Holiday Vacation

We had a wonderful time. Although this was not a condo with a direct view of the gulf, we had a partial view. The intercoastal view was nice. The condo was clean, well equipped with kitchen essentials and the beds were comfortable. John and Mary are always very welcoming and helpful.

A Perfect Vacation

Our condo #403 was quiet and very clean! It was very affordably priced. We saw dolphins daily. The beach was clean. My teens enjoyed the pool. Gorgeous sunsets. Mary was great and very helpful.

I was in a last minute bind on finding a different place to stay for my family vacation, our original condo booking had damage done to it and the owners had to cancel our reservation. Luckily I ran across this gem. Mary was a delight to work with and was able to accomodate my family with jjst days notice. The owners of condo 403 were amazing as well. The condo was spacious, very clean and had almost everything you would need for your entire weeks stay to make you feel at home. We cooked many meals at the condo and on the grills downstairs, we didnt want to leave to much due to covid. We enjoyed playing cornhole while we grilled and the kids swam in the pool which was always clean and warm. Never busy or crowded. They also had beach chairs and loungers available for the beach, so there is no need to have to pack any to bring with you. However there were several broken and torn chairs, there were still plenty others to choose from. They also have a chest with beach toys and pool toys available to use as well if you have small children. The beach is not crowded at all near the condo, 20 to 30ft away from the next person at any given moment. The building is very secure, you must have key fob to be able to enter the main doors of the building. The condo complex is iconveniently located to many shops and restaurants within walking distance and Johns Pass is within walking distance as well. The condo we stayed in wasnt ocean front but had a really nice view from the large balcony. Only complaints I would really have, And theyre not necessarily complaints, more suggestions, is the water pressure is very very poor for showers, and the master bedroom bed was uncomfortable, and it could use a little updating but it didnt effect our comfortability or our pleasure of our stay. Overall great place and I will 100% return again.

More than We Could Imagine!

We were very pleased to stay at the Collwood Condos (403). We have been to Madeira several times and this was our first time to stay here. The location was perfect for our family. Only 1/2 mile from John's Pass but far enough away from the major public access. Mary & John made you feel so welcome. Having them on site was a plus for me. We have stayed in other places where the owner/manager were several miles away. It was good to know if anything was needed, Mary & John were there ready to help. Our condo was set up perfectly for our needs. We have a family of four. Bedrooms and bathrooms were large enough and up to date. Flat screen TVs in every room with good cable. The only issue we had was with the wi-fi. They do have two separate access points, but even with that, it was slow. However, given there are app. 15 units on each access point and possibly 4-5 smart devices per unit, it is no wonder. The good thing was cell phone service was perfect. Kitchen had all utensils provided. There was even spices, oil, etc if you wish to cook. Plenty of cups, plates, bowls & silverware. Stackable washer and dryer was very convenient. (detergent and dish soap was even provided). Beach access was amazing. The provided beach chairs and lounging chairs were a great bonus. Pool was not huge, but large enough. VERY clean and shaded from the direct sun. If you have never stayed in Madiera Beach, you are missing out! Calm, clear water and you are only 30 minutes from TPA and even closer to PIE. We would highly recommend Collwood Condo 403! We will definitely be staying again!

Vacation dream

Our stay at Collwood was everything we expected and more. It gets better every year that we return. 403 was not as updated as some of the other condos that we have rented, but was still quite comfortable. A little sprucing and it could easily be one of our favorites.
