About the property

5BR, 3BA with spectacular ocean views

Ocean views from every bedroom, private beach access, home is steps from the sand and sea. You will love the experience that awaits in this charming, newly updated beach bungalow with spacious yard and wrap around porch. It is a resort experience, without the crowds. With ocean kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, surf boards provided, the fun is endless. This much favored location is just south of Vero's charming downtown area, hosting unique resorts, fine boutiques and restaurants. Our home flows seamlessly to the spectacular views that await in each room. The kitchen has been newly renovated with a custom built kitchen reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright. But the best feature-leading to the remarkable accreting stretches of white, sandy beaches is a dune walkover passing through a natural habitat of sea oats and sea dunes.

This retreat is truly the antidote to urbanization.

About David carter

My husband and I have lived in Vero Beach essentially our whole lives. We raised our family in two different houses on the property next door. We purchased this house to preserve its character and to share one of the best beach experiences in the world with people who are lucky enough to come to Vero Beach.

David carter purchased this house in 2013

Why David carter chose Vero Beach

Located near the Point of Vero's 'Cove,' this property sits on over an acre and a half overlooking one of the best beaches in Florida. When originally built in the 1950's, it was a small beach cottage surrounded by woods and sea. Recently completely renovated with a second story added, the house maintains a cottage like feel with plenty of room and all the modern amenities.

What makes this house unique

Based upon the unique location, the surrounding estate homes do nothing to impair panoramic ocean views from nearly every room. The size of the property which is located at the end of a high end gated single street subdivision, will give you all the privacy you could want. Your closest neighbor will be the friendly owners right next door, but still more than 50 yards away.

Amazing beach house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in August 2017 in this house. Location is everything! Access to the beach is in the backyard; the sandy beach is very quiet as only available to local residents.

Home is very welcoming, furbished with all amenities you may think of, and beach toys are also available. Kayaking in the ocean was fantastic!

Outstanding restaurants are in close reach. You have to try "the Tides"; not cheap but the best seafood we had since a long time. On the casual side, South Beach pizzeria makes nice and fine crust pizzas; downtown we liked the mood and the food at Southern Social Kitchen & Bar.

The owners were responsive to our emails. Julia and David, thanks for sharing your house.

Exceptionally nice location , beach and house

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great views, great location - very quiet, private setting - the neighbours' houses are actually close by but you do not get the feeling at all...

House: excellent overall condition ; welcoming - homely, clean, user friendly ; great amenities, in good working condition yet not immaculate to the point you're afraid to use ...

(Note : limited to 6 seating spaces around dining table so if slightly larger group, need to split or stand)

patio is great and a natural magnet for the group to congregate

Beach : immaculate, private and just right there for you to enjoy

Overall we were delighted and would definitely recommend / return

David the owner was super responsive and accommodating

Exactly as pictured, better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 vacationed here in July. First time to Vero Beach and this home. I can't say enough good things about David and his property. Beautiful home, beautiful beach. And the kitchen is spectacular! We especially appreciated the gas grill, the huge porch, comfy furniture, and the beach toys (paddle boards, kayak, etc.) provided. A delightful stay.

Beautiful house, breath taking Ocean Views and total Privacy!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful spacious house, breath taking Ocean Views and total Privacy you have found it!

Owners are lovely and you do not feel like you are stepping on egg shells in someone else's house. 5 beautiful bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, huge kitchen and the coolest wrap around deck overlooking the ocean. The beach is super clean and wide. Very private. The owners even provide paddle boards, chairs, umbrellas and kayak. Tons of beach towels and replacement sheets. Bring your food and you will never need to leave during your stay! 5 STAR is an understatement! A MUST!!!!

It was an amazing housel! Our family really enjoyed the spectacular setting, location and house layout. It was so relaxing -- we didn't leave the house to take advantage of the nearby restaurants. The breezes from the beach kept us cool and we loved the porch! The beach toys were a big hit with our teenagers. It was great to have a private beach and private setting. We already are talking about going again!

Located east of A1A, 2 miles South of 17th Street Bridge. From A1A go East on Gracewood Lane. Take right off cul-de-sac. Driveway is on the left when you reach the ocean. Outstanding fishing and diving in the Cove, renowned for great summer tarpon runs and giant lobster.
