What a wonderful vacation in paradise. We were “hooked” after meeting Margaret and Pete and seen such well-maintained and clean facilities. An enjoyable experience! We will be back!

Wendy & Bob D. Homer N.Y

Margaret and Pete are the best! Both were very friendly and attentive to our needs; the pool was wonderful in the grounds look great! Very much recommend trying this place out.

Dorothy & Charles Clermont Fl

Our thanks for your “hospitality” the condo we rented in Nov 2020 was clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished with friendly and helpful managers. Had a spectacular view and “anything and everything” a guest would need. Our favorite place for breakfast and lunch was a blueberry muffin. We shall return!

John & Shelly Tr.

We Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The unit was clean, the view was amazing!!! Peter and Margaret were super helpful, great to have them there all the time. Perfect location next to pool and beach. Would love to come back.

Gordon Smith

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Rivera for 22 days in June and July 2021 and had a wonderful time. We stayed in three different units (I booked late) and all three were clean, well furnished, and overall really good. The location is perfect. Right on an uncrowded beach with private access where turtles nest. Having a morning cup of coffee while watching the sunrise is a great way to wake up. There is an outside shower to rinse off the sand and salt when returning from the beach and the pool and grounds are very well kept. The atmosphere is low key and Margaret and Pete (the managers) are fantastic.

We are planning to return and certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a laid back vacation on the beach.

The Krol Faily

Our family made a last minute trip from Michigan to Florida for Spring Break but really wanted something accommodating but quiet. Villa Riviera could not have been a more perfect place. The pool was the perfect temperature, even for mom who is forever cold. The ocean and beach is a very short walk from the condos in comparison to other locations. Outside of the traffic you might hear from A1A, it is very peaceful and quiet. Most of the people there appeared to be retirees and very personable. You will not be disappointed staying at Villa Riviera.

We were very lucky to be at The Villa Rivera during February and March. Our unit was very comfortable. The people there are wonderful including Margaret and Pete, the property managers. They tend to every need. They are both professional and friendly, exactly what good property managers should be. It was really perfect. We can't wait to return.

Bob & Wendy Duell, Homer, NY

We have been coming to Villa Riviera for over 14 years. We started out staying for a week at Christmas time; then gradually added a month, then 2 months, after Wendy retired.
We have vacationed at many places, Villa Riviera is by far the best kept secret in Florida. We love it just as it is!

Margaret & Pete have been fantastic to us. Margaret is excellent at communicating with us, when making reservations, arrival, during our stay and our departure. Margaret & Pete are always there to attend to any issue or urgent matter. They stop in and update us on any issue's progress. We have the utmost respect for the efficient jobs they do, on a daily basis, including weekends. It seems that they live and breathe this job 24/7.

Not only are Margaret and Pete excellent at their jobs, they are extremely friendly and always pleasant. It seems like we have been friends with them for many years; that's the kind of people they are to everyone, just like family.

Margaret & Pete- Thank you so much for making Villa Riviera seem like "home" to us. We look forward to spending the winter months here.

Duane & Roxanne Frederick

We’ve been renting at the Villa Riviera for almost 20 years during the month of February. Accommodations and the general atmosphere have always been terrific.. we have been more than pleased with our yearly vacation. Pete and Margaret have always been more than hospitable! They take care of every concern we have ... can’t wait for February 1 !

James Spinnler, Spring Hill Fl.

With all of the craziness going on we were looking for a “staycation” within driving distance. The Villa was just the place. Directly on the ocean, within walking distance of plenty of restaurants, we had relaxing and refreshing week stay. Pete and Margaret the managers made us feel right at home. This was our first time visiting and will definitely not be the last. We will be back.

Andrea Gmarett Atlanta GA.

We've been coming back to the Villa Rivera Club for the past 4 years because we absolutely adore the location and the amenities that come with the place, including your own garaged parking spot, which in and of itself is an incredible convenience. Margaret is a super person who looks after every minor detail to ensure that your stay is memorable from check in to check out. Pete is a true gentleman he even helped us load our car when he saw that we were having trouble lifting heavy bags. The Management is the best, they give it that small family feel. The Ocean is right at the front door. You cannot go wrong with his place, we will be back.

Judith Richter

My sisters and I stayed for a week in October for our yearly get together and really enjoyed the condo. We found it very, very clean and everything we needed was there. We were surprised by how close to the waves we were and how spacious the pool. We felt safe and came back home healthy. Will stay there again next year!

Eddie Orlan Merritt Island FL

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at The Villa Rivera Club to celebrate our sons 15th Birthday. The accommodations were very nice loved the beach and large pool. Margaret was a wonderful hostess. She had a lot of knowledge about the area from restaurants to where we could rent surfboards. It had a great family feel. We would highly recommend this unique place for a vacation we would definitely visit the Villa Rivera Club again soon!

