Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday estate in Florida Central Atlantic Coast - Paradise Found

Private beach home, 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, pool, sleeps 12

The perfect oceanfront retreat, overlooking endless blue waters, this casually elegant Mediterranean-inspired estate provides all the elements desired for a relaxing vacation and entertaining. Setting is ideal for a large extended family. Lush tropical greenery surrounds the various outdoor settings, featuring an enclosed courtyard-style coral-stone patio encompassing a sun-splashed pool. This area also include ample seating, loungers, barbecue area and dining table. Another lanai with partial shade extends along the eastern length of the house, capturing the oceanfront view, all the more dramatic from yet another deck on the roof, accessed by a spiral staircase. The sands stretch open from the low dunes, providing easy access via a wooden dune crossover for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, fishing and relaxing on the secluded, private beach. There is an outside hot and cold shower available for rinsing off.

Ocean views fill the bright open layout of this spacious residence totaling 5,200 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 4½ baths. Warm terracotta tile floors appoint both living levels. Pillared archways lead from the foyer into the airy living room with charming tongue-and-groove vaulted ceiling and French doors along the oceanfront patio. The double-sided coral-stone fireplace and adjacent wet bar are shared by the large dining room, also opening to the oceanfront patio. The beautiful dine-in gourmet kitchen includes a breakfast nook, tumbled marble counters, a Thermador gas range and double ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Viking wine cooler, 2 Bosch dishwashers, and 2 LG microwave ovens.

Opening its doors to the oceanfront patio, the comfortable master suite with queen sized bed and 32' flat screen HDTV features a walk-through wardrobe room and luxurious bath with jetted tub and separate steam shower. Served by another full bathroom, a sitting room opens to the pool. Adjacent to the sitting room, a library filled with books and a desk are ready for a lazy day. Wireless internet is available throughout the property - including on the decks and poolside.

The lower level allows you to have easy access to the grassy yard and dune crossover. Here lies the spacious entertainment room, with surround sound projection TV. Another double-sided coral-stone fireplace is shared by the adjacent bedroom that has a queen sized bed and 32' TV. Three additional bedrooms are also on this level, two of which include queen beds and one bedroom with two full sized beds. There are also two full bathrooms on this level.

Excellent location. Attentive hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely beach to stay on in Vero. Just houses makes for a beach that is not crowded. Close to downtown for restaurants and shops but not too close to have the crowds. Good location in Florida. Near Port Canaveral, Orlando, Tampa. Metal detecting, fossil hunting, looking for sea glass, watching rocket launches, Wellington horse shows, gator air boats, manatees, art shows. Great visit! R & J.

Paradise Found Indeed!!

  • 5 of 5

Three generation ranging from 8yrs.-62yrs celebrated the holidays and love of family in this breathtaking location. The house and beach exceeded our dreams with miles of beach to walk and play on, gorgeous views, and more than adequate space for the 9 of us. The home is as lovely as the pictures represent decorated comfortably with a beachy flair that makes it very inviting. Well appointed, we had everything we needed. Liz and Brian could not have been more accommodating and available to us should we need anything. It was a dream realized to have the entire family with us in our favorite setting...Vero Beach. Thanks so very much, Brian ,Liz, Zach and Mocha for sharing your beautiful home with us!!! We wish you a very happy and healthy 2016!

Great Start-Terrible End

  • 2 of 5

1 family vacation, 1 wedding, 7 nights and too many good times to remember. This trip started off great. The home is beautiful with a gourgeous view. Plenty of room for all guests in all the bedrooms. I would take this trip again, but not to this house. The AC ran nonstop and could not keep the house comfortable during the hot days. The septic clogged and could not be used on the lower level for a period of time. Now one might think, well these are some normal issues, I agree, but when the owner puts the cost back on the renters, I have an issue. I was told to us that the septic was from something we must have put into the system and I assure you we did not. Oh, and the AC running non-stop, the owners went ahead and took that "extra" utility cost out of our security deposit. I was unaware that I needed to pay the utilities for a vacation home. Too bad it ended this way.

Owner's Response: Congrats again on your wedding. Glad you enjoyed the home, but let me explain to you again this issues you had, and why we had to keep a small portion of your deposit (the 1st time we have ever had to keep any part of a security deposit). The septic clogged in the middle of your stay (despite notices in every bathroom that this is a septic, and only TP is allowed). Despite the issue, 3 bathrooms were always available and fully useable on the day the plumber was fixing the clog, and then all 5 bathrooms were fully operational after that day and for the remainder of your stay. The AC was running non-stop because the multiple French doors were left open after repeated reminders to shut them to allow the AC to better cool the house. It states in the rental agreement that tenants are responsible for excessive electric usage, and you used 60% more electric than any other tenant. There were other reasons (that I explained to you in our emails) such as trash in the shrubs, around the pool, blood around the pool and on the walkway, ruined towels – these thing also necessitated the deposit deduction. I’m sorry that the small amount deducted from your deposit is overshadowing your lovely vacation and wedding. We wish you the best. Brian & Liz

Three generation fun!

Our family of 10 ranging from 13-76 recently stayed in Liz and Brian's home. From the initial tour to the final goodbyes, we appreciated their hospitality and sharing of their beautiful home! The kitchen had lots of items provided which was handy as well as a plenty of beach items for our use. Thank you for your help in making our week an enjoyable time! 😎
