Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. We had an incredible stay. The views are beyond stunning, and nothing beats waking up to dolphins jumping in the gulf. We were very happy with the condo’s location and made very good use of the beach and the pool. We were very pleased how well-stocked the condo was. We will definitely be back.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo has been tastefully renewed, everything is clean modern. Everything we needed was there, and the owners emailed several times to make sure we were ok. This end unit is much more private, as you don't have anyone walking past your windows to get to the elevator. You will love it here!

Another wonderful stay in this lovely apartment.

  • 5 of 5

If you’re thinking of booking the apartment you won’t be disappointed, all the reviews below are 100% correct.

This is the second time we have stayed in the apartment and we would not dream of staying anywhere else in Madeira beach. The owners are a pleasure to work with and really make you feel welcome; I can honestly say it feel like a second home to me.

The last review says it’s better than a 5 star hotel and I certainly agree!

Thank you for sharing your home Jack, we hope to return soon.

If you can read, you will have no problems with anything, I highly recommend this condo!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a corner unit and on the top floor. Water everywhere you look. Two large door walls facing the ocean. Sleep feeling you're at the beach! Everything updated.. Has everything you could possibly want. No clutter. Detailed information on how to use everything. Better than a 5 star hotel.

Very Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to the Uk from this lovely property after a really relaxing break. The owner was a pleasure to work with both before and during our stay. The accommodation was bright and spotless in a lovely quiet and friendly complex. There was everything you would need for a comfortable stay with plenty of beach towels and chairs and a really comfy bed. Like the last review we used the second shower as it suited us and for us Brits a kettle is a must which you do not often find in American accommodation so thanks Jack for that. We had a great visit and hope to return.
