“Great Florida Rental!!”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2014

We found Merritt Island to be the ideal Florida vacation spot and Carol's Island Home is absolutely our first choice accommodation. Located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood it is within convenient driving distance of many Florida attractions. Cocoa Beach is only 10 minutes from the house. Other local attractions such Kennedy Space Center, the Merritt Island National Nature Preserve, Manatee Park, and Cape Canaveral are close by. One evening we monitored a NASA launch countdown on the large screen smart TV in the den and then stepped out onto the front lawn to watch the rocket lift off. It was an awesome experience! Orlando and it's many attractions are also within easy driving distance. On several occasions we had overnight guests and every one them commented on the beauty, comfort and convenience of Carol's home. Carol's home is nicely appointed, comfortable and spacious. Even with three teenagers and three adults in residence there was always plenty of space for everyone to pursue their favorite activity whether it was watching TV, surfing the Internet, visiting, playing board games, hanging out at the pool, or just finding a quiet corner to read. If you like to read or watch movies an annual membership at the Merritt Island Public Library, with its extensive collection of books and movies, is only $15. We found Carol to be an excellent landlord. She is easily accessible and goes out of her way to make sure your visit is enjoyable and trouble free. We plan to go back to Carol's Island Home often.

We loved staying here! Thank you for a most comfortable home away from home!

From Alabama
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carol's Island Home! She had everything provided we needed AND wanted...washer/dryer, well stocked kitchen with pantry items (like brownies and canned goods):-), swimming pool with floats, balls, etc., lots of pool towels, extra sheets and blankets, 2 living rooms (one for reading and watching the kids swim through the glass doors/windows and the other for t.v./movie watchers, on and on...beautifully decorated... It was home away from home! Home without all the distractions! Only lots of FUN for the whole family. Her home provided privacy as one of the living rooms was able to be blocked off with doors to offer another "bedroom". It was PERFECT! Carol's home is a place we would like to visit again, and definitely tell of our friends to stay there! Carol was very personable to speak with on the phone...kind and considerate! Thanks Carol!
