The house is absolutely beautiful beach house. Atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing, host is lovely and very helpful with local advice and tips for the sites nearby. Host provided excellent coffee and breakfast (breads, oatmeal, juices etc.) so basically you didn't need anything but a relaxed mindset for the night. Cocoa village near by with car, nice restaurants and boutiques etc. Excellent beach at Cape Canaveral, again easy reach with car. It was really nice returning back to the house after a day at the beach or noisy Kennedy Space Center to just kick-back and relax. Skip resorts and Orlando. This is the base you need for your holiday! Thanks!

Katherine was wonderful and her home is beautiful! I would stay again. We even saw dolphins in the water later in the evening. She was friendly and was very accommodating.

Katherine was an excellent host. Before we traveled she gave us great advice on transportation. The house and room were both beautiful. A small breakfast and coffee were provided in the kitchen. If we ever come out this way again we will definitely look her up.

Katherine User ProfileKatherine is a superhost.

Hello, I'm Katherine a well travelled Chef that has been trying to retire for years, but can't seem to get the kitchen out of my blood. In my travels I have had the good fortune of meeting great people that hosted me and remain my friends many years later. Perhaps as a host I can pay the experience forward. I love people, food, fun, a good cocktail and mostly laughing; any kind will do.

I live a simple, uncluttered life, as you can probably see in the pictures of my home. At this stage of my life the only things I collect are friends, love and memories.

My home is not stuffy, please put your feet up, stretch out for a snooze on the couch, my house is designed for COMFORT!

Mutual respect and clear understanding are key.
