Florida Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

The Beach House is the perfect getaway retreat for couples and families. It is located in a quiet, beachside community comprised of eclectic beach homes on Treasure Island. This upscale beach house was newly renovated and offers custom cottage style cabinets, granite counters, glass block bar with seating for 6, and a Jenn-Air cooking island.

The beach house is just 150 steps from the beautiful, white sandy beaches on the West Coast of Florida. The gentle Gulf waters are perfect for swimming of all ages. The miles of beaches are great for long walks or runs.

Enjoy the beach or walk across the John’s Pass Bridge to a quaint fishing village where numerous unique shops, fresh seafood restaurants, ice cream parlors, chartered fishing boats, jet ski rentals and waterfront bars await you.

Everything you need is within walking distance, so park your car and relax.

Treasure Island is a wonderful vacation destination for the entire family with the best sunsets anywhere!

About Gail

I grew up in a small town in Connecticut. Spent many winters shoveling snow and scraping the ice off my car windshield. Moved to Florida in 1981 to attend the University of South Florida and made Tampa my home. I sure don't miss the cold winters!!

Why Gail chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Treasure Island is a great vacation spot. The beaches are gorgeous and the Gulf is warm. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance of The Beach House.

Great Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Gail's beach house. The location is wonderful in that you have a very short walk to the beach and to shops at John's Pass. This was great for our group, enabling everyone to come and go easily and not be dependent on a car. The house itself is great. While not very big, because of the efficient layout and furnishings, it handles 6-8 people with ease. We ranged from 2-7 in the house and it was quite comfortable. The house has a lot of nice touches, including the really nice decking around 3/4 of the house, nice outdoor furniture and grill, even beach umbrellas/chairs/toys/games. Pretty much anything you could want at the beach. Plus, since we were there over Christmas, Gail even had nice Christmas lights set up around the deck! Also, the wifi was great. So, everything about the house made for a wonderful Christmas vacation!

Treasure Island Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second relatively long-term stay at Gayle's Beach House and was, again, a perfectly wonderful experience. Gayle continues to upgrade her house, which was very nice to begin with, probably accurately described as luxurious by beach standards. The location is ideal- a block off the beach within an easy walk to shopping, dining, and nightlife. The area is ideal for families with children, or without. An added bonus to this property is the abundant outdoor space, either in the sun or shade. Overall, this is a great place to enjoy Florida beach life!

Fabulous Beach House Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our little group of 5 (3 adults and 2 kids) spent a fabulous week at Gail's beach house! From the moment we stepped inside we felt comfortable and 'at home'. Pros: the beach house is spacious, super clean, everything in excellent working condition, comfortable beds and furniture, lots of indoor and outdoor seating options and the handy and fun outdoor shower for post beach rinse offs! Cons: none!

Friendly neighbours, quiet evenings and a short stroll to the beach and fishing, this place has it all! We are frequent Airbnb, VRBO, etc users and this is probably the best property we've ever rented.

Though we didn't meet Gail in person she is an excellent host and great communicator. We loved the games and videos and sand toys, plenty of cooking implements, dishes, glassware, etc. Gail has thought of everything.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Ladies Turkey Trot

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous Beach House!!!It was like it was designed for the 6 of us, who traveled from Buffalo for our annual ladies getaway before the holiday! Just steps from the beautiful Treasure Island beach and a short walk to numerous restaurants ,etc. all made it the perfect location! We walked to breakfast each morning and there is a beautiful path to follow (wide sidewalk) from the public beach almost all the way to the private beach by the cottage.The rooms and decor are beautiful and very spacious!!!Easy to unpack and make your self at home. Everything one could need for a perfect beach vacation is there.The patio and adirondacks on the porch are great for early morning coffee or late afternoon wine time.And if one wants to cook a meal or two, the kitchen has everything you need and plenty of seating. The Tampa airport is only a half hour drive and lots of fun restaurants,shopping and sights to be seen there as well! Look forward to making our way back in the very near,relaxation and great memories were had by all! Highly reccomend!!

Fantastic Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual girls weekend brought us to Gail's home this year. Best trip EVER! Close to the beach. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. The house was beautiful, super clean and spacious. Thank you Gail. I hope to be emailing you soon with next year's rental date.

"Steps to the Beach" accurately describes the location of this vacation home. It's also steps to restaurants, bars, ice cream, etc- - all the things that make vacations enjoyable. The house opens on to a quiet street suitable for visiting neighbors or strolling and a nice place to walk for our 18 month old granddaughter.

Gail has remodeled the interior of the home wonderfully, with beautiful and functional kitchen/eating area and baths, all done in granite and tile. Bedrooms are large and well appointed with ample storage/closet space.

The exterior has very nice decks on three sides, so you always have access to sun and/or shade, as you desire.

Some of the furnishings and linens are not up to par with the quality of the home but are adequate, as are kitchen appliances.

Overall, this is a great vacation home in a great location!
