BEACHFRONT CONDO

 

Great experience. The entire rental process was handled very professionally and timely. The condo itself was
beautiful. Very roomy and comfortable. Everything needed for your visit was provided- linens, glassware,
pans, beach chairs, umbrellas, even coolers. Just please remember to leave them for others to enjoy. I would
highly recommend renting this huge unit.

CLEAN & ELEGANT

 

Upon arrival we were happy to see that there was ample parking. Unit 611 was gorgeous, clean and very elegant. The views from the balcony were immaculate. Between beach, cruise ships and rocket launches there was plenty to see right in your back yard. The complex was quiet and family oriented. With Orlando just an hour away there was plenty of activities available as well. This is a great location and beautiful condo. We are looking forward to staying again.

WEEK IN PARADISE

 

What a wonderful week in such a beautiful condo. This unit is far above other beach rentals. It has a fully stocked kitchen with above average appliances, cookware, and dishes. The beds were so comfortable and linens were of higher quality. Beautifully decorated! The condo complex was quiet and well lit at night. Parking is excellent and the security measures that are in place made us feel secure. Miss Jill is easy to work with and responds quickly to questions that you may have. We highly recommend this unit.

Perfect Ocean Front Condo

 

Condo just as described. Awesome view of ocean, beach was right there. Unit was clean and had everything we needed including beach accessories. Loved sitting on balcony and watching people on beach, beach was awesome for long walks. Jill was wonderful to work with and very quick to respond to a minor issue that came up. We even got to see a rocket launch from cape canaveral right from our balcony. Was perfect for two couples, plenty of room. Would love to come back again.

Our family of 5 stayed very comfortably at the rental. It is in a great location with wonderful views and we had a great time. Right by the beach, it was also close enough to downtown to walk. I would definitely stay there again.

SANDCASTLES COCOA BEACH  
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
 

We rented this condo (2 couples in their late 40's early 50's) and we had a blast. The condo is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. Easy access to pool and beach!! both right when you get off the elevator!! The beach is beautiful and not crowded!! plenty of room to hang out and the unit has chairs, towels, games so you do not have to pack any of that stuff. We are from Rhode Island so we flew in and were glad we didn't have to worry about lugging that stuff along or even having to spend money to purchase when we were there. The kitchen is awesome!! We stayed a week and only went out to eat 2x. There are many restaurants and markets near by so you can do either!! The Husbands love to golf and golfed 3 days out of the 7 days we were there. We actually left a day early to stay one night at Universal Orlando which was great!! THE VIEW is SPECTACULAR!! the Porch is great!! nice furniture and beautiful breeze and view!! Would definitely rent again!!

My family and I stayed at Jill's 3 bedroom condo for two weeks and it was by far the best family vacation we have ever taken! Jill is a peach and was very helpful throughout the rental process and if any questions arose during our stay, she was just a phone call away. The condo was clean, comfortable and the view up and down the beach was breathtaking! We miss sitting out on the wrap around balcony for our morning coffee. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a gourmet dinner. We used it almost every night. The master bedroom suite was beautiful with its own door out to the balcony. The beds in all three bedrooms were very comfortable. The beach was beautiful and Jill has a closet stocked with everything you need for beach activities. From umbrellas and chairs to boogie boards and sand pails with shovels. My two young daughters especially had fun surfing the waves on the boogie boards. At night, you can walk the beach searching for crabs and Jill even provides the flashlights. One evening, while taking a stroll, we were lucky enough to see not one, but two loggerhead sea turtles. One was coming out of the ocean to nest and the other was returning after laying her eggs. It was a surreal experience, one that I will not soon forget. We will definitely be making a return visit! Thank you Jill for letting us enjoy your amazing condominium!

Our family of 5 adults stayed in Jill's 3 bedroom condo for a week. We were relieved and pleasantly surprised that the condo and the view were just as lovely as the pictures on the website. Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed to ensure that we did not have to eat out every meal! We loved the easy access to the beach and the condo had a great supply of beach toys and chairs. It was wonderful having the space to get everyone together and that the space was perfect! Jill has thought of everything needed for a wonderful trip.

The unit and facility is extremely clean. It has a great view from the wrap around deck. I plan on going back this year.

This condo was rented for "Girls Week." The views of the ocean and beach were just amazing with the wrap around porch and comfy furniture to sit on while we had our morning coffee or wine before dinner. We were even lucky enough to see a rocket launch during our week. We found the condo to be clean and with all the amenities you would expect in a luxury condo. We have already booked for next year!! Jill was amazing to work with. Very responsive and pleasant. A Great Experience!!

This is our second visit to this condo for our family. Again, the condo was just perfect for our family vacation! It is very clean and offers all the amenities of home and more. All you need to pack is your clothes - Jill provides the rest! Beautiful condo, ocean view deck, beach, pool, and jacuzzi, what more can you ask for. Very conveniently located 50 minutes to Universal Studies. We got the opportunity to see 2 blastoffs at the Kennedy Space Center from the deck. Jill is wonderful to deal with. Very accommodating. One week was too short, next year we will go for 2 weeks! Thanks Jill for another wonderful family vacation.

