About Property Manager
Thank you for your interest in our vacation home for your upcoming holiday! Before you book, we would like to share what our vacation rental is all about. We appreciate that all vacation rentals are different, which makes it a unique option when traveling, and we feel it’s nice for our guests to know what type of vacation rental you are selecting for your vacation, and who you are renting from. Dan and I live in a suburb near Toronto, Ontario and fell in love with the charm and personal touches of Gulf Gardens when we traveled to Madeira Beach for the first time in 2010. Less than a year later, we purchased unit #5 as our own home-away-from-home! There are approximately 20 cottages (condos) that make up Gulf Gardens Resort. Each cottage is privately owned by different owners from around the United States and Canada.
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Property Manager chose Madeira Beach
As we are still a young(ish) family with a teenage daughter and full-time jobs in Canada, our lives do not allow us to spend as much time at our beach house as we hope to be able to do in the future; that is where you come along! Fortunately, there are services now that allow us to share our home-away-from-home with other vacationers looking for a unique vacation experience. We have been renting our property to vacationers and snowbirds since 2011, and knowing that our cottage has contributed to so many memories over the years is very special to us. One of my favourite things to do when we arrive is to check the cottage journal and read your stories and recommendations on things to do and places to eat! We have been very grateful to have had great guests over the years who are very respectful that they are renting someone else’s home, and have treated our cottage with the same care they would their own. Many of our guests return year-over-year and feel that our cottage is their second home as well. Having shared that we do not live locally, we still want you to know that you are in good hands while you are a guest, and will not be left unassisted during your stay. Gulf Gardens is fortunate to have great property managers who live onsite and are available daily to all guests (owners and renters). Imre manages the office, greets our guests and gets them checked in and out, and is available for questions and assistance during your stay. You will often see Imre’s wife, Maria, tending to the gardens or painting murals and artwork around the property. Both are warm and lovely and you will feel like family by the end of your stay!
What makes this Condo unique
Madeira Beach is a great spot to make lasting memories whether you’re traveling alone, with your spouse, or with your family. We hope our cottage contributes to the great memories you make during your stay! –Kelly & Dan

Directly across the street from the beach!
Such a great one bedroom cottage. The sofa bed was also comfy. The pool was very nice and a great addition to our beach vacation. We were right across the street from the beach. It was very convenient to go back and forth if needed. The location was perfect. Just a few minutes from Johns Pass with fun shopping and eating. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast when we ate inside. Definitely a great place to stay and save money too. Thank you Kelly
Perfect for a small family!
This was our first vacation with our little one and the cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, cozy, and in a wonderful location. The beach was literally a 5 minute walk from the cottage which made it easy to go for a few minutes or an extended period of time. The pool was also great and quiet most of the time we were there. Only negative was it is very close to a very busy road but it’s easy to overlook when taking into consideration all of the positives!! We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Kelly, for your great guest service and letting us use your “home” for the week!!
Great cottage and an even better location
My girlfriend and I just spent the last week of May 2019 at this cottage. We were so happy we booked this place. It’s very clean , the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you possibly could need. It would be a little tight with 4 adults but it was perfect for just the two of us.
It’s literally a 1 minute walk and your on the beach. The beach access is directly across the street and the beach is phenomenal. The white sand and water were gorgeous. We saw dolphins pretty much every day during our early morning walks on the beach. The water is very calm every Day and comfortablely warm. . The restaurants in the area were terrific. There’s nothing this area doesn’t have. We did a deep sea fishing trip ,a beautiful sunset cruise on a sailboat only 10 minutes away. rented a wave runner 5 minutes down the street from Johns pass which is great area of restaurants, boats , shops and all sorts of activities and places to sit , have lunch or a few drinks and watch boats go by in and out of the inlet.
The owners of this cottage were so easy to deal with and everything went as smooth as possible. . I highly recommend this cottage for a great vacation in the Madeira beach , Clearwater, St. Petersburg area of Florida.
I would rent this place again in a second. There’s also a nice pool here but we didn’t even use it , we enjoyed the beach every day It was also a very quiet , peaceful place. I can’t wait to go back.

The property was everything we could want for a very relaxing vacation. It was very well equipped and comfortable. We would definitely recommend it.
Wonderful place. Very clean with everything you would need. Pool area is nice. Lots of flowers and shrubs. The gazebo is great and the grills are clean and work good. It is very convenient having beach access across the street as you have to pay in the public lots. Maria is a nice lady and will make sure your place is clean along with anything you may need. Don’t forget johns pass. Lots of shops and restaurants. This is a great place to unwind. You won’t be sorry. Thanks kelly for sharing your home with us.
Wonderful. Convenient location.
Property very clean and centrally located. Excellent accomodations and amenities. Heated pool. Could'nt ask for anything more. Will be back next year.
