Relax in this welcoming Beach House, just one minute walk to a beautiful flat sand beach. The Shell Beach House is a spectacular home - whether your group has ten people or two, it feels just right.
Location is great, as you cross only one street to reach the beach, and it’s a real sleepy beach side street only wide enough to take one car at a time.
The Shell Beach House has an oceanview sun terrace accessed by spiral staircase. It’s an outstanding spot for viewing the ocean, the stars, the sunrise, the rising full moon over the waves and rocket launches from nearby Cape Canaveral.
Included in the rental is all electricity, A/C, heating, linens, bath and beach towels, four off-street car parking spaces, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, three surf boards, three bikes and body boards for people of all sizes. For families with babies, this House also provides a high chair and a pack and play.
This a new listing in 2014 under new management by Liz and Jon Sayers, who have set high standards with their successful Cocoa Beach vacation rentals. Between them, their three Beach Houses have over 150 Five-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listings in the last 29 months. They now have 5 Beach Houses under management in the same neighborhood on Cocoa Beach.
At ocean level, the Shell Beach House is light and airy, with comfortable sofas in the spacious open-concept living area comprising lounge, dining area and large kitchen with social bar, all beneath tall ceilings which have a cooling effect in the Florida heat. The lounge has large screen smart HDTV. There’s also a downstairs den, a bathroom with large shower, utility room and plenty of storage. This house also offers gas BBQ grill and a small herb garden.
The second floor has two master bedroom suites, two further bedrooms, another bathroom with large walk-in shower and a den with its own kitchenette and bar. Every bedroom in this house has its own HDTV.
The Shell Beach House is super-close to key locations including beaches, restaurants, bars, stores and the famous Cocoa Beach Pier. When you’re on the beach, look left for a front-row view of launch pads at Cape Canaveral’s Spaceport, look right for nearby Cocoa Beach Pier and gorgeous flat beaches stretching miles into the distance.
The Shell Beach House is notable for its beachside location, its ocean air and ocean views, its tall ceilings, its cleanliness, its uniqueness and the size which creates many private spaces. This is not a condo – it’s a beautifully spacious private home with no crowds, no elevators. This is all about you living right at the beach in your own private space.
Check in is after 4pm, check out before 10am.
Cocoa Beach is on a barrier island and is notable for its superb long flat beaches, friendly family atmosphere and big quiet skies, thanks to its low-rise buildings and the no-fly zone protecting Cape Canaveral. Sunrises, sunsets and moonrises over the water are often fabulous. The neighborhood around the Shell Beach House is so relaxed because it has the key benefit of being east of the four-lane A1A. There are no highways at all between the Shell Beach House and miles of sands.

“The house is amazing beds are very comfortable nice everything work and they thought off everything so you don't have to bring a bunch off stuff from your home Most of all the owners are extremely organized and well prepared and professional so you don't have to worry about having problems when you stay at there properties It was over all great.”
WH, Arkansas, party of ten, May 29, 2015:
“This is the third property we at which we have stayed in the Coco / Cape Canaveral area, and this is the best at which I have stayed. While we were very pleased with the other properties as well, this property was the best because of its great layout and location. There are lots of bedrooms, and even two complete kitchens. The floor design is very open downstairs with an open kitchen / dining / living room. There is first floor bedroom and full bath. The other bedrooms (including a master bedroom with a deck) are on the second floor. There is even a third floor deck from which you can see the ocean and feel the evening sea breeze. Grocery store is within walking distance. There were even surfboards there for our use!!! Great place!!!”
BP, Arkansas, party of eleven, May 27, 2015:
“We were very happy with this house. Perfect location--very close to the beach, walking distance to the grocery store, shopping, restaurants, and the pier. Very clean! Well stocked! Plenty of room and very comfortable! Loved the balcony overlooking the beach! Will definitely recommend to friends and the 2015-2016 Lunabot Team for next year.”
