Among the beautiful east coast beaches of South Florida, well above the hub-bub of Palm Beach, yet still in the Tropics, lies Vero Beach, the Hamptons of Florida, and the half-acre of tranquility that is August Words House. Whether you are a writer, a reader, love one who is, or just enjoy the sun, you'll enjoy your stay. For more photos, plus area and travel info: augustwordshouse!com

The space
August Words House is spacious, thoroughly furnished by an interior designer, and accommodates 4 - 6 in two bedrooms with queen canopy beds, plus a full-sized futon in the library.

Swim in your solar-warmed pool, cook in your gourmet kitchen, curl up with a good book or write your own in the library, enjoy movies on your big screen TV, and when it's time to retire for the night - or a lazy nap - pile into your luxurious tropical canopy bed with the paddle fan swirling above you.

Or spend your days at the beach, playing tennis or golf, kayaking, hiking, or adventuring, creating Florida memories, knowing you can relax at day's end in your own quiet retreat.
