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

Reminded me of time spent here in Florida as a young boy in the early 60's. We stayed in the Nature Cottage overlooking the Marina, peaceful at the far end of the property and perfect for our dog who usually barks at passerby's. Features; 1 bedroom cottage with full kitchen with all utensils, pots, pans and dishes, full sized fridge,... More

Even though I am a dog lover I do NOT want to sleep in sheets covered in dog and long human hair, which there were both. Didn't discover until the girls were getting in their beds the first night so didnt want to disturb the owners. Had them shake the sheets out but they were still grossed out. Sheets were... More

We are very sorry that our guest had to experience hair on their sheets. Certainly anyone would be upset. Since I, Kathy, the owner, washed and replaced the original sheets, I am at a loss to say what happened. However, it happened and for that I am sorry. I am also sorry that our guest did not come to the... More

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
