Deserves 10 stars!!

5 on December 20, 2016

If I could give this B&B 10 stars, I would! The rooms are spectacular as well as the privacy. We stayed in the Sunrise Room and our balcony overlooked the ocean. We slept with the balcony doors open and the shutters closed to be able to sleep while hearing the ocean. The food - the food is unmatched and incredible! Breakfast on the balcony - seriously recommend the sample platter - perfection! Walking distance to several restaurants - staff gives great recommendations (Ocean 302!!). There's a snack room stocked with chips and crackers as well as soda and water. Towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas available (at no extra cost) - walk to the beach. Evening hour to mingle if you would like wine, beer, or soda (at no extra cost). Pool is relaxing. Incredible staff - ever present but unintrusive. Completely relaxing atmosphere!

Love this Place!

I have stayed here twice and absolutely loved both stays. The B&B is super accommodating to you- all the special touches are added, like notes on the bed, turn down with treats, coffee and paper at door in morning along with the full breakfast if requested. Can't beat the service and peaceful retreat anywhere thus far! Plush bedding, clean rooms, wonderfully made breakfasts, a delightful happy hour and delicious cookies always available. Plus a fully stocked snacks and drinks closet along with anything you might need for the beach. You won't be disappointing!

My fiancee and I had a wonderful stay in the Yellow Room. The room, the staff and area were great. Only complaint was we did not stay longer. The breakfast was wonderful, and not standard menu. The staff was very friendly and made the stay very laid back. We're already trying to figure out when we can go again. You won't be disappointed!

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!
