We are a family of 5 with 3 teenagers. We loved the home. It was very appealing and very close to the beach. We could hear the waves crashing from the balcony. We went during turtle nesting season and they nested right on the private beach we had access to. We missed the turtles, but there were nests everywhere! This location is very close to all the places you'd want to go. We went to Kennedy Space Center and the Brevard Zoo. They have a ton of things in their garage that we had access to to take out to the beach like chairs, boogie boards, sandcastle stuff, an umbrella, etc... It was like we were at home their.
The only cons we found were that we'd liked to have had a TV in the bedroom we slept in (the queen bed suite) and also the matress was very hard and it wasn't the most comfortable to sleep on. We mentioned that to the owners and they are looking into replacing it for the future guests. The other beds were great. We just wanted the separation from the kids.
All in all it was a wonderful stay.
Had a great stay at the property easy to check in and out of, and beach just across the street was easily accessible and light on people. The home was cozy and well stocked with cooking and beach wares. Very quiet with easy access to a local grocery store but overall a much more beachy setting.
Would highly recommend staying.
You can not go wrong with this property. When the owners say they try to provide everything you can think of for a beach stay, they truly deliver. Some highlights include an amazing space with two master bedrooms and an outstanding kitchen. All the things you would need for the beach are there (umbrellas, chairs, body boards, towels, etc.) Our kids enjoyed the bonus "kids room" so they could have some privacy when needed. All the kitchen, appliances, electronics are top of the line and state of the art. Another positive is the private beach and private beach access. The beaches of Melbourne are all beautiful though we noticed the public beaches tended to be quite crowded most of the time. However, the rental comes with access to a private beach and there were many times we had the entire beach to ourselves. The most we ever saw was 12-14 people but so much room to just enjoy the beaches and have some alone time to boot. Would highly recommend this property if you want to experience beach life with great host.
We were expecting a single beachfront house, the property was located on the second floor of the owners house and because of that it was not very private.
We spend 4 days at the Snorklin’ Turtle rental this May to attend our daughter’s graduation from FIT. The rental was more than we expected since we found all of our needs were anticipated from the extensive use of beach equipment to the well-appointed living space. For example, we found the refrigerator had condiments, the kitchen has coffee, sugar, paper towels, dishwasher soap etc, all of the things that made this experience be the same as we would have at home for our convenience. The rental was immaculate both inside and out. Our host Silvia was inviting, helpful and friendly. When a hair dryer broke it was replaced the next morning. We would definitely rent from her again and refer to friends. The property is about 25 minutes from Melbourne if you want to go into town. There are restaurants and outdoor activities in the area and the rental has a book noting all of the descriptions and contact information. The only issue was the third bedrooms access is off the second bedroom, Not the best for adults although that would be a plus for families with children who want to be close to their parents. Overall, a great rental, would definitely go back again.
Excellent value, planning on a return visit soon!
