About the property

450 sq.ft, 1 bed/1bath water front, beach across the street

THIS IS THE LINK TO A SECOND PROPERTY in the same complex: vrbo 732842

back to current listing (VRBO 603643)

This is a WATER FRONT LISTING with an opening date: July 3, 2014.

Lovely, upscale, and very well-maintained property. It is located at ground level; it is immaculately clean, completely renovated, everything is new or newer inside: newly decorated and newly furnished, 1 bedroom/1 bath condo, sleep 4. There is a $100 fee if four (4) guests occupy the property. The condo has 450 sq.ft of air conditioned space plus another 120 sq.ft non-air conditioned (screened front porch). It faces the water of the Madeira Beach Yatch Club marina; and the beach is one short block away -across the street (Gulf blvd). The wireless internet is complimentary and it is fast Internet (10 Mbs), There is a new full size bed with a new mattress in the bedroom and a new queen size couch-bed in the living room. All of the bed sheets are good quality sheets.

The bath and beach towels are also new. I provide you with enough towels for your entire stay. There are two flat panel TVs in the condo: one in the living room and one in the bedroom, both with over 300 high definition channels. The tv in the living room is big and it was purchased new in June 2014. It is a LED 50'1080p Smart HDTV with Wi-Fi. I also provide you with a newer DVD player.

This condominium is located on a gated, intracoastal, yacht Club community with a security guard and a security gate in coveted Madeira Beach Yacht Club.

This condo is located on the water, very close to the main entrance gate and the beach (across the street). It has views of sailboats and cabin cruisers from your large screened porch.

This is my second home during a few weeks out of the year, so the condo is fully stocked, very well maintained, and not your typical rental, which makes for a very pleasant and comfortable stay. I am a Florida attorney with good taste, which shows in the decor and comfort of the property. There are 2 thin bath robes -great for Florida weather for you to use. There are also several luxury-hotel quality wooden hangers in the bedroom closet. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with a double-sided fridge with water and ice on the door dispenser, granite countertop, marble tiled backsplash, Italian under-mount double sink, new faucet, new stainless steel stove, new stainless steel dishwasher, new microwave, and two new coffee makers: one high end ($500) french expresso machine and one regular machine that makes your typical American coffee. There is also a new double-sided toaster.

Relax in the Intracoastal 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 lighted so that if you want to fish at night, you can. This condo also has an in-unit washer/dryer. I provide you with liquid washing detergent.

The exterior windows and exterior door have been recently replaced with new double-pane hurricane proof windows/door, which provides a very nice and quite inside. New luxurious wooden blinds dress up the windows.

Enjoy resort style living with 2 heated pools, clubhouse, fitness center, 2 pool tables, his and hers steam room, showers and dressing room, sauna. This is a very quiet community with a large number of guests retired and living here.

You do not need a car to be able to fully enjoy your stay at this property; however, if you bring one, parking is very secured. You will then be able to drive short distances and find great places to eat and relax; like for instance: drive 1.3 miles to John's Pass, with a Key-West style ambience, very popular, open-air, boardwalk tourist area, where you can go deep-sea fishing, cruising up the Intracoastal Waterway, sailing, jet skiing and boating. There are also casino dinner cruises, as well as several restaurants and many shops. Great night life too. Alternatively, if you don't bring a car, you could still walk to John's Pass or take the local trolley. Entirely up to you.

Ten restaurants (including two sushi and two Italian) and many shops are within a 2-blocks walk.

Trolley/bus transportation is available 1 block away, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. (to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays).

Walk to absolutely anything you need. The property is 1 short block from the white-sand of Madeira Beach. There is a library right outside the property where you can rent DVDs and books. There is a nice, large Winn Dixie supermarket 1/2 block away where you can buy groceries and any other essentials that you may need. There are plenty of good restaurants and unique local shops from one block to two blocks away.

The condo has everything you might need to relax and enjoy your time here. Our Madeira Beach Yacht Club offers boat slips for rent. If you bring your own boat but don't want to pay to put it in the water at our Yacht Club, there is a very nice and deep public ramp 3 miles away, with free boat access.

I provide you with several beach towels, 1 new beach umbrella and 2 new beach chairs. You can take these items to the beach if you'd like; I would appreciate if you take care of them and rinse them off before you put them away. You can use a water tower (for public use) located at the entrance/exit to the beach.

If raining, I also provide you with an umbrella.

The condo has tiles throughout, including the bathroom shower, which was remodeled with new tiled flooring, tiled countertop and tiled walls. I provide you with 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 the porch. This is a true infrared grill, which basically means that your food will be cooked evenly with no cold spots and the meat will hold its own juice. This grill is located 20 ft. from your front porch, right next to the water/Marina and it is labeled 175C; So, you can fish, clean your catch, season it and grill it without having to step a-foot inside the condo. There is a table with seating for 4 as well as a large umbrella in the grill area, next to the water/Marina (20 feet from your ground level porch). There is also a table with seating for 4, in the porch and inside the condo.

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. (I.e: cooking oil, vinegar, spices, trash bags, laundry and dish detergent,etc)

On July 1, 2014, I replaced the condominium front door lock with a digital door lock, so you don't need a key to access the inside of the condo; all you need is a code. I will give it to you right before arrival since I change the code frequently. In other words, when you book with me, you go straight to your condo without the need to meet anyone.

