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 Florida Central Atlantic Coast

Dolphin Bay is perfectly located between the Banana River and the Atlantic Ocean.

We fell in love with this place.

What makes this apartment unique

The garden 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.

Truly Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet staying on the Banana River. Truly loved having coffee on the porch in the morning while seeing an occasional Dolphin and having wine in the evening as the sun was setting. We took the kayaks out and saw dolphins up close as they were feeding along a seawall in a canal a short distance north on the river. The beach was only a block away and was a much more secluded and quiet spot, as opposed to the crowds that are near the pier area. We enjoyed the pool after kayaking and days on the beach. The location is perfect, the apartment was equipped with everything we needed to have most of our meals. We had no issues parking our Rav4 SUV in the assigned parking space, we were not sure why the previous reviewer had an issue with this. Julian was very easy to rent with and refunded our deposit almost immediately after our stay. Would definitely recommend this place!

I use HomeAway to travel at least 15 times annually and I have never had an easier renting experience than dealing with Julian. He was incredibly prompt in responding and very kind and accommodating. The unit was precious and the view was breath taking!!! Short walk to beach and the pool is perfect after a long day at the beach.

We saw a couple slithering visitors in the yard, but they didn't bother us none.

I would reccomend to anyone wanting to relax for a weekend or extended stay.

We will be back for sure!!!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for about 3 weeks this summer. The unit was as described--- the pool was great and inflatables were located on the side of the house. Two kayaks and paddle boards were also available and you could literally "cast off" right into the Banana River from the backyard. The ocean is right across the street and the beach is never crowded. I loved taking walks along the shore taking in all the wildlife and the ocean sounds.

It was wonderful!!!

Overall, this place is great for a short stay for a couple or a couple with small children. It would really be tight (495 sq. ft.) for 4 adults. The owner does make the most of the space and it is decorated with a cute "beachy" decor. However, we do have some suggestions: on site management would be great--- if there is an issue, the renter must contact the owner , who lives in Europe (time delay). During our stay we encountered the following problems: dishwasher didn't work so he emailed the direction book and suggested that we trouble shoot, after a heavy storm, the ceiling in the living room leaked onto the table and floor ---(I immediately let him know and several hours later he replied in a text -- yes, I am aware. There is a dip in the ceiling. It's a big job to fix.). The parking spot for this unit is difficult to navigate and we have a small car. You have to drive onto the grass to shimmy into it and often garbage cans are in your way. It's the tenant's responsibility to take and remove the cans to and from the curb several times during the week. Something else to remember ---you're sharing the house with two other families and the house is not soundproof. The two units on the top share a common wall and it is just a wall. You can hear kids crying, people talking, not to mention a temper tantrum or two. The outside of the house needs improvement. You start to notice these things when you're there for 3 weeks. This house would be great to rent if one family rents all three units.

Owner's Response: Hello Donna, Thank you very much for your detailed review. It is great that you liked the location and the apartment. Also thanks for the constructive feedback on things to improve which we always take on board. Some comments: Yes we do live in Germany. However when you look at our response rates we always try to give feedback on time. I think with many vacation homes the owners do not live on site. We do have emergency support by our handyman and concierge service. The contact numbers are given to you in advance but are also available in the apartment. Our handyman checked the dishwasher. It was working fine again after he cleaned the drain filter. He is also fixing the leak. Thanks once again for your suggestions and we hope to have you back for a next vacation. Julian

We spent three night at this wonderful property. The apartment was just as described. We had everything we needed and more. The views of the river where beautiful and the beach was just across the street. We had the best of both worlds. My daughters enjoyed the use of the sup. We will definitely stay here next year. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely apartment.

Small, close to beach, low cost

  • 4 of 5

The property was just as it was represented, small but adequate. The interior was clean and well maintained. The exterior patio could have used some maintenance repairs. We stayed 3 nights and loved the area. The beach across the street was where we spent most of our time.

I would recommend this property if you want close to beach on a budget. The view of the Banana River is nice!

My husband and I went to Cocoa Beach for the weekend getaway. We found this apartment online and we love what we saw. We went there and found it much better than we expected. The clean, neat, cozy apartment, the beautiful sunset and quiet morning. Walk cross A1A is the beach. We love it. We will go back again.
