Overview

Treasure Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Kick off your shoes and enjoy a taste of old Florida in our charming beach cottage located on the beach side of Gulf Blvd. We are one of six individually owned units in Gulf Sounds and just a few steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Treasure Island has a sparkling white sand beach with clear blue-green waters. Our beach is closer to the water and quieter than the many of the busy hotel beach areas in Treasure Island. We are centrally located with many restaurants, shops, and activities within walking distance. There is a public boat ramp across the street and the beach trolley stop is on the corner.

Our bright and airy beach cottage is upstairs allowing you to take advantage of cool night breezes and to leave your windows open with no worries. It's quieter too since it is not on the street side of the complex. The unit is just under 700 sf and sleeps 6 with a queen bed in the master bedroom, twin beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The floors are original oak hardwood throughout except for tile in the kitchen and bath. The separate dining area seats four comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, etc.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Sandra Dooley

I am a native Floridian (a rare breed!) and grew up in Gainesville, FL, just about 3 hours north of Treasure Island. I have always loved the beach and spent many summers going to the beaches on the East Coast of Florida. I discovered the beautiful beaches in this area a couple of years ago and fell in love! I moved to Treasure Island in May of 2012 and have enjoyed every minute of life in paradise.

Sandra Dooley purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Sandra Dooley chose Treasure Island

I like to experience the local culture and flavors when I travel. This cottage has the charm and history that represent a true Florida beach cottage. The beach is so close...a 2 minute walk without even crossing the street. The property has a casual, private and friendly feel. The central courtyard and covered patio area are completely enclosed by privacy fencing and offer a nice place to relax away from the sun.

What makes this cottage unique

I chose this unit because I liked the idea of being upstairs and having the ability to leave the windows open all the time for the wonderful breezes. This unit also is the only one with it's own private balcony and does not front on busy Gulf Blvd. A perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

Snowbird Haven

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location (proximity to the beautiful beach/Johns Pass). Appropriately furnished, comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen. Free washer/dryer on site, a definite plus as well as use of beach toys, umbrellas and chairs. Outside common areas and Barbeque great addition. Sandra popped by on the last day to meet us and see how everything went. A caring and engaged owner. We enjoyed our 9 days at this cottage immensely and wish we could have stayed longer!

Fabulous Stay on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very clean and the decor was nice and beachy. Beds were comfy and location to beach was very convenient. Washer & dryer on site was helpful as well. Only thing I might add is a few extra towels.

Cant wait to return

  • 5 of 5

Decided last minute to take a holiday with another couple. Couldn't be happier that we chose to stay here! The cottage was very well kept, with a fully stocked kitchen and comfortable beds! I slept like a baby (though not waking up to three kids may have helped too) :)

Located just steps from the beach, it was very convenient for us, and the cottage provided all the umbrellas, chairs, beach supplies you need! Very close to Johns Pass so we walked there a few times as well. We were also very happy with the soft sand and the smaller, less populated beach. The only thing I'd pick on is the toilet. It backed up on us after only being there a day, which caused a momentary panic. There was a sign on the back of the toilet, which we did not see. But it didn't ruin the trip or cause us to be unhappy with our accommodations. Just could use an upgrade there.

Thanks Sandra for sharing your beautiful property with us. Hope to return next year!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My son and I enjoyed a relaxing long weekend at this cottage on Treasure Island. We have been here before and will definitely be back! It's so nice to stay here at Gulf Sounds and have everything you need! We enjoyed trying new restaurants and even a couple of our favorites. The owner, Sandra, was very accommodating and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Everything is so clean and comfortable! Don't miss out on this hidden gem!

Treasure Island Hideaway

We loved our beach cottage. This was a fishing trip for the guys and they were so close to Johns Pass plus right on the beach! Couldn't get any better. Looking forward to next year...and we'll absolutely come back to this wonderful hideaway!

Pappy "C"

  • 5 of 5

The four of us really enjoyed the Treasure Island area and the cottage. The cottage has an old Florida feel and was very comfortable with easy access to the beach. Cottage was very well furnished along with free laundry and wi-fi. Bath was a little tight but OK since we were only there for seven nights. Having an enclosed area for the cottages with a courtyard and upper deck gives you plenty of privacy. Hope to stay here again !!
