Florida Timeshare News: January 13, 2018


Timeshare news 24/7
COCOA BEACH: The “Space Coast” along Florida’s central Atlantic coastline is a pretty neat area. Centered around the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station about an hour east of Orlando, its 72 miles of coastline are chock full of things to do and see. In total, there are 24 towns, cities and areas on the Space Coast, each one delightfully unique and all of them laid back and come-as-you-are. Among them are Cocoa, Cocoa West and Cocoa Beach.

Cocoa Beach, a classic beach town on a barrier island, is so close to Cape Canaveral that residents I’ve known swear that during Shuttle launches you could see the numbers on the shuttles as they roared past. “No brag,” said one, noting the skepticism on my face. “Just fact.”

Well, among its many other attractions Cocoa Beach has some pretty nice timeshare resorts, too, including a Westgate property currently undergoing a $14 million renovation that is already about half done.

The new property, formerly the Wakulla Suites, was purchased by Westgate Resorts in 2016. It is being completely transformed into Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort with the extensive renovation covering every aspect of the property, including all new exteriors, interiors, lobby and amenities.

Westgate Cocoa Beach

This is the new 75,375-gallon Lazy River at the Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort.

When completed, the resort will boast 120 two-bedroom, two-bathroom and fully equipped high-end condominiums; a tropical-themed water park with a lazy river, splash pad and water play area and a variety of exclusive concierge level services unique to the Space Coast. You will have easy access to the recently updated Cocoa Beach Pier from the resort, too, which is also owned by Westgate.

The resort has remained open during the renovation so things might be loud and/or inconvenient but if you want to you can reserve a stay now at www.experiencecocoabeach.com Personally I’d give it a few weeks before I pack my bags; the work won’t be fully completed until sometime this summer.

Westgate Resorts: getting BIGGER!
