You’ll like this place

#506 is a great end unit on the top floor. It was clean with a tropical decor. Unit was very well stocked with cooking & dinner ware. I had everything I needed, which is saying something since I actually cook quite a bit on vacation. They also supplied dish soap, dishwasher tabs & even laundry soap, which was a definite plus. Management is friendly and responsive. We loved chilling on the balcony, walking on the beach, and It’s close enough that you can walk to John’s Pass. I have zero complaints and would happily stay here again.

Most everything exceeded our expectations and beyond. The grounds were very clean and VERY well-maintained. The condo was probably the cleanest places we've ever stayed. The paper towels, dish soap, etc were very much appreciated and unexpected! It was our first time visiting the area and were blown away with how friendly everyone was and how well-kept the beach, etc were. Just amazing.

Our stay was amazing as always!

We have been spending our vacation at the Collwood every summer for over 12 years now and because of Covid, this is our first time back in 3 summers and it was just as great as it's always been. The condo's are all beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need. The pool and grounds are always kept clean and tidy. John and Mary are so very helpful and if you ever need anything, they get on it immediately.

Our favorite vacation spot

This was our family's 3rd stay at Collwood. I lucked out, and was able to reserve the beautiful #506, overlooking the Gulf. The decor was so nice, the beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were updated and incredibly pretty. We were very happy with our condo! The grounds at Collwood are just perfect for families. My kids always enjoy the games available under the building. The pool and whole pool area is so clean, with plenty of spots to lounge, and tons of toys to keep the kids busy. We love that there is a trunk full of beach toys! My kids spent hours on the gorgeous beach building sand castles. We also appreciate that there are several chairs and lounges available for guests on the boardwalk and at the top of the beach. This has become a summer home away from home, and Mary & John are the best on site managers. They're both so friendly, kind, helpful, and make sure guests have all they need! We are already planning our trip down for the Summer of '23 and we can't wait! -Shelley Mokas & family

Beautiful Collwood Condo 506

We have returned from a week stay at Collwood Condo 506, located right in the Gulf of Mexico. This condo is very well appointed, the kitchen is supplied with everything for preparing meals and serving meals, the bed linens and towels were superior and towels were also provided for the pool/beach. Great views were enjoyed not only from the balcony but the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. This complex is well run, very clean, organized check in and check out. Chairs available for beach use as well as sand toys for the children. Collwood ensures you want to come back!!

We found Collwood 8 years ago after a very stressful time in our life. It has become a second home and a favorite place for vacations and a retreat. We have been there 7 times and will continue to visit a often as we can. The Condos are amazing and the managers are wonderful. Can't wait for our next trip.

Girl Trip

We really enjoyed our week at Collwood. The condo complex was so well maintained and every one was so friendly and helpful. The key fob for entering the complex was wonderful. The fact that you had lounge chairs out by the beach was also great. The location is perfect! We did not rent a car, had groceries delivered and easy walk to eating and shopping The condo we rented was also well stocked and very nice and clean. We hope to stay at Collwood again. Thanks for a great week.

This was my fourth year coming to Collwood for a week. For us, it’s a week enjoying a slice of heaven. We get lots of relaxation, beautiful sunsets, seashell finding, and falling asleep listening to the waves as they come up on the sand.

The staff and Collwood Condo's was so helpful and friendly. They were always available for any concerns or questions. The condo was roomy, comfortable and clean. We had no complaints. We had 4 couples in Condo 505 and 506, you usually have someone complain but we all were extremely happy with our stay. Will definitely book here next time we are in the area.

35th Anniversary

To celebrate our 35th anniversary (and escape the Michigan winter for a week) we decided to visit Madeira Beach and stay at Collwood. We had a wonderful time, the condo was clean and the view from the balcony was AMAZING! John and Mary were very helpful and we appreciated having them on-site. We will definitely be back (and hopefully BEFORE our 40th)!

Great condo

The Collwood condos were a great choice. Plenty of room for 4 adt/1 chd. Both bdrms/ bathrms were clean and plenty of storage space. Needed the heated pool as weather was not as warm as we would have liked. Grates on grills were spotless. Appreciated the dunes on beach in front of condos as they were a good wind break. Enjoyed the close proximity to John's Pass as we never had to drive to get there. Besides the less than desired weather situation we had a great time although much too short.

Great Getaway from Midwest Winter Cold

Our family stayed in Collwood, Unit 506. We arrived to a goody bag of homemade cookies, candies and a lovely ornament with sand and shells inside! What a fun Christmas treat. Our unit was very clean, and kitchen was very well equipped with quality pots and pans. The star of the show was the views of the Gulf from the large patio doors. The whole complex is very quiet and other guests were cheerful and polite. The heated pool was very nice, and we appreciated the elevator since we where on the top floor. Medeira Beach is very clean, and the sand is white and so soft! We will fondly remember our time at Medeira Beach every year when we hang up the ornament we received!

Great location

The condo was well equipped and the location was great! Check in and check out was a breeze and Mary & John were delightful to work with. One recommendation, the sliding door from the living room out to the balcony was very difficult to slide open. And the blinds on the balcony were not operable with provided tool. Otherwise the stay was great!

Beach Week in 506

I would give our stay 5/5 stars. It is our second time staying at Collwood and enjoyed it just as much as the first time! We love the outdoor amenities that allowed us to have a great time on the beach and in the pool as well as allowing us to still enjoy the outdoors when the afternoon storms rolled in. Our condo was fully equipped and clean. The only complaint that I would have is that the towel rack was loose in the master bath and The bed was a little too firm for me, but those are things that did not really affect our fun! We’ll be back!! Thanks Mary and John!
