and shopping scene, 13 minutes away from Melbourne International Airport, 1 hour 20 minutes hours from Orlando International Airport and 40 minutes away from Cape Canaveral. It is 1 hour 20 minutes from Disney World and many more amusement parks and all the exciting night life, attractions and shopping Orlando has to offer.
We have several options for your vacation, short, or longer term stay, all suited to meet your needs and as private as possible. There are 3 different homes in the property: The Gull House (Direct Oceanfront Charming Cottage); The Whale House (Stay Directly on the Beach); and the Starfish House (Stay at Majestic Oceanfront Estate). The pool is shared by all 3 homes. Each house has its private outdoors area for grilling, eating or relaxing. There are 2 direct access to the sand walkways in the property.
We were inspired by the surrounding blue waters, sky and tropical setting of our home to beautifully and uniquely decorate each house. Each house is fully furnished and has all essentials for you to enjoy your stay. A few examples are folding beach chairs with drink holders, designer beach towels, fun cooking essentials, etc.
A few activities we truly enjoy are: morning and evening strolls on the beach. (Each time we go out we see different ocean conditions, thus we have seen many wildlife like sea turtles, sardines, tarpon feeding, dolphins, etc.) We enjoy the gourmet supermarket 2 minutes away from the property and all the fun restaurants of the area like Djon’s Steak and Lobster, and bars like the Copperhead Tavern; grilling around the pool; reading a good book in front of the fireplace and simply staring at the night stars.
Many of the beach goers enjoy kite surfing, surfing, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, or simply sun tanning and relaxing. A few other fun activities in the area include a visit to Kennedy Space Center, Brevard Zoo, Airboat Rides, Antique shopping in the vast amount of stores along US 1 or Historic Downtown Melbourne, and any of the attractions in Orlando that are all about 1 hour 20 minutes away. In the mood for sports? The Spessard Holland Golf Course designed by Arnold Palmer Enterprises is only 7 minutes away from the property as well as a public tennis court in the park on Ocean Avenue
My Husband Federico and I lived in Miami for almost 20 years before moving to Melbourne Beach in 2014 to explore new opportunities. We both love all things related to the ocean and flying. We love scuba diving, boating, kayaking, and planes. We are passionate about our projects and are really looking forward to hosting you in our little corner of paradise.
Valerie B. purchased this house in 2014
First of all, I want to start off by saying how wonderful and accommodating Valerie and Fredrico were to my fiancé and I. They made sure all of our questions were answered before arriving. Once we arrived, we were blown away by the pictures online totally matching what we saw in person. Even better actually. Super clean, fresh smelling and what a breathtaking view. Once we arrived, they were there to say hello and give us a quick run down of the place. Totally what we needed for a few days and day of check out we didn't want to leave. Thank you both again. We will be back for longer next time. Xo
We loved our stay here. It is the perfext balance between serenity and fun! We had the beach practically to ourselves and the location is close enough to restaurants, stores, etc. The owners are very nice people and provided everything we could possibly need for us and our children. They even provided a nice bottle of wine! The amenities are superb! We loved spending the mornings on the beach, which is only steps away, and the afternoons in the pool. The cottage itself is very clean, smells nice and fresh, and is very inviting. We loved the added play area and toys for our our 3 year old! We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and didn't want to leave! It is worth every penny! We highly recommend this rental, and we will definitely be back!
I stayed here for a week with my wife and two small children and we loved it! The house is very clean, fresh and is well equipped, even with the small things like spices and toiletries. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we need and were very responsive. Valerie even went so far as to print an important but personal document for me and deliver it to the house while we were on the beach with the kids.
The property and location were excellent. We practically had the beach to ourselves and despite being late June there was enough of a breeze each day that the heat was not stifling. It is a short and quite walk down to the local markets and good restaurants. Larger attractions like the parks are just over an hours drive.
Again, the owners Valerie and Federico were outstanding. We have rented many houses in the past and these were by far the most attentive owners we have come across. The entire estate is under going updates and remodels and we would love to come back and see the changes.
The house was recently renovated and they did a great job. Our 7 month old loved cruising on the open wooden floors, and exploring the outside areas near the cottage, and the beach of course. The owners were warm and welcoming. Valerie was very responsive even before we arrived, and installed a crib, pack and play, and highchair, all in excellent condition. The outdoor areas are comfortable and offer plenty of shade. We would definitely return to this property.
Our family had a wonderful stay at the Gull house. It was so convenient to be right on the beach and also have a pool right next to the house. The beach was very private, we kept our windows open and slept to the wonderful ocean sounds. The house was equipped with everything we could possibly need. All we had to pick up was some food to cook when we wanted. The shops and grocery stores are in close proximity as well as some wonderful restaurants recommended by Valerie. The owners are very friendly and helpful and our vacation went off without a hitch. This was one of our best vacations thanks to this wonderful beach house and amazing owners. We will definitely be back!
We loved everything about Gull Cottage. On a scale from 1-10 ,it is a 10. We would love to return. The pool was wonderful,and location was superb! Maybe the only thing to consider would be to replace the wicker chairs with swivel club chairs,we loved the look of the wicker chairs,but watching TV was difficult,just too hard on the backside. Hot water could be turned up a bit,too.Overall, just a really lovely place. Thank you so very much.with kindest regards,kyle. P.S. I hope you receive this...I tried to respond yesterday to the other form you sent,and once again the other VRBO person came up when I hit reply. Very Strange.
