Property description

Cottage #1 at Gulf Sounds, the 'TREASURE' of Treasure Island beach cottages, is an easy, safe 30 yard stroll to the beach boardwalk and the pristine beaches of Treasure Island. Our bungalow/cottage is in a small, intimate resort and is very private. Yet, step outside the gate and you are a short walk from the middle of all the activities of Treasure Island and Madeira Beach. You can access the beach in less than a minute, or easily walk to World Famous John's Pass with its numerous fresh seafood restaurants, unique shops, ice cream parlors, chartered fishing boats,and waterfront bars. The Suncoast Beach Trolley stops at our corner, so you can visit all the beaches clear down to Clearwater for one low fare per day. A public boat ramp is located across the street.

Our charming Key West style 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage has almost 700 square feet and has been recently repainted and redecorated with new furnishings and appliances. Our cottage offers beautiful oak hardwood floors, a fully stocked kitchen, a tiled bath, a queen sleeper sofa, a love seat, a comfortable side chair, coffee and end tables in the living room, and seating for four in the dining area. Gulf Sounds is lushly landscaped and offers a covered patio and charcoal barbeque grill, a second floor sundeck, outside shower, and a fully fenced property that provides exceptional privacy.

We accept all Major Credit Cards as well as PAYPAL!!

Owner info

About the owner: We are both transplanted New Englanders - Angela from Gloucester, MA and Ken from Medford, MA - just outside Boston (Go Sawks). We've been married for 37 years and together for 41, yet we're only 48 - go figure (lol). We've lived in a number of states and traveled a bit, but always wanted to be near the water. Our new Granddaughter brought us to FL.

Why the Owner Chose Treasure Island:
As soon as we saw this cottage it felt like the beach we knew and loved. A bit of Key West, a touch of Cape Ann. And the best part - the beach is only steps away. It is a particularly wonderful stretch of beach - lots of shells for collectors, great fishing, we've never seen it crowded, and it's just a short walk to the water. It would seem that the number of people that have reserved time this year,and into next - who have been staying here for years speaks to the cleanliness of the cottage, the comfortable setting within the compound and the proximity to our wonderful stretch of beach. If that doesn't, our reviews certainly do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You don't need a car to access the full range of eateries, live music, deep sea fishing tours, boat rentals, parasailing, jet ski rentals, and so much more. Many options are available a short walk away at John's Pass. The Beach Trolley stops in front of Gulf Sounds and will take you up and down the beach or to the local supermarket - Publix - along Gulf Blvd. But the gem is our beach. Access is only steps away from the cottage.
