Hello!/ ¡Hola! :)
This room is $60 and it has a queen size bed. Also, there are 3 more rooms available in the house for $55 each. 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!
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!
What a wonderful couple and a superb experience. The room was just as described and extremely comfortable. There was ample parking at their home and I had my own access enabling me to come and go at ease. They provided brochures in the room about the area and had high speed internet available to explore online.
I highly recommend Alex and Maria as hosts if you are lucky enough to explore the Florida Space Coast!
We had a great stay with Alex and Maria and they were extremely hospitable. I would stay there again if I was in the area.
This was the first time that my husband and I used Airbnb and we were very pleasantly surprised. Alex and Maria could not have been more hospitable. The room was neat, clean, a nice comfortable bed, nice clean towels,all the amenities, (soap,shampoo body lotion) they even supplied a nice terry robe and slippers. We got some time to sit at the outside bar with Alex and Maria. I would definitely consider staying with this lovely couple again
Nice king size bed, private entrance, private bathroom, at an affordable price. What more could you ask for?
Alex and Maria responded soon after my request. They were warm and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Thank you.
Always a pleasure staying with Alex and Maria. Relaxed atmosphere with easy access to the beach and surrounding areas.
With it's own locking door to the outside and private bath, the Manatee room gave husband Bob and me all the privacy of a hotel room. But our stay was so much nicer than in any hotel, thanks to Alex and Maria. They welcomed us into their backyard bar, where we spent an enjoyable evening swapping travel stories over drinks.
