Our family weekend getaway at Carol's Island Home was wonderful. We found the home to be extremely comfortable and clean, the tropical furnishings and setting were lovely, and everything we needed was provided. The owner was conscientious in answering our questions ahead of time which helped ensure a delightful stay for us, our children and our grandchildren. I would certainly recommend Carol's Island Home .. you won't be disappointed. .

Owner response: Thank you so much for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay at our home. I know from our guest book how much you enjoyed the pool and going to the beach. Thank you also for being such a wonderful guest and treating our home as you would your own. Please visit again anytime! Carol
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carol's Island Home! She had everything provided we needed AND wanted...washer/dryer, well stocked kitchen with pantry items (like brownies and canned goods):-), swimming pool with floats, balls, etc., lots of pool towels, extra sheets and blankets, 2 living rooms (one for reading and watching the kids swim through the glass doors/windows and the other for t.v./movie watchers, on and on...beautifully decorated... It was home away from home! Home without all the distractions! Only lots of FUN for the whole family. Her home provided privacy as one of the living rooms was able to be blocked off with doors to offer another "bedroom". It was PERFECT! Carol's home is a place we would like to visit again, and definitely tell of our friends to stay there! Carol was very personable to speak with on the phone...kind and considerate! Thanks Carol!

About the owner: We love having a home on Merritt island. A dream come true! Our family has been vacationing on Merritt Island for many years. Carol grew up here watching Apollo Launches and also participated in the Space Shuttle Program. We still have family and friends here and will always consider Merritt Island home. We love to go to the beach, dine at waterfront resturants, swim, observe wildlife, see awesome sunsets and sunrises and feel the constant ocean breezes! We also love the warm winters!
Why the Owner Chose Merritt Island:
We chose this neighborhood because it is located in a safe, family neighborhood and is close to our family and friends. Another great benefit of our home is its central location and closeness to all the shopping and fun things to do. It really makes it easy to zip to the beach or Orlando.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best thing about staying in our home is that we enjoy more privacy, more comfort and have more room to spread out and 'do our own thing' when needed. Having a private pool just outside the back door is a wonderful luxury that is simply priceless to us. We love to swim day and night!
