“Cozy winter break get-a-way!!”

I have stayed at other places in the Madeira beach area, but this cottage has it all! Decorated in the surfer style, it was charming and comfortable;having a separate bedroom with full-size bed, not a Murphy bed is a big plus.Fully stocked kitchen is great when you choose to dine in.Front porch has chairs , and you can see a slice of the sky at sunset! Directly across the street from the beach access.The property has a nice pool area.Steps from the trolley stop, minutes to grocery stores,restaurants.The on-site manager is always helpful.The owners went out of their way to make sure my stay was hassle-free.Would highly recommend this property, and will book this property again.

“Cute little cottage”

We stayed at this cute little cottage at the beggining of December and we had a blast! Place is comfortable, clean and has everything you can possibly need and more! Location couldn’t be better as it’s across the street from white sand beach and a walking distance from pubs and restaurants.
Owners are the nicest people you can imagine, very responsive to all your needs and requests.
We had a wonderful time, thank you for everything, we will be back for sure!

“Wonderful place to stay when at the beach, highly recommended”
Reviewed 21 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed at this little gem September 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's a one bedroom beach hut/shack type apartment, with a pull down sofa in the living room for an extra bed and a small bathroom with a shower. The bed's really comfortable, which is important to me, as I’m registered disabled with a spinal problem, but slept really well here.

Carson’s Shack is an older style place, which we personally found to be lovely, quirky and it’s been very well kept. It’s proximity to the beach is very good and there’s plenty to do and see locally as well.

This place is ideal for a couple and it has all you need for a no a frills, comfortable stay. It’s very clean and has a well stocked kitchen area with a fridge/freezer, oven, microwave and a small eating table; which is more than sufficient to enable anyone to dine in if wanting too.

There are TV’s in the living room and bedroom and there’s good WIFI there as well.

The complex has a great pool and a barbecue area for a cook out and there’s also a convenient little laundry area too.

It is just across the road from the beach and also close to St Petes, Tampa, Clearwater and only an hours drive over to Busch Gardens for a day out, should you want something a bit more exciting than the beach for a change. Go and check out John’s Pass too; it’s only a 5 min drive away, where there’s a fab little boardwalk to explore, with cute shops and lots of good restaurants. There are always dolphins out fishing, along with many pelicans and herons as well, so there’s plenty to watch whilst enjoying a scrumptious ice cream, if you’re lucky!

Michelle the owner, is very friendly and she answered any questions we had before we booked, very promptly and her Shack is very reasonably priced too. What more could you want!

We would definitely stay at Carson’s Shack again if ever in the Madeira Beach area.

My family of four had and had an amazing time in this cottage. We were pleased by the central location, the lovely decor, and amenities this unit offered. The beds were very comfortable, and the pool area exceeded our expectations. We cannot wait to come back! We highly recommend Carson's Surf Shack!!!

This place was so cute and quaint! It is in a great location! Yes you have to walk across the street to the beach, but it is just that, a very short walk. Love the decor, and it is supplied with all the necessities, even boogie boards!
