On a closer note,another suggestion is 10.4 miles away, another legendary golf course, Bardmoor Golf and Tennis Club.

Arnold Palmer, Payne Stewart, Fred Couples and Tom Kite are some of the great players who have played here, the course is a good test for the stars!

Treasure Island, is just what the name suggest, a beautiful treasured island! My family and I bought our first condo in the Birdsong in the late 1980's. The small town friendly atmosphere with the convenience and excitement of the city a few miles away. Our beautiful treasured island is waiting for you to relax and enjoy!

Why Jeanne chose Treasure Island

Combine all of that with the home like feel you have in our condo make your benefits most unique!! We have 3 listing with VRBO, all in the Birdsong.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dussy I tried 2 times to put in a nice review and each time it keeps kicking back saying I was being to "location specific"??? We enjoyed it so much and just the peace and quite for my wife and I was amazing. Yes we intend on returning to the same spot. We loved it and you are such a gracious host. You let us do our thing and relax but you are so friendly we would have enjoyed spending some time speaking to you more.

Birdsong #23 condo review from Clementine

  • 4 of 5

I have to say my spouse and I had a pleasant stay at this one bedroom beach side apartment. The bed was king sized and very comfortable. A+ BED. The bathroom was basic and a bit old but who needs luxury in the toilet. It flushed well and shower had good pressure. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils and appliances to make cooking effortless. A+ blender for magarita and drink making. Living room with large comfortable sectional leather couch and flat screen TVs in living room and bedroom. Mirrors in abundance if you like checking yourself out :) and it is in a quiet location. The beach is beautiful and a walk away, the pool is next door and it's comfortable and clean. Beautiful sunset. Location is centrally located, 30-40 minutes from st. Petes, Sarasota, tampa, Clearwater. Ahhh! I could go on but needless to say, for the affordable price, this was money well spent and we'll be back. We left fully relaxed. Dussy thanks for sharing your property with us. It was home away from home. If you're looking for luxury, this is not for you. If you're looking for comfort and relaxation with simplicity and convenience, try this place out. It's also walking distance from Publix and good restaurants

After reading some negative reviews, i will admit i was abit nervous about our stay....but it great. Its not a 5 star with towels provided by the pool or a bartender there to serve you, however for the cost it was more than enough. If i had to list a negative it would only be, having to go next door to use their pool.

Management was overly accomodating (leaving our room key with a relative also staying there) and not collecting payment till our third day. Both beds were comfortable and the apartment was clean. The laundry facilities was always available as well.

We stayed at the bottom apartment closest to the road and we found it very quiet. The walk to the beach was a bit long but we were able to use the wagon provided by the motel to bring things back and forth.

We love Florida and always enjoy everyone's thank you for making our stay so pleasant.

Don't waste your money! Filthy dirty condo!

  • 1 of 5

Never stay at this place - EVER!!! I rented what I thought was an "ocean front condo" and when I arrived it turned out to be a side unit facing a motel. I tried to make the most of it and not let the girls see my disappointment. When we got into our condo it wasn't ready (even though I told the owner I was arriving prior to check in time and she ensured it would be ready). Again, I tried to not let this get me down and I took the girls to the beach while it was cleaned. Later that day I had to call and ask for ant traps because my bedroom was filled with ants everywhere (including in the bed). The owner downplayed the food crumbs on the floor and laid traps. The listing on vbro was very misleading and the condo was filthy. Couldn't open the windows because they were boarded up with hurricane plexiglass, no dishwasher, no toilet paper or paper towels, and the pool is shared with another condo :( all of this aside I tried to make the best of it based On The fact we would be outside and only showering and sleeping there. Well today our air conditioner went out. I contacted the manager and she told me she was at work. She then told me she wasn't going to pay someone to come out because she could fix it herself. The condo smelled like burning plastic and was 84 degrees inside - it was 89 degrees outside. She ensured me she would be there between 5-530 to fix the AC. I sat and waited and sweated my ass off waiting with my kids (who were miserable) until 7:15 when I finally texted her to see if she was even coming. She finally showed up, walked straight into my condo and didn't even acknowledge me or my kids. She went straight to the vent which was duct taped to the ceiling tiles only to tell me she could move me to a smaller and in her words "not as nice" condo. I told her I already packed my stuff and found a new condo to stay in for the remainder of my trip. I also expressed my dissatisfaction with all the things listed above and she took out her cell phone and started taping me and my kids. I called the police to have her video removed from her phone and was told they could t do anything because it was a civil matter. She refused to even work with me in providing a credit of any kind for my displacement/discomfort. She wasn't able to fix the AC and NEVER even apologized to me or my kids. She walked away from me as I was speaking to her and then got in her car and left.

