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 Treasure Island

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.

Perfect space and location for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Treasure Island and the cottage was perfect for our family of 4! It was a great location - close to the beach and John's Pass. We spent many days on the beach and could easily stop back at the cottage for the restroom, snacks, or more beach toys! We also walked to John's Pass quite a bit - the kids loved the drawbridge.

Thanks for a great week!

A wonderful, relaxing vacation

We had the best time in this cozy, Florida cottage! Everything was as promised and Sandra was always available when needed. It is in the perfect spot, only a few steps to a beautiful, Uncrowded beach with very friendly people. We were more then pleased with our choice and will be back.
