About the property

Cottage, 1-Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3


Changing Tides Cottages offers a charming pet-friendly one-bedroom cottage nestled along 180' of Boca Ciega Harbor. Complimentary wi-fi, kayaks, and fishing.

Local trolley and buses gets you anywhere along all the beaches. One block to a lovely white-sand Gulf beach - 2 blocks to John's Pass Village with terrific restaurants, shops, and daily charter fishing and tour boats. It is also fun to hang dock-side for people and wildlife watching. Dolphin, manatee, and birds including herons, roseate spoonbills, storks, egrets, and a multitude of additional shore birds can all be visitors.

Along with DOLPHINS and MANATEES, the pastels sunsets from your front yard make you think twice to leave the property!

If unwinding is on your agenda, this is The Place......

About Kathy Behrmann

I purchased Changing Tides Cottages the day the realtor was putting up the For Sale sign. I told him to take it down: I was buying it. I was that certain that Changing Tides had a future as a lovely place for people to visit this harbor-front, 1-block-from-the-beach area of the Central Gulf Coast of Florida.

Kathy Behrmann purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Kathy Behrmann chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

It had character, charm, privacy in the midst of a city, ambiance, and water access that really draws people.

What makes this cottage unique

Water, beach, boating, kayaking, wildlife, birds, manatee, dolphin, great fishing -- all with a quiet casualness that includes your entire family -- even your pets. Also, while you can go to terrific restaurants, you can just as easily cook / grill your own meals. People who come to Changing Tides are ready to relax, enjoy, and have a good time -- in short, easy to be around. What a pleasure to travel with your pet and have him or her with you, on the grounds, and be able to safely be off leash.
