Lovely place to stay! Nice amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for two! Everything is in excellent condition. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but very close to the beach and shops and restaurants! The amenities are very nice! Screened in porch is nice. The shared "backyard" is very spacious, with a pool, hot tub, and gas grills. Free access to bicycles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas is a plus! There are four grills for the four cottages to share. We love that we can bring out dog!

We just stayed in the Mermaid for four weeks and it was amazing! My daughter and I recently moved to St Pete. We decided to sell all of our furniture and stay in a vacation rental until we had permanent housing. Our plan worked perfectly. Judy's cottage was the perfect place to relax as we found our new home and furnished it. The backyard with pool and hot tub are amazing. The pictures don't do it justice. The cottage is adorable and has EVERYTHING from beach towels to keurig pods. The neighborhood

is friendly and eclectic. I met such nice people when walking our dog in the mornings. Judy even offered us their truck to help with moving our things. The couples me met were so nice. It was just an incredible experience and the perfect start to our new life!

This was our third time staying in one of Judy’s Tropical Cottages and will return as often as possible. We love these cottages.The pictures of the Cottages and property are exactly as you see. Judy has thought of everything needed to make your stay feel like the cottage is your very own. It is stocked with everything except groceries. The pool and barbecue area are a perfect oasis to enjoy after a day at the beach or sightseeing.

During our stay, we had to contend with hurricane Irma. It was nice knowing Judy was concerned for our safety being under a mandatory evacuation for the area. After Irma departed we traveled back to the cottage later that day not knowing what to expect for damage from Irma. There were many areas without electricity. Upon our arrival we were relieved to find no damage to the cottage and the electricity was working. We enjoyed the rest of our vacation in the comfort of our home away from home.

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.
