SolRisa Inn Bed and Breakfast

Florida Bed and Breakfast Inns is proud to introduce SolRisa Inn Bed and Breakfast in Cocoa Beach, Florida as a new member inn.

SolRisa means laughing sun, named for its spectacular sunrise views.  Solrisa Inn Bed and Breakfast is Cocoa’s newest inn, a classic turn-of-the-century Florida home that has overlooked the Indian River for 120 years.   It is a completely rebuilt 1914 home opened as a B & B in 2013, sitting on a small bluff of the Indian River. Three unique suites grace the main inn with a private deck or porch, river views, and en suite baths. In the 1903 cottage you can relax to river views and breezes, osprey and owls from the private, screened cottage porch

The swim-in-place pool with pagoda invites water aerobics, a challenging swim, or just holding on to float on the current.  Next to the pool, the fireplace terrace offers cozy seating with river views. Small garden and seating areas dot the property.

Owned by a dietitian and retired businessman, breakfast at SolRisa is both good, and good for you.  A full hot breakfast can be enjoyed in the dining room, in room, or one of the decks, porches or terraces.  Dockside dinners can be arranged; and the full moon rising over the river makes a romantic backdrop. SolRisa’s food is both delicious and nutritious; organic and local products are used as much as possible.

They strive to provide relaxation and rejuvenation at every SolRisa visit. To enjoy a bit more pampering, They offer massage, facials, manicures and pedicures, aromatherapy and more through outstanding and fully licensed partners.

SolRisa Inn partners with the Good Nutrition Dietitian to offer occasional “Hit Restart” retreats. Have you ever wanted to step off the wheel, stop to catch a breath and reorganize, and start on a healthy path? “Restart” retreats target the health-threatening “big three”: poor diet, stress and inactivity. Retreats immerse guests in an experiential journey to de-stress, enjoy delicious and healthy nutrition, and to move the body. There is simply no better way to begin anew; to commit to a healthy you!

Located on the Indian River and walking distance to Historic Cocoa Village, within 10 miles of beaches and Canaveral Cruise terminals, and 35 miles to Orlando airport; SolRisa is within easy reach of all of central Florida and Space Coast attractions.

SolRisa is maintained with natural botanical products as much as possible, with signature soap and body lotion specially hand-crafted  from the purest oils and products by Nature’s Spirit. The grounds are maintained with organic products that will not harm you, or the river.

SolRisa can arrange wellness retreats, writer, photographer and artist seminars and much more for small groups of guests.  Glimpses of gardens tucked amid palms. Indian River breezes cool decks and porches. Manatee faces and porpoise tails. Squirrel chatter amid old oaks. Osprey and owl. Enjoy a sunrise stretch or a moonlight meditation on our dock.  The inn is simply elegant, positively serene.

Cocoa Village, Cocoa, Florida

Picturesque Cocoa Village.

Historic Cocoa Village sits on the Indian River, across the river from the more well known Cocoa Beach. The village is a destination unto itself. Whether you are staying at a Cocoa Beach Florida Bed and Breakfast, an Orlando Florida Bed and Breakfast, or simply traveling along the east coast of Florida, consider spending and afternoon and evening in Cocoa Village.

It isn’t large, but Cocoa Village is home to more than 50 boutiques and shops. Most are located along Brevard Avenue and Harrison Street, so it’s easy to explore them all on foot. In addition to clothing shops and gift/souvenir boutiques, there are a number of respectable antique shops and art galleries.

BadBirds Gallery displays the work of several contemporary local artists and artisans, as well as antique art. Browse Miss Bailey’s Antiques, Stone Street Antiques, and the unique Horse Feathers Antiques. Antiques & Collectibles Too has a little of everything, as does the Cocoa Antique Mall. All these shops are close to the Riverfront Park, a good spot to sit in the shade when you need to rest.

Cocoa Village is also home to many restaurants, both fine-dining and casual. You can enjoy a piece of pizza and homemade ice-cream in your shorts, or dress up and dine in elegance.

  • Café Margaux features creative French and European Cuisine.
  • Murdock’s Bistro and Char Bar has tasty BBQ pork and live music several nights a week.
  • Cara Mia offers fresh Italian food and lovely views of the Indian River.
  • Brasas Grill is a Brazilian Steak-House Churascaria with hearty meats and flavorful sides.
  • Black Tulip is a wonderful spot for a romantic evening.

Cocoa Village is worth a look, so much so that it may be worth lodging in a nearby Florida Bed and Breakfast so you can explore it at your leisure.
