Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was wonderful! The location was great. Everything we really wanted for our vacation was within walking distance, it made it very convenient. We loved the walks on the beach, and the beautiful sunsets. It was our anniversary and vacation wrapped into one. The cottage is very cozy and romantic. Definitely will be back. It gets top ratings from us. We loved it. Thank you.

Always fun! 😎

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth year staying here, and we hope we can always stay here as long as we come to Madeira Beach. We love everything about this place! All you need to bring is your clothes -the cottage has everything in you need. The furniture is comfortable, and the new memory foam mattress is VERY comfortable! There is no oven (which I love) but there is a frying pan, toaster oven & crock pot..really don't need anything else. You can see the ocean when sitting on the huge deck in the back. When sitting on the patio in the front, you can see the people on the boardwalk and listen to the music from the Bamboo. Everything is done by 10 so noise is never a problem. You can park and never have to leave the cottage. There are many great restaurants within walking distance. My husband enjoyed the fishing here. Went with Go Fast Fishing charter and everybody caught their limit of Grouper & Amberjack. Looking forward to staying here next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review. It sure sounds like you were taking advantage of a lot of the fun things to do in the area. Isn't the Cottage just a great place? I appreciate your returning each year for a visit, and I look forward to your return again.

Great place to stay in Johns Pass

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our unit. It was clean and just as described. There was an electrical issue but the owner was quick to get it resolved. Parking is a bit of an issue, not the getting in but the getting back out. Since we were with the two of us it was possible with two pair of eyes to keep a good eye on traffic and pedestrians and get backed out safely. We found John's Pass an enjoyable place to visit. We would recommend it to our friends and are hoping to return next year. Hank & Marg

Owner's Response: Thanks for leaving a nice review, and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit enough to want to come back again. We hope you will return for a visit real soon. With regard to the parking, I'm glad you noted it. Due to the small lots on the beaches, sometimes parking is a challenge. At the Cottage by the Pass we have one long driveway that is accessible from both ends. One end is on Gulf Blvd and the other on Gulf Lane (more of an alley). The guests in the downstairs unit use the end closest to the Lane, and the upstairs use the end closer to Gulf Blvd. So, sometimes it is necessary to back out onto Gulf Blvd, but, in most cases (except during the busiest tourist months) it's not much of an issue to get in and out. We look forward to your next visit to the Cottage.

Cottage By the Pass - Upstairs Unit

  • 3 of 5

The location of the house is great and it is without a doubt charming. Two issues however impacted the rating I gave on the place.

The mattress is horrible. It sags in the middle and is clearly worn out with little or no support. The condition of the mattress made sleeping not so great and should be replaced with a new mattress. I encouraged the owner to try spending the night on it with another person. Might be worth the experience to verify my opinion. The other thing is the floors were not clean when we arrived. The floors were dirty as we found from our white socks the first night we were there.

Somehow I missed that the house did not have an oven, but we were able to suffice with the toaster oven. Not sure how I missed that.

Based on the mattress I would give the place a two and a half to three out of five. Had the mattress been better or new I would have rated four out five.

Owner's Response: Jeff, Thank you kindly for taking the time to give me your feedback. I really appreciate it as it helps me make the place better for your future visit as well as for all future guests. I wish you would have let me know right away about the bed. That mattress is the top of the line Ethan-Allen that was purchased 8 months ago. Had I known that it was going to have such an impact on your visit I most certainly would have had a new one delivered immediately. This is why I call each guest shortly after their arrival to be sure all is OK. Not knowing until after you have gone does not afford me the opportunity to make your stay the best it can be. Based on your note I will have a new memory foam mattress in there right away. The floor issue is something I must take up with my housekeeper. Again, had I known it was not done satisfactorily I would have sent someone out to make it so. Again, thank you for taking the time to let me know about your visit and how I can make the Cottage by the Pass the best it can be. Also, thank you leaving the cottage in such good condition. I hope you'll visit again soon (and sleep well on the new bed). Regards, Cherie

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My stay for a week at the Cottage by the Pass was everything I anticipated. It is centrally located close to shopping, bars and the beach so you can experience all of these just by walking out the door. I was serenaded each day by music in the evening from the bar across the street and had my choice of restaurants each day.

The property itself was well maintained and intimate and provided the perfect size for my vacation stay, yet was able to handle visitors with the spacious deck attached. Do not make the mistake of staying in a hotel when this property can provide you with much more for the same price.
