Jennifer W Tanner purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jennifer W Tanner chose Florida

1. Convenient location to Orlando - only an hour drive and most of which is interstate highway 2. Convenient location to central Florida attractions - only an hour drive to Disney and Universal parks and only a half hour to Kennedy Space center. 3. Not your typical Florida east coast Florida beach - peace and quiet because of limited public access and nearly 8 miles of protected beaches to the north. 4. Spectacular view - an incredible view of the ocean, sand and pool from every room in the condo.

What makes this condo unique

It is unlike any other location on the east cost. Sandpiper Towers is located directly south of Patrick Air Force Base (less than a .25 mile). The entire beach along the air force base is protected, nearly 8 miles, so it makes for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. It is very different from what is typically advertised for Florida beaches such as Cocoa or Daytona. There are no crowds or cars driving on the beach, so if you are looking for peace and quite, this is definitely the spot. At the same time it is conveniently located to local shoping and dining, as well a short 8 mile drive to Cocoa if you want to see some of the local attractions or 7 miles to Melbourne if you want to experience one of the local trendy shopping areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed out stay at your condo.  The upgrades you made are very nice.  The weather was perfect.  We love how quiet and peaceful it is there.  The people are so nice.  We will come back again.  It was a very relaxing vacation.  We loved our walks on the beach and swimming in the pool and ocean

Is There a Better View -sand, ocean and pool views!
average rating of 4.9117646 based on 40 reviews

Amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in an older building - nothing new or fancy. Very quiet, very safe, very comfortable. Great for our family.

Kayaking in Manatee Cove and out on the Indian River were highlights for us.

The view was beautiful!

The beach was clean and you could walk for miles in either direction.

There are rocks in the surf line as you enter the water so be aware.

The pool area is well maintained.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of our home. We appreciate the kind words and would love to host you again soon. Just want to clarify the word rocks for any future guests. The beach is flat sand, but sometimes some smooth coral is exposed depending on if there was a storm that washed sand from the beach etc. When the tide is out it is easy to see if flat or not. I am happy to email photos to show visual pictures if this comment is a concern. Myself and my 3 children as well as other guests and condo residents all walk through the sand, boogie board and swim in the water. Thank you again for staying! Jennifer

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week at the beach. Jennifer was always very quick to reply to our emails / txts or phone calls.

We had two college students with us and they really enjoyed just sitting around for a week. They did rent jet skis nearby along with all of us going on a airboat ride. Just about every type of restaurant you could imagine is within 10 miles. Shopping as well. Very clean, and quiet beach. Everybody we saw both in the condo complex and on the beach all greeted us with smiles. The unit is very spacious a an excellent value. Sometimes photos "lie" with regard to room size. These rooms were all larger than I thought they were based on just the photos. After talking to Jennifer, I got the impression that a kitchen remodel is coming soon although the microwave, fridge, and cook-top all appeared to be pretty up-to-date already. When we are going to be back in this area in the future, we will definitely rent this unit again.

Great location, great value -- nice updates in a dated building

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and wouldn't have any qualms about coming back. The oceanfront location with private beach and pool was ideal for us. The overall value was excellent and our non-standard arrival and departure dates were accepted without question, which was greatly appreciated.

The building itself is clearly one of the older ones on the beach (a composite picture in the lobby may show that it was actually the first!), so it's definitely dated. It seems the lobby/hallways are not air conditioned, but the condo definitely is. As for the grounds, there was an on-site maintenance guy who was cleaning up around the pool deck each morning, so that was always well taken care of. The beach directly behind the property is fairly short (actually non-existent at high tide), so we went around the corner each day, with no issues.

The first impression once inside the condo is just awesome - you're greeted with a view straight out to the ocean through the sliding doors. It's great to walk in and say "Woah!" The inside of the condo was clearly updated in some places, but not all. The decor is tastefully done (not overly beachy/Floridian). There is a pleasant mix of newer and older furniture and nothing looks out of place or overused (except maybe the couch). The beds were comfortable (the king was softer, the double more firm) and the pillows were great.

The bathrooms have nice, newer fixtures. A few small touches (like shower caddies/soap dishes, bath mats, new curtain rings, etc.) would have gone a long way to making them a bit more useful.

There was a nice selection of beach toys in the hall closet. This was a pleasant surprise, since it was something we hadn't thought of before getting there. There is an outside shower on the pool deck, which is also very nice for cleaning those toys off before heading back inside.

There were a few areas that could definitely use some attention (the ceiling in the master bath had some cracks/peeling plaster, the microwave, the bi-fold doors that kept coming out of their tracks), but nothing at all major.

The cable box/interface is ridiculously bad. You can't tell what the stations are (unless you want to decipher or happen to know the WOFLHD is the local Fox affiliate) and there is no guide to tell you what's on. That was not a big deal for us as we didn't watch much TV - but we wanted to check in on a few football games and that was pretty painful

Owner's Response: William-thank you for taking your time to review our property. I am so glad you enjoyed the condo and the great views it offered. You and I have spoken several times on the phone but I just need to address the comments made here. I need to clarify that there is a Brighthouse TV guide showing all channels located in the tv cabinet. We recently added another laminated guide and placed in a different spot in the tv cabinet just to make sure it can be located on either shelf you look. The microwave in the kitchen is older but works perfect. I bought a brand new one that can be used as well if you prefer. We have a new kenmore oven and kenmore refrigerator, cuisinart coffee maker, kitchen aid knife set all new. The building is older but we do our best at providing up to date appliances, high end pillow top mattresses, plasma tv's and high speed secured wi-fi. I took a walk through the bathrooms and found all the items in good condition that you mentioned were not there but went ahead and replaced them such as shower curtain rings, toilet roll holder, trash can, soap dispenser and tooth brush holder. We want our guests to easily find those so hopefully they are more visible now. We also just redid all the flooring changing from carpet to wood laminate. We appreciate you sharing how we can make our condo even more guest friendly. We do our best to continually upgrade as we enjoy our guests coming back remarking on the new items that have changed since their last visit. It is important having a beach rental to continually upgrade and we think we do a good job at that. Thank you for wanting to return again we look forward to having you back. Sincerely, Jennifer

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I took our 3 daughters age range from 9-15. We had such a wonderful experience! Jennifer was amazing with accommodating all our needs and was super helpful with anything we needed. The facility was clean and the condo had everything we needed. The beach was so relaxing and it was not crowded at all, felt like we were on a private beach at times. All the people staying in the condo were very polite and we had no problems with anyone or anything. Our kids had a wonderful time also with the beach and the pool. We'll definitely make sure we come back and with this being our first experience at the beach is was all we could have hoped for and asked for!! Also anything you need from the store is right there.

Wonderful condo, nearly private beach!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay! The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. The condo was clean, comfortable, and had great TV and Wifi for being indoors. Access to the beach was very quick and easy, with our section of the beach only having 10 people in it. We collected tons of shells and did lots of sun and play during our 4 days there. The owners left us some restaurant recommendations, all of which were amazing! Grocery store very close, 7-11 across the street. It doesn't get better than this. We will be returning to this condo for sure!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. Condo was very comfortable. The views were breathtaking. We walked the beach every morning. Loved waking to the sound of the surf every morning.

Many, many thanks.
