Front Porch: As you walk up to the home you will find a welcoming front porch with ample seating for you and your family or friends. The porch faces the east which makes for a wonderful mild breezy evening after a long day at the abundant local beaches! You will be surprised to find a small pond, in a little alcove, at the front entry filled with hungry fish. The sounds of the waterfall will take all your worries away, even before entering the home. The alcove also makes for a wonderful meditation or reading area along with 2 built in benches and a small fire pit.
Living/Dining/Daybed Area: Entering the home, you will be amazed at the spacious open plan ready for your entertaining needs. A massage chair is located here, ready to release all the tension away. The living room and dining room work well together for entertaining, while also conversing through the open bar to the kitchen. Great conversations and fun times will be had while cooking, baking, or grilling. All of these rooms overlook the pool area, great for watching over those that love the water! Although the living room is open to the dining room, it also has an area that can be used for reading, exercising, meditation, or sleeping. This area is furnished with a beautifully arched metal daybed complete with (2) twin mattresses. The windows behind the day bed look out to an oak tree we planted years ago. Although there are many lights in this home you will find that you may not need them during the day due to the abundance of natural light from the windows making this a great area for a mid-day read or nap.
The living room has a 54“flat screen TV over the fireplace, five (5) DVD/CD player and Playstation 3, also plays DVD’s, for your entertaining needs. This is where the main stereo is located for surround sound, speakers outside and speaker in the master bedroom. (Instructions will be provided on how to use the electronics.)
Bedroom 4/Office: There is one bedroom located near the living room that we also use as an office/den. Here you will find two twin beds adorned with colorful flower buds on the bedding. This is also where the internet hub, DSL wireless router and wireless printer/scanner/fax are located. Feel the need to bring work along? You will find a desk and shelves awaiting your paperwork, but remember you’re on vacation of which this house will provide! Just outside the window in this room is the same oak tree where birds and squirrels come to visit, check that the bird feeder is filled with goodies and they will provide you with viewing fun. If you’re a bird lover, you’re in for a treat! And when sitting on the outdoor pool deck you may see osprey, egrets, pelicans, and others fly overhead. If you see very large birds in the yard or while biking, enjoy the view but please let them be. These are Sandhill Cranes and they love to visit the neighborhood, but if you try to scare them away they may decide to visit another friendly neighborhood. You may hear them as they fly overhead; they make a large warble sound.
Kitchen: The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave (also serves as a convection oven), dishwasher, stove, and refrigerator w/ ice maker, toaster oven (also serves as a mini oven) and water cooler with small fridge on bottom. Over the years our family has had many wonderful memories cooking and baking in the kitchen while entertaining with others in the open floor plan.
There are 3 phones in the house that provide local calls only. If you wish to make long distance calls you can purchase phone cards at Walmart, Publix, CVS, Walgreens or Sam’s Club. Note: Faxing to long distance calls is not permitted. Office Depot and Staples offer long distance fax services.
Master Bedroom: The master bedroom has a king size bed, 32“ flat screen TV, and DVD player. There is a wireless speaker located within the room that will let you hear whatever is playing in the living room or leave it off. Take a trip to the wild side in this jungle inspired room.
Master Bath: Soak your worries away and sooth your muscles in the Jacuzzi bathtub located in the master bath. Custom made Corian countertops and shower stall with European fixtures and glass sink. Feel the need to iron your clothes? No problem with the built in iron work station. A “High Efficiency” (HE) washer/dryer is within reach of the iron work station. (Remember to bring your own HE laundry detergent.)
Bedroom 2: Feeling a little down? Change Your Life in this fun loving room, I like to call the creativity room. Here you will find bright yellow and blue fish making their way through the big blue sea and bedding that will melt your worries away. There is a queen size “Sleep Number” bed that can be adjusted on each side according to your own comfort. A 32” TV, DVD, and VHS player can be found in Bedroom 2. You will find a few children’s DVD and VHS movies in the house.
Bedroom 3: A full size bed is located here decorated with Hawaiian artist “Dean Miller” bedding. A painted doorway takes your thoughts to a place of tranquility overlooking a colorful hammock and sailboat off in the distance. I call this the Hawaiian room, where there are endless summers and surfing is an everyday reality.
Pool Area: The pool is 24’ x 12’ with a depth of 3 ½ - 5 ½ which is perfect for cooling off and/or playing pool games. There are jets that help ease away aches and pains in your back. The open pool makes for great star gazing at night and sunbathing during the day. There are seating areas with umbrellas for those that want to enjoy the outdoors without getting too much sun. The pool is heated by a heat pump and solar panels for those cool evenings or colder days. For those with small children, a pool fence can be installed before your arrival. A hammock is available on both the front porch and pool deck. We love swinging in the hammock in the evening after a hot day and have seen shooting stars at night. There is also a small fire pit available for the pool area. A propane grill is available and lots of fun for the grill master in the family as they over look the pool.

We had a very good communication with Kandi. We had a wonderful experience, the house was as described, in very good condition, we had a really nice experience, we did had a problem with the water and Kandi rapidly offered a solution, we had the chance to meet her and she is a very nice sweet person, she even offered his family toys for our kids. We had marvelous BBQ at the patio while the kids were enjoying the swimming pool. Our room was so nicely decorated that we took few pictures to copy at home! You see Kandi's family on each portion of the house, every detail speaks for them, a warm, family house, quite different from those houses buildt for rental with no soul, this has a strong personality, a beautiful one. Thank you Kandi for allowing my family share your house, we had a great experience.
About the Host, Kandi
David was born and raised in Vero Beach and Kandi was raised in Sebastian. We met on the dance floor (we love to dance) and married in Hawaii, hence the inspiration for the Hawaiian room. We love to travel, kayak, bike, golf, watch football, cook, garden, renovate homes, and enjoy life! Growing up near the east coast of Florida has given us both a true appreciation of the beautiful Indian River Estuary, beach and life in the sun. We have traveled up and down the coasts of Florida creating wonderful memories with the family. You will truly enjoy your time at Tropical Breeze, we sure have!
