Property description

Relax in this welcoming Beach House, just one minute walk to a beautiful flat sand beach. The Shell Beach House is a spectacular home - whether your group has ten people or two, it feels just right. This 5-bed, 4-bath Beach House has received over 40 Five-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listings since February 2014.

Location is great, as you cross only one street to reach the beach, and it’s a real sleepy beach side street only wide enough to take one car at a time.

The Shell Beach House has an oceanview sun terrace accessed by spiral staircase. It’s an outstanding spot for viewing the ocean, the stars, the sunrise, the rising full moon over the waves and rocket launches from nearby Cape Canaveral.

Included in the rental is all electricity, A/C, heating, linens, bath and beach towels, four off-street car parking spaces, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, three surf boards and body boards for people of all sizes. For families with babies, this House also provides a high chair and a pack and play.

This is a new listing in Feb 2014 under new management by Liz and Jon Sayers, who have set high standards with their successful Cocoa Beach vacation rentals listed on VRBO at 457026, 438723, 644308 and 652570. The Shell Beach House was upgraded in 2014 to the same high standards. Between them, these Beach Houses have over 220 Five-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listings in the last 37 months.

At ocean level, the Shell Beach House is light and airy, with comfortable sofas in the spacious open-concept living area comprising lounge, dining area and large kitchen with social bar, all beneath tall ceilings which have a cooling effect in the Florida heat. The lounge has large screen smart HDTV. There’s also a downstairs bedroom/den, a bathroom with large shower, utility room and plenty of storage. This house also offers gas BBQ grill and a small herb garden.

The second floor has two master bedroom suites, two further bedrooms, another bathroom with large walk-in shower and a den with its own kitchenette and bar. Every bedroom in this house has its own HDTV.

The Shell Beach House is super-close to key locations including beaches, restaurants, bars, stores and the famous Cocoa Beach Pier. When you’re on the beach, look left for a front-row view of launch pads at Cape Canaveral’s Spaceport, look right for nearby Cocoa Beach Pier and gorgeous flat beaches stretching miles into the distance.

The Shell Beach House is notable for its beachside location, its ocean air and ocean views, its tall ceilings, its cleanliness, its uniqueness and the size which creates many private spaces. This is not a condo – it’s a beautifully spacious private home with no crowds, no elevators. This is all about you living right at the beach in your own private space.

Check in is after 4pm, check out before 10am.

Cocoa Beach is on a barrier island and is notable for its superb long flat beaches, friendly family atmosphere and big quiet skies, thanks to its low-rise buildings and the no-fly zone protecting Cape Canaveral. Sunrises, sunsets and moonrises over the water are often fabulous. The neighborhood around the Shell Beach House is so relaxed because it has the key benefit of being east of the four-lane A1A. There are no highways at all between the Shell Beach House and miles of sands.

Comments received from recent Guests:
SW, Utah, party of four, February 14, 2016:
“I just wanted to send you a "thank you" for such a lovely beach house. My sons and I so enjoyed staying there. Thank you for being so accommodating when we were trying to figure out just where we were to be and when. We really appreciated the heads-up for the missile launch. We watched it from the beach. Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying in such a lovely, clean, well appointed property. Again, thank you.”

DW, Saskatchewan, party of eight, January 29, 2016:
“We really loved the facility. It was great for what we wanted. To bad the dollar exchange is so much. We really enjoyed our stay, thanks again.”

DB, Kentucky, party of ten, January 20, 2016:
“The shell house was very clean & had updated furnishings. It is perfect for large families. It is very close to the beach.”

LS, Saskatchewan, party of eight, January 17, 2016:
“It is a gorgeous house a few minutes walk from the beach. There is so much space and there are many fun beach toys available. We had everything we needed in the kitchen as well. We received an excellent package of information about the house prior to our arrival as well as welcoming emails from the hosts.”

MG, Pennsylvania, party of fourteen, January 2, 2016:
“Perfection in Cocoa Beach. Our whole family went on a cruise this year and decided that we would rent a house and go down early. We needed something for 12-14 people. As it turned out we found a perfect place half block from the beach and walking distance to everything. The house was perfect for all of us. Everything that we would or could possibly need was there. There was a bedroom on the lower level with a full bathroom If someone could not do stairs. There was plenty of space. And the property managers (Jon and Liz) could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Even my retired tough as nails military father who never likes anything wants to go back for a couple of weeks. High praise from him! I highly recommend staying here. you will not be And one other thing...we are not a quiet bunch and when in our bedrooms at night you never heard anyone that stayed up later than others.”

GV, Michigan, party of eight, December 27, 2015:
“Very nice beach house. Easy walk down a dead end street to the beach. Walked to Ron Jon's, less than a mile along the beach. Had a great time. The house was comfortable and clean. Fit 8 of us, no problem. Beds were comfortable. Jon and Liz are great hosts. Lots of amenities. We would stay here again.”

LS, Alberta, party of eight, December 21, 2015:
“Our family really enjoyed our five day stay at the large Shell Beach house. Liz was just leaving the property as we arrived and welcomed us warmly and shared some local information. The house was very clean and very well equipped and only a very short walk to the beach. It was close to many great restaurants and we bought groceries at the nearby store for meals we ate at the house. We had a wonderful time and would recommend it! Jon's communication with us was prompt and informative.”

MR, Georgia, party of ten, December 3, 2015:
“We spent the week of Thanksgiving at the Shell House with eight adults and one teenager. The house is large, comfortable and very well equipped. The house is just steps from the beach, and only a short walk from the Cocoa Beach Pier. Everything you need to enjoy a week at the beach is available. Property managers John and Liz were very helpful and easy to work with both prior to and during our stay. We enjoyed our time here, and I can easily recommend it.”

LS, Alberta, party of eight, November 24, 2015:
“Thanks for the opportunity to experience cocoa beach and your lovely beach house. We really enjoyed our stay and you had everything for us to make our stay convenient. It has been a very positive experience for our first stay in Florida. It is a lovely house with lots of room we never felt crowded.”

MH, Wisconsin, party of eleven, November 13, 2015:
“We enjoyed the house and area very much.”

LL, Florida, party of six, November 6, 2015:
“Terrific place for a terrific price! Spent 3 nights for mom's birthday reunion and celebration. Lovely home, lots of rooms, and Jon and Liz were quite hospitable. The beach was right there and very beautiful. Best of all, we were there for a satellite rocket launch from the Cape! Highly recommend the Shell to all!”

NM, Florida, party of six, October 26, 2015:
“This home was absolutely perfect. We had a wedding to attend and shared the house with our son and his family. The way the home is set up it gave everyone the privacy that they need.”

MJ, Illinois, party of six, October 21, 2015:
“Want to thank Jon and Liz for an enjoyable stay at the Shell Beach House. The layout was perfect for the group and gave us a chance to be together as a family. We had an even larger group over for an evening meal and all had room to enjoy. Jon and Liz were very accommodating with our early arrival and late checkout. We will certainly be back in the future.”

LH, Arizona, party of six, October 5, 2015:
“I just wanted you to know. Enjoyed our stay immensely. We will strongly consider a repeat. Your accomodations lack for nothing. Very hospitable. Feels like a nice home.”
