About Georges Bourdeau

My wife Michelle (retired teacher) and I (almost retired marketing consultant) love to travel. Our home is in Ontario, Canada. The photo was taken in the BBQ patio at our condo on the beach. We enjoy the Christmas Holidays andl ski most of the winter at our ski condo at Mont Ste-Marie in the Laurentians just North of Ottawa. We try to spend 2-3 months enjoying the warm Gulf water and sometimes sharing with our 3 grown up kids and 2 twin grandchildren...

I'm sure you will enjoy our condo as much as we do and treat it as though it was your own.

Georges Bourdeau purchased this condo in 2011

Why Georges Bourdeau chose Madeira Beach

We have been vacationing all over the world for many years now but over the last few years, we fell in love with the Madeira Beach area and decided to purchase in a clean, not too big, well maintained condominium community. The way of life and security is very similar to our Canadian lifestyle and we feel 'at home' with our many American friends here.

Of course the kids love the proximity to Disneyworld, Busch Gardens and the new Dali Museum when they are not on the beach or sipping a cocktail in the Tiki Hut wher people meet and mingle at 'Happy Hour'. All in all Madeira Beach has the best sand and is close to everything. Being close to the Marina is a plus.

What makes this condo unique

Since we directly overlook the pool and the beach, we can watch the kids right from the balcony... and no worries about sow elevator problems... Many renters/owners vacation at the same time year after year; so everybody is friendly around the pool, BBQ family areas or at the 3-7PM Tiki Hut Happy Hours.

Fihing directly in front of the condo is great as is 'Boogey Board' surfing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr Bourdeau.

We enjoyed our short stay. Thank you for working with us on the standby flying. It worked out for both of us. Have a great day!

On our fifth year here and it's still great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth year staying at this condo and it gets better every time.

Our flight arrived in the morning and the cleaning crew was kind enough to let us store our luggage in the condo while we went across the street to Screwie Louie's to wash down the travel dust and wait for check-in time. You must try the Screwie sauce...it's excellent with fried shrimp. The three shot Bloody Mary isn't bad either...

When the cleaning crew was done we were able to get back "home" and enjoy another wonderful vacation. Several things were new: including the dishwasher (so quiet, we wondered if it was actually on!), washer/dryer, master suite mattress and if I'm not mistaken, some water/bath fixtures.

As always, the kitchen is equipped for a professional chef. We wanted for nothing. There're even pots big enough that we were able to make a great spaghetti dinner for a large group. Plenty of dishes, flatware, knives, grill utensils, glasses, wine glasses, gadgets, pans, pots, baking sheets, you name it.

Any issues you may have are handled by Bill from Best Beach Rentals, he was at the condo within an hour of our phone call about not being able to get the living room TV to work. Simple fix, problem solved.

We did get a couple of rainy days, but even that was fun because we rented some movies from Red Box (just down the street at Winn-Dixie) which we watched on the DVD player while watching the storm roll over the Gulf.

The outdoor grills are outstanding. We used them quite often as we had an excellent grill master stay with us, as well as a friend who is a caterer who stayed in 105. All diets were put on hold. lol

The treasure chest on the balcony---wow! Fun toys for kids and adults alike. Nice beach chairs in the condo also...great for catching some rays on the beach or watching our friend do some fishing....yes, there is fishing equipment in the condo also, what more can you ask for?

We left the A/C off most of the time as you get a great breeze with the doors open.

The actual lay-out of the condo is extremely conducive to privacy. The bedrooms are down a long hallway away from the front living area and kitchen. So, if you just need some quiet time or a nap, you have your own room with a TV.

Another great bonus: walking distance to Winn-Dixie/liquor store, John's Pass and several shops.

Great place, great location, great time. Would highly recommend it to anyone of any age group whether you have children or not.

