Description of the Vero Beach vacation home rental
As one of guests put it " upon arrival a wave of happiness came over me." This relaxing beach home will set the mood and backdrop for a wonderful relaxing vacation! With the sounds and smell of the waves come rolling in and the endless sandy beaches are visualized just past the dune line!

Recently updated,3 bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 8, 2 queen beds, one full bed and a sleeper sofa as well as a roll away bed. Direct oceanfront home in private setting. Wonderful view from living, dining and kitchen as well as rear porch overlooking the ocean. Excellent turtle nesting area, in the season of March-October. Close to the Sebastian Inlet and state parks/ nature preserves. Beach activities are on a non crowded, quiet oceanfront area, just beyond the back yard! Close to grocery and restaurants. Home remodeled extensively in 2014 with updated bathroom, new paint, new range and windows. It has a brand new high efficiency, state of the art, washer and dryer.

This home has a quaint cottage atmosphere, with tropical colors and furnishings inside. There is a washer and dryer. It has a private dune walk over to the Atlantic. Cable TV and WiFi as well as land line phone with free US phone calls. The back porch looks directly over the Atlantic and is a wonderful place to sit and relax while listening to the waves roll in. There are 3 chase lounges on the porch with additional chairs available. There is an outdoor picnic table for eating outside while enjoying the beautiful back yard leading to the ocean. Also the home has 3 matching beach cruisers for cycling enjoyment. There is a hot/cold outdoor shower.

Beautiful, clean, magical place! Wonderful time!

May 17, 2016

I rented The Daisy Mae Beach Home for 5 nights in April and found the entire experience to be above exceptional! The contact and communications with Debbie throughout, was stellar! The house, grounds and hospitality, just excellent. It was comfortable, clean, and every detail and nuance thought of. It is quiet and private yet close to everything if you ever do want to leave this wonderful place. While we visited we had one little issue with a clogged toilet and the response time was literally minutes before Jeff was at the house and soon after the issue resolved. My friends and I couldn't rave enough about this place, and in fact, the week after we stayed there I put a deposit down for next year to stay even longer! You will want to wake up every morning to greet the sun on the beach and sit out on the back patio to watch the moon rise. Even the road it is on, isn't too busy for traffic and we walked on the sidewalk along the river side in the mornings and my friends made use of the Huffy bikes and took them down to the wilderness trail one morning. We felt safe there and it was fun to cook and entertain and hang out in such a beautiful location. My friends even emailed me after our time there saying that they were sad knowing someone was in "Our House" now, and didn't want to even entertain looking for a different property next year. They loved it so much they were just a bit possessive of it. :) You will not be disappointed, and you will come away renewed and refreshed for sure! Great place to take pictures, make memories and enjoy your loved ones. We can't wait to go back next year!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Glorious! Exceptional! Beyond outstanding!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I recently stayed at this beautiful house with two friends of mine. We had such a good time! Everything was clean, stocked, and ready for a stay that was easy and fun. The courtyard outside, tended to in an immaculate manner. The bikes for our pleasure, beach chairs for our comfort, the kitchen stocked with what we needed, not a detail was left for us to concern ourselves with! Debbie and Jeff were such a pleasure to communicate with and our much anticipated reunion was made so special by not only the location and condition of this home, but also the kind and thoughtful owners. It is a no-brainer that I will rent this again for a "girls week" in the future. Every instruction to enter and leave the home is provided, every detail taken care of. It was my first experience renting someone else's home for a vacation and I just don't think any other home or owners could live up to our experience of fun and comfort there! Thank you Jeff and Debbie for tending to everything and for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house. We made memories that will last a lifetime, and will always be grateful for your hospitality and warmth.

My wife and I spent all of February 2016 at this home. We are from Indiana and wanted a reprieve from the snow and cold. We had thought we might try different rentals/locations each year. The best indication of our overall experience with this rental is that we have already made a booking for 2017 for the end of January and all of February. We decided it would be about impossible to beat this location. Since this specific home was already reserved for February of 2017, the owners offered us their second rental about 1/3 of a mile away from this one and we reserved it (Sea Grapes Beach house). We would have been delighted to get either. Some things that made this experience so positive included: location; view; cleanliness; owner availability, responsiveness, and friendliness; access to a very unpopulated beach; pet friendliness (we had our dog with us); shopping, restaurants, hiking, cultural availability and convenience (within a 20-25 minute drive without problematic traffic); weather (highs in the 60s and 70s with only one day of daytime rain); and relatively few bugs. We could not recommend this rental more highly.

My husband and I had an amazing vacation at this oceanfront home. The home was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. There is a wonderful view of the ocean from the open living room and dining room. The owners provided all essential needs and also a generous welcome gift. We enjoyed bike riding daily on the nearby Jungle Trail, relaxing on the private beach, lounging on the deck and dining at local restaurants. I would love to return to this home again.

