Madeira Beach Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed extended vacations in this condo for three years and plan to return again next year. That’s the ultimate recommendation!

We especially enjoy sitting on the big deck, with the expansive view of sunsets, dolphins, birds and people on the beach. We love the close proximity to grocery stores, restaurants and John’s Pass within walking distance and the trolley that takes us further up and down the beach. The condo has everything we need for being comfortable and enjoying our time. We feel at home here and relish every minute!

Bruce was really easy to work with on the rental.

Pool and hot tub were both clean - everyone was friendly there, too.

Loved it and would go back in a heartbeat.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect--grocery store and several restaurants close enough you can walk to, close to John's Pass and not that far from Clearwater. Condo was well furnished. There are spectacular views of the Gulf from the family room and the bedroom. If you're worried about safety, the building this condo is in is well secured. Owner very responsive!! We will definitely be back.

Very nice condo right on the beach with great views. This is a perfect

Place for couples to go plenty of room everything you need for cooking. Bruce is very quick in responding to any questions or calls. We had a great time there meet a lot of nice people staying in other units. We will definitely go back to ocean sands and stay in Bruce's condo again next year.

Wonderful view!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful condo with a perfect view of the beach. We loved sitting out on the extra large balcony to listen to the waves and watch dolphins. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything anyone could possible need. Also, the beach amenities supplied with the condo were phenomenal. The owner is very nice and checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our stay.
