About the property

Luxury 4 Bed, 3 Bath Southampton Style Beach House w/ Heated Pool & Crow's Nest!

Give yourself a License to Chill in this beautifully renovated 3,000 sf Key West-styled beach house.  Outside the island colors and shutters fit in perfectly with the sounds of the surf and sand.  The house is crowned with a private Captain's Walk with panoramic roof-top observatory perfect for watching ships come and go from Port Canaveral just down the street or watching a rocket launch all while sipping a cool drink.  Nestled in a private cul-de-sac in a quiet beachside local community with plenty of wildlife including turtles, resident peacocks and every possible species of bird imaginable.  This 4 bedroom, 3 bath coastal retreat overlooks a natural preserve of indigenous plants and dunes only steps away from the front door.

Enjoy the open concept floor plan including a Southampton-styled great room with vaulted ceilings and Hemingway-styled ceiling fans, a beautiful gas burning fireplace and mantel when you have a chill or maybe just for some ambience, a world-class kitchen including both gas and electric cooking options with high-end stainless steel appliances, two master bedrooms both with en suite attached baths, two additional bedrooms each uniquely themed and a crow's nest loft for reading a book or relaxing that can be used as an additional bedroom.  Complete with heated pool to enjoy the sun without the sand. The house comfortably sleeps 10 guests.

About Steve

I am an old house aficionado. I spend the majority of time traveling for my job but wanted to renovate a house on the beach and make it available to both family and extended friends.

Steve purchased this house in 2015

Why Steve chose Harbor Heights

This property is as close to the beach as you get without actually having the foot traffic right outside your door. It is quiet and reclusive yet you can hear the wind and surf.

What makes this house unique

What made me fall in love with this place is its location. Quiet yet only footsteps from the ocean. Where else can you go on the roof and have a 360 panorama view of the entire Port Canaveral area. You can watch cruise ships come and go. You can even watch rocket launches into space without leaving the deck. And the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.

Would have stayed another week if we could

  • 5 of 5

The whole family loved our stay here, as did the family that joined us. Super convenient access to the beach. We took advantage of the cart, beach chairs, and umbrellas in the garage. When the kids were done with the beach, they'd shower off and hit the pool. We rented surf boards for the week, and put the kids in surfing lessons with Ron Jon's one morning. They had the best time. We fished from the surf one evening with rods we brought with us, having enough success to keep the kids entertained. We all did the nearby ropes course and took a night time bioluminescence kayaking tour (a good time but have low expectations for the amount of bioluminescence you'll see). Everyone, even young kids, enjoyed Kennedy Space Center (maybe not the bus tour though).

Getting back to the house, it's beautifully renovated. My wife went on and on about the finishes. She's already trying to get people on board to returning. The kids too said they want to go back to this house specifically. Sometimes you're ready to get back home at the end of a vacation but it was my wife that said "I would have stayed another week if we could."

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in immaculate condition and exceeded our expectations. Melissa and Steve are available at a moment's notice in case anything is needed and are wonderful hosts. They were kind enough to leave us milk, juice and fruit on arrival. The house worked out perfectly for our party of six. We spent a day at the Kennedy Space Center which I highly recommend. The other days were spent at the beach and exploring the wonderful, safe, areas surrounding the home. We highly recommend! - The Martinez Family

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Great house for entertaining. Great location. Very comfortable and well appointed. Will very likely stay again. Watched a night rocket launch from the roof deck. The only small negative was there was no blender.

Wonderful experience! We hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

The house was well built, in excellent condition, modern, and the open layout with widely separated bedrooms/baths was great for our family with small children. Beach access is a short walk - easy with toddlers. No need to pack up the car. The kids loved jumping in the pool after spending time at the beach. The kitchen was very well supplied with utensils, pots/pans, etc... we brought our own food and cooked all of our meals. We liked the keyless entry which allowed family members to go about their separate schedules and always have access to the house. We enjoyed the proximity to Port Canaveral. Make sure you catch each beautiful sunrise from the perch on the roof!

Lovely home, tastefully redone with great beach access and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Very much a home away from home. We loved the recent renovations and it's a very accessible property in a great central location.

Thanks for an amazing stay!! The house was even better than described!! We enjoyed every amenity including the pool, the crows nest, the beach and the large open living space! We appreciated the attention to detail and how well the house was equipped with everything we needed! Steve and Melissa communicated well and were prompt to refund our deposit. We will definitely stay here again the next time we’re on the space coast!!
