Right on the riverfront with gorgeous sunsets

Bedrooms 2
Property type house



About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a direct view of the Banana River

The house was fully hollowed out in 2013, and was finally completely finished in October 2014.

It contains two bedrooms and one bathroom in the upper floor, as well as a living room with a pull-out sofa, bathroom, kitchen and dining area on the ground floor.

All bedrooms and the living room are fitted with flat screen TVs. In the living room, there is also a DVD player and a selection of DVDs.

The bedrooms on the upper level have separate entrances.

The house has central air-conditioning, which can be regulated separately for the upper or ground level.

Enjoy the view of the Banana River from your breakfast table, where dolphins pass by or schools of fish crowd around, often at a distance of just 10 metres. The single dock is a great fishing spot in one of Florida's premier angling regions.

Just 150 metres in the other direction, you will reach the extensive Cocoa Beach, which is ideal for long walks or surfing.

From here, it is just a hop, skip, and a jump to Orlando to the Disney theme park, about 45 minutes away.

Right in front of your door, there are further attractions such as, for example, the Ron Jon Surf Shop (the largest surf shop in the world), the cruise ship harbour at Cape Canaveral, the Kennedy Space Center and the Cocoa Beach Pier, to name a few.

Daytona Beach is also just an hour away, where America's largest biker gathering happens every year in March.

My family and I stayed here for a couple days of relaxation prior to heading to a whirlwind week at Disney World and I must say it was FABULOUS. The location is PERFECT. I loved having the beautiful serene lake right there at our door and then being able to cross the very short distance across the street to the gorgeous crashing ocean waves. We saw dolphins each day just feet from us. It was wonderful. Having the bedrooms upstairs with only outside access was a little bit of a pain, but it definitely is not enough to keep me from coming back. The main bedroom has windows across the one wall that make waking up to the lake view of dolphins jumping breathtaking. The beds were quite comfortable too. We cooked our breakfasts in the kitchen which is nicely remodeled with plenty of dishes as well as a nice dishwasher making for easy clean up. The whole home was remodeled remarkably well. The town was awesome to explore with great places to eat! I loved being a little out of the main tourism strip area. It made crossing the street to the ocean a breeze and allowed for more peace and tranquility.We absolutely plan to come back!

Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of Thanksgiving but not for the holiday. Both the location and the accommodations were perfect. The rental is comfortable, clean, and close to both the beach, shopping, and local attractions. We had a wonderful time there. We watched fish jump out of the river and even spotted a dolphin once. The uncrowded beach is a 3 minute walk away, if that. Great for taking long strolls. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen equipped with everything imaginable. Good bathrooms, too. The owner was easy to communicate with and accommodating. Overall a great place!!! Even if there's no cable and we couldn't get a wifi connection. There was enough to do. We'll be back!!

Clean, Well Maintained, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The photographs of the unit were very representative of the clean, well maintained, and furnished property. Communication from the owners provided clear instructions to access the unit, which was helpful as we didn't arrive to the property until early in the evening. Coordinating between the upstairs bedrooms and downstairs living space was a little tricky, but it wasn't anything that negatively impacted our stay or would prevent us from staying at the property again or recommending it to others. We didn't get to take full advantage of the location on the water based on the short time we were at the property, but we could easily tell that the sunsets from the backyard would be another benefit of this unit. We'd definitely stay at this property again the next time we're in the Cocoa Beach area and enjoyed every aspect of our rental experience.

Niceville Florida

River Home

  • 3 of 5

The house is very unique. Has been updated so everything is clean and new. Beds are very comfortable but not kings as shown in descriptions. Also the dock shown in picture is now no longer there. This was one of the main reasons I decided to go with this rental. What is there now is a temporary floating dock that is very unstable to walk on an very small. Very disappointed that they did not make this known. Love the river, sunsets were great. Would suggest that being you have paddle boards available for use that life jackets are available as well. This is required by law to have if you get on a paddle board.

Owner's Response: Dear customer,sorry about this but you could see at the Internet photos the description that hurricane matthew distroyed the dock and a new one is expected in April 2017 because all companies doing this work are very busy right now.I changed the description long time before you booked the property. Once more sorry about this mistake

Great location right on the river

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little place that was recently renovated. It was clean and had everything we needed. The pier was good for fishing and watching dolphins and the water was bioluminescent when we were there. There is a nice yard in front. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. There is two zone air conditioning - downstairs and upstairs. The outside stairs were no problem at all. We will definitely rent this house again.

Spectacular sunset and we saw dolphin too

  • 3 of 5

Nice spot, a little odd about the separate upstairs bedrooms; I would think it would be easy to make those stairs interior. You have to lock up downstairs for the night, and juggle keys for upstairs and down. Keys were tricky to sort out which key for which doors and initially finding the lock box. Took us 10 minutes to get right key to open bedrooms upstairs. Labeling keys would make this all much simpler. Also, sent message to owner prior to arrival about Wifi too but never got a response. Outside hose needs work. Splintered deck and bench dangerous. Aside from that, place is comfy and adorable, with new bathrooms and bedrooms, and the location is great on the river. A little tricky crossing A1A to the beach, but it's close for sure and a beautiful beach and surf.
