About Gail Holden

We moved permanently to Madeira Beach from London in 2011, and run a small business in Clearwater. We love the area. There is so much to do, but it is also a lovely place to relax. We feel very fortunate to live here and are happy to share what we know with family, friends and visitors.

Gail Holden purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Gail Holden chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We chose this particular house because of its location. It is convenient for the airports, for the beaches, theme parks, shopping, the Pinellas Trail for cycling, golf courses, fishing or boating, whatever you want to to. The views of the intracoastal are so beautiful at any time of day or night. We are also happy that within a short walking distance we have plenty of bars and restaurants as well as shops and attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

We decided to buy this house when we saw a dolphin swim by when we were visiting. Since then we've seen many dolphins there as well as manatee and a lot of wonderful birdlife from Blue Herons to Humming Birds. We also like being able to walk across the road to the beach for a walk or a swim.

Extremely Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at this property which is a testament to how much we like the property and location. Once again, we enjoyed it tremendously and the hospitality and attentiveness of our hosts (property owners).

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! I was so excited to try out this rental and it did not disappoint... not one bit! And yes, we saw dolphins - twice! The place was very clean, nicely appointed, and the outside space was gorgeous. We enjoyed meeting Gail, and we were sorry that we didn't meet Roger. The John's Pass boardwalk is a stroll away, and there is a coffee shop nearby too. If we are back in the Madiera Beach area again, we will absolutely try to stay here again. Thank you Gail!

Restful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The rental was immaculate with a well stocked kitchen and bath. The outside area on the waterway was a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the birds and even a dolphin or two. It is also well located within easy walking distance of both Johns Pass and the beach. The owners, who live in the other side of this duplex, are friendly and helpful. My only recommendation would be add a window covering for the slider in order to provide privacy when the owners are entertaining in the shared outdoor space, especially at night.

Florida Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were totally pleased with our stay in Madeira Beach. The property was extremely clean and well appointed - everything you needed to make your holiday a happy one was there. The location of the unit is extraordinary! The view from the second floor balcony and the backyard patio of the waterway, boats, etc. was exceptional. My wife and I passed many hours during our week's stay there just relaxing and taking it all in.

The amazing thing is that you can leave the quiet, relaxing atmosphere of the unit and within minutes find all the activities of John's Pass or go to the beach on the Gulf shore itself.

Our hosts (Gail and Roger) were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. My wife and I have already signed up for another stay with them in 2016 because we liked it so much. Without a doubt, this was the best visit we had to Florida in a long time.

Another great visit

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful month at this lovely apartment. This was our second visit and won't be our last!

There is everything you will need and want. We did have visits from the dolphins and beautiful birds. There was a blue heron that came right up on the patio for a photo shoot!

Stanley and Victor were our hosts! Just kidding - Gail and Roger are so kind and friendly. They make sure that everything is ok and help with suggestions on places to visit and places to eat. (Stanley & Victor are their 2 cats that are absolutely beautiful and a delight.)

Hopefully we will be back to avoid our Western NY winter again.

Thank you Gail & Roger!!

Heaven is a place on earth

  • 5 of 5

That´s what you can call this home. We expected something nice when we booked- but this property is awesome. We are a little selfish and one year has only 52 weeks, so it might be not availible if we return next year........

Just go there and meet Gail and Roger, the nicest people we´ve ever met.

And don´t tell anyone else about Stanley and Victor.

Thank your all for making this the most beautiful vacations we ever had.

See you next year!!!!

Car: recommended

The apartment is approximately a 45 minute drive from Tampa International Airport and about half an hour from St Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport. It is roughly two hours from Orlando International Airport.

It is located in Pinellas County, which has 35 miles of white sandy beaches, one of which is right across the road, 250 parks and 50 golf courses. The nearest big supermarket is just over a mile away and you can walk, bicycle, drive, or take the bus or trolley. Whilst a car is recommended, it is not essential. There is plenty of public transport to take you up and down the beaches and to the local shops and shopping malls. All the shops, bars, restaurants and activities of John's Pass are just a short walk away. There are also plenty of activities there such as parasailing, deep sea fishing, dolphin watching, boat, kayak and paddle board rental etc.
