About Mark Bostrom

I've lived in Cocoa Beach since 1985. I love it here. I enjoy offshore fishing, surfing, river fishing,the beach and all water activities. We have a quiet dead end street with very nice neighbors. I'm sure you will fall in love with our small town, island style living.

Mark Bostrom purchased this house in 1999

Why Mark Bostrom chose Cocoa Beach

I choose this property because it had the best of both worlds. The river and the beach. We are centrally located in the middle of Cocoa Beach. Across the street from the beach and next to Lori Wilson Park, an ocean front park with nature trails. Just minutes from downtown and Port Canaveral.

What makes this house unique

The home is situated on the beautiful Banana River. There are views of the river from every room in the house. The backyard has a huge dock with a boat lift, a seating area and gas grill. The place is made for relaxing and entertaining. You will enjoy seeing dolphins, fish, manatees and many varieties of birds from the backyard. You will find bikes in the garage for taking bike rides on the beach for miles and miles of fun. We also have beach chairs and an umbrella for relaxing on the beach. Everything you need is furnished with this home. Come and enjoy of piece of our paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

FRAT house not family home

  • 1 of 5

House is in desperate need of TLC & lysol. Could not enter game room at all due to cigarette/cigar odors and mildew smell. Spent over $40 on air fresheners and still never opened door to game room again. Entire house was never cleaned due to "cleaning service" canceling... luckily owner's friend informed us and came over to swifter the floors. Dirty towels, unmade beds, no doorknob on master bath door, shower curtain full of mildew, guest bath shower knobs fall off, toilets run constantly, washer/dryer (each have to be over 15 yrs old) located in cluttered musty garage, just a few things unacceptable for the price we paid. After 5 hours of traveling, we expected a clean house - not one where WE made the beds and bought cleaning supplies to clean bathrooms & kitchen. Owner could not have stepped foot in this house for months. This property is NOT SUITABLE for anyone who wants to truly be ON vacation!

Owner's Response: I am in shock reading this. We have a professional cleaning service that cleans properties for a living. They pride themselves in their work and have been in the business for over 15 years, with a 5 star rating. The people arrived 4 hours early and located the key that was left for the maid. They were not to check in until 3:00-4:00 and still walked in like they owned the place before check in time before the maid service arrived. They refused the maid service and wanted to clean themselves because the lady wanted her own supplies.... Some people you cannot ever please. I take pride in my beautiful home and pay top dollar to make sure everything is always tip-top shape.

Great beaches!

  • 3 of 5

Perfect location! Everything you need is so close. The house is great with the exception of the garage. Lots of space and great entertainment room. My only main complaints are that the owner never informed of hidden fees/deposit and hot tub was not usable upon arrival. I was told on the day I arrived I owed a deposit. And when I asked for the deposit back a couple days after checking out.. I was told that I didn't leave a cleaning fee so it will be deducted from the deposit! I assumed all fees were paid with my rental fees and if there was such fees, it would be on owner website or documentation upon arriving...Not the case. I would give this place 5 stars if it wasn't for these issues.

Owner's Response: In response to these issues. There are many properties on VRBO. I don't know of any that don't charge a cleaning fee. We do and so do all others properties on the site. They were told in advance about the cleaning fee of 120.00 plus a security/ damage deposit of 500.00 that is due within 30 days of arrival or you can buy and insurance coverage through VRBO for $29.00. If we don't protect our property and a renter breaks something or steals something how are the owners going to recover their loses? Hot tub issue: they got into the hot tub with oils and lotions and lots of sand. It clogged the filters and I wasn't told until the day before they left. We had it cleaned the very next day. For all of those that read this: Please shower off or rinse off before using the jacuzzi. We thank you very much in advance!!

Owner is sloppy

  • 1 of 5

Very unorganized owner. The location was beautiful, shame that the attention of the owner isn't. Before setting out to the location, we were informed to pay the deposit when we arrived and not via PayPal. We asked several times when do we pay the deposit and how, only to be scolded 2 days into our trip that we hadn't paid it and pay immediately through paypal. We also inquired about using the garage for our cars. The owner said yes, only to discover when we arrived it was full of household items.

We informed the owner that the hot tub was dirty, I mean scum on the top of the water dirty. He said he would get a crew out, we told him a good time. Never happened until the last night so we had a lukewarm tub apparently he never got the email of when was a good time. Post it notes told us not to touch the air con, so nice freezing nights and the games room didn't even have air con until again the last night.

4 weeks later and 8 phone calls/emails no return deposit, but lots of excuses. Had to contact vrbo, hopefully they will sort this out. I'm sure there will be more excuses to come, again blaming his bookkeeper.

Not a great way to run a business.

Owner's Response: Not the way it happened. These guest were told there would be a damage deposit due within 30 days of arrival. They were in fact told many times but did not respond. As for the hot tub..the prior guests used the tub with suntan oil on and it clogged the filter. The filter was ordered and they were told it would be a few days. The maintenance man was one day late emptying the hot tub and replacing the filter. In reference to the deposit it was returned to the wife's account less the cleaning fee which they did not leave for the maid. My place is beautiful and always clean. Some people you just cannot please and will complain about anything and everything. I answer my phone everytime it rings so that issue with not answering calls and is totally untrue. In regards to the A/C not being touched...the note says please do not put below 74 in the game room because the unit gets so cold at that temp it will freeze up, it said nothing about raising the temp or turning it off. The unit is brand new. As i stated before some people you can never please.

Lori Wilson Park, Across the street 8 houses down
Car: not necessary

My house is located on Bahama Blvd. at the end of the street is A1A and the beach. I live in a very safe, beautiful development just 1 block away from delicioius restaurants and shops and less that a mile to Downtown Cocoa Beach. I am across the street from Lori Wilson Park. A beautiful park on the beach with showers, gazebos, picnic tables, and places to grill. If you are interested in going on kayak adventures, ramp road is just 1.5 miles away where you can rent kayaks and encounter Cocoa Beach's thousand islands. This is always a great way to sight see as you explore thorugh mangrove tunnels and explore wildlife all around you such as manatees, exotic birds, dolphins and much more. Cocoa Beach's thousand islands runs in the Banana River where you can also go fishing, rent boats, jet skis, and go parasailing just over the bridge. The Cocoa Beach country club is located at the end of Minutemen Cswy, less than 2 miles away, including twenty-seven spectacular holes on the beautiful Banana River along with tennis courts, and an Olympic size swimming pool, kitty-pool and water slide. Cocoa Beach is also famous for Ron Jon's Surf World's famous Ron Jon Surf Shop open 24 hours a day, 365 days a week; Located less than 5 minutes away! When you are finished sopping, check out the Cocoa Beach Pier which is right down the street. The Cocoa Beach Pier is always exciting, full of people, shops, and restaurants. Enjoy a nice meal and walk to the end where there's a tropical tiki bar which you can enjoy watching the surfers and the gorgeous sunset. Just minutes from the pier we have the second largest port in the U.S., Port Canaveral. If you enjoy fishing, Port Canaveral has fishing charters that will take you deep sea fishing for the day or you can go out gambling on a day cruise on the Victory Casino Cruise Line. There are also weekend criuses that you can take out of Port Canaveral that go all through the Carribean if you want a quick getaway

All theme parks, water parks, and hot air ballooning, are just a short 45 minute ride away to Orlando, FL. See world famous Walt Disney World, (Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Typhoon Lagoon, and Blizzard Beach) also, Universal Studios, and Islands of Adventures for those who are thrill seekers!
