Look out for our resident wild rabbit 'Roland', he generally comes visiting early morning and after 5 PM in the evening!! He likes a carrot or 2 so don't be afraid to give him a little snack...as long as it's veggie!! The house has full Central Air Conditioning, double glazed windows to keep it cool in summer and warm in the 'winter'?!! A very comfortable house with tile floors throughout, makes it easy to keep clean and minimum maintenance. We enjoy staying there, hope you do too.

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 last year, with the intention of setting it up as a Holiday 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?

A flawless stay! As part-time FL residents, selected Ginny's and Lorenz's home to wait out Hurricane Matthew. In light of the impending storm, Ginny and Lorenz were extraordinarily flexible with our arrival and departure times and were there to meet us and walk us through the house and guide us as to how to handle the hurricane.

Green Gables has a delightful open design with loads of room and extras to make the visit comfortable from beginning to end. We stayed indoors throughout the hurricane and were then delighted to celebrate its passing with a wonderful breakfast on their spacious screened porch area overlooking a great fenced yard for either children or pets to romp.

This is an ideal home for a family as well as extended family! Convenient to everything; you will not be disappointed! Edwina and Don, New York and Florida

The perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I traveled from California to visit my ailing father in Palm Bay, FL and were very lucky to find this home available. Mr Hansen went out of his way to greet us when we arrived, giving us a thorough run through of all appliances, washer and dryer, stereo and TV's available, even giving us the remote for garage parking. The only thing we needed to do was unpack.

The bedrooms are spacious and fully furnished with all kinds of extra bedding and towels to use, if needed. The living areas offer plenty of comfortable seating with extra chairs for the dining area, too.

The Hansen's show obvious pride in their rental and strive to make sure every little detail and request is met.

I plan to return with more family so we can enjoy the home again.

Clean rental with gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property! Our extended family stayed for a weekend and enjoyed the property. We especially appreciated the little touches like how nice the house smelled when we walked in and the book with restaurant suggestions and house information. The owners are very accommodating and tried to make every effort to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely be back as house is close to relatives in the area.

I only hope that with all the good reviews that future guests continue to take care of the property as well as the owners do! Thank you Lorenz and Ginny for a wonderful weekend stay!

Gorgeous Green Gables

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous vacation house, my family felt right at home. We had everything we needed and wanted. Very relaxing place quiet and safe neighborhood and we plan on returning in the future. House was nicely decorated and very clean so clean that we were extra careful in keeping every room tidy and clean. Lovely place to stay close to restaurants, mall, beach, stores.and airports. Only issue was cell phone usage other than that all was good. Thank you Ginny and Lorenz for sharing your vacation home God Bless both of you. Nina and Family

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the lovely review. Making sure the house is clean and well presented is a priority for us. Regarding cell phone usage, I think the metal roof can affect some networks. The back porch is fine for good reception. Look forward to have you stay in the future. 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.
