This is the best find ever! Awesome location...right on beach...saw dolphins swimming form the balcony while having morning coffee. Room has plenty of room for us, and everything you need. walk out in the morning and stroll the beaches. Gorgeous sunsets!

the only downside (which was beyond anyone's control) is some water issues where minimal ht water one day and the last day we needed to get up early to get a shower as they thought they were going to have to turn off the water for a repair (whole building).

would tell everyone a "must stay but then we wouldn't get back in :)

thank you! was wonderful!

Mom/Daughter retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Island Inn 318 was all we needed for a fantastic 3 day retreat. We were comfortable and had ample space. A great view with quiet surroundings. Courteous staff that met all of our needs. Restaurants and groceries nearby. Check out Willie’s on Corey Street, Stulley’s at John’s Pass and go for grouper at Hurricanes at St Pete’s. The Taco Bus was a great lunch stop.

Stay at Shore Thing

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at the Shore Thing #318. The condo had all the amenities you need to be comfortable in the condo as well as on the beach. We stayed for about 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The staff at Island Inn were pleasant and worked hard to keep the Resort looking nice.

Fun and Sun at The Shore Thing

  • 5 of 5

I recently got home from a fabulous relaxing vacation at The Shore Thing. This was a return visit. Last time was three years ago and I spent 3 days here, this time I did a full week and couldn’t be more pleased. Like everybody says: the views are amazing, the water is warm and wonderful and this condo is adorable, clean and comfortable. The owners provide a lot of amenities which made things all the more comfortable and enjoyable. The resort isn’t fancy, but the staff is super nice and helpful and the location, right on the sand, and the private balcony facing the Gulf, makes these units an unbelievable deal. Next time I hope to return sooner and dare I say, maybe for a two week vacation! I LOVE this place!

Good Times

  • 5 of 5

Ok let me first say this is an older resort that needs a few updates but my family and I aren't to picky on places to stay. The room was clean and very nice. The water pressure was great to. The view off your personal balcony was breath taking as we saw dolphins at all times through out the day. It has an average pool and very friendly staff. I would not hesitate to stay here again as everything was well stocked and there was a good amount of beach equipment in the room to use also. The only complaint I could have is stepping on a sting ray and being stung, but that was all my fault by not shuffling my feet.

Explore pristine Florida beaches in the St. Petersburg area, home to Madeira Beach and Treasure Island. Pick from houses, condos and cottages, and get ready to enjoy sugar white sand and warm breezes. Vacations in the St. Petersburg area offer abundant outdoor recreation – on and off the water – a lively arts scene, and award-winning restaurants.

Madeira Beach, located west of St. Petersburg is home to John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, a fun attraction for all ages. John's Pass, or the Pass to locals, offers top dining and nightlife options, family-friendly attractions, shopping and water sports. While walking the 1,100-foot boardwalk, see alligators at The Alligator Attraction and dolphins playing in the Gulf's waters. Walk into dozens of unique shops that sell everything from beachwear to shells to find the perfect souvenir or gift.

Madeira Beach's restaurants welcome family and friends to try the fresh local flavor. Many top-rated restaurants at the Pass feature entertainment, specials and events as well. The Seafood Festival at John's Pass – held annually in October – hosts more than 100,000 guests to celebrate food, music, and arts and crafts.

Water lovers can parasail, rent jet skis or deep-sea fish to complete their beach vacation. John's Pass is also a popular fishing destination and brings in more grouper than any other place in Florida. Visitors can also relax while birdwatching, boating and canoeing, all within easy access of their vacation rental.

Treasure Island – adjacent to St. Petersburg – is another favorite beach town in Florida. Swim, snorkel, fish, parasail and shell at this hot spot, which was named from an early hotel owner who buried and discovered treasure chests on the beach.

Known as a secret spot for sunsets, Treasure Island's 3 miles of beaches serve as the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico with someone special. Treasure Island also offers guests fun-filled attractions and things to do, paired with restaurants serving everything from breakfast to fresh seafood dinners.

Other popular attractions in the St. Petersburg area include the award-winning Salvador Dali Museum and Fort De Soto Park, the largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, measuring more than 1,100 acres.
