Lovely Waterfront Condo for Couples or Singles


Property Details

Updated: Nov 20, 2014
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 2 Sleeps

This choice condominium townhouse at the popular Madeira Beach Yacht Club is located in a prime waterfront position, with probably the best location and views in the whole complex. Sit and relax on your own private balcony, overlooking water and boats. it's a generous 1069 square-foot townhouse condo on two levels (2nd & 3rd floors). Outside the front door is a private sunny balcony to sit overlooking intracoastal water. You can park your car outside and the swimming pool, gym and office are just a few steps away.

The Yacht Club is right on Boca Ciega Bay - there's water everywhere! If you are looking for a quiet place this will suit, but if required, there are also many activities and night life to be found close by.

See some guest comments below and click the reviews button to see more. We rent to adult couples or singles only - no children. It is our winter home in Florida, so of a much higher standard than most rentals. Please check the availability of your dates on the calendar below before making an enquiry.

Madeira Beach Yacht Club Condos recently won a Community of Excellence award for Sustainable Practices.

The house sits within an attractive, well maintained, gated condominium with on-site management. The Yacht Club is not a resort, but a private, residential condominium which allows short term rentals. Less than 45 minutes drive from Tampa Airport and just 20 minutes from St. Pete-Clearwater airport. Sit and watch boats, pelicans, parrots, ospreys and occasionally dolphins swim by. Neighbours tell us 'you have the best seats in the house'!

Offering extremely clean and very comfortable accommodation, the house is nicely decorated and is generously furnished. It's very well equipped and is light and bright, with everything you need for a fantastic vacation. Carpet and tile throughout, with some full mirrored walls, open plan downstairs with living room, dining room, kitchen and a separate toilet/washroom/laundry. The kitchen has new GE appliances including a large ice and water fridge-freezer. The comfortable living room has two large, soft leather sofas and a flat screen LCD TV & DVD player. Upstairs is a huge bedroom with a cathedral ceiling, a king-size bed and separate sitting area & flat screen TV. There is a large closet/dressing room, wash room and a bathroom with a large walk-in shower.

You get unobstructed water views from EVERY window and and sunset skies from the living room and bedroom! This really is a lovely place to stay and provides a high standard of accommodation. All you need is your toothbrush!

The sugar white sand and shell beach is just a 5 minute walk and you can see the sea of the Gulf of Mexico from the bedroom windows. The house is located just steps away from the largest of the two heated swimming pools, also the pool tables and gym. There is a dock opposite for fishing or to just sit by the water reading.

Madeira Beach is a safe and relaxing small town, situated on a Gulf of Mexico barrier island. There are so many local amenities within walking distance you don't even need a car to enjoy a vacation here. The Beach Trolley Bus runs up and down the coast at regular intervals, from Clearwater to St.Pete's and is a very cheap and convenient ride.

This house is our winter escape, so generally of a much higher standard than a regular vacation rental. Most other units here have dark and gloomy interiors (due to very few windows) which need lighting switched on all day. Most overlook the car parks but our waterfront townhouse is very bright and airy. It has large vinyl windows all around, tinted and double glazed making the place quiet and comfortable. Our water view and location is in our opinion the best in the whole complex. It is well worth any extra cost over and above other cheaper units - you will not be disappointed. An ideal vacation home for non-smoking adults who appreciate quality.

My parents are having an absolutely wonderful time staying in your condo. They could not be any happier. Each time they phone home, they continue to talk about how beautiful your condo unit is and how much fun they are having. They can't believe how quickly the time is going by for them and would like to book again for next year.

D S, Middleboro, Ma

We have been visiting Florida for about 13 years and in that time, have stayed in many condos. This is one of the very best.......

Clean condo with great view-from Indiana

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I vacation in Madeira beach often with our 3 boys. This time we alone were able to get away. We love the area up along the coast from Clearwater to St. Pete. We were satisfied with the condo. Great views and everything was within walking distance. I think the condo is great for couples or singles. We have stayed in many condos and I will say this was the cleanest! Even though some things were dated, it didn't matter. What matters to us was how clean it was!! Owners are easy to work with. Thanks Chris.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at your condo. Everything was perfect and exactly as described. We only needed to buy groceries ( which was only a block away) to make our stay complete! Everything else we could want from kitchen utensils to beach chairs was provided! It was a short 5 minute walk to the beach where you could rent chairs and umbrellas if you wanted to. The complex was very nice also with many friendly people! We would definitely rent this condo again! Chris is very easy to work with and keeps the condo in pristine condition making it a great home away from home!

