Why Judy Tagert chose Saint Petersburg
These little neglected cottages needed TLC. The buildings are very authentic but needed updating and major renovation to preserve. The compound was big enough to put a 5000 sq foot back yard with pool, etc.
What makes this Cottage unique
These little cottages are so charming and quaint. The cottages were in very poor condition when i purchased this property. I worked with the City of Madeira Beach to make this compound a much better place in this little neighborhood. The cozy screened porches are a favorite. The compound has plenty of room for everyone and ample parking. Guests love being able to walk to John's Pass Village.

My wife & I thought it was perfect! Nice size for a couple, very clean, up to date and well maintained. Pool and hot tub were great to hangout in. The location was close to Johns Pass so you could walk over and leave the car parked. A very safe location, everyone we encountered was friendly. The other couples that were staying in the additional cottages were very nice. We talked with the owner a number of times, she was great.
Thank you very much for the for the thoughtful review. Very much appreciated.
See you in 2019.
Stay in touch, judy
Judy takes great care to provide the best stay possible.
Our 2nd time returning and we were not disappointed
Excellent, quiet, very well equipped with everything you need!
Felt like home!
The property was wonderful! It was clean and updated. The pool area was private and relaxing. Location is great! Within walking distance to the beach and John's Pass.
I'd like to give Judy's tropical Cottages 10 stars! It was the best vacation experience we ever had. The cottages are beautiful, immaculate, everything you could need or want. Comfy beds and awesome pillows, top of the line cookware, The BBQ grills, the outdoor fridges, the doggy bowls for water, The cozy lounges, the outdoor sofa and chairs, the multi huge umbrellas. I could go on and on. I loved the peacefulness of the screened porch with the comfy sofa like area with pillows, the table and chairs. The nights were so serene, I was lost in thoughts of my return. We originally booked for 4 weeks, and extended an additional week and still hated to leave. The people we met were all so nice and friendly and we are all talking of returning at the same time next year. Judy and Drake are wonderful hosts who make sure everyone is happy. They were so kind, they brought us pineapple one day and an awesome desert one evening. Our little girl "Maggie" enjoyed her vacation as well, met so many furry friends at the local dog parks, and the people who live there are also friendly. I'll miss my furry pal Packer, who I saw every morning between 8 and 8:30 am. It is your own little private oasis, and I would recommend it to anyone, but 1 week is not enough..you won't want to leave. Everyone we met wished they could have stayed longer, one extended a few days, but due to her job wished she could stay much longer. We have already put our deposit down for next year and we will stay 5-6 weeks again. Thank you Judy and Drake for the slice of heaven you created!
Beautiful Place to Relax and have Fun!
We love Judy and The Sunshine Cottage! My husband and I, with our two girls (pups) stayed here this summer (2017) and last summer (2016). The property is absolutely beautiful and everything we had hoped for (and more!). When you arrive, you find your vacation home even more beautiful than the photographs show. The cottage itself is clean and stocked with many items needed during a vacation get away. I love the decor! The bed is super comfortable as is the living room. Parking is very convenient, right beside the cottage. The kitchen is neatly stocked with pots, pans, dishes, and many other items someone would need during their stay. I love the shared common area between a second cottage with large table and nice grill. It's also nice to find a place that includes a washer/dryer.
Outside, the landscaping is beautiful! The pool is clean and fantastic, very relaxing and the pool area includes floats, umbrella, chairs, and grills! Judy goes out of her way to make her property perfect for guests. She even offers beach items such as umbrella, towels, toys, cart, and bikes!
When you visit this property, you feel at home. Judy is caring and takes great care of her guests. She definitely makes you feel like family! Thank you Judy for going above and beyond! We can't wait to see you again soon!
