The Cottages at Madeira Beach
Reviewed 14 July 2017

We chose this place mainly because it was pet friendly and close to the beach. It is very clean, no bugs seen and for a pet friendly place, there was no signs of pet hair etc which is very important to me since I have dog and cat allergies. I do, despite my allergies, have a small dog and was able to bring her along. She loved it too! We enjoyed the nice warm pool with spa jets, which felt great after a long day. The beach is across the street and very clean and not overly crowded. My husband even saw a manatee swim by. We arrived on July 4th, so we did the fireworks cruise on the pirate ship out of John's Pass. That was awesome watching all the fireworks from the water and my 5yr old grand-daughter couldn't believe she was able to go on a pirate ship! Everything you could need is provided from dishes to beach wagon and gear. We stayed in the Octopus cottage and at first I thought we'd never fit all the unnecessary stuff we brought but everything fit just fine and there was enough room for 2 adults, 1 child and 1 dog. We also enjoyed being within 5min walk to the boardwalk at John's Pass. Every night we walked over and ate some candy or ice cream. Definitely will come back here again!

We've been back two years in a row and are grateful we will be back in 2018. Love the place, the owners and our fellow guests. Clean, reasonably priced, a two minute walk to the most beautiful beach and sunsets and can also walk to dozens of bars snd restaurants. It's small and intimate and lovely. It is like coming home every year.

Hi there Renee,

Thanks for posting your experience and thoughts about our property for other guests that have also stayed or have an interest in staying at our property for a future vacation or business trip. I agree that the property lends the opportunity to meet other guests from different parts of the world and even privacy when required :)
I too enjoy the beach and the fantastic sunsets... nothing like here in Nova Scotia as its usually chilly watching them; quite different from the Madeira Beach in Florida :)

Take care and will see you in 2018!!
Dana & Janet

This place was ideal for two of us. It was a great getaway and we were able to walk to just about anything we needed. I can't thank Dana enough for the wonderful place to stay (Manatee). It was clean and enjoyable and such a memorable experience. We will definitely stay again in the future. Thanks so much. Andy and Nancy B., South Bend, IN

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!

WOW Di you sure have a lot of wonderful things to say.
Thank you for your kind words and abundant information that is truly beneficial to future potential guests and that of the detailed service we are striving to achieve !!
We are pleased that we were able to provide a last minute vacation accommodation for your family and that Cottage 2, The Seahorse, was suitable; even for Dazzle at times in his crate :)
Wishing you and your family a wonderful summer and come back and visit us again someday; we love to have nice guests like yourselves. :)
A special hello to your daughter that I remembered her lovely gem stones and rocks that she had in her collection :) they are also a favourite of mine and my youngest daughter too:)
Sunny regards,
Dana & Janet

Lovely, beautiful and relaxing. We stayed 4 nights. Our Cottage ( # 7) Was spacious, 2 bed. Fully equipped kitchen, lines. The beach was less than 5-minutes walk away.
My sister fell in love with the retro microwave. :) My puppy was happy and comfortable, I love the pool, I love the Grill spot, I love the beauty of the place, the tranquility. Madeira Beach is an awesome place. oh! don't forget the John's Pass Boardwalk.
Thank you Dana. You are A+.

Happy St Patricks Day Francina :) Sorry for the delayed response but thank you for contributing to our unbiased reviews of our property and your kind words!!
Glad we were able to help you during the hurricane that was coming your way and that your husband and others were safe during the storm. :) Yes Madeira Beach is a lovely area to visit and we hope to see you all again some day when you need to take a real staycation :)

Take care,
