About Margie Starke

My husband and I have been married 36 years and have raised 4 children together and are near empty nesters. We have a home south of Chicago with extra space since our kids have moved out on their own that we are renting and a getaway in Cape Canaveral Florida that we rent out while we are back home in Chicago. Come, be our guest and enjoy our hospitality.

Why Margie Starke chose Cape Canaveral

Our daughter moved away from our home near Chicago to be near family and go to school. Once down there she fell in Love and did not want to come home. We miss her so much and know we are bound to bounce between these 2 states in our retirement years as our 3 boys are still up in Chicago. We are excited about our future getaways from Chicago winters to Cape Canaveral, Florida. What's so great about Cape Canaveral??? Well there's Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic Ocean! My favorite thing to do is walk on this beach with the warm waves splashing on my ankles. A 7 mile walk seems like nothing as we walk from Cape Canaveral to Cocoa Beach. The Pier becomes a perfect halfway point and the view is just breathtaking. Most times a cruise ship is in view and one of these days we plan to take one. Then there's Kennedy Space Center where you can view some our countries richest history of the past half century! Orlando is only 45 minutes away and there are endless attractions and restaurants there. The weather they say is about 5 to 10 degrees cooler than south Florida and the traffic is supposed to be worlds better than the gulf or South Florida. Many times, it looks like a private beach however we have been there during some busy times. I feel this area is a hidden gem . . .an amazing, down to earth get a way with some of my favorite small town eating places.

What makes this townhome unique

The town home on our quiet cul de sac is very home like. You won't feel like a tourist but like you belong there. The neighbors are very friendly yet keep to themselves. Traffic isn't so crazy as I think most tourists head for the gulf or South Florida. As for me . . . there's nothing like Cocoa Beach and the warm waves of the Atlantic Ocean splashing on my feet. This will ALWAYS be my favorite getaway!

Bring your clothes and hit the beach

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to review so it'll be our secret!! We had an awesome stay. Everything has been thought of in this property.

Had to be one of the cleanest spaces we've ever rented.

Walking or biking to the beach was easy you can access on the blocks to left or right with ease. Gated community on the direct access street but it doesn't slow you down as it's only one mile from door to shore.

The beach is amazing I was able to swim two days of our winter stay.

You'll love La Cantina right across the street we ate there four times and didn't get tired of it or disappointed by it. We also enjoyed the Cocoa Beach pier bar, can't describe the thrill out there at the end with the birds and breeze.

Kennedy's lamp post was fun for nights out we love to go for karaoke and that's a great spot. We had a great ride on the motorcycle South on A1A where we found a hidden gem in the Bikini bar.

Everyone here was so friendly and I know we will return to the cape as soon as possible.

Owner is super nice and very easy to reach although we had zero issues to report. I definitely recommend the home, and the area.

Great location. Cute house. Well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

I’d like to start this review by urging you to disregard the poor review on this listing- it’s completely unfounded. We just wrapped up a very enjoyable 6 night stay. We could not have asked for a more convenient location. It is a little bit off of the main roads to be quiet, but also only a short distant from many attractions and activities. This is a great place to stay if you have a well behaved dog. There is a small yard and patio away from all the cars and many quiet neighborhoods to stroll down and explore.

I also commend the owner on the cleanliness of this property. It was virtually spotless. And we also appreciated that everything worked! All the lights, windows, appliances, etc... when you stay at lots of inexpensive places, you get used to some things not being operational, but this place does not have that problem.

While the beach is not far away, this is not a beachfront place. The nearest is a 15 minute walk, but there is not much parking. There are a few others close by. Overall, the quiet but central location made up for the short distance to the beach. The owner also has a couple bicycles that she will loan you if you ask her.

Speaking of the owner, she was not physically but reachable, making her the perfect person to rent from. She provided us with all the info about the rental ahead of time and was easy to contact when we had a question about something. The place was very thoughtfully stocked with some essentials- lots of towels, cleaning supplies and a few toiletries. The washing machine in the unit is a huge bonus! There is a dishwasher but we just hand-washed and used the dish drying rack that is also provided. The area is also teeming with peacocks, which adds some interest if you don’t mind the calls in the morning.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this property If you’d like to be centrally located in Cocoa Beach/Canaveral, but not be in a big city setting. A reasonable owner is also a huge bonus. We were grateful to find a great place to stay during our visit and we will definitely be staying again if we wind up in this part of the world again.

Not as portrayed

  • 1 of 5

We booked in August, paid final half in January, then in February we were charged

an additional $300 for tax everyone somehow "forgot to mention".

The unit could accommodate 4, but not likely 6 as claimed. It has nice seashore décor,

but it's 8/10th mile to beach parking. [ not 3 blocks ] We did enjoy the beach and eateries.

Unfinished small deck has only 2 chairs. No instructions for trash or recycle.

On our first day we cleaned the stove, refrigerator, and bathtubs.

Original listing showed garage, but is now removed from use. We were there for a month and observed noisy cars and peacocks crying at all hours. A short stay might be OK

but we can't recommend it for longer terms. Nearby were listings with more amenities

and their listed pricing states clearly; "plus tax".

Beware of additional taxes

  • 1 of 5

Place was nice but.........An additional $84.15 was deducted from my “damage deposit” a full week after we left the property. Owner said it was for state tax that homeaway or renter forgot to quote when we booked and paid in advance. Owner was not willing to negotiate or split the difference. Very unfair, as we ended up paying more than quoted😰?

Owner's Response: This is not an additional tax this is a vacation tax that is taxed on every rental property or hotel room any guest would rent in Florida. I tried to explain this to Jan that for some reason Home Away did not add charge to her initial bill. When it came to my attention that it was not charged I contacted Home Away and they suggested I send a special request. Jan for some reason thought I was responsible for the vacation tax but it’s a tax to the people who rent not a tax to the host. I’m so sorry that she wasn’t more understanding. I know she was happy at my place. I contacted her several times and she was happy while she stayed and I know my place was very well worth what she was charged. Jan was a wonderful guest and I would welcome her back anytime.She took care of my place as if it was her own and I can’t say in enough words how much I appreciate when I guests take care and are considerate of our rules and property. I hope we could put this behind us as I would welcome her back again anytime.
