Our family has been living on Merritt Island off and on for over 40 years. We still have relatives here that have never left. I grew up here watching Apollo Launches from our backyard. My father supported our family at Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo Space Program. When the program ended, we relocated, leaving two adult siblings behind.

I returned to Merritt Island as a young adult, purchased a home, attended college and worked on the Space Shuttle Program, then left the area for the second time. With each move, I knew I would return home to Merritt Island. Now we are blessed to own a home on Merritt Island once more and plan to retire here.

We love to go to the beach, dine at waterfront resturants, swim, observe wildlife, see awesome sunsets and sunrises and feel the constant ocean breezes! We also love the warm winters!

Carol purchased this house in 2011

We chose this home because it is located in a safe, family neighborhood, is close to our family and friends, its central location and closeness to shopping and fun things to do. It is easy to zip to the beach or Orlando.

The best thing about staying in our home is more privacy, more comfort and more room to spread out and 'do our own thing. Having a private pool just outside the back door is a wonderful luxury that is simply priceless.

Great Place To Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
We found Merritt Island to be the ideal Florida vacation spot and Carol’s Island Home is absolutely our first choice accommodation. Located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood it is within convenient driving distance of many Florida attractions. Cocoa Beach is only 10 minutes from the house. Other local attractions such Kennedy Space Center, the Merritt Island National Nature Preserve, Manatee Park, and Cape Canaveral are close by. One evening we monitored a NASA launch countdown on the large screen smart TV in the den and then stepped out onto the front lawn to watch the rocket lift off. It was an awesome experience! Orlando and it’s many attractions are also within easy driving distance. On several occasions we had overnight guests and every one them commented on the beauty, comfort and convenience of Carol’s home.

Carol’s home is nicely appointed, comfortable and spacious. Even with three teenagers and three adults in residence there was always plenty of space for everyone to pursue their favorite activity whether it was watching TV, surfing the Internet, visiting, playing board games, hanging out at the pool, or just finding a quiet corner to read. If you like to read or watch movies an annual membership at the Merritt Island Public Library, with its extensive collection of books and movies, is only $15.

We found Carol to be an excellent landlord. She is easily accessible and goes out of her way to make sure your visit is enjoyable and trouble free. We plan to go back to Carol’s Island Home often.

Our family weekend getaway at Carol's Island Home was wonderful. We found the home to be extremely comfortable and clean, the tropical furnishings and setting were lovely, and everything we needed was provided. The owner was conscientious in answering our questions ahead of time which helped ensure a delightful stay for us, our children and our grandchildren. I would certainly recommend Carol's Island Home .. you won't be disappointed. .

This property was beautiful and very clean. The pool sparkles and is well-maintained. The location is great--close to the beaches and 1 hour to all the Orlando attractions. the property is private and very comfortable with all the comforts of home. I would highly recommend this property.

TMI visit

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carol's Island Home! She had everything provided we needed AND wanted...washer/dryer, well stocked kitchen with pantry items (like brownies and canned goods):-), swimming pool with floats, balls, etc., lots of pool towels, extra sheets and blankets, 2 living rooms (one for reading and watching the kids swim through the glass doors/windows and the other for t.v./movie watchers, on and on...beautifully decorated... It was home away from home! Home without all the distractions! Only lots of FUN for the whole family. Her home provided privacy as one of the living rooms was able to be blocked off with doors to offer another "bedroom". It was PERFECT! Carol's home is a place we would like to visit again, and definitely tell of our friends to stay there! Carol was very personable to speak with on the phone...kind and considerate! Thanks Carol!
