Guestbook comments from the manager

It has been a joy yet again to stay in our "second home". It made the refit of our sailboat possible providing a haven of peace to return to after a hard day in the boatyard. Also saw the MAVEN launch to Mars! Many thanks.

Great Enough

  • 5 of 5

Great HomeAway, larger inside then it looks from the outside, very clean, well maintained, so comfortable, nicely decorated, and great big private back yard (as pictured). The owner is kind and friendly; makes me feel as if I know her personally.

Great place to be laid back, casual, cook at home, or you can take your meals out at various restaurants in the area. Convenience stores, Red Box, and groceries are a short walk around the corner. BBQ place across the way is good eats. Grocery Stores within few blocks drive. Boating, fishing, and beaches are within minutes, a short drive, from this house.

Great get-away, location is close to the beautiful PlaylInda Beach, Canaveral National Seashore and Preserve, NASA Shuttle site, and Indian River.

Titusville has feel of small, southern, and urban town mix; has interesting history; and is a great get-away... if you looking for the high-life, night life, upscale city, tourist haven, this is not it. However, the cities of Orlando, Daytona, Cocoa Beach are a nearby drive.

This house was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is first time I have rented a house. So called the owner a lot. She was so patient and kind. The house was clean and very comfortable. The beach near the house is great. You can go to the Kennedy space center, go on air boat rides and drive though the nature reserve. This house has everything you need for a great stay. I would definitely rent this house again.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation week we had on the Space Coast of Florida. This home is just as beautiful as the advertised pictures portrayed on the website. We went to Playalinda Beach, the Kennedy Space Center, Fox Lake Park and walked out on the Max Brewer bridge pier after enjoying delicious food at Crackerjacks. An added bonus for us - - it is located across the street from our favorite 'rock shrimp' restaurant, Dixie Crossroads. The house is clean, well-maintained and provides all the comforts of home---everything you need, Geraldine & Richard provided. So much better than staying in a hotel. Geraldine was quick to respond from scheduling through arrival and departure. She treated us like family. We definitely will stay at this location again AND highly recommend it to others.

Sometimes a Property is Just a Great Fit!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a five month stay in this lovely Titusville home. If you are not familiar with Titusville, it's more for travelers who are looking for a natural non-tourist experience. The local beach is a dream with no hotels or homes!!! Wonderful sandy beaches go on for miles with great for surfing, fishing and shelling. The downtown core is often throwing a Friday night block party with the main highway going through town closed for the event.

The house was great for us. I especially appreciated the well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the screened in porch every afternoon for cards. The backyard was fantastic for our German Shepherd!!! The house is very comfortable and I highly recommend it to other vacationers.
