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.

Wonderful, stylish beach home w great kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults 4 kids (aged 7,5,4 and 1) stayed for 1 week in April 2017. The house is beautifully furnished as a 'high end surf house' - it's clearly been bought, decorated and furnished to be someone's home and not as a rental. It has an incredible Thermador kitchen (huge 6 burner stove and oven, separate oven, gigantic fridge freezer 2 wine fridges etc) 3 lounge/ sitting areas inside and a nice shady dining area outside (as well as inside). Master bedroom is a great size with huge bathroom and balcony. 3 other upper bedrooms are good (2 are kids rooms and the 3rd has a queen bed) and downstairs there is a 5th bedroom with a king bed off the office / sitting area. Everywhere is furnished nicely with great surf photos of the owner and family who have clearly loved using this house over the years.

At the back is a lawn with a volleyball net, some day beds and steps directly to the beach - perfect for a morning surf.

At the front is another grassy area before reaching the fun little pool with slide that the kids used for hours every day -great fun and sensibly placed shades to get out of the sun when needed.

The only negative is that the house has some tight spiral stairs connecting the 2 floors - this wasn't great with a 1 year old as too dangerous for him to use. Was also too tight to carry our bags up, but we used the outdoor stairs instead for luggage so no big issue. We hired a crib and surfboards locally.

Overall, we loved our stay and would love to come back another time.

Pictures don't show just how beautiful the house is!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Grandparents and daughter''s family of 3 girls. Girls had their own room and bath. Three separate "living areas". So many items are provided. The owner is very attentive and helpful. When we weren't by the pool we were on the beach. Highly recommend!

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.

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
