This is the perfect location for relaxing—and only an hour from Orlando and 15-20 minutes to Cocoa Beach. The beach is right outside your door and less crowded (and cheaper) than Cocoa Beach. The oceanfront location couldn’t be better. We enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning from the condo and resting on the private balcony. Amazing view to watch the ocean. Lots of bird watching and shells galore on the beach, too. Patrick Air Force Base is nearby and the Air Force Thunderbirds flew over several times one day while practicing for their upcoming shows. However, the condo is so well sound proofed that I think we would have missed that if we hadn’t been outside. The kitchen was clean and well equipped and Publix, Winn Dixie and Walmart are all very close for stocking up on supplies. The condo has boogie boards, sand chairs, umbrellas and even sand toys for the kids. The pool was spotless and the perfect temperature for refreshing after a hot day in the Florida sun. The washer and dryer were an extra benefit and they are located in a separate utility room inside the unit so you don’t have the noise of running washer/dryer near your bedroom when you’re trying to sleep.
We enjoyed dining out at Jack Baker’s Lobster Shanty, Neptune Bar & Grill, Bizzarro Pizza & Pasta, and Ichabod’s Bar & Grille. Be sure to treat yourself to ice cream at the Surfin’ Turtle in Satellite Beach. They have a place for kids to play and hang out, including big checkerboards and a selection of board games as well as great information on sea turtles.
Even though we booked on rather short notice, Drew made the rental experience easy and responded quickly by email. We totally enjoyed our week and hope to make it back in the future. When we do, I'll definitely be contacting Drew to stay in this unit again.
