This beach vacation home is perfect for families and friends wanting to live and breathe the beach. The house stands in its own ground, some 20 yards past some palm trees to the dune crossover. Cocoa Beach Pier is just 4 blocks along beaches with miles of golden sands.
This 2300 sq ft beach house has its own fully fenced garden featuring a private heated pool and vast deck, tables and chairs in shaded areas, parasols and BBQ grill – all inside a tall screened enclosure. Because the pool uses salt filtration, use of chemicals is minimized.
Upstairs, you have ocean views from the open plan living area with its large flat-screen cable TV and its amazing sunrise & sunset balcony. The airiness of the living space comes from the large windows and the blend of huge kitchen, comfortable living area and a dining area that provides ocean views from almost every seat. The master bedroom suite has its own oceanview balcony, HDTV, en suite bathroom and large walk-in closet. Downstairs, three more bedrooms (all luxury queen beds) offer the chance to sleep with the sounds of the ocean so close. Every convenience is included, and this covers wireless Internet, a large garage, ceiling fans, washing machine and dryer. Immediately in front of your garage is parking for up to two cars.
Conveniently, the house is only steps away from one of the very best vantage points to view spectacular Cape Canaveral rocket launches in comfort – on the beach.

“We are loving it and the house, what a great place. Want to bring rest of family next year!!!”
VS, North Carolina, party of four, August 9, 2015:
“We loved staying here and are ready to go back! The house was very clean, well-kept, and had plenty of space for our group of 4. I loved the open kitchen and living room area and was pleased with all of the amenities provided. There were lots of ‘extras’ such as beach towels, toys, bikes, and books which were very appreciated! We flew in from another state so were unable to take along all of those extras needed for a beach vacation. The house had everything we needed and more! The description and pictures of the house plus the visitor reviews are right on the money. The neighborhood was quiet as advertised and it was a very short walk to the beach. We loved the uncrowded beach and the short walk to the pier. The private pool and hot tub were such a treat - clean and well-maintained! The town is small but traffic is light and there is plenty of entertainment within a 5 mile range. We enjoyed the reptiles at Gator Golf (twice!), saw manatees feeding during a boat excursion through the 1000 island nature preserve, and saw sea turtles and original pristine white sand at Jetty Park. It was the most relaxing, comfortable, and fun vacation yet! Previously we’ve always stayed in hotels/condos on vacation so I was anxious about renting a house. However, Jon and Liz made it a very pleasant and easy process. They were very responsive and wonderful to work with! This vacation was everything we had hoped for. We look forward to returning!!”

MP, Pennsylvania, party of six, July 16, 2015:
“Our group of seven stayed very comfortably in this beautiful home. The location was perfect. With only a few steps to the beach we could swim in our private pool or walk to the beach. My favorite thing about this house was that it is in walking distance to everything, Publics, Beach Wear, Reataurants, the Pier, bars etc. Jon & Liz were amazing. We couldn't have asked for better property managers to make us feel right at home. If we needed anything Liz would be there momentarily. The house was very clean and well equity with everything we needed for the week. From pantry items to pool toys to beach needs, they provided it all. We had an early flight and Jon was very accommodating in allowing us into the house a few hours early. We will definitely be contacting Jon & Liz for our next vacation. Thanks for making this years vacation special. We will always have very happy memories..”
TL, Arizona, party of seven, July 2, 2015:
“Our extended family(7 people) recently stayed here for 1 week and we could not have been more pleased.The house is very nice,location is great - near the pier but far enough away that the beach in front of the house is never crowed like other areas along the beach.The fact that there were beach umbrellas,boogie boards,toys,beach towels,bicycles,etc. meant that we didn't have to worry about bringing "stuff" with us - especially important for us since we were traveling from Arizona.Jon and Liz were wonderful to work with and everyone had a wonderful time.I would highly recommend this house for anyone visiting the Cocoa Beach area.This is our 5th "beach vacation" with our extended family over the last 5 years(in different areas of the country) and definitely the best so far.”
