“Melbourne Sea Front Vacation”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2016

Me and my family stayed at this wonderful property for 2 weeks last month, and the entire experience really surpassed every expectation we had. This sea front house was a dream, walking up and being able to see the sunrise from the beach is an experience we don't get to enjoy back home. We have 4 "children" between the ages of 19 and 28 and the area the house is in was great for any activity you can think of. Walks and runs on the beach, amazing pool, the town of Melbourne is beautiful, less than an hour drive to the theme parks, and a big must for my kids, less than an our drive to the shopping Outlets. As a family we love to cook and the big and open kitchen was great for this. We've traveled to a lot of places in the world and stayed at great hotels, but I have to say that these two weeks in Melbourne were one of the best vacations we've ever had. I highly recommend staying at this property to anyone, couples, families with small children or even big families like mine. We will definitely be back and enjoy the Florida sunshine soon!

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking such good care of our property. Next visit will offer you our lowest VIP discount. Thank you again for leaving the home spotless!! Tom and Tita

“Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

We were extremely happy with our stay. This home has the perfect view of the ocean and the kids absolutely loved swimming in the pool every day. So much better than staying in a hotel. Plenty of dishes, towels and blankets for everyone.

“One of the best vacations ever”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2015

The location of the beach house was perfect. We got up every morning to watch the sunrise. After breakfast on the deck, we were able to take long walks on a very quiet, private beach. Everyday we saw evidence of the sea turtles, tracks and newly made nests. The pool was an added bonus. What better than to come back from a walk and spend time cooling off in the pool. We also enjoyed the pool in the evening. The screened pool and patio area allowed us to swim or just sit and enjoy a glass of wine, bug free. We also enjoyed walks on the beach at night. There was a full moon while we were there. The moon rising over the ocean was beautiful. The home has beautiful landscaping with a wonderful variety of palm trees. There is a huge palm tree in the back yard that has a perfect place to enjoy a good book. The house was clean and spacious, but to be honest we spent very little time in the house because of the great outdoor environment. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I am sure that we will be back.

“Best vacation ever!”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2015

My family enjoyed a week at the Million Dollar Beach Home in June and we had a fantastic experience. We have three kids - a 9 year old, 14 year old and 17 year old. From the moment we entered the circular drive way and saw the beautifully landscaped entrance complete with banana trees, we knew we were in for a treat! The house is older, but it's very tasteful. Streamlined, not cluttered. The view of the ocean was breathtaking. The home comes with a huge pool - big enough to race each other! The beach was secluded in front of the house. We didn't have to share the beach with anyone, except the turtles who hatched while we were there! One of my favorite parts of the week was enjoying a cool drink with my husband as we relaxed in the hammocks under the coconut palm tree. The view from there was unbelievable. It doesn't get any better than that. We saw so much beauty...the ocean, the tropical birds, the lizards, the flowers.... it was incredible. Check-in and check-out were streamlined. All of the appliances worked. Plenty of restaurants, movie theaters, and activities to enjoy (we took an airboat tour and saw alligators). We also brought our home movies and enjoyed some great family memories. We loved this home. We will definitely be back!

“Million Dollar Vacation”

Reviewed 19 May 2015

We're so happy Tom shared his home with us. My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing stay in this clean and comfortable home right on the beach. The view is spectacular. The home and secluded beach were reminiscent of stepping back in time from our busy day-to-day. Our favorite thing was sitting in the love seat on the edge of the yard in the early evening enjoying the sights and sounds of the sea (and cocktails). It was just the two of us, but there is plenty of room for a bunch more. The ocean side pool was our second favorite (or a tie for first) and the BBQ was the third. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, but we enjoyed the local markets' choice of meats and ended up grillin' and chillin' at home every night. The home is well equipped with every day items. Master king bed was very comfortable with great linens. Plenty of bathroom/beach towels were provided, but would love to have had some resort style bathroom towels to compliment the bedding. Overall this was a great vacation and we will be back!

Reviewed 16 Feb 2015

Tom's home is a beautiful, spacious home just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean. The heated pool was the icing on the cake for our family and since we traveled from the Northeast and Northern California this just added to our delightful week. The landscaping is beautiful with the many varied palm trees and tropical plants! We enjoyed trying some of the recommended restaurants and hope to return soon!

