About LeeAnn Bakos

We enjoy the world famous Treasure Island Beaches and the beautiful Suncoast & greater Tampa Bay area of Western Florida. After building our home, we received Treasure Islands 'Beautification Award' in 2008. Living on Sunset Beach is truly 'living on island time.'

LeeAnn Bakos purchased this house in 2006

Why LeeAnn Bakos chose Sunset Beach

It's a quiet neighborhood off the beaten path but still near everything the tourists amenities provide.

What makes this house unique

Available for separate reservation, is a private but attached one bedroom apartment. This will allow you to bring the nanny along, grandparents, friends or additional family members that want to come on vacation but still have their own individual apartment. View listing #297759 for pictures and additional information. Please remember that this will be a separate booking.

What an amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

As we all know, pictures sometimes don't do the object justice. Just think of taking pictures of an amazing full moon...So it is here. The house is just beautiful, accommodating, gorgeous. Fully outfitted, it allowed my entire family (children, grands) respite from life to enjoy each other and the beach one block away. The kitchen is so well provided we enjoyed home cooked meals so it stayed within our budget. The house is a home. The gift of the owner's mother to assist us next door was the best part. Like living with family. We can't wait to return. We are so happy we stayed here and not at a hotel.

Nice and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family! We enjoyed the close proximity of the beach, we spent lots of time at the beach and was easy to walk back and forth if we needed anything. The house really does have everything you need. All you have to do is buy your food and your set for a laid back relaxing time in a quiet neighborhood. Lea was an amazing hostess from day 1 we felt like family. We are already talking about our return trip.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Firstly being greeted with hugs and kisses from Lea we were shown round this wonderful house. So many extra little touches were much appreciated. The beds are to die for - so comfy. Everywhere is spotless and none of us wanted to leave. I cannot praise this villa highly enough.

The area is clean and just a couple of minutes walk from the sandy beach with Caddy's for some live music and casual food and Katiki bar just down the road. Everybody is so friendly and made us very welcome. We absolutely loved it here and would highly recommend. Hope to return one day.
