Wow! What a Great Condo, Clean
Is there anything more pleasant than hearing the ocean crash against the shore. This condo sits on the beach with a great location. The condo was nicely decorated and furnished. And most important it was clean and fresh. The condo complex is well kept. The were applying fresh paint in the hallways and garage area while we were there. We had a great time exploring the area and our adult sons had a great time enjoying the local nightlife. If you are looking for a place to stay this condo is that place. Absolutely spotless. The ultimate testament is to tell everyone we will most definitely rent this condo again when we return to Madeira Beach.

It is very difficult to rent site unseen; however, I was very pleased upon my arrival. The condo was very pretty and totally comfortable. I had visitors for lunch, and they were also delighted to see this lovely property.

The condo was immaculate and very well maintained, and very secure. I felt very safe on my vacation.  I did enjoy the Fisherman restaurant at John’s Pass very much. Plus it was fun just to stroll around the area. Upon my husband’s arrival we stopped in at the Conch restaurant and found it to be very loud, crowded and would definitely not recommend this eatery at all.  Hopefully I will be able to return next year. Debbie was a joy to meet and work with on making this vacation possible. Thanks ever so much

Paradise
Third visit and it never fails to take our breath away as you walk through the door.  As well as the fantastic views the location is ideal right opposite Johns Pass with its great restaurants, bars and its setting and general vibe. The trolley stop is just outside if you wish to explore further afield.  But the best is knowing that the owners will go out of there way to make your holiday just that…a holiday…couldn’t get DVD to work…sorted for us.  There is everything you need at the condo beach stuff, barb-b stuff, music, games, great pool, Jacuzzi and right on beach. it is the type of place you just don’t want to leave.

Absolutely Breathtaking!
Couldn’t have had a better place to stay! The corner unit was ideal having the view of ocean and pool all day! Very relaxing! The owners are wonderful! Pool area and beach were never crowded. Had wonderful walks on the beach, hunting for beautiful shells, sand dollars, etc. Everything you needed in this unit plus! Had a blender for my pina coladas every day! 🙂 Walking distance or short car ride to wherever you want to go! Enjoyed miniature golfing, dog track, John’s Pass (a few trips!), eating out at Gigi’s Italian Restaurant (nothing like Chicago style pizza – thin crust and homemade Sangria) and Oyster Shuckers in St. Pete’s which was all you can eat crab legs for a reasonable price. All and all, a wonderful trip! Best part of the Chambre’ location are the sunsets! Absolutely beautiful!

Perfect vacation home away from home
This is my second year coming to this condo and I find it to be a perfect home away from home, with all the amenities. The location on the gulf is ideal…plenty of dining and entertainment within walking distance and close to several area attractions by a short drive. Don’t miss the sunsets from the corner balcony! The condo itself has all the features necessary for a comfortable stay: full kitchen; full-sized washer & dryer; reserved parking; comfortable furniture; FREE Wi-Fi and much more! I will continue to come here as often as possible. Deb and Dave are wonderful to deal with. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a vacation rental in Madeira Beach.

Great place to stay
We have stayed at this condo for several years…It is just a wonderful place to stay…quiet, friendly people in the building, clean and lots to do locally…The condo is equipped with everything you need .I cant say enough about the condo.

Our home away from home
Wish we could stay there for more than a week each year. This was our 4th year. Debbie is a wonderful host. The unit is clean and fully furnished. She even keeps beach chairs and toys in the unit for renters to use. We love that the unit overlooks the pool so we can keep an eye on the kids if we have to run upstairs for something. John’s pass is a short walk to the south. Dining, entertainment, church, shopping, fishing and more. You really don’t need a car for a week here. We love the views from the balcony. We also love that the complex is not huge. Plenty of room on the beach to spread out.

Perfect Location!
This place was amazing! Right on the ocean with perfect views of the whole coast and beautiful palm trees. The rooms were plenty spacious for four adults and a toddler. They had some beach toys and chairs we were able to take advantage of when we ventured down to the beach. The location was also excellent. Close to John’s Pass/boardwalk with a lot of tourist shops and a lot of restaurants within walking distance from the condo. The décor in the condo was very nice and “homey”. I was really surprised the owners had that many nice paintings/photos/decorations in a condo that is rented. It seemed like they literally opened their home to us and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. Truly a great experience through and through!

Thank you…Thank you.. Thank you!!!
WOW… What a great vacation place to stay at! I had a wonderful time and being my first time seeing the ocean, I couldn’t believe how close I was! It was a great location for shops and restaurants and of course walking out and stepping right on the beach! Thank you very much for everything. I had a great vacation and was able to relax while listening to the waves, and I even was able to see dolphins while I was sitting on the baloney! It was a great vacation spot and I would love to go back sometime. THANK YOU!

