Just got back from a long weekend at "The Cottages at Madeira Beach". We stayed in #7, the 2 bedroom cottage. I always book my vacations via VRBO or Homeaway and stumbled upon these by accident when another property I was interested was not available. Janet, the owner, suggested her cottage as it was near the beach, pet friendly and had a private pool. First impression- cute and quaint- well kept property on the outside..the inside was immaculate...Although a dog owner myself I am always a little worried that a pet friendly property will smell like a dog or not be quite as nice....well that could not be further from the truth here....the cottage was spotless and nicely decorated..the furniture clean...and the property/cottage well stocked with the necessities...there were two couples and two dogs in my party and we had enough room so as not to feel cramped...the king sized bed in the master was super comfortable and the air bed in the other bedroom, although something I'd never experienced, was a pleasant surprise. We never ran out of hot water when we all four had back to back to showers after a day at the beach. The pool area was very private and clean too. With lots of lighting for a night swim. I'd liken it to a swim spa as there were seats around the edge inside the pool to sit and relax while catching some rays. The walk to the beach was less than five minutes and the beach itself is beautiful. Also close and safe enough to go for a night walk on the beach too. All in all I could write for days about how much we all enjoyed our stay. We felt right at home and will definitely be back. Definitely a nice surprise.....
