About Kari Ruder

We are originally from Wisconsin, relocating to Florida in 2000 to avoid the harsh winters! We love to travel and appreciate the desire for a comfortable, affordable vacation and have worked hard to make our condo a relaxing and beachy getaway for ourselves and our guests! We are available to answer questions or see to issues if need be.

Kari Ruder purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kari Ruder chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We love the location on a quiet street right across from the beach. Our complex has a nice pool, picnic areas, friendly neighbors, onsite laundry, and the condo itself is big with plenty of natural sunlight. It's a great place to go for a walk or ride your bike, yet convenient to everything you need.

What makes this condo unique

Since we use the condo ourselves from time to time, we include some fun extras like beach chairs, a blender, new flat screen tvs, books, games, and a few of our favorite beach skin care products for your use! We ask you to respectfully enjoy the contents of the condo.

Awesome Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo for a three month period while I had an internship in the area. I loved the condo it was very clean and perfect size for myself. The condo has everything you need for a trip with all kitchen utensils, plates, bowls supplied for you, in the closet there are many games and beach activities waiting for you to use. The location is great being just over a minute walk from the beach. It's also perfect distance from downtown cocoa beach for more tourist and fun activities. I really have no negative comments about my stay and if I came back down to this location I would choose this again in a heart beat. Kari and Sam are great! Thank you for being accommodating for my lengthy stay!

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for about 2.5 months while doing an internship at local rocket company. I really could not have asked for a better condo or better landlords. The Ruders took great care of me and the condo.

Probably the best part about living there was being so close (walking distance) from the beach. Also, the condo is very close to all of the attractions in the Cape and Cocoa. The condo was very clean and had no issues with bugs or anything of that nature. 10/10 Would stay again.

A Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very bright, open and clean. It met our needs and we really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is well equipped except for the lack of steak knives. As it is a small kitchen, there is not a lot of room for food storage in the cupboards but on the otherrhand some of the space is taken up by the dishwasher which was a definite plus.

The bed was comfortable and there is plenty of storage space in the bedroom for clothing. The bathroom also has plenty of storage space for towels etc.

The extra things that were not included which would have been of benefit to us were: an iron and ironing board, a hair dryer, a DVD and CD player. The pool and proximity to the beach are wonderful. In addition, the neighbours are warm and welcoming.

I would recommend this unit to others as a very good spot to stay and an excellent value for the money.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and feedback! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and found our condo comfortable. We have been searching for a cabinet for the kitchen area that would work for food storage and we will get some steak knives as well. Thanks!

Great time in Cape Canaveral

  • 5 of 5

My family of four enjoyed the beach, especially the Orion launch. Had fun at the Kennedy Space Center. We visited several restaurants in the area, and enjoyed flights at Florida Beer Company. Saw a manatee at the gazebo on the West end of Buchanan Street. Saw some sea turtles at the fish cleaning station at the Port near Jetty Park. The cruise ships are very convenient, which is why we chose this condo. We took our very first cruise to the Bahamas which was a fun way to spend 4 days. Went on the Cocoa Beach Pier and enjoyed watching the surfers and had a drink at the bar at the end of pier. Fossil lovers: don't miss the Dinosaur Store. The weather ranged from 67 to 80 during the day the entire month of December: perfect! The murphy bed and the queen bed in the condo were very comfortable. We made several local friends on the patio by the pool...that made it feel more like home. The condo had everything we needed to be comfortable. Thanks for the stay!

Retired Wisconsinites

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and well equipped. We appreciated the cable and flat screen TVs in the livingroom and bedroom. We also had consistently good WiFi connection. The bathroom was a good size with a large shower. The appliances were either new or in good condition. It was just a walk across the street to the beach access. There are lots of good restaurants within a mile or two. We had something that needed repaired and the owner came very quickly to fix it. The owners are pet lovers, so we were able to bring our small dog with us, which was an important factor in our decision to stay there. The price was right and it was a quiet atmosphere. We would certainly recommened this rental property to friends and relatives.

The condo is located within a 1 to 60 minute drive from just about every activity and restaurant cuisine! A guest book with information about local attractions and restaurants is provided in the condo. Within about 30 minutes we have a great zoo, indoor ice skating, various wildlife viewing and conservation areas, and much more. Walk across the street to the beach to see a live rocket launch!
