Cottages are very cute and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Pool is very clean and the beach is only a block away. the only down side is the beds are air matt that I did not care for. everyone is friendly.

Hi there Sheila,

I am glad you had an opportunity to relax during your stay and take advantage of the nearby beach and Gulf surf :)

But of course everyone is friendly.... because we Only Pick the Best guests :) just like we did you :)

The beds are a dual zone sleep number type bed that usually are quite comfortable for the majority of guests as they control the firmness to suit their sleeping patterns; the bonus is that if two people are sharing a bed each side can be different with one soft and the other firm :)

Thank you for being our guest and writing this review for future guests as everyone's comments continue to build the confidence and trust that our places are a good, clean choice for value: aside from individual preferences. :) Take care.

Sunny regards,
Mr. Dana

Impeccable cottages..Impeccable grounds..Impeccable pool..Fully equipped kitchen..Fully equipped linens..Fully equipped laundry room

THE RITZ CARLTON CAN LEARN ABOUT GUEST ACCOMMODATIONS FROM DANA, JANET AND JIM.

Got the point now?!

Our cottage was beyond clean. The grounds were spotless. Since Dana allows dogs, there we're no signs of any dogs. Burned out grass, dog droppings or even scratched walls in our cottage, showed no signs of dog wear and tear at The Cottages of Madeira Beach. Our dog had recently tore her ACL was still recuperating. No slippery floors the vet told us and Dana's cottages has laminate flooring. Dana, Janet and Jim (without asking) laid down numerous area rugs so "Lola" wouldn't reinjure her torn ACL. UNBELIEVABLE ACCOMMODATION AND FORETHOUGHT ON THEIR BEHALF. TRUE DOG LOVERS!!!!

Skip the restaurants, go to the grocery store and utilize the two grills on the property. Dana has a covered grass patio area, with all the seating you want, to enjoy your grilled and smoked grouper, shrimp and steak. Your bathing suit, your beer, and your appetite is all you need. I talked to Dana and Jim for a few hours while soaking up the Florida "vibe" under this beautiful Tiki hut setting.

Stop looking for any other place along the Gulf beaches of St. Pete/Clearwater Beaches.
THIS IS IT!!!!!! AND THE COTTAGES ARE SO QUIET!

New refrigerators, quiet/cold air conditioning, and continuous upgrading the property for your comfort, is the mindset of Dana, Janet and Jim. Their primary focus is YOU.

Well well well..... its Steve "The Body" Calafato :)

Thank you very much for having the confidence in us during our email and phone call booking process to finally choose our place as your First Vacation experience in ten years! I truly understand business owners like you because I also had my own business for many years and finally had to "take a break".
So for Lola, your sweet Lab doggie, we hope all the area rugs were "festive" enough to make your vacation almost seem like you were having Christmas :)
The cars look beautiful by the way because you certainly "pay attention to "detail" and that's why your Resurrection Auto business ( car-detailing-cleveland.com ) is successful for all these years. Perhaps it is also because Anna keeps you focused IDK :)
Anyway it sure was nice getting to know you three and wishing you great health and success in your future endeavours.
Sunny regards,
Dana

What a great location! My wife and two young girls stayed at The Cottages and absolutely loved our stay. Our Cottage was spacious, with two large bedrooms, one large living room area and adjacent kitchen; all fully equipped. The Wi-hi was excellent also, which kept the kids happy.
The owners Janet and Dana would not have been more helpful. For example on our arrival, following a heavy storm the night before, the pool required cleaning due to falling branches etc. Dana replied to my email within minutes, and had the pool immediately!

Thanks to you as well for helping us to keep our property suitable during your stay... I am sure your Pool Boy skills have improved :) Stay well and if you are planning to be in the area again please inquire for availability; you were great guests!

We stayed the week of August 7, 2016 and the cottage (#3) was squeaky clean, amazingly comfortable and beautifully relaxing feeling. This is the first time we went on vacation with the doggies - 3 of them - and they also were amazingly relaxed, comfortable and happy. We are very comfortable and very satisfied with The Cottages at Madeira Beach and the surrounding area. Definitely will come back.

Well hello there V & A,

Thank you for your comments and sharing your experiences of Serenity for both you and your dogs :) Yes our place does aim to provide an atmosphere to "Rest, Relax, and Rejuvenate" because Life is busy and stressful. Someday we hope to bring our three dogs but it is a long drive from NS Canada and the plane is not an option for one of them.

Take care and thank you for choosing our property to share with the dogs so they too had a vacation from every day life :)

Rented 2 cottages at this little piece of Paradise! Cottages are very, very, very comfortable, well stocked and the pictures are accurate. The service that you get from Dana and Janet is extraordinary! Location is excellent! 5 teenagers with us and not once did we hear "I'm BORED"! An added bonus is for pet owners - this wonderful oasis is pet friendly! We are locals and we will return!

Thank you very much "homegirls" :) for your kind words.

We are glad that you found our place suitable and that Madeira Beach did not disappoint the kids :) I am sure our pool was a nice hit as well when not at the beach or to give the parents a break :)

We strive to ensure that every guest has the best vacation experience and will try to accommodate requests as soon as we are able; Rosi is a great asset and she takes a lot of Pride in working hard to make the cottages clean and cozy.

Thank you for choosing our location and coming to Madeira Beach. See you again :)
