Waterfront Beach paradise for couples, families and pet friendly

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,700 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 30 nights


About the property

3 Bdrm 3 Bath - Seasonal - can spread legal minimum over multiple visits

This beautiful townhome is only two blocks from pristine white sand beaches and within easy walking and biking distance of dozens of quaint coffee ships, restaurants and bars. Local Ordinances have a minimum rental requirement, but we can spread your rental over multiple visits.

This location is the best of both worlds - with the white sand beach so close, but with a private back yard and boat dock for your children or pets to play in, launch the kayak or catch some fish.

The house is furnished as our own private beach home with lots of custom touches - not furnished as a typical rental property.

We have lots of great beach toys and a big wheeled cart to carry them the short walk to the beach. Also, Canoes, Kayaks, bikes and fishing equipment.

Our 23'Grady White and 35' Island Packet Catamaran are also available with a Captain.

About Laurie

Our family lives in the Tampa Bay area and has vacationed on these Beaches for over 40 years. We know all the best and local spots to relax, have fun and dine on fresh seafood. We live in paradise and love sharing it with new friends. Feel free to ask us about our recommendations.

Laurie purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Laurie chose Madeira Beach

Only 30 minutes from Tampa Int'l airport. This 2-story townhome is a perfect location because its 1 block from the beach, so there is no road noise, and is situated on the water to enjoy the wildlife and gorgeous sunsets. We enjoy the large patios that are perfect for reading with a cup of tea or gathering with friends. Rain or shine we get to enjoy the waterfront wildlife and beauty.

What makes this townhome unique

We enjoy a beach walk or bike ride to Johns Pass Village for Sunday brunch. Make reservations at our favorite owner/chef restaurants called the Pearl or Waltz, and can walk to the docks across the street from Waltz to get fresh grouper and snapper right of the fishing boats. and who knows end up at the drumming festival every Sunday night at sunset.

This is a pet-friendly neighborhood with many restaurants, coffee shops and bars within walking distance that will offer your pet water and a snack!

Great townhome

  • 5 of 5

The place is exactly as showed on VRBO photos: clean, roomy, welcoming and family-oriented (i.e. ping pong, pool table, board games etc).

Big selling points to us were: location (2 minute walk to the beach), all the beach stuff already there (chairs, umbrellas, fishing poles, etc), the kayak, the bikes and the dock on intercoastal waterway. We were also able to go do some deep sea fishing with a chartered boat that picked us at the dock. The big garage was convenient as well.

Perfect vacation and thanks for making your townhome available.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of a better place to have spent a "special" family vacation! Your lovely townhome is the perfect get-away from a stressful world!

As soon as we entered the front door, we sensed an air of joy, well being and happiness!

All the bright colors and tasteful decor seemed to say "Let's celebrate Life and being together!" A place where only "fun" memories are allowed!

We enjoyed watching the sea gulls soar and pelicans glide above the water before their comical, ungraceful "SPLASH" landings in the marina bay. An Osprey perched on highest point near the dock, as we enjoyed our evenings watching the sunset with a glass of wine, and listening to the peaceful sound of the church bell tolling across the water way.

What a view! It was amazing, and we could not have been more pleased with our stay!

The kitchen was great, and well stocked with condiments. The bedroom accommodations were excellent, and the master suite was exceptional! All even better than what the pictures can show. There was a variety of books, games, video's, pool table, bicycles, ping pong, fishing equipment, and even a wind surfer. Our 2 teenagers were never bored!

This is an ideal location in a quiet, safe neighborhood, yet close enough to easily bike to the restaurants and quaint shops of John's Pass or the well maintained public beach. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Laurie and Greg in person, although we hope to have that opportunity on a future stay. We so greatly appreciate the warmth of their hospitality and Laurie's gift of creating such a FANTABULOUS home!

This was a place we truly felt totally relaxed, and uplifted. For me, it was a place of renewal, as I enjoyed the peacefulness and quiet serenity that left us with wonderful memories we will never forget!

a real treasure

  • 5 of 5

its rare in life you have a vision of a perfect scenario and the end result turns out even better. that was the case of our stay in Madeira Beach and my encounter with the owner. i had searched for days to find the perfect accomodations for my family to all come together from NJ, Illinois, and Iowa to celebrate my daughters graduation from nursing school at South University in Tampa when i had almost given up i then came across VRBO #215413 and SCORE. an awesome home on a little marina in an amazing neighborhood with so much to offer. my favorite things...the church bells, afternoon naps on the balcony, playing ping pong in the garage, biking to Johns Pass, and cooking & laughing and cooking & laughing some more in the HUGE kitchen/ breakfast bar area.
