Perfect Location!

We loved the condo, it was clean with no sand anywhere or bugs. The multiple TV's where great for our family as well as the reliable wifi. Kitchen had everything we needed. The AC worked great and having a full size washer and dryer was a plus. Pool was great and had lounge areas out of the sun which was great. We normally stay in St. Pete but was so happy to be able to stay right a crossed from Johns Pass. The balcony was large enough for our whole family to enjoy and the angle to beach was great, the building design for the balconies was great. We will stay again.

Reviewed on Sunday, February 2, 2014

Really enjoyed waking up in the master bedroom and seeing the ocean! The living room was nicely furnished and good lights for reading. The WiFi connection was really fast and reliable. We liked sitting on the stools watching the cook in action. The kitchen could have been better equipped but we managed to improvise. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a large living room it worked well for my husband and I and our cousin so that we could have privacy as well as togetherness. The office staff were great and allowed us to check in early and were available to offer advice about local grocery stores and restaurants. The hot tub was not full enough the whole week but we kept expecting it to change so did not report it to anyone. The location was great and the development was relatively small and well maintained. We walked six miles on the beach every day the sun shone and it was a perfect place to return to. We hope to return to Crimson Condo on Madeira Beach in the future!

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you that we stayed at #305 condo last week at the Crimson and we absolutely LOVED it!!!! I have been travelling to the Madeira Beach area for many years and have stayed at many condos in that area, including several others at the Crimson. We usually stay in one of the beach front units but decided to try 305 this year and we were not disappointed. You had everything in your condo that we needed, not having to purchase a thing. We loved the décor and the colors that you chose and the bed was very comfortable. That picture over the master bed was breathtaking!!! The lawn chairs came in handy, along with the cooler, as we went to the beach on a daily basis. We enjoyed your place so much that we already booked your condo for next November but next year we will be staying for two weeks instead of one (Nov 15-29/14). So again thanks so much for allowing us to enjoy your condo….. We felt very much at home while staying there. See you next year.

Reviewed on Thursday, April 4, 2013

The condo was perfect for myself, husband, two children and mother. Plenty of sleeping and bathroom space. The pool was small, but adequate and the beach nice. Best of all, we weathered a hurricane and the condo was sound, didn't loose electricity, and felt safe. The units were convenient to shops/restaurants across the street and management responsive to our inquiries (I think we had a light bulb that needed changing and had a question about the wireless internet). Elevator was great for my mom since 1st floor was up one level. I would definitely return and ask for the same unit.

The perfect place to enjoy everything you love about Florida

We have been traveling from Missouri to vacation in Florida for the past 40 years and have found our top 3 places over the entire state. We love amusement parks so Orlando comes in 1st place and holds a large part of our best memories with our 3 boys through their early teens. Right behind Orlando we find the Madiera Beach area of FL in the No. 2 spot where our family grew up together well into our sons all becoming married. There are plenty of things to do around our Crimson condo at SunHost Surf Song, whether it's shopping, restaurants, family entertainment, fishing, or just enjoying the beautiful beach & sun. We continue to make sure we come down in October every year for the annual Fish Festval at John's Pass right across the street from our condo.

For the past three years, me and my family have stayed at the Crimson. In my opinion, it is the best condo on the beach. We have been coming to the beach for over 20 years and have stayed at nearly every one from Clear Water to Treasure Island. Sunhost Resorts make the rental process extra easy via the internet and check-in is hassle-free when we arrive. The units are in excellent condition and well maintained. We enjoy being within walking distance to several restaurants, a coffee shop, gift shops and nightly entertainment at John's Pass. It is well worth the money.

We stayed for 1 month and had our children and their families visit. This condo fit all our needs. It was comfortable enough for a long stay, large enough to accomodate our families stay, had a beautiful view of the ocean and was accross the street from the boardwalk with its many shops and restaurants. We found the owners to be friendly and helpful. The condo was beautifully and comfortably decorated. The condo was very clean and updated. We loved that we had 2 master suites with private baths and ocean views. We enjoyed the condo so much we have booked it again for this year.