We spent our spring break vacation at the Sandcastles condo with our 2 college age daughters. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cocoa Beach. The condo had everthing that we needed. It is decorated nicely and was very clean. The mattresses in both bedrooms were extremely comfortable. We enjoyed spending time going back and forth between the pool and the beach. We also enjoyed many of the restaurants in the area as well. Looking forward to coming back next year!

4/1/15

This condo was rented for spring break (March 2015) and it was absolutely incredible! The view was the best we have had yet in Florida. The balcony size and location is outstanding. You can see for miles up and down the beach. The condo is very well kept and has all the amenities of home and then some. It is a nice quiet location with an outstanding pool and the community is extremely friendly. We did take a day and enjoyed Universal Studios which is only a 50 minute drive. Jill was incredibly easy to deal with and we will not hesitate to deal with her again.

"TERRIFIC VIEW”

I rented the condo for a weeks vacation with my two nieces, nephew and their families. There was 7 of us, it's a large condo so we had plenty of room. The house is well kept and she had just put a new stove in it. Jill was so easy to work with and always returned my calls. I had had a bad experience before with the deposit when I rented a house at Vero Beach, but not with Jill; my deposit was returned within 3 days of us leaving. We went to Disney one day about an hour. Anyone wouldn't go wrong rent this one; I am thinking about giving my family another trip to Florida for Christmas, if I do I will be renting this condo; if not this year the next.

Thanks Jill , we enjoyed your Condo very much , it was a gathering for our family as our two daughters live in different parts of the country and it was a great chance for us all to get together and spend some Comfy time with each other while enjoying the great surroundings at Cocoa Beach. The girls are big Harry Potter fans and we all spent a day at Universal which was only an hour away and it made their vacation even more special , all in all we were more than satisfied with the Condo and all our dealing with Jill the owner, We would gladly recommend this spot and hope to return sometime in the near future .

FAMILY VACATION

Love, love love this condo. This is our second time staying in this beautiful condo. Jill has always been a pleasure to work with. There were 5 of us. Our son brought his girlfriend and proposed to her the first nite on the beach. It was very important to him to make Cocoa Beach a special place for her too. Cocoa Beach has been our destination for 18 years. We use to stay at The Resort on Cocoa Beach but Sandcastles is so much better. The furnishings are awesome, beds comfy, lots of beach stuff and the kitchen nicely furnished. The only recommendation I would have is a couple cookie sheets. We usually eat breakfast and lunch in the condo or the beach, but we always go out for dinner. Condo 611 is the perfect location for whatever you want to do. I love sunrises and they don't get any better than this. Love walking on the beach. If you go north you can walk to the pier and enjoy the shops and restaurants.... South you can walk to Coconuts on The Beach which is a really fun bar. This was the first time where we had to deal with the Moon Jelly fish, they were all over the place. We went deep sea fishing which everyone enjoyed. I would highly recommend Obsession Deep Sea Fishing. Over the years we have found some favorite restaurants that we always have to hit. Some are Grilles, jack Bakers Lobster Shantey, Florida Seafood and Slow N Low for BBQ. We ate at Coconuts on the Beach and it was just OK. I highly recommend 611. What a gem!

Thank you for sharing your awesome condo!  Your attention to every detail was noted.  We added a few shovels and a couple of boogie boards to your collection!  We had a blast (minus the shark bite two umbrellas away), and would recommend your condo to others.  We appreciated the coolers, the beach bags, beach toys, towels, etc.  We made the trip from the West Coast much lighter than normal.  All was well.   The location was perfect for Orlando and Kennedy.  We would choose to stay there over the whole Orlando thing any day!

 

Again, thanks so much!

Awesome Beachfront Condo in the Best Town We Have Ever Visited
Awesome condo with killer view of Cocoa Beach. Had everything you need to move in and live: laundry supplies, cooking items, coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, board games. My family absolutely loved it and our three kids (who had just had a great time at Disney for 6 days) all said the same thing: we just want to come back here next year and stay as long as we can :)

This is our family’s second visit to the Beach and the Sandcastles condo. The condo was perfect. Great in every way and has everything we needed to make it feel like our home away from home for the week. The beach accessories Jill provides makes the stay even more relaxing. The ocean view from the patio is spectacular and the patio is so nice. The beds were also very comfortable! The pool there is also very nice and relaxing the kids loved spending time between the beach and pool. Close to very nice restaurants and Port Canaveral. Jill is very sweet and very responsive to all our emails and phone calls. I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a great relaxing time at the beach!

