Discover Beautiful Melbourne Beach, Florida

Close to Orlando and its many attractions, but located on a quiet, pristine stretch of Atlantic oceanfront, Melbourne is the perfect home base from which to explore and enjoy everything the Orlando area has to offer, or just to relax in our luxury accommodations, where we can help see to your every need.

Melbourne Beach is located along Florida’s Space Coast, a 72-mile stretch of coastline that is home to the Kennedy Space Center and many rocket launches. It’s not hard to time your visit to coincide with one of these spectacular events, and seeing a rocket blast off into outer space can be the perfect way to cap off a day of wonder and excitement at the Disney or Universal resorts, or any of the other fabulous nearby attractions.

Melbourne is set beside the Indian River Lagoon, offering beach getaways, fishing expeditions, golf packages, snorkeling excursions, pleasure boating, and just about every kind of outdoor activity you can think of. Melbourne is even one of the few top-shelf surfing destinations on the Atlantic coast, beloved by local surfers. There are miles of pristine beaches to enjoy during the day, or even to take a romantic walk through the surf at night, caressed by the warm tropical breeze.

Historic downtown Melbourne also has a lot to offer, with tons of great shopping and restaurants to enjoy, both in and around the town. During the year, your visit might line up with some of the fun annual festivals hosted by the town, including the Arts Festival, Filmmaker’s Festival, Aviation Day, and Oktoberfest.

Orlando: A Hundred Destinations in One

There is a long list of exciting recreational and cultural destinations around Orlando, enough to keep anyone busy for the rest of their life! Here are some of the top attractions, some you are probably familiar with, and some you might never have heard of:

Walt Disney World

People come from all over the globe to visit Disney World, and with good reason. Covering over 25,000 acres, the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot Center and Hollywood Studios are world-class destinations. Walt Disney World also boasts two water parks, three golf courses, 34 separate resorts & hotels, and countless dining & entertainment areas. It’s almost impossible to experience everything Disney has to offer, at least in a single trip, and with so much on offer, an extended stay in our luxurious Melbourne, FL vacation rentals might be just the ticket to help you stretch out your enjoyment over several days.


Universal Studios Orlando

Disney isn’t the only entertainment studio which has made its home in Orlando. Universal Studios has created the second-most-visited major theme park at Universal Orlando, including Universal CityWalk, Universal Studios Florida, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay with thrilling rides and captivating entertainment galore. 

If the treasure trove of family fun and excitement at Disney and Universal STILL aren’t enough to satisfy you, we’ve got good news! There is much more to see and discover all around the Orlando area.


The Wheel at ICON Park is a 400-foot-high observation wheel that will lift you up above the city of Orlando and give you a view of Disney, Universal, and the entire city from inside a safe and private capsule. ICON park has other exciting rides, and is the home of Madame Tussauds Orlando Wax Museum. Relax after your visit with many of the wonderful dining options offered in the park.

International Drive

Orlando’s International Drive provides all the food, fun, and entertainment you could ever need without having to set foot inside any of the theme parks, although why wouldn’t you? Sometimes called the Las Vegas Strip of Orlando, you can play mini golf, tour a chocolate factory, race go-karts, or even jump onto some indoor skydiving. When it’s time to eat, you will find all your favorite restaurants here, and plenty more waiting to be discovered.

SeaWorld Aquatica and Water Parks

While Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are top destinations for water slides and water rides, they aren’t the only places around to dip your feet in the water. SeaWorld Aquatica Orlando makes a splash by combining numerous water rides and attractions with the animal encounters that SeaWorld is known for. You can also visit nearby Discovery Cove, an all-inclusive day resort that offers swimming with dolphins, snorkeling with tropical fish, feeding exotic birds, or just relaxing on the beach.

Harbor Island Beach Club Vacation Rentals

Just steps from the beach or river, our spectacular villas at the exclusive Harbor Island Beach Club will be painstakingly curated to provide an upscale, luxury experience for you and your family. While the breathtaking views and lush tropical landscaping are enough to take your breath away on their own, inside each property you will be treated to our trademark designer aesthetic and décor, sparing no expense for the absolute best in coastal escapes.

Harbor Island is the newest addition to our portfolio of Florida vacation homes, meaning that once completed, you will have access to the very latest and greatest menu of accommodations and amenities.

Our luxury villas are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, giving you the ability to pick and choose down to the smallest detail exactly what you want in your vacation home experience. Each villa offers 4-8 bedrooms, open-concept common spaces like living and dining rooms, private, heated pools & patios, and special features like theme bedrooms, movie theaters, arcades, and more.

Villatel’s exclusive gated communities also offer a number of amenities to complete the experience and make you feel right at home. Upon completion of construction, Harbor Island Beach Club will feature a resort-style pool, riverfront cabanas, an expansive marina (park your boat there if you like!), bike trail, and exquisite landscaping & scenery.