Things like better furniture which was really old and possibly the bathrooms/kitchen/carpets. We stayed in unit 305 which redid their shower and loved it!

301 is a wonderful condo. It has a great view well equiped inside and out. Plenty of chairs on the deck. The development is extremely well kept and at all tims very clean. Great location as it is right between Clearwater and St. Petersbug so you can take advantage of shopping in both locations. In addition, right across the street offers great restaruants and many shops. My only regret is this year we waited too long to book so none of the direct beach units are not available. In 2011 we will be in one of the side units. However, since we have not stayed previously in a side unit the view might be fine. On line the unit looks wonderful. Special compliments for the folks who operated the units the rental people are so very friendly and helpful it is like visting family. Conch Republic is a fun restaurant, not too far away, and the crab legs are outstanding. Frenchy's Rocaway Grill in Clearwater is a sit outside restaurant, very reasonable, fun, and great sunsets.

The condo was wonderful. We had plenty of room to stretch out without feeling like we were on top of each other (like most hotel rooms). We have three children, so the two beds in the second bedroom worked out great for us. The kids loved the shower in the master bathroom! The washer & dryer were an added bonus. The view was great (loved the extra large balcony- it was very relaxing), the beach was very quiet and we all loved to watch the sun set. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would 100% stay again if we come down that way!

The place was just as shown on the website. It was very clean and a great location. The only thing I felt it needed was some more cooking utensils and paper goods. Had a late check in and the office closes early but was able to obtain my key with no problem.

Hello, Despite the unseasonably cold weather, we made the most of our week and always thoroughtly enjoy staying at the Crimson. We especially like it because there aren't too many units...just right for us. The only thing I noticed that was needing attention was a huge black growth in the upper patio side of the ceiling/wall in the master bedroom. Some kind of spider web or fungus growth, not sure what it was. I kept forgetting to mention it when I was in the office. It definitely wasn't enough to deter our returning to the wonderrful Crimson.

Location, upkeep and cleaning, service, amenities, all couldn't have been better. Heated pool was great. Our only issue was the full size bed in the master bedroom. A room that large should have a king-size. We're used to a king and it was a little tough for us to adjust.

January in Florida

Reviewed on Friday, February 12, 2010

We enjoyed our stay in FL (1/2-1/30-2010) and the Crimson across from John's Pass. We were here for some very cold weather. Did not use the pool until Jan 19. It was a nice pool, but took a long time to warm up because of the wind tunnel under the building which kept it much cooler than the pool at the condo next to us. The whirlpool was much too hot, so did not use that until we had them turn it down. The condo was cool when it was cold outside, because of the ceramic floor. The bathrooms got mold in the showers after a couple of weeks. We got a brush form the office and cleaned them ourselves. This was a great location-food-entertainment-shopping all right across the street. Waltz Fish Shack was a great place in the pass to eat. The condo was plenty big for us and our kids and grandkids-6 of us was perfect. Having 3 bathrooms was a real luxury. Furniture was very nice and we liked it that it was not decorated much-so we did not have to worry about stuff getting broke. Kitchen was very nice with upgraded appliances. Alice Matson

103 Crimson Condo

Reviewed on Thursday, June 25, 2009

We had originally booked another unit and were disappointed. The staff were incredibly helpful, even offering to stay late until we found a unit we liked. Thanks to you all. 103 Crimson was perfect for us. It was like home away from home. The unit was spotless and the pool and hot tub were always really clean. The units and pool area are secure. We would definately consider returning to this unit. The only drawback we found - there is not a lot for kids to do.

Great room

Reviewed on Monday, June 15, 2009

We have stayed at the Crimson several times and this was probably one of the better rooms. Even though it was not a beach front we still had a nice view of the beach. And the added benefit that it was a lot quieter than the beach front as you dont have the pool under your room or the beach traffic passing by. It is also at the end of the building so traffic outside your door was limited. The room was clean and everything worked. Very convenient location to stores and St Johns Pass is right across the street. Would definately rent this room again.

