South End Serenity in Cocoa Beach

vacation rental description

This is a clean and cozy one bedroom unit in a small, low key, 6 unit oceanfront complex. The 600 s.f. unit itself is detached from the rest of the complex--similar to a "carriage house"--and has a lovely courtyard garden entrance (see photo 6).  Just a few (I counted 8) steps out the beach-level front door will afford a view of the ocean from a quiet spot next to the unit (see photo 5), and a few more steps through the lush lawn will have your toes in the sand. 

We are at the south end of Cocoa Beach--just north of the Air Force base.  This makes for uncrowded, beautiful beaches and a relaxing, laid back atmosphere.  (Our cover photo was taken just behind our complex looking south.) Take a sunrise stroll along the miles-long undeveloped beach of Patrick Air Force Base, which begins just a few doors  to our south, or paddle out into the often excellent surf right out our back door.  Or try your luck fishing for pompano or perch.  There are surfboard and kayak rentals just across the street, and we have a 9' Doyle Softboard--perfect for learning--available for use.

If you are looking for a quiet time away from it all, and if your idea of "night life" involves sitting on the beach, listening to the roar of surf and marveling at the starry heavens above, this is your place, and at an affordable rate!

This is a non-smoking unit.  Please refrain from smoking inside.

traveler reviews for this cocoa beach condo rental

Home away from home

Review submitted: July 18, 2013   Date of arrival: June 29, 2013

This was the best holiday we ever had. The house is perfectly located with every convenience you could ask for. We can recommend this house with all of our heart. We were visiting from Ireland and can truly say after years of traveling around the world that this was the best location we ever stayed. It is clean, modern and welcoming and had everything we needed. The shared information from other guests and recipes were a great touch. Coleman was so welcoming and the information he gave about the area was fantastic. There were sea turtles laying eggs in the night and he told us how to see this without disturbing them. We swam with manatees in the manatee park. We saw dolphins. There is so much to see and do that after 2.5 weeks we had only scratched the surface.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: I so appreciate this wonderful review!

I'm glad you found the unit to be welcoming and comfortable. We just fell in love with the place--and the location--the first time we saw it, and family, friends and guests have all seem to share that sentiment.

It sounds as though you really made the most of your time in Cocoa Beach. It's always a treat to witness the turtles nesting and, yes indeed, there are ways of observing without disturbing. I'm glad you were so fortunate! And 'swimming with manatees'??? Wonderful!!!

Thank you for this kind review as well as your very thoughtful consideration in caring for our place during your stay. We hope to see you again soon.

So Sad to leave. Great Condo and Awesome Location

Review submitted: July 3, 2013   Date of arrival: June 23, 2013

I can not thank you enough for sharing your beautiful condo with us. The pictures don't do this wonderful place justice. My family and I were so sad to leave. We even had the pleasure of seeing sea turtles laying their eggs. One turtle laid her eggs right at the end of the walkway. Everything was perfect and very clean.The garden in the walkway made us feel like we were truly on an island.

Coleman, the gentleman that manages the condo is so sweet. I had a great time talking with him and he even showed me some great places to walk to and things to do. He was so helpful and made checking in and out very easy.

We can't wait until next year to come back again. I have told all my friends about this condo and passed out your name and email to several people.

This was an awesome find and we were blessed to be able to stay here.
Thank you to both you and Coleman

Owners response: Well, this review really made my day! :-)

I am so glad that your family was fortunate enough to witness the turtle activity! I think you were there at the peak of the season. I am told that the stretch of beach along the Space Coast is one of the most active turtle nesting areas on the East Coast.

We'll certainly be looking forward to your next stay!

Perfect! Perfect! PERFECT!

Review submitted: May 9, 2013   Date of arrival: April 26, 2013

You've heard the phrase 'location, location, location'? Well, this condo has all three-a unique carriage house-type living space, in a quiet section of southern Cocoa Beach, that is just steps away from a peaceful uncrowded beach. The accommodations within this condo are very appealing and comfortable. Mark is committed to making your visit the best vacation possible and his contact person was very helpful. We are definitely planning a return trip in 2014.

Recommended for: pet-friendly, sight seeing

Owners response: It is truly gratifying to read a review such as this one. Our unit--and its "twin" (owned by another resident of the complex)--certainly is unique for its "stand alone" feel and beach-level courtyard entrance. And I see that our guest also appreciated the quietness of our stretch of beach.

But I particularly appreciate the mention of our "contact person." I (Mark) actually live in the Atlanta area, but a long-time friend, surfing buddy and former neighbor, who lives just a few doors up the beach, has been doing a splendid job of preparing the unit, greeting guests, answering questions, etc. It is great to have someone with a great work ethic and a personal concern taking care of such things, and I'm glad that our guests notice the difference it makes. They find it exceptionally clean and inviting, and know that there is someone nearby happy to help should any problems arise.
