Comments From Our Guests


(Classic Apts. Only -- Executive Apts. Not Available) 


 2'nd Floor .. December

     A nice retreat for a grandmother.  Visited the little ones by day then sent them home in  Melbourne by night.  

    Sleeping space and kitchen are larger than most local weekly rentals. 

    Can't beat the location to chill out.

Marti (Florida)

 2'nd Floor -- November

    We spent a great week here.  Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves was medicine to our souls.  This place is indeed a little piece of heaven.  

     Thanks so much.

 Joan & Rich (New York) 


 2'nd Floor -- November

    We booked the beach house for our 20'th wedding anniversary.  What a perfect spot to celebrate a romantic get-away! 

    I had brought books but didn't read a page.  We just sat on the porch [deck] all evening even though it was dark at 6 P.M. ... we just sat and absorbed the peaceful setting. 

    We didn't have one meal out ... we could not be parted from the house.   I cooked every night and we ate on the deck.  A glass of wine or bubbly, just idyllic. 

    We will always remember this holiday. 

    We were in bed by 9:30 and up early, unheard of for us ... we were so relaxed.

Thank you, thank you ...

John & Ann (Ware, Hertfordshire, England)
 2'nd Floor -- October

    We're so glad that we found the Melbourne Beach House on the internet.   The beautiful clean apartment located on an endless beach is by far the best we've ever stayed for holidays.

    We saw dolphins, spiders and crabs on the beach.

     A childhood dream came true: we saw a rocket and a shuttle launch!  

    What a remarkable place it is!

    We'll be back soon!

Kaily & Thomas (Munich, Germany)

1'st Floor -- August

    If you're looking for a charming, quaint, cozy and totally efficient place to stay -- this is the place for you.  It has all the amenities of home, plus a fantastic view, and the ocean at the back door.  We so enjoyed our time here -- from sun worshiping on the beach, to walks on the beach as well as to the store; it was such a relaxing atmosphere!  We couldn't ask for anything better!  We definitely recommend this home away from home to everyone!  Thank you so much for everything.

Bill & Barbara (Florida)


2'nd Floor -- August

    Had a great time!  Was totally awed by the shuttle Endeavor and the Jazz @ Crown Plaza.  Saw a mother turtle making her way back to the sea one morning.  Amazing mother nature!  Beautiful surroundings.

Jerry & Chris (Ohio)


1'st Floor -- July

    We had a great week here.  The weather was perfect, the beach was beautiful .. and the turtles were really awesome!  We look forward to coming and staying again.

    Thanks for a great 50th birthday week for Larry!  We had a wonderful time fishing and totally relaxing.

Pam & Larry (Florida)


1'st Floor -- July

    I have had the most amazing 5 weeks here in Melbourne, and I really could not have had a more perfect place to stay.  The ocean view is beautiful, the sound of the waves were so relaxing, and most days it was as if I had the beach to myself!

    The apartment had everything I needed, and so much more.  Thank you for opening up your home.  I only regret I cannot stay longer.

    (The full rainbow over the ocean right now sums up my trip-perfect.)

Emily (Georgia)


2'nd Floor -- June

    This vacation was perfect!  We will be coming back!  The setting was beautiful.  We will be telling everyone up home about this!  Thank you so much.

Laura & Mike (Pennsylvania)

2'nd Floor -- June

    Once again we came to Melbourne Beach House weary from the stresses of everyday life.  We now leave recharged and ready to take on the world again.  Thanks to Juanita & George for their hospitality.  Hope to see you soon.

Sandi & Randy (Kentucky)


1'st Floor -- May

    Our kids sent us here to celebrate our 25'th wedding anniversary, and we're ... well - pleased.  We'd visited the area years ago and appreciated the laid-back nature we found here.  And though it's "filled in" in areas, we still enjoyed it.  Melbourne Beach still offers a lot of "community" and small town spirit.

