ABOUT THE HOME:
*** DIRECT-OCEANFRONT FLORIDA ESTATE/CHATEAU ***
Representing a new milestone in luxury five-star accommodations, "Chateau de la Mer" (Chateau on the Sea) is now available to you and your family or group.
Chateau de la Mer is a sparkling 9BR/6BA gated beachfront estate that boasts heated private oceanfront pool, private elevator, oceanfront hot tub and all the high-end luxury touches and finishes found only in the very finest oceanfront estates in America.
This exclusive oceanfront gated estate is nestled between sun-soaked Jensen Beach Florida and "America's Happiest Seaside City", Stuart FL. (Coastal Living Magazine, 2016 national award winner). The Chateau has never before been available to the public . We are proud to be associated with this Southeast Florida landmark, that sets a new standard in B.H.I.P. elegance and luxe vacation living. The home is situated on a private beach in a quiet residential area -- there are no condo high rises or hotel/resorts for miles . (No crowds, just a beach all to yourself & your group).
With 9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms (including several bedroom suites with private en-suite bathrooms), this stylish retreat is packed with features & toys to delight everyone in your family group, across all ages.
Luxury and elegance in flip flops? Absolutely! (This is seaside Florida, after all). 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! ("We stock heavy, so you can travel light") Except for the clothes on your back -- and perhaps a dinner jacket or elegant dress -- BHIP provides all you need for your turnkey beachfront vacation.
And you can't beat the price: At rates starting at less than $100 per night per bedroom, enjoy 5-star luxury amenities and accommodations at an affordable price (the proverbial champagne on a beer budget.) Note: This beach house is rented only to one party at a time; you will not be sharing the premises with strangers or unknown travelers.
Own a boat? Bring it! There's room to park your trailer, and plenty of public boat ramps nearby. RV? Room for that too, Park it right at the Chateau!
SAVE! Paradise need not hurt the wallet! The owner offers many discounts via the HomeAway/VRBO/Expedia platform: 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 -- by definition, the biggest discount of all).
About B.H.I.P. ---- Chateau de la Mer is one of several luxury five-star properties operated by Beach Houses in Paradise, the 20-year leader in offering five-star luxury, amenities & 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 beach house. (And at nightly rates starting less than $100 per private bedroom, just a fraction of the price you would pay at a beachfront hotel/resort)
REVIEWS: Since the Chateau has never been available to the public before, it's brand new, so there are few. So, read what others think about Beach Houses in Paradise right here on the VRBO platform: Hundreds and hundreds of five-star reviews for BHIP houses located in the same neighborhood: See VRBO/HomeAway property IDs 4568299, 4225514, 4151948, 4512067, 4160814 & dozens more.
The local area is spectacular: Chateau de la Mer is located just one mile north of famed 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") . . . and if that small-town homespun "old-fashioned charm" doesn't excite you, worry not: World-famous Palm Beach -- the shopping and cultural Mecca -- is less than a one- hour drive to the South. And some of the best restaurants in our area of S. Florida -- including the best oceanfront restaurant for 100 miles between Vero Beach and Palm Beach -- are located within walking distance -- less than a 1/4 mile away.
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 on VRBO/HomeAway include high chairs for little ones? Experiment with the "More Filters" search feature and see for yourself!) 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 like sand pails, bikes, cornhole, volleyball, kayaks, and horseshoes? 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.)
No hidden fees: Other vacation-rental companies nickel and dime you to death with surcharges such as pool-heating fees, fees to use shampoos & soaps, rental fees for kayaks, bikes & paddleboards, even a fee if you don't empty the refrigerator at the end of your stay(!). At BHIP, there are no hidden surcharges.

EVENTS & CELEBRATIONS:
Planning a modest event or small gathering at the home? Or is your rental in association with an event held at a nearby venue? We'd love to help! Event-related reservations are approved on a case-by-case basis. Please note that due to the pristine and delicate barrier-island environment, special restrictions may apply. (Additional COVID-19 restrictions may also apply)
Very important: Please inquire about your event BEFORE booking (to avoid paying the cancellation fee)
MORE THAN 13 ADULTS? Chateau de la Mer might be a tight fit. Please inquire before booking.
Nervous about alligators? Don't be: They don't exist in this part of Florida. (Gators can't survive near the beach in saltwater environments; they live only inland, where there is plenty of fresh water) At BHIP, both the river & ocean are salty.

A TREASURE CHEST OF DELIGHT:
There's even more fun to be had: This 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. (Complimentary beach-comber metal-detectors are provided, of course!)
HELP PRESERVE OUR PRISTINE AREA
The waters in & around the house are among the most biologically rich & environmentally sensitive in the entire U.S. Our owners avidly support local environmental groups, contributing millions in recent decades.
Help preserve our area:
* Don't approach dolphin, sea turtles & manatees (often seen near the end of the public docks in the area). These are protected species. Florida Fish & Wildlife marine patrols have big binoculars; they WILL arrest you.
* Be responsible with fishing tackle. Avoid leaving behind loose line, hooks & other tackle after a great day fishing. (Pelicans, egrets, heron and other birdlife get tangled in fish line or snagged by hooks . . . or by fish they've caught that are still hooked.)
* Do not litter (this includes urinating into the water, emptying alcohol/soda into the water, etc.)
