We'll Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

For the second year, Ocean Sands 404 has been our holiday 'home away from home'. And we are looking forward to returning again next year. Why?

The Gulf view is amazing from everywhere in the unit. The deck has plenty of room to eat meals or lounge and comfortable chairs to enjoy the sun and the breeze. The beds are 'just right' - not too hard and not too soft. Lots of creature comforts are available: all the kitchen equipment you need, beach gear, furniture with plenty of storage space so you can stow your belongings, great adjustable shower head to wash off the salt. Keyless entries to the lobby and unit, so you don't have to keep track of keys. The pool and and hot tub were not crowded and the locals we ran into there and around the property were very friendly.

The beach! Long, flat, and usually very level for easy walking and shell collecting. Dolphins and birds provide lots of entertainment. It's not crowded with people, but everyone you meet is relaxed and happy.

One great thing about this location is the location! So close to anything you need! Good pubs and restaurants, drugstore, groceries, and Johns Pass a beach walk away for great people watching and browsing. The trolley outside the door can take you north or south to explore without having to drive.

Finally, the owners of this condo have been very accommodating in answering questions and providing everything we needed to have a wonderful experience. We will be back for year three!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This was such a nice place! The views were amazing! We saw dolphins from the deck every day. And the owner thought of everything! We truly only needed to bring personal items. There were beach chairs, games, lots of beach toys, etc. The condo itself had more seating than some 3 bedroom places we've stayed at. The beds were very comfortable and the view of the gulf from both the living room and bedroom couldn't be beat! The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need as well. All in all a great place to stay on Madeira beach and we will definitely be back!

spectacular views with dolphins and coffee on the balcony.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the condo are right on but the view is more than you would ever expect. FIVE STAR View.

Every morning coffee and dolphin watching from the balcony. The condo is clean with plenty of supplies in the kitchen, plus the beds and furniture are very comfortable. Bruce also provides beach chairs and toys for kids. Lounge chairs and umbrella are available at reasonable price on the beach. The Ocean Sands building is very secure and clean with a larger than most condo pool. Area is close to all types of restaurants and easy to navigate around. We look forward to our next visit. Call Bruce for a good time on the beach.

Wonderful Oceanfront view!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing, relaxing vacation at your property in Madeira Beach. The location was ideal- oceanfront, in walking distance to restaurants, Long Pier, Publix and 7-11 right across the street! Although the majority of our trip was rainy, your condo was so comfortable and clean, that we had no problem lounging and relaxing on the balcony. We found ourselves at Johns Pass often for our shopping and eating excursions. Thank you for labeling everything and making it so easy to find what we needed! We'll definitely be back :)

Very Nice room. Comfortable and everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The Room was very comfortable. The furnishing and appliances were all very nice and clean. We cook all our meals, so having everything we needed was excellent. The view from the room was great. We liked that we had access from both the living area and the bedroom. The keyless entry was also good because we never had to worry about where the key was. We spent a lot of time on the beach, and the stretch of beach in front of the building did not have very much traffic on it. To the North and to the South it was very busy. Having a quiet part of the beach was very nice. If we ever come back this way we will definitely come back here. Thank you.

A well-equipped condo with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a condo with a direct view of the gulf look no more! They really thought of everything and we brought a lot of things with us that we realized we didn't really need. Bruce is very easy to communicate with and gives very detailed instructions. Ocean Sands is a wonderful complex. So wonderful that I'm trying to convince my husband to buy in there now :). The location is ideal! There is a Winn Dixie a couple of minutes away, Johns Pass is right down the road and there are restaurants that you can walk right across the street to. Our favorite restaurant was the Brown Boxer. They have a 50/50 bacon burger on their menu that is out of this world! The parking is covered, the pool area is nice and best of all the other owners in this complex are super friendly. We had 2 children (11 & 8) with us and although they are well behaved there are some places that just don't appreciate the younger ones being around. We experienced quite the opposite! The residents enjoyed our children and were helping them & giving them tips when they tried their hands at fishing. We fished right off the beach and caught about 30 fish (mostly whiting). The condo and the grounds are clean and well maintained. The wifi was easy to figure out and had a good signal. I really can't think of much to complain about. If I could make one improvement it would be to add a cable box. It would be nice to have the option of recording something when we're out or be able to find something on demand that I know the kids will like, things like that. I understand that would be an extra cost to the owner though. That was the only thing from home that we missed really and all we had to do was look outside at the beautiful view and it was completely forgotten anyway :).
