Keeping a home hypoallergenic means providing a comfortable home for those who have allergies or sensitive to mold. The humidity in Florida allows mold to flourish. Most homes in Florida are eventually demolished due to mold infestation. We keep our home air conditioned during any high humidity period. Additionally we launder all bedding and use duvets which are laundered after every guest. All bedding that touches your skin is laundered. Additionally dogs and cats are never allowing in the house. There is no dog or cat dander. Our furniture is primarily leather and clean. The air conditioning filters are changed regularly, and the air conditioning ducts are cleaned once a year. We want you to come back year after year. We want good references. We do this for your comfort.

Comments from recent guests:
SR, Manalapan, NJ, Party of 8, Stayed for Thankgiving weekend. Everything was perfect. Well stocked kitchen, bathrooms, and bedroom. Home secure and comfortable. Has a social side in that it is next to marina and many friendly people especially the people on the dolphin tours. My husband didn't stop talking to strangers. He definitely liked the 65 TV for the football games.
JD, Ottawa, Canada, Party of 6, Nov 24, 2014. The house worked out perfect for us. We come every year to visit Florida, and this was the best ever. Everything was exactly shown in the pictures and perfectly clean. It was fun to walk out the front door and take a ride on the dolphin tour boat. My husband took the sailboat out twice and had a great time. The view in was to die for.
PM, Lansing, Michigan, Party of 10, Nov 16, 2014. Wow, this place is over the top. We were leery of booking such an expensive home, but when we split the cost up between 4 couples the price couldn't be beat. The master bedroom was outrageously large and the 4th bedroom a tad tight, but no problems with 3 bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and supplied. Our kids loved the marina environment and we took the sailboat out 2 times, and rented a powerboat for one day. Walked to a great restaurant about 1/2 block away Captain Kantanas and went dancing one night at Grills, about a mile away. Great vacation.

This is our personal home that we love. Enjoy the early morning sunrises. Enjoy walking out to our sailboat and spending a day on the water, or taking the fishing boat out. The marina as a next door neighbor is fun. Dolphins and manatees can be seen from the dock. Bring a bottle of wine and try a evening sunset cruise on the Dolphin Cruise boat.
It is great to visit the beach, enjoy a great walk, or spend a day with the family at the beach. We love that, but also love to watch the dolphins and manatees, and fishing from our front yard dock . When we want a nice evening out, we take the boat 2 miles down the river to Squid Lips for dinner and dancing. Otherwise we can go to Captains Kantana's for dinner, 4 houses away.
Our guests love playing in the water with our 3 man kayaks. No big preparation, we keep it in the garage.
We had a fabulous week in this house. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to feel like home. The kids loved the ping pong table. I would highly recommend to anyone.
We rented this house to accomodate several family members for a family reunion/birthday celebration in Melbourne. It had everything we needed, was very comfortable and had lots of room for additional daytime visitors. We saw beautiful sunsets and enjoyed sitting outside under the beautiful old trees. The location was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and activities. The beds were comfortable. Charlie was a gracious and generous host/manager.
Beautiful sunrises! Very roomy & all the beds & living room were very comfortable! Charles was wonderful to work with & he made sure all our needs were met!
Lovely setting by the river. The owners are very generous, thoughtful, and helpful.
If you seek to be around Melbourne this is one VRBO listing you would be hard-pressed to find a better retreat. We celebrated Grandma's 90th birthday there on Christmas Eve 2015 and it will be a great memory for our family. Many thanks!
This a a terrifc venue for family reunion and Mom 's 90th . Great setting, great flow to accommodate guests .
Charlie was terrifc and flexible and very helpful regarding the house, sailboat, and area. The sail boat and kayak was a perfect touch. I would go back in a heart beat. Beautiful and large comfortable bedrooms for adult children. Also a plus it was handicapped accesible. The main bedroom upstairs was spectacular with beautiful sunrises. Nearby restaurants make is easy and excellent shopping less than 2 miles. Highly recommend it!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed vacationing here with our plethora of children (need both hands to count). The main bedroom on the second floor is very large, with a very large walk-in closet, large shower area, large jacuzzi tub with a view, king sized bed and it has a porch with a spectacular view. We saved money by cooking in most nights, made sandwiches for the beach and ate out one night at Squid Lips to celebrate a birthday. The sailboat sold me (and everybody else). The weather was perfect for sailing and we took the boat out 4-5 times. We also brought surfboards and surfed at Cocoa Beach (about 15 miles away - easy drive). The kids enjoyed the personal dock and the swing was enjoyed by all, young and old. Roasting marsh mellows and playing with sparklers around the bonfire was a lot of fun too. We plan on returning. Melbourne is a very quaint town with a lot of charm. The house felt like home to us. The owner of the house made himself available for any issues. We had no issues, but benefited from his son explaining how the sailboat works and taking us out on our first sail day. Missing our stay already and we only got back home yesterday.
Local waterfront dining 200 yards from home. Take the boat to dinner.
