Canadian/ Indiana Family Christmas Vacation
"What a fabulous condo to stay at! My parents drove from Indiana and my boyfriend and myself flew from Fort Erie, Ontario and we had the pleasure of staying at Sandi and Raymond's condo. We have stayed at many different condos in the Maderia Beach area each year and this 2009/2010 Christmas stay was the best. The location is fantastic and the yacht club is a great place to stay if you enjoy a fantastic view of the bay and enjoy fishing, pool, sauna and hot tub/swim pool. What more could you want! You are a very short walk from the beach, along with a short walk to the store and library. We took advantage of all the amenities while vacationing at this condo. And the most pleasurable thing was the safe gated condo that was "white glove' clean! You I think the thing that made us feel so at home was, Sandi and Raymond's kindness that they showed. That wanted us to love the condo- their home. That was no problem- you immediately fall in love with the condo and you feel you have a special bond with the owners from the very first time you email to inquire about the rental. We have never experienced that special feeling from the condo owner-usually they just worry about getting their money and they tell you to contact the office if there is a problem. The Peacock's didn't do that-they gave all their contact telephone numbers and told you to just call them if any problems came about. My family and I were welcomed with a condo/ rental gift upon our arrival with a sweet note from the Peacock's that you knew came from the bottom of their hearts that we enjoy our stay in their home! Our family went on two lunch/dinner boat cruises while in Florida and the distance from the condo to travel to board the boats was great , not to mention the scenic view to Clearwater (less than 20 minutes away) and all the shopping and choices of restaurants that you see along the way! You are very close to two huge flea markets. One is outdoor and the other one is right next door and is an indoor market. There are lots of thrift stores and antique stores and malls to wander around in too. We also took advantage of the pizza restaurant that is within walking distance of the condo along with the miniature golf entertainment just around the corner of the pizza place. We also took the trolley instead of driving, which is very cheap and convenient to do from this condo. Anyone can do it! We would recommend this condo to anyone-SUPER NICE and just such SUPER NICE owners.
