Just back from a 5 night break. Ideally located in a quiet area with the Banana river right at the end of the garden with a deck and 2 chairs to sit and watch the wonderful sunsets and watch the fish jumping from the water. We also saw Stingrays in the water. The uncrowded beach is a couple of minutes walk across the road which we visited every day with the Equipment supplied. Our Son loved the Body Board in the waves. We were given a list of recommended resturants which are all within a 10 minute drive. There are also a couple within walking distance. Jason and Dana are both available if anything is needed. Highly Recomended.
Jason was a great host. The flat was well presented, clean and had everything we need. The sunset and jetty were simply beautiful. I will be recommending it to my friends and would happily return.
This place is amazing...even better than we were expecting. The location could not be better and the hosts were incredibly kind and responsive.
Location: a few miles south of Cape Canaveral (we saw a rocket launch from a nearby restaurant on our first day!) and just south of the famous Ron Jon Surf Shop (where the beaches are busier). Jason and Dana's place is nestled between the beautiful Banana River (which is 3 miles wide) and the Atlantic Ocean. We alternated between to the two water fronts depending on the time of day (beach in the morning, river in the evening, sunrise/sunset). The ocean is a short walk away and the best part, for us, was that it was never crowded...the geography of the area really limits the number of hotels and other high density structures, which really limits the crowds. Even better, you literally just cross the street and you're there. The apartment is totally private, peaceful, and in a very safe neighborhood (many cars were parked with their windows open over night). We appreciated the full fridge and cook top, which allowed us to eat in several nights and enjoy the sunset view from the apartment.
Hosts: Jason and Dana are outstanding hosts! They really made us feel like house guests: loaning us beach equipment (chairs, towels, boogie boards) and offering us use of their kayaks (scheduling and weather just didn't cooperate for us to use them). Jason even brought by fresh oranges from a nearby grove, which we really appreciated. They also have a list of places to eat, conveniently categorized for types of meals...we especially like the Florida Fresh Grill.
Jason is a very hospitable host. When we needed something, he did all that he could to meet our request. He was generous when he gave us coconut water from a green coconut right off of his tree. We loved the view from the 2-room apartment. We looked right out onto the Banana River where we saw pelicans, wild dolphins, horseshoe crab, jumping mullet fish, numerous birds and fish. Two blocks (across a busy street) is the Atlantic Ocean and a wonderful uncrowded beach. I could go on but I highly recommend Jason and Dana's place for its tranquility and hospitality.
I am so in love with this place. Everything everyone has said is absolutely true. Beautiful views, cozy space, great beach across the street, and very accommodating and responsive hosts. My best AirBnB experience yet. Thank you Jason and 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.