Fantastic Condo
We have stayed at this Condo a few times in the last couple of years and wanted to stay again as it is like a home from home. 
As soon as we walk out onto the Balcony and see that lovely blue water you can feel yourself being so rested.  As usual we seen Dolphins playing near the water edge and we had our usual walks up and down the beach.  The owners are great to book with and the Condo is always so nice and clean. It is in a great location with only minutes to walk to Johns Pass and all its shops and Restaurants.  We would definitely recommend anyone looking at this condo to book as we are sure you will not be disappointed.  We will be back again for sure.

Great Place
Great clean condo.  Location was great. Close to lots of restaurants and things to do. And of course step outside and you are on the beach. We had a great time and will be back for sure.

Great vacation home away from home
Loved this place-what a great week we had, the beach and the gulf everything was clean, beds were sooo comfortable. This is a place we would vacation at again and again. Great views, places to eat at, shop at, even did the miniature golf, what fun. Having the condo to relax in was truly enjoyable. Would recommend this place to everyone.

WONDERFUL
We had a wonderful month in Feb. 2011. The condo is everything it says it is….Deb is great…We have stayed in other condos and find this to be far superior than any other. It was very clean and well equipped. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have fun. The people in the building are helpful and friendly….We intend to come back…

Perfect holiday!
My daughter and I stayed here over Thanksgiving of 2010 and we enjoyed every second of it! The condo is so nicely decorated and very, very clean. Deb & Dave provided everything you could need for your stay. Everyone around the building was so friendly! The pool was exceptionally clean as well. We enjoyed many sunsets from the balcony and had fun shopping in the area. Many brochures, menus, and ideas for activities were provided at the condo. We will definitely trying to find an excuse for another vacation!

We are back again
We stayed at this condo last year and because we had such a great time we decided to come back. We were not disappointed. The condo was exactly how we remembered it and straight away we felt like we were home.
The weather for our stay was fantastic, not a cloud in the sky and the sunsets were just amazing.  We had a very relaxing time just walking along the shore or sitting on the beach. Again the dolphins appeared and it is so nice to see them swimming around. We also love seeing the Pelicans flying past as we sit on the balcony of the condo.
If we are back next year we hope to stay here again.

The Perfect Get-Away!
Even though our week was unusually cold and windy (65 for us Northerners isn’t that bad!), we enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful condo. When you open the front door, you feel like you are “home”…..it is warm and cozy and decorated with wonderful beach stuff and pictures taken by the owner. Breakfast on the balcony is a must, and a better view of the sunset you will not find! Enjoyed my early morning beach walks to John’s Pass and back, and enjoyed taking pictures of the birds and waves. So much to do during the day…most of it within walking distance. Our favorite restaurant, Mario’s, is a must and a unique dining experience….a small family-owned business only a short walk away. A week isn’t enough in this beautiful place, so we will be back for more! Thank you to Debbie for making sure everything was perfect and we were well taken care of. Thank you for sharing your wonderful little corner of the world with all of us!

SUN, SEA, & SAND
This Condo is really perfect for a beach vacation. It is very clean, nicely furnished and everything is in the condo that you would need. It is situated right on the beach and you can watch the dolphins swim by as you sit on the balcony relaxing. The owner is really nice and helpful. The building itself is in a great situation for walking to Johns Pass and we have stayed in this building 3 times now and think it is the best. We will be back.

Fish, Fish & More Fish
We had a spectacular vacation here.  The location is perfect – just the right distance from John’s Pass – close enough to walk… far enough to be away from the business.  I went fishing several times and caught many fish – thanks to Deb & Dave for suggestions on where to go!  The kids loved the pool and having the beach right out in front. They had beach chairs and toys for the kids to use. My wife loved how clean the place was and all of the pretty decorations. She got to take pictures of sunsets – and sit on the beach reading so all in all… everyone of us was happy.  We had fantastic Italian food at a little placed called Mario’s and great grouper sandwiches at Wahoo’s.  We are very hopeful that we can return this fall.

Good Times
This was the perfect place for our vacation.  The condo was spotless, well stocked, cute and comfortable. We rented a car but could have gotten by easily without as a bus stop was close by and dining and shopping were within walking distance. Our favorite activities were eating, shell hunting, boating and bird watching. Our favorite food was fresh grouper tacos, flounder sandwiches and Bubba Gumps shrimp and hush puppies.. Our favorite purchase was some awesome watercolor prints by RIzzi, a local artist. Our best memories were a manatee sighting, spending time with great people, the unbelievable sunset over the water, the sound of the waves, breakfast on the balcony while watching the dolphins play, and our moonlit walks along the beach.

Didn’t want to leave
Wow – what a great place to vacation.  This condo is spacious and spotlessly clean. The décor is updated, tropical and comfortable. We did something every day we were there – a dolphin watching cruise, para-sailing, horseback riding, walks on the beach… shopping… lots of shopping.  We really enjoyed the clean white beach and watching all of the birds – blue heron, pelicans, snowy egrets, terns and egrets were there to entertain on a daily basis. We saw dolphins almost every day and tried to get a picture of them.  There were so many great restaurant choices, it would be hard to pick a favorite, but we really enjoyed watching the boats and dolphins go by when dining at John’s Pass…. thanks for the list for suggested places to go – it was a big help.  Thanks for memories that will last a lifetime.

