Amazing property & Amazing Vacation!!!
March 22, 2015
Life doesn't get much better than this! First, let me say that the owner, Daniel is deserving of every great review on here. He is prompt and great to work with! His property manager, Zak, will ensure you have everything you need during your stay and resolve any problems you might have asap! So boiling my review down, the house, it's great! So great in fact that I'm planning my return trip in 2016! Having the ability to bring my smalll 4-legged children on vacation with me to a nice, warm home with a beach where they could run, made memories for me that I'm forever greatful for!
For anyone who has never vacationed in the area, Brevard county is my favorite spot in all of Florida. You have easy access to the hustle and bustle of a resort town with Cocoa Beach in about 30 minutes and just over an hour away is Orlando, where you can shop or entertain yourself to your hearts content. But this house, tucked away in Melbourne Beach, is in the residential part of the county, and believe me, you will come to appreciate that! Walmart, Publix and a great seafood market (Moons) are within 15 minutes of the house, and if you really don't want to leave paradise, the Sebastian Inn is 3 doors down. They do great live music during the weekend afternoons, have a pool table and make some good cocktails. They have a food menu too, but we found the food a bit bland, we liked cooking at the house better (fresh seafood on the grill). And we've never cooked for ourselves on vacation before (even in other condos), but when you see the gourmet kitchen in the house, it just beckons you to utilize it!
In terms of specifics, the house was clean, comfortable and with ample space. We had everything we needed, there was even small soaps in the bathroom and dish detergent and laundry soap provided (very nice touches!). We didn't have (or couldn't find) extra kitchen trash bags or paper towels, but those were easy fixes when we got groceries! The owner supplies plenty of options for entertainment, with movies, games and outdoor beach toys!
The only quirk we found with the house (and believe me, all homes have them so don't be alarmed) was that the water pressure in the master bathrooms shower wasn't the greatest but I think that was simply due to a clogged fixturehead, and when I told the owner upon checkout, he said he'd look into it! Again just a small minor nitpick, but that's all there are because everything was so stellar!
