Guestbook comments from the owner

Today we've arrived at your house. What an amazing place it is! We also admire the way it is decorated. The pool is beautifull too! We were wondering if it is possible to use the spa and if yes, how to switch it on?

Great place !

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 1/2 months and loved the place ! Super quiet and lovely neighborhood. Great owners .The place is clean and comfortable .The backyard is relaxing with nice furniture . Really enjoyed the spa. Kitchen fully equipped for my chef husband.

Would have come back for winters to come, but both owners are retiring and the winters are no longer available.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your positive review and kind words, It was my pleasure hosting you. It all starts with hosting great tenants like yourself. After our initial discussion on the phone, I just knew from experience that you would be the type of tenant I would be proud to host. A person that respects the community and treats my home as if it was yours. I hope you consider staying with us again the next time your travels bring you back to Merritt Island. Safe journey as you head back north.

This home away from home was delightful: attractive, appealing, comfortable, and well provisioned.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I stepped in the door, I felt at home. I was lucky enough to stay two months, and would like to have stayed on. I had stayed in three prior lovely HomeAway rentals, but this was the best yet! This bright and cheerful tropical home felt like what it is presented to be, a beachside getaway without the mess of seaside living. Cocoa Beach, Jetty Park and Cape Canaveral are only a couple of miles away. The pool and hot tub were great, and the patio provides for outside dining and relaxation, with a coversational grouping also on the patio.

Easy to stay clean with dishwasher, washer, dryer and two full bathrooms, and tiled floors.. Better yet is the availability of a sweet, professional cleaning team, a stone's throw away!

The double car garage allows for stoage of things you need to park, but not want underfoot.

The bedrooms are cute, done in tropical motif, with great closet space.

I would rate this home a 10 plus out of ten. So very happy it was listed as a possibility!

Owner's Response: After reading your review, it took me a minute to determine that you are speaking about my home. In my opinion, there is nothing special about this place that we did not do at our primary residents. Perhaps because we never think of this place as a rental. It’s more about supplementing our expenses till my wife retires that makes the difference. Keeping my property in good condition starts with hosting great tenants like yourself. A person that respects the home and the neighbors. I got a comment stating that you were a delightful resident, and a pleasure to have in the hood. Thanks for everything you did and thank for taking the time to write a comprehensive review.

A wonderful, well appointed and delightful home and stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, homey River Walk home has been a delight, and a Godsend. Due to flooding in our home, we needed a move in ready rental for the period of reconstruction. This well supplied and very attractive home has been perfect. The pool is beautiful and each room of the house is well decorated and inviting. The washer and dryer, dishwasher and well supplied cabinets, made living here as much like home as possible. Looking forward to the month ahead. THank you for listing such a wonderful respite. Although not a vacation, I would love a vacation in a similar surroundings.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing our home during the period of the reconstruction of your own home. I hope the next thirty days of your stay will be as pleasant for you as the previous days, of course, minus the hurricane.

Love Merritt Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this property for four months and loved the area so much that we bought a home close by. The property that we rented is stunning. We loved spending the mornings poolside drinking our coffee, and the evenings poolside sipping a cocktail or two. The house itself is large with the most comfortable master suite that includes a full walk-in closet and walk-in shower. There are two additional bedrooms that are great for sleeping four more guests.

I recommend this property for anyone who wants a "perfect" home away from home.
