Always love staying here. So nice to unplug and get away and feel like a local. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you Paul and Elle!
Location, location, location!
Great experience, Paul & Elle have put together a unique rental getaway that will bring us back for sure. The rental is literally a 2 minute walk (if not 90 seconds) and is situated just far enough from the craziness of the heart of Cocoa Beach but close enough for easy ride into downtown and surrounding restaurants. They also had great recommendations for where to eat. We had the upper unit with the private deck that we ended up on every night for a final drink and stare at the stars. The loungers were comfortable and we couldn't have asked for a better place to turn off the chaos of everyday life and relax. Thank you Paul & Elle, we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Lived up to description
I enjoyed my stay at Cara Mia's Blue Rose. I liked the privacy, the spacious outside deck and the unique style of the place we stayed in. I was looking for relaxation, and that is what I found there. No problem walking over to the beach, which was un-crowded and beautiful at this location. Really enjoyed my time there.
Cocoa Beach Vacation 2019
My stay at Cara Mia was very nice Property owners were very nice. Owners live on site and wee available to answer questions. This reminds me of the Florida I knew years ago. I really loved the decor, Ernest Hemingway-Key West theme was perfect for me. Vintage Condo was on second floor. Ocean was within walking distance. One parking space in front. No actual view of the Ocean but attached wood deck was great perfect for morning tea. I enjoyed my stay.
Nice people, not secluded and No visible Beach
Paul and Elle are very nice . The decor in the Bungalow is cool to look at but the ONLY comfortable place to sit or lie down is the Bed. The deck off the Bungalow is nice . If you watch TV they have the very most BASIC Cable and no way to play any DVD or anything else. VERY SMALL. To say its SECLUDED is not so. The outside area is very cramped , parking is cramped , the Landlords and another tenant are there, and you cannot begin to see a Beach . Traffic noise is very loud , and the only way to leave the property is to BACK out into a multiple lane, one Way highway . One time enough people were out that we could turn around in the parking area and pull forward .
The kitchen is well equipped . Overall , I would NOT recommend this property . But I will reiterate the Bodys are very nice and very hospitable landlords , even leaving us a bottle of Champagne in the fridge.
First of all, I am shocked and baffled by this review. My husband and I have been a little Mom and Pop business here for over 10 years now. We have never had these kind of complaints before. The sofa is a Flexsteel top of the line. It cost three thousand dollars. It is very comfortable. We only provide top of the line furniture for our guests. We do plan on up grading the cable. There was a DVD player in the cabinet under the TV. We would have been happy to hook it up. I also would like to mention, this couple did not want to stay another week because we are not oceanfront. We happily refunded their deposit to them. We do not advertise oceanfront. We are one half block to the ocean. It is about a 90 second walk to the boardwalk. As far as the noise. When, you are up stairs inside the apartment you cannot hear anything. We have high quality insulation up there. We have a parking place for each unit and most people choose to back their cars into the driveway. But, I still back out all the time. We are sorry that, this cuple was upset. But, I guess you just cannot satisfy everyone. No matter how hard you try.
Relaxing, nice apartment!
Well decorated romantic and comfy apartment away from the downtown noise. Nice deck and Paul was a gracious gentleman to work with. WiFi was reliable on the deck which was made relaxing on with coffee while catching up on our Brewers a treat. Overall a great stay in Cocoa Beach! The private upper deck is really a nice treat but I am sure the lower level apartment with its open patio would be great too. Recommended!
There is so much to do here. We are providing our guests with a compiled list of our favorite restaurants and our favorite dishes. Besides eating, Cocoa Beach has great entertainment. This is a little town steeped in history also. Centered around space. Cocoa Beach has been a mecca for Astronauts and celebrities. You never know who you might bump into. We are 10 minutes from Port Canaveral and 45 minutes from Disney.
