The Owner purchased this condo in 2001
My parents migrated here after their retirement. We visited them & vacationed here as often as we could. We fell in love with what many locals call the 'undiscovered affordable Florida' Having been Real Estate Brokers most of our lives we often went to open houses at beach properties. We felt this condo with its location in the center of Cocoa Beach, had great potential. We thought that some day the Cocoa Beach area, Cape Canaveral, the numerous cruise ships and proximity to Orlando attractions would make this a major vacation/tourist destination; As it has!
The place is a paradise!... It's the best of 2 worlds; you can just lay back, relax on the beach or partake in the many activities in the area around you: The Pier with its shops,bars and restaurants, surfers, fishing and volley ball games, or the Port with cruise boats and deep sea fishing, the unique eco life of the Banana River, Canaveral National Sea Shore, Cocoa village with its old Florida feel & shops & great restaurants or any of the many Orlando attractions that are less that an hour away!
The following hand printed note was found in the 2nd ocean view bedroom ,in the night stand. We left it in the drawer, but wanted to share it. It is from a 9 year old. It reads as follows: "June 01-07, this condo is Awesome! I hope that the person reading this, takes good care of it and that enjoy this condo as much, as i did. have a safe trip home. Allexandria J. Jerseyville,Ill."
We have stayed in this condo before but forgot how wonderful it is. From the moment we entered the condo, it felt like home. It has all of the amenities of a hotel but with the comforts of home. When we cooked in, everything we needed was here. The furnishings are well kept and comfortable. The balcony has an awesome view and is perfect for coffee in the morning, happy hour in the afternoon or a drink in the evening. The condo has the look and feel of owners who care about their tenants. They see to your every need and want to insure a perfect stay! The membership at the gym was added since the last time and we used it. And a big thank you for the grapefruit and oranges that were left for us as a welcoming gift. I love Cocoa Beach and this condo! I will be back hopefully this summer!
My family came in from Arizona, 3 adults with 2 teenagers. This place was the ultimate vacation spot for all of us. The guys played golf at nearby courses. And us girls hung out at the beach. A lot! The condo and its amenities are to numerous to count. But they were very impressionable. Especially the wrap around porch looking out at the ocean. Boy did we all get spoiled with that view.
There are so many places to go within walking distance. Ron Jons is near and the kids loved that. Also, Orlando is a hop skip and jump away. We took a day trip to Sea World and it was great.
There is nothing you can want in this place. It had everything. Even great neighbors. :O) I highly recommend this condo to any family or anyone who wants nothing more than to rest and really enjoy all this place has to offer. I know my mom, sister and I are talking about returning next year.
Stayed with our 3 kids for 10 days, great location and the owners were great to deal with. The place was just as described and had all we needed. Amenities are provided for (beach chairs, umbrella, towels, boogie boards) and a very comfortable bed. We loved the deck the most (coffee in the am and drinks at night).
Thanks Pam and Mark you have a great place.
This is a clean 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo. It is an older unit that was remodeled at some point. We enjoyed our stay. It was roomy and the owners have kept it up nicely. We came here for the long course aquatic center so our girls could do a private swim camp. The local aquatic center isn't far from this condo if you are into lap swimming. In addition, you are 1 hour from Orlando and about 20 mins from Kennedy Space Center. All in all, a nice condo in a very quiet area. I would recommend this for a family wanting a quiet place outside places like Destin and Panama City. Lots of hidden restaurants that are excellent the owners suggested in their concierge book.
You can't go wrong with this rental. You cannot think of something you may need that is not here waiting for you. Well furnished, and was plenty of room for seven of us. I will definitely be back with my family!
My family spent excellent time at this place but it has a couple of caveats.
One is the sharp objects (perhaps nails) in the carpet everywhere it meets the tile floor. The temporary fix is to put the mats over those paces.
The second is very sad as our 6 y.o. daughter forgot her Tiffany bracelet in her bedroom but the management told us the cleaner did not find anything although I am positive I saw it in that room last time.
So if you accidentally leave behind any valuables don't hope to get anything back.
This beach front condo is conveniently located 10 minutes from the Port Canaveral cruises, gambling, and deep sea fishing ships, 20 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center, 45 minutes due east of Orlando Airport, and less then an hour from the Orlando theme parks (Universal Studios, Sea World, Disney World...). This Space Coast location is one of the few places on Florida's coast's where you can stay in beach-front accommodations and not have the traffic congestion and noise that accompanies many Florida locations. The Cape Beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida plus world famous surfing, the Pier and Ron Jon's with the excellent views of the cruise ships as they leave Port Canaveral and of the shuttle and rocket launches from the Kennedy Space Center. A Unique Eco life of the Banana, with some one-of a kind species is right next door!
