The House is just a short walk to several great restaurants, fun bars and main supermarket. Listed for the first time in February 2013, this House has already received no fewer than thirty-three 5-Star Guest Reviews on major vacation rental listing sites.
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 had a marvelous stay and the house is phenomenal.”
PI, party of six, Wisconsin, March 3, 2014:
“This is a wonderful home and Jon and Liz do a great job of making sure everything is just perfect for your stay. We had 3 couples over 60 staying for the week and all were greatly impressed with the location and the comfortable furnishings and décor of this home. Absolutely everything you might need is in this home, and it is a home, not just a rental- very comfortable and great location. The pool and spa are a great addition, also. We will be back and we love Cocoa Beach!”
LS, party of 7, Oklahoma, February 17, 2014:
“Wow....we are very hard to impress, but this place did that and then some! Location was (email hidden)ach was a short hop away, and even the Cocoa Beach Pier was in easy walking distance! The house itself was amazing--clean, well decorated (a tropical, relaxed feel), and had everything we needed to be comfortable. We had a party of 8 stay here--reconnected with family members--and we all had plenty of room without tripping on each other. My husband and I had the master suite upstairs, while my sister and her husband had the downstairs suite, with our Mom having a room, two girls had a room, and the lone boy had the air mattress in the living room. Waking up and going out to the balcony was (email hidden)e view was gorgeous! We are already talking about meeting old friends on vacation, and renting this house again! We will definitely return to this house! I cannot say enough great things about how comfortable we all were on this vacation. As I arrived, the cleaning was just about to be finished....and I could tell that the house was well taken care of. The pool....what could I possible say about the pool? We spend an entire day down in our private salt water pool (youngest niece learned to swim that day!), and then hopped over (a minute walk) to the beach. If you are even considering renting a beach house--you would be hard-pressed to find a better one than this. Like I said earlier...we WILL be back! By the way....the photos don't do this house justice...it's great in the photos, but better in person!”
TW, party of 6, Colorado, February 5, 2014:
“We enjoyed the home and your recommendations!”
BS, party of 8, Georgia, February 4, 2014:
“We were all very satisfied with the house and really enjoyed it - even tho it rained several days.”
JF, party of 4, Florida, January 25, 2014:
“It was so nice working with you for our rental.”
VC, party of 8, Michigan, January 16, 2014:
“Everything about our stay was wonderful. Jon and Liz had the place sparkling when we arrived. The location is ideal. Just steps from the beach and withing walking distance from the Pier and the main drag in Cocoa Beach. The pool was a huge hit with our 3 grandkids. They were in it continually, and it was just the right size them. The spa was great for us old folks too. The place is very spacious, and having 2 master suites was perfect for us. The kitchen/living area is huge and well appointed, and perfect for having friends over for dinner. It is one of those southern 'upside down' houses (as we Northerners call them) so the only possible drawback is the stairs up to the main living area, which was fine for all of us but could be a logistic issue for older people. We also got a lot of use out of the gas grill. Everything was just top-knotch...from the furnishings to the linens. We loved it and hope to come back again next year. Thanks Liz and Jon. You have done a wonderful job.”
TM, Georgia, party of seven, December 1, 2013:

WB, West Virginia, party of six, November 20, 2013:
“We stayed here for our 31st anniversary. The house was beautiful, everything it was advertised to be. The pool was fantastic. Short walk to the beach, dining and the Cocoa Beach Pier. We would recommend this house to anyone and we will be returning. Thank you for a fantastic week.”
MD, Ohio, party of six, November 3, 2013:

KO, Ohio, party of nine, October 25, 2013:
“Our family really enjoyed our stay at this Cocoa Beach home. The house was very clean, well kept, and the kitchen was well equipped! Which made it nice to cook up the shark meat the guys caught on their fishing excursion! We all enjoyed the pool and spa. It was perfect with 4 little grandsons! The walk to the beach was minimal. The weather was perfect (mid 80's) all week! Jon was very nice to work with. Thanks for the memories!”
JL, North Carolina, party of eight, October 11, 2013:
“Had a great time and thanks for everything.”
MM, England, party of four, October 11, 2013:

