About this listing
This room is $50 and it has a king size bed. Also, there are 3 more rooms available in the house. They are fully furnished, with T.V., wi-fi, night stands, dresser, etc. We are 7 minutes drive from the beach. It is not actually walking distance, but it is a very quick drive.

We are from Costa Rica but have lived in Florida for over a decade. We enjoy having visitors from all over the world and enjoy providing tips about the area, downtown Melbourne, Palm Bay, the beaches, Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Orlando, Miami, etc.
If you need to be picked up from the airport, or dropped, we might be able to take you for a reasonable fee. Let us know the dates and time in advance while booking and we will confirm whether we will be available to take you to the airport, or pick you up.
The beach is only 4 miles from the house, while historic downtown Melbourne is only 3 minutes away! FIT is only 5 minutes away.
Downtown Melbourne is a very nice area with lots to do every day, unique and creative local stores, live music, great restaurants, art festivals every month.
There are many restaurants for dining by the water, with view to the ocean, lots of happy hour specials, souvenir shops, surf shops, and miles of beautiful beaches of course!
We enjoy to be as hospitable as possible and we will certainly be glad to offer you snacks, coffee and similar treats when we are available and around the house :) You may use the kitchen as needed throughout the day too.
If you have any requests beforehand, we'll be glad to try to make them possible :)
Please tell us a bit about yourself and your visit in town.
We appreciate AirBnB users with some verifications in their profiles.
Also, once you know your approximate time of arrival, please let us know so that we can be ready for you.
We look forward to host you :)
Upon arrival we will give you a key of the house, so you may go and come as needed. If you decide to come late and enjoy a night in the town, that's ok too, we just ask that you enter quietly when you return.
We are a couple in our 50's and we do live in the house alone, but the rest of the family visits us regularly (our grown up children and grandkids), so you may find one of us around sometimes. We are quite friendly people and love to chat, but we also respect your privacy and we understand when you just need to rest and be alone, so feel free to come and chat with us in the living room, or simply stay in your room and rest.
If you have any requests beforehand, we'll be glad to try to make them possible, let us know. You will find clean towels, toiletries and local maps in your room.
We are happy to offer you coffee and snacks when we are around the house. You may use the kitchen as needed.
The washer and dryer are available if you need to do some laundry, we'll be glad to share laundry detergent if you need some.
Let us know if you have any questions, about the area, great restaurants, shops, the beaches, etc.
We look forward to host you!
Alex and Maria live in a very nice and big house in a wonderful area. We only stayed at their place one night, but it was enough to understand that they are very nice hosts. I had the chance to talk with Alex and he has lots of experiences to share. I hope to get to see them again.
Alex and Maria were very nice and gave great recommendations for dinner. The room was very clean and the bed was amazing. Nice place.
Alex warmly welcomed us and showed us around the house. The room itself was nice and clean. Only the air conditioning stinked. The bathroom was ok. All in all we can recommend a stay at Alex's and Maria's house having in mind the price for the stay.
Staying with Alex and Maria was my first Airbnb experience, and it was a good one. Alex was very welcoming and the accommodations were very comfortable, especially the bed. I was tired from a long day and left early the next morning, so unfortunately, I did not meet Maria. I'm sorry I didn't have more opportunity to enjoy their hospitality, but can well recommend it!
I found the neighborhood to feel quite safe, and it was reasonably convenient to Melbourne and the beach. I think I should mention that there were some trains passing during the night nearby which may disturb very light sleepers.
Wir wurden herzlich empfangenen, das Zimmer entsprach der Beschreibung,
Alex and Maria were wonderful hosts!! They were kind and considerate even making Agua Dulce for me after I mentioned I had some and loved it on a trip to Costa Rica.
They have set up their home to be very comfortable for entertaining with an open air bar/patio. Their children and grandchildren came over one evening for a BBQ and Alex invited me to stay and eat with them. Two other AirBnB guests joined in and one of those guests is a professional singer. The food was AMAZING!! The music was beautiful and the family atmosphere and inclusiveness made for a wonderful and relaxing evening.
The bedroom was very comfortable as was the king-size bed. Alex and Maria keep the temperature of their home very comfortable, which is a big concern for me wherever I stay as I am very hot natured.
The bathroom was large and clean with access to a washer/dryer making their home very comfortable for visiting the beach and washing beach gear.
Alex and Maria were both kind and gracious. I loved staying with them and they made me feel very comfortable and cared for!
