City Guide for Sebastian, FL

Sebastian, Florida, is the home of the first segment of property that eventually became the National Wildlife Refuge System. Thank an early 20th-century German immigrant who wanted to protect brown pelicans.

If you like the theme-park atmosphere so common in Florida, don't bother moving to Sebastian. This small city is proud that there are no Mickey Mouse parades or a view of roller coasters riding wildly off into the sunset. It's located on Florida's east coast at the state's midpoint with only a narrow barrier island separating the neighborhoods and Atlantic Ocean, and forming a lagoon. U.S. Route 1 runs along the eastern edge. With a population nearing 22,000, as of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city is a very affordable, small-town Florida but with all the amenities. There are Atlantic beaches, monthly arts and crafts shows, trendy restaurants, and Pelican Island, the first designated wildlife refuge. No wonder it's a quiet community--it purposely went to the birds! See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with balconies in Sebastian, FL

Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.

Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.

You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.

Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.

Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.

Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Sebastian renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
