My daughter lives in St Pete so I visit Florida quite often. I recently returned from my second stay @ Changing Tides and I would highly recommend this type of accommodation over the Five-Star experience. Neither time have I had my dogs with me but it seems that most families do bring them along. All dogs I have met there... More

What a fabulous place!! Owner is incredibly courteous and exemplifies excellent customer service. Awesome location, close to many sites but yet quiet and peaceful. Being able to have our pups with us was a bonus. Plan ahead as cottages book up quickly!

Our dogs loved exploring between the cottages and meeting Ace the resident dog. The beach was a short walk as well as John's Pass Village.It was nice sitting with a glass of wine watching... More

We were welcomed by the friendly maintenance man, Mark and his yellow lab Eli. Changing Tides is more than a dog-friendly cottage rental company, they cater to dogs and their families. This is definitely a retreat that Dexter and I can get behind. Our family of 3 stayed in the Southwest Cottage. This 2 bedroom dog-friendly cottage had a queen... More

This is our second night so far and we LOVE it! Perfect little cottage with the cutest patio in a fully enclosed very dog friendly garden community. There are kayaks to use, grills, coolers, an outdoor shower, lots of beautiful comfy seating everywhere and even dog toys and water bowls complimentary with our stay. The owner is very laid back...

We we're at Changing Tides recently with our pup, Toby - what a wonderful place for dog lovers!! Cute cottages with 1 or 2 bedrooms on the water. Renee & Kathy along with their dog, Ace are the perfect hosts. We made lots of friends (human and canine)! Mark, a snow bird who spends the winter there was especially friendly... More

I just returned from two weeks in the Fishing Cottage (#3) and I absolutely loved it. I was travelling alone and it had everything I needed. It is such a beautiful, peaceful place, the view from the deck is to die for, Boca Ciega Bay and the marina across the bay. I watched boats, kayaks, paddle boarders come and go,... More

Our stay at Changing Tides Cottages in Madeira Beach was awesome. Christmas lights and decorations all around made it so festive. The view was beautiful and you could fish right off their docks. Kayaks were available whenever you wanted!! The quaint, themed, no frills cottages have everything you need. The owners and staff on site made sure everything was just... More
