Ocean Sands is located on 5.5 acres of beach front stretching over 700 feet along the Gulf of Mexico. Located at the intersection of Madeira Beach Causeway and Gulf Blvd., it is within easy access of all main thoroughfares and I-275.
Our parents purchased the model unit at Ocean Sands because it showed them a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico from the eight floor. You can see the water from the kitchen, living/dining room and master bedroom with ease. The kitchen window also offers a view of the fishing boats on the bay side. Beautiful landscaping, a heated pool and jacuzzi, a sun deck, recreation facilities such as shuffle board, and covered parking are meshed with the natural setting of the sun, sand and sea to make Ocean Sands one of the most popular condominiums on the Suncoast.

On December 1, 2023 we had a cancellation for March 2024. We are looking to rent the whole month or just March 2-30 if possible.

Registration Number: TD-15591

Unique Benefits

You will never get tired of looking out over the gulf no matter what time of day. Everyone loves their morning coffee or tea on the balcony but the most peaceful time may be night time, looking at the blinking lights on the lobster boats and buoys. Clear nights are great for star gazing

Why Kids Love It

Our children loved the pool and the beach and when they got older they enjoyed meeting other kids at the jacuzzi at night. They played basketball and tennis across the street in the park. Miniature golf was just up the boulevard and we could walk to several ice cream shops after dinner.

Area Information

#1 must see activity is a trip to Fort DeSoto Park, voted the number one family beach in the entire USA with swimming, walking trails, and of course, a fort. Other must see sites are the Dali Museum, Sunken Gardens, Museum of Fine Arts, Tampa Bay Auto Museum. There are plenty of sites for pier or boat fishing and there are a couple of fishing rods available at the condo to try your luck at surf casting.
Restaurants and a Winn Dixie are within a two minute walk, fast food and breakfast shops less than a hundred yards down the boulevard. CVS and a Medical Clinic a one minute walk away.

Attractions Within Walking Distance

Great morning coffee shops only a few 100 steps from the condo. There is pickle ball activity going on across the street at the park. Bring your own paddle or just borrow the four we have in the games closet and head over for games starting each day at 8 AM. It's a great way to get some exercise early in the day and you will meet plenty of people from the area. The miniature golf course , Public Library, and many local restaurants and grocery shops are all within easy walking distance. If you overdue it, there is a Medi-Clinic just up the street off Gulf Boulevard.

About the owner: My sisters and I inherited this condo from our parents, who were the original owners of Unit 806. Since we lived in New York and were 1200 miles away my parents decided to purchase the model unit in the building because it was so tastefully decorated and they were convinced that the best view in the tower was from the 8th floor. They were right, as we are high enough to not hear most traffic sounds yet enjoy a perfect view of the gulf from our west side windows. Each one of us would love to live in our condo full time but work, commitments, and grandchildren makes it impossible at this time. Ocean Sands units are very desirable in the marketplace right now. There is a high demand for gulf front condos with buildings that possess strong financial positions. The HOA and property taxes are expensive but we would rather rent to good people looking for a lovely winter vacation than sell a property that has been in our family for almost 44 years. Please enjoy your time in our condo and in Madeira Beach!

Why this property? Ocean Sands is built on five and half acres of land and utilizes 700 feet of sandy beach. It has recently been re-painted and had the elevators upgraded. In the last few years the pool and spa were also renovated. Madeira Beach and these condo towers have been spared from any significant damage during the last few hurricane seasons. Ocean Sands received high marks on it's recent structural evaluation by their county engineering department. The management team is always looking for ways to improve Ocean Sands for its residents and guests.

Serenity

Condo was extremely nice with many, many extras including towels, beach items, cooking utensils, seasonings etc. Most of all the condo was very clean and the owner responded quickly to any and all needs.The view was amazing and there are plenty of places to eat and shop within walking distance. Bed in MB was very comfortable and the very large patio oceanside was very enjoyable.

Charming condo with Gulf Bay view

We had a great time in this condo which is located in the building right on the Gulf of Mexico. The apartment is very charming, in very good condition , all the shops you need are within easy reach across the street. The owner of the apartment is a very nice person- giving you all needed informations without smallest issues. We would like to rent that cute place again in the future!

Beautiful and stunning condo

Me and my family have stayed in this condo multiple times and I can't have any complains. The unit is gorgeously well kept and spacious and is ideal for a family vacation. With the unit being on the 8th floor, the view of the ocean and sunsets never fail to take your breath away. The complex also has many desirable features such as a large swimming pool, a hot tub, and a barbeque area. The condo is walking distance to a number of grocery stores, bars, and restaurants. I highly recommend this condo to anyone interested in staying and I will certainly be returning in the future.

We went to MB in July 2007 for the first time. We absolutely fallen in love with this place. Been back here every year since, different times but mostly in December. The place is spacious, huge master suite, and balcony with breath taking views. Elevator goes straight to the beach, pool and hot tub, great especially in coolet winter evenings. Owners afe very accommodate and super friendly. Cannot wait until ger back there
