Photos and Description of this holiday cottage in Madeira Beach - Gulf Gardens Resort-Cottage #3

Efficiency Cottage - Sleeps 2. Newly upgraded. Non Smoking

NEW MURPHY BED w/premium queen mattress. Cottage #3 is the completely renovated Gulf Gardens efficiency cottage, that sleeps 2. Everything has been updated, but the charm of the 60's cottage still exist. New windows and door beautify the exterior look of the cottage. A new whisper quiet air conditioner and ceiling fan will insure your comfort on those warm Florida nights. The kitchen was gutted and redesigned to include a pantry area for extra storage. New appliances, cabinets, countertop, sink and tile complete this nicely appointed space. A drop leaf table and two chairs offer a comfy place for meals. The love seat and swivel rocker chair are the perfect place to relax and read or watch television on the 47' high definition TV with a Blue Ray player located on top of a new 4 drawer media cabinet. A desk and parson chair are tucked in the corner for those who can't get away from work. WIFI and cable are free at the resort. An additional 3 drawer dresser and closet give ample space for clothes. The bathroom offers storage in the cabinets and a newly tiled step-in shower.

Why Task at Hand Management Solutions chose Florida Central Gulf Coast


Just cross the street and you are steps from the white sandy beach and beautiful sunsets. Gulf Gardens Resort, located on the east side of Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach, Florida is one of the hidden treasures in central Florida. Madeira Beach lies in the center of miles of beautiful white sand beaches, just north of Treasure Island and St. Pete Beach. The area offers many leisure and recreational options including sailing, fishing, parasailing, golf and tennis.

What makes this cottage unique

Many shops and restaurants are within walking distance, including the popular John's Pass Boardwalk. Groceries and a pharmacy are also close by. The Tampa airport is a short 40 minute drive, and Orlando's Disney parks are 1.5 hour drive away. Venture down to Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach, Fort DeSoto Beach or around to Sarasota's, Liddo Beach, all boasting the beautiful sugary sands of the gulf.

Very Cute Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary. We had a great time (except for the extreme heat and humidity) The cottage was so cute and decorated in my favorite colors of blues, turquoise, and sea greens. It was very clean and comfortable and was fully stocked with everything we needed. Parking is just right outside the door which is very handy. The beach is just steps across the street and the pool just right out the door a few steps. The onsite managers Imre and Maria really make this place special. We had stayed at Gulf Gardens before and fell in love with them at that time and was one of the reasons for returning. We recommend The Sea Breeze and The Conch Republic for dining (a short drive away in Redington Beach,) as well as Screwy Louies right down the street. We highly recommend this little cottage and Gulf Gardens for your next vacation or getaway.

Terrific place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This studio cottage was perfect for a long weekend at the beach. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable for two people. All of the grounds were very well kept. Check-in was smooth and Imre offered good suggestions for local restaurants, etc. We loved being just across the street from the beach!! We would definitely return and recommend it to friends or family.
