About Russell and Sandra Francis

Married couple with children residing in Upstate New York, but love traveling to Florida for vacation.

Russell and Sandra Francis purchased this condo in 2015

Why Russell and Sandra Francis chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Looked for 2 years for just the right property with beautiful views, sandy white beaches, directly on the beach with little walk. We found it in this condo property.

What makes this condo unique

John's Pass Village and Boardwalk with food, shopping and entertainment. Spectacular sunset views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed week of 2/27/16.....Great vacation. We loved the condo, the property amenities were great, and location to John's Pass was really great. Thanks again for everything. And by the way, a big thank you for the tasty edible on Friday morning! Great way to start our day.

When I first saw Villa Madiera, I thought "oh, no". Granted, from the outside it's not much to look at. But then I saw the unit itself and it is fantastic! Newly decorated with reclining sofa, 3 tvs, beautiful granite counters and very, very clean. The owners have gone out of their way to accommodate every need. Condo is right on the wide beach that affords gorgeous sunsets. A nice quiet area (some noise from building next door) with some excellent restaurants: Dockside Dave's and Boardwalk Grill. Only downside was the pool wasn't heated. All in all, a great rental. Hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Alice Thank you for the kind review. We did call the Condo Association as soon as we heard there were issues with the pool being heated. We were advised that it is heated, but must not be warm enough for the time of year. So we are addressing that with the Association. Hope you will return another year to vacation with us.

Worked perfectly for our trip. Loved the convenience and proximity to beach and necessities. Bed in Master - super comfortable. Everything you need in the kitchen. Owners were responsive and easy to work with.

Beautiful but boring

  • 3 of 5

I would just like to start by saying that Sandra and Russell were great at accommodating me and my family in every way. Madeira Beach is very nice but not much to do there. The boardwalk which is not far away was nice but restaurants were very old and run down. I also wish there was many places to walk to. It's a very quiet laid-back area with restaurants closing at 9 o'clock. The only thing that upset me the most with this condo was the retractable screen on the balcony did not open at all. In the photo it shows it opened. I don't know why they screwed this shut but you cannot take pictures or videos from the balcony at all. You also get tired of looking through that screen all day long. Also the shower pressure in the master bedroom was horrible. The camera mounted outside at the front door was a little creepy. I know this is beyond the owners control but the building was very old. I felt for the price that goes for this condo throughout the year is way too expensive. If you're looking for some more entertainment than go to Clearwater beach which is only 30 minute drive from Madeira . I almost forgot that the parking space that' assigned to the condo is not under the building. So when you get those Florida rains it will be an inconvenience. The washer and dryer was great to have but The third bedroom should not have bunk beds because everyone does not have kids. Enjoy this beautiful beach

Owner's Response: Sorry Pamela that Madeira Beach is not an area that was right for you. It is a family orientated, more laid back beach location. We have always found the near by restaurant to have good food and be open past 9pm. As for the screen on the balcony window, it has always been an opening window but when work was being done on the exterior of the building the Condo Association did close the window. We have since been there and have re-opened the window to have a working screen. Sandra and Russell

Excellent views of the ocean, condo was nicely set up

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great vacation using this condo. The beach access was very close. The pool was nice and clean. The condo was set up very well. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. We loved having access to beach chairs and floats. So much easier than bringing them ourselves. We enjoyed the candy kitchen across the street and ate ice cream from there every night. The sandbar provided my grandsons wonderful nature lessons with finding star fish, conche shells and sand dollars. We loved watching beautiful sunsets and Dolphins playing in the waters. It's a perfect place to relax and enjoy life.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time vacationing here! Russell & Sandra Francis have a very nice condo that is well maintained and accurately represented in their listing. They are a class act and it is apparent from the moment you arrive that they want you to be comfortable in their condo. There was a minor issue with one of the beds, but both Russell & Sandra and their staff were very responsive and kind in resolving it! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everything you may need is there--dishes, towels, starter quantities of dish soap, toilet paper, etc... You do have to purchase your own if you're going to be there more then a couple days, but that is standard everywhere. They even have a closet full of beach toys, chairs, and umbrella to make your vacation even better. The condo sits directly on the beach, with a great view of the Gulf. Just walk out the back door and you're on the beach. The building also has a pool if that's what you want to do. Right across the street is the Candy Kitchen--a candy/ice cream shop that is packed with a line down the street every single night. The thing we enjoy about Madeira Beach (this was our 2nd year) is that it's not overly touristy. There is John's Pass, with some souvenir shops, restaurants, water sports, etc... but it's not overbearing. The beach in front of the building is not crowded, which was the best part. Families can enjoy the beach without there being a ton of people there. The waters are mostly calm, which is great for young kids. I highly recommend renting this unit. We had a wonderful experience and hope to be able to return next summer!

Wonderful Condo and beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just like the pictures. Nice and clean. Beds we comfortable as was the couch. Love the view! The beach was nice, not crowded at all! We stayed the first week of August.

Very appreciative of the pack n play, stroller, and booster seat, beach chairs, beach toys, boogie board, and umbrella! These things were so nice to have especially with a 7 yr old and 1 yr old!

Candy kitchen was very yummy!

On a side not we were very disappointed in St. John's Pass. We're expecting more. :(
