Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Treasure Island and the first time at this property. We loved the proximity to the beach and it was very close to a number of restaurants, bars, and a 7-11 store was just a 5 minute walk away. It is also in a very safe neighborhood where we walked each morning. The beach is very nice and you are allowed coolers if you are not in front of Caddy's restaurant, (however signs posted by the city state that alcohol is not allowed on Saturday, Sunday and a few holidays). Leeann and her family were a pleasure to meet and were right next door should there be anything that my husband or I needed.

Thanksgiving and Birthday Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the mother-in-law one bedroom attached to the house for my friends. They found it very comfortable and enjoyed the proximity to the beach. One of the friends had a mobility scooter and safely rode the neighborhood many times.The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped in the kitchen for your needs. The location is close to Publix and restaurants as well as sightseeing in the area. Of course Lea was available if needed and made our stay that much more enjoyable.

Lovely Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here last month and will definitely return! Located just across the street (so easy) from the beach and walking distance to the board walk & restaurants. Miss Lea lives next door and was a dream! She was so helpful and treated us like family. It's often hard to find a place that's so comfortable that you feel right at home. The apartment is light and bright, very clean and has everything you need. We're so glad we found this little spot on Sunset Beach.

Not only was the apartment perfect, clean, and modern.. but the owners were lovely and cordial. The beach is literally across the street and so beautiful, complimented by a island feel. Our stay this autumn was simply relaxing and fun as we were close to various restaurants and fun venues. We are definite returning guests! Thank you for giving us a vacation that we truly loved!

My little home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in both the main house, and 1br apartment back in 2010. I felt so welcome, so comfy that I kept returning every vacation I had, until I moved to St. Pete in 2014 for good. Even when I need a little "getaway" from my daily life here, I check to see if the 1br is free for a weekend. I love Treasure Island/Sunset Beach, and this is the ticket. Close enough to everything, but private enough for vacation. I always check with the owners first for availability when I have friends and family come to town, it's more than just a place to rest your head and watch a sunset. Everything you need is in, and outside of the property, plus love and hugs from Mama Lee. Enjoy!!

Very disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We have just returned from staying in this apartment and are very disappointed with it, at first it looked very nice but we found many things not cleaned, the shower was dirty, the bathroom was dirty and the tea pot expected to boil water was filthy, I found a steak knife in the draw with food attached, the air vent in the bathroom was also dirty.

When we arrived we was greeted my the owners mother who is a sweet lady and she explained the parking situation, we only had one space and the condo upstairs allocated three spaces, it was verbally and written on the fridge where you could park, the several people upstairs decided to ignore that and so for the first three days we found a car parked directly outside our apartment door, this caused an argument and so left a sour taste of how things would progress for the week, they also had a dog who barked for the first two days until we contacted the owner who obviously contacted them because they questioned us the next day.

The apartment is small but adiquate for two people but you have to listen to the people above you moving around, during the day when your out is not a problem, the problem is late at night when your trying to sleep.

The walk to the beach is about a 100yrds but is controlled by the bar there who make it quite clear you can't take coolers on the beach, so you have to walk 200 yards away to get to the beach where you can, not sure how they get away with this but they do. The beach it self is small and when the tide comes in it floods the beach and leaves pools of water until the next day, this makes the beach area quite small.

We didn't enjoy this part of Treasure Island and will not be returning.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry that our guests were not happy and have addressed these issues to help prevent any future problems. We love pets and for that reason we allow them on the property but sometimes have to remind the pet owners to keep them quiet. Our cleaning team has been informed and will keep these comments in mind for the future. Parking is never usually an issue as we have plenty of parking on the premises but sometimes a guest will park in the wrong space. One of the best attractions to our area is the white sandy beach. We love that we don't have to walk a long distance to put our toes in the water. If there is a hard rain then yes, it may make the shoreline a bit closer but still plenty of white sand. There is a popular beach restaurant that allows you to sit and stay all day or visit to watch the most beautiful sunsets anywhere but do not allow coolers on their property. We hope by addressing these issues that our future guests will be able to enjoy a wonderful stay.