Owner's Response: Thank you Renée for taking the time to express your views. Always a pleasure to have you visit our home away from home. Glad you noticed the new king mattress... Hate to admit the cost... never knew mattresses could be that expensive... but my wife insisted... well worth it! (PS The 2 queen beds are also new) As of Jan 2018 our kitchen will be completely remodeled with all new cabinets, granite counters and SS appliances... We are spending this next month onsite... Yes the layout was one of the attractive factors in our purchase decision... wow almost 7 years ago. Although we/you love it the way it is, we feel it is important to keep improving. Again thanks Renée for the great review... and who should know better than our most faithful longest-time renter... Georges

Beatiful soul-filling getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at Las Brisas 108! There were 4 of us, 2 couples, celebrating wedding anniversaries. The place is huge! Plenty of space to hang out as a group, and plenty of privacy for the couples! The washer and dryer in the unit was also a bonus!

We ate out some: Dockside Dave's and Screwy Louie's right across the street, The Hut in John's Pass, Guppy's in Indian Rocks, Frenchies and Palm Pavilion in Clearwater. We also cooked in several times. There is a fish market called Key West Seafood very close by, and we got some gorgeous red snapper to put on the grill! We also had burgers on the grill watching the sunset a couple nights! The unit had everything we needed to cook in the condo and also all the necessary grilling utensils. Not a bad meal all week! The Jolly Trolley was a great option for us, and we bought day passes for $5 per person. It runs all the way north to Clearwater Beach south to Pass-a-Grille at St. Pete Beach. It is a fun way to eat, drink and shop your way up and down the coast!

The beach is beautiful, and it's so convenient just to go down one flight of stairs and you're there! The condo has some beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, etc., in the treasure box on the deck, but we rented beach set-up for the week from Tim the Umbrella Man. It was $110 for the week, and he came by several times every day to move the umbrella based on the position of the sun at the time. Well worth it in our opinion! I'm not sure if it was the time of year or if it was the aftermath of the hurricane, but there were dolphins EVERYWHERE! I bet we saw over 100 throughout the week. It was unbelievable!

The pool was great! Super clean and well maintained. We used it several times.

Georges was very responsive to our needs prior to our arrival. We were concerned about Hurricane Irma and any potential damage. Thankfully there wasn't any damage to the unit, and we had a fantastic week. We didn't need anything during our stay, but I am sure he would have been right on top of any request or issue we might have had.

I would definitely recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: WOW! Thanks Sue for the great thorough review. I appreciate you taking the time to do so. As you know we were both worried that Irma would interfere with your planned celebration. So happy for you. You obviously took advantage of all available services. Sunsets by the grill area are my favorites too especially when the dolphins are close by... Hope to have you return soon. Could be your 1st year anniversary at Las Brisas...??? Georges

Great family vacation in Madeira Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful vacation with the family. I have two daughters (10 and 7 years old) and they love the place. The condo is amazing, spacious and has a balcony facing to the pool and the beach. Beautiful views from the balcony, beach is few steps away, you can see dolphins and rays in the beach, awesome!

The two rooms are comfortable and clean, they have TV on it. It has two bathrooms, laundry. A lot of stuff in the kitchen, very useful; even though I didn't use a lot of things. The treasure chest was very convenience for the kids. They use noodles, boards and snorkel masks.

The owner Georges was very nice and helpful in every way. Ann was amazing. Always happy and smiling and helpful. The cleaning woman was a little rude the first day when we arrived to the condo. I recommend to have some beach towels in the condo. It would be very nice.

It was a beautiful stay on the beach! We enjoy walking in the boulevard and eating in restaurants in the area.

I would recommend this condo if you are looking for a vacation close to the beach. Absolutely amazing stay! I will come back again.

Florida Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

41 years old. Vacationed with my wife, and my 12 year old autistic son.

Location was Awesome! Loved the pool. The amount of space for a family is incredible. We feel spoiled now, as we don't ever vacation in hotels any longer. 2 bathrooms makes everything easier.

We're hoping to convince some grandparents to join next year, and get another unit in the condo.

Added bonus: DVD player for evening movies. Beach supplies (we used chair & noodles). We enjoyed days at the beach, and we enjoyed days at water parks, and even made it to Orlando to visit Sea World.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the condo was everything we hoped for. The condo was great and nicely stocked. We had beautiful views from the balcony and the beach was just steps away. We would definitely recommend Las Brisas to anyone and hope to come back. The owner was very nice and accommodating. It was like home away from home!