LH, Ohio, party of nine, June 19, 2015:
”We had such a great time! The house has been perfect for our needs especially the private pool!! It has easily accommodated all of us! The access to the beach is great also! I will be sure to write a great review when I get home!”
PC, Indiana, party of four, June 17, 2015:
“We stayed early summer 2015. Summary: Great house, great location, great people to work with. Our family hopes we can return there soon. It was worth the money. Details: The house: Spacious. The living room, kitchen, and dining room are all one big area, which is nice socially. Our kids were able to retreat to their own rooms when they wanted. The furniture was comfortable and the house was well equipped. I appreciated there were a fair number of beach and pool items there for use. The house also had two bikes. The house was clean and kept up well. There was a place in back to wash off the sand from the beach before going into the house. The pool: The pool was great, and I liked that it wasn't a boring rectangle. Having a screen for bugs is also nice. The pool has a remote control for the heater. It is complex enough you need to have it explained before use, but it we had no issues once they did that. The water was clear and the pool well maintained. There is a pool guy that comes every week to help maintain it. The location: Just a hundred feet or so to the beach. There are no roads to cross to get there. If you walk another hundred feet or so down the beach, you can get to Cocoa beach pier. That area has a lifeguard and rentals. The location is quiet and feels safe. There are good restaurants and shopping places near-by. The rental-people: They provided a folder with tons of information about the house and the area. They truly seemed to want us to have the best experience possible. All my e-mails were answered within hours. Usually minutes. The second day there our Internet went out. Within 15 minutes of my telling Liz and Jon they made an appointment for the next morning with the internet guy, whom they knew by name. Liz took care of everything and we didn’t have to be home while it was fixed. (Turned out someone hit a pole near the house that knocked out the Internet.)”
LH, Ohio, party of nine, June 15, 2015:
“The house is wonderful and perfect for us!”
CC, Colorado, party of nine, June 12, 2015:
“Have enjoyed using the house and pool.”
RP, Florida, party of eight, June 3, 2015:
“We absolutely loved staying here. It was our second time vacationed in this home and we can't say enough good things about our experiences both years. The house is just a couple minutes of walking distance to the beach, which is perfect for us, especially for our little ones. We had three generations staying there and there were lots of local options of activities to help keep everyone happy. The house is kept in excellent condition. Liz came by the first day of both of our stays to go over a couple things with us and couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Highly recommend this vacation beach home.”
BS, Tennessee, party of four, May 31, 2015:
“The home was super clean and the area was very quite. We would most definitely stay in this house again. The home was very convenient to everything. Can't wait to visit Cocoa Beach next year. The people who manage the house are amazingly sweet and go out of their way to make sure your stay is awesome.”
RM, Ohio, party of eight, May 13, 2015:
“Our family of 6 adults and two boys, 4 and 6, had a wonderful stay at this home. The beach was steps away and the pool was used extensively. The house was very clean and Jon and Liz were very helpful and professional. They wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the home and that we knew of all the amenities. The area is quiet and relaxing. Everything in the home was in working condition. There were a number of restaurants within walking distance. I would definitely choose this property again if going to Cocoa Beach.”
PA, Virginia, party of eight, May 6, 2015:
“We are so much enjoying your lovely home.”
DB, Michigan, party of eight, April 12, 2015:
“We appreciate your effort and thanks again for everything. We had a great week.”
JS, Ohio. Party of five, April 6, 2015:
“house was very clean when we arrived, pool and hot tub we used extensively. Great being so close to the beach and pier. 2 bikes and beach equipment in garage are great since we flew in. Had 3 teenagers and they like every thing so close. Many restaurants within walking distant, don't miss the Tokyo Steak house a block away. Very secluded yet close to main drag.”
