Cara Mia's Blue Rose a secluded jewel in South Cocoa Beach


Property Details

Updated: Sep 23, 2016
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!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Hemingway for Labor Day weekend. Paul and Elle were wonderful and gracious. We had a nice, quiet and relaxing weekend. With just a short walk to the beach at the quiet part of Cocoa it was just what we wanted!

Enjoyable pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

Pleasant relaxing stay for the month of Feb. Very quiet area within walking distance to the beach. Owner's house is adjacent on the property and Paul & Elle are very gracious hosts easily accessible for questions, directions etc. A chilled bottle of champagne with two chilled glasses greets new arrivals. Comfortable king size four poster bed for a good nights sleep.

Florida vacation 2015

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I hadn't taken a real vacation in over 5 years. He's been working a lot of crazy hours and traveling. His Texas National Guard Unit recently deployed to Iraq, he is back support stateside. A Blessing for me.

Anyway, we enjoyed our stay on Cocoa Beach. We stayed at a lovely place, within walking distance to beach. Bed was very comfortable. When we arrived, I notified owner we had arrived, Paul promptly came out and introduced himself and showed us upstairs. They had provided us with some chilled champagne and glasses in refrigerator. Unfortunately I am not a champagne kinda gal. But the thought was lovely.

I was hoping we could see beach/ocean from balcony, but all is good, we did go to beach one morning and enjoyed the fabulous sunrise...

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed ain't The Hemingway for 3 night at the end of June. I was traveling alone and cane to town for a wedding. The location was perfect, close enough for quick drive to the more touristy area just just far enough away to be quiet and payed back. The rental has everything you will need and it the perfect size for anyone traveling alone or for a couple. The owners are extremely friendly and live on the property if you need anything. The place with comfy and welcoming, I would recommend it to anyone.

Low-key Florida getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 2 bedroom villa. Old Hollywood décor was neat and the unit was comfortable and provided everything we needed. It was a quick walk to the beach, which was sparsely populated and lovely. Quiet area but still close to dining, attractions, etc. Thanks Paul & Elle for providing a great place for our first trip to Cocoa Beach!

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.
