About the property

This is a beautify, quiet, relaxing ocean front community. This beautiful 2 bedroom/1 bathroom condo, located in The Diplomat Condominium Complex. It is about 1/2 mile South of the World Famous Ron Jon Surf Shop, really in the best location in Cocoa Beach. The condo is a second floor end unit. The beachfront condo complex has it's own gated boardwalk to the ocean (see photo above - the condo is only a few steps away from the boardwalk), a community recreation center, shuffleboard and tennis courts, laundry facilities, and a heated pool for the winter months with a club house (see photo above). The community has just completed a covered picnic area with an outdoor BBQ.

There is no need to drive once you arrive at the condo. It is minutes from local attractions and the Kennedy Space Center. Easy access and about 30 minutes away from Disney, Sea World and Universal.

the Owner does not care

  • 2 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 11 days stay at Liz's place. The condo was perfect, everything is convenient and well thought for the guests. Our son even had his own room and double bed, and found in his closet beach toys and movies to watch. It is located in a corner, which makes it nice to sit on the balcony and enjoy the shade. The beach is right there, and so is the pool, just warm enough, great when the sun gets too strong. Liz is also right there to answer quickly our textos.

Oh, and we really loved the big and extra soft beach towels.

The only bad side for us was the lack of waves for surfing.

Thanks for everything Liz and we hope we can stay at your place again next year.

Myriam, Thomas and little Germain

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our stay! Close to everything we needed, has a tennis court & picnic area, it's right on the ocean & it even has a heated pool! Liz had everything there for us that we needed for the beach, cooking, cleaning & relaxing. Definitely would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Cocoa Beach!

Just finishing up 2 weeks at this condo and everything was just perfect. The Diplomat is the ideal location as it is close to restaurants ,grocery stores and a Redbox right across the street(however Liz has so many movies here we didn't need to rent much). The condo has everything you could need, the location within the complex is ideal, midway between both the pool and the beach access. The beach access is steps away and is very secluded however not a far walk to where a lifeguard is(which I like with 2 teenagers). Everyone at the complex was very friendly. I can't say enough good about it. The only downfall we found was only 2 queen beds, which was tough with 2 teenagers, however we made it work. There was plenty of room in the living room to have put a blow up mattress on the floor, but didn't bother to.(teens hardly sleep anyway during the night lol). I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you again Liz for a great vacation! We look forward to coming back next year hopefully

About Liz Giffin

I am a Florida girl, born and raised. I purchased this condo in 2002 as an escape from the chaos of Orlando. We decided to rent it and share the relaxing, fun, escape to our friends. It is such a treat when we get the opportunity to drive over that bridge and feel the ocean breeze, smell the ocean air and truly be on vacation. No worries...We hope you feel the same way after staying.
