Very comfortable with everything we needed

August 23, 2013

We have family in Melbourne Beach and we were looking for a weekly/monthly condo near them. This was a very nice and fairly quiet location within walking distance to several restaurants. Enjoyed walking along the waterfront in the mornings, but the little park area has a lot of people hanging around in the afternoons. Condo 205 is nicely updated with plenty of seating and a full kitchen including a dishwasher, which most condos in this building do not have. The booking process was flawless and the mgmt. easy to contact. The bed was very comfortable (we prefer plush rather than firm) and we slept well. The book with area info that is provided was much appreciated. We shopped and ate in the downtown area. We fished and watched the wildlife. Got some great photos of a manatee and he was swimming by the dock. I enjoyed swimming and sunning at the pool area. Parking here is very convenient and there is an elevator. We will be back to this condo building many times in the future while visiting our family.

Great Condo, beautiful views, excellent staff!

June 17, 2013

My husband, 2 kids and I stayed in a condo overlooking the marina. The accommodations were spacious and the unit was furnished with all our needs. The unit is easy to get to and close to beaches, restaurants and groceries. We had an issue with getting the door to open when we arrived but management fixed the problem in under 30 seconds! They were also readily available to answer any questions we had all during our stay. Like where to get great pizza! The surrounding area is nice and clean. There was no "road noise" that we noticed during our stay as was mentioned in an earlier review. We did hear the train a few times but the unit is well insulated and it was not terribly loud. We felt safe in the area and even left our beach gear on top of the van in our cargo carrier during our 5 day stay. We did not visit the pool so I cannot comment on that. We used the fold out couch for the kids and hubby and I slept in the regular bed. I would recommend to all my friends and family.

Melbourne Condo

March 15, 2011

Last August, my family and I spent 4 pleasant days at this condo. It was easy to find, more importantly easy to get into the accommodation which is important after taking about 9-10 hours in travel time from the UK to get there. The condo had everything we needed for the short stay, it was clean, well presented, great views, a short walk to the high street, and very close to the harbour. The area itself is very nice, with clean beaches, picnic areas, good restaurants that are well priced as well as the harbour area for boat trips. We also travelled to Sea World and it did not take us too long, so found it a good location. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to others. It is also very well priced, and I found the owners very pleasant and accommodating.

Excellent location and views

March 14, 2011

Historic Downtown Melbourne is just to the west. Sunrise views of Crane Creek marinas and parks to the south and southeast. New Promenade Park just opened along Crane Creek. Quarter mile to the east is Rt 192 causeway. This is the best causeway in area to walk(or run). Great views of Indian River and 2 mile walk to nice beach and shops in Indialantic. Also many parks for fishing and boating before and on causeway. Condo has everything you need, comfortable queen bed and a excellent 32" Vizio TV.

Great Home-away-from-home

March 13, 2011

Last spring I spent 2 weeks in this condo while carring for my mother. I found the condo completly furnished, extreemly clean very comfortable. There is a great view of the harbor, which is very relaxing. Being alone, I felt very safe coming in late at night. You are walking distance from Historical Downtown Melbourne, and just over the causway to the beach in Indialantic. I found the owners wonderful to work with. My stay had to be extended, because of My mom's health. Another guest was expected the day I was to leave and the Herendeen's contacted other owners in the building and found accomondations for the remainder of my time in Melbourne. I would definately recommend this unit and the Herendeens for your stay in Melbourne.

Nice Place

March 6, 2011

The owner was very friendly, and the place was very clean and comfortable. You are also really close to downtown and the water. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because outside construction was going on at the time and there was a lost of debris from the building in the back yard. Once that is completed, this unit will be 5 stars
