This 800 square foot cottage has been totally updated and sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Just walk out the door and your just steps away from the beautiful white sandy beach. No need to worry about parking, just take your beach towel and enjoy your day or evening in your back yard. The sunsets are amazing!! There are 2 parking spaces for your friends and family. The bedrooms have a queen bed in the master and 2 twins in the guest room. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal with a table that seats 4. There is a trolley that can take you 17 miles down the beach, from St. Petersburg Beach to Clearwater Beach. John's Pass Village is within walking distance from the cottage. There you will find unique shopping and great seafood and steak restaurants along with boat and jet ski rentals, parasailing, fishing charters, dolphin watching trips and art galleries. For the kids, Busch Gardens is just 45 minutes away and Walt Disney is just a 1.5 hour drive.

My husband and I rented this house for a little "staycation". It was very clean and comfortable. It had just about everything you would need for a week. I would suggest bringing your own beach chairs and umbrella though. Also, you will need shampoo/conditioner. A new bar of soap was provided. The bed was comfortable and it was nice to be able to bring our little dog without being charged a huge deposit or fee. It takes less than a minute to walk to the beach and maybe 5 -7 minutes to John's Pass. The owner of the home was very nice and answered the phone right away when we had a question about something. Our friends came and stayed with us one night and they said they may want to rent it in the future. I will agree with the other reviewer who mentioned the A/C was loud. It is very loud but we got used to it and it did drown out the traffic noise outside so we were glad for it. We would definitely recommend this property to any of our friends and family.
I looked at dozens of condos/cottages/houses/etc. looking for the perfect (yet affordable) beach rental in the St Pete area for a weeks vacation and this home-away-from-home lived up to all of my hopes and expectations. There was everything that anyone could possibly need provided in the kitchen, the AC was on and pumping in the cold air when we arrived, couches & beds very comfy. Lee even stopped by b/c his wife was worried that she had forgotten to provide a bar of soap for the shower! There is not a single thing overlooked by the owners when caring for this property and it cannot be beaten for the location & the price!!!
Comfortable bedrooms w/ TV and internet access provided.
Beach access point only one house over
Great outdoor sitting area with gas grill (the cleanest one my husband had ever seen!), we ate out here every night of our trip.
John's Pass tourist area only 1 mile down the road w/ plenty of little shops & places to eat.
The AC unit was very loud in the master bedroom and I'm a light sleeper unfortunately.
The main road is literally right outside the front door but the traffic noise was minimal.
Kitchen table wasn't good for much more than setting purses and whatnot on, but we ate outside anyhow so no big deal :)
Thank you Lee for a great week in Madeira Beach!!! We will definitely be return "customers" :)
We loved the cottage and Lee is the perfect landlord. It had nearly everything we needed for a 3 month stay and what wasn't provided Lee got for us. He was also right there when small problems cropped up. It is comfortable, clean, roomy, easy to care for. Love the nearness to beach and enjoyed spending time relaxing on patio. As for the annoying neighbor someone mentioned ... just say a cheery hello and keep on walking ... it worked for us. Picking up a bus or trolley to most anywhere right out front was a definite plus ... as is the pet friendly policy. We will be back Jan. 1 and really looking forward to being there again.
Excellent location and beach access. Lee was wonderful to work with. Will be staying there again in the future.
I took my 5-year old son, my husband and his 19 year old brother. We all fit into this home comfortably. Lee is one the most helpful people I have ever met. Don't let this home get away. It is withing walking distance to St. Johns pass, a local hotspot for kid and adult activities. It is steps away from a beautiful lowly populated beach and worth every penny.You will not regret vacationing here.
Thank you lee!!

We loved the cottage! It was very neat, clean and cute and the owner was great to work with. It is a 1/2 block from the ocean, but really in a nice location with John's Pass only about 4 blocks away. The only downside was the chatty neighbor that trapped us a few times. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this cottage.