    We appreciated the porch-less porch swing out front, walking the shore - even the strong "Nor-easter" that blew for several days.  We saw a different face of the ocean.  Restaurants you recommended lived up to expectations.  Fishing charter on the Indian River with Jeff Brauer of Vero was a joy.  Observed a sea-turtle making her nest one evening with lightning at sea as a background.  Overall, most enjoyable.  We hope to get back to introduce the kids to all this!

    Thanks for providing such a clean & lovely place to stay!

Gennie & Doug  (Illinois)


1'st Floor -- May

    We started our marriage with a honeymoon in Florida 30 years ago.  With some consideration invested, we decided to try it again.  The Melbourne Beach House promised what we were "NOW" looking for.  After a week our expectation of comfort, privacy and beach access were met. 

    We leave with tans and a warmer attitude for the immediate future.

    Thank-you Juanita and George for your hospitality and the use of "your" piece of paradise.

Dawne & Dale (Michigan)

2'nd Floor -- April

    What a beautiful place on the beach!  This view is the best I have ever experienced - water from every window, lovely soft breeze, and the constant sound of ocean waves.  Melbourne Beach House, even while undergoing renovation, is perfect on the inside - well equipped, clean and comfortable.  George and Juanita were so helpful in suggesting restaurants.  It's the "perfect spot on a beach" for sure.

    Thanks for your hospitality,


    The Beach House is a place of peace and calm.  The stress seems to "wash away" as one watches the waves roll onto the beach.  I feel as if my soul has been nourished and my body warmed by the sun.

    Thank you,


1'st Floor -- April

    We are so impressed with the Beach House and this beautiful stretch of coast away from Milhey & Co.

    It's been so relaxing soaking up the sun and watching the pelicans cruise up and down, we are really sorry to be leaving.

    Thanks so much for making us feel at home.  We felt really spoiled here with all the home comforts but with the beach right outside.

    Good luck with all your plans for the future and thanks again.

Oliver & Angela (London, England)

2'nd Floor -- April

    Had a great time.  Caught over 80 fish, Blues, Pompano, whiting, & more off the Beach.  Vickie and I love the isolated beach and the views. Also the apartment was super comfortable (Comfortable bed by the way!)

    I think this is the perfect time of year for a fun filled week.   We had some great food at "The Friendly Toast".  We plan to be back same time next year.

Roger & Vickie (Georgia)

2'nd Floor -- April

    This is our second time we had our spring break at your beach home and we can truly say it is the most relaxing vacation we have all year.

    The beautiful quiet and peaceful beach, surf, sand and sun are perfect.  We love the balcony and view.  Jim caught lots of fish and we took our boat out to some in the river & canal and watched the manatees and dolphins come right up to the boat!  A great experience.

    We are going back happy & rested. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.

Carol & Jim (Florida)

2'nd Floor -- April

    The beach house is actually under renovation but luckily, the exterior (actually ugly) doesn't match with the interior which is perfect-nice, light in every room, with a nice exterior sun deck.   The beach is naturally beautiful, not crowded, again: perfect!

    After the renovation the beach house will look "gorgeous".  Hope rates won't increase. 

Gilles & Sylvie (Quebec, Canada)

1's Floor -- April

    If you have a hunger for peace and quite, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you will definitely find it here in George and Juanita's beautiful Beachfront home.  The location is simply perfect.

    We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return in the future to once again watch the sunrise each morning over the ocean while listening to the breakers reach the shore.

    Thank you to our gracious hosts who ensured our visit was comfortable and pleasurable.  (Best of luck with the remodeling plans, in and out)

Christie & Jack (New Jersey)

2'nd Floor -- March

    Marta and I had a wonderful time from the moment we arrived.  The beach and water is amazing.  That was our first stop.  I had never seen the ocean so it was quite breathtaking to me.  It was returning to a love & passion for her.

    Although through our downstairs neighbors warnings we love the apartment and felt right at home the minute we stepped through the door.  We had plans to visit various restaurants. We stayed at home for the most part because of the wonderful view and romantic feel of the ocean.

