Enjoy a peaceful stay within walking distance of Dillard Mill. Relax on your own private deck, fire up the grill, and finish the evening around your own campfire. Sleeps up to 4. Self check-in and out for added privacy. Pets are welcome for an extra $50 per stay. 

The space

The Sebastian has a Queen Bed + 2 Twin Beds. The half bath has a flushing toilet and sink with hot water. Shower facilities along with additional private flushing toilets are in the 'hippy shower' attached to the barn (about 75' away).

The hippy shower is an eclectic bathroom and shower facility with hot water. Sebastian's kitchen includes a sink with hot water, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, electric skillet, coffee maker along with dishes and utensils to help you enjoy your own home cooked meal.

The Sebastian is set away from the main house. The location is shared with another RV, but they are spaced generously to provide a private, secluded feel. Next to The Sebastian is a private deck with a view. Included on the deck is a BBQ grill, and bench/sitting area and outdoor dining table and two chairs. The space has two AC units and electric space heater. We've included a TV with a small collection of DVDs for your entertainment. There is WiFi available on the property, but WiFi does NOT extend to the Sebastian.

History of The SebastianThis sleek 1970 Avion had quite the life before he settled here in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest. In 2012, a husband and wife by the name of Billy and Anais Yeager created a film set out to capture the soul of surfing in the 1960s and 70s. Billy, an eccentric filmmaker, strived to recreate the spirit, smells, and soul of surfing southern Brevard County during his teenage years. He recalled surfers catching waves and hanging out, eating fruit from trees and sleeping on the beach of Sebastian Inlet State Park.

The couple built a surf shack and spent three months filming and working out of Sebastian in Long Point Park, Florida. The end result was a 75-minute retro documentary appropriately titled, Sebastian Beach: One Fine Day, which showcased the surfing culture Billy experienced in his younger years. The film premiered at the New York Surf Film Festival, where it competed in the feature film category. The Sebastian was lucky enough to make it in the movie!

The previous owners of our farm had a father who lived in Sebastian, Florida. When the Avion went on sale and the history of Sebastian was discovered, they knew they had to have it. The couple integrated the beach theme, but also left some of the original elements as Billy and Anais had it, like the orange spaghetti lamp and 8-track player.

Other things to note

While this space provides most utilities and amenities you'd find at your home, it is important to note is still a camping-style getaway. We do our best to treat the area, but you will encounter insects.

AT&T has limited cell phone reception in the area, Sprint is very spotty, and Verizon is pretty much unavailable for service. We provide the best free wifi available to help with communication back to the real world, but it is rather slow. The best wifi reception is near the Cottage/Main House. You may see different wifi networks around the property. The password will be the same for all of them.

We try and keep the area well maintained. You may see ATVs/tractors on our property and on the gravel road.

Pets are welcome for an extra $50 per stay. Please note our dogs may be on the property. They are friendly and well-behaved, although sometimes curious. Other guests may have no-leash pets as well.

The two-night stay at the Sebastian was pleasant and fun! The RV was set up well ahead of our arrival and clean. The hot water supply and the lighting was superb. Jay, the host, was amicable and had been pretty accommodating with any requests. We did a campfire on the first night with the logs and firewood on the property, which were a bit damp, probably due to the rain the night before, but there was ample to use. The surrounding area is picturesque and serene. The hippy shower is exciting, although a working shower inside the Sebastian would have been cozier. Also, we were expecting (our mistake, not the host's) that the burners inside the RV are working but they are not. Jay mentioned the he is working on fixing and improving things, like a deck around the Sebastian. This would surely add to the value of the unit and anyone would happily rent it even at a higher price. Overall, a definite A+ experience.

Jay and his family were very welcoming and The Sebastian was just as pictured! There is plenty of hiking around between the Park, Huzzah, and Mill just down the road. The stars (and milkyway!) were spectacular especially if you turn off all of the lights at your site. We'll be back!

We enjoyed staying at The Sebastian! Beautiful property, relaxing and just what we were looking for. We walked the grounds, down to the creek and The Mill, we enjoyed the location. The temps are getting cold at night, so bring some extra blankets would be my tip to upcoming visitors. Can't wait to visit again :)
