About this listing
***YOU DON'T HAVE TO SKYDIVE...!***
to stay here, but if you do, my home is only 1 mile from Skydive Sebastian/The Drop Zone.
I have a very nice guestroom with its own adjacent bathroom available in my 2 bedroom duplex. My home is clean, quiet, and comfortable and secure. The Guest Bedroom has a very comfortable double bed and adjacent bathroom, and I will accept two guests.
The main/shared living area of the house has an open kitchen, quiet front room off the entry, and a yard full of plants and flowers.
You are welcome to make yourself at home and use the well appointed kitchen. I am happy to provide a light continental breakfast, and even on some occasions be more elaborate or share other meals.
If you are coming to skydive, my home is only 1 mile from the Drop Zone. If you care to fish (fresh water or salt) Sebastian is a wonderful location. Sebastian is a great fishing area. We have freshwater fishing in lakes nearby, shallow water and flats fishing in the Indian River Estuary/Lagoon This is a very eco-friendly area and home to Pelican Island Sanctuary. There are hundreds of dolphins and manatees who call the estuary home. We seldom go out to any of the 4 waterfront restaurants or out on the "river" that we don't see dolphins. We have several festivals and fishing tournaments throughout the year here.
Vero Beach is just 12 miles to the south, and features many fine arts and cultural offerings at the museum and performing arts theatre. There are several upscale dining and shopping opportunities in Vero Beach, and there are also several movie screens at two different locations.
If you are more active and/or adventurous you can rent Kayaks, boats and jet-skis in Sebastian to explore and play in/on the Indian River Estuary/Lagoon, take eco-tours, dozens of miles of hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails, surfing, diving, birding.
There are several waterfront restaurants in Sebastian. You might want to start the day at "Mulligan's" watching dolphins feeding as you enjoy breakfast from their rear deck overlooking the Indian River Estuary/Lagoon. Have lunch at "Squid Lips Over Water Grill" (the best conch chowder and bacon wrapped scallops), or drinks, dinner and dancing or listening to live music at "Captain Hiram's" outdoor sandbar or indoor dining (once again located right on the Indian River Estuary/Lagoon. Not enough to do yet? Try the "Tiki-Hut" on Indian River Estuary/Lagoon and play "Corn-Hole" or sing karaoke, or visit "Outriggers", "Pelican Pub", "Chill & Grill" or the "World Famous Earl's" biker bar/tiki hut outdoor Sunday blues music. You can have pizza from a different shop every day of the week! If you want something different (and fried) take a 15 minute drive to old Florida and have sweet potato pancakes or frog legs, gator tail, catfish, fried green tomatoes, fried pickles, fried okra , fried oysters at "Marsh Landing" in Fellsmere.
If you crave fine dining, Vero Beach "Beachside" has all you could ask for , starting with the famous "Ocean Grill and historic "Waldo's" (I think their "Boardwalk Burger" is as good as any burger, anywhere, and you can order and eat it at a table just above the beach and poolside at the "Driftwood Inn". If you desire something more contemporary I highly recommend "Cobalt" or "Citrus" (both on the beach in Vero), or the "Tides", "Maison Martinique"...(are you hungry yet?)
In case of emergency we have great police, sheriff, fire department and EMT services, along with two hospitals. Duke University has partnered with the Indian River Medical Center and has one of the premier heart centers in the nation!
