About the property

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


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. 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. 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, 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 date stay that includes July 4th. This listing has been updated with the correct price for the 4th of July week. 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 Madeira Beach

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.

A very clean, neat, quiet and well-equipped condo.

  • 4 of 5

We've been staying at the MBYCC for over 13 years at several other units and Marc Gomez's is by far the one we'll be using from now on. Being on the marina side of the complex makes for a peaceful environment as opposed to the condos on Rex Place which are on the busy street and across from athletic fields and playgrounds.

Others we've rented presented numerous problems and challenges, mainly involving neglect by the owners. One condo's A/C broke down and we had to move to another, then on another occasion when there was a cold snap, the heat didn't work. Other units were somewhat dirty and needed refreshing from their original 1970s furnishings and mechanicals.

Marc's condo has been freshened up with newer faucets, mosaic tile in the kitchen and bath and modern appliances including a large side-by-side fridge featuring filtered water and ice through the door. The bed is a regular double size but very comfortable. There are two sofa beds in the living room. WiFi is very fast and having Netflix to watch on the huge flat screen TV is a plus. The A/C worked well plus ceiling fans are available for use.

At the beginning of our two-week stay the toaster malfunctioned and I messaged Marc and he had a new four-slice toaster delivered from Amazon in two days. That is such a refreshing improvement over the other units we've stayed at! Thank you, Marc! We'll be back next year!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

I loved this condo, had most everything I needed. All the toiletries and laundry were provided. With my Grandaughter playing in softball tournament, the washer and dryer came in very handy. The beach towels were wonderful. Loved the free internet, kitchen, and shower. Really, everything was just perfect for us. Would love to stay there again, if ever in the area.

Great location, ground floor and lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

I've been to this area for almost 11 years. Stayed in at least 7 condo's at MBYC. This one is among the top 2. Some have complained about the bed, but Scandinavians love hard beds. Slept like a log for 2 weeks. Close proximity to food store, library, and of course the beach. The owner was quick to reply to questions. Hope it's avaiable next time. I'll be back.

clean unit, fast wifi, great location, nicely furnished, beach across the street

  • 5 of 5

We are returning to Marc's condo after almost three years. It still looks and feel the same. Awesome!!! The owner has been able to beautifully maintain this unit to rent-able quality. This condo was ideal for my husband and I three years ago, and it's still ideal today. The property is clean, nicely decorated and fully stocked with everything we needed. The wifi internet is fast. The large wifi tv in the living room is very nice with access to Netflix. The complex has two pools. We went to the closest pool -about 150 feet away. It was heated (very nice) and clean with several chairs. It was fun. A few times, we went for a walk, then went to the on-site gym and ended up relaxing in the sauna and hot tub. Overall, we all loved the condo so much we didn't dine out at some of the nice nearby restaurants - instead, we enjoyed cooking in the condo's nice kitchen and ate out on the porch overlooking the water and yachts. We noticed a previous review about dirty couches and moldy smell and were a bit hesitant to rent, but the couches are clean and the unit smelled great. We highly recommend this property!!! Thanks Marc. We had a great time. Already planning a return trip next June. We'll be in touch!!!

Could have been better.

  • 2 of 5

Small unit as described, however very musty. I had to purchase air refreshments to obscure the smell. The bathroom shower curtain and liner is disgusting. Dirty and mold. No need of this. Any cleaner should have told owner and replaced it. Chesterfield and Live Seats are filthy, we put sheets on them to cover them in order to sit on. Should be cleaned.

Would not stay here again due to these things.

Owner's Response: Let's get something clear: the only reason that you are giving me a two-star review is because you wanted me to refund you money based on your erroneous allegations that you purchased refundable damage insurance for the rental, via vrbo. That was not true. I called vrbo and they couldn't confirm it. Then, I asked you to send me proof of the purchased damage insurance policy and you didn't. When you purchase damage insurance, vrbo sends both, you and I, a confirmation email. I never received it. Neither did you. And, as I mentioned earlier, VRBO did not have any proof of you purchasing it. Now, specifically addressing your negative remarks about the condition of my unit: First, the shower curtain and liner have been replaced. They were never reported to me as being dirty because they weren't, but I went ahead and replaced them anyway. Second, the couches have been shampooed already. Third, the bad smell that you are referring to is flat out wrong. I stay in this unit regularly and I even visited the unit right after you left and didn't find any bad or musty smell to it. The maid always does a great job keeping the unit very clean. She did a deep cleaning of the unit anyway after showing her your vindictive words. Other recent renters have occupied this property and never mentioned anything about the musty smell, mold in the shower curtain and liner or dirty couches. To future renters: This unit is very clean. The negative words provided by this renter are malicious and insincere. Please read the remaining 30+ reviews that have been published here to truly find out the condition of my property. Thank you!!!
