The space

Ocean front home ONLY 60 FEET TO BEACH, (any closer you're wet), 15 minutes from Port Canaveral, 5 minutes from Ron Jon's Surf Shop and 45 minutes to the Orlando airport. Once you arrive plan an adventure or don't leave at all. With a master bedroom(king) & bath, 2 guest bedrooms (1 queen, 1 twin) & bath and 1 convertible Murphy bed. There is room for a family or a small group of friends. The kitchen provides plenty of space to prepare delicious meals while interacting with family and the ocean view. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking necessities and stainless steel appliances. For extended stays the washer and dryer will be accessible to our guests.
When you arrive expect a clean and inviting space. We are excited to learn what interests you in the area and provide information or inside scoop possible. We certainly suggest walking north up the beach to Coconut's for some live music and seafood. There are many other quality restaurants in the area depending on your tastes. We are happy to make suggestions.
Our family has owned and vacationed in this home for 60 years and seen 4 generations. The wood paneled walls and ceilings are original from 1949. It is often said in fun, "if these walls could talk, no , really!". We all consider it home away from home and are thrilled to share just that feeling with our guests. Some guests include the very first Astronauts as depicted in the movie "The Right Stuff".

Had a great time on the beach. All restaurants and groceries were close enough yet quite. We had the luxury of seeing a launch from KSC.

We absolutely loved the location, the house, and the easy communication with Willis. It is the kind of place you imagine yourself coming back to time and time again and sharing with family and friends.

Fabulous location, wonderful house. Great view of the ocean inside and out, few steps down to the perfect beach. Easy to cook in, nice privacy with three bedrooms and a fourth nice double bed tucked in a corner with a privacy curtain. Good kitchen for cooking, short jaunt to the much more busy town. Enjoyed the games and books. Lots of towels which was great the water was perfect even in February! As an added bonus, watched a SpaceX rocket launch. Just a great trip!

As a semi-retired business owner I have the opportunity to enjoy our family home in Cocoa Beach while balancing time in Winchester, VA with the family and company. Boating, leaisure and entertainment inspire this phase of my life. What brings me the most joy is sharing such experiences with family and old & new friends.
Our home in Cocoa Beach has been in the family for over 50 years. We hope that you can feel the rich history in the house and enjoy creating some of your own.
