Overview

Florida Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy a Gulf vacation in a private beach cottage. Gulf Gardens is located directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. In less than a one minute walk from your doorstep you will be enjoying the sun on the white powdery sands of quaint Madeira Beach. Back at the cottage, you can swim in one of the area’s largest and cleanest pools surrounded by lush tropical gardens, enjoy an open-air meal on the poolside patio, or watch the sunset from your private front lawn. WIFI is offered so you can stay connected while you are away from home.

Our spotless cottage comes equipped with a fully-stocked kitchen - everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal. Clean linens will be provided and there is a shared grill on the complex where you can grill your catch of the day! There is a cable TV, VCR, & DVD player in the unit for your entertainment. The onsite property managers will ensure you feel like family during your stay and will answer any questions you may have during your vacation.

One of the nicest features of this unit is the unmistakable attention to cleanliness and details that only a discriminating owner can provide. And you don’t have to worry about long elevator waits…your car is right at your doorstep for your convenience! One stay and you will already be looking forward to your next vacation here! We should know…we rented here before and enjoyed our time at Gulf Gardens so much that we bought our own unit to escape to!

Located in the heart of the Clearwater/Saint Pete beaches, our cottage offers a convenient home base for touring Central Florida. You’ll be 30 minutes away from Tampa International Airport, Busch Gardens, Ybor City, and only 90 minutes away from Orlando’s family attractions. More local to your rental, historic John’s Pass is only 1 mile away. Stroll down to John’s Pass for many dining and shopping options, and grab a homemade ice cream on your way back at the famous Candy Kitchen!

About The Owner

Thanks for checking out our vacation property! We are a young family from Burlington, Ontario. We live a very active lifestyle and love to vacation in tropical climates. We love to cook, and friends and family are a big part of our life...and the three always seem to go together!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We vacationed in Madeira Beach and fell in love with the area. We have gone to all-inclusive resorts and have done adventure vacations as well...nothing felt quite as relaxing as our vacation in Madeira Beach. Living in Ontario, our winters are cold and long...we both knew that someday we would own a property to escape to in Florida. As soon as we spent time in the area, we knew Madeira Beach was where we wanted to be. It's so peaceful, quaint, friendly, and close to so much in the area. Being so close to the beach, we are able to bring our morning coffee along for our beach walks. You can also walk to John's Pass and our favourite spot...Candy Kitchen!

What makes this condo unique

What we liked about our property when we saw it is that it is one of the only units to have its own front yard. If you have kids, they will be able to play safely on the lawn, which is also set away from the road. Beyond the lawn is your parking spot, and beyond that is the road. If you don't have kids, you can just enjoy the privacy that the front lawn provides away from the rest of the complex. We look forward to creating many beach memories there with our daughter...and hope that other renters are able to create wonderful memories there too.

The appt is small but very clean and quet. The only one bad thing is the dumpster in next to it. The bed in small room is very comfortable and the sofa is roomy and soft. Will rent it for sure next time

Clean unit, fantastic location, your dream getaway will start here!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent five nights in this lovely unit last week, and it was everything we thought it would be and more! It was very clean, and they keep it in really good shape. I like how they provide you with beach towels and a couple beach chairs for lounging. I like how you get full cable TV and WIFI in the unit, should you need a little down time or if the weather does not cooperate. The best part is that the beach is literally a short walk across the street! There is a full kitchen with an oven, fridge, and microwave, and has all the utensils you should need if you wish to cook your own meals. We also met the property manager, and he was very kind and helpful. There are lots of restaurants and things to do in Madeira Beach, we never got bored. The only thing we regret is that we didn't spend a couple more nights here!

Always Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Another beautiful month! "Thank you" to the owners of our "Little Piece of Heaven" for the perfect vacation! It was easy to walk to so many of our favorite restaurants and shopping at John's Pass. The beach is right across the street and easy to get to. If you don't want to walk to your destination you can catch a trolley. The complex is well cared for and the pool is clean, warm and enjoyable! We've made such wonderful, caring friends and look forward to seeing them again next year. The cottage had everything we needed to make our stay perfect! It's comfy, cozy and clean. Thank you to the property managers for being so accommodating, friendly and easily approachable! Thank you to the owners for everything you do to make our stay special! We would like to spend additional time at our cottage; owners please contact my email!

So glad this cottage was available for our stay as it was perfect in every way. It was so convenient to the beach, numerous restaurants and shopping. We fell in love with Madeira Beach and can't wait to plan another trip.
