About Property Manager
Thank you for your interest in our vacation home for your upcoming holiday! Before you book, we would like to share what our vacation rental is all about. We appreciate that all vacation rentals are different, which makes it a unique option when traveling, and we feel it’s nice for our guests to know what type of vacation rental you are selecting for your vacation, and who you are renting from. Dan and I live in a suburb near Toronto, Ontario and fell in love with the charm and personal touches of Gulf Gardens when we traveled to Madeira Beach for the first time in 2010. Less than a year later, we purchased unit #5 as our own home-away-from-home! There are approximately 20 cottages (condos) that make up Gulf Gardens Resort. Each cottage is privately owned by different owners from around the United States and Canada.
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Property Manager chose Madeira Beach
As we are still a young(ish) family with a teenage daughter and full-time jobs in Canada, our lives do not allow us to spend as much time at our beach house as we hope to be able to do in the future; that is where you come along! Fortunately, there are services now that allow us to share our home-away-from-home with other vacationers looking for a unique vacation experience. We have been renting our property to vacationers and snowbirds since 2011, and knowing that our cottage has contributed to so many memories over the years is very special to us. One of my favourite things to do when we arrive is to check the cottage journal and read your stories and recommendations on things to do and places to eat! We have been very grateful to have had great guests over the years who are very respectful that they are renting someone else’s home, and have treated our cottage with the same care they would their own. Many of our guests return year-over-year and feel that our cottage is their second home as well. Having shared that we do not live locally, we still want you to know that you are in good hands while you are a guest, and will not be left unassisted during your stay. Gulf Gardens is fortunate to have great property managers who live onsite and are available daily to all guests (owners and renters). Imre manages the office, greets our guests and gets them checked in and out, and is available for questions and assistance during your stay. You will often see Imre’s wife, Maria, tending to the gardens or painting murals and artwork around the property. Both are warm and lovely and you will feel like family by the end of your stay!

Perfect spot for a beach getaway!
We totally enjoyed our stay at this cozy beach cottage! It has everything you need to make you feel at home. The location is right across the street from the beach, yet we found it to be very quiet and buffered from the traffic noise. Kelly, the owner, is fantastic to work with, and has done a fabulous job making the cottage a true home away from home! We look forward to returning in December!
Location, location, location!
The location of this cute little cottage is perfect! We were able to walk just about everywhere we wanted. John's Pass is just a stroll down the beach! We could not have been happier! The owner is very kind and is great at communicating everything prior to arrival! Would love to come back and stay again!
We had the most relaxing vacation ever. The other guests we met had been visiting this little resort for many years. They were all so friendly. It was very quiet at night all though situated on Gulf Blvd.
Our cottage was clean and well equipped. A return visit ls in our future plans.
Beautiful grounds, awesome pool, great location!
This was a fantastic vacation spot! The cottage is fairly private and had everything we needed. So much storage and hooks everywhere (inside and outside) for hanging towels, clothes, etc. The landscaping and the pool area were so beautiful! I can't say enough good things about this unit and resort! Kelly was so easy to deal with and always answered my questions quickly. Once at the cottage, Evelyn, Imre, and Sue were all super nice and helpful. I highly recommend this cottage and Gulf Gardens! Loved it so much!
Clean, affordable cottage with perfect location! Close to beach, restaurants and shops! Looking forward to our next stay!
