Welcome to our
SNUGGLE INN BEACH HOUSE! VRBO #660149
We’re located on the barrier island known as North Hutchinson Island; bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by our marina and the Indian River. We’re seven miles from Vero Beach and about seven miles to Fort Pierce (view location map). “Ocean Resorts”, our gated community and its amenities are sure to satisfy your expectations.
Our area of Florida is known as the 'treasure coast' because when Spanish ships wrecked, off of our shores, their treasures were lost and frequently drifted ashore. Much of the sunken ship's bounty has and continues to be found on the beaches of the Treasure Coast.
Our beach house (circa 1983 mobile home, converted into a house) has been redesigned and remodeled for Florida living, with an emphasis on the outdoors. The beach house itself includes one bedroom, a kitchen, and a great room/sun room and of course the bathroom, which is accessible from the outdoor living spaces (very convenient when returning from the beach).
The Snuggle Inn beach house is meant to sleep two adults, but there’s space in the sun room to bring an air mattress or sleeping bags for the kids. We also have a modest one bedroom property next door to the beach house, which is our family’s art studio, that can be rented separately for visitors for a day, two, a week or longer when it’s available.
The spectacular brick paved outdoor living areas include; large gathering & dining spaces, an outdoor kitchen, a conversation pit surrounding our fire place and a lounging area off of a wood deck. Additionally, the outdoor living spaces are surrounded and screened by lush landscapes that ensure your privacy (You may never leave the property).

Imagine, days full of fun in the sun, a cool evening of alfresco dining and relaxing around the fire pit with friends and family. Take a walk on our private Atlantic Ocean beaches, take a dip in our Olympic size swimming pool, play a few sets of tennis or enjoy some quiet time fishing off of the seawalls in our marina or along the ocean's shores.
Call the Snuggle Inn an island retreat, a vacation in paradise, a home away from home, a unique getaway, your sanctuary or heaven; they all apply. Whether you spend days, weeks, or months at the inn you’ll build memories that will last a lifetime.
Begin your married life as we did. We got married on our beach. Imagine honeymooning at the inn and imagine returning annually on that special date.
If you have a kayak or canoe it can be launched from our marina’s boat ramp. The Snuggle Inn property can accommodate kayak or canoe storage, but unfortunately, it can't accommodate large trailers, RV's or power boats. If space is available in the marina, which it usually is (especially during the spring, fall and summer months) you can also bring a sail or power boat (maximum length = 25’). Unfortunately, you’ll need to find a space to park your trailer while your boat is moored in the marina.
It’s impossible to describe our Snuggle Inn and our community without writing a book, but we’d be more than happy to tell you about it. Please contact us with any and all questions regarding the Snuggle Inn Beach House, our accommodations and our surrounding communities.
In the early 1980’s Ocean Resorts was a campground visited by people from throughout the USA and Canada. Visitors came for the serenity of the area, the ocean, fun in the sun and our weather. Our peaceful island was their retreat from harsh northern winters.
In time, the community grew. Tents and travel trailers were replaced, people began installing modular homes, constructing concrete block homes and improving their lots for their Class “A” RVs. Today, our community includes a mix of these home types with the trend being toward single family concrete masonry houses.
Our community includes 400 home sites, which are all inhabited by owners and visitors during the winter season. When the snowbirds fly, the population drops to about 50 full time residents. In the spring, summer and fall visitors flock to the community from throughout Florida. As a matter of fact, many of our Owners live throughout Florida. They rent their properties during the season and use them as a getaway during the off season.
While visitors can rent properties for days or weeks the majority of rentals are long term (months) during the winter season. During the other seasons visitors rent the properties for shorter periods of time. Honeymooners, vacationers, and people looking to get away for weekends or holidays visit.
While the Snuggle Inn Beach House has only one bedroom, the outdoor living areas are large with seating for at least twenty people. Guests that stay in the beach house who have friends and/or family, staying nearby or on other properties within the resort, will enjoy gathering, lounging or dining within the Snuggle Inn’s outdoor living complex.
Ocean Resorts is a community, a neighborhood, and a great place to live. Our Island and Ocean Resorts is without crime, as a matter of fact we don't even find it necessary to lock our doors. At Ocean Resorts everyone can meet and enjoy new friends and neighbors.
