Gulf Gardens condo description
ESCAPE TO THE WHITE POWDERED SANDS OF THE GULF!
Come discover the charming, quiet, and tropical atmosphere, reminiscent of the real, unspoiled Florida, at Gulf Gardens. Located directly across the boulevard, just 75 steps from the pure, white, Gulf sand, our classic beach villa provides everything for a romantic, relaxing escape. After a day at the beach, come lounge by one of Madeira Beach's largest pools surrounded by exotic plants and Florida palms.
Our cozy beach cottage contains all the personal comforts to make your stay memorable. Besides the spotless, fully-equipped kitchen and bath, this up-to-date unit includes cable TV with DVD/VCR, designer bedding and draperies, and drawer sachets as an added touch.
One of the nicest features of this unit is the unmistakable attention to cleanliness and details that only a discriminating owner can provide. One stay and you will agree!
Located in the heart of the Clearwater/Saint Pete beaches, our condominium offers easy access to great restaurants, supermarkets, shopping, golf courses, and nightlife. Historic John's Pass Village is a mere one-mile stroll down Gulf Boulevard. Tampa International Airport, Busch Gardens, and Ybor City are only 30 minutes away, and of course, all Orlando area attractions - Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios - are only 90 minutes away!

We were very pleased with our vacation. The beach was nice. The property was very clean and well managed. Imre is so very nice and helpful. The owners were very kind as well. I would recommend this property and I plan to visit again myself.

Madeira Beach Dream Cottage
Madeira Beach Dream Cottage
This beautifully decorated and very clean condo is a great place to relax or to be as active as you wish. It features everything one needs including all cooking necessities and a comfy queen bed. We walked the beach, watched the sunsets, and enjoyed the on-site pool. Many visitors were from Canada (as were we) so had lots to talk about. A walk to John's Pass was a fun experience with many places to shop and eat. There are numerous shops and restaurants within a short driving distances or one can hop on the trolley. We especially enjoyed the Gulf Bistro, Lisas Cafe and Carabas. I found some great bargains at the Bealls store and Stein Mart and Bill enjoyed the Blue Jay game in Dunedin which is only a half hour drive. We enjoyed our stay and thank Jane and Mark for the opportunity to visit the lovely Gulf Gardens Resort again next year!

This is a great little retreat - very clean and well cared for. It is right across from the beach access and is easy to get to John's Pass, restaurants, and shopping.

Perfect relaxation getaway
Perfect relaxation getaway
My boyfriend and I rented this unit last month. We had a fabulous week and are already trying to figure out when we can make it back. The resort is very modest, but extremely quaint, and CLEAN. Excellent value!! You will be very pleased with your choice if you book this unit. We were looking for a cottage-type getaway where we could relax and unwind, but still cook our own meals and we got exactly that. I felt I relaxed more on this trip than any of our all-inclusive trips. Our unit's kitchen was stocked with every supply you will need for your stay. The complex has a shared BBQ that you can use as well as a shared outside eating area. We didn't use these amenities but will try to take advantage next time. The pool is extremely clean and quiet. The beach is right across the street, so we spent most of our time there. Madeira Beach is one of the cleanest beaches I have been to. We walked a couple miles north, and as soon as you crossed into Redington, the sand was much less groomed than what it is in Madeira. We liked the fact that this was not a high-rise building. Our car was right at our door and we didn't have to deal with elevators and noise from units above or next door. Let me also mention that the property managers Imre & Maria are extremely warm and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure you were comfortable and happy with your stay...I even got a hug when we left! Location: Within walking distance is a great little ice cream & candy shop, a few convenience stores, and a little further up (walkable if you like long walks) is John's Pass to the south, and to the north the CVS & Wynn Dixie are not far either. Everything is right there. Madeira Beach being between Clearwater and St. Petersburg makes it a great home base for your stay, and Gulf Gardens is a fantastic complex. We can't wait to go back!

This place was delightful! We loved the sparkling pool with the beautiful flowers and the closeness of the beach and shopping centers. It was private and peaceful. Imre and Maria and all the other guests were very kind and helpful. We would highly recommend it.

We recently stayed at Gulf Gardens Unit 2 & really liked it! Very friendly people who were willing to help with anything you needed. Very clean and well kept facility. Nice pool & just a short walk to the beach. Highly recommended..will stay again.

Well we did it again! The second time was just as nice as the first. Spent the second week of June at the cottage. Mr. and Mrs. Bokhart were more than accomodating. Imre was a welcome sight, we always feel safe just knowing he is there. My nephew is 7 yrs. old and autistic, this trip was a dream for him. Beautiful weather and top notch accomodations made this another great trip. I've never gone to the same place two years in a row, but Madeira Beach and Gulf Gardens have permanently carved a place in our hearts. This won't be our last trip back. God Bless to the Gulf Gardens owner/manager crew! Teresa & Ree + Jay :o)

This was one of the best vacations my daughter and I have had. The owners were so nice. Imre was priceless. He is laid back, yet makes sure everything is just as you want it. He made us feel very welcome and safe. The cottage is lovely! Quaint, clean as a whistle, I've seen apartments not as nice. It truly was like being at home. The pictures are exactly like it is. You are right across the street from the beach, a lovely powdered sugar sand beach with crystal clear water. Most activities are within 30 min. of this cottage. I have already told Imre, we'll be back next year God willing! Thanks for everything to you all :o) Teresa & Ree

Derrick and I just wanted to let everyone know that this truly is a marvelous place to stay. We had one of our most enjoyable vacations here and have already booked for next year. You can't go wrong as everything is exactly the way it is described. One thing you have to know is that the people at Gulf Gardens are wonderful and very friendly. Imre and Maria make sure that everything is perfect and the pool and grounds are immaculate. Spend some time there you won't regret it. Derrick and Mary
