Property Details

Updated: May 7, 2015
Villa, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Have you ever wanted to travel to a place where Rockets soar and dreams are born! It is here!!! This bungalow has all the attributes! Beautiful and Private. You will feel as if, you have stepped back in time. My husband and I have traveled alot and incorporated the Best in our bungalows. 'The Hemingway' offers a glimpse into the old days. It is eclectic with an old world feel. Ernest Hemingway was a genius. I have visited his home in Key West many times and brought back fresh ideas for our Villa. It is very secluded here. We are surrounded by, palm trees, poinciania trees, citrus trees and lush foliage. Most of which was taken from cuttings or grown from seeds which we brought back from the Florida Keys. We have a hammock area in the back yard along with a beautiful fountain. More pics are available upon request. It took many years to create this little paradise and I feel so blessed to be able to share it. There is a King size Mahogany Pineapple bed in the Master suite with a sealy Posturepedic pillowtop mattress. This will give you many nights of beautiful dreams. Along with our luxurious 600 thread count sheets and goose down pillows! In the living area there is a Flexsteel golden vevet sofa along with gorgeous lighting. Ambience is so important in setting the mood for a perfect vacation! The dining area has a Mahogany buffet and round dining table to match. It is exquisite. I only wanted the very Best for our guests! We specialize in customer service! Our home is located on the same property as the Villa. No question is too small. We want you to have an incredible vacation while you are here with us! We do realize the economy is difficult right now. My husband and myself have reduced our rates based on this. Everyone needs some down time. We are in the residential area of South Cocoa Beach and are just blocks away from downtown. There is a trolley that is accesible from 13th street and is quite conveniant if you choose not to drive. We are seconds away from a lovely park on the ocean with free parking, facilities and seasonal lifeguards. We also provide an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to rinse off after your swim in the ocean. Luxury is our specialty! Book Now for an unforgettable vacation in a place with unsurpassed beauty and history. We are nestled among million dollar homes in South Cocoa beach off A1A. One side is the Atlantic Ocean and the other is the intracoastal. Amazing sunsets and sunrises! If you want, inquire about renting both boungalows which sleeps six. We have had many returning families and friends vacationing together choose to lease both bungalows. Please send me an e-mail or call. It is perfect for families with older children or friends vacationing together. The upstairs bungalow is called 'The Hemingway'. The downstairs bungalow is named ' Hollywood East ' this bungalow is 2 bedrooms and is art deco ispired by old Florida and Hollywood during the rat pack era. Our property is located between 15thst. ( south A1A ) and 16th st. in pristine south Cocoa beach. it is a 60 second walk to the ocean. The area is residential and very quiet. But, just blocks away from the downtown nightlife. So if, you are looking for a quiet, romantic and relaxing vacation. You will find it here. Thanks again for stopping by our site. Also, more pictures are available. Just ask me when, you send your e-mail. :) P.S. There are more picture available on the Cara Mia’s Blue Rose Face Book page. Like us and receive an extra bonus!

Great location

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at Paul and Elle's place it was very comfortable and artistically decorated. It could be considered a bit over the top for more practical people.
Interesting to note, no kettle, which we have encountered in quite a few of the places we have stayed, no problem, we used a pot.
If wifi is a priority then there needs to be an improvement we managed ok but sketchy reception.
Gets four stars for location, quiet area 5 minutes to beach.
We would stay there again.
Mel and irene.

Owner's Response: Hello Mel and Irene and thank you very much for the review. I wish that we would have known you needed a kettle. We could have gotten you one. The internet was fixed when Brighthouse came out after you had left. We needed a new extender. So sorry about the reception. We do hope you come back to visit us again at Cara Mia's Blue Rose.

Great opportunity.

Paul and Elle are superb hosts. Outstanding decor and cleanliness. Convenient location and reasonable price. Some difficulty in finding address as the highway is two one-way roads one block apart but with the same name. If you cannot find the address, proceed to the street going the other way and try again. This secluded Jewel is a real gem.

Loved our stay here! Very nice and clean place, everything we needed for the week and a great location very close to the beach and just far enough out of town to be away from the crowds, would highly recommend! :) Thanks Paul and Elle for your hospitality!

I was a guest in your condo during the week of 4/17 4/24. I really enjoyed some much needed r&r. I can't say enough about how comfortable and peaceful I found it. The bed may have been the most comfortable I've ever slept in. I really enjoyed reading on the deck as well. I will definitely return

Relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5
We found this property to be an good place for R&R. The sun deck was great. A sun lounger would have been a welcome addition to enjoy the sun. The kitchen provided us everything we needed to do most meals in. Towels and bed linens were promptly cleaned and returned. The lack of on-site laundry facilities was our biggest grip. We knew that this was not provided prior to our arrival. This is not because we did not want to travel to the laundromat, it was because the 2 local laundromats were so dirty and had more machines not serviceable than serviceable. In all we enjoyed our stay and would return.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that, you had an unpleasant experience at the laundrymat. We suggest that, our guests use the pick-up and delivery service for their personal laundry. We have always provided hampers for, our guest's towels and linens and wash them at no extra charge. We also have washed guest's personal laundry before if, they needed help with it. As far as we know. We are the only vacation rental which provides this service to our guests. We do have tri-fold chairs for, sun lounging. Customer service is very important to us. We wish that, we would have known of your dilemma. We would have definately, helped you with the problem. We are happy to have you return next year and hope you had a Beautiful time staying with us at Cara Mia's Blue Rose.
