About the property

Discover why Guests of the Studio return Year after Year

Guests hold dear a secret that I'll share with you.

Stay at the beach in style…Our ideal location of being on the top floor lends itself to the higher ceilings that only top floor can provide. Direct unobstructed Gulf front facing, with a private balcony that overlooks the gulf in every direction. Take in World famous sunsets, dolphins at play, and an ocean of gulf activity right from your own oasis.

Studios unique ambiance is unparalleled in many ways. The enchanting sounds of the surf can be enjoyed for the simple fact of being out of hearing range of the pool,tiki-bar,and central elevators.

Many thanks to all my guests for their fun,and helpful reviews!

Scroll down to read Tips & Advise from previous guests: Sunsets were awesome. We also loved seeing dolphins right from our room!!

To find the best, and biggest shells you have to go in the water at least waist high, and feel with feet,catch,and pull up.

Check out Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach...neat Historical Hotel

Great early bird specials @ Salt Rock Grill,and JD's Seafood.Gators, open till 2:am. On Sunday nights, walk about 1/2 mile- beach drum circle. Visit Fort De Soto Park, and see dolphins off the fishing pier. Sloppy Joe's, Mother of all Mai Tai's. Ocean Breeze,Great Tapa's. Took Helicopter ride @ The Hanger in St.Pete. Ellenton Outlet Mall, if you have a rainy day. Loved the bed. Wi-fi is the best! It was great being able to look down on the beach...the best time to see dolphins(I think)is in the late afternoon.Hit the beach early or late in the day,so you can beat the heat. Sunscreen! Pinellas county doesn't sell liquor after 12:am,this surprised us, so purchase early. If you want cardio during your vacation,take the occasional stairway up & down to the beach/pool/car. I love the fact that you use method soap.That's awesome! We usually see dolphins in the early to mid-morning. Enjoy every minute you are here-it goes way too fast. Breath deep, and smile. Favorite Restaurant-Sea Critters-fabulous fresh fish.Try using the free golf cart rides from John's Pass to Passe-a-Grille.

Famous John's Pass Village: Within walking distance from the condo. Restaurants like Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Fishing excursions, jet ski, para-sailing rentals.

Laurie Engler purchased this studio in 2009

Why Laurie Engler chose Florida Central West

Proximity to the enchanting shoreline of any other property of its kind in Treasure Island. This direct Gulf front facing studio is within the property of the Island Inn beach resort condominium. Resorts address:9980 Gulf Blvd. Treasure Island, Florida 33706

Location is ideal to the Arts,culture,Historical sites,Boutiques,Local markets,Restaurants, Rentals for water sports

What makes this studio unique

Hello Beach! Direct Gulf front Studio, and a private beach balcony, with views of the beach on out past the horizon from within the studio itself are unforgetable. Having a wonderful Sixth(Top) floor location,besides being on the furthest end away from the pool and Tiki-Bar is perfect. Beach Chairs and Oversized beach towels are provided. Meticulously kept.

PERFECT Treasure Island week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at a Treasure Island. Beach chairs, cooler and umbrella made our stay so nice as we arrived via airplane. Something as simple as hangers for hanging our clothes was also appreciated😊 The room was tasteful decorated and gave a hint of being at home. We so enjoyed the beautiful sunsets that could be viewed daily from the balcony. What a wonderful week! Thanks so much for the accommodations!

Location was great, weather was great, condo was great. Disappointed with Customer Service!!!

  • 3 of 5

Overall our vacation to Treasure Island was great. The weather was amazing, the location was great, the building was clean. My only disappointment was once we returned home, and come to realize we lost the majority of our cleaning deposit/fee. When I inquired about the loss of deposit, I was told the toilet seat was broken and there were stains on a bath mat/towel. I assured Laura, the toilet seat was in good working condition when we left, and was unaware of the stains in the bath mat/towel. The stained towel I can accept, but did not necessarily agree upon. The toilet seat was definitely not broken - I was 100% sure of this. Unfortunately I did not have any photographic evidence to prove otherwise...not that I even thought I would require it. Our word against hers.

But as I mentioned earlier, overall our trip was great! Only to be disappointed by the lack of customer service and care once we arrived back home. Put a black mark on the end of our trip.

Owner's Response: In order to avoid misunderstandings such as this, please let me know if there is anything that you feel i should know about upon your arrival. Guests of my studio are more than customers to me since it is my private studio in which i am renting.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in this condo during a winter getaway. It was exactly as described and as the photos detailed. The condo is worth it for the balcony alone. My husband and I loved to sit out there any time of the day- morning with our coffee, relaxing in the afternoon and in the evenings to enjoy the sunset. The condo is within walking distance to restaurants and groceries. We would recommend Shrimpy's and the VIP Lounge... excellent meals and service. We would love to return to this condo at some point in the future, it was everything we could have hoped for!!
