Madeira Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and enjoy our beautiful oceanfront condo at Ocean Sands II located in Madeira Beach. Our family purchased the model unit on the 8th floor and it has only been lived in for four months out of the year by one person (our Mom) until 2007. The condo has two bedrooms and two full baths which were recently painted, carpets have been steam cleaned ,new furniture was purchased in 2007. The king-sized mattress is one year old, and the entire kitchen was redone in 2006. The 35' balcony has lounge chairs to let you soak up the sun and a table/chairs to enjoy quiet meals while enjoying a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico. There is even a telescope to view thousands of stars and the moon at night.

Walking distance to many stores, a major supermarket, restaurants and the fabulous "John's Pass" shopping. Trolley service to St. Pete is available to travel down Gulf Blvd. and to visit the shopping malls just 15 minutes away. A beautiful athletic facility is only a five minute walk with tennis courts, paddle ball, three baseball fields, and a basketball court.

Our condo has plenty of maps, travel brochures, and menus (you can call most places and they will deliver to your door). The televisions have been updated, and over seventy five movies and dvds are available for your entertainment. An adequate sound system with many cassettes and cd's is hooked up in the family room for your enjoyment. Plenty of blankets, towels, umbrellas, and sand toys to take to the beach. If you like small sized shells, you will find enough on this beach to fill a bucket. Plan a trip to Ft.DeSoto Beach, thirty minutes away and voted the number one beach in the United States in 2008. We guarantee you will catch pleny of sand dollars if you know how to find them.

The condo has been in our family for years..Mom and Dad loved the location and surrounding areas and bought the showcase unit in building II during the final construction phase of this complex. The full time residents are great and treated our Mom like family for many, many years.

I enjoy staying there because it feels like home.....has every amenity and love all the local restaurants and night life this area has to offer. The shopping is so great too and there are trollies available up and down the gulf blvd....

Stayed for one month. The location was wonderful and the condo was nicely furnished. However, one big drawback for us was no light over the dining table. In the morning, we could not read the newspaper!! When I mentioned this to the owner, she told us to read on the balcony!!! Besides being too chilly, we felt this was a rude answer. At dinner time, it's dark out so, again, we could not see anything. Would not rent there again.

Wonderful Vacation Cono!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in for two weeks. The Condo was very nice and the balcony was wonderful. The bed rooms were spacious, the living area had plenty of room for relaxing and watching TV. Having a glass of wine and watching the sunsets from the very large balcony was my favorite!
The beach was fantastic and the owner had a number of beach chairs, and umbrellas you can use, as well as noodles and beach toys.The heated pool and spa is very large with many lounge chairs. We used the tkiki hut / grill area for a family gathering, the complex has many tables and chairs available to use in that area. The only complaint concerned the twin beds in the 2nd bedroom were very hard and my daughter and son-in-law had trouble sleeping.
There are many restaurants within walking distance and you can drive or take the trolley to John's Pass for shopping and dining. You can also go parasailing, deep sea fishing and take Dolphin cruises from there. There was a grocery and drug store within walking distance as well.
Overall we had an excellent time and highly recommend this clean nicely furnished condo.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from 2 wonderful weeks in this beautiful condo. The pictures do not do it justice. I could have spent my entire vacation on the balcony overlooking the beach and fabulous Gulf but I didn't because there is so much more to do here. The area is close to everything -- and you can walk to shopping and great restaurants. There are also many great shops and restaurants within a short drive.
The beach and the Gulf are probably my favorite things and you are steps away. The Condo is very comfortable and kept in excellent condition by the very attentive owners. Im looking forward to next year.

Just like being at home...

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the property for a week in July. We needed a week of relaxation and a place to recharge ourselves. Upon entering the parking garage, we knew that it was everything that the description said it was going to be. When we entered the unit, it was totally dark due to the weather shutters; but once we located the switch to open them; the room filled with light and the beautiful view of the gulf!! What an amazing view!!!! The interior was exactly what the description said it would be. The pictures do not do it justice! The place was HUGH! Everything was in working order and the kitchen DID have everything you would need to cook if you wanted to. There were views from every room. The gulf from the rear and the bay from the front. The balcony was incredible!!!! It seemed to go on forever with not only a table and chairs, but 2 lounge chairs for relaxing and reading. A closet at the end of the balcony had beach chairs, boogie boards, an umbrella, and buckets, shovels, and toys for little ones. There were restaurants within walking distance as well as many within a short drive of the unit. 5 minutes from the unit was a Publix. What a perk! The owner was just a phone call away if needed. Could not figure out the WIFI and needed to call. She was there to help this techno challenged renter. The unit is everything that it says it is and more!!!. I would recommend it and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you Laura for a wonderful week in your unit. It had everything we needed in it, just like being at home.

LOTS OF EXTRAS

  • 4 of 5
We had lots of fun at Ocean Sands. They had many extras (movies, books games, beach toys, cds) that we felt like we were a guest in their home. The view was wonderful, we loved to watch the sunsets from our balcony. We watched dolphins from the balcony everyday. Winn Dixie was across the street, and John's Pass was down the road ( we decided it was too far to walk, especially with our 4 year old). The place was very clean, and they were aware of the minor repairs needed and were already taking care of them. Very safe and secure because a key or a code is needed to get anywhere on the property. Our favorite place to eat was in St. Pete's called Snappers Seafood Grille (beware-refills on iced tea only). Laura was wonderful to work with. She was able to accomidate our special requests reguarding departure time. I would caution those with small children that there are shells displayed everywhere, and both the dinning table and coffee table are glass. We would recommend staying here and would stay again ourselves.

Truly a Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
I must say, the title to your condo says it all, "Home Away From Home". My family and I truly felt like we were home in your beautifully, well-maintained condo. The little "extras" made it so special - sand toys and boogie boards for the kids plus puzzles, games and movies for rainy days. The location, too, is ideal. We loved shopping in John's Pass Village and dining at the two local restaurants right across the street! We would recommend your condo to all our friends and family that are interested in renting in this area. Thank you so much.
