Treasure Island cottage description

Kick off your shoes and enjoy a taste of old Florida in our charming beach cottage located on the beach side of Gulf Blvd. We are one of six individually owned units in Gulf Sounds and just a few steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Treasure Island has a sparkling white sand beach with clear blue-green waters. Our beach is closer to the water and quieter than the many of the busy hotel beach areas in Treasure Island. We are centrally located with many restaurants, shops, and activities within walking distance. There is a public boat ramp across the street and the beach trolley stop is on the corner.

Our bright and airy beach cottage is upstairs allowing you to take advantage of cool night breezes and to leave your windows open with no worries. It's quieter too since it is not on the street side of the complex. The unit is just under 700 sf and sleeps 6 with a queen bed in the master bedroom, twin beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The floors are original oak hardwood throughout except for tile in the kitchen and bath. The separate dining area seats four comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, etc.

Many activities are within walking distance (.8 miles) at John's Pass, including dining, night life, shopping, dinner and sunset cruises, parasailing, fishing, and jet ski rentals. There is also a paved 2 mile trail fronting on the beach for walking, riding bikes, or skating. Nearby St. Petersburg offers a multitude of shopping, dining and entertainment options. Favorite restaurants include the Middle Grounds Grill (upscale dinner), Foxy's Cafe (reasonably priced breakfast, lunch or dinner) and The Frog Pond (reasonably priced breakfast/brunch). Sea Hags is also reasonable and great for lunch or dinner and live music and dancing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a native Floridian (a rare breed!) and grew up in Gainesville, FL, just about 3 hours north of Treasure Island. I have always loved the beach and spent many summers going to the beaches on the East Coast of Florida. I discovered the beautiful beaches in this area a couple of years ago and fell in love! I moved to Treasure Island in May of 2012 and have enjoyed every minute of life in paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Treasure Island:
I like to experience the local culture and flavors when I travel. This cottage has the charm and history that represent a true Florida beach cottage. The beach is so close...a 2 minute walk without even crossing the street. The property has a casual, private and friendly feel. The central courtyard and covered patio area are completely enclosed by privacy fencing and offer a nice place to relax away from the sun.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I chose this unit because I liked the idea of being upstairs and having the ability to leave the windows open all the time for the wonderful breezes. This unit also is the only one with it's own private balcony and does not front on busy Gulf Blvd. A perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.
