Our charming oceanfront beach and surf cottage is a private retreat. This large beachfront tropical lot is tucked away on a prime surfing & fishing spot on pristine South Melbourne Beach. Only 1.6 miles north of the Sebastian Inlet National Park.
Learn to surf with Sebastian Inlet Surf Shop located within walking distance to the property.
Mountain bike trail (12 miles of tropical lagoon and jungle) access less than a mile away. Can also rent mountain bikes and boards at surf shop.
Please no gutting fish inside the house. Please keep freshly gutted fish in a cooler, not in the refrigerator (due to strong smells). Violation of this rule may trigger collection of part or all of the security deposit.
Please no fires or flashlights on the beach at night, we don't want to disturb the turtles, this is a nature preserve (Archie Carr). We don't allow pets, and we don't allow smoking on the property. No parking of trailers, RV's or boats on property.
