Description from owner

Description

Latin for "Seize the Day", Carpe Diem is the stunning Direct Oceanfront & Riverfront SE Florida beach house that helps you seize the day ... and in every way. Carpe Diem is outfitted with 4K TVs, water toys, oceanfront hot tub, high-speed business-class wi-fi Internet & more.

At 7 bedrooms & 6 baths, 100 linear feet on both the ocean and river, giant oceanfront and riverfront entertainment decks, and more than 3000 square feet of bedrooms, bathrooms and living area, Carpe Diem is a luxuriously appointed ocean-to-river beach house, perfect for family vacations /reunions, & religious/corporate/group retreats.

Wear your t-shirt, shorts & flip-flops to the airport, because that's all you need 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")

At rates starting at less than $100 per night per bedroom, enjoy 5-star luxury amenities and accommodations at an affordable price. (It's like champagne on a beer budget.) Note: Carpe Diem is rented only to one party at a time; you will not be sharing the premises with strangers.

"Carpe Diem" is situated on a private beach in a quiet residential area -- no condos, high rises or public beaches for miles. (No crowds, just a beach all to yourself & your group). The Atlantic Ocean is right off your back porch. And 15 paces from your front door is your own 200-foot-long private dock on the Indian River, offering some of the best fishing in the world, & stocked with all your favorite water toys. (complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, snorkel gear, bicycles, fishing poles & tackle, & more)

Own a boat? Bring it! Moor it at your own private dock, and there's even room to park your trailer. (Boat ramp just 1 mile away). RV? Room for that too!

HEATED SWIMMING POOL! Looking for a pool? How about 3? (!!) While the ocean and river are fun, some swimmers still want more: With your stay of 1 week or longer, the owner includes free complimentary passes to 3 resort-style pools at the nearby Ocean Club at the Marriott Hutchinson Island Resort (includes golf+tennis+fitness). The Marriott is located just 1 mile north of the home.

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")

SAVE! Paradise need not hurt the wallet / pocketbook. We offer many discounts: Military, educators, civil service, rescue & law enforcement, medical & more. Active or retired. Even Florida residents save $ (But if you are age 50+, enjoy our SENIOR discount -- the biggest discount of all).

About BHIP -- Carpe Diem is one of several luxury five-star properties operated by Beach Houses in Paradise, the 20-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 nightly rates starting less than $100 per private bedroom -- just a fraction of the price you would pay at a beachfront hotel or resort.

ALL-INCLUSIVE / EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED: From bicycles to beach blankets, from towels to toilet paper, and all points between. (Did you know that fewer than 25% of the Florida listings include high chairs for little ones? Many vacation rentals don't even provide you a full supply of toilet paper (!) or such basics as towels, bed linens, toiletries, paper goods or even cooking essentials like salt, pepper, spices, oils, and other basic staples. And can you imagine arriving to your beach vacation rental, only to discover that there are no coolers, ice, beach chairs, beach towels, beach blankets, umbrellas and beach toys? Why waste the first day of your precious vacation -- or more money -- shopping at the local Wal-Mart? Instead, book a Beach House in Paradise and begin relaxing the ~moment~ you arrive. (We even pre-heat hot tubs and pools, and put out the bathrobes & towels so your relaxing beach vacation can start the moment you arrive.)