In 2007 we found a Class A RV that was for sale by one of the property Owners in Ocean Resorts (with the thought that we would travel the country). We purchased the RV and parked it on a vacant property that we rented. We'd travel from our home in central Florida on weekends at first but soon we were spending more time here than we did in Central Florida. Our children and grandchildren visited as frequently as we did. Unfortunately, the RV wasn't large enough for everyone.
Ed & Kathleen Boado purchased this house in 2007
After about a year of renting we purchased the property, which we were renting, and then we purchased the adjacent property. The properties weren't quite suitable. While the properties were acceptable for weekend visits we wanted more. We spent 95% of our time at the beach, pool, boating, golfing and hanging out under the sun and the moon
The properties weren't laid out to our satisfaction. So....... we decided to redesign the outside of the property to accommodate our life styles. The new design included everything found in a typical home (Gathering/dining room, conversation pit with fireplace, outdoor BBQ kitchen, private seating area, & direct access from the outside to the restroom. The design also included brick pavers, stone walls and seating areas throughout. After a year we found that living in our RV was tight, so..... we purchased another home, remodeled it and moved in.
We sold our RV and replaced it with a fifth wheel, which we remodeled and converted to an art studio for the family.
A unique benefit of the SNUGGLE INN BEACH HOUSE is that it is located on one of two adjacent lots that were combined to incorporate them both. Renters have the benefits of the use of portions of our adjacent (next door) property.
In additional to seasonal rentals the SNUGGLE INN BEACH HOUSE is a great place for couples to spend their honeymoons. Imagine a special place for that special couple. A great gift for the people you love.
In addition to the Snuggle Inn properties renters have the use of the rec center and pavilion, which are located adjacent to our Olympic size pool. While the pool is always available to the residents the rec center can be reserved for that special occasion.
Great place , great owners ... Everything you need for the kitchen ... Very quiet , very clean ..1 min walk from the beach... Tennis court and pool on site... The owners are always there if you need something .... Would definitely stay there again :)
Bridget expressed our feelings perfectly. We have taken vacations in Florida for over 7 years on both coast but this was the first time in a transitioned mobile resort, we simply loved it. This bright and roomy home is well equipped and decorated with taste. The patio is very spacious and very private with lots of space (the largest lot in this park with no neighbours in front and trees all around). Ocean Resorts Co-op has : wonderful semi-Olympic heated pool, great tennis courts, bridge twice a week and other games, library, many laundry facilities, etc. but what makes it so special is its friendly people who always made you feel part of the community. And of course, Ed and Kathleen, the owners of the Snuggle Inn, are part of that. They were always so helpful (thanks for finding the temporary bikes and the Nu Wave Cooker) and the fact that they live on the premises made a nice difference. Our in-laws rented the 5th-whell adjacent to or mobile home and they too appreciated the place. We loved every minute of our month here and we will definitely return.

During our time at the Snuggle Inn we enjoyed the ocean beaches (particularly at sunrise), the pool and other amenities at the resort.
Your home was more than comfortable, but the outside living & dining room and other outside spaces can't be described sufficiently. As a matter of fact, I think we spent more time outside than we did in. It was a little chilly Thanksgiving evening, but the fireplace solved that problem.
We sat around the fireplace, had a few cocktails and roasted marshmallows, which we hadn't done for years. Sitting around the fire pit with shadows of the flames reflecting on your “mural of the sea” was especially comfortable and romantic. As a matter of fact when we showed our recently engaged daughter pictures of the beach house and told our stories, she's decided that she wants to spend her honeymoon at the Snuggle Inn.
We didn't take advantage of the tennis courts or the marina, but I'm sure that the kids will. I spent some time shopping in Vero Beach while my husband played golf with some new friends. I thought that your island would be off the beaten track, which is was, but it was within minutes of some great shops and all of the stores we have at home.
Our Thanksgiving Day guest spent 2 nights in the bedroom on your adjacent property. It was great having coffee and breakfast with our next door neighbors (our guests). They too were impressed with the Snuggle Inn and you may be hearing from them.
Thank you again for your hospitality. We'll be calling for future dates and you might get other calls from our friends and family.
ENJOY THE WINTER. (Oops, I forgot you don’t have winters as we know them)
