What makes this House unique
This home is conveniently located with quick access to the beach, restaurants and other local amenities. It is a wonderful location for a family vacation or holiday. We LOVE the beach, the parks, the Banana river, cruising, and the Orlando theme parks! While just steps from the beach, the house is also easily reached from the Orlando/Orlando airport area. We love the fact that once you land in Orlando, you can be ON THE BEACH in about an hour! The home is perfect for families. We love watching cruise ships sail in and out of the port, lying in the sun, the national seashore, visiting the theme parks, coming home to our own meals, and watching the manatees and dolphins! Disney and Universal are only 60 minutes away on the 4-lane Beachline Expressway (Florida State Route 528). We are located on the closest beach to Orlando and our home is the perfect place to split a theme park/beach vacation! Many of our past guests have also chosen to just stay on the coast and take the short drive to Orlando, cruise on a casino ship, or try their luck on a chartered fishing vessel. Others like to extend their cruise vacation by staying with us before or after their sail.

The perfect place to stay in Cocoa Beach
We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Dan and Lila's home! I was looking for a home to accommodate two adults and four children ranging from 18-21. This was the perfect home and the layout gave everyone enough room to move about without feeling cramped. Having two bathrooms was a plus. Booking was super easy and Dan emailed information about a bio-luminescence kayak trip that I was planning. He was super flexible about our check in time which we really appreciated after a 17 hour drive. The house was not only spotless but equipped with everything you could possibly want or need. It truly felt like we were staying at our family's home. Lila is a master gardener and gave us a tour of her beautiful gardens around the property. Both Dan and Lila are super friendly and have great suggestions about everything in the area. To make it even easier they have compiled a binder with all kinds of information and menus from local restaurants. The beach is so close (3 minute walk) and we were even able to see a Space X launch thanks to Dan for giving us the heads up. Even though the beach is such a short walk, there are a few parking spaces right at the entrance of the beach access if you wanted to drive. There were so few people on the beach, it was wonderful. There are so many things to do close by; night/day kayaking, restaurants, mini golf, Kennedy Space Center, Ron Jon Surf Shop and our teenagers went to Disney for the day. This is one place that we will be visiting again in the future and look forward to seeing Dan and Lila again. Their place is a gem and you won't be disappointed if you stay here! They have thought of everything to make your stay wonderful!
Thank you Amanda, Scott & Family. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We very much enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you again soon!
Great location, very clean, and excellent hosts!
This cute house fit our family of 5 perfectly. We loved eating outside on the patio, having two bathrooms, and a bed for each of our children! (Finally, no fighting over who has to sleep on the floor of the motel/hotel room.) It comes with more beach toys than you can almost use in a day at the beach and a great little wagon to get them there. Dan and Lila were extremely helpful in guiding us to local favorites from restaurants to activities, including where to get the best view of a SpaceX launch. We will definitely stay here again!
Thank you Corey,
We very much enjoyed hosting your family and we are glad you had a good time. You even got lucky and saw a SPACEX launch while you were here! We hope to host you on your next visit to the SpaceCoast.

Cozy Beach House with excellent Host
We fell in love with this cozy, clean, well equipped beach house soon after we moved in on Sunday. The owner Dan and Lila started to communicate with us about some details before check-in date and Dan walked us through everything when we arrived. We are surprised by how well stocked kitchen they have(even with a rice cooker!)and what a selection of beach stuff they have in this cozy and clean house(beach towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and beach toys) Great distance to walk to the beach and some good restaurants nearby. Miniature golf and zip line adventure across the street are perfect for family with kids. Dan and Lila tried their best to accommodate all of our requests during our stay. We couldn’t expect more but thank them very much for their warmest hospitality and will definitely consider to book their beach house again for vacation in the future!
Thank you Ning. We very much enjoyed hosting you and your family and we look forward to your next visit.

One of the best family vacations yet!!
If you have kids, or even if it’s an adult trip, you truly cannot go wrong with booking Dan and Lila’s lovely rental. Great house, awesome location, and amazing owners!
We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids ages 12, 5 and 2 1/2). We traveled from Chicagoland area so the selling point to this house for me was all the beach toys and equipment that is shown in the picture. The less we have to pack - the better! Well Dan and Lila fully exceeded expectations. The attention to detail and cleanliness is beyond impressive. Everyone slept comfortably. Not only was there the beach wagon, toys, chairs, and umbrella; there was beach towels, laundry soap for the washer and dryer, personal hygiene soaps, hair dryer, an outdoor shower to wash off all the sand, every kitchen need you could possible think of, and even a little stroller to push our youngest in! Our normal stroller is a big Sit n’ Stand that would been a pain on the beach. There are even brochures of various things to do, and take out menus of all the restaurants in the area (super key on the first night when all we wanted to do was head to the beach). There is a Publix grocery store down the road that we took advantage of so we didn’t have to eat out. We only ordered/ate out twice. This was literally our home away from home. All of these amenities made traveling with 3 kids so easy! We were fortunate to spend time at the beach everyday, but also venture around to see other things in the area.
Also, Dan and Lila are some of the nicest people I have met when it comes to renting. They made it a point to be there at check in to personally show and tell us everything we needed to know, and even added some special touches. I learned that this house is Lila’s childhood home so that made it a little more special than it already is. Their communication with us was impeccable too. I’ve had issues in the past with other property owners so I appreciated the personal service.
Dan and Lila, thank you from the bottom of all 5 of our hearts! We were so bummed to leave as we each had the best time. Thanks to all your efforts to make this place a “home away from home” we were able to make some beautiful memories with no added stress! We sincerely hope to back again in the future!!
Thank you Angela. We very much enjoyed hosting you and your family! We are very glad that you had a wonderful time and we would absolutely love to host you again in the future!
Caring hosts + perfect location!
Dan and Lila met us at the property and walked us through the house and beautifully landscaped yard (Lila is a master gardener). The house had everything we could possibly want and just the right feel for a beach vacation! Super fast wifi, a well-stocked kitchen (loads of spices, cooking oil, etc in the pantry plus plenty of cooking pots), large fenced in patio with table/umbrella and a short walk to the gorgeous beach. The location is just perfect-close to the beach and Publix grocery store and loads of restaurants (there's a pub on the corner!) Our family especially enjoyed playing goofy golf (am I dating myself?) and our meal at Coasters Taphouse. Would recommend this listing and Cocoa Beach without reservation!
Thank you Edie,
We enjoyed having you and your family as our guests and hope to host you again in the future.

Quiet neighborhood, close to the beach, great house.
This was our first experience with renting a house. What an experience from the beginning to the end we were welcomed, Dan and Lila answered all our questions and worked with us and our unsure arrival time. The house was just what we needed during our week stay while our daughter played softball in FL. We were only a little distance from her motel which made it nice and close to the grocery stores for our late night runs. If we ever need to do this again, I definately will stay here. Cute house that felt like home away from home with everything you could need or want. The backyard was amazing and quiet for sitting out for breakfast or an evening relaxing.
Thank you Sara and Family. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again in the future.