Great Beach Escape

Reviewed on Monday, June 15, 2009

We just spent a wonderful week at Crimson #203 and had a great time. This 3 bedroom / 3 bath was ideal for my husband & I, my brother and his wife and 2 teenagers. The beach is just a short walk away and St John's Pass offers many restaurants and shops. It was fun to stroll through the shops. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was ideal, so we were able to wash our beach towels and clothes. Don't forget the laundry detergent, napkins, paper towels. You will also need to bring your own beach towels. The view from the balcony was nice but it did over look the pool next door. If you need a smaller unit, there are 2 bedroom ones that directly face the beach. We had a great time! Enjoy.

Wonderful Stay on the Beach

Reviewed on Saturday, June 13, 2009

My family and I spent a week at the Crimson and have stayed before. The location is great - right across from Johns Pass and the beach is beautiful. What we really liked about this unit was all the room. It is very spacious with two master bedrooms & baths. There were six of us and we never felt crowded. We did have an issue with the floors. Although they looked to be clean, they weren't and the bottoms of our feet & socks were black from walking on the floors. Still, we had a lovely time and will definitely stay again. I hope the floor issue will be taken care of. I'm sure a good cleaning would help.

What a perfect vacation. The condo was so spacious and right on the beach with a great view. Besides a trip or two to the grocery store, everything is walking distance. I loved walking across the street to John's Pass to shop in the cute stores and have a few drinks in the afternoon by the water. Great relaxing vacation!

I would, and have, recommend the Crimson condos to all. We have stayed in both the two bedroom and the three bedroom units. These were both very spacious and clean,all the conviences of home, Tv's in all bedrooms and living room,washer and dryer to use at our conveince and a full kitchen to cook in. The view of the gulf was spectacular,from our balcony we were able to watch the dolfins swim pass each morning as we were having our breakfast.The beach is clean and well maintained,great swimming and shell collecting. Fishing from the pier was great,my husband caught a two pompano, which he gave away and a small shark which he released. The location is great as we were across from John's Pass. Here we were able to take some great boat cruises,great shoping and dinning here also. We drove down so we had our own car but if you do not you can use the colourful trams, for a minimal cost, these trams will take you from Clearwater to Pass A Grille. We will defiently stay here again.

We had a wonderful week at the Crisom and had a wonderful time. This is the first time that we stayed in Madeira Beach and this was a great location to vacation. The view was excellent; we could sit on the balcony and just look at the beach. Everything was in walking distance, shops and places to eat. I would definitely recommend this place. The only thing that I wish they did, (I get this at my other condos) they should give you a little welcome basket that has some things in t to get you started so you don't have to run to the store as soon as you get there. Coffee, dish soap, etc.

Great for a family reunion

We recently stayed in #203 of Crimson. Our entire family stayed in the condo(son,daughter-in-law,grandson,daughter,son-in-law,granddaughter,my husband and myself. We really enjoyed our vacation. There was ample dishes, utensils and towels. Since there were 3 families under 1 roof an extra set of keys would have been helpful.Also a roll of paper towels would have come in handy with 2 grand children. We would also have liked to have a pen and paper handy for notes and grocery lists. We were told that there was a DVD player at the condo but there was not one there. All in all, we had a great time and would go back again. So close to the beach and John's Pass.

Family Christmas Gift

Reviewed on Sunday, April 26, 2009

Crimson Condo is only a step away from the ocean, great food and entertainment. Crimson has the most beautiful pool and hot tub. The pool and condo units are locked so that people who do not stay at the Crimson can not get in. I rent for 2 weeks-I stay one week by myself and i feel so safe. I never feel afraid to stay alone. The staff is very friendly and will help you with any of your needs. The units are very clean. Can't pack lots of things in that suitcase now--every unit has a washer and dryer. Most units have just been repainted and recarpeted most have new furniture. Their are lots of boat trips for the kids within walking distanc. I would highly suggest the pirate ship , the dolphin watch ,the boat trip to shell island or jet ski. I also suggest renting a boat and taking a ride thru the intercoastal waters. I make the Crimson my 2 week Christmas gift to my children every year. My kids are 30, 35 and 27 Its hard to purchase gifts so for the past 10 years I have sent out invitations for them to come during the 2 weeks in March for a visit. Every year they have all excepted and its the best family get together!!! Try this on you next Christmas--you will not regret its!

