Started rough, ended well!
Our stay started after a very late flight into Orlando and unfortunately when we arrived at the property it was clear it was not ready for guests as there was major plumbing work going on in the bathroom. The property manager was great. Toni drove out at 6am the next morning to take a look as she had no knowledge of this. Apparently it was an owner issue. We were without that bathroom until the following afternoon. The rest of the stay was great. We were in the area for baseball at Space Coast Stadium. The park was only about 25min away. The rest of our time was spent fishing off the dock which was excellent. The fishing success made up for any issues we had to start our stay! Property manager was excellent; props to Toni.
Wish we could have stayed longer ... or FOREVER !!!
Vacations always end too soon but returning from this particular trip was more difficult than most because of the location of this charming VRBO property. We felt so at home - we hated to leave. Makes us want to retire early and stay forever!
The property is beautiful and we liked the cozy size of the home. We loved waking up to manatees and dolphins by the dock and ending the day with gorgeous sunsets! It was great cooking homemade pizzas together as a family in the well stocked kitchen. The recreation house provided fun for our college-aged sons and we all enjoyed the use of their two single-person kayaks. We enjoyed taking day trips to Cocoa Beach and the Orlando theme parks. We felt well rested thanks to the comfortable beds and quiet area. We also appreciated walking through the neighborhood where all the friendly neighbors wave and say hello.
We feel very fortunate and blessed that the owners shared their wonderful vacation home with us. It was a special trip that we will always remember with a smile. It was perfect. We highly recommend it. Enjoy!
Great place to celebrate Christmas with Family
We enjoyed a week long stay during Christmas at this Riverfront property. Our highlights were being in close proximity to the beach, shopping and enjoying amazing sunsets on the Indian River from the dock. We did cook a bit and the kitchen was well equipped for all our meals. Our family enjoyed morning walks in the neighborhood and friendly greetings from nearby residents. It was nice to have the firepit table outside in the cool December evenings. We were also impressed with the beach gear provided, like goggles and boogie boards to enjoy a day at the beach! This is a great rental when considering a long stay with family in the Melbourne/Merritt Island area.
Relaxing and peaceful. Great location.
What a great week! The house was perfect for our family of 4, (including two teenagers) Although there are only 2 bedrooms, the teens alternated between the couch and the bedroom and slept great on both. As secluded as the house seems it is only 15 minutes from a major shopping area with a Publix and a CVS. Only 35 minutes to Orlando international and it was an easy drive to Cocoa Beach (20 minutes), the Kennedy Space Center (30 minutes) and even Orlando attractions (1 hour). The house was well equipped with everything you could ask for and was well kept. The separate rec room had games, ping pong and 2 kayaks for use on the Indian River. The only flaw, and this is minor, but the Cable/Satellite didn't work in the living room. Sometimes after a long day we like to relax with a little Food Network or other TV but all that worked were the apps, (Netflix, Prime, Spotify). Also, the surround sound system didn't work so we were stuck with the horror of watching a Netflix movie using only the TV speakers! The appliances were all nice and up to date models, the AC worked great, the beds were comfortable and the morning coffee on the dock was awesome. I would rent this property again any time, it is wonderfully secluded yet close to everything you could need.
Thank you for the great review!
So sorry to learn about the difficulty with the living room TV. The solution is to use the universal remote to turn on the cable box that sometimes get out of sync with the other devices. Alternatively turn the cable box on manually, it is located in the 2nd bedroom closet.
Great place. By far beat staying at a hotel or Condo.
We enjoyed our stay. The fishing was good off the dock and we saw dolphins pass right by the dock. It was great having a laundry and all the comforts of home.
A little piece of Heaven !
Home from an amazing week! This house was great and had quite an amazing view! I agree with all of the other wonderful comments and love all of the family friendly games available to us! Darts became a nightly challenge !!
It is a lovely place to stay with more amenities than most rentals. The sunrises and sunsets were impressive to watch from the comfortable loungers in the master bathroom. It is a great neighborhood to walk and jog in and the neighbors were super friendly😊 I highly recommend this quiet little piece of heaven!
