This unique vacation getaway gives you the convenience of all the area attractions and beach nearby, but without the noise and activity of the tourist spots - you'll come home to serenity and calm.

Situated on three acres of mature oak trees, this 2nd story home/apt. has you looking out your window into the treetops. It feels like sleeping in a tree house, but with air-conditioning and all amenities provided. With just under 1000 square feet of living space, you get much more for your dollar than on the beach.

It is furnished with a queen bed and has a full futon in the living area - for up to two couples or a family of four.

Bring your bicycle for great biking and your kayaks or canoe for water exploration. Just down the road is launching in the Pine Island Preservation area - with numerous birds, otters, manatees and more to see. Or, you can make arrangements to use our kayaks, sailboats, Stand-Up Paddleboards or learn to windsurf on the Banana River! Choose our Adventure Package for a full month of unlimited watersports equipment for your use and learn a new sport, too!

If you are looking for a wonderful escape with all the beauty and inviting weather of Florida, but don't want just another tourist resort - this is your place to call 'home'.

Unique Benefits

Room to Roam - great for Biking and long walks. Nature can't be beat with 2 wildlife refuges minutes away - one just down the street.

Area Information

Our "treetop" apt. is located on N. Merritt Island - near Kennedy Space Center. A perfect location for those that want a bit calmer getaway rather than the tourist rush of the beach resorts.
Also just down the road from the entrance to the Space Center - so ideal for those on a temporary work assignment or internship at the Cape.
If you like biking and walking - you'll love the room to roam. We are located just down the road from the Pine Island Conservation area. Also, great for birding and wildlife viewing - as we have our own resident pair of Sand Hill Cranes (with their young each season) as well as a mating pair of Cooper Hawks and many, many egrets, ibis and more. All this space and the beach is only a short drive away.

Owner Info

Susie Dornellas

Susie Dornellas

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We, Tinho and Susie - moved to the Spacecoast in 1984 and have always lived on Merritt Island. We moved from Northern Viriginia to follow our dream of owning a Watersports business and traveled all along the East Coast looking for the perfect destination.
We own Calema Windsurfing & Watersports - located inside Kelly Park - in Merritt Island and offer Instruction, Rentals and a Pro-shop for Windsurfing, Sailing, Kayaking and Stand-up Paddling.
Come and enjoy the beauty of our area from the water!

Why this property? We purchased this home on N. Merritt Island because we fell in love with the huge oak trees and the abundance of wildlife that we saw each time we visited the property.
You have complete privacy as it is the only part of the house that is 2 stories, so the windows look out into the treetops.
Many of our single renters have enjoyed the combination of privacy - being located on 3 acres, but also the security of knowing there is someone just a knock on the door away!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

Is this apartment ideal for children?

A:

Due to the stairs - the apartment is not ideal for small children (under the age of 6 years). It is a one bedroom apartment so children would not have a separate sleeping area.

Q:

Does it have a washer/dryer?

A:

Yes. There is a washer/dryer on an outside porch - just off the entrance to the apartment. It is not coin operated. Its use is included in the rental of the apartment.

Q:

Can I park a boat or motorcycle on the property?

A:

Yes, there is plenty of room to park a boat, bicycle, motorcycle, kayak, canoe, etc. - Just let us know what you'd like to bring and we will be happy to let you know where you can keep it on the property. No problem having a 2nd car, either.
