Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Sea Monica - The Beach House

Apartment, 1 Bedroom , 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

You found us............great!! Thanks for taking the time to scroll all the way down the listings. This is one of the best kept secrets on the beach. We'd love to have you stay with us.

This charming place has the feel of a 'Beach Cottage' even though it is not directly on the Beach. Tile floors withstand the ocean and sand, and the cheery tropical bathroom lets you know you're at the beach. Soft seashore colors of blues and greens relax you, and the sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep.


This apartment is located on the first floor of a lovingly renovated older home in a quiet residential neighborhood. Beach access is right outside your front door - just cross the street and you'll see it! Have your morning coffee at the table and chairs on the terrace by your entrance. Read the paper and enjoy the people going by - walking, jogging, or riding bicycles. The City of Cape Canaveral has just put in a new bicycle path that runs right in front of our place and the pedestrian sidewalk is right across the street. You will also see many people walking their dogs as the neighborhood is very pet friendly.

This past winter we just remodeled the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. New appliances, and an ice maker in the fridge make the place feel fresh again. We have also added broadband internet along with secured WiFi and Premium Cable TV.

About Kathy

My husband and I are 'semi-natives' to Florida having left the cold of New Hampshire and Western New York over 30 years ago.

Kathy purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Kathy chose Cape Canaveral

We live and work in Orlando and found ourselves heading to the beach when ever we could. It just made more sense to buy this lovely old home then to pay for Hotel rooms. The place has 4 Units and we kept one for ourselves.....offering vacation rentals so more people can enjoy what we do.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the charm of this older building surrounded by Palm trees on the corner of the beach access road. 300 steps and you are.on the beach. We take care of the property ourselves so you will always know that from the friendly welcome to the personal touches that we are happy that you chose to stay here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

MS Kathy - Thank you so much for the bucket of goodies! We really enjoyed your comfy condo, it felt like home. We hope to visit again. Thank you for all of your hospitality! Sincerely, Lena & Eva

(The girls really enjoyed their stay and left this note for me !!)

Cute, Easily-Accessible Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful beach house for what I needed (long term rental). The apartment was filled with all sorts of creature comforts, and things a traveler might forget to pack. The cleanliness and details really made this place stand out. I had colleagues of mine staying at other places near by, and they weren't nearly as well-kept. Kathy was extremely responsive, and made sure that I had everything I needed. All of my family was jealous of how close I was to the beach (I could see it from the front door, and I didn't even have to squint!). I would definitely recommend to singles or couples traveling/need a beach getaway.

Wonderful Accommodations Near the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 2 bedroom apartment and found a spacious, clean getaway with a well appointed kitchen. The location was perfect for us, away from the Cocoa Beach traffic and near the port with its restaurants and seafood outlets. We will definitely try to stay there on our next trip to the area.

Great beach escape

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Kathy and Scotts beach apartment for 3 months while temporarily in the area. It was a wonderful place right next to the beach. Kathy stocks it with all the supplies that you could need. It's in a nice area with a large bike and walking path next to the roadway. My little dog enjoyed the walks around the neighborhood. The location is great and just a short distance to port canaveral or cocoa beach. There are many nice restaurants nearby on the ocean or at the port. I would definitely stay again if in the area.

Beach Baby, Beach Baby

  • 5 of 5

Great accomodations for a couple on a budget. Relatively quiet, safe, neighborhood with the beach just down the lane. Easy parking in front of the door. Kathleen stocks the place with the necessities you'd expect to find at home and more. The central location makes it ideal for convient travel to area attractions, eateries, grocery stores, and of course, more beaches. We were very pleased with the uncrowded road systems that made for relaxed driving up and down the coast and back west to the airport. We can say, "The Beach House work's as home away from home for us". We'll be back.

Owner's Response: So nice to know that the area is great for the lazy, hazy, days of summer. Not having to deal with crowds.......especially on the beach really makes for an enjoyable visit. We hope to see them back again............soon!

Perfect & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Photos were exactly like the real thing! Very clean, felt like home, Kathy was wonderful to communicate with, checked in on us via email when she was unable to be there upon our arrival. It's a cute and cozy apartment - just the right size for 2 - and one block from the ocean. My partner and I came for 3 days of relaxing and some frolicking in the waves, and thats just what we did. There was a "welcome" package from Kathy, as well as her recommendations for restaurants which we loved. Definitely a great stay for two looking to get away.

Perfect house for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

The house was complete with everything we needed for our romantic getaway weekend! With close beach access, we were able to go whenever we wanted and come back to the AC when we got too warm. Everything we needed for the beach was available, and the washer facilities made light packing easy! Stores and restaurants were close and easy to find. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! It really felt like a home away from home!

Public Beach acess road just 300 steps
Car: recommended

We are located 1 1/2 miles south of Jetty Park and 1 1/2 miles north of The Cocoa Beach Pier. The Beach House is on the corner of the beach access road which means we are a very short walk to the beach. It is a quiet neighborhood place with Condos and Townhouses surrounding us, no Hotels or Souvenir Shops. For those of you who prefer not to deal with 'Condo' rules, parking passes, or elevators, this is the place for you!! You can park in front of your door which makes loading and unloading the car a breeze.

We are a few miles from the Port where you will find restaurants, seafood markets, charter fishing boats and Cruise lines. The Airport in Orlando is 45 minutes away, and Disney is about 1 hour.

Other Activities: kayaking, para-sailing, shopping, boating, mini golf