Owner's Response: The normal check in time is anytime after 4:00pm the check out time is by 11:00 am. The renter posting this complaint arrived between 11 am & 12 pm (informing someone you will be arriving early does not give entitlement to check in before check in time). She arrived by the super shuttle along with her boyfriend, her two young daughters and their luggage, I told them they could set their luggage inside the condo while the cleaning was completed. They brought their luggage in, stayed about 30 minutes changing their clothes then went out. I hurriedly finished cleaning the floor around their open luggage. When the renter initially inquired about a reservation, she was inquiring about condo # 27 (the ONLY "ocean front condo" rental we have in the building),she was informed it was not available for the dates she had requested but we had 2 others available, one was beach view and the other was not. Mid way during their reservation she called around 4 pm to say the air conditioner was not working. I was at work and told her I couldn't come at that time, but would be there as soon as I could. I told her it maybe due to condensation and the safety switch could be thrown, which I could reset. If that did not fix the problem I would call a repairman in. I also told her, I could relocate them downstairs while the repair was made if a repairman was needed. I was not able to get there until between 7:00 & 7:30pm. I greeted her 2 daughters, her boyfriend and her (she was in the kitchen) as I entered the condo. I reset the switch that did not fix the problem, I told them I had to call the repairman in but they could stay downstairs until the repair was made. The boyfriend informed me, the renter was very mad and they had rented a place next door. He said she wanted their money back. I told them there would be no refund and they were welcome to stay. The rental condos are ALL the same size, the one I was temporarily moving them into did not have a view of the beach, they did not ask to see it. I did video their irrational behavior, only to show the owner that I had tried to satisfy the renter. I left because I had to go back to work. The repairman fixed the air conditioner and the condo has and will remain empty for the duration of their reservation (2 days). Another renter in the building informed me, the angry renter had earlier in the week said she would next year rent an efficiency next door, even though it was smaller because it was less expensive.

We are in Florida with no place to stay.

  • 1 of 5

If you have ever tried to find a place in February and/or March on the gulf in Florida, it is extremely difficult. We have used VRBO for many years. Because the rental owner had our contact information from last year, they contacted us at the end of January 2015 to see if we would be interested in renting a unit at Birdsong for March 2015. We agreed to rent the first two weeks in March and immediately paid the two weeks rental amount in full. We were on the first leg of our trip visiting relatives in central Florida. Five days prior to our arriving at Birdsong, we realized that we had not been given the code to get into the rental unit so we emailed the owner. They responded the next day (four days prior to our arrival) that due to emergency surgery of the rental manager, our reservation would have to be cancelled. We were offered to reschedule for the last two weeks in March 2015 or a full refund with an apology for our inconvenience. We are sorry for the emergency surgery but Birdsong has several units. We wonder what that had to do with our particular rental unit for the first two weeks in March 2015. When our original plans were made, we purchased spring training tickets in advance and purchased insurance in case WE had to cancel. We asked for reimbursement for these expenses but received no response from the rental manager regarding these additional charges we incurred. Now we had two options, cut our vacation short by two weeks or take time out of our visit with relatives in central Florida to try and look for other accommodations on the gulf. We were able to get one last room at the Doubletree in N. Redington Beach and spent a wonderful week there. While in N. Redington Beach, we drove by Birdsong and the private parking lot was full. We were so hopeful that Birdsong would be a winter repeat retreat for us but this experience has left us cold.

This was an awesome condo!!! Everyone who was renting or living in these condos were so friendly. You can rent a cabana on beach that keeps you from taking heavy beach chairs to beach. But light weight ones were available for renters if needed for free. Condo was decorated nice and it is ocean view can watch sunset from the balcony. Sunset were wonderful!!! This area is very laid back and family friendly the beach is nice for toddler because is not a rough at Atlantic Ocean and water is clear and beautiful!! Already planning my next trip!!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Birdsong! The condo was beautiful, well decorated, clean and comfortable. The location of the condo was perfect! Close to shopping, Publix and restaurants. We spent most of the time going to Caddy's and Ricky T's. It was great to be able to walk to everything! The view from the balcony was incredible! Beautiful sunsets! We will definitely return! One suggestion for the owner...I would put a notebook in the condo so guests can rave about their great vacations there! :)
