Proudly offered by Beach Houses in Paradise, "Twin Beaches" consists of two side-by-side stunning ocean-to-river beach houses gleaming in the warm SE Florida sunshine. (A fantastic way to bring two or more groups together for a vacation / retreat / getaway)
Wear your t-shirt, shorts & flip-flops to the airport, because that's all you need pack for your Florida beach-house vacation --- We provide the rest! Travel light -- and live large -- with the fully stocked, meticulously maintained 5-Star-amenity properties of Beach Houses in Paradise
And not just two beach houses next door to each other ... two BEACHES, too: The warm Florida Atlantic Ocean on the back porch, and the pristine Indian River (complete with private dock) off the front driveway. Soak in sunrises *and* sunsets ... swim, paddleboard, snorkel or kayak on whichever side the water is best!
Situated directly ON the Atlantic Ocean, "Twin Pearls" combines two of our most popular beach houses into a single, convenient booking, and for cheaper than the price of booking each individually! For details and photos on each house, view the individual listing for each house: "As Good as it Gets" (property ID# 4145595) and "Heaven Can't Wait" (#4148187).
The property is one of several luxury five-star properties operated by Beach Houses in Paradise, the 15-year leader in offering five-star luxury, amenities and service in sunny beachfront settings. Read our reviews, and see how families and groups like your own are enjoying five-star experiences IN THEIR OWN HOUSE -- at nightly rates starting less than $100 per private bedroom -- just a fraction of the price you would pay at a beachfront hotel or resort! Note: Twin Pearls is rented only to one party at a time; you will not be sharing the premises with strangers or unknown travelers.
Why is "Ocean to river" so special? Easy: When you step off the back-porch oceanfront deck, you are walking onto your own private, Atlantic Ocean beach. Now, head on over to the front door. Walk 20 paces in the other direction. Now, you are on your own private dock on the mile-wide Indian River. A dock that's just a mile north of the St. Lucie inlet, which connects the river to the ocean. Fish (saltwater *or* freshwater). Surf. Paddleboard. Jetski. Snorkel. Scuba. Catch giant marlin just a few miles offshore, within view of your ocean-to-intracoastal home located on Hutchinson Island in Stuart FL, long regarded as the "Sailfish capital of the world". Enjoy our complimentary kayaks, paddle boards, surf boards, snorkeling gear, fishing gear, bicycles, metal detectors, the list goes on and on ... did we mention the free sunrises & sunsets?
Situated on a private, swimmable beach in a quiet residential area. There are no condos, high rises or large public beaches for miles: No crowds, just a beach all to yourself and your party. Just across the street are your own twin 200-foot-long deep-water private docks on the Indian River, offering some of the best fishing in the world, and stocked with all your favorite water toys and fishing gear. (Provided complimentary, of course).
Own a boat? Bring it! Moor it at one of your own two private docks! (or rent one at one of the many nearby providers, and park it at your dock for the duration of your stay!) There's even room to securely park up to 2 full-length RVs, right in front of the property!
Not only is the property situated in the most biodiverse marine environment in America (source: Florida Oceanographic Institute), but it's also located in sunny and warm Stuart FL, Winner of the "America's Happiest Seaside Town" award given annually by Coastal Living Magazine! (locals -- of a certain age that remember TV's "The Andy Griffith Show" -- proudly call Stuart the "Mayberry of Florida")

Nervous about alligators? Don't be: They don't exist in this part of Florida. (Gators can't survive near the beach in saltwater environments; they live only inland, where there is plenty of fresh water) At BHIP, both the river & ocean are salty.
ONE OF ONLY 60 BEACH-HOUSE PROPERTIES LIKE IT IN THE U.S.A:
A rare ocean pearl, the property is among the fewer than 60 beach houses in the entire United States that sit DIRECTLY ON THE OCEAN and also sit DIRECTLY ON A MILE-PLUS WIDE RIVER with private dock for fishing and water toys, and where the river empties into the ocean just a short mile away. Start every day with breakfast views of a glorious sunrise gently emerging above the peaceful ocean. Usher in each evening with mesmerizing vistas of golden-hued sunsets rippling across the majestic Indian River.