Arriving to Cocoa Beach was wonderful, the drive from the airport to this beautiful condo was so simple and fast. Very clean and Such a comfortable fun atmosphere, only steps from the gorgeous sand. The Condo itself was top level hotel sheets and comfort for sleeping. Everything was very clean! My husband and I LOVED the master bedroom as we could open the doors and hear the ocean waves..I have never slept better:) Also in the morning and evening the patio was used by the entire family reading, munching, having our morning coffee. We had all we needed as the kitchen was stocked and stores etc were close by. Would 100% Recommend this condo for a getaway!

This condo on the beach was the perfect setting for our family getaway - family of four with young adult children. As everyone else has noted, the balcony is ideal, and we spent much of our time out there, starting with the spectacular sunrises. The kitchen is completely equipped, and the rooms were as depicted in the photos. Plenty of towels and other essentials made the visit easy and comfortable. Our only disappointment was the inability to open the bedroom windows in the master, and especially the small third bedroom. With 70 degree breezy weather, it was frustrating not to be able to enjoy it indoors. I cannot imagine a better option in Cocoa Beach. We look forward to going back!

We stayed in Unit 611 December 25 , 2013 - January 2, 2014 as a one family consisting of 7 members.  The location is an ocean front and is breath-taking.  The unit was fully equipped as a 5-star hotel suite.  It has such a large balcony that is had accomodated all of us in having daily breakfast; and more importantly, the Master Bedroom has a direct corridor/access to the ocean view and sound.  My wife and Mom LOVED the unit and wanted to come back every year for Christmas and New Year.

This condo is fabulous!  My family of 4 has vacationed in Florida for the past 5 years.  We have always stayed in a one room hotel.  This was definitely an upgrade (and a savings)!  From the moment that we entered the foyer - and then exploring all other rooms and the attention to detail, we knew we had improved!  The beach view is breathtaking! Clean unit, great decor, well-stocked kitchen, and just plain "homey".  Location was perfect.  We thouroughly enjoyed our stay here and would return anytime - hopefully sooner than later.

Jill, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful Cocoa Beach Condo Unit 611 with us.  We felt like we were in you home rather than an ordinary rental.  The wrap-around balcony provided a view that words cannot do justice.  We enjoyed every sunrise and took pictures to bring home with us.  The photos in the on-line ad did not do justice to the actual beauty of the condo.  Everything and more was provided for us.  If we had known that everything to cook and serve with were at our disposal, we would have planned our Thanksgiving for Cocoa Beach.  I was equally impressed with the well-kept landscaping and outdoor areas.  We also appreciated the quiet and serene atmosphere of Sandcastles.  The Palms, Bougainvilleas and Crotons were everywhere and provided a tropical paradise.  Now, I can't end my note of thanks without saying what a big help Jill was to us.  We are up in age and Jill was very pleasant with us and all the questions that we had. Since my son and family live on Merritt Island, a short distance from the condo, we will return.

This is our second time staying in Unit 611.  The first being years ago.  It is still wonderful!  I'm an early riser, so it was great to sit on the balcony and listen to the ocean each morning.  Not only is the place well-maintained, but it's location is great - on the ocean and close to many of Cocoa Beach's best restaurants!  My son and his wife were able to join us for a few nights and were able to enjoy it with us.  We will be back!!

My family stayed in this condo unit for the week of September 8, 2013.  This is a very spacious condo and with 6 of us, including a crawling grandchild, we had plenty of space.  Absolutely loved the decor and the balcony is amazing.  Short walks to Coconuts during the day for lunch.  Great vacation spot, and Jill has furnished everything you could possibly need to have a very confortable and relaxing vacation.  The views from the balcony are breathtaking.  I will definitely return.

This place was amazing. Jill provides just about everything you could possibly need, all in a pristine, beautifully decorated condo. We rarely ventured far, because we didn't have to. The kitchen is beautiful and well-equipped so meals in were easy. The closet is filled with beach toys, chairs, umbrellas. The beach was never very busy, and had clean sand (no need for water shoes!). The pool was also fantastic. My favorite part is the balcony. Comfy chairs to sit in right in front of the ocean, with cooling breezes and the sound of waves. When we weren't at the beach or pool, we were sitting there. I HIGHLY recommend this rental. We will definitely be coming back next year!

This place is beyond fabulous!  I looked at all the pictures online but until you see this place, you can't imagine how awesome it is!  3br/2ba...huge rooms, comfy beds and the balcony!  If we were not on the beach or at the pool, we were on the balcony! A fully stocked kitchen, tile floors, granite countertops in the kitchen and bath...I could go on and on!  It was not our first stay in Cocoa Beach and I promise it will not be our last stay at this unit in Sandcastles!  Jill, the owner, provided everything we needed to relax, and enjoy our stay...we will be back...and I hope it is SOON!~  Thank you, Jill for your help in a memorable vacation for our family!

