I have owned several vacation resorts over the years, from Cape Cod to Florida. I have always appreciated water and have tried to make what I love about the water and a particular place available to the occasional traveler who might enjoy the area but can't live here.
Kathy Behrmann purchased this cottage in 2000
I drove by this property by boat and saw them placing a For Sale sign on this cute, quaint property -- a picturesque snap-shot of old Florida. With 180 feet along the waterfront and the cottage nestled among the trees, I was smitten. I bought the property that day!
Terrific location in a part of Florida that is not as 'developed' as numerous parts of Florida. Madeira Beach is a unique community in that it is a mix of locals and visitors and is not over-taken with runaway development. For the people who appreciate 'Old Florida' -- what a plus that is! We are close to both St. Petersburg and Tampa with all the hubbub and restaurants that brings. We are also in an area of wonderful boating, fishing, swimming, and viewing nature. First time kayakers can learn the basics, have a great time, AND be safe. That is not true of kayaking many places.
Kathy you have a little piece of paradise. Clean comfortable cottages and lovely grounds. Your location to the beach and John's Pass couldn't be much closer. Short driving distance to great golf courses and grocery shopping. And the best part having the property fenced for the dogs to enjoy too. It was so nice to be able to vacation with our dog.
Thanks Kathy and Staff.
Booked with Changing Tides Cottages to attend the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day. We almost always travel with our dog, so "pet friendly" is tops with us. This place is not only pet friendly, they love our pets! The property is completely fenced, and if you have a well-behaved pet they are free to roam the property, with your supervision. You could find water bowls here and there and toys scattered about. Our pooch loved having his freedom, and so much to explore! Chasing the little lizards had to be his favorite activity! Our cottage was quaint and comfortable, stocked with everything needed, and VERY clean. My only suggestion for the Music Cottage (each cottage has a theme) would be to replace the futon in the living room. It had seen it's better days as far as comfort was concerned. Would come back here for sure if we come to the Tampa area again, and would recommend to anyone traveling to this area with your pet! Owner/operators very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Don't pass this place up!!
Changing Tides Cottages rock! The cottage that we stayed in was 5 yards from Boca Ciega Bay and we had the best view from our living room and bedroom. It was so relaxing to go to sleep and to wake up each morning to the pretty water view. You really don't even need to go to the beach to enjoy to the water and the beach feel. Kathy, the owner, and Jane, Kathy's helper, are both very personable and give great recommendations. Also, the actual cottage compound is pet-friendly and is great b/c it's enclosed and our dogs were able to run around or hang out outside our cottage. The cottages are also located within walking distance to the shops at John's Pass. If you choose to visit, also go to Walt's for dinner (at John's Pass) or to Dockside Dave's and get the Grouper sandwich and fries. They are awesome! • • •
Deep water docks along the sea wall in front of the cottage. Complimentary kayaks and fishing. One block to white sand beach and two blocks to John's Pass with shops/restaurants/fishing or cruising charters on the Gulf of Mexico. See dolphins, manatees, and Florida seabirds while fishing or relaxing in your front yard.
