On the beach! The Coconut villa was a wonderful escape and met all of our expectations. Before arrival, Rob readily shared local recommendations and tidbits about the home, and during our stay he was quick to respond to any inquiry. Check-in was VERY easy and we immediately were able to relax. Our 7 year old and puppy were easily accommodated. There was plenty of space to unload our car whether in the garage or kitchen area and more than enough storage within the bedrooms and rest of the home once everything was unpacked. There was just the right amount of natural light where you felt refreshed without being exposed. And the oceanfront view from the primary bedroom was exactly what we wanted. I have to add that the water pressure in the showers was to die for! The house was well appointed with all of the necessary cookware and dishware, comfortable furniture, and even books and games. We took advantage of the DVD player on rainy days and felt right at home. The full-size refrigerator was perfect for our watermelon and beverages. We didn’t even need to use the dishwasher, but it was great to know it was there. Having the garage was perfect after a sandy day and allowed us to maintain the cleanliness of the property. A washer and dryer was a key requirement for us and both worked perfectly. Our neighbors in the villa next door were friendly and everyone we met locally made us feel at home. Definitely hoping we can return to Coconut villa with our other children in the near future!
This place is just so beautiful, both inside and out!
All the little details of the stairway, love the tile, all the fun art. But my favorite, coming up the stairs to the Master bedroom, and seeing the ocean out the balcony porch. We are moving into the state, and this has made the last month so much less stressful, having this beautiful and peaceful place to stay. Owner is fantastic to work with!!
This was a great condo that was steps to the beach.
The kitchen was well supplied and we enjoyed using the grill and hot tub. We were walking distance to shops and restaurants. It was a pleasure to stay there.
Perfect for our family!
Being steps from the beach was great! The Palms unit was spacious, well furnished and comfortable. We loved our week there, and hope to be back soon!
Heaven on earth!
Tom and I loved the Beach Bungalow! The villa was very clean and the whimsical decor was charming. The layout of the unit was perfect – and we really enjoyed the covered deck off of the Master Bedroom – a perfect place for cocktails in the evening and to watch the beautiful ocean waves come crashing down. Even the shower in the Master Bathroom was great! The Guest Information book gave wonderful suggestions as to where to eat and shop. The Beach Cafe was a hit for breakfast. I am already missing our daily walks on the beach. Many thanks for providing a wonderful place to get away from life for awhile.
Cute bungalow, I would live there. Just right size for me & mine!
I enjoyed my stay at this lovely bungalow. My family enjoyed our stay. They provide supplies. Chairs for the beach. Kids had small foam surf boards. The kitchen had all the supplies needed. Beach was across the street. Balcony view. Rooms were really nice. We enjoyed the hot tub. I love the easy feeling of Florida. As soon as I got home I was ready to go back. Thanks Rob, I’ll be back.
Beautiful townhouse for the beach get away!
My family and I had the pleasure of staying in the Coconut Villa on our summer trip home. From the first contact over email Rob and Ann were very professional, courteous, and informative. Having grown up in the area we were on a visit home but were looking for a place to stay near the ocean for the kids, and the Beach Bungalows delivered. The townhouse was incredibly clean, well appointed, with a full kitchen, hot tub out back, and amazing views of the ocean from the Master Bedroom balcony. We arrived a little early and were able to grab the beach chairs, umbrella’s and boogie boards and head over to the beach while the unit was cleaned, which was very much appreciated. Our family of 4 was very comfortable with everyone having adequate space to spread out. The location is perfect, directly across from the beach and within walking distance to several restaurants (gotta go get a slice from Bizarro’s) and bars on 5th Avenue. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone and everyone looking for an amazing alternative to staying in a hotel. Thank you Rob and Ann for everything, and I apologize for the time it took me to get this review done.