This was a dream vacation thanks to Jill and her beautiful condo with all of the amenities. My mother and sister flew down for a week from New Jersey to visit with me.  Instead of staying at my local house we thought it would really be a treat to rent something on the beach for a week.  Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to have a condo like this for a rental.  The unit was spotless from top to bottom and everything you could want was there at our fingertips. The view is gorgeous and my mom spent much time just sitting on the balcony and taking it all in. There was nothing that we wanted or needed that was not in Jill's place. We will definitely come back and do this kind of vacation again.  Thank you Jill for making us feel right at home.

My family of five (3 kids; ages 20, 18 and 14) just returned from a fabulous week and stay in this great condo. We were so impressed with the attention to detail throughout the condo, from the well-stocked kitchen and great shampoos, lotions, and bathrobes supplied in the bathrooms. We especially enjoyed the master bedroom's accommodations-it was hard to return to our bed after sleeping on this one in the condo! The furnishings were terrific and no detail was forgotten-even the balcony furniture far exceeded the cheap plastic furniture we saw on every other deck. We highly recommend Jill's units at Sandcastle and we hope to return again soon.

First class, luxurious condo with beautiful views of Cocoa Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. If you ever get tired of relaxing on the balcony overlooking the ocean, you can enjoy the great pool, relaxing hot tub, beautiful sandy beach and warm ocean water.  We will definitely be back.  Thanks also to Jill for making the reservation, arrival and departure process easy.

Thank you so much, Jill, for your wonderful hospitality during our stay in Unit 611 at Sandcastles this past March.  We've stayed in several units at Sandcastles in the past and most have been lovely, but Unit 611 was amazing!  Inside, the unit was spacious, well-appointed and beautifully decorated.  Outside, the huge balcony was fabulous.  We had spectacular views up and down the beach and were able to take advantage of not ony the sunrises but the afternoon sun as well.  Your use of mirroirs in the living and dining rooms was so creative.  Our ocean view was unobstructed even when we were inside.  Thanks again for a lovely time, and you can be sure that we'll be in touch again when we're next looking for a 3-bedroom unit at Sandcastles.

Condo 611 was very nice.  We have never stayed at such a well-appointed condo--they even supplied coffee!  The closet of beach toys and chairs was a nice bonus, too.  But our favorite part was the balcony, which has the nicest, most comfortable
furniture ever and a fantastic view.  Highly recommend this condo.

Dear Jill,

 

Our family stayed at the condo from March 2-9th, 2013.  Our family consisted of my wife and I and our four children ages 5-20.  We also had a family friend with us which gave us a total of 7 people in the condo.  We were very comfortable.

 

The pictures ofthe condo do not do it justice.  The place is very well decorated and maintained.  The well stocked kitchen was appreciated.

 

The deck was awesome and we enjoyed sitting on it all times of the day enjoying the sound of the ocean.  We really enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the ocean.

 

The building the condo was in was well maintained and we felt very safe at all times.  Actually people were very friendly.

 

We really hope to stay again.

We have stayed in Jill's Unit 611 for a return visit each year.  The Unit is absolutely beautiful.  When we first walked in the Unit 5 years ago, it was a just WOW and it is the same each year when we return.  It has become our home away from home and we feel so welcome.  The comfortable furniture on the wrap around porch is probably our favorite as we want to mostly read, relax, and watch the beautiful ocean.  You really don't need to leave the Unit.  I duplicate what the other visitors say about Unit 611.  It is just the BEST!!  Jill makes your stay beyond beief and YOU'LL BE BACK!

Jill,

 

What a wonderful vacation we had.  Your place was just so beautiful and inviting.  We stayed at a house in the Orlando area before coming to your place and what a difference.  We went from a nice stay that seemed a bit cold, to a very warming and welcoming atmosphere.  Everything we needed was there.  The balcony was my favorite spot.  I read my book and relax in the sun all day.  I followed the sun around the wrap-around balcony, not ever out of sight of the beach.  My tan is probably the best I've ever had.  I'll never have to look for another place to stay in the future.  I know where I want to go.  Thanks so much.

FANTASTIC RENTAL UNIT

 

I rented the unit for a family vacation this past December & couldn't have been happier! Of the three units that we've stayed in within the complex, this was by far our favorite. Jill's prompt responses & detailed rental instructions really simplified the booking process & vacation planning. The unit is very modern with a beautiful kitchen & bathrooms. It was very clean upon arrival & nicely decorated. The furniture was very comfortable & there is a nice sized television making movie viewing a fun family activity at night. The unit is spacious & open but provides plenty of privacy between the two bedrooms. Towels, blankets, pillows, beach toys, books, and more are all provided adding convenience & comfort. The complex is steps away from the ocean and there is a beautiful view from the patio. It is also one of the few condos that we could find in The area with both a heated pool & a hot tub. The other guests & residents at the complex were extremely nice creating a very friendly atmosphere during our week long stay. There are also tons of great restaurants & shops in the area. I highly recommend to anyone looking to have a wonderful vacation!

Hi Jill,

We LOVED Unit 611 when we were there last week (I can't imagine a nicer rental unit - WOW), and are considering next year already. Is it available for the week noted? Is your 715 unit available?    

