We were happy to that this family was able to come together for the holidays and that we were able to accomodate them. We had the home decorated for the holiday season. We tried to make them feel at home. It sounds like they stayed very busy with all the area had to offer. Thank you for reserving with us.
A great vacation rental!
Our family had a great time staying at this home on vacation in 2011 and have booked again for 2013!!! We found it to be very clean and very nicely decorated. It was well stocked with everything that we needed. We spent most of our time in the pool, which really is as big as it looks! There were plenty of water toys for the kids, which was great. For us, it was the perfect location...a short drive to all sorts of attractions, restaurants/shopping and to the beach, but private (which was just what we were looking for)! We have a small family, with just two young children, but it is very large and can easily accommodate a large group without everyone having to share space. The owners were great to work with. We would highly recommend this rental home!!!

We were happy to have this family stay in our home and express the excitement that they had. We share that excitement when we hear that they will have memorable moments to take home and share with others of their vacation during their stay with us. We are excited to have them return. We have added a few amenities since their last visit. I am sure they will thoroughly enjoy them. I hope they will return again and have as much fun as they did before. Thank you!

Spectacular Vacation Rental!
Located on a quiet culdesac this home was the perfect rental for our group of 4 couples. The kitchen/dining/family room was large enough for all of us. The remodel of the 2nd floor is very nice and we selected this home because 4 of 5 the bedrooms had king/queen size beds. The driveway and garage was perfect for storing our 35 foot toy hauler and the motorcycles for bike week. We saw dolphins swimming nearly every morning during our 7 day stay. The pool area and view of the river was amazing - especially enjoyable were the sunrises which were easily viewed from the upper balcony sun room. We would definitely consider this rental again in the future!

These were one of our first guests in our home. We are excited to know that we had very satisfied guests. They were a pleasure to work with and our home was left in perfect condition. We do hope you return again.

A Perfect anniversary Celebration
To celebrate our 50th anniversary, my husband and I wanted a house in a warm, safe and pleasant place, large enough to accommodate comfortably ourselves, our four children and their spouses, and our five grandchildren, ranging in age from seven to two. Because we are a family that loves boating, fishing, and swimming, the location on the water, with a pool, was very attractive to us. We also like the location of a dead-end street, that made playing in the front year, with the many toys provided by the owners, fun and safe for young children. We were concerned that between the house and the canal at the back of the house there was only a slender strip of grass. For that reason, when the children were near the canal and the pool, we required them to wear life preservers and to be carefully supervised. Our fearless toddlers enjoyed riding in the canoe provided by the owners and fishing from the dock, and our two-year-old was very excited when he caught a fish. The house was perfect for us. The large, well-appointed kitchen made it easy for us to prepare large, elaborate meals. There was room to serve 15 people at several tables, including a small table for the four toddlers. The house is well-provided with large, wall-mounted flat screen Tv's, with DVD players; mostly they kept the children happy with episodes of "Wonder Pets." We did have warm enough weather to enjoy the beach and even for the bravest members of our party to take dips in the pool However, during a record-breaking cold snap, we appreciated the efficient central heating system. Nearby there were attractions the children enjoyed: Cocoa Beach, The Dinosaur Store, and the Brevard Zoo. Two families went to the Space Center, but found the long lines difficult for the children to endure. We enjoyed dining with the children on the Cocoa Beach Pier. Adults found Merritt's Table a good choice.

It was nice to know that this large group was able to get together over the holiday and we were able to accomodate them all in our home. We can see that no time was wasted during your stay. You all made the best of your time by getting around to visit many sites in our area as well as in our own back yard. The house was well taken care of during their stay. Keep us in mind for your next family gathering.
The Best of Both Worlds
Do we or don't we stay right on the beach? We chose this wonderful option and had the best of both worlds...the sand and the grass as well as the ocean and the pool. But our experience and enjoyment was by far the best on Banana river. Our yearly reunion with our two adult children, their spouses and the four grandchildren was one of the best yet. The pool provided hours of fun; even after returning from the 15 minute drive from our outings on the beach. We fished from the dock and all claimed the biggest catch; we rented a pontoon boat for a day and enjoyed a picnic lunch on one of the islands, we never tired of watching the daily parade of the dolphins that sped past the dock as they chased their next meal, we captured many pictures of the great blue heron that magically appeared whenever we got the fishing poles out and during it all we agreed that it was the best week...ever. The house is everything and more. One day, there were 20 of us for an even larger family reunion and it never felt crowded. That day provided photos that will be cherished for years. Choosing which colorful bedroom for was one of our hardest decisions all week. The kitchen was a dream to work in and had appliances that I wish I had in my own home. I loved my morning coffee sitting out on the deck while watching the awesome sunrise and we all gathered there in the early evening to enjoy a wonderful breeze. The Hendersons have thought of everything to make any family have a most memorable week. We lacked for nothing and will be forever grateful for all that was gained during our stay in their home. My son-in-law was especially trilled to find out that a world class wind surfer was right down the street and was available to give a lesson and the two youngest grandchildren were excited that Disney was just an hour away. And at the end of the week, we were all happy that enough fish had been caught to provide us with a delicious fish fry. The week far exceeded my expectations...which were very high to start with. I am most grateful for having the week to enjoy my family all under one roof and there is no doubt that we will return.
