Interaction with Guests
Under the Tiki Hut is where everyone meets if they want to be sociable.
We love being able to sit in our back garden and watch the boats go by and the wildlife on an around the water. We also love walking across the road to the beach, or walking around the corner to Johns Pass to watch the fishermen landing a catch or go to one of the many bars or restaurants available there. It is a very friendly and convenient place to live.
There are buses and trolleys at the end of the street which run up and down Gulf Blvd, and to Tyrone Square shopping mall.
Parking is available at the front of the house.
Guests can take a taxi, or super shuttle, or rent a car to get from the airport. It is approximately a 45 minute drive.

Gail and her husband were awesome hosts! We really enjoyed our stay at their house. Our apartment was spacious, clean, very well equipped (especially the kitchen) and had a very nice terrace. The location is very close to the lovely beach (5 min. walking distance). You will find everything you need in the area. The only con is the slow Wi-Fi connection, which is due to the Madeira Beach Island location. All in all a great experience, we highly recommend!
Condo is part of a house owned by very nice and helpful people . Both are brits ( so you get free british humor ! ) . Condo is clean and well located .About 5 minute walk to the main beach. The condo has a beautiful view of the intercostal from the large balcony and the kitchen .Small nice Garden. It is a quiet area . You will find the condo well equipped .Recently painted. Free parking . Condo is for one or two persons ( only one bathroom second floor ) . We stayed there for one month and would definitely recommend it to our friends . In the evening , my wife and I often walked in the area and felt safe. Thank you Gail and Roger for a memorable vacation. We felt at home... Marc & Gisele
About the Host, Gail
I have worked in the airline business for most of my career. Now I have moved to Florida with my husband where we own and run a company which assists UK companies who want to start or expand their business in the United States.
We have both travelled extensively, but love to come back to our waterfront home. We enjoy sharing and are lucky to have the room to give guests their own space to be completely independent, but able to share the beautiful views of the water and the lovely garden.
