A wonderful week in the Surf Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Surf cottage was lovely and truly one of the best-stocked rentals we have ever had. The decor is quaint "old Florida" and everything has been updated. Loved the Kerig coffee maker and the washer & dryer in the cottage. The location was great: just a few blocks off Gulf Blvd in a quiet residential area. Each of the 4 cottages on the property had a small private fenced-in back yard -- Perfect for our precious pups. The heated pool, hot tub, outdoor grilling areas and landscaping were a slice of paradise. Judy, the owner, is great to work with, very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We have stayed previously in the Mermaid and the Flamingo and been very pleased with all of our stays at Judy's Tropical Cottages. Highly recommended.

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at the Surf Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had cozy coastal elements. Anything you needed was provided by the owner. There was plenty of towels, kitchen supplies, beach chairs and bicycles. Beautiful heated pool and hot tub on the property. A short walk to the beach and Johns Pass.

The owner was lovely and always available We are returning

Wonderful week in a charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Myself, Husband and our English Pointer were in town visiting family for Thanksgiving week. We looked at a lot of places before deciding on this one based on the other reviews and location. It was everything we expected. The cottage although small, was clean, had a good layout so the Kitchen and living room were both comfortable spaces. The king size bed was amazing and so comfy. Everything has been updated. The pool area was so nice. All of the other renters in the cottages next to us were very friendly. We got to meet Judy and speak with her a bit, such a sweet host. Judy, you did an amazing job with the property. I would highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Perfect, I loved the surf cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and clean, I had everything I could possibly need, including a bike which I used everyday. The outdoor area was tropical and serene. The location was perfect. Judy is an amazing host, very friendly and responsive. My cottage neighbors were wonderful. I didn't want to leave and I would definitely stay here again!
