About David Ninnis and Barry Goodman
Originally hailing from London, UK, we had spent numerous holidays in this area & we fell in love with it's charms. We continue to be mesmerized by what the locale has to offer-scenically & culturally. There is abundant exotic wildlife & always another side of Florida just waiting to be discovered. We both love to travel and wanted to create a space that we would be happy to stay in. During our travels, we have always found it much more rewarding staying in apartments, houses, & rental units, as opposed to soul less hotels. It's great to be able to immerse yourself in a place and live as the locals do!
David Ninnis and Barry Goodman purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why David Ninnis and Barry Goodman chose Sunset Beach
We always fantasized about owning a beach cottage & fell in love with this area. Although initially in need of some TLC, we could immediately see the potential of this 'old Florida' property, and did not hesitate in purchasing it. We really enjoyed renovating it and spending time here. We lived here for a time, enjoying the private garden & loved just wandering around taking in the atmosphere of the local area, which has a wonderfully laid back vibe, definitely unique in this day and age. We have stayed in a number of vacation rentals over the years and we loved the idea of owning a property in a `real' neighborhood.
What makes this Cottage unique
A quintessential laid-back beach location within easy walking distance to the beach, bars, restaurants and convenience store. A private decked area for chilling, and a front porch for watching the world go by.

Look no further!
Absolutely adorable cottage in the perfect location. 3 minute walk to beach and 2 restaurants/bars. Very short drive to shops. This cottage is meticulously clean and the owners have thought of every little detail to make their guests comfortable! I didn’t want to leave! They set the bar very high for any other VRBO, that’s for sure!!!
Wonderful little gem!
From the time we booked until the time we left, everything was superb. Communication with the owners was excellent, they were helpful and informative. Check in was a breeze and the cottage is so well equipped that we wanted for nothing.
The location was perfect, just a short stroll to the amazing beach and a couple of bars. Off road parking meant that it was like a real hole from home. The local cat Mr Paws was adorable and super friendly, greeting us each night we returned, which as cat people made our holiday perfect.
I’d highly recommend this cottage and very much hope to return
Dave and Barry ante excellent hosts!
The property is super clean and a close walk to the beach. The hosts communication is above expectations. Definitely will refer this property to friends and family!
Had a great stay. Cottage had everything we needed. David and Barry are great hosts. We will be going back there again.
Thank you so much! It was great to meet you both & we look forward to welcoming you back.
After weeks of research my husband and I came across this little Gem . A stunning little cottage literally a 2 min walk to an equally stunning , tranquil beach . The cottage had absolutely everything that we could possibly need for a perfect beach holiday .
Our wonderful hosts David and Barry were on hand at all times with a wealth of information of the local area . The bottle of wine left for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary was a lovely surprise !
We would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday , close to amenities and in a beautiful location! We had a ball !

So glad you dipped your toes & relished what this wonderful area has to offer. Cheers to your 30th anniversary & we would love to have you back. Thanks very much for your comments.
Had a wonderful week at the cottage. Was well equipped so no need to bring a lot of stuff. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
Thanks very much for your comments. So glad you enjoyed your week & we would love to host you again.
The cottage is located on a quiet and friendly residential road with a quintessential `old Florida', laid-back, beach vibe.There are many amenities nearby ,including the fabulous beach of course, but it is much quieter than the northern part of Treasure Island ... a true hidden gem in a real beach community. It's an easy walk to bars, restaurants and a local 7-11 convenience store. A car would not be essential, but it would make it easier to venture further afield. Nearby St Petersburg offers a wealth of culture, arts, fine restaurants, sporting events and shopping opportunities.
