“Beautiful beach view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

highly recommend this condo 302. Clean and had laminate flooring so felt cleaner than carpet. Also, flatscreens in all rooms. Beautiful view of the ocean and not right of elevator so even more quiet. Would definitely stay again.

My family and I just returned from a week long stay and we all agree that we'd go back but keep in mind that not all units are the same. Between us we had three units: I stayed in unit 304 while other members of my family stayed in unit 604 and unit 602. I won't go in to detail about those units but we had no problems with our unit while the others had troubles with theirs. I will say this though, when there was a problem in those other units the building manager, John, was quick to assist.

The building itself is perfectly located. You can easily walk to many restaurants and stores, it's right on a bus route, and it's just off of an intersection that quickly leads to big box retailers, a mall, and major roads that can get you quickly to activities in Tampa, FL. From the windows in your unit you will have an excellent view of the water and you will definitely see dolphins. The beach was quiet and the building has a community beach/pool toy chest - you may also find some beach chairs or other equipment in your unit. The pool was well cared for. It doesn't get a lot of sun but the water is heated so it's actually a nice place to go when you want to get out of the sun. Each unit is designated a parking spot and there were two elevators that worked well. The elevator lobby also has lots of pamphlets and papers for local activities and restaurants. The bottom floor of the building is actually a deck with grills and deck furniture that overlook the beach/water.

We checked out the building's website - which is great; I haven't seen any other hotel/condo provide the amount of pictures and videos that they did - and carefully studied each of the featured units. We determined that unit 4 on each floor was the only unit on each floor that had a full wall of windows overlooking the water in both the living room and the master bedroom. Of the available unit 4's on each floor we thought unit 304 was the best because of how it was decorated and the kitchen was open to the living space (many of the units have hanging cabinets blocking your view out of the window from the kitchen). We were pleased that when we arrived and compared to the other units that we saw that 304 was indeed the best. The other members of our family in the other units agreed that if they were to return they'd request unit 304.

Basically, unit 304 was equipped with everything we could possibly need to feel at home. The kitchen was in great condition (and even had many supplies), the beds and living room furniture were very comfortable, and the unit was very clean and modern. The view from the room was exceptional! You could even sit on the toilet in the master bathroom and see out across the bedroom to the ocean. It was especially nice that (some of) the windows could be opened. There was plenty of space for everyone and plenty of storage space as well.

The only downside we could think of about this place was that the units themselves don't have a balcony.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else next time we're in the area. John and Jack should be proud of the work that they have done here to make this place feel like such a special find.

Room Tip: Unit 304 was perfect. There's a Walmart just a five minute drive away (cheap taxi ride). The D...

Very clean very family friendly great staff. What set this place apart from the other places we've stayed at in Madeira was the enclosed Dinning area downstairs next to the beach equiped with 4 new grills. The view for sunsets from the condo was unbeatable ! This is the only place my family and I will be staying from now on.

This vacation was exactly what we needed, relaxing! We stayed in 607. The condo had an amazing view outside the living room area. We even saw dolphins from our room one day! The grounds were clean. We were either in the pool or on the beach every day. You're not far from John's Pass and are surrounded by restaurants. We're definitely coming back!!!

Room Tip: Check out the youtube videos posted on their website. We stayed in a corner room. The living room ha...

What a wonderful place to spend a vacation. We stayed in No. 607 and it has everything you could want, even a computer. We vacationed there 12 months ago for 4 weeks and returned again this year for 3 weeks. The apartment we stayed in has fantastic views across the sea and there seemed to be even more dolphins this year than last. We even saw a Manta Ray.

Jack the Condo Manager and John the onsite Manager are there for all your needs, they were there for us if there were any problems, of which we had very few, or just for a chat, they are really great guys. You could always find John working away round the pool area or bbq area. He never seemed to stop working.

By the way Jack, we did get to Derby Lane again and once again we won, not as much as last year though, it was only $20 this year. Maybe we will take you next year and show you how to place your bet (always remember the curly tails). ha ha

A car is not really necessary as there are plenty of attractions close by, that is if you wish to walk in the heat and Winn Dixie supermarket is not far away either. John's Pass is very close by too with lots of attractions and restaurants, there is also a bus that passes by outside the Condos very regularly, I think it is the Gulf Boulevard bus, it goes all the way to St Pete's and the other way to Clearwater.;

For anybody who wishes to see just how great this place is just take a look at all the reviews and I hope you enjoy your vacation as much as we enjoy ours.

Room Tip: I think every room is a good room but if you look on the website you will find videos of the inside...

After 3 surgeries in 6 months we desperately needed a vacation. My husband looked at many condos before settling on Madeira Vista. We are absolutely so pleased with the entire experience. When we booked we found Jack to be accommodating and very professional. When we arrived we were met by John,the on site manager. John was so friendly and kind. He welcomed us warmly. We immediately had an informative tour. He took us to our suite and then made sure we knew where everything we might need was located. John has been highly visible each day. He takes pride in this place and it certainly shows. So conscientious.
Although we like to move about on vacation we would definitely return here. A special thank you to Jack and John. You both add a special atmosphere to this lovely beach location.

Room Tip: We were in 607. However, everyone we spoke with on the beach was as happy as we were with Madeira Vi...

Thanks for the great review! (Especially the nice comments about John, which came at a good time.)

I enjoyed our conversations out on the beach, and it is personally rewarding when a new guest feels like they have "discovered" Madeira VIsta.

We will see you next year, right? (Hint, hint...)

We spent our 6th August @ Madeira Vista this year. The views will take your breathe away; the waves inviting; watching the dolphins swim by - very relaxing. This year a dolphin ventured in closer to shore, it was a lovely sight! Watched the Sea Turtle Patrol remove the last of the babies from a pit and help them to water - very educational for the children that came over to watch. John keeps the pool and bbq's clean; if there is a problem John is there to help; and Jack, well, Jack is great! He manages all the bookings, the Condo Board, and all guests, with a smile!

Madeira Vista is the best place if you want a beach vacation, want to bbq, swim in a pool or venture out on to Gulf Blvd to the many shops, restaurants, John's Pass, etc.

Have a question? Have a problem? Need your boarding passes printed? Jack and John are there to help you out!

I honestly cannot say enough about this gem....plan to go back for year 7!

Room Tip: If you don't mind your bedroom overlooking the street (far back) then ask for a corner unit. The...
