Description from owner

Description

Italian for "The sweet life", La Dolce Vita is an 8-bedroom, 5-bath European-style luxury pool home/villa which sits directly on the Atlantic Ocean, and directly across the street from the Indian River (with private dock).

Get everybody together at your own private beachfront luxury home, & live the sweet life. (LDV is especially well-suited for family reunions, groups of friends, and religious/corporate/group retreats)

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. (At BHIP, our motto is "We stock heavy, so you can travel light.")

Operated by Beach Houses in Paradise, enjoy rates starting at less than $100 per night per bedroom, 5-star luxury amenities, accommodations and an ON-the-beach location at a price you can afford. (It's like champagne on a beer budget!) Note: LDV is rented only to one party at a time; you will not be sharing the premises with strangers or unknown travelers.

With 8 bedrooms and 5 baths, 100 linear feet on both the ocean and bay/river, a big oceanfront relaxation deck (and separate observation/sundeck), plus riverfront dock, and more than 3600 square feet of bedrooms, bathrooms and living area, La Dolce Vita is among the largest and most luxuriously appointed ocean-to-river beach houses available in the USA. Moreover, this palace comfortably sleeps 16, or more with the provided rollaway beds and available "pop-up" bedrooms (think: sleeper sofas + portable privacy dividers + private flat-screen TV)

La Dolce Vita arrived to the vacation-rental market for the very first time only a few years ago. Already a high-end luxury beach villa, the majestic property was further upgraded and restored recently with all-new beds & furnishings, 4K UHD TVs, water toys, high-speed business-class wifi internet, & more.

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")

La Dolce Vita is one of the few BHIP homes that feature both a built-in heated pool & a private elevator (no more stairs!) Plus: With its huge double-oven kitchen & spacious open floor plan that can entertain up to a few dozen in the same room, and ample parking, this sparkling palace is one of our best-suited beach houses for small events & gatherings (Note: La Dolce Vita is *NOT* a party house)

SAVE! We offer many discounts: 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).

La Dolce Vita 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 a nature-preserve walkway that leads to 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)

About BHIP: La Dolce Vita is one of several luxury five-star properties operated by Beach Houses in Paradise, the 20-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!
