Harbor Club is a new luxury condo building with only 20 units. It is located in downtown Cocoa Beach, directly on the Banana River and only one-half mile from the ocean and the world-famous Ron Jon surf shop. If you enjoy watching dolphins and manatees, they can be seen right from our balcony. Our apartment is located on the second floor and can be accessed by elevator or by an easy walk up from the two-car indoor garage. The apartment is an end unit with extra windows and light, and has an open balcony overlooking the Banana River. The balcony faces South and South-East, allowing you to enjoy morning coffee while seeing the sun rise.
Over 20 bars and restaurants are within a half mile walk. It consists of 2,100 sq ft with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The living room has a large 'L shaped' sofa with a 50' HD flat-screen TV. The dining room table seats 6, but extra chairs will be available. The kitchen has four counter stools and is fully equipped with the household items needed for your vacation.
The master bedroom suite has a sliding glass door to the balcony and is furnished with a king-size bed, a wall-mounted flat-screen TV, a dresser, a large walk-in closet and a master bath with shower, jacuzzi and double sinks, and even a wall-mounted TV. One guestroom has an en-suite bath with shower and tub and has twin beds with a dresser and a large closet. The second guest bedroom has a queen bed with a dresser and a smaller closet. A bath with shower is located just outside the bedroom door. Both guestrooms have wall-mounted flat-screen TVs too.
A full-size washer and dryer are located just off the kitchen.
The underground garage of Harbor Club has two parking spots for exclusive use by the owner/tenants of the condo. There is a small health club with five workout machines and a TV overlooking the river. There are also a large unheated pool, an outdoor jacuzzi, and a sauna for you to enjoy.

You will not get bored during your stay at Harbor Club!
George owned a ski condo in Breckenridge, Colorado, since 1995 and enjoyed many great years of skiing and rentals. In 2012 we decided to trade it for a condo in Florida. George was born in Bronxville, NY, and worked for Chrysler Corporation, for almost 30 years, spending 10 years overseas. Marion was born in Holland. Apart from her mother tongue and English of course, she also speaks German and French. We met in Belgium, got married in Germany, and lived in Egypt before our retirement in 2006. Now we divide our time between a home in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, and Florida. Our interests include running, skiing, hiking, walking, golf, biking, and traveling.
We chose this property because George has vacationed in the area for over 25 years. George's dad rented property in Cocoa Beach and also owned a condo in Satellite Beach. George's brother, sister and niece also live in Brevard County. Spending summers in the quiet woods of the Adirondack Mountains makes this lively part of Florida a perfect alternative for the winter months.
We especially like Harbor Club because of the direct waterfront view and the opportunity to walk to many local restaurants, stores and attractions. Being on the river front affords great views of passing manatees and dolphins - we keep binoculars in the condo, so you will not miss any of the wildlife action!
Being right on the Banana River allows for watching dolphins and manatees right out of the condo window. There is a local tour boat next door that gives eco tours of the Banana River. The Kennedy Space Center is 21 miles away and Disney is 66 miles away. Of course the beach is only one half mile from the condo.
