|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Great location! Avoid the busy Cocoa Beach hotels and stay in a comfortable three bedroom home with a private pool instead ! Close to Cocoa Beach and Atlantic ocean beaches, 10 minutes to Kennedy Space Center and only 45 min from Orlando attractions.
Great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet home setting, away from the traffic and noise in Cocoa Beach.
By the way, we are the only property in Merritt Island legally able to rent their home for less than 90 days. All the other properties listed in Merritt Island are only suppose to rent for 90+ days. Stay with us and avoid your vacation being interrupted by a visit from code enforcement.
Merritt Island is an unincorporated 'town' located on Florida's largest island, which serves as the home of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, still a major tourist attraction. You can enter the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, meet an astronaut, enjoy the automated thrills of the Shuttle Launch Experience and explore other interactive displays. And, if you are fortunate, you will be on site when an unmanned rocket blasts off from the space center or from the adjacent Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
In addition, you can visit the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, a 140,000-acre nature sanctuary, where many birds migrate during the winter months. Merritt Island is abundant in wildlife such as manatees, dolphins, alligators and migratory birds.
Merritt Island has a lot to see and do! There are boat rides that take you through the banana/Indian river to see wildlife, Scuba diving lessons, Wind surfing, Kayak tours at the Brevard zoo and more!
Our home is perfect for a quiet relaxing vacation, but close to the beaches and Orlando attractions.

Most Orlando attractions are just 45 minutes to one hour away.
Your vacation awaits you in beautiful Merritt Island!
We purchased this home because we love Merritt Island. Merritt Island is a great location, close to the beach and Orlando; but away from the city, traffic and noise. We have a chocolate lab and wanted a place we could bring the whole family, including our dog!
Merritt Island is known for Kennedy Space Center, the Merritt Island wildlife preserve and it is the second largest estuary in the United States.
We rented our home for a few years, but stopped because using it as a vacation rental because Brevard County passed an ordinance with a 3-month minimum to rent a home in this area.
However, the county just grandfathered our home so we can now legally rent our vacation home for a week or more. Therefore, we are just getting our home back up and running so you can bring the whole family.
Our home is comfortable and relaxing has everything you need for the whole family! The lanai is a great place to relax in the morning and listen to the birds.
Colleen purchased this house in 2002
Well maintained subdivision. Quiet family oriented location. Close to beach and only 45 mins to Orlando attractions. Professional pool table, which can also be used to play ping pong! Great patio!
House has 3 bedrooms, with a split floor plan.
Master bedroom has a jetted bath tub big enough for two! The Master bedroom has a patio door that opens to the pool and patio area. Very private pool!
We really enjoyed our week staying on Merritt Island. The home was large and well appointed. The pool was fantastic for relaxation after a full day at Universal. We highly recommend this property for anyone visiting the area. We certainly would stay here again if visiting the area.
Enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home and relaxing in the pool
I can't say enough about how beautiful and how at home we felt here. The home is well appointed, especially the kitchen. The neighborhood is very friendly and close to everything. My husband and I are runners and it was great to run in a peaceful neighborhood with no traffic. Cocoa beach was beautiful and easy to get to. We visited Brevard Zoo, Kennedy Space Center and Blue Springs. Had a great time stand up paddle boarding with SoBe Surf. The house is perfect for couples, children, teens, etc. Beautiful pool and backyard. You will not be disappointed!! Many thanks Colleen for a wonderful experience!!
This vacation home was perfect for our family. The neighborhood is quiet but still very close to many stores and the beach. We never ran out of things to do at the house with the pool, a ping pong table, air hockey, and a pool table there was always something to keep the family occupied. Our favorite was the screened patio by the pool as it was so perfect we had a hard time leaving it. As our youngest said repeatedly: "Best Vacation Ever!" and I think the best part was having this haven to come home to after our adventures.
The home was clean, well cared for, stocked with plenty of towels, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there was plenty of space for our family of five to spread out. The beaches were about a ten minute drive and we found that Cocoa Beach had few public beach parks. To save you time we spent searching I recommend mapping your way to Lori Wilson Park and I suggest a late afternoon visit to beat the crowds. Plus, there are banana trees in the back yard of the property and my kids just thought that was out of this world!
All in all a perfect place to vacation!
Everything just great. House was more than adequate, pool was an excellent add on, quiet, wildlife was nice to have and location was perfect. Would definitely stay again if in the area. Also Colleen & Eric were reachable when we had questions. Thanks for sharing your house.
we really enjoyed our stay in your house. the private house was nice. loved the privacy of the yard and pool area. we had our kids come visit from orlando and it made for a good enertainment spot. we visited cocoa beach merritt island wild life refuge. and the mall was nice as well. plenty of resaurants near by. and walmart was handy... the only negative thing about the stay was the one neighbor was very rude about us blocking the side walk when parked in the driveway.. instead of being nice and just telling us he found it nessasary to call the sherif and let him tell us
Great location! Close to Cocoa Beach and the beaches, 10 minutes to the Kennedy Space Center and only 45 minutes from Orlando attractions.