       Thanks, Elaine

What can I say...This condo is FABULOUS!!!  The views and the continual sound of the waves sets off the scene for a glorious, relaxing holiday.  Spacious and self-sufficient - you could ask for nothing more.  We have travelled all over the world and these accomodations are well above average.  We ate in and ate out...everything is close.  There was nothing we needed in the kitchen that we couldn't find.  Hats off to Jill and her assistants for delivering such a wonderful package...Cheers until next time...we can hardly wait to return.

Jill,
I had the pleasure of staying at 'The Sandcastles' in Cocoa Beach.  I found this condo on the Internet and worked with Jill throughout the rental process.  Jill is wonderful to work with; always available for any questions you may have and always offering any information to assist you.  The process was very simple.  The condo is absolutely beautiful, even more than the pictures on the internet could ever show.  I was amazed at how beautiful it was.  It is immaculate and has the most amazing view of the ocean.  We felt right at home with everything at our hands.  She stocks the condo with everything!!  All you need is food and drinks.  The view from the deck is breathtaking.  Every morning we would watch the sunrise and have our coffee on the deck and in the afternoon, enjoy the beautiful breezes.  The pool, jacuzzi and grounds of this condo unit are spotless; very well taken care of. The location is perfect, a close drive to Orlando and many of Florida's activities.  I plan to visit Cocoa Beach again, and no need to look for a condo.  This is the best, highly recommended??  Thank you again --  our vacation was fabulous!!

We spent the week of August 3 - 11 in unit 611. Wow! It was fantastic! I had never rented with HomeAway before and Jill made it all so easy. Jill we loved your condo. It is beautiful to say the least. We were impressed from the time we walked into the condo until we left on the last day. Everything we could ask for was at our fingertips...except for one thing. It's tradition for me to bake Nestlé's refrigerated cookies on vacation and there wasn't a cookie sheet in the condo so we had to make do with a pizza pan which there were a lot of. But seriously, that is the only thing that was missing.

 

It was my husband, 20 year old daughter and sister & brother-in-law who joined us for 2 days. The location is to perfect and the balcony is to die for. We spent every morning sitting out there watching the sunrise and every night having cocktails out there listening to the waves. We felt like we were in paradise! I have never seen a more luxurious condo. We will be back year after year. Hopefully next year our son and his wife can join us. We have been going to Cocoa Beach for the last 12 years and are so glad that we found your place.

 

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo with us. We have found our new home away from home.

I spent the week in unit 611 with my husband, our three daughters (16, 19, and 27 years old), one son-in-law and a future son-in-law. The condo accommodated our group perfectly. There was plenty of room to spend time together watching movies or playing games together in the evening, as well as having plenty of room to spread out and read or enjoy a cup of coffee on the large balcony.The condo was lovely, clean and safe, since we all have bad allergies we really appreciated the tile floors throughout.It was very well stocked with everything we needed and even more than what we’d expected.The location was absolutely gorgeous!The ocean view was spectacular – I really miss the sound of the waves!I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in Cocoa Beach. I hope to stay in Unit 611 again and highly recommend it for any occasion. Jill was great to work with, easy to communicate with and very responsive throughout the whole process.

Six of us stayed at Sandcastle’s unit 611 for a week in early May, first time there. We including myself, daughter and her finance, son and his wife and their 2 year old girl, had a really good time. The accommodations and amenities were great, clean, neat, and supplied with all you need and all you do is buy some food unless you want to eat out all the time. The location was perfect for us – we wanted the closest place to Disney that was beautiful and with a balcony and right on the beach.

 

Jill was a pleasure to work with, she took care of everything and always responded quickly and made herself available if you needed.  Jill took care of all the paperwork, provided all information about the property and area, answered all questions, had recommendations for whatever we asked or needed, etc. In addition to the beach the pool was also great and so refreshing as was the entire condo complex and ground, well maintained and landscaped. I would come back again and highly recommend this place and particularly recommend doing business with Jill.

We had a great time at Cocoa Beach. It was a nice change from our usual vacation on Clearwater Beach. We loved the waves, the tennis courts, the pool and the hot tub. We even rented a surfboard and a beach bike nearby! Our “crew” consisted of a couple of kids (10 & 13 yrs old), a couple of moms, and even the Grandparents (70+). Everyone found something to do. We especially liked the game table for family game nights.

 

The condo was exactly as advertised. Very clean, great amenities, friendly people, and a GORGEOUS VIEW! The condo is close enough to the pier to be near the action, restaurants, groceries stores, and shops, but not too close to be over-crowded. We also found an awesome little zoo nearby as well as gocarts, mini-golf, etc.

 

Anyone considering this condo can feel confident that it will be a great experience. Jill answered all our questions, was easy to contact, and made the whole process a piece of cake. We would definitely stay here again!

Jill,

Had a great time!

Your place was great and the whole place was immaculate.

Could not get over how well kept the grounds were from the entrance to the ocean!

