          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2001

          About the owner: We are married 40 years, have 4 grown children & 9 grand children.We spend winter months in Cocoa Beach & summer months in Illinois often flying back & forth for business & to see family we have in both places. Travel to Alaska and Costa Rica and throughout the U.S. We own rental properties in several locations. As Real Esate Brokers over the last 30 years,we now SPECIALIZE in helping people AQUIRE VACATION rental/resort & income properties as owners/investors, besides our own rental offerings such as this dream sandcastle.

          Why the Owner Chose Sandcastles:
          My parents migrated here after their retirement. We visited them & vacationed here as often as we could. We fell in love with what many locals call the 'undiscovered affordable Florida' Having been Real Estate Brokers most of our lives we often went to open houses at beach properties. We felt this condo with its location in the center of Cocoa Beach, had great potential. We thought that some day the Cocoa Beach area, Cape Canaveral, the numerous cruise ships and proximity to Orlando attractions would make this a major vacation/tourist destination; As it has!

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          The place is a paradise!... It's the best of 2 worlds; you can just lay back, relax on the beach or partake in the many activities in the area around you: The Pier with its shops,bars and restaurants, surfers, fishing and volley ball games, or the Port with cruise boats and deep sea fishing, the unique eco life of the Banana River, Canaveral National Sea Shore, Cocoa village with its old Florida feel & shops & great restaurants or any of the many Orlando attractions that are less that an hour away!
