Ocean Woods is a beautiful, heavily wooded, private, gated and guarded community on the beach. The adult and heated family pool are across the driveway.

An Excellent Beach Hideaway
An Excellent Beach Hideaway
For the past five years we have rented this Villa the month of January. It is fully supplied and all you need to bring are your clothes. The kitchen is well equipped and is open to the dining area. The master bedroom is very large and has an ensuite and large walkin closet. The patio door opens to the patio area. The guest room is great if you have company and there is also a main washroom.An amazing feature of the Villa is the very private patio which is surrounded with vegetation, great for an outdoor B.B.Q. In the garage are beach chairs and bicycles. On the 6 minutes walk to the ocean beach you pass two swimming pools making the complete day of pool or ocean swimming. Shopping and grocery shopping are between 5-15 minutes away. A great vacation spot for us. We can't wait for our next visit.

My opinios re: the rental and Ocean Woods
My opinios re: the rental and Ocean Woods
My wife and I have stayed at this property for the last 3 years,..The property is great for a couple or two couples..Everything is on one floor..the main bedroom has an ensuite shower/bath, and there is a second shower bath outside the second bedroom..The main area is spacious with a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room area..The main bedoom has sliding doors to the backyard...and there is an outdoor shower which is pretty cool.. There are also plenty of chairs /bikes etc. for the beach.. Ocean Woods is a gated property with one main street,,and this unit was a 5 to 10 minute walk to a great beach... The property has plenty of trees overhanging the main street, and this makes it cooler when the temp is up... The fact that we return makes it clear we like the place a lot.

Wonderful Vacation Spot
Wonderful Vacation Spot
Have spent a few months at this property every year for the past five years. The gated compound is perfect: a short walk to a stunning beach, an 82 degree family pool, and a sheltered, sunny adult pool. The house is immaculate and well-appointed and includes a wonderful back yard: fenced, shaded, and including a heated outdoor shower, perfect for cleaning off the sand and sunscreen after a day at the beach. Shopping malls, friendly bars, the Canaveral Port - all are minutes away. We are already looking forward to going back in 2014.

Coming to your condo, we had no idea we'd be driving into a nature oasis. The community is a rare jewel in its low density, canopy of trees, and preservation from the front gates right out to the dunes and the sandy beach. We bought fresh seafood at the port, swam in the pools and body surfed at the beach. We got amazing photos of the birdlife, fauna, water, sunrises, and ships passing through the nearby entrance to Port Canaveral. The accomodations were top notch - everything we needed - from the fully equipped kitchen to the comfortable beds and furnishings. Thank you for your generous explanations of nearby activities and ideas and for making it so much more than we'd expected. Next year we will be back for sure!

About the owner: I am 50! I have had this villa for 10 years now and use it most weekends when it's open. We entertain A LOT there. We often have friends come for the weekend. We get fresh fish from the port and grill on the patio all the time. We walk 5 miles on the beach to the Cocoa Beach Pier and back every morning. I get a lot of exercise and eat VERY well on the weekends. It's a lot of fun and I return to Orlando rested and ready to work!
Why the Owner Chose Cape Canaveral:
The location could not be easier to get to from Orlando. It's a straight shot from Orlando on the Beach-Line. It's 50 minutes from my downtown home to the beach house. Ocean Woods is a very special community on the beach. There's no other community like it. Very tropical and shaded with scrub oaks and flowering vegetation. You can walk back and forth to the beach in the shade. I also wanted a home that I could possibly retire to later in life.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Close to the beach - what more can a person want! I don't lay in the sun much but I walk a lot on the beach. It's such great exercise and hearing the waves crash onto the shore is perfect mental therapy.
