Hi there, we're very casual here. It's a working class neighborhood where we speak to one another! Humble homes housing great, friendly people! I Work in the day at KSCVC, play music at night...may have the occasional jam, but if you are guesting with me, if you want a quiet nite..then that's okay...there is a mini-poo that we recently rescued..(not yappy, but EXTREMELY friendly)...my old girl Angel ..AND a cat that showed up on the porch...once a week I cook a Filipino dinner..you are welcomed to enjoy! Breakfast fixings will be here for you, along with coffee and tea...bbq, tv and smoking on back porch..welcome to use hot tub..(if it's working..lol)..no pic of the porch as my daughter has it filled with stuff to have a tag sale! but it's really perfect for relaxing after a day of touring..you have a mini-fridge in your room..and access to the kitchen...use anything that's there... We really do live in the house! (Please join us/me in the main living area)..Meaning it will be in various states of orderliness..depending on my work schedule...whew!! If you want "hotel" perfectness, then this is not the place for you...I suggest the Radisson in Cape Canaveral...or the Hilton in Cocoa Beach...I have another small room, hence the 3 guests...or possibly 4..Older children will be considered, but, again, the activity involved with youngsters won't gel with this household..there are board games and a wii for the older kids. .I hope that you enjoy your stay with me and on the beautiful Space Coast. And just so you know..we really enjoy meeting people from around the world and the states!! There are so many options out there...We consider it an honor when you choose to stay with us! I have a disabled brother who I help support..the rents that I get go to that..to help him have a better life..and I thank you!!

Additional Location Information
My humble home is located in Central Merritt Island. Walking to shopping, mall, movies. If you are inclined...a nice bike ride to the beach. My daughter and I would jog to Cocoa Village on a Friday nite, wander around to hear the bands, have a Chocolate Martini and then jog home! Quiet, older neighborhood where the neighbors actually talk to one another!