SP, New Jersey, party of four, May 14, 2015:
“We were extremely impressed with this home. It is close to the beach. The house has plenty of room for everyone to have space on their own. It is stocked everything that you can possibly think of from everything in the kitchen to everything that you could possibly ask for for the beach. The house is extremely clean and neat and the beds are extremely comfortable. We will definitely come back again. Jon and Liz were extremely accommodating and very attentive to our needs.”
LJ, Indiana, party of nine, May 7, 2015:

DP, New Brunswick, party of eight, March 27, 2015:
“We were a group of 4 couples all over 55 and could not have been any more satisfied with this house and location. This was our 2nd year in Cocoa Beach and with Jon and Liz and we once again were provided all you could ever want in a getaway from a cold Canadian winter. The house was so spacious that in a 12 day stay we never once felt cramped for space. The pier , entertainment , shopping , groceries were all in easy walking distance and the house had all the amenities and then some. Our group was unanimous in doing all that we can to make year 3 in Cocoa Beach and with Jon and Liz a reality . Thanks so much for making our holiday one we will always remember.”
AB, Minnesota, party of twelve, March 26, 2015:
“We had a family reunion with 10 adults and two children at the house and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The first first floor bedroom was perfect for the older couple and the upstairs back apt. was just what was needed for the couple with two small children (1 and 3 years old). We were provided a high chair and pack and play for the 1 year old. This apartment (within a house) had a refrigerator/small kitchen for baby bottles, snacks etc., as well as a washer and dryer in the bathroom which also had a spacious shower for showering with the little ones. The front master bedroom was spacious and had its own private deck. All bedrooms were comfortable and had separate flat screen TVs. The first floor open kitchen, dining and living area were just right for family gatherings and hanging out. We all enjoyed morning coffee or afternoon drinks on the lovely sun deck with ocean view -- arrived two by a spiral stairway from the second floor. There were so many extras (surf & boogie boards, beach toys, coolers, beach chairs) -- everything and more than you would expect for a wonderful beach house experience!! The pier, restaurants and the beach are all walking distance. Last, but most certainly not least, Liz and Jon were helpful, friendly and responsive throughout our stay. The emails are still flying within our family about what a wonderful time we had and how this vacation house served all our needs. We are already talking about signing up for our next reunion.”
TS, Georgia, party of five, March 17, 2015:
“The house was more than we expected. Jon and Liz communicated right up until our arrival and were great in making sure we had everything. The house was very spacious and had everything but food and our personal clothes. We will definetly stay at this or other houses managed but them in the future”
PZ, Florida, party of eight, February 25, 2015:
“My family spent a week at this wonderful beach house in Cocoa Beach to celebrate my 70th birthday. The house was perfect for our family of 7 adults and 1 toddler with plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The layout of the house couldn’t have been better. The eldest member of our party loved the bedroom on the first floor and the small apartment on the second floor was a great bonus space. The house was very clean and everything from kitchen staples, cleaning supplies, beach gear and toys were provided. All we had to do was bring our food. The beach house is in a quite location and steps away from a beautiful beach. Surf shops, miniature golf, restaurants and the Cocoa Beach pier were just blocks away. We were in close proximity to everything we needed, even an organic grocery store. My only disappointment was that we missed a rocket launch by only a few days - the view from our location would have been spectacular. Jon and Liz were absolutely wonderful hosts and could not have been more kind and helpful. This house will not disappoint and I would, without hesitation, recommend this rental to anyone. Thank you Jon and Liz for making this a very memorable vacation for our family!”
