About Lorenz Hansen

I originally grew up in Ohio, but slowly moved South with family until we found Florida..and stayed!! My husband is from the UK, we settled in Palm Bay after he retired from the Royal Navy as a Warrant Officer in the Submarine Service some 11 years ago. We love it here, we enjoy trips to the beach, early morning walks there are wonderful. We live only a short distance from the vacation home, our policy is to meet guests on arrival, introduce ourselves and give you a tour of the property and relevant information about your stay. We will also meet you when you leave to collect keys etc. We do all the maintenance and cleaning ourselves and take pride in providing excellent service.

Lorenz Hansen purchased this house in 2013

Why Lorenz Hansen chose Palm Bay

We purchased this property with the intention of setting it up as a Holiday -Vacation Home. We took our time to find the right property at the right location and we believe we found it! With my husbands UK background we hope to get guests from Europe, but also from USA and Canada. For the winter months we would like to see 'Snowbirds' coming down to visit. Florida really has the best weather during the winter months...we hear of snow storms, people getting stuck in icey/wet conditions..just putting up with long cold winters...makes us appreciate living in Florida. So come on down ...see what we have to offer!!

What makes this house unique

When you walk into a home you want it to feel right.....that's what happened to us when we found this property...its quiet, comfortable, relaxing...the back porch and garden are where I would spend most of my time. How about you?

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 10 weeks and had a great time, home away from home. The house is clean and well furnished in a quite neighbourhood. It is close to Publix and a golf course. We ran out of propane one evening, I texted Lorenz and he was over next day with a full tank. Excellent care. We highly recommend this vacation rental.

Very welcoming! Had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property! Our son was getting married in the area and we used it as a base for family to gather. The house had everything we needed, was clean, homey, and nicely decorated. The home was spacious with a nice big back porch. We were met by the owners who were very nice and showed us around. Great house!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a good time at Ginny and Lorenz's place. It was immaculate and well stocked. They were even nice enough to leave us things like milk and eggs. Our sons (8 & 6) loved their room and the fact that it had a TV in it, and they loved the Wii- because we don't let them have too much screen time at home, so it was a treat for them. The spa tub was a hit too. The stereo was awesome as well. Beds are comfy and we enjoyed the back patios.

The only things I missed, because they had just about everything you could need, was plain old salt and real sugar, but day two I found the sugar I had brought (for my coffee) I also left a bunch of sugar packets.

For the first 24 hours we were there the toilet in the master bath was leaking from the bottom when you would flush, which started in the middle of the night, but we didn't bother with it because it was Thanksgiving, just avoided using that toilet for a bit. However we did use it again and the leak seemed to have stopped. I think my husband turned the water nozzle or something, but it seemed to have went away. Also, my son broke one of the blue glasses, but it was from banging it on the faucet, so the glass only went in the sink. Just FYI- sorry.

We travel to Melbourne most Thanksgivings and would definitely stay again. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Hi Amy, thank you so much for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay, the comments on the salt and sugar have been rectified, we always try to provide essentials for guests and many times add extras that may be useful. Re the toilet in the master bathroom couldn’t find any problems but will change the seals to prevent any future issues. Thank you for your feedback, your sons written comments in our guest book brought big smiles to both Ginny and myself, very well written and appreciated. Thank you also for leaving the house so clean and tidy, makes our lives so much easier. Look forward to having you stay on your next visit. Regards Lorenz and Ginny

Excellent location as a base to explore the wonderful Central East Coast of Florida. Your holiday home in Palm Bay is only 30 minutes from beautiful beaches, Indialantic and Paradise Beach a few blocks North are our favorites. Visit Kennedy Space Center 50 minutes drive North...see up close our space exploration history and see inside a Space Shuttle.

Or go West to Orlando and its popular Theme Parks, Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios other great night life and shows just 90 minutes away. If you are flying to Florida the main Airport is at Orlando (MCO), just 65 minutes away on the BeachLine and I95. Why not include a trip to the Keys or Miami, explore this wonderful coastline. If you want Outlet Malls, Vero to the south and of course Orlando will provide 'shop till you drop' opportunities! More locally we have fine restaurants, good shopping for gifts, clothing and groceries, a Super WalMart is located on Malabar Rd just a few blocks West of the I95 Exit on route to your vacation home..just 7 minutes away. Publix is even closer, just 6 mins SW at Bayside Lakes Shopping Center. Here there are also Restaurants, Subway for a quick healthy meal, gas station etc. The property is on a quiet residential street with good neighbors, very little traffic noise, green surroundings with tall Mexican Sunflowers bordering the rear garden. We have a couple of citrus trees, so feel welcome to pick your own fruit for that Margaritta or cool Corona!! If you are a golfing enthusiast, there are several golf courses in the area, the closest, Majors Golf Club is only 5 minutes away with transport...a pleasant morning walk if you prefer. We settled in Palm Bay 10 years ago because of its location and amenities...closeness to the Beach...away from the hustle and bustle of big cities...yet with the infrastructure to provide a very comfortable lifestyle, good shopping and great places to dine out. We have much more information about local attractions and places to visit at the vacation home and we would be happy to provide personal recommendations on your arrival.
