We own Calema Windsurfing & Watersports - located inside Kelly Park - in Merritt Island and offer Instruction, Rentals and a Pro-shop for Windsurfing, Sailing, Kayaking and Stand-up Paddling.
Come and enjoy the beauty of our area from the water!
Why this property? We purchased this condo in 2002 and fell in love with many of its features. The pool area is nice and private, surrounded by a privacy wall.
The 2nd story corner location gives more privacy as the windows are on the outside wall, so you can enjoy lots of light without anyone seeing in or walking by. Being located in a residential area, there are more houses, which adds to its charm.
20 years later and we still love our 'Cozy Condo in Cape Canaveral'.

We are just a short 4 blocks to the beach - takes less than 10 minutes to walk and it is a direct access (no big condos blocking the way).

Yes. There is a washer/dryer room - coin operated for all the apartment residents - downstairs by the pool area.
Can I park a boat or motorcycle on the property?
Only one vehicle is allowed per apartment. There is plenty of room for guests at the park across the street.
Can I bring my dog or cat or porcupine?
No, due to the potential allergies of future customers, and HOA rules, we do not allow any animals.

There is a strict "No Smoking" policy for the entire complex - even outside by the pool area. Any smoking inside the unit will be cause for forfeiture of deposit.
Perfect studio apartment, minutes away from the beach, pickleball courts and cyling
We found this studio apartment met all our needs and was very affordable. The beach is down the street as are the pickleball courts. Bring your bikes and cycle every day or enjoy great daily walks. Susie and her husband are friendly and available if you have any needs. We highly recommend this rental!

Thank you for the review, Brenda. I really enjoyed getting to know you and your sister during your stay. Would love to have you come back and have 'Cozy Casa' as your winter retreat anytime. Wishing you the best, Susie
If your looking for a quiet retreat away from the crowds and traffic of Cocoa Beach yet still being within easy driving distance this is your place. The apartment is large, comfortable and quiet. The screened in porch catches the afternoon sun and is a great place to read and have an afternoon cocktail. The apartment was well appointed with enough of everything to be comfortable. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and my wife loved the bathtub. It's about a 15 minute drive to the beaches and a 10 minute drive to the nearest Publix. The drive to and from the apartment was always entertaining because of the variety of birds and animals we saw (otters, alligators and wild pigs). Susie and her husband are great. They were helpful and informative as well as being delightful to talk with. For example, our TV stopped working shortly after we got there and Susie had a new one for us the next day. We enjoyed our 3 months and we would return.
