Great week at Sandpiper's Rest!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend Sandpiper's Rest if you're looking for a home to rent in the Melbourne Beach area! It's very rare that we find a vacation rental that speaks to our own personal sense of space and design. Excellent remodel includes 2 very nice bathrooms and a kitchen that is a pleasure to cook in. From almost every spot indoors there's an outside vista through great and abundant windows. I spent a lot of time in the swing under pergola next to pool! Easy walk to beach or to lagoon/river! Beautiful house!

The Perfect Home Base for an Awesome Family Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

First off, this house is gorgeous and in this rare instance, the pictures actually did not do the property justice! Everything is new and clean, stylish and comfortable. The house has everything you need no matter what your tastes may be. We were looking for some relaxation and fun with our young son in tow and we found exactly what we were looking for! We never felt the need to go anywhere because hanging out by the amazing salt water pool was so wonderful. When we did take the very short walk to the beach or to the nearby Ryckman Park we were blown away by the beauty of this little town on the ocean. At the beach, we found wildlife in the form of crabs and dolphins. We took the paddle board provide by the rental out to the beach and were lucky enough to spend several minutes paddling along side a pod of dolphins. At the park, our son enjoyed the well maintained swing set and long walks down the pier to see what the fisherman were hauling in that day.

If you feel like a bit more adventure, a short drive down to Sebastian inlet is highly recommended. Once again, we were lucky enough to discover the local wildlife in the form of three Manatees swimming in the shallows. There is a nearby fish camp called Honest John's where we launched kayaks as part of a tour around the Indian River. Again we ran across dolphin and manatee as well as too many local bird varieties to name!

We had never been to Melbourne Beach before but it is high on our list of vacation destinations due to it's laid back atmosphere and uncommercial development. It's a sleepy town on the beach and it was perfect for our family. When we return, I only hope that this rental is available!

I cannot recommend this property enough. From the pool to the bikes and paddle board, the comfortable furnishings and stylish interior, and not forgetting to mention the amazing owner, we cannot wait to return!

Perfect location and felt like a second home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely and perfectly located for our family. It is beautifully designed with great attention to detail and these details helped to make our stay one of the nicest that we have had while revisiting Melbourne.

The location cannot be better. It is a three block walk east to a beautiful section of the beach that has no rocks or coquina. It is a two block walk west to the views of the river where we watched the July 4th fireworks. Within this 3 block area there is a terrific grocery store with a fabulous deli, brick oven pizza, huge wine selection, etc. There is a park with play equipment, dock for fishing, library, restaurants, beach bar, ice cream shop, surf shop, etc., - all within walking distance.

The house was spotless inside and out upon our arrival and we were able to settle in quickly. The open layout of the home looks out onto the swimming pool and meticulous backyard. The patio area is spacious and many meals were eaten under the pergola. The lawn area is big enough for throwing a football and the pool is a great size for kids to enjoy. One of our kids' favorite pool features was the colorful lights that illuminated the water during nighttime swims.

The kitchen and bathrooms are beautifully designed and use high end fixtures, materials and appliances. The owner obviously invested thought and money into making this a beautiful and comfortable home. The 3 bedrooms worked well for our family because our two youngest shared one of the queen beds and the beds are very comfortable!

We really felt at home during our stay. Two brand new beach cruiser bicycles waited in the garage (I want to get one of these!) along with the wagon for toting beach supplies, beach chairs and umbrella. There is a garden hose right by the garage door so all the beach equipment - including people, can be hosed off from a sandy day at the beach. If that doesn't get all the sand off, there is an outdoor shower on the pool patio but we found that blasting the kids with the garden hose worked best and it watered the plants at the same time. There is also a barbecue provided.

We lived in this area for many years so we appreciate the geckos and anoles that scamper day and night. They eat insects and are welcomed by FL homeowners. We also got a visit from a lovely FL box turtle, which we fed cantaloupe and left her to continue on her way.

We loved our stay at this house and will return again. I highly recommend it for couples and small families.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean, bright and in an amazing location. Even better than the pictures! Everything you need is nearby, not that you will ever want to leave the relaxing oasis that is the backyard! The kitchen & living spaces both indoor & out are perfect for entertaining. Beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the many updates and features of the home. Don't think twice... This is the place.

Relax and Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had an excellent time at Sandpiper's Rest and are looking forward to staying here again! While here we mostly stayed close, either in the pool or at the beach. There's plenty more to do, see, and eat just a short drive away (20 min drive south to see dolphins and sea life at Sebastian Inlet and another day we went an hour north to see Kennedy Space Center).

The home was exceptionally clean with newer furnishings. The kitchen and baths had nice upgrades one would only expect in a new home. Plus the kitchen was fully stocked with the daily essentials - all we had to bring was the food and beverages.

David was very responsive to our inquiry, and made our arrival and departure seamless. It was an excellent choice for a carefree vacation.
