activities and attractions in Cocoa Beach Atlantic Coast Central

We love the spacious interior, the large pool and the hot tub. The third floor location is high enough but still makes a quick escape to the beach easy without having to use the elevator.  We also enjoy a short walk the the local park or to the fitness center across the street.  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'.  The Orlando attractions are an hour away and the Kennedy Space Center is only about 20 minutes away.  The newly renovated Cocoa Expo Sports Center is only 14 miles from us.

traveler reviews for this cocoa beach condo rental

Beautiful place

Review submitted: February 24, 2014   Date of arrival: February 1, 2014

I wish I could give this home a bad review so that it would be available whenever we wanted to return. To be honest, it is the 8th VRBO home we have rented in Florida and the only one that we truly did not want to leave. The beach is perfect. Hard packed sand that is easy to walk on, slowly sloped toward the ocean so that the waves are perfect for boogie boards and little kids. It is a 2.5 mile walk along the beach to the Cocoa Beach Pier, which we walked every day.
The Condo is perfectly arranged to maximize it's space. The 2 bedrooms are separated by the baths, big closet, and laundry room; which afford lots of privacy. It is obvious that the owners spend a great deal of time there. It is very homey and not as bland as many places we have stayed. It really felt like "home". There were even some spices and commonly used pantry items in the pantry. The kitchen is very well equipped compared to others we have rented. There was even a crock pot! There were plenty of towels (even beach ones) and a couple of beach chairs.
The owner was exceptionally easy to work with and answered any and all emails within hours of my contacting him.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We feel the same way. I used to be ready to come home after three or four days of vacation but now, as you said we hate to leave and actually on the trip home, I am counting the days in my head to determine how long it will be until we can come back. I keep counting until I am able to come back to wonderful Sandcastles and today, I can say 30. Glad you had a wonderful vacation and hope to hear from you again in the near future for another great vacation. The entire month of May is still available.

Family with young kids

Review submitted: December 28, 2013   Date of arrival: December 12, 2013

The condo is very clean. Our family had a good time over there. The only thing is that I send three messages to the owner, and only got one reply, maybe because of the holiday season. Other than that, it's beautiful condo with the reasonable price. If we go there again, we definitely will choose this condo again.

Recommended for: families with young children

Owners response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your vacation in Cocoa Beach and do hope that you return. I am sorry you didn't get all of your messages. I returned your calls and at least twice left a message with a gentleman. If using e-mail, it seems to work best to correspond using VRBO or Homeaway. It allows for easy reference later. Thank you for staying with us and again, we hope you return for another visit with us soon. We also have an ocean front unit, if 315 happens to be booked when you are planning your next trip to Cocoa Beach.

Nice Condo!

Review submitted: November 14, 2013   Date of arrival: October 30, 2013

This condo was very neat, clean and well maintained. The appliances and furniture were newer and there beach towels, chairs and other toys. For beach lovers, I would recommend the owners include a cooler, but the walk from the beach is not bad. My only negative comment would be that perhaps they should not advertise that there is an ocean view, as that is a stretch (literally) over the railing to see it. However, the walk to the beach is minimal. I just couldn't see it while having my morning coffee - no big deal. Overall, I would say that this is a very nice condo for the price, and well worth looking into. Would I stay there again? Yes, definitely.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: I am pleased that you thought we had a nice condo and hope that you had a great time. I have stayed in this condo myself many times and know that it has a nice view from the balcony and from the master bedroom. If you drink your coffee on the balcony you can sit at the table and see the ocean and it is a bit of a stretch to say that you have to lean over the rail to see it. The ad makes it clear that this unit is not on the front and the rental agreement that you received before you paid states that this unit is on the side of the building and that it is not ocean front.

If you decide to come back to Cocoa Beach next year, we have a top floor ocean front unit that may suit you better.

To avoid surprises when you rent a condo or anything else please read all the information available to you so that you can make an informed decision. So that our guest have a great time with no disappointments, I try to make it clear in the ad that this is an ocean view condo complete with a picture from the balcony and a disclaimer in the rental agreement stating: "The unit is in an ocean front complex but is on the side of the building. You have views of the ocean from the balcony and the master bedroom window."