Can’t wait to come again!!!

I will let people know about your place!

Hello Jill:

 

I wanted to send you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation to Cocoa Beach. This was our first visit to Cocoa Beach. Your condo is so beautiful. You decorated so nicely. Your balcony is breath taking just as you said. The view is much more than I could have ever expected. I loved sitting out in the early morning with my coffee watching the sun rise and in the evening with the cool breezes. The weather was spectacular! After our long winter in New England, this was such a treat to us. We realize now that we are very deprived of beautiful weather in New England. We are lucky to get 3 days of good weather in a row, and at Cocoa Beach, we had 10 days of perfect weather. The Sandcastles facility is spotless. The pool and jacuzzi was so nice and refreshing. The beach is so clean (no jellyfish, thank god) and the ocean water was so warm. We visited the Kennedy Space Center (loved it), Universal Studios, took an airboat ride at Midway in Christmas, FL to gator country, took a ride on the Blue Dolphin boat to view dolphins and manatees (we saw many and got such good pictures), visited the Brevard Zoo (this zoo was fantastic, don't have any in our area like this one). We had great meals at Fishlips, Millikens, Rustys, Grills, Yen Yen, and Coconuts on the Beach. I could go on and on.
Thank you for stocking your condo with all the necessities. We all felt right at home. Cocoa Beach is definitely on our vacation list to visit again. We hope to be back soon.

 

Thank you again!

Jill's Unit 611 at Sandcastles is fab! The pictures you see is what you get. Location is close to everything. We return each year to this little bit of heaven! It is so comfortable and if there is ever anything you need, Jill will see to it! We work all year long to be able to return to relax at this wonderful place, especially to escape the snow up north. We have recommended it to others. The 43' balcony is wonderful.

Thank you Jill.

Loved your home and felt very comfortable. I would definately consider your property in the future if our travel takes us back to the Cocoa Beach area.

I spent the week in unit 611 with my elderly mother (70), elderly aunt(75), 8 year old twins and my sister-in-law. It was absolutely perfect for all of the age ranges in our party. Not only are the accommodations extraordinary, but the location is perfect. There couldn't be a more beautiful, safer, luxurious condo in Cocoa Beach. I hope to stay in Unit 611 next summer and highly recommend this unit for any occasion. Jill was fabulous to work with and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process.

Jill,
Need to say thank you - Condo 611 was great and truly met our needs - we had a wonderful time and it was equipped with all we could need.  When we come back the only extra item we will need are binoculars.  There was so much activity out in the ocean but we could not make it out without binoculars.
Again, we thank you for everything and look forward to coming back soon.

We spent the week of July 4th at the condo and it was everything you said it would be. The view was spectacular and the accomodations were excellent. We normally cruise, but after staying here, we are seriously considering trying a week at the beach again next year. Thanks for a wonderful stay and hospitality.

Hope to see you next year!

We stayed the week of 6/20/2009. The condo was beautiful and comfortable. The view from was as advertised, wonderful. The condo is much bigger than other units at Sandcastle as most are only 2/2, and the other units all have smaller balconies that look only one direction down the beach. We had three children with us 8,10, and 16. We had plenty to do to keep everyone entertained. I would rent this unit again. David

Jill,
Wow what can we say but thank you, thank you, thank you.
You have an awesome property/condo. We stayed in 611 during the week of 6/8/09 and could not be happier with the experience you provided. I would and have recommended your unit to my friends and family. We certainly look forward to future visits to Cocoa Beach and the first class accomodations. All the best to you and your family. Thanks again for hospitality.

My Husband and I, along with our 9 month old daughter, stayed in unit 711 during the week of 04/11/08. The condo was immaculate and had the most amazing view, which was appreciated especially during times when we had to be inside for naps etc. Thanks Jill, for making our first family vacation such a wonderful and relaxing experience. The condo truly feels like a "home away from home." Shawnda Walbridge, Saratoga Springs, NY

Thank you Jill for a wonderful two week vacation in your lovely condo. It was clean and everything you promised was available. I greatly appreciated the free long distance service to Canada that you acquired for me so that I could speak with my mother who is in a nursing home. My family would love to return to your beautiful condo next year. We recommend your "home away from home" to anyone who is planning on visiting Cocoa Beach. Shirley R., Newmarket, Ontario. Canada

Jill's condo is absolutely beautiful. I have stayed in many condominiums but none compare! The color scheme and decorations are awesome! The kitchens would be a cook's dream...eventhough I don't cook....I loved it! Jill will definitely be the first person I contact should I travel to the Cocoa Beach area in the future!!

