About Pia Cummings

We are from Louisville, Ky., and have visited Treasure Island many times. I am a former TV newscaster who currently works as a 'pretend patient' for the University of Louisville Medical School. My husband, Chris, is a Clinical Psychologist who also teaches wellness and addiction classes at Louisville's Bellarmine University. This is not just a rental unit for us, as WE plan on spending time here throughout the year. As the result, each time you visit, you'll find Birdsong #11 more like home. Treasure Island was magical for us the first time we visited and we married a year later. We hope it will be magical for you as well!! Great R & R.

Pia Cummings purchased this condo in 2012

Why Pia Cummings chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Our condo is so comfortable, quiet, relaxing and convenient, you won't want to leave it. Plus, it's absolutely has the BEST location on the beach and is central to everything. Believe me, you won't want to leave this wonderful place.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is so well equipped and even includes beach towels, a beach blanket, deluxe tilting beach umbrella, beach chairs, and a cooler. Most folks bring a car but if you're flying in from Canada or the EU, you could get by without one. Jimmy operates free beach rides for tips. The airport shuttle is $25.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(as written in the guest book) Dear Chris and Pia,

Thank you for the thoughtful welcoming gifts, what a pleasant surprise!

Our stay here was much too short and a great change of pace after Disney. We were very impressed with the condo and Treasure Island. Our boys enjoyed collecting sea shells, conk shells, and sand dollars. It was their first time at the ocean: what a great experience. We really enjoyed and had a lot of fun at the pool next door, too.

Your condo is fantastic. We were so happy to discover coffee in the cupboard as well as the many home essentials and toiletries. Thank you for all the extras and for making us feel like welcomed guests.

Overall, for a family of 4 this condo was great

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well maintained & right on the beach. Everything was perfect, if there was only one suggestion I could make and that would be to maybe update the bathtub area.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Fly to the Birdsong condo for the best vacation on Treasure Island!

  • 5 of 5

Exquisitely furnished and most comfortable condo just a short (3 minute) walk to the white sands! Even during the hottest season, we enjoyed the fully furnished condo with all the trimmings--from lovely furnishings to a fully stocked kitchen and refrigerator conveniences (for eating in) to lawn chairs and floats for the water! Grocery store only a block away and close to other beaches and wonderful restaurants. Birdsong is not a high-rise (which my family loved) and we felt so close to the water. Making arrangements with Pia was a dream--I can't wait to book with her in the fall for another true vacation! (Even chocolate peppermints welcomed us to Birdsong#11)! Thank you, Pia and Chris!

Great beach condo

  • 4 of 5

We come to Treasure Island every year in July to visit family. This condo was very convenient and had everything we needed for our stay. There are plenty of beach supplies like noodles, boogie boards, towels, etc. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of extra towels and sheets. My husband slept on the pull out sofa and found it to be pretty comfortable. My 8 yr old daughter and I slept in the bedroom and were very comfortable with plenty of room. There is a pocket door between the main living area and bedroom which was nice to reduce noise from the TV at night after our daughter had gone to bed. I also noticed what looked to be a twin mattress under the bed that could be used for another child. The location is very convenient to restaurants - many within walking distance. Publix is a 3-5 min walk. Sloppy Joe's at the Bilmar hotel is about a 3 min walk and the food is great. The Italian restaurant in the Thunderbird was also pretty good. We had a minor issue (out of the owners control) which Pia responded to immediately and made right. We plan on staying here again next year and definitely recommend it.

Top stay on the Gulf of Mexico in Treasure Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have vacationed in Treasure Island, Florida, for the last ten years. This year, we had a most wonderful time staying at the Birdsong in Unit #11. I have not had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Pia, in person but working with her to book her lovely condo was a pleasure. She was so very polite and helpful. Her condo is really lovely and there was nothing we wanted for in the way of necessities. The home is beautifully decorated. The bed and couch (pull-out) were very comfortable -- very important when staying away from your own bed for 13 nights. :)

It's sometimes hard to tell what you're getting when booking online and going by the pictures provided. It can make you wonder if you're really signing up for a good thing. When we arrived and walked in, I was more than pleased and my expectations were met and then some!

The location is perfect... This condo is right on the beautiful beach of the Gulf of Mexico. There is a Publix grocery store nearby and plenty of great places to eat that are all within walking distance. And bonus for the husband...parking was very safe and easy!

Thank you, Pia, for opening and offering up your home away from home for others. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would love to come back! You really know how to make others feel welcome!

Thank you and God bless... Jim and Deb Coe from Galesburg, Michigan

The location is the BEST on the beach. You could literally do without a car. It's a 2-minute walk to Publix Grocery, 3-minutes to Walgreen's and Walgreen's Liquors, and 5 minutes walk to Ricky T's bar/restaurant, Sloppy Joe's at the Bilmar, and Bazzie's Beach Bar. The Treasure Island Boardwalk starts just 2 properties North of the Birdsong and parallels the beach for a mile. There's also Jimmy's free beach cab that runs on Gulf Blvd. A very short walk to Central Ave allows you to hop a shuttle downtown and to the St. Pete Pier. If you're flying in for a long stay, you could truly get by without a car.
