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.

  • 5 of 5

Less than two blocks to the ocean, right on the river, quiet, ...perfect. Small (freshly painted) apartment had all we needed. We didn't cook, so can't report on kitchen facilities , but king bed & foldout sofa were comfortable for 3 adult sized people (linens for couch in drawer under king bed, we didn't realize that) Definitely a drive to get to activities in town. Bathroom had entry from both main area and from bedroom, plenty of storage, if not a little dark for applying makeup. The outdoors was marvelous - deck, pool and waterfront picnic table were very relaxing, kayaks and paddleboards were nice to take out on the supercalm water (lifevests are beside the house, you'll see what I mean when you're there). Heck, dolphins even swam by while I was sitting out there! Contact with owners was easy before our stay, contacted housekeeper once while there to find out about sheets & lifevests & got immediate response. Note there's a larger apartment below, and one right beside this unit - VERY awesome if you've got family/friends going on holiday too!

Quiet Sunset Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a well done property. Its on an immense bay. Protected from the noise of traffic, but you can still hear the surf. 4 houses from AIA, right at public access to the beach.

We really appreciate Julian and his great communication with us. Very comfortable king bed. The apartment is well laid out with plenty of storage and all that is needed, especially great seating on the private deck and by the shared pool. We came for 2 nights, but easily could stay all week.

This is an older building, with several units that share the pool and yard. Private balcony w Grill and eating area. There are kayaks and paddle boards and fishing area for guests use. Very nice. Quiet is maintained and people are friendly.

Appartment with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wunderful stay (1 week) in this appartment. The location is just perfect for relaxing as well as sightseeing (it is max. 1 hour drive to Orlando, 1/2 h to Cape Canaveral). You can have best of both sides of Cocoa Beach: you live on the calm side with the view on the Banana River and go only 200 m across the street to the Atlantic Ocean with its long and empty beaches (unfortunately there is a lot of traffic at some time and you need to be quick to cross the street).

The appartment is very clean and staffed with everything you need. We liked the style, it is modern and beach/surf oriented. You can have breakfast while sitting at the kitchen bar or outside on the big balcony and watch the dolphines swimming nearby - the view is amazing.

We also enjoyed the possibility to use the kayaks or SUPs on the Banana River. Having an outdoor pool is a good option as the Atlantic Ocean was a little bit cold in December.

You can use the washer and dryer of the unit wich reduces your luggage and leaves more space in the suitcase for shopping :=)

Ron Jon Surfshop is only about 10 min to drive and a must see.

We liked our stay very much and would love to come back. Julian - the owner - is very friendly and replies very quick if you have any question.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is small, but comfortable, with all the basics for an enjoyable stay. It has a nice large deck for cooking and eating, which provides nice additional space. Our time here was quiet and peaceful. The owner provides detailed and thorough information on the unit, and is responsive to questions. We enjoyed the yard area along the Banana river, where my 11 yr old daughter played in the pool while I relaxed in a good quality lounge chair. The SUP's and kayaks are a very nice bonus for a quick and easy paddle on the river. On a few separate occasions we saw dolphins swim up within a few feet of the property. The unit could use some better lighting options in the bedroom for reading, but otherwise, it's a lovely place to stay for two people. I would definitely go back.

Indian Rocks Beach, Fl

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!!!
