Great Location!

Reviewed on Saturday, October 8, 2016

This was my first time staying with your Resort and my parents and I had a great 4 days that we were there. We were suppose to stay until October 8th but due to Hurricane Matthew coming across and the East coast of Florida being evacuated and told to use i75 that forced us to leave on Wed Oct 5th so we didn't get stuck in the traffic from the hurricane. It took us 30 straight hours to get home by driving. I wish some where in your return policy we would have been able to get some money back but I understand it's Mother Nature and you can't really factor that into a clause even though we stayed for half our visit. We really did enjoy your condos and what there was to offer around it. We would be definitely coming back again just not when there's a hurricane in the forecast.

Security camera and key for stairs and elevator are nice . Condo was perfect for the week. Kitchen well stocked, beds were comfy, balcony was big. We sat on balcony when it was raining, every morning and evening. You can see the beach on a diagonal view. Air conditioning worked well, but we brought fans for white noise. There were kids that ran around, on the floor above us. Johns pass across the street, and we ate at boardwalk grill three days in a row! Pool limit is 8 max but that was not usually an ossue because the beach was right there. Thank you for a great week. I plan to rent from again.

Clean and Perfect Location

Reviewed on Friday, March 15, 2013

The condo is in a perfect location, right across from John's Pass and steps away from the beach. Room is clean, Kitchen has been updated from the previous year, overall the place is perfect. The only thing I recommend is that the bathrooms would need updating, they are not bad but could be done and also a fresh coat of paint to change the colours to modern day colours. Besides that it is good value for where you are. I will be booking again for the same time next year. Hopefully things do get changed up a little. Service was excellent

On the Beach - Excellent Location & Accomodations

Reviewed on Friday, March 8, 2013

Our condo provided great views of the Gulf sunsets and beach. The only regret is the small size of the pool and the build up of seaweed left to litter on the beach. Tasty dining available across the street for "pub style" fare as well as Thai. Directly located across from John's Pass!

Location Location. Condo was perfect. Best view of the sunset and still can see Bamboo Beer Gardens at John's Pass. The beach is so beautiful you could walk for hours. If you want to walk for dinner, there is plenty to choose from at John' pass directly across the street. If I had to complain it would be the lock on the front door was hard to lock and open. Everything was so wonderful we plan on going back.

We are returning customers of the Sun Host group accommodations. This was one of the less luxurious/ cheaper condos but it was clean, well equipped and is in a great location on the beach and across the road from the John's Pass. You can only see the beach from the balcony. The only problems we had were the dishwasher was old and struggled to clean the dishes and the kitchen cupboards were well worn and needed replacing. May have been updated by now.

Sun, Sea and Sand -The Perfect Holiday Ingredients

Reviewed on Saturday, February 23, 2013

Unit 510 is in a prime location near John's Pass with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from and being a gulf front top floor condo the ocean views were great. It was very clean and comfortable and well equiped except for some items of cutlery and crockery (eg some casserole lids were missing and nothing matched in the cutlery drawer. A decent wine bottle opener and some kitchen roll would have been appreciated too) The agency we rented from also advertised a DVD Player in the unit (it could also be clearly seen in the video)but there was none. This too would have appreciated as Dvd's could be hired locally ( and you need to be an Egghead to understand Usa's TV listings!) These were only minor annoyances. however and did not stop us from having a great holiday.

Very relaxing and convenient to everything with a nice beach.

Reviewed on Friday, February 22, 2013

We enjoyed our stay and everything was very convenient including restaurants within walking distance. The beach was well maintained and not crowded. The only two things we were a little disappointed with were the mattress on the master bedroom bed that was worn out, and when we got to the room the commode was running in one of the bathrooms. I called the office to report it, around noon, and maintenance did not come until the following day. In the meantime the commode ran constantly for almost 24 hours without stopping and the sound was annoying plus the commode could not be used until it was fixed. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

The kitchen and bathroom decor is older but very clean and well equipped. The rest of the unit was very clean and nicely decorated. Only have three complaints. 1) There was no screens on the sliding doors to the belcony 2) The a/C unit is on the roof and being one of the top units it is very loud. 3) The remote for the main tv (cable box) was not work and the SunHost staff could not rectify it. Do to the cable being in the unit owners name nothing could be done. What a waste of the big LCD HD tv. Other then that loved the unit and would stay there again. The whole building is very clean. Loved being right on the beach. Johns pass being right across the road was nice with all its shops and restraunts. The best was sitting on the belcony at the end of the day and watching the sunset.