LS, Oklahoma, party of four, March 31, 2015:
“This is our second stay at the Harding Beach house in as many years. This house is a close to home as you can get while (email hidden) clean and comfortable! We met friends for a long weekend, and they loved it every bit as much as we did! My husband and I (while enjoying the pool) decided that when we come back again--even if it's just the 2 of us--we want to stay here again. The first trip ( a year ago) we had 5 adults and 3 kids in the house with plenty of space left over...this time we had 4 adults. I can't say enough good things about this place...the house itself, the access to the beach, the proximity of so many things to do and places to (email hidden)rfection! Jon and Liz are awesome...friendly and there if you need them, without hovering. You won't be disappointed.....”
TL, Colorado, party of eight, March 26, 2015:

MH, Minnesota, party of six, March 3, 2015:
“Great vacation home for families!!! We stayed a full week and you would have thought it was our home!!! Jon and Liz are great managers and reply quickly to any needs you have!!! We definitely want to go back and stay again! The property description is exactly what is stated and is extremely well kept! We had 3 children and 5 adults and had plenty room for everyone! Don't let this property pass you by book it now!!!! So close to the beach and the Cocoa Beach Pier! The kids also loved the Gator Golfin park. Thanks Jon and Liz for the great family vacation!!!!”

“My wife and I along with our two children of 11 and 6 booked this location for a full week and wish we had booked for more! the home is extremely clean and cozy... a home away from home and our hosts were friendly and respectful. we will be back!!!”
EM, Alabama, party of eight, December 5, 2014:
“Thanks for everything. The house was perfect. We had a great time!”
DL, North Dakota, party of ten, December 1, 2015:
“We chose this location for a family vacation as we wanted to be in a relaxed atmosphere close to the beach and yet able to access sites if we chose. Jon and Liz were great to work with and explained everything in detail. Our family consists of 3 grandchildren 2 years old and under as well as 7 adults. The house was set up perfect for us with the 2 large masters accommodating the young families and the other 2 bedrooms were perfect for grandparents and childless family member's. We were close enough to enjoy Kennedy space center, port Canaveral, and Sea world. The beach toys and bike were a nice touch. The pool and hot tub were perfect for those days we wanted some down time. Cocoa was a nice relaxing area with very friendly, helpful people everywhere we went. The Brevard Zoo was a disappointment to our group. Thank you Jon and Liz for helping create lifetime memories for this family.”
JO, California, party of six, November 16, 2014:
“We had such a great time at the house! It was so well stocked, roomy and clean. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thank you for making everything so easy!”
RS, Michigan, party of six, November 5, 2014:
“What a wonderful place to stay! The house is large, clean, well supplied, and every need is thought of. Liz and Jon were readily available and provided assistance and information that made our stay perfect. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed, the kitchen had every convenience - just like home and some that I wish I had at home, lots of places to gather as a large group or alone to read. The house is just steps away from the beach and there are plenty of beach toys available to satisfy everyone's wishes, including wave boards, beach balls, coolers, umbrellas, chairs, and mats. The pool and spa are inviting and well kempt. The pier and many delicious restaurants are within a short walking distance (3-4 blocks). If you have a car, there are many great places to visit - we enjoyed the Brevard Zoo and Kennedy Space Center. The house is private and quiet - a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. We will definitely keep this house and hosts on the top of our list.”
CS, Scotland, party of five, October 23, 2014:
“The best family trip we’ve had for years. Great location. Top end for quality. Liz and Jon great on the ground assistance, support and information. We found the villa to be well suited for our time in Cocoa Beach - 2 minutes from the beach ( a wow beach with great surf). Rooms are spacious and comfortable and well appointed. Living room and kitchen are just great for socialising with a great level of comfort. The pool is great - so too is the spa, and with a covered deck it's bug free day and night. The neighbourhood is quiet - seriously quiet and check this - the locals are all friendly and helpful - they stopped and chatted and gave some real useful info on the area and beyond. We'd go back tomorrow if time allowed. Next year tho.........good job Liz & Jon.”
