About the property

This newly renovated condo is in one of Florida's best locations. Unit 311 has new tile floors and shower surround, new sound reduction windows, new furniture, fixtures, paint, A/C, appliances, sinks and counter tops. This excellent location is a three minute walk to a top ranked beach and just as close to John's Pass. John's Pass is a fishing village that features restaurants, bars, shops and water activities for the whole family. The building features a 6th floor work out room with a full view of the Gulf of Mexico. The hot tub and pool are family favorites and the 24/7 concierge service is top rated. The Mad Bay Fish House is a delicious choice for lunch or dinner that sits just steps away from unit 311. Have a relaxing afternoon at the Madeira Bay Resort Spa before taking a sunset walk on the beach. We have enjoyed fully renovating this beautiful unit and are excited to share our spot in paradise with you. This place is one you will want to return to each year.

About Barb Schroeder

Our story started with a visit to Florida in February of 2015. Desperate to get away from snowy Cleveland, we stumbled across the city of Madeira Beach. We fell in love with the area and decided to purchase our own piece of paradise. When we saw unit 311 we knew that it needed a lot of work but we were committed to transforming it into a place that people would enjoy. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Barb Schroeder purchased this condo in 2016

Why Barb Schroeder chose Gulf Shores

Unit 311 is a three minute walk to the Gulf of Mexico and a five minute walk to over 40 shops, restaurants and water activities. This beautiful unit, with it's resort amenities and perfect location make this a one of a kind place to be.

What makes this condo unique

Madeira Bay Resort has friendly employees that staff the concierge desk 24/7. Upon arrival, guests will check in on the 2nd floor. They will be given a code to the key less entry on the door to Unit 311, a free parking pass and other helpful information about the resort and nearby activities. We have the unique benefit of offering our guests help day or night.

Great Wek with Daughter and Family

  • 5 of 5

Great Week with Daughter and Family

Your experience: Absolutely beautiful condo. Everything you could want. Very quiet, amazing views. The front desk was very welcoming and helpful. Printed out our daughter's boarding passes. The owner was easy to work with. Answered any questions we had before we arrived, left a nice note and gift for us. The unit has recently been renovated and looked even better than the photos. One nice feature was the key-less entry. With six of us coming and going, we didn't have to worry about losing a key. We had a great time at the beach and down at John's Pass, which was only a few blocks away. Went parasailing and on a fishing charter. Would also recommend a day trip down to Fort Desoto. An old fort to explore, bike and kayak rentals, and a fantastic beach. One of the first mornings, I realized I was drinking my coffee out of a mug that had been purchased from a gift shop on an Island in Lake Erie where I work-I might actually have sold it to the owners. Sent an e-mail off and they confirmed they visit there often. Small world. Would highly recommend this unit.

Great location and condo

  • 5 of 5

Friendly staff, great location, very comfortable condo for five of us. I'm ready to move to John's Pass now! Loved the "old Florida" vibe of John's Pass and this condo was just steps away from literally everything. Comfortable beds, plenty of room, airy and bright, and a great view - loved watching the sunrise. Definitely recommend this condo and plan to return.

We had an amazing time and would recommended the property to our family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time stay in Madeira Beach. The condo was awesome. Very modern and had a full kitchen for cooking. The condo has two nice size bathrooms which is convienient for a large family. There were six of us and there was plenty of room. The balcony is a double balcony so we were all able to sit outside. The overlook of the marina was great and we saw manatees playing a few times. Prior to my visit I spoke with the owner Barb and asked several questions. She answered in a timely manner and gave me all the answers I needed. The location is in walking distance to several shops and restaurants. The condo even has a digital key pad for keyless entry which was so awesome and saved the hassle of room keys. I hope to come back and visit again in the future.
