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.

quite simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is my new go to place, from my initial dealing with the owner & meeting them on arrival , every aspect was brilliant.

The appt is as advertised, and is situated on a quiet side road & is very easy to find.

And when you open the blinds to get your first look over the river & a dolphin swims by, you know you have made the right choice.

Everything you need is supplied, the tv even has all the sports channels also, a great addition.

We used the supplied kayaks & the owner was on hand to help.

everything else has been said in other reviews,

i'm already plotting my return

Perfect for a long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as the description says. The location was awesome. The Banana River was literally in the backyard just beyond the well kept pool. We were pleasantly surprised to find out the owners were there vacationing in the other apartment. They were very helpful and friendly.

They even showed us the manatee and dolphins that were putting on a show one morning, as well as helping us launch the kayaks the following morning so we could get closer to the beautiful dolphins and the manatees. Being that close is truly an experience we will never forget!

Check out our photos and you will see :)

Great place. Glad I didn't book a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom apartment was perfect for us with 2 small children. It is a very short walk to the beach, although with small children one time it took us about 10 minutes to cross the A1A. We ended up having more fun in the yard on the river side. The kids had fun in the pool. I had fun with the kayak etc. Should have brought a fishing rod. It was nice to sit on the balcony in the evening to enjoy the sunset and then the moon and stars. We were also treated to a spectacular show of bio-luminescence (look it up). It was one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen. Essentially anything that moved in the water glowed green. The fish provided the show with 3 dolphins providing the grand finale about 3 feet from us on the shore. (Show starts around 11pm in late summer, from what I've read).

The unit is tastefully furnished but very Ikea. I wouldn't call the kitchen equipment fully loaded but good enough for a short stay. The king size bed was comfortable although I didn't care for the pillows. I thought the $85 cleaning fee was a bit rich but the place was pretty clean when we arrived. The internet was a bit weak especially for YouTube or Netflix.

Overall, we had a great stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. My wife is already bugging me to go back.

Phenomenally Splentastic!!! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot wait to go back - with our kiddos this time! The view off the back balcony is so gorgeous, and we saw a dolphin our first morning :)!!! We enjoyed the kayak (be careful...it definitely has a leak) and paddle boards each early morning, and then took a jaunt across the street to play in the ocean each afternoon. While crossing the main road induces slight trepidation, the rewarding sounds of the waves greeting the sand make it undeniably worthwhile! Don't forget to head down to the river after dark to glimpse the bioluminescent plankton swimming just under the surface. The calm river water out back is perfect for paddle-boarding and kayaking, and there is a pool as well, although we did not utilize it.

The apartment itself is cozy and well-laid out with ample room in the living area for lounging about watching college football on the provided television service :). There is a window from the kitchen into the living area so that the cook-of-the-day needn't feel isolated from the family. The wifi works well-enough in most of the space, but we weren't overly concerned as isn't half the point of a vacation getting away from all the tedious obligations pulling you back to a desk?

We would recommend this property to anyone...provided they don't want to travel to Dolphin Bay at the same time as we... :)

Nice apartment and amazing view

  • 4 of 5

The apartment unit itself was very nice and beachy feeling and the view from the back balcony was amazing. The bottle opener with the catch "bucket" below it was pure genius! lol The owners were very helpful with questions before our stay and called during our 2nd day to check on us (after some confusion upon checking in). The distance to the beach was great (1/2 block then across the street) and it's located on the quiet end of Cocoa Beach so it was perfect for a couples getaway. My only complaint with the property as a whole was it needs landscaping work...badly. Some parts hadn't been weeded in quite some time and would improve the look of the property tremendously as it looks very overgrown right now. The lawn has been mowed but that appears to be the only type of yard work done this summer. The pool is well kept and clean, our unit was very clean as well. On a side note....the orange kayak takes on water so be careful if taking that one out....bring a cup! :) But would definitely stay here again.....and we did see several dolphins in the Banana River swimming by!

We loved being able to launch our paddleboards from the back yard. The bioluminescence was amazing and the pool was perfect. We would definitely go back.
