About Owner

Our 8 and 10 year olds have grown up staying at our Cape Canaveral family condo and they love every day that we're there. They're learning to appreciate the simple things in life - laughing, swimming, running, playing - a flash light beach walk at night, chasing ghost crabs and home cooked meals. We leave the gadgets at home and enjoy our beach family time to the fullest.

Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why Owner chose Cape Canaveral

Royal Mansions is located in a quiet residential area of Cape Canaveral. 700 feet of very private ocean beach is just a few steps away from the Unit. Cape Canaveral beach is excellent for families and for teaching younger children how to surf, boogie board, beach comb and enjoy the water. The Orlando attractions are less than an hour away, there are endless possibilities for fun!

What makes this condo unique

When we stay for a week our favorite activities are:

1. Starting and ending each day with a beach walk to collect shells and chase the sea birds. Kite flying on the beach is great in the evenings!

2. Surfing, boogie boarding, laying out and enjoying the pristine and very private beach.

3. A daily swim (or several swims) in the Royal Mansions pool to clean off the salt and practice 'cannonballs'.

4. Our children love going to Kennedy Space Center to see the Atlantis shuttle, Saturn 5 moon rocket and other attractions. Arrive early at 9:00 AM and stay until the park closes at 7:00 PM. Lots to do here and the food is reasonably priced. No need to spring for anything but the 'general admission'.

5. We love the Melbourne Zoo and the TreeTop adventure. Smaller kids (under 54 inches) will love the junior course and zip-line, only $14.95 each and 45 minutes of safe fun. Older types can attempt the adult course and zip-line over the alligator enclosure!! The zoo is a blast and the majority of the animal enclosures are located under shady trees. Don't forget swimmers for your toddlers, there is a small pool.

6. We always spend one day at "Aquatica" water park in Orlando. Get your discounted tickets at their website for $38 per person and be there when the park opens at 9:00 AM. Closes at 7:00 PM but our kids are usually worn out by 5:00 PM.

7. A hidden gem is the "Cocoa Beach Aquatic Center", open 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM with a small slide and huge pool. They heat it in Winter and cool it in the Summer! As a bonus Dad can play a round of golf at the Cocoa Beach public Course which is located right next door to the Aquatic Center. See the pool from the 2nd tee on the River course. There are 27 holes on three courses. A useful tip for Summer fun is to play nine holes after 4:30 PM for $16:00 (includes the cart). there's always a cool breeze in the evenings.

8. Dinner at the Port or one of the chain restaurants on SR520 near the Merritt Square Mall.

Amazing experience at a great condo

  • 5 of 5

Originally planning to stay further south on the coast, we had difficulty finding an available or affordable place for our time slot, so we looked further north through VRBO and found this unit. Are we glad we did! The condo was excellent, roomy, and steps from the beach. There was a burm between the condo and beach so being on the ground floor we couldn't see the beach from the condo but could hear the waves, and we just had to take a few steps onto a tremendous beach which was undergoing restoration at the time and is an amazing beach that runs a long distance. The condo was well furnished, and while we found the main bed a little soft for our taste, we used the murphy bed in the living room which was firmer, so you have an option. We also had access to their beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels, and for those who have children there are ample beach toys. The condo is just a short distance to the Cocoa Beach pier area to the south, and close to the launch area for the Kennedy Space Center to the north. A real bonus was being able to watch the launch of the Space X Mercury Heavy rocket while there, right from the beach near the condo. We saw the launch and recovery! The condo is less than an hour's drive from the Disney theme parks in Orlando area, if the desire to go there exists. But we had such a great time relaxing at the beach that we canceled our planned trip to Epcot. Another bonus was that the beach at the condo is very close to where cruise ships and other large ships come out of the Port Canaveral facilities and are fun to observe as they launch out to sea. The owner and contact were very helpful and hospitable in their assisting us. We can highly recommend this condo and would love to use it again if we have the chance. Larry & Diane Eide, Blaine, WA

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great ground level condo! The foliage blocked any view of the ocean from the room, but we had a fabulous time! We were one of the closest units to access the private beach from the walkway.

So great to have toys and beach towels/chairs/umbrella since we flew and did not want to waste luggage space on these items. All items in the condo were is excellent repair and the shower was a-maz-ing!!

Thanks so much for sharing your slice of heaven with our family!
