Property description

Relax in this welcoming Beach House, just one minute walk to a beautiful flat sand beach. The Shell Beach House is a spectacular home - whether your group has ten people or two, it feels just right. This Beach House has received 30 Five-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listings since February 2014.

Location is great, as you cross only one street to reach the beach, and it’s a real sleepy beach side street only wide enough to take one car at a time.

The Shell Beach House has an oceanview sun terrace accessed by spiral staircase. It’s an outstanding spot for viewing the ocean, the stars, the sunrise, the rising full moon over the waves and rocket launches from nearby Cape Canaveral.

Included in the rental is all electricity, A/C, heating, linens, bath and beach towels, four off-street car parking spaces, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, three surf boards and body boards for people of all sizes. For families with babies, this House also provides a high chair and a pack and play.

This a new listing in Feb 2014 under new management by Liz and Jon Sayers, who have set high standards with their successful Cocoa Beach vacation rentals listed on VRBO at 457026, 438723, 644308 and 652570. The Shell Beach House was upgraded in 2014 to the same high standards. Between them, these Beach Houses have over 140 Five-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listings in the last 28 months.

At ocean level, the Shell Beach House is light and airy, with comfortable sofas in the spacious open-concept living area comprising lounge, dining area and large kitchen with social bar, all beneath tall ceilings which have a cooling effect in the Florida heat. The lounge has large screen smart HDTV. There’s also a downstairs bedroom/den, a bathroom with large shower, utility room and plenty of storage. This house also offers gas BBQ grill and a small herb garden.

The second floor has two master bedroom suites, two further bedrooms, another bathroom with large walk-in shower and a den with its own kitchenette and bar. Every bedroom in this house has its own HDTV.

The Shell Beach House is super-close to key locations including beaches, restaurants, bars, stores and the famous Cocoa Beach Pier. When you’re on the beach, look left for a front-row view of launch pads at Cape Canaveral’s Spaceport, look right for nearby Cocoa Beach Pier and gorgeous flat beaches stretching miles into the distance.

The Shell Beach House is notable for its beachside location, its ocean air and ocean views, its tall ceilings, its cleanliness, its uniqueness and the size which creates many private spaces. This is not a condo – it’s a beautifully spacious private home with no crowds, no elevators. This is all about you living right at the beach in your own private space.

Check in is after 4pm, check out before 10am.

Cocoa Beach is on a barrier island and is notable for its superb long flat beaches, friendly family atmosphere and big quiet skies, thanks to its low-rise buildings and the no-fly zone protecting Cape Canaveral. Sunrises, sunsets and moonrises over the water are often fabulous. The neighborhood around the Shell Beach House is so relaxed because it has the key benefit of being east of the four-lane A1A. There are no highways at all between the Shell Beach House and miles of sands.

“What a wonderful house! Thanks – beautiful place! ”

SK, Florida, party of seven, April 7, 2015:
“Perfect location, just off the beach in walking distance of pier and tourist area .we had great surf during our stay which topped off a great vacation, the house was very clean and well prepared for our stay all in all a great experience.”

JF, Ohio, party of five, March 31, 2015:
“We were very impressed with this home. The management did a fantastic job. And everything you would need for the beach was provided.”

DP, New Brunswick, party of eight, March 27, 2015:
“We were a group of 4 couples all over 55 and could not have been any more satisfied with this house and location. This was our 2nd year in Cocoa Beach and with Jon and Liz and we once again were provided all you could ever want in a getaway from a cold Canadian winter. The house was so spacious that in a 12 day stay we never once felt cramped for space. The pier , entertainment , shopping , groceries were all in easy walking distance and the house had all the amenities and then some. Our group was unanimous in doing all that we can to make year 3 in Cocoa Beach and with Jon and Liz a reality . Thanks so much for making our holiday one we will always remember.”

AB, Minnesota, party of twelve, March 26, 2015:
“We had a family reunion with 10 adults and two children at the house and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The first first floor bedroom was perfect for the older couple and the upstairs back apt. was just what was needed for the couple with two small children (1 and 3 years old). We were provided a high chair and pack and play for the 1 year old. This apartment (within a house) had a refrigerator/small kitchen for baby bottles, snacks etc., as well as a washer and dryer in the bathroom which also had a spacious shower for showering with the little ones. The front master bedroom was spacious and had its own private deck. All bedrooms were comfortable and had separate flat screen TVs. The first floor open kitchen, dining and living area were just right for family gatherings and hanging out. We all enjoyed morning coffee or afternoon drinks on the lovely sun deck with ocean view -- arrived two by a spiral stairway from the second floor. There were so many extras (surf & boogie boards, beach toys, coolers, beach chairs) -- everything and more than you would expect for a wonderful beach house experience!! The pier, restaurants and the beach are all walking distance. Last, but most certainly not least, Liz and Jon were helpful, friendly and responsive throughout our stay. The emails are still flying within our family about what a wonderful time we had and how this vacation house served all our needs. We are already talking about signing up for our next reunion.”

PZ, Florida, party of eight, February 25, 2015:
“My family spent a week at this wonderful beach house in Cocoa Beach to celebrate my 70th birthday. The house was perfect for our family of 7 adults and 1 toddler with plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The layout of the house couldn’t have been better. The eldest member of our party loved the bedroom on the first floor and the small apartment on the second floor was a great bonus space. The house was very clean and everything from kitchen staples, cleaning supplies, beach gear and toys were provided. All we had to do was bring our food. The beach house is in a quite location and steps away from a beautiful beach. Surf shops, miniature golf, restaurants and the Cocoa Beach pier were just blocks away. We were in close proximity to everything we needed, even an organic grocery store. My only disappointment was that we missed a rocket launch by only a few days - the view from our location would have been spectacular. Jon and Liz were absolutely wonderful hosts and could not have been more kind and helpful. This house will not disappoint and I would, without hesitation, recommend this rental to anyone. Thank you Jon and Liz for making this a very memorable vacation for our family!”

CL, Wisconsin, party of eight, February 16, 2015:
"Fantastic vacation home rental! This house was just wonderful. John and Liz had everything at the house that we could possibly need and many things we didn't know we would need! They printed out the low and high tide chart for the time we were there and emergency phone numbers, plus a complete booklet of everything about the house and the area. The house was very clean and well stocked. We had 8 people from ages 12-62 and the house worked perfect for us. We were able to grill out, cook and do laundry with ease. They provided plenty of bath towels and more than enough beach towels. The location of the house is perfect. So close to the beach and with in walking distance of stores, including Ron Jon's Surf Shop, restaurants and the Cocoa Beach Pier. They had a variety of board games, puzzles, etcetera to keep everyone entertained at night. I could go on and on but previous reviews cover much more. I would rent this house without any hesitation again!."
