About the property

Hotel, 4 units sleeps 2 to 20. 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths.

The Beach Flower.

A rare to find original beach retreat from the 1940's. Updated every year. We are considered an Endangered Species on Flordia'S West Coast. Since the last Boom the developers bought out most of the small intimate hotels and Mom and Pop spots to tear them down and build High Rises. We are located on the powdery sands of Madeira Beach. The place you want to go if you want to be one with the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Our Goal is to provide an Immaculate, reasonably priced, safe spot for you to enjoy with the whole family for a reunion or a sneak away with that special someone in your life.

A double balcony upstairs set up for dining or sunning. Large Patio down stairs with picnic tables, plenty of Beach Loungers, and a large Gas Grill.

This old Beach Home is now divided up into four gulf-front apartments. All units are beautifully decorated in each their own style and atmosphere. You can choose from 'Fisherman's Reef,' 'Jungle Oasis,' 'Shell Island,' and our pride, the 'Captain's Quarters' (The Owners Unit)

Each unit if fully equipped with everything that you will need. Not your typical hotel or condominium accommodations. Personal touch is the key here. We want you to feel at home.

The Beach Flower is also perfect for small weddings and family reunions.

We do welcome , well-behaved dogs with prior approval. There is a $75 pet fee for dogs up to 25 pounds. Speak to us about larger dogs. The pet fee may be more, and there may be specific requirements. When you decide to bring your dog to the beach please keep in mind that they are not allowed on the beach.

Relax by the beach on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Stroll along the beach, wade through the surf, watch the birds and dolphins, and see the beautiful sunsets that make Florida so famous.

Nothing between You and the Water But Sand!!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Two stays in 2006 and 2011

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Shell Island. It is not fancy but feels like a privately owned condo right on the gulf. Only four units, beautiful view and practically have your own private beach which is right out the door. We have booked again for 2012. Plan to keep reservation for years to come. Management is excellent. Almost hate to write this review because we do not want anyone else to compete with booking this lovely property. We would strongly recommend this property.

Car: recommended

The Beach Flower is located on the powdery sands of Madeira Beach. Within a mile you will find numerous restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores, and shops of all kinds. We are 9 blocks from the Famous John's Pass which is loaded with great places to eat, fun shops, and the largest Marina on the West Coast of Florida. There you will find every kind of water sport and charter boat that you can think of. From Private Charters to the Large Party Boat Charter. Try the Midnight Shark Charter! That's a fun one. They also offer Dolphin Cruises, Shell Cruises, Para-sailing, Boat rental, Jet Ski rental and much more.

There is a Trolley that stops in front of the Beach Flower which will take you all the way down to St. Pete or up to Clearwater Beach. You can buy a day or week pass and get on and off as often as you wish to eat, shop and site see. We are one and a half hours from Disney Land and even closer to Lego Land. Lowery Park in Tampa has a Zoo ranked in the top 10 in the world. About 15 miles away in Clearwater you will find the Aquarium that the Famous Dolphin, Winter, calls home. Watch the movie and then go see the Star. You will never run out of things to do in this area. Most of my guest come for the Beach! And we certainly have that right at your finger tips!
