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.

Enjoy!

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

Delightful one bedroom condo in Cape Canaveral

  • 5 of 5

We occupied this unit the week of May 13 thru 19, 2018, and we'll definitely rent this unit again!

It had everything we needed and it had that light, beachy feel we were looking for since we live in the arid, 50 shades of beige, desert. All the kitchen items, towels, linens, and beach items that you could want were provided. I have mobility issues and the ease of accessibility from the parking lot to the unit was great. I loved the big, beautiful shower. The fact that I didn't have to climb into a tub was such a plus! We loved the sun room, too, for sitting and reading with all that lovely light coming in, even when it was raining.

Everything we wanted to do was within a short drive from the condo, and grocery and drug stores were very nearby. My brother lives nearby in Rockledge, so it was easy to get together with him and his family. And our favorite Cape Canaveral restaurant, Fish Lips, was just a 5-minute drive away at Port Canaveral!

Bill, the owner, was very responsive during the booking process, and Rosy, the local contact, was just a phone call away when I had questions. I highly recommend this unit. We'll be back!

Fun Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo, and are very happy we did. It is a first floor, immaculately clean one bedroom condo with very nice amenities. A nice master bedroom with a queen bed, walk in closet, (beach toys included), small tv, dresser, and end table with drawers. The bed was too soft for a larger couple, but we made due. The attached bathroom was very nice, equipped with a generously large single sink vanity and a large walk in shower with glass doors. Toilet is across from the shower all light fixtures and fans work well. Lots of good hot water pressure! When you walk in the door of the unit, to the right is a nice sitting room equipped a with a very nice chase lounge and a glass slider out to the wrap around patio. This rooms view of the ocean is impeded by the landscaping in front which I believe was intended to give some relief from the wind. This is exactly what it did for us. I enjoyed morning/evening quiet time sitting on the patio listening to the surf come in. Straight as you walk in the living room is of decent size with a 30 inch or so television and a newer couch that matches the chase. There is a full/queen Murphy bed that swings down next to the couch, This is were our children slept. It was much more supportive , we will probably try sleeping there if we are lucky enough to get the same unit next year! Beyond the living room is a small dinning area that seats 4 comfortably and we ate most of our breakfasts there. Finally the fully equipped kitchen, with a large sink, full size refrigerator/freezer, oven/stove, microwave, dishwasher, all the necessary eating /cooking utensils. A small utility closet to the right or the refrigerator containing a washer dryer stack. So please wives out there reading this, Do Not Over Pack! Lol...just a mans perspective. The community pool is very nice, the kids loved it. The community hot tub was kept hot, pressure lacked but ultimately satisfactory. Location is great! Walk to the beach. 5 minutes from port Canaveral, 35 mins from the Space Center. Awesome! The highlight of our week was once again the sunrise mass at the beach! Finally I had communication from the owning family and they were great! They have a local woman who manages the unit in there absence, here name is Rosie and she handled any question we had expeditiously. We would definitely rent again for our small family! Thank you Bill / Rosie! The Woodward's

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Property was perfect for my needs. Beach was very private and the location afforded some entertainment when the big ships left the port. They are sooooo big! Condo well equipped and Rosey, contact, was Johnny-on-the-spot if I needed anything. Cell service inside was poor (concrete building?) and WiFi was spotty at times would be my only comments and who needs it when you have the beach!

Owner's Response: Hi Judy, We're so glad you enjoyed your time at our condo. We love watching the cruise ships when they depart in the early evenings. Early morning is the best time to see USN submarines arriving or departing from the Port. Hope to see you again soon! Owners
