About Julian, Judith and Yves

Julian, his sister Judith and her husband Yves own the 2nd floor of this property while the groundfloor is owned by Yves' parents. We all live in Germany but parts of the family come from Switzerland.

Julian, Judith and Yves purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Julian, Judith and Yves chose Crescent Beach

Dolphin Bay is perfectly located between the Banana River and the Atlantic Ocean.

We fell in love with this place, the location and the relaxed atmosphere of Cocoa Beach.

What makes this apartment unique

The backyard is next to the Banana River. Dolphins often swim buy. You just have to walk across the street to the beach, which is never crowded.

This was a wonderful place to bring our family! We loved our time here and want to return.

  • 5 of 5

This property was nice in the pictures and even better in person! It had an amazing view of the river from the balcony and pool and my husband loved taking the kayak out. We were able to spot dolphins in the river and on the ocean side. All of the previous reviews I had read were correct about the close location of the beach. It took about 5 minutes to walk to the beach access across the street and then we were usually the only ones on this stretch of beach. It always seemed a bit cooler on this side of the island which was nice since we were there in July. Not only were there kayaks or paddleboards to use, but they also had a variety of pool toys and beach toys for the kids.The pool was clean and warm and a perfect way to cool down after a hot day on the beach.

The owners were incredibly prompt and kind when we had to email questions and it was a very easy checkout procedure - though we didn't want to leave! Based on the pictures we were taking we have already shared this property with other families who love it and we are planning on coming again next year. This upper apartment slept our family of 4 well, but our children are under 10 years. The lower apartment may be better for larger families.

Cocoa Beach was quiet in July and this south end of the beach was practically our own. The water was warm and free from visible things that would have scared my little kids! The location of this property was also great in that you were a 10 minute drive or less from the shopping area of Cocoa Beach and only an hour from Orlando. It also was a good location to travel south and check out other beaches and nature centers along the ocean. If you come during the months of June - Oct you can contact local Sea Turtle Preservation Society chapters and join their volunteers on an early morning beach walk to hope to see sea turtles during this nesting season. You need to do this with a licensed group but it happens all along the beach that is 5 minutes from this property. What a fantastic location. We were able to watch as baby sea turtles came out of their nest and made their way to the ocean. An incredible trip and this property was the perfect spot to call home for a few days.

Two night mini vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband, myself and our 13 yr old son found this place to be perfect for our mini vacation. We had the pool all to ourselves, it was a very short walk to the beach, and the use of the paddle boards and kayaks were great! We took them out and saw a LOT of dolphins. The apartment had everything we needed and was comfortable for the three of us. They even had two boogie boards we could use, sand toys, pool floats, plenty of towels, etc...The only negatives are that the walls are thin so you can hear the guest next door and the shower is very small. I am tiny and had a hard time using it especially because you cannot adjust the shower head to not spray in your face. Overall it was a great stay for a great price. The owners were excellent and checked in through e mail making sure everything was ok. Thank you!

Cozy vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Nice cozy place right on the bay. Had a wonderful view watching the dolphins. Could fish, kayak or go across the street to the beach. Loved the place and it was nicely stocked with everything you needed in the kitchen. Plan to return in near future.

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We could of not asked for a better location! The house and property were beautiful. The house was very cute and cozy! The beach is a quick walk across the street and very few people on the beach. The location was away from all the crowds of Cocoa beach but still close enough to everything. Very relaxing. The owners are wonderful too!! Very helpful and very quick to respond to any & all questions. We look forward to returning. Thank you for opening up your home to us!!!

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for the month of March 2018 and was very pleased with the location, the property's furnishings, and the sporting equipment available. The owner's were very responsive when we had questions, as were the cleaning and maintenance crews. It was great to have an onsite laundry. The ability to sit on your deck and enjoy the sunsets was amazing. There were several restaurants within walking distance, our favorite being Taco City (do not miss their Taco Tuesday specials!!). There were also plenty of restaurants within 5 miles - our best recommendations would be Goombay"s to the south on A1A, Simply Delicious Bakery north in Cocoa Beach Village, and Long Doggers in Cocoa Beach on Route 520.

As others have mentioned, there could be more soundproofing between the upstairs units. Most renters in the other unit were very conscious of this and acted accordingly, as we always tried to do. When one issue arose, the owners responded very quickly.

We loved the unit so much we tried to book for March 2019 but alas, someone had beat us to it :(

Incredible Amenities!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My son came in from Colorado for a satellite launch at the Cape and luckily found this Great little 1 bedroom that would easily accommodate the two of us. Luckily it was available for the two nights we would be in Coco. The apartment was VERY clean, with an incredible view of the intercoastal from the deck. The beach is just across the street, maybe a 4-5 minute walk. They offered amenities such as a gas barbeque grill, paddleboards, kayaks and a pool....what more could want!?!?!?! Will without doubt be looking into this property if and when I plan another extended stay at the beach!!!! If you want fantastic seafood don't hesitate to check out Grills, there are two of them in the area. Ate there once and HAD to go back a second time!!!!
