Stunning views greet you in the morning and colorful sunsets relax you each evening. Dolphins play, parasailers fly by, sun bathers worship on the white, soft sand. For a short while, you can be part of paradise! Our home has a million dollar view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Located on the second floor, the surf, sand and water are very personal. It's like they ARE your own backyard.
While staying here you will enjoy a modified floor plan, (which is unique to the Kima building), that maximizes the views and makes the unit more spacious. The open kitchen layout transitions into the living room with a large breakfast bar that seats 5 people comfortably. Another four people can enjoy their meal at the adjacent dining table. The unit is perfect for preparing meals, while enjoying the fabulous views. Recently remodeled, it features a brand new 42' LCD flat screen TV, as well as newer furnishings and linens.
The blue and white color scheme is tranquil and comforting. When you return after a day in the sun, whether it was lying quietly beach side and enjoying a good book; deep-sea fishing; or, wind-surfing, when you walk into your apartment the relaxing color scheme and cool white tiles will welcome you home.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and private, en-suite full bath with shower. The master faces onto the beach with a wall of windows, maximizing the incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico and the pristine white beach below. Walk out from the master onto the spacious balcony to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails at sunset. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and uses the adjacent full bath, with tub. Both bedrooms have quality mattresses and 100% cotton sheets that are sumptuous and inviting.
Ideally located, Kima is only a ten to fifteen minute walk to John's Pass Village, where you will find a host of restaurants, shops and fun things to do and explore! Madeira Beach is a fairly straight 25 minute shot to Tampa Airport. Busch Gardens is about 45 minutes drive - perfect for a day trip. Fancy seeing Mickey Mouse? You are only 90 minutes drive to Disney; and yet, you can leave the still heat of Orlando in the evening to return home to the delightful Gulf breezes.

About marketa charouzova
My name is Marketa. My husband, Tony and I are from the Czech Republic, where Tony races stock cars on the European circuit. We purchased our beach home while living here so that our sons could attend schools in Florida. Though we now live in Prague full-time, I return to the sunshine as often as possible so that I can enjoy the beach; the fabulous golf courses; and, all of my American friends. While back in Prague, I travel extensively throughout Europe and the world purchasing for my business enterprises. (Thankfully, I manage to get in a little clothes and shoe shopping too!)
marketa charouzova purchased this Condo in 1996
Why marketa charouzova chose Saint Petersburg
We loved the energy that Madeira Beach has. It is not a sleepy beach town, with only 1 traffic light and no night life. Madeira Beach has vitality and so many things to do!
What makes this Condo unique
We love to walk the beach and venture out nightly to nearby restaurants and bars in John's Pass Village. We have a million-dollar view of the most incredible sunsets you can imagine. As a photographer, I have taken thousands of pictures from my balcony in an effort to capture the majesty of that brief moment - BUT nothing beats being there in person! I am an avid roller blader and enjoy using the Pinellas Trail, (which is only a 7 minute drive), for invigorating sessions on my roller blades! I love playing tennis and golf. There are so many fabulous golf courses nearby to chose from AND a waterfront tennis park is only 3 minutes away!

Becky and Eugene Evansville, IN
Just returned from a week in this fabulous condo. This condo is fantastic! Very spacious and accommodated our family of 4 easily. The balcony view is wonderful. Watched dolphins swimming in the ocean. A sea turtle nest was on the beach and clearly marked and protected. Hoped we would get to see the little ones hatch but no luck. This beach is so clean and not overly crowded. Spent time on the beach and at the condo pool. Pool is very clean and plenty of seats around the pool for everyone. This condo is well stocked and has more than you would ever need. Washer and dryer, everything you need for cooking, movies, surround sound, great view, comfortable furniture, and lots of space. Tastefully decorated and nicely furnished. Shopping and restaurants are all close by. Marketa and Vladamir are jewels to work with. Parking provided with condo rental which was very nice. Facility is very secure and safe. We would return to this condo in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, spacious, well taken care of condo that offers a fantastic beach, wonderful views, parking and all the amenities of home at a great price!
Perfect Beach Vacation!!
