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.
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.

Stayed 19 of 24 nights, had to leave.
First five days were quite and tranquil gave us the opportunity to relax after four days on the road. Unit occupants directly above began to get very loud on day 6. This grew into a full out verbal assault by day 10 between the senior lady condo owner and a late twenties male which grew in volume usually afternoon and evening above us on there open veranda. Style of language was right out of the worse gutter! I talked to one of the neighbors who said, " the arguing goes on all the time."During the five days ahead the arguing subsided but continued at random. On day 16 a two man crew arrived and began breaking up the tile on one of two staircases with a portable jackhammer 20 feet from our condo front door. This went on for 7-8 straight hours of the first day. On the two following days they chipped away, hammered and scraped and cleaned the stairway. I came out and asked them if they were going to continue and they said yes, in two more days they would remove another tile section with the jackhammer as contracted. I emailed the condo rental owner and explained what was taking place, there was NO reply and my wife and I left the next day which was five days early. If your going into this condo on their agreement I would recommend bringing your own contract protections.
In renting our condo over many years, I’ve never had a renter that left feeling so unhappy. As an owner, I was distressed when I got Greg’s email that they were leaving early due to noise and I immediately started the process of intervening in his behalf. I DID reply to his email the very next day & attemps to reach him by phone were unsucessful? I had talked to him at least four times In his two weeks there and he could have called me before leaving as he knew I was always available to talk. But, in fact all I got was his, “ I am leaving” email. What he didn’t tell you in his review is that I had immediately expressed my apologies for all the events that happened that were out of my control and I had refunded him $500 of his rent plus I did not charge him for the cleaning which I paid for myself as an extra gift to him for any disruption. I had only been informed about the tile work contracted 2 days before & had no idea that the noise would carry. The project was scheduled for only ONE day of his stay. The TOTALLY unacceptable neighbor noise was reported to the Condo association & legal action started, however, and certainly, this was something no one should have to tolerate.
Accommodation great ! Thanks Jill and Jack!
My family and I where more then comfortable with condo! Our only problem was if you advertise sleeps 8 your going to need more then one parking space.We came with new bike trailer and after talking to president of association had permission to park in totally empty strip of parking. I could of made other arrangements and offered. This became a problem due to some one complained? All in all Jill had us put in car port and next day was told we could leave in open parking space? I went on vacation to escape drama and learned home association would never be for me!
Comfortable property - great for a family with 3 kids who want there own bed
My family (2 adults and 3 kids) stayed a few days before going on a cruise from Port Canaveral. We visited the Space Center and Orlando during our stay.
The house was very clean and comfortable, we would rent again. Surrounding neighborhood was nice, we were able to enjoy some evening walks. The house was well stocked with small things you find you need unexpectedly like a stapler and even a small sewing kit.
Thanks Krista & hope your cruise was also wonderful.
Happy New Year!
Jill & Chuck
Great Location and Golf Views
The condo served our vacation perfectly. We had a quick trip to see family in the area and even though the condos are dated- it was very clean and comfortable!
Charming condo in a great location
The condo was immaculately clean and spacious, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with every amenity. It was tastefully decorated with lots of personal touches that made us feel like we were staying in the home of a friend. Jill was easy to work with and a great communicator. When we had some last minute changes in our travel plans she was very accommodating. The condo was in a very nice neighborhood and we felt very safe.
We came to the Space Coast mainly for bird watching. The condo was centrally located within 30 minutes of dozens refuges and parks, most notably the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Cape Canaveral National Seashore. In a week we saw almost 100 different species of birds, not to mention lots of other wildlife including a bobcat. It was an easy drive out from Orlando International, bypassing most of the city traffic. We will definitely stay here again next time we come to the area!
Thank you for sharing your experience while staying at our condo and you'll always be welcome back again! I've printed off the wonderful summary that you wrote for me of the birds you actually saw on your trip...and I'm terribly envious!!! Next time...:_) I've had our gal on spot put a copy in the drawer of "things to do" and I know others will appreciate your thoughtfulness as well.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday season and put in some "rest" time, too.
Best to you both,
Jill and Chuck
Everything is so close, the pool is fantastic and the condo is so convenient, clean and well laid out.
Other Activities: Kennedy Space Center: 10 minute drive
