Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Treasure Island - Cottage #1 at Gulf Sounds

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 37 years and together for 41, yet we're only 48 - go figure (lol). We've lived in a number of states and traveled a bit, but always wanted to be near the water. Our new Granddaughter brought us to FL.

Why Angela Liddell chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

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 are available a short walk away at 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.

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.

Clean, bright, and very comfortable!! As soon as you walk in it feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

Angela and Ken have thought of everything. They've provided all you'll need for a perfect beach vacation. Our 5 year old daughter loved chasing lizards in the enclosed patio. Our 13 year old grandson appreciated the WiFi! If you're looking for an affordable, clean and charming place to stay close to the beach and restaurants, you'll love this place!

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row on Treasure Island. The weather could not have been any nicer. The cottage was as warm and inviting as it was last year. Ken and Angela make you feel like it is yours while you are visiting. Beach chairs, umbrellas (trust me, you will need it) and coolers all available for your convenience. Towels, linens kitchen supplies are available too. Eat in or dine out at many excellent restaurants in the area ( I highly recommend Salt Rock Grill). Enjoy your stay, you will love it.

Thanks again Ken and Angela,

The Zacher's

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful, it had everything you need, a lovely decor, very clean, near the beach to watch the sunsets. Use of chairs and parasols etc which save you a fortune not having to rent at the beaches. Angela and Ken were amazing giving us updates about the weather as there was a hurricane/ tropical storm and were very reassuring that all was going to be ok. Nice to know we had someone to help if we need it. This was our second time at the cottage and if we were in the area again this would be the place without a doubt we would stay. it is first class. A big Thankyou to Angela and Ken for letting us stay.

Just perfect retreat on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage is wonderful. We had just been visiting other parts of the USA and coming to Gulf Sounds was for rest and relaxation - which was exactly what we got.

We're a family of four (two teens) and we all loved it. The cottage is two minutes walk from the beach, you don't even need shoes to get onto the sand. So if you forget sunscreen or need to go back to make a quick lunch, it's easy. The air con is good and so is the wifi ( a must for teenagers) and such comfortable beds. We did make time in the evening to play one of Angela and Ken's boardgames - Catan, we really got into it! The beach on Treasure Island is beautiful white sand, Supermarkets are within a short drive and as you'd expect in Florida - plenty of places to eat. The free laundry room is very useful, we really appreciated that, as well all the beach chairs and umbrellas. Thank you Ken and Angela for a great holiday!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect size for us and one other couple. It was decorated beautifully and it was so nice to have everything we needed there at the house for us already. We were pleasantly surprised at how close the beach was. It was the perfect distance from shops and great restaurants. We would stay here again!
