About Jim Hebin, Shell Haven of Treasure Island

Jeanie has been handling bookings, reservations and customer support with Florida Coast Cottages for many years. "Beach House Jim" Hebin is the Property Manager of the Shell Haven, and has been into real estate and vacation property management since a very young age.

Why Jim Hebin, Shell Haven of Treasure Island chose Treasure Island

This is the THINNEST part of Treasure Island (merely two lots wide), and the lot across the street is the beach access parking lot! As a result, you can look out the back window at the yachts boating by our private dock on the Intracoastal Waterway - then simply turn your head 180 degrees and look our the front window to watch people walking up and down the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico across the street!

What makes this condo unique

Bring your boat or jetskis ... No Dock Fee (Slip Fee)! ++++ Free boat ramp is just 3 doors down +++ Caddy's Beachfront Bar & Grill is just 100 yards to the south (stumbling distance home!) +++ A short walk or jetski ride to Publix, downtown Treasure Island, great restaurants and 'watering-holes' +++ Incredible ocean sunsets

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm sending you this e-mail to let you know that my

family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves when we were

there in March. My niece had never been to

Treasure Island before and just fell in love with the

whole area. We will be coming back again. Also, your

manager, John, was such a hoot! He made everyone feel at

home. Shell Haven was so quaint! We all loved the

cottage and the surroundings. Like I said, "we will be

back" Thank you so much, Patti Parsons

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in Unit B. Great views of the water from the deck. Beautiful sunrises every morning over the waterway. The unit was absolutely charming, light, bright and airy. Great pet friendly atmosphere.

great spot, wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

This is our 8th year at shell haven. WE love the location, the convenience, the view all of it. You can walk across the street to the beach, sit and watch the dolphins in the back yard or fish off the dock. Oh, you can walk to many restaurants.

Perfect location for MLB Spring Training games with bay and beach in one!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay. Woke up to coffee on the bay and beach across the street. Perfect central location on the gulf. Comfortable accommodations. It met all of our expectations.

Great space!

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay. Good back yard on the intercostal. Steps out the front and cross the street for the beach. Our host was a very nice guy. The only problem we had was getting the coffee maker to work. Nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We recently changed all our coffee makers to self-contained units that don't require a breakable glass carafe... in response to your review here, we have checked the coffee maker in your unit and it seems to be working fine. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully fun & helpful friendly staff. A little piece of Paradise. Nice yard overlooking the bay with a fishing dock & its lighted for night time fun! There are chairs and tables, benches, grill,

The apt was clean & comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. Everything is there including cable tv & wi-fi.

A beautiful beach across the street, shopping nearby and great Gulf breeze makes Shell Haven a little piece of Paradise worth checking out!

Not the best experience..

  • 2 of 5

We had the best vacation because Treasure Island is a wonderful location and place to stay. We did not have the best experience however renting this unit. We wont be returning or renting from Shell Haven again. Thank you.

Owner's Response: You welcome. Sorry it was not what you expected. Our place is "Old Florida" style, it is an older building, but we keep it clean and in good shape. We are not like a Ritz Carlton hotel, with a front desk and bellhops; however, we don't charge $400/night. It is said that "price only matters in the absence of value"; and we aim to provide a good value... a nice place in a great location at a fair price. Thank you for staying with us anyways - we wish you the best in your future vacation experiences, and pray you find the place that is right for you! :)