Catherine Glidden

I have been coming to the Villa since 2015 and LOVE IT. It's like a second family My unit is beautifully done and the sunrises are amazing The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The people are very friendly It's handy to everything so I can walk to whatever I need. Margaret and Peter have been fantastic . Always willing to help out. Unable to make it this coming year due to Covid, Border closure and medical restrictions. Hopefully I can make it the following year.

Laura Roe N.J.

My family, along with my parents, rented a ocean-view condo because of the garage . Myself, husband, parents, and 2 boys age 11 & 9. There was plenty of room. The condo was clean and fully stocked with anything and everything. The bathrooms are remodeled nicely. The patio/balcony is the perfect place for morning coffee. We loved the fact that it is a small complex with friendly people. The pool is super nice. The beach is amazing and the sunsets were out of this world. The internet worked great, everything was easy to find.
Lou's Blues Bar & Grill was fun, it is only about a mile north on A1A. (Visit on week nights to avoid the crazy crowds there)
We definitely hope to be returning next year. Thank you so much Pete and Margaret for making us feel at home from the moment we arrived.

Phyllis C.

This is a wonderful place to stay!!! Quiet , safe, and private. The location is perfect! Right on the BEACH. Not too far away from anything, restaurants and shopping all close by. Warm and cozy without the corporate feel. Pete and Margaret the managers are always there to attend to all of our needs, been going for years, feel like we are vacationing with family. Highly recommend. I’ll be back again next year !

Dave L.

Clean, comfortable, quite. An overall pleasant stay. See you again soon the Villa is a 10 out of 10!

Williams Family

We rented units 109 and 201. The units were clean and comfortable and just steps from the beach. The property has everything you need for a relaxing stay and is located close to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Margaret and her husband were very accommodating and friendly. We travel to Melbourne quite often and wish we had found the Villa Riviera Club sooner. We will definitely be staying here again!

Jimmy B.

We just got home from our vacation and I felt compelled to write this review. What a great time my family and I had staying at the Villa. It is a great place to vacation. Especially during these crazy times, it is nice to go to a small quaint vacation spot right on the ocean. Peter and Margaret were fantastic accommodating our every need. We’ll definitely be going back the next chance we get. We couldn’t be happier.

Jeannine Arra, Melbourne, FL

Awesome unit 110 and entire complex is beautiful and well maintained. We also rented 203 & 204 for family and those units were fantastic too! Margaret is very helpful and caring.

The Thomas family

We are repeat customers of Villa Riviera and are very happy to encourage others to discover this wonderful spot. The property and condo has always been clean, spacious, and beautiful. I think of of the key features for us is being on the balcony so close to the ocean, as well as the small community it offers, and of course the heated pool. Also shopping and restaurants are close by, which means more time on the beach. Another key 'feature' is Margaret, she has always been so helpful, I want to really thank her so much for working with us, especially this year with the coronavirus. We will be back again and again.

Foy Family, Smyrna, GA

We stayed at the Villa Riviera in August to help with a family situation in the local area. We felt comfortable and right at home, which was so nice during this stressful time for our family. Margaret was very compassionate and accommodating given the uncertainty of our situation and travel plans. She went out of her way to be helpful and kind. The property was clean, spacious, and beautiful. Our girls enjoyed the beach and the heated pool and the fact that both were mere steps away from the unit. We hope to become "regulars" and make this our home away from home when we visit our families.

Mary Samuels , Hancocks Bridge, NJ

I am a repeat customer at the Villa Riviera. I travel from New Jersey two to three times per year for about five years now. It is a quaint and unique place, one of the very few “Mom and Pop” places left in resort areas. The furnishings are stylish and the units are well cared for. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. I think it offers great value for a family-oriented vacation rental. Rather than riding the elevator of a luxury hotel up to the 25th floor, you can simply enjoy your two-story condo with your family around you in a comfortable environment. The managers, Pete and Margaret are friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I am so glad that I found this hidden gem, I hope it always remains just as it is now!

Dannielle Steil , Aurora, CO

Words cannot express the wonderful time we had at the Villa Riviera during our vacation. The management team, especially Margaret is superb. They went above and beyond in taking care of all of our needs. I’m going to brag about this place to anybody that will listen.

Jan Sarver Dennis, Champaign, IL

We just ended another wonderful stay at the Villa Riviera. This was our 28 year at our home away from home where we met for 10 days every July with our family, my husband’s brothers and their families, and now our children’s families! Every year we play in the ocean, poolside, go out for delicious meals, shop, and just hang out. For those who like to be busier than that there are lots of other activities that can be planned. There is also turtle and porpoise watching at the beach.

The managers, Pete and Margaret are wonderful and make us feel welcome, as are the many unit owners who have become friends over the years.

Margaret thank you so much for working with us, especially this year with the coronavirus, we were not able to share a condo with our daughter and son-in-law as we normally do. You worked with us to rent a second unit at the last minute so we could still be there, stay safely, and not have to get a hotel room. We truly appreciate you and your kindness!

See you in July 2021, we are already looking forward to it.

