Clean, comfortable cottage less than 100' from the beach. No roads to cross.

Cottage #1 at Gulf Sounds, the 'TREASURE' of Treasure Island beach cottages, is an easy, safe 30 yard stroll to the beach boardwalk and the pristine beaches of Treasure Island. Our bungalow/cottage is in a small, intimate resort and is very private. Yet, step outside the gate and you are a short walk from the middle of all the activities of Treasure Island and Madeira Beach. You can access the beach in less than a minute, or easily walk to World Famous John's Pass with its numerous fresh seafood restaurants, unique shops, ice cream parlors, chartered fishing boats,and waterfront bars. The Suncoast Beach Trolley stops at our corner, so you can visit all the beaches clear down to Clearwater for one low fare per day. A public boat ramp is located across the street.

Our charming Key West style 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage has almost 700 square feet and has been recently repainted and redecorated with new furnishings and appliances. Our cottage offers beautiful oak hardwood floors, a fully stocked kitchen, a tiled bath, a queen sleeper sofa, a love seat, a comfortable side chair, coffee and end tables in the living room, and seating for four in the dining area. Gulf Sounds is lushly landscaped and offers a covered patio and charcoal barbecue grill, a second floor sundeck, outside shower, and a fully fenced property that provides exceptional privacy.

We accept all Major Credit Cards as well as PAYPAL!!

About Angela Liddell

We are both transplanted New Englanders - Angela from Gloucester, MA and Ken from Medford, MA - just outside Boston (Go Sawks). We've been married for 40 years and together for 45, yet we're only 48 - go figure (lol). We've lived in a number of states and travel a good bit, but we're always drawn to the sea. Our new Granddaughter brought us to FL. Treasure Island keeps us here.

Why Angela Liddell chose Saint Petersburg

As soon as we saw this cottage it felt like the beach we knew and loved. A bit of Key West, a touch of Cape Ann. And the best part - the beach is only steps away. It is a particularly wonderful stretch of beach - lots of shells for collectors, great fishing, we've never seen it crowded, and it's just a short walk to the water. It would seem that the number of people that have reserved time this year,and into next - who have been staying here for years speaks to the cleanliness of the cottage, the comfortable setting within the compound and the proximity to our wonderful stretch of beach. If that doesn't, our reviews certainly do.

What makes this Cottage unique

You don't need a car to access the full range of eateries, live music, deep sea fishing tours, boat rentals, parasailing, jet ski rentals, and so much more. Many options for getting around are available. It's a short walk to John's Pass. The Beach Trolley stops in front of Gulf Sounds and will take you up and down the beach or to the local supermarket - Publix - along Gulf Blvd. But the gem is our beach. Access is only steps away from the cottage.

                                                                Cozy, cute!

                                                                Kim W.

                                                                Talk about OCD clean...this cottage is it! So close to the beach and decorated PERFECTLY!! The twin bedroom is close to the road, but if you have sleepers who have to have white noise or a fan, they will sleep through it. It would be nice to have a cart to help carry things to the beach. We planned a late flight to enjoy a last beach day, but with a strict 10 a.m. checkout we chose to shop the day away instead. The owners Ken and Angela are super nice, and we even made some new friends during our stay!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks, Kim, for the kind review. It was great meeting you. Sorry we couldn't accommodate a later checkout. Our cleaning person washes EVERYTHING, down to mattress covers and the duvets. If we have a same-day turnaround its tough to extend checkout. But we do when we can. When we travel, we like to be comfortable in our home-away-from-home. And clean is the first thing that makes us comfortable. We want that for our guests.

                                                                Thanks for the feedback! We'll get a cart. Hope to see you again next year.

                                                                Good enought

                                                                We were searching for the quiet place with a small private yard because we have a baby. And it was! Everything was perfect, beach is just few steps away and almost private cause there is no big hotels nearby. The only thing the house is directly on the Gulf Blvd. and it was a bit noisy at night. The location is very convenient. St. Petersburg has few nice gardens and state parks where you can enjoy the green and different animals. There are some bars for young people around with live music.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Very cute cottage. We loved it❗

                                                                Yes, it was VERY clean.

                                                                The beach was perfect with gorgeous sunsets!

                                                                We would definitely stay here again.

                                                                Great Place to Stay

                                                                This is a great place to stay. Close to the beach and all activities / restaurants. Neat as a pin, with linens provided and a great personal touch from the owners. Highly recommend Ken and Angela's place !

                                                                property was great had everything including beach chairs,umbrellas, and toys.

                                                                greg l.

                                                                We really did enjoy staying at the cottage and will consider returning next time we go down. The owners have everything you would want (within reason) for a nice stay. There were only two drawbacks to the cottage the bathroom was very small and there was no dishwasher. Neither create a real hardship. We are just had a great time. This is the cleanest rental that we have ever had in the 20 plus years of travel with VRBO. The cottage defiantly has a different feel then being in a large condo complex. We found it much more relaxing. Looking forward to staying again next spring or fall.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                So glad you want to come back. Great to hear that you found our cottage the cleanest you’ve experienced in your 20 years of VRBO experience. Clean accommodations are important to us as well when we travel – which is why we strive to provide it for our guests. Also, great to hear you appreciate the feel of the cottage – that it is superior to a condo or hotel. Angela decorates it so guests will feel at home. A little disappointed in only 4 stars after all the praise, though. Our vacation spot is a Key West-style beach cottage. I think that is why no one has missed a dish washer before. And the bathroom…? Nevertheless, we thank you for sharing your experience.

                                                                Beautiful, exceptionally clean, fantastic location, love it !!

                                                                My husband and I love this cottage, this was our third visit. It had everything in it you could wish for, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean and a fantastic location. We would especially like to mention the owners Ken & Angela, on our recent stay we had a visit from hurricane Irma, we received great support, guidance and kindness from them both,. Thankyou, we really appreciated it.

                                                                Owner's Response:

They don't get many hurricanes in Wales, so I'm sure you have some well-earned tales to tell. Thanks for your compliments on the cottage. Angela works hard to keep the decor fresh and comfortable, and Brenda keeps it spotless. We hope to see you again.