“Amazing”

We had an amazing time in the house we stayed in, the view of the ocean from the house was spectacular, having the private beach was also very nice. We saw a few manatees, a sea turtle and lots of lizards in the yard, they were alot of fun to watch. We had alot of our meals while watching the ocean from the conservatory room with an amazing view, the screened pool was very nice, we had an amazing time and can't wait to go back again, so we can spend more time at the house, we would like to thank Tom and Tita for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

“Reviewing Hibiscus Vacation House”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2012

I was wanting to rent the million dollar beach home but it was unavailable. Instead I rented the Hibiscus Vacation House. We were totally satisfied and the pool and screened in room exceeded our expectations!! It added another level of greatness to our vacation in Melbourne. The ocean path was just steps away and that too was an exciting experience. We found a little market and nearby restaurants that were over the top of excellent!! We experienced many nights of dining in with a bbq'd meal and also the dining out experience in the local restaurants. City Tropics was really great!! All in all we couldnt have asked for a more relaxing vacation! We were very happy with Melobourne from the house rental to the car rental and all the sites we saw!! A+ in our books. Can't wait to return from the Canadian cold to the warmth of Melbourne. I very much would like to experience the Million dollar Beach Home for my next visit. Im quite sure this will be another fantastic vacation to come!! Kind regards, & warm memories!!!

Hi Tom,

I wanted to get back to you and tell you what a wonderful time we had at your house. The house was so clean, which we truly loved, we are clean freaks. We took care of your house like we would want our house taken care of! I also wanted to mention what nice people you have working for you, Amalia and Fred were so fabulous, I am happy I got to meet them.

I left behind 2 beach umbrella's and a beach raft also a laundry basket, I hope you don't mind. We enjoyed using them and hopefully someone else can have as much fun!

We loved your house, thank you for allowing us to rent it. Hopefully, we can come back again next March and rent it again.

I already miss it, the weather was so amazing, today it is rain, cold cloudy and 40 degrees. When we left yesterday it was going to be in the high 80's!, boy are we stupid......

Take care and thank you again.

Subject: Re: Arrival Beach House
Tom,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say what a wonderful time we had at the house. It was the perfect place for us. We enjoyed the pool often and sat many nights just gazing up at the stars while relaxing in the pool. The early mornings were spent just sitting down by the ocean with a cup of coffee and listening and watching the ocean which was a treat for all of us and our hectic lives.

There was allot of great times and a lot of love and laughter that took place there. The setting was perfect.

We tried to respect the house and I hope you were pleased with the condition we left it. We tried to follow your directions in how to leave it although I did feel a little guilty leaving the last nights bedding and towels unwashed.

The grounds were beautiful and peaceful and well manicured. The pool was fabulous.

The lighting in the living room was dark so we found ourselves spending most of our time in the great room overlooking the pool and the ocean. We never turned on the TV or DVD so I will not comment on either of those.

All the beds were extremely comfortable and the pillow selection was great.

The bathrooms were all in good working order and very clean.

All and all it is a great house and we found the location to be perfect and easily accessible to all the tourist traps as well as the little home town shops in the historic downtown area.

We all feel it was a great find and all were very happy with it. Thanks again for allowing us a break on the price so we could enjoy it.



Thanks again for the use of the wonderful house. We have great memories to take with us. My daughter wants to rent it again next year for our family vacation. I guess that just says what a really great time we all had.

"Great time, great place!
It's been years since we've had a real beach vacation and this was awesome and relaxing!
Kids loved the pool and the outdoor shower with heat and it really helped keep the sand out of the house! Great set-up!
Loved the privacy on the beach - practically deserted. The nighttime turtle watching was also totally cool!"
Thanks!

"Thank you so much for your Dream House.
We truly enjoyed every second we spent here and we hope to be back soon.
Thank you for your kindness and hospitality"
Luis Family

"Once again; we have had a wonderful week!
We enjoy the small town atmosphere that Melbourne offers. It's great to be near major attractions..... But who wants to go anywhere when you have the beach and a heated pool within steps of your backdoor??? ALL ages just wanted to be here, relax and play!
We also appreciated the many little things that make it seem like home rather than a "Sterile" impersonal environment of so many other places. Keep up the Great Work!"

"We had a beautiful stay. An ideal location for our honeymoon. We will definitely be contacting you in the future about staying at one of your houses again.
Thank you so much for making our honeymoon one to remember. God Bless You."
