This place is the bomb!!! We like everyone else, is now going to be a regular. The owner is fantastic. We could have cast the rod from our bed in the "Fishing Cottage" John's Pass at your feet, [a boardwalk], The Gulf is a half a block away. Why leave the Cottage?? A joy to be at with all the...

My 120lb dog Eli and I love this place. Hope to stay through March, The rooms have everything you need for a nice stay. If you want a jacuzi tub and room service, skip here. If you are looking for a fun place for you and your dog, this is it. I can open the sliding door and let the... More

We just got back from our 4th stay at the Tides a few weeks ago, and I honestly can say that I can't imagine what the last 2 reviewers are talking about. It is well advertised as an older resort and as such, has eclectic furnishings and objects. That is one of the things that appeals to me. If you've... More

This is our second time back to Changing Tides and we stayed in the same unit (we asked the owner which unit the Beach Jail review referred to and it turned out to be ours). My wife and I were dumbfounded that this was our romantic "Music Room". Here is our review: Changing Tides is an unusual find in a... More

It is never my intention to hurt a business, But in this case, I have to write this review, because reviews are the reason my husband and I rented this cottage for two weeks, although we actually left our vacation 2 days early because we could'nt stand staying another night. These are, by far, The WORST accomodations I have ever... More

My Husband and I frequently stay in cottages. I understand older cottages may have older appliances and furniture. However, our cottage called the romance cottage was old and dingy. We were to stay 2 nights. After seeing how dirty our room was the first night, the owner was kind enough to refund our 2nd night. My mother, husband, and I... More

This is a very cozy place. The entire place has 1 and 2 bedroom cottages that are older, so don't expect high end, but all is clean and cute and quaint and relaxing on the water with docks out back, kayaks for use, and all the pets roam and play together. !/2 mile or less walk to Hubbard's Marina and...

I loved this place, mostly. The location, for me, couldn't be better. I was seeking a all-in-one locale with easy access to fishing and the beach - that also allowed dogs and had the conveniences of home. Changing Tides met all those criteria. The cottages were clean and had everything my friend and I needed to do our own cooking,... More

We had a two bedroom cottage. Kitchen is small, but has everything you could need. I was on vacation so everything came out of frig, microwave or restaurant, so it worked for me. lol. Walk to beach in just a few min. Crossing the 4 lanes of Gulf Blvd was not bad at all.(something I was worried about) 133rd and... More
