BANANA RIVER WATERFRONT WITH PRIVATE HEATED POOL

Merritt Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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.

A Perfect Vacation

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.

Property has a $1,000,000.00 view and is nicely located for many activities.
There is a heated pool for guest use. This has to be uncovered and covered each swim.
The house disappoints.
Recommended for:  Pet-friendly, Sightseeing
Owner's Response: This renter experienced a few minor plumbing issues which were easily remedied immediately. The pool cover does not need to be repositioned after each swim. The pool will stay warmer if it is repositioned at night. However we experienced an unusually warm January. So even that would not have made much difference. I genuinely believe this individual, who stayed alone with her dog, was lonely. She left almost a week early.

Perfect Getaway

I just have to share the wonderful experience my family had in renting this home for vacation.

We are from Upstate NY and vacation to Florida quite often. We have tried it all... fancy Orlando resorts, ocean side hotels, and even rented other homes, but this was by far our most enjoyable vacation.

The location of this home is perfect and you will be overwhelmed by the beauty of the view of the Banana River. Really, you can't take your eyes off of it. The property offers the perfect set up to enjoy it too. The pool is large, well maintained, and surrounded by water views. Fishing is plentiful right from the homes private dock. Kayaking on the river is an amazing experience and there is plenty of seating both in the enclosed porch and on the patio to enjoy your coffee as the sun rises or a nice adult beverage as you unwind. And be prepared to see plenty of wildlife. Dolphin will swim right up to the property! We had dolphin encounters and sightings DAILY! So playful and beautiful they are in the wild. It was a highlight of our trip. We also enjoyed watching Manatee and fish.

The house itself is comfortable and "homey". Another reviewer described it as "old Florida charm" and I couldn't agree more. It is much more spacious than the photos show. The furniture and beds are comfortable, all appliances are in working order as well as cable and internet access. You will have all the comforts of home and lack nothing. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, the owners are wonderful to work with and you are 5 minutes from the beach. You can't get anything better than this.
