Nearby Merritt Island has a nice Mall with movie theaters and there are many additional restaurants. Ocean kayaking or on the more tranquil Banana River is also a fun opportunity.

The beach is quiet near the condo but if you like a little more action the pier and some ocean front bars are nearby for your entertainment. If this unit is booked or you prefer ocean front, give me a call.

Area Information
Cocoa Beach is one of the closest beaches to Orlando and is only minutes from Kennedy Space center. There are many restaurants in the area, some of our favorites are the Lobster Shanty in South Cocoa Beach, Sunset Grill on 528 just before you get on the causeway, the Atlantic Ocean Grill on the Pier and Grills at the port. My son loves the bread pudding at Fishlips, also at the port. We also enjoy a short walk the the local park or to the fitness center across the street. But being right on the beach so that we can go out for an early morning walk and watch the sunrise as we walk along the quiet beach is our very most favorite thing about our vacations to Cocoa Beach. Lori Wilson Park is just about a hundred yards up the beach and it is a great place for a picnic or a walk through the 'jungle'.

Wonderful beachfront condo!

December 2, 2012

Beautiful condo in a great location! This was our first visit to Cocoa Beach and felt very welcomed in this rental. The proximity to the beach itself was perfect. Everything was very clean and tidy. Thank you very much for making our first visit to FL a memorable one. We hope to visit again!

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for your kind review, we make this our home away from home so we try to keep it in great shape for our comfort as well as yours. I noticed your wedding picture, was this your honeymoon. If I would have known I would have sent a bottle of Champagne. We would love to have you as our guests in the future. Thanks for spending time with us in wonderful Cocoa Beach.

We were very happy with our choice to use a condo rental over a hotel. The unit was clean, nicely decorated and offered some good amenities. We appreciated the overall layout and size of the unit, it worked well for a family with teenagers. Having a washer/dryer, beach chairs and towels and a kitchen made our stay more enjoyable. We most enjoyed our Kayaking tour through the Cocoa Beach Thousand Islands, and the $50 a week surfboard rental from Ron Jon.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Owner Response: Thank you for visiting our Florida home. A condo offers many advantages over a hotel. The unit is almost 1300 square feet with two baths and a full modern kitchen, things you will not find in a hotel room. We love Thousand Islands as well and visit the park on Ramp Road almost every time we are in Cocoa Beach.

We would welcome you back anytime; you were great guests.

Review Submitted July 4, 2012 Date of Stay May 23, 2012 The condo was clean and the furnishings very comfortable as well as attractive. Photos reflected exactly what condo looked like. We especially enjoyed nearness to the pool and the third floor convenience. TV in living room was great as was wi-fi. Overall, condo was very comfortable and close to the ports (if you are cruising), golf courses and Space Center. Publix and Walmart close by. Owner was response and available for questions. Would recommend this condo and would like to make it part of our annual trip. Rating: 5 out of 5

Owner Response: Thank you for your kind review. I always enjoyed talking to you and am looking forward to hearing for you next year. I hope you enjoyed your trip on the auto train, if I was nearer to D.C. I would try it sometime.

Review Submitted May 17, 2012 Date of Stay May 3, 2012 We stayed at the condo in May 2012. Had a very nice time and enjoyed the unit and area immensely. We found the condo to be very nicely furnished and well maintained. The furniture was very nice and we found everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The owners were very easy to work with an we appreciated their follow-up call to see how our stay was going and to recommend places to eat in the area of which we ate at the Atlantic Seafood Grill on the Cocoa Beach Pier and at Grills at Port Canaveral. The pool was very nice, clean and as a whole, the whole condo complex was very clean and I would visit again any time I have the chance to do so. I had not been to Cocoa Beach since 1995 and it was very nice to see that so much of the beach in this area is well preserved and still has dunes which were so pretty. Good view of the ocean too from the unit. Thanks again to the owners for an enjoyable stay. Rating: 5 out of 5

Owner Response: You are very welcome. You were the first person to stay in my unit after I started handling the bookings myself so I was happy to hear that you had a good stay. We worked hard to make the unit very comfortable for our guests and have made a few more improvments since your visit so I encourage you to come back again next year.
