About Diane

We have lived in Florida since the 80's and enjoy opening up our home to visitors and repeat guests. My interests are traveling, helping others, volunteering and enjoying the beautiful Florida beaches.

Diane purchased this condo in 2003

Why Diane chose Treasure Island

Because Treasure Island has less traffic than areas further up the beach and has a nice wide beach where you can watch kite flying, wind surfing and sand sculpting. It is a great town with great restaurants and quick access to downtown St. Pete.

What makes this condo unique

We have a neat, clean, remodeled unit that feels like home and a great balcony to enjoy the beach from or sit on the sofa and enjoy the great view. You could bring your boat here and dock it at our dock, availability permitting but it usually is available and have great restaurants/bars within walking distance and great shopping at John's pass a stone's throw away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved it. Just like home and close to everything. Our new vacation destination from now on.

Old, tired and dirty

  • 2 of 5

Upon arrival at this unit we were pleased with the overall look and location of the facility but was very disappointed in the room itself. Updates have not been done to this unit in quite a while and it was very cluttered with cleaning products and linens. The cabinets under the sinks in the kitchen and bathroom were stuffed with cleaning supplies and the closet held not only the chest of drawers but brooms, mops, vacuums, linens, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. and items were just randomly thrown in and it was not very clean. There was not any room to stow away any of our suitcases or other items. The curtains were very old and all along the bottom was either VERY dirty or moldy - not sure which. The TV was at least 25 years old and had a fuzzy picture. The mattress was very used. Even after paying a cleaning fee for the use of this unit we were instructed to launder all bed linens and towels and to re-make the bed with the fresh linens prior to leaving. I have never been instructed to do this with any other property I have rented.

While there we asked to see other rooms in the facility and they were quite nice (and larger) but since we had booked and paid thru HomeAway we were not able to switch rooms unless we paid for the additional room. The staff at the facility were very helpful and nice. The facility itself was clean and well maintained. I would recommend the facility but not this particular unit. I will be contacting the owner to express my disappointment.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The view was great without having the ocean front price tag. The condo is well equipped and the layout is done well so it doesn't feel cramped. The beach on that side of the island is less crowded, which we also liked.

Small Condo for 2 with Beach Access

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful mother daughter vacation in Treasure Island. Diane's condo at the Island was small, but clean and had everything we needed for our stay. I would not recommend it for 4 people, it was just the 2 of us and we barely had room for our luggage etc... since we were not in the room much it worked out. The only suggestion I have is that there were plenty of towels and beach towels but only 2 small wash clothes, and one of them looked pretty old. We ended up buying a few from Walmart. Other than that everything else was fine. We loved the easy acces to the beach and the little bar at the property, the bartender (I forgot her name) was from our hometown Cincinnati Ohio so it was pretty cool Sitting at the bar and chatting with her. Easy check in and easy check out. Everyone at the front desk was helpful and nice. Parking was no problem, even coming in really late a couple of nights we were still able to get a spot, there was also ample parking right across the street if needed.

Nice studio with great views

  • 4 of 5

Beachfront inn in a nice area of Treasure Island. The studio unit was well equipped and had beach/ocean views as well as views of the intracoastal waterway.
