We ended up staying in old Florida on our business trip & it was nostalgically wonderful. Our visit to the Aloha was the second half of our trip heading home.
It's a charming place situated right across the street from the beach & a very easy walk across & down a short boardwalk. The room was clean & cozy & had everything you would need. The owner & the manager were extremely accommodating & so nice. There's a restaurant, as well as a park, that is in short walking distance. I recommend going to the park as the sun is setting to catch the manatees feeding & a beautiful end to the day.

The Aloha is located within a mile of the north gate of the Canaveral National Seashore at historic Bethune Beach. With over six miles of undeveloped natural shoreline at the National Seashore, you can easily find a private spot to fish, surf, take great photographs, watch a rocket launch or simply relax in the sun. Steps away is the inviting Volusia County Beach Park which has a children's play area, tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts.The National Seashore, which features a 19th century settlement Eldora, shell turtlemounds and natural Apollo Beach, is also the home to bald eagles, manatees, alligators, pelicans and exotic shore birds. Stroll along the pristine beach, a refuge for endangered sea turtles. If you're in the mood for a hike, you can walk to within sight of the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center. Eat at delightful JB's Fish Camp on the banks of Shipping Creek for fine food and refreshments, watch the sunset from their waterfront wrap around deck. Come relax and enjoy! ... more less
