Cozy cottage with a great view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cottage on 2nd floor. The view was great, and so close to the beach! It was also within walking distance of John's Pass which was super convenient for shopping and eating! The owners were great to work with, the cottage was clean, and they kept in contact regularly.... Answered any questions we had & gave recommendations. We would love to stay here again. Thank you!! Happy New Year!

Perfect holiday cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i rented the upstairs part of the cottage for a week in May, and we will absolutely be renting it again next year! Perfect location to Johns Pass and directly on the beach. The place was very clean and cozy and had everything we would need for our stay. Stephanie is an absolutely wonderful owner! We have been visiting Maderia Beach for years and have never met an owner in person before and she is by far the most polite and happy person we have ever met! I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone :)

Let me start by saying that patricia is very easy and nice to work with. I booked a week for me and my family and it was everything we expected plus more. Location could not get any better. Nice quiet street only a block walk to johns pass. When we arrived everything was clean and nice. It felt like home away from home the minute we walked in the door. I have 2 days left and I wish we would have booked two weeks. Me and my family are now going to be relocating to St. Petersburg in 2017. Don't pass this rental by. If it's available book it! You will not be disappointed.

Three Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife, college son, and me stayed at the John's Pass Cottage for three weeks. It was wonderful. The property was right on the beach. It was equipped with everything a vacationer would need including a washer and dryer. The property is located near all the night life; but is on a very quiet road. The site pictures do not do justice. The cottage has much more room than appears. Pat the property owner is very helpful. She truly wants your vacation to be perfect.
