Property description

Cocoa Girl Cottage is a recently remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom vacation rental home in Cocoa, Florida. This fun retro themed home is in a quiet family oriented neighborhood perfectly located one mile south of the Beachline (SR 528), between U.S. 1 and the beautiful Indian River, and is only 40 minutes from Orlando International Airport. Because it is 'off ocean' it is more reasonably priced, allowing your vacation budget to go further so you can enjoy the numerous Central Florida attractions that are all within a 60 minute drive.

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.
Recognizable nearby attractions are provided below:
- Port Canaveral and the Cruise Ships: 10 minutes. This area has lots of fun dining, a viewing tower, large boat ramp, fishing charters, and the closest beach at Jetty Park.
- Famous Cocoa Beach & Ron Jon's Surf Shop: 20 minutes.
- Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex: 25 minutes.
- Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios: Less than 60 minute drive along major interstates.

Antique and vintage shops, and unique gift and foodie shops are abundant in the area, making this a great locale for a girlfriend’s getaway. Many of the furnishings in the home are from these local haunts.

There are original heart of pine hard wood floors throughout the home and granite counter-tops and high end stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The bedrooms are large with plenty of closet space, and queen sized beds in the master and second bedroom. The third has a full sized Lazy Boy sofa bed, which is very comfortable. The bathrooms have been remodeled to embrace their retro past, with sinks placed in repurposed furniture and newly tiled with black and white retro floors. The owners have lovingly restored this home and there is a blog about the transition at

There is an efficiency apartment in the garage with a separate entrance, which the owner uses for personal storage. This area will not accessed during your stay. If you have an overflow of guests, the owner may make this apartment available for a small additional cost.

Owner info

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.
