Overview

About the property

Kick off your shoes and enjoy a taste of old Florida in our charming beach cottage located on the beach side of Gulf Blvd. We are one of six individually owned units in Gulf Sounds and just a few steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Treasure Island has a sparkling white sand beach with clear blue-green waters. Our beach is closer to the water and quieter than the many of the busy hotel beach areas in Treasure Island. We are centrally located with many restaurants, shops, and activities within walking distance. There is a public boat ramp across the street and the beach trolley stop is on the corner.

Our bright and airy beach cottage is upstairs allowing you to take advantage of cool night breezes and to leave your windows open with no worries. It's quieter too since it is not on the street side of the complex. The unit is just under 700 sf and sleeps 6 with a queen bed in the master bedroom, twin beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The floors are original oak hardwood throughout except for tile in the kitchen and bath. The separate dining area seats four comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, etc.

About Sandra Dooley

I am a native Floridian (a rare breed!) and grew up in Gainesville, FL, just about 3 hours north of Treasure Island. I have always loved the beach and spent many summers going to the beaches on the East Coast of Florida. I discovered the beautiful beaches in this area a few years ago and fell in love! I now live in Treasure Island and have enjoyed every minute of life in paradise.

Sandra Dooley purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Sandra Dooley chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I like to experience the local culture and flavors when I travel. This cottage has the charm and history that represent a true Florida beach cottage. The beach is so close...a 2 minute walk without even crossing the street. The property has a casual, private and friendly feel. The central courtyard and covered patio area are completely enclosed by privacy fencing and offer a nice place to relax away from the sun.

What makes this cottage unique

I chose this unit because I liked the idea of being upstairs and having the ability to leave the windows open all the time for the wonderful breezes. This unit also is the only one with it's own private balcony and does not front on busy Gulf Blvd. A perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

Fabulous find!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 months and could not have had better accomodations anywhere. The cottage is so cute and had everything we needed. We didn't even need the air conditioning on as there was such a nice breeze with the doors open. We had plenty of room for our company and steps from the beach and John's Pass. Sandra was closeby and was there when needed. Thank you Sandra for renting to us and hope to see you again someday. I highly recommend this lovely Key West style cottage.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time here. For the price you won't find much this close to the water. Location is near Johns Pass, so we had lots to do. Would stay there again for sure.

Loved the Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was more than we could have asked for. We been looking for something like this the last time we were here. Loved the cottage. Just the right size for 2-4 people. Everything you need is there. Very close to the beach, plenty of beach equipment, and the outdoor courtyard was perfect. The beds are comfortable with plenty of towels and linens. Walked to Johns Pass and restaurants in nearby Madera Beach. We will be back!

Quiet, comfortable, very accommodating!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation was absolutely perfect!! A huge part of that was this very nice cottage we were able to stay in for a week. It is more than we could have imagined and the amenities it includes are equally as great. The are is so wonderful with walking distance to johns pass and very close to the beach as well. The owner of the cottage went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure our stay was perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice relaxing getaway. We are already trying to plan our next trip.

Many activities are within walking distance (.8 miles) at John's Pass, including dining, night life, shopping, dinner and sunset cruises, parasailing, fishing, and jet ski rentals. There is also a paved 2 mile trail fronting on the beach for walking, riding bikes, or skating. Nearby St. Petersburg offers a multitude of shopping, dining and entertainment options. Favorite restaurants include the Middle Grounds Grill (upscale dinner), Foxy's Cafe (reasonably priced breakfast, lunch or dinner) and The Frog Pond (reasonably priced breakfast/brunch). Sea Hags is also reasonable and great for lunch or dinner and live music and dancing.
