Our parents moved to Florida from Massachusetts in 1960 and designed our family home to be built on the beautiful riverfront property in south Titusville. My sisters and our families currently live in New Smyrna Beach (FL), Tampa (FL), and Tilton (NH), but Titusville will always be 'home' for us.
Kathy Arsenault purchased this house in 1964
For an older home it is great. You do share some common areas with the adjoining home park. It is located pretty much halfway between Titusville and Cocoa Beach so there is plenty to do. You can't get much closer to the Indian River unless you stand in it. The owner is very kind and caring.
Overall, this house is a hidden gem. It is warm and homey and inviting. It is as though you are visiting family. The décor is somewhat dated and is part of that charm. The view was spectacular – right across from Kennedy Space Center and the location convenient to resterants and shops. Equally important to us is that it was handicap friendly as well. A bonus was that the pool and screened room were adjacent to the intercoastal and we spent a lot of time there. The caretaker, Bob, lived one house up and he was a great source of information about local events and such. The owner answered all correspondence quickly, answered all of our questions, and was very easy to work with. We had a wonderful and restful time and are looking forward to our next visit.
If your child is going to NASA space camp - this is the place to stay! 4 minutes away from the ATX center - 10 from the NASA space center. Kids go to camp and the parents get to relax in a private pool/patio area. Manatees, dolphins, wading birds, - fish right off your own private dock. The caretaker Bob, is wonderful. I can't wait to come back.
Beautiful view. Especially nice if you have your own boat. Bob the manager very helpful. Kathy was excellent to deal with - quick responses and very accommodating. Home was a little dated but clean overall and had all the supplies, dishes, linens, etc. you will need. Pool was also very nice.
Thanks to Kathy for sharing this lovely spot with us! The home was clean and comfortable with lots of room for our family of 5 ( plus our dog!). It is a perfect spot for just relaxing at home in the pool, or taking in the gorgeous sunrises while canoeing or fishing on the lagoon. Plenty of places to visit that are nearby: we spent a day at Kennedy Space Center, a day at Playinda beach and a day at Universal Studios! The property manager Bob was on site and very helpful. We hope to return next year and we highly recommend this home!!!
The property is aged, however it is very neat and clean. The custodian was always available to assist with any questions and was working around the site to ensure projects were being done (i.e. painting fountain, working in yard etc...).
The views were the very best. We were even able to watch a rocket launch from the Cape which was an awesome experience. The home is very large with ample parking and a huge front yard for the kids to play soccer in. The pool was very inviting and well kept.
This is an older home, and with that comes aged plumbing ( the toilet in the middle bathroom broke and backed up into the tub ) and the dryer would not work. I do have to say that the custodian was there ASAP to fix all.
There is a pass through window in the kitchen over the sink to the outside bar area that would not lock; being a subject of a former break in, this scared me somewhat, but I said my prayers and let it pass. The TV in the 2nd room would not work - used my DVD player I brought with me to remedy that.
All in all it was a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay. I would visit again. The booking experience, pay, communication etc was excellent.
Shortest commute to Kennedy Space Center. Disney World and Orlando attractions 40 minutes away. Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral or Playalinda Beach a short 20 minute drive. Enjoy the view from the house looking out to the Indian River Lagoon. Watch dolphins, manatees, pelicans, and blue herons from the house, and space launches too! Walking or bicycling is safe and rural in area surrounding home. Titusville's beach, Playalinda, on the Canaveral National Seashore, is 24 miles of shoreline and is the longest stretch of undeveloped public beach on the east coast of Florida. The stretch of drivable beach is just over 4 miles.
