The Windemere Inn by the Sea, what a beautiful Florida place to be, is a Caribbean style Bed and Breakfast with 11 rooms off of A1A. Luxury oceanfront accommodations located east of Melbourne across the 192 Causeway on a barrier island facing the beautiful Atlantic ocean. We are located on a Barrier Island, just 6 miles from Melbourne International Airport, or 65 miles from Orlando International Airport. The Kennedy Space Center is just 37 miles to our North, and Vero Beach is 34 miles to our South. Between those two points, you will find 72 miles of Sun Drenched Beaches known as the Space Coast. Grab a beach chair, and walk to Windemere Inn’s own uncrowded beach (winning awards as one of our nations cleanest beaches year after year). If you’d like to venture a little further out, the Sebastian Inlet State Park and Recreation Area is a short drive to the South. The many Theme Parks of Orlando are only an hour and a half away.
Eleven elegant guest rooms with private baths, 4 with jetted tubs, some with private balconies overlooking the ocean await our guests. Come to relax and be pampered from our beautiful, private beach to our licensed massage therapist. Beach chairs, umbrellas and towels are provided for you and lunch can be delivered to you on the beach. Concierge services from restaurant recommendations to golf reservations are available.
