About Patti Scott

We are a professional couple with 3 grown boys and one daughter-in-love.

We love the outdoors and great family gatherings.

Patti Scott purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Patti Scott chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We were looking for a place in Florida where we could retire but enjoy vacations with family in the meanwhile. For about 2 years, we searched all over Florida for the perfect place. We didn't want a fancy condo, concrete jungle, or party place. Our realtor showed us this "Treasure Island Oasis" and we fell in love. It is a true community with great neighbors, quiet little streets, and close to all kinds of fun activities! The beach is expansive and one of the prettiest I've seen. We are a block away from the boardwalk to the beach. I love the beach but also love a cup of coffee in our private back yard "jungle" or on the dock by the intracoastal waterway access -- just steps from the house.

We love for family and friends to vacation there. We also love having guests, many of whom return year after year and make the cottage their "home away from home."

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet and private and great for all ages!

Thanksgiving on the beach with family. This house had everything we needed. Close to the beach, resturants and shopping. Something for everyone.

Quaint and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Hi Patty thank you for your quick response. No. B. The only things we found was that the shower wasn't t draining in the master bedroom . Also the garden in back needed to cleaned up . We had to swipe and clean the back area to sit out . The management company told us the gardener was coming but he didn't show up . It look like it hadn't been cleaned in a while .

The only other thing I was disappointed we couldn't bbq . We bought steaks and charcoal but then found in the book we couldn't bbq . But on the positive side it was very conveniently located and we were quite comfortable. It was nice having a full kitchen and the extra bathroom . We enjoyed ourselves . I didn't receive the refund that was sent . Does it go back I my credit card ?

Thanks again ,

Owner's Response: Hi Vicki, Thanks for the feedback! I'll be sure to get with the property management company about the shower and the garden. I know it was disappointing not to be able to grill, but it is an insurance liability for possible fire damage since the back garden has so much vegetation. I refunded your security/damage deposit directly to the card you used to pay. I'm so glad things were comfortable and that you all had a good time! Please come back anytime! Patti

Excellent... all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! It was very clean, quiet, and accommodating for all of our needs and then some. Our family had a wonderful week and look forward to doing it again. We were a 3 minute walk to the ocean and had all the restaurants, ice cream shops, grocery stores we needed within a mile or two. Everything worked as it should. One of our favorite parts was the outdoor shower (brilliant) which made it very easy to rinse off after the beach before bringing all the sand in the house. They thought of everything!

Treasure Island Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We love the Treasure Island Cottage. We have stayed at this location twice and both times were awesome. The cottage, which reflects the laid back beach style of the area, has all the amenities needed in a home environment, making the cottage a perfect rental property for a family on vacation. The cottage, which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, was clean and well maintained. The back yard is beautiful and the landscaping of the property adds to the ambiance. The location is great, with the beach and other amenities within walking distance. Patti, thank you for sharing this little gem.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a awesome time at the cottage. Its is clean, well kept, very close to the beach and in a great part of Treasure Island. Plus, its cat friendly. I'm in the military and we stayed there while waiting to close on our house, one of the best decisions made during this move. Thank you very much!
