Overview

About the property

Clean, comfortable cottage less than 100' from the beach. No roads to cross.

Cottage #1 at Gulf Sounds, the 'TREASURE' of Treasure Island beach cottages, is an easy, safe 30 yard stroll to the beach boardwalk and the pristine beaches of Treasure Island. Our bungalow/cottage is in a small, intimate resort and is very private. Yet, step outside the gate and you are a short walk from the middle of all the activities of Treasure Island and Madeira Beach. You can access the beach in less than a minute, or easily walk to World Famous John's Pass with its numerous fresh seafood restaurants, unique shops, ice cream parlors, chartered fishing boats,and waterfront bars. The Suncoast Beach Trolley stops at our corner, so you can visit all the beaches clear down to Clearwater for one low fare per day. A public boat ramp is located across the street.

Our charming Key West style 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage has almost 700 square feet and has been recently repainted and redecorated with new furnishings and appliances. Our cottage offers beautiful oak hardwood floors, a fully stocked kitchen, a tiled bath, a queen sleeper sofa, a love seat, a comfortable side chair, coffee and end tables in the living room, and seating for four in the dining area. Gulf Sounds is lushly landscaped and offers a covered patio and charcoal barbecue grill, a second floor sundeck, outside shower, and a fully fenced property that provides exceptional privacy.

We accept all Major Credit Cards as well as PAYPAL!!

About Angela Liddell

We are both transplanted New Englanders - Angela from Gloucester, MA and Ken from Medford, MA - just outside Boston (Go Sawks). We've been married for 40 years and together for 45, yet we're only 48 - go figure (lol). We've lived in a number of states and travel a good bit, but we're always drawn to the sea. Our new Granddaughter brought us to FL. Treasure Island keeps us here.

Why Angela Liddell chose Treasure Island

As soon as we saw this cottage it felt like the beach we knew and loved. A bit of Key West, a touch of Cape Ann. And the best part - the beach is only steps away. It is a particularly wonderful stretch of beach - lots of shells for collectors, great fishing, we've never seen it crowded, and it's just a short walk to the water. It would seem that the number of people that have reserved time this year,and into next - who have been staying here for years speaks to the cleanliness of the cottage, the comfortable setting within the compound and the proximity to our wonderful stretch of beach. If that doesn't, our reviews certainly do.

What makes this cottage unique

You don't need a car to access the full range of eateries, live music, deep sea fishing tours, boat rentals, parasailing, jet ski rentals, and so much more. Many options for getting around are available. It's a short walk to John's Pass. The Beach Trolley stops in front of Gulf Sounds and will take you up and down the beach or to the local supermarket - Publix - along Gulf Blvd. But the gem is our beach. Access is only steps away from the cottage.

We loved our stay in cottage #1!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage #1 was just perfect for our week at the beach. From the cleanliness of the cottage to the location of the beach made for an excellent stay! The availability of beach towels, chairs, beach umbrellas, floats, and a cooler were very much appreciated.

Another great aspect is that the cottage location is close to numerous restaurants and shops. We appreciated that we were able to walk to these locations. It was also very nice to have a grocery store in close proximity as well!

Above all else, Ken and Angela Liddell were so very kind and accommodating! We loved our stay and hope to return someday. Thank you for a great week at the beach!

Good enought

  • 4 of 5

We were searching for the quiet place with a small private yard because we have a baby. And it was! Everything was perfect, beach is just few steps away and almost private cause there is no big hotels nearby. The only thing the house is directly on the Gulf Blvd. and it was a bit noisy at night. The location is very convenient. St. Petersburg has few nice gardens and state parks where you can enjoy the green and different animals. There are some bars for young people around with live music.

Owner's Response: PLEASE NOTE: WE (THE LIDDELL'S - THE CURRENT OWNERS) PURCHASED THE COTTAGE IN MAY 2012. THIS REVIEW IS FOR A STAY IN 2009 THAT OCCURRED UNDER THE PREVIOUS OWNERS. SINCE TAKING OWNERSHIP OF THE COTTAGE IN MAY 2012 WE HAVE INVESTED IN A COMPLETE RENOVATION FOR THE COTTAGE. WE BELIEVE AS YOU REVIEW THE COMMENTS FROM OUR GUEST - FROM MAY 2012 ON - YOU'LL SEE COMPLEMENTS ON THE CLEANLINESS, THE QUALITY OF THE ACCOMMODATIONS, THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND THE HOME-Y FEEL WE HAVE CREATED. WE USE THE COTTAGE AS OUR PERSONAL GET-A-WAY FROM TIME-TO-TIME AND WANT OUR GUESTS TO EXPERIENCE ALL THAT WE APPRECIATE ABOUT COTTAGE#1 AT GULF SOUNDS ON TREASURE ISLAND. THANKS FOR CONSIDERING ENTRUSTING US WITH YOUR VACATION.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

From the first email every interaction with Ken and Angela was positive.

The cottage looked just like the pictures. The Liddell’s include so many extras that add the personal touch to make your stay more enjoyable. There were beach towels, beach umbrellas, chairs, and sand toys as well as surprise snacks.

The patio was an inviting place to play Yahtzee in the evenings and reconnect as a family. This was possibly our last vacation together as my daughter will be graduating college in December and hopefully getting a full time job. We created lots of great memories.

Did I mention that it is very close to the beach? The location is amazing!

I would recommend this cottage to families with kids, couples, girlfriends, or anyone wanting a relaxing vacation.

Thanks Angela and Ken!

Super Clean and Inviting!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the CLEAN and cozy cottage! I really enjoyed the beach decor! The master bedroom mattress was also very comfortable. We had everything and more provided during our visit. The cottage has a laundry room with a washer and dryer, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and floats FREE of charge! We also had a beach bag, cooler, ice pack and beach towels for our use! Once again, the place is inviting, cozy and SOOO CLEAN! The beach is just a 1 minute WALK away! I also liked that the cottage was not an apartment or condo. Other cottages were close by but not connected together. Ken and Angela were very accommodating and helpful! They always answered our text messages within a few minutes! We hope to return someday!

Amazing stay at a wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at the beach cottage. It was immaculate, spotless and beautifully decorated. The owners are so friendly and we appreciated the friendly E-mails, information and advice prior to arrival. The cottage is in a beautiful location and having two young children it was ideal that it was so close to the beach and without having to cross any busy roads. Coming from the UK we really appreciated all the amenities that are provided such as beach chairs, umbrellas, cool box and sand toys. The biggest help was that there were also both bath and beach towels supplied so not having to pack towels was brilliant. The cottage is very conveniently located for shops and some wonderful restaurants and so close to John's Pass. We had a wonderful stay and will most definitely book again next time we are over in Florida.
