About Property Manager/Owner

Currently living in Miami. Born in France and well travelled. Hobbies include fishing, surfing, skateboarding snow skiing, guitar playing and hot rod building. Married with 3 beautiful kids (18, 17 and 12) who grew up on the beach outback.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this house in 200

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Melbourne Beach

Ocean front properties are hard to come by. New construction is limited and those homes that have been grandfathered in are a great opportunity to enjoy the beach lifestyle. The area is safe and a great place for kids to enjoy some freedom. The surfing is some of the best along the Florida coastline and numerous skateboarding parks are operating near buy. Orlando is only 1.5 hour away which gave a young family such as ours the opportunity to enjoy the area theme and water parks. The house is a great escape from our busy lives in Miami

What makes this house unique

The beach, the views, the waves, the fishing, the wildlife...A great place to get together with friends.

Beautiful House, Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat the location of this 5-bedroom house. The six of us stayed here comfortably for a great week. Sebastian Inlet Surf Shop a few miles to the south can provide surfboards and stand up paddleboards. Shelling is very good too. Plenty of restaurants nearby and up in Melbourne and Melbourne Beach. Take it slowly on the spiral staircase, and mind the abundance of shell displays throughout the house (!). Really a wonderful place to stay.

Fantastic stay in a gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need for a perfect stay. Everything is clean, well maintained, well equipped and the whole house is very nicely done up. The description and the pictures of the house are absolutely correct. You will get more than you can see on the pictures. Even after hurricane Matthew the owner Alex managed everything for a perfect stay. He was very helpful and provided best service. We can recommend this house without any limitations!

Thanks Alex!

Awesome family retreat in Melbourne!

  • 5 of 5

First, the pictures on the website did not do this property justice. The minute we walked in, we knew we had made a great choice. We stayed here with 4 adults and 6 kids ranging from 4 to 17. All of us had a great time! The owner of the property was extremely accommodating and responsive to all our needs.

If you love sea turtles, you will love this place! They were nesting every night and we even had a day time hatching, which was awesome. The water was nice and it seemed we were the only ones on the beach at times :)

The pool was also very nice to have on the days we were a little beat up from playing in the ocean.

Access to the second floor was via a spiral staircase, but there was also access outside from a deck. So, there were lots of ways to use the facilities. We had room for a few more if we wanted.

The kitchen is definitely for the chef in the family, we cooked some amazing meals in the kitchen, and with a well stocked grocery store nearby, you have lots of options.

The kitchen area had a nice sound system that we used when cooking or just lounging.

There were "living areas" up and down stairs so that the adults and kids could watch different movies or have different activities if they wanted, but we found lots of fun playing games in the dining area.

The backyard has a volleyball net we made lots of use of and enough toys to play with that there was never a dull moment on the trip. Lots of shells to find as well!

The property does have lots of nice things, so if I had kids younger than 4 - I would have been a little more nervous about breaking things (some sharp edges on things too if you have one learning to walk). You would just have to be a little more attentive with a younger one I think. Having said that our 2 youngest were crazy boys and they went the week with no incidents :)

The only downside was just a Florida thing and not a property thing and that was the no-see-ums (mosquito type bugs) that ate us alive. Be ready for those when visiting Florida, they were the only thing that annoyed us, but could not dampen the fun we had at this location , and we could not have asked for a better owner!

Book this place - you won't regret it.

What a beautiful home! This home was the perfect place to go. It wasn’t just a house, it was a home. We felt as if the owner (Alex) had invited us to stay in his house while he was gone. Everything was there, paper towels, TP, sheets, extra sheets, towels, beach towels, pots, pans, dishes, dish, hand and laundry soap, spices, beach chairs and toys. We were told to use it, make ourselves at home. Call him if we had any questions or problems. We did call him with questions and he responded immediately. We have rented several other places and have never experienced such a welcoming, home like feeling like we did at this home. The beach was perfect, the pool was excellent, big enough for all ten of us. It was like being in paradise. The only problem we had was, we had to leave. Man we miss that place. We highly recommend this home.

Ideal Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean very well provisioned with all the dishes pans etc. overall a well stocked kitchen. Great access to the beach and the pool set up is good with the sail shades and those for the car. We enjoyed the kayaks. The beach is clean and now sloped a lot so access was good for all ages of our guest. The floor layout is good and has adequate space to accommodate the number of guest that would fill the 5 bedrooms. All in all it was a beautiful place and except for a few items I will mention below was ideal for our annual vacation to the Fl. beach.

There were some issues: the foremost in my opinion is the circular stairs to the second floor, they need to be shown and mentioned in detail in the listing. What saved us was the fact that one bedroom was on the first floor and that there were outside stairs to the deck where you could access the second floor bedrooms. We had 2 people that could not have managed the circular stairs and it is difficult to handle luggage up and down those stairs. The following items need repair, the toaster handle while it worked with a little finesse it isn't handy, and the handle on the patio door under the stairs to the back yard is essentially off and can't be used to operate the door. An easy fix. Also of all the upstairs patio doors only the one on the north ends works as it should. The main oven while it works seemed slow to heat and you weren't always sure on the temperature it was going to end up on at least on the dial indicator. And the second oven wasn't connected which is fine had the main oven performed as expected. Also I am sure the grates in the sink serve a purpose but they make using the disposals more difficult. My only other thought was I didn't find any specific instructions on how to leave the bedding and towels we used. I washed and put in the dryer one load of towels we had used but left the bedding on the beds. Some places have asked us to remove them and put them in the laundry area. Which ever way is fine put other than running the dishwasher and taking the trash out for Saturday pick up I wasn't sure how you wanted these or other items handled.

All in all though we very much enjoyed the stay and the your place and like the area as we have stayed in this area before and plan to again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Don for all your helpful comment. The circular stair case is a indeed difficult to handle and quite steep. After spending a month there my legs definitely feel them. I often mentioned it to guests when i know an elder person will be part of a trip. I was there last Saturday and i realized the toaster is toasted (i could not resist lol) and so we are equipping the home with a new one. The door handle was fixed as well. These doors are extremely heavy and the elements are hard when you leave on the ocean. We try to upkeep the house as best we can.We do not expect our guest to wash sheets ot towels as they do pay a cleaning fee that includes all this. Thank you very much for your great review that will help us make our home a better place. We really appreciate it. Guests do not often take the time to give us such feedback. Thanks Alex

Our stay was WONDERFUL!! Absoluetly gorgeous home and very spacious. I have to agree with a previous review that the pictures do not do it justice. Very private yard and beach. Many items were supplied - kitchen items, beach towels, chairs, umbrella, pool/beach toys, boogie boards, kayaks, games, books...and the list continues. Many extras that made our stay so much easier and more memorable. Easy access to the beach with very calm waters. This couldn't have been a more perfect place for the relaxing vacation we were hoping for with our children. Excellent!!