3/20/09

My husband and I, along with our girls from Pennsylvania (who were on spring break), stayed at Jill's condo the first week of March; we had a wonderful vacation. Our favorite time was eating breakfast every morning on the deck watching the sunrise and listening to the ocean. The girls enjoyed the beach, while we enjoyed relaxing on the deck (plus a little beach time). The condo was clean, bright, and roomy; all we had to do was stock it with food. We were sad to leave, but will definitely return for another vacation. Thank you Jill for a very relaxing vacation. Tom and Jill Proshuto, New Port Richey, FL

Our family of 5 stayed in unit 611 at Sandcastles for 7 days. This was our first time staying in Cocoa Beach. We loved the accomodations. The condo is very spacious and clean. We felt very much at home. Our 3 children even seemed to be right at home. This was the second time our family chose a vacation rental, and we were very pleased with the value. Thank you Jill!! Greg and Tracey, Shelbyville, KY

8/18/08

Our family has vacationed at Cocoa Beach on numerous occasions. This is the first time that we were not disappointed with the accommdations.
We stayed in Jill's unit 611 and really had an enjoyable vacation. We will definitely stay here on our next vacation to Cocoa Beach. There is no need to look for another place.
Thanks Jill. The unit was all that was promised.

I am not easy to please and i do not like wasting money, so when we walked into unit 611 i can safely say that i was very pleased and knew that my money was going to be well spent. The unit was spacious and clean. And we are not talking oceanview here, we are talking oceanfront. The balcony IS PRIVATE what a relief that was for me.
Jill does not stretch the truth. The building is also well maintained by the staff. The pool is clean and attended to daily. It is a quiet place with respectful people also renting.
You get a clean, secure building on a great beach at a fair price. It was an actual vacation for a change. We will be back for sure. Thank you Jill.

My family of 5 had a great time at the condo. It was ideal and convenient for relaxing at the beach. The view was fantastic and the unit was well maintained with all the essentials of home. I would definately use this condo again! Anonymous

Our vacation at Jill's Condo was wonderful! It was beautiful to spend mornings, afternoons & evenings listening to the ocean on the beachfront balcony. The condo is beautifully decorated, the kitchen well stocked (spices, coffee, filters etc) and the available beachgear was not only convenient, but helped make our stay very comfortable and convenient.
Thank you Jill for all of the thoughtful extras...we'd highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Cocoa Beach!

Cocoa Beach and #611 is the spot for the ultimate vacation. The pictures on the web-site do not do the apartment and location justice. The Beach is phenomenal and all the supplies ensure a great day on the beach. All of the other ammenties were also excellent. Our kids did not want to leave. We promised them we would return with Grandma & Granddad as soon as we can.

Thank you for letting us use your beautiful condo. It was so spacious and had everything you could possibly need. All your beach toys were put to great use by our daughter. We had a great time just relaxing on the beach or the wonderful balcony!! Super safe for our toddler...Thanks again!

We can't say enough positive comments about our recent family vacation to Jill's condo unit 611. Words can't describe the beauty of the place. Our family of 4 adult children and grandchildren really made some great memories. We can only hope to return at some point. Thank you Jill!!!!!!!! Carol Heidenga, Comstock Park, Mi

We enjoyed our stay at this well maintained condo (both Jill's unit 611 and the entire Sandcastles property). It was especially nice that this unit has both East and South facing oceanfront balconies so that when the wind came off the ocean, we could take Jan Barnett, Muskegon, MI

1/11/08

Our stay in the condo was a good one. The location was very good, the view was beautiful and the area was well maintained. The sound of the waves put us all at ease and very relaxed. The balcony was used everyday as we sat and drank our coffee or sipped on a coctail. The beach was very clean and was easy to walk on. My sons loved the surround sound in the large living room (which was very spacious). We had a lot of elbow room. We loved the kitchen because it was user friendly and had everything available for our use. It was a plus to have coffee and cream at hand and all the spices we could possibly use. The location was close enough to Disney and the Space Center which we visited on our trip. We definitely enjoyed our time at Jill's condo.

Our family just returned from a wonderful week at your beautiful condo. We have stayed at several diffrent ocean front facilities but have never stayed in one that felt so at home. The view from the balcony was absolutely magnificent. We would love to come back again and will definitely recomment it to friends and family for a vacation spot. Gary & Cindy Cannon, Greenville, SC

We just returned from our 5 night stay at your beautiful condo. WOW! We were so impressed with all the details and ammenities. We especially liked the porch and comfy porch furniture. It was so nice and realxing to sit and enjoy the ocean. We had everything we needed to enjoy our ocean vacation. THANKS so much. We hope to return.

We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to rent your 3 bedroom condo. The condo itself is beautifully decorated, immaculate and has all the comforts of home. The view from the balcony was absolutely breathtaking. We watched the sun rise, dolphins swim and the rocket launch from Cape Kennedy, what a magnificent site. We are so looking forward to our stay in 2008.