Great condo, close to everything

Reviewed on Thursday, April 23, 2009

Big and well furnished condo, loved the walk in shower and big balcony the condo building and the building next door are really close together but being on the top floor you had the advantage of extra privacy. This unit was not direct ocean front but we were on the side and we still could view the ocean from the balcony and went to bed with sliding glass doors open and could hear the ocean perfectly. Right across the street was John's Pass and we could walk over and eat lunch or supper anytime there were a lot of restaurants, ice cream shops to choose from and a great coffee shop if you need an espresso pick me up during the day. I would stay here again.

Condo 303 is a great one, would like to have seen more dishes and matching ones at that to be able to have enough for two meals before having to wash them. Condo 303, should have in the entranceway some pictures, shells, glass works of art, etc that say "Welcome to my home" It seems to be so sterile. The unit is clean and functional but the personal touch is missing. This is well kept up clean unit and does the job of a place to stay and close to everything and we would come back to it. The sunsets are beautiful and well worth being on the water and the two teenage girls loved the pool, spa, and beach. Thank you

The hot tub could be perhaps a little hotter but that is the only (minor) comment I can make. Oh yes, the unit would be improved by the addition of a DVD player to the otherwise excellent entertainment centre. All in all 5 1/2 stars out of a maximum 5!!

We had a great week at the Crimson Condo. The condo was on the beach with a great view of the area. Everything we needed was in the condo, from cooking to recreation this condo had it all. One of the cleanest places we have stayed too! We were located in walking distance to St. Johns Pier, so we were able to walk there easily and enjoy the shops and food. While at the pier we were able to see dolphins daily and even a manatee. I highly recommend this location for a relaxing vacation with a great view and nearby activities.

Best Condo

Reviewed on Sunday, November 9, 2008

This was the best privately owned condo I've stayed at ever. The bedrooms were nice sized with plenty of closet and drawer storage. The bathrooms were perfect for our family of four. The master bath has a huge shower with plenty of space for two. A spacious and well equipped kitchen met all of our cooking and eating needs. There were even plenty of wine glasses and a cork screw for those evenings when I needed to have a glass or two out on the huge balcony watching the sun go down. The property was very calm and easy going overall. The only disturbance we experienced was next door at the Surf Song where a man was doing some kind of construction on one of the units. Thankfully it wasn't extremely early and he didn't work late. The lawn guys show up early however and if you want to sleep in that particular morning, keep the windows and doors closed. My husband and I didn't get great rest due to the less than comfortable mattress in the master bedroom. I left the suggestion with the management to have it replaced. We had plenty of room to spread out when we were winding down, watching tv or whatnot. When it was time to swim in the pool, there were some things my son could use in the entry closet such as a pair of flippers and some goggles. The rules for the pool include no floats or tubes, but he was just as pleased to use what was provided. Some beach chairs in the closet were broken, but we didn't use them anyway. The shops and restaurants at John's Pass were so close you "could" walk, but the construction and the traffic infront of the condo deemed somewhat risky. Especially with children. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would love to come back.

We have stayed at Crimson on the Gulf many times. This was our first time in this unit, and as usual, everything was wonderful. This is a very private building with a great pool and the building is set up with such great views from the balconies. We have been staying since our children were young and they are now teenagers. They love coming to the area as much as we do. There is so much to see and do and so many things within a short driving distance. Highly recommended..... Our hockey committments this season are the only thing stopping us from coming back this Christmas.

This is a nice, large condo on the beach. The view of the beach is excellent. The 3 bedrooms and living spaces were quite comfortable and plenty big enough for our family of 4 plus 1 set of grandparents. While there, we had a problem with the microwave in the unit. The staff was very accomodating and provided a suitable replacement as ours was being replaced. Also, this unit has an update that utilizes a stackable washer/dryer (plenty big) and gives even more space in 1st master bath/closet area.
