About this listing

King size bed
1 mile of the beach

The space


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.

In your room you will find clean towels, toiletries and local maps. If there is something we can do to make your stay more comfortable, please don't hesitate to let us know!

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!

We had a good time at Alex and Maria's. The location was central to downtown Melbourne which had an abundance of shops and restaurants. Very close to the beach. The bed was large and comfortable. The waterfall shower in the bathroom was a nice touch. We had a few issues with creatures during our stay. There was a lizard in our room that we had to shoo out, as well as some dead bugs and ants under the bed. Overall was an okay stay.

My husband and I stayed for a quick night. Alex and Maria were excellent hosts. The room was very clean, comfortable, and we were offered a drink shortly after we arrived. Thank you so much, Alex and Maria! We would 100% recommend.

Check in was very easy even though we arrived quite late. The room is spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately, during the second night, we couldn't sleep until very late because there seemed to be a family fest going on right outside our window. Other than that we can recommend staying here, the beautiful beach can be reached with a short drive,

We are Alex and Maria. We are Costa Rican & Floridian.

We have been hosting guests through Airbnb since June 2012, initially through the profile of our daugther Lisa, and hence you will see her name throughout the reviews of previous guests.

We enjoy meeting people from different countries and hosting them, while providing tips about Florida and the beaches nearby.

Our home is just a couple of minutes drive from Historic Downtown Melbourne, and about 7 minutes drive from Melbourne Beach. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, we'll be glad to make your stay as comfortable as possible!
