Recent Madeira Beach reviews

  • Wonderful Condo, Great Location

    "We are first time vacationers of Madeira Beach. We retuned home one week ago and I must admit I miss Arie Dam already. The owner is exceptionally helpful and quickly responded to my questions before I even booked the room. At my request, she gave me suggestions on activities and restaurants in the area. The condo is described accurately and very roomy. I was amazed how exceptionally clean, well stocked and well maintained the unit is. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean and enjoying the first minutes of the day on the screened in balcony are priceless memories. We enjoyed watching the dolphins play in the Gulf from the balcony and beach. The sunsets here are gorgeous. The beach is beautiful and just steps away. We took advantage of the beach chairs and umbrella from the entry way closet. Sand toys and volleyball were also available. We did not use the pool or hot tub but that area is very nice as well. Although we ate most of our meals out, the kitchen is well laid out and fully stocked. The owner has unit beautifully decorated in a beach theme yet after I was there a day, it just felt cozy and like home. The king bed in the master has a mattress topper which was very comfortable. The master has a large bathroom with spacious shower and walk in closet that makes “moving in” a snap. As it was just the two of us, we did not use the beds in the second bedroom but that room and bathroom were equally nice. The laundry room was perfect and for the first time, I came home with a suitcase of clean clothes!! Johns Pass (a must do) is very close by with shopping, restaurants, activities and dolphin watching. There are many restaurants close by. Dockside Dave’s restaurant (very casual) is just across the street from Arie Dam and has excellent food at very reasonable prices. Checking in and out of the condo with Sunhost was very easy. The Sunhost staff was friendly and answered any questions while we were at the beach. We asked for a restaurant recommendation for stone crabs and they suggested Billy’s Stone Crab, which was delicious. Our vacation at Arie Dam was one of the most relaxing, comfortable, clean vacations that we have had. You won't be disappointed with this condo, I can’t wait to return."

  • Wonderful stay in Madeira Beach!

    "My family and I had such a wonderful vacation! The condo is a corner unit overlooking the pool area and has amazing views of the beach. It is updated with all amenities and very clean. The balcony runs the length of the condo and it was amazing to watch the beautiful sunsets in the evenings and then fall asleep listening to the waves. It was a dream vacation being right on the beach and the kids loved the pool. We were also really close to shopping (Winn Dixie is a 5 minute walk), restaurants and activities (amazing miniature golf just down the street!). We also visited Busch Gardens and the Florida Aquarium in Tampa, which were both less than a hour drive away. We will definitely be staying here again!"

  • Amazing location, ideal accommodation!

    "This was our third stay at Ocean Sands, but our first with this owner. She was easy to deal with, prompt with responses, and even provided local brochures when she mailed the keys to us. She contacted us shortly after arrival to ensure our satisfaction, and encouraged us to contact her if any issues arose. The unit itself is spacious, very clean, and comfortable. Although the building itself is older, the unit's bright tile floors, newer carpets in bedrooms, and flat screen TVs gave an updated feel. The view of the Gulf from the 30 foot 11th floor balcony is unparalleled! We spent countless hours watching early morning walkers, beach frolickers, and mesmerizing sunsets. You truly can't beat the location. The amenities offered include a larger sized pool with a lovely deck, surrounded with palm trees and lots of lounge chairs. As well, there is a large tiki hut, charcoal grill, shuffleboard area, and covered parking. The owner also provided free wi-fi and long distance calls. The location of the building is excellent. John's Pass and Publix grocery store are minutes' drive, and there are lots of restaurants and shops in close walking distance. Down the coast are St. Pete Beach, Treasure Island and a drive up the coast brings you to Reddington, Indian Shores, Indian Rocks, and Clearwater - lovely short drives. We have been coming to Florida for 5 years now, since our oldest son was a baby. Now with a new baby, we still find Ocean Sands meets our needs perfectly, in all areas. We have booked again for next Spring as we were so pleased with this unit and the owner's hospitality and attentiveness! You won't be disappointed with this unit!"

  • Great experience

    "I wanted to say thank you for sharing your home with us. This unit is clearly your home away from home and treated as such and we treated it that way as well. The unit was clean with a well-stocked kitchen and the complex is very well looked after as well the beach is wonderful. Watching the Dolphin’s daily from the balcony was another special treat. The location is great for walking, ording in food or making it yourself in the kitchen. Coffee on the balcony in the mornings while wave and people watching was fabulous and the walks on the beach morning and night were a great experience. Could not have been a better way to relax for a week. We really enjoyed our stay and will recommend it to others and be back if we are in the area and the timing works. Thanks again. Ken, Jo, Tara and Aiden (4 month old’s first beach trip)"
