Short Term Rentals AirBnB Cape Canaveral

Use the condo when you want. Rent it out when you want.

If you are doing your research to find the best area to buy property for a vacation rental or AirBnB, I am certain Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral come up often. We are a destination for winter residents from January through April. We are a destination for spring breakers March through May. Summer trips to Disney and attractions in Orlando bring people to the closest beach to Orlando (Cape Canaveral & Cocoa Beach). We have Kennedy Space Center with the regular rocket launches throughout the year thanks to NASA, SpaceX, and ULA (and soon to be Blue Origin). Plus we are surrounded by water that attracts people from around the world to our area to surf, fish, kayak, and photograph our amazing waterways and wildlife. 

We have hundreds of condominium complexes in Brevard County and these are my favorite 3 to use for an AirBnB, VRBO, or short term rental because of their 1 week minimum rental restrictions.

Polk Avenue is located between Cape Winds and Canaveral Towers. This beach access point has one of the city of Cape Canaveral Mobi Mat beach access points. One of three in Cape Canaveral, the Mobi Mats make getting on the beach easier if you have mobility issues. Read more about them on their site

There are a dozen or more condos in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral that allow a one week minimum rental that could be good options too. Near the Cocoa Beach Pier, there are at least 4 oceanfront condominiums within a couple blocks that are in amazing locations because you are near the Pier, near a few dozen restaurants & bars, Publix, and the ABC. I didn’t include them because they all have a first right of refusal in their condo docs and bylaws. This is great if you are already an owner, but it is an added layer of stress & worry if you are the one buying the condo. There are some affordable one bedroom condos that are not on the beach but near the beach in Avon by the Sea and the Presidents row of Cape Canaveral. These may or may not have the first right of refusal.

The main reason why I included these 3 condos in this post is because of their location. Besides being oceanfront, they are all on the north end of town. This makes the commute to and from the Orlando Airport (MCO) a lot easier. You are also that much closer to Disney and the Orlando attractions. You are also very close to Port Canaveral if they are also planning a cruise while in town. If you would like to know what is on the market or prices of any of the 1 week minimum condos, I would love to help you. Call me, text me, or comment below; I am here to help!
