Experience Treasure Island Florida

The quintessential beach community of Treasure Island Florida.

Come discover the secrets of this west coast beach hamlet.  Beautiful wide, clean, uncrowded and white sandy beaches.  Clear water.  Rent the famous yellow cabanas and beach loungers. Throw your hat in a sandcastle competition. Or throw a kite in the air for the Treasure Island Kite Festival. Bike the boardwalk to lunch.  Get a little misty at the sunset.  Go fishin'.  Explore a sand bar. Get lost in a drum circle.  See what this community looked like twenty years ago - hint: just like it does today!  

Treasure Island History

Treasure Island has a decidedly retro feel.  So if nostalgia is your thing, you'll love a visit to Shrimpy's Blues Bistro where you can view photos from days gone by.  Or check out the Facebook page for The Treasure Island Historical Society. Read the history of Treasure Island by Bonnie Williams here. Or visit this page from the Florida Division of Library & Information Services for some fabulous old still photographs of Treasure Island.

Treasure Island Geography

Treasure Island is a 3.8-mile barrier island that actually is made up of five separate islands. There are also 3 distinct beach areas - Sunshine Beach to the north, Sunset Beach to the south and Municipal Beach/Treasure Island Beach in the middle. Treasure Island lies between the Gulfport of Mexico to the west and Boca Ciega Bay to the east. View this video of TI to get an overview.

Our location is convenient to the other beaches, St Petersburg, both the Tampa International Airport and the St Pete/Clearwater Airports and to Tampa Bay (25 minutes). Busch Gardens are a 40-minute drive away and Orlando and the Disney complex is about 1 1/2 hours away.

Atmosphere

Treasure Island maintains a comfortable blend of mom and pop motels, permanent residents, savory restaurants and beach fun.  It is know for its wide beaches, shallow water, plenty of room to spread out, and the boardwalk.  

Our rentals are the perfect backdrop for your visit to TI and even destinations themselves.  Our rentals are located in the quiet and peaceful area of Treasure Island.
