About Elsa McDonnell
Experienced vacation rental owner - 3 years in Holland, and over 3 years in Florida. I know you worked hard for this trip and do my utmost to make sure everything is to your liking. I will check in with you the first day to make sure all is well, and will only be a phone call away. I pay attention to little details, like leaving the necessary supplies so you don't have to run to the store right away- i.e. coffee, creamer, sugar, toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies etc. There are plenty of books, games, floaties, boogie boards, for the kids too.
Elsa McDonnell purchased this Townhome in 2013
Why Elsa McDonnell chose Cocoa Beach
I offer one of the cheapest accommodation that is so close to the beach yet I did not skimp on the comfort & quality of the beds and furniture. it sleeps 7 guests easily without being too cramped, modern updated interior with leather couches, led tvs, lightning fast wifi, and extra things like boogie boards for the kids and 2 beach bikes (free). The kitchen has plenty of everything, and if you wish to bbq, there is one in the yard in the back. The beach here is less crowded than the pier area, which is especially nice for families with kids so you can easily keep track of them while they are playing near or in the surf! The neighbors are very nice and you will feel like a true Cocoa Beach local because you live among them rather than a huge condo building or hotel. A hose to rinse off the sand is in front. Beach chairs, umbrella, wheeled cooler, beach towels, ample off-street parking, it's great value for your money! Be my guest!
What makes this Townhome unique
If you love nature and sunshine, you will find yourself in paradise. Sea turtles, spoonbills, cardinals, pelicans, cranes, dolphins, manatees, alligators, sharks, lots of different ocean fish to catch - it is a great place for a vacation. And so many things to do and to visit - yet not overcrowded which makes it so nice.

Great vacation spot, close to beach and convenient to main attractions in Cocoa Beach.
Condo was large enough for everyone and had all the conveniences of home. The owner was very obliging to all our requests and it was located in a quiet family area with easy access to the main strip in Cocoa Beach. Two minute walk to a beautiful beach and all beach amenities were available at the condo so no need to bring your chairs and umbrellas. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here and hope to return again.
Very short walk to Beach
Our 2 story, 3 BR townhouse unit had everything our family needed. It’s located in a quiet area and is only a short drive to stores and restaurants. The easy walk to the beach takes about 3 minutes. The property is is well maintained and has ample parking. We were very satisfied and Elsa was helpful and accommodating.
This was the perfect place for our family to stay while they visited us from out of state. We were able to enjoy them while giving them extra space to relax.
Clean, quiet and very close to the beach
We felt at home from day one. Lots of beach toys, boards, games, books and the kitchen had everything we needed. Very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The beach is really close. The only recommendation we have is to fix the light above the door, it was hard to see the code on the door. We will definity return.
The townhouse was very close to the beach which is exactly what we were looking for.
The townhouse was very nicely decorated and had everything we needed as if it were our very own.
Needs A Serious Professional Cleaning and Safety Check
We've used VRBO for 4 years & have never been disappointed until now. For 15 years I worked in the hospitality field & realize how unrealistic & demanding guests can be, so I did some serious consideration before writing this review. The property is in a wonderful location; only a block from the beach, there is ample parking & conveniently located to area attractions. On the other hand, it was filthy & I have the photographs to prove it. There was black mold in the shower of the main bathroom. Food was lodged between the right side of the stove & the countertop. All the baseboards need to be scrubbed, as well as the grout in the tile floors. There was rust on the shower curtain rod, towel rack & medicine cabinet in the main bathroom. We found a tube of mascara & an old potato chip bag in a closet of one of the bedrooms. Rotten wood around the front door frame inside & out. Outside lights don't work.The upstairs smoke detector was missing the battery & hanging from down from the ceiling. The smoke detector in the kitchen was installed correctly & had a battery, but it didn't work either. 4 bicycles were outside for guest use, but were so rusty (handles, pedals, chains, etc.), they were unsafe. The caulking & actual bodies of the toilet paper holders & towel racks were filthy. They have a brand new washer & dryer, which are beautiful, but the washer door needs to be left open so the rubber gasket can dry out. I pulled 3 paper towels full of black slime out of the gasket. There's more, but no room to write it here. We arrived about 4:30 p on Saturday & admittedly I did not call VRBO until Tuesday a & the owner until early Wednesday a. At neither time was I rude, nor did I even ask the owner or VRBO for any financial reimbursement. Because this is the only vacation we take every year & so important to our family (we celebrate 3 very special "family" events during this time), I didn't want to leave, but hoped the owner would send over a professional cleaning company for a thorough cleaning while we were at the beach. The owner first admitted place needed some updating; then took personal offense, when I said it was dirty. Owner admitted condo being cleaned by them and business partner. The comment "you Americans expect too much for what you pay," was inappropriate. We cut our vacation short 3 days. Being reimbursed our damage fee only. I left the townhouse as clean as possible - towels, floors, sheets and dishes all clean. Please Don't Stay Here
The family staying before you and after you left great reviews (see other websites too). I have a guestbook on the table (5 yrs) full of great reviews. Calling me after 4 days to complain is typically a ploy to get a discount which I was not willing to give, sorry. I would have immediately tried to remedy it but that was not an option you wanted to hear.
You omitted to tell me you brought a large retriever dog over 30 lbs which my HOA does not approve and my listing states this.
You left the house in a terrible state with doghair all over (we made pix), microwave filthy, oven all dirty etc. it took us considerable time to clean.
