What overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, is just a block from the beach and the Gulf of Mexico, and is less than a half-hour from St. Petersburg? The Palms of Treasure Island 309. And if the fabulous location isn’t enough of a draw, there’s also a solar-heated swimming pool on the grounds and a jetted tub in the en-suite master bathroom.
From your spacious covered balcony, you’ll have an incomparable view of the Intracoastal and Paradise Island just beyond. During the day you’re apt to see dolphins bobbing among the boats sailing past; at night the moon’s reflection in the quiet waters is blissfully serene. The balcony includes a dining table and chairs, so you can enjoy your meals out here.
Another spot for savoring alfresco meals is the Palms of Treasure Island’s barbecue area. If you reel in any grouper or snapper while on a fishing charter, you can cook it up on one of the charcoal grills and savor it at a picnic table among the beautifully manicured grounds.
Of course, you can dine indoors as well. In its open living/dining area, the Palms of Treasure Island 309 has a table that seats 6 in both comfort and style, as well as a breakfast bar with 4 cushioned stools. On the other side of the breakfast bar is the fully equipped kitchen. Whether it’s a full-size oven for making a Thanksgiving turkey, a coffeemaker for brewing a cup any time of day or night, or a blender for mixing milkshakes or margaritas, you’ll find it here. There’s a dishwasher too, because when the beach is just beyond your front door, you don’t want to spend time scrubbing plates. Likewise, the unit has its own washer and dryer—no wasting precious vacation time in a laundry room!
Sliding glass doors connect the living area of the Palms of Treasure Island 309 to the balcony; they also enable you to gaze outside while you kick back on the couch or the armchair. When you’re not admiring the view, you can watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable, surf the web via the free WiFi, or sprawl out on the carpet with the kids for a game of Uno. With its quiet color palette and laid-back decor, the living area is a wonderfully restful place to return to after a day on the go.
The 2 bedrooms are equally restful. Each includes a lofty queen-size bed and a flat-screen TV for late-night viewing. The master suite has its own private bathroom with a pampering jetted tub. There’s a 2nd full bathroom as well. Having a bathroom for each bedroom will make it so easy for everyone to get ready and out the door in the morning.
Once you’re in your bathing suit and ready to go, you face an important decision: Should you swim in the Palms of Treasure Island’s pool or in the Gulf of Mexico? From the pool and its surrounding sundeck, you have a front-row view of the Intracoastal; in fact, the pool is only feet from the complex’s private dock. When you’re not swimming or sunbathing you can stroll along the waterway for a close-up look at the dolphins and manatees that frequent the area.
The gulf and Treasure Island Beach are only a 2-minute walk from the complex. Known for its sugary sands, the beach includes a play area for the kids and a paved walkway that’s ideal for a sunset stroll. Treasure Island Beach is something of a hidden gem, so you should be able to swim, kayak, parasail, or race jet skis free of crowds.
For a change of pace, drive into St. Petersburg. The Palms of Treasure Island is only a few blocks from the causeway that connects the island to the mainland, so you can reach the Dalí Museum, Tropicana Field, the Sunken Gardens, and other attractions in less than a half-hour.
