Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Our Las Brisas three bedroom/two bath condominium rental is among the larger units available in the Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater Beach area. It is easy to get to from area airports and is 30 minutes from Tampa International with Clearwater Beach to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south.

It is a short hike to St. John's Pass, a popular destination with many restaurants, fishing charters, parasailing, waverunner rentals, and an old fashioned boardwalk lined with interesting shops.

The beach is famous for its soft sugar sand and year-round near perfect weather. Numerous attractions are nearby including great golf, Busch Gardens (30 minutes), Disney World (90 minutes), Tampa Aquarium, planetarium, art museums, live theatre, and plenty of water sports, rentals, and activities within minutes. Not to mention miles of open beaches and the Gulf of Mexico right at your feet.

Las Brisas is a modern, five-story, 40-unit condominium with under-building private parking, easy access, elevator service, a beachside heated swimming pool, Tiki Hut lounge areas with outdoor grills, and a fabulous beach. For larger family gatherings, we have access to several units in this building.

About Bob Matthews

My wife and I and our three kids are some of the few owners of rental property in the area that are also local residents. We live in Tampa and take care of and use the unit ourselves so you can be sure that it is always in great shape. The kids are 5,4 and 1 and would love to use the condo every weekend. It is a great place to take the kids and relax with beautiful views of the ocean and sunsets.

Bob Matthews purchased this condo in 2007

Why Bob Matthews chose Madeira Beach

We chose Madeira Beach because of the beautiful white sand beaches and the close proximity of John's Pass where you can enjoy anything from walking the boardwalk and shopping to enjoying a nice meal to taking advantage of the many water sports and activities that John's Pass offers

What makes this condo unique

You will enjoy outstanding views from the living room, kitchen, Master Bedroom and of course on the balcony that spans the width of the unit. While your staying be sure to stop by John's Pass, eat at some of the best seafood restaurants and take some time to enjoy some of the amusement parks that are within 1-2 hours away.

Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay in this unit. We would definitely stay again. The closeness to the beach along with the view was amazing. I found the unit very clean when arriving. We only had one issue with the air conditioning at the beginning of the week. The owner answered my call right away when I called him about it. He had someone there within 3 hours max and they fixed it right away. We very much appreciated his quick response. We definitely hope too come back!

Nice Location - Not So Nice Condo

  • 1 of 5

This condo is on a truly beautiful stretch of beach. That's where the love ends. When we arrived, the condo was filthy and smelled like every surface had been wiped with a mildewy, mustry rag. The counter tops were tacky and the fake plants were covered with layers of dust. The furnishings were not as pictured, and there was not a comfortable seat to be had in the living or dining area. To be fair, the kitchen appliances were upgraded at sometime, and worked okay..The cooking pots, dishes and glassware were okay, but the flatware was not so great and there were lots of junky kitchen tools, but essentials like tongs and turners were lacking.

This is obviously an older building; but, for the rental cost, we expected better than cheapest quality sheets and towels. Even so, we would have been happy if they had been clean. The bed in the master bedroom was made, but the sheets were disheveled and looked "slept in" I've seen better towels in car washes than were in the bathrooms. Fortunately, we found some better towels on the shelf in the laundry room, but they weren't clean. After washing all the sheets, towels and even bathroom rugs, we purchased cleaning supplies and took care of what the cleaning personnel should have done. We even purchased a new HVAC filter to replace one that was caked on both sides with dust, dirt and grunge.

The Wifi was adequate; but was "Guest Access" and required log in with every use on every device.

We love this stretch of beach on the Gulf; but this condo needs better maintenance and cleaning. We will NOT be back and do not recommend this condo. My rating is one star, only because the field must be filled to submit a review.

Unit was very dirty and workers in there 1/2 hour after check-in time. Also told couldn’t use one bath shower for 24 hours because of caulking. Seriously needs updating. Great locations. Lack of concern when reported concerns to property owner.

Thanks Chris. We really enjoyed our stay and loved the condo! Everything was fantastic. The second parking space came in very handy. We will definitely be back next year.