Also in July, 2014, I replaced the old air conditioning unit (inside and out) for a new one. It is a very quite unit.

Finally, I am the owner and manager of this condo. I quickly respond to your inquiries. 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, 2017 Travelers::

In 2017, 4th of July falls on a Tuesday. 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.

NOTE: I ALSO ACCEPT checks, money orders, or PayPal money transfers.

About Marc Gomez

I am an attorney from Florida. I bought this property to use it as a second home on occasions during the year. Currently, I don't stay at the property much; hence, my decision to rent it and benefit from the extra income

Marc Gomez purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marc Gomez chose Florida Central West

second home, beach retreat, boating

What makes this condo unique

You will love this place. There are great views of the marina and yatchs from the front porch. The beach is a short 1 block away. Step outside and enjoy grilling your favorite steak or hamburgers by the water; maybe you'll get to see a manatee and/or dolphin. You can see the water from every room of the condo. I just completely remodeled this property. I put in (July 2014) a new AC unit, new stove, microwave, dishwasher, double-sided fridge, granite countertop in the kitchen, marble backsplash. New queen size bed and mattress, and new sofa bed in the living room. New washer/dryer. New towels and linens. New grill on outside patio, new beach chairs, beach umbrella and cooler. Two new cable tvs with access to netflix.

When we first entered the condo and looked around I found dirty bowls in the kitchen cupboard so I spent my first hour washing all the dishes. The pots and pans has some weird white flaky things in them so those needed cleaning as well. The silverware tray was disgusting (with old food and those same white flakey things) so all silverware and the tray had to be washed. The drawer holding all the cooking/serving utensils was the same (dirty and white flakes) so after cleaning all of those as well I placed them in a big clean bowl instead of the dirty drawer. After I mentioned these things to the owner he told me I could use a rag to clean the drawers....wow! All cupboards and drawers need to be vacuumed and cleaned. Then came the floor....I bought a mop and mopped the floor on our first day....it was BLACK! There were no hand towels in the bathroom so we used kitchen towels to dry our hands. Only wash clothes were in the bathroom and few of them had brown stains on them so I put the whole pile off to the side and we didn't touch them. Besides the dirtiness the condo was cute....a little lacking in the kitchen department...pots and pans are really cheap...no peeler, pizza cutter. One of the 4 slots in toaster is broke. One of the 4 wood chairs is broke. The outside porch is nice, overlooks the water/boats and I would have really enjoyed sitting out there if it wasn't for the 4 LOUD AIR CONDITIONERS directly next to the porch. The owner describes two pools but what he doesn't mention is that the complex is basically a retirement home...we had two toddlers with us and we were 'pushed' out of the big pool by the elderly people and told to go to the smaller pool (which was a hike from the condo) with our kids. You also aren't allowed any toys/floating devices in either pool so this is definitely not a place you want to bring kids. The owner did know btw that we were bringing our toddlers prior to booking. And lastly, we found a COCKROACH in the bathroom. He ran under the washing machine and we spent quite some time trying to track him down but never did. So that haunted me for the rest of our stay. I emailed the owner and he said he sprayed a week ago and that was probably why the roach was there but in my experience spraying KILLS bugs and he made no effort to spray again or have it taken care of. Plus he said "he"...if he meant he personally did it, I would prefer a professional handle these things where I vacation.

Owner's Response: How sad!!! I'm not saddened by the poor and vindictive review that you have given me, but I'm rather saddened by how horrible your life must be in order for you to give me such a poor review. From the beginning, I knew that you were going to be trouble as your negativity showed in every exchanged communication. I should have known better than renting to you; however, I felt so sorry for you -given that you had two young children- that I convinced myself that you needed, and will be appreciative of having, a nice place for the holidays. I was immensely wrong!!! Luckily for me, I have been in business for over 3 years and the majority of my reviews are 5 stars. I will not be addressing your bogus complaints as they lack credibility, honesty, foundation and sencerity. Note to future guests: If you are a potential guest, reading this review and response, I urge you to please take a look at all of my reviews so that you can make an informed decision as to whether or not this is the right property for you. Thank you, owner

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this condo! Just the right size for 2 people with all the amenities needed. Very clean and well maintained. The location is just down the road from John's Pass, which we love. We loved being literally steps from the Bay and the beach across the street. We would definitely recommend staying here. Special thanks to Marc for answering all of our questions prior to our trip !

I was very impressed with the condition of the condo, stress free beautifully decorated, a beautiful view of the water close to the beach. Marc the owner has his heart and soul into accommodating his guests. He was patient and walked me thru the expresso machine. I can't sat enough about this property actually thinking about in the future buying one. Very clean up to date decor and a gracious host what else can u ask for.... thanks again for the wonderful accommodations. Finally an owner who cares about his renters.

Great rental in great location!

A nice, quiet complex with everything I needed(even during a tropical storm). The rental was not far from pool and office, grocery store across the street. I would definitely stay here again!

Great property and excellent view of the water. I've stayed in other units over the years and this was by far the best. Close to the pool and docks so you can enjoy the views. This unit had everything you could need to feel at home. Awesome stay.
