This home is the ideal location for your Family or Winter get-away vacation! While just a 5 minute ride to beautiful Cocoa Beach, Be Warned -- you'll have a hard time leaving 'home'. Situated on a corner lot which is both riverfront and canal side, enjoy spectacular views of the sunrise and wildlife in which Dolphins and Manatee greet you throughout the day, and Osprey make spectacular dives accurately pinpointing their prey from hundreds of feet above the water. Let your children catch fish on the private dock and feed them to 'Harry' the blue Heron who will be standing nearby watching and hoping for a free lunch.
Entertain or dine on the enclosed Riverside porch and enjoy the twinkling lights of Cocoa beach just across the river, which appear as the Sun goes down. Relax in the evening breeze while the Moon sheds a soft beam directly across the rippling water to your feet.
If you can tear yourself away, every possible attraction is close by: Beautiful Cocoa Beach, Golf and Tennis, Shopping, Historic city of Cocoa, Port Canaveral, Restaurants and all Disney Theme Parks are nearby.
The house has three bedrooms: 1 King, 1 Double and 1 with two twin beds -- all nicely decorated with new furniture. There is a living room, kitchen and family room which open out to the spectacular River view with Porch and Pool.

The property is clean and the pictures featured in the listing are accurate. As other reviewers have stated bathrooms need work. But, if you go for the 'relaxing' laid-back atmosphere you won't be disappointed. We have stayed here 3 or 4 times. Annette is a dream to work with & she leaves you alone to enjoy the rental. We take our pets, our grands visit, we cook out and enjoy the view. We would always choose to stay here over any hotel in the area.
We stayed in July 2012. Great location, yard and view. The property however, needs an overhaul and the kitchen and bathrooms in need of desperate remodeling. The kids seemed unfazed, but as a homeowner I was disappointed at the general state of the interior. Would probably rent again as the kids enjoyed it so much.....at least we know what to expect next time.
Let me start off by saying the view, as another reviewer wrote, is worth $1,000,000,000. Unbelievably beautiful view - the pool? fabulous. Private yard - accessible to everything you might need (Walmart, Publix, Mall, restaurants, etc within 5 mins) it is worth overlooking some other things that were not to our satisfaction. We can make the best out of any situation and so we did. The kitchen is not equipped for a family, similar to ours, that cooks daily. Since we drove down & did not see a list of kitchen items in the listing, we brought own pots/plastic dinnerware, my sister loaned us flatware, etc. We are so happy we did!
The hall bathroom is old but okay, the en suite shower is quite ugly (we wore flip flops when using). The carpeting is on the older side, the kitchen table only has chairs for 4 - we pulled in plastic chairs to be able to eat around the table. The outdoor setting could use new cushions.... One bedroom has ceiling fan - another room has a floor fan that did not work and the 3rd bedroom has a floor fan (my husband cleaned the fan before using due to the amount of dust on it). The dishwasher went and Annette took care of it immediately - as with a plumbing issue.
Overall, if you are not going to cook much or at all, if you can overlook the dated carpeting and baths, the view makes it so worth it - the sunrises are beautiful - the daily dolphin visits incredible - and the Banana River is awesome. The water view really helps one relax and forget about things for a while....
Our week long vacation from the single digit temperatures, and countless feet of snow in New Hampshire, was exactly what the doctor ordered! This house was absolutely perfect for our needs. It was beautifully located right on the Banana River. I was able to fish right in the back yard. My wife and I were delighted with the dolphins swimming by daily too. The heated pool was wonderful along with the peace and quiet. If you're looking for excitement and night life - go to Miami. If you want to lay out in the sun, fish, relax, grill, swim, and recharge your batteries - this is the place for you. This was the first vacation in a long time where we did not want to go home. Wish we were still there.
This house was our honeymoon house in 2009. It was private and relaxing! We could swim when ever we chose and didn't have to worry about a busy beach. We saw dolphins daily come to the doc and swim by. We also vacationed here a SECOND time, the following year and it was just as good as the first year. We watched a shuttle launch from the back porch!
This is our 8th VRBO rental and one of the very best. The house exceeded all the expectations ... comfortable, private, nicely located and pet friendly. We had towed our center console boat down, but found we used it only a little. The fishing off the sea wall was great, the dolphins and manatees made daily visits and the pool was perfect. We found lounging at pool side to be the perfect unwind. We hope to return very soon and that maybe the best indication of how welcome we felt.
