There are no hotels or condo building overlooking this beach.  It's usually not busy at all.  Almost like having a private beach!Looking north towards Port Canaveral where Disney, Royal Caribbean, Carnival and other cruise ships set sail.

The space

Ocean Woods is a beautiful, fully landscaped, gated and guarded community on the beach. The community has many live oak trees with other tropical vegetation providing shade for the homes and streets. Enjoy watching and photographing the many peacocks and squirrels that live in this community. The beach is a short walk through a tropical wonderland. The adult and heated family pools are across the driveway. Tennis, shuffleboard, basketball, racquetball are all on site.

Five minute walk to beach from my home through our tree canopied community!! Modern and spacious, single story ground floor unit - no steps. Very lively, bright and artfully decorated. Stained concrete floors, comfortable leather furniture - no carpet - allergy free. Ample towels, sheets, dishes, etc. It's a complete household! You just need your clothes. My weekend hide-away from Orlando stress. This is a great place for two couples to share or a couple with visitors.

Large master bedroom with king bed has connecting bath. Guest room has king bed. Both have TVs as does the living room (DVD/VHS/Stereo). Free phone for all of US, Canada and Puerto Rico and high speed wireless Internet. There is a twin mattress that can be used in either bedroom or in the living room.

A private tropical patio perfect for entertaining is just outside the door with hot and cold shower and gas grill. Garage has bikes, beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and a beach wagon all ready for a great day at the beach. More information/pictures can be provided on request.

Parking is right outside the door - no long walking or steps/elevators to bring in groceries. No smoking inside please. Small pets are welcome (please provide weight and breed for approval) and there's lots of areas to walk within the community.

Close to Port Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center. Boat, jet-ski rentals and parasailing nearby. Plenty of live entertainment just minutes away at Port Canaveral and fresh seafood!!

This condo was a great vacation spot! It was clean and had everything we needed, even beach chairs for the short walk to the beach. Very nice neighborhood and we warmly were greeted by peacocks and cats that roam around. Jon was a great host, very responsive to questions!

My family of 5 (kids ages - 8, 10, 14) stayed here over Spring Break. It was our favorite vacation! The location of the property was ideal for tranquil relaxation but still close enough to all the restaurants and vacation activities. The owner, Jon, was very accommodating and attentive. The place was clean, well stocked, and uniquely decorated. We especially loved the use of the beach chairs, sand toys, wagon, body boards, and bikes the property provides. We used these items when we explored the uncrowned beach. The beach was a short walk away through the lush vegetation of the gated community that the property is part of. The kids loved the property's free roaming peacocks! The residents were very friendly and we felt safe. My family enjoyed the pool, basketball and tennis courts, and shuffle board. All equipment is available for use without charge. We plan on staying here again.

I thought the accomodations were top notch. Jon was a great host and kept in contact, always asking if everything was okay for my stay. I would definitely stay there again. For a two-bed, two bath and one car garage in close proximity to the beach, the price was right!

My wife and I spent the summer in Cape Canaveral and stayed at this place. We had a wonderful time. The house is in a nice established gated development landscaped with tropical vegetation and direct access to the beautiful beach which is never crowded. Many peacocks roaming around freely. The complex is ideally located near everything. Short walk to the beach, short drive to restaurants, groceries, churches, mall, Walmart, etc... 5 min to the Cruise Port, 10 min to Cocoa Beach. A little longer drive and you can be in 35 min to NASA, +/- 1 hr to Orlando (Seaworld, Disneyworld, Universal, airport, etc.), about 2 hrs to Legoland and so on. The house itself in nicely furnished and decorated in a unique style that reminded us every day that we were on vacation. The air conditioning is fabulous and everything else works as supposed. The house can accommodate several people, and it was nice having two bedrooms (with flat screen TV in each) and two bathrooms when we had guests during our stay. Nice leather furniture in the living room, also with a good size flat screen TV. Completely outfitted kitchen with everything you need to cook and serve for several people. Lots of towels of all sizes and colors. Nice washer and dryer, dishwasher and full size refrigerator made the mundane chores a snap. We could keep one of our cars in the attached garage which is nice in the hot weather. Nice little backyard terrace with BBQ and nice table and chairs. Lots of beach stuff in the garage including a cart to load it all that you can pull all the way to the beach. Our grand kids had a blast at the family pool, and we had a blast at the adults pool. Most people in the complex are long time residents and we made good friends. Jon is a great host. He greeted us on the first day and showed us everything we needed to know to start living in the house, as well a gave us all kind of good information and tips about the area. Through our stay he kept in touch and made sure everything was going well and made us feel welcome and at home. Thank you Jon. We will cherish the memories of our stay for a long time, especially the walks on the beach, the friends we made and watching several rocket launches at NASA right from the beach. I would recommend this house for a short or long term stay for retired people like us, or younger families with kids. No need to bring anything other than your suite case with your beach clothes...

This home was a wonderful launching pad for our Cape Canaveral adventures. The community was quiet and our son loved looking for peacocks (and finding lots!) The home was a perfect size for two couples and a toddler -- very comfortable and convenient. The nearby car wash has *amazing* homemade ice cream -- I think some in our group ended up going there every day!
