Great place to relax, enjoy the water in an upscale, well maintained condo
This is a WATERFRONT LOCATION
Lovely, upscale, and very well maintained property. It is immaculately clean, completely renovated and everything is new or newer inside: newly decorated and newly furnished. 1 bedroom/2 bath condo that sleeps 4. The condo has 755 SF of air conditioned space plus another 120 SF non-air conditioned screened front porch. The condo is located on a second level with another level above (townhouse style). There are 13 steps to the front door and approximately 13 small steps to the master bedroom on the second level. The condo faces the water and is only 20 feet away from the Madeira Beach Yacht Club marina on Boca Ciega Bay and the Gulf Beach is only one short block away across the street (Gulf Blvd.). The wireless Internet is complimentary. There is a new queen size bed with a new mattress in the bedroom and a new full size couch-bed in the living room. All of the bed sheets are good quality, high thread count sheets.
The bath and beach towels are also new and are excellent quality. I provide you enough towels for your entire stay. There are two large flat panel TVs in the condo, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, both with over 125 high definition channels. The TV in the living room is a big 50 inch LED 1080p Smart TV with WiFi.
This condominium is located in a gated, inter coastal yacht club community with a security gate and security in the coveted Madeira Beach Yacht Club. The main entry gate is very near your condo and provides easy access to the beach. This condo has great views of sailboats, cabin cruisers and sealife from your screened porch. Every room in the condo has this great view. Nothing like rolling over in bed and waking up to a view of the inter coastal and Gulf waters.
This condo is my second home for a few times of the year, so the condo already has provisions from my and other people visiting the condo. The condo is very well maintained, making for a very pleasant and comfortable stay. I am a military retiree who lives in Hawai‘i (sorry nothing here to rent from me) who visits kids and grandkids living in the Seminole and Tampa area. The unit shows good taste in the decor and comfort of the property. There are two light weigh bathrobes (great for Florida) for your use. There are several luxury-hotel quality wooden hangers in the bedroom for your use. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with a double-sided fridge with a water and ice dispenser, granite countertops, marbled tiled backsplash, Italian under-mount double sink, new faucet, new stainless steel dishwasher, new microwave, 2 new coffee makers: 1 high-end French espresso machine and 1 regular coffee machine that makes typical American coffee. There is also a new double-sided toaster.
Relax in the inter coastal sea breezes and watch local dolphins/manatees from your screened porch. If you like to fish, there are 4 designated fishing piers with a table and water to clean your fish. These piers are also lighted at night for night fishing. The condo also has an in-unit washer/dryer.
The exterior windows and doors were recently replaced with new double-pane hurricane-proof windows/doors which aid in keeping it nice and quiet inside. New luxurious wooden and curtain treatments dress up the windows.
You will enjoy resort-style living with 2 heated pools, a Club house, fitness center, sauna, his and her steam rooms, showers, dressing rooms and 2 pool tables. This is a very quiet community with a large number of retired guests or owners living here.
You do not need a car to be able to fully enjoy your stay. But if you bring a car, the Club parking is secured. You then will be able to drive short distances and find great places to eat and relax, driving 1.3 miles to John’s Pass for their open-air boardwalk. At John’s Pass you can also book a deep sea fishing boat, cruise up the inter coastal waterway, sail, jet ski or choose regular boating. There is also the possibility to cruise for dinner and a little gambling. There are many restaurants and shops in this area as well as great night-life. Find the Brown Boxer Restaurant and Grill, Silas Dents Steak Restaurant or Harry’s Ice Cream. If you don’t have a car, you can easily walk to most places or use the inexpensive local trolley that runs up and down Gulf Blvd (trolley normally operates 6AM-10PM, Friday and Saturday until midnight). Your choice how you want to enjoy the area. Bottom line—there are at least 10 great restaurants and many shops in a two-block area where this condo is located.
