The Best Kept Secret on the Beach!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to scroll down to find us, or we wouldn't be the best kept secret on the beach!! Our reviews are testimony to that. We hope that you will come and stay with us and join our family. Many of our guests return yearly to visit and we look forward to having them.

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.

About Kathy

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.

We are also self proclaimed "Space Babies" and are so happy that the space program started up again. The thrill of a launch never gets old and is exciting the 25th time as it was the first!!

Kathy purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Kathy chose Cape Canaveral

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.

What makes this apartment unique

The unit is located on the ground floor with front and rear access making it easy for children and pets.

We pride ourselves on the personal care we give each guest and will go out of our way to do all possible to make sure you have an enjoyable visit. You will never receive this attention to detail in a Hotel which makes us truly unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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)

Just come as you are and relax.

  • 5 of 5

Don't worry, be happy. Pack a bathing suit, shorts and shades. That's all you need because Kathy has supplied everything else from coffee to towels, ice maker to clothes washer, shampoo to charcoal. Just come as you are and enjoy the peaceful Cape beaches. My family spent all 7 days at the beach morning and night (we were lucky to catch the July 4th Cocoa Beach celebration on the beach).

Don't hesitate, just book this property and relax. Cable tv, WiFi, laundry, board games, library, lounge chairs, 12 piece table settings, wine glasses, hi-ball glasses, toaster oven, sugar flour and seasonings. All here. Supermarket 12 blocks away. Liquor store 8 blocks. Gas 4 blocks. Beach 1 block. Can't beat it. Watch the cruise ships leave from the beach almost every day. Grassy back yard for the dog. My tweens loved having their own room with tv to 'camp out' in. I enjoyed the office area to do just a few minutes of work each day.

If you want a carefree seaside stay, just call Kathy or Scott and book this place. Thanks again Kathy for the cake and the memories.

Outstanding Stay at the "Beach House"

  • 5 of 5

We had a great one month stay at “The Beach House” in Cape Canaveral. Location, location, location – across the street from the beach access, beautiful strip of beach, watched rocket launches and cruise ships depart, wide walking/biking path outside your door, and grocery stores and restaurants close by. The apartment itself had all the comforts of home with a fully stocked kitchen and assortment of linens, beach equipment and great wash off area, 2 bedrooms plus flex room (we used as an office), comfortable bathroom, televisions in all rooms, cable, internet, and ample parking. Kathy and Scott were very easy to deal with and flexible, and allowed us to bring our small dog. We felt so comfortable and lucky to have found such a great place that we took great care of the beach house and received a beautiful note from Kathy thanking us. We were transitioning between homes and found a treasure that felt like home in Cape Canaveral. Thanks for making our stay wonderful!

Wonderful location and even better hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and our children were taking our first vacation together and we were nervous to say the least. The minute we walked into the condo, all of our fears left. The place was so beautiful, and much bigger than we thought it would be. Kathy, the owner was a complete gem. Not only was there a welcome basket (with home baked goodies) but a great binder with restaurant menus, places of interests and her own personal reviews. It was a huge help with 5 kids!! Anything you could possibly need was there all ready. Beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, umbrella, you name it. Being less than a block from the beach kept the kids happy (and us as well!) We are already planning our next trip back! Thank you so much for opening your home to us and for such a wonderful time.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a hidden gem in Cape Canaveral Beach! It is conveniently located just one block from a quiet and beautiful section of the beach (busier sections are near Jetty Park by the port and down in Cocoa Beach.) There is 'Canaveral Meats & Deli' just a few blocks away, and the supermarket, Publix, is just up the road in the other direction. There is also a convenient store/gas station four blocks away. And there are fresh seafood markets in the port just a mile or two away.

As if all this wasn't enough, it is Kathy's personal touch that won my heart for 'home away from home'. For starters the unit was immaculately clean. And she has thought of everything in the way of essentials! The full kitchen is completely stocked with all dishes, pots & pans, utensils, wine glasses, and even spices - awesome for my partner and me since we love to cook. We ate dinner at 'home' every night. The bathroom was stocked with quality bath soaps and lotions. There were extra towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas...the list goes on and on.

The details that took it over the top were Kathy's homemade dessert cake made just for us and the little welcome gift. Of course, upon meeting her in person, we were sure that we were home.

No doubt this is a one-of-a-kind experience. We will be back!

Fantastic getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed here for our anniversary in June and had an awesome time. The condo was absolutely perfect...Kathy has thought of all the little details to make the trip great! You don't need to worry about a thing so much is provided including beach towels, cooler, beach chairs. Very clean cutely decorated condo!! Very short stroll to the gorgeous uncrowded beach. Very convenient location just minutes to Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral. Looking for a place for dinner? Browse through the menus that Kathy has in a binder for you. I can't wait to come back and stay again!!! Highly recommend!!!!!!

Precious Beach Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This Beach Apartment was absolutely wonderful just as the pictures detail. This was our first vacation to rent homes rather than hotels and we are hooked. Kathy has the kitchen completely stocked with everything you could possibly want or need. I cooked a lot, but there were wonderful restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, etc very close and easy to access. The extremely short walk to the beach allowed us to come and go often. The beach was amazingly clean, quiet, and peaceful. We cherished being able to enjoy the water by ourselves. I would highly recommend this apartment and when we return to Coco Beach I will not hesitate to rent this apartment again.Thank you Kathy for everything to make our stay wonderful!

Owner's Response: It really is so much nicer to stay with your family in a home instead of a Hotel room. We're happy it all worked for them and encourage everyone to try the homeaway experience. You also can't beat this time of year for empty beaches and cooling breezes.
