The Maderia Beach Yacht Club Condominium complex is made up of two-story and three-story condo units surrounded by walled security with limited-gate access. The complex sets on a peninsula of the Intracoastal Waterway with four fishing piers and boat slips on the east and south sides. (You can fish off the pier just 50 feet behind our unit.)
Our condo is a ground-floor, non-smoking unit with a screened patio. The bedroom has a queen bed, and the living room has a double/full-size futon. The complex has two swimming pools, clubhouse with 2 pool tables, lockers, sauna, hot tub, exercise equipment, and shuffleboard, in addition to the amenities listed.
Ten restaurants (including two sushi) and many shops are within a 2-block walk, and a 1-mile walk down the beach (south) takes you to 'John's Pass,' a popular, open-air, boardwalk tourist area, where you find deep-sea fishing, cruises up the Intracoastal Waterway, sailing, jet ski and boat rentals, casino dinner cruises, as well as several restaurants and many shops.
