We are long term residents of Pinellas and can't believe we are living on the beach at such an unheard of price! DJ is the friendliest owner. Very well kept, bright sunny room with a back door, window in every room perfect location. I can't believe our luck highly recommended! Rich, Anna and 3 month old Mia

Our two week stay was from April 21 to May 5, 2012. Rich, the manager, was right there for any assistance needed and did a linen exchange after the first week. Both... More

Full kitchen and lovely decor I enjoyed my stay . Helpful staff and the other guests were very nice. Quiet. No one bothered me ever, but when... More

The place would have been great if it wasn't for long-term guest having domestic fights all night long.

My husband and I stayed at the Swashbuckler the entire month of February, 2011, and I can't imagine that we would have had a better experience anywhere else. Our apartment was well-furnished, extremely clean, and provided the ammenities that made us feel at home. From beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas, to a well-equipped kitchen, to clean linens whenever we desired... More

My family and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Swashbuckler several times over the past three years. We enjoy the laid back attitude of the area and proximity to the sugar-sand beaches of Treasure Island. The staff was attentive when we needed them but not a bother. We were there over the 4th of July holiday and... More

My husband and I used to live on Treasure Island from late 1980's to early 2000's. We used to book rooms at The Swasbuckler for friends and family. We came back this summer to visit old friends and decided to stay at The Swashbuckler. I was amazed at the changes. The rooms are all updated, clean, and nicely furnished. The... More
