Wonderful location

September 17, 2015

My wife Cindy and I rented this townhouse for the month of Dec. 2015 and it had everything you could want for a vacation home including two bicycles. You can walk to the beach to swim or watch a launch of a space vehicle or take a short walk io the adult pool or a heated family pool. Furnishings and decorations were comfortable and tastefully executed. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Owner's reply:

Thank You for your kind words. I notice that you are from Vermont, that is where I spend my summers in a vacation home that I have in Chester.

We stayed at this townhome in Oceanwoods for a week and everything was awesome. Completely furnished with all that we needed. Very confortable especially the double sink upstairs bathroom and the beds. The pictures didn't do this place justice , it was great. Very close to the beach and the adult pool was just outside the building. I definitely would recommend this place.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We make every effort to make our vacation home as inviting as possible. There are so many things to do and see in the Cape Canaveral area that you will never be bored.

2015 will be an especially busy year for rocket launches from the Kennedy Space Center. There are at least 24 launches planned this year, all of which can be viewed from the beach in front of the Ocean Woods complex.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How far is it from Orlando and the airport?
A: The Orlando airport is 40 miles away. Orlando city and attractions such as Disney, Universal Studios, and places such as International Drive and the convention center are only an hour away. Rental cars are easily available and inexpensive, and there are regular shuttle buses between Cape Canaveral and the airport.
Q: Can you see rocket launches from the townhouse?
A: Not from the townhouse itself, but you can walk down to the beach and see rocket launches from there. The best rocket launches are at night because you can see the rocket for a long time as it flies up into space.

There are 24 rocket launches scheduled in 2015 from the Kennedy Space Center.
Q: What is a cool nearby activity?
A: Watching the cruise ships leave Port Canaveral. Most evenings, between 4:00 and 7:00 PM you can go to one of the great seafood restaurants in Port Canaveral (less than 5 minutes away) and watch one or more cruise ships leave port for a Caribbean cruise as you have a great dinner of freshly caught seafood. You can also go to nearby Manatee Park and watch the sunset over nearby Merritt Island. If you are lucky you will see manatees and dolphins swimming by. Manatee Park also has a launching area for kayaks and paddle boards so that you can enjoy yourself on the Banana River.
Q: What other activities are there for kids or adults?
A: Besides the usual surfing & swimming, you can go kite boarding, sailboarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, or rent a boat or jet ski. The Kennedy Space Center is always a great place to visit (go early and on a cloudy or even rainy day to avoid the large crowds). For the fisherman there are at least 4 party boats that go out on 1/2 day or all day trip and numerous charter fishing boats for deep sea fishing (Marlin, Tuna, Shark, Barracuda,etc) or back bay fishing in the Banana or Indian River lagoons. For the gambler, Victory Casino cruises go out on 4 hour cruises twice each day.

Shell collecting is not so good on the beaches unless there has been a storm, but in the back bays you can collect numerous exotic shells very easily. If you have a metal detector you can make some interesting finds on the beaches. Miniature golf is within walking distance, and numerous golf courses are within a one hour drive. Of course, all of the Orlando area attractions such as the theme parks, airboat rides, dolphin and manatee cruises, etc. are all within an hours drive of the townhouse.
Q: Which Cruise Lines operate from Port Canaveral?
A: Two of Disney's 4 cruise ships (Dream & Magic) sail from Port Canaveral on 3, 4, or 5 night cruises to the Bahamas.

Carnival Cruise Lines has two beautiful ships homeported here, including the Carnival Dream, the newest and largest Carnival ship sailing to date. Carnival offers 3- and 4-night cruises to the Bahamas and 7-night cruises to the eastern and western Caribbean.

Cruise Terminal 8 at Port Canaveral is the home to Disney Cruise Line. The Magic and the Wonder offer vacationers the incomparable Disney experience on 3-, 4- and 7-night cruises to the Bahamas, the eastern and western Caribbean and Disney's private island getaway - Castaway Cay.

Royal Caribbean International has one of the highest space-per-guest ratios in the cruise market plus state-of-the-art recreational facilities. With the Monarch of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas, RCI offers 3-, 4- and 7-night cruises to the Bahamas, eastern and western Caribbean and private island Coco Cay.

Norwegian Cruise Lines offer 12 different 7 or 14 day cruises aboard the Norwegian Spirit throughout the Eastern and Western Caribbean.

A brand new cruise terminal just opened up in Port Canaveral which is closer to Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach, and is the most modern cruise terminal in the world, getting passengers on and off ships in record time.
Q: What kind of shopping (food and otherwise) is available?
A: There is an excellent health food store only a short drive from the townhouse. Several Publix supermarkets, a Wal-Mart, and an Aldi are all within a 10 to 30 minute drive. Some of the more unusual stores in the area include Ron John's surf shop (open 24 hrs.) and the Dinosaur Store in Cocoa Beach. Old town Cocoa (20 minutes away) has a great collection of boutiques, restaurants, and even a playhouse. A new shopping center recently opened in Viera (about 30 minutes away) with a large selection of shops and restaurants.

For the outlet shopper there are several outlet malls in Orlando, and at least two regular malls with stores such a Bloomingdales and Nordstorms.
