To receive these last minute discounts, you must pay with a credit card or if you live or travel near London, KY you can pay in cash (these discounts do not apply to less than weekly rentals). We also offer discounts if more than one week is booked at a time. The second week gets a 5% discount off of regular weekly rates and the third week gets a 10% discount off of regular weekly rates.

Nearby Merritt Island has a nice Mall with movie theaters and there are many additional restaurants. Ocean kayaking or on the more tranqual Banana River is also a fun opportunity.

The beach is quiet near the condo but if you like a little more action the pier and some ocean front bars are nearby for your entertainment.

We have a starter supply of soap, shampoo, bathroom tissue, laundry detergent, dish detergent and dishwasher detergent. Please not that you will likely have to purchase more of these items during your stay.

About Philip Gilkison

We are from KY and bought this condo in December of 2011 with hopes of becoming 'Snow Birds' someday but for now I work as a realtor and my wife, who is a nurse is also a teacher, teaching middle school special education, God bless her. We plan to visit the unit 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 17 year old son loves the beach and the pool. He also loves to kayak. Our daughter is 35 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?).

Philip Gilkison purchased this condo in 2011

Why Philip Gilkison chose Cocoa Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

We love the spacious interior, the large pool and the hot tub. The third floor location is high enough but still makes a quick escape to the beach easy without having to use the elevator. 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'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful beachfront condo!, December 2, 2012



By Brandy Shaw (Brewer, ME)

Beautiful condo in a great location! This was our first visit to Cocoa Beach and felt very welcomed in this rental. The proximity to the beach itself was perfect. Everything was very clean and tidy. Thank you very much for making our first visit to FL a memorable one. We hope to visit again!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and had a lot of space for my family (5 people). We enjoyed the TV in both bedrooms and living room, the relaxing balcony, the short walk to the beach and the clean pool. The pictures are exactly what you get for the condo. The owner was very friendly and easy to deal with. The condo is located close to everything in Cocoa Beach. We had a great time staying there. Thanks!

Memories created to last a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my family and I arrived we loved everything about the condo. It was very conveniently located on A1A (main road) and very easy to find. The condo is set back closer to the beach so you don't even notice that you are on a busy street. The owners left us great directions on how to access the building and gain entry into our condo. When we entered he condo, we were very pleased that everything in the condo was just as wonderful as the pictures that grabbed our attention on VRBO to begin with. The condo was very clean with all of the amenities of home. The bed in the master bedroom was comfortable and I had no trouble sleeping each night. I loved the room darkening blinds too. (May not be a big deal to some people but to me that was GREAT!) The bunk beds in the second bedroom were full size so my son and daughter never complained about having to share a room because they both had plenty of space for their things. My two kids, ages 12 and 15, LOVED the abundance of beach toys, sand toys, umbrellas, and chairs that were in the hall closet for us to use during our stay. It was great having a fully stocked kitchen to eat breakfast and lunch at the condo instead of eating out for every meal. Great location for the beach as well as our stretch of beach was never too crowded and was always easy to find a spot to set up our chairs. We only had one small problem with our access key to the pool one day so I emailed Phil, the owner, to ask him who we needed to talk to about this and he called me back within 10 minutes so that we could get the problem solved. Turns out it was a problem with the gate and not anything that the owners did wrong. I loved the PROMPT reply. This shows me he truly cares about the people who are renting this condo. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! My kids want to go back again.

Great place for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has the best of both words, great space and awesome beach. The condo is a huge two bedroom, very comfortable and very well kept. My kids loved the bunk beds. The kitchen has all the amenities you need. Added bonus- all the things you need for the beach are in a closet! The beach is just a few short steps away and is amazing. This place is perfect for a beach vacation or going to a rocket launch.

Cocoa Beach is one of the closest beaches to Orlando and is only minutes from Kennedy Space center. There are many restaurants in the area, some of our favorites are the Lobster Shanty in South Cocoa Beach, Sunset Grill on 528 just before you get on the causeway, the Atlantic Ocean Grill on the Pier and Grills at the port. My son loves the bread pudding at Fishlips, also at the port. The newly renovated Cocoa Expo Sports Center is only 14 miles away. After a recent $40 million renovation this is one of the premier sports complexes in the country.
