About this listing
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.
Excellent place to stay, very close to the ocean and beaches. Super clean and comfortable. Many thanks for letting us stay, will be back!!
Wonderful place Andy has! My 13 year old daughter KJ and I stayed 2 nights. We visited Kennedy Space Center on the way there then 2 daysof R&R on the beach. Andy wasn't there when we arrived but his girlfriend Suzi was there to great us and provided an orientation on this unique home. Andy's art from his travels created unique ambiance (cool enough for my hipster teenager to enjoy:-)
Recommend staying here if you can. Very nice place, so close to the beach.
Great location for the Beach. The house is decorated wonderful and everything worked out fine. Would definitely come back to Andys house next time we get back to Cocoa Beach. 100% recommendable :-)
Communicating with Andy was very easy. I only stayed one night, but it was the best sleep I have had in a long time. Fascinating artifacts, comfortable furniture, atmosphere. Walk to the beach - truth in advertising. I didn't get to meet him, but I felt very well cared for none the less. High recommendations.
The place was great, clean and convenient for my trip to the space coast. Good value, close to the beach and Cocoa Beach.
This house is in a residential area with 1 minute walk to the beach. This is ideal because you have easy access to the beach, but not to the craziness. Andy is very nice and accommodating. There are interesting decorations around the house, including a relaxing backyard. I wish I had spent more time here.
We had a great stay at Andy's home. The accommodations were cozy and decorated with all sorts of unique artifacts and art. We were right around the corner from the beach and were able to use Andy's beach chairs and boogie boards. He was easy to communicate with and a great host, would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Cocoa Beach!
