Great place to stay
Absolutely beautiful beach. Few places in Florida like this. We had 5 adults and 5 children and love the convience of the kids being able to run up and down to the beach.
The house is comfy and clean. Plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, etc. Just show up with a bathing suit and pajamas.
Great back porch to hang out and hide from the sun midday.
This was our second stay and we had a great time.
"Hidden Gem" Summer Family Vacation 2019
This house is more than advertised when it comes to a beach house. The location could not be any better if your looking for a relaxing family vacation with unlimited activities yet a feel of having your own private beach. Multiple restaurants and shopping within walking distance or short drive yet because of the residential location the white sands and gorgeous waters of the beach was never overcrowded. Vacation started as soon as we walked in the door of the house. Very spacious, clean and comfortable throughout the entire house. The main living area is wide open, the bedrooms and the efficiencies area perfect and the bathrooms are updated. This is an older beach house with many updates and is clean. The porch and the deck overlooking the gulf has views that couldn't be beat (sunrise from the top deck over the bay and sunset over the gulf). Excellent amenities for the house as well as things for the beach (kids toys, chairs/umbrella, wagon to carry everything, etc.) The only complaint we had was a week wasn't enough in Treasure Island, absolutely a "Hidden Gem" and we will be back to the Bama Beach House.
Wonderful Location---Wonderful Rental--Highly Recommend
Our extended family of 8 had a lovely week in this Treasure Island Rental. Susan, the owner, was extremely responsive and easy to work with. The location was great, as we were near everything yet the beach right in front of the house wasn't at all crowded. The covered porch on the beach side provided shade all day, and the built in bar type seating, facing the Gulf, was well utilized daily! Sunsets on the upper deck were awesome. We love to play games at the beach and the kitchen table was perfect for this. We also enjoy cooking fresh seafood and the kitchen was well equipped with high quality pots and pans and cookware. The kitchen is also wonderfully integrated into the living space, so the cook is not isolated while preparing dinner masterpieces. We were worried about the lack of a dishwasher, but it wasn't really an issue. The four baths were a bonus, as was the provided beach towels, boggie boards, beach wagon, and misc beach items. We had everything we needed for our vacation. If we make it to the Gulf again, we would very happily rent Bama Beach House again!
Wonderful home and very helpful host. Location is outstanding. Would not hesitate to go back.
My only tiny suggestion might be to have a few extra blankets available. There was bit of a cold snap for a couple of days and we were all cold at night. Thankfully it didn't last and we got right back to enjoying the perfect beach location. Thank you so much!
Treasure on TI!
Spacious, meticulously-maintained house steps from the water and white sands! Location is central to everything! The house is very well equipped—kitchen, towels, beach chairs and toys so you’ll never be at a loss for anything. If you are, a grocery store is within easy walking distance. We were concerned about privacy, but this area of the beach does not get much traffic because it’s at the mid point between public access spots. My favorite part of the property was a white sand area just steps from the door and shaded by big pine trees—perfect in the early afternoon when the sun is high and the beach is really hot—you can read or fall asleep in a chaise longue listening to the waves! Great picnic table outside too! The coded door makes things really easy—no hunting for keys! Outside shower great for minimizing bringing the beach into the Bama House.
The house is well located so we were able to go on many road trips in different directions—seeing manatees in Crystal River, Universal—they are long road trips (four hours round trip) but very unique and worthwhile—but hanging out and chilling on the beach (great shelling beach) was every bit as wonderful! Susan was a wonderful host—very responsive and helpful—so grateful for our time on Treaure Island!
House was great: the beach was absolutely beautiful
The house is terrific for large groups. It is laid out to accommodate different pairs of vacationers. The kitchen and great room are roomy and comfy and the view from there is fantastic. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend this property !
