A real Treasure
A small group of friends and I stayed at this condo for 7 nights based on it's location and price. And we were absolutely NOT disappointed! We all loved this place. And wow...what a location!! The building sits right on the Bay, with amazing views from the two large balconies that overlook the water. And the beach was literally right across the street, with a beach access entrance that was at most 100 feet away. Perfect!
The condo was far enough away from busy areas that it felt almost like a secluded part of the beach, but was within easy walking distance to almost anything you would need. There is a Publix super market less than a half mile away on the same side of the street so it was a quick drive to pick up groceries for the week, or a short walk to pick up a few things as needed. A few more blocks up was the "downtown" area with shopping, restaurants, and bars. Ricky T's and Sloppy Joe's were two favorites. Very very easy and convenient.
Heading the opposite direction from the condo, you can take a quick stroll down the sandy beach to
Caddy's and Ka'Tiki. Two local hotspots. Caddy's has table service out on the beach, which was amazing. You can have dinner, sip on a margarita, and watch the sunset over the Gulf. Doesn't get much better.
The condo itself was great. 3 bedrooms all with queen sized beds, and 2 full baths. The unit was comfortable and very well appointed. The main balcony, with sliding glass doors off of the living room as well as the 1st floor bedroom, had a good sized table and chairs that we used often. We spent a lot of time relaxing out there, looking at the amazing view, and on several occasions we saw dolphins swimming directly in front of us. One even came within 20 feet of the shore of the condo's private beach.
The communal outside area was fantastic, and we grilled out several different times. The neighbors were all very friendly. One weekend day they had a small outdoor party during the afternoon and actually invited us down to hang out with them. We definitely felt welcome. The owner was also very easy to get in touch with, and was very willing to answer any questions we had during the stay. He was very very helpful, and even gave us some recommendations on some of his favorite places.
Overall I would HIGHLY recommend this condo. It was perfect for us. A great value, a great location, and made for a fantastic 7 day vacation. If I find myself in Treasure Island again I will definitely be staying here.