My husband and I had a wonderful long weekend at Daisy Mae and wished we could have stayed longer! The owners are fantastic to work with; they respond extremely quickly are very nice and very accommodating. The home was perfect! Super clean and updated (the pictures don't do it justice). It felt like home when we walked in and put our bags down. We were greeted to a super generous bunch of goodies......red wine, coffee, crackers, cheese, etc. from the owners....talk about feeling welcomed! My husband brought a kayak and kayaked in the ocean; we used the bikes for a tour of beautiful scenery and just generally 'chilled' out on the back deck in super comfy chaise lounges. I actually fell asleep the first night (for an hour or so) on the deck listening to the calming sounds of the waves....we'll be back guaranteed! Thank you for such a great find, and obvious pride of ownership! Pamela & Jim, Orlando, FL

Amazing value!

Great property...perfect for families. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed everything about the house. Perfect house to compliment an amazing beach. Porch allowed us to enjoy the view (spectacular) and stay out of the sun when we wanted to. We've been coming to this beach for years and this house allowed us to enjoy it 100%. Also, this is a very unique location (barrier island), so if you enjoy nature the area and the quiet, deserted beaches are ideal.

Fantastic property and hosts. The house is located on the oceanfront with adequate privacy and very few people on the beach. For all artist's who wish to use this house as a retreat, it is ideal. The main living area receives beautiful light from morning until dusk and you have the opportunity to work inside on the common dining table or outside on the deck or near the ocean. The Wabasso bridge to mainland Sebastian is not very far and provides access to pharmacies, groceries etc. There are numerous trails within biking/walking distance. If you have children there is a decent size backyard with grass for them to muck around when they are not on the beach. Certainly a first choice for our return trips.

The house, newly renovated, was spotlessly clean and beautifully (but comfortably) decorated. The beach was wonderful. The children were swimming before 7:30am and until almost 8:00pm. As were were enjoying the private beach deck, we saw turtles nesting, pelicans, manatees, and dolphins. The shrub enclosed backyard provided a safe play place. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great beach vacation!

This home is absolutely lovely and clean. Everything was perfect. The owners even stocked the fridge with items for a complete breakfast, a bottle of wine, and a few Diet Coke. They even left treats for our dog. The walk to the beach is very short. We all had a wonderful time. Would definitely stay here again.

Debbie & Jeff's beach house was absolutely wonderful! The pictures do not do proper justice, the house is amazing, it's tastefully decorated, comfortable, clean and bright! They went above and beyond in every way! We got there to find all sorts of goodies... There was 2 beach cruiser bikes included and to my surprise when we showed up, Debbie knew there were going to be 3 of us for our girls weekend and they provided us with a 3rd bike. This is what I am talking about on how wonderful they are and thoughtful! The beach is steps away from the house and is absolutely spectacular, deserted, clean and fun waves! We are already planning our next trip, longer next year for sure! Thank you! We'll be back!

First, the hospitality of the owners is superb! We have never experienced the kind of welcome at any other vacation property. For instance, we arrived early evening after a 20 hour drive. They had stocked the refrigerator and pantry with breakfast foods, beer and wine so we didn't have to go shopping right away. Even snacks for our dogs. We could settle in and relax. Second, the property is right on the beach, walking distance from the Sebatian Inlet park. Location is priceless, and many days were filled with naps on the deck, falling asleep looking at the ocean, and waking up looking at the ocean. Last, the property is exceptional. Well appointed, fast internet/wi-fi to stream movies, and very comfortable. We plan on returning and adding on another week next year!

Great house and beautiful private beach
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beachfront home with our family! The house location is ideal to enjoy the secluded beach, walks, biking along path and relaxing on large back deck overlooking backyard and beach. The home has updates throughout and has an open layout between the kitchen and living room. The owners were very accommodating and showed great attention to detail. Thanks for a great vacation!

WOW! What a great place to unwind.
WOW! What a great place to unwind. Located about 15 mins from Vero Beach (1.5 miles ~ from Sebastian Inlet, you can see the inlet from the beach) this secluded beachfront home offers you all the amenities (internet, BBQ, bikes, body boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, full size washer and dryer etc...). The house was recently fully renovated, also everything is new. The owner is very nice and left us a full coarse organic breakfast, coffee and wine to boot. This is a very quiet stretch of beach and we loved it! It's far enough removed from the city lights so you can see lots of stars at night. On the other side of the road is the bay side. I hired a local captain and went fishing twice, on the second outing we saw (I am not making this up guys) a manatee, shark, ray, dolphin and we caught and released red fish, jacks and trout. The fishing on the bayside is very good. We also saw a shore fisherman land a small hammerhead. We loved it. I recommend it for all types of families.

Great vacation cottage
Our recent 5 day stay at our Ambersand Beach cottage was absolutely wonderful, much more than we (4 of us) could have ever imagined. Cottage and beach access was great. So clean and well kept. Cottage stocked with everything we could have needed, and more. Debbie and Jeff (owners) were very good hosts, making sure we were comfortable. Beds and bathrooms clean and VERY comfortable. Ambersand beach is located centrally with easy access to both Vero Beach and Sebastain beach area restaurants and shopping. Will plan another trip soon, would recommend this vacation hide away to anyone. Our 11 year old Shih Tzu Marci loved the yard as well as the ocean. Three widows, we felt VERY save and secure.
