This condo was perfect for our family of six plus a new one! Our son and daughter-in-law brought our 8 week old grandson and we were able to live comfortably in this spacious 3 bedroom beach condo with a pool right outside our door. It was a great bonding time for all of us. It was well stocked with plenty of amenities - beach chairs, towels and toys, all small kitchen appliances, including a washer/dryer which was a huge asset. We will certainly try to make this an annual family vacation. The reservation process was easy as pie!! Great overall experience!!
Loved this unit. One of the best units I've rented in almost 20 years of visiting Cocoa Beach. Plenty of room for 8 guests. Nicely furnished and included some beach gear. The weather was a bit cool, so the large heated pool was awesome. The pool chairs and lounges were great and looked quite new. Very close to the beach with a decent view of the water from the large balcony. Short walk North to the Pier, or a 15 minute walk South to Ron Jon's. One suggested improvement would be to upgrade the community charcoal grill to a gas grill (or two).
We worked with Jaclyn who is very nice and answered all our questions.
We enjoyed the location of the condo. It is right on the ocean with a close walk to the beach. You can easily walk to the pier and to Ron Jon's and proximal shops. The pool area was nice and looked well maintained. We were primarily on the beach so we didn't use the pool. We felt the area was safe and an appropriate environment for all.
We had a few concerning issues with the condo within the first few days. One of which required immediate and prompt attention. I must say that the contact for the unit was super responsive and handled the matters in an urgent manner and exuded professionalism and tact. We believe some of what we had experienced was the fault of previous renters and had been overlooked by housekeeping. Mistakes happen, but the manner in how things are handled matter more and the contact proved to care and be trustworthy. I would consider doing business again with the particular contact so long as it was in a unit that was more updated and maintained.
I realize tastes and expectations differ among people. We had several observations that influence our desire to rent the unit again. I would suggest a deep cleaning schedule for the entire unit. The baseboards, especially upstairs were visibly super dusty. The fan in the kitchen was filthy. I swear it had a quarter inch of dust on it. The blinds in the kitchen we dirty too. The interior of the stove needs a deep cleaning. The dryer took two hours to dry a load of towels. This would have been even more problematic if we had stayed here for more than a week. The patio furniture rocked and we had to put napkins under the table, which is not a big deal, just a bit annoying. We like things to be clean and work properly. We all have nice houses and expect the same when we travel.
I did notice that there were new windows which were nice. It may be that improvements are gradually being made. If this is the case, perhaps the peeling 80’s guest bathroom wallpaper could be replaced. Along with this, an exhaust fan in the bathroom would be great. It gets so hot because there is not a fan to use when taking a shower. This affected our comfort. 4 hooks would also be great in the guest room as two families may be sharing the bathroom and there isn’t a place to hang your towel. Perhaps there is something you could do on the steps to prevent falls on the slippery wooden stairs.
Overall, I would be hesitant to recommend this unit. If the issues were addressed then I would reevaluate my position.
We could not ask for more. Everything we needed was available in this condo . Everything was perfect and very clean. Jaclyn was very nice to deal with and I would recommend her condos to anyone. But keep some time open for our next stay!!
