Short Term Vacation Rentals Near Sebastian

By Steven Skelley and Thomas Routzong

Married couple Glenn Powell and Scott Kimberly were vacationing in Florida when a friend drove them to the small, historic town of Roseland just outside of Sebastian. They saw a property that was once owned by the Goodrich family – an iconic name in the rubber industry. Glenn and Scott fell in love with the riverfront compound and were soon making plans to leave their Georgia home to embrace the old Florida way of life…but with modern amenities!

“We had a vision in our minds of what Florida should be like. We had visited the big cities where everything was built up in every available space and that just wasn’t Florida to us. When we found this property on the riverfront, with a view of the railroad bridge, ancient oak trees covered in Spanish moss, fruit trees and the 1920s era architecture, we felt like we were in the Florida we had always envisioned,” Glenn told us.

We asked Scott what atmosphere or vibe they want their guests to experience.

“This place is so relaxing, so different from other Florida experiences, that we just hope our guests come and embrace the peace and tranquility here. Just embrace it and enjoy it,” he said.

Roseland is a charming town where many streets are still unpaved. You will even find baskets of mangoes in residents’ yards beside signs reading “free mangoes.”

Henry Flagler’s railroad brought a depot and water tower to Roseland in the 1890s. Some of the structures date back to the early 1900s including the Roseland Community Center which is a short stroll from Glenn and Scott’s rentals along a sandy road.

Somehow, Glenn and Scott have taken a historic structure and property and maintained the historic charisma but equipped it with all the modern conveniences.

We stayed in Glenn and Scott’s Poolside Cabana. It was once a carriage house. Now, it is the ultimate in air conditioned, beautifully and tastefully decorated comfort. The huge 1928 era swimming pool rests irresistibly just out the door inviting guests in for a refreshing clothing optional dip.

If you are looking for a short term vacation rental with an old Florida feel where you can embrace peace and tranquility, this is the place.
