Description from owner

Romantic get-away, a stone's throw from Sunset Beach.

Scandinavian Interior.

" Strandhytten" (The Beach-cottage) has sleeping facilities for 4. A queen size bed in the bedroom and a sleeper sofa for 2 in the living room

The kitchen is a new Ikea model. The cabinets are completely full of dishes, platters, cutlery, pots and pans.

A large refrigerator, glass top stove, microwave oven, toaster oven and an electric coffee pot makes this kitchen totally complete.

Linen and towels are included.

You can relax in the sun and water all day and cook a good dinner or go out to eat in the evening. Treasure Island is known for the many restaurants serving local or foreign dishes.

We are located in the center of seaside attractions like watching dolphins from a boat, or a dinner cruise with music and dancing. Deep sea fishing and para-sailing are other activities among too many to mention.

If you like to gamble, there a casino ship which sails out into International waters and provides a wonderful buffet of numerous dishes.

A dinner and dance ship will also take you out for a wonderful evening.

Our guests tell us that this is:"Paradise Found."

The International Airport in Tampa is one hour drive from the Island.

Busch gardens in Tampa is a Zoo but different in the fact that people are driven around in cages and the animals are free in their natural habitat.

Disneyworld, Universal Studio, Sea World etc. are located in Orlando;, a two hour drive

from Treasure Island.

The Peace and Quiet., the Sound of the waves, the beauty of the landscape and the Heavenly Sunsets make you feel like you are close to Paradise.

You can sit and meditate on the Beach or walk 3/4 of a mile North and you will find Cady's on the Beach, where you can dine in your bathing suit.

Beds: 1 Queen Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

“Best Fourth of July”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

This was such a fun cottage to stay in for the week. It was very clean, had everything that we needed, and it was close to so many fun places in Treasure Island and Madeira Beach with John's Pass. Michael and Gitta made sure that we had everything that we needed and were so kind and communicative. They are the best hosts. We were there for the week of July 4th and everything was so beautiful. It was just a walk across the street to get to Sunset Beach and it was perfect. We look forward to staying in this cottage in the future and we HIGHLY recommend this beautiful stay to everyone. We have never felt more comfortable and at home during a vacation. Thank you for helping us to create beautiful memories that we will not soon forget! Until next time, Laura and Sam

Owner's reply: Hello Laura and Sam, Thank you for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you again. Gitta and Michael

The location is excellent. Walk to the quiet beach with ease. The cottage is comfortable for two but does sleep four. It is well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies. There is a full size fridge, beach chairs and plenty of towels. There are picnic tables and lounge chairs in the outside common area for all to enjoy. Everyone is friendly offering tips for dinning and things to do. Close enough to walk to the small doggie beach too!

Owner's reply: Renee, thank you for your kindness. Gitta and Michael

Our second year here and the cottage was still perfect. Love the new up-dated shower! It had everything we needed and just steps from the beach. Our friends love to visit us when we are here! Looking forward to seeing you again next year!

Owner's reply: Dear Kathy and Mark, Thank you so much for your review. I want to thank you so much for the way you left the cottage. Everything was spick and span. This is the second time you left everything as neat and clean as you found it. Please, come back, you are the renters everyone dreams about. Sincerely Gitta

“Great Location”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

This was a very nice cottage, the kitchen is new and had everything we needed, including full size refrig, stove microwave, coffee pot, blender and pretty dishes. The new shower was very nice and there were plenty of towels. We enjoyed visiting with the other renters in the area and the cottage was just across an un-busy street from the beach. We enjoyed walking our dog through the very safe neighborhood. All and all very much worth the money.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your nice words. We try to do what we can to make it a good stay for our guests and we enjoy to hear that we have succesed. Michael and Gitta

“Perfect cottage !”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2013

Stayed 5 nights in cottage #2 and how charming ! Much better than we anticipated. Furnishings were superb - including all kitchen appliances and cookware. Decor was amazing - couldn't have been better. Very clean. Caretaker ( Donna) was very nice and helpful. Couldn't see the ocean, but a very quick walk across the street to Caddy's beachfront bar/diner made the whole experience superb since they put out beach chairs and umbrellas for a tip. Can't wait to go back and stay longer ! Best pet friendly place we've ever stayed - our little doggies loved it too !

Our stay at the cottage was great, relaxing. Loved that all you had to do was walk out the door and cross the street and you were at the beach. It was furnished with everything you needed to enjoy your stay. I would definitely come back and would recommend it to everyone. Michael and Gitta are very pleasant people.

Owner's reply: Thank you Debbie. Gitta and Michael
