Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Merritt Island

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This unique vacation getaway gives you the convenience of all the area attractions and beach nearby, but without the noise and activity of the tourist spots - you'll come home to serenity and calm.

Situated on three acres of mature oak trees, this 2nd story home/apt. has you looking out your window into the treetops. It feels like sleeping in a tree house, but with air-conditioning and all amenities provided. With just under 1000 square feet of living space, you get much more for your dollar than on the beach.

It is furnished with a queen bed and has a queen futon in the living area - for up to two couples or a family of four.

Bring your bicycle for great biking and your kayaks or canoe for water exploration. Just down the road is launching in the Pine Island Preservation area - with numerous birds, otters, manatees and more to see. Or, you can make arrangements to use our kayaks, sailboats, Stand-Up Paddleboards or learn to windsurf on the Banana River! Choose our Adventure Package for a full month of unlimited watersports equipment for your use and learn a new sport, too!

If you are looking for a wonderful escape with all the beauty and inviting weather of Florida, but don't want just another tourist resort - this is your place to call 'home'.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the perfect place to stay to relax and unwind. It is on the second floor with large picture windows overlooking beautiful big oak trees. It had everything we needed, linens, pots, pans dishes etc. Just had to bring clothes and fishing poles. There was a place to park a flats boat and there are many boat ramps close by for easy launching. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. It was a short drive to the beach, shopping and many great restaurants. We enjoyed visiting nearby Ron Jon's Surf shop, an evening on the Victory Casino Boat, Coconuts and the Hilton Tiki Bar on the beach. The drive going north along the Parkway is very beautiful. Early in the morning you can see wildlife such as Deer and hogs grazing along the road. We had looked all over the area for a short term place to stay and this was the most perfect choice. The owners are extremely helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend staying at their little slice of Paradise on Merritt Island.

We had a wonderful vacation on Merritt Island. The apartment is spacious, the people very friendly and helpful. Location is quiet and a bit out of the way, but beautiful beaches at Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach are only a 20 minute drive away with free parking everywhere.

A home from home.

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I have been lucky enough to have stayed at this lovely country retreat twice in four years and is always a pleasure to stay at, the Dornellas family are extremely welcoming and helpful, in fact the first time we stayed Susie showed us where to find the nearest Publix store.
For me the beauty of the place is the Serenity you have after a busy day at Disney world, Seaworld or any of the other attractions (not forgetting that the Kennedy Space Centre is less then a stones throw from here) and it`s not far from the Pine Island nature reserve which we have ventured to and enjoyed.
And there are local Bars and Grills which are not too far away including my own favourite The Shuttles sports bar and grill, you can venture to close by Titusville or Cocoa beach for other places to indulge yourself in your favourite meals.
Overall it was warm, clean, and homely to which the photos do it no justice, it has plenty of room and a great kitchen, plenty of storage and a great outside patio area to have your breakfast or just relax with a beer and the qustion you may ask is will we return as a Family, Absolutely.

The Best Time !

  • 5 out of 5
Our Stay with Susie and family on Briar Oak was a great 3 months. The property was very comfortable and well maintained. Having Susie and her family close by made us feel just like home... and lots of useful information, too. We have stayed at extended stay accomodations for the past ten years. This was our top experience. We were close to nature and water, but only minutes from town with all its ammenities. The listing description was accurate, as were the photos. There are many things to do in the area. My wife liked the thrift shops and garage sales. While I enjoyed museums, archaeology work, and my bicycle. The beaches are near by in both direction and only minutes away. We are looking forward to our stay next year, and have planned to stay longer.
