Property description

** When you call, reference this unit code SHC9 or Seahorse Cottage 9 **

Seahorse Cottage 9 - "Surfin' U.S.A." - Seahorse Cottage 9 is a rustic three bedroom 1st floor apartment, named after the Beach Boys' hit "Surfin' U.S.A.". This is our largest and most spacious apartment. Framed lyrics and splashes of this theme decorate this nostalgic getaway. The main living space includes a sofa, new flat screen TV, basic kitchen & dinette and separate dining table & chairs. The master bedroom features a king size bed. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed and an adjoining bathroom. Counting the 3rd bedroom bunk room, this unit sleeps 6. All new linens and bedding dress the bedrooms, providing a fresh feel and look to the yesteryear backdrop.

The Seahorse Cottages are some of the true "treasures" of Treasure Island. Built in 1938, these quaint cottages were amongst the first structures on the beaches of Treasure Island. A tribute to "Olde Florida" ~ reminiscent of bygone days ~ treasures nestled right in the sugary white sand of the Gulf of Mexico, awaiting your discovery. History and nostalgia unite in these quintessential beach cottages which literally sit right on the powder fine sand. We invite you to stay at Seahorse Cottages and enjoy a truly relaxing, laidback vacation right on the beach. Ranked #2 for Specialty Lodging in Treasure Island, the Seahorse Cottages property is made up of 4 free-standing cottages as well as 5 apartments. Our accommodations include an efficiency (Cottage #5), one bedrooms (Cottage #4, Apartments #1, #6, #7 & #8) and two bedrooms (Cottages #2 & #3 and Apartment #9). The rustic wood interiors display knotty pine walls & ceilings and provide an inviting, cozy beach retreat. All units feature casual cottage furnishings, air conditioning, cable, free Wi-Fi, 32" flat screen TV, full kitchen with basic cooking supplies, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave oven, towels and linens.

Two beachfront pavilions provide a little shade for a break from the rays or an ideal picnic spot. For your comfort and convenience, there are picnic tables, chairs, lounges, fire pit and grills for "those lazy crazy hazy days of summer", not to mention all the other seasons of the year. This nostalgic getaway is sure to lull you back in time. In fact, some patrons have been vacationing here since they were kids and now bring their own families.

Proclaiming "Come on let's twist again like we did last summer!", swing into Cottage 1 ~ "Let's Twist Again". If "it seems like years since it's been clear", reserve your spot at Cottage 2 ~ "Here Comes the Sun".Waste no time tweedle-lee-deeing in bookin' your vacation, "go rockin' robin 'cause we're really gonna rock tonight" at Cottage 3 ~ "Rockin' Robin". For those hunks of burning love looking for an intimate romantic getaway, cozy up in Cottage 4 ~ "Burning Love". "Summertime and the livin' is easy. Fish are jumpin'..." so what could be better for the carefree fisherman than Cottage 5 ~ "Summertime". Envision yourself lounging in a chaise watching the sun melt into the Gulf... "Summer breeze makes me feel fine...blowin' though the jasmine in my mind" at Cottage 6 ~ "Summer Breeze". Cottage 7 ~ "Under the Boardwalk" will definitely provide a retreat "out of the sun" and a place for "having some fun". Imagine relaxing days basking in that famous Florida sunshine... "It's like a heat wave burning in your heart" at Cottage 8 ~ "Heat Wave". Book now. "Were on safari to stay. Tell the teacher we're surfin'." at Cottage 9 ~ "Surfin' U.S.A.".

Although traveling decades back in time, you are only steps away from the Gulf where you can enjoy sunbathing, beachcombing, horseshoes, bocce ball, corn hole bean bag toss, swimming in the gentle surf and drinking in fabulous sunsets! For a small Recreational Fee, Seahorse Cottages also offer a kayak, paddle board and bikes to participating guests (optional program). The welcoming Seahorse Cottages are Pet Friendly, Family Friendly, Kid Friendly and "Pocketbook" Friendly.

The cottages are conveniently situated with a Publix Supermarket directly across the street. You are within walking distance from multiple restaurants and tiki bars and just a mile away from the world-renown John's Pass Village and Boardwalk with its outstanding restaurants and fabulous shopping. The revamped Treasure Island Beach Trail was completed in the spring of 2013. This almost mile long paved walkway along the east side of the beach is perfect for walking, running, skateboarding, roller-blading and bicycling. The southern-most point of the trail ends right at the Seahorse Cottages! The trail runs from 104th Avenue to 119th Avenue, parallel to the shoreline, providing easy access to the motels, restaurants and bars that make up the heart of Treasure Island's hotel district.

The Seahorse Cottages are located in historic Treasure Island. Note, Treasure Island acquired its name in 1915 thanks to some enterprising property owners who cleverly buried and then "discovered" a couple of wooden chest on the beach. News of the "treasure" quickly spread and people began referring to the area as "Treasure Island". The name stuck, as did the attraction to this remarkable coastal area ~ the real "find".

True treasures, these charming, rustic cottages are some of the few remaining yesteryear bungalows dotting the Gulf coastline. Their central location, accessibility to restaurants & shops, private setting and reasonable rates make them ideal gathering spots for family reunions, couple getaways, intimate beach weddings and office retreats. These priceless accommodations are just 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport, 45 minutes to Busch Gardens Theme Park and 90 minutes from the Orlando Theme Parks (Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World, etc.).

Step into the past. Step onto the beach. Book now and start making your own memories at the memorable Seahorse Cottages.
