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 Florida Central Gulf Coast

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.

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.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we expected. The house was perfect for our family and was just as described. It was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the outdoor patio each day. The proximity to the beach is awesome! We spent a lot of time at the beach and could walk back to the house easily if we needed anything. Lea was such a wonderful hostess. She made us feel right at home and was there if we needed anything. The house was in a quiet neighborhood. We took walks every morning and always felt safe. We didn't use the apartment that was also available but Lea showed it to us and it would meet our needs if it was just the two of us. We had such a great time and didn't want to leave!!!

wonderful house just minutes from beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever staying in this clean and spacious two store house just across the street from the quieter side of Treasure Island. The kitchen gave tons of room to cooking and the bedrooms and 3(!) bathrooms gave more than enough space for a relaxing time when not on the beach. Can't recommend this property highly enough.

My adult daughter and I stayed in the "Walk Barefoot" house for a wonderful 4 or 5 nights while I was researching a move to Florida. This spot on the Sunset Beach of Treasure Island was the perfect location with easy access, a great beach just steps away, and ALL the comforts of home. We were so welcomed ... and entertained ... by Leah and we were truly disappointed when we had to say goodbye. Nice casual beach food and drink and live music within a 2 minute walk. Plenty of nice restaurants within a 5 minute drive. If I go back to that part of Florida I hope there's an opening at 298384!!
