Jason was a great host, very accommodating and made himself very available to answer questions about things to do in the area. We were so impressed with the house itself, it was beautiful, very tasteful decorated and extremely clean. Great beach access, great view, without any hesitation I will say that's the best 1 bedroom air bnb in cocoa beach.
We arrived late so didn't perhaps get the usual personal introduction so found our way round pretty easily.
The place was clean and compact with an absolutely stunning view from the back garden.....
Decor nicely done and access to the banana river excellent.
This place is ideal for couples, really not so good for us ( as a non couple) as you had to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom..... Not sure how this would accommodate 3 people as it felt very cramped with just 2 of us.
Great location, beach also very close.
The only downside is the noise from the house above..... Not a problem unless you mind being woken up before 7am every morning.
The view from the garden is certainly the selling point.
My girlfriend and I Rented Jason & Dana's Apartment for two nights and it was enchanting. The apartment was even better than the pictures. It was beautiful decorated and clean. There was everything we needed like clean towels,pans, utensils, wine, coffee, ect. Jason & Dana went out of the way to accommodate us on our very late arrival time and made the process very easy. They also supplied us with print outs of all the local restaurants and the wifi password. Jason gave us access to the kayaks and paddle board, which we used to explore and fish in the bay were we saw some Dolphin swim close by on several occasions. Everything was very beautiful with plenty of things to see/do if your an outdoor type and a very tranquil and beautiful apartment if you just want to relax. overall I give this stop five stars!
Jason&Dana truly are tremendous hosts! Communication before our arrival really was excellent and the Apartment was a Little Dream from Southeast Asia, located at the Shores of Banana River which felt more like a private Bay. We spent some real quality time watching the sunset sitting on the private pier while the Dolphins were playing around us. This Place is definitely a must-Visit! Our best decision so far!
We had a great time, the backyard and dock was amazing. Jason & Dana were excellent hosts.
Jason was a fantastic host! He helped my son with learning how to use the paddleboard, and gave us suggestions on fishing from the dock. My family loved staying here and really enjoyed our quick weekend getaway in paradise. We are hoping to be able to return in the future.
Perfect weekend get away. The dock was a great feature where we saw manatees and dolphins and watched a beautiful sunset. The beach is just across the street and we were tempted to take the kayaks out but the river was just a little to choppy for us. We spent a terrific day exploring Kennedy Space Center and it was nice to come back to our private oasis. Pictures are accurate and the place was clean.
About the Host, Jason & Dana
I grew up in Cocoa Beach so being surrounded by water it was only natural to become an avid surfer and fisherman. Traveling to Surf has taken me all over the world. Some of my favorite trips include Central America, the Caribbean, Thailand and Indonesia.
