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 Florida Central Gulf Coast

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.

Very clean, comfortable, and just walking distance to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Gulf Sounds! The place was comfortable and walking distance to the beach and other local businesses. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to feel at home. Everything was easy to find and instructions were clearly outlined. Kitchen was fully equipped and there is an outside charcoal grill available if dining in is desired.

Fabulous find!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 months and could not have had better accomodations anywhere. The cottage is so cute and had everything we needed. We didn't even need the air conditioning on as there was such a nice breeze with the doors open. We had plenty of room for our company and steps from the beach and John's Pass. Sandra was closeby and was there when needed. Thank you Sandra for renting to us and hope to see you again someday. I highly recommend this lovely Key West style cottage.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time here. For the price you won't find much this close to the water. Location is near Johns Pass, so we had lots to do. Would stay there again for sure.
