ARRIVED! AN AFFORDABLE BEACHFRONT RETREAT WITH THE COMFORTS OF HOME!

Treasure Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 0 Bedrooms, 1.0 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to “The Shore Thing” at the Island Inn Resort on Treasure Island. Located directly on the beach, with nothing but sand between you and the Gulf's glistening waters. If you’re looking for stunning views, incredible sunsets and endless stretches of sandy beach and sparkling water, all at an affordable price, you’ve arrived.

Let the waves lull you to sleep; watch the passing dolphins frolic; relax on the sand; play in the warm Gulf; or enjoy the resort’s year-round heated beachfront pool. Clean and comfortable, this fresh and updated condo can accommodates up to three adults (or two adults and two small children) with a king-sized bed and pullout full-size sofabed.

Featuring a private balcony facing Treasure Island's magnificent seashore, this 3rd floor studio efficiency has recently been updated with many extras.

The efficiency kitchen includes a dining table for four, a full size fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, blender, 2 burner stovetop, countertop oven, dishes/cutlery, and a full complement of pots and pans. The bathroom has a shower/tub combo. The separate bath vanity features a wall-mounted magnifying mirror and hair dryer. All your towels/beach towels and linens are supplied, along with an iron/ironing board and other amenities.

For your indoor entertainment there’s a flat screen TV, Cable, free Wifi, DVD/VCR player (including DVDs and even a few VHS relics!), family card/games and a selection of reading materials. For your outdoor needs we provide beach chairs, and sand/water toys. Additionally, in an effort to be a bit ‘greener’, The Shore Thing offers a Britta filtered pitcher system and a complimentary cloth shopping bag – great for groceries or to carry your ‘stuff’ to the beach. Other eco-friendly features include a bamboo fabric mattress top, and organic cotton, allergy-relief pillow coverings.

Along with its beachfront pool, Island Inn Resort features two boat docks/fishing piers, free parking, a poolside Tiki Bar, patio area, outdoor showers, BBQ grills and beach volleyball courts. The lobby offers an ATM, complimentary coffee and a computer station. A coin laundry facility is located on the resort’s 2nd floor. Nearby you’ll find everything you need: Publix grocery, restaurants (including the renowned Caddy’s, a 3 minute walk down the beach), unique shops and the Suncoast Trolley to take you up and down the Islands.

With direct access to the Gulf and the Inter Coastal waters, Treasure Island is a hidden gem of the Tampa Bay Area. This is fun, flip-flop, ‘funky’ Florida living at its best! But for those in the mood to explore, St. Petersburg, just over the causeway, offers something for every age and interest – indeed, it made the NY Times top places to visit in 2014! Slightly further is the thriving city of Tampa, home of Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, Tampa international airport. Beyond that, Orlando (Disneyworld, Universal Studio) is just a 90-minute drive away.

Perfect for a short vacation or a longer getaway – whether a family trip, romantic escape, chillin’ with friends or some quiet time alone – we believe your stay at The Shore Thing will be all that you hope for (and more!)

Great View/Room

  • 5 of 5
Was previously here in April and now again in August. The view/location here is amazing. Sunsets, dolphins, more dolphins (maybe we were just lucky) the short walk to the beach. Imagine there are fancier beach rentals, but this place has everything our family needs for vacation. Pool, kitchen, beach, grills, etc....the location is great. The hotel/resort is clean (not sure about other bug comments as I haven't seen bugs in our two stays), good staff (Hollyn is fantastic) and the location can't be beat for the price.

The room we stay in (318) seems somewhat unique. The king size bed is great, the room was clean and the owner made numerous upgrades (new sliding glass/screen doors) including bathroom accessories. The room has a nice size fridge, microwave, toaster over, coffee maker, etc.... and all the basic kitchen rental stuff. And there are beach chairs, umbrella, frisbees, etc...... But this owner went one better by leaving books, DVDs, board games, puzzle books, etc..... in the room. We had good weather for the week and did not end up needing the rainy day distractions. But I was struck by the thought process and extra effort of the owner. When was the last time anyone of us have stayed anywhere (at least at this price) where management was that focused on our needs.

