The small, family oriented community of Madeira Beach is casual and friendly, offering a sunny welcome to all who vacation by its wide, white beach. Watersports, fishing, golfing, beach walking, and quiet relaxing are favorite pastimes on this popular but never crowded area. Las Brisas, beach front condo is overlooking the Gulf of Mexico on the west and Boca Ciega Bay a few blocks to the east, Madeira Beach provides an ideal setting for all seasons vacation fun and relaxation.
We have been using Home Away for vacation rentals for about 10 years. My sister found this wonderful place when she came here to celebrate her 50th birthday with her girlfriends in September of 2014. This condo on Madeira Beach is top of the line & this is the only unit we have re-visited. The décor is simple but beautiful and comfy. It is relaxing. Sitting on the terrace listening to the gulf & drinking our morning coffee was a perfect start to every day.
EVERYTHING you need is in this unit and it is a large unit. We had family from Sarasota visit us for the day. All totaled, we were a group of 18 ranging in age from 3 to 70. We used the BBQ for lunch & for dinner we had pasta. We sat at the dining table, the breakfast bar and at the table on the terrace. The terrace is a wrap-around terrace and pretty big. There was enough room for all of us to eat, laugh, share memories & have fun. There is a new, very large washer & dryer in the unit. Beds & bedding all very comfortable, kitchen well-equipped with plates, bowls, glasses, cups, utensils, cooking gadgets, etc. It's all there. Most important of all, this is one of the cleanest units we have rented.
The owners are wonderful people whose only goal is to make everyone happy and enjoy their home. They have succeeded with this unit and EXCEEDED our expectations.
Would love to keep this gem of a place to ourselves, but that would not be fair to everyone else.
Do not hesitate to book this unit - you will not be disappointed.
Thank you again, Lydia & Anthony for sharing your Florida vacation home with the rest of us - my family truly appreciates it!
I rented the condo to celebrate my 50th birthday with childhood friends. The rental agent always answered my questions promptly, and booking was easy. We had two parking spots, which was great, because I have friends and family who came to visit.
The condo was absolutely perfect for us. Very spacious, and very nicely decorated, and clean. The beds were comfortable, but the pillows were too thick and firm for me. The bedding was nice, and there were A LOT of good quality towels. The kitchen was really nice, and fully equipped for whatever we wanted to cook. The couches were very comfortable, and the furniture was in great condition.
We had to contact the rental agent for some bulbs that went out, and a wifi problem, and the owner got back to me almost immediately and the problems were resolved quickly.
I have been renting vacation properties for over ten years, and this one is probably the best I have ever stayed at. All my friends said they would love to stay here again.
The washer and dryer were Huge! And we appreciated the convenience of having them in the unit.
The photos DO NOT do it justice. The owner was a pleasure to talk with, and apologized for light bulbs going out, which can happen, and was no big deal.
Everything you might need is within walking distance. We had absolutely no desire to leave the area, except when we wanted to go dancing for my birthday, and my friend rented a limo and took us to Jimmy B's, which was down on Treasure Island. I have been trying to find the best blackened grouper sandwich for ten years, and Dave's Dockside is my favorite, which happened to be right across the street!
The beach was beautiful, and not crowded at all. We picked a perfect time of year to visit. The water was comfortable, but the sun was hot, so I recommend renting the beach umbrellas, which were adjusted by the umbrella people several times a day, to make sure our beach chairs were shaded.
We had to buy some floats for the gulf, which we left for our neighbors. It would be nice if the condo had a storage area, so these things could be passed on for future guests. Our neighbors came over, because we offered some leftover food and our beach gear, and they said our condo was nicer than theirs.
It was the best vacation of my life because of dear friends, and this beautiful condo.
My family and I stayed at the condo for a vacation over mother's day. We absolutely loved it! The condo is beautifully decorated, very clean, quiet and comfortable, and well equipped to suit our needs during our stay. We loved being able to go for long walks on the beach everyday down to John's Pass. Watching the sunsets and the dolphins swim from the balcony was breath-taking and having a corner unit above the pool allowed me to watch my kids swim from the condo. We could not have had a better time and will definitely be returning for more vacations here!
The weekend that we arrived was spent tolerating 2 adjacent units throwing beer down from the second and fifth balconies to the pool where intoxicated men were swimming. The paramedics were eventually called due to the over-indulgence of these men. If you are in your 30's or 40's and like to party this is the place to be. We, however, were not in this camp and found it irritating to witness. (Maybe if we were in a unit not so close to the pool it would have been better.) We have been told by the condo manager that there was a property manager that we should have called. We were unaware of this at the time and simply had to tolerate the craziness.
This unit is well supplied, beautifully decorated and suited our physical needs. It does not however have ANY beach gear (towels, toys, chairs, etc.). We were charged $30 for a statue that was broken during our stay. We accepted the financial responsibility of the loss.
Thankfully we met some dear folks on the beach that made the trip enjoyable. Maybe if we had been there a different week our experience would have been better regarding the overall atmosphere of the property.
Madeira Beach is located on the west central gulf coast of Florida directly on the beach, 30 miles from Tampa and 100 miles from Orlando.
