The Starfish House at Azure Estate: A charming beach house within a stunning luxury compound that includes 3 bedrooms with a garden & pool view, ocean view from the master bedroom, 2.5 bath, kitchen, living room, shared heated pool direct access to beach. (Private access bridge is 180 ft away from the house inside the estate).
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
Once again, the estate was set up perfectly, and we had a wonderful time with our family in the Starfish House. We love it here, and are already working on another return trip in 6 months. There is no place we would rather visit in the Southeast Gulf or Atlantic Coastlines. Thank you to our host and hostess that always go out of their way to make us feel at home!
This was simply a wonderful experience, I can't wait to stay here again. Perfect when needing a Disney and Beach fix.
We stayed at the Whale House for four nights. A 6-7 day minimum stay was required, but Valerie and Federico worked with us...which was awesome.
The home was huge, which was great for our group of 5. Kitchen was a bit small, but had everything we needed to prepare a meal. We were on vacation anyway so there was hardly any time spent in the kitchen.
Patio area was great for socializing and grilling. Easy access to the beach. Having a pool with the home was a must for us and the pool did not disappoint. Well maintained, deep and shallow areas, perfect temperature.
Valerie and Federico were excellent hosts. They responded to our texts/calls if we needed anything and let us come and go as we pleased. They provided with events going on in the area as well as recommendations for food or grocery shopping.
Nothing short of a five-star stay at the Whale House. Thx again, Valerie and Federico!
Our hosts came right over to greet us and gave us a tour while also giving us tips about the area. They responded quickly to our requests. Very nice couple.
We rented the Starfish house for my wife's birthday with another couple and their kids. It's a very large, open, bright 2-story house with lots of space and well maintained. The owners recently purchased it and appear to be continuing to update it. They were very nice and made sure we had everything we might need for our stay.
There's a nice patio right out of the living room with a BBQ and overhang under the second story porch in case it rains. The pool is right in front which the kids absolutely loved swimming in after they got tired of the beach. The beach is right past the pool and is breathtaking. It's rather private as the only public access is about a mile in either direction so we had it almost to ourselves.
Overall it was a fantastic experience and we would love to come back and stay again!
The Gull House was my reward for surviving Disney. What a perfect spot! It was our first expereince with Homeaway and it far exceeded our expectations. Valerie and Frederico are lovely hosts - attentive, welcoming and helpful. Their tips on where to eat, shop and visit made us feel like locals. The beach house is tastefully decorated and grounds were beautiful. The proximity to the ocean and privacy of the beach made the location extra special. Our family ( 3 kids under 10) felt very and home and didn't want to leave! Thanks for a terrific vacation!
