Why Vivian Klebs chose Highland Park
This property has been a family home for several generations. The beauty of the area and breezes from the river always call one home and you cant help but feel blessed to be alive.
What makes this House unique
Swinging on the front porch while watching the many bikes and boats go by is always so enjoyable. The home is always a welcoming place to family and friends and a blessing to many. Memories are made here as new adventures are discovered.
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.
Very cute house.
The house was very homey and cute.
Everything it says it is and more!!
I had never booked anyplace like this before so I was pretty hesitant. Looking for a place for myself, my wife, my son and his wife and 2 kids (2 1/2 and 1) and my other son and his girlfriend and stumbled on this place. Everything was as clean as could be and they have everything you would need for little ones (baby gates, packnplay, high chair, etc...) Location is just perfect! Short drive to beach and about any kind of restaurant you could possibly want. We are already thinking about booking for next year already!
Thank you so much for the kind words. I am so glad that you and your family had an enjoyable time. I hope that you are able to come again and make many memories along the beautiful Indian River at Strong Haven.
A peaceful stay in a wonderful museum-like home
We looked forward to returning each night to Strong Haven. Strong Haven is full of charm, classic character, and amazing waterfront views. There was something for everyone. The children enjoyed the kids room with its cozy bunk beds. My grandson enjoyed learning how to play backgammon. The classic games provided a welcome diversion from television and video games. Friday morning we stood on the pier and watched a rocket launch. That is an experience we will never forget. Strong haven is conveniently located near the beach, shops, Kennedy Space Center, and only an hour from Orlando. We wish we had more time to enjoy this Grand Home.
Thank you so much. Hope you can come again another time and enjoy all our Space coast has to offer.
We really enjoyed staying at this historic home. The river was so beautiful. We enjoyed fishing and sitting out there in the morning. The house is fully stocked with everything you can think of. Thank you for providing that to us. The front door handle broke off and we contacted the owner. She was very prompt with her response and action. It was a pleasure staying there.
Thank you for your stay at Strong Haven. Hope you caught some good fish to eat & will return again to the beautiful Indian River.
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.
