About Joanna Holbrooke

Having both grown up in Fort Lauderdale , enjoying Florida's beautiful beaches and Orlando's theme parks has always been a way of life for us. After moving to New York for business in our late -thirties (2011) it didnt take long for us to miss Florida and decide to invest in this wonderful vacation home!

We chose this area for its beautiful uncrowded beach and because despite being so relaxing there is also so much to do. We are also avid dog lovers and appreciate that there is a dog friendly beach and park just blocks away.

We look forward to one day retiring in our wonderful beach house. In the meantime, we are excited to be taking our vacations there and sharing it with guests!

Troy and Joanna H.

Joanna Holbrooke purchased this house in 2013

Why Joanna Holbrooke chose Indian Harbour Beach

We chose this home clearly for its proximity to the beach! We also fell in love with how quiet and friendly the neighborhood is.....our neighbors are the best! We wanted a home with ample bedroom space to accommodate family and friends as well as our dogs.

Great open space and lots of room for the family!!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for my family for the week we stayed. Plenty of space and room to spread out. Close to all our favorite restaurants and our Florida family. Felt like being at our own house. We will be staying here again and recommend it to our friends and family. Thanks for having us.

Good location with easy access to surrounding areas.

  • 5 of 5

Joanna was very easy to work with while making arrangements for our family vacation. She responded in a very timely manner and gave us good information and directions concerning the area where we were staying. Most importantly, when we encountered a small problem she was very attentive and helped us resolve it immediately. The home was clean and comfortable and the beach was lovely to walk. If we return to the area we would definitely stay there again.

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Well I would like to give this wonderful vacation rental a poor review so I won't have any competition for next year, but I can't. I have been traveling to this area twice a year for theast 16 years for work and have rented many rentals below and above this place in terms of cost and I can say none are as fully prepared for a families stay/vacation as this one.

It is clean (most important to me!), well set up without clutter of personal items that make you feel as though your staying in someone's house but feels comfortable and homie so you can just kick back and relax. Absolutely wonderful neighborhood for younger kids... We enjoyed our evening bike rides with our 3 year old without heavy traffic and everyone is so polite and cautious with many other kids around in the neighborhood.

Knowing the area well I can tell you everything is perect proximity to them house.

All in all gives a perfect clean, comfortable at the cottage relaxed feeling you want with a perfect sized back yard to relax with the BBQ/dinner and & drink or play with the kids... Safe fully high fenced yard.

Perfect size with 4 useable bedrooms, not 2 with 2 that they call bedrooms... 4 fully functioning bedrooms or as Inused them 3 bedrooms and an awesome office, if you have to get work done.

Great living space for the family to be together or retreat to your room to relax and watch TV.

Honestly , can't say one bad thing !

Joanne is so easy to work with and so quick to respond to any questions or concerns you may have. It really takes away from any stress you may have about your trip and really adds to the overall enjoyment of the rental property.

Thanks for everything, can't wait till next time

This house has everything!

  • 5 of 5

This 4BR house had every possible thing you need or want. Clean. Comfortable. Tons of space. Supplies from bedding, towels, bikes, TP, shampoo, surf board, beach chairs........ The owner told

Me this summer a pool is being added. That would make this place as perfect as it could , being just a block off the beach. I would love to return here!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this rental was perfect. Working with the owner, Joanna, was such a breeze. She was responsive, super friendly, and a dog lover. The house was perfect. It's the kind of rental where you feel like you're staying at your own house. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with all the same cooking tools I use at home. There were great dog touches like toys, bowls, and shampoo. This rental was the epitome of little touches––things like qtips and body wash, beach towels and chairs. We had brought everything with us since we've never stayed in such a thoughtful rental. With a small beach only block away and a dog beach only a mile or less away, you feel like your own beach is around the corner. Highly recommend this spot.

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay and it felt like we were visiting with old friends, not a rental. We loved being so close to the dog beach and all our favorite places to eat. It was so awesome to find such a lovely home that allows dogs, as ours is part of the family and loves to travel as well. We will be back next summmer for a return trip. Thank you for providing all the little things that made your vacation home a rare find.

Indian Harbour Beach is a fun and friendly, relaxed and safe beachside island community on Florida's beautiful Space Coast. Located between Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral and Melbourne Beach/Sebastion Inlet, our warm-water beaches are great for sunrise walks and relaxing days and boast some of the best surfing, boating, and surf-fishing on the East Coast of the U.S.

The Indian River, just blocks away, is a great place to paddle board, boat, and check out local wildlife such as dolphins, manatees, birds etc.

Indian Harbour Beach and the nearby surronding areas have plenty of shopping, nightlife, and restaurants. Be sure and try SquidLips and Longdoggers, each only a five minute drive. A ten minute drive to Downtown Historic Melbourne has more shops, restaurants, Art Festivals and Bars. We love Matts Casbah and The Mansion. There is so much to do here with the beach, watersports, fishing, Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Piers, golf-courses and Disney/Orlando Parks all nearby.
