We are extensive travellers and always strive to find the place with a local feel. From the good-morning welcome from Iza and Orzo, Iza's four-legged ambassador, to the locals offering greetings on the short walk to the beach or convenience store for morning coffee, we were definitely living with the locals. Iza provided numerous suggestions on things to do, places to visit, and how to get there.
Initial impression upon arrival was that we had returned to the 60's, for this is a traditional six-room motel with furniture to match. It was perfect for our way of travelling. The rooms are exceptionally clean with an optional full kitchen that had everything we needed to cook with. We enjoyed our morning coffee and happy hour cocktails outside at our little table and chairs...it doesn't get any better than that!
If crowds and busy nightlife are your thing, then Melbourne Beach is likely not a good fit for you. If you want to sit and watch wave after crashing wave, surfers riding those waves, or soaring brown pelicans and scrambling sandpipers, you will enjoy the area.
