Bamboo Beach Studio on Sunset Beach - Just Steps to White Sand

Bedrooms 1
Space 900 sq ft
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Bamboo Beach Studio Down Under is truly right out of a Jimmy Buffet lyric. The ocean is just steps away with beautiful wide white sand beaches that are not crowded and features spectacular sunsets. The cottage has been completely renovated, and is spacious with warm and clean furnishings. This large Studio has a queen bed and new ductless heat pump. There are two sun rooms where you can enjoy your morning coffee with only the company of humming birds, bamboo trees and other exotic tropical landscaping.

The Bamboo Beach Studio is perfect for seasonal occupants and is available weekly and monthly year round. Discounts are a courtesy we will extend for those lucky few who can take advantage of a seasonal stay.

This nicely furnished studio has a TV with DVD and DVR box. All cable and movie channels are provided with a complete digital music library as well. Along with the digital cable there is high speed WIRELESS INTERNET which allows you to receive emails while relaxing in the den or out in the sun rooms.

The Kitchen has been completely renovated and includes a new stove, refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave and all the pots, pans and utensils to create any cuisine you can dream up. Or if whipping up a gourmet dinner is not up your alley, then just hang in the sun rooms make some tasty frozen tropical drinks. Central heat and air are a must so The Bamboo Beach Studio has a brand new ductless unit to keep you cozy.

Sitting in the back sun room, with its lush tropical landscaping, will definitely convert you from the time you came from to what we on the island like to call “Island Time”. If you have a boat, the launch is four houses away which makes it perfect to keep your trailer at the cottage without fighting for parking spaces.

The infamous Caddy's beach front restaurant is within walking distance and the locals favorite Katiki is cross the street from Caddy's. If shopping is your thing, the beach shops are an easy bike ride down Gulf Blvd.

Some of Florida’s finest shopping is just a quick trip over the bridge in downtown St Pete and Tampa. The famous John's Pass is only 2 1/2 miles away with shops, restaurants and some of the best charter captains in Florida. Golf in Central Florida is a year round luxury and we have some of the best courses in the country nearby. Play the beach and bay lined courses or be challenged by Innisbrook’s Island Course, home of the Buick Open, or TPC Tampa Bay, home of the Outback Open. Busch Gardens is a quick drive over Tampa Bay and the parks of Orlando are just an easy 1 1/2 hour day trip away.

About Shonn

I am the local owner and manager of the property and am accessible at all times.

Shonn purchased this studio in 2007

Why Shonn chose Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is the best on Florida's west coast. 83rd Avenue is the prettiest street in this small community.

Perfect summer beach house!

  • 5 of 5

So we stayed for a month and would have stayed another had it been available. Short walk the the beach, short walk to the Intracoastal Waterway and a short walk to food, drinks and live music. The owner lives upstairs and couldn't be nicer. Both Shonn and her boyfriend Dave were great. The place is a studio so it's perfect for a couple. If you bring kids there is a blow up mattress available with plenty of room. The only thing is there's only a curtain separating the sleeping area so if you need privacy you will have to be creative. Small fenced in back yard if you have a dog. Overall, we loved it and are hoping to be back again soon.

Cute place close (1/2 block) to Sunset Beach

  • 4 of 5

This unit is the downstairs of the owners home. It is the perfect location - 1/2 block to Sunset Beach. The owners and the neighbors/neighborhood very friendly and safe. We enjoyed our stay just wished the place had a little nicer outdoor area to hang out in.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Shonn, the owner, is very responsive to questions. The location is perfect to walk to the beach. A street level 1 BR, with a good sized den area, and full kitchen. There was even a space for off street parking for my rental car.

Great place on Sunset Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property and the amenities we spot on. It was a very short walk to the beach, and a 10 min. walk up to nightly music and great food on the beach. Shonn answered all questions promptly. Our animals found it "like home" and surrounding neighbors friendly. Having lived on TI for 23 years, I knew my way around. This is a great property.

Great beach rental

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. We were getting married at the beach pavilion just down the street and needed a place that was close and allowed us to bring our two dogs. When Shonn found out we were coming for our wedding and had a lot of down payments due, she worked with us so we didn't have to pay the whole thing up front and left us a bottle of champagne upon arrival which we thought was a nice touch. The condo was quite large for a studio and we found it to be more than enough space. It also had a fenced in yard which was great for the dogs. The bed was very comfy and we loved the decor. This is in a great little neighborhood.
