Coastal, cozy & charming, this peaceful barrier island home built during the Mercury space program is a 2 block stroll to the beach. Enjoy ocean sunrises & screened porch nights listening to rustling palms & full moon surf. Clean bedroom & hall bathroom are all yours, share the rest of the house with a middle-aged world-traveling marine biologist, friendly dog & cat. Ideal for singles, couples, military & business travelers. Comfy living room has reading nook, cold AC, gas fireplace, wi-fi & tv.

The space

Your room has a comfy queen size bed with a variety of pillows for every comfort level, a dresser, closet, bed side table, chair, bench and bookcase. Your private bathroom is in the hall and contains toiletries, bath tissue, bath rug and towels.

Guest access

Other than the master bedroom and office, the entire house is available for use. Upon arrival you will be given access to the front door so you may come and go as you please.

I have beach cruiser bikes, beach chairs and beach towels you may borrow.

Toiletries are provided and I am happy to do a load of laundry for you, just ask.

A shelf in the fridge can be made available for you to store food. You are welcome to use the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself and put rinsed off plates and utensils in the dishwasher.

Breakfast is typically not served but coffee, tea and fruit are always available that you are welcome to help yourself to. Special arrangements can be accommodated upon request, such as breakfast or other options like an air mattress for additional guests, coffee in your room, etc. If you have a question or special request prior to booking, just ask!

Interaction with guests

I'm happy to help if you need anything during your stay and can recommend wildlife viewing options, identify the seashells you find, share information about the area, suggest fun activities, shopping and dining options. Otherwise, I respect your privacy and will provide help or chat if you like.

My work schedule is different from day to day - sometimes working in the home office, other times off for a week, and other times traveling for work. I wake early to walk the dog and will be coming and going throughout the day. I go to bed around 10:00 - 11:00 but you are welcome to stay up for quiet enjoyment of the porch, stargazing at the beach or watching TV in the living room. Instead of cable, the TV is set up with SlingTV, HBO &/or Netflix, and local channels.

Other things to note

Sea turtles: May - Oct is nesting season. Go on a guided turtle walk to watch egg laying!

Whales: Dec - April is North Atlantic right whale calving migration. The rarest large whales in U.S. waters, be a citizen scientist and watch for these whales from the beach. You may see an occasional humpback too.

Manatees: Fall and winter - The house is equal walking distance between the beach and a canal off the banana river where you can watch manatees during cold weather.

Dolphins: Can be seen almost any time and often on morning beach walks.

There are many activities in the area such as farmers markets, art festivals, surfing, kayaking, kite-surfing, yoga, etc.

Taylor's Saltwater Cottage in Satellite Beach was immaculate, cozy and well located. We were minutes from beautiful beaches, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, Melbourne etc. as well as several yummy eateries. Taylor is an exceptional host providing lovely coffees, fruit, water and snacks. She is also a marine biologist who was happy to share her vast knowledge of our oceans. We can highly recommend spending time at Saltwater Cottage!
