Rustic 1929 wood house in Downtown Melbourne. Only a hop skip and a jump to shopping, restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Two bedrooms with kitchen and living room. Short 5 min drive (20 min bike ride) to the beach.

The space

Cute and cozy wood house built in 1929. Two bedrooms with kitchen and living room area. Old Florida charm with fruit trees, tropical plants, and herb/vegetable garden boxes on property. Besides kitchen appliances and AC, house has been mostly stripped down to its original 1929 bones. Original claw foot bath tub.

Update for 2017: House now has wireless internet, Smart RokuTv, and a Stereo/turntable with some vintage vinyl.

It has been a great experience hosting on Airbnb this last year. We like to think we provide a unique place to stay in a great location for a very reasonable price. We have hosted great guests from all over the world. As much as we try, we have learned you can't please everyone all the time.
Just to be perfectly clear. The pics and description are accurate. This house, is a small old wooden Florida house. It is not a luxury/modern house. It is a rustic 1929 house in Downtown Melbourne. Read the description, read the reviews, look at the pics.

The coolest thing is how not Florida this cabin feels. I was transported to another time and place and being so close to historic downtown added to that. It has everything one needs and is safe, quiet and cozy. It's hard to find old places with such character in FL anymore. Now I know I don't have to leave the state to feel like I left FL. People in the town are friendly too. Ian is a great communicator and host. I would definitely stay here again!

Ian's place is adorable and excellently located! More spacious than expected (though not large - this is a beach cottage, not a McMansion), equipped with all necessities, and tidy. We had a great time walking to downtown Melbourne and checking out funky (and cheap!) thrift stores, Hell'n Blazes Brewing (which has free shuffleboard), and the no-frills but delicious Seafood Station. The beach is a short drive, but for native Floridians, we appreciated the value of a cute and eclectic downtown over super close proximity to water. Ian communicated with us promptly and efficiently, and the house was a great value. The only downside is that I had such a good time, I want to pack up my life and move to Melbourne!

This place is gorgeous. If you're taller than 5'10 the shower can be a little awkward but the affordable price, cleanliness, and great location more than makes up for it. The beds are comfy and there's a turntable with a nice selection of records.

Great price for a rental house. No issues with neighbors or any part of the place.

Great location, just a couple blocks from Main Street but very quiet by the house. Good place, has everything you need including a very simple kitchen. Ian is a very flexible and communicative host. Would definitely recommend this spot or even stay here again if I was in Melbourne.

Nice property close to downtown Melbourne. Owner is very reasonable and check in/out was quite convenient. Would recommend for anyone coming for a weekend trip or vacation to Melbourne.
