Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4 Adults
About Liz Giffin
I am a true Floridian, born and raised. I purchased this condo in 2002 as an escape from Orlando. We decided to rent it and share our relaxing get-away with our VRBO friends. It is such a treat to feel the ocean breeze, smell the ocean air and be away from it all on vacation. No worries...We hope you feel the same way after staying at the Diplomat.

Why Liz Giffin chose Cocoa Beach
The location is perfect. The semi-private beach access is just a few steps away from your front door. The gated beach entry is for Diplomat guests only. After soaking up the sun, its always nice to take a refreshing dip in the pool! The condo is located within walking distance of a grocery store, restaurants, cold drinks, live music, tiki bar, and parks. Our unit is in the middle of the beachfront complex. We are located just a few steps away from the beach to the east and the community pool to the west. Google Earth the property for an overview of The Diplomat Complex and Cocoa Beach landmarks. 3150 N. Atlantic Avenue, Cocoa Beach FL 32931.
What makes this Condo unique
The property is safe, secure and well maintained. The Diplomat is one of the nicest condominium complexes in Cocoa Beach. Our beach is a great spot to check out the SpaceX rocket launches!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Felt like home
Stayed November and December 2018. The condo was just right for me and my dog, and an occasional visitor. Everything I needed was provided. The pool was warm and only a short walk to the beach. The bed was comfortable, heat and AC worked well. I appreciated having the washer and dryer in the condo . I will be back next year for November and December! Thank you Liz
Fabulous condo for a quiet stay at the beach
This condo had everything you need for a great time. Comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen and washer/dryer combo. Just a short walk to the beach through the complex. It has all the beach equipment you may want plus kiddie equipment. The condo even has three TVs. It’s decorated in a cute beach theme with plenty of linens and towels for your convenience. The owner is so helpful throughout your stay. Grocery stories and every convenience just a short walk away. We loved it
Thank you for your kind words. I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay. You’re welcome back anytime!
We loved being so close to the beach.
It was very nice. A little out dated but fit our needs and we loved being so close to the beach.
Super cute condo! Very convenient.
We love visiting Cocoa Beach and this trip was super great thanks to staying in this condo. Very well stocked and comfortable. The owner, Liz, is very nice. You can’t beat the one minute walk to the beach!
A great stay at Cocoa Beach!
Our stay at the Diplomat was very enjoyable! We enjoyed playing shuffleboard, swimming in the pool and spending time at the beach (only minutes from our front door).
The condo had everything we needed for a day at the beach to include beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and coolers.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need to prepare meals, also a blender and coffeemaker as well as a Keurig.
The bedrooms were tastefully decorated in beach motif and the beds were very comfortable!
Thank you Liz for an enjoyable and relaxing time in the Florida sun! We hope to visit again someday!
the Owner does not care
We rented the appartment for 1 month during the hurricaine Irma. We where not allowed to stay in the area for four days, and when we came back from our hotel stay in Orlando, we had big problems to find a place to stay. We had no help from the owner! There was no water and no electricity. No hotells where open in Cocoa, even though our owner of the appartment told us so. We stayed in the appartment for two days with no electricity before one hotel opened in Cocoa. We had to pay for another two nights! On day nine the electricity came back, but even though we told the owner that the television did not work she did not do anything about it. Refound for the days we where not able to stay in the appartment we nerver received! No compensation for not working television! What we have here is a owner who just care for the money and not for the persons who rents the appartment. We where a long way from home in a foreign country, scared with no help! We are from Sweden.
I, once again, apologize for the inconvenience Hurricane Irma caused you and your family during your stay in August. This was an unprecedented Category 5 storm impacting millions of Floridians, causing $100 Billion dollars in property loss and damage. I understand this situation can be very scary and it was unfortunate the storm made landfall during your vacation. I’m grateful the impact had only minor damage to the condo complex and you and your family are safe.
Brevard County issued a mandatory evacuation for your safety. Due to the condo complex being direct oceanfront, and uncertainty of the storm path, it is always best to evacuate inland. It was not a matter of “not being allowed to stay” as stated in your review, it was a requirement for your safety. The power and cable were out of operation for several days, 16 million Floridians were also out of power, it was not isolated only on Cooca Beach. This was clearly out of my control, and I wish it hadn’t impacted you. What I could control was continuing to call Duke Energy, the condo association and keeping you updated daily/hourly via email and phone, which I did. Regarding the TV, Bright house was not accepting status calls as almost 100% of its customers were impacted by Irma. They were well aware of the wide spread issues and were diligently working to completely restore operations. They were working to restore service around the clock, with technicians from across the country helping the entire State of Florida.
For future tenants reading this review, it is always recommended to obtain travel insurance if traveling to an area which could be impacted during hurricane season. It is not customary to receive reimbursement for weather related disturbances, and this language is included all rental agreements. If booking via HomeAway, they offer a “Booking with Confidence” policy to its tenants which would have provided assistance to Mrs.Karlsson’s and family in this case of evacuation. HomeAway provides a secondary insurance policy which could have been enacted by tenants in a state of emergency and/or displacement.
To the Karlsson’s, I again apologize for the 2-days you were out of power, 9 days without TV during your stay with us. I hope the remaining 3+ weeks in Cocoa Beach were enjoyable.
Cocoa Beach offers a variety of activities which includes Water Sports, Kayaking, Fishing, Art, Shopping, Great Seafood and Dining, Live Music, Golfing, and of course just lying on the Beach and enjoying the view and the breeze.
