It’s impossible to be bored when you stay at the Palms of Treasure Island 409. Whether you want to laze on the pristine beach that’s just down the block or sail along the Intracoastal Waterway, paddleboard in the Gulf of Mexico or splash in a solar-heated pool, you can do it all—and more—when you make this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo your home base.
Less than a half-hour’s drive from St. Petersburg, the Palms of Treasure Island hugs the famed Intracoastal Waterway. From your condo’s large covered balcony, you can watch boats sail along the serene waters as seabirds soar across the sky; perhaps you’ll spy dolphins at play as well. You’ll also have a view of the complex’s pool, sundeck, and lush grounds dotted with palm trees. The balcony is furnished with a table and chairs; there’s no better place to sip your morning coffee and watch the sunrise.
The sliding glass doors that connect the balcony to the living/dining area enable you to admire the view while seated inside on the sofa, settee, or armchair. When you’re not gazing outside, you can watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable, surf the web via the free WiFi, or play Jenga with the kids.
Although dining out on the balcony among the salt-kissed breezes is delightful, you can take your meals indoors too. The Palms of Treasure Island 409’s dining table seats 6 people easily, and there’s room for 4 at the adjacent breakfast bar. On the opposite side of the breakfast bar is the kitchen. It’s equipped with everything from oven and stove to microwave and coffeemaker, not to mention cookware and tableware galore. There’s also a dishwasher, and the unit has its own washer and dryer.
Because there’s so much to see and do in and around the Palms of Treasure Island, getting a great night’s sleep is especially important. The 2 bedrooms make it easy to do just that. It’s tough to say which is the most pampering of the master suite’s amenities: the lofty king-size bed or the jetted tub in the en-suite bathroom. The bedroom also has a flat-screen TV, as does the 2nd bedroom. Because the 2nd bedroom includes a queen-size bed, the Palms of Treasure Island 409 can host 2 couples as comfortably as it can a family. There’s a 2nd full bathroom as well, which will make mornings much less hectic. And if extra guests come by, they can sleep in the living area, as the sofa converts into a bed for 2.
The Palms of Treasure Island’s pool, which offers broad steps for easy access, faces the Intracoastal. While splashing in the water or lazing on a poolside chaise, you can look out beyond the waterway to Paradise Island on the opposite side. From the pool it’s just a few paces to the complex’s dock, where you can launch a kayak, reel in redfish, or enjoy a close-up view of the manatees and dolphins that frequent the area. Should you get lucky and haul in a great catch, you can barbecue it on one of the complex’s outdoor grills and savor it in the picnic area.
From the condo you can walk to sugar-white Treasure Island Beach and the Gulf of Mexico in less than 5 minutes. Because this beach is rarely crowded, you should have no problem finding the perfect spot to spread out your blanket. When you’re not basking in the sunshine you can swim, paddleboard, parasail, canoe, kayak, or bodysurf in the waves. Treasure island Beach also has volleyball nets, a play area for kids, and a paved walkway.
We haven’t even mentioned the pleasures of John’s Pass Village, also within walking distance, or Tropicana Field, the Dalí Museum, the Chihuly Collection, and the other attractions of nearby St. Petersburg. You’ll just have to see them for yourself! So, book your stay at the Palms of Treasure Island 409 today, and get ready for the ultimate Florida getaway.
