About Lorne or Rosa

My wife and I grew up in Montreal, Quebec and now live in Toronto, Ontario. We have been travelling down to Cocoa Beach for about 30 years now and a few years ago bought this house to use a few weeks a year. Cocoa Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches you'll ever see and we would like to spend a bit more time here.

The above picture is of our children playing on Cocoa Beach when they were little children (they used to be easier to deal with before they became teenagers-just kidding).

Lorne or Rosa purchased this house in 2011

Why Lorne or Rosa chose Cocoa Beach

We bought this house as we would eventually like to spend more time at the beach, go fishing and surfing more often than now (which is almost never) and enjoy the laid back easy going way of life which is the norm in Cocoa Beach.....oh the bars and restaurants are fantastic and there is plenty of live music at the local clubs.

What makes this house unique

We chose this property because it is on the river and it has a 150 year old oak tree in the backyard. No matter how hot it gets you can sit outside. Also, being on the river there is always a breeze and the manatees and dolphins come right up to you in the backyard.

Great beaches, lots of restaurants and activities in the area. House has a fenced in backyard. The rental home was not as clean as we would have expected. Many spiders and ants in the sun room. The blinds and draperies were dusty, bug specks and covered with dog hair/spider webs. The only vacuum was a shop vac in the garage, which was not efficient. Only one small frying pan in the entire kitchen, but did have fairly new appliances. One sectional couch but no comfortable chairs or decor. No spare light bulbs, well worn sheets and dish towels.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my gosh! We were so happy at this home! I couldn't have thought of all the things that make it perfect. Quiet road, even though close and direct access to ocean. We walked to boat races. Orientation to sun for sitting on canal, location within Cocoa Beach and shopping are all fabulous. Great canal front with nature activity every day! Very clean, very well maintained, had everything we wanted! Home is very comfortable! Great communication from the owners!

Wonderful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean, well maintained, fully equipped, and most comfortable. The screened in porch is a lovely spot for dinner, watching manatee's and dolphins twenty feet away. If you choose to stay in, ceiling fans throughout keep the home airy. When the weather is pleasant, the patio and lawn are a wonderful location for an evening nightcap. The beach is a short bike ride away. Cocoa Beach is a hidden hamlet with shops and restaurants, frequently overlooked by the vacation goer. All in all, a big thumbs up!
