This privately-owned property is conveniently located within close walking distance of John’s Pass shopping and dining district and several Street-side restaurants on Gulf Blvd. We booked here based upon the reviews and the owner’s statements about pet friendliness. We have a new puppy and neither of us had any experience traveling with a pet. The property is indeed pet friendly....

My husband and I along with our dog Toby had such a wonderful time at Changing Tides Cottages last year that we spent two week this December. We also brought my daughter and her family to our piece of paradise for a week. Cathy and Renee along with Ace are the best hosts anyone could ask for. The cottages are...

This was our first time staying at Changing Tides Cottages and we really enjoyed our stay. We were so excited to find a place that is pet-friendly! The entire property is gated, so our dog was able to walk around without a leash as long as he stayed with us. The units are very old and the owners have done...

Wonderful place to stay. Very dog friendly. Owners concerned with your satisfaction. Checks on you frequently to be sure you have everything you need. Fenced in so your dog can roam around free.

We have stayed here twice and will be back again and again. Is that enough of an endorsement for you? Now as you undoubtedly have read in other reviews this is not your corporate hotel. It's a great mom and pop, no thrills, love to stay here place. Just see my picture to see how great it is.

I just love these cottages. Kitchens are fully equipped with everything you would need. The beds are comfortable. Its so nice to just sit on the porch in the evenings, quite and peaceful. The owner is just as sweet as she can be.

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...

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!

We just came back from spending three nights at Changing Tides Cottages. We were very pleased. Everything was neat and clean. The kitchen was well supplied. 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...
