About Rodger Gerstung

My wife and I have owned this property since 2005. We have renovated, landscaped and decorated the house to our liking and also through the suggestions of our long term guests.

Madeira Beach is our favorite Gulf Beach town. It still retains a local, fishing community feel even while the towns to the north and south grow evermore touristy.

We live in Orlando and make the weekend commute ot the bungalow on every Friday and then return to the ''world'' on Monday mornings around 5am. This gives us complete weekends to enjoy all that the Gulf beaches have to offer.

We are avid boaters and generally spend all day cruising the intracoastal waterway or visiting the many friends along the waterway that we have met over the years.

We will eventually move to the bungalow but have plans to spend to winters on a Trawler boat cruising the islands somewhere in the Caribbean. This will allow our long term winter/spring guests to still enjoy the use of the bungalow for their seasonal vacation in the south.

Why Rodger Gerstung chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The bungalow is the perfect size for us. It allows us to ''lock it up'' and go. It is fairly easy to maintain and manage. While the house inside is very cozy and comfortable, most of the time our guests spend outdoors by the pool or fishing on the dock. There is lots to do within walking distance and plenty of shopping, eating and watering holes available.

Those that stay in Mad Beach understand the allure of the local flavor and this is why we chose to buy here. We recently sold a beachfront condo on St. Pete Beach. It was a gorgeous location and the sunset views were incredible. As the years went along we found ourselves spending more time in the Mad Beach area than in the St Pete Beach area. It was just less ''touristy'' and we enjoy the local vibe.

So here we are enjoying life in the sun, sand and surf.

We hope your time in Mad Beach is just as fulfilling!

Rodger & Suzy

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Mad Beach Bungalow in Jan and Feb/2013. We found the house to be exactly as described. The kitchen was very well equipped and the house was clean. Great decor added a personality to the house and we felt so at home. Small issues were attended to promptly. Loved the pool and the hot tub and the outdoor area was great for entertaining. Also enjoyed the proximity of nearby hair salons, Winn-Dixie, Publix and the very short walk to the beach. Great neighbours. Thank you so much...see you in Jan, 2014!

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at Mad Beach Bungalow and had a marvelous time. The accommodations were just perfect, the weather was perfect and the locations was perfect. We enjoyed the neighborhood Blue Heron, named Socrates, who visited daily waiting for us to feed him the fresh catch of the day, which we did. There were other egret visitors too. The pool was just the right size and the hot tub felt good too. The owners have perfected their decorating and comfort items. The beach was a short walk down the street. I packed way too many things I didn't need to. Just loved this place.... love, love, love.
