About Tom Chapman

Our family after many trips to Florida exploring the north, south, east and west fell in love with this beautiful place where the dolphins play and the beach life is so relaxing. There's much to do within walking distance shops, restaurants, the beach.

Tom Chapman purchased this house in 2003

Why Tom Chapman chose Madeira Beach

Great views, private dock with dolphins in the back yard and occasionally a manatee. Fishing from the dock at night. Walking down to the infamous boardwalk for some live music and some eats. Stoll over the bridge to Treasure Island stop by Gators to catch the game or dancing. Walking down to the gulf on the white sandy beach's for sunset's. Sitting in the covered Lanai watching the wild life and the amazing views, the parades of boats going by heading out into the gulf of Mexico.

What makes this house unique

The private dock with dolphins in the back yard and occasionally a manatee. Every time we're there we have seen dolphins come by to say hi. Great views from the bed in the master and the covered Lanai. Onsite manager very knowledgeable and helpful.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Dolphin's Retreat. The place was exactly as pictured. Captain John was very helpful. A great place for a quiet family vacation with our 2 teens. They enjoyed exploring John's Pass and Orlando was still close enough for a day trip. The dolphins made an occasional appearance and the birds were surprisingly fun to watch. A memorable vacation, I would definitely recommend.

Awesome!

What a great time!!! Everything was just as advertised...no surprises. The place was comfortable and spacious, Captain John was great to talk to (very interesting guy!); and the Dolphin were non-stop. The view every morning, evening and night was no less than spectacular. I would very much recommend Dolphin Watch. It's literally right in John's Pass...so if you like being close to the action, you're actually be part of the action!

Great vacation place

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our visit to Johns Pass. The house was very spacious, clean, and had everything you could possibly want to make your stay enjoyable. Capt. John, the property manager was especially helpful and friendly. The lanai was especially nice; just great to sit and relax.

Such a nice place!

We loved the view, the spacious apartment, the cleanliness of the property and the property manager. It was a perfect location. It has a modern kitchen with everything you need. The view to the bay is spectacular and restful. We were greeted upon arrival. We will no doubt return. This is one of the best rental experiences we have had.

This house is grest. We did a spur of the moment vacation and not being able to get on the beach which we always do , found Dolphin watch. We've always stayed on the beach, but now after staying here on the inland waterway we've changed our opinion on which is better. Its an easy walk to the beach and still have the privacy of a single home. So much more to see ( loved the dolphins ) Our own private yard. Had lunch outside almost every day. John and Lynn were very helpful. Next time John we're going out on your boat. Chats on the pier with Todd at night were great. Hate to rave about this place I don't want too many people to know about it and not be able to rent it again.
