I searched high and low for reviews on this location and everything I found was positive and still I was skeptical. The photos do not do it justice! It Was a fantastic retreat. It was like entering another world. If I could live there I would. The attention to detail, not only in the rooms, but over the entire property was amazing. The owners do a fabulous job of maintaining this beautiful property. I never write reviews but I was so blown away by this place that I had to take the opportunity to praise them. By far the best hotel/ B and B I've ever stayed in!

My new favorite B&B

5 on July 30, 2014

My stay at Port d'Hiver was so incredible that I really did not want to leave. I have stayed at many B&B's but none compare to this one. The breakfast changed each morning and I felt like I was at a gourmet restaurant. The room was immaculate and all the special touches made me feel like a queen. The moment you arrive you feel like family. I am already thinking of going back and I just visited over 4th of July!

Small Town Paradise

5 on January 03, 2013

Melbourne Beach is a small town in south Brevard county Florida. This makes the setting ideal for a relaxing getaway secluded from the crowded beaches of tourist traps that are further north in Brevard (cocoa beach). The first thing you will notice about this B&B is the historic feeling of the buildings within the B&B "compound". I call it a compound because they have created an environment in which it is very easy to forget that there is anyone else around you. The courtyard of the B&B has gardens, a walk bridge, small intimately sized pool, waterfall, all surrounded by tropical landscape and walls that completely block out the outside world. My wife and I stayed in the Havana room for our anniversary. The room was beautifully decorated with a caribbean feel. This particular room had a private balcony overlooking the pool. Everything about our stay was perfect. The nightly fire in the fire pit, heated pool for a late night dip, fantastic customer service, and wonderful food at the cocktail hour at night and breakfast in the morning. Highly recommended and we will be staying again as often as possible!

Beyond excellent!

This Bed and Breakfast truly is a treasure- it exceeded our expectations 100%. The attention to detail is what makes it stand out. We stayed Nov. 4th to Nov. 6th. Everything was very clean, and our every need was taken care of. The staff was friendly and available without being pesky or overbearing. When we arrived (we stayed in the yellow room) our room was cool and fresh with soft music playing in the background. The food was wonderful, gourmet enough to satisfy my "foodie" side and filling enough that my husband didn't go away hungry. The prices may seem on the higher side (we took advantage of a special) but it is truly worth every penny! They have many complimentary "extras" that most B&B's would not provide. We will be back!

Heaven on Earth for couples!!

Amazing romantic getaway - couples escape! Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Delicious breakfasts, gorgeous rooms, perfectly sized pool, many free beach ammenities. We can't wait to return!

What a wonderful B&B! I went for a solo self-pampering getaway, and ended up staying an extra night because it was such a great place to relax and rejuvenate. The food was amazing and the staff made you feel right at home and well taken care of. The beach is conveniently located right across the street; and the neighboring restaurants, all within walking distance, had great food. I can't say enough positive things. I had a great experience, and highly recommend this B&B for anyone who wants to be immersed in an elegant, peaceful, and relaxing environment.

We had a wonderful stay at the Port D'Hiver. Our only regret is that we got in late and had to leave early. What a gem!

Well rested & relaxed

Most Amazing place to visit

5 on June 15, 2012

From the absolutely delicious home cooked food, to the 5-star service this place is one of a kind and by far the most amazing place you could choose to stay at. The rooms are so nice, the people are so nice, and the property is absolutely beautiful - secluded, quiet, perfect! Our honeymoon was PERFECT and we are so so happy we chose to spend it at such an amazing place like Port D' Hiver. We just got back and have already planned another trip there. YOU WON'T REGRET taking a special trip to this place!

We felt like royalty!!

My 86-year old Mom and I stayed here in May for our mother/daughter trip. Port D'Hiver offers the Creole Room as accessible and it was perfect for us!! Awesome view of the beautiful pool, very quiet, queen bed and daybed for separate sleeping (hard to find in a B&B), walk-in shower and a soaking tub. Delicious gluten-free options were available for breakfast, happy hour and our evening snack. So much attention to detail!! There were beach towels, chairs, coolers, snacks and drinks available for our use. The staff was so helpful and attentive. We were treated like royalty. This place is a must!!
