Madeira Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2 adults comfortably, Close to the Beach

These quaint, authentic (built in 1940's)Key West 'Old Florida' cottages are cozy and very clean, and have been completely renovated (will be completed December 2014) along with a saltwater pool, jacuzzi, 2 outdoor bar/grills with seating on the fenced back yard compound (5000 sq. ft.). This tiny cottage sleeps 2 adults comfortably. There is a queen sofa bed for an overnight guest. Very small fenced back yard with each cottage..perfect for Fido. Romantic screened porch. Very quiet, dog friendly neighborhood. Plenty of parking on the compound. Each cottage has 2 bikes, 2 beach chairs, umbrella, beach buggy. It is a very short walk to the beach, dining, shopping and water activities. The world-famous John's Pass Village and Boardwalk close by gives you an oasis from the ordinary. This cozy fishing village has tempting restaurants and unusual shopping. You will find quaint shops that offer antiques, arts, crafts, clothing and jewelry.

Why Judy Tagert chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

These little neglected cottages needed TLC. The buildings are very authentic but needed updating and major renovation to preserve. The compound was big enough to put a 5000 sq foot back yard with pool, etc.

What makes this cottage unique

These little cottages are so charming and quaint. The cottages were in very poor condition when i purchased this property. I worked with the City of Madeira Beach to make this compound a much better place in this little neighborhood. The cozy screened porches are a favorite. The compound has plenty of room for everyone and ample parking. Guests love being able to walk to John's Pass Village.

Amazing Vacation with a Thoughtful Hostess!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin...Judy is a wonderful hostess! She is kind, thoughtful, and extremely considerate. Judy gave us lots of excellent recommendations for things to do and restaurants to have meals. The Sunshine Cottage is located within walking distance of the beach and many other great places to eat and shop. Although close to everything, the cottage is located off the Main Street so you feel comfortable with adequate privacy. This cottage is part of three other cottages on her property, which share a parking lot and a fantastic salt water pool and jacuzzi. Everything on her property is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The cottage is cozy, spotless, and will accommodate guests every need...even the ones you might not anticipate. The cottages have all the amenities of home and more...stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, adorable home decor, beach gear, bikes, and pool accessories. I honestly couldn't think of one thing to add to the vacation home, Judy has really included everything! We felt incredibly blessed to be able to bring our two pups with us! It was a pleasure meeting Judy! We look forward to visiting with her again! Thank you for an amazing week!

Everything and more than you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Our group rented all four cottages. Perfect set up, cottages were clean and well maintained, equipped with all the amenities of home. Pool area was absolutely wonderful, equipped with refrigerators, grills, patio furniture, large sun umbrellas, and more. It was a wonderful vacation. Judy is so accommodating and goes out of her way to assure you have all you need and have a wonderful time. Definitely recommend any of the cottages and will definitely be going back myself.

Beautifuly property/wonderfully, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough what a truly wonderful stay we had in the Sunshine Cottage for the month of January. The cottage is so comfortable, clean and delightfully furnished. The beach is just a short 5-10 min walk away and Judy furnishes beach chairs and umbrellas for a day at the beach. Also within walking distance are numerous fishing sites. The cottage is also convenient to John's Pass for shops and restaurants. Judy provides bikes for riding in the neighborhoods and on the numerous trails around the area. There is also a beautiful pool and spa area. The comfortable, private porch is great for an afternoon of reading.

Judy and Drake are responsive to any requests and so kind and thoughtful in their dealings with guests. They provide everything that a guest would need for a visit. We are so grateful for our stay at the Sunshine Cottage.
