I have to conur with Phi, presuming all of FL was riddled with strip malls lacking charm I was knocked out by the Ocean Drive retail village on Vero's barrier island -- it's chocked with eateries fancy to casual, boutiques, galleries, public remarkably uncrowded beached (never a charge!) and a great vibe. The folks are friendly, the offerings both cultural to recreational are surpringly sophisticated yet affordable. Thanks to being tucked in just inside the tropic line our beloved Live Oaks sit beside palms, very cool. Also cool: our river is not freshwater (=rarely gators) but a tidal estuary, with wide vistas, mangrove lined spoil islands and home to manatees, dolphin, egrets and fabulous nightly sunsets. And property's 40% more affordable than other seaside communities to boot, with rigorus low density low profile zoining, tons avail in that price point! Pics:…

The Beachland area of Vero by the Sea is an outstanding area with Old Florida charm. It really needs to be experienced! It is a little south of St Augustine but also has milder winters.
I would be happy to send you a number of homes that meet your special requirements.
