Treasure Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Bringing out the best in you! As a returning awesome guest we give price breaks

Guests hold dear a secret that they don't want to share with you, but I will. Stay at the beach in style...Impressively furnished, with attention given to every detail. This top floor Gulf front studio, was remodeled to create higher ceilings throughout. Enjoy World famous sunsets, dolphins at play, and an ocean of gulf activity right from your room, or private balcony. It is said that 'You can't beat Nature'...The sounds of the surf crashing the shore add to this studio's wonderful, and unique ambiance.

The ideal on the beach location, and everything else within reach, makes this a 'do a little or do a-lot kind of place. These winning details, make this your lucky find. We hope you'll consider us the new gold standard.

~Provided are: Beach chairs, large umbrella, 2 coolers, big beach & pool towels. Plush bath towels, Linens.

~ All bedding is allergen incased.

~ Quietly located away from the Tiki-bar, Pool, Elevator, Lobby.

~ Gulfport Trolley and PSTA Bus picks up in front of the property.

Tips & Advise from previous guests: Scroll down to read... Sunsets were awesome. We also loved seeing dolphins right from our room!!

To find the best, and biggest shells you have to go in the water at least waist high, and feel with feet,catch,and pull up.

Check out Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach...neat Historical Hotel

Great early bird specials @ Salt Rock Grill,and JD's Seafood.Gators, open till 2:am. On Sunday nights, walk about 1/2 mile- beach drum circle. Visit Fort De Soto Park, and see dolphins off the fishing pier. Sloppy Joe's, Mother of all Mai Tai's. Ocean Breeze,Great Tapa's. Took Helicopter ride @ The Hanger in St.Pete. Ellenton Outlet Mall, if you have a rainy day. Loved the bed. Wi-fi is the best! It was great being able to look down on the beach...the best time to see dolphins(I think)is in the late afternoon.Hit the beach early or late in the day,so you can beat the heat. Sunscreen! Pinellas county doesn't sell liquor after 12:am,this surprised us, so purchase early. If you want cardio during your vacation,take the occasional stairway up & down to the beach/pool/car. I love the fact that you use method soap.That's awesome! We usually see dolphins in the early to mid-morning. Enjoy every minute you are here-it goes way too fast. Breath deep, and smile. Favorite Restaurant-Sea Critters-fabulous fresh fish.Try using the free golf cart rides from John's Pass to Passe-a-Grille.

A Floridian. I grew up around beaches, on both coasts. I love the sun. We reside 45 minutes away from the beach studio that we rent out for others to also enjoy.

Laurie Engler purchased this condo in 2009

The condo is located on the beach. The shore is absolutely enchanting. The property is the closet to the water than most in Treasure Island! Gulf/ Beach Front Suite has its own private balcony that gives incredible sweeping views up and down the beach, and out past the horizon.

The direct Gulf front Studio is located within the property of the Island Inn Condominium. Having a wonderful Sixth(Top) floor location that is opposite end of the pool and Tiki-Bar is perfect. Appointed with high end essentials, and exquisite furnishings. This studio is 'Not just a room'. Meticulously cleaned for you by me ~Laurie

LUXURY, COMFORT, RELAXATION!

  • 5 of 5
First of all I must give Laurie a standing ovation. She is the greatest! So accommodating and generous. This owner definitely puts her guest first. The pictures and listing description do not do this property justice. Laurie has some high standards and incredible interior design taste. The condo is luxurious. From the plush king size bed, which felt like I was sleeping on clouds every night, to the detailed molding in the bathroom. Absolutely gorgeous. The balcony has the best view from this building if you want my opinion. Blue waters and white sands as far as the eye can see. Johns pass is just a short drive away, more shopping and restaurants then you would know what to do with. If you go onto the beach and walk left, you will reach a restaurant called Caddy's on the beach. I recommend you go, very good! We got ice cream at Super Scoops every evening! just a few minutes down the road. Treasure island is my favorite vacation spot, but I will never again go to another condo, I will always use Laurie! Thank you again for everything Laurie, you made my Honeymoon unforgettable! God Bless!

GREAT PLACE TO RELAX

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Laurie's studio condo very much, and she was very good to work with. It was wonderful to make a cup of coffee in the a.m. & go out to the balcony & read or just listen to & watch the birds & the waves. My husband was very comfortable on the love seat in the evenings watching the large screen TV. We appreciated having secure WIFI in the studio. The pictures on the site are exactly as it is. We used the large beach towels and beach chairs that were provided, which was a wonderful addition to the condo. The shower is large and beautiful and so are the bath towels....also very soft. The 'kitchen' has everything we needed to be able to fix food in the studio condo. We had a breakfast at Ricky T's and a dinner at Salt Rock Grill that we especially enjoyed. We have already told family & friends about this cozy studio condo.

WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR

  • 4 of 5
The studio is just as pictured. The view is amazing and the accommodations are higher end than a lot of the other rooms I looked at. It is spacious enough for a couple, but I wouldn’t recommend much more than that. My husband and I needed a short break to relax and found exactly that here. There is a Tiki bar located by the pool which was great, but if you are into staying up later, you won’t be able to do that here. It was shut down pretty early, even on the weekend. This was perfectly fine with us, as we were not trying to “party”, only relax in the sun by a beautiful beach by day (which was steps away from the doors), and relax with a few drinks at night and off to bed to do it again the next day. It was very quiet at night. After shutting the door, we didn’t hear anything else until leaving again the next morning. The extras that Laurie provides are great too, from the beach chairs (you can also rent a regular lounge chair for $5 on the beach-the doubles are $20) to the extra-large beach towels and umbrella to the wonderfully comfy bed. She also goes out of her way to make sure all is well. Tons to do and see & places to eat in walking distance and in the near vicinity. We will surely be back as we have not been to a better place right on the beach with these views except in Cancun!

AMAZING VACATION ON THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had an amazing, relaxing, sun-filled vacation right on the beach. The view from the condo was beautiful. Every morning we woke up, made our breakfast and enjoyed it on the beautiful balcony looking out at the beach. There were dolphins in the water. We also visited Madeira beach, and noticed Treasure Island was a much larger and less grainy beach. Laurie was one of the nicest people we have ever met, and went out of her way to accommodate us. Also, the view from the front of the condo was wonderful as well, as we could see the inlet and waterways. We would 100% recommend this rental to couples of any age looking for a comfortable, clean, romantic getaway! We hope to return!

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect getaway for me and my husband. We have stayed at Island Inn Resort for nearly 18 years and this is the best room by far of any we have stayed in at Island Inn. The bed is very comfortable, the tile floors are impressive and the kitchenette and bathroom are beautiful. The room was very clean and had everything that you could think of. I highly recommend this room for any couple. The owners are very nice and accommodating. Restaurants are walking distance and the beach is beautiful. We will definitely come back to this room as soon as we can get away again. Thanks Laurie for everything, we had a great time!

ROMANTIC GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I chose this property for our vacation because I wanted a place on the beach where we could wake up every morning to the sound of the ocean. It was more beautiful than we hoped. So cozy and lovely. Everything we needed was provided. Beach chairs, towels. The beach was quiet and relaxing, never crowded. We found so much to do in the area.
I am saving this to my favorites. I definately want to go back!
