My husband and I and our three hounds spent this past weekend at Changing Tides Cottages. We live about an hour away and needed a mini vacation that would accommodate three dogs, which isn't always easy to find. We were greeted by the owner, Kathy and her pup Ace. They were both very friendly and inviting. We stayed in the jungle room which was clean and adorable and a perfect size for all three dogs and ourselves. The furniture is pet ready with covers also! We arrived late on Friday so Saturday afternoon we let our dogs explore. The community is gated in except for along the canal, which worried me a little at first, but our dogs as well as everyone else's seemed to know better and just avoid. We spent a good two+ hours letting our dogs explore while we talked to all of the friendly visitors to the community. All of which did not mind the fact that our dogs wanted to explore their rooms also. :) Overall, I think Changing Tides was even better than expected. And for anyone traveling from outside the area, it is about a five minute walk from John's Pass, which has everything you would need for an extended stay and it's about a 2 minute walk to our gorgeous Gulf beaches!
