Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4
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. Enjoy!

Bright and Cheery Condo
Very nice condo, has everything you need for a relaxing stay. A few steps to the beautiful beach, a short drive to the port, restaurants, attractions, and shopping.
Awesome vacation rental!!
We had an awesome vacation! Just steps from the beach. With all the beach gear supplied. Everything we needed for our family of 4. We cooked & grilled everything that you would need in a kitchen. Just blocks from stores for any supplies needed. Rosey (local contact) was helpful & answered our questions quickly. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Bill!
Thank you so much for that wonderful review. My family and I are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. It also brings a smile to our faces that even though we’re not there, wonderful families like yourselves can enjoy the beautiful beach just as much as we did. This condo has always held a special place in our
hearts. Thank you again for the review, and we are glad you had a great time!
Clean and comfortable
This condo was very clean, which is the first thing I look for. The furniture was very comfortable and the rooms were bright and sunny. I sat in the sunroom often to read. The condo was well stock for our use. We fixed most of our meals in and what was stocked in the kitchen was adequate. The bathroom was renovated and the shower was wonderful! Another plus for me was the washer and dryer!! We liked the convenience of being on the first floor but no sunrise view. No problem since the boardwalk to the beach was right there for the beautiful sunrise views. We have rented many condos in the Royal Mansion and we would definitely rent this condo again.
We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We'll make sure we continue to maintain our unit in tip-top condition so that you'll have an even more enjoyable holiday next year.
Lovely beach vacation
The large patio was perfect for our young son. The in-unit washer and dryer were so convenient. The kitchen had all you would need. Also, all the beach gear is already there, even beach towels. The short walk to the beach was ideal and the beach was beautiful! The unit's location is the best in the complex, equal distance to the pool and the beach. Bill and Rosie were very easy to work with! We would stay there again! Our little family had a great vacation!
Great place. Clean, nice decoration, quiet, comfortable beds and near the beach 🙂👍
We absolutely loved our stay at this condo! It was such a short walk to the beach which was great with our two little ones! The beach was so private and we loved watching the cruise ships come and go everyday. Another bonus to the condo was the washer and dryer. That definitely came in handy. We look forward to staying at this condo for future beach trips!