CA, Florida, party of seven, September 25, 2013:
“Perfect location for our family Girls Getaway Weekend! The house was beautiful - truly had the feel of a home. Everything we could have wanted or needed was right there for us and the entire place was immaculate. Every aspect of this home is top of the line! Jon and Liz are great managers and went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. We may well make this our annual go-to location!!”
MM, England, party of four, September 10, 2013:
“A big thank you to you both for such a lovely place to stay.”
SS, Florida, party of six, August 30, 2013:
“This is a marvelous rental house. The furnishings and items in the house are all first class. The house is very well equipped. Best rental house we have ever rented. The location to the beach is great. We were visiting the Space Center while we were staying at the house. The Space Center is only 25 minutes away, and an easy drive. The Space Center is worth seeing, but wait until your kids are older. We had 6 people staying in the house. 4 adults and 2 pre-teen children. The house was a perfect size for us. The manager for this property is very attentive. He answered all my emails very promptly and accurately. This made planning very easy. We all had a great time and got what we expected. Thanks for a fabulous vacation.”
KR, Georgia, party of six, August 29, 2013:
“Stayed a week in this fabulous home. It is truly a home and not just a rental house. It is immaculate. The kitchen is spectacular. Feels like you could comfortably move right in. Proximity to the beach, stores and restaurants is perfect. Loved the privacy and safety of the home and pool. A real neighborhood feel in a great area. Wished we could have stayed longer. Jon and Liz are wonderful people to deal with..”
HN, Florida, party of six, August 12, 2013:
“Thank you for the great stay! The boys absolutely loved the pool in this hot weather.”
JW, New Hampshire, party of eight, August 7, 2013:
“When we walked into the house, our jaws dropped. This was not a rental, this is someone's personal home. Inside of the home beautiful, spotless and good size. Everything you need to cook, swim, play. Great pool area, a hop, skip and a jump to the beach.”
HS, Tennessee, party of six, August 3, 2013:
“A little slice of Heaven! I cannot express enough in words what a marvelous vacation we had, and the accommodations were 90% of it. The Large Beach house is perfect. Very spacious, so clean it feels like a new house, comfortable sleeping areas, short distance to the beach, affordable with a group , and private pool makes it even better. Jon and Liz go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as home…and it was that and more. Our next visit to Cocoa Beach area, I would not stay anywhere else...and if you’re wondering if you should stay here… (email hidden), England, party of seven, July 31, 2013:
“Thank you for making our stay in this lovely house so special. We had a wonderful time here and loved Cocoa Beach.”
SS, Ohio, party of six, July 27, 2013:
“The Harding Beach House is a great property along Cocoa Beach. The house was fully accommodating for our family of 6 with all of the amenities needed for a great trip to Florida. The pool and spa was a great centerpiece for our family to enjoy. Cocoa Beach is within a short walk and easily accessible. The beach slopes gently into the ocean and is great for young children to play in the surf. During our week-long visit in July, the beach was not crowded regardless of the day of week. If you are looking to keep busy, the Cocoa Beach Pier within easy walking or biking distance and Orlando is within an hour drive. But if you are looking for a place to just relax and get away, this property offers it.”
TF, Illinois, party of seven, July 19, 2013:
“We enjoyed our stay. It was exquisite! We will certainly contact you for our next vacation.”
HS, Tennessee, party of six, July 11, 2013:

SS, Virginia, party of seven, July 6, 2013:
“Highly recommend this property. It is very nicely maintained .Jon and Liz have thought of everything you may need to enjoy a beach vacation. We have already booked again for next year!”
GL, Maryland, party of seven, July 3, 2013:
“Everything about this rental was superb! The management was on top of everything and there for you at the drop of a hat. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay!”
HG, Tennessee, party of six, June 20, 2013:
“The house was great and our family had a great time.”
MF, Kentucky, party of eight, June 19, 2013:
“We loved our stay in Cocoa Beach and it was perfect for our family vacation. The house had everything we needed to make the week enjoyable for all. Everything was better than described and Jon and Liz made sure we had everything we needed. We liked how helpful they were and how welcome they made us feel. The house was very clean and well-maintained. The kids loved the pool and it was a very easy walk to the beach. The house also had plenty of pool items/toys which the kids loved. While we were there we were close to restaurants and putt putt golf, so we didn’t have to go far to find what we were looking for in town. It was a very easy drive to and from Orlando for airport or Disney. I would recommend this property to a friend or any of Jon & Liz properties.”
GP, New York, party of nine, June 4, 2013:

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.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
