Laura and James
Why Laura and James chose Cocoa Beach
We travelled to Cocoa Beach a couple of years ago with our family of five and stayed at the Spanish Main where we quickly fell in love with the complex and the area. The beach is perfect for young kids, easy to walk on, and relatively quiet compared to the more public areas. We also liked the variety of things to do within a relatively short distance such as miniature golf, the Brevard zoo and natural wildlife reserves. The condo is close to Orlando making day trips to Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios very easy with just over an hour drive away.
What makes this Condo unique
We previously stayed in a unit at Spanish Main on the fourth floor which does have spectacular views, but we fell in love with our ground floor unit with the ease of bringing items (i.e. groceries and luggage) right in from the car and being able to walk right out the back door to the pool or beach and not have to deal with waiting for elevators or taking the stairs. The views are even more spectacular when you can walk right outside to see them.

Perfect Getaway with Unmatched Amenities
Staying at James and Laura's place was very comfortable, with many of the amenities you wouldn't find it normal hotel or vacation rentals; beach and pool toys, books, board games, washer/dryer, drying rack, and a PLETHORA of fans (which was sooo well received with my crew as we are all "white noise" sleepers. The space was clean and absolutely well maintained!!
AIR: While the air felt a little stale when we first entered, it wasn't anything a few hours of open windows and fresh ocean air didn't fix. To be clear, it wasn't moldy or musky, just likely it just sat for a little while between the last rental and ours. This wouldn't stop me from staying here again whatsoever.
FURNITURE: The bedding in 2/3 rooms were super comfortable. The mattresses on the two twin beds in the third room were a little thin and bouncy, perfect for kids; maybe not so much for a full sized adult, although the one adult who did take that bed didn't seem to mind so maybe it's a personal preference.
While this may not matter to others, I ABSOLUTELY loved that this space had non-fabric couches (they had leather) and non-carpet flooring (tiled). Only because you know it can be wiped clean!!!
The dining room table was large and inviting so sitting down to dinner with the ocean in the backdrop was just SO heaven.
PEACE&QUIET: There was some maintenance going on in the building through the holiday weekend which was pretty annoying. That in mind, the owners ABSOLUTELY disclosed this information so this was not a surprise when we arrived and the above mentioned fans helped to drown out the early morning jack hammering. To be honest, this place felt like a bunker in terms of privacy, quietness, and peace. IT WAS amazing.
UNIT LOCATION: Relative to some of the other available rentals at Spanish Main, this unit's location was THE BEST!!! It was on the ground floor, so to hop from the beach to the pool to the condo to the car to wherever, was just THAT much easier.
Second, the fact it was facing the ocean, instead of the "pool area" courtyard was a HUGE plus. IN fact, this alone was the reason I selected this spot over other available spaces. The outdoor patio to this condo led RIGHT onto the grass, which led right to the beach. Consider this a HUGE PLUS if you're with little ones (a front yard right there!).
I have NO REGRETS about this rental and would absolutely seek it out when I return to the area. :)
Everything worked exactly as described.
The condo was exactly how we imagined and in a great location with easy beach access! Pool was well kept, clean and perfect for our use. Our family had a great stay!
This Condo Is A 10!!
This condo was PERFECT! The owners stayed in contact prior to our visit. The check in process could not have been easier. The condo itself even better than the pictures ! It truly is only steps to the beach. I don’t think you could get any closer. Thank you for a wonderful family getaway!
Easy beach access
Roomy, and as close to the beach as you can hope for. Plenty of towels. Near outdoor grills.
Had a great week. Condo was clean and well stocked. Beach access was super close.
