Property description


Welcome to “The Shore Thing”, condo #318, at the Island Inn Resort on Treasure Island. Located directly on the beach, with nothing but sand between you and the Gulf's glistening waters. If you’re looking for stunning views, incredible sunsets and endless stretches of sandy beach and sparkling water, all at an affordable price; you’ve arrived.

Let the waves lull you to sleep; watch the passing dolphins frolic; relax on the sand; play in the warm Gulf; or enjoy the resort’s year-round heated beachfront pool. Clean and comfortable, this fresh and updated condo can accommodates up to three adults (or two adults and two small children) with a king-sized bed and pullout full-size sofabed.

Featuring a private balcony facing Treasure Island's magnificent seashore, this 3rd floor studio efficiency has recently been painted and updated with many extras.
The efficiency kitchen includes a dining table for four, a full size fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, blender, 2 burner stovetop, countertop oven, dishes/cutlery, and a full complement of pots and pans. The bathroom has a shower/tub combo. The separate bath vanity features a wall-mounted magnifying mirror and hair dryer. All your towels/beach towels and linens are supplied, along with an iron/ironing board, laundry basket and other amenities.

For your indoor entertainment there’s a flat screen TV, Cable, free Wifi, DVD/VCR player (including a large variety of DVDs), family card/games and a varied selection of paperback books and magazines. For your outdoor needs we provide beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards and sand/water toys. Additionally, in an effort to be a bit ‘greener’, The Shore Thing offers a Britta filtered pitcher system and a complimentary cloth shopping bag – great for groceries or to carry your ‘stuff’ to the beach. Other eco-friendly features include a bamboo fabric mattress top, and organic cotton, allergy-relief pillow coverings.

Along with its beachfront pool, Island Inn Resort features two boat docks/fishing piers, free parking, a poolside Tiki Bar, patio area, outdoor showers, BBQ grills and beach volleyball courts. The lobby offers an ATM, complimentary coffee and a computer station. A coin laundry facility is located on the resort’s 2nd floor. Nearby you’ll find everything you need: Publix grocery, restaurants (including the renowned Caddy’s, a 3 minute walk down the beach), unique shops and the Suncoast Trolley to take you up and down the Islands.

With direct access to the Gulf and the Inter Coastal waters, Treasure Island is a hidden gem of the Tampa Bay Area. This is fun, flip-flop, ‘funky’ Florida living at its best! But for those in the mood to explore, St. Petersburg, just over the causeway, offers something for every age and interest – indeed, it made the NY Times top places to visit in 2014! Slightly further is the thriving city of Tampa, home of Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, Tampa international airport. Beyond that, Orlando (Disneyworld, Universal Studio) is just a 90-minute drive away.

Perfect for a short vacation or a longer getaway – whether a family trip, romantic escape, chillin’ with friends or some quiet time alone – we believe your stay at The Shore Thing will be all that you hope for (and more!)
