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 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.

Cozy, cute!

  • 5 of 5

Talk about OCD clean...this cottage is it! So close to the beach and decorated PERFECTLY!! The twin bedroom is close to the road, but if you have sleepers who have to have white noise or a fan, they will sleep through it. It would be nice to have a cart to help carry things to the beach. We planned a late flight to enjoy a last beach day, but with a strict 10 a.m. checkout we chose to shop the day away instead. The owners Ken and Angela are super nice, and we even made some new friends during our stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Kim, for the kind review. It was great meeting you. Sorry we couldn't accommodate a later checkout. Our cleaning person washes EVERYTHING, down to mattress covers and the duvets. If we have a same-day turnaround its tough to extend checkout. But we do when we can. When we travel, we like to be comfortable in our home-away-from-home. And clean is the first thing that makes us comfortable. We want that for our guests. Thanks for the feedback! We'll get a cart. Hope to see you again next year.

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.

Still love it!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our 2nd stay at Angela's beautiful cottage. Without a doubt, it is still a fan favorite for our family of 4! It was super clean, lots of amenities, such as free laundry, beach umbrellas, chairs and toys available, and wifi (CRITICAL if you have kids - LOL!). We were sad when we had to leave... Thank you, Angela, for having us again! See you again soon!

We were very satisfied with our stay! This cottage is cozy, beautiful and very clean. I would suggest looking at the cottage before going to grocery store, as it has everything you can think of and more. We can't wait to go back and will be making this our prime location in treasure island! The owners are very nice!

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cottage #1 Gulf Sounds was wonderful. The cottage is steps away from the beach and within walking distance to a major attraction John's Pass. The cottage is quaint, extremely clean and had all the amenities to make our vacation effortless. We can't wait to return for another stay!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is furnished with everything you need to have a wonderful vacation and is decorated in such a beachy cozy matter that makes you feel at home at the beach.. because you really are only a short walk from it. You are within walking distance to plenty of fun stuff on the island. I love my home away from home.
