Experience a Taste of Old Florida

Waterfront MotelsChanging Tides Cottages is the perfect pet-friendly waterfront vacation rental in Madeira Beach, FL. We said we ‘accept pets,’ but we mean that we accept all-sizes of pets. Your big dog, no matter what breed, is not too large to come stay with us! Your pups may be with you along the waterfront, on the docks, on your covered deck or patio – off-leash – just like they would be at home. The only restriction is that your pet is friendly to both people and other animals. Changing Tides Cottages IS your home away from home for relaxing with your furry friends. We are an enclosed compound so your canine companions can be safe with you off-leash on the grounds.
Our beachfront bungalow rentals provide a wide array of amenities, from fully-equipped kitchens, covered patios, and decks, to picnic tables and gas grills. We try to keep our cottages well-stocked for serving as your home away from home.
We offer 180 feet of waterfront amidst common areas, lush with tropical landscaping and vegetation. Our covered gazebo area with ample seating allows our guests to gather in a relaxed, intimate setting situated about five feet from the harbor — the perfect spot for watching herons, gulls, cormorants, anhingas, dolphins, and manatee.
Our waterfront rentals are truly a hidden gem of a vacation spot for you and your pets!
