Gulf Gardens condo description

*We now have WIFI!*
Enjoy a Gulf vacation in a private beach cottage. Gulf Gardens is located directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. In less than a one minute walk from your doorstep you will be enjoying the sun on the white powdery sands of quaint Madeira Beach. Back at the cottage, you can swim in one of the area’s largest and cleanest pools surrounded by lush tropical gardens, enjoy an open-air meal on the poolside patio, or watch the sunset from your private front lawn.

Our spotless cottage comes equipped with a fully-stocked kitchen - everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal. Clean linens will be provided and there is a shared grill on the complex where you can grill your catch of the day! There is a cable TV, VCR, & DVD player in the unit for your entertainment. The onsite property managers will ensure you feel like family during your stay and will answer any questions you may have during your vacation.

One of the nicest features of this unit is the unmistakable attention to cleanliness and details that only a discriminating owner can provide. And you don’t have to worry about long elevator waits…your car is right at your doorstep for your convenience! One stay and you will already be looking forward to your next vacation here! We should know…we rented here before and enjoyed our time at Gulf Gardens so much that we bought our own unit to escape to!

Located in the heart of the Clearwater/Saint Pete beaches, our cottage offers a convenient home base for touring Central Florida. You’ll be 30 minutes away from Tampa International Airport, Busch Gardens, Ybor City, and only 90 minutes away from Orlando’s family attractions. More local to your rental, historic John’s Pass is only 1 mile away. Stroll down to John’s Pass for many dining and shopping options, and grab a homemade ice cream on your way back at the famous Candy Kitchen!

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: Thanks for checking out our vacation property! We are a young family from Toronto, Ontario. We live a very active lifestyle and love to vacation in tropical climates. We love to cook, and friends and family are a big part of our life...and the three always seem to go together!

              Why Gulf Gardens:
              We vacationed in Madeira Beach and fell in love with the area. We have gone to all-inclusive resorts and have done adventure vacations as well...nothing felt quite as relaxing as our vacation in Madeira Beach. Living in Toronto, our winters are cold and long...we both knew that someday we would own a property to escape to in Florida. As soon as we spent time in the area, we knew Madeira Beach was where we wanted to be. It's so peaceful, quaint, friendly, and close to so much in the area. Being so close to the beach, we are able to bring our morning coffee along for our beach walks. You can also walk to John's Pass and our favourite spot...Candy Kitchen!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              What we liked about our property when we saw it is that it is one of the only units to have its own front yard. If you have kids, they will be able to play safely on the lawn, which is also set away from the road. Beyond the lawn is your parking spot, and beyond that is the road. If you don't have kids, you can just enjoy the privacy that the front lawn provides away from the rest of the complex. We look forward to creating many beach memories there with our daughter...and hope that other renters are able to create wonderful memories there too.
