Location, Location, Location, that's what I've always heard about realestate and that is one of the best things about this unit. Located on the beach, just above the private pool, this complex is the last building on the coast north of John's Pass. We purchased this unit because of the 3 large windows down the southern side of the building giving us views of all the activities on the pass. You can watch the people, boats, and traffic moving in and out of the pass from the bedroom, the dining room, living room, or the balcany.
This unit is totally brand new. We found the unit with the location and stripped it bare before rebuilding it from the new cork under tile floor all the way to the new sprinker heads. If you want the new car smell when you walk in the door, you wont get it at most of these older Gulf Coast condos with a great location. You wont be dissappointed when you walk in the door of this up scale unit.
We spared no cost as we purchased this unit for our private family use only and have only just recently decided to offer it uut as a rental unit. We plan to be picky and don't plan to list it in the general pool of condos as most are.
New flooring, furniture, appliances, 42' wall hung plasma TV's, washer-dryer in the unit, sterio, memory foam mattresses, and new hurricane proof windows and doors that keep it cool and quite inside with great views of the outside.

I'm from Somerset, Ky and Linda is from Parkersbug, WV. We moved to Tampa in 1985 from Columbus, OH and have two children age 17 and 11. I run a international logistics company and Linda manages several commercial properties we own. Our children have gotten so busy with school and activities that we have not been able to use the condo as much as we were when we first purchased it. So we are now offering it out for the first time as a rental unit to people we don't know yet, but hope to find 4 or 5 families to share this treasure with on a annual basis. We also love to travel and would be interested in trading a great place annually for this great place.
Linda Mills purchased this condo in 2007
Maderia Beach is slightly less popular than Clearwater Beach and St Pete Beach, but it is smack dab in the middle of the two. John's Pass Village was redone last year and is better than ever. The new Bubba Gumps and Hooters add to the great places to eat and support the atmosphere of the old sleepy fishing village. There are lots of weekly festivals and events hosted at the pass each month.
Things we love to do while at our beach condo:
1. Sit on the balcony in the morning and watch all the boats leaving the pass headed out for the day of fishing or fun in the sun.
2. Grab the Sun Coast Trolly in the morning and tour the gulf coast all day exploring the shops, resturants, beaches, and bars from Clearwater to st Pete.
3. Rent a small boat for a few hours and head up the intercoastal waterway to the Salt Rock Grill for a drink and appetizer before the sun goes down.
4. Fix some hot tea or a nice glass of wine and sit out on the balcony and watch one of the best sunsets you'll ever see.
5. My wife loves to go across to John's Pass and have the conch fritters at at The Hut or a slice of Pizza from Del Rosa's. Of course then she spends the rest of the day shopping.
6. We all love the Dolphin Boat - you really do see dolphins and it's a nice leisure ride.
7. Be brave and go parasailing or rent a couple jet-skis. Your on vacation - have fun and make it memorable.
We have stayed at the Mills Condo at Beach Place, Madeira Beach for 3 years now and have already asked Linda to book us for February next year. This condo is renovated and modern with a beach theme that is perfect. The unit has all the necessities plus with tv's in each room, comfortable beds, a big kitchen with modern appliances and more! With the three bedrooms and two bathrooms there is plenty of room for a large family.
The condo looks right out at the beach for spectacular sunsets and because it is an end unit you have a great view of John's Pass and sunrise! John's Pass Village is right behind, across the street and has the marina, restaurants and plenty of shopping.
Linda thinks of everything and makes it easy to make this your best vacation yet!
My wife and I have found our favorite hot holiday spot and hope to be able to go back for many years to come!
