About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Sleeper Sofa, Gulf Front Balcony

Nestled in between Popular Clearwater Beach and World Famous Johns Pass this hidden treasure in Indian Shores will provide a relaxing, memorable vacation for your family. Bring your suitcase and a world of adventure awaits.

We purchased the condo in July 2014 and have updated the condo so that most everything is brand new.

It is the perfect getaway to sit on the beach or your private balcony and relax or hop on the bus stop right outside your door and visit Clearwater Beach along with The Marine Center and Learn about Winter and his famous Dolphin 'Tale'. Visit the sugar sand sand beach and hit the famous restaurant on Clearwater Beach. Frenchy's come to mind!

Travel 8 miles south to Johns Pass and have some wings at Hooters or test your Trivia at that restaurant called 'Bubba Gumps' or take a gambling excursion or go deep sea fishing on one of the many charters. For the more adventurous try parasailing or rent a jet ski. Hop on the pirate ship and look for dolphins or just a Dinner Cruise would work. For the gambling crowd we have Derby Lane Greyhound racing and Poker room with the famous 'buffet. Take in a game of the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers; the NHL Tampa Bay Lightening; or the MLB Rays, all of which are a short distance away. We are also the home of spring training for the Yankees, the Phillies and the Blue Jays and a PGA Tour stop.

Just a 45 minute ride to Ybor City and downtown Tampa with nearby Busch Gardens and less than 2 hours to all the major attractions in Downtown Disney and Orlando.

About Owner/Property Manager

We make our home in Winter Haven, Florida, but we love the beach too! The sunsets here are awesome! We have 11 grandchildren that enrich our lives.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2014

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Florida Central West

Close enough for friends and family to take advantage of too. Our Realtor lined us up two properties to look at and we just fell in love with the whole picture, the unit was bright, community cheerful and the location was terrific. When we walked in the door and saw the view, we were amazed. Across the street is a Pirate golf putt putt that children will love.

What makes this condo unique

It may become our retirement home someday.

a nice place for a relaxing stay on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this rental. The beach was great and for the most part, the property is comfortable and convenient. There are not very many stores and restaurants around this area, but the trolley is pretty convenient and inexpensive to use. We could hear the renters above us as they moved about, but it wasn't that distracting.

Fall get away

  • 5 of 5

Was very pleased with this condo! Working with Tonya was very easy and she was truly helpful!!! Check in was simple, right across the street at Real Estate office (the ladies in office were nice and gave great recommendations as well). Had a tough time finding parking spot-had we looked at map would have saved us the confusion. And now to the good stuff! The condo was very clean and so spacious! It was just my husband and myself, but was plenty of room for more people. The view was perfection! Saw dolphins swimming off beach twice while there. Front row seat to amazing sunsets every night. Condo had everything we needed, plus so much more we never touched. Close to elevator (never had a problem with any noise) and laundry room. Pool area was nice, although we never used. Not to much in walking distance, but we like to get out and explore anyway. Was so nice to walk the beach every morning, best way to exercise in my book! I would highly recommend staying here, from great owners, comfy condo, quiet area, and easy access to Clearwater/St. Pete's. If you stay, eat at The Pud!! Although we never had anything bad, this place was our fav (ate there 3 times). Also, gotta get dessert at Haze Ice cream shop.

Thank you for sharing your home with us Tonya! Everything was great:)

The condo was wonderful. It had all you need to have a great stay at the beach. Location was excellent as was everything else. The high table and chairs on balcony are perfect and can't be beat for early morning coffee, lunch or just listening to the sounds of the gulf! We had an excellent stay and are looking forward to our return visit in Sept.

Legend holds that a pirate named John LeVique was the first European to 'settle' the Madeira Beach area. Today, this Gulf of Mexico beach city, just west of St. Petersburg, is best known for the sea-themed John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, which serves up shops and eateries and a 1,100-foot boardwalk along the Intracoastal. Madeira's 2.5-mile beach attracts devotees of sun and sea, and fishing in the primary sport activity. More grouper is brought into John's Pass than any other place in the state. 

In addition, each October, the community hosts the Seafood Festival at John's Pass, which attracts as many as 130,000 visitors to its celebration of food, music, and arts and crafts. Madeira Beach is part of a small barrier island community along Florida’s Central Gulf Coast. It is conveniently located within walking distance of famous John’s Pass Village, restaurants, beach bars and shops. Madeira Beach is also easily accessible from Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa.

For the kids, only 10 miles away is the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is with dolphin Winter and Hope from the movie. It' a wonderful place for a visit for the day.
