About Staci

Staci has been vacationing on Treasure Island since 1998 and fell in love with the island the minute she stepped foot on the beach!

Staci purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Staci chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The cottage is located in the perfect spot, steps to the beach and just a 15 minute walk to John's Pass. We also love the privacy provided by the fenced in complex.

The Gulf Sounds cottage #2 was very clean and well appointed. The proximity to the beach, excellent. The cottage is also close to many restaurants in the area. However, a downside was that the cottage is located on a highly trafficked and noisy road. If you don't mind traffic noise, this is a pleasant place to stay.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay at the cottage and we love it. Close to dining and shopping and just a short walk to the beach.

Stacy (the owner) is very responsive to any questions you have.

It's nice to have a laundry area for guest use as well as beach chairs, and other items you might need for the beach.

Great little cottage.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay. The cottage had everything we needed, all the comforts of home. The location was great a short walk to restaurants and shops. All of our interactions with the owners were easy, speedy and friendly. Would definitely book here again!

Perfect Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived and opened the door I knew I had booked a great place for my family to stay for a week. So homely, and clean and just perfect. I loved all the beach theming. This place really did have everything we needed for a fun weeks vacation at the beach, even if we did get rain everyday! Fully equipped kitchen so we didn't need to eat out all the time, there is a publix a short drive away, so we stocked up on items we didn't bring with us. There is a charcoal grill to use so one night we did a cook out and even made s'mores. The beach is literally steps away from the cottage and they provide everything you need for fun in the sun, beach chairs, umbrellas, toys for the kids, and even towels! And you are just a ten minute walk away from Johns Pass where there are great souvenir shops, restaurants and entertainment. We are already about to book again for next year and we can't wait to go back. Staci even sent me a text the night we arrived to make sure everything was satisfactory and it was personal and great to know she was a text away if we needed anything, but we didn't!

Gulf Sounds, the 'Treasure' of Treasure Island beach cottages, is an easy, safe 30 yard stroll to the beach boardwalk and the pristine beaches of Treasure Island. Our bungalow/cottage is located in a small, intimate resort and is very private yet in the middle of all the activities of Treasure Island and Madeira Beach. You can access the beach in less than a minute and easily walk to World Famous John's Pass with its numerous fresh seafood restaurants, unique shops, ice cream parlors, chartered fishing boats,and waterfront bars. The Beach trolley stops at our corner, so you can visit all the beaches for one low fare per day. A public boat ramp is across the street. One small dog may be allowed with owners prior approval and the payment of a pet fee.
