This is a great condo. You get exactly what the pictures tell you, except when we opened the closet door and all of the beach gear was there it was great! Umbrellas, chairs, noodles, wakeboards...what a treat...the teenagers loved it. The view..sitting out watching the thunder storms go across Tampa and out to the Gulf was incredible. And there was no oil on the beach..just as they had promised. If it was available for our dates this year I will definately go back
We have been coming to Madeira Beach for over 20 years, staying in different condos. This is one of the nicest we have stayed in. It was clean and comfortable and the view from the balcony was great!
The location was good, right on the beach, and Johns Pass across the road with shops and restaurants.
The staff were very helpful and pleasent. We would stay at #413 Madeira Norte again.

We have rented condos at Madiera Norte for several years. It is a great value, wonderful beach and convenient location. Many of the units, including #413, have been remodeled recently. All of the units are clean and comfortable.

We stayed in unit 515 and loved this condo. It suited our needs with two small children and ourselves. The building is well maintained and check in was an easy experience. When I had trouble with keys I was given new keys later in the day. The only problem was the pool heater wasn't working when we arrived and was not fixed until late in the week. We enjoyed our stay and would definately return.

This place is great! I have absolutely no complaints and we are very picky travellers. The condo looks exactly like the pictures online. It is very clean and had everything we needed. It felt like home away from home. The location is great, it is close to everything you need-entertainment, food, shopping etc..The pool was nice and clean and the beach was amazing. I would recommend this condo to everyone.
It was a great vacation right from the beginning, check in was easy, hassle free and quick!!! And you could not get a better location. Madiera Norte is right on the beach and right across the street from John's Pass, which has great shopping and restaurants. We stayed in condo #413 and it was spotless and had everything we needed!
I have been renting units at the Madeira Norte for a few years now and this one was really great!! It was very clean
and had everything we needed. The location is close to lots of amenities and the beach is super. I would highly recommend this unit for your vacation!!
This was the most laid back vacation we have had. This condo is the perfect location for everything. You can walk to Johns Pass for dining and shopping. Ocean front room with patio doors in the living room and master bedroom so you can listen to the ocean at night and watch the activity during the day. Check in and check out was a breeze. Can't wait to go back.
Had a wonderful time and such a beautiful view of the beach! Hard working maitenence and kept things really clean.
The room was clean, spacious and had every amenity. The view was amazing and our family had a great time. Could not hav sked for anything more. We'll definitely be back.

We love Madeira Beach and the Sun Host resorts. The unit that we rented this year, Madeira Norte #413 had been recently re-furbished and re-decorated making it the best of the units that we have rented, although all have been clean, comfortable and well kept.
You can't beat the price, the location is great and the beach is the best - clean, safe and not crowded. During the five or six spring vacations that we have spent at Madeira Norte, we have always found the Sun Host staff to be friendly and helpful. We would highly recommended Sun Host resorts to anyone looking for an affordable beach vacation.

Our accomodations were very good and the condo was furnished with all the necessary amenities. We had an excellent location. From our side sliding doors, we could see the moon disappear and did not want to miss it. We liked this the best and the weather did not co-operate, but the friendly atmosphere was great.
We had an excellent time. The service given us was top notch and the room was quite nice and very well located.

We have stayed in the resort before and hence it was an easy decision to stay again . We love the location across from John's Pass and the beach is wide with minimal crowds . The resort is older but kept very clean . Our condo has been renovated recently and was excellent except for a very squeaky master bed .

This is an excellent condo for a family! My husband and I stayed here
with our two young children and had a wonderful experience! My
favorite part is the view of the beach and the gulf!!! My only complaint
is that there is NOT a DVD player, so it was good that we brought our
portable for the kids. Also, the bed in the master bedroom is not very
comfortable. I would definitely return and stay in the condo because
for me, it's all about the view!!!!!!!!

Our family, my husband, 13-year old son and myself, spent March break at this resort. We have stayed in the area once before at a different resort. We were pleased with the resort. Loved the location; on the beach and close to John's pass; loved the parking and the overall resort. Aa few issues with the unit itself; a bit dated; did not like the old shag carpet and the air conditioning unit did not work first two days. But maintenance was quick to help fix it and the unit itself was clean and well stocked. Our only compaint would be the shag carpet in the unit and the need for a key for so many places. Understand the need, but it is a nuicance when your hands are full trying to dig out your key. Overall had a great time and are hoping to be able to come back next year. We will probably try for a different unit.
Thanks very much. Jackie and Mike Beaudin
Our family of three enjoyed a one-week stay at Madeira Norte. Unlike
so many other high-rise resorts on Gulf Blvd, Madeira Norte is a lot
smaller. The unit we stayed in was average at best. We had problems
with the air conditioning and the unit needed a general upgrade.
Despite that we enjoyed the proximity to the beach and to John's Pass.
We were in walking distance of excellent restaurants and shopping.
Some guests complained the pool was too small and there was no hot
but but that wasn't a concern for our family. We go to Florida to enjoy
the beach and the Gulf waters.
We plan to return but will look for a unit with a few more upgrades.

We booked only two weeks prior to our stay. For being so last minute, we were greatful to have found a condo with the ammenities we were looking for. This room had a lovely ocean front view. The unit needs some updates. The furniture was nice, but definately needing new appliances and a new master bed. The freezer did not freeze..so no ice cream for our kids. :( But, overall we were blessed to have found it at the last minute and at a great price too! We would stay again, if there were no other available rooms with better upgrades. The maintenance manager in this facility was A+!! He was very thorough and helpful. I would highly reccomend this facility....maybe try and find a nicer room if that's important to you.

We had stayed in this building before so we were familiar with the amenities etc. and the view from the balcony is amazing however it was the worst prepared unit we have ever rented in over 15 years of going to Madeira Beach. There were many examples that I could go on about this unit but I won't waste my time, for illustrative purposes there were four spoons in the entire condo! The management office is unorganized and ill informed as well so be prepared if you are utilizing their services, I know that we will never again.
Although I only live a few miles from Madeira Norte, spending Thanksgiving week there felt as if I was a million miles from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
The condo is comfortable and well-appointed, but "family" enough so that you feel right at home.
Across the street from John's Pass means not having to drive to do a little shopping or get a great dinner; situated right on the beach with great views and easy access; we loved it.
AND, we're booked for Thanksgiving week, 2008!! Can't wait!
