Great Madiera Beachfront Condo- rate as 4.5 out of 5.0

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a very nice complex with a high owner occupancy, making it more peaceful than most. The condo's deck has table and chairs, providing a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the views, even at mealtime. It has a great heated pool, hot tub, covered parking, and secured by keyed gates and doors. The owners are very generous with free internet, plush towels, nice kitchen wares, etc., and beach towels, chairs, etc. The complex and the individual owner show great pride and a high level of maintenance of this condo and the facilities. The beach is fantastic and not very crowded immediately in front of the condo . The only negative that precluded 5 stars rather than what we would grade 4.5, is the street noise experience in the second bedroom. While in the living room and master bedroom the sound of the waves drown out most street noise, the second bedroom might require a white noise machine or earplugs for a peaceful night sleep.

Lovely Condo situated overlooking the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Ocean Sands. The Condo is well equipped and comfortable it has everything you need. We loved watching the glorious sunsets and dining out at local restaurants. My wife and I walked miles on the beach and saw Dolphins and Manatees. An excellent base for shopping too. We would certainly recommend to our friends and family. Thank you Jewell and Bob for an excellent holiday.

Excellent condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 2 weeks vacation in this fantastic condo of Jewell and Bob. All descriptions and pictures speaks for it self! The view is amazing, the surroundings of the condo is lovely, the area is relaxed and have everything you need (good restaurants, grocery store in walking distance, shops etc.) Everything in and outside the condo is spotlessly clean. The condo is well equipped. Everything you can think of is there. Tons of towels, beach stuff, cooler, washing machine, dryer etc. We can highly recommend this condo. Thanks so much to Jewell and Bob for rental of this lovely condo. We hope to be back one day!

Vacation Spot of Excellence

  • 5 of 5

We knew where we were going, our favourite vacation spot! What we did not expect was the friendly welcome of Jewell Coleman a person we related to immediately. For many years we have rented at Ocean Sands and are most impressed with the security, cleanliness and acceptance by residents. Many a paragraph could be written about this condo which lacks absolutely nothing from kitchen utensils, marvellous appliances to bedroom linens, bathroom towels (first rate quality) to beach chairs, etc.

How can you not like sitting on the spacious balcony for meals and watch for dolphins or just relax reading a book. Our favourite time was early in the morning sharing devotions, plainly enjoying nature passing by.

Least favourite? Having to go home albeit hoping to come back. Thank you for your making your condo our home away from home!

A BEAUTIFUL SPOTLESS CONDO ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from a fabulous two weeks vacation in Jewell and Bob's condo in Ocean Sands. The condo is very cheerful looking, brightly decorated, spotlessly clean, located in a well cared for building, and right on the beach, with a 30 ft. balcony. The mattresses and all the furniture are of very high quality and very comfortable. Ocean Sands is a great place with a beautiful swimming pool and tiki hut with bbq, is well maintained, and the people we encountered while coming and going were all very friendly. We felt like we were part of something special.

We enjoyed the balcony so much and spent countless hours sitting there listening to the sound of the waves, watching the dolphins swim by and all the beach activity and relaxing. We also enjoyed eating out on the balcony many times.

From my initial contact with Jewell back in January, any questions I had were promptly answered and in the friendliest manner...an amazing lady to deal with!

We are looking forward to returning again soon. We highly recommend this condo to other guests. You'll be thrilled with your decision to rent from Jewell and Bob, just as we were.

First visit to Madeira Beach

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a condo on Madeira Beach you need not look any further. You will truly feel like you are in your own vacation home. The owners have provided every thing to make your stay extremely pleasant. The condo is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfortable, plenty of towels, beach chairs and toys available, great internet connection, kitchen is fully equipped. I highly recommend dinner on the lanai, the sunsets will take your breath away. The lanai is located directly in front of the ocean. Five of the fourteen days we were there dolphins came to visit us. I have never seen dolphins so close to the shore. They were a highlight of our visit. I think you get my message, you will not be disappointed in this condo.
