We stayed for 2 nights (3 of us) and our dog. We were in the Nature Cottage which is right on the water. The view was the thing I fell in love with. I just threw open the drapes from the bed and was greeted by the intracoastal and beautiful boats - just 10 feet from my bed! Right outside... More

I can't rave about this place enough. These cozy cottages are pet friendly, near to johns pass, near beach and have everything you need. The kitchen has full size fridge, microwave, stove, toaster and is fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, utensils and silverware. We will definitely be coming back and have truly found a home away from home.

Old Florida at its best. Away from the noise and bustle of Gulf Blvd, it's a cozy oasis on a canal, across from a quiet marina. In a residential neighborhood, a short walk to the beach and within walking distance of John's Pass. We always stay at Changing Tides when we come to the Tampa Bay Area.

We stayed here a few years ago ( but the pic list wouldn't let me ignore a date so I had to put in April 2013 to continue), before I was reviewing. It was a great spot! The people were wonderful and friendly. Very down to earth. Clean, Pretty. Comfortable, nicely equipped. The bbq and patio area was so nice... More

We visit Florida friends each January; meeting at a chosen location. We plan to make this our yearly destination after enjoying the most relaxing get away in years. The accomodations exceeded all expectation. Cathy is amazing and was available for everything....from making sure our cottages were acceptable to providing information about local restaurants and events! I cannot begin to express... More

We stayed in the Fishing Cottage, which is a small efficiency, but it was exactly what we needed. We were down there to clean out my father-in-law's condo after his death...so I didn't get to spend much time on the property. But my husband needed some relaxing time...and this cottage is the closest to the water (Boca Ciega Bay). Couldn't... More

This was our fifth or sixth time visiting Changing Tides. Kathy, the owner, has made some lovely upgrades to the garden. The place as always was welcoming and completely relaxing. Nothing fancy, true seashore atmosphere. Everyone was very pleasant and friendly, as were their pets. We spent some days at Fort Desoto park and one day at Picnic Island park... More

We spent another long weekend at Changing Tides at the beginning of September and it was just as great as the first time. This time I didn't pack a lot of kitchen stuff, knowing that the cabins are well-stocked. Other than renting a boat one day for a great time on the harbors (great recommendation on a rental place by... More

We were looking for a real vacation, a place where you disconnect yourself from technology, work and etc. Very good for the price, our Cottage was the romance, we were cooking at home most nights, wel-equipped rooms. My kids enjoyed so much the kayaks, fishing and beach toys provided by Kathy. Its walking distance to the beach, restaurants and the... More
