“Our Happy Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2008

We just had another wonderful Christmas week vacation at Oceanfront Cottages in Indialantic, Fl. We have traveled throughout the U.S., even Asia and Europe and this is our FAVORITE place to stay! The rooms are immaculate, extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. The setting is "old Key West" and completely charming. They also allow small dogs and therefore we were able to have our "best friend" with us. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the beautiful ocean and at night we loved the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach. The owner, Robert, is a most gracious and generous host, and we will always be grateful to him for being so kind to our visiting family. We will miss Oceanfront Cottages for the next 51 weeks and can't wait to return next Christmas.

Stayed December 2008, traveled with family

Oceanfront Cottages is located in Indialantic (SO close to Melbourne), Florida. This vacation spot is outstanding! They offer just four cottages whose spacious suites are fully equipped and offer a comfortable tropical paradise feel. The room decor is elegant and the bedding offers the best night sleep I have ever had!! They have a relaxing ambiance with pool and private hot tubs and the beach is just steps away .

If you are looking to just relax and get away from it all this is the place!

Matthew and I have lived in Florida our entire lives and were anxious to experience some place more exotic for our honeymoon. However, after paying for our wedding, we weren't able to swing a more exotic locale - so we turned to our own backyard and found Oceanfront Cottages. My mother had recommended it as she and her four sisters had a mini-family reunion there the previous summer and after speaking with Robert on the phone, Matthew and I were sold!

We enjoyed six wonderful nights at Oceanfront and split our stay between two rooms: the Havana and the St. Thomas Suite. The Havana is the smallest room at the Cottages, but so comfortable and with lots of character. The furnishings are modern, comfortable, and very clean. My favorite touch was the stained-glass mosaic bathroom door. SO beautiful. The St. Thomas Suite is extremely spacious with a full kitchen - though we didn't cook a thing. The Cottages are in walking distance of SO many wonderful restaurants and even though we had a car on the property, we didn't use it once during our stay. The local restaurants within walking distance offer something for every taste: there's a delicious NY style pizza place, burritos, Italian, sushi, Mediterranean, a fabulous seafood place, Cold Stone Creamery, Starbucks.

Both the Havana and St. Thomas have balconies overlooking the beach. The view is absolutely amazing; though the Cottages are located across the street from the beach, as you stand on the balcony, the beach feels as though it's in your backyard. Even in the middle of the summer, the breeze is heavenly on the balcony. It's a nice place to relax and enjoy a glass of champagne. Both rooms also come with private balcony hot tubs, one of our favorite features. These hot tubs were so amazing - very clean, hot, and comfy!

The pool area is like a tropical paradise. The fountain and palm tree canopy are its best features. Though there were other occupants during our stay, Matthew and I still felt like we were the only ones there. The Cottages just have that ultra-private feel to them - which is absolutely perfect for a honeymooning couple.

The rooms come with very modern, large, flat-screen televisions and come equipped with DVD players - so, it was nice to open the curtains and sliding glass doors so we could hear the ocean, snuggle up in the very comfortable bed, and watch a movie together.

Matthew and I have since moved away from Melbourne, Florida to the UK. We are already looking forward to returning to visit our families - and when we do, rather than staying with our families, we want to return to the Oceanfront Cottages, our favorite spot in all of Brevard County.

Oceanfront Cottages is one of those special places that you have to pinch yourself at your good fortune in discovering it! The suites, each with a view of the beach, are beautifully appointed with antiques and high quality furniture. The kitchens are well equipped. Maintenance is perfect. The beds are the best anywhere, even home. We have stayed there three weeks at a time for the past two years and are looking forward to a repeat this year.
The property is well located, has good parking, and easy access to the beach. The boardwalk is a pleasant way to stroll and visit with an interesting mix of people--surfers, Iowa Farmers, Europeans, and local folks. Indialantic is a quiet beach town with several great restaurants near the property, as well as being very close to Melbourne which has good shopping and more wonderful restaurants.
We have been impressed with the relaxed and welcoming style of management. The owner, Robert, is a gracious host who has created a place of rare peace and beauty. We are counting the days until our next visit.

  • Liked — Comfort and convenience of guests is most important.
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything!

How do I get to live here forever? This property could be in any exotic location in the world. It has a feeling of the Carribean mixed with the South Pacific.
I just added another night to my already 10 booked nights and still feel like this is just not enough time spend on this exceptional property.
This is THE quintessential beach experience.

  • Liked — really clean

It was our honeymoon dream! We were a little skeptical about staying somewhere that we found on-line, but it was better than we could have imagined! We stayed in the Cayman Suite, and can't wait to stay in the others some day as well. There are several reasons why we are sure to stay again. Our key reasons being:

LOCATION: Great! Small town Indialantic was filled with kind and caring people, surrounded by gift and surf shops, and great restaurants. Oceanfront Cottages location is great for day trips to Cocoa Beach, historic downtown Melbourne, the Kennedy Space Center, Merritt Island-the list is endless! Each cottage is very private, and the pool is it's own little oasis surrounded by palm trees. The beach, which is only steps away from the cottages, is absolutely beautiful! It is pretty private, usually only the locals (if anyone at all) were the only people besides us on the beach. We were also lucky enough to witness God's amazing creation when we woke up one morning to walk the beach at sunrise and witnessed a sea turtle burying her eggs right in front of the cottages. The experience was amazing!

COMFORT: We were spoiled by all of the furnishings, which were all top of the line. After returning home from our stay in the Cayman Suites, we have not slept nearly as well. The bed at the cottage was SO comfortable, as well as the awesome feather pillows and soft linens. Everything in the cottage was so clean, and updated. The kitchen was another unexpected yet pleasant surprise. Provide your own food and you can really whip up a great meal with all of the appliances and cookware available.

ART: The cottages have little details everywhere that make it a great stay for artists and art lovers like ourselves. There is a picture perfect snapshot everywhere you look, outside and inside the cottages. From the view looking out from the balconies, glass mosaics on the main cottage doors, to the colorful tile window frames. A lot of thought and hard work has obviously been put into each cottage to make them the gem that they are.

We are so grateful to Robert and the other staff for making our honeymoon stay so pleasant. It's the kind of rare find that you almost want to keep to yourself. What an outstanding stay!