CL, Wisconsin, party of eight, February 16, 2015:
"Fantastic vacation home rental! This house was just wonderful. John and Liz had everything at the house that we could possibly need and many things we didn't know we would need! They printed out the low and high tide chart for the time we were there and emergency phone numbers, plus a complete booklet of everything about the house and the area. The house was very clean and well stocked. We had 8 people from ages 12-62 and the house worked perfect for us. We were able to grill out, cook and do laundry with ease. They provided plenty of bath towels and more than enough beach towels. The location of the house is perfect. So close to the beach and with in walking distance of stores, including Ron Jon's Surf Shop, restaurants and the Cocoa Beach Pier. They had a variety of board games, puzzles, etcetera to keep everyone entertained at night. I could go on and on but previous reviews cover much more. I would rent this house without any hesitation again!."
AP, Michigan, party of seven, January 26, 2015:
“Thanks for the amazing stay and attention to detail.”
LS, Colorado, party of nine, January 13, 2015:
“Thank you! I will be back with the kids again, hopefully early summer.”
RH, California, party of six, January 2, 2015:
“Great time! Wish the weather were better, but Happy New Year! Hope to do business with you again soon.”
LE, Maryland, party of ten, January 1, 2015:
“Thanks so much for such a lovely, fantastically well equipped and maintained, very CLEAN, house for our Christmas holiday! We all had a wonderful time and the weather was blissful. I will add a review in the coming week , which I don't normally do, because this house was really perfect. Just FYI a crock pot would be a great option and a coffee pot with a timer that shuts off automatically would also be a better option for the many cooks that such a large house can accommodate. Those Surfing Santas were quite a treat!! We all loved Cocoa Beach!”
PB, Connecticut, party of ten, November 20, 2014:
“This house was much more than we expected. We arrived very late at night and found drinks in the fridge, a Keurig with coffee, and snacks in the closet. The house also became equipped with surf boards, boogie boards, beach chairs, and umbrellas. We used it all. What a beautiful beach Cocoa Beach is. We were able to bike on beach during low tide. That was a lot of fun. We had 5 couples for a total of 10 people. There was more than enough room. And everyone had their own space. Liz and Jon provided immediate response on questions and information we needed. They were wonderful. The house is on a quiet street, but within a block or two, there are restaurants, a Publix, and a multitude of other stores. Also, there are wonderful restaurants within 10 minutes North in the Port Canaveral area. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this property. We would book this house again in a heartbeat. Thank you Jon and Liz. You definitely know how to make renters happy.”
VC, Ohio, party of eight, November 12, 2014:
“Beautiful house…really does feel like home! I cannot say enough about this home. The location is easy to find right off the main road. You are a short walk from the beach. There is plenty to do around the area and everything is conveniently located. The home itself is BEAUTIFUL! Plenty of space for everyone without feeling cramped. The place is organized and well stocked with things you didn't realize you may need. They even provide items to use while on the beach- to build sandcastles, bike, or boogie board/surf. They provide plenty of towels which is nice since most places only provide one or two. The beds are super comfortable. There are TVs in every bedroom which is nice when you have a large group and all different ages of individuals. This place just really makes you feel as if you are at home next to the ocean! Cannot wait to hopefully stay again in the future!”
EM, Kansas, party of eleven, November 3, 2014:
“We had a great time. Thank you!”
JC, California, party of twelve, October 28, 2014:
“We just got back from a wonderful family vacation -- the house was quite comfortable for 12 people and came extremely well furnished to accommodate all types of beach activity. There were sand toys for our granddaughter, boogie boards for our grandnieces, bikes, beach chairs; everything you need for a comfortable day at the beach. Just watch out for the jelly fish in the water -- several of our party were stung multiple times.”
CB, Switzerland, party of six, October 12, 2014:
“The Shell Beach House is very big and it has everything you need. It was very clean. A short walk to the beach. Jon and Liz were very helpful during our stay and also before we arrived. We enjoyed very much our stay in the house and in Cocoa Beach. We recommend it for anyone. We thank you very much for all.”
CO, Illinois, party of nine, October 7, 2014:
“Wonderful house! Wonderful time! Thank you!”
JW, Colorado, party of eight, September 20, 2014:
“Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful Beach House. We appreciate all the work you do to make this a fabulous place to stay. Our family had a wonderful time. We loved the beach and all got nice tans.”
