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.

Wonderful place to stay and vacation at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Mermaid Pass Cottage was wonderful. We loved the cottage and even though it was a quaint cottage it also had all of the modern conveniences we wanted. It was even better than pictured and was spotlessly clean. It was so easy to get to the beach as well as all of Treasure Island. Lots of great eating places close to the cottage. The owners were great to deal with and I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a great stay at the beach.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Treasure Island. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Was great to have a hot tub for cooler days/evenings. The beach is super close, just a quick walk across the street. We rented stand up paddle boards from a beach shop just across from the house and it was well worth it. We saw dolphins at the beach. The house is walking distance to restaurants, grocery store... If we go back to Treasure Island we will definitely try to stay here again! (Family of 4, kids are 4 and 9)

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.