The condo is one half block from Winn Dixie where you can buy any food or supplies that you need. There is a library nearby where you can rent DVDs and books. A new baseball field is out the main Yacht Club entrance where you can see some great local games. If you get tired of that, remember the beautiful white sand Gulf beach of Madeira Beach is a very short walk a block away. Remember there are plenty of beach toys in the condo and several beach towels to take to the beach—I only ask to rinse off yourself and the beach toys before coming home. And Heaven forbid if it rains, there are also umbrellas at the condo.
The Madeira Beach Yacht Club offers boat slips for rent if you bring your boat or you can use the free deep water public ramp three miles away.
The condo has new tiles throughout, including the bathroom shower, which was recently remodeled with a new tiled floor, countertop and walls. I have placed carpeting under the bedroom bed so your feet do not hit the coolness when you first get up in the morning. In the bathroom, I provide a 3-chamber dispenser full of soap, shampoo and conditioner. The dispenser is located on the shower wall.
Also, I have my own gas grill right outside on the dock. This grill is a true infrared grill, which means that your food will be cooked evenly with no cold spots and the meat will hold its juices. The grill is located 20 feet from the condo, right next to the water docks and is labeled 171G. So you can fish, clean your catch, season it and grill it without having to step inside the condo. There is also a table with seating for 4 with a nice blue umbrella on it. And remember, you have a table on the porch and also in the condo.
On the front door, the condo has a digiital lock, which means no keys to carry, just punch in your code to enter the unit. I change the code after every visit and will supply you with a new code right before your arrival. So when you book with me, you go straight to the condo without the need to meet anyone to get a key.
By the way, the air conditioner was replaced in July 2014 and is very quiet.
Upon your arrival at the condo, you may find supplies from both myself as well as from previous guests. If you do, please feel free to use them.
Finally, I am the owner and manager of this condo. I quickly respond to your inquiries. My son also lives within 1 mile of the condo and can respond quickly in-person. I am a frequent VRBO traveler, so I try very hard to offer you what I'd like to be offered when I travel.
Thank you for reading!!! Also, thank you for your business, safe travels and Enjoy!!!
Special Note For 4th of July, 2018 Travelers::
In 2018, 4th of July falls on a Wednesday. I have a special price for a week-stay from Saturday July 1-8 or any weekly stay that includes July 4th. As usual, this is a very fun week here at Madeira Beach. There will be fireworks and life music on the beach. There will also be fireworks adjacent to our property, at Madeira Beach City Hall, right on the Bay. These Bay fireworks are always more spectacular than the beach fireworks and you can watch them right from the outside of my property. Simply, grab a chair and enjoy the great fireworks extravaganza.

About Rob Moore
I spent 26 years in the US Air Force living all over the world. While in the Air Force and after retirement, I traveled to many vacation locations and saw all variations. My family and I really appreciated those locations that went above and beyond rather than just trying to have four walls and a roof. I now live in Hawai‘i where I was last posted by the military. My children and grandchildren now live in the Tampa / Seminole area..
Rob Moore purchased this Condo in 2017

Great Location with Wonderful Views!
We stayed here during April/May 2018. This condo is only minutes from the beach which was so convenient. The facility grounds are immaculate and secure which we we really liked. Loved the master bedroom and quality kitchen. The owner also had a local property representative who was responsive when needed, and a pleasure to deal with.
Vacation April 2018
What a great place for relaxation! No problems at all and would stay here again. Thank you Mr. Moore for providing a home away from home to enjoy. The master bedroom and bath upstairs was a pleasant surprise. We looked forward to our coffee every morning on the screened in balcony which faces the inter-coastal. So sorry to have to leave! Aloha
Great Location! Close to the Beach!
We spent 10 days at this condo and enjoyed it very much. The location can't be beat if you like to get to the beach quickly by foot. The view from the unit was also nice.....lots of boats and water views. Grocery store and library across the street and many good restaurants nearby. The owner was great to work with as well. We would certainly consider returning again.
