Super super clean cottage - the cleanest place we've rented! The cottage was charming and although at first I thought it was going to be too small for our family of 3, along with bringing our puppy with a crate, we managed perfectly, thanks to the well thought out layout and comfortability. The bed was too on the soft side for me since I like firmness, but that is a preference of mine and yet I slept well. We didn't use the kitchen a whole lot but to cook some quick dishes for our 6 yr old daughter, but did notice spices and oils which is a nice added touch! You've got pots and pans, silverware and all the dishes that you will need here. The utility shed outside has beach gear and charcoal and lighter fluid for the BBQ which is also very convenient. No details were missed here! We liked it so much that we extended our stay when we were advised that the next renters cancelled! Thanks to the owner for telling us.
The accommodations of the property were fantastic with a heated pool, tiki hut with charcoal BBQ, available parking, and proper landscaping lighting at night. Also access to laundry if you need to wash clothes. The neighbors staying at the other cottages were very nice and friendly and we had occasional chats with them while sitting outside. The beach was right across the street so location is also great and the sunsets were awesome to watch! And there are many restaurants around, including St Johns Pass about a 5-10 minute leisure walk away. Location was great all around! I was hesitant at first since I am pregnant and having trouble walking long distance, but everything needed was close by. We really liked Madeira Beach, it is old charming Florida! Recommend going to DeSoto Park about 20 minutes away- it is beautiful for a day adventure and pet friendly too!
We contacted the owner, Dana, on the Saturday before our Spring break week and he was very prompt and responded on same day. Although the bigger cottages were already rented, he did provide with us with descriptions of the smaller cottages available. On Sunday we decided to book it and on Monday, next day, we were in Madeira! The fastest transaction and friendliest customer service ever! He also happened to be in town and stopped by to meet us which was a nice gesture. Definitely recommend the cottages at Madeira Beach- it will be a relaxing vacation because all you need to bring is yourself!
