Merritt Island house description

Home Details

Welcome to our home! Our Pristine (1800 square feet) Floridian home awaits you for your home away from home vacation. When our family members are not using this Florida retreat we allow other special guests to take advantage of what Florida has to offer. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, pool home has tile floor throughout living areas and plush carpet in the bedrooms. It has a Family Room, living room and dining area (that seats 8), a completely renovated kitchen and very long breakfast bar. The master suite has a king size bed, a bath with double sinks, & walk-in shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has two single beds. The spare bathroom has a bathtub and an exit/entrance to the pool! The house was just freshly painted and has all new furniture. There is a large screen TV in the living room, master bedroom, and in the queen spare room, on the back porch and in the kitchen. With 5 TV's you can relax after a hard day in the sun and watch your favorite shows or a movie. There is also a security system that can be used for your comfort! There is a fenced back yard with a pool (baby gate if necessary) and a propane BBQ grill.


World Famous Cocoa Beach and Ron Jon's Surf shop is just a few minute ride. Merritt Island is also just a few minutes away from Port Canaveral Cruise Ship Terminals and Kennedy Space Center. Lone Cabbage Fish Camp is about 15 minutes drive where you can take an airboat ride thru the St. Johns River. If you are seeking theme parks its approximately 45 minutes away from Orlando's fun parks including Disney World, Universal Studios and many more.


This city is truly one of the most unique and diverse areas of Florida. It is never overly crowded! You can always find a beach that suits you - from deserted and quiet to moderately busy and active.

Merritt Island definitely has a slower beach town atmosphere feel to it. It has all the large box stores you can imagine, but perhaps more importantly, it has kept the small Floridian specialty shops where you can find that special and unique gift.

Besides shopping, the natural beauty and wildlife nearby will astound you. From the Wildlife Nature Reserves to the protected waters of the river it is there for you to enjoy. Whether you explore it by foot, or kayak, or canoe you are sure to find something you have never sen before.

And for the active person in all of us, swimming, surfing, or just walking along the miles of beaches that are all nearby will provide you plenty of exercise .

All you need to do is show up with food and enjoy!

                            We really enjoyed having a nice clean welcoming home to use as our base. We loved all the comfortable upgrades done to the home and the information on places to visit.

                            My wife and two young boys all visted this fantastic home on Merritt Island in July of 2013. Our main reason to be in the area was to watch the launch of the Atlas V rocket, which we did from Playalinda beach. Great spot to watch from by the way. The home is in perfect condition. It is clean and spacious. The bedrooms were all fantastic and there was a very comfortable room with a television also... though we never used the TV. The majority of the time we were a the house we were in the pool area and while everything else at this home is great... it wraps around the pool and that outside space is such a cool living area. It's all screened in so you don't have to deal with bugs and there is nice outdoor funiture to relax on. There are big doors and windows facing the pool so even when the kids wanted to keep going after we were tired we were able to easily watch from inside. Did I mention we loved the pool area? The location was great as well. Probably 15 minutes from Kennedy Space Center and about 5 minutes from the beach. Be sure to go to the mexican restaraunt that they recommend in the renter's folder in the house.. it was REALLY good and close.. Perfect for the first night so that you don't have to cook... but they did have EVERYthing you'd need if you were to cook. The owner was always quick to communicate back and made everything so easy. Perfect stay. THANKS!

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for your kind review. Im so glad you had such a nice time!

                            This house was great! Loved the code entry to the door and not having to worry about keeping up with a key. The neighbors were super friendly and great! Loved having the private pool with 2 small children and that it was secured with a gate all the way around. It was clean and looked just as pictured and the transaction was very smooth. Wish we could have stayed longer...we had perfect weather the entire stay! Will def. keep in mind if we ever return!
