Merritt Island apartment description

This unique vacation getaway gives you the convenience of all the area attractions and beach nearby, but without the noise and activity of the tourist spots - you'll come home to serenity and calm.

Situated on three acres of mature oak trees, this 2nd story home/apt. has you looking out your window into the treetops. It feels like sleeping in a tree house, but with air-conditioning and all amenities provided. With just under 1000 square feet of living space, you get much more for your dollar than on the beach.

It is furnished with a queen bed and has a queen futon in the living area - for up to two couples or a family of four.

Bring your bicycle for great biking and your kayaks or canoe for water exploration. Just down the road is launching in the Pine Island Preservation area - with numerous birds, otters, manatees and more to see. Or, you can make arrangements to use our kayaks, sailboats, Stand-Up Paddleboards or learn to windsurf on the Banana River! Choose our Adventure Package for a full month of unlimited watersports equipment for your use and learn a new sport, too!

If you are looking for a wonderful escape with all the beauty and inviting weather of Florida, but don't want just another tourist resort - this is your place to call 'home'.
