504 is a Cape Winds Resort top floor unit. Incredible beach and ocean view from your private balcony in this fully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo.
How close are we to the beach? Well, your top floor condo is directly over the beach. You can throw a Frisbee and land it on the sand with no problem. You are looking directly at the beach. Standing on your balcony you watch rockets blast off from Kennedy Space Center just a couple miles north on the beach. Look south and you can see the Cocoa Beach Pier about a mile down the beach.
We are the closest beach to Orlando! DisneyWorld is 1 hour and 15 minutes away. Universal Studio and Sea World (Shamu!) are only 1 hour away. Want to visit NASA? The Kennedy Space Center complex is less than 30 minutes away!
n fact, Cape Winds is known to many as the 'Home of the Astronauts'. We have had many astronauts and NASA scientists stay at Cape Winds. In our unit, we recently hosted the top guy at NASA. From your balcony, you can see the rockets when they take off. Also, submarines frequently visit a small submarine base on the edge of the NASA property. You can watch them glide in right from our balcony. We left a large telescope in the unit so you can see them up close!
This unit has recently undergone a complete renovation---new carpet, new paint, new master shower, all new kitchen with new appliances and new counter-top, and all new furniture! New leather living room furniture replaced August 2014.
And, the Cape Winds complex has it all. 2 tennis courts, huge pool, hot tub, dry sauna, covered parking and so much more. The condo comes equipped with a washer and dryer just in case you need it. The master bedroom comes with a king size bed and there are 2 twin beds in the 2nd room. Fully functional kitchen with all the items needed to have every meal in. An incredible value when compared to a hotel.
Lots of local attractions nearby. In addition to Disney, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios, the Cape Canaveral cruise ship port is about 2 miles away. Tip: Lots of great restaurants down by the cruise ship port. At the port you can also sign up for great deep sea fishing or try your luck on the casino ships that go out every day. Or, try your hand at surfing with Ron Jon's surf shop only 2 miles away... you can even rent surfboards and surf right outside the unit. Great surf fishing is also available on our beach. Also available locally are airboat rides, biplane tours of the beach, the Kennedy Space Center, the Astronaut museum, and lots more!

Year Purchased: 2011
About: We live in Orlando and sometimes in our log cabin in North Carolina. Joyce works as a nurse and I split my time making custom furniture or helping businesses that are either new or are 'Marketing challenged'. My passion is building custom furniture. I was born and raised on Amelia Island, Florida and met Joyce in Orlando. We are enjoying our life as grandparents. We love to travel together and have had some wonderful times visiting places around the US and abroad.
Why Cape Canaveral: We bought this property because we wanted a beach place close to Orlando. Cape Canaveral is the closest beach. We also chose this specific property as it has, in our view, the best amenities and it is directly on the beach. Our unit is on the top floor directly facing the ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The views from the living room and private balcony are truly wonderful. Watch the sunrise over the ocean as cruise ships and the occasional submarine glide by about a mile offshore. Watch Rockets blast off from NASA (2 miles up the beach). The pool is big, heated, and wonderful. We are close to great restaurants (Favorite is 'Grills' down in the cruise port area.... and, Izzy's right down the road is very, very good'.
