Don't want the crowded condo experience with noisy neighbors having condo parties & dealing with lugging beach supplies & groceries up multiple flights of stairs? Don't want to share a public pool with a bunch of kids peeing in it & whatever other germs they have? Don't want to be subjected to a crowded condo or hotel complex? Then this private, stand-alone three bedroom, two bath,1938 bungalow with a private combo plunge pool & spa, charming original cypress walls, & tons of amenities not offered at other properties is for you!

The bungalow is located literally just 50 feet from the white sands of Madeira Beach. So you will be waking up to the sound of waves lapping onto the shore. Be in the center of it all, but with privacy in your own home that has views of the beach & the crystal blue water of the Gulf from the living room, dining room, kitchen & a peek-a-boo view from the back 45 foot by 13 foot deck. The 1st & 2nd picture is your view of the beach as you look out the large living room widows under the elevated house that is in front of the bungalow. Please note that pictures 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 shows your view from the bungalow living room of the beach under the elevated house in front of the bungalow. The white floor area & pool in those pictures is the elevated house's private area. Your patio/deck area is 45 feet by 13 feet as shown in pictures 22-27 along with the plunge pool. Please read the entire description for more information.

***3 BEDROOMS/2 FULL BATHS***
Included in this 1,300 square foot beach house are 3 bedrooms (Bedroom #1 is a king, Bed #2 is a queen size bed for two people and Bed #3 is full sized bunk beds which can accommodate 2 people in each bed). The kitchen is open concept with a breakfast bar. As you can see from the pictures, pretty much everything was recently renovated.

***HUGE DECK WITH A PRIVATE PLUNGE POOL & SPA***
There is also a private 600 square foot deck off the back of the house with a dining table and chairs for 4 and 2 chaise lounge chairs for sun bathing or just relaxing as shown in pictures 25-27. We also have something that no other private house with beach views has that is less than $850 a night...a private plunge pool that is 16' x 8' x 50" deep that has an integrated hot tub for you to enjoy while checking out the beach views! Do you think it is gross to swim in a condo or hotel public pool with kids peeing in it and whatever else germs they have? So do we! So keep your family & vacation safe by keeping things private. This outdoor oasis is bigger than most condos! This realistically gives you 1,900 square feet a living space between indoor & outdoor! **Please note**, we ask that you respect that we have neighbors who live here year round & who live less than 10 feet away. I am sure part of the reason you are renting our property is for the privacy & peace and quiet of being in a residential neighborhood versus a noisy hotel. So if you have small children, we do ask that the kids are instructed not to constantly screaming while in the pool as a courtesy to our neighbors who live here year round (some screaming is expected and ok, just not hours on end). It is a part of the balancing act of having privacy for your vacation while respecting the full time residents. We also have a local ordinance which governs a 9 pm curfew for commercial pools. All children under 18 must be supervised by someone 18 years or older at all times in the pool area. If these pool restrictions may be a problem for your vacation, we would appreciate if you passed on our property.

***AMENITIES - PADDLE BOARD, KAYAK, CARTS, PRIVATE WASHER/DRYER, BEACH UMBRELLA, BEACH CHAIRS, PLUS MUCH MORE!***
The property also boasts a fully equipped kitchen, smart flat screen TVs, Sling streaming TV & free high speed internet. All linens and kitchen utensils are provided. A private washer & dryer are available for your use inside the bungalow unlike the condos which you have to pay $4 per wash & dry your clothes in a dingy common area laundry room. We also include a laundry detergent saving you more money & making your stay more hassle-free! One parking space is included. Ask about options if you need a 2nd. We do also include beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, boogie boards, & swim noodles for your enjoyment. Since we provide you items like beach chairs & umbrellas (most other rentals do not include the large umbrellas & beach chairs), you will save the $5 per day, per chair beach chair rental fee or the $15 per day umbrella rental fee charged on the beach! What's more is we are now including a beach cart to make getting all of your beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, coolers, toys, etc to the beach a breeze. Condos can't offer all these extras as they don't have the storage space for all these extra items. We also now are including one paddle board which normally rent for $100 per day. In addition, they are a high-end paddle board which coverts into a kayak with the kayak attachment. Kayaks also rent for roughly $60 per day. We also have a special paddle board cart so you can easily get them to the beach. So we save you tons of money in rental fees & laundry fees that can potentially cover the cost of your rental!

