Welcome to Mark & Murphy's Green Paradise! This property is "green" in more ways than one: It sits on a well-shaded, beautifully landscaped lot that's nearly one acre in size and features a completely private, fenced-in backyard. The home is solar-powered and Tesla-friendly (if you have an electric car, you will be welcome to charge during your stay).

The words I hear the most from guest when they leave: Beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, and safe.

Murphy is a sweet but shy Weimaraner who may be on the premises during your stay. Your well-behaved, quiet, housebroken, dog-friendly dog is welcome for an additional fee of $15 per dog per night (this will be charged after you book), but please message me before booking so we can make sure your dog(s) will be a good fit here.

Please note that dogs CANNOT be left unattended on the property; You must be here with them - or they with you - at all times.

No cats, sorry. I'm allergic and Murphy is not a big fan.

Your room is furnished with an extremely comfortable queen bed, fitted with bamboo sheets that are so comfortable, several guests have asked me where I found them because they want to buy them for their own beds. The room also has a 43" TV with access to both live TV through my SlingTV account and hundreds of additional shows and movies through my Amazon Prime account. You are welcome to access any streaming services you already subscribe to (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) as well.

In addition to your private room and bathroom, you will have full access to my brand new kitchen (remodeled in 2019) and other shared areas of the home where you are free to relax. All I ask is that you clean up after yourself if you do any cooking. Other shared areas include: a family room, Florida room (sun room), laundry room, game room with a pool table and pinball machine, a large fenced in backyard, and a beautiful pool.

The property is ideal for 1-2 guests, but I do have two couches available if you have a third person in your party. A third guest will add $25 per night to your cost.

Our interaction with you can be as much or as little as you desire. I have a home office, so I am usually here, but Murphy and I generally keep to ourselves. Murphy will not be left alone in the house any time you are here. I have lived in the area since 2003 and am happy to provide local tips and insights.

Conveniently located just south of Downtown Melbourne and backing up to Crane Creek Preserve, this property is very quiet and offers substantial privacy. People who have lived in this area for years often comment that they never knew this hidden gem of a neighborhood was here.

Our home is less than one mile from Florida Tech, with Downtown Melbourne just a 5-minute drive away, and the beautiful Indialantic beach only a couple miles farther, across the causeway.

You will need a car (or Uber) to get to most places, as my home is all the way at the back of the neighborhood, about .7 miles from the entrance.

Some of the common areas of the house (family room & game room) have doggie-cams. There are security cameras outside the house as well, including a Ring doorbell.

Looking for an entire place instead of a shared home? Check out my other two listings:

Riverview Studio: An efficiency unit located in Downtown Melbourne -

Riverview Blue: A 1 bedroom unit located on the second floor of the same Downtown Melbourne building -

I started using Airbnb as a guest, mostly travelling for SCUBA diving trips, pickleball tournaments, and spring training baseball games. I enjoy meeting new people and I loved the concept of Airbnb so much that I decided to become a host myself, so I opened the guest room in my home to fellow travelers.

After about a year of positive experiences as a host, a friend and I purchased a historic quadplex in Downtown Melbourne and completely renovated two of the units for Airbnb. Whether you are looking for a private room in a shared house with a beautiful yard, or an entire stylish apartment in a convenient downtown location, I've got a space for you.
