About the Property
3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom newly listed and remodeled vacation rental. Super price!
There is a small neighborhood park located directly across the street, with a picnic area and children's play equipment. Walk through it and you are only steps from McFarland Park, a public park on the Indian River with a picnic area, dock, and boat ramp for small boats. Bicycles and a canoe are provided with the house allowing leisurely rides or paddles along Scenic Indian River Drive, with its assortment of historic mansions and charming bungalows leading you to Historic Cocoa Village.
Cocoa Village is located on the waterfront and has an assortment of unique shops, restaurants and bars (no chains or outlets here!), and the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse community theater. This charming waterfront park has a large playground and amphitheatre and hosts many festivals and concerts throughout the year. The boat ramp is ideal for launching large boats and guests can launch here and pick up the family from the dock's end at Cocoa Girl's neighboring McFarland Park.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We have always enjoyed traveling with our family and learned quickly that vacation rental homes made everyone happier and more comfortable. After renting our second home for years to long-term rentals, we decided to turn it into a vacation rental so families, like ours, could enjoy it too. We had a lot of fun remodeling the home over the past couple of years. We watched lots of HGTV! There were lots of great shopping trips to the local antique and vintage stores to doll her up. A few thrift stores too! Pete works in Melbourne for a big corporation and Donna works as a paralegal in Winter Park, FL. We both love the Cocoa area to rest after a crazy week of work. Our family and friends enjoy coming over for BBQ"s, a glass of wine and a lively game of Dominoes. Donna is a native of Florida and Pete is a 1950's immigrant from Cuba, growing up in Miami. We have two grown daughters who also live and work in the area. As always, we are currently planning our next vacation and are looking through this site for a home to rent! We hope you have a great vacation. If you stay at our place, we hope we get to meet you and hear your plans.
Why the Owner Chose Broadview Manor, Cocoa, FL, USA:
We bought this property because it in a perfect location for travel between the Orlando area and the beach. When visiting, we can quickly get back to our main home near Orlando if necessary. The house is in a quiet, family oriented neighborhood only 1 block away from the amazing Indian River. Our favorite thing to do is to take walks along the river front. We instantly relax, once the water is in view. We can quickly get to adorable Cocoa Village and be on the beach within minutes. We find that we are never in want of anything to do here. We hope to retire in this home someday.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
--Within steps of the beautiful Indian River. --Gorgeous wooden floors. --Remodeled to embrace it's 1950's retro past. --Comfortable furniture and rooms. --Nicely decorated. --Family friendly. --Pet friendly.