JB, England, party of five, October 16, 2014:
“This house was great. While 60 mins away from Disney it gave the family a chance to relax away from the pressure that gets pushed on you at Disney and universal but still close enough to get the full experience. We also had the advantage of the beach so close and at night it is just beautiful. Staying in cocoa also gave easy access to more local attractions like the zoo and Kennedy space centre. But an overlooked highlight is a biplane flight from the local airport that we did aerobatics over cocoa beach a truly great experience that I would recommend to any one. The house is set in a great place with loads to do near by and loads of great places to eat. The sunset dinner is amazing to watch the dolphins and papa vietos is a must.”
LC, Norway, party of seven, September 22, 2014:
“My family and I rented this home for three weeks from the middle of August and we absolutely loved it. The house is spacious even for 7 adults and at no time did we feel 'crowded'. The house has everything you need for a perfect beach getaway. Miles and miles of white sandy beaches is only a three minute walk from the house. If you get tired of the beach or want a more private area the house has a nice pool and spa. And that spa felt pretty good after a few hours of surfing. :-) The house also has one of the most beautiful and spacious kitchens I have ever seen. This property is managed by Jon and Liz. They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Their reply to our inquiries was fast and prompt. They also had quite a few tips of things to do in the area, like the best barbeque restaurant in possibly the world. Be sure to check out Madd Jack's Grillin Shack that's only a block away from the house. All in all this house felt like a home right away and I highly recommend staying here. Top notch experience.”
VR, Ohio, party of eight, September 20, 2014:
“This was my first time renting a beach house and we could not done any better than with Jon and Liz as managers. They were easy to reach, very responsive, and kind. The house was in great shape and had plenty of room for the 6 adults and two children who stayed there. We were in the pool or ocean all day and in the pool during the evenings. What a great vacation! Worth absolutely every penny.”
MS, Ohio, party of seven, August 10, 2014:
“The house was lovely with everything we could need. We loved being so close to the beach. Thanks for helping us out. A week to remember.”
SR, Quebec, party of eight, August 4, 2014:
“We really have appreciated our time in Cocoa Beach, especially because of your warm welcome and assistance. We will write a positive review with pleasure. I am sure we will have the opportunity to revisit Cocoa Beach in the future and you will be the first to know.”
SR, Texas, party of eight, July 31, 2014:
“Awesome multi-family getaway! Fabulous beach home! Beautifully decorated, clean and well stocked. Includes everything needed for a day at the beach or at the pool....you just bring the sunscreen. We had two families of four from different states meet in Florida, everyone had a wonderful time! The teens loved the surfing (surf board rentals are within walking distance) and playing in the warm ocean waves. The adults loved the relaxation, ocean, and walking distance to the pier. We all had a wonderful dinner at Milliken's at Port Canaveral. Jon and Liz were very attentive to a minor appliance malfunction which was fixed promptly. Look forward to visiting again for another PERFECT vacation!”
SH, Kentucky, party of seven, July 12, 2015:
“We really enjoyed the home. You do a great job.”
JH, Kentucky, party of eight, July 4, 2014:
“We loved our stay! Looking forward to returning!”
PC, Arkansas, party of eight, July 2, 2014:
“Wonderful time at the beach house! Beautiful inside and out, steps from the nearly private Cocoa Beach, very nice patio and pool/spa area. Everything as advertised...would rent again in a heartbeat if we could find the time to get away. Accommodations very comfortable and cozy with plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Really enjoyed the screened-in pool area...no bugs! Try the Sunset Bar & Grill on SR520: wonderful fresh flounder in a funky old-school Florida bar setting on the Banana River with homemade Key Lime pie! Yum!”
JD, Ohio, party of eight, June 25, 2014:
“What a wonderful vacation. The Oceanview Beach House was beautiful and fully supplied with all we needed for a wonderful time. We loved the pool and spa as well as the beach toys, bikes, and especially the umbrellas which were so helpful with shade for the adults and baby. It is everything the website says and more!!! Thanks to Liz and Jon for their efforts and help to make our stay so enjoyable!”