Home Away From Home

You have a beautiful, nicely decorated, well-equipped condo. We loved everything about its location: so close to the beach, a grocery store and a liquor store, and lots of good places to eat. Although we did rent a car, we could have gotten along quite nicely without it! We had a fabulous vacation- our first in Florida- and hope to return again next year to do some camping in our trailer.

We loved reading the reviews from other guests, it certainly helped us to select places to eat. We had great meals at Origianl Pizza (inexpensive and genuine Italian pizzeria), Screwy Louie's, Gator's and the Pirate's Pub and Grub- great seafood at the last 3 places.

The best shopping was at the Ellenton Outlet Mall- lots of great deals!

We had a lot of fun looking at the sand sculptures in Clearwater at the Sugar Sand Festival and visiting Winter the dolphin at the Clearwater Aquarium. We also loved Busch Gardens, the animals and plants are amazing, as was the ice show "Iceploration".

Our sunset dolphin cruise out of John's Pass was fun, and the sunset was beautiful, but we were disappointed to see only one dolphin.

I would like to caution your other guests when booking a fishing charter. My husband and a group of guys had booked through a company that turned out to be a hoax. They had better luck going directly to the Marina and booking directly with a charter captain. They caught lots of fish, which the crew cleaned for them, and we had bbq'ed fish for supper that night!

All in all, it was a wonderful, restful vacation. Thank you so much for renting your condo to us!

Great Vacatiom Experience

  • 5 of 5
This unit is exactly as described. Clean, comfortable, well furnished with everything you will need.We look forward to returning for years to come as this unit feels like home. Great views from the balcony of the Marina. LOCATION---LOCATION!! The best unit in Madeira Beach Yacht Club. We fly down and do not rent a car so location is important to us. We can walk to the grocery store, area restaurants and can hop on the beach trolley to go just about anywhere. The owners Chris & Wendy ae wonderful people to work with.

Great Condo with a great location on Madeira Beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd visit to this great condo. Everything you require is at your fingertips. A real home from home and very well appointed.

Sitting on the balcony to watch the dolphins swim by is a real treat. The beautiful beach is a short 5 minute walk away or you can just laze by one of the two swimming pools.

The supermarket is across the road when you need to top up the fridge and the local library is even closer if you run out of reading material.

Johns Pass is a short drive away and you are within 10 minutes of some of the finest retaurants around. (Try Salt Rock Grill)

All in all a great holiday, in a well loved condo in a great location.

We will be back.

There is no doubt in our minds that this is absolutely the best view in the Madeira Beach yacht club. We were there in the middle of July and although it was a week of ongoing rainshowers and thunderstorms, none of which prevented us from enjoying the pool and the beach since they occurred late afternoon or during the night. The weather even gave us plenty of rainbows -- sometimes we saw two at the same time. A friendly heron visited the dock often where fish constantly jumped out of the water and lots of birds flew in and about. We spent a lot of time on the shady deck reading and watching the goings-on in the marina. Although there were a lot of people staying in the yacht club, it was still quiet and private - just the way we like it.
The condo had everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed the walk-in shower vs. a bathtub - so much easier to get in and out of at our age. We enjoyed area restaurants for lunch and dinner when we weren’t eating in. Our recommended choices are Crabby Bills where we sat on the breezy deck on a hot sunny afternoon for fish tacos and crabcakes with some fantastic fries, The Conch Grill and Bar in Reddington Beach for great fish and chips and ribs and the Los Mexicanos in Indian Rocks for just plain good mexican style food. Having the Win-Dixie within walking distance with the Dollar Store and a CVS next door us a place to get anything we needed. The bonus was the Amish Creamery across the way.
We’ve spent a lot of time in the St. Petersburg area over the years and it’s the best place we have rented and would gladly recommend it to couples looking for a quiet and restful vacation with access to lots of attractions within a short drive and the beach – anytime of the year. For baseball fans, it is close to a number of spring training parks and Tropicana Field is just 20 minutes away when the Rays are playing during the major league season. It's everything that was advertised and more.
