Sandcastles condo description

You get great views of the beach from this top floor ocean front unit. The 50 inch tv w/blu-ray in the living room is great if you decide you want to spend an evening just relaxing or watching a game. There are also 39' tv's in both bedrooms for your viewing pleasure and all of the tv's have a DVD player. Wi-fi is also available if you want to search for local attractions or want to keep up with what's going on at home or on Facebook. There is also free long distance telephone service. You can use the fitness center across the street for free, you just need to sign in using your unit number.

You will be able to enter the unit with a 4 digit code that you can specify so that there is no worry about tracking down your keys upon arrival. Please remember that check in is at 3 p.m. and your code will not work until shortly before that time on the day of arrival and the code will deactivate shortly after your 10 a.m. check out time. This is for the security of all of our guests.

Cocoa Beach is a great family friendly town and Sandcastles is the best weekly rental complex in Cocoa Beach. We are an hour from the Orlando attractions and 20 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center. The Brevard Zoo is near by as is the Cocoa Sports Complex. The pool, hot tub, sauna, community grill and tennis court are available if you want to take a break from the beach. The Lori Wilson park just down the beach is a great place for a picnic over looking the ocean or for a walk in the 'jungle'. The Cocoa Beach Pier is about two miles north with great food and excitement and Port Canaveral is just about 5 miles north. There you can see cruise ships as they depart or arrive back in port from several great water front restaurants if you time it right. There is a Publix and Winn Dixie just down the street and Merritt Island is just across the causeway and they have a Walmart, and a mall with a 16 screen theater. There are lots of local and chain restaurants to fill any dining desire. Just past Merritt Island you will find Cocoa which has a number of quaint shops and restaurants that you can enjoy.

Ron Jon's surf shop is right down the street as well as the Cocoa Beach surf shop and both offer lots in interesting beach related merchandise as well as rentals of beach equipment and surf lessons.

There is a gambling boat that launches out of Port Canaveral if that is an activity that you enjoy. The port also offers deep sea fishing charters for individual or group outings. The para sailing boat that calls the port home is also great fun.

If you enjoy a round of golf the Cocoa Beach Country Club (public despite the name) has a course and they have an Olympic size pool as well.

We offer last minute discounts if the unit is available 2 weeks before your visit dates there is a 10% discount, 1 week before the visit date there is a 20% discount.

There will be a starter supply of shampoo, soap, bathroom tissue, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and dish liquid. Please note that you will likely need to purchase an additional supply of these items during your stay.

If this unit is booked and you can't find another ocean front unit or if you prefer an ocean view unit in the same family friendly complex check out our other unit which is VRBO # 396215.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We are from KY and bought this condo in June of 2013 with hopes of becoming 'Snow Birds' someday but for now I work as a nursing home administrator and my wife, who is a nurse is also a teacher, teaching middle school special education, God bless her. We plan to visit Cocoa Beach 3 or 4 times a year and find that it feels like home. We usually drive down and it usually takes about 12 hours. Our 15 year old son loves the beach and the pool. He also loves to kayak. Our daughter is 32 and comes with us some but I am sure will want to use the unit on trips with her friends (should I give her a discount?).

          Why the Owner Chose Sandcastles:
          We have found over the years that we much prefer staying in a condo over a hotel. We have vacationed in Florida Condos many times but our favorite spot is Cocoa Beach. After looking at many units with the help of a great realtor, Jennifer McCoy with Remax Elite, we decided that Sandcastles was the best that Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral had to offer. I used to watch I Dream of Jennie when I was younger and appreciate the fact that we are just a short distance from I Dream of Jennie Blvd. I always keep an eye out for fancy bottles buried in the sand when we walk the beach.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          We love the spacious interior, the large pool and the hot tub. The seventh floor ocean front location is second to none for ocean/beach views. We also enjoy a short walk to the the local park or to the fitness center across the street. But being right on the beach so that we can go out for an early morning walk and watch the sunrise as we walk along the quiet beach is our very most favorite thing about our vacations to Cocoa Beach. Lori Wilson Park is just about a hundred yards up the beach and it is a great place for a picnic or a walk through the 'jungle'.
