Treasure Island Studio Rental Photos and Description

Discover why Guests of the Studio return Year after Year

Guests hold dear a secret that I'll share with you.

Stay at the beach in style…Ideally located on the top floor lends itself to the higher ceilings that only top floor can provide. Direct unobstructed Gulf front facing, with a prate balcony that overlooks the gulf in every direction. Take in World famous sunsets, dolphins at play, and an ocean of gulf activity right from your own oasis.

Studios unique ambiance is unparalleled in many ways. The enchanting sounds of the surf can be enjoyed for the simple fact of being out of hearing range of the pool,tiki-bar,and central elevators.

Many thanks to all my guests for their fun,and helpful reviews!

Scroll down to read Tips & Advise from previous guests: Sunsets were awesome. We also loved seeing dolphins right from our room!!

To find the best, and biggest shells you have to go in the water at least waist high, and feel with feet,catch,and pull up.

Check out Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach...neat Historical Hotel

Great early bird specials @ Salt Rock Grill,and JD's Seafood.Gators, open till 2:am. On Sunday nights, walk about 1/2 mile- beach drum circle. Visit Fort De Soto Park, and see dolphins off the fishing pier. Sloppy Joe's, Mother of all Mai Tai's. Ocean Breeze,Great Tapa's. Took Helicopter ride @ The Hanger in St.Pete. Ellenton Outlet Mall, if you have a rainy day. Loved the bed. Wi-fi is the best! It was great being able to look down on the beach...the best time to see dolphins(I think)is in the late afternoon.Hit the beach early or late in the day,so you can beat the heat. Sunscreen! Pinellas county doesn't sell liquor after 12:am,this surprised us, so purchase early. If you want cardio during your vacation,take the occasional stairway up & down to the beach/pool/car. I love the fact that you use method soap.That's awesome! We usually see dolphins in the early to mid-morning. Enjoy every minute you are here-it goes way too fast. Breath deep, and smile. Favorite Restaurant-Sea Critters-fabulous fresh fish.Try using the free golf cart rides from John's Pass to Passe-a-Grille.

Famous John's Pass Village: Within walking distance from the condo. Restaurants like Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Fishing excursions, jet ski, para-sailing rentals.

About Laurie Engler

A Floridian. I grew up around beaches, on both coasts. I love the sun. We reside 45 minutes away from the beach studio that we rent out for others to also enjoy.

Laurie Engler purchased this studio in 2009

Why Laurie Engler chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Proximity to the enchanting shoreline of any other property of its kind in Treasure Island. This direct Gulf front facing studio is within the property of the Island Inn beach resort condominium. Resorts address:9980 Gulf Blvd. Treasure Island, Florida 33706

Location is ideal to the Arts,culture,Historical sites,Boutiques,Local markets,Restaurants, Rentals for water sports

What makes this studio unique

Hello Beach! Direct Gulf front Studio, and a private beach balcony, with views of the beach on out past the horizon from within the studio itself are unforgetable. Having a wonderful Sixth(Top) floor location,besides being on the furthest end away from the pool and Tiki-Bar is perfect. Beach Chairs and Oversized beach towels are provided. Meticulously kept.

What a Place!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was by far the most beautifully remodeled of any I have ever seen. You truly cannot get any better than this as far as a couples' stay. Everything was wonderfully set up, clean and accommodating. It did not feel as though I was in a hotel/resort, it was very homey feeling. I was so grateful because we were unfortunate to receive bad weather during our 3 day weekend stay, but being able to come back to the studio to peace and beauty, made things much better. We are definitely going to return and hope for better weather next time. I am recommending this place to my co-workers and family. The owner is also a pleasure to work with. Such a gem, this place!

Perfect Studio Condo for a Couples' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at Laurie's studio. It was right on the beach and Publix was only a mile away! You can't beat being able to look out the window throughout the unit and see that beautiful water. The beach was great (you could rent a cabana for $30/day) and the Gulf water was warm - can't beat it! Would definitely recommend this studio to other couples looking to stay directly on the beach.

Fantastic beach property!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. Excellent view of the ocean from the balcony. Since the property was located on the top floor , it was very quiet. We used the pool every day and found it to be well maintained and not crowded at all. We plan to stay here again next year!

We loved our stay at the studio! It was very well appointed and well decorated. Everything you could need, from beach chairs and coolers, to wine glasses, are all available for your use. You have a great view of the ocean from your balcony and there is even a tiki bar right downstairs. The location is great - just a couple minutes from Johns Pass and plenty of restaurants. Checking in and out were easy and Laurie was very helpful. We will be back!
