Property description

Our condo is located just steps from the Gulf of Mexico. The most beautiful beaches are found on the West Coast of Florida and have the most beautiful white powder sand in the state. The Sunsets are spectacular and the Sunrises cannot be described. Madeira Beach itself has paddle board, cabana, and umbrella rentals. The public restrooms are maintained by our own small island city and are very clean. There is a convenience store on the corner and restaurants, pubs/bars, within walking distance.

Our unit is located on the ground floor of a cozy two level condo building. Since there are only nine units there is much privacy. You will also have one assigned parking space in front of the building. The building is a horseshoe layout with a lovely courtyard that is appointed with a table, chairs, chase lounge, and grill. You can cook and eat outside in our island breeze. If you are not up to the beach there is a large sundeck on the second level with a table, chairs and sun-loungers.

The unit itself is 490 sq. ft. with a large bedroom with two new queen size beds. There is a ceiling fan and stand alone fan.
Just for fun, and if you haven't you should check out the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel Casino 💰💰and nearby bingo parlor's. No matter what your age or economic situation is its a hoot! A friend says "it's not just about the beach ya know!". She is absolutely correct 🎉👑💘🍻🍱🍭🍩🎠🚋⛵️

Our units are steps from the beach. There are fun bars with live music within walking distance where you will find the lively locals enjoying life. John's Pass is only one mile away and has retail shops for every budget/taste and several restaurants that range from chains (Hooters/Bubba Gump) to fine dining. JPass is also appropriate for children of all ages. There are bars with dancing, karaoke, and live music. This is where you will rent a boat, go on a dolphin tour, deep sea charters, group fishing, parasailing, jet ski's, pirate boat cruises, souvenir and candy shops. There is so much to do and see in a five mile radius that I am unable to list everything here. Contact me for a full list that suits your particular interest. You will be able to experience the “old Florida” feel in beautiful well-appointed comfort while you explore the reason we live here year round.
You wil be 45 minutes from Busch Gardens/Adventure Island Water Park (Tampa), Disney and Universal properties are only 1.5 hours away (Orlando). Downtown St. Petersburg is where you will find high end night life, museums, excellent shopping, vintage and junking. Literally, there is something for everyone. Whatever you do ~ do NOT miss a trip to the Candy Kitchen. They have candy that people claim that they haven't seen since they were kids! Really!! A woman told me so herself and I'm guessing she had to be 90+. Oh, and they have in-house made ice cream.

The Amish Ice Cream Shoppe is within walking distance of the condo too. Crazy yummy and they also sell Amish bread, cheese, soup and other groceries.

Across the street at our beach you can paddleboard, rent a cabaña or umbrella and have the use of a beach radio with Bluetooth, wonderful oversized beach towels and an ice chest for your beverages and snacks. There are showers and clean restroom facilities at the beach too. Walk a little bit down the beach and you will come across a snack shack that some say have the best burgers in town.

Once your toes are in the warm and softest sand on the planet you will be lost forever. The clean air and sand will carry you to your happy place.

Eat in, or go out for dinner there are restaurants and price ranges for every appetite and the grocery is just down the street at the Tom Stuart Causeway. There is a convenience store on the corner (Hess) that has incidentals and tasty pizza/subs. We shop here before crossing to the beach!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Our family moved to Tampa, Florida in 2002 from Dallas, Texas. We purchased our condo's so that we could stay at the beach anytime we could get away. We are now sharing them with others so they can see for themselves why we love living here. Our house in Tampa is only 35 minutes to Madeira Beach!

Why the Owner Chose Madeira Beach, FL, USA:
We looked up and down the Gulf Coast for the perfect getaway for our family and we decided that Mad Beach was perfect for our laid back lifestyle. Sure we could have chosen a large fancy condo but we love that there are only nine units in our community. It's a perfect respite from the crazy buzz of our everyday lives. We want to offer this opportunity to like minded folks.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Small private community with parking spaces literally 30 feet from your front door. 90 minutes from Disney and Universal, and 45 minutes to BuschGardens and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel Casino. You can get to a bingo parlor about 5 minutes away. We have spas, hair & nail salons, as well as the long pier where I saw a dumb guy pull in a hammerhead shark. Really!! Right on to the pier where we were standing. Only in Florida folks.🙀😎☀️🐟🐠🐡🐚