We were very happy with this unit, it had all the amenities we needed and we know this building well and it's a great location, close to lots of restaurants and shopping. The only problem we had was the bed in the master bedroom, it was so uncomfortable and hard we ended up using the other room. We have heard from friends that stayed after us, that the bed has been changed so that's a good thing. The service from Sunhost was very good.

My wife and I have stayed at Surf Song for years dating back to 1994. This room at Madeira Norte had by far the best views and beds we've ever had! The guests at Surf Song however, are much more friendlier and the pool is much larger with a comfort zone that is much nicer and fewer restrictions. Saying this, It still will be very hard to choose between the two resorts.

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.

Seven Days in Paradise

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.

Beautiful Condo Great view

Our family spent a wonderful week at Madeira Norte #214. Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and walking the beach were highlights. Our daughter swam with the dolphins in the Gulf as they swam by the condo. She could reach out and touch them. We could walk across the street to John's Pass and the wonderful shops along the boardwalk. The Unit itself was beautiful. Completely redone and very comfortable. All in all a terrific week. We would like to thank the very helpful staff in the office for the extra assistance given to us during our stay. You are truly great people.

Beautiful View Inside and Out!!

This is our 7th time staying at a SunHost Resort. The staff is wonderful and the service is fabulous. We couldn?t ask for better! We stayed at this particular property for 8 days. The d?cor created and warm and inviting ambiance. The kitchen was well stocked with many useful items, coffee pot, blender, utensils, etc. We even used the washer/dryer; it was so cute and tiny! There were two basically two separate but adjoining bathrooms each with a toilet, sink and mirror. This made it very nice for two people to get ready at the same time, and still be in the ?same? room. The view from the living room balcony was nice? There was a single lone palm tree in front of the balcony but it didn?t really seem to be in the way of the view. The view from the bedroom was beautiful and not obstructed at all from the palm tree. You can see all the way down the right side of the beach. The one thing that we didn?t care for was the fact that every thing was locked. You can?t use the elevator without a key; you can?t get on or off the beach without your key, etc. For example: my husband and I went down to the beach with only one key. I forgot something so I headed back up to the room. Then my husband decided he wanted to go back to the room for something too, but couldn?t because he didn?t have a key to get off the beach. He had to wait for me to come back to open the gate for him. If you like strict security or don?t mind it? then just remember to get a key for everyone in your party so that you can all come and go as you please. I hope this review was helpful and that you stay here or at any of the SunHost Resorts? You just can?t go wrong! Happy Vacationing!

Based on experience

We have stayed at Madeira Norte on numerous occasions. Other units in which we have stayed have offered much more amenities, this includes cable television in the second bedroom. Compared to other units at this address in which we have stayed, this one was sparsely supplied. From cooking utensils to more recreational items (fishing poles, umbrelas, etc), other units have provided more. Now, I don't expect this. We bring our own equipment for the activities in which we plan to engage. Some of these ideas came from what was available in the previous units in which we have stayed. Also, this unit was in obvoius need of interior repair. Did I have fun for the week I was there, yeah. Have I had more enjoyable times at other units at the same address, yes. I will recommend this address and will recommend other property managers. Our unit lacked an indication that the owner wanted the individual paying to stay there that they are committed to making it memorable experience.

Great place for families

My family and I enjoyed the stay at the Madeira North Condo. Security is #1 and is quite too. Most important thing for us was that the beach is just a minute away. I would recommend this place to all the families with children.

Best Thnksgiving we ever had

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!

Everything was to my satisfaction at Christmas. The accomodation, the staff of Surf Song, the neighbors, the endless beach, the peaceful surroundings. The township neighborhood in Johns Pass(?) was relaxed and gave me the feeling of beeing somewhere out in the countryside. Yet there are good shops and restaurants in walking distance from your premises. And by car the location is close to everything you could ever need. I know the party of our closest family will fondly remember the wonderful Christmas Holidays we spent at Madeira Norte in 2007.

Could be nice!

Could be nicer, the carpet in the living room needed to be replaced with tile, the unit could have used a real good cleaning, under the recliner, looked like it had not been cleaned in months, I was under the impression that I was renting a 2 bath, 2 bedroom, What I got was a 2 bedroom,1 1/2 bath. The following week we moved to another resort, the unit was marvalous, ocean front, and at a much better price. So next time in Tampa/ St. Pete, I'll be staying at the other resort. Sorry, Bill Perry
