                                              Great vacation

                                              5 of 5
                                              We stayed for the month February 2015 and then again 2016.I must say it was a very enjoyable and relaxing time with no worries. The house was clean, comfortable and well appointed. It had all that was needed for great stay. It is in a quiet neighborhood away from traffic, crowds and the lights of downtown. The pool is professionally maintain and inviting on those warmer days. The one acre lot is outstanding with palms and tropical plants.(very relaxing) Some nearby attractions we enjoyed were; Brevard Zoo, I MAX movies, Coco Beach, fishing at the numerous parks on the Banana and Indian River Lagoons, party boat fishing at Port Canaveral and dinning out at the waterfront eateries. All within 20 min.of the house. Orlando attractions are only about one hour away. Maz, the owner is personable, accommodating and will answer any questions that might come up. I would recommend this rental to anyone who likes a great vacation in Florida.

                                              5 of 5
                                              My husband and I wanted a different vacation, and decided to stay on Lady Xanadu. It was located at a picturesque marina, at the end of a dock, which over overlooked the mangroves. Todd met us and gave us a tour of the boat, and taught us how to "live" on a boat, moored at the dock. (HA.) We learned all the ship vocabulary, such as aft, stern, and bow, etc. It was roomy and efficient. The woodwork and furniture were classy and traditional. The sun shone every day, and the boat was bright and peaceful. People in the vicinity were friendly and welcoming. There was a lot of wildlife to watch, which I enjoyed. We saw cormorants, pelicans, gators, and hawks. It was peaceful and quiet at night, with a beautiful view of the stars, in a quiet setting. The bed was comfortable, and sleeping was easy, even though I had never slept on a boat before. Todd and Libby gave us a fruit basket, cheese and crackers, and that became our breakfast each morning. In addition there was also coffee available, so we bought just basic groceries, such as milk, dessert, and beer . It was a very unique vacation, and the location was accessible to Kennedy Space Center (Recommend the 2 hr. bus ride), Cocoa Beach, Historic Cocoa Village (great restaurants), and Ron Jons which is always fun. We ate every meal on the water, which is just the way we like it. Many of our friends were excited to see our pictures. Highly recommended.

                                              Beautiful and Comfortable Home in a nice community

                                              5 of 5
                                              The home was clean, spacious, and comfortable. It is close to grocery stores and Dunkin Donuts, but still in a quiet community. We went to the beach for the day and the kids enjoyed the bikes in the evening. Thank you for the wonderful experience. We are thinking of making it an annual tradition. The hosts were available if needed. I highly recommend this home.