***LOCATION & LOCAL ACTIVITIES***
You just can't beat the location for convenience either as John's Pass is only 3 blocks away! It is within walking distance to several fine dining opportunities. Thus, you can easily make do without a car.

Historic John's Pass Village is only 3 blocks away with a host of entertainment options including; many great beach bar and grills, nightly live music, wine tasting, dolphin tours, jet ski rentals, parasailing, sunset boat tours, alligator petting exhibit, pirate ship cruise, & so much more. Dining options 3 blocks away are also plentiful such as Bubba Gump, The Friendly Fisherman, The Pirate's Den, The Rusty Anchor, Mad Beach Craft Brewing, Gators & more! Don't pass up the opportunity to take a stroll over the Madeira Beach Bridge for some great views.

***UNIQUENESS OF THE PROPERTY***
So a little more about the uniqueness of the property. It is one of the last original bungalows left on Madeira Beach from 1938. Most of the other bungalows have been torn down to make way for condos or multi-million dollar houses. The walls are pecky cypress. Pecky cypress is a rare and highly sought after type of cypress popular for the uniqueness in its amazing organic three dimensional textural character. Most people fall in love with it when they see it. These are from true old growth cypress that were cut down in the early 1900s and is estimated to be anywhere from 250 to 2,500 years old. There are still old growth cypress trees here in Florida as old as 3,500 years old!

We have taken quite a bit of time and effort to add touches to the bungalow that pay homage to the history of the bungalow. As you wander the bungalow, you will find many original pictures and advertising for Madeira Beach from 1938 (the year it was built), the 40s, 50, and 60s. We try to provide you a glimpse of what the bungalow was like back then as you are taken back in time with the advertisements for a completely equipped kitchen for $4 a week, a brand new deluxe car for $685 or a new house for $5,000. You will be able to read about the current events of 1938. Then you can start to feel yourself stepping back in time as you soak in the history. You can imagine how the previous owners used the collapsible walls to create open and closed floor plans. Therefore, it seems they were ahead of their time. So if you prefer a sterile condo, this is not the property for you. If you can appreciate the history of the bungalow with the pecky cypress walls, parquet flooring and the collapsible walls, then this is the place for you!

The kitchen comes with white shaker cabinets, pearl white quartz counter tops, mother of pearl backsplash, Restoration Hardware pendant lighting, capiz shell dining room chandelier, converted ship port holes for the main bathroom medicine cabinet, and tons of cool decor for the kids in the bunk bed room such as antique underwater demolition signage, sharks, blow fish, and so much more. You will be entertained for hours just checking out all the unique items in the house.

***PLEASE READ***
Out of respect for our neighbors and to keep the bungalow in good condition, we do not allow large parties, rentals to more than 8 people, pets or smoking in the house. We do ask that you respect the maximum 8 people limit during your stay. If you have more people, you will be asked to vacate & there will be no refund. We mention this as we have had people rent the property that had 8 guests and then they had an extra car load or two of their friends over the entire stay sleeping on the floor, blow-up mattresses & on the outdoor lounge chairs. The house just can't take the wear & tear of more than 8 people so we appreciate if you would respect that when you consider renting.

So there is no confusion, the white floor patio area that you see while looking at the beach from the living room in pictures 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 is under the elevated house (which we mention above) & is the private area for the elevated house owner (which is me), but you still have the wonderful view of the beach from inside the bungalow. We point this out to avoid any confusion as we need our private space too. We do not offer grilling due to fire hazard and liability issues. We take the time to point all of these items out so we can set proper expectations & so you can have a wonderful vacation!! We do have 3 video and audio recording devices. One on the front deck pointed toward the street, one pointed toward the parking area, and one of the side of the garage. This is because of the public beach access out front and if there was to be an incident, we can capture it. There are no cameras inside the property.