In November of 2006, We stayed at Jills Sandcastle Condo on the 6th Floor. What a great place. The decor was beautiful and very clean and spacious. We also had some of my inlaws stay with us from NJ who also thought it was truly gorgeous. Great location, great waves, we spent alot of time out on the balcony enjoying the view and the sound of the waves. Jill was very accomidating in every way, and when we are back in Cocoa we will be sure to book this condo again. Enjoy your stay. We Sure Did !!!! Lynn and Sam Southard & Family, New Port Richey, FL

I saw this condo on the internet and when I kept shopping I kept going back to this one. And I am so glad I did. This condo is ABSOLTELY beautiful in every way. Jill's attention to detail is impeccable and her decorating is very upscale and I feel as if I am in a first class hotel with all the amenities. I cannot say enough about how welcoming Jill was when we arrived. This is a absolute winner and if you are looking to stay somewhere...look no further. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Have a wonderful day!!

Dear Jill,

I'm sorry this is late in coming, butI wanted to thank you once again for all that you did to make our vacation wonderful!! The kids are back in school and I finally caught a break. Your condo is absoultely gorgeous!! It was the perfect size for our family. The boys slept in one room the girls in the other and my husband and I loved the master with the gorgeous view from its door to the balcony. My husband also appreciated the wireless internet. He was able to keep tabs with work and the world.

Its location was perfect to everything. We were able to drive to Disney two different days and not feel exhausted from the drive. We also found in one of your kitchen drawers a brochure for a fishing adventure. Because of the varied ages of our kids the company did eco/fishing trip on the Banana River for us. Our family was able to pet the manatees that came up to the boat, catch and release some cool fish and collect shells.

One of your neighbors on a different floor gave us suggestions for dinner (GRILLS).

I really appreciate your daughter letting us get ready and head out to the beach. She was so sweet. I am sure you are very proud of her.

Having the beach gear in the condo was an added benefit. The kids had everything they could think of to play with!!
I would highly reccomend your condo at Sandcastles to those with families. IT WAS PERFECT!!!

Thanks again,

Our family has spent a week in Cocoa Beach for the last four years. This was by far the most enjoyable of the four years and the incredible accomodations had much to do with adding to our enjoyment. The beach access, great swimming pool and hot tub, incredible wrap-around balcony, awesome kitchen and fantastic living space make this the perfect vacation condo! All the extras that you provide, from towels, beach items and laundry detergent to shampoo, conditioner, cotton balls and Q-tips in the bathrooms, make the stay even more special and complete. I can't imagine a better place to stay when in Cocoa Beach! Thank you on behalf of the Marek family. Bob Marek, Plainfield, IL

My husband and I were suppose to be able to enjoy a week of pure luxury and fellowship with our son who recently moved to the Cocoa Beach area, however, due to sickness in my family our son and daughter in law went in our place. They called daily to tell us what an AWESOME place they were staying. Everything was PERFECT. They found it to be so very clean, spacious and absolutely like home. We are planning to make this our yearly place when visiting our son and daughterin law for future trips. Jill was absolutely wonderful to work with. Even followed up with an email wishing the best for my sick mother. What more could you want from a vacation. I would HIGHLY recommend this condo to ANYONE. We'll be back!

We have stayed in many condos in Florida over the years and this was by far the best. Instead of being greeted by notes from owners regarding what we could NOT use, could NOT touch, or could NOT do, Ms. Bavetta greeted us with a box of chocolates and a welcome note. We felt as if we were "coming home" and that smeone really cared about us. The breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean from the wrap around balcony and master bedroom was awsome. We enjoyed the many amenities including terry robes for all, complimentary shampoos and conditioners, plenty of beach chairs, toys, beach towels, a game table with cards and several fun games, gourmet coffee as well as complimentary detergents for both the dishwasher and chothes washer. The kitchen had every conceivable utinsel we could have asked for. All the appliances worked perfectly so our only job was to relax and enjoy the luxurious vacation home. We are grateful to Jill Bavetta for this beautiful condo and for helping to make our vacation perfect. We will have many beautiful memories of this fabulous place.Mary Lu Anderson, Madison, WI

AMAZING CONDOMINUM

 

My family and I stayed at Jill's 3 bedroom condo for two weeks and it was by far the best family vacation we have ever taken! Jill is a peach and was very helpful throughout the rental process and if any questions arose during our stay, she was just a phone call away.

The condo was clean, comfortable and the view up and down the beach was breathtaking! We miss sitting out on the wrap around balcony for our morning coffee. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a gourmet dinner. We used it almost every night. The master bedroom suite was beautiful with its own door out to the balcony. The beds in all three bedrooms were very comfortable.

The beach was beautiful and Jill has a closet stocked with everything you need for beach activities. From umbrellas and chairs to boogie boards and sand pails with shovels. My two young daughters especially had fun surfing the waves on the boogie boards.

At night, you can walk the beach searching for crabs and Jill even provides the flashlights. One evening, while taking a stroll, we were lucky enough to see not one, but two loggerhead sea turtles. One was coming out of the ocean to nest and the other was returning after laying her eggs. It was a surreal experience, one that I will not soon forget. We will definitely be making a return visit!

Thank you Jill for letting us enjoy your amazing condominium!.
