Never before available to the public, La Dolce Vita arrived to the vacation-rental market for the very first time in 2016.

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 the only home available from Beach Houses in Paradise that features both a built-in heated pool and a private elevator. (no more stairs!) Plus: With its huge double-oven kitchen and spacious open floor plan that can entertain up to a few dozen in the same room (see pictures), and ample parking, this sparkling palace is one of our best-suited beach houses for small events and gatherings (Note: La Dolce Vita is *NOT* a party house)
With 6+ bedrooms and 4 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 3000 square feet of bedrooms, bathrooms and living area, La Dolce Vita is among the largest and most luxuriously appointed ocean-to-river beach houses we currently offer. Moreover, this palace comfortably sleeps 16 across 6 different private "lock the door" bedrooms (including kids bunk beds room with room for 6 kids or small adults), plus additional provided rollaway beds and available "pop-up" bedrooms (think: sleeper sofas + portable privacy dividers + private flat-screen TV)
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, inflatable rafts, fishing poles & tackle, metal detectors, & more)

Otros aspectos destacables
ONE OF ONLY 60 BEACH HOUSES LIKE IT IN THE U.S.A:
La Dolce Vita is among the fewer than 60 beach houses in the entire United States that sit DIRECTLY ON THE OCEAN and also sit DIRECTLY ON A MILE-PLUS WIDE RIVER with private dock for fishing and water toys, and where the river empties into the ocean just a short mile away. Start every day with breakfast views of a glorious sunrise gently emerging above the peaceful ocean. Usher in each evening with mesmerizing vistas of golden-hued sunsets rippling across the majestic Indian River.
A NATURE-LOVER'S PARADISE:
This Ocean-to-River Beach House sits at the southern terminus of the Indian River, the most biologically diverse estuary in all North America (according to marinelife samples taken by the Florida Oceanographic Society marine biologists in May 2015 ... samples taken just yards away from this home's dock!) From the dock, tiki hut, or oceanfront deck, watch manatees, dolphins, and sea turtles frolic year-round. Birdlife abounds with ibis, egrets, herons, warblers, pelicans and more. And the fishing? Well, let's just say that while a Publix supermarket is conveniently located just a few blocks down the street, you'll never need to buy fish from the market during your stay!
A WATER WONDERLAND:
In addition to the private beach, enjoy your own private dock adjacent to tiki-hut entertainment deck, complete with complimentary fishing equipment (fully-stocked bait & tackle), snorkeling gear, and even complimentary water toys like paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks , rafts and more. (For those that wish to bring their own boat and/or jetskis, access is easy: Trailer to the public boatramp a mile away, and park your watercraft at your own private dock during your entire stay. There's even room for your trailer in the ample parking area provided directly in front of the beach house). Of course, boats, jetskis, and windsurfing rigs are also available locally.
A TREASURE CHEST OF DELIGHT:
And there's even more fun to be had: the Ocean-to-River Beach House sits smack dab in the middle of the "Treasure Coast". To this very day, gold doubloons, pieces of eight and other spanish treasure still occasionally wash up along Hutchinson Island, especially following big storms. In fact, just two hundred yards away to the north of the beach house, the House of Refuge Museum showcases relics from prior shipwrecks, one of which -- the Georges Valentine wreck -- is a fun snorkeling experience and is close enough to swim to from the beach house! (Complimentary beach-comber metal-detectors are provided, of course!)
HELP PRESERVE OUR PRISTINE AREA
The waters in and around the beach house are among the most biologically rich and environmentally sensitive in the entire United States. The owners of the home have been financial supporters of local environmental groups for many, many years, with financial contributions into the 7 figures. Upon your arrival, you will notice and appreciate the extent to which exhaustive measures have been taken to preserve the pristine areas surrounding the home in a no-impact, leave-no-trace manner. ("Leave no trace": After you have enjoyed your stay, the beaches and waters surrounding the home should appear exactly as they appeared when you arrived. -- No footprints, no litter, no nothing -- it's as if you never visited)
Help preserve the natural beauty and sensitive ecosystem surrounding the home:
* Do not touch or approach dolphins, sea turtles and manatees (who swim near the end of the dock). These are protected species. The Florida Fish & Wildlife officers in their boats have powerful binoculars, and they WILL arrest you.
* Be responsible with your fishing tackle. Avoid leaving behind loose line, hooks and other tackle after a successful day fishing. (Pelicans, egrets, heron and other birdlife get tangled in fish line or snagged by hooks ... or by fish they've caught who still have a hook in their mouth.
* Do not litter (this includes urinating into the water, emptying alcohol or soda into the water, and
Absolutely no smoking.
After fun in the ocean or the river, please use our outdoor showers to rinse off sand before re-entering home.
Minimum age of person responsible: 25 (Individual providing payment and responsible for home must be minimum 25 years of age and provide Government-Issued ID at check-in)
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: The home is very popular for family vacations and family reunions. Our posted maximum occupancy assumes there will be some number of children/teens using the bunk-beds bedroom, which easily sleeps 5+ kids/teens. The "adults only" maximum occupancy is lower (by 5). If you are considering a stay with a large number of adults, PLEASE INQUIRE BEFORE BOOKING.
ABSOLUTELY NO UNAUTHORIZED PARTIES OR EVENTS!
The home lies in a very fragile, environmentally-protected preserve, accessible only by a narrow road. In the event of an unauthorized event or house party, POLICE WILL INTERVENE, ALL GUESTS WILL BE FORCED TO VACATE, AND POWER AND UTILITIES MAY BE CUT TO THE HOME.
