My family and I had a wonderful time! We loved everything about it! It was clean and well maintained! The owners are wonderful, the microwave broke and they purchased a new one and brought it to the cottage! We will be back next 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.

I really enjoyed my week long stay at this lovely beachfront home. It was neat, clean, and just decorated adorable! Everything you needed was there plus the location was great! Walking distance to John's Pass Boardwalk restaurants, bars, stores - couldn't be happier. Also close to St. Pete's beach and other areas too. Patricia the owner was very nice and helpful with suggestions. I will miss the quiet, relaxing week on the beach. Don't miss Ricky T's for the best breakfast and V.I.P. for the Best Mexican wet burrito ever!! Both in Treasure Island just over the bridge! This home was very cozy and I felt like a new person when I left!

My husband, our two small dogs and our best friends rented the downstairs property for one week. I must say that Pat, her husband and daughter are some of the nicest people we have ever met! The property is so very awesome and looks identical to the photos shown! We were able to walk in, put our luggage down, and head for John's Pass on foot! We had such a great time at John's Pass - found the food, entertainment and shops well above average!! Our two little girls (maltese and Pom-a-poo) were photographed more than the dolphins!! They were well behaved girls riding in their stroller (not a bit spoiled)!! My best friend and I were able to walk on the beach every morning when we awoke. We grilled out when we didn't dine at John's Pass. The home is stocked with everything you need. The front porch facing the beach, was by far our favorite spot! My husband sang and played his guitar for us. We were all extremely pleased when we felt the great water pressure when showering (better than mine at home). The towels were plush and they had my husbands favorite soap there! The entire place is very clean, updated and well kept. I want to thank Pat for EVERYTHING and can't wait to go back! My only negative comment is, "I wish we could have stayed a lot longer!"
