Guestbook comments from the owner
After over 52 inches of snow we deserved the warm and sunny weather we had during this trip. We come to Treasure Island every year and love staying at Mermaid Pass. This time we took in Ft. Desoto and the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. Enjoyed both!

As always, thanks for making your cottage our home away from home.

See you next year.

Honeymoon Perfection

  • 5 of 5
My new husband and I spent our honeymoon in this adorable house. It was absolutely perfect. Everything we needed was there waiting on us and the walk to the beach was even shorter than I anticipated. My husband and I had the best time and if you want a nice quite retreat the place is definitely perfect.

PERFECT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Mermaid Pass the week of Memorial Day. This cottage is the absolute best spot on the island. My wfe and I like the pass less trod and the hustle and bustle of the main drag was nicely offset by the laid back amenities of this gem. The cottage is nestled at the far end of the blvd. so it was way less crowded on the beach there. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay on Treasure Island....this is it....the hot tub is wonderful...enjoy.

Fantastic Spring Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to the Treasure Island area and I must say everything exceeded our expectations. The weather and the beach was perfect and just as advertised. The cottage was roomy and clean and having a washer and dryer was much better for our family than staying in a cramped condo. There was a full service supermarket very close by and a variety of resturaunts. The beach beach was just as pictured and the sunsets were unbelievable.
The cottage provided all the amenities we needed and we especially enjoyed relaxing on the sundeck and hot tub.
Although there were a list of activities that we wanted to do in the area we only traveled away from the "island" to go to Johns Pass boardwalk and shopping district and to the Dali Museum in downtown St. Petersburg, My husband and my son went Deep Sea Fishing out of John's Pass and caught Grouper which we grilled on the gas grill.
Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. It was truly a great family spring break. We hope to come back again and maybe take a day trip to Disney.

Laid back, no worries, wonderful place to relax!

  • 4 of 5
We couldn't wait to get to Mermaid Pass cottage. Our winter this year has been very cold and lots of snow. Imagine you are starving and thirsty and suddenly see this oasis that all yours! The cottage is adorable and very clean, with a large master bedroom that has sliding doors to the deck and hot tub. Great kitchen and eating area, living room and lots of closet space. One bath has an old claw foot tub which would be great for kids bubble baths. The owners have given you everything you need to have a wonderful, casual vacation. There are two tv's in case adults and kids want to watch different shows. Also, getting on the internet is very easy. Just look at the first page of the cottage rules book. But who wants to be on the internet when you can go shopping, swimming, fishing, etc.? Check out the "board walk" for ice cream, candy and shopping, especially the $10 Jewelry store at the far end of the walk.
What makes this place great is the convenience to everything you could possible want! The beach is across the street but be careful when crossing. Use the left side to cross over so that you won't have to contend with the on-coming traffic that turns onto the main street. Lots of places to walk dogs or stroll with your baby. 7-11 right across the street for morning paper, shell store,
bait and tackle, etc. Even with all of this around you, there is no noise and you are all tucked away from the road.
We visited Ybor City with a long time friend who gave us a city tour after we had a tasty meal at the original Columbia restaurant. Be sure and have a meal there. The waiters are dressed in formal attire, the pictures and artwork are great, especially the 1905 tile work; and, the chandelier is gorgeous! But, the atmosphere is very casual.
We ate a lot of our meals at Foxys; we discovered that place last year and loved it then. Good food and low prices. The servers are friendly and the owner is always asking how everything tasted, etc.
We had our 2 small dogs with us and they were very happy with walks and being on the deck.
Charlie is very responsive to any questions you may have about the cottage or surroundings. Just ask.
This is a great place to chill out and have fun! We will definltely come back.

Owner's Response: Suzanne and Bob, thank you so much for taking the time to post such a quality review. I truly feel that that potential guests read and benefit from guest reviews. I particularly enjoyed reading that you were able to visit historic Ybor City in Tampa. The Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City is a Tampa Bay icon and an authentic spanish restaurant with great food, service and ambiance. I hope that next winter isn't as cold as this one was for our northern neighbors. Regardless of the weather, please come stay with us again.

Charming beach cottage is right! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Mermaid Pass and we are already anticipating our next stay! The property manager made it so easy to access/leave the home that none of our vacation was sacrificed for any paperwork! We made friends with the locals at R-Bar, Caddy's, and Suncoast Surf Shop (in front of the house) and we were told this cottage has been there for years. Anyone that found out we were staying at Mermaid Pass immediately gave us a warm welcome since the home is a part of the neighborhood's history. The home had all the amenities we needed and the recently renovated kitchen space made it easy for our whole family to enjoy breakfast together before we hit the beach. We only left the neighborhood to site-see at Fort DeSoto Park and Ybor City. Oh and we may have driven to the Ellenton Premium Outlets too for some cloudy day shopping! Otherwise, we never felt the need to leave our cozy little neighborhood! The home is literally steps from the beach and is just a couple blocks from many shops and restaurants. The home has quite the collection of journal entries and menus for review that helped us during our stay. We left detailed entries in the journal with restaurant reviews and things to do that we'd recommend! The master bedroom is huge and would easily fit an air mattress if anyone ever wanted to do that. The second bedroom has a single bed with a trundle and the couch in the living room (adjacent to the second bedroom) is a sleeper sofa. In short--Mermaid Pass and the Treasure Island neighborhood is amazing and we will be visiting both again!
