3rd time wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Judy's for the 3rd time. It is simply the best. It truly feels like home each time we are there. Just like old home week with meeting the same guests as the past years. Very social. The heated jacuzzi is a nice addition as we spent many evenings after a walk on the beach in the hot tub. We will be back again. Thanks again Judy and Drake for a lovely place to stay and your wonderful hospitality.

Quaint "Old Florida" charm with modern, luxurious amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in the lovely Mermaid Cottage. The decor and furnishings were even better than pictured and we loved everything from the screened front porch to the cozy, tropical fenced backyard. The outdoor kitchens in the breezeway and at the pool were perfect for grilling out and entertaining guests. Each cottage has a private storage shed where bikes, beach chairs, wagon, umbrellas, etc are provided. You simply could not ask for more. All I can add is "Ditto! Ditto! Ditto!" to all the other 5-star reviews!

The owner was most friendly and helpful...So attentive to every detail and every question. She has truly created a little tropical paradise and anticipates your every need!

The beach was only about 3-4 blocks away, but my favorite escape was to the heated salt-water pool & hot tub in a beautifully landscaped, fenced area. This was the perfect spot for R&R for us and our precious pups. Her location is very convenient for shopping: grocery stores, drug stores, boutiques, souvenir shops -- all nearby. We'll be back!

Comfort and Location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage we stayed at was very clean and very comfortable. It is modern on the inside with beautiful light tropical colored walls. The furniture and decorations are suited to make one feel that it is a home. Appliances worked well and the Keurig coffee machine was a blessing. The back patio was like an oasis snuggled in the surrounding residential neighborhood. Tropical trees and plants surround the patio. The screened-in front porch is a nice touch and the common breezeway was like a gathering place. The bed is king-sized and possibly the most comfortable one my wife and I have ever encountered. Judy has created a beautiful pool area with a hot tub which cascades water down into the heated pool. There are several outdoor grills for use in addition to the full kitchen in the cottage.

The cottages are located approximately 3 blocks from the Madeira Beach. Judy has bikes, beach chairs, coolers and other articles available to use to enjoy days at the beach. There is a 7-11 store within walking distance and a Publix grocery store nearby. John's Pass is also within walking distance and provides a nice change of pace with all the various shops and water activities and restaurants when you've had too much sun.

My wife and I agree this is the best vacation we have had. Judy was always available for questions or assistance and is a warm, friendly person. Playing and relaxing all day on the beach was an experience we were looking for. But after a long, exhaustive day we were ready to go home to the cottage .

The cottages are a home away from home. A unique experience we totally recommend to others.

Return visit as good as the first.

  • 5 of 5

Judy and Drake are great hosts. This was our second visit to Judy's Cottages and we enjoyed every minute. The weather cleared up after the storm moved on and we had sunshine everyday. The pool area is a great way to spend the day swimming and getting much needed R & R. The cottages have everything required to make you feel like it is your own vacation home. Many restaurants nearby and if you are looking for a great steak go to Bern's Steak House in Tampa you will not be disappointed.
