A very comfortable stay on the beach
Reviewed on Wednesday, September 07, 2011
We stayed at Surf Song about 8 years ago and fell in love with the unit, the pool, proximity to the beach, and we love Madeira Beach. This time, we discovered that we still loved it, for the same reasons. Even though the unit was different, it was still homey, comfortable, and spacious. We loved having the two bedrooms and spacious living area, and being able to walk directly onto the beach was fantastic. I would recommend that the kitchen include salt and pepper, cooking spray, and cleanser. I did feel that this unit suffered by being so close to the outdoor seating area on the second floor, because at night, it got pretty loud.

We drove from Crawfordsville Indiana arriving on april 3, 2010 in Madeira Beach middle of the afternoon for our spring break vacation, we were able to check in with no problem and everthing was just as I told it would be.This was a last minute brooking, which worked out great. The entire week was very relaxing, clean and be able to walk to jJohn's Pass was a big plus, we have stayed many place's in the Madeira Beach area before because our son had lived just a block away, he has since moved to Seminole, which is right up the road. We will return to the area next year, my wife has reretired now so our vacation time will be a little different not having to come at the same time as everyone else. But our stay was great, nice and clean and we love the area and very relaxing. I am a photograher also and can sent you some photos that I took of your place also. We will come back to your place, so keepup the good work. The only thing that I would change to #117 is to mount the TV somewhere else, to hard to wach in bed. Thanks Joe Boswell

We stayed in #256 the last week of February, 2009. It was clean and had everything we needed. I came prepared with two sets of dishes, bowls, silverware, etc. for eating in the room for breakfast and lunch, but didn't need anything, as the room had everything we needed (4 dishes, 2 bowls, silverware, 4 glasses and coffee mugs). The room was clean and quiet (except for the first night). The people staying there are almost all over 60 years old, but that was fine (we're in our early-mid 50s). Everyone was very friendly (guests and staff). Had a light bulb burn out and it was replaced within an hour. Highly recommend it for people who want clean and nice but not extravagant. We'll be back next year I hope.

Unit clean, facilites like new, porch furniture should have been replaced however couldn't use anyway because of weather, patio door needs total replacement, hall into bath room missed it's second coat of paint, offfice staff was very helpful, took a few minutes to figure out how to get heat on cold days, furnace control markings were missing. Considering all of the above, the unit was as advertised, however, I felt it was overpriced.

Surf Song is a wonderful place to stay. The weather was fabulous and the people very friendly. In fact, we made some new friends there. We had a motel room (#256) and it was great! We were a bit concerned about whether it would be large enough for a one-week stay; however, it was perfect for us. We ate out every night, but had breakfast and lunch in the room. I brought bowls, plates, silverware, etc. but found upon arrival that I didn't need them, as they were provided. This place is clean, quiet and friendly. Families with children and teens may find it a poor fit, but for those of us over 50, this is the place!

Thanks for that great review!
Keep in mind that Surf Song is actually a great family place for kids and teens at other times of the years. Please contact our knowledable staff about the best times of year for certain ages. Winter & Fall (jan-feb - sept - oct- nov) are best for mature adults, rest of year when school is out is great for families!
Beautiful and Relaxing Vacation

We were there Dec 17-29. The condo #345 was very nice, new furniture, very comfortable and very clean. We had a side oceanview, which was good. Being a sun lover I should have thought about renting a front oceanview to enjoy the sun all day on the balcony, as well as a broader oceanview. Beach is very beautiful,pool very clean and quite a few long chairs facing the beach. Price reasonable and personnel very friendly and ready to help. Happy there was an elevator. Would definitely recommend. Location is perfect, across John's Pass Mall where you find lots of souvenir shops, a beautiful store not to miss: Lady in Brass, and lots of restaurants and Ice Cream parlours. Further down the street, went to a Grecko Restaurant: bad choice,it's always empty, felt like owner tries to sell you more and although he advertises cheap prices, it ends up being very expensive and food not that fresh... Ocean was icy cold, but went swimming 3 times. You an also see dolphins jumping out, early morning 7:30am and around 4:30pm. Suggest to rent a car and visit around.
