Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Our vacation retreat, an 1800 square foot, newer condo, offers the perfect blend for relaxation, adventure, beach time, antiquing, swap meets with a couple of days for Orlando and Disney. (1 hour to Disney, Epcot, MGM Sea World, Universal Studios.) Our condo sits quietly on the 17th green of La Cita Golf & Country Club. Play golf at several of the many Florida courses nearby or enjoy coffee with a good book and just watch from your screened in lanais…one off the living room and one off the master bedroom You’ve arrived at Florida’s 'Hidden Riviera'.

Just a short bike ride or 3 minutes in the car takes you to Historic Titusville est. 1876. Booming during the early Space Shuttle days, but now home to sandy beach shops, restaurants, antique stores and even Live Theater. Space View Park offers a perfect Launching Viewpoint for the action here at the center of Florida’s Space Coast.

Space Coast.

With a turn toward the Atlantic, 5 minutes puts you at world famous Playalinda National Beach Sancuary. The nesting turtles are protected here so only people coming to enjoy the 25 miles of non-disrupted sand and warm water are invited. No fast food joints or hotels so pack your own picnic lunch and linger 'far from the maddening crowds'.

Crossing the causeway, be sure to keep eyes open for giant alligators resting along roads and take time to drive through the Merrit Island National Wildlife Refuge (bird watching, wild pigs, more alligators). You will have already spotted the Kennedy Space Center as it commands the view over at Merritt Island.

Spend a fascinating day touring the NASA Space Center and learn about the many elements involved with putting men and women in Space. Merritt Island has many golf courses, air boat rides, horseback riding, and fishing at the seashore or in many rivers and lakes in the area. Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal here. You can also make a day trip up to Daytona Beach and see the lighthouse (40 minutes north) or south to Cocoa Beach (20 min. south). You’ll pass the site of the World’s Largest Swap Meet on Hwy 1…be sure to stop…treasures to be found.

45 minutes back to Orlando Airport, and again you have Disney World, Epcot, MGM, Sea World, Universal Studios. Plan the grand kids' visit as part of your time.

Recently redecorated, the kitchen has everything you’ll need for 'stay in' cooking. Help yourself to the Starbucks in the freezer. New top line Queen beds in two bedrooms, 2 new singles in 3rd with a new sleeper sofa in the sunken living room to accommodate 8. Washer/Dryer included.

Covered parking also part of this quiet condo-complex. We’re entirely on the first floor which allows for handicap use with exception of the 2 steps into living room. Our condo is a wonderful 'Couples Escape'…load the clubs, fishing poles, walking shoes and friends and come visit.

About Owner Manager

Chuck and I are both retired and try to spend as much sunshine time at our 'home away from home' as possible. We've made wonderful friends over the years of sharing our space and now try to sneak into to T-ville and see them and share some golf and wine.

Owner Manager purchased this condo in 2002

Why Owner Manager chose Titusville

We love the area...quieter than West Florida and so much to do and the weather is nearly always perfect. Christmas is a lovely time here and our family enjoys it as well.

What makes this condo unique

Central to so much of what East Coast Florida is famous for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say that we had such a wonderful time staying at the condo! Was like staying at a friend’s house. I couldn’t believe all the things that you provide. Most vacation rentals you have to get soap, toilet paper , etc. We are already starting to plan a trip to go back to florida this summer and will definitely see if the condo is available again. Just wanted to say thank you for opening up your HOME to us. Lisa McKee

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This property is a hidden gem. My wife and I really enjoyed this property. The owners have made this property very accommodating to whoever may decide to rent it. It is beautifully decorated and very well furnished. I will most definitely look to book this property again. The owners are very responsive to email as well!

Exceeded my Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Dear Jill and Chuck, Thank you so much for allowing Fred and I to share your condo from 8/19 to 8/25. This trip was amazing and definitely exceeded both of our expectations.

From the time we entered the front door, we felt as if we were at home. Your place exemplifies comfort and homeyness.

Everything that we may have wanted or needed (except our food, of course) was at our disposal. The community was very quite and peaceful and to be able to see the golfers each day on the golf course was and added treat.

My sister and brother-in-law spent a couple of days with us and they were amazed by this condo too. They also loved how cozy it made them feel. We had a great time together just enjoying this wonderful space.

We really had the time of our lives. We went to the beaches, fishing and also enjoyed the food. My sister and brother-in-law will be contacting you to schedule some vacation time in the near future. We were so sad on 8/26 because we had to leave. This trip has made it difficult for me to plan future vacations because I can't stop thinking about how great this trip was. I am so looking forward to visiting at your place again, that is if you will allow us.

Thank you again Jill and Chuck, your kindness will forever be in our hearts.

The Looney's

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

I am struggling with this review because I waver between 4 and 5 stars. The condo itself is very nice. It was clean and had extra touches to make it feel like home. The kitchen was well stocked and even had spices etc. in it. There were first aid/personal suppplies in the bathrooms. There was plenty of room for our family of 7. The condo next to this one has smokers. If you are super sensitive to cigarette smoke, you will notice it. This is not the condo owner's fault.

Titusville does not have a lot to offer in the city itself but it was a good base camp for us. It will take 20-30 minutes to get to Playa Linda Beach, 50 minutes to Cocoa Beach. We went to Wekiwa Springs- a little over an hour drive- to kayak. (There is NOT a kayak at the condo). There is a place to see manatees at the reserve... just stop at the reserve's visitor center for directions . The Kennedy Soace Center is across the river but is at least a 20 minute drive to it. We were able to see a rocket launch from the river.

Again, the condo was great. Thank you Jill for making it feel like home.
