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 Cocoa Beach

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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable for our family of four. Enjoyed the pool and being near the water. One highlight was seeing dolphins several times during our stay.

4 night stay at Dolphin Bay.

  • 5 of 5

The apparent, no. 201, top left as you look at the picture, was very nice, clean and comfortable. The upstairs sun deck area was well equipped with chairs, table, sun shade umbrella and gas BBQ. The kitchen was well equipped with cooker, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and fridge freezer. The only thing missing was a kettle for us Brits to make a cup of tea. The pool was lovely with westerly views over the Banana River and sunsets (weather permitting). There were two kayaks and two paddle boards with life jackets to use as well. The garden was nice with a Tiki Bar on one side and seating on wooden recliners. We saw lots of dolphins and manatees swimming up and down the river, each morning. The beach (Atlantic) was a short 5 min walk, and the sea was warm at this time of year (late May / early June). The property was close to all central Florida attractions, Kennedy Space Centre was 20 mins, Disney and universal Studios about 1 hr. Overall a great place to stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Dolphin Bay for 6 days. I have nothing but great things to say. Its perfect for any type of trip. A romantic getaway, families, girls trip. Etc! We spent most of our time on the property rather than at the beach. Which is only right across the street. There is a lot to see right out your window. The kayaks and stand up boards were a nice bonus. This place is worth EVERY PENNY! The shower could use some more water pressure but who's complaining? :) We will be back next year most definitely!

Our month long stay at Dolphin Bay exceeded our expectations. Yes, the walls are thin and the yard needs some TLC but the location is fantastic and the sunsets were breathtaking. If we had any concerns they were addressed immediately by Julian. We enjoyed watching the dolphins put on a show right in front of the condo. Overall our experience was extremely satisfying and we look forward to return next year.

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.
