About Lola Brown

Greetings! My name is Russell Brown and I am originally from Washington DC, and now have about eight years here of Florida coastal living. I am about to retire, and had the privilege of serving my country for most of my life and was privileged to work and reside in many different countries over the years. The St. Petersburg/Tampa area ended up being my last official stop for me and my military associated work. I have spent the best years here in Florida on the gulf coast, and I am enamored with the gulf coast beach living and boating lifestyle. So recently I was searching for an opportunity to express myself, mix things up, and I felt the desire to offer to others what I am doing here on a daily basis and share it with everyone...sharing part of the Florida Gulf coast experience. So I was fortunate to find this gem of a property on Treasure Island along the famed Sunset Beach, and I wasted no time in purchasing Tres Palms. This 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage unit is co-located to our other cottage unit (Vacationrentals/Homeaway property ID # 3835140, a 2 bedroom/1 bathroom with sleeper sofa). I am proud to say I am a veteran owned business, and I can't tell you enough about this property. The property is managed by Lola Brown on a daily basis and is your main point of contact. I have a one of a kind boutique cottage that will uplift your spirits and give a little Key West living experience and feeling to your stay. This is exquisitely done, and I am extremely confident you will be rejuvenated when you are here on the cottage property. I am an avid boater and enjoy scuba diving, as well as the the white sandy beaches, beach activities of all types, and exploring the unique coastline, marine life, and nautical diversity. Tres Palms is that property, and I'm willing to share that with you if you choose to visit and be a guest. I promise to offer you great hospitality, some good travel advice, fun experiences, local recommendations for activities, and will make your stay enjo

Great Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time at the cottage and sunset beach for a weekend getaway. While the cottage is cozy it was perfect for the two of us. It was a short walk to the beach which was not crowded at all. We walked to Caddys, Ka'Tiki, Sea Hags, Sea Dogs Brewing, and the Taco Bus. All were great and a lot of fun. We can't wait to come back.

Not for 4!

  • 3 of 5

Location is great, Wi-Fi and air conditioner work well but the two of us plus our daughters found that it was extremely small for 4. We had to take turns eating as it does not really accomodate the chairs (that are in the bedroom), when the couch was pulled out to a bed there was no where to move, it was super inconvenient. Cottage is very small and apart from the bedroom which is good for two we would say definitely does not sleep or accomodate 4. Very tiny bathroom and shower that was not working correctly. Lola was very communicative during our stay but we have not heard back since she let us know that she found a cracked leg on the unstable coffee table (that we had to move in order to open the couch up). It was so disappointing as we were really looking forward to our week on Sunset Beach and where we usually stay was being remodeled.

Quiet neighborhood within walking distance to everythin

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage is the cutest! It was a great weekend getaway for me, my husband and our two dogs. Spotless on the inside! The bed was very comfortable. Shower was roomy, but had very little water pressure. The kitchen was small, but exactly what we needed. The living was perfect with a couch, chair and TV. We lived on the patio. It was great to watch other neighbors walk by with their pups and just hang out in the beachy breeze. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach. We walked the dogs around the neighborhood several times and got to know some of the neighbors. They were all lovely. We walked to dinner several times- Sea Hags, Caddy's and Taco Bus. All were wonderful. I highly recommend staying here, as it truly is what the photos make it out to be. Thank you, Lola!!

Our cottage was cozy, yet perfect. It was our first time being snow birds and cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect - away from the commercial area of Treasure Island and crowds, lights, traffic and noise. Sunset Beach is one of the best undiscovered quiet little beach towns around. The cottage was ideal for my wife and myself and our dog. The residential area was perfect for walking around. Each street had more quirky and quaint little old time cottages all landscaped with palm trees and other tropical vegetation. Our cottage was one of three attached and the other guests were as pleased with their dwellings as well. The landlord was most helpful with answers to all my questions and advice regarding restaurants and the like. The kitchen was well equipped (though not modern and spacious) with what a couple of snow birds needed for the month. The gulf beach was 287 steps from door to sand and looked directly west to some of the most glorious day to day sunsets one could imagine. The beach was perfect for walking miles every day from Johns Pass to Blind Pass. Shells of all varieties abound and the shore birds were simply spectacular to watch fish and walk through.

The cottage and Sunset Beach is the ideal way to experience winter. It is 25 minutes from downtown St. Petersburg and about 45 minutes to Tampa and Ybor City. The dog beach at Fort DeSoto is just 20 minutes away and was a near daily demand from our dog. Sarasota is about an hour south and Clearwater is about 35 minutes north. But for my money, I could spend most of every day walking the beach and admiring seashore life at its best.

The cottage had a great front porch with a swing bench and there was an extra porch area for dining and grilling. Many a conversations were had with people walking by. If you wanted privacy and quiet on the porch you simply did not have to initiate a conversation with those walking by. It could be as peaceful or as conversational as you like.

As noted, while small and cozy, it was the perfect home away from home as we could have imagined. Just enough space to relax and unwind after a day/night out, yet warm and inviting and quirky enough to enjoy the time at home. Laundry was tight out the backdoor.

Hoping to return year after year for as long as possible. Perfect location to escape NE winters.

Thanks Lola for the great accommodations.

Sweet Little Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Wifey and I rented for a couple nights over the July 4th holiday. We are locals so we used it for a beach staycation. Excellent location with a very short walk to Sunset Beach. Caddy's and Ka'Tiki bar/restaurants are an equally short walk. Ka'Tiki has live music every night and very reasonable prices for food and drink. Caddy's will provide you with beach umbrella/cabana and chairs for a reasonable gratuity. From Sunset Beach and the Gulf, we observed a gorgeous sunset followed by fireworks on the 4th at different points all along the beach. Simply amazing. The beach is beautiful.

The Mermaid Cove bungalow is neat, tidy, and well-equipped. Full size fridge and smaller stove. Utensils and plates if you so desire. Queen bed and pull out sofa if needed. Chairs, floats, beach carts, etc. A/C is ice cold, walk-in shower works well, and high speed internet works great. Check-in was a breeze and our hostess was very accommodating. We will definitely be back :)
