Best vacation my family and I have ever had. Beautiful home, great neighborhood, close proximity to the beach (3 minute walk) shops, restaurants, parks, grocery shopping. The accommodations were good. It was a great time.

“Hibiscus House in June”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2016

While the pool area was quite nice, the house itself is a bit outdated and needs a bit of maintenance. The master bathroom has no door (just a curtain) and the toilet is approx 4' from the bed. Fine if you and your spouse are okay with that level of 'intimacy' but most of us aren't. Leaky kitchen, slow response for maintenance calls. The water connection to the freezer was leaking (which the owner was aware of but didn't tell us about) and when we told him we were fine with no water connection, as long as the freezer worked - we could just MAKE ice - the owner told us that the "water is not drinkable" (although it's just FL tap water and we drank it all week with no problems other than it tastes like Florida water). Still a bit unsettling to get this information four days into your week long stay. This annoyance could've all been resolved if we were greeted with a bag of ice and a few bottles of water in the fridge along with a note telling us "Sorry, no water to to the freezer. Please use bottled water." However, the pool area is quite nice, and the neighborhood is quite lovely within an easy walk to the beach, and we were there during turtle season no less. The neighbors all seem friendly and quiet. If you're looking for a house in Melbourne to rent, and don't plan to do much within the house while you're visiting other than sleep, this place could work. Will my family go back? Nope.

“Wild Hibiscus - Thank You Tom & Tita!!!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

Let me start off with thanking Tom and Tita for working with us on such short notice. We are originally from the area and had a memorial service to attend. Tom's communication with us was slightly hindered by him being out of the country but he responded to all of my emails and even called me within 24 hours. The house was a perfect fit for us. Sleeps 6 with plenty of extra room. Walking distance to the beach and the river. Clear directions for just about everything is in the binder ready for you as you walk in the door. The grounds are well kept and the house is very clean. We met some of the neighbors and they are very welcoming. Fred, the pool guy, was very helpful and nice as well. The next time we come to the area we will definitely consider this place again. Thank you again, Jeremiah

Hi Tom

I Just wanted to reach out to you & let you know we had a blast at the Hibiscus property! Our wedding was great & we plan on coming back next year for 4 or 5 days. I was wondering if we could rent your beach front property (either on the island side or Melbourne Beach like we discussed. Please let me know when your busy season is so I can try and avoid that. Again,
Thank You for making our trip extremely pleasant

Thanks for letting us enjoy your Florida home. Plenty of room for our family, clean and nicely furnished and the heated pool was a real treat. Great open spaces to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Great neighborhood for walking and bike riding not to mention the beautiful beach just a few blocks away. The nearby Melbourne Beach Market and Ocean 302 Grill were also great finds. Thanks to Beyond & Back Travel in Melbourne Beach for recommending this rental and making our travel arrangements. Hope to come back next year.
