The Cottages at Madeira Beach
Reviewed 11 June 2015

The Cottages at Madeira Beach are simply AWESOME! The location is perfect for a fun walk to John's Pass and a walk away from the peace of the beach. We were welcomed by Dana (owner) who was such a friendly welcoming man! I'd forgot my beach chairs and umbrella, but no need to worry everything you need is there! They also allowed us to bring our puppy Roger- and he was soo loved and welcomed by Dana as well as the locals. Would def stay here again! Thanks Janet and Dana for having such a wonderful yet affordable place!!!!

Room Tip: Try the Candy Kitchen- it's within walking distance and a step back in time!

Wow i'm sure on a roll tonight getting many responses done like a responsible owner and respectful social communicator :) Thanks for the AWESOME compliments about our place, surrounding area, and lil' ole me !! You definitely said it right when you say the Beach is Peace... almost heavenly most days. I remember Roger boy.... one of the best and more original human names for a puppy I thought! Herree Roger, come boy whoot whoot whoot (hehehe). He was such a friendly and playful boy. Yes and the use of our chairs and umbrellies and other stuff in the shared shed was FREE, nada, no cost to you!!! all the things that we like to stock up on so our guests don't have to waste money buying "stuff" that they cant even take home. Anyway im rambling, so thanks for choosing our cottages and hope you are able to come back to explore the Gulf Coast. Sunny regards

I just spent nine days with my dog at the cottages at Madeira Beach. It was a perfect little slice of paradise! The cottage we stayed in was spotless, comfortable and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was right there. The pool was sparkling clean, and the beach was just a 5-minute walk away, yet the cottages are away from the traffic and noise of the beach. John's Pass is just a short walk away and offers an abundance of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Perfect place to relax and unwind!

Yes DOGS also tell their Masters where to stay. They say... ruff, ruff, ruff which means Hey check out Janet and Dana's Cottages in Madeira Beach!! Dogs really are very smart :) We even have a front lawn where the dogs like to go an socialize and do their business of the day.. sometimes two, three, or four times even :) We love to make our cottages different from one another so that the next stay your visit may take you to a cottage with a different appeal.; yet as you say we have everything for amenities that we could think of.. even the Kitchen Sink (hahaha). So glad your stay was rrrrunderful. Sunny regards

My daughter and I stayed here this past week. It was perfect for us, close to the beach, close to Johns Pass. The trolley is the way to go if you don't want the expense of a rental car. The cottages were clean, the pool was warm, the neighbors were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again. I can't say enough about The Cottages at Madeira Beach. I absolutely love this place!

Well thank you very much for taking the time to tell the World about our quaint little piece of paradise!! like the description :) We are so glad your stay was handy to the many things that can make it easy to explore without having a car; and if you do it is only a very very short drive !! Oh yes a WARM pool is the Next best thing to hot chocolate on a chilly day.... I personally don't like to get into cold water as it does funny things to the body :) like hypothermia... We ALWAYS have the Best Neighbours at our Cottages as Janet Hand Picks them (sort of like apples ) so that our guests have the bestest vacation experience :) We love that you chose our place too. Sunny regards

My husband and I stayed for a week at Cottages at Madeira Beach and totally enjoyed ourselves. The cottage was very clean and cute and had everything we needed. The grill was clean and the pool was heated. And very convenient to St. John's Pass and the beach is just steps away. We had a great time!

Room Tip: The cottages in the back seem quieter. That's what we rented.

OK,, last response seen in 2015, or for the "positive thinkers" the First response of the year :) (I love my dry humor). I see that you were able to book one week. That sure was lucky as most guests book for longer periods especially march. That Rosie... there she goes even cleaning the Grill... she certainly is a fantastic woman! Thank you for taking the time to mention all of these helpful comments to future guests who may be considering our place. We love people, and their pets so make sure you book well in advance for the coming year if you plan to come to our area again as the Barrier Island gets booked up fast. Sunny regards

We had a wonderful extended weekend. This place was perfect our our family. Very close to shopping and the beach. I accidentally came across it on Google maps while searching for a place for an extended weekend for the family. The cottages are extremely clean it was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Janet was a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be back next year.