JC, Utah, party of eight, September 12, 2014:
”This home is more than what we expected. Everything was ready for us and it was in immaculate condition. There was plenty of room for our two families with a teenager and two younger children, and the bedroom downstairs was perfect for our 91-year-old great-grandmother! The home is a few short steps to the beach. We had a real enjoyable time and would recommend it for anyone. We would definitely return to this wonderful home.”
LJ, Indiana, party of nine, September 5, 2014:
“We had a party of nine and never felt crowded. My 91 year old mother loved the bedroom on the first floor. The house was clean upon arrival and accessibility to the beach was excellent. Proximity to activities and restaurants was also important to us and we weren't disappointed. We'll definitely be going back.”
LC, Brazil, party of nine, August 27, 2014:
“Amazed. Stupefied. And very happy. That's how me and my family felt when we got to this beautiful house in Cocoa Beach to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. It is everything that shows in the pictures: big, spacious, good light all day, fully equipped, just a little walk from the beach sand... But there's more that the pictures don't show: The house was neatly cleaned, organized, stored with cleaning products and complete instructions about how everything worked. All the bathrooms had clean towels folded and liquid soap on the sink (yes, like in a hotel!...) and the beds were already made with clean linens and conforters. Very good feeling to start a vacation like this, in a rented house, not in a hotel! And more: Jon, our host, was attentious and always promptly reachable through a phone call or text message. We have a 10 month old baby, and the baby chair and crib were ready to use when we got there. I felt cared and respected on my rental requests. The beach near the house is beautiful, and there are a lot of beach gear to use in the house. Don't worry, you will have a great time staying here. I will definitely return! Great memories! Thank you Jon and Liz!”
RO, Florida, party of eight, August 26, 2014:
“My wife and I want to thank you for the wonderful time we had in your house. All the kids loved having their own rooms, and the little conveniences where extremely helpful and highly appreciated (towels, toiletries, even condiments...). The surf boards in the garage definitely earned their keep over the three days :). We'll keep you in mind for any future Cocoa trips. Thank a ton and God bless!”
SB, Kansas, party of five, August 20, 2014:
“This was a wonderful house to stay in while in Cocoa Beach, FL. We had easy access to Orlando for all the fun Orlando activities. The 3 minute walk to the beautiful Cocoa Beach was so nice. The house was equipped so nicely for any age of children. Anything that we needed for the beach fun - the house had it. The kitchen was nice and open - and the multiple bedroom kept everyone happy. Thank you for helping make our FL vacation wonderful!!”
RC, party of five, August 7, 2014:
“Spectacular! The Shell House has everything--great location, great house, lots of room and a beautiful beach within walking distance. We had five in our party and everyone had privacy. The house was immaculate and well maintained. We were also very impressed with the information the owners provided us. We would, without question, recommend this rental to anyone.
EM, Texas, party of twelve, July 31, 2014:
“Just got home from a fabulous time in Cocoa Beach!! We stayed 4 nights and it was PERFECT for our family vacation. Their was plenty of room for everyone and had everything we needed and more!! Everything was set up really nice and had everything from beach towels to beach toys for the kids. All you need to take is food. I can't wait to come back to this house! Thank you so much Jon and Liz for the WONDERFUL experience. Oh and can't for get to mention that we all got to witness our first rocket launch!!
CD, Quebec, party of nine, July 20, 2014:
“Thank you very much for renting us this villa. It was perfect for us. The kids loved it! We had a great week because of you!”
BD, Missouri, party of nine, July 14, 2014:
“My family and friends stayed at the Shell Beach house for 4 nights. There were 4 adults and 5 kids all under 5 years old. We absolutely loved the house. It had tons of room and was setup for anything we could possibly need. Jon and Liz were wonderful before, during and after our stay. The house was clean, cozy and setup perfectly for a wonderful vacation. It is close to the beach and pier. The stretch of beach close to the house is not busy at all and we really enjoyed that. There are several restaurants within walking distance as well as a supermarket. Jon and Liz did so many things to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. We will NEVER stay in a hotel again and look forward to visiting their other properties some day (including returning to the Shell Beach house). I highly recommend this house!”
