Private Homes house 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.

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, three bikes 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 and 438723. The Shell Beach House was upgraded earlier this year to the same high standards. Between them, the three Beach Houses we manage have over 100 Five-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listings in the last 20 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.

SB, Kansas, party of five, August 20, 2014:
“This was a wonderful house to stay in while in Cocoa Beach, FL. We had easy access to Orlando for all the fun Orlando activities. The 3 minute walk to the beautiful Cocoa Beach was so nice. The house was equipped so nicely for any age of children. Anything that we needed for the beach fun - the house had it. The kitchen was nice and open - and the multiple bedroom kept everyone happy. Thank you for helping make our FL vacation wonderful!!”

RC, party of five, August 7, 2014:
“Spectacular! The Shell House has everything--great location, great house, lots of room and a beautiful beach within walking distance. We had five in our party and everyone had privacy. The house was immaculate and well maintained. We were also very impressed with the information the owners provided us. We would, without question, recommend this rental to anyone.

EM, Texas, party of twelve, July 31, 2014:
“Just got home from a fabulous time in Cocoa Beach!! We stayed 4 nights and it was PERFECT for our family vacation. Their was plenty of room for everyone and had everything we needed and more!! Everything was set up really nice and had everything from beach towels to beach toys for the kids. All you need to take is food. I can't wait to come back to this house! Thank you so much Jon and Liz for the WONDERFUL experience. Oh and can't for get to mention that we all got to witness our first rocket launch!!

CD, Quebec, party of nine, July 20, 2014:
“Thank you very much for renting us this villa. It was perfect for us. The kids loved it! We had a great week because of you!”

BD, Missouri, party of nine, July 14, 2014:
“My family and friends stayed at the Shell Beach house for 4 nights. There were 4 adults and 5 kids all under 5 years old. We absolutely loved the house. It had tons of room and was setup for anything we could possibly need. Jon and Liz were wonderful before, during and after our stay. The house was clean, cozy and setup perfectly for a wonderful vacation. It is close to the beach and pier. The stretch of beach close to the house is not busy at all and we really enjoyed that. There are several restaurants within walking distance as well as a supermarket. Jon and Liz did so many things to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. We will NEVER stay in a hotel again and look forward to visiting their other properties some day (including returning to the Shell Beach house). I highly recommend this house!”

LJ, Indiana, party of seven, July 8, 2014:
“We had a great time!”

MM, Missouri, party of eleven, July 7, 2014:
“We only rent homes when we vacation, and this was definitely one of the most lovely homes we have vacationed in! This is a very large, beautiful, and welcoming home! It has everything you need for relaxation and fun including, coolers, beach towels, plenty of parking spaces, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, surf boards, bikes, and body boards, grill and so forth! It accommodated both our sets of grandparents very happily! It is only a minute or less walk to Cocoa Beach and a Pier is very close, too. The beach is utterly gorgeous!!! We saw fireworks from the 3rd floor deck area during our stay! Liz and Jon were very easy to work with and nice during the reservation process and throughout the week of our stay. This is a WONDERUL home!”

CF, Indiana, June 26, 2014:
“My family stayed in the Shell House for a total of 7 days. When we arrived, the house was immaculate. We were provided everything we needed for a comfortable week. The beach is a very short distance and shopping is a quick walk. We were able to eat all our meals in the house because dishes, pots and pans, and utensils were plentiful. I would ABSOLUTELY book another vacation here! We were so sad when the week came to an end.”

MG, Florida, party of four, June 12, 2014:
“We had a great time and would like to come back again.”

LR, Kansas, party of eight, June 11, 2014:
“We found the Beach House on line and liked it right away. We needed something that would accommodate all of us and be comfortable at the same time as well as affordable. This house fit our needs just perfect. Not only was the house great AND close to the beach, as they stated, but it had every thing we needed. I can't say enough of how open and sweet Jon and Liz were to us, as well as honest. I being a skeptic and very nervous about doing deals over the phone and on line, I can assure you these are the right people to make your vacation plans with. I recommend you contact them and talk to them. As sweet as they are on the phone is as honest as they are in their business transactions. My family and I would definitely return there!!!!!! I give it and Jon and Liz 5 Stars. Thanks again Jon and Liz for everything.”

TH, New Mexico, party of eleven, May 30, 2014:
“Thank you, we had a wonderful time, the house is greatly located and was perfect for our family.”
