a minutes walk to the ocean

House - Private room · South Orlando Avenue, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931, United States

The Space

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.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Andy's house is the perfect location for being close to the beach and not too far from Cocoa downtown. The room was clean and comfy as was the bathroom and also the garden is a nice feature! Andy gave me a great tip for having breakfast (Juices and Java is a good choice) and was very kind. Would stay there any time again.

  • I flew to Florida from DC, hoping to rewind a little in between jobs. Choosing to stay with Andy was a great decision. Relaxing at Andy's place comes very easily - not only because it is so close to the beach but also because guests are encouraged to feel at home and enjoy themselves. Being a social person, I appreciated the fact that Andy took the time to chat with me a bit about himself and his work and also ask me about my background. Being a beach lover, I was ecstatic about how easily I could access the beach, about how pristine and beautiful it was, and about how much of it I had to myself. It was exactly what I had hoped for. I also really liked that Andy's place has an outdoor shower, beach chairs, and boogie boards for guest use. I would definitely stay there again!

  • Andy was the best of Hosts. We went there for part of our honeymoon, and we couldn't have dreamed for a better place.

    The room is very clean, as is the bathroom. It is very well decorated, and andy even has set up a tv for his guest.

    He was great to speak with he shared great places to go with us. One tip: listen to his pieces of advice.

    We will come back without hesitation.

  • Great guy and really interesting to talk to - even spontaneously organized activities for us. The place is right next to the beach just as advertised and one might not only see turtles but whales also. Highly recommend a stay!

  • Andy was an awesome host!!! He was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. His home is very nice and decorated with lots of cool items from his trips around the world. Denver and I loved hearing his stories about his trips. The room was perfect and we could not have asked for a better stay! When we are back in the area we will definitely be staying with Andy!

  • Corresponding with Andy was easy and enjoyable. I love the eclectic world collection of things in the house. It was comfortable and inspiring. The location was ideal for walking to the beach and I loved that it wasn't the at the busiest part of the beach and I had some space when I went over. The price for this space was excellent.

  • A comfortable bed, above it a window through which you can hear the surf; a very clean, well equipped house in a quiet neighborhood; a funky little town with at least a couple of nice restaurants (Juice & Java for breakfast, Fat Kahuna for dinner). What more could you want?

  • Andy was a great host, interesting to talk with, and very accommodating. His house is comfortable and decorated with cool things he's collected from his travels. The location was wonderful just a block from the beach. My husband and I could walk to the beach with our surfboards and surf right there. We did see a few other surfers surfing there the week we were in Cocoa Beach, but we really felt we had the surf to ourselves. Overall we had a great experience! We would definitely stay with Andy again!

  • This is the ideal beach house and it is strikingly clean. I feel I've received great value for the price. I also enjoyed the host and landlord, Andy, who anticipated all my needs and also happens to be everyone's friend in this safe neighborhood. It was a treat for me to simply walk a block down to the beach and enjoy the ocean. This is the type of place and people who make Airbnb so famous; I highly recommend it.
