Beach Bungalow oceanfront garden villas

Beach Bungalow oceanfront garden villas

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 11, 2014
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The Beach Bungalow is a unique set of family and dog friendly private oceanfront garden

villas that we've owned and been improving on for 18 years. Ann and

I have used our boat building and design backgrounds to create very

comfortable and well appointed beach homes in the heart of the

oceanfront of our little beach town.

Our location just down the beach from our little boardwalk area can't

be beat. The villas are very private, the beach is lifeguarded much

of the year, and amenities like the best seafood restaurant in the

county are only a couple of blocks away. Plus we'll hook you up with

our friendly local seafood wholesaler for great shrimp, mahi, snapper

and all sorts of good stuff.

And if you don't like leaving your dog behind, you don't have to.

Each villa has a fully fenced private garden and the hardwood and

terracotta tile flooring inside are dog heaven. Unlike most dog

friendly places, we specifically designed our villas to be very dog

friendly while still being very, very clean.

Many of our guests have been coming back for years and consider their

favorite villa their own beach home.

Please email us with any questions you may have and we hope to see

you at the beach!

First family trip

  • 5 of 5
This being our first family vacation I didn't want to leave anyone out, including our dog. Beach Bungalow was perfect. Family friendly and safe beach as there are patrols. And anything you could want to bring to the beach as Ann and Rob have provided it. We truly felt as it were our beach house for the week because it was just that comfortable. The decor, vibe yes it's all there. And the price was a steal for what we were able to do, being that it is a fully stocked beach house. It would have been much more expensive at a hotel. Our family, us being 40's, 22, 14, 10 and little jack Russell. We were busy when we wanted and relaxing the rest. We choose to do the mom and pop attractions for quick but fun activities vs the grand Disney vacation. Which still is very possible since it is that close. And any activity we didn't think of on our long drive from Minnesota, rob and Ann had in their book of experience. Very helpful and nice touch.
The house itself is very clean, beds are comfy, the views off the balcony in the master is icing. All the shops we went to were friendly and helpful. Learning about turtles, the beach and even an unexpected swim with a dolphin at Sebastian's inlet gave us a wonderful first out of state vacation.
Thank you Rob and Ann for having this house available for rental, cause if it were mine I'd have have all for ourselves.

Owner's Response: We're glad to hear you had such a good time at the Bungalow. It really is a special section of beach in a central location in Florida.
I hear ya about wanting it for yourself. The Bungalow was our private beach house for a decade. Perhaps that's why it feels like such a private and comfortable beach home. Plus, being dog folks, we designed for that in mind with the fenced private gardens and terra cotta and hardwood floors.

Thanks for staying with us and taking such good care of our beach house.
See you at the beach!

Loving life at the Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
We are from Florida but wanted to relax away from home so we choose the Beach Bungalow after viewing the pictures online. This was one of the greatest vacation decisions we've ever made. Each day started with coffee on the upstairs veranda overlooking the sunrise on the ocean. The first morning there we even had company as we watched a sea turtle work her way back to the ocean after laying eggs in the night! The accommodations in the villa were comfortable and easy to live sandy beach life around. Even our dog was immediately comfortable. While she couldn't walk on the beach directly in front of the villa, there is a great doggie park just 3 miles north on A1A that made her day. Thank you Ann and Rob for sharing your wonderful oasis!

Family Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We are very familiar with the Melbourne Beach area, we have family that all live in town but we wanted our own space during our 9 day visit this year. This was the perfect location for our family of four. We have two small children under the age of 3, and the villa was very accomodating with a crib and high chair to use while we were visiting. The beach chairs and all the toys were wonderful and made it very convenient to just walk out the front door to go play/walk on the beach. The villa was very clean and kept-up very well. The owners were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed and gave recommendations for things to do in the area and places to eat/visit. We will definitely be back on future trips to FL!

Beach oasis

  • 5 of 5
The Melbourne Beach area and the Beach Bungalow were a 'shot in the dark' for us, having little familiarity with Florida as a whole, and planning this trip from afar. We were so pleasantly surprised with what we found both with the bungalow and the area. The Palms, where we stayed, is SO well thought out for a beach vacation - from a heated outdoor shower to wash off the beach to a great arsenal of beach chairs, umbrellas, kids toys, and boogie boards, to a vast kitchen of nice cookware. Ann was gracious and accomodating and answered any questions we had. I LOVED the combination of beachfront privacy / tropical and private courtyard / easy walks/bike rides to all sorts of amenities from coffee shops to surf shops. We rented bikes (got a deal at the bike shop when we told them we were bungalow guests) which allowed us to explore the greater peninsula and cute neighborhoods. I also appreciate a sense of environmental consciousness with the bungalow, for example -instructions for recycling and literature on protecting the Florida beach habitats.

Great vacation for a Canadian!

  • 5 of 5
This property is made up of three self-contained units each with their own parking, garage and backyard spa.
It is located ideally right on the beach and very close to Wendy's, Starbucks, Blizzaro's New York Pizza and CVS pharmacy. Publix groceries is only 5 minutes away and the Melbourne Market is less than 2 minutes away by car. Around the corner from Wavecrest is 5th avenue which has Subway and whole bunch of other shopping and food choices.
We stayed in the "Banana", which is the middle unit which has a balcony that overlooks the ocean from the master bedroom. Amazing views!
Everything was in order with great bedding, fantastic television choices (however, for a Canadian, being able to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs on the NHL network would have been a bonus, LOL), all appliances and utensils were excellent and the place is spotless! The hot-tub, was my best friend during the week.
The unit could easily sleep 6 people and has 2.5 bathrooms.
Great boardwalk to stroll.
Excellent police presence in the community as I continuously saw police drive-bys during the evening and night-time.
Hek, I loved this place so much that I looked at real-estate next door!
Well worth every penny I paid for the vacation!
Anne and Rob, who run the location, are excellent to deal with.
Presentation on this website doesn't do the place justice!

Owner's Response: We are of course very glad you enjoyed your stay at the Bungalow so much and that you liked our beach so much and you even looked at property!
I hear ya about that hot tub. I have my coffee getting massaged by those great jets every morning when I'm there. Not a bad spot for happy hour either. :)
Although Ann is there pretty much full time, I only get to come back every fall and each time I do I pick a villa that I want to do some work in. Heaven on earth, especially with that great view. Every time I show up I sit on the dune crossover, looking at that warm Gulf Stream water and that long sandy beach and realize how lucky I am to be there.
I go back in August and it can't come soon enough.
See you at the beach!
Rob

Location

Activity and Interests

There is no end to activities including swimming, surfing, body

boarding, surf casting, river and lake fishing, airboat rides, bike

riding, shell hunting and even treasure hunting! Mel Fisher made his

first major find of Spanish gold doubloons just down the beach from

the Bungalow and people are still finding more coins and artifacts

today.

Plus, in the summer, the largest turtles in the world crawl up on our

beach at night to pay their eggs. It's quite a sight and a great

educational experience for the kids.

At our Beach Buddies page on our website at we have listings for all

sorts of activites like surfing lessons, ariboat rides, fishing, and

horseback riding; and if you've got a special request we probably

know just how to accommodate it.

When it's all said and done though, the best activity is just sitting

on the beach in front of the Bungalow watching the waves roll in.

We want the Bungalow to become your beach home as it is for so many

of our guests.

Email us today for a link to our website and we'll see you at the beach!
