Beautiful old home with plenty of room
This vacation rental was perfect. It had enough beds and room for 7 of us. It was well equipped and we especially enjoyed the deck in the mornings for our coffee and wine in the evenings. There were a lot of ants on the property, but I think that is common in warm climates. Thanks for the great stay!
Quiet, historic with great sunrises!
Our team at Ends of the Earth Cycling spent 3 nights here for our annual offsite meeting. This was the perfect setting. From the beautiful sunrises, to the front porch rockers, this was the place to be. It was really affordable and the wifi was strong. Our team of 10 adults all felt very comfortable and enjoyed the space. It's only a 1-mile walk to a nice selection of coffee and ice cream shops. Great location for cycling and close enough to Cocoa Beach, FL. We'd surely stay here again. God bless!
I am so glad that you and your group enjoyed Strong Haven. I hope that you will all come again another time and enjoy cycling the beautiful Indian River road. God bless.
We absolutely loved our stay! Highly recommended!
My family (myself and my husband, my mom and dad, my older brother, his girlfriend, and their 3 kids, and my little brother and his wife: 11 people total) all stayed at Strong Haven for a week! We absolutely loved our stay. The home was beautiful and very accommodating. We cooked out on the grill one day and cooked meals in the kitchen others! The kids loved the sandbox in the yard and it was so neat that the cover turned into benches for the kids.
We had an issue with a toilet; however, Vivian was very helpful. After I contacted her, she sent someone out the same day to fix the issue.
Overall, We all enjoyed our stay! We kept ourselves busy by watching the sunrise on the pier, boating, going to the beach, watching a NASA shuttle take off, going to the Wildlife Refuge, watching the manatees and dolphins, going to the Brevard Zoo, visiting with old family and friends, and so much more!
We highly recommend this place and we absolutely loved it! We are hoping to return next year!
So glad that you all enjoyed your stay at Strong Haven. Hope you can come again next year. Thanks so much.
Beautiful historic home with River view
We enjoyed our stay with all the comforts of home.
You can't go wrong with this place!
My family and I are from Pennsylvania and we stayed at Strong Haven while in town for a funeral service. The views of the river were wonderful and being able to spend so much time on the large front porch was great! There are lots of comfortable chairs. The home is big and has lots of seating inside as well. We have experienced times in the past when a rental home would advertise that it could accommodate 12 persons and then only have seating for half that. That is not the case with Strong Haven. Everyone agreed that the beds were comfortable and that the three FULL bathrooms was awesome and we loved that the home has central air. You really can't go wrong with this rental home. If the occasion arises, we'll rent it again!
Thank you Julie. I am so glad that you were able to relax and enjoy Strong Haven together with family. I hope you will get to come again.
A true haven for our family
We loved our time at Strong Haven. Our family had gathered from all over, and the home was perfect for the reunion with room for us to gather together as well as to have our own privacy. The kitchen had all the tools and equipment we needed available to us. Also available for use was a high chair and portacrib so we didn’t need to bring our own. The dining room and living room were both spacious enough for our family of 10. Finding beach toys, blankets and umbrellas on the screened in porch was an unexpected bonus for our trips to the ocean. Our only regret was that the Florida weather was too hot and humid for us to fully enjoy the beautifully inviting front porch. Next time we'll come when it’s a bit cooler!
So glad that your family was able to all gather together and make some good memories at Strong Haven. The house was made to be a blessing to families and relax, restore and refresh there together. Thanks for coming.
Watch space shuttle launches & visit Cape Kennedy Space museum, deep sea fishing boats at Cape Canaveral, short drive to theme parks in Orlando or relax on the beautiful beach & let the waves wash your cares away. Bike the scenic Indian River Drive or walk to historic Cocoa Village and the cute shops or catch a live play at the Village theatre. Dine out at the many nearby restaurants or cook fresh seafood from Canaveral fishing boats. Best of all, relax on the veranda and enjoy the view.
