About the property

6 bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14 in beds)

Luxury home with endless amenities! Relax on your private balcony off the master bedroom. Witness the most amazing sunsets! Fish off the dock. Swim in the pool or melt in the hot tub after grilling on the summer kitchen. If you love to cook, you will love the main house kitchen with granite counter tops, top of the line appliances, and subzero refrigerator!

The home does not qualify as a wedding venue. I am okay with the ceremony being in the backyard. However the reception would have to be held somewhere else.

Paddle Board and Kayak and canoe available with a $500 refundable deposit.

Take a day trip to any of the fun filled theme parks in Orlando. Or just spend the day at the beach. Take a tour of the Kennedy Space Center and then sink your teeth into some fresh caught and cooked seafood down at Port Canaveral and watch the cruise ships come in.

The dock is 250 feet long and has accommodated a 50 foot sail boat. Water is 6 feet deep at the end of the dock. Has electric and water hook-ups.

A waterfront paradise!

Perfect location for intimate weddings and receptions. Very Photographic. Featured in magazines and newspapers. Many photo shoots done here.

A big, beautiful house with awesome sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed relaxing, swimming, cooking and eating - - much of it outdoors in the beautiful pool area with a view of the dock and the prettiest sunsets one could ever imagine. There was plenty of room for our family of eight adults and eight children - - and there was lots to do in the surrounding areas. Our host/home owner was quickly available via texting and phone when we had questions. All in all a very nice vacation in a very nice location!

As Advertised, Beautiful Home, Lasting Memories!

  • 5 of 5

Toni's secluded paradise did not disappoint. The home and guest house were spotless upon arrival. All high end furnishings and appliances. The enclosed patio with pool/spa was ideal for hosing meals and entertaining our guests. The river views from inside the home, off the master deck, and patio were amazing. Great fishing off the pier. Within 20 minutes of everything one would need for any vacation/event (grocery, liquor, big box retail, salons/spas, etc.) as well as ocean-side dining/entertainment at Cocoa Beach. Toni's event coordinator was instrumental in ensuring our wedding (performed at the home) ceremony and reception were successful, despite mother nature's attempt to dampen our "big day". Would recommend this property to anyone/everyone!

Labor day weekend at Merritt Island

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views. Big Pool. Nice back yard beach. Incredible sun set. Plenty of room in the house for a big group. Just got back from a 3 day trip to Merritt Island. We all enjoyed our stay here, had a blast and created some life long memories. The kids made use of the Kayak and the wake boards and ventured into the water on their own.Rented a boat at Melborne and took the kids tubing and skiing while the adults could see from the dock . Owner Toni was very responsive and very helpful! Would strongly recommend!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11, 9 adults and 2 children, just returned from our week getaway on Merritt Island. The home was wonderful and had all of the amenities one could want while on vacation. The house is well laid out and made for ample space for everyone to spread out and feel like we were not on top of each other.

The pool was the highlight for the kids, they never left except when they went to Disney. The house has a huge kitchen with an ice maker and the outdoor kitchen has another fridge which we used for all of our beer.

The house is perfectly located within 10 minutes to a beach or many restaurants. We spent several hours on the dock fishing and looking at the dolphins and manatees. The house sits on a very large lot so the neighbors are far enough that we could see them but not hear them, and we did worry about them hearing us.

We had all rooms filled including the cottage and everyone enjoyed their room. The cottage in the kitchen is a bit outdated so it went unused, but otherwise the entire house is wonderful.

We are keeping this one on our list of future vacation spots with a large group.
