Why Judy Tagert chose Florida Central West

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.

Beautiful Place to Relax and have Fun!

  • 5 of 5

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!

❤️The Edwards Family

Absolutely perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottages are all updated and sqeeky clean. Judy and Drake are wonderful people. So helpful and friendly. They keep the cottages running smoothly by checking on them daily. We will be coming back for our vacations in the future. We had privacy when we wanted it or we could go to he beautiful pool and socialize with our neighbors. You will not be disappointed coming here. It is minutes from the beach and John's Pass. Judy has everything you need for your vacation including towels, beach chairs, beach buggy and a cooler. Not the cheap stuff either. We had the best vacation ever!!!

very nice and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very nice. The updates are perfect and it was so nice to have an owner so concerned that everything was ok. You don't need to bring much of anything here because so much is provided. Thank You Judy for the drive to the car rental and concern about Joey's back. We were very fortunate to have found this vacation rental and would very much recommend it.

secluded paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We recently went with family (7 adults and 3 children); we rented out all 4 cottages for the week. No one was disappointed, everyone was genuinely surprised at how nice they were! You feel secluded, because the drive in is landscaped and you can't see the road, except where you pull out. So nice not to have to buy toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, pots, pans, utensils, plates, coffee cups, etc...We brought our clothes and some food, shopped for the rest of the food. BBQ pits for every cottage and nice ones too! outdoor fridges, bikes, patio furniture... Walked to the beach everyday, shopped at John's Pass, swam in the pool every day, no one wanted to leave! Judy checked in frequently asking if there was anything we needed. We will be back, we come to Florida every few years, and we know where we will stay every time we are in Madeira beach! You will not be disappointed! Wish I could give it 10 stars!

Extremely nice cottages!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an AWESOME PLACE. It is a little piece of PARADISE!

These cottages are better looking in person than the pictures online which was a nice surprise. Everything has been updated and is kept in immaculate condition. Judy was on the site almost every day and is always checking to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Everything is included for a vacation PARADISE. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, beautifully landscaped and very close to John's Pass "walking distance" for food and entertainment and the beach. Nothing was needed to have a very nice relaxing vacation. We will be back next year and many more after that!

Highly recommended!!!!

Thanks Judy.
