About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Private Dock in the Backyard,
Beach Across the Street

Why choose between boating and beaching...
when you can have BOTH!

Shell Haven is a water-lovers paradise! Our premiere vacation spot is a rare treat on the beaches... every window out front looks upon the Gulf beach sands across the street, while the private backyard looks onto its own landscaped beach and a breathtaking wide-water view of the Boca Ciega Bay. Park your boat or sit and fish in salt water on our long, wide private dock while the kids play in the sand by the water. Make yourself at home in a full kitchen with cooking utensils, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, electric stove, cable TV and VCR or DVD, and a queen sofa bed in the living room. Linens are included. Laundry facilities and high-speed wireless internet are available on-site.

This one-bedroom unit is decorated in a refreshing blue-and-white cottage theme. Bedroom has two full beds and a queen sofabed is in the living room. Enjoy watching the gorgeous beach sunsets from the bedroom, or watch the boats go by on the Intracoastal from the living room and kichen windows. Beautiful!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Jeanie has been handling bookings, reservations and customer support with Florida Coast Cottages for many years. "Beach House Jim" Hebin is the Property Manager of the Shell Haven, and has been into real estate and vacation property management since a very young age.

Why the Owner Chose Treasure Island, FL, USA:
This is the THINNEST part of Treasure Island (merely two lots wide), and the lot across the street is the beach access parking lot! As a result, you can look out the back window at the yachts boating by our private dock on the Intracoastal Waterway - then simply turn your head 180 degrees and look our the front window to watch people walking up and down the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico across the street!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Bring your boat or jetskis ... No Dock Fee (Slip Fee)! OR RENT OUR JETSKIS FOR LESS (Call for details.) ++++ Free boat ramp is just 3 doors down +++ Caddy's Beachfront Bar & Grill is just 100 yards to the south (stumbling distance home!) +++ A short walk or jetski ride to Publix, downtown Treasure Island, great restaurants and 'watering-holes' +++ Incredible ocean sunsets
