About this listing
Indian River view. Downstairs apartment like area. Living room, porch -800 sq ft+. I king bed in bedroom, futon and couch in living room- Small kitchenette (NOT a full kitchen) area with microwave, small dorm size refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker. Watch dolphins!
We are located on the Indian River. There is a large yard and a dock which are available for you to use. You can walk along Indian River Drive, kayak, or take out a stand up paddle board. The space is a bedroom, bathroom, living room, limited kitchen type area (see appliance list- you can cook if you are creative) and screen porch which is private - you do not share these areas with the owners. 800 square feet inside, plus the screen porch with the view pictured. This location is perfect for a visit to the Space Center. It is also fairly good access for the Canaveral National Seashore. We highly recommend including the Canaveral National Seashore into your trip.
The entire area (this is a walkout basement) is available for the guests and it is separate so they do not have to share with the owners. There is one king bed in the bedroom and a futon and couch in the living room so up to 4 can sleep in the "apartment". The only reason it is not listed as an apartment is because it is not a full kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
Guests can have privacy or they can come upstairs to the upper deck if they wish to socialize. They may have company on the dock, but the "apartment" and screen porch is private.
The immediate neighborhood is a nice area for walking and bicyclists are everywhere. There is easy access to SR 528 and I 95. If you look at the map from Airbnb you can't tell that there are lots of trees and that is is a somewhat rural atmosphere. I would try (website hidden) Earth to get a feel for the area.
Public transit is on US 1, but it is a bit of a hike. The bus system does not provide terrific service. Plan on having you own car.
Other Things to Note
This setting is somewhat rural. It is almost an acre and there is a lot of vegetation. If you want marble and glass, this is not the place for you. If you want classic old Florida, this is the place for you. We live upstairs, so you will see us around and because you are downstairs, you will hear footsteps. We try to be quiet, but you can hear us. We are usually at work all day so you have no one around most of the day. We leave lights on for you if you are coming home after dark. :)
• No parties or events
• No smoking
No smoking. All of our guests have been so considerate we have found no need for any other rules.
I am a middle aged mom with a husband and an 18 year old son who is in college at UF. I work full time and so does my husband. We like living on the water and watching the dolphins and the manatees. The ospreys nest in the large pine tree in our neighbor's back yard, so you can watch them from the screen porch. We aren't very interested in the theme parks, but they are about 50 minutes away and it is an easy drive. We are 40 minutes from Orlando International Airport, and again, it is an easy drive. We are a good spot to stay if you want to go to the Kennedy Space Center. You can see the Vehicle Assembly Building from our dock.
