About Michelle

I am originally from Minnesota and have lived in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area for 9 years. I just purchased a home in Treasure Island and converted it from a single-family home back into a duplex. I am a Finance Manager for a business with it's corporate offices in Tampa area. I am excited to share my home with you and look forward to meeting you and hearing about your stay.

Michelle purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle chose Treasure Island

I love the water but the drive and parking never appealed to me. So the opportunity to live here has been amazing. I love walking over and watching the sunset - Absolutely Breathtaking!

What makes this house unique

This property allows for rest, relaxation and privacy. But it also is so close to everything that you can also be extremely social. It's the best of both worlds.

The neighborhood is mostly residential and quiet. This is not the location for you if you are looking for a party house. I expect tenants to be respectful to the neighbors and attempt to keep noise levels reasonable.

Our new home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place and found this adorable little home to stay. The bed and pillows were amazing. So comfortable it was hard to get up some mornings. Close to everything you could need or want. Just a block away from the beach, restaurants and stores. Michelle the owner is so very sweet. She makes sure you are comfortable with everything in the apartment. Even gives you info on places to eat and visit. We have made a friend with Michelle for life! We really hope to get back to her place before the end of the year. My husband has said that Michelle's place is now our home away from home and he will not stay anywhere else. Hopefully our next stay will be for more than a week. Thanks Michelle for making our stay in your home perfect! See you again soon.

I come to the Tampa area often for both personal/professional purposes. I can honestly say, that I haven't found a better location near the beach, that has been more enjoyable. I found myself saying "Awesome" every single time I discussed this rental...the owner will confirm. So as I speak, I hope that my words tell enough positive comments for the rental. I wanted something different from the resort/hotel experiences, and this by far exceeded that expectation. It was very clean, relaxing, nicely tucked away for privacy, yet close to stores, and a short walk to the was absolutely an amazing stay, I wish I could've stayed much longer.

I'd definitely recommend, and I have to my friends and colleagues. Thank you Michelle, I hope to have this experience in the near future, if available.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was just what we needed after a long winter in Atlantic Canada. The apartment is nicely decorated, clean as a whistle, great for two people and very private. Parking is close to your unit.

You should take a little wagon to haul your chairs to the beach as it is under a 10 minute walk to the water’s edge on the golf. Close to Publix and Walgreens as well as restaurants. You can walk everywhere.

Would definitely stay there again! Thanks Michelle

Florida at its best !

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Treasure Island. We travelled with our 7 year old son and felt really comfortable in this accomodation which is perfect for self-catering holidays. Well equipped kitchen, nice bathroom and a real high-quality full-size bed. Our son slept on an extendible couch which was absolutely sufficient. The owner was really kind and cordial and always disposed to help us if whe had questions or needed some advice. You can reach the beach of Treasure Island in a few minutes by foot. Treasure Island is a real good starting point for all those who appreciate to go on excursion at the south-west-coast of Florida. We visited the coastal strip from Sarasota up to Dunedin as well as St. Petersburg, Tampa and finally Miami and were very fascinated ! The beaches are gorgeous, we recommend to visit particularly those of Anna Maria Island and Caladesi Island - what a dream ! We will surely come back one day, a pity that first of all we have to traverse the Atlantic Ocean at each time .... ;-)) The really only thing which was a little bit "bothersome" during our stay were the noisy air-conditioning-system. On the one hand we appreciated the refrigerant effect, on the other hand it sometimes kept you from going to sleep or from passing a quiet relaxing morning or evening on the little patio behind the appartment. It seems to be a matter of habit - especially for Europeans who are not used to this kind of temperatures .

Owner's Response: I really enjoyed visiting with you and your family. I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit and have stayed in touch. When I decided to rent one of my units as a vacation rental, I was hopeful for good renters but not only have I been fortunate to have great renters, I received a bonus of creating new friendships. Thank you and please stay in touch :). I appreciate the feedback that you gave me on the A/C unit when you were here. As a result, I replaced the unit earlier than planned with new ductless system that is extremely quiet. Each unit is controlled separate from others.

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect size space for our most recent trip to the gulf of Florida!

With terrazzo floors throughout, the design elements couldn't have been any nicer!

(And I am a seasoned traveler, a designer / builder to boot, so.... the bar is set high!)

The listing is very accurate, but a bit modest! The bed and bedding was very nice, shutters allow in morning light or not, as you wish.

There is an in line airconditioner, worked great!

Full kitchen with everything you might need, including dishwasher...

The living room / seating area is super comfy with an area rug to soften the terrazzo floors, sofa (with additional sleeping) and easy chair.

TV size and service fantastic.

AND, to top it all off, the bathtub (pink!) is cast iron and very nice....

Typically I won't rent a space that does not have a special tub, and in this case, I just figured that I would not have one, until we arrived!

Great water pressure, nice!!!

Super clean, and your own direct door to a shared laundry room with high end washer and dryer, WOW!

Michelle, the owner, couldn't have been more accomidating or friendly.... She decorated our peninsula "chimney" with stocking for our arrival Xmas eve!

Great experience.... As advertised, and more...
