Description from owner

We recently began renting this property in June 2016. Please look up Gulf Gardens Resort in Madeira Beach, FL on TripAdvisor for additional reviews!

Our cozy cottage is perfect for the couple or the small family of 4! This is a small 1 bedroom/ 1 bath unit but features all of the comforts of home! The Bedroom has a queen size bed and the living room has a full pull out sleeper sofa. Decorated in a radical surf theme for the fun-loving vacationer, you will never want to leave! Bathroom has a shower only, no tub. There is also an onsite coin operated washer and dryer, just a short walk from the cottage.

The beach is directly across the street, just a few steps from the unit! There you can rent beach loungers, umbrellas and Stand up paddle boards! Or you can enjoy the 2 beach chairs and the small umbrella provided in the unit for your convenience. After a long day at the beach, relax in the private pool at Gulf Gardens. The pool is nestled amongst beautiful Florida landscaping and is very private and secluded. An onsite property manager also makes your check in and check out a breeze!

Many restaurants are nearby within walking distance or a very short drive including the restaurants and shops at John's Pass, only a 20 minute walk. Save some money and cook in the full size eat in kitchen...or if you prefer, cook out using one of the 2 BBQ grills near the pool.

Book today and enjoy all that Gulf Gardens and Madeira Beach have to offer!

“lots and lots of charm”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2017

i stayed in this darling cottage for nearly 4 months and it felt like home. cottage is decorated with lots of color and beachy cheer, has a little porch, private yard and cute picket fence, with parking just outside the fence and a friendly coffee shop just steps away. it's on a private street and across from the beach with its white sand and beautiful sunsets. A beach trolley runs up and down the beach to quickly take you to lots of places to eat, drink and enjoy music. The cottage is furnished with lots of beach chairs/towels/toys and plenty of kitchen appliances. You will love it.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Deborah for the wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here! I truly wish you could have stayed longer. I feel like you have become a friend to me over these last few months. Please keep in touch!

“Felt like home”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Carson Surf Shack. The cottage had everything we needed including items for the beach, free wifi, stocked kitchen, beautiful colors throughout including the feel of being at home. It is decorated with modern decor, of which we thought the huge 50s picture in the bedroom and the surf board in the living room were both awesome additions to the style of the cottage. The owner Michelle; was very accommodating and easy to work with. She kept in touch and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The property known as Gulf Gardens has a pool with a bbq/grilling area of which we used both areas while there. The entire property was lavishly manicured with lush gardens and cute garden decorations everywhere you looked; even had peppers and bananas growing along with native beautiful flowers and trees. Emory; the property manager was also very helpful and friendly. We will certainly be back.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for writing our first review. It's means a lot to us! Thanks for your kind words and we look forward to your return! We hope your son enjoyed his birthday!
