Yin and Yang

"Yin and Yang" are two ocean-to-river beach house properties for rent in South Florida, joining "Nirvana Shores" and "Restoration Sands" into a fun-filled and relaxing 17 bedroom, 11 bathroom beach estate with sauna, hot tub, private dock, and more.

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are two forces that make up all aspects of life, opposing but complementary, bringing a peaceful balance and strong serenity. Enter Restoration Sands and Nirvana Shores: A two-home luxury beachfront and riverfront compound that we call "Yin and Yang"!

Rejuvenate with a beachfront massage — or yoga class in the sand — on your own private 100 feet of Atlantic beach. Refresh with a swim in the warm waters of the Florida Atlantic ocean. Then spend some time in any of the properties numerous features, from sauna to steam room to hot tub to heated indoor/outdoor splash pool.

Everything is included free with your rental

Wear your t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops to the airport, because that's all you need for your Florida beach-house vacation . . . We provide the rest. Travel light — and live large — with the fully-stocked, 5-Star-amenity properties of Beach Houses in Paradise. (Our motto is "We stock heavy, so you can travel light".)

Own one or more boats? Bring them! Moor it at your own private dock, and there's even room to park your trailer. RVs? room for that too!

SAVE! By booking “Yin and Yang”, you already enjoy a discounted rate compared to the cost of booking the individual homes separately. But additional discounts are available: military, educators, civil service, rescue and law enforcement, medical and more. Active or retired. Even Florida residents save $$. (But Seniors aged 50+ get the biggest discount of all.)

Not only are the homes situated in the most biodiverse marine environment in America (source: Florida Oceanographic Institute), but are also located in Stuart FL, Winner of the "America's Happiest Seaside Town" award given annually by Coastal Living Magazine! (Locals — of a certain age that remember TV's "The Andy Griffith Show" — proudly call Stuart the "Mayberry of Florida".)

Two of the only 60 beach houses like it in the USA

These precious ocean jewels are among the fewer than 60 beach houses in the entire United States that sit DIRECTLY ON THE OCEAN and also sit DIRECTLY ON A MILE-PLUS WIDE RIVER with private dock for fishing and water toys, and where the river empties into the ocean just a short mile away. Start every day with breakfast views of a glorious sunrise gently emerging above the peaceful ocean. Usher in each evening with mesmerizing vistas of golden-hued sunsets rippling across the majestic Indian River.

The Yin and Yang homes share a private dock.

A water wonderland

In addition to the private beach, enjoy a private dock adjacent to tiki-hut entertainment deck, complete with complimentary fishing equipment (fully-stocked bait and tackle), snorkeling gear, and even complimentary water toys such as paddleboards, kayaks, rafts and more. If you're not bringing your own, boats and jet skis are available too.

A treasure chest of delight

And there's even more fun to be had: the homes sit smack dab in the middle of the "Treasure Coast". To this very day, gold doubloons, pieces of eight and other Spanish treasure still occasionally wash up along Hutchinson Island, especially following big storms. The nearby House of Refuge Museum showcases relics from prior shipwrecks, one of which — the Georges Valentine wreck — is a fun snorkeling experience and is close enough to swim to from the beach nearby! (Complimentary beach-comber metal-detectors are provided.)

Help preserve our pristine area

The waters in and around the beach houses are among the most biologically rich and environmentally sensitive in the entire United States. The owners of the home are ardent supporters of local environmental groups for 20+ years, with financial support and contributions well into the 7 figures.

Help preserve the natural beauty and sensitive ecosystem surrounding the home:

  • Do not touch or approach dolphins, sea turtles and manatees (who sometimes swim near the end of the dock). These are protected species. The Florida Fish and Wildlife officers in their boats have powerful binoculars; they WILL arrest you.
  • Be responsible with your fishing tackle. Avoid leaving behind loose lines, hooks and other tackle after a successful day fishing. (Pelicans, egrets, herons and other birdlife get tangled in fish lines or snagged by hooks ... or by fish they've caught who still have a hook in their mouth.)
  • Do not litter (this includes urinating into the water, emptying alcohol or soda into the water, and so on)

Floor Plan



Is Yin and Yang wheelchair or motion-impaired accessible?

Both homes feature elevators that provide access to all floors.

Are the kayaks and jet skis included?

All human-powered toys you see – from bikes to kayaks, from paddle boards to snorkels – are included free with your rental. (Note that surfboards tend to be highly specialized items that many of our guests bring themselves. If you would like to rent surfboards, they are available from several providers.) Motorized items – such as jet skis, boats, cars, or RV’s – can be rented from nearby providers.

Are there alligators?

Alligators don't exist in this part of Florida. (Gators can't survive near the beach in saltwater environments; they live only inland, where there is plenty of fresh water.) At Yin and Yang, both the river and ocean are salty.

Can I combine a Florida beach house vacation with a Disney World Orlando vacation?

Yes. For those interested in combining a beach house experience with Mickey Mouse, Disney World, Universal, and all the other Orlando Resorts: It's a two-hour drive from Yin and Yang to Disney and Orlando, driving along the Florida Turnpike. (Avoid the Interstate). Many vacationing families in our beach home community will spend a week bringing three (or four) generations together in a Florida beach house, then "spin off" the younger side of the family to Disney World for a few days.