    We had a great time boggy boarding in the ocean, taking walks on the beach and sitting and laying on the beach taking it all in.  We ate at a few places and loved the experiences we had at each restaurant.  Long Doggers' was fun with a really laid back atmosphere.  Bunkey's had amazing fresh and most delicate oysters.  We ate three dozen!

    We celebrated our six month anniversary at the restaurant in Crown Plaza.  It was very romantic sitting on the ocean. enjoying the food and ambiance.  

    The Thirsty Turtle was great and fun we ate appetizers and had a nice time.

    It was a great week we hated to see end.  Thank you Juanita and to Shannon for being such a great host and for welcoming us here.  We do plan to return some day.

Darrin & Marta (Indiana)

1'st Floor -- March

    Solitude and privacy appreciated. Would like to have had a working screen door and less construction.  Although we feel the ads were a bit misconceiving,  we did enjoy our time.  We will be in contact. 

     The following from an email sent after Alfred's stay:  " ... we did make the best of the situation and would recommend anyone to stay there, especially when the renovations are done.  I did get to meet some of your friends from across the street, they speak highly of you and Juanita. One young lady did an awesome job cleaning up the walkway  from the road to the beach, she must have collected 15 to 20 bags of debris.  And there was this older gentleman who enjoys fishing, he considers every day as Saturday.  I gave him 6 or 7 bags of whiting fish fillets, he mentioned I should have given to you.  He kept calling me Albert, he and his wife couldn't say enough good things about you . He usually wears a dark T-shirt and beige shorts with suspenders.

    You have some wonderful friends.  Fishing was great, golfing was great, weather was so warm, again thanks ... "

Alfred & Deborah (Fredericton, Canada)

2'nd Floor -- March

    Had a great two weeks here - nice apartment - a wonderful stretch of beach - Super - Beautiful weather -

    But no matter where in the world we go - 
    No matter how near or far,
       of all the wonderful things we know -
   The ocean is the star!

    This is my second time staying at the Melbourne Beach House and I will back again!
Carrie & Colleen (Missouri)

1'st Floor -- March

    Thank you for providing a wonderful retreat, sanctuary-like place.  The accommodations are as nice or nicer than they appear on your website.

    We had a week of beautiful weather, sunny and upper seventies for a high all week.  We found interesting cultural events - community theater, jazz on the deck - free at the Crown Plaza Hotel.  The wild life sanctuaries in the area are amazing, we found the beach out the front door a great place to walk. 

    Now we are headed back to Minnesota to finish the winter, but appreciate this perfect spot to experience a little bit of summer.

    Thanks again!

Tom & Jane (Minnesota)

2'nd Floor -- February

    This unique area is full of various rentals;  I've stayed in several during the years.   Melbourne Beach House is simply a distinctive property from all the rest.  Juanita and George have combined location, imagination and class to make the endearing beauty around here go a much longer way.  Thanks to both of you and back to the real world! (See February, 2006).

Richard (Wisconsin)

1'st Floor -- February

    We just had another wonderful month in "Paradise" at Melbourne Beach House.  We really love this location and are looking forward to February 2008.  The renovated executive apartment sounds so inviting.  Of course, we will enjoy the swing again.

    May you both have a wonderful and healthy year with lots of traveling experiences.

Bax & Mary Ellen (Indiana)

2'nd Floor -- January

    Thanks you for sharing your beach home with us!  We had the most peaceful, relaxing vacation we've ever experienced here at Melbourne Beach House.

    We enjoyed the sunrises each morning over the Atlantic, our long walks on the beach, the hours spent sunning ourselves from the deck and most of all the wonderful January weather we've had.  Sure beats those gray Indiana January days!

Norm & Bev (Indiana)

1'st Floor -- January

    Thank you for your help arranging the Beach House for me!  Even though I arrived very late in the evening, you made access to the Beach House smooth and easy.  I was delighted to find ice cubes and air.  You had everything that I wanted in your kitchen plus a comfy bed that was calling my name.

    I enjoyed the Beach House and the nearness of the Ocean.  The waves and the sand are so "Florida" and so relaxing,  What a joy!!!

    I wish you both a peaceful and blessed 2007.
