About the property

Charming 2BR 1.5BA Cottage About 50 Steps To Beach Access

This beautiful beach cottage is the quintessential Florida beach house! Come relax & play on the white sand beaches of Treasure Island in Pinellas County. Family friendly Sunshine Beach on Treasure Island is located south of Clearwater Beach and Madeira Beach, and just north of St. Pete Beach. Enjoy beautiful sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico, wonderful restaurants and endless activities - many within walking distance or accessible via the local trolley (trolley stop less than 100 feet away). Also available is “free beach ride”, a local service providing rides for tips. Restaurants range from beach casual to seaside elegance. Boat rentals, paddle board and kayak rentals, put-put golf, museums, parasailing, arcade (for that rare rainy day) charter fishing, bike rentals and the Treasure Island Beach Trail are just a few of the nearby activities. The Tampa Bay Rays game is only a 10-15 minute drive in downtown St. Petersburg.

Located on the west side (beach side) of Gulf Boulevard, so no busy streets to cross to get to the beach (don't settle for the east side of Gulf Blvd.)! Sea-grape canopied beach access is only steps from the backyard. Popular John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk (dining/shopping/entertainment) is just over a quarter-mile away.

Treasure Island is known as the sand sculpture capital of Florida, and hosts the annual Kite Festival & Sport Kite competition (one of the largest in the US). Beach was freshly renourished in Spring of 2018 and is now huge!

This updated and comfortably furnished house is situated on a large lot, has 2 bedrooms, 1 ½ baths and easily sleeps 4, with one queen bed and two twin beds. Amenities include ample parking (which is a premium on Treasure Island), Wi-fi, HD cable, DVD player, kitchen stocked with pots/pans and dishes, Keurig coffee maker, washer & dryer, bed linens, towels for bath and separate ones for beach, and use of beach cart/beach chairs/beach toys. Rinse off in the enclosed outdoor shower, grill the catch of the day, and relax on the covered deck.

Come unwind and spend your vacation at Sunshine Beach Cottage - book now before calendar fills up!

About Stacie

Owners have lived in the bay area for more than 40 years, and recently purchased this beautiful beach house after looking for the perfect property for years. Beaches and boats are our life, and our kids are following suit. We appreciate and preserve the natural beauty with which we are blessed in our area - and we love a great meal and entertainment.

Stacie purchased this house in 2017

Why Stacie chose Treasure Island

Location, location, location. Treasure Island is one of, if not the most, beautiful beach on the west coast of Florida. And if you are going to the beach, then stay by the beach! Make life easy! No busy roads to cross to get the the beach. Entertainment, restaurants, bars, surf shops, ice cream shops, and endless activities are all nearby. Very close to famous John's Pass. We have a stop for the local trolley that is only about 100 feet away!

What makes this house unique

Many lots on the beach side of Gulf Boulevard are quite small - some are only big enough to park a car, maybe two. Not an issue for this beach house. We have abundant paved parking on the back of the property. We also have an enclosed outdoor shower to rinse off after getting back from the beach. Well maintained with a beach cottage vibe.

Our trip to Treasure Island

  • 5 of 5

Although we were there to take care of some personal business over the long Labor Weekend, we did get to spend a little time at the beach thanks to Stacie and her husband who allowed us to stay beyond the 12 p.m. checkout time. We had two questions for them and they answered our calls immediately. The cottage was exceptionally clean and nice. We would recommend one thing, switch the two bedrooms and otherwise we had a fantastic stay and highly recommend this cottage.

We had a wonderful stay! The beach house is so comfortable and inviting. We started to relax the minute we stepped through the door. It was so helpful having beach chairs, toys and umbrellas provided. The walk to the beach is just around the corner and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets. Walking around John's Pass was also an enjoyable way to spend an evening and it is nice that you can walk there from the house. The covered, back porch was a nice place to read, visit with the family and listen to the rain. All the special touches in the house were also greatly appreciated!! We will have many treasured memories from this trip. Thank you!!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay and this cute little cottage. It’s right next to the beach which is a plus for our family. Having the outdoor shower was also a plus after beach time. The owners were nice and even had a gift for our little girl when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again.

Cute and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for my husband and I to share. The house was clean and well stocked. The beach is steps away. ST Johns pass is completely walkable from the house which has awesome restaurants and tourist attractions! We are looking forward to staying here again!
