Recent Merritt Island property reviews

  • Great Vacation!

    "My recent stay at this Merritt Island property was absolutely great! I love the home and its layout with the breakfast room, bar counter and stools, and spacious rooms. Above all is the private pool and its offshoot Jacuzzi - pick where you want to relax! It was my third time there and not the last! The owners are the best, and so accommodating."

  • Serenity on the water

    "We stayed at this house for three weeks and really felt at home here. Everything that we needed to settle in was provided and the owners were helpful and close by if we had any questions or problems. We miss most watching the sunrise over the river every morning and the sense of calm that it produced. The outdoor area was breathtaking and overlooked a deep water canal with lots of wildlife. There were kayaks available to use in the river and the swimming pool was deep enough to actually swim. We found the neighborhood to be safe and were comfortable walking and exploring all over the area. It was residential in nature but close enough to have many options for eating out and shopping and taking in a movie if desired. We would definitely recommend this home for rental and would love to visit here again."

  • Vacation house on the Banana River

    "My husband and I stayed at this vacation home Jan, Feb, & March 2013. The house has fantastic views of the Banana River. The whole back of the house which is the livingroom and master bedroom is all glass. The livingroom walks out onto a deck overlooking the river, which is great for eating breakfast in the morning. The sunrises are just beautiful. Everyday you will see dolphins and manatees, we even saw Osprays catching fish and taking them to their nest just down the street. The house was very clean, the eat in kitchen has all new cabinets and floors and as you stand washing the dishes the views are great. The listing photos were helpful and the house is even nicer than the pictures show.The owner was very helpful with questions I had about the property. You can fish right off the dock and can see the cruise ships docked at Port Canaveral. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but only 1 mile to the main highway with lots of restaurants and shopping .You are only 3 miles from the ocean and Cocoa Beach. Anyone staying here will definitly enjoy the location. Laurie Mexico, N.Y."
