☀ "As Good as it Gets" Ocean-2-River ON [email protected] "America's Happiest Seaside City"

Located in: Stuart
Wear your t-shirt, shorts & flip-flops to the airport, because that's all you need bring for your Florida beach-house vacation . . . We provide the rest. Travel light -- and live large -- with the fully-stocked, 5-Star-amenity properties of Beach Houses in Paradise. (At BHIP, our motto is "We stock heavy, so you can travel light")

Never before available to the public, the original & iconic Ocean-to-River Florida Beach House -- "As Good as it Gets" -- recently arrived to the vacation-rental market for the first time. The home shines bright like an ocean pearl, upgraded & renovated with all-new appliances, 4K TVs, water toys, high-speed business-class wifi Internet, oceanfront hot tub, & more.

"As Good as it Gets" is situated on a private 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 group). The Atlantic Ocean is right off your back porch. And 15 paces from your front door is your own 300-foot-long deep-water private dock on the Indian River, offering some of the best fishing in the world, and stocked with all your favorite water toys. (complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, snorkel gear, bicycles, boogie boards, fishing gear, metal detectors, & more)

The home is one of several luxury five-star properties operated by Beach Houses in Paradise, the 15-year leader in offering 5-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 a fraction the price of a beachfront hotel or resort!

SWIMMING POOLS! Looking for a pool? How about 3? (!!) With your stay of 1 week or longer, the owner includes FREE complimentary passes to 3 resort-style pools at the nearby Ocean Club @ the Marriott Hutchinson Island Resort (includes golf+tennis+fitness)

Watch the video: View our 'virtual tour' video for the latest visuals of the home, both inside & out. How to view: Check the photo gallery; the video appears among the first few images.

SAVE! We offer many discounts via the HomeAway/VRBO/VR platform: Military, educators, civil service, rescue & law enforcement, medical & more. Active or retired. Even Florida residents save $$. (But Seniors age 50+ get the biggest discount of all).

Own a boat? Bring it! Moor it at your own private dock, and there's even room to park your trailer. RV? room for that too!

Not only is the home situated in the most biodiverse marine environment in America (source: Florida Oceanographic Institute), but it's also located in 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.



This precious ocean jewel 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.



This Ocean-to-River Beach House 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 the dock, tiki hut, or oceanfront 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!



In addition to the private beach, enjoy your own private dock adjacent to tiki-hut entertainment deck, complete with complimentary fishing equipment (fully-stocked bait & tackle), snorkeling gear, and even complimentary water toys like paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks , rafts and more. If you're not bringing your own, boats & jetskis are available for rent just a few hundred yards away from your dock.



And there's even more fun to be had: The home 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. 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)



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.

* Do not litter (this includes urinating into the water, emptying alcohol or soda into the water, and so on)



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 first0hand: 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!



Although the house is available for small-scale and modest events, it is NOT a party house. The area surrounding the home is environmentally fragile, and cannot safely withstand more people than the posted maximum occupancy of the home itself. Further, owing to turtle-nesting season and other environmental concerns, there are extensive restrictions and regulations that restrict or forbid lighting and noise on the beach area. If you want to have a big party near the beach, consider these nearby alternatives: The Marriott Hutchinson Island Resort has ample facilities for large events, and The House of Refuge has a smaller room that it rents out to small-to-medium-size events.



Like most other ocean-to-river beach homes 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 our home, this means that the ground-floor level contains only an enclosed two-vehicle parking garage. To enter the primary living areas on Level 2, one must climb stairs. This second level contains kitchen, dining, living room/family room, bathroom, plus one partionable bedroom, with its own private TV and private oceanfront views. To reach bedrooms on level 3, another set of stairs must be climbed. Finally, to reach the highest level 4 -- an indoor/outdoor under-roof observation-deck platform with 360-degree views -- one must climb an almost 90-degree vertical ladder.
