About Patricia Tome, Anthony Frank

We live in Weston, 20 miles north of Miami and visit our cottage in Vero Beach regularly. We love so much the casual living and friendly atmosphere of the area. My husband is originally from Pittsburgh and I' m from Caracas/Venezuela. We have been married for 3 years and each have adult children living in different parts of America.

Patricia Tome, Anthony Frank purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Patricia Tome, Anthony Frank chose Florida

We went to visit friends, and walked with them to the turquoise beach, through the little roads, surrounded by trees and vegetation. We met so many nice people, in the Summerplace area. It has been so pleasant. We bike, we walk, we play tennis, we swim. But what made our decision to buy was definitely seeing this house .... a beautiful cottage, just steps from the water.

What makes this cottage unique

This house was 'love at first sight'; the architecture, the space, the view, the floors, the roof, the proximity to the beach, the road .... and the neighbors.

Yes, for us, this house is a real hidden gem.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Patricia,

I wanted to take some time to tell you that we had a wonderful time in

your house in Vero Beach. Your house is gorgeous, I was a little worried

with the stairs and my two kids but we had no problems whatsoever. Beach

is amazing, not crowded and just steps from the house, my kids had a blast

with the surf boards. Great choice for just relaxing and share a good

time with the family. Definitely in my top choices to go back to Florida.

I have just one request...a blackout for the master bedroom!! : )

Thanks for everything

average rating of 5.0 based on 21 reviews

Perfect location for beach lovers!

  • 5 of 5

Patricia and Anthony's beach cottage is all they say it is! It is elegant, comfortable, and absolutely the best location ever for those who love to go to the beach to swim, or just walk along the beach in the early morning or evening, or anytime at all since the cottage is just minutes away on foot. The fact that we could just go and come to the beach so easily made it super convenient when some of us wanted to stay and some of us wanted to head back to the house. The house itself is lovely with all of the amenities needed to make us feel very much at home. Thank you, Patricia and Anthony! We would love to go back someday!

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there the 4Th of July week with our 2 dogs. Had a wonderful time. Like it says, the beach is only steps away, very nice and very private. We cooked and grilled a lot of our own meals. The Ocean Grill in Vero Beach was very picturesque and great food. One of our dogs needed medical care and to our surprise a veterinarian lives across the street and helped us out. Our doggie is now fine. Very friendly area. The place was nice and clean and had everything we needed even to go to the beach. It was a great choice.

We had a wonderful three months. Summerplace is a welcoming, old fashioned neighborhood where people meet on the beach, or dog walking and make a genuine neighborhood of 50% year round residents and 50% renters.

This home is a beautiful place that is filled with sunlight. The master and main living / kitchen area is on the second floor which creates a beautiful, open, private escape. It was nicely furnished and completely uncluttered. The towels and linens were first class, and each bed had a great mattress.

The owners will stay in touch as much as you need or want, and they will give you privacy if you don't need them.

This was the best rental experience we have had in five years renting in Vero.

Owner's Response: Hi Katherine, hi Mike, thank you, thank you!!! It was nice to reed this comments from you, but more so, to know that you were very pleased with your 3 month in our cottage of Sandpiper. Sommerplace is a very special place, and with friends and family, even more. I hope you'll enjoy your new grand-kid, and the engagement and wedding of your son, in the near future. Take care and hope to hear from you. Best regards Patricia & Tony

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is in a great location and is decorated to be really fun to stay in and get into the mood of a beach side vacation. In fact, the photos don't do it justice. It's a real key west style three story place. Tony is also a great and responsive host.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Patricia and Tony have a BEAUTIFUL home and are very welcoming. This vacation was the most relaxing and enjoyable we could have ever dreamed of. Our kids loved the open floor plan! Our daily walk to the beach and the convenience of the home was more than we could ask for. Next best thing would be to live here. We will DEFINITELY be back!!!! Thank you Patricia and Tony.
