“Slice of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The Island Paradise Cottages of Madeira Beach truly are a slice of paradise. Even before arriving, we knew we were in for something special with the quick and helpful responses from June, and friendly and personable correspondence. Upon arrival, being greeted by Bill and June was like being welcomed by family. You could tell the obvious love they have for their gorgeous property, and pleasure they get from sharing it with others. It wasn't like staying at an impersonal, generic hotel, but like escaping to a private retreat.

The cottage itself, the Sweet Jasmine, was absolutely perfect. They thought of everything when stocking it, and put so many small details into the decoration and furnishing of the cottage it was hard to leave. We already want to come back! We loved the pool and hot tub, and spent almost every evening at the Tiki Bar grilling our dinner in the most lush and tropical setting imaginable.

For those looking for a pet friendly retreat, I can't imagine any place more perfect. Bill and June made our 14 year old baby Chloe feel at home. If dogs have a bucket list, Chloe can check off visiting paradise. For those looking for a quiet escape, the Island Paradise cottages are perfect...close enough to the sights of Madeira and white sand beaches, but set off from the noise and traffic so you feel like the only thing on the agenda for the day is to relax.

Extremely laid back and cozy. Close enough to the beach to walk, yet far enough away so the nights were quiet. Cute and clean little cottages with all the modern comforts of home. Pretty landscape and you can tell Bob and June are very proud of this place. I enjoyed the little pool too, it is sectioned off and the hot tub area is really relaxing. June provides you great bathroom soap and shampoos, I even got sunscreen and a bath sponge. Air conditioning worked great, and my cottage had two ceiling fans. I highly recommend this place. I stayed for a week last year. I intend to stay longer this year.

My wife and I were looking for the perfect vacation get away. A place to relax from all of the City stress. Island Paradise is the perfect get away. The Cottages are beautiful and the owners are lovely people. We Loved the Tiki Bar and the Gas Grill. The Beach is just two short blocks away. We can not wait to return.

We recently stayed at Island Paradise Cottages and were more than happy with our stay. The apartments are extremely well furnished and equipped, it felt like we were living in the comforts of our own home while on vacation. We were able to just go grocery shopping and cook and enjoy having other options rather than just going out to eat for every meal. We were able to enjoy the weather outdoors, grill, meet other residents of the grounds and just have a great time. The Madeira Beach area is beautiful and the people extremely welcoming. We definitely intend to stay here again

Island Paradice Cottages was a perfect vacation spot. Great cottages, everthing you want or need is right there. The cottages and grounds are spotless and well mantained. June and Bill make you feel welcome and make sure you have everything you need for the perfect vacation. Medeira Beach is a relaxing quiet town weather you want to go out for dinner or just relax and barbeque something at your cottage. Island Paradise Cottages is a perfect location, right accross form the beach, a great neighborhood to walk in and close to resturants and shopping.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the porch at the skyview villa but most of the cottages have a porch to relax on.

We stayed here the summer of 2011 for 3 weeks.The owners June&Bill are very accommodating,friendly People you will ever meet. The Owners make you feel more like family. The cottages and the grounds are kept very clean....5**** all the way. i would only stay here if I return to Madeira Beach. The Beach is just a short walk..about 1/2 block. The White sand Beach is kept very clean. There is also night fishing near by....Johns Pass area.The restaurants in the area are also decent. If you like eating fresh Fish I would recommend Waltz Fish Shak.....its located right across from Johns Pass. Every day this place has different kinds of Fish on the menu. I f your looking for a very clean and Dog friendly place to stay Island Paradise is well worth the money. We will definitely be back again! Rose&Patty

Mad is local for Madeira Beach where I've been hanging out on & off for over 30 years. Island Paradise I consider to be my little hide away, We love to come down from Tennessee in spring & fall when able to for the perfect weather and perfect accommodations. We prefer low key, laid back places. Just because Island Paradise isn't fancy or huge doesn't mean it's not classy, everything I can think of is provided in their apartments. One can see the owners sense of design & taste just entering each apartment which are all unique. I love the white cotton robes, a pair of which are in each bedroom. From several years of staying with Bill & June I'm comfortable giving them a call if there is anything I need that's not provided in my unit. Everything outside is as nice as the inside of the units, it's a garden that is designed to live within. If our Black Lab-Chow "Booger" could recommend his ideal place to stay he would agree because we always feel relaxed, welcome and comfortable at Island Paradise.

Room Tip: The main differences in each unit is just the size. The only unit that stands out is sky view that i...
