Beach Place Condos at John's Pass Village
Reviewed 2 April 2009

We stayed in Unit 112 and were told that it was in the process of being renovated, but would be finished before we got there. The pictures online are very deceiving, because the pictures make the place look much nicer than it really is! It looked like a great condo with granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, but the place was disgusting. We had family members come and stay with us for a few days and I was embarrassed because the place looked so bad! The floors were so dirty you couldn't walk on them with barefeet, the furniture is very outdated and the walls are a mess, they need a coat of paint very badly. One of the bedroom doors had a big hole in it, like someone tried to kick the door in. The rental agreement includes a cleaning charge, but in my opinion we should get that charge back because the place couldn't have been cleaned before we got there. I wouldn't never stay there again!

The positives of the trip: The view of the gulf and the beach are absolutely beautiful and it was so nice being right across the street from John's Pass.

This is our second stay at Beach Place Condos. WE LOVE THIS PLACE. We stayed in unit 508 which was beautiful. New kitchen and everything you need in a kitchen. Three bedrooms two baths perfect for our family. Location to Johns Pass Village is perfect. We only got in our vehicle two times all week. Once for groceries and once for a day trip to Disney World. Many fun restaurants and bars and shopping. Sunsets are beautiful. Pool is heated and very nice if you don't want to make your way down to the beach. We will be staying here many more times in our lifetime. Great Experience and Gary is wonderful to work with.

If you are vacationing in the Tampa/St. Petersburg vicinity, you can NOT do better than booking a condo unit at Beach Place Condos in Madeira Beach. We booked Unit 512 for 9 days during Christmas 2008. It is a large, well equipped 3 bedroom with a glorious few of the Gulf of Mexico from our balcony. Within minutes of depositing our luggage in the rooms , we had spotted dolphins swimming just off shore.

This was our 3rd time renting at Beach Place ( thanks Gary!!!) and each time (twice in unit 508) has been a pleasant experience. If you are going to rent, bear in mind that this is not a hotel ... you are staying at someone's home. The units are very clean, but you may find the quality and/or extent of the kitchen facilities varies from unit owner to unit owner. For example, during our stay in #512, there were only 6 dessert forks available to eat dinner with, and the set of kitchen knives were not the greatest of quality ... but you make do. On the other hand, the cooking appliances/fridge and pots and pans were excellent. T.Vs, small stereo, wireless internet all very acceptable. Sleeping facilities exceptionally clean and comfortable. By the way, the new gas B.B.Q. is an impressive addition since our last stay and was utilized almost everyday ... it was also a great way to meet and chat with other renters from all parts of North America trying to escape the winter weather in the north.

Location can't be beat ... it's up to you to enjoy the day.

Given what you get when you stay at Beach Place, why would you even consider staying anywhere else?

We found this to be everything we expected. Rented our place online from SunHost website. No surprises, except the unbelievable sunshine everyday!
Unit 304, not directly facing the beach but very well kept. Obvious the owners take time to make sure it is nice. We liked the onsite office if we had a problem they were right there every day.

We just had a great week staying in 302 at Sandy Shores (part of Beach Place). Our condo had a balcony overlooking the pool and beach, both of which are very clean. The pool and surrounding areas were thoroughly cleaned every day. The sunsets were amazing and we watched dolphins playing. The condo had a nice upgraded kitchen and was very clean. I think the work on the bridge is nearly finished but it is a bit of a nuisance if you want to turn left out of the property, you have to go across the bridge and come back, if the bridge is up it can take several minutes. My only issues with the condo are that there is no hair dryer and the lighting in the bedroom and walk in wardrobe is very dim, also there is only a small window in the bedroom which is over the beds, at night there is a bright light from the walkways shining into the bedroom, the blinds didn't block out the light. We would definitely stay in this condo again though, overall it was very nice.
