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.

Great location! Close to the Cocoa Beach and the beaches, 10 minutes to the Kennedy Space Center and only 45 minutes from Orlando attractions.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Merritt Island: Well maintained subdivision. 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House: 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!
