We just came back from an awesome two-month vacation at this condo. Everything is as described in the website and Mike, the owner, was very helpful. Tenants are very friendly. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath corner condo on the fifth floor with a wraparound balcony, which provides sun all day long. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the people on the beach and also saw some dolphins. There are plenty of linens. In the kitchen, it is fully stocked – two blenders, mini food processor, regular coffee maker and Keurig coffee maker, teapot, crockpot, very nice non-stick pots and pans, stoneware dishes, picnic dishes, toaster, toaster oven, microwave, and so much more, in addition to a pantry right off the kitchen. I just loved the vanity area in the master bedroom. It was nice to have the laundry room right in the condo. The building also has grocery carts in a room on the ground floor for your groceries or your luggage – a big help!
Cocoa Beach Pier was only 3 blocks away and we would walk to the pier for lunch (their Pier Burger was great) or walk out on the pier (there is a $2 charge to walk out on the pier where many fish, but, if you eat at the restaurant, save your receipt and you do not have to pay). We also walked to the pier from the beach.
There are many restaurants in the area. Some of our favorites were: Brano’s Italian Grill (nothing is fried), Nolan’s Irish Pub (owner came to our table and greeted us, hubby had shepherd’s pie and I had the shepherd’s pie wrap - very delicious and they have many events going on), Florida Seafood – wonderful, Pita in Paradise – our first time trying a gyro. In addition to the many stores in the Cocoa Beach area, there is the Merritt Square Mall a few miles away – we liked the Nature’s Table food in the mall.
The area is lovely. We took many walks on the beach or right outside the condo in the residential area. There is also a lane for bicycles on the street, which many took advantage of. Cape Canaveral is just a few miles down the street. We like the area at the Cove – restaurants, watching the pelicans or the fishing boats coming in with their catches. You can also see the cruise lines leaving the Cape Canaveral area.
We also attended the Key Lime Festival at the area beside the Cove.
We just loved the condo and the surrounding area.
