About the property

1 Bedroom, 1full Bathroom, Outdoor shower, Sleeps 2

Relax in our charming one bedroom cottage that is comfortable and perfect for a couple wanting a beach vacation. The one bedroom cottage has been newly renovated and was originally built as a fishing camp in 1938. It has the old Florida feel but the comforts of home. It has a fully equipped kitchen, sheets and towels, beach chairs, towels and a cooler for your use at the beach. The bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed, two dressers and a closet. Also, there is a desk in the bedroom. The living room has a futon that makes into a queen size bed. There is also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to rinse off after a day at the beach. There is a washer and dryer in the cottage. There is seating in the yard along with a gas grill and a hammock. The beach access is across the street. Madeira beach is a natural beach with sea oats, powder white sand on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. John's Pass Village is very close (3/10 of a mile) where you will find shops, restaurants, and watersport activities. There is much to do within walking distance of the cottage and there is also a beach trolley to take you up and down the beaches. We have been renting the cottages for about 12 years and just recently added the one bedroom cottage on homeaway. If you would like to read reviews on this cottage please refer to homeaway #131317 and you will find reviews on both our one and two bedroom cottage.

About John and Wynn Kenyon

John and I are Florida natives and love to share our charming little cottages with our guests so that they can experience a little piece of paradise. I was born and raised in Clearwater, FL and John in Jacksonville, FL. We both grew up at the beach and on the water and love to spend as much time as we can here. We were blessed to have an opportunity to purchase them from our dear friends who moved to Vermont in 2005. We have been running the vacation rental business since 2005.

John and Wynn Kenyon purchased this cottage in 2005

Why John and Wynn Kenyon chose Madeira Beach

The cottages were built in 1938 as fishing camps and have been newly renovated with the comforts of home. Although this cottage is comfortable for two people there is also a two bedroom cottage on the same property. It is nice to rent both cottages for two families if the occasion arises. You can view the two bedroom cottage on Homeaway#131317 or visit

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage just makes you relax the moment you walk in. It is quite and gives you that cottage feel. It is nice to spend a day at the beach and then come back to a little shaded yard to relax, sip a cold drink or grill. Rent one or both cottages. You can view the two bedroom cottage on Homeaway # 131317

Charming Cottage By The Sea.... One bedroom cottage
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews
Toronto, Canada

Pefect, dog friendly little cottage close to rhe beach and waterways for a couple or small family.

  • 4 of 5

Wynn is a gracious host and very welcoming. The cottage is bright, airy and very clean with a pretty, fenced in yard shared between the two cottages on the property. The beach is a short walk away. St John's pass is a couple of blocks away with a boardwalk great for dolphin watching. There are a few restaurants within walking distance, I'd recommend Mad Beach Fish House - lowkey but good food and friendly. We also enjoyed Conch Republic and Salt Rock Grill, both a short drive.

Everything you need for the beach and your stay is thoughtfully supplied. As you share a grill and garden area with the other cottage neighbourly considerations are important especially if you have a pet with you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Charming Cottage.

Car: not necessary

The cottages are located in a very convenient location. Very close to many restaurants and shops and John's Pass Village. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium where Dolphin Tale was filmed is nearby. Not to mention the main event... The beautiful beach is across the street. The cottage has a shaded courtyard to relax after a day at the beach. Although we have been renting the one bedroom cottage for years, we have recently added it on homeaway. If you would like to read reviews about the cottage please refer to our two bedroom homeaway listing # 131317 There you will see reviews for both the one and two bedroom cottages.
