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!

Beautiful town home on Space Coast!
Margie's town home is perfect for a Florida/Orlando/Space Coast get-a-way. The property is impeccably clean, and situated in a quiet neighborhood. Easy access to beach, restaurants, and attractions. Will look to rent again, hopefully sooner versus later.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Margie's Cape Canaveral townhouse. She thought of everything to make the guests feel right at home. It was conveniently located to dining, grocery stores, and all sorts of things to see and do. Margie, thank you so much for allowing us to use your Cape Canaveral home. It was so comfortable and attractively decorated.
Great Location in Quiet Neighborhood
Clean and comfortable for myself, a guest, and two small children. Nice amenities and added touches that made it feel like a home away from home. Loved the peacocks and the peacock theme! Short drive to the beach and shopping and dining nearby so everything was very convenient. Looking forward to staying here again!
Great location. Cute house. Well stocked.
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
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
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😰�
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.