Laura Haycox, Dunnsville, VA

This is our 4th year here at Villa Riviera and we absolutely love it. Have made good friends on our visits and always look forward to coming back. The property managers are super and always remedy any issues we might encounter in a quick and effective manner. The location is great and the pool is wonderful. I would strongly recommend visiting but please know that I plan on coming back so save my unit for our next visit.

Angela Ludwig

We can't wait to go back!! Villa Riviera has become our home away from home, we were blown away by every amenity. First and foremost, the condo was exceptionally clean and fully equipped, from kitchen appliances, to Wi-Fi. The management was so accommodating and friendly, they felt like family. This place is perfect whether you prefer to stay in to cook, while enjoying amazing ocean views and a breeze with just a pull of the patio door, take a seashell-hunting walk along the beach, or tease your taste buds at some of the best, local restaurants. If you're lucky enough to be there during a space launch from The Kennedy Space Center, it's a wondrous experience, with just a short walk to the beach! For those of you taking day trips, Disney World is merely an hour and a half away! While we were there, we fished right off the beach, catching Florida Pompano fish for dinner. Speaking of food, we loved the restaurants as well, we walked across the street to Cuban Island, where we enjoyed the best Cubanos, and just down the road, Hula Moon Tiki Grill had the best Happy Hour that included $2 tacos, I am still salivating thinking about the Ahi Tuna tacos. Soon we will be there for our 3rd year, it's such a comforting feeling knowing that we don't have to hope we'll have a good time, we already know we'll have a blast! Villa Riviera or Bust!! Thank you so much for everything and we will see you all soon!

Mary Stenzel, Brighton, MI

This is my 5th year returning back to the Villa. I consider it my Paradise place. I love being by the ocean, the sandy beach, and the heated pool. It is a clean, friendly, and safe complex. My family also enjoys coming here year after year. Majority of the people I have met here also return each March. Love seeing them and catching up. It’s a great feeling to see Margaret and Pete, the Villa’s managers, year after year. They are a wonderful couple who are friendly and very helpful. They make you feel welcomed.

Paul & Ann Mahoney – Westport, New York

We love unit 108 because of the privacy of being an end unit. It has a larger porch off the living room and a large southeast balcony that gives us a great view of the ocean and is just steps to the fabulous heated pool.

It is tastefully decorated and comfortable. The lighting is new and the master king size bed tilts for easy tv viewing. All kitchen utensils, and pots and pans are there for easy cooking. The garage is an added bonus. We have been vacationing at the villa for 20 years. You will love it there.

Hillary & Brian Colvin, Ashville, NC

This is our "ideal" vacation spot because of it's easy beach access, salty ocean breezes, quiet starry skies, long sandy walks, frequent bird watching and dolphin breaching and the lazy afternoon pool floats. The cherry on top is the delicious cuban restaurant directly across A1A where you can enjoy an authentic cuban sandwich, flan and coffee. We can't wait to visit again!

Joan and John Edgerton, Tarpon Springs, FL

We wish we had found it ten years ago when we were spending our time in Ormond Beach. Today, it is like our home away from home. We live by the Gulf of Mexico but we love the ocean and the Villa, especially the ocean front ones we have stayed in are breathtaking to wake up to a sunrise on the ocean.

With regarding Ron and Cindy, who are the managers, I think in three short past summers we reached the stage of being friends...your professional help has been wonderful but your hospitality and helpfulness is even more appreciated.


Peace and Love,

Joan and John Edgerton

Colette Pelletier, Canada

We are very pleased at the Villa Riviera Club everything around the Villa is very clean and relaxing regarding the Manager always a pleasure to serve us with a professionnal services and a nice smile.

Steve, Jane and Nick from Oregon

"We came to check out Florida Tech, ended up seeing the Kennedy Space Center and spending hours and hours on the beach. The weather was perfect and we had a lot of fun. The condo we stayed in was deluxe. The amenities were well thought out. It allowed us to have a wonderful family vacation".

Bob and Lisa from New York

"It`s Lisa & Bob, back from New York to your lovely place by the sea. We were so happy to stay here again for the fifth time now and I`m sure we`ll be back soon".

Thank You, Bob & Lisa from NY

Family from Colorado

"Our family met here in Florida from Colorado and Indiana for the first time. The condo and this location was perfect, we had a great time. We even had an opportunity to see a Giant Sea Turtle lay her eggs. We will be sure to visit again!"

Brian and Karen from Florida

"Thanks for the wonderful month we had here. We have been coming to this place over 20 years and we look forward to it each year. This year I have really realized that we have had lots of precious memories here that will never be forgotten. I know that one day I will be bringing my grand kids here too!"

Bob from Michigan

"I have stayed at the Villa Riviera every year since 1985 and this Ocean front unit was the best. Breakfast on the balcony, a glass of wine late in the day, the moon rise & sunrise as well as just watching the surf, are things that will stay in my mind as I head back north to Michigan. The apartment had everything I needed. Thank you and I will be back".
