    3 happy dogs

    My 3 little dogs and I stayed at these cottages for 2 weeks. The freedom given to the pets, in the enclosed property was great, because they didn't have to be on their leashes there. The cottages were comfortable and clean. The people staying there were friendly and the owner, Kathy, was a complete joy to be around. The beach is about 2 blks away and so is John's Pass; one of my favorite places to walk around and shop and eat. Also dog friendly.

    What a great place to relax and unwind

    I stayed at Changing Tides with my BJ (terrier mix). We stayed in the efficiency. It was absolute heaven. I could see the water from the room, it was quiet even though there were other dogs and I have to say they keep it extremely clean, better than some high priced hotels I've been. If you have a dog and you want a great place to stay, stay here and take them to Fort Desoto dog beach. I will go back again for sure. Thank you Kathy and Robin!

    It's almost time to go back to a little slice of heaven on earth!

    I am just counting the days now until its time to return to Changing Tides Cottages! This will be my eighth time to stay there for a week of pure pleasure. Sometimes it is just Eli and me (my little black Pom), and sometimes a friend joins me. I can;'t really explain adequately the feeling of "coming home" that Kathy gives to this little haven. I would just live there if I could. Just look at the pictures online and add a feeling of warmth and friendship and safety to all that beauty. Thank you, Kathy!

    Awesome Place to Stay!! Changing Tides

    (7/2015) My wife, our two dogs and I just spent our vacation at Changing Tides in Madeira Beach, Fl & we can't wait to return. You'll be greeted by Kathy and Ace and be welcomed as family. We loved the water views and just how quite and safe Changing Tides is. Changing Tides offers you cable tv, wifi & plenty of parking. With the full kitchen we were able to cook and eat at our cottage which saved us a ton of money. Changing Tides is extremely close to the beach, amazing places to eat and so much more. We would highly recommend Changing Tides and plan to visit again shortly.

    Changing Tides Cottages of Madeira Beach

    My husband & I were going to St Petersburg to look at a couple of boats & a friend suggested we stay at Changing Tides Cottages. We like to travel with our 9 pound Shih Tzu and finding decent accommodations are hard. When we met Kathy, the owner, she made it clear that our dog's experience was important as ours! The lovely, rustic cottages are older but well maintained. The furniture is comfy and counches are covered with soft, washable coverlets so your four legged family can make themselves at home. Only well behaved socialized dog-guests are accepted and are incouraged to be off leash on the fully gated property on the bay. Everyone has a private outside seating area and there's a community seating area with gas grills to cook on. Our dog seemed to know it was a safe place to be as he acted like he'd been there before! Kathy made us feel at home and we extended our stay an extra night. We walked the two blocks to John's Pass, the beautiful sunset on the white sandy beach accross the street and walking around the quaint neighborhood we were in. We will definately be back! And, oh yeah, we did buy a boat! Thanks again for everything, Kathy!!
