Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo. We had a wonderful vacation. Your condo was perfect for our stay with the extra care you provided not going unnoticed. We were a day late in arriving due to an ice storm in Cape Breton, but when we did arrive, that was quickly forgotten. We treated your home as we would our own, and hopefully everything will be to your satisfaction when we leave.

Another wonderful stay in this lovely apartment.

If you’re thinking of booking the apartment you won’t be disappointed, all the reviews below are 100% correct.

This is the second time we have stayed in the apartment and we would not dream of staying anywhere else in Madeira beach. The owners are a pleasure to work with and really make you feel welcome; I can honestly say it feel like a second home to me.

The last review says it’s better than a 5 star hotel and I certainly agree!

Thank you for sharing your home Jack, we hope to return soon.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a corner unit and on the top floor. Water everywhere you look. Two large door walls facing the ocean. Sleep feeling you're at the beach! Everything updated.. Has everything you could possibly want. No clutter. Detailed information on how to use everything. Better than a 5 star hotel.

Very Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to the Uk from this lovely property after a really relaxing break. The owner was a pleasure to work with both before and during our stay. The accommodation was bright and spotless in a lovely quiet and friendly complex. There was everything you would need for a comfortable stay with plenty of beach towels and chairs and a really comfy bed. Like the last review we used the second shower as it suited us and for us Brits a kettle is a must which you do not often find in American accommodation so thanks Jack for that. We had a great visit and hope to return.

So relaxing and a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this apartment, it had all of the amenities we wanted including a kettle for me as I am a tea drinker. The view from the balcony was stunning and late in the evening we would watch the sun go down. The apartment block is quite, but the permanent residents very friendly. The main bedroom was very comfortable, although we choose to use the shower in the second bathroom as we prefer a cubicle instead of stepping into the bath. The apartment is well located with shops and bars within walking distance send a good bus service to St Johns Pass, but a car is necessary for longer trips and the airport. We would highly recommend this apartment and we hope to return ourselves.