A NATURE-LOVER'S PARADISE:
The property sits at the southern terminus of the Indian River, the most biologically diverse estuary in all North America (according to marinelife samples taken by the Florida Oceanographic Society marine biologists in May 2015 ... samples taken just yards away from this home's dock.) From your dock oroceanfront deck, watch manatees, dolphins, and sea turtles frolic year-round. Birdlife abounds with ibis, egrets, herons, warblers, pelicans and more. And the fishing? Well, let's just say that while a Publix supermarket is conveniently located just a few blocks down the street, you'll never need to buy fish from the market during your stay.
A WATER WONDERLAND:
In addition to the private beach, enjoy your own private dock, complete with complimentary fishing equipment (fully-stocked rods, line & tackle), snorkeling gear, and even complimentary water toys like paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks , rafts and more. Not bringing your own boat or jetski? Rent from a location just a few hundred yards away from your own private dock!
A TREASURE CHEST OF DELIGHT:
And there's even more fun to be had: the house sits smack dab in the middle of the "Treasure Coast". To this very day, gold doubloons, pieces of eight and other spanish treasure still occasionally wash up along Hutchinson Island, especially following big storms. In fact, just two hundred yards away to the north of the beach house, the House of Refuge Museum showcases relics from prior shipwrecks, one of which -- the Georges Valentine wreck -- is a fun snorkeling experience and is close enough to swim to from the beach house! (Complimentary beach-comber metal-detectors are provided, of course!)
HELP PRESERVE OUR ENVIRONMENTALLY PRISTINE AREA
The waters in and around the beach house are among the most biologically rich and environmentally sensitive in the entire United States. The owners of the home have been financial supporters of local environmental groups for many, many years, with financial contributions into the 7 figures. Upon your arrival, you will notice and appreciate the extent to which exhaustive measures have been taken to preserve the pristine areas surrounding the home in a no-impact, leave-no-trace manner. ("Leave no trace": After you have enjoyed your stay, the beaches and waters surrounding the home should appear exactly as they appeared when you arrived. -- No footprints, no litter, no nothing -- it's as if you never visited)
Help preserve the natural beauty and sensitive ecosystem surrounding the home:
* Do not touch or approach dolphins, sea turtles and manatees (who swim near the end of the dock). These are protected species. The Florida Fish & Wildlife officers in their boats have powerful binoculars, and they WILL arrest you.
* Be responsible with your fishing tackle. Avoid leaving behind loose line, hooks and other tackle after a successful day fishing. (Pelicans, egrets, heron and other birdlife get tangled in fish line or snagged by hooks ... or by fish they've caught who still have a hook in their mouth.
* Please do not litter (this includes urinating into the water, emptying alcohol or soda into the water, and so on)
CAN I COMBINE A FLORIDA BEACH HOUSE VACATION WITH A DISNEY WORLD ORLANDO VACATION?
Absolutely. For those interested in combining a beach house experience with Mickey Mouse, Disney World, Universal, and all the other Orlando Resorts: It's a pleasant two-hour drive from the Ocean-to-River Beach House to Disney and Orlando, driving along the Florida Turnpike. (Avoid the Interstate). Many vacationing families in our beach-house community will spend a week bringing three (or four!) generations together in a florida beach house, then "spin off" the younger side of the family to Disney World for a few days. We've seen it first hand: And it may just be the best way EVER to combine a Florida Beach House vacation with an Orlando / Disney World / Universal / Mickey Mouse vacation!
WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY and MOTION-IMPAIRED ACCESSIBILITY:
Like most other ocean-to-river beach properties in this area, only the ground floor is available to wheelchairs and motion-impaired individuals. Reason: Florida building codes in this oceanfront area require that the living and sleeping areas of these homes be well over 12 to 18 feet above sea level, to withstand the surging waves and debris that hurricanes present. For these homes, this means that the ground-floor level contains only an enclosed two-vehicle parking garageGet the full listing »
