It was an absolute pleasure renting this beautiful condo from the Fleming's. The condo is on the 9th floor of a well maintained 2 tower complex directly on Madiera beach. The condo management team is also second to none as the pool, jacuzzi pool, tiki hut and the rest of the amenities and grounds are flawlessly maintained.
The condo itself is immaculate with the previously mentioned granite counter tops and other high end extras like the new stainless steel appliances, flat panel HD televisions, beautifully tiled glass door walk in shower, etc.
The huge balcony overlooks the gulf of Mexico where you can sit with a drink in the evenings and watch dolphins, boats, surf fishing, and the lighthouse in the distance.
No need to travel to look for a better beach as right out the back door of the condo is the perfect beach with the finest of white sand, crystal clear water with small waves in a family friendly environment. There was an umbrella, coolers and other extras supplied to make for the perfect day on the beach in the bathtub warm water.
St Johns pass is only a few blocks away with shopping, tons of restaurants, etc. Make sure to stop at the Cuban Paradise cigar shop and coffee bar for the perfect coffee and hand rolled cigars I've found anywhere. The Conch Republic restaurant down the road has incredible food and drinks at reasonable prices to add to the many fond memories of our stay.
I'll definately be back again and highly recommend this condo.
PS. Make sure to ask Matt for some fishing tips :)
We have stayed at Ocean Sands before but Matt's Condo has to be the best we have seen. It turned out to be exactly as was described and Matt was a pleasure to deal with. Our party was made up of and elderly couple, my wife and I and our teenage son. The condo was clean, well stocked with accessories and had plenty of room and Madeira Beach had a lot to offer to keep everyone interested. Thanks again and we will definitely return.
Even though we arrived to the first showers of tropical storm Debby, we still had a WONDERFUL stay. The condo was truly a home away from home, well supplied, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The first three rainy days passed quickly as we played board games & cards, watched movies, talked, and just relaxed. The owners even called to make sure we had what we needed to weather the storm. As the rain cleared, the beach could not have been better. The remaining waves were perfect for boarding , the chairs and umbrellas provided shade when needed, and we all quickly slipped into beach mode and thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our stay.

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I just returned from a wonderful two week vacation in your condo. It was everything we imaged it would be. The condo is exactly as it looks in the pictures with no unpleasant surprises!
If you want to watch the dolphins you won't be disappointed. You could say you swam with the dolphins as they come pretty close to shore. The sunsets were beautiful.
The 30 ft balcony was exceptional and having the hurricane shutters is an asset as it gets pretty hot in the afternoon. Just put the shutters half way down just enough to keep the sun of you.
There are beach chairs, umbrella's and even a cooler for you to take to the beach. These are at the condo for your use. Win Dixies is just a short walk away. (Which we loved)
A lounge chair for the balcony would be a added feature as I would have loved to be able to do lie down in the sun on the balcony.
We highly recommend this condo! You won't be disappointed!
My husband and I just returned home after spending three wonderful weeks in this condo. There is nothing but good things to say about the lovely couple that own it and how relaxing it is just to be there and sit on the terrace watching the porposes swim by. The condo is immaculate and ready for use the minute you arrive. We ate dinner out every night but you can certainly cook in the beautiful kitchen. The beaches are perfect for walking and the swimming pool and hot tub are just wonderful. If you are thinking about renting in Tampa, please get intouch with Matt, I assure you that he will give you all the time you need for questions. We are going back next year for a month or two. Don't miss out on this condo.