Perfect Florida Vacation
This was the perfect place for our family vacation. The condo is in a lovely small building with no crowds. The location is great – close enough to walk to John’s Pass, but far enough away to be quiet & relaxing. The condo is beautiful and was equipped with everything our family needed for a great time. I love the washer & Dryer inside so I didn’t have to go out for laundry. The kids played on the beach or the pool every day. We went to Busch Gardens one day. It is just a short drive and lots of fun. We also took the kids on jet skis and a dolphin watching cruise… but you can see dolphin from the balcony too!! 
The owners went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful trip. We can’t wait to go back.

Perfect Escape!!!
What a perfect place to escape to! Beautiful condo, completely equipped, clean and right off the beach! When we weren’t playing on the white sandy beach we were enjoying it while sitting on the balcony. John’s Pass offered shopping and excellent dining and was just a short walk away. We went deep sea fishing. Took a break from the sun and drove to Busch Gardens one day and Universal Studios another. The pool and hot tub were awesome! The owners are so nice and truly want their guests to relax and enjoy themselves! We look forward to many more visits! Can’t rave enough! Thank you!

Had a wonderful time on our Honeymoon
My wife and I stayed at the condo for our Honeymoon the week before Christmas of 2007. We had a truly wonderful time. The condo was very accommodating, as well as very clean. It had all the amenities we needed, laundry, full kitchen, a swimming pool. Plus the fact that it is directly on the beach. There was plenty of food and shopping within walking distance at John’s Pass. We also went on a couple of different water and land based sight seeing tours based from John’s Pass. Also there is a trolley that stops right in front of the condo complex that you can ride all day for $3. It can take you as far north as Clearwater Beach, and as far south as Pass-A-Grille beach. I would recommend a stay here for a nice quiet get away, or for those looking for lots of fun and activity. We are looking forward to returning here for another vacation.

Ocean View
The Condo listed in this ad was more than I expected. I felt like I was staying at my friends house. Attractive, clean, and comfortable.  There was a kite exhibit on the beach while I was there which provided a free day of entertainment. A pleasant surprise to fit my budget.  I highly recommend this condo for a great time on the ocean. Oh, and did I mention the sunsets? Beautiful!  My favorite restaurant in the area, and anywhere else I think, is The Columbia in Clearwater on HWY 19. The Sangria is wonderful.

  1. “I think we found our new favorite vacation spot”

    This was our first time to the area and we LOVED IT. The condo is wonderful. It is the cleanest rental we’ve ever had. We were lucky enough to see baby sea turtles. The nest hatched and a few wondered to the parking garage. We called wild life and they collected 12! That same night we found one more and were told to release it at the beach! We rented jet skis and got to play with the dolphins. They were 1 foot from us!!! It was a wonderful wee and we will be back.
    Thank you for sharing your condo with us!

  2. Wonderful is not enough to describe this condo and the location. First if all the condo is all you could ever ask for. Everything is perfect. So much room and the views are incredible. It is such a quiet location. Owners are very easy to deal with from first contact to check out. We hope to be returning for many years.

  3. This beautiful condo is the perfect vacation spot! We have stayed for 2 years in a row and will be returning next year. Not only is the location amazing, but the accommodations are great! We have everything we need when we are there. The view is beautiful! Debbie is awesome to work with. The complex is very secure and perfect for couples or families. We are so happy we found this hidden treasure. Love, love, love it here!!!

  4. We have been coming to this particular condo since 2007. It is a beautiful condo with an amazing pool and hot tub and has a fantastic view right on the beach.! There are 2 bedrooms that work well for families or great for girls trips! The owners are very accommodating and the condo is like living at a friends home. Our last trip was recently where the weather was fantastic! They have an umbrella and chairs for the beach as well as a closet full of beach toys for the kids!! This condo feels like home away from home… Only with a much better view, and fabulous sunsets!!

  5. This year marked our 9th year in a row staying at 201 Chambre. Debbie is always a gracious host. We’ve appreciated the occasional upgrades to the unit throughout the years. The Chambre is just the perfect distance from John’s Pass. A short walk to all the John’s Pass activities but far enough away to escape the busyness as well. No crowded beach at Chambre. We really enjoy the area and our kids do as well. We hope to someday purchase a place nearby and would be happy to have that place be in the Chambre. Looking forward to our 10th year next spring.

  6. Two Weeks in Paradise! My family and I spent two glorious weeks at Chambre’ 201. There is NOTHING not to love about it! The condo was exceptionally clean and had all necessary appliances and luxuries of home; however, we WILL DEFINITELY take the views of 201 over home any day! The view was breathtaking, and the sunsets NEVER disappointed! Debbie was extremely helpful all throughout the planning of the trip as well as while we were there! We look forward to spending many more vacations at Chambre’ 201!!!