The condo was an absolute dream!!! It is even more lovely than the pictures. We loved the decoration style and all the blue (our favorite color). We also both really loved the shower by the kitchen, very spacious and loved the glass sliding door. Every room was just wonderful! Living room area was very comfortable and I loved the TV/surround sound setup. Perfect for watching movies after a long day in the sun!! I knew this place was perfect when my wife found her favorite author, Harlan Coben, on the bookshelf! It really made her happy! The view from the condo is breathtaking! We both really enjoyed watching the Dolphins pop up from time to time. Weather was perfect all week long and really enjoyed getting to explore John's Pass, Clearwater, St. Pete, and other nearby locations. Perfect vacation and we would both love to stay again next summer!!
Excellent Vacation Connection - Don from Indiana
My wife and I totally love this condominium. The amenities and provisions are everything advertised and more. Kima has a wonderful pool and beach-side patio with a private beach entrance. The location is very good, easy access from the mainland and lots of restaurants and attractions nearby. Marketa was really nice and easy to work with - thanks for letting us enjoy your condo. We will definitely contact you next time we are headed South.
Fantastic stay for two months - January and February of 2013!!
Carol from Ohio- Condo was as advertised. The building sits close to the ocean and I spent many hours on the spacious balcony soaking up total R&R (rest and relaxation). The condo is clean, well maintained and well equipped with everything you need for a carefree get-a-way. It is close to shopping, great restaurants and public transportation. I do not have a car there but I don't need one. The beach trolly stops outside the condo and I can go anywhere I want to for $1.00 fare. I can also walk to the shopping center and John's Pass for an afternoon of shopping. I am a bridge player and there are a number of places to find a great game of bridge and I have made some great friends here. I intend to be a repeat long term renter and have already made my reservations for Jan. and Feb. of 2014.
Died and gone to heaven! Hypnotising gulf views, exceptionally clean inside and out.
This is our second visit to the Gulf coast and quite simply, we won't stay anywhere else from now on. We have even decided to get married here in 2014 and hope that this condo will be the base for our wedding!
About 30 minutes drive from Tampa Airport, this condo is placed perfectly to visit the many different places along the Gulf Blvd. About 15 min drive to St Pete Beach, 5 min to Johns Pass, but you may want to walk to Johns Pass down the beach, which takes about 20-30 min, depending on how active you're feeling! And about 40 min drive to Clearwater.
Plenty of restaurants to visit in the nearby area, but also up and down the Blvd. For your food shopping there is a huge Publix about 5 minutes drive away and also a Winn Dixie. There are menus for the local restaurants in the kitchen drawers, along with maps and guides for the local areas, so you can't get stuck really. You either turn left or right out of the car park and keep driving until you get to where you need to be - really simple.
It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Marketa and Lada. So kind and helpful and there was nothing that we wanted for in the condo. It has literally been a home away from home, with everything that you could need in the kitchen, an abundance of towels for both the beach and the bathroom. All you need to bring is yourself and your swimsuit (I'm not joking!).
Any photos that you see here and the many additonal photos that Marketa can give you do not do this place justice. If you gasp at how beautiful the photos are, the view when you walk in the front door will amaze you. The dolphins playing in the gulf or even just turning up to show you a fin are a real show stopper!
The condo is exceptionally clean and everyday there was someone hosing down the patios downstairs and cleaning the pool or painting a wall in the covered garage. If you noticed that someone had walked sand into the lobby, it had been cleaned by the next time you were there. If you are visiting the Gulf Coast, you need to be here - it's that simple. Love, love it here!
PS go to Clearwater Aquarium to see Winter the Dolphin!
A repeat renter
I have stayed at this same location for eight years now and continue to come back; each year staying a little longer. The condo as well as the building itself is kept very clean and well maintained. The condo is very bright and open and has been recently upgraded with the additions of a new stainless steel fridge/freezer, a new washer/dryer and a new flat screen television in the master bedroom. The location is terrific, not only for beach access but for shopping and dining as well. John's Pass, a Florida land mark, is walking distance from the condo and offers great gift shopping, a variety of dining choices, deep sea fishing as well as a large selection of water sports. I have stayed in other facilities along this coast but have found none better. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone as a great place to stay.
PS: Go to Dockside Dave's across the street for the best Grouper Dinner on the beach and make sure you order their Onion Rings.