We'll be back to the Island Inn in December and have room 318 already reserved. I suggest others do as well (but likely have to do the rental through VRBO or ITrip).

The real Thing

Our family stayed here for 3 days and had a very relaxing time. The views are remarkable, the room was clean and had clean new appliances. It was close to nite entertainment, a Publix and drug store. Great location!

Great Visit at Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in Florida a few times and it hasn't left much of a mark until I stayed here. The views were phenomenal and it's going to be tough to leave. I love the sun, I love the beach, and I love being comfortable... I was lucky enough to get all three in one place. I'm so happy I found this place, I will definitely be doing what I can to come back.
I was a little weary about it not having enough space but I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was plenty of room. There was plenty of spaces and storage area to put my belongings even around the beautiful giant king bed that was beyond comfortable and had a great view of the beach. I found that it also didn't matter much because I was mostly on the beach that was literally down the stairs or at the pool/Ricks Tiki Bar.
The sunset was a gorgeous view that I'm unlikely to see most places especially from a balcony overlooking the ocean and the clean beach. It was so peaceful to sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down. Overall, I thought the place was clean, well decorated, and homey and I loved staying here and I hope that others are lucky enough to stay at a place like this.

A fabulous vacation condo

  • 5 of 5
The Shore Thing exceeded my expectations. Everything promised was delivered - great views and sunsets, a terrific beach, a nice pool and a comfortable and well-appointed studio. Although it is a condo, I felt like I was staying in a delightful beach cottage! I slept better than I have for a long time - the bed was really comfortable and listening to the surf was like a wonderful lullaby. I also really enjoyed all the many recent upgrades like a countertop oven, a new microwave and coffee maker, a magnifying make-up mirror and a hand held shower spray that had a variety of settings. I also liked the reusable grocery bag (a gift for each guest) and the filtered water pitcher that saved me from using a plastic bag when I went to the market and from having to buy plastic water bottles. Itrip managment was very helpful and everyone at the Island Inn was so nice. I did have a car, but barely needed it as I could walk to so many places including the market. The island trolley also makes it easy to get around. I have stayed at St. Beach hotels before and had to pay a lot more money for less amenities and no beach view. I will definitely be back.

I Really Liked This Place!

  • 5 of 5
WOW! You open the front door and the view just hits you (better then the pictures) - and the view only gets better further in on the coach, bed and then balcony. We've previously stayed at St. Pete Beach hotels, but never been this close to the beach. Sitting on the balcony listening to the waves break we saw dolphins and amazing sunsets.

The pool was clean (and heated much better then the faux heated pools a lower priced hotels) and drew a good crowd. We met friendly people from all over the USA (and Europe), while our daughter even had other kids to play with. I think the number of returning guests we met confirmed our positive feelings were shared by others.

The room was clean and the beds reasonably comfortable. We slept well, were able to eat in/make breakfast on a number of mornings (we were somewhat on a budget) due to the well supplied kitchen and had enough Cable TV channels for the lesser weather times. The room included sand chairs (once again saving us $'s on renting beach loungers) for the easy walk (so so close) to the beach.

The Island Inn itself was nice - the staff considerate and there was adequate (once again, very close) parking. With plenty of places to eat nearby, doubt we drove (or walked to a couple of times to the closer ones) more then a couple of miles.

We much enjoyed our 8 days. Seeing no reason to look elsewhere am hoping the room (Shore Thing) will be available in August and December when we finalize those trips to again see family. I'd recommend this place for all: older crowd (shorter walks/distances then other places), younger crowds (awesome pool/beach), those with families and most everyone in between......but please don't take our week(s).

HAVE FUN!
