About Julian, Judith and Yves

Julian, his sister Judith and her husband Yves own the 2nd floor of this property while the groundfloor is owned by Yves' parents. We all live in Germany but parts of the family come from Switzerland.

Julian, Judith and Yves purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Julian, Judith and Yves chose Crescent Beach

Dolphin Bay is perfectly located between the Banana River and the Atlantic Ocean.

We fell in love with this place, the location and the relaxed atmosphere of Cocoa Beach.

What makes this apartment unique

The backyard is next to the banana river. Dolphins often swim buy. You just have to walk across the street to the beach, which is never crowded.

Great location, lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this apartment. The view of the Banana River was great to enjoy, especially in the evening, and the walk to the ocean just across the (busy) road was quick and easy. It was easy to find, the off-street parking was a plus, and the apartment was well-appointed. We had a short stay, but enjoyed every minute.

Great Property and Location

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and the location was great. I liked that we had a parking space and pool. My wife and I took two kayaks out for a little row which we enjoyed. There was only one adult life jacket though. The owner was very nice but they are a little slow to respond, I'm assuming because there contact phone number was in Germany. The wall to the neighboring apartment was a bit thin but we had courteous neighbors who keep the noise down. We tried to be courteous in return. It was actually pretty cold the weekend we were there and I had to contact the owners to get the heater turned on. They accommodated but it wasn't until the next day because we arrived late, so the first night was pretty chilly. Once we had heat it was good. Probably not a normal problem when vacationing in Florida.

Great condo in a great location but be aware ...

  • 4 of 5

Let's start with the positive aspects of this super cute, fantastically located condo. We rented unit 201 with the deck that overlooks the Banana River. It is in a great location at the "quieter" end of the main road/highway. If you cross the BUSY street you are instantly at the ocean. Be aware though that people do not drive 35 mph on this road, they drive more like 50, so be careful crossing the road, especially at dusk.

The condo unit has everything you need for a night's stay or a week's stay. Fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, stove, oven, full size refrigerator, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, blender, dishes, silverware, etc. I was impressed at how stocked the kitchen was.

The separate living room has a couch that also turns into a bed that can technically sleep two (maybe small children) comfortably or one adult. There is a TV with plenty of channels to choose from including some movie channels.

The bathroom was stocked with plenty of towels and beach/pool towels as well. I would advise bringing your own bar soap & maybe extra toilet paper depending on the length of your stay.

The bedroom had a large king bed, although not the most comfortable mattress. There was plenty of extra blankets and sheets stored underneath the bed in the drawers.

My favorite part was the view of the river from the deck. My daughter and husband really enjoyed the kayaks and took them out EVERY day, the kayaks are definitely the stars of this show.

The pool appeared clean. My daughter went in it once and I didn't get in it. She said it was warm.

So, now for the negative. The walls here are PAPER THIN. You can hear every noise in the unit right next to you! Our stay, while not ruined, was not very peaceful due to the fact that the unit next to us was rented to a family of 5 plus their two large dogs. They had small kids who were constantly whining, crying, fighting, being obnoxiously noisy as most kids are. They left their dogs in the condo alone to bark and whine for hours on end. Like I said, no peace. I did inform the owners and they said they would take care of it. Honestly, while I love dogs and have two of my own, these units are too small for large dogs. So, that's my main gripe, I could never sit on my deck in peace, they were always on their deck, kid crying, or yelling at each other, staring around 6:30 AM!

I just want other renters to be aware of the very thin walls and the fact that neighbors are right on top of each other.

Beautiful and restful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this beautiful home, and we loved it all over again! The home has everything you'll need, including the beautiful views of the river and sunset. There's lot of life in the water to watch, including crabs, fish, dolphins, and pelicans. I had the pleasure of going out on the paddle board during a particularly bright night for the bioluminescence. Let me tell you, that is a mind blowing experience. I was in the middle of a school of fish and they lit up the water all around me. When they stopped, the water sparkled like glitter all around, and the front of the paddle board glowed as it went through the water like it had lights underneath. Breathtaking! You can rest on the tiki deck and watch the dolphins play, or jump in the pool to cool off. Definitely will return to this spot! Thanks Julian for checking in to make sure we had all we needed, it was another wonderful stay at Dolphin Bay!

Absolutely loved our stay at Dolphin Bay!

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal, away from the busy touristy area and a short walk to the ocean, with the river in the backyard..take your pic! Julian was fantastic to work with and responds right away. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when we return. The apartments are bright, fresh, and clean and the pool and tiki hut was wonderful. We stayed in November 2015.