JM, Wisconsin, party of eight, June 18, 2014:
“With a group of 8 people ranging from a family of four who had a 5 year old and an 11 year old, to a married couple with no kids, to two single men, it was important we find a vacation home that met all of our needs. This home certainly met everything! The kids loved the pool and were in it from morning until night unless we were at the beach which was literally a minute walk. In fact, the one day we went to Magic Kingdom, our 5 year old asked, half way through the day, if we could leave to go swim in the pool! Jon and Liz were excellent to work with. Their response time with any of our questions was terrific from the time we inquired about this property until the time we left. We were especially impressed with all of the small details that were thought of.....the beach chairs, sand toys, kite, bikes, beach towels, baby gate at the top of the stairs, etc. Around the pool there was plenty of seating both shaded and full sun. The house had plenty of spacious bedrooms and the 3 bathrooms were just the right amount for 8 people. We especially liked the convenience of being able to walk to restaurants without having to drive everywhere. We were extremely pleased and would definitely love to come back for another vacation!”
VB, Florida, party of four, June 18, 2014:
“The perfect beach getaway for everyone! The house was clean and spotless upon arrival. The beach is just a short walk away and there are so many attractions within the area. Our vacation was unforgettable. We will definitely be back soon!”
RL, Illinois, party of nine, June 14, 2014:
“The house exceeded everyone’s expectations.”
SS, Virginia, party of eight, May 29, 2014:
“This is the second year we have rented this property. We plan to rent again next year. The house has every thing you need. Very clean and comfortable. Jon and Liz great and make sure you have anything you will need.”
RP, Florida, party of eight, May 20, 2014:
“What a great property and a great location. Perfect for families of all ages. Located next to everything you want. Jon and Liz were great. We already booked for next year.”
JM, Rhode Island, party of seven, April 26, 2014:
“First off, pictures don't do this house justice. Absolutely gorgeous! We arrived with 4 adults and 3 kids, plenty of comfortable space for all. All of the adults were impressed with the cleanliness of the house, very clean, even the grill was super clean! The kids were impressed with the loads of beach and pool toys available to use, and we used them all! If you are looking for something close to everything, then this location is the one. We walked to an awesome BBQ place to pick up dinner (twice, so good), Dunkin Donuts daily, Publix supermarket, and of course, THE BEACH! The beach is about a 1 minute leisurely shuffle, very convenient with young kids who require a lot of beach "stuff", don't want to carry "stuff", and who will inevitably need to use the bathroom during the day. The pool was just the right size, we would spend the afternoons after the beach, at the pool. The kids loved it, the adults loved lounging around it. Just a fabulous house with a great location. We will definitely be heading back in the future! Also, Jon and Liz were super helpful and responsive, an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks for the wonderful memories!”

Sejour sympa piscine agréable et mer Proche. Tout le confort dans la maison. Nous avons été surpris d'avoir un immeuble juste au bord de la maison, qui n'apparaît pas sur les photos fournies sur abnb, et dont les balcons donnent sur la terrasse de la piscine.
Cela n'a malgré tout pas été gênant.Ce qui est dommage c'est que la cuisine n'est pas au même niveau que la piscine et le barbecue, ce qui n'est pas cool pour manger dehors, surtout que le grill de la cuisine ne fonctionne pas.
Jon and Liz were ideal property managers - from the reservation process all the way through to our departure at the wonderful home in Cocoa Beach. They were prompt, helpful, and timely. The home was perfect, exactly as described on the website, and in great shape. Thanks for making the trip so memorable for my family!
We had a great week-long stay at the Harding Beach House in Cocoa Beach in mid-November. The house is great, modern and spotless, with a 1 minute walk to the beach. We all loved the pool and spa which were a nice option when we had had enough ocean. Jon and Liz are outstanding managers: the initial arrangements 6 months ago were clear and easy, we got updates and schedule reminders close to the visit, and even quick attention when we couldn't find a hairdryer. It was really nice to find drinks in the refrigerator and some snacks when we first arrived, too -- a great way to end a day of travel. All in all we would be happy to do it again.
