Wonderful place for a relaxing beach vacation

My husband and I booked Florida last minute. Kevin was quick to respond to our emails and booking was easy. The day before we left I asked if we could have an early check in and it was no issue at all. We traveled to Florida from April 29-May 6/2016. After a horrible night stay in a hotel in Orlando we were super excited to see how nice this condo was. Super clean, and tastefully decorated with polished concrete floors and modern beach themed decor. It was the perfect size for my husband and I and we felt very comfortable there.The location was great as well. It is just a short walk across the street and you're right at the beach (there are many beach chairs in the condo to take to the beach with you; we left our umbrella as we could not pack it in our bag). The street is not busy at all and is very quiet compared to further up Gulf Blvd. We were able to use the pool across the street if we wanted which we usually did in the evening. The kitchen was stocked with EVERYTHING you need. We cooked almost every meal there except for a couple of evenings we ate out. Every evening we would take a bottle of wine and enjoy it watching the sunset while sitting at one of the many picnic tables on the beach. Caddy's and the Ka'Tiki hut are just a short walk up the beach. The day we left to come home we had to leave at 5am. Check out was easy with a quick drop of the keys in the drop box at TRS. We really enjoyed the condo on Sunset Beach in Treasure Island. I would highly recommend it and hopefully will be back some day.

This is a great condo that was perfect size for myself and a guest. The location is great as well. Short walk across the street and you're right at the gulf. I've walked further to get to the water at other spots that are on the beach so it truly is a great location. We were able to use the pool across the street if we wanted as well but did not because the beach was perfect. We did take advantage of the bbq grill and grilled some fresh grouper we picked up at a local market. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed which was great for even a cookout. Thanks for the opportunity to visit your place. Highly recommend it.

The condo was quiet yet close to a couple of restaurants/bars. If you need to go to any other places the free beach taxi is great. Just remember to tip! Had a problem with the toilet which was resolved quickly. The complex lost power one afternoon but the transformer was replaced in a few hours. Free wi-fi, flat screen tv in bedroom and living room . Perfect for two people, but might be cramped for a family. Well stocked with everything you would ever need. We ate out every night so we didn't use grills but I know they were available. Friendly people in other units. Great having a ground floor unit because the stairs were pretty steep. Not a luxury rental but nice.

The Condo was extremely clean and well furnished and up date. Perfect location and literally only steps to the beautiful white sandy beach! We enjoyed our morning walks on the beach to Caddys which is a great spot for breakfast! The owners are very nice and communicate quickly and effectively! We will definitely be repeat customers!

Kevin Cross

Owner's reply:

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, Amber! We love walking the short 50 steps to the beach too! We also love listening to live music and eating yummy food at Caddys on the Beach (with picnic tables in the sand!) for meals-even breakfast, just a 5 min walk away from our family's condo on Sunset Beach! But most of all, thank you for booking another week's stay for this summer! I was thrilled to give you a returning guest discount! Repeat business is the best complement an owner can get! Bye, Kevin

I stayed at this place for 2 weeks and found it to be a great little place to call home while on Treasure Island. The condo itself is small, but it has all the things you will need to have a great week. I was there with my older Mother, so I gave her the nice bedroom and I slept on the pull out couch. We shared the drawers and closet space and it worked out just fine. The couch was quite comfy, due to the fact there was an extra foam cover, plus extra padding on the mattress pad. I did not feel like I was sleeping on a pull out... it felt like a real bed. The rest of the condo has a clean, modern feel and is quite cheery with the topical color scheme used throughout the condo. We didn't cook much in the condo, but it appeared to have all the items someone would need. My only suggestion would be to add some beach-friendly Tervis cups, or something to keep a liquid cool while out on the beach. The internet was great, the air worked wonderfully, and there were plenty of bath towels for our stay. There's even a washer/dryer, if you need to take care of something while there. It's a really cute condo, particularly the polished concrete floor. It added to the character of the place and also made it bright and airy feeling. The fact that you can pull right up to the door to unload all your stuff upon arrival was fantastic. No dragging of big bags across a parking lot or up a flight of stairs - it was perfect! Sunset Beach is a special place with a great big wide beach, and no crowds. It's like we had the place to ourselves. Of course, if you want to join in the action, a 10 minute walk down the beach brings you to Caddy's - where all the action is. It has great food too! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful, relaxing stay on Treasure Island. The place comfortably sleeps 2 adults in the bedroom and one adult or 2 kids on the sofa.

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous renting a condo versus just staying in a hotel. After having driven my kids nearly 1100 miles, the last thing I needed was to find out that this was a scam. Well it wasn't! This condo was EXACTLY as advertised. It was small but comfortable and very quiet. The beach was literally steps away and there was only an access road to cross (very little traffic). Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you'd need. Grocery store was about a mile away, as were restaurants, bars, and shopping. Sunset beach is a great spot for quiet and relaxation, which I loved. My kids would have preferred a little more action, but I didn't get any real complaints as we watched dolphins playing in the ocean just outside of our condo. Amazing! All around an amazing trip. Would definitely suggest this condo for someone who wants quiet. We would rent again from this owner (already recommended to my parents) who made the process very simple. I may also look at other Vacation Home Rentals properties now after this experience....and may try something else next Christmas! (minus the drive though if I can afford it!)

Kevin Cross

Owner's reply:

Thanks for choosing my condo for your first vacation condo rental instead of a hotel, Jill. I really try hard to make my condo well equipped for my guests. It's great to know you enjoyed your experience and would stay again.
Thanks again for your business! Best, Kevin

Perfect size for me and my hubby. Clothes washer/dryer in unit was handy. No dishwasher, but we didn't miss it too much. Good size refrigerator and 2 TVs. Quiet area of beach was nice, you can walk up the beach to a bar/restaurant so take some cash with you when you walk (less expensive Tiki bar just across the road from the beach bar). John's Pass for shopping/eating (also don't miss the chance to go to Ted Peters for yummy smoked fish). Hubbards Marina fishing boats are great fun and have awesome employees.

This place is gorgeous!! When they say 50 steps to the beach they mean it. You do have to cross a small road however it's no different then staying in a condo on the beach where you have to go through the pool area and then over the doons just to get to the beach. The inside is well maintained and immaculant. Communication was awesome. I am hoping to be able to go back again in 2009. It is such a treasure find on Treasure Island.
