The rental calendar is up-to-date. PLEASE READ: a minimum stay of 7 nights is required and a minimum of 10 days prior to the arrival date is required for Homeowner's Association processing time and approval. Also: we are not allowed to have dogs over 40 pounds (much to our disappointment).

From the moment the elevator door opens in your private foyer, you will say 'WOW'! This is NOT your typical beach rental. Our home was professionally decorated from the floors to the ceilings. You will encounter beautiful fixtures -- from the lighting to the Calphalon cookware in the kitchen, you will feel at home immediately! There are three sitting areas: the living rm, the family room and the balcony. Four places to eat: the breakfast nook, barstools at the kitchen counter, balcony and the dining room. This home is fully furnished: a full-size refrigerator/freezer, 5 burner flat stovetop, wall-mounted convection oven & microwave. The beach is a 1-minute walk. A marvelous view of the launching of the space shuttle! The condo only has 11 units and is very quiet & private.

Rates include: Electric, cable, internet (Wi-Fi), water, home phone (plus US long-distance).

Activities: Orlando is approximately 50 minutes by car.

Optional: Have a pet? pets must not exceed two dogs and total weight must be under 40 pounds. Sorry, owner is allergic to cats.

Need a housekeeper?

For example of some not so exceptional behavior: children's hands or feet to be on walls, shoes not to be worn in the home or to have glasses and dishes on furniture without a coaster/placemat. Thank you for your understanding!

Why Debra or Alex Monteith chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We fell in love with this home. Where else could we buy a new 3,000 square feet on the ocean with quality fixtures and upgrades? Our condo is located in Avon by the Sea in Cocoa Beach. Regulations state condos cannot be higher than 5 stories. Ocean Club is a quaint, quiet and unique property with its own pool overlooking the ocean.

What makes this condo unique

Beautifully and professionally decorated with no expense spared.

Fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2.5 baths. Many former guests tell us our home is the nicest they've ever stayed!

Our home is sparking clean - from the baseboards to the ceilings.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can not even begin to describe how wonderful this condo is. The pictures really do not do it justice. We travelled with 5 adults and 3 children 3, 9 and 10 and had more than enough room that we were not on top of each other all the time. The ocean view is absolutely gorgous and the balcony is great with a large table and 2 recliner chairs. We were able to eat meals easily on the balcony which was wonderful. The bedrooms and closet space is spacious. The owners were wonderful and responsive during booking and throughout our stay and Stacey was wonderful and always responded quickly, although there were not really any issues that needed addressed. The units are very secure which is a plus and quiet. The beach was also quiet which is something we enjoyed. I would highly recommend this condo. I have stayed in much more expensive places that do not even compare to this condo in every way.

The Best Condo Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is just perfect. It is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is accommodated for all kinds of cooking. The beach is only a minute away and there is a wonderful ocean view from the balcony which is also nicely furnished with a high table that accommodates 8 and two most delightful recliner lounge chairs. The pool is also very nice, clean and set up with comfortable lounge chairs and even a very nice bathroom,. The two and a half baths are very nicely appointed and the shower in the master bath (which also has a large tub) is a wonderful experience.

You will also find the owners the best. They are helpful with everything. This is also a relatively small condo building with only 10 condos and the neighbors are very friendly as well as quiet and respectful.

You will not find a better place for a vacation! We have stayed there twice now and have already booked for 2017.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We are from New Jersey and just returned from our great vacation at this beautiful condo. Debra and Alex were very accommodating and informative. The condo was absolutely beautiful and had everything we wanted from small appliances to beach equipment. We found it very relaxing (especially with the view of the ocean with the cruise ships going by). Our dog loved it too ..... he was always on the deck sleeping.

The location is ideal ..... it is 15 minutes from Cape Canaveral (we did go on a 3 day cruise while we were there); an hour from Disney and very close to Old Cocoa (we went there several times). We would highly recommended it to anyone who wants to vacation in a beautiful condo. All the people who live in the building were very friendly and helpful. My grandchildren (ages 10 and 12) from Vermont came for a few days and also loved the condo. I would be careful with children under the age of 8 ...... they have some antiques and priceless decorations.

Awesome Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We're from Minnesota and we vacation in Florida once or twice a year, and we definitely plan on renting this condo again. We've stayed up and down the gulf coast and Atlantic coast over the last 20 years and this is one of the best all-around places we've rented - by far the most convenient and practical. We tend to stay in the med-high priced rentals with ocean views that are on, or very near, the beach. I chose this location because it was just the right walking distance to the Pier. Most days we had coffee and then walked to the pier for breakfast. . We invited another couple to join us for 4 days and they said it was the nicest place they had ever stayed.

Some things that stand out:

>Spacious kitchen, very well equipped with appliances, dishes, utensils. Best we've ever seen by far.

>Icemaker fridge with filtered water - cuts down on bottled water

>Lots of space

>Patio is exceptional, the most usable we've ever had - felt like part of the living room..

>Huge windows, lots of light, amazing views

>Well lit enclosed parking, 2 assigned spaces, about 15 steps from the elevator.

>Full-size front-load washer and dryer

>Very nice extra bedrooms for guests

>The beach was perfect, not crowded, not deserted.

>No need to buy chairs or beach stuff. There were 2 boogie boards that I had tried for the first time and it was amazing. The water was really cold when we first went in but it was very comfortable after a minute or two.

Things I would change(?)

We'd prefer a king bed in the master.

Rinsing our feet was a hassle because you have to go into a locked pool area for the foot-wash. The building should install something along the walkway to the beach.

Amazing view from Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was top notch. The condo is beautifully furnished and ready to go. I would be careful if you are traveling with children because it is not very child friendly establishment.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Alex and Debra's condo is probably the nicest condo we have ever rented. I am truly a "clean freak" and spoke to Alex prior to our arrival about making sure the condo was clean. He assured me that it would be spotless. When we arrived we were greeted by Stacy who took us for a walk through to ensure that we were pleased with the condo. The place is beautiful!!! It is truly twice as big as you think (with the photos). The condo was totally equipped with everything you may need. We stayed for a month and would not hesitate to return again.
