Why Kids Love It
The Heated Pool, Multiple Ice cream shop across the street as well as Convienience Store , Lots of games, beach toys, washrooms by the pool and steps from the ocean . The Candy Kitchen ( super cool unique candy and ice cream store )within 2 blocks walking distance. Bike, Ski Doo etc.. Rentals near by. Clearwater Aquarium is 30 minute or less drive . Mini Golf 5 minute drive . Thrift stores, shops and farmers market within 2 blocks . So many restaurants to choose from within walking distance .
Madeira Beach is a sweet little Unpretentious somewhat quiet but colourful Kitchy beach town that is close to everything you need .It features the quaintly small tourist area of Johns pass-which is a 20 min.walk from Arena De madeira. It Has a touch of a 70's authentic vibe perhaps due to its predominence of residential , low rise condos and homes all along the beach ,as well as ma and pa vendors as opposed to mostly chains and hi-rise hotels . Miami this aint , and thats why we choose The Gulf Coast and specifically Madeira Beach. Actually its also Not much comparable to Clearwater which is only 20 -30 minutes away . We think the The Commercial Hotel Hustle and Bustle of Clearwater has its appeal , but prefer the peaceful relatively low traffic ( incomparison ) residential charms of each unique Private Apartment and Condo all along the beach. There is nothing quite like "Living like a Local " !
Attractions Within Walking Distance
John's Pass within 20 mins walking and there are too many shops and restaurants to mention them all such as local ones like Docside Daves , Lisa's seafood or Mario's Italian , but some other more recognizable names are Bubba Gumps, Hooters, ..

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Canadian who is Mad about florida, the sun, the beach and fell in love with this quieter smaller little community that is a little like going back in a time machine in the 70's..
Why this property? LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION when looking for PROXIMITY & VIEWS to the Ocean from entire Condo & being able to accommodate larger groups and families who like to be together ! Nothing much compared to the well maintained Uniquely Intimate mature Turqoiuse building called Arena de Madeira with only 15 -3 bedroom 2 bath units and a nice heated pool facing the Majestic Gulf of Mexico Ocean. The open wrap around balcony of the corner unit was the cherry on top and proved to be irresistable!
Not to mention all the basics are within walking distance ( Convenience store across the street, Groceries , Pharmacy, Restaurants , Post Office , Unique venders all within a 6-12 minute walk . John's Pass is a 20-25 minute walk !
What's Not to Love !

This vacation was one of the most peaceful vacations I’ve ever taken! The condo had lots of room and you could see the beach from every room! The owners had beach supplies (Tent, umbrella, chairs and toys) in front of the parking spot that had anything you would need on the beach. This was a fantastic bonus! The ONLY thing that could have been better was the air conditioning. It got a little warm in the evening in the condo. With a veiw from every room, you have to expect the sun shining in all day will warm things up. I plan to return! We loved it!

Beautiful Beachfront Condo
Walking into this condo gives you the feel that you are coming home. Tastefully decorated and spacious, the 3 bedrooms provide very comfortable beds. Each room has plenty of storage, and it's own TV. The Master Suite provides ready access to the wrap around balcony to make sure you don't miss the sunset, or even the full moon reflecting off the gulf. As nice as the bedrooms are, they are forgotten once you enter the living area. "Spectacular" doesn't begin to define the view of the gulf that greets you. Everywhere you look, from the living room, dining area, or the kitchen, you can see the Gulf vista. All day long you see and hear the beach. It's common to see Dolphins daily, and the sunsets are spectacular (way too many photos on my phone, but can't help it). We have always preferred the Gulf side of Florida for the warm, calm waters, and this condo was the perfect compliment to the Gulf Beaches. Outside of the condo itself, the pool was a relaxing, warm escape, and beach access is Right There. This was our first time in Madeira Beach and we found the local restaurants to be great. A couple favorites were the Frog Pond and Sweet Sage. Finally, the owners, Suzie and Steve, could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We really hope we can get back here next year.
