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

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

This was our first family trip to florida. The location was great....I loved walking to Johns pass and it was right on the beach....the bad.....the elevator is horrible. 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'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

so my husband and I decided to give Sandy Shores another chance, since we love Florida Gulf and the views, pool and beach. We were impressed this time......they painted the outside of the building, resurfaced the pool, redid the pool area, they made some very nice changes. WE got an oceanfront room (501), it was much cleaner this time than... More
