Great location! Good information about house and area.
We was 4 adult and a baby, the house is pretty big and the backyard is fantastic with the view and the pool.
55min to orlando by car and 5min to cocoa "center"
We had a very good time in Manfred & Regula’s house, The house is confortable, big enough for four people, very clean, well decorated and welcoming, well equipped, with laundry and dryer, with everything to cook and a wonderful view on Banana River !
But the best in the house is the garden : it is magic ! First there is a small pool just perfect to play and have fun ! We spent hours in it, particularly the children. There is also a barbecue, deck chairs and everything to feel well in the garden. We particularly liked the Tiki Bar, a little house with a table where we had breakfast and lunch looking for dolphins and manatees in the Banana River !
But there were also the Banana River itself, just in front of the house , where you can see dolphins playing just 50 meters from the garden or you can spend hours in the kayaks or the paddle boat just looking for dolphins or manatees !!! It is just magic !!!
We had so much fun in the house, pool and Banana River that we didn’t need to go to the beach which is just hundred meter far, uncrowded and beautiful !
So thank you very much Regula & Manfred for sharing this little paradise and hosting us !!! We would definitely come back again and would highly recommend to spend time in Manfred & Regula’s house.
Family of four enjoyed our stay. The house was very well maintained and it served each of our individual purposes. My 7 year old daughter absolutely enjoyed the pool for many hours each day. My teenage son didn't miss out on his online video games, laptop, and phone activity due to good wifi connections. My wife enjoyed reading a book either in the sunroom or in the backyard lawn chairs. Together we enjoyed fishing in Banana River just off the backyard of the house (I brought 2 of my own fishing rods), kayaked a little bit (although the current was very strong during our stay), went to the beach across the highway, played board games that were available in the unit (our favorite family game was Which Way USA), and relaxing! Enough cannot be said of how relaxing this house is! The view of the river, birds, fish, dolphins and overall "Florida essence" is superb at this house!!!
There weren't many downsides at all but so that the pros and cons are known, being that close to saltwater seemed to create a stench in the house from time to time. But my wife continued to wash linens and clothes to help with that. Also, a few roach water bugs were spotted. The house was located in a VERY private side of the beach. I prefer a little more activity (yet the rest of my family enjoyed the privacy) but a simple five minute drive to the World Famous Cocoa Beach Pier cured that for me.
The unit is the entire lower level. The upper level is split in two apartments. During our stay, only one upstairs apartment was occupied and we enjoyed speaking to him when we saw each other (which was rare). So it was like the entire backyard, pool, and river were solely ours! Even if the other units were occupied by more active people, it would not have hampered our experience any! There's plenty enough space and things available to accommodate three groups.
Manfred and Regula made it a point to ensure our stay was a good one! They truly love their house and seek to have their guests enjoy their stay! I doubt you will find any other owner or management company more accommodating than they are!
All in all, I rated this house and our entire Cocoa Beach vacation 10 out of 10! My wife gave it 8.5 out of 10! The house was spectacular! My wife and I enjoyed it so much that we will make this unit an annual summer retreat!!!
Notes for my next Cocoa Beach stay: Stay longer and incorporate a Disney attraction into the stay. Also rent a couple jet skis or boat to really have a great time.
Suggestion for vacationers: Pineapple Point is a very good nearby sports bar. Molly's Seafood Shack in Merritt Island is also great! Cocoa Beach Pier is phenomenal! Stay away from Florida's Seafood Bar & Grill on Hwy 520, food was terrible.
Thanks for the great review and description of our house. Some days there is an unpleasant smell from the river. Unfortunately, you can do nothing about, that is the nature. But fortunately there is always quickly over. All the best. Sunny greetings, Regula
Thanks that you have been our guests
We loved staying at this home. It has everything you need and the pool and backyard on the river were amazing! We loved walking to the beach and also being able to kayak right from our house. We will definitely be back!!!
Endroit agréable sur le bord de la rivière avec kayak accessible. Par contre doit traverser une rue à 4 voies pour accéder au bord de la mer.
We really enjoyed our stay at 'Fantastic location on the water' in Cocoa Beach FL, hosted by Manfred and Regula. The home was as represented, with a small well kept pool, right on the Banana River, with a spectacular view. :-). The public beach was 2 blocks away, with a beautiful, uncrowded feel. Home large, well appointed, spic and span. Lots of dishes, linens and towels provided. Two large televisions, internet provided. Kayaks, chairs, beach umbrella all supplied. All appliances in good working condition. Wonderful restaurant 'The Fat Snook' conveniently 1 block away. Bring your flip flops, your sunhat, and have a great time!!
