The Best Kept Secret on the Beach!!
We may not be directly on the beach but we're only 200 steps from it. Our ground floor location makes it easy to grab your gear and go.
Cape Canaveral is like a little bit of old Florida. It is mostly residential and has a neighborhood feel to it. There are older homes and newer Condo's. The lifestyle is very relaxed and casual. For those of you who prefer not to deal with elevators, parking passes, and 'Condo Rules', this is the ideal place for you. Right outside your front door are chairs and a table for your morning coffee. Read the paper and enjoy the people going by - walking, jogging, or riding bicycles. The City of Cape Canaveral just put in a bike path that runs right by our place and the pedestrian sidewalk is right across the street. You'll also see many people walking their dogs as our neighborhood is very pet friendly.
This spacious 2 bedroom apartment is located on the first floor of a lovingly renovated older home. It is ideal for anyone that has problems with stairs, and has a front and back entrance so unpacking the car and taking in groceries is easy. The living room is an open floor plan to the kitchen and dining area which seats 6 comfortably. Ceramic tile throughout with the exception of carpet in the bedrooms.
It also has the added bonus of a Den with sliding glass doors which open to a small and private patio. The Den is furnished with a desk for your laptop hookup, a bookcase with games and books, a stereo for your enjoyment and a reading chair. If you would prefer something smaller in size, please ask me about my 1 bedroom unit.
Around the side of the house is an outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand from you, the beach chairs and umbrella after returning from the beach. You'll also find the BBQ grill and maybe some charcoal and lighter fluid right outside your back door.
There are beach chairs, boogie boards, a cooler and an umbrella which you are free to take down to the beach. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it. If you're lucky you might just see a rocket launch.
My husband and I are 'semi-natives' who live and work in Orlando. We both moved down to Florida from up north over 30 years ago. Having a second home so close makes weekends at the beach a reality for us.
Kathy purchased this apartment in 1997
We found ourselves spending more and more weekends at the beach and finally decided to invest in something more than a Hotel Room!!! Because we are not 'Condo' people, we chose this 4 Unit apartment building. We decided to keep one Unit for our 'get-a-away' and rent out the other three. So far, we've weathered Hurricanes, the stock market and the economy. (There was a reason the Government chose Cape Canaveral for it's Space Center!!!) Cape Canaveral offered a laid back lifestyle, a quiet beach, and friendly neighbors. It truly is a wonderful lifestyle.
The unit is located on the ground floor with front and rear access making it easy for children and pets.
Carrie and the kids returned for Mother's Day and a shuttle launch this year and left this note:
Kathy + Scott, Thank you again (and never enough!) for letting us become part of your friendship + wonderful home. Love Carrie + Kids (We will miss you guys! See you again soon !! Sarah)
The Beach House is great! Kathy thinks of everything. We had a GREAT time. Quiet, no crowd on the beach. Kids loved Kennedy Space Center, too! Thank you, Kathy!
This is my second time staying in the unit. Kathy and Scott's units make you feel at home with all their touches. We really enjoyed the welcoming gift basket. They provided beach chairs and umbrellas, which is great since they take up so much room traveling. They also have a ton of other amenities. If you forgot it, they probably have it. The beds are comfortable to sleep in, and the rooms are larger than they appear in pictures. We enjoyed grilling out on the provided grill. The beach across the street is very quiet and peaceful. If you are looking for a little more interaction, the pier is a short distance down the street with restaurants and bars. I look forward to spending future summers in their units!
Loved our stay! Safe neighborhood, no crowds, close to the beach.. perfect! So much better than staying at a hotel or condo where there are so many people so close together. The space in this house was great, so many "at home" amenities. If you forgot to bring it, it is probably already here! Kathy and Scott are so nice, thank you for the welcome basket, letting us use your fishing poles, share your home, and extend our stay! We will definitely be booking with you if we make it back to this beach!
We loved our stay at your unit. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. Access to the beach is about a football field away and an easy walk. The unit was so clean and had everything we needed to take to the beach. The full kitchen was a blessing to wake up and make our breakfast or take a lunch with us before we headed out for the day. The beach was amazing and we just loved the ocean. Our kids had their first introduction to the ocean as we live in Iowa, so it is quite a far trip for us. Our 10 year old said, "Mom, I am not going to be a farmer anymore. That dream is dead. I’m moving to Florida and going to live by the ocean and make surf boards", let's just say he loved it! Thanks SO much for a great place to stay!
We took our first real family vacation with two teenagers! We all enjoyed Kathy and Scotts condo. This is a nice little slice of Florida just steps from the beach! We are not too fond of the "busy" life and enjoyed the Cape Canveral Area. We headed north to the Port to have some great food! We used the kitchen for Breakfast and Lunch and then oven for that Frozen Pizza dinner. There were Bikes, Fishing Poles, Boogie Boards and a cooler for us to use during the week! ALL of it came in handy! So much so we're booked for next year! AND only 20 minutes from Kennedy Space Center!
My husband and I stayed at Kathy's beautiful apartment while attending the Capital One Bowl in Orlando. It fit are needs beautifully! It's a comfortable drive to Orlando while enjoying all the wonders of the Florida beaches. The villa was very clean with beautiful ceramic tile floors. It was well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen. The bedroom is large and comfortable. It's only a block or so from the beach. One of the things we enjoyed the most was walking to the pier from the house. We hope to return again in the near future! Jackie and John
We are located 1 1/2 miles south of Jetty Park and 1 1/2 miles north of The Cocoa Beach Pier on Ridgewood Ave, the closest beach road. Beach access is just out the door and 1 block east. A1A is 4 blocks west and The Orlando International airport is a 45 minute to a 1 hour drive.
