Fantastic Beach House. Private and comfortably furnished for the whole family.

If you are searching for a spacious and private home that puts you directly on the the white, sandy beaches of Madeira, this is the place. With its unique floor plan, this house gives everyone in the group space and amenities that make it a one-of-a-kind vacation home.

The house is divided up into three private living areas, each with it's own kitchen, bathrooms, and living areas. There is a private beachfront balcony upstairs, and a large beachfront patio area downstairs. It's the perfect place for multiple families traveling together.

The two downstairs bedrooms each have a Queen size bed, and share one bathroom with an oversize bath tub. Upstairs, facing the beach, the Master Suite has an enormous four post King size bed, with its own totally renovated and spacious private bathroom with large walk in shower. On the other side of the house, the fourth bedroom features another very private bedroom with a lovely King size bed and shares a bathroom (with tub) with the fifth bedroom. The fifth bedroom is setup with two new Queen beds and is setup in a "studio" layout with a living room area and kitchen. There is an additional bathroom with shower on the upstairs floor. For extra sleeping capacity, there are three queen size pullout couches available placed through the house.

There are two full kitchens on the top floor, and a main fully equipped kitchen on the lower floor. Each of the three kitchens includes a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee-maker, and complete kitchenware. There is a new downstairs dining table with seating capacity for everyone, so big meals are not a problem.

Walk out the back door and through the patio and your feet are literally in the sand. The outdoor patio area has plenty of seating, loungers, a Gas BBQ, even a fire-pit. For more space and a little quiet time, the upstairs beach front balcony is perfect for your morning coffee and the view is just breathtaking.

For entertainment, there are flat screen TV's in every bedroom and two large 50" flat screens in both the upstairs and downstairs living rooms, DVD players, free high-speed WiFi, and free long distance and local telephone service. There are beach chairs, plenty of patio furniture, and even a good selection of beach toys for your pleasure. The house also includes a complete set of bath and beach towels, all linens and blankets, and a full complement of plates and kitchenware.

It's fully setup for the most demanding of vacationers!

Yoda house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at the Yoda house in florida. The house was gorgeous, plenty of room for all of us. No issues with anything. The house was clean and beautifully kept. The house is right on the beach which was awesome. I have nothing negative to say about our visit, we would go back most definitely. And the weather was awesome every day we were there.

Family Vacation 2017

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for our family. We traveled with our children, their spouses and the grandchildren. The house provided ample room for everyone. The beach was right at our back door which was a major plus especially with the children. The outdoor entries to the top floor presented no issues and it was good that one of the stairways was fully covered from the elements as we did have rain during our stay. Note, it would be helpful for travelers to know what to expect with regard to the stairways. We did have to contact maintenance during our stay and the issues were addressed. Overall our stay was very enjoyable and I would most likely return to Yoda Beach House. The one strong recommendations I would make is that the downstairs (main kitchen) needs a deep cleaning.

I would recommend this vacation home and itrip was good to work with throughout the entire process.

Very Disappointed.

  • 2 of 5

I gave this 2 stars because at least the location was good.

So, if you like a vacation with rodents roaming inside and out, this is the place for you.

We saw a mouse the very first night and it was a having a party all over the kitchen. I texted the management company the very next morning and an exterminator came out with rat traps in hand. Sure enough, 3 rats were caught. The traps were placed in the garage because we had little ones in the house. The exterminator did say they owner should put sweeps under the doors so no space was available for mice to enter the house. We saw a mouse in the kitchen, not a rat, but rats were in the sea grapes that lined one side of the house, according to the exterminator, thus the rats in the garage.

The furniture in the house was dated. The only access to the upstairs areas were via two outdoor staircases. I did not remember that being addressed in the online details.

The downstairs refrigerator did not have a working ice maker and the water line to the fridge leaked when activated on the front door panel.

I do not mind calling the management company for a problem, but I am on vacation, and do not expect to continually call about maintenance issues. Perhaps the management company should check out the units more often and more thoroughly.

Would not recommend Yoda House.

Owner's Response: With the sudden onset of the rains this last week, we did find that there was a pest issue. It is a very common issue with houses along the beach, especially those with ground floors and near shrubbery like Yoda House is. It has been completely and professionally taken care of, and we will continuously monitor in case of any type of reoccurrence. So sorry for any trouble for this Guest!

65 th Birthday party

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented the Yoda House on Madeira Beach. I was celebrating my 65th birthday and invited all of our family and grandchildren. We had 11 people total and this house was absolutely perfect! The photos online are extremely accurate. There are three full kitchens and plenty of room to spread out. The beds were great the linens for fresh and everything was working.

My favorite part of the house is the upstairs balcony off the master bedroom. It's the first place I went in the morning and the last place at night. We were all amazed how close the ocean is to the house. Because we had grandchildren, we didn't have to drag there's toys out very far.

This is my first time renting a home and I was quite nervous. If I could, I would go to the Yoda House every single year. It was a dream come true!

We loved our beach vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our beach vacation at the Yoda House. The pictures of the house online were just how we found it. The home was larger than our family of 9 needed but we spread out and took advantage of all the space. The layout of two floors was helpful for us because we had a toddler who needed a quiet space to sleep.

We loved being so close to the beach.

Our only suggestion was : We rented a high chair and a full size crib for our stay. I felt like those things should have been in the cost of the rent. And when we paid for a full size crib and got there and it wasn't full size. I was disappointed. Our 2 year old toddler could have climbed out of it. After having paid extra for it, that was a negative. But that was our only negative. We loved the home and the location. And I appreciated the service we got from itrips. They responded quickly to any email I sent.

Thank you for a wonderful place to stay for our Florida vacation.

Fun in the sun.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for us to have two adult children and their families. Ten people shared the house with enough private space for each person. Kids were able to nap. The proximity to the beach was perfect, as was the fire bowl. We had a wonderful week! Thank you!
