Amazing beachfront views from this corner unit Penthouse Condo.
Located in a small, secure, and quiet building in the heart of Madeira Beach, this top floor penthouse condo features a wrap-around west facing balcony for unobstructed views of the beaches and the magnificent Gulf of Mexico sunsets.
The building is located on a beautiful section of sugary white sand and the warm, calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You're just a few minutes walk to John's Pass Village, with all the restaurants, shops, and activities you'll need. The pool is private and uncrowded, and offers a fantastic place to relax, read a book, or get some sun.
The entire condo has recently been completely renovated with new tile flooring and paint, a completely new kitchen with Granite counter tops, as well as updated and upgrades throughout the whole unit. There is no better place to stay and enjoy the beauty of the beach.
The master bedroom features a king size bed, and large private bathroom. The second bedroom also includes a king size bed. The third bedroom has two twin size beds for the kids. The living room includes plenty of seating, a large breakfast bar, cable TV with large flat screen TV, and has new electrically operated reclining leather sofas. The kitchen is fully equipped with every appliance you'll need, plenty of pots, pans, dining ware, and cooking utensils for all your entertaining needs. Included in the condo are a full size washer and dryer, new beach chairs, a few books, even a few beach toys for the kids.
Stay in one of the most fantastic locations in the area, in one of the most updated and well appointed properties available.
Trip was very nice and relaxing. Unit 503 is on top floor of building with beautiful 180 degree views of beach and sunset. Building was nice and kept clean. Well taken care of. Balcony was nice size so 4 people could sit at table to dine or watch sunset.
Inside of condo is nice, newly updated. Very clean.
One concern was that for a building that contained 15 units there are only 5 lounge chairs by the pool. Second week we decided to rent the lounge chairs on the beach instead of trying to get ones by the pool.
Would definitely stay here again.
Restaurants we enjoyed were Bubba Gumps, Sweet Sage, Friendly Tavern, Seascapes, the Waffle House, and Paris Café for baked goods.
We spent a couple weeks with friends at this condo, nice views from deck, sunsets were great, dolphins in ocean just about every day. The pool was clean and nice place to relax and quiet. The condo was nice tile floors easy to keep clean, kitchen updated, needs newer pots and pans, new coffee pot would be nice as well, couple light bulbs burnt out and none available. electric recliners one side worked the other did not. master bath was nice plenty of closets, towels provided. Had a good time place could use some more updating but no major issues.
We spent 2 weeks at this condo in March 2016. I would probably rate is a 4.5 because there is always room for improvement. The location is excellent with John's Pass close enough to walk but far enough from the crowds. The condo was nice and updated, however there are a few things that could be improved. The kitchen utensils, pot & pans, glasses, etc. were insufficient and older. They all needed to be cleaned when we arrived. Minor details like the original windows did allow plenty of outside noise in. Beds were comfortable enough and there were enough towels, etc. The building was clean and the pool was clean and warm. There maybe should be a few more lounge chairs around the pool. Overall, we would return.
We stayed for a week after the 4th, so arriving on the 4th was crazy busy in the area! After that, the beach in front of the condo was quiet with very few people, so we had a wonderful, peaceful week. Very close to John's Pass, but far enough away to enjoy quiet. Plenty of towels, cookware, etc. and we very much appreciated the beach chairs we could take to the beach! We would stay here again. The only complaint is that beds were pretty hard, but the place was clean and had BEAUTIFUL views!
My family, and I rented this condo for a week in April 2015 for our annual vacation. Upon entry we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the condo. We did notice the reviews about the hot water, and were a bit worried (I like my showers very hot) but it was a non issue for us. Overall the condo fit our needs perfectly, good location, clean pool, and recently updated. Also John's Pass is only about a mile or so. We look forward to booking this condo next year if available.
Rented this condo for 12 days in Nov of 2014 for 3 couples ~ PLENTY OF SPACE. We needed to contact maintenance the first day as the garbage disposal was old and broken and water had pooled under the sink. They were great about coming in and fixing it. I am certain that some of my other problems could have been addressed had I call them back but I just did not want to sit there and wait for them.
The view from this penthouse corner unit is amazing and the sunsets are magnificent. Dolphin watching is a plus throughout the day from the balcony or the beach - we even saw a school of 12 one day! The building seemed fairly quiet and the pool and patio area were clean. The condo has had some renovations, such as tile flooring throughout; kitchen has been remodeled and the appliances updated. The beach towels supplied were a nice plus (I believe there were six of them). The living room furniture was fantastic! Two leather sofa's that recline (one sofa with remote and one with a manual lever). Being able to relax in comfort while watching the dolphins play was a nice plus for this vacation. Maintenance issues: No water pressure in the 2nd bathroom. The hot and cold water going to the washer are turned around; so when dispensing are completely backward. The large hot water heater was turned down fairly low, only allowing for one shower at a time. I understand not keeping it turned up when the unit is empty, but it should be turned back up prior to guest arrival. Not enough towels were provided in each of the two bathrooms!!!. The bed sheets were threadbare and need to be replaced, not even having enough elastic to stay on the beds. The towel rack behind the toilet in the master bath was hanging off the wall on one side and the bar fell off when I removed the towel, we simply used the other towel rack from that point on. A large knife was no where to be found, this kitchen was not sufficiently equipped for a person who is used to preparing their own food while on vacation. We added several small items to the kitchen as we felt that it could have been better equipped. Cleaning issues: There was visible dust accumulation under a dresser in the master bedroom that was seen from the doorway view. Entrance mats outside of the door could be added to alleviate sand coming into the unit. THE SHOWER DOORS IN THE MASTER NEED TO BE REMOVED. Thought of bringing family back, but no good place to give small kids a bath. Dresser in 2nd BR needed.
