About this listing
Thanks for checking out my beach home. You can rent my whole house or just one bedroom. I live only 2 houses from the ocean. Just a short 2 minute walk until your feet are wet in the ocean. I'm about an hour from Orlando, Disney and Universal.
I have a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom house available for rent. If you don't need the whole house then you can just rent a single room. The single room is decorated with all my trinkets from around the world. It has a full bed and cable TV and it's own bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed, cable TV and it's own bathroom.
If you rent just a single room then I may or may not be staying in the second bedroom. I try to gauge my staying in the second bedroom on whether my guests would like privacy or company during their stay. If you want privacy then I will go and stay at my girlfriends house, which is only a few miles away. If you like company then I'm more than happy to stay and give helpful travel advice, chat or share a meal. In both cases my guests are free to use the living room, kitchen and all common areas. The single room will fit 2 adults and maybe a small child. If you have more than 2 adults then you would need to rent the whole house, which gives you both bedrooms, both bathrooms and total privacy. I also have a futon and a couch to sleep more guests if the whole house is rented. If you want to rent the whole house then let me know when you contact me and we will work it out. The price for the whole house is double the price quoted for the single room.
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 15 minute walk by beach or street 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 10 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.
The neighborhood is safe with good neighbors that look out for each other. Many of my neighbors are avid surfers that surf the local beach. I can arrange surfing lessons and fishing charters for guests.
There is a beach shuttle that stops close to my house that can take you anywhere in Cocoa Beach for about $1.00.
Other Things to Note
I have a very private back yard surrounded by foliage and flowers. I love to garden. There are lounge chairs on the back porch and a table and chairs to have a meal if you want to eat outside.
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.
