  • Nearest town: Melbourne Beach
  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $275/night

It sits along 21 miles of coastline dedicated to sea turtle conservation, protecting the nesting habitats of loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles. While it’s near the refuge, it’s also close to a mangrove swamp and beachside paths where you can surf and kayak or hop on either a paddleboard or bicycle.

Since the owners live nearby and are avid surfers, they’re happy to give low-key lessons to guests. Just message them in advance if you want to schedule some beach time (or need advice with anything else nearby.) It’s also one of the more affordable treehouses in Florida for a large group, especially give how close it is to the beach.
