“Unit 808 Could use some updates.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Hello

First time review so will keep it to the point. My family rented from the Geoff family this summer. They owns have many units in building so we found one we thought we liked and was available.

We found the unit online via their web site. Booking was easy after a few E mails to solidify a date and negotiated a fair price, which was lower then advertised. :)

just to note, this is about our 8th time staying in the building over the years.

Arrived at the the cape and picked up the keys at a prearranged location offsite. Was easy enough, just followed their instructions.

Upon entering the unit we did notice a few things. First, it kind of smelled moldy, not to much of an issue. I mean this is Fl and if the unit was closed up for a bit, this happens.

We did have a few issues, so here they are.

-Unit did smell a bit musky.
-Unit had a Capet which was badly stained and looked dirty.
-Unit was showing its rental use age and needed some TLC
-There was NO phone service in the unit at all.
-Overall cleanness was about 7/10 we thought.
-Washer dryer supplied, but again showing age.

We contacted the owners about our concerns and they did get back to us in a days time, not to bad.

We asked about the lack of phone in the unit and was told that non of their units have phone service. For us with kids, what if you had to call 911 or something like that? Not all cell phones work in condo's with all the steal etc.

WiFi was about 5/10 as it is a shared network for the building.

Now, with all that said, yes the unit was updated, which was great. It just needed some maintenance from all the renters. As we said we have stayed in this building many times, some units have not been updated in over 10 plus years.

In the end we had a nice stay. If we had paid the listed rates, we would of wanted more of the unit.

Room Tip: Higher Floors better view. Building shaped kind of like and "L" corner units are close to...

We stayed in unit #106. We brought a dog and the first floor was real handy. Our unit was great. The living areas were all updated. The bathrooms were a little dated, but otherwise were fine. The grounds, pool area, and beach were great. Lots of good places to eat. Would recommend Grills up in The Cove. Would come and stay in the same unit again.

We stayed in unit 106. Getting the key was easy and glad we didn't have to go through an office. However, my 1 year old daughter helped us see how clean the floors were from the bottom of her socks being black! No mop was available, no kitchen drying towels, half a paper towel roll, rusted can opener. We ended up buying a broom, toilet tissue, can opener, paper towels, dish towels, washing powder....... Dean offered to reimburse but I just told him he needed to come from Canada and monitor his cleaning crew. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit. We arrived and there were wet towels in dryer upon arrival, the white towels were very stained with black spots... One of the showers was dark in the bottom, clearly hadn't been cleaned..... we had to scrub it.... The pics were true to how the unit looked but cleanliness wasn't it... Another coincidence was after sending credit card info, there was an unauthorized purchase made at a bed, bath, and beyond in New Jersey. We live in Atlanta.... never before but a coincidence nonetheless.....

We really enjoyed our stay! Very clean but needs updating! So close to the beach! The pool was clean and the people very friendly! Great price, we had plenty of room for our family of 4! Close to restaurants and the supermarket. Plenty of dishes and pans to cook ans eat in the condo!

We recently rented this unit - it was recently remodeled and was fabulous - great views of the pool and ocean - the room was very clean - parking was good - safe access to the building. highly recommend this property. It is not a hotel - it is a private condo unit

In May 2013, I stayed at Canaveral Towers Condo, which is a privately owned condo, meaning we rented from the condo unit owner themselves. The room was clean and tidy and the pool area was great to relax around. Parking was plentiful and safe and the condo is in great condition. The Beach is right there, so we were literally "on the water." There wasn't much for recreation ammenities, but we learned about a rental company in the area that delivered surfboards, bikes, chairs and umbrellas. They are what made our trip memorable. If you're staying in Cape Canaveral and need beach gear, we highly recommend www.a1afunrentals.com for your beach gear. This is an affordable stay that is quiet and away from the crowds.

Room Tip: Every room has a view. The balcony either faces east towards the beach, or south down the beach. B...
