Favorite Restaurant: Top 3 are Rusty's at the Port, Rising Tide, and Nosh.

 

Favorite hidden gem: Jetty Park, I love going there to watch the cruise ships depart! The Disney cruise ships horn plays "When you wish upon a star" as it leaves. It is magical! You can also fish right from the rocks there!

 

What people would be surprised to learn about the Space Coast? The Space coast itself! Our unique retro beach town charm is extremely refreshing and surprising to most out of towners!

 

Describe your perfect day in Cocoa Beach: Waking up to watch the sunrise, getting breakfast at Southern Charm Café, watching the surfers at the Cocoa Beach Pier, lunch at Papa Vito's, afternoon fishing charter out of the port (I am determined to catch a Mahi Mahi!), and ending the day with my family and my dog either grilling at home, or at one of our amazing restaurants in town!

 

What do you love most about working at SICB?: Our small family business mindset is what trickles down to our guests. At the end of the day our family wants your family to have an amazing stay! We provide you with the best accommodations on the space coast so you can enjoy your stay and explore our little slice of heaven!

Favorite Restaurant: The Beachside Cafe - excellent breakfast and lunch spot!

 

Favorite hidden gem: The beautiful intercoastal waterways of Brevard. I would recommend a kayak tour to look for dolphins, manatees, alligators, herons, and all kinds of beautiful, unique wildlife.

 

What people would be surprised to learn about the Space Coast? The resurgence of the Space Program. Being a child of the Space Shuttle era, it is cool to see all these new companies coming and advancing science and space exploration. If you're lucky enough to see a rocket launch on your visit it is quite the experience!

 

Describe your perfect day in Cocoa Beach: My wife Chloe and Scooby our dog would spend the morning on one of our beautiful dog friendly beaches. Then we would walk around downtown Cocoa Beach exploring the shops, bars, and restaurants. Finally we would have dinner at any of the amazing restaurants at Port Canaveral and watch the cruise ships sail out.

 

What do you love most about working at SICB?: My coworkers. From the owners of the company to our cleaning staff, everyone cares deeply about each other and our guests. Our success is derived from the passion each employee brings with them to work.

Favorite Restaurant: 4th Street Fillin Station Gastrobar & Grill! They have delicious food and over 150 craft beers. Fun fact, this gastrobar was originally an old gas station!

 

Favorite hidden gem: The Banana River Lagoon! Kayaking the lagoon is one of my favorite ways to explore the unique wildlife that inhabits Florida's Space Coast. I highly recommend booking a nighttime bioluminescence kayaking tour with Fin Expeditions! It is magical!

 

What people would be surprised to learn about the Space Coast? Florida's Space Coast is one of the largest nesting sites for sea turtles, representing 90% of eggs laid in the US! The three main sea turtles species that come to our beaches are the loggerhead, green and leatherback!

 

Describe your perfect day in Cocoa Beach: Waking up early to get a chai tea latte at Juice N' Java and watching the beautiful sunrise on the beach. Then exploring nature by kayaking the Banana River Lagoon. Getting a delicious lunch and craft beer (or two!) at 4th Street Fillin Station is a must! Then exploring the unique shops in Historic Cocoa Village, followed by a seafood dinner at Florida's Fresh Grill.

Perfect Day in Cocoa Beach? Waking up early and running across the street, to watch the Sunrise and to see the baby sea turtles, make their trek to the ocean, sipping on Mimosas and nibbling on fresh fruit.

Brianne

Partner & Head of Technology

Favorite Restaurant: The Green Room Cafe for a fresh & healthy meal

 

Favorite Hidden Gem: Wicked Pineapple for their acai bowls.

 

What would people be surprised to hear about the Space Coast: Last year NASA's Kennedy Space Center supported a record number of launches from the Space Coast. We are excited to see if they can make history and do it again this year with a record number of launches! The launches can be viewed from the comfort of many of our oceanfront patios, or from the Chateau by the Sea rooftop deck. It's one of the largest in the area and is exclusive to guests staying there!

 

What do you love most about working at SICB?: I love hearing about our guests' stay with us! It's very rewarding getting a 5 star review from a happy guest that had an amazing experience, and wants to come back to stay with us again!

 

Describe your perfect day in Cocoa Beach: I love starting the day with a coffee at Juice & Java, then enjoy hanging by the pool with my family. In the afternoon we love to find a local patio to eat outdoors, like 4th Street Fillin Station, where I can try an awesome local beer. We love ending the day with a walk on the beach to catch the beautiful sunset!

Dean

Partner & Head of Owner Services

Favorite Restaurant: There are so many great ones in the area! For a special date night, I would recommend the Fat Snook.

 

Favorite Hidden Gem: Cafe Surfinista for their great local surf vibe, coffee and acai bowls.

 

What people would be surprised to hear about the Space Coast: I'd say the most common surprises I hear from our guests is how relaxed and charming Cocoa Beach is, and how many things there are for families to do beyond enjoying the beach (things like bioluminescence tours, fishing, space camp, aerial adventure, go karting, etc.)

 

What do you love most about working at SICB?: It's the fun, energetic, family atmosphere we all bring working with each other, helping our guests, or enjoying our get-togethers outside of work! It's very difficult to describe but for those who've become part of a small family company, passionate about the mission, it'll be easy to relate!
