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.

Wonderful home away from home!
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 :(
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!!!!
We had a wonderful stay and could not have asked for a more peaceful and perfect place to spend a quick and quiet vacation. I was in Cocoa Beach for my graduation and needed a place that I could finish my homework, reflect on my time spent in school, and refocus my life after graduation. This place was perfect for all of that. My favorite time was kayaking on the Banana River with the provided kayaks and exploring the shoreline both north and south of us. Everything was clean and ready for our stay and we had no issues during our time there. When the router wasn't working, we immediately received a response and it was fixed in enough time for me to complete my homework and other necessary business online. Although we could hear our neighbors while indoors, that is to be expected while staying in the same building, it was fun to share the pool and yard with them. If I am ever in the area again, I will book my trip to stay here; the owners and their crew are incredibly attentive and ready to provide when needed. Thank you for a great stay.
Great Time on Banana River
We stayed in the one bedroom unit on the top floor. Everything was clean and well stocked when we arrived. The kids loved the pool, kayaks, and fishing from the back yard. Overall we were very happy with everything and Julian was very helpful.
Cozy apartment with morning dolphin sightings!
This one bedroom, one bath place was a perfect little cozy place for myself and my dog. Everything was clean and in great order when we arrived. I was a little nervous about parking my big suv in the carport area, but got the hang of it after a day. The kitchen was well equipped which made making meals a breeze (hint you can do Walmart grocery and do free pick up the same day which was awesome!) I didn’t realize that the washer and dryer were downstairs at first, but it didn’t turn out to be an issue. The apartment was about 15 minutes from Ron Jon, so it was quiet but close enough to go see everything too! Just a heads up for anyone bringing their dog—� there’s not much to do in Cocoa Beach with a dog, so you’ll have to find activities to do elsewhere! Overall, the apartment was great! I know where I’ll be staying if I’m visiting Cocoa Beach again!
Also, big thanks to Julian for checking on us that we made it in safely!
Loved the location, on the river, beautiful view.
We loved it! The interior is not large but it's equipped with everything you need and we didn't spend much time inside anyway. Absolutely loved the location and having a view of the river. We enjoyed kayaking and just gazing out at the water from the deck. Dolphins swim up close. It is not in the touristy part of Cocoa Beach, which we liked. It was perfect for our wants and needs and I'd definitely stay there again (I wish I owned it!). I've already told many people about it. :) Reasons for not giving it a 5 star rating are the small shower and because it's not new and sleek like some people may want, but for the kind of rental and ambiance I wanted it gets 5 stars.
Cocoa Beach with its gorgeous beaches and the pleasant water tempertures offers ideal conditions for all types of water sports or just for relaxing. Cocoa Beach offers an extensive variety of restaurants and entertainment. Among others one must mention the numerous golf courses, the Pier and the many shops such as the biggest Ron-Jon-surfshop in the US. Because Orlando is only a 45 minute drive away the world famous theme parks such as Word-Disney-World and the Universal-Studios and the huge shopping malls are within easy reach. On the horizon you can see the world famous Kennedy- Space-Center which allows you to watch all the rocket launches right from our apartment. Obviously, you can also visit the impressive complex of the Kennedy- Space-Center with its history of manned space travel. Since Cape Canaveral with its huge cruise ship harbour is only a 20 minute drive away be our guest before or after your cruise. And for all car maniacs: Daytona Beach with its world famous car races is only a 1 hour drive away.
