Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Seacrest Beach - Sandcastles 706, Direct Ocean

Great oceanfront unit also see our ocean view unit #396215

You get great views of the beach from this top floor ocean front unit. The 50 inch tv w/blu-ray in the living room is great if you decide you want to spend an evening just relaxing or watching a game. There is also 42'' tv in the master bedroom and a 39' in the spare bedroom for your viewing pleasure and all of the tv's have a DVD player. Wi-fi is also available if you want to search for local attractions or want to keep up with what's going on at home or on Facebook. There is also free long distance telephone service.

You will be able to enter the unit with a 4 digit code that you can specify so that there is no worry about tracking down your keys upon arrival. Please remember that check in is at 3 p.m. and your code will not work until shortly before that time on the day of arrival and the code will deactivate shortly after your 10 a.m. check out time. This is for the security of all of our guests.

Cocoa Beach is a great family friendly town and Sandcastles is the best weekly rental complex in Cocoa Beach. We are an hour from the Orlando attractions and 20 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center. The Brevard Zoo is near by as is the Cocoa Sports Complex. The pool, hot tub, sauna, community grill and tennis court are available if you want to take a break from the beach. The Lori Wilson park just down the beach is a great place for a picnic over looking the ocean or for a walk in the 'jungle'. The Cocoa Beach Pier is about two miles north with great food and excitement and Port Canaveral is just about 5 miles north. There you can see cruise ships as they depart or arrive back in port from several great water front restaurants if you time it right. There is a Publix and Winn Dixie just down the street and Merritt Island is just across the causeway and they have a Walmart, and a mall with a 16 screen theater. There are lots of local and chain restaurants to fill any dining desire. Just past Merritt Island you will find Cocoa which has a number of quaint shops and restaurants that you can enjoy.

Ron Jon's surf shop is right down the street as well as the Cocoa Beach surf shop and both offer lots in interesting beach related merchandise as well as rentals of beach equipment and surf lessons.

There is a gambling boat that launches out of Port Canaveral if that is an activity that you enjoy. The port also offers deep sea fishing charters for individual or group outings. The para sailing boat that calls the port home is also great fun.

If you enjoy a round of golf the Cocoa Beach Country Club (public despite the name) has a course and they have an Olympic size pool as well.

We offer last minute discounts if the unit is available 4 weeks before your visit there is a 5% discount, 3 weeks before your visit there is a 10% discount, 2 weeks before your visit dates there is a 20% discount, 1 week before the visit date there is a 30% discount.

There will be a starter supply of shampoo, soap, bathroom tissue, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and dish liquid. Please note that you will likely need to purchase an additional supply of these items during your stay.

If this unit is booked and you can't find another ocean front unit or if you prefer an ocean view unit in the same family friendly complex check out our other unit which is VRBO # 396215.

About Philip Gilkison

We are from KY and bought this condo in June of 2013 with hopes of becoming 'Snow Birds' someday but for now I work as a nursing home administrator and my wife, who is a nurse is also a teacher, teaching middle school special education, God bless her. We plan to visit Cocoa Beach 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 16 year old son loves the beach and the pool. He also loves to kayak. Our daughter is 34 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?).

Philip Gilkison purchased this condo in 2013

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 seventh floor ocean front location is second to none for ocean/beach views. 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'.

Excellent location on the 7th floor of a 7 story condo on Cocoa Beech.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean, nicely laid out with comfortable, up to date furnishings. The only thing missing was a corkscrew.

On a return to Cocoa I would rebook if the unit was available.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your visit. We try to make the unit as comfortable as possible. Sorry about the cork screw, that is not something that I forgot but something that has gone missing evidently. The next time that you stay with us and you find something missing, let me know and I will have someone replace the item or you can pick it up and I will gladly reimburse you.

Updated Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed all over Cocoa Beach during the past 6 years, and this condo was by far the nicest we have been to. The entire unit was updated with nice furniture, countertops, tile, and paint. We were impressed to even have a Blu Ray player in the living room. The views are breathtaking from the 7th floor of the building. And the overall stay was one of the simplest we have had. Phillip was a joy to rent from, as he answered any and all questions in w timely manner as well. Needless to say, we will be trying to rent this property next year.

THE GREATEST VACATION I COULD HAVE EVER DREAMED OF!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a Birthday/Anniversary/Wedding/Second Honeymoon trip for two. I could have never imagined that I would live in such a dream condo on the beach for 8 days and 7 nights. I'm so grateful for the experience and for the owner. We stayed during construction on the elevator. Let's just say when we got home everyone said we lost weight lol. This place was so worth it and we drove 1056 miles to get there. We left on Friday morning the day after my husband's 33rd Birthday. We got there on Saturday around 7pm Florida's time (1 hour ahead of our home time). We walked through the door and I couldn't focus on nothing but getting to the ocean. The blinds where closed so the suspense was there. When I say I walked out to HEAVEN it was amazing the sound from the ocean is still ringing in my ears and was so awesome. The balcony is also huge and the patio set is great with high chairs. The condo itself is gorgeous!! The pictures on the website are gorgeous themselves, but when you get there you see that the trim is white and has a beautiful antique feel to it. The doors and closet doors all been updated and are white and everything just looks so nice. The master bedroom was amazing, there are so many chairs placed so perfectly in the room. The entry into the master bedroom is also great. Overall the condo is huge. The kitchen was breath taking. I don't really cook and I didn't cook at all during our stay but it was nice to look at and take care of. I found myself always cleaning and washing and making sure it stayed perfect because it is perfect. Especially since this was the place I got ready for my wedding in. We did a vow renewal on the beach on our 4 year anniversary 9/21. We got married in the court house so this was my big day 4 years later lol. The best thing about our wedding this time is that we where already on our honeymoon in cocoabeach with the ultimate honeymoon suite. The price compared to a hotel was unbeatable. However, we did get the construction price but even still the regular rate is still unbeatable compared to a hotel. That's why if we start planning our trip for next year now we can work the price into our budget. As for location, your in the perfert spot. There's so much to do in cocoabeach. Definitely take advantage of the helicopter tours because you can see everything. Even the condo building which is cool to see where you really are. Overall this was a great experience and we definitely will be back next year Lord willing. Thank you!
