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?).

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!

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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great location. The grounds were well kept. The pool was amazing. We did not use the beach but there were chairs and umbrella available which was nice. The sleeping arrangements with the bunk full beds was not the best for adults as each time the kids moved the bed moved and woke us up but the owner had an inflatable which we used instead. Kitchen is new and well stocked. Close to Publix and other places. Nice touch to post address by phone. Owner was easy to deal with and prompt to email us about everything. Great condo to rent in Cocoa Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I can understand your comment on the spare bedroom but many people love it because of the large amount of floor space for kids to play and the space available for the desk.
