The Surf Cottage. Walk To Beach, Shops, Dining & Water Sports
average rating of 4.962963 based on 27 reviews

The cottage was clean, inviting and well appointed. The pool and outside eating areas were great.

  • 5 of 5

I have already recommended this property to family. 4 of us rented 2 cottages and had local visitors, with as many as 8 for dinner one night. The grill, outside table and pool were great for entertaining. The location was great for access to St. John's Pass and the beach. The screened porch was a great place to read. The ownerwas very welcoming. Iwill be back.

Perfect Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved the cottage we rented and there are 4 cottages together and share a common salt water swimming pool and spa., much better than a hotel. It is located close to the beaches, restaurants, etc. but yet set back so it is relaxing and quiet. The owner made sure all our needs were met, let us know who was staying in each cottage and it was like one big family. You could socialize or be alone, your choice. The kitchen was stocked with everything you may need to cook with, just like being at home, a washer and dryer in each cottage, plus 4 propane grills outside, and just a lovely place. We will be back, unless of course we move to Florida, which is a very distinct possibility. Thank you Judy for all you caring and warm and loving ways.

Great - we'll be back

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was very comfortable and nicely decorated. Very clean and well maintained. It had all kinds of electronics, from blender to coffee maker, left you needing nothing from home.

The grounds were spectacular. Ample parking. Multiple grill and patio furniture to accommodate all the guest. The pool, hot tub, outdoor bar (with refrigerator) and grill area were beautiful and accommodating. Nicely layed out.

There were plenty of restuarants near by. The beach was near as well, but we spent our time at pool, it was too nice to leave.

Overall a great experience. The owners did not spare any expense, nicely done and appreciated.

I'm sure we'll be back and recommend to others.

Thank you for the relaxing vacation experience.

Judy's Tropical Cottages felt like the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Judy's Tropical Cottages. The very private Compound is close to everything but when you get back to the cottages we felt like we were in the Keys. King size bed and other amenities were perfect. Judy was available and answered any questions I had. The pool area was an oasis and we enjoyed swimming at night. Visiting family for a 50th Birthday, staying the July 4th week. The Madeira Beach Fireworks on the water was part our perfect vacation!!!!!!! Thank you so much Judy for a wonderful relaxing vacation. This is the place to stay and we will be back!
