The Beachmaker, Condo Hotel, Madeira Beach, FL

Marriott Autograph Collection

Hello. Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center.

When most people think of Florida wildlife, they usually picture alligators. Fair enough. We have those in abundance.

But did you know that Florida also has 539 documented species of bird? You can see species here not found anywhere else in the U.S. such as snail kite, short-tailed hawk, black-hooded parakeet, mangrove cuckoo, black-whiskered vireo and the Florida scrub-jay.

With so many birds flocking to the Sunshine State, it’s not surprising that Florida has one of the largest wild bird hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the U.S.

The Seaside Seabird Sanctuary takes care of sick, injured and orphaned wild birds, releasing as many as they can back into the wild once healed. Their bird rescue statistics are impressive:

  • 10,800 calls per year to their injured bird rescue hotline
  • 3,600 rescues per year
  • 46% of sick and injured birds they treat are successfully rehabilitated
  • 1,347 rehabilitated birds released back into the wild each year

By now you’re surely wondering, what does this bird sanctuary have to do with real estate? It’s located just minutes up the road as the crow flies from today’s featured property. Read on for details.

Earn Revenue with Your Vacation Home

Because The Beachmakerwill be acondo hotel, owners must participate in a professionally-managed rental program and receive revenue when they’re not using their vacation home. They can use their unit up to 90 days per year with no blackout dates.

A convenient skybridge gives The Beachmaker guests easy access to the beach.

In addition to tourists, The Beachmaker’s target customers will include upscale visitors, wedding groups and corporate destination travelers. When complete, it will be the only high-end resort between Clearwater Beach, St. Petersburg Beach and downtown St. Petersburg.

Managed by Mainsail Management through the Marriott systems, The Beachmaker will be promoted on Marriott’s worldwide reservation system, in particular to Marriott Bonvoy and Autograph Collection members.

With a large banquet facility, The Beachmaker will welcome weddings and business group meetings.

Construction Status and Pricing

Groundbreaking on The Beachmaker is set to take place the end of 2024. Construction should be complete by the end of 2026.

The assortment of condo hotel residences includes studios and one-bedroom units, many of which have connecting units for buyers seeking larger accommodations. Individually, the units range in size from 425 sq. ft. to 850 sq. ft. They’ll be delivered fully furnished. Preconstruction prices range from the low $700,000s to the low $800,000s. Branded Marriott penthouses prices range from $3 million to $4 million.

Preconstruction prices start in the low $700,000 and go up to $4 million.

The developer is currently offering to pay all condo dues for the first year of ownership as a buyer incentive. And here’s something you don’t see every day: the developer is requiring a total of only 20% cash down prior to closing. Most developers require at least twice that amount. Furthermore, the developer’s lender source will give 85% loans, putting cash back in your pocket at the closing table!

For the Birds

At the top I mentioned the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary. It’s open for visitors, so put that on your bucket list the next time you’re on Florida’s Gulf Coast. In doing my research, here’s a little tidbit I found interesting – the amount of food the Sanctuary goes through each week!

  • 2,500 lbs. of fish
  • 140 lbs. of ground beef
  • 20,000 live mealworms
  • 6 lbs. of dried mealworms
  • 200 rats
  • 100 mice
  • 20 lbs. of apples
  • 15 lbs. of grapes
  • 25 lbs. of cracked corn
  • 25 lbs. of waterfowl feed
  • 25 lbs. of sandhill crane chow
  • 25 lbs. of dried dog food
  • 20 lbs. of dove seed

Who knew birds ate so much!

As always, thank you for taking the time to read my Property Alerts. And again, if you’ve been toying with the idea of owning a Florida vacation home on the beach, I encourage you to let that dream fly by considering The Beachmaker.

Have a nice day!
