We rented Krista‘s place for two weeks while our daughters were in summer camp right down the street at Riverside Theatre. We chose her home because of the proximity to the theater, the beach, and all of the downtown shops, and for this purpose, it did not disappoint! It is no more than a five minute walk to the beach and all of the upscale dining that Ocean Drive has to offer. In the opposite direction you find the theater, the art museum, the riverside café, dog parks, kayak rentals… The location is absolutely ideal. The inside of this adorable little townhome is so charming. It is an older home, complete with creaky floors… But it has been renovated beautifully and we found it to be incredibly clean. The beds were comfortable, and the living space perfectly accommodated the four people in our family and our small dog. It was too hot for us to utilize the backyard space, but I can imagine that in the winter and spring months it would be a pleasure to sit back there and look up at the blue Florida sky. Everything we needed, we found by searching through the cabinets and drawers of the home. I prepared dinners at the house and was never lacking in any supplies. But what made the stay so superior was the incredible host, Krista. She is super responsive and such a joy to work with. When we first arrived, we noticed those pesky ghost ants that Florida beach towns are known for, and within a couple of hours she had pest control come out and we never saw another ant the rest of our stay. When I went downstairs the first morning to make coffee and discovered that the coffee maker wasn’t working, she had a new one delivered from Target within hours. When I notified her that the beach chairs were looking a little rusty and moldy from the Florida humidity, she once again had brand new chairs sent over within hours. None of the concerns that I brought to her attention made our stay less enjoyable, but her response to my concerns made our stay so much more pleasant. Overall, this is a charming, quiet, clean home in an older, but completely safe community within walking distance of all the beach town attractions. If you are looking for a family and pet friendly stay in Vero beach, I highly recommend that you stay in one of Krista‘s properties… If for no other reason then to get an opportunity to meet the most incredible host. I have a feeling I will never have another VRBO experience quite as positive as this one.
