River living at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful tree lined street in a peaceful setting with swaying palm trees is what I call a great vacation. This house has all the comforts of home. Boat rentals can be obtained at the end of the street and you dock the boat right behind the house. Our children loved it! Minutes from the beach and the world famous Ron Jon Surf Shop. I almost forgot....dolphins, manatees and osprey right outside the gorgeous wrap around porch. The views are breathtaking. We will stay here year after year. Stop looking and start living the good life.

Beautiful, Peaceful, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a beautiful home on the Banana River. The sunrises from the upstairs master bedroom are breathtaking, absolutely the most peaceful way to wake up each morning if you keep the shades open. Fishing from the dock is better than any river charter - Trout, Lady Fish, Red Fish are all biting right off the dock. During our stay, manatee and porpoise (dolphin) passed by daily, one Porpoise even swam under the dock while we were on it!

The home is very, very nice and clean, the kitchen is almost brand new. The skylights in the kitchen and master closet are fantastic. The leather couches are very high quality and clean. (I know high quality furniture) The carpet is great. No odors - not sure what the other reviewer was referring to - this home is clean.

We will be back next summer guaranteed.

I recommend this home to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in this are of Florida, peaceful and convenient.

Renter Alert, Musty

  • 1 of 5

I was charged for all cleaning fees. Read the contract . The musty smell of the master bedroom will permeate your clothing. Upon my arrival the rental was filled with an odor of air fresheners but the leather sofas smelled of dirty feet. I changed the Damp rid twice and paid for full cleaning, including carpet and upholstery.

Additionally, the 2 extra bedrooms on the garage/lower level have no closet. Renter beware.

Owner's Response: Wendy, We're sorry you had some concerns regarding your stay in September 2015. We spoke with you several times during your stay, and this review is the first time you mention a musty smell in the house. If this would have been conveyed to us or the property manager, during your stay, we would have taken care of it immediately. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. As for the cleaning you mention, the rental agreement you signed states on the first page that the tenant is responsible for a final cleaning upon departure. On the second page it states that no pets will be kept on the premises, including visiting pets. Below that statement it states if a pet is kept on the premises (with owner approval only), a pet deposit will be paid to have the carpets, rugs and upholstery cleaned. We did not approve a pet, however a pet was brought into the house. We asked that you pay the pet deposit, which you did, and the carpets, rugs and upholstery were cleaned as specified. We apologize if there was a misunderstanding regarding the rental agreement. The reason there are no closets in the extra bedrooms in the garage, is that the rooms were originally built for an office and an art studio. These rooms are connected by an adjoining door, and there is a large dresser for clothes in one of the bedrooms. We encourage our tenants to communicate with us or our property manager if they have any questions or concerns during their stay. It is our goal to provide our tenants with everything they need to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you.

Happiness Cove is such a perfect name for such a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Happiness Cove is such a perfect name for such a beautiful place. We had a wonderful time windsurfing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, skating, skateboarding, running and tri-biking (of all things). But nothing could be more wonderful than just sitting on the porch watching the water, the clouds, the dolphins, the birds, and even a manatee and an otter! A few weeks of this relaxation, peace and joy has gone a long way towards restoring our sanity. We also visited the Kennedy Space Center three times and saw two launches!! We hit the mother lode of manatees when we were kayaking and I got to pet some! We had family and friends join us for a few days, did a couple of cook-outs, a sunset paddle at the park at Sykes Creek, and hit a few yard sales.

The house is very well thought out, comfortable, bright, had pretty much everything we needed, and was a pure pleasure to live in. Thank you so much! We hope to be back again. B & B, NC – May 2014

Vacation house on the Banana River

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this vacation home Jan, Feb, & March 2013. The house has fantastic views of the Banana River. The whole back of the house which is the livingroom and master bedroom is all glass. The livingroom walks out onto a deck overlooking the river, which is great for eating breakfast in the morning. The sunrises are just beautiful. Everyday you will see dolphins and manatees, we even saw Osprays catching fish and taking them to their nest just down the street.

The house was very clean, the eat in kitchen has all new cabinets and floors and as you stand washing the dishes the views are great. The listing photos were helpful and the house is even nicer than the pictures show.The owner was very helpful with questions I had about the property.

You can fish right off the dock and can see the cruise ships docked at Port Canaveral. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but only 1 mile to the main highway with lots of restaurants and shopping .You are only 3 miles from the ocean and Cocoa Beach. Anyone staying here will definitly enjoy the location.