We arrived with our 3 college age children to an imaculate home. We were very impressed with the great condition of the property. The owners made us feel right at home and provided us with an incredible amount of information on what to do in the area. They also recommended where to dine and shop. All of their recommendations were right on. The patio, which we called the oasis, was just that. It was quiet and tropical and many naps were taken in the very comfortable hammock. The location was perfect for us. With the beach right across the street we could come and go as we pleased, the beach is beautiful and clean and the surf was great while we were there. the Starbucks located just a few steps away was a big plus. We were very happy and hope to return. Thanks for the great vacation!
Wonderful seaside villa. Spent a week in a 2 storey villa that was very comfortable and nicely appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the space and decor. It had a nice private patio with hot tub, hammock, which was my Grand-daughters favorite place to rock her baby to sleep. The kitchen was very nice and had everything in it to cook with so we did most of our eating at the Villa. The beach was very nice and just a few steps away from the front door. Shopping was very near and there is a nice park for the kids to play, a short walking distance away. The Villa came with everything you could think of so all you have to do is pack your clothes. We have found our little piece of heaven, so everytime we come to visit, this will definitely be our place to stay.

Fantastic seaside villa
Lovely spacious and very well appointed 2 storey villa just across quiet road from Indialantic beach. Had a really great week here with family (kids ages 9 & 11) who loved body boarding every day, on this beach and a few of the numerous other beautiful beaches within close reach. Great local food options within walking distance and short drive into Melbourne, which has great food, shops and attractive walkable downtown area . Easy access to Space Centre (50 mins). Would love to return, Rob and Anne were very helpful and friendly owners, thoroughly recommended! Best holiday ever said our kids!
Beach Bungalow – Best beach rental ever
I highly recommend the Beach Bungalows. This was probably the nicest beach rental we have ever stayed in and our dog, a big rescue lab, was welcomed which made it even better. The furniture was very comfortable and not your usual beach rental, can’t wait to get home to my own bed again furniture. The back garden was wonderful. It was private and very relaxing from soaking in the hot tub to resting and reading in the hammock. And the front deck was a great place to spend time with a cool beverage, chatting with family and admiring the great views of the ocean. I highly recommend this place for anyone, but especially those of you with dogs that vacation with you.
Beach Bungalow – Great time had by all!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa! It’s such a cozy place and we appreciate all the amenities – beach towels, toys (my granddaughter loved these), umbrellas, boogie boards, charcoal grill, well-stocked kitchen, etc. This really made our visit easy and fun. Ann was very accessible and helpful to us in becoming familiar with the Indialantic area. We visited Direct Seafood and purchased some delicious fresh fish and even tried some gator tail. My sister and I walked across the street and rented stand up paddle boards for our last day on the beach. Loads of fun! The week went by way too fast. Would love to come back again!
Better-than-Great! Didn’t want to leave!
This bungalow is an awesome place! Has everything you need for convenience and comfort. The view from the upstairs front deck can’t be beat. The owners are amazing to work with and I would highly recommend staying here!
The best place to do absolutely nothing!
Cannot say enough about how good a time we had. It was our dogs 1st trip to the ocean too. Much of our visit consisted of a whole lot of nothing. Sleep, run, beach, eat, repeat. It truly felt like home at The Banana. We can’t wait to come back again! Thank you Rob & Ann!

Charming, Super Clean Beach House Paradise (and dog-friendly too!)
This is the cleanest, most well outfitted vacation rental home that I have ever rented on VRBO. Everything is first class from the bed linens to the huge kitchen to the outdoor shower. We rented The Palms a one level vacation home which was very spacious and perfect for myself, my Mom and my dog. Rob and Ann are a dream to work with. Ann meet us on the first evening and gave us a tour of the house and told us where to eat and where to shop. Mom loved the calm garden view from the second living room and the restful view from the front window in the first living room and how clean The Palms was. I loved the outdoor shower and garage for my surfboard and proximity to the beach. And our dog loved that this area is dog friendly and that he had his own private garden to wander around in. And you can walk to everything, beach, bakery, surf shops, restaurants (on 5th Ave). Downtown Melbourne is worth an afternoon visit (7 minutes by car). We spent our week relaxing on the beach with a little retail therapy but the location of this home makes it easy to visit other nearby Space Coast sights by car. A definite find.