LJ, Indiana, party of seven, July 8, 2014:
“We had a great time!”
MM, Missouri, party of eleven, July 7, 2014:
“We only rent homes when we vacation, and this was definitely one of the most lovely homes we have vacationed in! This is a very large, beautiful, and welcoming home! It has everything you need for relaxation and fun including, coolers, beach towels, plenty of parking spaces, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, surf boards, bikes, and body boards, grill and so forth! It accommodated both our sets of grandparents very happily! It is only a minute or less walk to Cocoa Beach and a Pier is very close, too. The beach is utterly gorgeous!!! We saw fireworks from the 3rd floor deck area during our stay! Liz and Jon were very easy to work with and nice during the reservation process and throughout the week of our stay. This is a WONDERFUL home!”
CF, Indiana, party of twelve, June 26, 2014:
“My family stayed in the Shell House for a total of 7 days. When we arrived, the house was immaculate. We were provided everything we needed for a comfortable week. The beach is a very short distance and shopping is a quick walk. We were able to eat all our meals in the house because dishes, pots and pans, and utensils were plentiful. I would ABSOLUTELY book another vacation here! We were so sad when the week came to an end.”
MG, Florida, party of four, June 12, 2014:
“We had a great time and would like to come back again.”
LR, Kansas, party of eight, June 11, 2014:
“We found the Beach House on line and liked it right away. We needed something that would accommodate all of us and be comfortable at the same time as well as affordable. This house fit our needs just perfect. Not only was the house great AND close to the beach, as they stated, but it had every thing we needed. I can't say enough of how open and sweet Jon and Liz were to us, as well as honest. I being a skeptic and very nervous about doing deals over the phone and on line, I can assure you these are the right people to make your vacation plans with. I recommend you contact them and talk to them. As sweet as they are on the phone is as honest as they are in their business transactions. My family and I would definitely return there!!!!!! I give it and Jon and Liz 5 Stars. Thanks again Jon and Liz for everything.”
TH, New Mexico, party of eleven, May 30, 2014:
“Thank you, we had a wonderful time, the house is greatly located and was perfect for our family.”
SM, Wales, party of seven, May 21, 2014:
“What a fabulous house, I stayed at the Shell Beach House with 6 other family member ranging from 21 to 74 and everyone had the same thing to say when we walked in ‘WOW’. Not only was the house beautiful but the rooms were more than spacious for everyone and the owners really made sure that the communication prior to and on arrival was 1st class. The facilities they had on offer too catered for every need and so informative. I can highly recommend this property, it was clean beautifully maintained and in a fabulous location, right next to the beach, with Port Canaveral just down the road. Would highly recommend Cocoa beach and this property, the only regret we had is that we did not book to stay longer. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back!”
MD, Wisconsin, party of six, May 21, 2014:

“We had a great stay at this house. It was so close to the beach, very convenient to let my kids walk down there alone and then follow. The house was very clean, in a quiet neighborhood and easy to find. The bathrooms were nice, beds comfy and plenty of room for our family of nine. We would easily go there again if we were in the area. The owners were friendly and very accommodating.”
JW, Maryland, party of eleven, April 21, 2014:
“My oldest daughter (28) and mother of 3 little ones was the first to arrive at the Shell Beach House and she called immediately to tell us, 'Best Beach House Ever'! The beach house was nice and open in the living areas, but provided privacy for all of us in very clean and comfortable bedrooms! It was very well stocked with high quality linens, towels, beach supplies and incidentals. We had a wonderful vacation due to it's location and amenities. We definitely hope to book it again. It is perfect for our growing family :-)”
