Treasure Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Welcome to “The Shore Thing”, condo #318, 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 painted and 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, laundry basket and other amenities.

For your indoor entertainment there’s a flat screen TV, Cable, free Wifi, DVD/VCR player (including a large variety of DVDs), family card/games and a varied selection of paperback books and magazines. For your outdoor needs we provide beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards 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 Beachfront Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was thoroughly pleased when I arrived at "The Shore Thing" at The Island Inn. The room has that perfect "beach feel" with the colors and decor. The bed is super comfy and the beach/oceanview from the balcony is soooo breathtaking. Did not rent a car this time, so took the "tips only" beach transport service to and from the grocery store. Its a great deal! I loved being able to make my own coffee in the morning, sit on the balcony and take in the views. Got to see dolphins!! The beach chairs provided by the owners are another added touch I appreciated. Went "shelling" a few times during low tide and found a few intact sand dollars and other pretty shells. I am very happy I chose this condo and will definitely be back!

What a Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "The Shore Thing", at the Island Inn. The owners have decorated the place so tastefully, and added little touches that made our stay super comfortable. We used the Britta water pitcher for ice cold water when we came in from the beach (more about that later), brewed our own coffee, cooked dinner using the stove top and the toaster oven, and watched a blue-ray dvd movie one rainy day on the flat screen.

The view of the gulf and the beach from the balcony can't be beat; we saw dolphins, pelicans, sunsets and kite boarders out on the big expanse of water. But it was more fun for us to get in the warm ocean ourselves. I even rented a paddleboard and tried that one glassy day. And we found dozens of beautiful shells while walking along the beach in the morning.

There's a Publix grocery store nearby where we bought most of our food, but we sampled some of the local eating places happily. All in all, we had a great vacation at The Shore Thing, and we are definitely going back next year. Check it out!

Better than Sandals Jamaica Room!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to a lot of beaches and stayed in a lot of condos and resorts so when I say this is the best for the rental price that's saying a lot! The unit is clean, well decorated, has wonderful view from the balcony with awesome sunsets, and is in a very convenient location. There is a Publix grocery store and Walgreens a short drive down the road. We walked down the beach several times to Caddy's for food and drinks, sometimes with a live band. John's Pass is close for shops and dining. It's a short trip to visit Tarpon Springs for best Greek food ever. Stop by Clearwater Beach for dinner but you'll want to escape the traffic and return to The Shore Thing for a more peaceful end to your day.The best detail was the screen door and ceiling fan. We turned off the AC most nights and fell asleep listening to the ocean waves.
The owner has thought of everything you could need including rare items such as laundry detergent for the second floor laundry, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels, dvds, books, magazines, games. The nightstands on each side of the bed had alarm clocks and each side of the bed had a power strip for charging our phones.
The resort is on a beautiful stretch of beach and we collected tons of large shells. And yes there are dolphins (no charge) and several species of birds.
The only complaint we have is the pool. It was not heated as advertised and that was an important detail for us. The water was freezing, probably due to the rain before we arrived. This is a matter The Island Inn is responsible for and not the owner of this particular room. The tiki bar was always open and there are lounge chairs, tables with chairs, bbq grills, volleyball nets. There is construction taking place and parking is limited at condo so we parked in the lot across the street most of the time which was a slight inconvenience but temporary I imagine during the construction. There are docks across the street for fishing. Bicycle rentals were available as well as fishing poles at a local surf shop if you are interested in those activities.
All in all it was a great room for a great price and we are already planning on a return visit. Thanks for one of the best vacations ever!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our long weekend at the beach. The room (#318) was clean and comfortable with a bright, beachy feeling and a lot of thoughtful "extras". The owner has filled the place with a variety of games and activities for all ages to keep busy when not on the beach. The bathroom and kitchenette have been nicely upgraded. The kitchen had everything we needed to eat in comfortably including a full size fridge and filtered water. I really appreciated that care was taken to make everything inside this condo environmentally friendly.
The view is gorgeous! We really did see frolicking dolphins and beautiful sunsets. We loved that the beach is just steps from the door. The Gulf water is warm and delightful with sea life all around. Giant Pelicans and other sea birds were continuously fishing all around us and, during one of our swims, three Dolphins passed within 15' of us. Amazing!
We had a nice dinner and enjoyed some shopping at John's Pass. Corey Causeway is also nearby and has more cute shops. We had a wonderfully relaxing long weekend. Next time I hope we can make it a whole week!

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).
