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?

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.

I Anticipate staying there again

  • 5 of 5

My stay Jan 1 – 13, 2013

This is a dazzling home in a tranquil neighborhood. It was ideal for our group of 5! The proprietor has clearly taken awesome consideration of this property, it was spotless and all around kept up. It has every one of the courtesies you could need, link, WiFi, full kitchen, pool, and so on. It is found 45 minutes from Orlando and inside of 10 minutes of whatever else you could need. There is a market, Target, and medication store inside of a mile of the home. The proprietor was anything but difficult to contact and brief with reactions. I have as of now very prescribed this property to family and companions!

My perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our return stay at this property. The owner is very accommodating to any of our needs; and is very easy to work with. The photos of this home truly don't do it justice, It’s a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood perfect for an adult crowd or retired snow-birds. We are non-smokers and appreciated the home was smoke free and smelled fresh and clean. We enjoyed many days at the beech knowing that when we return we had the benefit of sitting around our private pool and hot-tub with our favorite beverage. This house is conveniently located five minutes from the beech and almost across from Port Canaveral so as usual we took this opportunity to take a short cruse.

Theirs is plenty of shopping nearby and lots of restaurants and entertainment in and around Port Canaveral. We would highly recommend this home to any long or short term rental!

Perfect for a Holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this Merritt Island home. It had all the amenities needed, including many more. Although we didn't use the pool and hot tub because it was a little cool, we went to the beach and enjoyed boating and fishing. Close to everything, including a day trip to Orlando. The home was immaculate and the neighborhood well kept and quiet. We would love to return during the next holiday time.
