I promise you that staying at Pineapple Manor will be a great experience all around! You can expect a friendly and accomodating host, comfy and stylish decor and linens, a stocked kitchen, all the accessories you will need for a comfortable day at the beach, and a cool location - between the beach and the Indian River - near to plenty of beach accesses and some nice restaurants.
Pineapple Manor is the epitome of old Florida charm and comfort It is intimately sandwiched between the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. Mark and Kathy have worked hard to turn their historic home into 4(?) charming apartments that are meticulously maintained, cleverly decorated and stocked with absolutely every item you might need in the kitchen and bathroom, and even supplies fora day at the beach. Washer and drier are available for guest use. Each unit has comfortable seating on the porch to enjoy the lovely breeze and gardens. It truly is a gem and a good value. You will put it on your definite return list; its on ours.
The one bedroom unit we stayed in was exceptionally clean, well supplied with kitchen utensils and dinner ware for two. The furniture and bedding appeared to be almost new and not overly used or abused. The beach front was three to four blocks away and there was ample public parking if you didn't wNt to carry you beach supplies and decided to drive there. Mark provided beach chairs and umbrellas for yor use. There is a park across the street that has tables and benches to watch the sunset in the evening.
I wish we were coming to Melbourne more often. Pineapple Manor is a real getaway. My wife and I felt extremely comfortable there. Everything is extremely well taken care of and clean. Mark was very friendly and made sure to escort us into our dedicated parking spot. It has a Pineapple themed room, a quaint and cozy town, a beautiful ocean view 100 feet away (dolphins!)... This is hands down the best and most beautiful place to stay in the Melbourne/greater Melbourne area.
