I have 2 different bedrooms for rent. The first bedroom has a bathroom across the hallway and is decorated with all my trinkets from around the world. It has a full bed and cable TV. This room is $80 a night.
The second bedroom has it's own private entrance and bathroom. It has cable TV and you can hear the ocean from the window above the queen bed. This room is for people who want their privacy. I'm usually staying in this room when I'm home so it can only be rented if I'm out of town or if you rent the whole house. This room is $80 a night.
I have boogie boards and beach chairs for guests to use and an outdoor shower.
I am 2 houses from the ocean. If you walk out my back door you'll be on the beach in about one minute. I'm a 20 minute beach or street walk from Downtown Cocoa Beach. The beach near my house is residential (no hotels or condos) and is pretty private. If you want a busier beach, then a short walk up the beach to the bar area is easy. There are many restaurants and bars in downtown, as well as shops to buy souvenirs. A shuttle stop is a minute away that can take you all over the city or to the mainland. Cocoa Beach is about an hour from Orlando and 50 minutes to the airport. I'm about an hour and 20 minutes from Disney and an hour from Universal Parks.
All guest have use of my kitchen and beach chairs.
Interaction with Guests
I'm often out of town for work, so sometimes the guests have the whole house to themselves. When I am home I like to meet and chat with my guests as much as they like. I provide local info for anyone who wants it. If a guest just wants peace and quiet, I respect that and only interact with them if they want.
There is a beach shuttle that stops close to my house that can take you anywhere in Cocoa Beach for about $1.00.
The house is no smoking but smoking OK on back porch. Washer and dryer can be used in moderation. Kitchen is available.
I have maps and guide books for out of town guests.
Andy was very nice! Met us at his place, walked us through the house and showed us everything we needed to know, also had it written out. The house is great for a vacation. Nice bathroom and bedroom, grill out back, very close to the beach and downtown! TVs in the living room, kitchen, bedroom! Andy is also very easy to get a hold of, in constant communication. Still smiling about the trip! Had a great time :)
Andy was a pleasure to work with, was at the house when we showed up, showed us absolutely everything we needed to know about the place and where we should go. Even told us about the local volleyball scene! Would recommend to everyone and anyone
Andy was very welcoming, and very organized in conveying all the features of his home and how to operate all the entertainment equipment, appliances etc. The house is very comfortable, and has a great vibe and a wonderful art collection, much of which he procured during his travels around the world. If you are looking for a soulful place to stay in Cocoa Beach, I heartily recommend Andy and his home.
We stayed at Andy's place for 3 nights while on a family roadtrip through Florida and really loved it. His place is 1 minute from the beautiful cocoa beach and not far from Kennedy Space Center. We stayed in a very nice guestroom and our 5 year old daughter had a seperate place to sleep. The house is very nice with beautiful pictures made by Andy and many items from his travels. It has a very nice kitchen where we made our breakfast every morning. Andy was a great host providing us with advice where to go, with some nice restaurants in the area. He even had toys for our daughter to take to the beach. Andy's home and hospitality is what makes airbnb travel great. A 'must stay at' in the area, highly recommended!
The home was nice and inviting. It was true to its description being only a block away from a great beach. The area was quiet, well kept and the beach clean, sunny and so much fun. Andy was a great host and gave us access to every amenity in his home. It was well worth the booking. We will book again should we come to Cocoa Beach in the future.
It was an absolute pleasure to have met Andy and his friend who welcomed us upon arrival and were extremely courteous and helpful. The apartment was lovely and precisely one minute walking distance to a gorgeous stretch of cocoa beach. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Thanks Andy
Awesome getaway place, just block away from the beach that was very private and we loved it! Andy is an excellent host whom allowed privacy and the family felt at home!
