Rented Unit 111 from August 17 to August 23. The Unit is a two bedroom, two bath apartment that is pet friendly and faces Johns Pass. The unit was well kept as was the building. The elevator is very slow but we were on the first floor so we decided to use the stairs except the day of arrival and... More

We rented this condo for 3 nights in July. When we left, we made sure the place was clean. We turned the keys into the office, made sure the fridge was empty, took out all the trash and swept the beach sand off the tile. I checked everything myself several times before we walked out the door. The place was... More

The owners of this unit have their own cleaner for them. They clean the unit every time. The cleaner had us go up to the room and showed us the mass amounts of dog hair and stained blanket. The guests told me they didn't notice that when I called them which is hard to believe. This is a nicely updated... More

We have rented from here numerous times, and this trip the staff was arrogant, extremely rude and unfriendly. They "made up" bogus rules and tried to Inforce them with arm bands for the pool. The elevator took about 20 minutes to arrive no matter what floor you were on. The beds in room 303 had us in tears they were... More

The guest that wrote this review stated that she stayed with us in the past but we have not found her in previous reservations. When she talked to me she said she was wanting to have a small gathering for her daughters birthday with just 6 girls and immediate family. I believed her and took the reservation. To our surprise...

Only 1 elevator and VERY SLOW. When we got there someone was parked in our reserved parking spot...the people managing the place knew who it was and never did anything....we had to... More

My son and I stayed in Condo 402, the views are unmatched, the location across from John's pass were our main motivation. We were late to arrive but were provided with access code to insure we could access the condo. The pictures do not do this condo justice, it is very large, the kitchen is wonderful! Everything you could possibly... More

Great location, crappy condo. We were in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit forth of July week. It sleeps 6. Unit was big enough but there were nats in the kitchen. Our refrigerator had one shelf. They provide no bedding for the pull out sofa but they neglect to tell you that when you book. We had 4 towels for... More

We are not sure who this guest but can tell you that a 2 bedroom condo is equipped with towels for 6 people and pull-out linens are provided when asked for at the office. We also provide kitchen towels and cleaning cloths as well as paper products and dish tabs for a couple of days. True we are a condo... More

We've rented many condos on our visits to Madeira Beach and this one is by no means bad, but there are others I like better. There is only one elevator for this building and it is painfully slow. Then, since there's only the one elevator everyone tries to cram in and with the heat and humidity, some of them aren't... More

My wife and I just stayed at Sandy Shores in Madeira Beach from April 13 - 17, 2015. I have read several reviews dating back a couple years. As with most reviews they are mixed. Obviously it is impossible to make everyone happy all the time. Everybody has their own agenda. I'm not the easiest or the hardest person to... More

Stayed in a Gulf front one bedroom in February 2015 and found everything about Sandy Shores to be perfect. The front desk ladies Linda and Dana were very helpful with any questions to be answered. Infact we have already booked for 2 weeks for next January 2016 and are anticipating that vacation. Our small dog also enjoyed the stay while... More

Well I chose Sandy Shores for it's location on the beach. And the beach is lovely. Now, on to the rest. The condo was comfortable and nicely appointed. I have already addressed my minor concerns directly to the condo owners. Sandy Shores on the other hand has some issues that I'm sure they are very aware of, extremely slow elevator... More