We walked in the door and never wanted to leave. This condo has everything for everyone. There were six of us ranging in age from 3 to 62 and everyone enjoyed the condo without a single complaint. As many of the previous reviews stated, the condo is extremely clean, updated, comfortable and has everything you would need. Don't bother bringing a cooler they have 4 to choose from. Need a hair dryer? No worries, 2 of those as well. Not to mention iron, ironing board, beach chairs, beach towels, wake boards and so many toys. In the words of my seven year old "this is AWESOME!" Perfect location, perfect decor...perfect all around. We already miss waking up to the beautiful views of Johns pass and the ocean. We will be back. Thank you, Linda. You are a pleasure!
We rented this condo for my daughter's spring break. The location was awesome. She could walk across the street to John' pass and back to the condo for beach fun. It is more of a family area, which is what we wanted.
I have been renting in this area for 30 years and this was the best condo so far. The inside is fabulous, clean, and stocked with fun stuff to do. Some reviews for this complex state the elevator is slow, but it is no slower than any other complex I have stayed at.
The owner is professional and quick to respond. I would rent from her again without hesitation.
We have stayed at Linda's condo for two winter holidays and we will be back next year again. The condo is an upscale 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom with so many extras. The unit is on the John's Pass end of the building so you have the morning sun coming in the dining and living room windows and the balcony to watch the sunsets . The bedrooms are big with very comfortable beds and TV's in all. Linda is so helpful & makes all interactions go smoothly and professionally. The listing is accurate and the photos do not show how great this condo actually is. The unit is exceptionally clean and well maintained. I have recommended this condo to my friends and relatives as great deal for a super vacation. John's Pass Village right across the street has a number of restaurants to choose from if you don't want to drive and there are many restaurants less than 5 to 10 minutes away by car. Publix Grocery store is 5 min away across the bridge for all your food needs. The beach, the sunsets are awesome and the pool is there for those days that you just want to lay around and read a book. We will keep going back every year as we have found our favorite vacation spot.
We stayed here for the week after Christmas and we really thought it was a great place to stay! Extremely clean, updated, comfortable and well stocked throughout! GORGEOUS views of both the intercoastal highway with it's draw bridge, and the Gulf of Mexico! 3rd floor unit right on the corner made the stairway super convenient when we didn't want to wait for the elevator and it was exceptionally quiet in regards to people being above and below and beside us. I would recommend this place to everyone! We had 7 people there - my family of 4, with a 20 year old and a 15 year old, plus mother-in-law at 72 and Brother and Sister in law in their early 40's and we all enjoyed it.
We stayed for a week in this property after two hectic weeks in Orlando and had a great time.
The property was very clean and well maintained. To be honest the photo's do not do it justice. It was furnished to a very high standard and was also very well stocked with so many extra's that we didn't expect,beach and pool toys, which our 4 year old daughter loved, fishing rods, beach chairs etc. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the activities on the beach,the boats and the stunning sunsets.
The owner, Linda, was great to deal with. She always answered our many questions prior to booking promptly and gave us plenty of ideas for things to do while in the area.
John's Pass had plenty of shops and restaurants/ bars all within easy walking distance. Our favourite was Baba Gumps. We didn't venture too far as we mainly relaxed for the week, but we did use the Suncoast beach trolley which was great value and an easy way to travel up the coast.
If you are thinking of spending some time in the Clearwater / St Pete's area we would highly recommend this property. It may be a bit more expensive than some of the other properties, but it is well worth it.
The best thing about this unit is that you can save money by not renting a car! Located directly across the street from John's Pass Village. You simply walk out the complex door, along the water and up to the boardwalk for shopping, dining, water sports, and anything you may need. You never need to get in your car. If you do want to ride then try the Suncoast Trolly system that drops off and picks up right out your front door. You can tour the Pinellas Beach Coast, Shop, explore, get your groceries, go to concerts, sporting events, sight seeing and more. But you can also just relax and enjoy the beautiful Gulf beach. Our condo is equipped with everything you need to enjoy the beach and a relaxing nights sleep. We are a premium corner unit with full open views of the Gulf beach and the inter-costal waterway. You won't be disappointed!!
