Peaceful Pineapple Ridge!


Property Details

Updated: Aug 18, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Enjoy the peace and quiet of our lovely historic area in a bright and cheerful home. Pineapple Ridge is the embodiment of Florida charm and a nature lover's Eden. It is located one block from scenic Indian River Lagoon and one block from the Savannas State Preserve. It sits on an old pineapple plantation on the ancient Atlantic Coastal Ridge (today grassy), therefore its name: Pineapple Ridge. See the occasional sandhill crane or gopher tortoise stroll through the front lawn.

Relaxed hospitality awaits you in delightful Jensen Beach, located between trendy Palm Beach (40 minutes) and the rapidly expanding Port St. Lucie (5 minutes). Wildlife enthusiasts and photographers will take pleasure in miles of trails and opportunities for hiking, bicycling, canoeing, sailing, fishing. Beach lovers will enjoy nearby beautiful sandy beaches that have been rated among the top in the world. Several golf clubs are close by.

For history buffs, relive the days of Captain Richards and experience the sounds early settlers heard when Flagler’s magnificent trains rolled past in this beautiful slice of peaceful paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Growing up in Eden,

I'd really like to know

How it would affect a child

How it would help him grow.

It's quiet and so peaceful;

Gentle breezes blow

With sounds of whispering palm trees

Sounds so sweet and low.

A woodpecker is busy;

Tapping on a pole.

Across the sand a turtle moves;

Steadily and slow.

The ever changing sky above

At times a vibrant blue;

Puffs of clouds or streaks of white

With pinks and yellows too.

Sunset is the climax

Of another day gone by.

With brillian, flaming colors

That flash across the sky.

Not always is it quiet now

A railroad passes through;

It carries goods from Florida;

Since there's also work to do.

Although the days pass quickly,

Life seems so calm and still.

Yet all is every changing;

I'm sure it always will.

Eden leaves a memory

For those who visit here

For those to dare to take the time

To listen and to care.

We know all places have a past

Things never stay the same.

But the beauty seen in Eden

May its quietness remains.

(*Owner's comment: Eden is the original name of the area where Pineapple Ridge sits.)

Owner's Response: Don and Alice were lovely guests who made good friends in the neighborhood and kept the house in great shape. It is wonderful that folks who stay at Pineapple Ridge find it as comfortable and cheery as I do. I call it coastal country and it is the best place to relax. I was able to spend a little bit of time there last weekend and loved reading a book while the birds were chirping and the breeze was running through the house.

Adventure in "Old Florida"

  • 5 of 5

Pineapple Ridge turned out to be an excellent choice for our first long-term stay in Florida.

The house is located in “Old Florida” and is adjacent to a Florida state nature preserve. The diverse wildlife we saw in their natural habitat made for interesting walks for us and our very inquisitive dog! Many of the neighbors who have lived there for a long time shared their knowledge of Jensen Beach and this historic area. This combination of history and nature made for a truly unique experience.

The home itself is very bright and cheerful, nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. The location was convenient to just about everything and was a great spot for exploring this area. We were able to easily attend the Sunrise Theater in Fort Pierce, see the Yankees and Nationals play at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, and visit friends in Vero Beach. We also enjoyed many activities including canoeing in the preserve, eco-boat tour on the St. Lucie River, attending art shows, and visiting local museums. There was always plenty to do!

The owner made us feel very welcome and went out of her way to make our stay extra special. Her recommendations were most helpful. We can see why she loves this “Eden!”

Owner's Response: This was a lovely, interesting couple who came down to live their vacation fully. I love it when my guests find the house as cheerful and enjoyable as I do and when they have such a good time in the area. I love spending time there myself! Thank you, Bob and Jeanne for gracing the house with your presence!

First visit to Jensen Beach

  • 4 of 5

We rented Pineapple Ridge for the month of February 2013. We found it to be impeccably clean and wonderfully furnished and decorated. It is a "Floridian" home with much attention to detail. It was very spacious for just the two of us but could easily accommodate 5 or 6 people. The pictures on the website are exactly how we found the house. It is a very short ride to the bridge to Hutchinson Island and to the ocean. It is also close to nearby Port St. Lucie, Traditions stadium where we were able to see Spring training Mets baseball. Grocery shopping is nearby as well as a variety of stores and good restaurants like The Dolphin, Tony Romas, GiGi’s Italian and Mulligan’s. The house was fully stocked with many things beyond our expectation. Neighborhood has friendly people too. We loved the area. The owner is most friendly, accommodative and accessible.

wonderful vacation

Everything was just like you see on the computer and more. The house was very comfortable with many up grades. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and long walks on the beach. This area has so much to offer you could keep as busy as you'd like.
