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...

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...

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,...

Walking distance to the beach and John's Pass. It was a great vacation for my husband and I. We have already booked our next stay this time for two...

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...

I found out about Changing Tides Cottages on the Internet. Everything about the reviews indicated that this was just the place my husband and I were looking for to relax. We also were in need of a pet friendly location so our little Molly could come with us. On the way down from New Jersey, I wondered if I made...

This was a wonderful place for a quiet retreat. The cottages are clean, comfortable and well stocked. The full kitchen had a full size coffee pot, oven, and fridge. I stayed in the Nature Cottage, which was right on the water, and had it's own porch. Very big dog friendly....my 120 lb Mastiff loved it too! Kathy runs a great...

We've been coming here for years. It's a wonderful oasis on a quiet canal, across from a small marina. It's in a residential neighborhood, away from the busy Gulf Blvd, but a short walk to beautiful Madeira Beach and near John's Pass and Publix, etc. The last two years we've brought our dog with us. She loves it, too. Not...
