The Best Kept Secret on the Beach!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to scroll down to find us, or we wouldn't be the best kept secret on the beach!! Our reviews are testimony to that. We hope that you will come and stay with us and join our family. Many of our guests return yearly to visit and we look forward to having them.

We may not be directly on the beach but we're only 200 steps from it. Our ground floor location makes it easy to grab your gear and go.

Cape Canaveral is like a little bit of old Florida. It is mostly residential and has a neighborhood feel to it. There are older homes and newer Condo's. The lifestyle is very relaxed and casual. For those of you who prefer not to deal with elevators, parking passes, and 'Condo Rules', this is the ideal place for you. Right outside your front door are chairs and a table for your morning coffee. Read the paper and enjoy the people going by - walking, jogging, or riding bicycles. The City of Cape Canaveral just put in a bike path that runs right by our place and the pedestrian sidewalk is right across the street. You'll also see many people walking their dogs as our neighborhood is very pet friendly.

This spacious 2 bedroom apartment is located on the first floor of a lovingly renovated older home. It is ideal for anyone that has problems with stairs, and has a front and back entrance so unpacking the car and taking in groceries is easy. The living room is an open floor plan to the kitchen and dining area which seats 6 comfortably. Vinyl wood flooring throughout with the exception of carpet in the bedrooms.

It also has the added bonus of a Den with sliding glass doors which open to a small and private patio. The Den is furnished with a desk for your laptop hookup, a bookcase with games and books, a stereo for your enjoyment and a reading chair. If you would prefer something smaller in size, please ask me about my 1 bedroom unit.

Around the side of the house is an outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand from you, the beach chairs and umbrella after returning from the beach. You'll also find the BBQ grill and maybe some charcoal and lighter fluid right outside your back door.

There are beach chairs, boogie boards, a cooler and an umbrella which you are free to take down to the beach. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it. If you're lucky you might just see a rocket launch.

About Kathy

My husband and I are 'semi-natives' who live and work in Orlando. We both moved down to Florida from up north over 30 years ago. Having a second home so close makes weekends at the beach a reality for us.

We are also self proclaimed "Space Babies" and are so happy that the space program started up again. The thrill of a launch never gets old and is exciting the 25th time as it was the first!!

Kathy purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Kathy chose Cape Canaveral

We found ourselves spending more and more weekends at the beach and finally decided to invest in something more than a Hotel Room!!! Because we are not 'Condo' people, we chose this 4 Unit apartment building. We decided to keep one Unit for our 'get-a-away' and rent out the other three. So far, we've weathered Hurricanes, the stock market and the economy. (There was a reason the Government chose Cape Canaveral for it's Space Center!!!) Cape Canaveral offered a laid back lifestyle, a quiet beach, and friendly neighbors. It truly is a wonderful lifestyle.

What makes this apartment unique

The unit is located on the ground floor with front and rear access making it easy for children and pets.

We pride ourselves on the personal care we give each guest and will go out of our way to do all possible to make sure you have an enjoyable visit. You will never receive this attention to detail in a Hotel which makes us truly unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carrie and the kids returned for Mother's Day and a shuttle launch this year and left this note:

Kathy + Scott, Thank you again (and never enough!) for letting us become part of your friendship + wonderful home. Love Carrie + Kids (We will miss you guys! See you again soon !! Sarah)

Great place to stay at the beach and still enjoy Disney.

  • 4 of 5

Kathy was so helpful she met us with a wonderful welcome basket which was nice because we just drove 10 hours and were exhausted. She gave us a tour and left us to relax. It's a very nicely decorated home and very convenient to the beach and a short drive to Disney so we got the best of both worlds. We will definitely stay again.

A Beautiful and Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this vacation home. It's a beautiful home, in great condition, and has everything you would need (and extras). We flew in, so we were not able to bring the usual paper products, kitchen and bath supplies. That wasn't a problem at all, as Kathy had stocked the house with all of this. Great care has been taken to provide the best vacation experience. The location is a short walk down one block to the beach. The beach is very private and family oriented. We had very peaceful days relaxing on the beach. Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach Pier are only a mile and a half in either direction. The port has cruise ships, great seafood restaurants and markets. We were lucky enough to see a rocket launch right from the beach! The pier's new tiki bar (and restaurants) are great to hang out and watch the ocean in the evening. The owners are wonderful and make you feel at home. We would have loved to stay longer. Kathy and Scott, It was a pleasure to meet you both. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was a perfect vacation. We will definitely be back. 🙂?

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure I can write a review that will do Kathy or the rental justice. Even under the weather, Kathy directed us to the apartment and had delicious key lime bread and snacks waiting! In every step of the process, Kathy accommodated us and made everything easy. I can’t thank her enough. As for the apartment, it was impeccable. The study tops it off! There are no surprises and even better than described. The fully stocked kitchen has it all and we even had steaks one night grilled up on the Weber. The bathroom is also stocked with everything needed in case a personal effect is forgotten and then it has even more for any situation. We even took advantage of the washer and dryer, as there is nothing better than coming home with clean clothes! Kathy has thought of all the little touches to make the stay special. We especially liked the fishing cart to carry her beach chairs and our refreshments to the beach, even though the walk is ONE whole block! And speaking of location, it can’t be beat. The neighbors are friendly and hit up Friday Fest, just several blocks away, if you have the chance! The restaurants of the Port are less than a 10 minute drive and the pier, about a mile and a half away, can be walked to in about 30 minutes, with a short cab ride back. There are also other restaurants even closer in the neighborhood within walking distance. The Kennedy Space Center is about a 30 minute drive, and Disney and Universal are an easy 1 hour drive. (All visited and enjoyed!)

I recommend this rental for everyone and may not leave after my next stay! Again, a special thanks to Kathy who really made a special trip unforgettable.

- Tim

This place has everything you need. Perfectly clean too and the owner is wonderful.

Just a very short stroll to the beach, and not a crowded one at that. I would 100% recommend this place and would stay again too.

Superb place to stay! Met by Kathy's husband, he showed us round and presented us with a gorgeous home made cake and overall was very welcoming. The property is immaculate both in cleanliness and in furnishings. Huge comfortable master bed with really lovely bedding. Our son was in an equally well thought out bedroom . He loved the cool surf designer bedding in his room and Kathy took the time and thought, to leave him an age- appropriate welcome pack which he loved. There are extras galore in this property to the point that if you've forgotten anything I am sure Kathy has it covered. There are too many details to list but lots of thought and care had gone into the preparation for our stay. Not only do Kathy and Scott take the utmost pride in their property they also treat their visitors as individuals and make them feel very welcome. This property is only a hop skip and a jump to the beach however we mainly used it as a base to visit The Kennedy Space Centre which was perfect. The outside shower along with the washing machine and tumble dryer were also very useful . We stayed in various rental properties during our three week stay in Florida and although this was by no means the most expensive, it was by far the best. Book this property if you can.
