About John and Wynn Kenyon
Both John and I are Florida natives. I was born in Clearwater and John in Jacksonville. Both of us have lived our entire lives in Florida.
John and Wynn Kenyon purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why John and Wynn Kenyon chose Saint Petersburg
The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood with the beautiful beach across the street. It gives you a home away from home feel. We purchased the cottages from our dear friends that we have known for many years. We fell in love with the old Florida style that is so hard to find anymore with the boom of condos.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are two cottages on the same property. Along with the two bedroom cottage, we have a one bedroom cottage. Homeaway # 4555830 It is nice to rent both if you have the occasion to. Both have the old Florida charm with the comforts of home. Check out our website www.charming-cottage.com

My husband and I had a great stay at this property! It was just the right size for the two of us, and the location was just great. A cross the street to our daily beach walk, close enough to shopping, go to a dinner (maybe 10 mins total to dt?), less than 15 minutes to restaurants.The home was quiet and well stocked, Everything else, from the mixing bowls to the coffee maker! Comfy bed, nice bath tub and out side shower. Wynn were great hosts and very responsive to any questions/request we had....we stayed for a one week and enjoyed every minute of it!
Charming and relaxing! Best beach vacation!
My family and I had the pleasure of staying in this amazing Madeira beach home for a week. The house/cottage is decorated so cute on the outside! Very laid back beach atmosphere inside and out! One of my many favorite things about the home was actually the hammock outside, nice touch! Throughout the entire week that we stayed, it was almost always occupied! It was so relaxing of the morning and evening time laying there with the cool breeze on your face, it was wonderful. The inside of the home was decorated so nicely as well. Living room furniture was very comfortable! Nice seating area for several people in the dining room, for eating dinner, playing cards, etc,. The kitchen was well equipped with anything we needed. Plenty of dishes for us. I loved that there was a washer & dryer, which I used quite a bit so I didn’t have to take home dirty clothes/beach towels. Wynn provided us with plenty of bath towels and beach towels. The bedrooms were great as well. I slept in the bed in each of the 2 rooms and both were very comfortable! Plenty of pillows also! Nice floor length mirror all of us girls used often. They put a nice touch on the backyard area as well! Very well maintained! There is a grill, we didn’t use though. There is a nice outside shower that we loved! Nice being able to get that sand off of you after a long day at the beach. Nice sitting area for dinner or just conversation. The neighborhood was very nice that the home is located in. We felt very safe and the neighbors all seemed very friendly. People out walking the neighborhood and their dogs a lot. The location to the beach was so great!! A very short walk! Maybe two minutes. Leads you straight to a boardwalk right to Madeira Beach! It was fantastic!!! Also, Johns Pass is only a short walk away as well, 3 to 4 blocks, so much better than driving over and having to find a place to park. I love that place, so many unique shops, typical beach shops, and tons of places to eat! I loved everything about our trip, we will absolutely try to book this property again next time we visit! Wynn checked in on me after arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and to also give her number in case we had any questions. It was a wonderful experience all around. Thanks for having us Wynn :)
We had a wonderful time at the Charming Cottage by the Sea. It was cozy and comfortable, well equipped, and in a great location. The back yard was relaxing. especially with the fabulous February weather. Wynn was a gracious host and we look forward to a return visit.
Great little cottage
Such a nice place to stay and relax. Close to so many things to do and see. Fantastic beach a short walk away. So many restaurants that we ate someplace different every time. The best part was that our German shepherd was welcomed by the owners.
Very clean. Great location. The owner was very attentive to anything or any questions that we have.
Our family enjoyed our stay at the Charming Cottage by the beach. The location was fantastic. The owner was very attentive to our needs and answered any questions right away. Would not hesitate to stay here again. The backyard patio was great to hang out in and BBQ
Exactly as described, a Charming Cottage indeed!
We just enjoyed a very relaxing holiday week at the Charming Cottage with our older children and family pup, Maggie Mae. This was our first opportunity to bring the Maggie along on holiday and I’m not sure we will ever go on holiday without her again. This cottage is the most quaint and comfortable place we’ve stayed at through VRBO in awhile. While it is not beachfront, the quiet neighborhood and proximity to almost everything makes up for it. Just a couple minutes walk from the beach and about five minutes walk from St. John’s Pass. Wynn doesn’t miss a single detail- thank you for having us!
