About the property

House, 3 bedrooms + fold out couch in living room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This three bedroom, two bath Physician's vacation home is available for rental. The three bedroom, two bath waterfront house is on Crystal Island in Madeira Beach, on a quiet cul de sac. It is all on one level (no stairs). From the moment you enter the house, you see the view of your pool, dock, and a saltwater cove connecting the intercoastal waterway to the Gulf of Mexico. Large living room, master bedroom, kitchen and dining room all look out onto the water. It is very light and spacious. The view is framed by coconut palms, hibiscus and mango trees providing shade in the afternoon, and beautiful sunsets! You see dolphins, great blue heron, and green parrots daily, and the occasional manatee! Everything is new and completely remodeled, not a typical rental home. The kitchen is stocked for the serious cook, with dinnerware for twelve hand-painted in Portugal, and dining room table seats eight. Lots of books (including cookbooks), DVD's, CD's, puzzles and games provided. Granite countertops in kitchen and baths. Laundry room with washer and dryer. Property is stocked with basic arrival items including detergent and paper products, coffee, and tea.

Master with king-size bed with Waverly linens, private bath with double sinks, huge walk-in shower, and large flat screen TV. Separate hall leads to the second bedroom with queen bed, third bedroom with twin beds, and second bathroom.

At your private pool just out the back door is a covered lanai with sofa and chairs, as well as teak dining table and chairs and a cypress swing, lounge chairs, and gas grill. Bikes, pool floats, and beach chairs fishing poles and umbrellas are in the garage, with plenty of parking space in the driveway.

The couple who owns the home live nearby in Tampa, so you can be confident that any problems or concerns will be quickly resolved. The house has had excellent care, and most renters have returned year after year. Please message me through VRBO or HomeAway with any questions. We look forward to having you as our guests.

About Randy

We bought this house when our son was younger and we enjoyed coming here from Tampa almost every weekend. Now that he is in college there are too many weekend activities to go to the beach house very often. It seemed a shame for such a nice house to sit empty so much of the time, so we decided to rent it. We heard about VRBO from friends, and we have been fortunate to have very nice couples as guests. Many have returned for several years, remarking that this is the nicest house they have rented after years of vacationing on the Gulf coast.

Randy purchased this house in 2004

Why Randy chose Madeira Beach

We live in Tampa and are both busy professionals. We wanted a place to go to on the weekends and to keep our boats that had easy access to open water as well as many amenities. But we didn't want to stay in a noisy touristy area Being close to John's Pass Village allowed us to take advantage of the shops and great restaurants. The house is moments from the Gulf of Mexico beach, but has a view of the intercoastal waterway to watch the boats go by. Amenities including professional sports, theatre, museums (including Dali), galleries (including Chihuly), and all the Florida amusement parks are within easy driving distance.

What makes this house unique

We really enjoy relaxing outside in the morning with a cup of coffee or at the end of the day watching the sunset from the pool. It is very private. At both times you are likely to see dolphins swimming and feeding. Hank the Great Blue Heron visits daily since our British guests starting feeding him! You can swim in the salt water, then rinse off in the pool. You can sit at the end of the dock for fishing or crabbing, and occasionally even see a manatee!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for making everything flow smoothly for our holiday here. We have really enjoyed our stay, but it seems to have flown by. We will be returning to heavy British rain, due to last for quite some days. I have also left a bag of clothes in the closed of the middle bedroom for Goodwill.....shhhhh don't tell Roy that I couldn't get everything in my case...our secret! Thank you once again, and please pass on our best wishes to Randy and Cathy, and thank them for renting their lovely home to us!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this gorgeous home for the last four winters and can not say enough about it. The home is just beautiful. The open views from everywhere in the house are spectacular! The pool area overlooking the Inter-Coastal is perfect for a very memorable and relaxing vacation. You are just a few steps or a short ride to many restaurants and area attractions. We recommend this property to everyone! Owners & Manager are great!
